MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NINE TEST ALL SEED CORN BEFORE PLANTING Work Can Be Done at Home, Claim Samples May Also Be Sent to Iowa State College. Use only tested corn and small grain for seed, warns R. H. Porter, head of the seed laboratory at Iowa State college. Although samples o£ corn on which tests have been run at the seed laboratory show unusually high germination this season, occasional samples of seed received are poor in this respect. Oats and other small grains should be tested, as well as corn, before they are used for seed. Farmers having seed which' they wish tested should see their local county agent and malce arrangements to have their samples sent to the seed laboratory at Ames. The county agents also have the latest information on the seed supply situation and on seed problems. . Gel Representative Sample. Samples of corn should no ! be smaller than 500 kernels and from not less than 100 representative ears. The kernels should be taken from differen parts o£ the ear. Samples - of small grain sent in for testing should not be less than 1 quart and should be made up from grain taken from different parts o£ the ear. Samples of smal grain sent in for testing should not be less than 1 quart, and should be made up from grain taken from different parts of th seedbin. The easiest method to do thi is to mi.v together equal portions of seed taken from the differ ent sections of the bin and then to choose the test sample from Sells to Farmers ing corn may be obtained free of charge by writing the Extension Service, Iowa State college, Ames. Small grain may be tested for germination by planting from 200 to 400 kernels of each kind of grain in a box of sand or soil, Mr. Porter explains. These seeds will germinate at a lower temperature than will corn and may be put in the basement. After the seed has germinated and the stalks or shoots have come through the surface of the sand or soil they may be counted to ascertain what percentage of germination a given lot of seed will give. A slight increase in farm real estate taxes in l!)3G was reported on the basis of a preliminary tax survey of slate tax oEticials and tax students in 38 slates. Ray Kcllar, an employe of the concern for a number of years, is in charge of the farm and factory department of the Curric-Van Ness company hardware s t o r e , handling cream separators and barn equipment. He lias a wide acquaintanceship amongr farmers in North Central Iowa. this representative seed. Between 90 and 9B per cent germination is considered satisfactory for oats, barley or rye. Wheat germinating 90 per cent strong is considered sntisfaclory for seed. May Use Ha§r Boll Tester. If corn is to be tested at home, 'the rag doll seed corn tester may be used satisfactorily.

From that humble beginning a hundred years ago, there developed a group of great factories, each devoted'to the manufacture of a particular class of implements to stand with John Deere plows in forming the John Deere full line. Long life and continual growth in any line of manufacturing depends mainly upon the simple honesty--upon holding rigidly to the rule of quality first. Time has fully tested the John Deere line, and has given it prestige-^--time's badge of quality and success. CERRO GORDO IMPLEMENT CO. 115 EIGHTH STREET S. E. PHONE 444
