CALL 548-W, OR THIS OFFICE Ifeats All Records For volume of sales this January has passed, every January in the history of Nevilles store. : ;\ , > We have three good reasons for this. Our stock is larger, quality is better, ami prices are lower.

With this volume of trade any shoe does not get to stay long. It keeps them coming and going.

PAGE N1NB W. J. PAYNE, Editor A Country Store. Mrs. Mary Fasbender, who operates (.he Kenoral store and postof- »co nt St. Henmllct, has built up a Rood business from small beginnings, and she deserveH the SUCCCSH «li<> lias attained by hard work, rai'ffiil planning, self-denial, and Kood mimiiKemont. For seven years f-he farmed with her husband on the land whoi-p Mr. and Mrs. J.oo Gou K e are now located. • TOleven yearn a«o Mrs. Faahender l'st her hushand, and with her four mnvetl to St. Benedict. Tn 192.-,, she opened a. beauty Parlor in the lmildin K where her store is now located, and in tlon carried a. smnll lino of Koods and did spwlng. Two years liH.er she liefjan handllnR Rroeerics. I lie next year she installed a. me- ehanlcal ice box and licRan handling Ice cream and soft drinks, and in the following year another electric refrigerator was added and a line of tresh meatM was put into it. Tn the meantime a gasoline filling station was opened In front of the store, and it has been operated three years. A hardware line has been installed in an adjoining building. The beauty parlor has been discontinued. addi- dry- convenlent as It Is possible to devise. The targets are mounted on a moveable carriage, which runs on a track. By turning a crank the target carriage Is returned rapidly to the shooter, the bullsoye card taken off for Inspection, and a fresh eard put In place, after which the crank rapidly returns the target carriage and target to position at the far end of the range, ready for more shooting. The target cards are held on the target carriage by spring clips. Accordingly' the change to fresh target can he made much quicker than a man could run to the target, make the change, and run back. Behind the targets is .a sheet-iron bullet catcher. This is a flat steel backstop slanting outward at the bottom, so that the bullets are dropped Into a narrow bullet box beneath the target. At the end of the room where the marksmen stand there Is a table on which guns and ammunition can be laid out. There Is also a magazine rack with riflemen's magazines, score cards, etc. A bullet measurer Is used to test score cards accurately to determine just what the shots were. Always the stock is increasing, and there is more and more work to be done as the merchandise business increases. A competing store closed, and Mrs. Fashcnder became postmistress. • She made room for the post- office in a corner of the store. Now St. Benedict has a well managed country store where all the usual lines are handled and customers get prompt and efficient attention. The mail is now handled over the Algona mail route No. 1. Barney CasIer, carrier, swings into St. Benedict at 10 to 11 o'clock each forenoon, bringing the mail sack and gathering up outgoing mail. Mrs. Fasbender for two years operated a cream buying station, and also bought eggs, as many as 40 cases of aggs a week. However, Increasing duties made it necessary to discontinue the cream station, though eggs are still taken. Mrs. Fasbender lost her only son in 1922, when he was kicked by a horse and died from the effects. Her three daughters are Irene, in the Fifth grade at school; Bertha, who | clerks In the store; and Agatha,who Is housekeeper. Mrs. Fasbender is a daughter o£ Mr. and Mrs. Gregory Studer, who live Just at the edge of St. Benedict, and she is a granddaughter of Amandus Studer, who came from Alsace-Loralne to Canada, thence to Freeort, 111., thence to Ackley,' thence to St. Benedict In 1883. Grandfather Studer died in 1905. Mrs. Fasbender's father has lived in the same township now for some 50 years. Mrs. Fasbender has shown unusual ability at finding things which required doing, and by adding to her business a number of related activities she has gradually built up a good business where others might have easily failed. The store is a good asset to the town of St. Benedict and a credit to its owner. . Shooting at 50 to 75 feet, the boys are able to place many consecutive bullets In an Inch circle. We were shown a target card against which Nick Altman had fired off-hand five consecutive bullets, placing all of them within an eighth of an inch of a pinpoint center. This shot was made June 9, 1930. Another target had four bullet holes within an eighth of an Inch, and one bullet hole within a quarter of an inch of a pinpoint center. This shot was made January 12 by Archie Sanford. The club has eight rifles, which cost altogether between $1,200 and $1,500, being finely bored and of unusual accuracy. , Advertising Sense. Our young daughter lost a leather mitten at one of the Algona bank corners one day last week. She advertised in the want section of this paper, and Harry Keith, 'Rock Island implement dealer, phoned that he had it. The writer advertised the same day for a set of the B. F. Reed history of the county, and had a two-volume set located the day the paper came out, buying It next morning. Polks who have not studied the question may fail to understand why Advance advertisements have/ a really uncanny pulling power. The Curtis Publishing company, Philadelphia, not long ago got out a 50- page book giving results of a study on how to choose a newspaper or magazine that gives best results for money spent in advertising. This book recognized the need for plenty