How To Avoid Replanting Corn
Sure Way to Increase Yields 1
By J. C. Hackleman, Assistant in
Agronomy, Missouri College
of Agriculture.
How. much of your corn are you
going to ivplunt this year':' Why not
determine now not to do any replant
ing or planting over, ami lupin imme
diately to get the seed- ready? To
prepare enough seed for fifty acres
and have seed that will grow ia a task
which will not take more than two
days now, and it may save many
times that amount or even a whole
torn i cop later.
It if quite generally understood
that corn which is gathered in the
fall and thrown -into the i ib in large
quantities often has its germ injured
and therefore Its germinating power
much lessened. Even if this treat
ment does not kill the germ It will
injure it. and this means a weak stalk
in the field next summer and a rtih
bin at husking time.
.Many farmers claim that they de
termine the germinating power of an
ear of ecru at sigh: by simply exam
ining ihe germ, htu while this is a fail
test it is not accurate and often is
ery n isleaillng. Experiments havo :

a crib ur.d allowed to freeze before j
becoming thoroughly dry is materially
weakened and will often fail to ger- j
mil. ate even where the germ has the.
weak ears 10 be readily i'ecied and
thrown out.
The geniiinalor may be prepared by
making a box two feet by three fefl,
and three inches deep ( oic! pieces ol
two by four scantlings make a good
outside frame). The box is then rilled
with sand and holes are bored through
the sides or nails driven in the sides
about 2Mj inches apart smil string
stretched back and forth across the
box. These strings will divide the
box into squares into which the ker
nels ate to be placed.
The ears of corn tire then laid out,
and five-or ten kernels, preferably
ten, are taken out of eat No. 1 and
put down in square No. 1, kernels
from ear No. 2 will be in square Xo.
2. and so on until all the ears are
tested or the box is Ailed. The sand
is then wet down, ihe box placed in
a warm room and kept moist until
germination is complete, an examina
tion being made daily, it is always
best to begin, at the left and number
from left to right, as in that way no
risk is run in getting the ears and
their corresponding space mixed.
This process, so simple 'hat it can
be performed by any boy twelve years

(Note the method of tag-
appearance of being alive 'when exam
ined. It is, therefore, evident that
the best and most accuiate method
of determining the actual germinating
power of your corn is to use some
such germination box as shown in
tbe illustration.
Tbe time required to test enough
ears to plant fifty acres has been
found to be not over two days, and
this time divided among five or six
days will scarcely be missed. The
test la very simple. By placing a
mail peg in tbe butt of tbe ear and
placing the number of the ear on tbe
peg, tbe record of each ear can be
kept accurately and the test will be

old, is of almost untold value to the
farmers of the state if they will only
place it in operation. It lias been
estimated that the corn nop of Mia
souri is out short by a least 20 per
cent by poor seed which this germina
tion test would positively detect.
If this is true that a 20 per cent
loss is sustained each year, and it
seems from tests carried on at the
experiment station at Columbia this
year, that that Is a very sate estimate
tbe value of these little boxes would
be almost inestimable. With the acre

year this germination teat would save
more than $25,000,000 for the farm

So many inquiries are coming in
concerning the new certificate law
that I have decided to give through
these notes the opinion of the At
torney General which is as follows:
County Certificates issued priorto
January 1, 1912, are not subject to
renewal after that date, but are valid
only for the "life of the certificate,
since at that date section 10942 R. S.
1909 ceases to be a law and there is
thereafter no authority for the re
newal of such certificates, except that
section 10942, Session Acts 1911, pro
vides that any teacher who has had
five years' experience in teaching
and is employed at the time of the
taking effect of this act shall have his
or her county certificate renewed an
unlimited number of times on condi
tion that said teacher continues in the
same position (in employment of the j
same board) and is faithful in the
performance of his or her profession
al duties.
"All county certificates issued prior
to January 1, 1912, are valid only in
the county in which issued and can
not be endorsed in other counties.
"Under Session Acts, 1911, County
Superintendents have authority to
endorse only second grade certificates,
issued after January 1, 1912. Section
"All grades on a valid third grade
certificate may be transferred to a
second grade certificate. Section
"Under Session Acts, 1911, County
Superintendents have authority to en
dorse only second grade certificates,
issued after January 1, 1912. Section
"All grades on a valid third grade
certificate may be transferred to a
second grade certificate. Section
"All scholastic grades for a first
grade certificate must be certified
from the office of the State Superin
tendent of Schools. Grades from a
second or third grade cannot be
transferred to a first grade certificate
unless the papers for said certificates
were graded by the State Superin
tendent or were made in an Approv
ed Summer School.
"According to section 10947 all
grades made on papers graded by
the StateiSuperintendent are valid in
any county in any state, when prop
erly certified from the office of the
State Superintendent of Schools.
"In the Session Acts, 1911, there is
no provision for the transfer of grades
from a certificate issued prior to Jan
uary 1, 1912, to one issued after that
In regard to the professional duties
the State Superintendent has ruled
that this shall consist of all Reading
Circle work, attendance at all teach
erf ' meetings held and the reading of
good school journals.
The above is not what the school
people of the state were asking for
but one thing commendable about it
is that it will not lower the standard
of qualification for certificate and the
best teachers will be pleased with
that feature of it at least.
Most of our schools are taken and
each and every one should help to
to make their school the very best
possible. It matters not who your
board has employed, they may not
have the teacher you wanted most,
but they have a teacher and that
teacher will and should be yours for
the best school possible; so now in
stead of pulling back and putting in
the way,S get in line and push for a
good school and you will have a bet
ter one than by any other way you
can try.
The Reading Circle books for 1911
and 1912 have been received and I
am quite sure we have two books
worth the time and trouble of all
teachers to master. One is on Peda
gogy and is "How to Study and
Teaching How to Study," the other
is on reading "Reading in Public
Schools." An outline is furnished
with each book and teachers who are
not in Summer School will do well to
read these before taking up school in
September and then be ready for
better work when the regular reading
circle work does begin. These books

Five dollars ($5) to the one having the second best; three dollars ($3),
third; two dollars ($2), fourth; one dollar ($1), fifth. The essays must not
contain over three hundred words, be enclosed in a sealed envelope together
with a seperate sheet of paper bearing the name of the writer, and left at the
bank not later than July 1st, 1911. They will be passed on by disinterested
persons. The essays of those receiving the prizes will be printed in the news
papers published in Butler.
In addition to the above offer we have decided to give ten dollars ($10) to
the Bates county boy or girl fifteen years or under who grows the largest
watermelon; five dollars ($5) to the one who grows the next largest; three
dollars ($3), third largest; two dollars ($2), fourth largest; one dollar ($1) fifth
largest. The watermelons grown for the contest must be delivered not later
than September 1, 1911, at a place designated by the bank.
Several will get the money we are offering. Try to be one the number
will sell at the usual price of one dol

mail. We are counting on the most
successful year of the reading circle
work since it began.

She selected the scripture to be read

she requested the minister to preach

songs were: "Home of the Soul,"

"We'll Never Say Goodbyel in Heav
