In ono day last week we found four fnrmera who voluntarily said they wore getting ahead In spite of those hard times, when so many claim losses. Ono farmer, however, wns grouching: "Why," ho smld, "we are so dog-coned poor wo have to shoot crows for moat, and we haven't spent a cent for anything hut debts all winter!" Then came a gleam in his eye a.H he looked sidewlso out of bushy eyebrows, and he added, "But I Just paid that bank receiver $2,900 and he cnn't be writing letters to me any moro." Another farmer, who we knew, had made heroic sacrifices, sold down to a smaller scale of livestock nn;l crop production, and, as he put It, "Just kept barely enough equipment to keep farming." But he remarked that he would get ahoad .this year, now that he was free of killing Interest payments he had been up Against. Then when we got to George At- tlg's, north of Wesley, we found him feeling good, the first time he had admitted It in years. He said the two crop years of 1029 and 1930 had given him enough to pay $3,000 on the farm, which he bought at the beginning of that period. George started as a hired hand on the Hanna ranch, and continued to work for the Hannas three years after marriage. He then rented Hanna land and farmed it 17 years for himself. This was 160 acres, all but two years, when he rented an additional 80. Mr. Attlg said he and the good wife had earned and saved a little money every year. Two years ago they bought the 160 acres they now operate, paying $12,000 cash and giving an $8,000 mortgage. Now, In I the first two years of farming the factors on sweot cream. The regular cash cream price paid here will, however, be printed. AVe hope that any farmer reader who wants us to continue printing the Algona market will write a note and say he wants It, so wo can show letters to the publisher to prove that the feature Is worth the expense and the space required. We also want suggestions as to how we can make the market more valuable. >»«««»»»««»««»»»«»»»»«»*»»*»«»»•««» losco Ajax Oat Huller ier that you may get the most feeding value lyour own farm-raised grain, we have mounted a Ajax Oat Huller on a truck, to go directly to pro and serve your needs. hone 71, Burt, at my expense and hook your oat for the day you want me to come.

The Attigs do not carry an excessive amount of livestock, and do not specialize in crops that have been particularly profitable, nor do they account for their success by lucky breaks, but they work hard and keep at it. Last year 80 acres of corn averaged GO bushels, and on 40 acres of oats a yield of 42 bushels was secured. From 11 mid-April litters 80 pigs were raised. Fifty-five of the hogs were sold In mid-November at seven mortths averaging 255 pounds, and the price was $7.80. Fourteen sows are -being kept this year. Mrs. Attig was Anna Stoffacher before marriage. The couple have four^boys and a girl. The new farm has 'a good set of buildings, house, barn, silo, etc., and judging from the corn crop last year the land must be the kind a good farmer likes to have. With the Hauptleys. Forty-one years ago a young cou- .ple, Mr. and Mrs. Nick Hauptley, started farming in the new country northeast of AVesley. The land they had, no doubt, was raw, and perhaps needed draining. We may suppose that there were few farm buildings, and that the young folks had to start from scratch to carve out for themselves a comfortable fortune. Today there is a fine set of buildings, including a big, comfortable farm home which has sent out into the world three daughters and six sons, of whom six are married and have homes of their own In nearby neighborhoods. Now Mr. and Mrs. Hauptley have retired to Wesley, and the youngest son, Elmer, having taken to himself a wife, starts as the second operator of that pioneer farm. His bride was Mary, daughter of John Eden, who has also lived near Wesley more than 40 years. Up to seven years ago Mary's parents farmed near Woden. Then they retired and moved to Wesley, where, soon after, the mother departed this life and Mary became housekeeper for her father. Mary is a fine, wholeeoine young woman, and Mother Hauptley must have been proud to see such an excellent young homemaker take the old home as Elmer's bride. Mary's brother Nick now operates the old Eden farm near Woden. Another brother, William, farms near the same' village but formerly formed north of Wesley, A sister, like Carlisle Seed Wins. The A. C. Carlisle & Son seed corn advertisement is over In the want- ad section again. Mr. Carlisle Bald some of his seed sent to Ames for testing was reported (early gathered) at !)9 per cent and late gathered at 95 per cent. Mr. Porter, the man In charge at Ames, said the early gathered seed was as good as ear-tested seed. Carlisle's Kossuth Reliance was the highest yielding corn In county test plots in 1930, outylelding Golden King in all three districts of the county. In the corn Judging at Ames this year, which was based on new rules that gave more points to maturity, soundness weight, and freedom from starchl- ness, the Carlisle corn took first an< sweepstakes on ten ears in the professional class for northern Iowa. A daughter Grace took first in the junior class. Mr. Carlisle recommends Golden Dent to stand dry weather. It is a pleasure to see how the Carlisle seed has moved ahead Mr. Carlisle was at first a .bit cau tious about testing his corn along side more famous brands, but nov he is 'beginning to agree with us when we tell him the old story abou "the bigger the adversary the hard er he falls.' FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Wesley has a fine new tile build Ing to house county road worktn; machinery, and Wilber Fisher, for merly Titonka, assisted by Pearl Haynes, work on the highways ou of Wesley. While we were talking with Nor man Crawford, who hauls cream fo the Algona creamery, he said, , "W will come out well on movings thi year, for several of'our patrons wh moved out of the territory will con tinue to sell ue cream and the new comers will join us." Roy Taylor Is the new man on th farm north of Wesley vacated b Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kerrins. He a son of John Taylor, of Robert III., who has owned