from time of planting. Yields two to three ears to the stalk. Furnishes Fodder in the hot, dry summer months. Planted at the same time as other Corn, Curries Earliest of All will be readyfor use in July, coming in at a time when fodder is generally short, and filling in agap until the main crop of corn can be used. The stalks grow about 6 feet in height,well clothed with leaves with rich feeding qualities. We do not advise growing thisCorn for main crop in this section. It will not take the place of King of the Earliesfor that purpose, the yield of Corn being muchless, but where extreme earliness is desired thereis no other variety equal to it.

EARLIEST OP ALL CORN. Brazilian Flour Corn—In this section grown mainly for fodder. It is a wonderfulproducer, stalks growing about 8 feet in height, stooling out so much that one kernelfrequently produces as many as eight stalks, each stalk yielding two to three earsof beautiful white Corn. The Corn contains a greater percentage of starch than anyother, and if ground and bolted the same as wheat, makes a fine flour, much esteemedby many for making bread and pastry. It is a splendid variety for ensilage, producing about four times as much fodderas the ordinary Corn. Plant two kernels in each hill, and cultivate the same as anyother corn. Quart 20c (by mail 35c per quart); peck 85c; bushel $3.00. Pd Purchasers of one bushel Corn or more will add 20c extra for each bag: required.
