We 'have the pleasure to acknowledge a gift of *i fruit Jar full of canned beef put up by a woman who east, and we met their , healthy twins, Elmer nnd Melvin, who will be two years old May 12, and'a finer Stephen TJaden, west of Titonka, who farm.s 205 acres which he bought from his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Tjaden, hnd.lBO day- old pigs saved from 23 litters when wo came along one day last week. He raised 135 from 25 litters last year, and his first 75 hogs hit the market at an average of 200 pounds at seven months and were sold at If 8.80. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Mulligan, Bancroft, have moved to the former Dodon farm, northeast of Titonka, where George U Fox operated last year. We happened along the other clay .Hist as Mrs. Mulligan had taken a batch of cookies from the oven, so we tasted pastry that Just melted In the mouth. Mr. Mulligan has been troubled some recently with rheumatism, and we hope he will improve before .spring work begins, 140 acres she owne for the last five years, or since the death of her husband. A young man who worked for her till this spring recently married Flora, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frnnzen, who farm in the same neighborhood, and has started out for himself. The new hand on the Ubben farm Is Jesse Harms. Mrs. tlbben has an attractive home, well kept up. John nhipontr'op Sr., Titonka, who, if we remember rightly, already owned nine farms, has bought another, the former John Swalvo 1'10-n.cre property north of town, and his son George has moved onto it. George will, however, continue to operate 120 acres whore he has boon farming, and besides will farm 40 acres of the farm Alrek Buckholtz has been operating. This makes a good-sized bit of land to handle, hut George has been getting into a position where he had to find work for a growing family of boys Mr. Buckholtz farms 120 acres. All of this land Is included in the John Ulppentrop holdings. Tom Loats, son-in-law of Mrs. John Rippentrop, las moved from Titonka to the iou«o vacated by the George Rip- , inntrops.

Rosalyn Lappe and Mrs. Josephine Becker visited friends at Mason City Thursday. Mrs. Becker has slices of beef in flour, rolls and browns them in the frying pan, then rolls the slice into a i-oll that will just fit the Jar, or perhaps it may take several rolls. After the Jar is sealed the meat is processed In a big cooker. Other parts of the beef are cut into little chunks which when the can is opened are found as tasty as real game. We were forbidden to mention the woman's name,'but we can say it is no wonder that her husband always has a well-fed, satisfied look, with such a housekeeper. At another house we are not permitted to name the woman said, "Here is a little souvenir of the butchering season." And when we unwrapped the package at home we found a big roll of cured sausage! Wonderful breakfast food, that sausage. (P.

At Melvin J. Reiken's, north of Algona, we recently met Donald Eugene, born October 12, and now a fine, healthy young man. Mrs. Reiken was Dorothy Cook before her marriage, and is a daughter of Ray Cook, who formerly farmed a little way south. Mr. Reiken said, "This young fellow is the only one to carry on the Reiken name so far." Melvin is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Reiken, who farm their -own 160 acres a few miles north on the Burt mail route, and Melvin got his farming Ideas from Dad. He said, "I play 50-50 on hogs and cattle against corn. If the livestock market is right I want to 'have stock to sell, and if the corn market is right I want to have*corn to sell; accordingly we hold a balance and try to have some cosh corn and feed the rest for cash livestock. Last year, from 68 acres of corn an average of 45 bushels an acre was husked, and from 47 acres of oats 45 bushels an acre were threshed. The farm is rented from Fred Willrett, who farms across the road on other land he owns. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. A new man on a farm where Marcus Holm lived last year, northeast of Titonka, is William Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Miller have a girl of two and a boy of eight. Henry, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Rademaker, east of German Valley, told us that up to the time of bur call early last week 54 week-old pigs had been saved from only eight litters. It certainly pays as a rule to have early pigs and make them grow to a good weight quickly for the edrly market. We see many more sheep in the worked for Mr. Cebulka for_ years and came here from several Mason City with him. Mrs. Smith is housekeeper. Persons interested in seed- corn growing- and selection should keep Mr. Cebulka in mind when corn shows are arranged. Just to prove that women can manage hog-raising as -well as men, we mention that Mre. Everett Ubben, a little way northeast of Titonka, had 103 week-old pigs saved from 13 litters when we visited the place one day last week. She raised 117 spring pigs last year from 17 or 18 litters, and fed the best 68 out to weigh a 220-lb. average at seven months, when they were sold at $8.90. Mrs. Ubben has farmed the 'PP.
