Morrill In Tri-State Farmer, is to prepare a seed bed or testing ground of from one to two acres far removed from other fields. To begin with, no ear should be used which is Imperfect from which to select grains for the seed crop, selecting such type of corn that you wish to grow, the work of selection should be followed year after year, selecting the best ears that sho t an Improvement over previous years. Any plant that is deficient in any re quirement should not be allowed to de velop a tassel, and especially a barren stalk. As to corn feeding, the seed plots thould not suffer for want of plant food. From field experiments with fer tilizers on corn in the West last year, on soils of average fertility, a higher per cent of potash than ordinary fer tilizer contains gave remarkable re sults and would undoubtedly give sim ilar results on the average lands of Georgia. In Georgia last year were used more fertilizers with corn than was ever used In years before, and with jwoper fertilizers and more attention to the selection of seed, and intensive culture, there is no doubt or reason why the average yield of well-bred corn should not be Increased lu the South, and especially Georgia. Storing Winter Applet«. Many growers must be reminded of the Importance of getting fruit to stor age as promptly as possible after pick S ig. The United States Department of grlculture has demonstrated that fruit deteriorates more in a few days between the time of leaving the trees pnd the time it reaches storage than it does In ns many months of storage at a low temperature. It was formerly thought necessary to put apples In piles in the orchard, to "sweat," but this has been shown to have been a mistake. Don't do this; but, on tlie contrary, send your apples to storage at once. In refrigerator cars, it the weather is warm and the dis tance is great Many of the best ap ple handlers want their fruit in storage before night of the day it is picked, if gt all possible, and there is no doubt that they are right In regard to this.— Western Fruit Grower. Safe Corn Shredder. As the corn shredder has killed and maimed a great many people, the be low suggestion for reducing the danger of using them will be welcomed. A man who runs one of them says : "To unchoke shredders with safety to the feeder, take u croquet ball and saw It in halves. Then bore a hole In the cen ter of the flnt side of one of these partb, through to the center of the oval side. Then insert the end of a broom handle In the hole, beginning at the flat side. Fasten this with a wedge or nail. Keep this tool in convenient when the machine clogs stir up the fodder with the ball end and all Is right again. Try it." Convenient and Clienp.

Value in Cattle Foods. The value of cattle foods depends w largely upon their digestibility. There ^ is more protein In straw than corn fod der, but the latter Is more digestible. Some coarse foods are valuable, bow* ever, In assisting to digest the concern trated foods by giving bulk to the mass and separating tlie materials, especial ly when the coarse foods are reduced jo a fine condition.

Japs Are Reserved. Tokio —In discussing the anti-Japa nese agitation by a portion of the American press, all classes whose opinion is worthy of consideration, are significantly reserved. The two pre vailing sentiments noticeable are a strong disdain and contempt for the papers in America which entertain the idea of a war between Japan and the United States, and Implicit confidence in President Roosevelt, who is re-, garded as the true type of an Ameri can. People are inclined to smile with satisfaction at the outbreak of wliat appears to them as a ridiculous agitation and at the barbarity prac-1 toward innocent children in a Christian land, which had been class ed by missionaries and others as a on,y country which possessed the true religion and the only true God. The Japanese have no doubt been smarting under the assumed superior ity of Christian nations, and now find such an occurrence amid Christian civilization, serve in ther judgment as the confession of an inferiority, moral and otherwise. Moreover the successful war with Russia hag inspired the Japanese with great confidence and although the possibility of a war with the Unit ed States is not now generally enter tained, it may not be amiss to point out, that some are inclined to regaru as significant Secretary Taft's deci sion in regard to fortifying the Ha waiian islands. lowans Killed in Collapse. Odebolt, Iowa—Three men were killed and seven more were injured in the collapse of the ruins of the Madione-Moti general store here.

Imitations have been placed upon the market so closely resembling All cock's Plasters in general appearance as to be well calculated to deceive. It is, however, in gene'ral appearance only that they compare with Allcock's, for they are not only lacking in the best elements which have made Ail cock's so efficient, but are often harm ful in their effects. Remember that Allcock's are the original and only genuine porous plasters—the best ex ternal remedy known—and when pur chasing plasters the only safe way is to always insist upon having Allcock's.

COlïkÜOUS BLOOD POISON NO LIMIT TO ITS POWERS FOR EVIL Contagious Blood Poison has brought more suffering, misery and humila^ tion into the world than all other diseases combined ; there is hardly any limit to its powers for evil. It is the blackest and vilest of all disorders, wrecking the lives of those unfortunate enough to contract it and often being transmitted to innocent offspring, a blighting legacy of suffering and shame. So highly contagious is the trouble that innocent persons may contract it by using the same table ware, toilet articles or clothing of one in whose blood the treacherous virus has taken root. Not only is it a powerful poison but a very deceptive one. Only those who have learned by bitter experience know by the little sore or ulcer, which usually makes its appearance first,.of the suffering which is to follow. It comes in the form of ulcerated mouth and throat, unsightly copper colored spots, swollen glands in the groin, falling hair, offensive sores and ulcers on the body, and fn severe cases the finger nails drop off, the bones become diseased, the nervous system is shat tered and the sufferer becomes an object of pity to bis fellow man. Especi ally is the treacherous nature of Contagious Blood Poison, shown when the infected person endeavors to combat the poison with mercury and potash. These minerals will drive away all outward symptoms of the troubles foi a while, and the victim is deceived into the belief that he is cured. When, however,the treatment is left off he finds that the poison has only been driven deeper into the blood and the disease reappears, and usually in worse form because these strong minerals have not only failed to remove the virus from the blood but have weakened the entire system because of their destructive action. S. S. S. is she only real and certain cure for Contagious Blood Poi son. It is made of a combination of healing blood-purifying roots, herbs and barks, the best in Nature's great laboratory of forest and field. We offer a reward of $ 1.000 for proof that S. S.
