Now is the time to insure next year's corn crop- Home grown seed insures mature corn next year. Now is the time to secure the home grown seed. Select the seed ccrn in the field- This gives an opportunity to see the kind of stalks that the ear is grown on, as well as the kind of ear. The stalk is an important con sideration.The North Dak. corn crop will be largely handled by .^machinery, and a corn should be grown that can be handled in this way. One of the requirements is that the ears be carried high en ough from the ground so the corn can be cut with the corn binder. Another important point a good ear from a hill that has produced three or four good ears is beter than a similar ear from a hill that has produced just one ear. Food Value Corn plant increases in food value quite rapidly from the time it tassels out till it ripens. This means that even when the corn is to be used for fodder or ensil age, it should be allowed to be come nearly mature in order to secure the greatest food value, as well as the best food value-. The so-called fodder corn, that grows a big stalk but no ears, contains but a small amount of food value. When the seed corn has been selected, the next thing is to cure it the curing consists in drying the seed. If it freezes before be ing dry, the germination qualities are destroyed. As soon as the corn has been gathered, hang it up in a place where the air can circulate freely, and where it is protected from rain. When free zing weather comes,if the corn is not dry it must be kept in a room kept above freeing. Artificial heat can be used in drying corn, but it is best to let the air dry it for awhile at first. Important Crops. Corn is fast becoming one of the most important crops in Nor th Dakota farming. The rapidity of this progress depends very largely on where the seed is grown when imported seed is grown year after year, progress will be slow when home grown seed is used, the improvement made each year is saved, so that next year's crop can be made that much better. This adaption of seed corn to our soil and climate conditions must be made right in the local ity. Better seed corn can be se cured from your own corn field, if well cared for, than can be brought in from a distance- Gatheriing seed corn is not as big a job as may seem when one considers that one bushel of seed will plant six to eight acres. A good way is to secure a grain sack tie a strap to one corner of the bottom and the other to a corner cf the top.The sack can be carried with the strap over the shoulder. This leaves both hands free and it is the easiest way of Why Not Spend Your Vacation at Yellowstone Park isR SEASON 1914 Juna 15 to September T5 No where else in the world is there a place so rich in nat ural phenomena.

FARM FACTS Where there is a silo there is prosperity. 1 here is not enough of tke community spirit among our rur al it tries. The laws relating to business are wholly unsuited to the trans actions of the farmer. The waste of effort through impractical (methods of farming is the greatest tragedy of the age. Something is wrcng in our marketing system when a small crop brings more money than a bountiful one. Co-icperation between practi cal farmers and proficient busi ness men will eliminate ignorance and prejudice- The nation's menu must be made up frcihi the fields,pastures, orchards and gardens, and to farm intelligently the farmer must know what is needed. We must give the same care and consideration to a system of co-operative laws, extending to the fat'mer the faculties adapted to his business that is now afford ed corporations. Farm tenancy is the greatest menace now confronting the na tion and can only be checked by affording the tenant and the la borer facilties for acquiring prop erty and by reducing the high rates of interest which are now sapping the vitality of agricul ture. Under the present system of marketing, it is possible and of ten occurs, that people in one part of the United States literally ^starve for the want of a product, while the same product in anoth er part of the nation is wasting for want of a market. An Appeal to the Womei of the World The officers of the National American Woman Suffrage As sociation have issued to the or ganized suffragists of twenty-six countries an appeal to the women cf the world to demand peace. The text of the appeal follows: "The cloud of a great interna tional war darkens all Europe and the shadow of the conflict hang3 over all the nations of the world ensuring disaster to all people and the turning back of civiliation for a century to come. "During the past hundred years women have given their toil not only to motherhood and the cares of faimily life, but also to the building up of the great industries of every country. They have devoted thought and energy and have made great sacrifices to develop education, establish reforms for the betterment of hu manity. Hundreds of thousands have sacrificed their lives to the life-giving vocation of mother hood- Yet, without one thought of the sufferings and sacrifices of mothers who have reared sons,or of the large industrial) burdens that war will impose upon wom en, who have to do their own work and the work of the men called to the field of battle with out consideration of the little chil dren who will have to be taken rom school or from play for in dustrial tcil -thus wantonly im posed upon them by the govern ment whose duty is to protect and shield them this curse of a mediaeval war is thrust upon those whose will and wish have net been consulted. "Is it that hundreds of thous ands of their sons may go down to death before the terrible ma chinery of modern war, that the nations call upon women to give their youth, their years of toil and their labor for a higher civiliza tion? Have you reared sons only to become prey to the ambition of kings and exploiters? Shall the strongest and noblest of the races of men be sacrificed and only the weak and maimed left to perpetuate mankind? "The suffragists of the United States call upon the women of -the world to arise in protest against this unspeakable wrong and to show warcrazed men that between contending armies there stand thousands of wcttnen anc children who are innocent vic tims of men's unbribbed am bitions that under the heels of each advancing army are crushed the lives, the hopes, the happi ness of countless women whose rights have been ignored, whose homes have been blighted and whose honor will be sacrificed if this unholy war does not cease and reason and justice take the place cf hate, revenge and greed. This is not a national is sue it involves all humanty. "Let the women of every nation involved in war make their men understand that the highest patriotism lies in conserv' ing life, wealth and energy and that war means not conservation, but destruction of all that is best in civilization." Building Amer ican Marine Washington, Aug. 25.—Plans fcr building up a permanent American merchant marine by the purchase of foreign ships to be operated by the government went forward yesterday in con gress and at the White House. In the house, Representative Alexander introduced the admin istration bill for the incorporation of a $10,000,000 company to own and operate ocean steamers under supervision of a shipping board composed cf the president the secretary of the treasury, the postmaster general and the sec retary of commerce. The government would sub scribe for net less than 51 per cent of the capital stock by an appropriation. Ships would be bought by the sale of $30,000 000 Panama Canal bonds. President Wilson reiterated his determination to urge the/ ship purchase plan and he said he ex pected it to be in operation with in two or three weeks. Reports that he had considered the ad visability of abandoning the pro ject, he said were without foun dation. The fact that private capital had shown no indication of a desire to act unless the gov ernment guaranteed securities.he declared, merely knade it more necessary for the government to take the initiative. The president believes the government will be able to develop new trade routes and make a project desirable to private capital and to meet that possibility the bill would provide for sale of the governent's stock fn the company at any time the shipping board deemed that ad visable. Other plans for fostering Ainerican shipping trade made little progress. The war risk bill, which already passed the senate, was halted in the house by the failure of the rules com mittee to get a quorum. Rep resentative Alexander later intro duced a bill to authorize a special rule for immediate consideration of the measure with debate limi ted to one hour. a»..»..a.fayy iiMiniiiti OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COM MISSIONERS Auditor's office of GoHeti Valley County North Dakota, at Beach.
