The latchery dealt with about 125 pawns. The incubator capacity has been increased t 0 22,000 at a setting. !• arm flocks selling hatching eggs .o the Cottons Include, in White Rocks, which are the' largest sellers, the flock of Charles Dlttmer, Leonard Dlttmer, Stoutenberg & Tones, F. C. Dacken, and R. T. Angus. These flocks are widely tnown as pioneer and leading White Rock flocks in the Lone Rock neighborhood. Barred Rock flocks Include those of Arthur Luedtke and Aaron Steussy. the latter of Lu Verne. The Steussy flock has the most highly bred and expensive Barred Rock foundation stock in Sherman township. The Luedtke flock, near Lone Rock, Is similarly known as one of the best hereabouts. White Leghorn hatching eggs are supplied by the Theo. Weisbrod flock, which Is being built up with eomo of the best 'high-production strain cockerels. Buff Leghorn hatching- eggs come from the E. K- Johnson flock at Cylinder. This is one of the best to be found anywhere. All the bords are closely culled, state-Inspected, and BWD tested. Tho "livability" of Cotton chicks last year was excellent. For instance Mrs. Harold Jones raised •1,030 chicks out of a purchase of 1,100; the Roy Jensens raised 485 out of 500; the Henry Engstrome raised 290 out of 300; etc. The pullets began laying early and produced well. Mr. Cotton has taken a personal Interest In customers that ;has made money for them. For Instance, last spring he encouraged the feeding of chicks for earlier mautrlty, rushed birds to market as soon as they reached two pounds, and thereby not only saved further feeding but got a better price than later prevailed. The Cotton Hatchery gives ten free chicks with all orders received before mid-February, and prices are $2 a hundred lower than last year's. Ing his boys and girls to know how to farm. At. Win. C. Boehn's. The Aetna Llf e 320-acre farm formerly operated by the Bentleys, southwest of Tltorika, but In the hands of Wm. C. Boehn last year, has been extensively Improved. A new house nnd a new barn have been built; the big corn crib has been repaired; 1,200 rods of fencing has been strung; and nine car loads (12,500) tile have been bought. All of the tile has been laid except one carload. The house Is 22x20, two story and has a half basement. The barn is 38x52, with concrete basement, on which are set 12-ft. posts\ The posts up to the first break in the roof are 24 feet high, and the height from basement- wall to gable Is 36 feet, A concrete foundation and floor were built under the corn crib, Jolmnnson & Sons, Algona, being contractors. The Boehns are. among the hardworking farmers of the Tltonka neighborhood. With' all the extra work and everything torn up It was hard this year to estimate crops, but Mr. Boehn was satisfied. He saved 101 pigs from 15 litters. F. F. Barker, former county agent, Is general superintendent of farm operations for the Aetna' people In this section, and he has had extensive buildingTand repairing done on the company's many farms. At the Wm. Spears'. We called on the William Spears, just south of Titonka, around New Year's time, and found Mr. Spear fairly well satisfied with his last Button have lived In. Algona tw6 years. They live on south Minnesota street, a -little way from this farm editor's home. They occupy the J. B. Worden property, Mr. Worden and Mrs. Dutton being brother and sister. 'Alfred L. Studer, southwest of Wesley, who, has built up a good pure-bred hog' business, Is keeping 20 sows for spring farrow, which compares with 14 sows farrowed last spring. From the M sows he saved 100 pigs, and from five September litters saved 40 more pigs. All pigs are vaccinated at about 50 pounds weight. Mr. Studer was putting a glass cloth front In the windows of his Individual farrowing houses when we called a rrionth ago, and he had hauled the husks left at corn-shelling to make a. bed for the house. Mr. Studer said the demand for his hogs has been good, but he would like to see prices a little high- r. ,, From John T. McGuire, Algona road contractor, at Christmas time we learned how to keep a Christmas tree from • shedding its greenery. He had a kind of stand which supported the tree, and there was a cup in the stand which held -water and In which the base of the tree .sat. Mr. McGuire said that ns long as the cup was kept filled with water the pine needles would not fall off and litter up the floor. Perhaps