Matt Lamuth, of Swift & Co., Algona, thinks that with egg prices so low it might be a good plan to "aoi" more, thereby getting the 1 " surplus off the market and at the same time providing chicks for the market. Discouraged, many poultrymen may neglect the business this season, thereby raising fewer chickens for the market and causing a better price next winter for those who have poultry for sale. Chicks can be produced cheaper now than ever before. It is a good policy to do what the crowd is not doing, so maybe Mr. Lamuth's advice will rove sound. We hear considerable favorable omment about the Algona hog narket. The McEnroe brothers of- cn pay a price ns high as Is offered t the Mason City packing plant, 'here are several other buyers, fogs are coming In from as far as 0 miles around. The McEnroe rothers work hard, deal fairly, are ell established with the central uycrs, and by helping to make a ntlsfactory market for farmers ereabouts are doing a good thing or the community. The Hamilton Leghorn Farm and Tatchery has installed a large pow- r-clriven feed, mixer in the granary. his machine Is part of the equlp- nent for grinding and mixing feeds, nrticularly chick feeds. There Is a ligh-sneed grinder, also a low-speed, vlth blowers to carry the gra'ln to Ins. A huller is to be installed oon. The granary, which was de- icribed recently in these columns, Is me of the most completely equipped n the state. We recently said a dozen sets of he B. F. Reed county history had been offered to us in answer to an advertisement. We have also received an offer of a copy of the old Springfield history of Kossuth, Winnebago, and Hancock counties, pub- ished about 1885. This book speaks of some oldtimers not mentioned in the Reed history and is a valuable work. Jerry Ukena, Lakota, manager of the farmers' livestock shipping association, has considerably increased the business by using trucks. He estimated that shipments had averaged two carloads a week since September, or about 40 cars up to two weeks ago. Of this only about eight cars went to Mason City, the others to Albert Lea and Eagle Grove. Adam Reefer, Ledyard, is back in the beet-raising game, having contracted to raise 12 acres on a farm he operates southwest of 'that town. Mr. Reefer grew sugar beets ten years, then dropped out, Mr. and Mrs. Reefer, who have lived at Lakota and Ledyard ever since they came from Germany, have a -family, of boys and girls. We notice, in the society columns of this p^per, -mention of H. J. 'Bode Tiavlng spoken at a 'meeting of the Plum Creek township Farm Bureau at Harvey Johnson's February 20. The item dubbed Mr. Bode president of the township Farm Bureau, which was an error. A. R. Gardner is township president this year. When we took a renewal for one of the papers we handle a subscriber said longingly, "I would gladly give $10 a year more if I could find a standpat paper as good. 1 ' We told him that we would be selling it if there were such a paper. There are Harriet Cookinham PAGE ELEVEN cent a dozen increase In price as a result of the campaign. Let's eat more eggs! Bernard Phelps, of C. L. Phelps & Son, Portland township, was in the office Saturday, and reported thfit hatching egg and baby chick orders for his Rhode island Reds were starting off well. The Phelps flock Is one of the best in the county. Mrs. .1. ,1. Patterson, west of Led- ynrd,' was seriously sick when we called Saturday, and Mr. Patterson said she had bronchial pneumonia. The R. V. Thackerays have moved to a farm southeast of Armstrong from Grant township, where they ha<l farmed for several years.