the farm for th as 'bought boars from Mr. Winter or two or three years, and has uilt up one of the best-looking Pond China herds In the county. Mr. Vlnter still had a few bred sows and all boars for sale. He has lived ear Lakota since 1884, and is one Ramsey township's most sub- tantlal farmers. His sons Russell nd Raymond now look after the arm, and their father spends all his imc on the hogs. Math P., son of Peter Belsch, orthwest of Whittemore, Is the ow operator of a farm midway be- woen Titonka and Wesley which ad been without a resident tenant or several years. He Is a jolly oung bachelor, who for the present being looked after by his sister \nna, housekeeper. The house has eon painted find papered, and there as been a little carpentering, with moro fixing up to be done later on utsido buildings. Peter Beisch and is brother-in-law, Peter Hilbert, md been owner of the farm 12 or 3 years, but now Mr. Belsch is sole wner. Up to this yenr Mr. Hilbert iad farmed the land in connection vlth a farm he operates a little vay west. Young Mat starts with 2 sows and five cows, and he also ins some fall calves. Mllford Elbert, a cousin, was on hand to help him get settled. Milford is a son of C. W. Elbert, north of Whittemore. When we called on Tony Sorenson at Irvlngton one day late in March le wns already at work making ilossoms for poppy day May 30, vhcn hundreds will be sold all over :he country. Tony learned to make the blooms when he was In a veterans' hospital a couple of years ago. His quota is 11,000 blooms, and he expects to make 1,000 a week. From Tanuary 10 he had completed 5,500. Tony's hands are still pretty slow from rheumatism, but he fashions a bloom out of cut-to-size paper and cut-to-length wire stems In reasonably 'short order. From a corner of the couch his youngest baby, Louis Marie, watches gravely. A brother, Chris Sorenson, carpenter at Fargo, N. D., had just gone home, after a short visit, and had left a fine Inlaid tea tray as a memento': The tray, which the brother made himself from dark and white wood, is a fine piece of workmanship. He also turned out a pair of fine candlesticks In his shop and brought them with»him as an additional gift'. The Sorensons, who had been residing a Titonka for several years, are now domiciled in the Blythe cottage a Irvington, which Is near the home of Mrs. Sorenson's parents, the But- terfields. Mr. and Mrs. William Fritz, hew- lyweds, are new operators on the Albert Fritz farm, north of Wesley. William is a son of the farm owners who have bought a home at Titonka and moved there. Dad and Mother Fritz came to the neighborhood to rent the farm next south, where Eppo Gremmer now ' operates. They bought the farm, which is part of acres, of which 200 are rented to George Dlrksen, next east of the home farm, and 200 acres to the son William, who now starts farming for himself. William will pay cash rent, and he starts with 17 sows due to farrow next week. That will be another case of a young farmer getting an early start towards^ hitting the early market next September »t a time when prices are highest eight years out of ten. He has 19 cattle, of which seven are milk cows. William bought the stock and machin^ cry from his father, and Will carry on his operations on about the same scale as the farm has been worked. His bride, who was Wylma Gerdes before marriage, is a daughter of, Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Gerdes, substantial farmers In the neighborhood, and she is a capable young woman, well able to make a good helpmate for nn active and progressive young farmer such as William appears to be. * Aid Plans Supper.

New Markets Service. We have had a good many requests from farmers that we print I the markets at Algona on a given day each week, so prices in surrounding towns can be compared with Algona's for the same period. The McEnroe brother? have made o livestock market at Algona which is causing considerable interest Sroughout the county. We have been told that they pay up to Chicago prices, or even more, on certain day*. Whether this Is true or not. we intend printing the prices at Algona as ot Tuesday each week Cream, poultry, grain, and hides will afcofce priced, and we lutend to strengthen our market feature as rapidly as we learn how-to do it We teve been asked to print the cream market as well, but *** sweet cream price the couple have' two children, Roy Jr., 8, and Norma, six. R. C. Bauer, Wesley, recently told us he had sold three new milking machines and nine cream separators in the first month since the McCor- mick-Deerlng machinery company began • handling these Items. Mr. Bauer, who sells one of the largest volumes of farm machinery in this part o'f the state, said he sold six carloads of farm v machinery last year, and had so far this year sold more than In the same- period last year. When we called at the Lease & Lease hardware store at Wesley one day last week, L. L. Lease, who was temporarily In sole charge, was minding his youngest son Loren, 16 months old, who, dressed ln> overalls, was parading around the store, getting behind counters, and look- Ing Into whatever needed investigating. Judging from the number of times L. L. had to hunt up the youngster, find out what he was doing, and steer him away from things he was not to Interfere with, it Is probable that he has a good understanding of what the mothers at home mean when they say the don't see where the time goes to. The L. L. Leases have one other boy, Sterling, 4% years, and the A. M. Leases have a son Burrell, 2% years. Fred Martin, who has given a lifetime to the development 'of race horses, came through 1930 with a satisfactory record. The mare Sia Man, raised and/developed by Mr. Martin, started eight times in 1930, and won all her races, getting a record of 2.-08&. Mr. Martin conducts a public training stable, developing and training colts on the Algona track. There are good stables there, besides all tlje other factors that make for successful training. Some of the more spectacular colts and horses trained by Mr. Martin include Alpha W. 2:06%; Bob Fitz- slmmons, 2:06%; Brownie, 2:14; Red Bon, 2:07%; Doctor Rush, 2:14; Don Direct, 2:13%; and Sis Man.
