This was introduced a number of years ago and has steadily increased in favor since its introduction and we consider it one of the most valuable sorts ever grown for the Northern states. While there are many varieties that in good years will yield as much as Minnesota King there are very few we think that will year in and year out produce as heavy a crop as this sort. The ears are quite large cobs small kernels yellow broad long and set very closely on the cob. Postpaid lb. 30C 3 lbs. 85c.
Minnesota No. 13
This is the earliest yellow dent corn grown and is largely planted in the Northern states. There is no other yellow dent fully as early that is equally as productive. The stalks are 7 feet high are very leafy and furnish great quantities of fodder ears average 8 inches in length and have 16 to 20 rows of smooth plump rich yellow kernels. Will ripen in about 90 days and yields from 60 to 80 bushels per acre in a good season. Postpaid 1 lb. 30C 3 lbs. 85c.
Improved Pride of the North
A wonderful improvement over the old reliable standby Pride of the North. This splendid pedigreed variety is unquestionably one of the very best 90 day field corns for Northern latitudes. It will ripen in Northern localities hitherto able to grow only the flint varieties. Postpaid lb. 30C 3 lbs. 85c.
Improved Yellow Yankee
Particularly adapted to the Northern Middle States. One of the earliest and best known yellow flint varieties. The ears are well filled to the tips with good rich golden-yellow kernels.

Extra Early Improved Yellow Flint
Largest ear best yielder. Ears 10 to 15 inches long of rich yellow color. Enormously productive outyielding any field corn that we have ever grown in the far North. Matures exceedingly early from 60 to 70 days being a fair average. The kernels are large and the stalks are of good height. The ears average two to a stalk growing well up so as to readily admit being cut by the harvester. The stalks grow very tall and leafy and make superior fodder. Will surely prove of the greatest value to the farmers of the far North particularly the Dakotas Northern Minnesota Wisconsin Michigan and the Canadian Provinces. Postpaid lb. 18C lb. 35C 3 lbs. 1.00

Improved Indian Squaw Corn
Holds more records for wonderful performances under difficult conditions than any corn ever grown. It is an extremely early variety maturing in 85 days and is a more successful corn for late planting than the Mexican June corn about which so much has been written in recent years. Not only will this ripen ahead of the Mexican June but will make a good crop under adverse conditions that will choke out the latter variety. Perhaps the most wonderful quality of this corn is its power to resist drouth. The most protracted dry weather hinders its growth not at all and still it will weather a wet season equally well. In appearance this corn is one of our most handsome varieties. The kernels are of different colors red blue yellow and white giving the ears a curiously beautiful mottled appearance. The ears grow from 8 to 12 inches in length and are of symmetrical form. This variety is grown very largely everywhere for hogging down. For this purpose is is planted alone or with soy beans or rape. The corn making less shade than taller varieties allows the beans and rape to develop very well. The ears growing near the ground this corn could not be cut with the binder but the hogs will harvest it without any waste whatever. It is a well known fact that returns are equally as good where the hogs gather their feed themselves as where they are hand fed. Postpaid lb. 18C lb. 30C 3 lbs. 85c.
