almost bed-ridden, and had to give up. We had three
doctors. All the time, 1 was getting worse. 1 had bad

Cardui Woman's Tonic
If you are weak and ailing, think what it would mean,
to you, to recover as quickly as Mrs. Navy did. For more
than 50 years, this purely vegetable, tonic remedy,for women,
has been used by thousands of wer.k and ailing sufferers.
They found it of real value in relieving their aches and
pains. Why suffer longer? A remedy that has relieved

TAX CERTIFICATES TO BE SOLO.
County Treasurer, J. F. Trim-
mer, who last fall at the sale of
land for delinquent taxes bought
about $45,000 worth of tax cer-
tificates on behalf of the county,
is now negotiating the sale of
the certificates to Kansas City
parties. While Mr. Trimmer
has authority under the law to
sell the certificates he submitted
the proposition to the County
Commissioners Monday who ad-
vised him to sell the certificates.
The sale has not yet been made
but the prospects are good for a
sale in the future. The certifi-
cates are for the years 1910 and

The first point In Judging (seed corn
It to determine its trueness to the type
or breed characteristics. There are
breeds of corn, like breeds of cattle,
which hpve peculiar colors or forms
which distinguish them; as for In-
stance, the Sliver King is a white va-
riety and the Golden Glow a yellow
variety. It is difficult to distinguish
between breeds of the same color,
but this may be learned by experience
in handling corn of different breeds.
In pure corn of any breed there are
certain marks which can be eaBlly
The ideal ear Is cylindrical, conform-
ing to the standard for the variety and i
not crooked or too tapering.
It is as difficult to find an ear of
corn perfect In shape as it is to find
cows, horses and sheep with perfect ^
forms. The shape of ears of the dif-,
ferent varieties of corn differ as
widely as the shape and form of the
different pure breeds of cattle. Each
class and variety has a characteristic i
shape peculiar to itself. For example, j
Silver King corn has an ear of me-
dium length, large in circumference,
while the Golden Glow has an ear con-
siderably shorter and finer in cob and
The most desirably shaped ear Is
cylindrical from butt to tip. Where
ears are Inclined to taper. It will be
noticed that two or four rows, as a
rule, are dropped near the middle of
the ear. In scoring corn, take Into
consideration the soil and climatic con-
ditions In which the corn Is grown.
The shape of a desirable ear for cen-
tral Illinois would differ In many re-
speats from the shape most desirable
for Wisconsin. The shorter growing
season in Wisconsin demands a shal-
lower kernel and a smaller ear to en-
able the corn to mature in a short
The color of the grain should be uni-
form and true to the color standard
for the variety, free from missing or
The color of the cob should be a
bright cherry red for yellow corn and
pure white for white corn.
The color of the corn varies with
the- breed. The Sliver King corn has
a cream color, while the Boone Coun-
ty White has a pearly white color.
Where these shades predominate they
become characteristic c' the breeds, i
Yellow breeds vary slightly in color I
from a pale yellow to a deep orange,
and can only be known by a thorough
A bright cherry red cob denotes
health and vigor In corn and a pale or
dark red cob denotes lack of constitu-
tion or vitality. The white corn cobs
should be a glistening white and ot a
dead pale color.
Some farmers prefer to grow corn of
certain colors. From tests made by
breeders of corn, and by experiment
stations, it has been found that in
general, color makes no difference so
far as feeding value is concerned, and
It Is merely a matter of choice of the
grower as to the color of corn he de-
Market condition means general ex-
cellence and the degree of ripeness or
maturity. Corn that shows a tendency
to be loose on the cob with wide
spaces between the kernels should be
scored off severely under market con-
When corn is scored from the feed-
er's standpoint It is not cut so severe-
ly as from the grower's or seedsman's
stawdpoipt. When we consider that a
bushel of corn plants about six acres
and realize the importance to be at-
tached to uniformity of stand we see
the value of considering the market
condition from the grower's standpoint
In a critical way.
Corn will gradually become accus-
tomed to its surroundings and will ad-
just Itself to varying conditions of Boll
and climate. By selecting those ears
for seed that show good market con-
dition, even if there be but a few in
the entire field, the earliness of the
corn can be Improved materially.
The kernels should extend over the
tip of the ear In regular rows, and be
uniform in size and shape. They Bhould
extend over the butt of the eafin reg-
ular rowB and be well developed and
A perfect tip has a central kernel
called th.e cap. which is completely
surrounded with uniform kernels. A
perfect tip Is rarely found, but those
which come nearest to the Ideal should
be chosen, provided It is not at the ex-
pense of other more important factors.
The tip kernels are likely to be flinty
and ot & pop corn shape, which is un-
desirable in dent corn. If bare tips
are noticeable to Quite an exteut
throughout the field, it may be due to
the fact that the silks representing
the tip kernels which were formed last
were too late to receive the pollen to
fertilize them. If ears having defec-
tive tips are used for seed, their un-
desirable characters will soon become
permanent. Open tips usually accom-
pany Bhallow and Irregular kernels on
the ear which makes the kernels on
that part of the ear undesirable foi
planting, on account of lack of uni
In judging the character of the butt
of an ear of corn, the way in which
the rows come over towards the shank
, is important. If the corn comes In
too close, the ears may drop off the
stalk during the ripening and not ful
' ly mature. All ears which have butts
j improperly filled should be rejected
j Corn breeders to desiring to get a
large proportion of corn to the cob,
i often choose ears with too small an at
j tachment for the shank. The butt and

! ing, because they are more likely to

parts of the ear.
Kernels should be of perfect wedge
Bhape, narrower or wider at the point,
according to the variety characteris-
They should be uniform in shape,
size and color and true to the type or
variety. The crown or big end of the
kernel should bo such that the edges
of the kernels slope from tip to crown.
The tip of the kernel, which is the
part attached to the cob and contains
the germ Is rich In protein and oil
and of the highest feeding value. For
this reason a plump tip usually indi-
The kernels on the cob may be ir-
regular, being deeper at the butt than
at the tip. This makes the kernels
non-uniform in size and renders the
corn almost wholly unfit for seed. No
machine will plant kernels of this type
*o as to get a uniform stand.
Kernels with weak or 3hriveled tips
should be discarded, no matter how
well the outside of the ear may look.
At least 85 per cent, of the oil In the
kernel Is in the germ, hence corn
with -well formed germs is desirable.
Tests by the Illinois experiment sta-
tion show that the oil In corn may
vary from 2 W to 7% per cent, and
protein from 6% to 16 per cent. If
seed corn contains a large amount of
protein and oil the crop grown from
thiB seed will be high In these desir-
Standard measurements for corn
produced in northern, middle and
southern Wisconsin, are as follows:
Length, northern section 8 to 9 inches,
central, 8V4 to 9V4 Inches, southern 8',4
to 9^4 Inches. Long ears are objection-
able because they usually have poor
butts and tips, shallow kernelB and
htnee a low per cent, of grain to the
ear. In general the circumference
should be three-fourths the length.
The standards for various sections In
Wisconsin are: Northern 6 to 614
inches, central 6V& to 7 inches, south-
ern 7 to 7% inches.
