W.J. PA YNE, Editor Story With a Moral. Sometime we expect to be permit- ters at home, Bertha, Esther, ted to print the story of a farmer Pauline also a sister married, who a few years ago wns so sure he Baking would lose his fnrm to the that he deckled to rob it as systematically ns he could while he «tlll had possession. He plowed up pn.sturo and planted all possible ground to corn. The next spring, won another -year of, grace, IIP gave the land a shot of fertilizer, and used legumes to get a quick green manure and to furnish in-between pasture. To get hog-raising out of the way nhend of a heny schedule of spring work he bred all his sows to farrow in February and early March Instead ot in May and June. K088UTH COTJNtY ADVANCE.

Having plowed up pasture and hay land for increased corn production he built a temporary hold silage to supplement and Mrs. husband PAGE&LEVEN farms with his father-in-law on the 400-ac.re Lathi-op & Weaver farm on the paving near Sexton. Magnus and his bride were •married January 6, and made a two weeks honeymoon trip which included visits at Cliff Dehnert's and with an aunt of Magnus, Mrs. Fred Mulert, at Claremont, and with two uncle of Mrs. Rahm at Kimball. The couple also visited Duluth. On Shipping Hogs. For comparison we pr,lnt figures supplied by a north of Wesley farmer who on .February 29'shipped six 180-lb. hogs to Chicago. They weighed 1120 pounds at home and gained an average of five pounds en route to Chicago, to weigh 1130 there. silo to pasture and hay, so that the cattle were fed some silage during nine of the 12 months of the year. A ferocious attack was made at every point where increased production could be got and work eliminated, with the idea that every dollar possible should be taken out of the fnrm before the time came to move off and give possession. But lo and behold, recently that farmer woke up to the fact that he had been earning more money and now actually had enough on hand to make a payment on the mortgage which would Jet him refinance on more favorable terms. He found a!.so that in h).s attempt to rob the fnrm he had worked harder and more efficiently and had Improved his methods This farmer had now hit the early market with his hogs three years and has got the best prices comparatively that he ever received. He also got the hogs off the farm with only six months of work on them instead of eight or ten months work, and with that much less feed. His crop yields have gone up ten bushels an acre. Reduction in pasture and substitution of temporary feeds has improved milk production and decreased costs. This farm is now being operated with the precision of a military organization. It has been brought to a,n earning basis, and today is farther "from possession by the mortgage holder than at any time in ten years. AVe shall get a big kick out of telling the grandkids about that farmer's battle some day. The Chicago price was $7.35, or a total of $83.05. Out of this came evpenee, freight, commission, etc., of $7.01, which gave a net of $75.14. The price offered by the local buyer was $.30, or a total of $70.'56. This shows a gain of $4.58 from shipping six hogs instead of selling them to the local buyer. We have the impression that the gain In weight 'between Wesley and Chicago could also have been made at home by filling the hogs with plenty of slop to drink, and the local buyer would probably have overlooked this if he had had a chance to buy the car of stock of which these hogs were a part. Conditions might be- different in .another case, showing shrink Instead of gain. We are airing comment on this in the hope that someone argue the question and thus teach us a bit more about what is the best way to get all the money it is possible to get out of hogs. This party got 76c a head more from .shipping to Chicago himself. Is it usually good practice to take the risk? whether they are worth the epace and the trouble to get them. The purpose is to set out In tabulated form a list of prices paid at Algona on a given day each week, so other town markets can be compared with them. Are there other advantages and can the reports be made more valuable. Let's hear from more readers. After moving March 1 many folks who had valuable cats were obliged to keep them penned up for a time till the pussies became reconciled to the new home. Thus at many farms where we hae called a cat chase has been precipitated. The H. A. Summers family, Which moved to a fnrm vacated by the WIckwires, west of Irvington, had a valuable cat to gunrd. They came from Clear Lake, and pussy was pretty sure to head back to the old home If given a chance. The Summers, related to 'the Wickwires, had been farming 80 acres at Clear Lake. The new farm is 110 acres. There are two children in the family, Austin; 0, and Robert, 4. Mr. and Mrs. Wickwire have moved to the Mndson & Hanson farm near Rich Point. Mrs. August Harlg, south of St. Benedict, was going over garden seeds when we called on a rainy day, March 23, 'and Mr. Harlg was going- over reports and orders In his lubricating oil business. He has developed a considerable business in the lubricating oil sideline. Besides he farms a 320-acre farm owned by his father-in-law, Dominic Stuffllck, Algona. A son Raymond was out at the barn replacing a broken piston In a Maxwell car. Another son, Rudolph, works for his uncle, Charles Stuflick; a daughter Bernadetta^ Is at Algona, where she lives with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Dominic Stuflicks; another son, Adrian, is at home. Mr. Harig is a double brother-in-law to Charles Stuflick next door, having married Charles's sister and Charles having married his sister. August raised 96 spring pigs last year from 16 litters and is keeping 20 sows for this season. Farmers 9 Directory FOR SALE; CHOICE Whito Leghorn Cock- erals, cheap, In order ' to dispose of at once.

