EDWARD eJ. HHJIV2IPE At Richmond Shoe Co., 800 Main St. WHEAT IS IH A GOOD CONDITION Reports at the Wayne County Horticultural Meeting Encouraging. INSECTS ARE WORKING. ALFALFA AND ALSIKE CLOVER, IT IS FEARED, ARE BEING DAM AGED BY LITTLE DESTROYERS FRUIT PROSPECTS GOOD. The regular meeting of the Wayne County Horticultural society Saturday afternoon practically develojed into a corn meeting. It had been announced by the president that as there would be no lecturer on the program and that the time would be spent chiefly In the discussion of the different methods of saving and testing seed corn. This announcement resulted in the representation of many parts of the county by prominent farmers, who have for many years given the sub ject of corn growing their deepest at tention. Wheat is Good. At the beginning of the meeting the president called for reports on the condition of growing wheat, clover prass and alfalfa of this section of the country. This resulted in the almost universal report, that, grow ing wheat at this time was in the best of condition; that the wheat plants had made an excellent growth before cold weather and with a very moder ate winter they have maintained a comparatively thrifty condition which, with the small amount of "heaved up-' plants-, gives the rating of wheat at this time about the best in recent ears. Danger of I njury. Clovers, both of one and two years standing, are beginning to look green already, and with the continued warm temperature, the fields will soon begin to show their greenness and reach a stage of growth that makes them very liable to injury from the late spring frosts Insects Busy. Alfalfa and alsike clover were among i ue other crops tinu rocvived some consideration. 1; is feared that the msecr which has in recent years been devastating the fields of the red clov ers, would injure the roots of tnese two crops. It will take time, it was pointed out, to decide the important question of the growing of these crops, as this insect has already been reported to have attacked one of them in certain localities. Seed Corn Scarce. From the expressions given by those present at the meeting tUere wi'.l evidently a scarcity in the. snuply of go,l seed corn in thi lo cality. Several of the more emvfu! farmers sure their se-.l com prior to gathering time. Others wait until :1k'' corn is gathered and then sort out the ears as it is throwu into the crib. Others do i,o; think it is necessary to go to this trouble of preparing for emergencies and simply go to the crib at planting time to get the supply for seed. A very unfortunate feature of sav ing the seed corn and placing ir in cord-likp piles in warm places, it was point! out, is the fact that this does not bJwst injure, (he germination of YOUTHS'. seed. Stephen Kuth cited a case , where ears of corn which were so phiced were, on examination, found j to be not more than one-half suitable j for germination. The reason for this he said, was supposed to be due to an ttnequaled drying out of the grains and cob of the unseasoned ears. Wallace Reynolds said he had per formed an experiment in testing the germinating qualities of yellow and white corn. Fifty grains of each var iety were taken by him and placed in copper boxes, prepared for growing the same, and alter two days notes were taken as to the number of fertile grains. It was found that the white corn possessed the best germinating qualities, while only half of the grains' of the yellow corn grew. J The president said he had examined about two, hundred bushels of corn and that he believed about two ears of the entire lot would be fit to be plant ed. Thomas Klleman, Caleb King. Richard Sedgwick and John Mock-woj-ih, were of the opinion that too much care could not be exercised in tho selection and care of seeds, while Joseph Helms, who is considered an expert judge on corn, advocated the plan of selecting tho seed and placing the ears to dry in the sun before the time of gathering in the fall. Mr. Pickett, living north of the city, was apparently the only one present who felt confident that his crib corn would germinate. From a test made by him of many of his ears, he said, that the greater part of the ears pos sessed germinating qualities. He at tributed this condition to be largely dm to the variety of corn which ma- tured so early as to escape the un seasonable weather that followed crib bing time of the ordinary varieties. Good Fruit Prospects After the discussion on corn, Nath- j an Garwood, Stephen Kuth and oth ers gave reports on the conditions of fruits at this time. They were very confident, in their expressions of the good condition of fruit trees,-vines and canes, as the wood was so thoroughly seasoned last, fall, together with the other benefits connected with the fact that there was no fruiting last year, and with the advantage of the mild winner, they were certain all fruits were now in the b.-st of condition and predicted that this year would produce the most bountiful crop in recent years.

If it is, you cannot get well until you restore nerve strength Your nervous system is nature's power house; the organs of your body get their power from it. If the power is not there, the action of the organs is weak, and disease (sick ness) follows. Dr. Miles' Nervine cures the sick because it soothes the irritated and tired nerves and gives the system a chance to recuperate. Try it. and see if you do not quickly feel its bene ficial effect.

There must be a standard of decen cy iti the manner in which saloons in Wayne county shall be conducted, ac cording to members of the Board of Commissioners, and- their words and actions during tho last few weeks in dicate that if a license is granted to a saloon keeper who has proved him self unfit to be intrusted with the sale of intoxicants, it will be the fault of the good citizens of the community. Though Wayne county has never been an easy place for liquor law vio lators to get licenses to conduct sa loons, the reins have been considera bly tightened during the last year or so until now the saloon men are dis playing unusual alertness in their ef forts to keep closely within the pale of the law.
