Heck and planted by him at Meloland. Mr. Beck sowed some jib advised by the Washington ex perts and it made rank growth of stalk and no grain. He used his own Judgment In planting the rest,, treat ing It as Egyptian corn usually is treated by farmers, and obtained ex cellent results. From an acre and a half he obtained three tons of grain. Instead of sowing ten pounds to the acre as advised, Mr. Beck found that a pound to the acre was enough, or two pounds at the most. The dwarf maize makes an even growth about four feet In height and may be harvested readily witrf a header. It is more easily gathered by hand than are the taller corns. The Joints are very short and there fore there ' is more fodder in them than in j other varieties. Mr. Beck has saved the cr...
