(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug: 37. (Special. )-Seed
corn needs of Nebraska farmers are set
forth In a proclamation signed by Gov
ernor Aldrlch today.
The executive rails upon farmers to
select seed corn early and urges them
to set apart the week beginning Sep
tember 80 . for this purpose. The proc
The experience of successful fanners
throughout the corn belt and the results
of tests made by the various experiment
stations show conclusively that the early
selection and proper care of seed corn
always results in seed strong germl
.nating power. This is true for the fol
First Early selection secures eprly
maturing ears, thus essening danger
Second Corn selected :n the field can
be taken from stalks which have the
, power of producing good ears of corn
! Under normal or even under adverse con
ditions, thus increasing the chances of
securing high yielding ears.
I Third Seed corn properly cured will
'not be Injured by freezing.
There was a seed corn shortage last
year due to the hard freeze before the
corn had dried out. As a result all avail
able seed in the state was used for the
1912 crop. We have no surplus seed on
hand. Reports from all sections of tlw
state show that the crop this year is
from one to three weeks later than nor
mal. If we should have an early freoie
we would have a seed corn famine next
year. This would mean that much of our
seed corn for tiie 1913 crop would be se
cured from other states.
A test made at the Nebraska experi
ment station for three years shows that
seed fom other states have averaged
6.2 bushels less per acre than native
j grown seed. With these facts In mind
i I urge the early selection of seed corn
and designate the week beginning Sep
tember Si), M2, as "Seed Corn Week."
Its general observance will Insure a suf
ficient amount of native grown seed for
our 1913 crop.

The Hinge Door is the greatest improvement that has been made since the invention of the Silo. The continuous
hinge door makes a perfect ladder. The doors are always in place. It is the easiest Silo to open. Doors simply swing
inward where they are out of the way. See cut.
A Silo Door, to be secure, should
weigh from 30 to 50 pounds. How
would you like to lift this with one
hand on a blustery winter morning,
while hanging to a "so-called ladder"
about 20 to 40 feet above the ground.
"Vyith our hinged door, all you do
is raise the lever, push back the door
and you are at your silage!
No Freezing of Silage in Winter.
Careless farm hands can't take doors
out. No one can possibly be too lazy
to close them. They're so simple to

OUR ANCHORING SYSTEM
Our Anchoring System makes your
Silo firm as a rock. All Silos have
four anchors with inside hoops at top,
and foundation anchors. The large
Silos have in addition, an inside hoop
and four anchors at the middle.
The "door-ladder" is perfect, both
in construction and in practicability.
It's not' a makeshift. Each door is
equipped with eleven malleable iron
castings. The 'two hinges form the
rung of the ladder, strong enough to
hold a ton! And this step is provided
every 15 inches.
Felt gaskets that make our silo door
absolutely air-tight are placed not on
the frame but on the door itself! Con
sequently they cannot be torn off by
pitchforks or other tools when han
dling the silage.
