N. Y. 8 West 4th Street, October 16, 1936. Mr. L. A. Lee, Publisher, Cherokee Scout, Murphy. North Carolina. Dear Sir: As a former resident of Georgia, and a collector for many years of books relating to the State and Colony of Georgia, I have been attempting to lo\ate, wherever possible, books, pamphlets and newspapers printed by Cherokee Indians at New Echota, between 1828 and 1834, when that settlement was the capital of the Cherokee Indian Nation, and before the removal westward of the Indians. In the assurance that the Cherokee Scout circulates both within and x; " ' need advice. "Corn yields can be increased v, surely e nd more cheaply by he use of be?i? r seed than in ny )ther v.ay". Woo. en said. 4iScd corn should be selected in lie field from -talks which yield best n equal competition with other . It hoold be of a variety wh'ch suc eeds well and matures under local onditions. Ears should be saved ?nly from stalks free from disease. >roopirg ear . which shed rain ready should be selected, and these Would be borne on the stalk- at a convenient height for husking. In tie. uih. ears which are well protected from insects by long, tight shuck covring should be chosen. "The same day the seed is gath i\ it should he hung in a dry, airy dace. One of the best ways to cure eed corn i.? to hang it from the afters of a barn or open shed. It hould not be allowed to freeze beore it thoroughly dry. After it is veil cured it should be stored in a try place where it will remain seure from mice, rats, birds and inects. Well-cured seed corn will yield much better crop han seed origilally as good but ijured through ack of care. "Generally speaking, the seed orn that produces the best crop is i he cheapest. Farmers are justified in levoting considerable time to selecttig and caring for it or in paying | ;ood prices if better seed corn is turchased."
