Eckhardt, 120 West Adams Street, Chicago, Ill. - &quot;Son! Do You Know That Your Seed Corn Will Grow?&quot; - Get Your Seed Corn Now - The seed corn situation is the worst in the history of the State. If wheat or oats fail, we can plant corn and grown a paying crop. When corn planting time comes you must have good seed, or fail. Hundreds of farmers have put away corn not a kernel of which will grow. Damp weather in October; immature corn; and early hard freezing has killed it.