this was already, krtown to some of our readers, but was new to us. Next year w.e shall try this; in fact we shall have to use an argument like this to get permission from the housekeeper to have a tree, for she has about set a foot down against the litter of pine needles In the house during next winter's holiday week. PAGE ELEVEN year's work. October he sold 30 Farmers 9 Directory ahoats out of spring litters, getting $8.90 cwt. and he sold 30 more late In November at $7.60. Both lots averaged 240 pounds at eight months. Mr. Spear's hog-raising last year; Included 140 spring pigs saved from 20 litters and 29 fall pigs saved from four of the same sows In fall litters. H e picked 2,000 bushels of corn from 43 acres and hogged down six acres. Forty-five acres of oats threshed out 2,510 bushels by measure, or an average of more than 55 bushels of heavy oats. This 160-acre farm is owned by Ed Rike. Mr. Spear has rented it four years, and will have it again this season. Mrs. Spear. Is Alice, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Harms, a half miler west of the German Valley store. She is an expert poultry- raiser, and has some 500 White Leghorn hens, of which about 400 are pullets which started to lay BOTSFORD LUMBER COMPANY. BABY CHICKS On all orders for baby chicks placed before February 1 a 10% discount will be allowed. Also an additional 15% off on all February hatched chicks, off on all chicks hatched by March 20 and 5% off for the balance of March. It will pay you more than ever to get a good laying strain this year, and we have ' spared nothing to make this possible. HAMILTON LEGHORN FARM AND HATCHERY One mile west and one mile south of Bancroft, Iowa December 20. The three boys: Robert, six; Wilbur, two. couple have eight; James, • Soil Improvement Here. We recently had a talk with P. O. Kreger, who farms his own land west of Tltonka, and he told of the care taken to prepare the ground last spring for his oats crop. The land hod been in red clover and Grove. Saturday Mrs. Ralph Fandel, ley! y°ur winter's and save the BEST of COAL and lowest possl, 'margin, Coal • Prices. *+> f, *«mwo N Whlttemore, received word that a cousin, Arnold Schumacher, eon of Mr, and Mra. John Schumacher, of Bancroft, was seriously Injured about the head when a piece of wood struck him while he was sawing wood at the Albert Schiltz farm. Herman Bieratedt, north of town, had. hie car slightly damaged recently. While passing another car he drove top close to the edge of the grade and skidded In a dicth. Fenders and running board were damaged on one Bide of his car. The death of Mr. Bowers, father of Mrs. Bertha Bowers-Skow, formerly of Whlttemore, now of Emmetsburg, occurred last Wednesday at his home in Mt. Horeb, Wis. The funeral took place last Friday afternoon at Mt. Horeb. Herman Behnke, one of the star players on the poys' basketball team is ynabje to play because of a epralned wrist, A week before Christmas Herman sprained his an- I We, and at one of the late games he timothy three years, then in corn two years. Last spring he plowed the land with a two-row corn plow, then went over It with a disk, then seeded the oats and disked again, then dragged the entire field. 'As a result, from 25 acres he secured a yield of 80 bushels to the acre by weight. This method of Mr. Krueger is likely to be of Interest to farmers this season, for it sounds like good treatment of land In a dry year, and judging from the little preclpatlon we have had this winter so far, we may be in for another dry season. Mr, Kreuger grew BO bushels of corn to the acre on 28 acres. He saved 52 spring pigs from eight litters, and 20 more pigs from two of the same sows In fall Utters. He has a straw shed, warm and dry, for his hog-a. The shed has an opening on the south but has thick straw' walls on the other sides. Mr. Kreuger showed us that the hogs had rooted in ths shed and made a hollow place, which could have been prevented by ringing the hogs.i Mr. Kreuger sold 23 spring pigs October 18 at $9 cwt.