Counsel for defendants gave notic

that in the meantime, or until the
appeal is perfected and bail can
be secured, the defendants be
confined in the Lawrence county

The charge of Judge Elliott
was regarded as eminently fair,
and more in favor of the def
endants than might have been ex
pected, in view of the fact that
the court had during the trial nil
id out practically all of their
evidence, except such as tended
to show previous good character.
He said in substance that it made
no difference how many of the
state laws they might have viol
ated, that had no bearing on the
present trial and that the jury
must be satisfied beyond a
reasonable doubt, that the defeti
dants had been guilty of a con
spiracy, in order to find them
guilty under the indictment.

No one will ever know the loss
that was sustained in South Da
kota the present year by plant
ing poor seed corn. If the loss
could be computed, it would run
up into millions of bushels. Ask
almost any farmer why he has
such a poor stand of corn and he
will nearly invariably, auawcr
you in a single word,—4
Well, eut-worms have destroy
thousands of acres of corn
this year but all the poor stands
can not be laid at his door. Poor
seed lias probably had as much
to do with poor stands as have
that of cut-worms. It is much
more easy to control the seed
than it is to control cut-worms.
An article will soon appear in
these columns on

For the present 1 wish to con
sider the question of Uood Seed
The first essentia! In suturing
good seed corn is to select ears
that have gotten ripe prior to the
average time of our first frost.
.u the central part of the state
the first frost usually occurs a
bout September 15th. Seed corn
in that part of the state should
therefore be selected prior to
that date. If it does not frost un
til October 1st, and seed corn
picking is deferred until that
time many ears will be selected
that were not ripe at the aver
age time of the frost and the pro
bahilities are that the plants from
these ears will all get nipped by
frost the following year. The
tendency is to select the largest
ears. The largest eais get ripe
last and if one waits until after
the first frost to select his seed
corn, if frost comes later than
usual, he is very liable to have
his corn frost bitten.
fn selecting, an ear of seed
corn from the stalk remember tha
all thQ corn from that ear next
year will resemble very closely
the characteristics of the seed
ear. If it grew on a large stalk,
nearly all the stalks next year
will be large: if the ear had a
long shank, practically all the
shanks will be long next year if
the seed ear droops on the stalk,
all of its progeny will droop. In
short the characteristics of the
entire plant will be reflected in
next years crop.
Select an ear that is ripe. Se
lect an ear that is growing on a
stalk just high enough to husk
easily. Select an ear that droops
enough to shed water easily. £&
lect an ear that is filled out
well on the tip and the butt.
The next, and most important
step of all, is to thoroughly dry
it. Do not throw it down in a pile
to dry becauseif you do it will
heat and its germination will thei
be poorer than crib corn. A good
plan is to tie the ears together
with stout cord and hang them in
an airy place where they will
rapidly dry out. But in
tying them care should be taken
that the ears do not touch each
other. There are many seed coin
racks on the market at this time.
They are all good and serve
their purpose admirably.
After the seed is thoroughly
dry, it should never be allowed
to become damp afterward. Freez
ing damp corn is what kills the
germ. It should be stored for
winter in the driest place on the
premises. Hard freezing will not
injure perfectly dry seed corn.
Light freezing will injure damp
seed corn.
