What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

This result has followed from the unusually low temperatures that have prevailed during nearly all the growing season. The weather hiss been abnormal, and unusually an. Notwithstanding, for two uses corn has been grown successfully in all or nearly all parts of the Northwest. One of the uses referred to relates to squaw corn. It is grown not for the fodder so much as for the grain. It will ripen in leas than 90 days in any season if it planted sufficiently early,' The present season it is ma- turing, where it has bevel given a fair chance. But the kind referred to, it should be borne in mind, is the white flint squaw corn. It may usu- ally be relied on to produce not less than 25 bushels per acre. In some in- stances when well cared for it will pro- duce much more. But at 25 bushels per acre, if hogged off, it should give a return of not less than $15.00 per acre at 8 cents a pound for pork. The stalks rues. be left to hold the BROW. In areas where winter veheat is grown, it may be drilled in between the core rows at the proper season, notsvithstand ing the hogging off process. The 1111 eaten stalks will aid greatly in held ing the winter's snow, thus protect in the wheat.

The beat corn silage, of course, is pro- duced where the corn can be put into the silo after it has reached the glazed stage. In an emergeney, however, where the corn Itaa tint reached the glazed stage before fruit, it is better to give it all the growing time pomade, evrn if it has to be put into the silo hume diately after the first frost. Every extra growing day after the corn has reached the milk stage adds very much to the solid constituents of the silage, as in these laet few days there is a very important transfer of material from the roots into the stalk and ear of the plant. In fact, the corn plant when it reaches the milk stage contains only about 65 per cent of the dry matter that it con- tains two weeks later. Aside from the increased feeding val- ue, the corn when it has reached the I/buffet stage containe a much larger percentage of starch and a smaller per' eentage of sugar. The high proportion of Huger in immature corn is one of the main reasons for the high acidity in the silage made from it. The amount of acid in the silage ism found to be very neacly in proportion to the sugar pres- ent in the corn. Where it has been necessary to delay , love antl made-up beds.
