Lunch was served to choir after the program. Former Teaclierg Visit Here— Lu Ella and Sadie Potter, former Seneca teachers,,were dinner guests HAD our chickens out on clear ground last summer and they grew fine. The pullete began laying in the colony houses In August. There were things about the clean range, however, that marred complete success. , , I think we brought -back about half -the nunf- ber of birds that we hauled out. First, a hawk started in to feast on them. They were in a nice clean clover pasture so that they had no cover for hawks. Well, that bird took quite a toll before we finally sot a shot at him and ended his banditry. Then a mink took up the Job of preventing a market glut from'our flock. He was real thorough in his work, too, but he went by the way of a steel trap. Then coyote came along one morning when the chickens were out too early and snapped the heads off 6f 14 and maybe took another alone for lunch. A CORNFIELD lay next to this 1 * clover pasture and I had a picture of this.as a fine shade for the chickens when 'the weather got hot. It was, and the chickens spent all summer in this maize forest, but a pair of foxes found it a good place, too. I have no idea what their toll of chickens was. I hope some fox hunter enjoys the eport their legal protection gives. If I could get the opportunity to kill them I would take no sporting chances. So we learned that on our place, at least, clean ground Is too far from protection. Now we plan on some kind of a yard on as clean ground as we can provide nearby, with an occasional rotation.

Farm life this country Is the the scattering of people out upon the land where there are acres of sunshine 'and wind between families.

We aye thinking' now about how to use manure best rather than how to get rid of It. We are past the place where we can brag about our soil being so fertile that Its efficiency In crop production could not be destroyed. 1 UNDERSTAND some loan companies' are getting interested In soil erosion, They have discovered that erosion will even take a farm from under their mortgage. You see the. most striking cases In hilly fields where gullies form, Here it is an engineering problem first, with' dams and terraces. But all of our cultivated fields : that are sloping enough to be surface drained erode to some extent. Each year a thin layer of the best soil goes down the streams with the water. Seeding down often enough to keep a supply of plant roots in the soil checks this. It Is another argument for keeping less land always under the plow. one of the Knecht D *• Saturday Helen Nlelson took her niece l Clara, • Hanson, who has been YiHitlngr here, to Webster City.

I have never had any conception as to what the "odor- of sweet incense" might be, but I doubt that It is finer than this. One of the things that tends to make farm folks congenial in their associations is the common meeting in the. kitchen. Dad sees that what mother does for the good of the tribe. I have always maintained that a well- filled cpoky box was a good Insurance against family trouble. S EVERAL readers of these "Squibs" have asked me why I had nothing tp say about mother's turkeys this past season.
