Fires were in Otto Wcstling's basement, an automobile fire on Thoringlon street, Norton machine shop, where a chimney burned out, roof fire on the John Briggs home, Cook's lunch room when grease on a stove ignited, and at the McEnroe stockyards office where a stove pipe set fire to wall paper and 2x4's.

Last year there were 228 marriages, compared with 143 in 1933, and only 99 in 1932. Driver's licenses (not auto but personal) first issued in 1932, for two years, then extended with- out payment Mil Ihls .famiify. have again been extended, and driver's licenses issued three I years ago will be good in Iowa I till January 1936—these arc the small tickets permitting holders to drive a private car. • Income tax forms were *t the ! Advance office for pick up. Every farmer should have two main forms: a single sheet; a 4- pagc sheet reporting farm Income in detail. If he has paid a hired man more than $1,000 he also needs two other forms.

"NO SCOURS WITH NUTRENA PIG-16" Gabriel Heattcr, Famous Newscaster, Reports This Same Story From Hog Raisers Across the Country. These people mid mmiy more say "NO SCOURS WITH NUT'RENA ric-16." Tliis is exciting nows for hog raisers. This new complete, pelleted starter feed was developed and tested at the Nutrcna Research Farm specifically to prevent and control bacterial scours. Reports from the field vouch for its success. The key is its new balance of nutrients and additives. Nutrients are in forms that arc readily digested and absorbed. The new additive combination — two potent antibiotics and a sulfa drug — fight disease organisms most troublesome at this stage. We have new Nutrcna Pig-16 now. Stop in soon and guard against scours.
