Albert Evening Tribune (Newspaper) - May 12, 1927, Albert Lea, Minnesota Thursday May 12, 1927 a one thing is sure i never try to Tell the Farmers what to do about their farms a said Tommy this morning. A i a now they know As much about farming As i do about catching Niichi and climbing Trees. I believe in every fellow sticking to his last.

Well now a number of Farmers As Well As seed men who Plant a Field without testing their seed. Have discovered that some of die nicest looking ears of seed rom Are r s. Rotten stuff. In plainer language the kernels have no More germinating Power than Over Ripe Hen fruit. To Plant Corn of this kind Means a heavy loss to the Farmer who does it. Two or three Farmers have called my attention to this. L ious matter and have asked me to impress upon the minds of the Tribune readers the great importance of testing seed Corn this year. Corn planting should Start the tenth of May. The ground is still very cold. This unusual chilliness of the soil is on account of excess Rains and Low temperatures. The cooler the soil the higher germinating Power each Kernel of Corn Mould have. Cool soil and weak ted Means the Kernel will rot by fore it can Send its shoot of life to the top of the ground for Sunshine and air.
