M. The annual meeting of the Indiana state teachers association begins in Indianapolis today. Or.

He believes there is an unused wealth of Talent in the state that May be obtained for improving especially the township Institute. The state depart Mot has sent invitations to Twenty prominent hoosiers to attend the conference. Stalks than others also the position of the ear on the stalk was different iii some of the rows. All of these differences showed c Tara eristic3 that were produced by the different seed ears. And when the different rows were husked separately and the Corn from each Row weighed by itself it was also found that there was a Large difference in the number of pounds of Corn that ech Row contained or that each ear of seed had produced on the same number of Hills. Row number 23 which was produced from ear number 23 yielded at the rate of 71 and one third bushels per acre and was the highest yielding ear in the lot. Ear number 43 which was the lowest yielding ear in the lot produced at the rate of 32 bushels per acre making a difference of nearly 40 bushels of Corn per acre Between the production of these two ears planted in the same Field and Only 20 rows apart. Or. Britus is planning to use the remnants of the Parent ears that produced the highest yields and Plant them in a place by themselves next year for a seed Patch and by this Means will produce a Strain of in that will have a very High yielding Power. This work is called quot ear Torow quot work in Corn Breeding and is a sure and easy Way of increasing the yielding labelled during the Early Spring Days when other work is put Rushing and Only a Little extra time is required at planting time for planting the Corn from different ears in separate rows. The advantage of having a High yield Strain of seed Corn makes this work very profitable. It is recommended to every Farmer who is growing Corn extensively and is producing his Awn seed Corn to test out his Best ears and grow Corn from the highest yielding ears.

When an hour or so had been spent in chatting jokes and reminiscences the women produced a lunch that had been brought in baskets and buckets and big paper boxes. Sandwiches pie and Coffee were served. The sandwiches were not Only there in Quantity but in Quality and variety until you Felt like a bashful Lover with two girls on the string did t know which one to take. And pie Williamsport wins in tournament sunday our respective Mouths begin to quot water even now when we thin of the pie we ate that night. Nor can we Ever understand How such a i Vinly constructed piece of pastry that fairly melted in our Mounth and whose sweetness and flavor were so delicately blended could make one have such a headache in the morning and wonder where he had been the night before. Coffee was the Only drink As far As we could see and or. Mccloud being a dry did t furnish that. Quot a most enjoyable time was quot had to How staid and hackneyed these words sound. How can they really Tell the delightful chummy Ness and sociability of the evening or bespeak the Friendship and admiration we All feel for the my Clouds. The Best wishes of the entire club go with the Mcclouds to their new Home at Kentland. In concert it Vork in new Yorr City for a period of years. His experience As a Singer has been very extensive. Or. White has sufficient volume his enunciation is distinct and his tones Clear and resonant. Besides possessing these essentials of a Good Singer or. White reveals another accomplishment. It is his ability to interpret the spirit of the song according to the intention of the composer and to Render the song with adequate feeling. The majesty of handle s and quot Largo quot the tenderness of quot Mother o mine quot and the reverence of quot open the Gates of the Temple quot Are examples of How Well could differentiate these moods. It is indeed a treat to hear a Singer like or. White. It does not happen often enough in Williamsport. Local Talent assisted in the program. Miss Mabel Phillips formerly of Williamsport furnished a Soprano Solo miss Clara Louisa Haun played a piano Solo Misa Gem Schoonover and miss Ruby Opal Hilyer contributed readings and the High school glee club under the direction of miss nay Sang three numbers. The concert was Arrau Rcd under the direction of Crawfordsville presbytery to provide funds with which to defray the expenses for special music at the evangelistic meetings. This is equivalent to or White raising his own salary. It seems unfair to or. White and the fact that he a willing to do thia ought not to b acce Jed without proper appreciation and Praise.
