These are a few rules follow ed by R. A. Moore, secretary of the Wisconsin Agricultural Ex periment association, in the se lection of seed corn: First.-A4llow the ears to ma ture well on the stalk. Second.-Select the ears from promising stalks that are leafy, of medium size and which carry one good ear attached about three feet from the ground. Third.-Select only well form ed ears with plump, deep ker nels and good tips and butts. Fourth.--Avoid ears with long or short shanks or those attach ed to poorly formed stalks. When taken from the stalk corn usually contains from 20,to 30 per cent of water. The most convenient way of ridding the corn of this excessive moisture is by the use of artifidal heat, and the corn should be well dried out before It is stored away for the winter. Corn should never be placed against the south side of a build ing In the strong sunlight, as the direct rays of the sun will soon Injure the vitality of the seed. If corn is cured by hang ing under a porch or under the roof of a corn crib it should be stored away before hard frees Ing weather sets in in a dry room where It will not take in moisture from the outside air.
