The . were y was who left " Snell- corps. B. M. ••Burlingame, northwest of Lone Rock, said on a recent Wednesday- that he was ready to go baling straw with Ralph Hurlburt. Ralph had not yet come for him, however, and B. M. guessed that maybe Ralph thought the weather too windy for baling operations. Mr. Burlingame's son-in-law, Wayne Wickwire, who farmed there last year, has moved to the Ted Trun- nelle farm northwest of Wesley. * * * * We were briefly at Peter Rol| ling's, northwest of Bancroft, '.dead,' recently, and found Mr. Rolling V and feeding his feeder cattle. He had 20 head in a feed lot. Peter raises most of his feeders. He said' the children were just getting over the measles, which had made them miss school ten days. He and Mrs. Rolling were kept busy caring for them, for there are six boys and five girls in the family, and all had the measles at the same time. * * * * Robert Rpckwood, who had lived at Corwith during the last year, lately called at the Advance office. He used to farm northwest of Corwith, and now he is returning to the game, having rented the place where the Lloyd Neswolds had been living, owned by Philip Walker, of Schaller. The Neswolds are mov- Robert and his,wife have a new son, now 19 mos. old. A brother of Robert farms in the Corwith neighborhood. * * * * Oscar Nelson, northwest of Alfred Zielske sale when we stopped at his place Friday. We noticed a fine drove of hogs in l^optimies iiid-i is in necht and hostesses Missionary cht home Sen attend- 'litrop had »nd Mrs. mission pup smg- result- fgecretary- Tilliams. last year. But as far as we can see, it's all Alphonse's own fault that he has to do his own housework. * * * * George Schueler, northwest of Bancroft, was doing his chores when we saw him the other day. The Schuelers live in a little house, and they are as comfortable "as bugs in a rug." Sometimes we wonder whether most [ people could not get along just as well in such homes as in big houses which take a lot of work to keep up. * * * * Roy . H. Jensen, northwest of Lone" Rock, was hauling straw' . last week Tuesday and putting it into the barn for bedding. He showed us four whiteface steers he is feeding, and two of them belong to a son. These 4-H cattle are real dandies. Mr. Jensen likes to hunt and fish, and he has a fine hunting dog which is good at retrieving. The dog is trained to bring Mr. Jensen's overshoes to him. » * * * We had "aats" one day last week at the "Hi-Way . Cafe," Swea City, a popular place with a large patronage. The cook, is a Mrs. Wegener, and she is a good one. Mary Schroeder is the pleasant waitress. They said business was good. Mr. Wegener, who does carpenter work, is kept busy most of the time. * * * * We had a visit Friday with W. H. Payne, northwest of Ledyard. he ( . did last fall and was all ready for spring work. * * * * We called recently on Peter Reiter, who formerly farmed south of Bancroft, with his father, Jos. Reiter. Peter moved to a place south of Lakota where William Janyrin used to live, but we found him at his brother-in- law Albert Johnson's, east of Bancroft, where he was helping to get a fanning t mill ready to clean seed oats. ' The men had ~presi- mounted a new electric motor on i»an; vice the mill, and'the results were ' highly satisfactory, * * * * John C. Menke, who lives \*k. miles north of Bancroft on No. 169, was at the house when we stopped there a few days ago, though as a rule we find him in the barnyard feeding cattle, and he has a fine-looking herd in the feedlot now. We noticed a dandy blue roan team hitched to a'wagon. The Menkes all drive good horses. * * * * We were at Alphpnse Elsbecker's, southeast of Bancroft, briefly ten days ago, and found Alphonse washing his breakfast dishes. We don't often report farmers at such jobs, but Al- Bhonse happens to be a bacfie^ lor. He must be a good cook, for he is looking healthy, and he had gained about 20 pounds in, the teaching in the local schools as part of her college course. Stevens Teacher Resigns—* Mrs. Charles Peterson, who had been teaching a rural school near Stevens, resigned, and Mrs. Larry Stafford has been hired to finish the year. Other Lakota . Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Wofley, of Mason City, were casing on friends here one day last weels. Mr. Worley is a former cag^% of one of the banks here, and he alsq pperated a, real «SjJ»te ajj^ insurance office here, Mr, jw& Mrs, J. B, JTfJLcajinp, jsd word I'P* C. F.

