There was ;in early "sell-up" of all useful beasts. 'However, some poor and unfinished animals did not even draw a bid, there being an over-supply on the market. Cattle and sheep were the only offerings mentioned, though we are told Ireland is the home of Paddy's Pig. Dairy cows were quoted, and there was<a large sale. Prices are given in another place in the paper as follows: Store cattle, 32 to 48 shillings cwt.; fat cattle, 22 to 51 shillings cwt.; springers, by the head, eight to 30 pounds (money: one pound equals $4. : 8fl).; milch cows, by the head, nine to 25 pounds; fat sheep, by the head '30 to 7'5 shillings', fat lambs, by the head, 28 to 72 shillings. These prices are for the markets of Dublin, Belfast, Carlow, Porta- -•'lown, Moneymort'.'and Ballymoney. There wc'ye four advertisements on. the. front'coyer-of this national publication, but DO full or half-page advertisements-anywhere in it.

Texas Emigrant Returns. Fred L. Hoppe will this year have the John Seaman 9'n-acre farm on the paving east of Algona where the Benteles have been operating: The Benteles will go to the Kutschara farm, east of Sexton. Mr. Hoppe has heen living In Texas, where he raised <I2 acres of onions last season, marketing- an average of 220 bushels to the acre, for which he received $1.10 a bushel. He harvested and marketed the Texas crop in April, then came to Algona, and had some onions during our growing season on the farm owned by his mother, the late Mrs. E. H. Hoppe, south of Algbna. These, however, did not do well because of the drouth. Mr. and Mrs. Hoppe now live temporarily on the farm in Plum Creek township, where W. A. Bleich farmed for several years. Mr. Bleich has moved to the farm owned by his mother, Mrs. Anna Drone. Mr, Hoppe is accumulating stock and machinery preparatory to moving onto the Seaman farm when the Benteles move to the new home. He had, at the time of our call a 20— HEAD OF PIGS— 80 One 2-; to MACHINERY, ETC, ock Island cult iv»tor, nearly new; m planter; single-row cultiva- 4 ' sec - dr »S5 » fi w hay rake; Deering Deerjng cream separator; art * cles top UU ' , or gee your banker.

The cows are of different breeds, Mr. Hoppe apparently having picked out one of each kind, as is often done by farmers starting up. Aloyslus Blscheid, brother of Henry Eisoheid, who had been working on a farm for several years, has rented the farm which Mr. Hopp e is occupying. Mr. Hoppe mentioned that some 25 years ago he farmed In Plum Creek, on what is now the Anna Drone farm, Arthur Look's Corn. We have been reading about seed corn shown at various shows by one Arthur L. Look, thinking he was a member of the Look family which formerly operated east of Algona. Instead we find that he is a mail man at Lu Verne,, and his farm is only 12 acres in extent. Mr. Look has been the carrier on Route Oi 30 years. He has a fine concrete basement under his home, and in it there are two stoves as well as a furnace. The stoves can be used before the furnace is lighted in the fall, thereby drying the corn. The basement has' 350 bushels of B eed corn, all racked and dried. Mr Look showed us four ears of corn that at different shows $40 in cash prizes in 1929 a number ot his gilts to the neighbors for breeding purposes. He raised 05 pigs from six litters last year, anil Ceel.s rather well pleased with results. Mr'. AVillmert sa id that live oC the litters were out of tried sows. Ho is increasing his breeding operations this year, and has kept 21 sows* for .spring farrow. The farm west of Bancroft recently bought by W. H. Godden, of Algona, is 'to be operated by the man who has rented it for several years. His name is William Beadle, and he has a 50-50 stock share lease. The farm" consists of 120 acres. Twenty acres will be seeded to alfalfa; 40 acres to red and sweet clover. 'Nineteen cattle, 21 brood sows, ana 23 fattening hogs are the initial stock on the farm, and it is planned to buy 30 ewes. The Kossuth County Hatchery, operated here by the Spencer Chick Hatchery, 'is again open for business; with Mrs. Dewey Snyder in charge, as heretofore. This is the hatchery's third season in the same location across the hall from the Algona Flour and Feed offiqe. Two weeks, ago, on the day Mrs. Snyder arrived, poultry men who supply eggs began to carry in case after case of eggs to be set in the huge incubator. The first hatch will come off about'March 1. "When we came to the Frank Capesius home in Irvington township on January 26, Mr. and Mrs. Capesius had just been hearing the radio station at Yankton, s. D., dedicate a. song to them in honor of their •2Hst wedding anniversary. The song was "Springtime in the Rockies." Someone had told the radio station that the day was the Capesius anniversary, and the station surprised them with the broadcast. Mr. and Mrs. Capesius were married at St. Joe by Father Rummley, and the bride's maiden name was Katherine Reding. They have three girls: Mildred, ID; Evelyn, 11; and Lrene, 13; also a son, Edmund, 16. The Capesius farm of 160 acres is one of the best in Kossuth. it has an all- new set of buildings of modern design. We visited H. Van Steenberg, north of Burt, for the first time a couple of weeks ago. He .has lived three years on the P. E; Hoak farm on the east side of the paving; farm- |ng 184 acres. Formerly he operated 180 acreg on the west side .of the concrete, now owned by his brother, A. M. Van Steenberg. ' Mr, Van Steenberg was cleaning out the hog house, making everything spick and span and well bedded. He saved 60 pigs last year from nine litters, FOR SAI^E: CHOICE White Leghorn Cock- erals, cheap, in order to dispose of at once.
