Braner, new pastor of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran church, spoke last Thursday before the Kiwanis club on a visit which he and Mrs. Braner, with their son, made in Germany in 1929, He recalled that he had come to the United States 17 years ago, or prior to the World war, and said that he found conditions In the old country changed in the extreme. • On the ocean trip outbound Mrs. Braner and the son enjoyed every minute, but Mr. Braner suffered with seasickness, which kept him below deck most of the time. Mr. Braner was saddened when he visited his old home town, and found the house his family had had occupied by strangers. The Braners spent the Fourth in Germany, and the son was surprised and shocked when he discovered that Germany didn't celebrate the holiday! The extent to which the family had become attached to this country was marked on that day, for all. three could not but feel that they we're miselng somehing. The effect was put in words by the son, who pensively wondered what the boys back in Lu Verne were doing. Mr, Braner said the family returned to this country with a better understanding of the freedom we have, here and the opportunities offered In the United States, as well as •w' tn a greater love ,and a more intense patriotism in behalf of their adopted country. • Mr. and Mrs. Lroy-.Swanson now operate the old Swanson home farm, north of Ledyard, where Mr. and Mrs: Oscar Swanson farmed last year.

Ristau, of South Kossuth, and their son have tended 160 acres of corn this year. Mrs. Ristau spends some time helping on the cultivating job, while the daughters look after the housework. This is 20 acres more corn than the family tended last year. We all have to be more efficient nowadays. W. P. Matoon, north of Lu Verne, was out last week with a gr'ubhoe, digging sweet clover out of the corn field. The sweet clover, when it is growing out of place in a man's field, can cause more ill temper than any one other thing, we believe., A man just grts to th* point where a grubhoe or a, stick of dynamite lis called for.

We then learned that E. M. Worden is now the new renter on the farm and that W. J. Dutton Is operating where the Wordens formerly operated southwest of Elmore.

Mr. and Mrs. Risk were married when she was but IMJ, and they now havej farmed for themselves one year andi have a fine baby. Elmore is a ^reat neighborhood for early marriages, there being several married at 16 and 17 years, In the country south and west of Elmore; in some cases the bridegrooms started for themselves as young as 17 and are setting a pace In good management for older heads to shoot at. V" What Does "Interest" Mean? w you get 3% per cent interest on Time D'e- posits at our bank, just what does this mean?' It means simply that you are paid for waiting, Instead of spending your money at once. Somebody else ' needs money now and through us pays, you for the use of it, while we guard the safety of your investment. Even If you received no interest, you often would get more satisfaction out of waiting—out of dreaming dreams and then making these dreams come true in some big way—rather than letting the money slip away on a variety of passing whims. ' . It' !e a joy to save regularly. Why not start today, ard watch your little treasure grow at compound interest?
