t I GOOD TIMES . . Good collections are reported from all sections of the country . Wholesale merchants and jobbers say that collections are better at the present than they have been at any time iu recent years .

This has resulted in the prompt increase in trade . Indications point to an even better autumn trade than was experienced in the spring and early summer . All the manufacturers are busy , and in many instances the demand is greater than the capacity . GOOD SHOWING . The United States national debt amounted to $ 1 , 436 , 700 , 703 at the close of June . The total cash balance in the Treasury at the same time was . ? 281 , 2 S 0 , 000 .

SEED CORN SELECTION . Prof . . T . M . Westgate , Manhattan , [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 September 1899
SEED CORN SELECTION . Prof . . T . M . Westgate , Manhattan , Kas ., writes : Many farmers owning both bottom and upland corn fields make the mistake of using the same seed on both kinds of soil . Corn which is adapted to tho soil and moisture conditions of the valleys will not do so well on the upland as will some variety that hus bv several years of cultivation and selection become adapted to the conditions there . It is for the same reason that the large Colorado potatoes that have been grown for years under irrigation will do so poorly when used for seed -in Kansas without the accustomed supply of water . It is generally the case on the farm that the corn from all the fields , both upland and bottom , is cribbed together . When the time for seed selection comes the largest ears are picked out irrespective of the kind of soil that grew them . As the bottom land produces the larger ears , it is more than likely that the bulk of the seed will be from the lower and moister portions ...
