DRYING CORN Corn can be dried very successful ly. It will retain its flavor. Many prefer it to canned corn. Boil the corn on the ear, first, then cut it off and spread in this layers on trays with unpainted wire screen bottoms (pans and plates can be used) and I placed in the suh and wind, or by placing in an oven slightly heated with doors open. The drying must be done fairly rapidly or the corn will sour. Corn is one of the most diffi cult vegetables to can. Drying the corn will have the cans for vegetables that cannot be dried so readily.

WHEN TO CUT SWEET CLOVER FOR SEED In cutting sweet clover for seed it has been found that from 1-5 to 3-4 of the seed shatters. One way to re duce this is to cut the seed crop early. Some recommend cutting when 3-4 of the seed pods have turned dark brown to black. The field will have a brownish case at this time. In some cases a delay of a couple of weeks in cutting after this time has resulted in as much as 90 per cent of the seed shattering. Boxes can be attached to the binder so as to catch a good deal of the seed that shatters. Many prefer letting the bunches lay a? dropped by the binder or self rake reaper for a week and then hauling direct to threshing machine instead of shocking it. The seer shatters less on a cloudy day.—Agr. Ex. Dept., N. Dak. Agri. College. The Zulus like to sing, but their sinjj iag and music are unlike those of any other tribe or nation.
