Did you know that 20 to 33% of all pigs die before birth? They needn't. A good sow ration that-includes "4x4" Breeder-Finisher can save them. "4x4" provides the nutrients needed by the unborn pig at every state during gestation. See me now for details. Eugene M.

It was one day when the temperature was sort of near normal and we all' got a big kick out of it, too. It was heat in a moderate degree aftd the "day was not characterized by the lousy high temperature we've suffered for a month, and short and tall, -light and heavy, folks all enjoyed it. It's a cinch'that 90 degrees is.a relative quantity or intensity too hot for comfort. And. 90 degrees react on those who are thick skinned while those who are thin skinned can take 'it with lesser suffering or worrying, so to speak. And it just seemed 'that, folks couldn't get Used to the 90 degree angle, too much of a drain of perspiration. Of course there are some gents who sort of got .used to the heat and profited by it by.-way of not taking on baths every day because ,on account of the con-' tinued wiping of' perspiration from one's skin-served as a skin cleaner angle. By -way of Continued wiping away sweat drops with a big towel'a purpose was served and that was that by applying •& towel you just also cleaned your hide every time and so no bath.. Yep. I did some ariihmaticing anent the perspiring and the sweat drops that .a gent could find on his arms. I sat quietly in a chair for half an hour right in the shining heat of the sun. And so I counted,the sweat drops that issued from my hide because of the heat. And the heat and sun brought out 16 sweat drops on one fore arm and 11 drops on the'other, 27 total. Just think of that. And then there were sweat drops aplenty -on a, gent's face, too. I should havesmeasured the drops as to the number in a cup but I got so disgusted with the heat and the sweating that arithmaticing lost - interest. But if you sweat 27 drops of sweat on .just, your two arms in a half hour ,it just seems that first thing y ouknow you'd have a half pint to your credit, so to speak. Be that as it may, the heat has been plenty tiresome, disgusting and sweaty and here's hoping we get relief plenty soon. Now if there was only some '-way to save and store the heat for 'the coming months we could take the heat over-Heated heat with more patience. • I quizzed quite a few gents as to their love or hate for the hot spell we've suffered the past month and their reactious were somewhat varied, so to speak. It was Wade Sullivan who told me Quarter Section Faim at PUBLIC AUCTION Choice quarter section farm, known as the Jack Farrell farm, will be sold at public auction on the premises, located on the blacktop at the north edge of Whittemore, on TODAY, SEPT. 9 At 2 p.m. DESCRIPTION: This is the SE14 of Sec, 6, Whittemore twp. TERMS: 20% down at time of sale, and balance March 1, 1956, at which time possession will be given. THIS IS A CHOICE FARM, WELL LOCATED, CLOSE TO TOWN, AND ADJACENT TO A GOOD, ALL- WEATHER, YEAR AROUND ROAD. John E. Farrell Estate LeRoy Farrell, Executor * • Lee Colwell, Auctioneer STRICTLY BUSINESS "He doesn't need ark assistant yet — 1 can still see his head!" that after the first ,two or three days of the* heat he became so accustomed/ to it that he didn't suffer one bit. And "Dutch" Honsbruch told me that-there was not one iota of heat suffering ori his part, in fact he could take it and remain happy. And Tim O'Brien said that heat, high or low, never gave him any trouble, in fact he loved' it compared to; the zero breezes on new year|s day. x And "Bill" Reinders told'me that'hot summer heat didn't worry him a bit because on account of if the breeze was too hot then he picked up a newspaper and fanned the heat from his visage, so to speak. And Harold Gilmore said that he had found a way to combat heat by carrying a silver dollar, which is always cool, and grabbing the dollar helped offset the heat. And Lawrence Hutzel says that heat suffering on the part of many people came through their sort of giving in to temperatures instead of fighting it. -And C. H. Ostwinkle told me that heat never bothered him -because on account of he just refused to recognize it. It was Armiri Sehult* who agreed with me that too much heat wasn't so pleasant to endure but eve,n at that neither was too much cold so he just didn't let the heat bother him. "Soup'VBriggs tells me that one way to battle heat is by 'taking deep breaths and whistling the breath out of your lungs. That way you don't gjve thought to the heat and so it is_ not so hot after all. Roy Bjustrom says that the best way to battle heat and forget that it is hot is to take on a cup of good coffee, and he's got something there. —o— Yep, it has been plenty hot the past month but now that the outside is cooling off we'll appreciate the cooler weather that much more. As' far back as I can remember I am sure that the past steady heated month has been the longest in years a'nd although we were beginning to get used to the heat we are all glad' that temperatures are -about,to become normal and easier to take, so to speak. And 1 must admit that the weatherman does pull some real lousy stunts occasionally and the past month's heat spell was sure one of 'em, so to speak. Algona Soldier To Return, U.S.A^ 1ST DIV..
