"s-ELEOTINCr SEED CORN." By far the most important crop grown in Virginia is com. Its total valuation is nore than four times at gre.t aa to? bacco. Io 1906, Virginia produced 45,. 188,000 bushels which, valued at 60cta per bushel, was worth $27,112,800. We have unexcelled naturai advantages for corn culture, but tbe average yield per aero jg f_r below the possibilities, being now about 24 bushels per acre aa compared with 42 bushels io Ohio, and 39 bushels io Iowa. We can greatly in? crease the yield by better methods of culture, and by using better seed. We bave just received /rom the Vir? ginia Agricultural Experiment Station, ht Blacksburg, circular No. 4, ".elect? ing 8eed-Ooro." by Lyman Carrier, which gives detailed information opoo this subject. The common practice of taking seed-corn at random from ears stored in the crib is largely responsible for low yields. It is not enough to select the largest and moot perfect esr.; these ears should bave been bom by the most desirable plauts. So it ia best to select seed-corn now, while the ear is on the stalk Choose the largest and most perfect ears, well filled out nt butt and tip, and with long, wedge-stuped kernals; born low down upon stout, medium-size, short joined plants. Prefer plants bearing two large ears. Store the ear* ii. strings of fifteen, io a dry, warm, well rentila'ed piac, as a room over tbe kitchen. A little care In thise respect* often increases tbe yield fire or mer bushels per acre. An increase of even one bushel per acre next year in Vir? ginia, as a result of careful selection of teed, would add over $1,000,000, to tbe wealth of tbe Hit4, with no extra coat of ertlliziog or cultivation. Tbis is ooe of be most important au!j x's before the nt rai rs of the state. Tola circular can >. had by mukiog application to tbe virginia Agricultural Experiment italian, Bltcksburg, Va.

BULGARIA INDEPENDENT. In tbe aticiert capital of Tirnovo tbe .dependence of Bulgaria was proclaimed yesterday with Prince Ferdinand the Cz.r of tbe Bulgarians es a ruler. Our if the Bulgarians is recognized to mean more than czar of Bulgaria, because it ia a distinct it timatioo tbat he regards his .oumry as having sovereignty over all the people of thst blood in the near east The Bulgarian coup was supported by Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria, wbo moouoced to the powers of Europe that lie bad aooexed Bosnia and Herzegovina. RosBia will propose the calling of a congress of the power, foi a gen.ral re? vision of the treaty of Berlin. Great Eritain has made mediat ry pro? posals to Turkey and Bulgaria. France will urge Turkey to accept Bulgarian independence as ao accom? plished fact. Servia shows a d epoaition to fight rather than see Bosnia and Heiz'givina annexed t. Austria. Turkey believes tbat the outcome will be a conference of the powers to consider the whole eastern question, and views Auttria and Germany as having encour? aged Bulgaria to act at this time. Tbe eflect of Bulgaria's action at this time is expected to be disastrous to the reform movement in Turkey. Tbe fe r.ign effie ;s of Eogland, Franc, Germany and Russia tte actively en? gaged in trying to prevent war. Rustie will propose a congress cf tbe powers to consider a revision of the terms of tbe treat/ of Berlin. Tne powets sre disposed to regard the coop as tn accomplished tut. Ihe Paris Temps publishes a dispatch from Vienna sayirg that the Bu'gariao and Turkish armies are moving toward the from!' r. Tbis is not confirmed, and ' the belief is that Bulgaria will remain j on the defensive.
