Kessel, southwest of Elmore, had saved 93 pigs from 14 litters up to our call Friday, so Mrs. Kessel said. That looks like a good start for the season's hog raising operations. Mr. and Mrs. William Countryman, their son George, and his wife were last week visitors with another son, Arthur L. Countryman, north of Ledyard, and were also at the Geo. D. Moulton home south of Ledyard. Mrs. Moulton Is 'a Countryman girl. Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Anderson, Elmore, left June 11 for a two weeks vacation on Lake Superior. Mrs. Anderson is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Vrohman, south of Elmore farmers, and .Mr. Anderson is the Phillips bulk station oil man at Elmore. Two sets of harness were stolen from the Earl Haas barn, south of Elmore, the night of June S. Earl has a good farm witlt yard, well fenced, and we should think his place would be one of the last to be thus visited. The thieves entered Klatt, Blue Earth, and Herman a son of Mr, and Mrs. Andrew Loge, who own and operate the next farm north of where the young folks are making their start. The couple were married last October 2. Herman has a quarter section except for 2'5 or so acres in a bottom near the house which have been rented for beet land by Dad Andrew Loge. The premises are being Improved rapidly. A new barn was built last year, and fencing Is being done by Her man. He started with three sows, from which he has saved 20 2- months pigs, and he has seven milk cows and five heifers. Herman has been well trained as a thrifty young farmer and will succeed. ALGONIAN ATTENDS COLLEGE FORESTRY EXPERIENCE CAMP Lewis Ferguson got home Frida> evening, from Ames, where he ha co'mpletecl,i his freshman year a Iowa State college.

The camp is conducted as a summer school of the college, but students are registered as volunteers on call from federal foresters.

A Word to the Women One of the significant developments of American progress is the growing amount of financial initiative shown by women. An evidence of this is the increasing number of women who carry Savings Accounts in their own names. Women find it a joy to save out a little money REGULARLY, putting it away for use when the "nest egg" becomes large enough to make possible some pleasure surpassing ordinary routine. We invite you to experience the pride of possession as owner of a systematically growing savings account.

Recently after having spent a few days in town and having heard several persons say they could not get work, and some even challenged us to show them where work could be found, we made it a point to keep an eye open for job opportunities. Around Elmore and other towns we noted many Mexicans Imported for labor in the beet fields and in- qlred whether this was a Job that would offer wages too small to support white men. We were unable to find any good reason why anyone out of a job should pass up beet- tending. The work is hard, of course, and the living quarters provided are small; however, the pay runs double what ordinary labor is getting in town, and the work can be done by anyone who will work hard. Take, as an-instance, figures sup. plied us by Andrew Loge, south of Elmore farmer who has 45 acres of beets this year. He said he Paid some $1200 In wages to Mexican labor last year but would gladly hire white labor if he could get it. Andrew said' his own boys worked in the beet fields as much as they could spare time for it from other duties. Arthur, 15, is earning $3 a day right along, blocking and thinning beets. A grown man earns up, to $8 a day. Two of the other boys, Floyd ana Alfred, 19 and 17, tended three acres of beets last year in spare time between their regular work of tending corn. The three acres paid them $•'3 an acre, and that was extra money above regular work. Note that they squeezed that earning in on spare time. . This year the going rate is %i>\ an acre, and a man can tend an acre a day each trip over. The season requires three trips to earn the $«1 an acre, and the work lasts about three months. Shacks are provided to live in that are usually better quarters than many so called summer cottages on mosquito-infested lakes and rivers where people from better homes annually vaca- Why do people out of work shun these jobs? The writer, 25 years two barns, taking the best harness from each. Carl Berggren, west of Ledyard, farming 179 acres of Sullivan & MrMahon land and 40 other acres, is tending . 120 acres of corn this season. He had saved 70 spring pigs from ten litters, but was complaining about having sold three GOO-lb. brood sows at only S3.80 cwt. Mr. Berggren's operations have been Increasing each year as he learns to handle more work. Mrs. Harriett Matzener, daughter of Mrs. F ( red Jenks, has taken over the Standard Cafe in the old hotel building ,a£; Ledyard, and is'serving excellent meals to the fortunate pa-i trons of iier' (establishment. Wp wish Mrs. Matzener success in her new venture. Folks from Algona who motor up that way should order In advance one of Mrs. Matzener's chicken dinners. George Nauman, formerly of the St. Benedict-Irvington neighborhood, is now on the former McWhorter farm in Portland township', where the Bunkofski family operated last year. The Bunkofskis bought land near Swea City and moved to it. Mr. Nauman operates 285 acres and has 105 acres of corn. His two sons Ernest and Edward have 460 acres northeast of Lakota on which they are' tending 220 acres of corn. Mr. and Mrs: Nauman. have two other sons and one daughter.

Hall, of Grant township, has been having a siege of ill health and has been obliged to seek' treatment at a Fairmont hospital. She was at home for. a- time, but returned to the hospital. Mr, Hall said she was now improving, and we hope she will soon recover fully. The Hall family was among the earlies.t settlers in Grant township, coming when the land was raw and undeveloped. They have contributed their share to the upbuilding of the neighborhood and now see good roads, a consolidated school, and other improvements which in the early days were undreamed of. R.
