F\ItM NEWS AND COMMENT. The August Schmidts, who moved to town from their Good Hope farm last winter to make room for their son Alfred, who married and took over the operation of the farm, are planning to remodel the home they bought on Heckart street in east Algona. An 8x20 addition will serve as kitchen and to house potted flowers which Mrs. Schmidt always has around her. Henry Heyer, who moved th s snrlng to the farm vacated by Gail Fri" west of Titonka, had 60 pigs saved from nine litters when we called April 6. He to a brother of rportre Heyer, who has the om home farm north of German Valley but up to ten years ago farmed the property George now operates, had heen farming at Buffalp Center His present operations include ihree eighties. Mr. and Mrs. Heyer have two children, Merle, 6, David Lang, of the' I Evangelical church, Lu Verne, was hard at work in his garden when we called one day last week and was Ian to find a good ulld before long. John F. Hintz, northwest of Lu Verne, had been up late the night efore we called one day last week, ooking after his brood sows, and ad saved 115 pigs from 13 litters. 'here were three more sows to far- ow. Last year 80 were raised from 1 litters. Mr. Hint?, has owned his 'arm 20 years. He was off the place i few years, operating a larger farm near Algona, taut returned, and now has everything neat and attractive around the home. He has even built a small lily pool, and there were fish in it last year; also there is a 12x1 flower bed surrounde<l by a low lat tice fence, and Mrs. Hlntz was wait ing to plant her flowers. We noticed, on the Godfrey broth ers farm, just south of Lu Verne that a man was driving a 15-S tractor which pulled a tandem dis and drag hook-up. The oats hac been seeded on the corn stalks from an endgate seeder, and the tracto was pulling the two discs, one following the other, with a drag behind which completed the seeding; that is to say, once over with the endgate seeder and once over with the tractor.
