For the last few years Mr. BntCH owned nnd managed the Old Dray Shop, and l.s almost more of a machinist and engineer than farmer. However, In addition to the machinery, ho also showed UH the seed corn room in the basement where there was a quantity of his famous Silver King seed nicely hun* up. Mr. Bale* said his best seed was on tho other farm operated In Plum Creek township by Ed Jergenson, manager. The Union township farm Is operated without horses and Is Farmall equipped. Earl Laurltzen regular man on this unit Is of the Mr. the , who I farm, a new homo on will occupy it himself Bates' farming. Altogether 200 acres of corn was 'grown, and from this 7,000 bushels were picked, with 20 to 25 acres hogged down. The two farms have rained ZU pigs this year. Mr. Bates said he was satisfied that he could raise plgo cheaper< than the present price for buying feeder pigs. Mr. and Mrs. Bates farmed 25 years, then moved into town for seven' years while their daughter went to school here, and are now back at the farm. They have one of the finest houses In Kowsuth county and have 280 acres of good land on the farm, and in addition have their Plum Creek township farm, u).so n good going concern. Up in the top of the house Mr. Bates has a room with plenty of built-in drawers and a big table that runs the full length of the room. AVhen he has time this winter he will arrange his filed and indexed copies of the Breeders' Gazette and Wallaces' Farmer, which have been saved many years. The drawers under the table top are just the right size to hold his filed bulletins on crops, stock, etc. The bulletins are grouped according to subjects in small boxes made by Mr. Bates. Bach box is labeled and there is no loss of time In find-' ing what is wanted. One box held sales catalogues, chiefly Duroc Jer.r eey. Another held corn bulletins, including one In which the State college had used Mr. Bates' own corn as an illustration In a demonstration. That bulletin was written ten years ago giving results of breeding and selecting Sliver King corn. Mr. and Mrs. Bates bave one daughter, Edith, who completes her studies at Cedar. Falls this year. The name of their farm home is Woodcrcst. Ducks Bring Profit. Gottlieb Hantwhnan, farming 200 acres a little west of Lu Verne, raises no pigs, but- goes into the neighborhood around his home and buys feeder pigs feeding perhaps 1,000 or more a year, besides many cattle. He has 8 cattle on feed now, •but had not bought all his pigs ten days ago when we called, and had only 110 feeder pigs on the farm. He raised 65 acres corn thifi year, which yielded 50 bushels to the acre, next year, coming back from near Hampton, where he has been farm- Ing other property he owned. The Clcrber farm has been unoccupied for several years, Mr. Gerbe. having farmed it In connection with hln oust farm. Both properties are well Improved quarter section. Mr Oerher bought tho west farm in 11114, JUKI prairie land, built a com plete new set of buildings, otherwlKL Improved it, and then bought the east farm, on which he has since lived. The Gerber herd of Angut, cattle l.s one of the profitable herds of Cresco township. The family came here from Roanoke, Minn., where both Mr. and Mrs Gerber were born and reared. Theii old home neighborhood was largely of the Christian Apostlic faith, c the family now attends a church o the same denomination at "VVes Bend. The youngest of the children is son Erwln, a strapping young man able to do a man's work. A daugh ter Mildred Is at home, and thre daughters arc married. The man-let daughters are Mrs. Paul Strahn Sabeth, Kans.; Mrs. Samuel Mog ler, West Bend; and Mrs. Bruell man. There nrc live grandchildren three girls, and two boys. Mr. and Mrs. Gerber are stl young folks in appearance, and w were surprised to find that the; have .such a grown-up family. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT C. E. Kolla.sch, who farms sout of St. Benedict, finished husldn 170 acres of corn December 3. He said the yield would be around 40 bushels. Mr. Kollasch has 1 some grown-up boys who help him wade through the farm work nowadays in rapid fashion. L. L; Cole, northeast of Lu Verne, raised 125 acres of corn this year, and Mrs. Cote said it made a satisfactory yield, but she did not know the figures. Some 600 bushels had been shelled December 3, and the cribs were bulging with the rest of the crop. George Frantz, who has managed the Banna Switch elevator many years, is now dealing in coal along with the grain business. He had sold five cars up to ten days ago. Corn was being shelled and delivered at a rapid rate, and Mr. Frantz did not have much time to visit with us, so we renewed his daily paper and got away. Conrad Knecht, farming with his son Wilfred on 360 acres east of Algona, had 100 acres corn averaging around 40 bushels to the acre and threshed 6,500 bushels of oate from 120 acres. They saved 64 gooO pigs from eight litters and they kept eight or ten cows. Wilfred .farms some land across the road for him- Wflti-atlng t eam at the county fair ftth Doris Brown, now Mrs; Keith, ive years ago. The Cresco girls lub is not now active. Saturday wo stopped at D. A, Teeter'n a n ,i renewed his mihscrlp- ions. Corn has been as good a rop us a year ago, averaging 35 to bushels on nr, acres, and the tock Inn, done well, 90 spring pigs mvlng IIOM, saved from 13 litters. <tr. Tcc'tor had boon out In the snow! .ml bagged a. couple of rabbits. He aid his younger son was the rabbit luntor of the family, however. The came to tho Algona nelgh- )orho<id in inn, first renting the f. farm west of Algona now operated by .1. .1. Elbert. They •ire now In Cresco township on an ?