Theo Fisher, Irvington, has rented the farm that will be vacated by Tom Forhurger north of Sexton March 1. The Fishers have a. large family, and have farmed In the Trvlng-ton neighborhood several years. Prior to that they lived at West Bend. A daughter attends high school at West Bend, and plans to graduate there next June. Lawrence Oish Is offering a three-year-old Brown Swire bull and two six-weeks-old bulls for sale In the want department today. Mr. Oish bought the former Joe Znhnltc 320-acre farm In Union township He when it r;omos to appreciation of I acres.

Drayton's Friday evening. Those present were the men, with their families, who cultivated Mr. Drayton's corn last summer while he was 111 with pneumonia. "Five Hundred" furnished entertainment for the evening. Jack Light and Mrs. Philip Baker, of St. Cloud, Minn., tied for one of the prizes. Sandwiches, cake, cookie*), and ice cream were served by the hostess. Mrs. Edith Rich returned to the home of her daughter, Mrs. Rose Kabin, the fore part of last week after spending some time at the Qn.1- braith i home in Algona, where she did the housework and cared for Mrs, Galbraith while the latter was ill. •. Several from here attended a dinner given at the community room of Good Hope church last week Thursday. Young folks here and from the Good Hope Sunday school claes were entertained at the community room at Good Hope Friday evening. The losers of a contest previously held by the class sponsored the oc- hfivo ever seen. There is a great tllr hnrn, tile hog house with paved food floor, tilo corn crib, and granary, tile garage, tile poultry house, etc.. and then Mr. Mawdslcy built a very fine brick and tilo home, and has slnc'o then brought a bride home to preside over it. Mr. Mawdsley started out as a boy by winning prizes for growing exceptionally good corn. He won farm machinery, drain tile, and money prizes. The state college put bis name in one of their bulletins. Eventually he got a little more grown up and the Trvington elevator acquired some of his managerial ability, and he has been getting a little more capable every year. Yes. and we have seen him smile several times, but a man with as many big tile buildings as J. C. has built on his farm has legends grow up about him. Times Not So Bad. We've just read a financial writer's statement that six and one- half billion of debts from stock market transactions alone have been paid since the peak of the boom in Ifl20. Installment purchase debts are being paid up, while new debts are not being contracted. Judging from conversations with friends and customers throughout Kossuth county we believe that seven or eight out of every ten In the county are better off today than a yera ago. Our general subscription sales, which reach into all parts of the county, were about 10 per cent larger in 1930 than in 1921). herd. The phone Is 20F32. Wm. Hauptloy, who has been farming 240 acres north of Wesley, will have the same farm again this year. His last season crops Includ- I cd 120 acres of corn that averaged | about 50 bushels to the acre, and 90 acres of oats that averaged 40 bushels. He raised 60 Spotted Poland spring pigs from 10 litters. Mrs. Haiiptley was Cora Eden before her marriage, and is a daughter of Mr. arid Mrs. John Eden. William is a son of Nick Hauptley, northeast of Wesley. The couple have two girls, two and four years old/ The Leghorn World, national poultry paper, recently printed a lengthy article about the Hamilton farm and 'hatchery at Bancroft. O'. R. Ernst, of the paper, visited the Hamtltons' farm, making a 130- mile drive to get there. The fine general farm business was noted by Mr. Ernst, who gave details of the equipment and methods of management as discussed In the Advance. Mr. Ernst complimented the Hamiltons on the spic and span condition of the farm, and the health and quality of the Tancred strain. The Hamiltons are building a poultry business that will soon be known as well nationally as it is in Kossuth and Iowa. Jewell M. Larson, who farms at the Plum Creek station on land owned by his father-in-law, George Miller, kept 15 sows last spring, and saved 70 spring pigs from them. He Is saving 20 sows for this spring farrow. Corn averaged 40 bushels on 100 acres, and 50 acres of oats Farmers' Directory BABY CHICKS On al1 orders for baby chicks placed before February 1 a 10% discount will be allowed Also an aclditlona 15% off on all February hatched chicks 10% orf on all chicks hatched bj March 20 and 5% off for the balance of March.

The Advance subscription list, which has just been counted with all stop orders taken out, has a larger county circulation than ever before on January 1. Though we have no exact information. We should think after casually looking through the files that more subscriptions are paid in advance than is usual at this time. There is no doubt that many people are in financial straits at this time, and my sympathy goes out to them, but it is foolish for the rest of the county to let opportunity for progress slip by because of hard times talk. Forburgers to Move. Tom Forburger, who has farmed 11 years northwest of Wesley on the old Martin Larkin' homestead, is, to move soon to the 240-acre farm owned by his father-in-law, Albert J. Bleich, on the paving east of Wesley. This land is to be vacated by Mr. Bleich who will retire from farming. Eighty acres of the land which Mr. Forburger has been operating was bought by Mrs. Forburger's grandfather Martin Larkin a pioneer of Wesley township, at $3 an acre. Mrs. Forburger was born on the farm, and later came back to keep house there for -her husband as a bride. Her mother, Airs. Albert Bleich, also was born, on "the same- farm, and also later lived on the land. Mr. Bleich added 80 acres to the property, and now owns it. Grandfather Larkin cont nued to We on the land first with his daughter. Mrs. Bleich, and then with his granddaughter, Mrs. For- bureer. till his death six yearB_ago. was a fair to good crop. Mr. Larson said a fire started by a train during last summer's dry weather burned over six acres of the oat field. A grinder was at work grinding grain which was spouted into a dry farrowing house that served as temporary bin for the feed. There was a good fire In the tank heater, and plenty of fodder, and other feed nearby to take care of the stock on the cold day that we called. Ida, 13-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Halpin, has two interesting . scrapbooks which she made by clipping pictures and news Items from the Sunday Register rotogravure section, the Literary Digest, and other sources. One of the scrapbooks 'was started about the time Lindberg made hie Paris flight, and -this part is a complete sketch of probably several hundred pictures and items that tell of his life beginning with his parents, his babyhood, school days, and on down to date with pictures of Ann Morrow Lindberg, the wedding, and pictures of Lindy Jr. The other scrap book is filled with pictures of odd and curious scenes, particular rare birds, animals, reptiles, etc. The subjects in the scrapbooks are well selected and make an interesting record, showing industry. Mr. Halpin is engineer at the light plant. Ellis McWhorten, who lives here in Algona, and who has land • in Portland township farmed by his sons, hae been experimenting with a brace for steel fence posts. The brace is of steel, and is intended to fasten to the outside of the steel post, so that leaning cattle cannot push the posts out of line. Mr. McWhorter has applied for a patent, but has not investigated the manufacturing- possibilities. He has a drill set up in his work shop at home so that he can make the parts in a small way himself. Another thing we saw at the McWhorter home was a large knarled old box elder tree. Some 20 or 30 feet up there is a small limb above a large COTTON'S CHICKS, Iowa accredited—two years B. W.

Loyd Wellendorf, at his Leghorn farm adjoining the fair grounds has excavated the lawn In fr ont ^ his house for a sunken garden, and j as built a large double lily pool to the center of it. and will have beautiful and unusual view. A large conifer at one side of the Lafden tas left high above the level of the present garden floor, but a pebble wall built a little distance from the trunk gives the appearance of a potted evergreen tree. r pebbled walls have been around large flower beds on old, and 10 limb, but the small limb was turned back and had united with the larger limb below it. Mr. 'McWhorter said the tree had been that way since he came to the place. The McWhor- ters were married June 23, 1886. They have raised a family, acquired land, and prospered.
