PAYNE, Editor With Walker Bros. | Walker Bros., W. F. and L. R. Walker, west of Algeria, have a new double corn crib and granary, built since last summer by contractor Wllllnm Amtin, Algona, at a cost of around $2,250, 27x30, \vtth foundation two feet down and the gable point 44 feet above ground. There are concrete floors throughout and an Inside Meyer elevator.* The Walkers had Intended to build a, machine shed (it the same time, but decided after the foundation had been built that It would be better to hold tills part of the building plan over till farm prices were better. They have a fine, big, modern home, built some time ago. The 320 acres the Walkers operate is part of the original holdings of their father, the late Peter j. Walker, who came to Kossuth in ISG'J.] Ho bought his first. land at $5 an acre, when that part of Letts 'Creek township was'practically a wilderness. •Mr. Walker was'a native of England who ciim c to this country in 184!) as a lad of 17. The Walker brc thers' maternal grandparent, William Robinson, also came from England, and his wife, who was Sarah McBrkle, was a New Yorker. In addition to the 320 acres farmed by L. n. and W. F., another quarter section adjoining is operated by a brother, Arch B., a.nd still another quarter, also adjoining, by yef an other brother, Albert S. J. E. Wai ker, who farms 'his own land farther west in Lotts Creek, is a The couple have a boy, Eugene, three, and a girl, Joyce, eight months. When we visited Eclw. Kuecker, Lotts Creek, a month ago ho was going through n. period of ill health such as catches many of us at some time In our lives. He had his ton slls out and other treatment, buf was still feeling- poorly. The day that we called the dust was blowing across the road from a newly ploy- ed field on the Walker land, and doors had to be kept closed In the house. Fred Kuecker, Fenton but- terrnaker, luul just stopped, on his way to Algona, for a few minutes visit. He is a brother of Edward. Emil F. Mittag, Union township, last year raised 4,3(11 pounds of pork in two litters at sevtn months. There were 14 pigs In the t\vo litters. He saved r>G pigs in eight fall litters which averaged about 140 pounds a month ago. This year he had saved 00 .spring pigs from the first 11 litters, which were two to three weeks old a. month ago. Mr. Mittag is one of the farmers who finds it sometimes pays to take extra pigs and put them with a foster mother if that will help him to raise more of the little fellows. C. A. Geilenfeldt, who farms 240 acres north' of Hobarton, has eight horses and two colts, and in addition operates a tractor. He says his methd of operating makes use of the tractor only about 30 days a year, which probably is not as economical as it could be. He prefers horses for much of the work, and fruit ie excellent, and a half bushel was obtained last year even after some frost damage. A grandson, one of Tom Halpln's children, last year planted several of the seeds from the same fruit, and now has a row of seedling peach trees growing. The tree is well worth growing for beauty alone, even If no fruit was obtained. Alfred Schenck was • feeding the Holsteins when we came that way one evening recently. They were getting a ration of silage, alfalfa, and ground feed. A new man, Walter DeWItt, of West Bend, Is the regular hand this year, and with his family Is occupying the tenant house. We started to find out about Alfred's tractor costs, and were prepared to figure Interest and depreciation on a. big investment, for he has a powerful Mollne two-wheel outfit; but he said he got it for only $100 at a sale out of a warehouse. The machine had sat unused in the warehouse for [i years and was thus was an old model, but satisfactory for those who know how to operate them, as Alfred does. With a first cost of only $100, however, we couldn't see how we could get hand and mother to look after the household end of things while he makes a start. Albert Wertjes, south of Lone Bock, saved 98 pigs from 14 Utters this spring. The oldest were five weeks old ten days ago. He has 60 acres in oats, which were up at that time, and had seeded sweet clover in half of the oats. Mrs. Wertjes had 370 three-weeks-old baby chicks, of which only ten had been lost since their purchase from the Cotton hatchery. She had the brooder house floor made of wire netting, so that the chicks had the clean wire to walk on. Dirt and droppings fell through the net. Mrs. Wertjes was Emma Mabus before marriage. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Mabus, live at Lakota. She also has two brothers and two sisters there. Mr. Wertjes's parents also live in Lakota. They are large land holders, owning six or seven farms In that vicinity, also residences in Algona and Lakota. Mr. Wertjes has three sisters and two brothers. Both he and his wife are the babies of their respective families In point of years. They have a son, Don Duane, who was one year old May 13.

