Mis connection with the R. & T. enables him to get a knowledge of all sections of Iowa such as even few residents have. Mr. Russell said: . . "With the market Information we are spreading now, I expect that In another year farmers will more generally understand market reports." We must have market Information written by someone who knows exactly what he Is talking about, not just a telegraph clerk's report; we must also have Impartial reports on all markets, not just a market that favors the newspaper's home 'town. Good market news Is of great importance to farmers. Canaries at Honey's. M. Li. Roney, enst of Irvington, was at home alone one day last week, when we called. We visited With him a few minutes In the comfortable living, room and got acquainted with the two canaries. A big bay window Is filled with extra large foliage plants, and among them, on opposite sides of the windows, are the cages for the canarle«. The birds live a kind of a com- panlonate marriage. Just now they are In the same cage and Mr. Honey thinks they plan to raise a family. A nest has been provided. Later the male bird will move back to his own bachelor quarters, and resume his songs. Out in the yard the son, Kenneth had come up with a tractor, hauling a blgr self-feeder from the hog lot The Roriey farm is one of the gooc farms of the county, managed eo well that there never seems to be any hurry or 'bustle. The work gets done, the neighborly duties get look ed after, and the family seems to have some of the old-fashioned lets ure for getting acquainted with each other and the neighbors which usec to be associated with farming. nan attended to the stripping.

The George AVagners, late o Bode, have moved to the Sampl farm, east of Irvington. These ar young folks, two years married have good farm background, and ar likely to make permanent resident of the community. At the Cerro Gordo hotel, Maso City, one morning last week we me Marc Moore, who formerly operate the J. M. Moore farm in Union township. He now lives at Mason City, and said he was doing well with an aluminum-ware agency. John Von Bank, on one of Archie Hutchison's farms, south of Irvington, raised 220 pigs last year from 36 litters, or close to six to the litter In this big drove. He is keeping about 35 sows this year. John Keene two or three units machine while the of a hired ooked, renewed noved on. \Ve had never managed to meet '"'rank Dltsworth, northcnst of Irvr "Klein, till one day last week. He is not one lo say much aboul his fartn- ng, but we did gel him to talk hogs hit. Last year was a good season vlth him. From seven mid-April liters 48 pigs were raised, and of heso the 2!) bpsl were sold Novcm- ier 1, at (i% months weighing 227 >numls average, for $8.HO. In the all 45 more were raised from only ive litters. These weighed 100 joumls average at five months, a ligh average number saved. Mr. Dltsworth kept 11 sows for this spring's farrow. From Frank we earned that the Ed Dltsworths have moved from Irvlngton to Portland ownship, where they have the E. L. 3ittmur farm, vacated by the An- lersons. Martin Becker, who farms the 190-acre Mrs. C. R. Lewis farm northeast of Irvington, told us recently that he was well satisfied A'ith a new two-row corn cultivator which he used last season to tend 80 acres of corn alone. Mrs. Becker showed us three large piles of wood which Martin had gotten out this winter. She said that the fine weather enabled him to get out enough wood for both this season and next winter. Big old willows were cut from the fence linq. All manure had been hauled, and Martin a week ago was ready to go into the fields and drag the corn stalks. He Intends to seed oats as soon a« the frost is all out, even If that Is extra early. The .Beckers have three boys and two girls, the youngest a blue-eyed, healthy 14-monlhs-old lass -who Is sure a prize-winner. We are up against a real problem at Irvington when it comes to showing increase of circulation on the one mail route. The Glen Beard, Whittemarch, and William Vessels homes were burned down, and this cut down the number of mail boxes by three. George Ferstl, Leonard Arndorfer, and Ambrose Lickteig occupy homes formerly served on the Irvlngton route but now get their mall at St. Benedict or Lu Verne. There la a vacant house next east of the John Schultz home, and a house and barn, such as they were, have been torn down next west of where Orlan Rutledge lives. To cap the climax, J. M. Patterson and his son-in-law, Russell Maxwell, now get their mall at Algona every morning when they bring milk to the creamery. All these losses on a