Paul opened the lot Kate, and the i.'ire camp running to him 'n.s hough assured of good handling 'hp Htalllon will bp three May HI, nd four weeks ago weighed t.fiiiO -ounds. Mr. Palmer has seven work borses, the .stallion, a 2-year-old lolt, a, 4-year-old, and the foal. Paul also has a Fin-mall tractor, ind we figured, up how many days' iso ho got out of it last year. Mr. "•aimer's father-in-law, M. N. Philips, has an interest in the tractor, ind used It 1% days; also, a. neighbor, Mr. Culbprtson, used it on a orn picker nine days. Altogether the tractor was used as follows: work In oats field, 4 days; plowing, days; on binder, 4 days; for belt work, 4 days; on corn picker, 15 lays; on spring-tooth harrow, 5 :lays. This is a total of 38 days. If the overhead for taxes, depression, "epairs, interest, etc., was $165, as ivc recently figured for a similar size of tractor, then the cost of using thin machine was about $4.35 a day, plus about $2.80 a day for fuel, oil, and grease, making the total cost $7.15 a day. The more days such a machine is used, the cheaper to operate, other things being equal. Mr, Palmer had/, 16 sows saved for spring farrow, of which 12 had saved 70 pigs now a week • to two months old. farrow. Four sows were still to pnglp.fi r.nd pulk-.l -a six Inch bottom plow. Mr. Malueg is a railway mall clerk, and his gardening is a sideline. Tie did raise poultry too, but has disposed of hin flock as unprofitable for one who must buy food. Trying: to be helpful, we suggested lisp of a fine poultry house to grow mushrooms in, but Mrs. Ma.lueg said a skating rink would be more fun. Mr. and Mrs. Howard Andrews, who had farmed In the Doan neighborhood for years, recently moved to a. house on the .Tames McEnroe farm In Plum Creek township which Nick Klein formerly owned and operated. Mr. McEnroe and his sons Lawrence and Hugh now operate the farm, which they lately bought and added to other holdings adjoining. Mr. Andrews is traveling for a stock mineral company. Mrs. Andrews had the premises neat and attractive when we called one day last week. Roy Lowman has moved from the farm where he lived last year to the home farm, where he lives with his father, L. J. Lowman, who recently lost his wife. Roy continues to operate the land he had last year, but Mr. and Mrs. Bert Campbell have the house and Mr. Campbell is working for the Lowmans. Mrs. Campbell recently returned from a hospital, where she gave birth to a baby while she was recovering from a three weeks siege of double pneumonia. The baby lived only a few hours. Mr. and Mrs. C.

OMlfrlesland.- The nair were married at the little Brown church near Nashua March Modernized Farm Home. The L. H. Crawfords, who had had the Yankee Ridge farm, of .Timmie Neville fame, just northwest of Algona, for the last several years, have now moved across the road ^to the old Peter Hansen farm which they bought a year ago. As the result of well-planned remodeling and rebuilding has been supplied with an unusually convenient set of modern buildings at small cost. The cattle barn was raised one story and is equipped with concrete stalls, metal stanchions, and automatic running water at each stall head. There is a two-story poultry house, also equipped with an automatic watering system, besides electric lights. The water is piped from pressure tank in the basement of le house, which has been raised id modernized. When we called, Sirs. -Crawford as preparing to let some baby licks out of the Brooder house onto •ound to scratch dirt, and young ofjer Dean, who will be three in une, was out in his overalls enjoy- ig the sunshine and supervising he job. Another son,. Gerald, was school. Mr. Crawford had saved SO pigs P ne to get uild it up. A "Bloody" Youth. At Loyal Young's in Plum Creek, he youngest son, Keith Fay, one ml a half years old and already ressed ' in diminutive overalls, limbed into the car, fell out, and cratched his forehead enough to et smeared up with a little blood, 'hen he got hold of a bottle of mercurochrome, a red liquid diain- ectnnt, and proceeded to smear this ver hands and clothing. This done, ie looked bloody indeed! The Youngs are this year without i hired hand, so both Mr. and Mrs. Joung are rushed with work. Mrs. Young was getting the milking ma- hine pails and tubes put together, he first time she had ever done the assembling alone, and Mr. Young lad just driven the tractor from the ield to the machine shed. Dixon Cay, aged 4, and Jean LaVaun, 5%, vere helping all they could. We mention all this just as a .ketch of farm life in the year 1931, vhe'n prices are so low that farm iclp Is being dispensed with wherever possible. Mr. and Mrs. Young operate Loyal's parents' farm, which Center school in Union township, and then moved to Algona for a couple of years, are farming again, this time on the Sullivan & McMahon SO just north of, town which Verne Rutledge vacated this spring. We are glad to see these good people back on the farm. The house has been attractively papered and painted and is as neat as can be.' Mrs. Knudsen is a naturally good housekeeper. The O. A. Laabs family, of Good Hope, were in the midst of house modernizing when we called one day 4. They start, with six sows, five cows, and two calves. The patlle urn Swiss and HolstPin.

