Ufcy IWbyvIHe, k! M4y, m Much discussion and considerable anxiety have been occasioned in' ait parts of the country where corn is nn importapt crop by the recent ap pearance of corn diseases which at tack the roots, the stalk, the leaf, the ear, tho husk and the tassel. Tho' most prominent of these diseases is the corn root rot which, - unless checked, threatens to spread over tho entire corn belt and cause a tre mendous loss.' While the spread of these diseases is just jenuso for alarm, wo fortu nately know enough about them to be able to fight them successfully and if every corn grower will take the simple precautions necessary, these diseases may be checked and, m time, nearly, if not entirely, wiped out. Investigations seems to have es tablished the following two facts regarding these diseases: 1. The diseases live in the soil. 2. .The diseases may be carried over in the seed. Knowing these facts the remedies suggest themselves. They are as follows : 1. Rotate crops. Do not plant corn in the same field it was grown the previous year. 2. Test every ear of seed corn this spring. Every kernel that de velops mold and every sprout or root that shows any discoloration is a warning. Do not plant those ears. Soil that grows corn year after year or every other year will accum ulate and carry corn diseases to u greater ertent that will land that is in corn only once in every three or four years. More rotation in which more grasses and clovers' are used will clo much to reduce the danger from corn diseases carried over in tho soil. If wo continually grow the same crop on the same land year after year we may expect to have trouble. Test your seed corn. Last year was a good corn year. In nearly all parts of tho corn belt the corn ma tured thoroughly and as a result many farmers are inclined to think, it wjll not be necesary to test their seed corn this year. 'Failure 'to test seed corn may be a fatal mistake. Seed Corn should always be tested, particularly just now when we arc menaced by these corn diseases. Take great care in selecting ears for testing. Discard every ear that has a brown or discolored shank. Throw out every ear that broke off in shreds. Discard every ear that sliows mold. Throw out every ear that has a bleached tip or has rot ten kernels on the tip. Select only ears with kernels that are bright and oily. Corn may be tested in either a rng doll or a germination box, but tho best' method is to use the combi nation improved, rag doll and germi nation box tester recommended by the Indidna Experiment Statiop. Extension Bulletin No. 97 issued by the Agricultural Extension Depart ment of Purdue University, de scribes this method as follows : "The improved rag doll givoe nn accurate tost for germination and also' indicates in a large measure those ears which are infested with molds and those infected by the or ganisms causing the root rots. "The advantage of this improved method lies in the use of a sheet of heavy glazed paper, whleh is wrap ped up with the cloth and which acts as insulator and prevents the spread of Uje, molds through the cloth. This limits their growth to the seedlings from the kernels which are infected, and diseased ears can thereby be detected. "The cloth which is tsed to pre pare the dolls may be either bleach ed 6r Unbleached heavy muslin. The muslin should be purchased in 61 ineh -widths aad the -width of the holt can be tken as the length of the soil. The muslin kg shrunk and ttiea torn into 12-inch strips. This BMkes a doll aproximately 12 by 54 "It -will Vecraire approxisately 12 yards of wHb to supply eloths to lwepare 8fl delte, the contest of eae sfceteld be shrunk ia large pieees and the starch filler should be re moved by prolonged boiling and thorough rinsing of tho cloths be foro using them. "Thb doll cloths must be thor oughly sterilided by boiling water before each test. An ordinary wash boiler serves well to sterilize them. In enso cleansing them with soap becomes necessary, they should be thoroughly' rinsed before using. They are then ready for making the test. "The first step in preparing the dolls is to lay out on a clean sur face of newspapers the strip of the insulating paper. The best paper has been found to be a 70-pound pear water-finish fibre paper. It is a standard grade of paper and can be purchased in '2-inch rolls through any book store or printer. A clean strip must be used for the test. The paper should be at least from eight to ten inches longer than the cloths. The cloth is then placed on the fi bre paper preparatory to placing the kernels. Care must be taken not to roll the dolls too tightly or too loosely. "After the dolls are made they are placed in a double-walled box. The germinator box conpists of an outer and inner box with sawdust dnd limestone between them, and cross rods to separate the dolls during the test. "The inner box is '2 by 24 inches and 18 inches deep, inside dimen sions. The outer box. can be of any size, but should allow at least a 3 inch space for the sawdust between it and the inner box. "The walls of the inner box should bb perforated to permit damp air from the sawdust to gain access to the inside of it. The cross rods should be fitted inside the smaller box at 3-inch intervals and about 3 inches from the top. "A box of this size provides room for 32 dolls which gives it a capac ity for testing G40 seed ears. A 3 inch layer of sawdust or shavings mixed with approximately one fourth of its weight of agricultural limestone or air slaked lime should be placed in the bottom of the in ner box under the dolls during the test. Do not use caustic lime for this purpose. 