route of some 70 boxes make Increase of circulation difficult for papers which had about nil the homes to start with. Guess we shall have lo start a colonlzallon boom or somelhlng down there. Last Thursday evening we rode via the C. & N. W. from Algona to Eagle Grove with P. M. Chrletcnson, Polled Hereford breeder at Lone Rock, and had a longer talk wjth him lhan we had ever managed lo have before. To catch him away from his work Is about the only way to get much of his time. He was en roule lo Clinton to join throe other catlle men and drive lo Forl Worth, Tex., to attend a 'big Polled Hereford show and sale. The Chrtn- tenson & Son herd now Includes 90 females. Three bulls were sold at a recent Des Molncs show, and more were to be sold at Fort Worth this week Tuesday. Much of the Chrls- tenson breeding stock is disposed of at national shows, after the cattle have competed In the ring against the country's best. In our travels about the stale we have found lhat breeders of good callle everywhere speak well of Ihe Christenson & Son Polled Herefords. At Eagle Grove Mr. Christenson went to a sleeper to get some rest before his long drive on Friday. We have just found out that Geo. L. Simons, who moved to the old Haggard farm, south of Irvington, a year ago, Is a son of Mrs. Jacob Simons, of St. Benedict, and his wife a daughter of C. N. Belsch, of Sexton. The couple began farming last year. From four spring llllers 29 pigs were saved, and these averaged 244 pounds at eight months and were eold at $8. This season the rrtimber of sows has been doubled, and one had farrowed 13 pigs before our call. The young fellows In the farming game are learning to hit the market early, with quick-finished, light-weight hogs. Some of the older fellows find It hard to get away from Ihe Idea of big, heavy, lard hogs, which are not so much In demand as In former years. The old Haggard farm Is now owned by Ernest Bormann. George and Ernest have graveled the driveway, and they have a sign up asking visitors to keep on the gravel. There Is now a good graded gravel road post the farm which connects with Algona, l-fumboldl, and Lu Verne, Sexlon roads. Of course Ihere Is a direct route .to the Galbraith elevator. Ono^of the good Kossuth sets of farm buildings has been built up on the John Reding farm, south of Irvlngton. The barn was built eight years ago and Is a modern etock barn, with lilter carriers. The outside boom is of tile. The poultry house, hog barn, machine shod are also tile, but the granary and the corn crib are of frame construction. The house Is large and all-modern, built four years ago.' Hot, cold, and soft water Is piped to all parts of the house under pressure. There Is central heat, and the beet of other conveniences. The Redlngs have had the farm 11 years, or ever since they were married. Mrs. Reding was Llz/.le Wagner, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Wagner, of St. Joe, and a sister of George Wagner, who has Just moved to the Sample farm, a lltlle way norlh. The couple have four boys and a girl. Last year John raised 100 spring pigs from 18 llllers, and 25 more from six fall lit- lers. He has kept 22 sows for this spring. We noticed a fine lot of horses, 22 of Ihem, mostly Belgian, exercising coltlshly in Ihe yard, also a gray slallion. Repairs Up-to Date PRICES REDUCED on better seed, racked early, dried and tested.

The son Walter, now 16, works on the farm southeast of Whittemore which they formerly had. The Heldt family includes four' girls and two boys. On the farm west of Irvington where M. G. Parsons lived last year Mr. and Mrs. Alvln Dillon are located this season. This is 240 acres that Tom Coleman had operated in connection .with other holdings. The Dillons had had the 300-acre Martin Thompson farm, north of Swea City, two years, and they farmed at Corwith before that. They have one boy and two girls. , Bernard Capesius, northeast of Irvlngton, recently told us of a trip he had made to Shenandoah with C. R. Mason, Economy hog powder salesman at Algona. They visited both the Henry Field and the Earl May broadcasting stations, also the hog powder manufacturing plant. At the Capealus home last Thursday three hogs were being butchered for home use, with Mrs. Capesius' father, William Arndorfer, of St. Benedict, assisting. The O. L. Millers, who have moved to the Jesse Bedell 400-acre farm, east of Irvlngton, came from a 360- acre farm couth of St. Benedict. They have a daughter, Betty May, eight years old, and an adopted son of 20. Mrs. Miller is Leona, one of the six Frye girls. Her parent* formerly farmed where W. F.
