That is the advice of H. D. Hughes, head of farm crops at Iowa State College, who suggests that corn should not be discarded for seed if the ; first test does not show satisfactory germination. The seed may be entirely satisfactory, but , the test may .have been poorly executed. . Good seed corn is scarce this spring, and no one can afford to let go of seed and begin again the search—with the possibility crt getting- something not• as good, Hughes warns. On the other hand, no:farmer can take risks with poor seed, making it doubly important to test seed corn a second-time. A dinner plate filled with moist sand land covered with a second plate turned upside down makes' a good tester if kept at room temperature. Corn that was tested in December and found to have high enough germination to save for planting may be wholly unfit for seed now, Hughes reports, due to the unusually low temperatures of January and February. More Iowa farmers are buying seed corn this year than for many years past, says Hughes, and most of the seed is of lower germination than usual}. The high moisture content at the time of the first killing frost, combined with the extreme winter weather, has injured much corn to such an extent that to plant it would mean planting fields over again 2 or 3 months after the regular corn planting- Market; Bert Archibald of Lenox; and County Agent Robt.

GRAY The following clipping, taken from the Corning Free Press, tells something more about the death of Frank L. Gray, former editor of the Time Table: Frank L. Gray, formerly a resident of Corning, where he was connected with the publication of the Adams County Union Republican for a number of years, passed away suddenly at his home at 244 South Olive Street, Los Angeles, California, last Thursday morning. Mr. Gray was 66 years old last January 11. Death was caused by a sudden and unexpected heart attack, although the deceased suffered a lighter heart attack about ten days prior to his death. His family believed that he was well on the road to recovery. He awakened Thursday morning and' remarked to his wife that he had the best night's rest since the heart attack a few days before. Five minutes later he was dead. He was buried in Englewood cemetery at Los W P A workmen uncovered something unusual last wee! while digging up an old water main that is being replaced The original pipe, of galvanized iron, was laid in 1913 and has been leaking badly during the last year or two. It is now being replaced wjith cast iron pipe. When one 30-foot section was taken out it was sawed in wo and about midway of the oipe was found a child's base- mil bat which has evidently oeen in the pipe ever since it was laid in the ground 23 years ago. Inside diameter of the pipe was 2 inches while the bat neasured a full inch and three- quarters at the thickest part. fortunately there was only one house service on that particular ine of pipe and it joined the main before the .bat was reached. The bat shows evidence of hard usage and had a cracked place in it. It would be interest- ng to know what man placed he bat in the pipe when he was a small boy. The bat is on display in the Time Table window. The Time Table; is printing the supplement to the bar docket for the March term of court which will convene Monday, March 30.

Conner of Bed- foard today announces her candidacy for the office of Recorder of Taylor county, subject to the will of the Republican voters at the primary election June 1, 1936. MLss Connor was born and raised in Taylor county, educated in the Bedford public and high school, completing a two year commercial course at the Highland Park college in Dee Moines, Iowa. She has never z^sked for a political office before. Should she be successful in her candidacy and be accorded the nomination to the office she seeks, Miss Conner pledges that the office of Recorder will be administered in a competent and economical manner; also there will be no cost to the county for a deputy here. Robert Donaldson?'has one of those unbelievable 'odc|itiels at his farm southwest of Lenox and it has been attracting a lot of attention among the neighbors. It is a lamb, about six weeks old, that walks on its front feet. The lamb was born early, in February!" and during the extremely cold weather or that month both its hind feet were frozen off. The little fellow has plenty of vitality and he doesn't seem to be the least dis- iouraged by his misfortune. When he wants to travel he simply raises his hind quarters .nto the air and goes places on his front feet. We saw him in action Wednesday morning and were astonished at how 'he is able to change his pace. He can saunter along slowly on his two feet or he can speed up and make good time. He lifts his body from the ground with.lit- e effort and when he gets tired and wants to lie down and rest tie lowers his body to the ground without a jolt. When it comes ime to take his lacteal nourishment he takes it standing up. The lamb has perfect balance nd has little difficulty stand- ng in one spot when he wants o do so. Carpenters went to work on the First National bank building Wednesday and have erected a scaffold that reaches nearly to the top of the building. Last winter freezing of moisture in the plaster loosened a large piece of the ornamental cornice around the top of the building and caused it to fall. Since then several smaller pieces have fallen and a space along the south side of the building has been fenced off to keep anyone from getting hurt if some more of it fell. The last piece to fall crashed down Monday night. Chas. Wurster and LIFE STORY OF N. C. DAVIDSON N. C.

FIRE VVT HAIGLER HOME LAST THURSDAY Considerable damage was done to the roof at the home of Miss Winifred Haigler last Thursday morning when started from a fire, evidently spark, burned through the shingles and sheeting on the north side. The fire had a good start when it was discovered and was burning too strongly to be put out with hemicals. The house is very tall which made it difficult for the firemen to fight the fire. Fire damage was confined to the roof but there was some water damage to the interior. Chas. Eckler are doing the repair work. Paul Davis, John Porter and Verlin Sweeley have been named as members of the committee to put on the proposed basketball banquet. A date will be selected in a conference with Supt. Parker and will be announced. Every effort will be made to avoid having this date conflict with anything else. ond year Cjanterville has won the state tournament. The fact that Cumberland went so far in the state tournament should make the girls of Lenox, Farragut and Martensdale feel a lot better. They were all beaten by a team of championship cali- bre. Lenox postoffice patrons can soon expect to see a new face at the stamp window. Grades on the postmaster examination were received by the applicants Sunday and the three high grades were made by J. B. Wood, Lenox had the honor of holding t'he district basketball tournament that furnished the runner-up in the state contest. Cumberland, winner of three straight games here, easily handled all opposition in the state meet until the girls tangled with Centerville in the final game. The Cumberand girls gave a good account of themselves even in this game but the Cenjtervtlle girls were fajr too good for them, This is the sec- H. C. Killion and E. J. Klarner.
