No timo shouUl bc lost in ïmiking selections for seed eorn for future use. Every intelligent farmer shouM have a lixed idea of wkat lie wants in oorn, and should set about wilh a matured plan for sucb seed as will produce the dêsired results. EspectaÜly at this season should care be exevcised in this selection, f rom the f act that there will be mauy ears not. well (illed out. We would advise, lirst, the selection of the largest stalks, next, the largest ears, and, linally, thoso specimens which were best 'tilled out and most perfectly ripeaeó, Where two ears, well iilledout, are found upon a single stalk, they slumld have the preferenee in selection over the one large ear to the stalk, because two moderat e-si zeil ears wil!, as a general tliing, yield more oorn than the one large specimen ; besides, the former will be likely to mature parlier than the latter.