'The bottom of the outer box should, be perforated to allow excess water to'UrAin through it. The 'ger minator box should be placed on strips of wood to facilitate rapid drainage. At no time should the sawdust be permitted to become sour. Adequate limestone will pre vent any sourness from developing. "The dolls are placed in the box in a vertical position. They are sprinkled twice daily with luke warm water. It is not necessary to immerse the dolls in -water at any time during the test. The bags cov ering tho box also are kept moist rts well as the sawdust around the inner box. "A temperature of approximately 80 degress Fahrenheit should be maintained in the inner box during the test. The box should, therefore, be kept in a warm place. Satisfac tory results have been obtained by thoroughly saturating tho sawdust around the inner box with boiling hot water twice daily. If this is done, ezira precautions are necessary to prevent wetting any of the dolls with the hot water because this would kill the young seedlings and prevent the projier interpretation of. the results.'' The kernels should be left in the germinatidn test for 10 days or until the sprouts have a chance to grow fonr or five inches long. This is im portant just now because should a kernel be diseased, the diseases may not manifest themselves if the ker nel is left in the germination box on ly a week. Qn opening the rag dolls examine the sprouts and foots of the germi nated kernels carefully. If any of the kornela show mold or any of the sprouts or roots are discolored in any way, the safest plan is to dis card the ears. It does not pay to take ehances. It is better to throw out a healthy ear than to plant a diseased one. If every corn grower will rotate his erepSj test his seed corn and throw out every saspieious ear, eera root rot and these ether eon) dis- sands of dollars saved. CINCINNATI RETAIL MER CHANTS OPENING THIS WEEK Creation from Paris, dresses made in America, that mor0 than favorably compare with tho trouss eau we have been reading about for Princess Mary, will be shown in Cincinnati this coming week. In fact the merchants havo out done themselves to bid for the fa vours of our women folks for their spring bonnets, coats, dresses, etc., and the fashions are so alluring and tho prices so attractive that the Mayor himself had issued a procla- mntion setting aside the two days of March 14th and 15th, as official Spring Opening days; days on which the well known hospitality of the Queen City will be expressed by thoughts, words and deeds. They have gone so far as to provide free parking space for those who come in automobiles. Tho mayor's proclamation is as follows : "Most heartily do I approve of the Cincinnati Retail Merchants' Association to call the attention of our people and of our friends nnd neighbors in adjoining states to cer tain dates of tho coming week for a general Spring Opening of Cincin nati's retail business. I, therefore, proclaim that Tues day and Wednesday, March 14th and 15th, 1922, be observed by all our- citizens ns "Cincinnati's Spring Opening Days". That our business concerns make preparations for entertaining their friends and customers with displays of goods in their most attractive forms, and that our citizens gener ally let the people of the Middle West understand thnt the Queen City is ready to put her retail stores on record on the dates above men tioned. The gates of the city will be open wide, both to those who would do business with us and to those who would have us do business -with them. GEORGE P. CARREL, Mayor. Camargo and Vicinity Rov. John Ware, one of our high ly respected citizens, has been quite sick fpr somo weeks. An early re covery is the wish of his many friends. Mr. Amburgy and family, of near Means', have moVed to their new home, the Norris farm, here. Victor Baxter has been confined to his home for two weeks with flu. Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Norris were duo to arrive at Pasedena, Cal., their new home, early last week. Their numerous friends reluctantly gave them over to the land of fruits and flowers. Mny their new surrbund- ings meet their every expectation, and to their new neighbors and friends we commend them as worthy members to any community. Ken tucky's doors stand ajar.

The Sunday afternoons are al most due when tho laddie hitches up "Dobbin" nnd takes the lassie bug gying, and, greatly to "Dobbin's" delight, he may on these occasions leave his speed in tho stable. "Dob bin" also is a good listener, but a poor talker. Gardening time is with us, and it might bo well to say to the amateur not to set onions too close to tho spuds, as they have "eyes to water" and be sure not to plant corn in reach of the horse radish.