of circulation, but also Inquired closely Into how circulation was got and held. If a paper is given free, or sold at cheap bargain prices, it goes largely to people who do not read it or who have no money with which to patronize advertisers; but if it is sold, and goes only to people who pay full price the subscribers are likely to be readers and to have money to spend for what is advertised. By carefully searching out readers In every neighborhood who want a good county seat newspaper and will buy it and pay for it regplarly, and by keeping on the subscription liet only folks who continue to be interested enough to pay the small subscription price each year, the Advance has attained one of the most widely read country newspapers in Iowa. *,.,*, Farmers see sales advertised In the Advance bring large buying crowds, even when little or no hand- billing Is done, while sales the same week in the same neighborhood, af* ter bills had throughout the surrounding towns, crowds with light FARM NEWS AND COMMKNT. F. D. Elliott, who has. farmed a Murtagh farm midway between L,ed- yard and Swea City nine years, has moved to a 180-acre farm north of Britt. The Elliotts will be missed in the Grant township neighborhood, where they were good neighbors. Dwight Graham and his family have moved to the farm northwest of Wesley, where Frank Hoff has operated for some years. The farm has been rented by Jerry Schutjer, Tltonka, and Dwiglir will work for him. Jerry will continue to live in Tltonka, and will drive to and from the farm. We notice, In the Iowa Journal of History and Politics, a long article giving a history of the state highway commission from its beginning to date, the author being Samuel C. E. Powers, of Kellogg, whom we remember as superintendent of schools at Ledyard In three years, 1920 to 1923 Inclusive. Mr. Powers has continued his studies, having obtained an M. A. degree at the state university of Iowa, where he is now a graduate assistant professor. We are getting acquainted with town folks again .this winter. Last week we met Mrs. Gus Baessler, Lu Verne, who is a dahlia raiser of renown. On one occasion ehe took a first prize on dahlias at the county fair which the Farm Department was trying for. Mrs. Baessler says another good dahlia grower is Grover Rentz, also Lu Verne, who has some unusually, large blooming varieties. We hops to see both these flower gardens next eummer. Henry Looft, who hae, since his marriage, two or three years ago, farmed southwest of Wesley, will m'ove March 1 to a farm owned by his father-in-law, Ole Johannaon, a mile west and a quarter mile south of the Seneca school. B. H. Potter year or two. Henry is a Bon 'of Bertha Looft, Wesley furniture dealer, and Is ono of the good young' farmers of the Wesley, neighborhood. We think Dad Johannson, who owns several farms up that way, Is lucky to get him for a renter. • One day last week we visited the ne\*Nnil cafe at Wesley and learned that the roprlotor is Maynard Nail, son of a Britt farmer who formerly advertised In the Advance, having for many years kept a fine herd of purebred Poland China hogs on his Boono township farm. Maynard is a bricklayer in summer. His wife is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus Elsonmnn, Britt, her parents also being farmers and land-owners north of that. town. The young folks have a nice clean place to eat, and apparently are getting their share of the business. E. Tt. Rising's Algona feed-grinding business seems to be growing as he develops new ways to serve customers. One of his recently installed machines Is a mixer that will mix a ton of feed at a. time. Mr. Rising now mixes a,balanced ration for customers who desire It, grinding grain from the farm and mixing it with meat scrap or any other protein concentrate which the customer may want. He also sells a protein concentrate especially prepared for mixing with home-grown ground feeds. "Dick" is a mighty pleasant gentleman to deal with, and his friends and customers are all 'boosters. C. V. Kerrlns, better known as "Chuck," who has been working at the Studer stock farm, near Wesley, for several years, has formed a partnership with his older brother John, and the two will farm a 320- acre farm which is being vacated by Bill Carmen, on the paving east of Wesley. John is a widower; Chuck a young bachelor. The two will take turns doing the cooking, we suppose. Their father, Charles Kerrine, farms a little way northwest, and Elizabeth, his daughter, is manager of the telephone switchboard at Wesley. If Dad Kerrins had not given us a friendly threat as to what he would do to us if we put his name into the paper we would mention him sometime. John Carlson, farming s northwest of'Wesley, grew more than 55 bushels of corn to the acre on 55 acres last season. His oats were also a good crop, but he could not remember the yield. He raised 72 spring pigs from nine litters. Mr. Carlson will round out 40 years in this country next May. He came from Lln- koping, Sweden, when he was a lad of 17. He bought the. 160-acre farm which he now operates in 1900, and has a fine farm home, where the family have prospered. We would not be surprised if Mr. Carlson should be looking for a chance to buy more land before long. ^Ir. and Mrs. Carlson have three boys and two girls. One of the girls is Mrs. Vincent Heifner, wife of the Hobarton buttermaker. The Heifners have two boys and a girl who are mighty popular with Grandpa and Grandma Carlson. Our visit last week was the first one in several years. plilliHIIilffiiilHIHItW ~| IT'S MUCH BETTER TO BUY 1 COTTON'S ACCREDITED CHICKS than to wish you had.
