Not only does this early gathering insure plenty of time for the eara to dry out thoroly before freezing weather, but it per mits the selection of ears from the most vigorous and healthy plants and from the stalks that most near ly meet the grower's ideal in regard, to height location of ear, the angle of the ear, etc. Like produces like ; and continued selection for these characteristics will tend to produce, a strain of corn in which all the i plants approach the ideal sought for.! In general, we may say the vari- eties of corn grown in Kentucky, would be improved if we could se cure mors stocky and shorter plants, i with the ears carried uniformly low er down on the stalk. Such a typej of corn would be easier to harvest j and be less likely to be blown down( by strong winds. In addition, it is, desirable that the tits of the ears' hang downward, as such ears shed i rain better and are less likely to be damaged. Another desirsble char acteristic is uniformity in maturity. I Only by field selection can we hope to influence the type of plant. j Experiments have not shown that j p.ny particular type of ear ia better i than another as far as yield is con-! ctrntd. TVjs the grower msy auit his own fancy in selecting a type cf ear. Uniformity of type is de sirable, however, aa an indication of careful selection and breeding. It is natural to .elect large tars for seed and there is seme evidence that the v lection of large ears may have some influence upon yield. Soundness one' freed in from dis eases are the most impartant quali ties to be sought for. A convenient arrangement fir gathering seed corn eara is grain sack suspended over the shoulder as is done in broadcasting grain by hand. It ia an added convenience to ve the mouth of the sack held open with a hoop. If most of the husks are carried in tre sack. Rules for Selecting Seed Corn: 1. From hills with two stalks (checked). 2. From stalks bearing two or more cas, or one good ear. 3. From good size stalk. 4. Medium height stalks. 5. Eavs of proper height from th ground (from 4 to 6 feet). 6. Shanks of medium length, ears pendant (hanging over). 7. Ears of good length. 8. Ears well rcundod over tips and butts. 9. Eara large around. 10. Ears with small cob and large kernels. 11. Ears with wedge-shaped kern-rls. CINCINNATI HEADQUARTERS STYLISH CLOTHES FOR WOMEN Style Quality P. L. L P. L. L. P. L. L. P.L.L. P. L. L 12th and Main 12. Ears with grains in straight rows. 13. Ears with grains plump and firm on the cob. 14. Ears with grains rather smooth dented. 15. Eara with grains not mixed (same color). The first seven rules apply to se lecting from corn field. Go thru corn and mark in some way the stalks you are going to select from and leave them standing, without topping or blading. Let corn mature natur ally on standing stalks. The last eight rules will apply to, selecting after gathering. Shuck the corn and put up in an open, dry place, or han;? with wire or string where rats can't get to it. Robert F. Spence, County Agent Berea, Ky. SWIFT PRODUCE REVIEW Altho less ceam has been received at the creameries, the market is not quite so firm, due to large quantity of under-scoring butter reaching the market. Considersble butter of the finer qualities is being withdrawn from storage to meet the demand for top quality, quality. Two shipments of Danish butter are reported, one small and the sec ond a larger rhipment Danish but ter is usually of very fine quality. Better care of the cream on the farm and more frequent marketing will tend greatly to improve the quality of the American product. Egg receipts are lighter, which Is natural at this season, and thtr has been an advance in th paying prices thruout producing sections. Receipts of poultry have been ample for current requirements, and the market is closing a little easier. It is reported there is a large crop of thickens in th country and marketing ia advisable.

T. McCormack, State Health Officer, another opinion in which he aaya that the person adver tising the nostrums from the wsgon also is subject to prosecution. This opinion is based on the law which states thai vendors of patent medicines muH pay $100 for their licenaea and then proceed to strength en this by declaring that it is imma terial whether the patent medicine ia sold by the vendor or otherwise. "Such sale," Mr. Hamilton sum med the situation up, "would un doubtedly subject the person adver Farm for Sale Bargain This (arm contains 100 acres and is loca ted 1 1-2 milei Eat of Kingston on the Kingston and Dreyfus Pike; good 8 room house, barn and other small buildings, all new.

In this connection the Kentucky Druggist the official organ of Ken tucky I'harmaceutical Association, contains this editorial comment: "Th writer agrees with Dr. Mc Cormack that no reputable druggist would be a party to any scheme thst would assist an itinerant vendor to distribute his worthless nostrums. But this profession, like others, con tains some weak brothers who can. not resist clinching the almighty dollar, even if there is a question of their abiding by the law. It ia for the benefit of our weaker brothers that ww bring this matter before th druggists of th State."