• W. ninglcy farm. In Addition o the I no acres in the farmstead, Mr. Teeter rents 90 acres across the 'oad. The Teeter home always appears like one of, the comfortable 'arm homes wo read about in story looks. A comfortable fire in the icating stove, a reading lamp on a big living room table, with perhaps a dish of nuts or applet* as a center- Ulecp, and the family gathered around in the evening, with Dad smoking his pipe. One son, Franz, s married and farms ISO acres next .vest, while a son Verne has a quarter section next north, owned by Henry Baler, and is also married with a baby boy. There is a married daughter, Charlotte, In southern Iowa who also has a baby daughter, and there are three boys at home. Recently a daily paper 'salesman canvassed the Algona vicinity offering his paper at various prices ranging from $2.50 to $4 a year and took a couple of dozen orders for subscriptions. The paper looked much like tlic higher-priced paper mos people in this county are now tak ing, and in times like the presen we all try to save wherever we can But the cheaply priced daily pape proved disappointing when the sub scriptlon started coming. The littl paper had only one wire, no photo graphers, was filled with unimport ant local news, and was delivers from one to three days after it ? wa prinfed. The result was that 17 o the subscribers for the paper imme dlately bought the higher-priced pa per they were accustomed to takin and which meets their needs. The had hoped to save money this yea on the lower priced paper, but a things turned out they merely atl ded the cost of the newcomer heir regular newspaper budget. I ow turns out that the salesman fo little paper sold so few sub criptions per day while here tha is salary, and expenses amounted o more tlian the money he took in rom sales of the paper, in fact, robably twice a.s much. If a daily aper is worth the money charged or it, there will be no need for pay- ng salary and expenses to get it old. A few cents on the dollar of ommission are all that the worth- 1 vhile newspapers have to pay in elling expenses. We were glad to have a few mln- ites with an old friend Krank | Chambers one day last week. He and his son-in-law, Ed Hof, farm' mst northeast of Lu Verne under he firm name of Chambers & Hof. They rent 80 acres of William Schultz and own the balance of their land. On the Schultz 8Q we understood the yield to be 1850 bushels of oats from 40 acres and 2,000 bushels of corn from 40 acres. On the home farm eight acres_ of corn was hogged down, 15 acres went into the big silo, and the rest was husked. This corn yielded high', being grown on land that has been IIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIH 1 Closing-Out one weeK FUL-0-PEP GO MASH . 3 m IJKLB, SACK p (*egulw prico 3.25) atarfr fta*., Jfcc. 13 and 70 acres of oats which ^ad yield' ed 50 bushels to the acre. Mr. Hanselman wanted us to mention the activities of the women folk rather than to tell about his crops and stock. From Helen we learned that mother had started last winter with five ducks and a drake, and from these had saved and hatched SOT baby ducklings. Prom the 307 she raised 220 ducks. Already 100 were sold for the Thanksgiving market, at an average of $1.40 each for dressed ones and about 7oc each for the live ones. The other 120 are doubtless sold now to the Christmas market. That will be $220 realized from a start with those six old ducks. Maybe if -Air. Hanselman could raise pigs as successfully as Mrs. Hanselman can raise ducks he would not have to go out with his money bags, and buy feeder pigs and feeder cattle every year but instead could raise his own pigs. . Helen added that those ducks laid enough extra eggs so that three settings 'were^sold to neighbors, and perhaps 10 or 16 egfe-s not used for hatching. Then Mrs. Hanselman gave us her side of it, and she says Helen was right hand helper with both the poultry and the housework. Helen was at the moment P««»* the finishing touches on a huthday cake for Mother Hanselman. had the cake all frosted, and uefngTome kind of a gadget to d.rop little markers of red sugar over w, one marker for each year self and may decide to go to college before long. He is the only boy in a family which includes four girls George F. Grimsehl, south of the Hanna station, said his father Charles Grimsehl, who now lives with a daughter, Mrs, Richard Wag ner, paid only $8 an acre for the fine quarter section which Georg< owns and operates. The farm nov has a substantial set of building and that look of permanence whlc comes to a farmstead when th property has been in the same goo hands and well cared for over a Ion period of years. Harry Bunding, of Cresco town ship, has his usual growthy lot < spring shoats in his feeding lot th. fall. The best ones of April 20 far- row weighed around 280 pounds a week ago. From 14 litters he had saved 81. They are a cross of Duroc blood with Spotted Poland. Harry said his 45 acres of corn probably would average 45 bushels to the acre. He rents some land extra, from Tom Metcalf and has grown oats on it, the average yield being 30 to 85 bushels on 60 acres, part Sundlng and part Metcalf land.
