I. Anderson, chairman of the county ASC committee. He said that cost-sharing practices were established in 1959 on 120 farms, or 3.4 percent of all farms in the s county. A total of 205 farmers of the county have already filed applications to participate in the program this year, Anderson stated.. Pointing out that more applications can be handled, the chairman emphasized that all farmers are eligible to apply and urged any who have conservation problems to obtain.complete information at the county ASC office in Algona. . "Unfavorable weather • condi- ;ions have slowed up- some of .he , farm . conservation work planned for this spring," Apder- son said, "but there is plenty of-time to carry out many needed practices before the end of ;he year. We hope that farmers will check up on their :ion problems and file application? for needed practices at the earliest possible time so that they will be ready to start work as soon as weather conditions are favorable." Under the ASC plan, the government pays about 50 percent of the cost of establishing most practices. A higher percentage is paid for certain practices which have a comparatively high initial cost or provide benefits which are spread over, a .period of years, One requirement to qualify for cost-sharing is that an application must be filed at the county ASC off ice' before work on the needed practice is started. .: 'Following*; is a' list of farm conservation practices M carried out iri Kossuth Cbujnity,.:ln,, 1959 ^^^^^iT.ffK^^le?;^^f^. manure, • construction of bpe'h ditch and. others. ; -, ., •• FAMOUS DIAMONDS OF HISTORY ^m$$?i^^ f.X'tf W' h &-itf: IrV f £ 4 r.#:*?v> 'M. The famed 'Regent? diamond, discovered in 1701 la India, has a long history. A 143 carat brilliant white stone valued at 1625,000, the Regent was stolen by an Indian slave soon after he found it. A European sailing vessel captain murdered the slave to get the stone* and sold k to A grandfather of William Pitt. It was in the process of cutting for many years, Napoleon obtained die Regent diamond in Amsterdam and put it on his swotd.

This is just a fancy name for the confusion that goes in most houses where there are children, but with summer here, the kids home more of the time, and the windows'open to air the noise to the neighbors, the problem becomes acute. * * * ACCORDING TO THE DICTIONARY, a sibling is something you • call a brother or sister. At our house, we have a brother and two sisters Although they call each other many things, ranging froom stupid" to names not printable in a family newspaper, never once have they'called each other "sibling". But this must be only because they •• haven't thought of it. NOW. I AM A PEACEABLE SOUL AND I don't like sibling trouble. In fact, I don' quarreling, arguing and fighting of any kind. It bothers me when people argue politics with any degree of heat; I squirm when there are disagreements over methods of work; it makes me uneasy to see fighting on television and the things I put up to avoid a fight with my husband are practically phenomenal. I like to have'everybody get along well together. What I am doing as the mother of a brood of youngsters who dash and peck at each other like a flock of banty roosters, I don't know ! * * * . THERE SEEMS TO BE A STANDING RULE among the kids at ur house to never discuss anything in a nice reasonable tone when t can just as well be shouted and screamed. Monday evening I was arke'd in a chair with a good book, trying to be oblivious of the ounds of strife in our living room. Patterson had knocked out Johansen in the fifth round before I realized that the fight was coming rom the radio, and not from our three little darlings assembled a- ound it! And tonight, I'm having a dreadful time writing this column bout kids fighting because our kids are fighting so loud I can barely ear myself think. THE FIRST CASE OF SIBLING trouble that I kno wabout is re- orded in Genesis when the brothers, Cain and Abel.couldn't get a- one. The world's first murder that resulted is a most extreme exam- ale, but it makes me realize that all this fightirfg is not a recent de- /elopment. We have hot yet had a case of mayhem at our house, ^hysical damage has so far been limited to some quick smacks, a ouple of gouges and a minor dig or two, But the'threats would make our hair stand ,on end! * ' * * SLIGHTLY LATER THAN THE CAIN and Abel era, but still n the dark ages, I was livinfe in close proximity to several siblings myself. We got along .just like birdies in the nest — always trying ,o peck each others eyes out. I SUPPOSE WE ; WERE a normal family — at least'people, accused us of it once in a while. The fights we got into were.lurid and practically constant. According to accusations, the big kidsf were too bossy to .the little kid^j^gdihe J^e^kicls Jollo^ed the big kids a-,, I used to wonder why Mamma got so nervous when we were'fighting- We usually managed to get the arguments settled all by^ourselves, so there-was no earthly reason for her to .get all hot and bothered over them. ' • - • ' ' MY SISTER AND I SHARED a bedroom,, a dresser and a closet for years, at'ipractically nq time peaceably. We had an imaginary line •unning down the middle,of,the double bed and it was,at the risk of life that either of us placed a foot over it. However, as soon as we grew up and went our separate ways, we became the best of friend? and we haven't had a fight since, f.take great comfort an this fact these days when I look at my own battling daughters. * * * ." ONE OF THE ODDEST PARTS about battling siblings, is that despite outward appearances, down deep (way down deep) they really love each other! I swear that this is true because I have actur ally seen our youngsters stand up for each other against outside criticism. And I've known them to be ,very happy when something good happened to their brother or sisters. Sometimes they even stand up for each other against us, their parents! , * * * RECENTLY JEANIE CAME TO us with a complaint about Mary Ann's behavior. We decided that Mary Ann had indeed been m the wrong and she was getting a severe lecture from her Dad. Suddenly, Jean burst into tears and ran from the room. "For goodness sakes^ she sobbed, "I can't see why you have to be so mean to May Ann . This, after Jean complained in the first place! * * *• WHAT DO KIDS FIND TO fight about? If you don't know, you are either not married, have an only child, have a poor memory or have attained an enviable status as peacemaker. They can fight over practically anything. It can be over whose turn it is to wash the dishes or whose turn it is to dry them. Over who left what m the living room and over who is going to pick it up. Over who is going to be the next in the bathtub, and over who forgot to take a bath, About who stole whose blouse to pay whom for swiping whose neck- luce, and who did unto whom first. They can even wake up in the middle of the night to fight over which one woke up first yesterday morning! ^ t THEY CAN FIGHT OVER GAMES. Two or three handed games have too many fight possibilities, and I was elated when our k,d3 got interested in solitaire. But they even tight over that. With a one. person game they fight over who is going to use our one deck of cards and they check on each other to see if they can fight because somebody cheats to win a game! NATIONS OF THE WORLD HAVE a terrible time getting along with each other. The peace of the world, and humanity's very exis- tance is threatened by this fact, but is it any wonder that this is true when so many of us have a bad time keeping peace within our own families? Summit conferences, peace pacts, and disarmament a e problems I can't do anything about excepting to pray but I can 1 y to keep the din of disagreement in my own household down to a loud shout. And if I and a billion or so other people can accomplish this, maybe we can scrap the hydrogen^ bomb.^after all. I VERY MUCH ENJOYED going to Corwith recently and meeting some of my readers at the lowana club. The ladies are about evenly divided between town and country women and I had a fine time. I especially enjoyed hearing some of the young daughters of the members play piano selections.
