Fi'orn John D. Magnusson, who lives nrar the Vic Johnson corner, we learned that Mr. Johnson is i> real old timer compared to most of us. Mr. Magnusson said he had lived | n the same house for 40 years and that Mr. Johnson and his father Lars Johnson lived there when he came. Mr. Magnusson said he was himself an orphan, referring to the fact that he nnd His good wife, who cliefl in February, 1923, never had children, and he continues to live on alone. Mr. Magmisson finds it hard to remember $:itos, but said he came here in J8K2, or 4,8 years ago. He reads n. groat deaJ, nnd I.s well posted though not active in getting out to ifeet as many people ns he formerly illil. Mrs. Albert W. Brand of Letlynrd is well posted i)ii livestock markets "ml marketing, and was taking, the market O ff the radio the day we called a month ago, and had every thing classified, and written down systematically as it came in.

It was for Mr. and Mrs. Andrews' son <hat the Wesley legion post waa nahied, for he ^ as an early casualty in the World war. M. T. McGuire, Algona grading contractor, finished his season's contracts three-weeks ago, and we had a chance to ask what a road grader's work was like. Mr. McGuire employs 70 men eight months'of the years, and keeps 110 horses, six caterpillar tractors, and five road ilevator grading machines busy. He has IB bunk wagon outfits, and In addition there are six more bunk wagon outfits owned by Jule Sei- 'ert, of Ledyard, who works with Mr. McGuire. The Seifert -burtk and cook wagons are painted to represent a train, nnd have observation platforms, and everything. The Seifert train makes an impres- pive appearance when hooked together In winter quarters just at the .south edge o£ Ledyard. Mr. McGuire said he had finished 9,7 miles of grading in Henry, Floyd, Cherokee, AVinnebago, and Kossuth counties. A mile of grading re- (luires handling 5,000 to 20,000 cubic yards of earth. This has been one of the biggest years Mr. Me- Gulrp has had. He has made his headquarters in Algona for six years, owns a fine home on Phil- lip.s .street and has a family of three sturdy boys. Mrs. McGuire is a daughter of Mrs. Julia. Voight, who lives here.

The couple will stay on the Melnzer farm again next year, and the landlord thinks well enough of ils tenant to build a new barn and a new concrete porch, and perhaps other improvements that we did not se. Albert Kressln, Lotts Creek, husked WOO bushels of corn from 28 acres this year, or nearly 43 bushels an acre. His oats threshed 1100 bushels from 25 acres, or 48 bushels in acre. Up to a month ago he had saved 55 spring pigs from eight liters. Mr. and Mrs. Kressin milk ?ight cows, and also have a good- )l7.ed flock of poultry.' Mr. Kressln came to Kossuth county from Waterloo 37 years ago, and started "arming for himself 32 years ago. He bought the present 80 "acres 12 years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Kres- have four daughters: Mrs. Walter Ohm at Fenton; Matilda, who las taught at Fenton three years; Lillian in the Algona telephone exchange two years; and Alvia, teaching rural school. Mrs. Kres- sln has three children by her former marriage.

Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Steven ,...„ Mrs. Thomas Steven, Algona, at- tor mixing, flows through the 'grinder and the ground feed i.s blown into! the bin or into a wagon if the grain' is to be hauled away. An oat huller is to be installed before the coming season of baby ithick raising. Another rough grimier in the driveway is installed high enough to be above a wagon or truck box. There is a Howe scale under the drveway at this point so that a wagon or truck can be driven onto the scales, weighed, and the desired amount of ground feed weighed into it without moving from the scales. The ground-feed storage bin lias a loading door at the same point. W. T. Kennedy of Burt was the contractor . Mr. Hamilton expects to grind chick feed and mash of his own com- ,)ounj;ling for sale next year and fiopes thus to add another factor .n the successful and profitable raising o£ baby chicks for customers. Another addition at the farm is a litter "carrier track extended outside the barn and swinging on .1 movable boom either over the manure spreader or over the manure pile. All the frame buildings have recently been painted straw color trimmed a . uniform with apple tended the funeral of Harvey's aunt, Mrs. Clapsaddle, of Galva, last ..week Tuesday.

The effect Is harmonious and gives an enlarged and impressive appearance to the group of buildings on the farm. The Hamiltons have one of the largest farm hatcheries In Iowa, and sell baby chicks anc other Leghorn stock on a stronger guarantee' than most competitors over the state can afford because they have strong healthy chicks. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Garrelt Johnson, who farms a lit tie way west of Doan church showed us a 11,500-bushel wire crib of c^rn he has stored in addition to his permanent crib full. Ml Mrs. D. H.

Mrs. Brown said ler husband had raised 65 spring )lgs from 10 litters. Out in the 'eld he and John Swalve were lusking good corn, but we"could not ! t him to estimate how good. L. w. Kessel, farming southwest of Elmore on 240 acres owned by ils father T. P. Kessel, had raised 94 spring pigs from H3 litters, and 44 fall pigs from five of the same sows up to late October when we called. The first batch were straight spotted Poland, and the second or fall pigs were a cross of spotted Poland and big type black Poland. Mr. Kessei.said the latter were the best pigs. He had husked 30 bushels an acre from 80 acres corn, and 40 bushels an acre from 70 acres of oats. Mr. Kessel was husking 40 acres corn for his brother on an adjoining quarter section also owned by "Dad" Kessel. He -has used a corn picker live years and has recently added a new tractor to his his equipment. Mr. Kessell and his wife Flora came from Illinois a. few years ago.

We are ^old that one of the young men who was sent to the penitentiary from Webster City for robbing the St. Benedict bank is a nephew of a farm woman in this county and is known by others. The folks here are among the most highly respected In their own neighborhood and the story of the youth's conviction must have been a shock to those who knew him. At the Waltei* Meyer home just west of Lakota about a month ago we met Duane, eleven-months-boss of the house, and visited a few minutes with his parents. Mrs. Meyer was Aleda, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Johnson, who formerly fanned a little way north but now live at Lakota. Walter, Is a son of Mr. and Mrs, J. A.

Ernest Christ, farming east of Lakota, threshed Si, 400 bushels of oats from 50 acres this season, and grew 40 acres of good corn. H« also had 14 acres alfalfa,, and was considering Hroing more land and a "head man" has nothing on us.' Stockmen tell that the gangster picked a likely looking "cow", asked ho w much, pealed-off $200 in bills, and told them to wrap it up arid send it home to his farm. Probably when the "cow" arrives home the hired man on the place will get off some such a wisecrack like the one Lee O. Wolfe pulled on this depart ment a few years ago.
