Eagle township about nine mile northwest of Swea City, had a lo of bad luck after his HtUe glr developed infection from the bite of a dog over a year ago. The Mag nusons are good farmers but big doctors' bills as a result of the child's illness and expensive trip; to the Mayo clinic in Rochester taki a lot of money. But the Magnuson! would leave nothing undone tha might help their daughter. Then a short time ago tragedy came to the Magnuson home. The tittle girl died. After that there was no blue sky for the Magnusdn home. Harvesl time was at hand and the corn was pretty good, although seven or eight acres of their 66 were drowned oul by the heavy rains. But it had always required extra help to get ;he corn in and this year money was scarce and probably the Mag- nusons didn't know just what to do. But their neighbors did and 54 men and seven women took over he farm, Monday morning of last week. Elmer DItsworth, Elvin ""ener, Andrew Madsen and Peter dadsen came in with two row ilckers. There were in addition, 34 men picking corn by hand with 16 wagons and teams and six tractors pulling the loads up from the field and about ten more men up in the yard unloading corn. The men were Ell Quam, Bert Owens, Peter StefanskI, Richard Magnu- son, George Magnusoh, Webster Owens, Floyd Smith, Christian Madsen, Vernoft Cutler, Leonard Anderson, Frank Pierce, Reuben Johnson, Harold Juhl, Frank Anderson, Sylvan Larson, J. W. Dahl, Andrew Dahl; Charles Johnston, Nela Madsen, Jens Madsen, Chas. Ven Campe, Kenneth Langlaus and L. G. Cutler. Marshall Prescott, Donald Struss, Hugo Mukkanen, Maynard Madsen, Albert Eisner, Otto Jensen, Gust Monson, Wayne Whltford, Orville Ramsey, Almen Meyer, Chester Rowley, Leo Miller, Courtland Rowley, Harold Fischer, Elmer Isenberg, Albert Manning, Roy Anderson, Oscar Stromberg, Julius Erickson, Glen Hall, Wayne Owens, Harry Curtis, Vanner Johnson, Arthur Rowley, Harry Chambers and Lynn Owens. Seven women cooked for the workers with Mesdames Elvin Fenner, Julius Erickson, Christian Madsen, Peter Madsen, Andrew Madsen, Lynn Owens and Walter Magnuson all there. Fifty-four Kossuth men can husk a field in a hurry and altogether about 2,800 bushels were stored away In the cribs. It's true corn las sold at higher prices but all he same this year's crop is In, something that looked almost impossible before Monday. If there were one or two pairs : eyes with tears of joy, apprecia- lon and friendship in them, is it to ie wondered at? f^OCIETV QUOTES | Rural Club Meetings— Mrs. Frank Miller entertained th I Cresco Mothers and Daughters clu at her home, Wednesday evening with Mrs. Scott Moore assisting.

IiLt-i .-. *-~**~~ Meet Tinker The Dog Who Rides a Oar Tinker, the dog that rides like a Cossack, has at last had his identity disclosed. Many Algonians have seen the dog which rides not a horse but the turret top of a V-8 afld wondered whose he was, how he happened to be riding there and how he stuck on. The dog, part German shepherd and part bull dog, belongs to Bob and Gordon Giddings of Burt He has been riding the top of the car since 1936 and is a quite familiar sight around the county. Tinker's riding began one day when the boys had been swimming, the dog with them. The boys dried off, but Tinker was wet and how to get him home was a problem until some one suggested putting him oh the roof and driving slowly. The idea worked fine and was repeated after the next swimming trip. The dog soon was able to stick to the top like glue and seemed to prefer to ride there. Bob and Gordon say ne has been known to fall off only three times. How he sticks on is mostly a puzzle, but ne scratches up the top of the car quite a bit and the pads on his feet doubaless help him. He is ajftirly big fellow, about 20 inches high and 50 pounds in weight, but he flattens out on top of the car and rides like a monarch surveying those below him. Tinker la not only an accomplished rider, but valuable in other ways, his owners report He goes with Mr. Giddings on the mail route and will let no unauthorized person near tne mail. Besides being an enthusiastic hunter and fine watch dog, he Is very good with children for although he has bitten trespassers, he will not touch children, no matter how they tease him, but simply walk away. "He's a dog any one would be proud to own" is what Gordon and Bob have to say about the unusual animal. ment* WtoJcb; light refresh- were served.
