them into their mouths and

call this dipping.
The cultivation of this plant
became a mighty business in the
earth, and its leaves were also
wrought into rolls called cigars

to one end thereof and did put
the other end thereof into their
mouth, and suck even as calves

it came to pass that many of the
so called Saints of the Lord, did
spend money for this filthy plant

was greatly displeased and said:
'Wherefore do you spend money
for that which satisfieth not?"

Bo far as the variety of broomcorn
from the manufacturers stand point
there Is not much preference, as the
manufacturers, as a rule, are seeking
medium length brush of good color.
To those who contemplate planting
broomcorn this year, would advlte
that they secure the beat seed obtain-
able, buying It from some reliable
seed grower or handler of scod, for
In this way seed can be secured that

one of the most objectionable featurea
to be found in broomcorn. It makes
the brooomcorn very dusfy and uneit-
is factory to handle, and reducos the
weight of the fibre.
Seeding should be done the same
day the corn Is pulled, and cured in
the shed, and If brush is taken care

and as a result better prices will be
aecured. Some growers claim that
those who handle their broomcorn

who take more care, but such la not

In five or six that the one who la care*
