' Walter Krause, Lotts Creek ownshlp, who list year Installed a ,240-egg Jameaway Incubator^ on Is poultry farm and later Increased 10 capacity to 4,320, has now in- tailed nine more sections In his In- ubator, making a capacity of 7,660 ?gs, or more than double, what he Larted with, Mr. and Mrs; Krause Iflo have added several pens of ingle comb White Leghorns of ancred strain In addition to the R. Rhode Island Reds they formerly fllsed exclusively. * The Krause farm has dealt large- y with folks who know 'them right ere In Kossuth, and has given uch satisfaction that even before Vew Year's they had orders booked or the coming season totaling more 'mn 25 per cent of all last season's atch. • There have been addition* to the locks, chiefly by the purchase' of utelde hatching eggs from good ources, and 50 cents ah egg was aid for..one.hatching of 200 eggs, 'he birds are all closely culled, and .re B. W. D. tested. They are kept quarters, of good itrength-bulldlng feeds, and plenty >f sunlight and water, but there is no forcing of the breeders to get maximum egg lay. In fact farmers who go , to the Walter Krause farm to buy 'baby chicks can see the laying flocks out of which their chicks come, and can 'eel that they have Had the same clnd of everyday care and attention that an average farmer is able to give, and yet the flocks 'are evi- farms this Christmas. Mr. Oodden own's the monument works here at Algona. His father Is a long time monument dealer at Bmmetsburg. The farms are 225 and 380 acre* respectively, and came free of Incum- brance with taxes paid up to date. "Dad" Oodden «tlH has three other farms In South Dakota, and seven more in Iowa, Mr. Godden said the farmers in the neighborhood of his land in South Dakota had a bad year this season because of drought, and many failed even to pay taxes, but he hopes the land will become profitable to him in time. Both properties are rented to good German tenants. The. Ernest Bauer family, whose sale -was advertised for last Monday, will 'return to Sterling, 111. They-have farmed in the neighborhood for 11 years, Wesley having n good, well-ventilated where there la plenty Workers during 1930, Both are In second year high school. The Fran- Zens have rented the same farm for next year. Council Minute* Algona, Iowa, December 26, 1930 —City council met In regular session on thte day at the city hall, and among other things allowed the following bills: ELECTRIC FUND .1. W.

The Reds are big rugged birds, and .every nest in the laying house was occupied when we called. The Reds of early March hatch were laying by August 1 without being In any way forced. The Leghorns of April 1 hatch also were laying In August. There are more than 600 laying hens on the farm to begin this seaso'n. The first Incubator will be set February 1. Prices of chicks will be just a bit lower this season, but we expect the Krause incubator to be booked to capacity early n the season largely by nearby farmer orders. At the had the Kunz Apple Treat farm of 385 acre* for several seasons. They have 'rented .200 , acre* at Sterling,. whlcH .16 their'former home. The family Includes a boy and four girls. They have done well ,at Wesley, tout want to get back among old friends and relatives. Mrs. Bauer said she thought there would be better markets for dairying closer to Chicago. They have been milking 19 cows here. We wish them success when they get to their new home. , We understand that the Apple Treat farm' will be occupied by the Leek- telg family of Corwlth. Dick Meyer, who farms north of Tltonka, bought his first 160 acres, on which he lives, for $49 an acre 22 years ago. Twelve years ago he bought' another' quarter. section for $92 an acre. During • the boom he refused $300 an acre for the home quarter, and could have sold the unimproved ^quarter' which he bought last for $226 an acre. We wonder If we who are alive today will ever get a chance to refuse -that much .money per acre, for similar land again. Many think we will see land go even higher in Iowa. Mr. Meyer hae lived 51 years in Kossuth. He and Mrs. Meyer have three children, Including a son at home, and two married daughters. Mrs. Henry Soear, who farms a little way west, and Mrs. Henry Ites,' of Buffalo Center, are the daughters.

