Do not plant corn too deep, is the adrice of the College of agri culture of the University of Illi nois. "Experiments on depth of plant ing conducted by the Illinois, In diana and Ohio experiment stations show that the greatest yields were obtained by planting the corn one to two inches deep," says a state ment issued today. "In light, open eoils or in dry soil the corn may i be planted teeper. In heavy or h -.,-,, n,h.. i., lets may not be able to force their i . " v1-" way up to the surface. In any soil, the corn need be planted only deep enough to insure rapid, vigorous germination. Any greater depth of planting requires the consumption of an unnecessarily large amount of plant food stored in the kernel before the plantlet reaches the sur face. "When a grain of corn germi nates, a root starts out downward from the tip of the kernel. Short ly afterwards the stem pushes out above. About the same time one or more additional temporary roots develop from the germ. These roots are of importance in supply ing nourishment for the plant only a short time. When the plant is a few days old a cluster of perma nent roots begin to form. These grow out from the joints of the stalk about one inch below the sur face of the soil. "It seems to make little differ ence whether the corn is planted one inch or five or six inches deep, these permanent roots come out at about the same depth below the surface. These roots rapidly ex tend outward and downward. The most extensive development of the rnnt K-,.m in thA ., ...-p. w,thin tne flrgt few inhes of the , ,,, s. ,.. n.t 1 available plant food is to be found ,0. tV, , . that portiori or the environment whjeh wi yied them the eag,est livine. Later the roots extend much deeper until at maturity thev may under favorable conditions fill the soil to a depth of three or four feet or even deeper. "It seems, therefore, that thei plant regulates the depth of its root system regardless of the! depth of planting." WEEDS SHOULD TF EMI I PR Ijnill nrtillirillllllf Illinois Seed Analyst Says Pests Are Easy to Destroy at Present. Weeds are in one of their weak est stages of growth at this time of the year and therefore most easily destroyed, Albert C. Wilson chief seed analyst of Illinois, said today in a statement in which he urged Illinois residents to aid in riding the state of weeds. "The weather conditions this spring have been only fairjy favor able to vegetation growth, conse quently, while weed seeds have germinated they have not made a verv raDld growth." he said. "The cultivation of land for spring grains n.v iinrt'nas terminated the growth of any rt l na !fiat were started and the plowing hock isiana Yor cQrn vin pet rjd of many more Rock Island j which have started and with the ; . Rock Island , frenuent cultivations of the corn to conserve the moisture the weeds will be kept under control until the corn is laid by. "If anv noxious weeds such as Canada thistle, quack grass, horse nettle, field bindweed or any oth ers prevalent in d'fferent localities are found in the corn after the last cultivation, they should be kept from growing by the use of a hand hoe every week or 10 days. "A rainy season prevents the pardener from getting into his gar den, therefore, weeds get the start of him. As soon as possible all weeds should be pulled or hoed out. thus giving all vegetables a chance to nroduce an abundant crop. "By neglecting to destroy weeds they cause heavy losses to crops because they injure the quantity and quality of the crops in which thev grow and also increase the la bor required to take care of the crops. "It is estimated that weeds re duce the yield of corn by 10 per cent: tame hay. 3 to 1 per cent; potatoes. 6 to 10 per cent; spring grain. 12 to 15 per cent: winter grain. 5 to 9 per cent: fruit and vegetables.-0 to 6 per cent, and pastures, 5 to BO per cent. Who can afford to suffer these losses? "Land values are very largely controlled bv the prevalence of weeis as evidenced by farms aban doned because of nuack grass and Canada thistles. To overcome this condition communitv effort in weed eradication is the only possible mean bv which results can be ac enmnlitibed. It is practically use- f for one land owner to spend laenr ft" itionev to control weeds tipca ir "eight""" do the same. .If community soirlt and pride i aroused, the weed problem will 6oon end."

Chicago, May 13 Trade In wheat was featureless until the last 30 minutes of the session. Previous to that time a firm tone was noted with buying, mostly local. A fea- ture at the opening was the buying of 500.000 bushels of September by I an export house. Leading longs put a little May wheat into the pit tne bulge abont n:3o a. m. and this wag XoUowed up by Dy Armour and this surted many of the local longs to unload. Late features reacted with them. Ar mour bouses were credited with selling these futures. There were 300,000 busels of wheat bought to come to this market and 125,000 bushels of this was Nebraska hard winter, sold by Minneapolis mills to be shipped via Duluth.