Mr. Schendel once lived with his father, R. C. Schendel, on the farm which Ed Kuecker now operates in Lotts Creek township. That was 17 -years arid more ago. The father now lives at DeFuniak Springs, Fla., having moved there last une. The younger Mr. Schendel thought he might locate in Florida and follow his trade of auto mechanic, but h.e found ox carts still In use down that way, and being no ox-cart repair man he could not see how to make a living in such a country. Mrs. Vern Gross, of Union township, was "fussed" last week Monday because of the dust which had blown into the house in the dust storm of the preceding day. The French windows on the sun porch were the first line of defense, but dust blew rig-ht through it and past closed glass doors into the main Ames Reliable feed.

The mother of Harry Dillion, who farms just west of the Johnson corner, northwest of Algona, was sick when we called last week, and Alvin Billion, another son who farms near the Irvlngton gravel pit, was with her. Perm Sewlck Is the' new man on the Schlpul Bros, farm in Plum Creek, and'Mrs. Sewlck, who was Edith Crouch before marriage, is housekeeper. She is a daughter of Harvey Crouch, Algona. The couple have two children, cille, two, and Ray months. Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Harvey, north of Algona, were expecting Mrs. Harvey's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Zanke back from California last week for a visit. They formerly owned and operated the big Union township farm which Lawrence Glsh recently bought and occupies. The Zankes were to drive back, and they may'stay all summer, returning to California In the fall. The Clarence. Hopkins family has moved back to Kossuth from Mason City and Mr. Hopkins Is working on the county road force. The family Includes a son Merle, 14, and a daughter Elaine, 11. They are occupying the house on the H. J. Bode farm where the McGinnis family lived last year. Mr. Hopkins 1 old home, now operated by a .brother, A E. Hopkins, is only a'little way north, and accordingly he is well acquainted in the nelghboyhood. At Jos. J. Elbert'a, on the paving, first farm on the south side of the road west of the Alsona airport, a small fire last week Monday was put out with small loss. Mrs. Elbert saw it start near the wash-house chimney, boosted her 6-year-old son Clement to the roof, and gave him a bucket of water with which he put out the blaze. A fire in these dry times is likely to be costly. The Elberts have six boys and five girls. Clement, the youngest, was the hero of the neighborhood for the day. L j. Malueg was using a 8*f* den'tractor to Ptw with last vwJc, tbe first W have seen. The outfit was powered toy a we cyli»4er doing a good deal of the carpentering himself, and Mrs. Laabs was his right-hand helper and supervisor. A bottle-fed Iamb was being raised by young Lorence Ruhnke, who has made hie home with the Laabs family during the last eight years. The lamb's mother died, John Schimmel and his father-in- law, John Williams, have about 5,0 pairs of pigeons at the west edge of town, on the place where Mr. Williams has operated a market' garden for several years. The garden is still the main thing; the pigeons, a sideline. Three or four hundred squabs a year will be raised. They sell at 40c a pound, purchased i by local people who enjoy squab on toast or otherwise, or shipped to other markets. There are also several kinds of fancy pigeons for sale as breeding stock. Each pigeon female is expected to lay 50 eggs a year. The birds are kept confined. Mrs. Don Moore, of Union township, who has had her share of illness and hospital expense in the last few years, is now enjoying pretty good health, and last week was busy with a cold frame in which she had a good start of cabbage, tomato plants, radishes, and lettuce. Don showed us a fine lot of 100-lb. feeder pigs which he said he must sell or buy feed lor. The farm, owned by Mrs. Moore's mother, Mrs. Kate Annis, is one of the most pleasantly located places In the county,, having just the right amount of woodland and the valley of the Black Cat meandering through it. Fred W. and Paul Schneider, of Union township, toad their oats seeded and were hauling 'Straw manure when we called recently. It was nearly 6 p. m., and Paul said he was tired of this job, so he was going to quit and shine up his car while Fred took a load out. Fred says Paul has two' "girls", and we even got the names of both. The boys are the active members of the firm of 'John Schneider & Sons. John has been a resident of Kossuth cleaning tools, for a major attack on the enemy. A little way east Mrs. H. A. Bates had just finished cleaning her fine modern home when the storm arrived and laid a fine coat o^ (lust over everything. Mrs. Bate's s'aid she would have to houseclean some more. Other women "were complaining, and the men were speculating on how many more such dust storms it would take to drift soil enough to cover the fences.
