Corning, March 29.—A striking ex ample of the remarkable development in values of Iowa farm land was pre sented in the appearance here of the Burlington seed corn and soil special train which has as itp mission the urg ing of farmers to waste no land on bad seed and to exercise modern meth ods in conserving the fertility of the soil. This is because land has reach ed the $100 per acre value and scien tific methods must be applied to make th^ investment profitable. The importance of land values 'Was accentuated by' the presence on the train of K. H. Hunter of Des Moines,, Bpecial agent for the Burlington rail road, who formerly llVed at this place. Mr. Hunter had the distinction of be ing receiver for the famous Icarlan community here when the court order ed it sold out twenty-seven years ago. The land was then sold for $14 per acre, and but a few years before that had been bought for little over a dol lar an acre l?y the Frenchmen who came here to establish an ideal com munity of interests. So within the last half century the land has jumped in value from one to one hundred dollars pet acre. The Corning meeting was the con clusion of tne second day's itinerary of the corn special. The train, carry ing exports from the state agricultural college, will be out for two weeks, practically covering the territory in southern Iowa. Heart to Heart Talks at Sidney. Sidney, March 29.—Heart to heart talks by agricultural experts to over three thousand farmers of southern Iowa were held today from the Bur lington seed corn and soil special train, now on a two week's itinerary over the Burlington system in Iowa. Farmers from the surrounding terri tcry of seven towns turned anxious ears to the words of advise offered and listened to discussion of seed corn tests that have already been made irom corn in this territory. The tests develop that, not Over fifty-one per cent is fit to plant as the remainder is either entirely dead cr germinates very poorly. Experience during the past several years has made the farm ers apt students and they are taking seriously to the problem of increasing the productiveness of their soil and in maintaining it. Prof. H. A. Mauser, one of the principal speakers of the State Agricultural college corps can not be accused of being a rhetorical farmer. He owns and operates a farm of his own in Marshall county and is able to answer every question concern ing practical farming that has been asked of him. Miss Clara Cowgill, county superin tendent of Montgomery county, joined the seed corn special at Villisca and rode with the party to Red Oak, secur ing information from the agricultural experts for use in connection with the agricultural teaching she has started and encouraged in the country schools of her county. Already she has asked every student in the county to test ten ears of corn for use in planting on their parents' farms this spring. Prof. Johnson Reelected. Centerville, March 29.—At the an nual meeting of the board of education, Prof. C. J. Johnson was unanimously elected superintendent of the local schools for the fourth consecutive year. 1 1 v-'V 1l8-TthJ KINNEY HEADS INDEPENDENTS ANNUAL SE8SION OF PHOtyE MEN A SUCCESS— GRUHL GAVE ADDRESS.