* These were farrowed March 7-14 and averaged 222 pounds at a week more than seven months. Eleven more, were sold December is, averaging 275 pounds, for which $7,35 cwt was received. Tho Kreugers are hard workers and careful planners, and they de- sarve to succeed. Meets a Jokester. One cold day a month or so ago FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Warren Stlckel is the new dairyman at Titonka, having taken over the business formerly operated by A. H. Himes. He is located, on the same land, just southeast of town. He has twelve cows and all the milk-cooling, bottling, .and other machinery that goes with the dairy business. He formerly operated a dairy near Fort Bodge; and belong' ed to the Legion post there. The family incldes three boys: Richard, 111:' Russell, eight; and--Virgil, four. Mrs. E. E. Sohwletert, who farms with her son Erwhi just east of Burt, said, when we called early in December, that she had had better success at. growing . hogs last year than ever before. Out of 80 pigs farrowed In 11 litters, 80 had been raised to seven months. Twenty acres of corn was hogged down, and il|200 bushels were husked from the rest of the field. One thousand bushels of oats were threshed from 30 acres, Z. O. Gibson, northwest of Wesley, was, butchering, and his son and his son's wife were helping,^ when we called early In January. He said that 40 acres of corn averaged 60< bushels, and ten spring litters saved 70 pigs. Thirty acres of oats averaged 40 bushels. That is pretty good farming for a youngster like Z. G. The first time we met him, while the boys were still- at home, helping him farm a larger acreage a little way west, he had 200 or 300 acres of corn. He bought the «0- acre farm where he now resides and says he is satisfied with results, except that prices , of crops and stock are- too low. For a couple of-years;. Ira Dutton hns operated the 160-acre home farm in Cresco township owned by his father, L, R. Dutton, but on March 1 he will move to the 80-acre farm next west, to be vacated by Harm Helmers, and the L. R. buttons will move back from Algona to the old home. Ira will then farm with his father and th? two will operate both farms. Mr, and Mrs. Walter Kranse Poultry Farm has doubled hatching capacity, added Tancrerf strain W. Leghorn flock, lowered prices.

TO THE FARMERS OF KOSSUTH COUNTY: — You as well as the rest of us have heard a lot about "Farm Relief" for quite some time but as yet we fail to see where we have received much relief. In view •of this fact the BOTSFORD LUMBER COMPANY has decided to begin some Farm ^Relief right now throughout the territory in which they do business. This relief is coming to you in the form of HOG TONIC, "BOTSFORD'S FARM RELIEF HOG TONIC," and at a price that every farmer raising hogs can ' afford to pay. We are convinced that this tonic will do your hogs more good than a lot of tonics for which you have paid from three to five times as much. We will sell this Farm Relief Hog Tonic direct from our yard here at Algona for |2.00 per 100 pound sack, and to convince you that this is not a strictly sales . campaign, and that this tonic is all that we claim for it, we have limited the sale of from 1 to 2 sacks per customer until the customer has given it a good trial and is convinced that he wants more of it. Some will ask—well what is the idea, if the tonic is so good, why do you sell it at such a low price? The answer is simply this. Thousands of dollars are spent each year right in this territory for hog tonics—if we can save the farmers a good share of that money, and that is just what we are going to do, they will have more money with which to make improvements and buy more lumber, shingles, fence, posts, etc., and we will get our share of that business. The farmer will not only save money on hog tonics but his hogs will do 'better on BOTSFORD'S FARM RELIEF HOG TONIC and bring him more money, so you see we are not only helping the farmer but ourselves as well. We are still old fashioned enough to believe that if you help the other fellow, he will in turn help you hence our efforts to furnish BOTSFORD'S FARM RELIEF HOG TONIC. A number of farmers with whom we have talked this over are anxious to give the tonic a trial, some to the extent of a number of sacks, but as stated in this letter, we positively refuse to sell more than two sacks to a customer until he has given it a thorough trial. This we feel you will agree is a fair proposition. Come in and talk it over—our yard is becoming larger and better headquarters for farmers each year. We are going to do all we can to make it a place where the farmer will feel at home, and that he can get anything in our line for his needs at any time he needs it, and at a price that is reasonable.
