This Is f ; :V' '\ not- the highest record. , I : The Michigan men and the Cdlorado i'c';! , lnenTaSd, In\ fact, all states are turning ' '\ , .to beans with a great deal of success. Tfeere are three main principles to be observed in the control of weeds. I They are: first, preventing the weeds I from going to seed on the farm, sec- 1 ond, preventing the weed seeds being I brought t o the farm, and third. In the ' case of perennials, starving out the un­ derground parts by preventing them , from making top growth. TREAT .SEED POTATOES , fhe Prevalence of Se»b_on.the_.HIgh-.

In addit'on to returning- actual fer­ tilizing elements to the soil. It adds a large quantity of Immensely valuable humus, If carefully spread over the fields. AMOUNT OF SEED CORN. [National Crop ImpcoVement Service.] From twelve to fifteen ears of seed corn are .required to plant tea acre. All corn should be germinated right now in order to test its vitality and you should throw out every weak ear you can find It will not pay you to plant poor corn this year I STILL TIME TO.SOW BARLEY Mellon.] C'op Improvement Service.] The scdfne time of barley sbon]d be done later.^ than f-at of qais' spring wheat es an early spring fjos't is more detr'mental to young barley than to other small cereals The sea­ son is usually a week later In-CanSda barley is sown up into June, but that is not advocated In this country Still, the second or third week in May will probably be safe this year A drill or broadcast seeder is com­ monly used and the barley is sown at the rate of 1% t o 2 bushels to the acre. Where it is desirable to seed the laid down to clover and timothy, 1 t o 1% bushels of eeed barley as a nurse crop ijS sufficient. priced iseed Potatoe s Thi s Make* It Imperative That They Be Treated With Chemicals 'Before' Planting. [Natl.nil Crap Improvement Sorri**,!* While the operation of .treating is comparatively simply, close attention must be given- to the direction and de­ tails followed absolutely. Your care­ lessness ma y mean ruin of the po­ tatoes or danger to children or stock. Simply—Be Careful. According to your conditions and equipment, the seed, potatoes may be| treated In crates,- loose in barrels or ; In sacks. Treatment must be done he- j-j fore th e potatoes are cut or* sprouted, j ' Th e commonest method is to mix ' /one pint of formaldehyde (bo surest, Mi full strength) with thirty gallons or water. Soak the seed stock in this solution for two hours, Just before you 1 are ready to start cutting. This solu-l tlon ma y be re-used two*' or three times, if no time Is lost between' batches. One of the easiest ways 1B to place the solution In a barrel and. place a sackful of potatoes In It at A time. t Corrosive sublimate is an excellent chemical to use, and will kill rhlzlc- tenia as well as scab, but it i s a dead­ ly poison -and must be kept where chil­ dren or stock will not get It. All ves­ sels used with this material should be carefully cleaned afterwards. If you prefer this, use* four ounces of cor­ rosive sublimate to tbjrjty- gallons of water, and soak th e potatoes for\ an t ur and a half The powdered chemi- I should first) be dissolved In hot water and then added to the main solution. Do not use metal vessels. Af­ ter treating, the potatoes should •be\ promptly washed In clean water until all traces of the solution ar e gone, and titey they should be carefully dried, the sooner the .better It only takes a little time and very little money to treat all your Beed po­ tatoes by either method, and it pays- big inl larger yields of better potatoes, free from disease.

In addition to 40 or 50-odd buBhels left for feeding purposes. I have black loam soil that has al­ ways been In the highest state of fertility I apply a heavy coat of stable manors in the fall, plow the field early in tbe spring, disk four times and har­ row until a firm seed bed is obtained For seed. I used eighteen of the choicest, highest testing seed ears which 1 could secure. On May 21st I planted, checking corn into hills forty-two Inches each way At this time I drilled in 450 pounds per acre of a high-grade fer­ tilizer The corn was given the very best of care, ar-1 as a result of this intensive cultivation and th e balanced plant-food ration, it matured by the 16th of September, a t which time I picked the seed corn and put it on drying racks in a heated drying house so as to be In first-classed condition for buyers.—Helron J.

PROPER SEEDS There Is Still a Fair Supply Quickly Available. / — [National Crop Improvement S«rvlce.} A great many of our farmers will not plant their full acreage this year on account of a supposed shortage of seeds.
