After the heavy rain of Aug. 13, many fields had shocked tints torn apart, and bundles were seen floating in ponds and piled a.rninst fences. The heavy yield of eood quality straw is being baled or put under cover on many farms to be used for rouehage and bedding next winter.

From present prospects a good bean crop is anticipated. , Oat threshing, usually out of the way by this time in August, is now just getting off to a good start. Several 'rings' started their first runs Saturday on farms where fields were high and comparatively dry. Farmers who combined are mostly finished. Enough threshing in parts of the county, lias been done to establish a fairly accurate estimate. The season for small grain as well as row crops has been unusual. The cool weather and excessive moisture have produced much straw and forage. Where clover was planted with oats the nurse crop in many fields grew as tall as the oats, making both threshing and combining a problem. Forly to 60 Bushels.

The name of "Hutchins" has been associated with the early nioneer lii'e of Kossut.h County since March 1869 when D. 1-1. Hutchins settled in Algona and embarked in the implement business. Clayton J3.

Hutchins has written the following poem, "THEY HAVE I'AHSED ON," which seems to catch the spirit of those noble pioneers who laid the foundations of our present community. THEY HAVE PASSED ON They have nasscd on: Who lived and loved and built this cily fair Of homes and schools and stores And churches, heaven-aspiring. And planted grass and flowers and trees To make so beautiful a dwelling place For you and me; Who drained Ihe swamps and turned the tough sod. So that food could grow for their posterity Out of this richness that Nature took ages to elaborate. And we are heirs of this priceless inheritance! Is it meet to dissipate our lime And waste our substances In merely "living high"? Dare we forget all those who must come after us; Drawn by lh' resistless urge To grow into self-consciousness And have, at last, divine experiences After Life's temperings by Good and 111 That, soon or late, Try every son of Man? % On these foundations let us build. Above all, nobler characters. Fit to use well this wealth ' The'pioneers' toil Wrought from the wastes and wilds. They never knew of Failure's name; But were resolved, let come what may.
