It will cost you a very I small amount to test your seed and plant those of strong vitality and ' you will be more than amply paid for your trouble when it is harvest ing time. I shall give only a method for 1 testing seed corn, but the same can be applied for other seeds. After you have carefully selected your corn in the field and kept it 1 from the weevils during the winter, then husk and carefully select the I ears that most closely approaches I your ideal for your seed. Take an ordinary box about 2 feet wide and 3 feet long and any depth. 1 Fill this box with saw dust to about 3 inches of the top or sand may be used either. Get 2 yards of cheap domestic or some other white goods and tack one end of the domestic over the saw dust or sand very closely, then mark this off in squares of about 2 inches. Mark each square with number or letter and after numbering each ear accord ingly, take 10 grains of corn from each ear and place in the square marked like the ear from which the corn is taken. Carefully pull loose end of the cloth over the seed after all squares have been filled. Put more sawdust over the top of this cloth and then wet thoroughly and I put the box in a warm place for the seed to germinate. In about a week after the corn has been placed, as shown above, you may remove the sawdust or sand from the top cloth carefully and raise the cloth care fully and you can see which ears will sprout best and select the ears of the strongest vitality for your seed. The same box may be used for a whole planting season if care fully handled. Rid yourself of the cry of wire worms and insect pests when it is a poor quality of seed planted. SJ. V.

Cost of Living Can be Reduced Mater-' rally if More Canning is Done BY MISS IVA LAY The coming industry as a manu facturing and commercial enterprise is being developed as rapidly im proved methods, and the increasing demand for consumption will per mit. How great is the service thus rendered in consuming the food supply, can scarcely be over esti mated. By far, the greater part of the food products put up in tin cans are perishable in this nature, or grown in sections of the country where the market is already glutted, and, but for the process of canning would go to waste, It is apparent, however, to stu dents of the food supply, and the conservation that the commercial canning factory cannot hope to do much more in this line than it has been doing. The chief desire now. is to encourage the canning of fruits and vegetables in the domes tic kitchen...,to save that which now goes to waste on the farm. More home canning done at the proper season, would enable the average family to have fruits and vegetables throughout the year, would greatly reduce the cost of the food supply in the family bud - get, and would save an astonishing amount of food that is now being wasted. Fifty per cent of all vege tables, fruits and berries that grow in the country, go to waste, simply because they are produce] in com munities where marketing facilities are inadequate, and where house wives haven't learned to care for their surplus products, The practical, sensible work being done in the girl's Tomato clubs, is having a tremendous effort on living conditions. These clubs in connec tion with our public schools, have worked many miracles. Miss Buvens deserves much credit for that which she has ac complished here with the Girl's Tomato Club. One member re marked, "you know you haven't any idea how many tomatoes we put up at home, nor what it means not to to have go to the store every time you want anything." And she was one of the girls who were just "sortie interestedi," but so encour aged that she intends to be more YOU don't know what hour sickness will visit your family. Then there are other reasons why every man should have a bank account. Suppose father and mother or si"ter or brother were badly sick and wanted you at their bedside. Suppose you lost your t position or nmet with fii ancial reveres? A savings at c ;unt would assist them. 81 STARTS A SAVINGS ACCOUNT HERE WASHINGTON BANK & TRUST COMPANY FRMNKINTON---BOGALUSA.--ANSIE fý m, mm interested this year. In the first place, it encourages good gardening by stimulating the desire of each girl to grow, sound tomatoes, and as many of them as possible. It produces a knowledge of do mestic science, hitherto unknown in many districts, by teaching the physics and chemistry of cooking. It advances the cultural standard of living by giving to girls who never have had any spending money whatever a supply of money, al though it may be small, that can be spent in many ways that adds to the pleasure of life. Then, they make far more healthful home life. by adding a supply of vegatables to the family table during the winter months where, in many cases, the diet has consicted simply of fat bacon and cornhroad. Home canne ing undoubtedly may he used to re duce the cost of living in the family. Even those who ore aceustomtd to commercial canned g oo d s in the winter do not realize that they sometimes n," a dood price for the goods shipved froml distant sections of the country, where in their own neighborhood in the summer months a'surplus of the same product goes to waste.
