Two Things a Com
' Crib Must, Do
The first thing that a corn
crib should afford is thorough
ventilation to the stored grain.
To secure this, leave the sides
as open as po-siMe, and divide
the crib into small Dins.
The second thin? that a corn
crib should atYord is protection
from driving rains and snows.
This can be easily done by ex
tending the caves well down
over the sides.
Corn is one of our leading
crops. So there is no more im

than the corn crib. We can
