SHORT,CORN CROP SENDS PIGS TO MARKET EARLY The short corn crop is expressing itself in this fall's hog marketings, which were up 28 percent during October over the same month last year. This affected the price of live hogs at Chicago. Good and choice hogs dropped from $29.50 n hundred to $25.00. The demand is expected to remain strong. R. C. (Cup) Bentiey, WOI market news editor, says. Late spring pigs, carried on for market after the first of the year, may be a paying proposition. The supply of better quality fed cattle from now until spring will be good, Bentley says, since the demand from feeder buyers is for ."this type. HAWKEYE HISTORY BRIEFS. SOME EVERGREENS WILL NEED WINTER MULCHING Evergreen trees or shrubs planted this fall or last spring will probably need a mulch to help them over the winter. A wet spring and dry summer likely have left them in a weakened condition. Evergreens are continually losing moisture through their needles, especially on warm days, says Robert Grau, Iowa State College forester. This requires a considerable amount of moisture. If mois'i' e is not available, they will turn brown and die from what is known as "winterkill." Mulching will help them, Grau explains, by preventing excessive surface evaporation, by making soil moisture more available and by keeping the soil at a more constant temperature. Leaves, straw or any commercial mulch will work. Where the ground is well supplied with moisture, it is a good idea to apply the mulch now, Grau points out. Spading the soil down about three inches and for a distance of two to three feet around the tree is also recommended. The greatest amount of snowfall at any Iowa station occurred in the calendar year of 1909 at Northwood—113.4 inches. * • • • • Joliet and Marquette were the first white men to see Iowa—on June 17, 1673, they described a "large Chain of very high Mountains" below present-day McGregor. ***** Pioneer editors were trail blazers on the Iowa frontier. The Du- Buque Visitor was the first Iowa newspaper — May 11. 1836. The Mormons established 'the Frontier Guardian at Council Bluffs in 1848. The Iowa Eagle was established at Sioux City on July 4. 1857. ***** Prize fighting was once taboo in Iowa. On November 17. 1873, Governor Cyrus C. Carpenter received a telegram of an impending fight near Council Bluffs, and. at' the request of the local county sheriff, sent a company of militia, the first time State militia was used in Iowa to preserve peace. Despite this precaution the Allen-Hogan prize fight for the heavyweight championship was fought at Pacific City. Iowa Farm Kernels SIFTED CORN. IN STOCK NOW!

Luglan of Kerrville, Texas, lost a diamond ring at the farm he owns near Jewel. Last week, while shelling corn Mr. Luglan and Mr. Darr sifted 1,000 bushels of corn prior to sending it through the sheller. \Luckily, they found the ring in good condition. The only safe way to clean a clogged corn picker is to stop the machine. ***** The average dairy herd improvement association cow in Iowa returned $2.59 in milk and butterfat for every dollar spent for her feed in 1946. She produced well over the 200-pound butterfat average of Iowa cows, according to the annual summary of the dairy herd improvement associations. ***** If you hope to control rats on the farm, every week must be a rat prevention week. While poison helps, cleanliness plays a big part in keeping down the rat population. And right now is a good time to clean up the farm. ***** There is still time to take soil samples before the ground is frozen too hard. If you have your soil tested now, you'll have the analysis in time to order fertilizer you'll need next spring. ***** Good ends and corners are the key to building strong fences, says Henry Giese, Iowa State College agricultural engineer. If corner posts aren't doing their job. the result will be sagging fences and livestock in the wrong field. ,•**** According to the USDA, milk- prices will be seasonally higher from now until late fall. But they will be lower than during the same period a year ago. 9 9 , For your Thanksgiving dinner, remember our High Quality Meats which are always carried in stock here.