He has a young couple with one child who came from Missouri and will help him this year. * • * * ' We called recently on Gilbert E. Cordes, south of Swea City. The Cordes family is a new one there, having come from near Pocahontas. They bought this farm, which is where John Carlson lived 27 years as tenant. Mr. and Mrs, 'Cordes have two small children, a girl and a boy. Mr. Cordes was putting up a double garage, using the wreckage of a building he had used for shelled corn where he formerly lived. * * •* * ' We called a week or so ago" at Jens Simonsen's, north of Swea City, and had a short visit with the folks there. They spoke of the South, for they - once lived near the Gulf of Mexico in southern Louisiana. They remarked, that they guessed they had lived in the North too,long, and so did not know how to make a living in the South. The family lived near Estherville ten years. They don't seem to have lost any assets in their southern venture, for they own the 200-acre farm where they now live. ' »»'*»' Nine days ago we stopped to see the William Speichers, north 'of Swea City, and found them . packing, for they were moving I to a farm southwest of Elmore— to what is called the Fred Button place. |flr, .Speicher remarked that there were many families in north of Swea City neighborhood who were moving out of Grant township. Some time ago we were briefly at N- M. Godfredson's, near Swea City., and had a visit with Mrs. Godfredson. ; N. M. is always busy, for he- is foreman of the Gep. W. Patterson "ranch," formerly known as the Chubb section. Mr. Godfredsen has worked for Mr. Patterson eight years now, and he has been at the present place five years. * * * * Jos. Ford,', east of Bancroft on i the Mre. Alfred Nelson farm, 1 had |ust finished dinner when we j arrive^ last week Monday. H^ said. h,e wag hauling alfalfa hay from his father John Ford's. JotyJ has a fine lot. The Ford stock all show that they are well feg. ARE YOU MOVING? If you are, and if you are an Advance subscriber, clip this form and mail at once: Old Address P. O..

Mr. and Mrs. Ford have two boys and one girl, and the boys' .names are Tom and Dick respectively, while the girl's name is Jane. Joseph "remarked that the names should have been Tom, Dick, and Harriett! 1 * * » • Iver Bergum, on the W. H. Godden farm, west of Bancroft, was doing some fence repairing when we saw him one day last week. He is always busy when we call. He had lately started to build a small brooder house. His landlord is the monument m'a'n at Algona. * * * * The W. G. Moores are a new family from Armstrong, northwest of Swea City. Mr. and Mrs. Moore have one child, a little girl. They live on the Moreland farm, on- what some people call the Homesteaders farm. There is a one-story house, but no grove, though the - land is a good tract. *' * » * The Jasper Steenhards, northwest of the Grant schpolhouse, had just come home with some seedcorn when Ve stopped there last week Tuesday. Seedcorn is "a different proposition now from what it was when we were on the farm. Father would always pick it himself from his own field. Mr, and Mrs. Steenhard have a boy in the service, and he had recently been at home on furlough. . * * * .* * We spent a little time Friday at the Alfred Zielske farm sale northwest of Ledyard. There was a large crowd, and we met a lot of acquaintances. Tony Stork, east of Bancroft, was among them, also some of the Christ boys, Lakota, Henry Lappe, Milt Pringle, and Jos. Preston. Mr. and Mrs. Zielske have bought the •store at Grant Center, and they report a good business. They redecorated the place and increased the N stock. Mrs. Glenn Minp was taking care of the store while they were at the sale. j OLDWEDS SURPRISED. Lu Verne, Mar. 4 — Mr. and .Mrs. E. B.
