16 MASTER FARMER HAS MODEL HERD NEAR M'GREGOR Kinsley Operates Farm on Stock Share Basis With 2 Tenants. 1 MCGREGOR, Feu. 9. G. Kinsley, a businessman, turned farmer, has made of the "Switzerland of Iowa" perhaps the finest dairying sectio'n in ithe state. ' Long before he sold out the hardware and · implement business he started in Monona In 1894,- Kinsley developed the purebred Jersey cattle herd from which has come the breeding stock for most of the Jersey cattle in northeast Iowa. His herd has.been the model after which his neighbors have patterned. In 1918, they joined with him to organize the McGregor Cow Test association before any of the other four most northeasterly counties Jjas started such a body. Aided Creamery Organization. Largely thru Kinsley's work, his neighbors say, the association now has eight sister organizations In Clayton county. In addition, Kinsley has been president of the McGregor Farmers Co-operative creamery association since he helped organize it eight years ago. It was back in 1901 that -Kinsley and his brother purchased the old · home place. 'They operated it with hired help as Kinsley devoted Ma major attention to his Monona store and his brother. traveled as a salesman. It was on that farm, however, that Kinsley sponsored the purebred Jersey herd as the basis of his future farm operations. The herd went along when the home place was traded for the present 360 acre farm known as "Mid Oaks," in 1907. The hired help was retained until 1913 when Kinsley sold his business and moved on to the farm four miles southwest of here.

"Good gracious, no!" exclaimed Lord Hardway. "He was a thoro- bred. cockney, if I ever saw one. Why?" "It struck me as curious that his brother should have a shop in Wigan," replied Brooks. "Well, my lord, I think that is all I need trouble you with at present. Perhaps you would permit me to examine the safe and the outside of the house?" The Inspector spent the rest of the morning examining the house and questioning the servants. It was not until the afternoon that he returned to Scotland Yard to make his report to the Assistant Commissioner. · "Well, Brooks, what do you make of it?" asked that official cheerfully. "It's perfectly plain up to a point, sir," replied Brooks. "I'd like to ask you a question, before I tell you what I have done, if you won't think me impertinent, sir."

Since then he has operated on a stock-share basis with two tenants but he has been largely responsible for building up the Jersey herd. The caliber of his cows, 40 of which are milked daily, is shown by the 814 pounds of butterfat produced by his hig-h producer In 1929. In addition to the milking cows, Kinsley's herd includes around GO other .Jersey'cattle. He raises the young and sells the bulls as breeding stock. The fact that most of his milking cows are animals with their first or second calf has f prevented him from ranking among the leaders in his cow test association insofar as the high-producing herd is concerned.

That leadership won his election as · 1930 Master Fanner. He was the first to raise alfalfa, developing a crop when farmers generally regarded it as unsuitable for this rough and hilly country. Since 1906, the Kinsley farm has not been without a crop of alfalfa ex- e«pt two seasons when the stand Was winterkilled. Kinsley also has been a sponsor of liming. Altho his land is not decidedly acid, he is covering all that Tinder cultivation at the rate of about 25 acres a year. The Bilo he erected in 1909 was the first in the neighborhood. His cattle were ac- DK. STELLA MASON SPEAKS AT MEETING At the meeting of the Woman's Missionary society of the Church of Christ at the Y. M. C. A. at luncheon Dr. Stella Mason spoke on India.

HOG SHIPMENTS ARE CURTAILED Cut in Bovine Marketings Meets With Little' Response. CHICAGO, Feb. 9. OP)--Shrinkage of current hog receipts was controlled to so fine a point that the market virtually struck a balance. Fresh offerings of 70,000 here included 31,000 billed straight to packers and were 4,400 less than arrived a weel: ago. Outside markets had 89,000, against 100,000 the previous Monday. Holders were insistent on a 'steady price schedule, but initial bids were weak to lOc lower than Friday's average. Trad- Ing got under way slowly, with 160 to 190 Ib. hogs at $7.8o@7.90 show ing little change. Strictly choic lights were held at $8 and above. A further cut in bovine market ings did 'not meet with prompt re spohse · from local buyers. Eastern operators were in search of a limit ed number of good to choice heav steers and local buyers showed /· distinct preference for tne bettc j grades of all weights. However, th 1 "bulk of the run consisted of jus plain to good steers and a poorl proportioned supply o f , she stock Barely steady prices were obtain able for the more desirable steers Calf receipts of 2,000 were suffi cient to supply the existing demand Holders of fat lambs of good t choice quality were imbued wit] decidedly bullish ideas as to price Only 15,000 live muttons were esti mated to arrive and some came in late. Cars reported in the forenooa carried no directs to packers: Hogs closed steady to lOc lower. Caul S25.50, mostly 50c down, and sheep 25 or more higher. credited long before 1922. Has Business Instinct. The businessman's instinct still guides Kinsley's activities. He keeps close records of income and expenses.-Further, he raises from 60 to 90 purebred Hampshire hogs each year primarily as a means for marketing his skim milk. Purebred .alao are his Percheron horses from which he raises annually three to five colts. Of poultry he has none but both tenants raise chickens and one also has a flock p( turkeys. · His annual production of 50 acres of corn has · averaged about 60 bushels to the acre for five years. His 40 acres of oats in 1930 yielded 70 bushels an acre while one 12 acre field netted 91 bushels. Mid Oaks also has 50 acres of permanent pastureland and two excellent orchards, carefully attended.