Pioneer's Trees Cut. Many of the big trees on the former Nick Klein farm northwest of Sexton have been out clown lately. The trees were unusually tall and many of them scattered about the door yard. Thinning has improved the appearance of the place, and besides the trees will make good lumber. Jas. E. AIcEnroe now owns the farm, and will use the lumber in building additions to some of his own farm buildings. He, with his sons Lawrence and Hugh, are farming the land in connection with his own property adjoining. The farm house on the Klein property was built by Jim Cowan who lived there till 28 years ago. He sold to George Benschoter, who farmed the property for a time. The Nick Klein family moved off a year or so ago. The house on the land is now occupied by Howard Andrews, who is building up a stock mineral business. The Jas. McEnroe house was built by Elijah Caulkins, who came to the land now owned by the McEn- roes in 1869. The next farm west, now occupied by Jas. Carrol!, is the old Owen McEnroe home, a pioneer landmark in Plum Creek township. Owen McEnroe, now deceased some 30 years, was father to Jas. E.^McEnroe. The old homestead stiir belongs to the McEnroe family. Mrs. McEnroe, before marriage, was Elizabeth O'Rourke. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Theo. O. Thompson, north of Algona, is using a tractor with small I overhead cost. He paid only $200 for his machine eight years ago and has paid not over $50 for repairs since, and he says gasoline, oil, and grease for an average day costs only about $3. Mr. Thompson uses his tractor about 35 days a year.' John H. Rode, east of Titonka, had saved 175 pigs from 27 sows when we called a month ago. The pigs were then a month old. From 12 to 14 cows are milked. Mrs. Rode was Marie Brandt before marriage. The couple have two sons, Wm., a young man of 17, and Arthur, 10. The Rodes farm their own 160 acres of land. R. J. Keen, east of Algona, said recently: "Some of. the folks are worrying for fear all the pheasants will be killed off,- but I saw six pheasant hens one morning recently in one group," The Keens, R. J. and his father, A. J., have a ton stallion, a splendid animal, which they will dispose of at a reasonable figure, as they are not,taking him on the road this year. Christ Brandt, of Titonka, told us when we called about a month ago that he had 50 pigs saved from six sows—the pigs had come the night before. He was seeding eight acres to alfalfa with oats, and now has had alfalfa on a good deal of his ground. As we were leaving we remembered to ask if he had any more to farrow this spring, and Christ said: "Sure! 20 more coming soon." William Neiiroth, on the 400-acre Lathrop & Weaver farm, east of Algona on the paving, saved 53 pigs last yeav from seve n mid-May litters and' sold them In December at an average of 240 pounds for 17.40 a hundred weight. He was to have ten sows farrow this spring. Mr. Neuroth is to have 200 acres of corn this season, and he had MO acres of oats above ground April 10. All of his plowing except 20 acres was d °Godfrey Geilenfeldt, operating the •MO-acre Durant farm, north of Algona, for the past three years, had Lved 77' P^ from the «'•** «' ters up to a month ago. He then had seven more sows to farrow, we had finished seeding 85 acres of oats ABFil a, and was to plant 100 acre, of ooro. Mrs. Geilenfeldt was Burtis before marriage. yet wants power when he needs it, so keeps the tractor. The sows on the farm were just farrowing when we called three weeks ago, and 48 pigs had'been saved from the first six. There were five more sows to farrow. At the James W. Caroll home in Plum Creek township, John, a son who is right hand man on the place, was keeping pretty busy. Thirteen cows were being milked, and 112 sows had been kept for spring farrow, this being more than were kept last year. There were ten fall pigs, farrowed at Thanksgiving time, which a month ago would average 21'5 each. Three acres of potatoes had been planted April 15. A son Dennis also is at home this year, besides the daughters Lucylle and Lillian. Other daughters include Mrs. \V. T. St. John, Mrs. C. A. Penton, Mrs. Alvin Hardcopy, and Mrs. Ted Trunnell, who farms in this county. A month ago Richard Potratz, west of Algona, had 2G pigs saved from three litters, with 13 more sows^ to farrow. He has lived 39 years on the same farm and'43 years in the neighborhood. With his sons Alvin and Martin, he farms 320 acres. They do not use a tractor but keep 'horses. They had 1115 acres of oats seeded up to April 10, and were to plant about the same acreage of corn. Mrs. Potratz is a daughter of the late Ludwig Wetzell and a sister of William Wetzell, who farms a little way north. In addition to the two older boys there Is a younger son, also three girls. Glen Jenklnson, north of Algona, had saved 42 pigs from seven gilt litters, then one to four weeks old, when we called a' month ago. He said four had saved. 28. He Intended to keep these four sows for fall farrow. The gilts had. been farrowed in last-spring litters, out of which Mr. Jenkingon had sold 23 seven months shoats^.averaging 254 pounds. It pays to watch such things. Save gilts that are out of sows raising fast-growing market hogs. And we also should keep bulls and boars on the farm long enough to find out by test whether or not they improve our herds and give each year better results than we had last year. At the Charles B. Walker home on north Thorington street in Algona there is a seven-year-old peach tree which has been a. riot of pink bloe- some for some days. The tree grew from a peach seed thrown out the back door, and because the location on the south side of the house was protected has grown nicely, and is now a good sized tree with several bearing seasons to its credit. The any cost-of-operatlon figursH of interest to readers, so we dropped that angle. Mrs. Annn •'Mittag and' her son Edwin are farming the Albert Potratz farm, west of Algona. Mrs. Mittag, with her husband, the late Ferdinand O. Mittag, conducted a, general store at Lotts Creek for many years. Mr. Mittag was also extensively engaged in the raising of fine poultry, and he shipped breeding stock to other fancier!, throughout the country. He was a graduate pharmacist and kept a large stock of drugs and medicines a.Iong with his store stock. Mr Mitta.Vs father had been a Lotts Creek merchant before him, so the business came naturally to him. Mrs. Mittag is a daughter of the late Chris Manning, who farmed just east of Lotts Creek. The Manning home farm is still operated by her brothers under the firm name of Manning Bros. No\v that Edwin Is of the age when a young man starts out for himself it is' fine to have capable parental advice at will be a chef when he grows up, as tie likes kettles and pans to play with.
