Pawing over the ears oi corn after
they have been stored away in the
crib and picking seed from the like
liest looking ears is a method that
belongs to the ox-team and the cra
dle. - .
Up-to-date farmers nowadays
choose their own seed corn from the
standing stalks where they can ob
serve tne growing conditions, an
thus often immensely increase the
value of a given lot of seed.
When selecting seed corn in the
field, keep your eye out for the stur
dy upright stalk of medium height
and thickness, with short Joints and
broad leaves carried cil down
which stands in an average soil
Then look for an ear well matured
and set fairly low, of medium size
cob, a not too large butt and a husk
protecting the tip. Remembering
also that one good ear is better than
two nubbins, be satisfied with the
single good ear on the stalk when
the stand is thick.
Another advantage of selecting
corn in this way is that stalk charac
terlstics can be noted and selections
made accordingly. For Instance, the
more or less hereditary tendency to
produce suckers can be reduced by
selection; stalks blown over by
storms are inherently weak and
should be avoided; under no circum
stances should ears from diseased
stalks be considered.
When selecting corn in the field
it is often hard for the grower to
pay as much attention as he would
like to the ear characteristics. It is
a good plan, therefore, to select wo
or three times as much seed as is
needed, and to go over it again in
the spring with an eye to ear charac
teristiC3. Often growers carry for
ward good seed from one spring to
the next in case of emergencies that
might arise from unfavorable weath
er or storing conditions.
On account of i the relative high
price. of hogs, many farmers have
planned to produce fall litters of pigs,
instead " of fattening their brood
sows for the market, according to the
specialists of the Division of Exten
sion, University of Tenr,esee. The
ratio between the prices of hogs and
corn makes this a commendable prac
tice. With corn at .present prices, 8
or 9 cent hogs should return liberal
profits, and farmers "who raised
good spring crop should return liber
al profits, and farmers who raised a
good spring crop should consider
themselves fortunate. Witlf another
big corn crop practically assured, the
production of fall pigs has been en
couraged. While hogs may not hold
their present high market position
it would take , a material drop in
prices to make feeding unprofitable
at present corn values. Men who
have gone through similar periods of
depression in years past say that
once again nogs nave, come to me
rescue of the farmer. Time and again
hog3 have : "rooted" the farmer out
of distress, and there is every reason
to believe they will do it again. An
abundance of corn plus good pork
prices bid fair to hold up the morale
of the farmer, provide him with mon
ey to pay his interest and taxes, and
encourage him to stand ready for
another year.
Farm Breeding Pen.
The question of a special breeding
pen on the farm is apt to bring fortn
doubts of its being a workable plan.
However, it is easy enough and can
be managed in at least two ways that
any farm woman can carry out, says
Mr3. Kate M. .Wells, 'poultry special
1st, Division of Extension. The most
important point is furnishing a sep
arate house or room for tho roosting
and laying quarters for the breeders.
This can most easily be oxme by put
ting a partition In one end of the
poultry house, large enough to house
the breeders. Twenty-five hens can
be housed in a 5x16 or a 6x12 room,
arranging it as to roosts, nests, feed
hoppers and water vessels as in the
larger laying house.' . ; . -

Canal Tonnage Greatest on Record.
Washington, Sept. 22. Despite
the , world-wide trade depression
which held during the fiscal year
1921, a new high record was estab
lished for the Panama Canal, accord
ing to official reports received here.
In a total of 2,892 Bhips traversing
the waterway, 1,212 were American,
exclusive of Government-owned and
chartered vessels. The nearest com
petitor of the-United States was
Great Britain, whose flag appeared
on 970 snips, carrying 3,zz tons,
against 5,179,000 tons freighted un
der American colors. . :
With the single exception of the
Mexican oil traffic, the current issue
of The Panama Canal Record points
out, "the trades in which American
vessels secured any considerable ton
nage had the United States either as
origin or destination,"