With the Gardners. Stanley, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Gardner, Plum Creek farmers, has rented the farm a little way north of the home place which had been operated by the Ray Cooks and is starting to farm for himself. He has both a dad and a granddad who are good beef cattle breeders and feeders, and he has himself studied the dairy side of farming in 4-H club work. He showed dairy calves at the county fair two years, and showed beef calves one year. His start at farming is with four cows and six heifers, all purebred Shorthorns. He also has 15 sows and 10 ewes, as well as six horses. The Gardner boys have always been interested in g^od horses, and have shown In the horse barns at the fair. Stanley's grandfather, W. F. Jenkineon, had purebred Shorthorns many years and was In his time among the leading breeders of beef cattle in this section. His dad, A. R. Gardner, has also bred and sold Shorthorns many years, paying close attention to keeping up herd books and other necessary details. So Stanley has had a better than aerage training in this line. In hog feeding, too, Stanley Is well posted. As an illustration, we were talking about shrink In hog weights where the hogs had been filled with water before , weighing and Stanley said, "Water is not as bad as swill. Hogs will drink more swill because it contains salt and other thirst producing elements also swill will stay with them longer." He added that the Gardners have automatic waterers in the hog lot, so there is no tendency for the hogs to be over-filled with water a' any one time. While we were at Gardner's we learned of a little happening tha' gave Ellis Runchey's meat custom ers some extra good cuts a while back. Mr Runchey, who is an Al gona grocer, had arranged to buy a beef animal from Dad Gardner. 'He arrived when the family was away from home. Having a good eye fo beef, he , looked around, picked ou the most likely-looking and the fat test baby beef, and took it to hi slaughter house, where it was killei and dressed. When the Gardners got home they missed young Ronald's calf clu' baby beef, and, suspecting- what had happened, got In touch with Mi Runchey. The mistake was then satisfactorily adjusted by Mr Runchey paying a premium over th previously agreed price, but Ronal is as a result out of the beef cal club for the season. A Pair of Newlyweds. Magnus Rahm, who last winte was married to Rosalie Neuroth an Is now managing his mother's 290 acre farm, just west of St. Benedic has bought 18 purebred Hampshir gilts this spring. Last year he bough five Hampshires, from which 40 pig were raised, and he kept five of th home-raised gilts, which eaved " pigs. The gilts were bred to farro\ April 1. On the farm are 32 grade Short horns. No sugar beets are bein raised this season, due to lack of satisfactory market, the Belmon plant having been closed Magnus is the only son In a fam ily which boasts nine girls. H should have been well raised, with t many women to look after him. Hi sisters Include Mrs. Ben Pwenge Mrs. Louts German, Mrs. Cllf Dehnert; Ella, In the St. Benedic bank; Emma, working out; Matilda at St. Paul; Rosalia, Rita, and Ar dyth, to the Academy at St. Bene diet.

