Manufacturing Co. BOONE IOWA ANTHRACITE AND BITUMINOU5 ' Home Grain Elevator. Last week we hnd the opportunity of Inspecting Otto Wltchendahl's new barn in Lotts Creek. One feature that we have not seen in a barn before was an elevator which Mr. Wlchtcmdahl .has rigged up for lifting grain to the feed bin above the basement. He has a hopper which can be attached to a chute through the basement wall. Grain shoveled Into the hopper from wagon outside the barn Is elevated to the bin. When the elevator Is not In use the hopper Is taken away and the chute Is covered by a little door in the basement wall. The barn is 36x08, with tile walls eight feet high on which Cranie walls ex tend seven more feet to eves. A high broken roof Is supported by in side framing so that no timbers ob struct the mow space. The barn has concrete floors, with concrete mangers in the cow barn. These slope HO they are "easily cleaned. The cooling tank in the milk room also is.of concrete, and an electric motor drives the separator. The barn has electric lights. The feedway runs to a 14x32 silo adjoining the barn ori the south. Mr. Witchendahl has a fine set of buildings including a 26x08 tile hog house built ten years ago. He bought the farm 21 years ngo, and rented It for two years before that. Mrs.. Wlchtendahl was Sophia Baas before marriage. The couple have two boys, 13 and 16, arid two daughters, one already a I grbwn-up lady, and the other, the baby of the family, a girl of nine. ed for several years, are newlyweds. Mrs. worked for the Henry brothers near Algona, and for Art Helmke near Whlttemore. He starts with eight cows, and eight sows, only one of which had farrowed up to last week. The young folks will succeed on the farm. We can only add our best wishes for long life and happiness. Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Meyer have the farm east of Lotts Creek where Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Volgt have farm- The couple Meyer Is a daughter of John Schneider, who farms a little east, and her husband is a son of Wm. Meyer, who farms west of Lotts Creek. Mrs. Meyer, after the death of her mother five years ago, kept house for her father and is one of the best young housewives in the country. Arnold has farmed with Dad' Meyer and Is well- trained. , He has been growing a small herd of cattle, taking care of the increase at home, and now has 14 head, including five cows, three heifers, and five calves. He started .with _12 sows of which nine had saved '62 pigs up .to last .Thursday. The farm has ICO acres and Is owned by G. R. Kruse of Fenton.

F. S. NORTON & SON Algona, Iowa Phone 229 FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Carl Brown, south of town, has tile on the ground for a 12 by 40 silo. He bought a new Guernsey bull to head his he;-d recently. The animal's three nearest dams averaged :800 pounds of fat. Carl bought him in Michigan. Archie Haines recently was build- Ing a septic tank on one of his lots near the Vic Johnson corner, east of his Algona 'house. The installation was of concrete and there were three tanks, and the work was being done by Archie, assisted by Len Taylor and S. R. Durant. H. A. (Bates had 42 gilts on his Union township farm when we called a couple of weeks ago. These were due to farrow soon, and there were 1C more gilts on the' Bates Plum Creek farm. The brood sows 20. We wish them success in their married life. . ,'. J3ari Taylor, w.ho farms- In'...a stock-share partnership with Hugh Herman on the latter's farm north of Algona, turning off several cai loads of fat cattle and a couple hun dred hogs each year, is a natura stockman. The 30 or so brood sows are housed In bara stalls, sheds chickenhouses, and temporary shel ters. All sows have lots of bedding Mr. Taylor said there was nc- regular hog house on the farm, but he seemed to be able to find hogs everywhere in most any of the buildings. Mrs. Taylor, who was Julia DeGraw before marriage, is a daughter of L. G. DeGraw, Algona. We got a glimpse of her carrying a big milk pall heaping full of eggs, so we guess Earl is not the only one who helps to fill the city breakfast table with farm produce. The couple have a 3-year-old boy, Ralph, who Is about as much interested in- hogs as Dad and doubtless will be growing them by the car load some day. clared thnt Iowa land Is still the best investment in sight, for lam bought now, when the depression has forced prices to a low level, will rise, in value and make the owners »s rich as the pioneers who acquired land became. The United States is drifting Into a reverse of the country-to-city movement of a few years ago, Mr. Ingham said,. More and more people moving from the city to the country. Suburban booms near great cities indicate the tendency to Bet out of the congestion, the noise, nnd dirt of the city. At lyes Molnes tho magnificent Hubbell home is miles from the heart of. the city; in Illinois Governor Lowden and the McCormicks have country estates, where they live going to the city only occasion ally. This movement is accelerating. History Founded on Agriculture. The history of the world is not that of great cities, but rather that of great country estates. True aristocracy has always been, and always will be; founded on land ownership. Land is stationary. It can- ducts manufactured in the United States. The tariff on a Ford In one European country is now $11(000 above the price of the car here. Wealth Is expressed in price, Mr. Ing-ham said. No country can be wealthy with l<Jw prices. It takes high prices all around the circle to make everyone wealthy. Lo w prices against high puts both at a disadvantage* Low-priced merchandise cannot bring enough to buy the high priced, and if the high priced doesn't sell It is worthless. Land Is Best Investment. Land is still the best Investment, said Mr. Ingham, returning to his opening statements, especially now when farms are selling at almost bankrupt prices. Twenty, thirty forty years from now the land will still be here, and In comparison will 36 worth just as much then as now, orobably many times more. There s,no stocks, bond, or other Investment so certain and so safe. In New York and Chicago persons wealthy before the depression are now absolutely down and out. They Gas Now Sold (Held from last week.) The price of the cheapest grade of gasoline has dropped almost to the figure of 15 years ago, when was sold at 10c, and would in fact be a half cent lower but for the tax. A price of 9%c plus the three cent tax was announced late Friday afternoon by the local Ghamplin station, and all other local stations Immediately followed suit. Bee Sting Swells Elbow. Robert, 6-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Firm Lalng, was stung by a honey bee Saturday, and the poison spread throughout his right arm, which swelled up to the elbow He was unable to attend school Mon day. . not burn, blow away, sink, or lose itself as the result of drops in the value of its products. If worst becomes worst, the landowner can make his living o n a farm, while a factory, steamship, or railroad owner can live O n none of his products as such. These are all subject to rood, which comes from land. No one knows what caused the present- depression, when It will end or why. It Is deemed certain, however, that the bottom has now been reached. All great economists agree - made their money by collecting commission on products passing through their hands. The sale of these products W as slowed down by the depression, ,and commissions dwindled almost or quite to nothing. This demonstrated that the operators had no real basis for their wealth: The business they were in Is worthless when products are not moving. The real basis of all wealth is the land. Mr. ingham said the best advice that can be given to business, men and farmers now is to "hang- on," for better times are coming". Mr. Ingham was accompanied to Algona by C. W. Russell, Omaha, and W. J. .McChesney, Iowa City, who married his sisters. Introducing Mr'. McChesney, who .has for many years been treasurer of the state university and was under fire in the recent legislative investigation, T. P. Harrington remarked that he had been convicted of the terrible crime of serving without a salary and turning bock more money to the university than he received.