Their winnings Included three firsts, two seconds, and three third prizes. After the breeding season the Krause farm sold eggs at market price, and had an income larger than from the dairy herd. We believe the Walter Krause. poultry farm Is one of the good factors in Kossuth poultry raising, and we are glad to se e It open the season with their advertising In the Farm Directory. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. We mentioned to Ej' C. Hancher, new telephone manager here, that he had the earne name as the late M. P. Hancher, of Rolfe, whose purebred hog advertisements formerly appeared frequently in the Advance and were told that M. P. Hancher was an uncle of our telephone manager. John Simon, on his farm south of Algona In Cresco township, painted the big barn, corn crib, 'machine shed, and tool house with a good "coat of red last season. He remodeled and painted the house last year. Mr. Simon has been, on the farm 17 years and has .built it up to good production. The past season he has had good crops and is fairly well satisfied with the season of 1930. C. M. Cox, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Cox, south of Algona, will move next spring onto a farm at Austin. He traded a farm In Missouri for the Minnesota property last spring. The Missouri farm was in the drought stricken territory this past summer, while the Minnesota farm had good crops, and Mr. Cox doubtless feels he traded farms Just in time. "Dad" Cox is farming 40 acres of his land this year, and has the balance of 120 acres rented out. He keeps six horses, raised CO hogs, and said he feels better at work than to 40 bushels an acre of oats from 120 acres. He maintains a herd of 60 Shorthorn cattle, of which ten are milked. He bought his 240 acres two ^years ago, built a 26x36 addi- tion'on the new modern barn and now has one of the best improved farms In that section. The buildings are all large and well built, new within 12 years, and Mr. Young- wlrth paid only $200 an acre for the property. He saved 75 spring pigs this eeason from 14 litters, and JjO more fall pigs from eight litte'rs. Mrs. Youngwlrth was Helen Freese, of Marshall county before marriage. The couple have six children frbm five to 16 years old. There are four • boys and two girls—just the right proportion for a big farm. George Stewart, who farms one of the Robert Stewart farms south of Algona, was pretty well satisfied with 1930 In so far as crop and stock production wa£ concerned. He husked about 45 bushels of corn to the acre from 100 acres, and had 53 bushels of oats to the acre on 85 acres. From 16 spring litters, 100 pigs were saved,"and from eight of the eame sows In fall litters 50 pigs were saved. Of the spring pigs 50 were sold in October at 200 pounds average at $9.30 to $9.40 cwt. at 6% months old. Mr. Stewart lias farmed the land six years, and before that his father farmed it 27 years. He has seven or eight acres of alfalfa, liming, better Fred Baumgartner. gravel. K. C, State Bank, checks.. G. Ray Smith, meter reading ._ 33.25 N. W. Bell Telephone Co., service __ 13.70 C.

He had just bought his auto license, and then dropped in to make us a call. Mr. Fisher said his wife was then enjoying better health, which we were glad to hear. At times.during the past, couple of wee^s the office hae been pretty well crowded with our friends and customers from around the county. Many seem to put auto license and Advance subscription on their errand list together and call at the courthouse and the Advance office same trip, one and all We are glad to see which was started without and says alfalfa suite him than sweet clover. About 30 cattle are kept on the 320 acres. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart have a ona In third year of daughter Le- hlgh. school F. L, Miller, \yho lives retired on 20 acres south of town, and who is father of contractor and bui^er George Miller, Algona, showed the writer redwood dressers, walnut cedar lined chests, wardrobes, etc., bujjt by George and another son Polph, who gtlli lives at. home. The furniture Js good cabinet making, and had been made by tb,e boys Jo furnish their own rooms while they were still in high school. Gporge was designer an4 builder of last; winter's model home here In Algona, and has since enjoyed very ( good business In his lind as contractor. and builder. Polph Is employed with him In various capacities. Ignat? Schueler; west of Wesley, told us OH} our latest trip around his way that he had now lived the same neighborhood 48 y bavins came there wjth. h's ffctljer, the late Joseph gchuejer, when only two years old.

There is also a younger daughter at home. Dick Beenken, who farms north of Titonka, is another good Kossuth citizen who came from Weiner, Ostfrlesland, Germany. He came from the old country 30.years ago, and five years later bought his first J.20 acres of land for $27.50 an acre. He added to his holdings in 1906, paying $80 an acre. / His latest land purchase was a quarter section in 1018, for which he paid $200 an acre. Mr. Beenken is not a large man physically, and is at least 50 pounds lighter in weight than his oldest son. Mr. Beenken has been a widower since 1926. There are two girls and four boys in the family from nine to 26 years of age. All are at home with "Dad." "The children are Kate, and Grace, Herman G., Ben Jr., Dick A., and Harold L. We asked Mr. Beenken how his hogs came out and learned' that 130 spring pigs had been saved from only 22 litters. In response to a question Mr. Beenken said he does not make a practice of' raising fall pigs, but the boys Joked him, and claim that he has six fall pigs this year. Guess one of the sb^vs stole her nest, and gave the boss a litter of pigs whether he planned for tl^em or not. Carl Franzen, who last March moved from a farm at the edge of Wesley to the land north of Sexton where the Pornblere have farmr ed, says he is well pleased with his first season on the larger farm of 360 acres. He got nearly 40 bushels of corn to the acre on 130 acres, and threshed 5,000 bushels of oats from 180 acres. From nine sow? 66 pjge were saved. There is a herd of 20 cattle, some purebred and some grade Holstelns. The Franzens operated a dairy at Wesley for ten years, but now sell only to the creamery- VP arou.nd Tltonka there are several families of Franzens who we believe are al} of German descent but the Carl Franzens, of Wealey, came from, Poxholm, Oster- gotland, Sweden.