(]P)-- Helped by stock market buoyancy, grains rose fast today, with wheat' ana oats attaining the highest prices reached since JanI 15. Sub-zero temperatures in the northwest caused apprehension that a cold wave would · work down into winter wheat territory, and bring about crop damage. A decrease of the corn visible supply attracted attention also, aa the total is now 16723,000 bushels, compared with 17*174,000 a year ago. Illinois points reported corn ottered very sparingly, as feeders continued to pay above the market and truck the corn away Increased movement of wheat from ruial sources was regarded as showing that pro. flucers had decided to clean up wheat while government sponsored agencies would take receipts at the May basis, and that wheat as feed would be replaced by other grains.

Market Notes BY TICKER TAPE "The continued dellatlon of commodity prices evident In the various composite Indexes, and particularly ID metals, Is the chief point ot Interest In tne business situation of the week," aays tne Business Week. "While steel, pig-Iron and car loadings snow a slow upward trend, the uncertainly which the lack oC price stability presents Is likely to check even the present meager volume of orders.

The decline in consumption In industrial regions appears sharpest in the central states. The report for December, 1930. just released by the U. E. Geological Survey, shows a 5 per cent shrinkage In electric power generated compared with December, 1029. tho this shows some Improvement when contrasted with the two preceding months which fell from 6 per cent to 7 per cent behind the corresponding months of 1929. Production for the year, however, was 1.8 per cent under 1929, hut omitting this exceptionally active year, 1930 compares favorably with every year since IBIS, being 0 per cent greater than 1928 and over twice as creat an the post-war boom year of 1920. Thee slight decline in commodity car loadings was due principally to curtailed coal shipments paralleling the decreased production of this Item. Grain and livestock for MM ^ all other groups showed increases. The two group indicative ot general trade--miscellaneous and merchandise . less-tnan-cartot--showed almost the normal seasonal Increase. Our adjusted Index baaed on the two latter groups declined but fractionally, standing at 74 per cent of normal compared with 75 per cent the preceding week.

The greatest declines occurred In the smaller communities outside of financial centers, where a 13 per cent drop is reported for the week of Jan. 28. compared with less than 9 per cent In the HO cities exclusive of New York city. This city, In fact, showed a slight increase. Our adjusted Index based on the 140 centers and averaged -with .the preceding week declined from 84 pqr cent oc normal to 81 per cent.

GRAIN MARKET LETTER WHEAT--while a great deal of the cuy- Ing public today In wheat was attributed to short covering the weather was believed to have bee'n the major Influence In our market. There was' a better tone to all markets, the action of stocks especially giving buyers, ot commodities more confidence. A decided drop In temperatures In Canada and American northwest and the forecast for a cold wave In Iowa, and colder weather In most sections of the belt focused attention on the winter wheat crop with Its lack of covering. Moisture over the week-end was confined mostly to the southern end of the soft winter wheat stales east of the Mississippi, hut the precipitation was only moderate. The reports of rain had but little effect. Sentiment was less bearish. Foreign markets were higher and export business was placed at about a half million. It Is still a weather market but .ye would be inclined to take some profits tomorrow should the opening be higher. CORN--Short covering, the strength In wheat and prospects of increased farm feeding offset news of a bearish nature today and prices had a sharp advance. Receipts over tha week-end-were large, bookings to arrive were 77,000, of which 40,000 came from other terminals. The decrease of 34.QOC bushels In the visible supply attracted some attention, an the total now Is about a million less than last year. This contimiLXl ile- mand by industries seems to be disposing ot arrivals here In a satisfactory manner, but It Is not permitting the building up ot any stocks. The price of com In relation to wheat appears to favor the increased feeding of uie former. We think corn Is a purchase on any good break. Liverpool due I H c higher. nent issues such as U. S. Steel, American Can, Bethlehem Steel, American Telephone, Sears Roe buck, Johns Mansville, Atchison an Union Pacific recorded advances o similar extent. Issues up 3 to 5 in eluded Westinghouse Electric, Du pont, Republic Steel- Preferred Worthington, American Tobacco Eastman, Allied Chemical, an Case. Volatile issues such as Indus trial Rayon and Auburn shot up more than 10 points. Issues up point or so embraced a wide assort ment of utilities, industrials an merchandising shares. In the main rails and coppers were inclined t lag. The oils broke out of their pro tracted sluggishness with gains of point or so in standards of New York, New Jersey and California reflecting favorable decision in th Socony-Vacuum merger case. The bear faction had found It- position none too comfortable dur irig most of lost week, but the dis quieting character of the new from Washington for a time, to gether with a slackening of the re covery in business, had encouraged shorts to hang on, despite the sold out condition of the market. Re ports of the past few days indicat Jng a more conciliatory attitude among factions in Washington to gether with indications that invest ors are taking a calm and patient attttude toward the vicissitudes of business recovery, finally dislodged the bear forces.