The Heiters had moved an old barn out from their property at Lone Rock and remodeled it as a hog house.. The Ray Lloyds are occupying the Heiter tenant 'house and Ray Is working for Mr. Heiter. John Sheller, Whlttemore, is the new tenant on a farm vacated by the Elmer Jaspersons in Plum Creek township. John farmed 160 acres in Lotts Creek township for several years.

The Hamiltons have had a good, season so far and have orders booked farther ahead than at the same time last year. The big 20,000 egg Incubator has been running at capacity since the last week of January. The Hamiltons are now making and selling five 100-lb. bags of their own mixture of chick feed daily, and have sold as high as one and a half tons In a day. The feed is proving wonderfully successful. They make two kinds of mash, a starting and growing mash for feeding- up to six weeks old, then a developing mash, both ground artd mixed by machinery installed last fall and winter. Folks who taste chick feed put out by the Hamiltons and c.ompare It with other kinds notice a difference, no by-product being used in the Hamilton feed.

And it is certain that when times do again become Prosperous, prosperity will be based on a firmer foundation of credit, the wholesale abuse of which is believed to have bee n one cause of the depression. Tariff Program Must Change. Reasons assigned for the depression are as numerous as the causes must be. one of the greatest causes has perhaps been the United States Policy on tariff. This country must change its tariff program, Mr. Ingham asserted. We cannot expect other countries to buy our products when we shut the door to theirs. Nations now raise and lower tar. |ff Iwalls in concert. When the United. States raises tariffs. on one country's product, that country immediately raises Its tariff on pro Your Mother goes or I go.... this minute! SOY BEANS Farmers: Why not raise Soy Beans?

The farm is becoming a large producer of poultry both for sale and to raise, and there are more than two thousand baby chicks now growing up on the farm. Poultry prices have not fallen off as much as some other lines of farm produce, and we may find' the poultry business is the anchor to leeward, as was the case at the time of the 11921 break in prices. Oscar Hentges and bis bride have started farming for themselves on the Wernert farm, west of Algona, where J. L. Dittsworth had operated for several years. Oscar has farmed near Bancroft in partnership with his brother Dinnle on land owned by the big Board-of-Trade Berens of Chicago. Now Dennle has the big far alone, and Oscar is starting- out for himself.

The Hentjes boys are hard workers, the kind that get ahead. • Hugo Mittag, who was married to Malinda Nemitz last October, has now started farming for himself on the Robert Dreyer farm near Lotts Creek, and last Thursday had 82 four-weeks-old pies saved from the first 11 of his 15 brood sows.
