A gentleman who has bad a great deal j of experience in corn growing has; prepared a few notes for as in which' be dwells upon the fundamental; principles that must be kept in Tiew if food corn Is produced. He says: "It is well to deal with the soil as If you were going to hare a dry season, because, as a rule, the grower who tiest conserves soil moisture is the' one who gets the big crop. All soils are crusted in the spring and when in that condition they dry out Tery quickly. It 13, therefore, a good practice to barrow or disk the ground Intended for a bumper corn crop Just as soon a possible in the J spring. This applies whether the i ground was-plowed last fall or not.! Indeed, in that case It dries out a! little quicker, because the soil Is usually rough on the surface and ; tough surfaces evajwrate moisture atj a rery rapid rate. If the ground was , in com last year and the old stalks i are still standing, it will pay to disk the surface in advance of plowing. Not only should it be disked, but it should be disked .early, because this creates a mulch and. furthermore, it brings about favorable conditions for the germination of wed seeds ho that these are destroyed later when the land is plowed. In the case of fall-plowed land, possibly the harrow will answer the purpose of creating a mulch and keeping the weeds In check. It is quite true that In the rush of other work this matter of stirring corn ground early in the spring is not given attention, but no ,xnan can hope to raise prize winning Rrsi in Hrs aw QaaCrjr Firat im Rmlta - Fiwmt im tmritjf j Fin im Ecememy ! . 4 and for these reasons Calumet Baking Powder it first in the : hearts of the millions of bouse wives who use it and know it. 1ICTTVTB HKHI3T AW AIDS an. mm mwm ii CHiCAOOT HAH LEAVES CHILD III ROOflG HOUSE CIlirPLED BABY AGED 2 YEARS !

As a matter or ract, it neips immensely in getting a good seed bed. When the surface soil Is disked it plow better and the furrow Is more friable, so that it is much more easily worked into a nice, fine seed ed. On the other hand, if you plow the hard soil without surfaoe disking it will turn up lumpy and it Is s big ,task to smash the lumps toy the operation of tillage implements. Some good corn growers even go so far as to double disk the ground before plowing and also double harrow it. When this Is" done a nice mellow soil is turned into the botton of the furrow so that the upward movement of water is encouraged and the surface rootlets of the corn thereby kept well, supplied. 'It is impossible to overemphasize the benefits that come from the free use of the. harrow after plowing. It brings aboat a Ann condition of the 8eef bed and it favors the free liberation of.plant food. Those who get the big yields., that is, yields running from ' seventy-five bushels per acre up, are always firm believers In the free use of the harrow. It Is not enbuch to simply plow the land, plant the crop and then expect to bring things into fine condition by the use of the ' Cultivator after the crop appear above ground. A little work on the surface with neavy im plements before planting will ac complish much more in a given time than can .be done with a cultivator between the rows after planting. "If, for any reason, the soil gets wet 'and It has to be plowed when it is moist, it will be more or less lumpy and, in that case, the land roller ought to be used it it is avail able. Alternate rolling and harrow ing will help . to get rid of the lumps and. furthermore, this process will maice the roil nice and firm. If pos sible, however, the land should not be plowed until it Is reasonably dry eo that it Is not sticky. , "It may seem strange that all this advice should be given regard ing the care of a crop when it is the intention to pick out only ten ears for show purposes. As a mat ter of fact, ten good ears of corn cannot be picked even from a forty-acre field unless the crop has been given good attention from start to finish. Good ears are not the result of accident. Of course they must inherit certain characteristics from the parent -seed, but, even apart from that, a high state of perfection can only be attained when good tillage methods have been employed so that the plants' have been well fed from the beginning. Fortunately, those who give the best attention to their crop tn the hope of getting ten good ears wui tne Individuals who will get the best yields and will, there fore, mate tne most profit out of tnetr corn crop.