The 10-acre farm west of Wesley where Mr. and Mrs. Henry Looft started as newlyweds a couple of years ago now has another newlywed couple in the persons of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Baade. Henry farmed 350 acres last year with his cother William a. little way north, nd he is a thorough-going hard- orking young farmer. Henry also has a brother Dick, ho now farms the 350-acre place ith William. There are four sieirs: Reka, at home; Kottie, Mrs. ugust Christ; Minnie, Mrs. Christ enne; and Lizzie, Mrs. Everett enne. The latter two live at Ti- onka; Mrs. Christ, at Lakota. Mrs. Looft is Gladys, daughter of r. and Mrs. John Carlson, of Wes- y township. The Carlsons are mong the most successful farmers f that neighborhood, and they own ne of the best farm homes in the ounty. The couple were married Febru- ry 16, and they start with eight attle, 12 sows. They have a nicety urnished home. FARM NJEWS AND COMMENT. After' traveling several hundred miles around the state in the past eek we came back to Kossuth with firmer than ever conviction that lere is no county in the world more atisfactory as a home than we have ere. Mrs. Anna C. Hansen, who keeps louse for her son Marinus, nortlj of ,u Verne, will be 75 April 28. 'She ame from Denmark 49 years ago. Despite her age she Is a wide reader ind takes an active interest In af- alrs, Her son farms 200 acres, Paul Staudt, east of Charles City, old us one day last week that he vas a cousin of Mrs. H. H. Hamil- on, also of both members of the irm of Krapp & Kochler, who farm next south of the Hamilton Leghorn f'arm and Hatchery near Bancroft. \lr. Staudt, who has a fine farm lome, explained that his mother and, Mrs. Hamilton's father were brother and sister. The Fred Schobys, who had till this year been* working on farms by :he month, are starting farming for ihemselves on a farm north of Lu Verne where George Attig formerly operated. Mr. Attig farmed this land 17 years, leaving only because he iad bought a farm north of Wesley. The Krafts followed him on the farm, now the Schobys. Mrs. Schoby was Ruby LaRose before marriage, and the couple have one son, Fred Jr., 14 months, Jacob Winkel, Union township farmer, wants to register a vote against a proposed legislative bill by which a $50 license would be requlr-. ed from all persons who wish to peddle apples, melons, etc. He says this would help grocers by keeping competition out of the field and would let the stores sell at high prices. Before he began farming in Union township Mr. Winkel operated a meat market at Algona many years, so he should be able to see both sides of the question. Charles Stuflick, southwest of St. Benedict, kept 16 sows for farrowing this May. This compares with 22 sows he kept last spring, from which he raised 135 shoata which were to have 'been marketed last week. Mr. 'Stuflick farms 320 acres owned by his father, Dominic Stuf- lick, who resides at Algona. The latter owns another 320 acres adjoining:, operated by a son-in-law, August Harig. Mr. and Mrs, Charles StufHck have five girls and two boys. One of their daughters, la Mrs, Leo Studer; the others are at home. Mrs. C. P. Hansen, north of Lu Verne, had a whole window full of blooming flowers when we called one day last week. She also had an Easter Illy that had just started to push up a spike and will bloom probably by Easter. The Hansens have had the 249-acre Doctor Janse farm for the past three years. They have three boys and four girls, of whom four are grown-ups, one daughter being married. Th5y came over from Denmark with the three oldest children 20 years ago this March.

The Jamesway is the only brooder built that has a SPECIAL AIR PURIFIER and an AIR MOISTENER. This means that your chicks are protected against the foul, dead air that accumulates under the hover of ordinary * brooders, which parches their tender membranes, saps their vitality, stunts and ' retards their growth and causes heavy death losses. In the Jamesway the foul, dead air is taken off the floor, drawn up the flue, and thus with the air moistener maintains a pure, fresh, moistened air condition under the hover all the time. That's why the Jamesway RAISES MORE CHICKS—why they are sturdier, stronger and grow faster. Jamesway Brooders are simple, easy and economical to operate. You can bvirn either hard or soft coal. ' The large stove holds sufficient fuel for many hours without •" refilling—the large convenient sliding door makes it easy to fill. It will pay you to come in and see this brooder before you buy. A.
