Jlmmle Ard, genial station ngcnt at Irvington, has "some farm" along the railway right-of-way In front of the depot. Across the track he has nearly a quarter of a mile of the right-of-way planted to vegetables, and around the depot he has flowers. Peonies set out a year ago bloomed this season. Ho secured his plants from the Cairy gardens at Eagle Grove, the owner of which Is n brother of Editor Seth B. Calry, of Whlttem.ore, Mr. Ard also has a big stand of gladiolus, IB kinds, and these also were bought at the Calry gardens. There are hollyhocks, marigolds, canna lilies, dahlias,, and moss roses, as well as many other flowers. A bed of tulips has bloomed. In the vegetable garden Mr. Ard Bhows ripe cucumbers. He,had not dug any new potatoes yet. Glen Haln said he could beat Jlmmle on new potatoes, for the Haln table had had them since July 1. Mr. Ard has done good work against obstacles. Part of the ground was formerly a sand pile, and the rest was just the usual rough railway right-of-way before he started work. He has run a hose from the water tank to fight drought and has put in a lot of real work from which he is now getting good results. of farm Improvement going on throughout the county, notwithstanding the complaint about hard times.

Pott, of the Hanna Switch, northeast of Lu Verne, had saved 155 spring pigs from 20 litters up to last week Wednesday, then more than three months old. An average of 7% pigs to the litter from eo large a drove of brood sows Is good hog-raising. John P. Helderscheidt, farming his own land east of Irvington, hac some of the best-headed small grain that wo happened to notice lasl week. He was cutting a mixture of barley and oats July 9. Many farmers say they get just as much for barley and oats mixed as for oats alone and that the crop will weigh out heavier. Carl Johnson, on the Otto Willey farm, northeast of Lu Verne, has saved 125 March and April pigs from 15 litters. That 'is more than eight pigs to the litter from a size' able drove of brood sows, and i' sounds like good hog-raising.' Mr Johnson said that three of .the sows farrowed 15 pigs apiece, and eaved nine, 10, and 10 pigs respectively. The Irvington Farmers' Elevatoi company Installed, some time ago a 20-ton Fairbanks-Morse, spring less scale at a cost of $1,200. Thi scale is built on a plan similar ti that'of scales used by butchers, bu weighs loads up to 40,000 pounds This is the only scale 'of the kini that we know of in the county. Mr Headley, of the elevator staff, sale however, that he thought the,Hardy Farmers' Elevator company had a similar scale. It is a self-weigher. Mrs. C. M. Whltehlll, Sherman township, who for many years rais e3 big White Orpington chickens has gone over to White Leghorns and from 800 chicks bought las April from -the Hamilton Leghor farm at Bancroft now has 770 bette than 2-lb. fries which are fine-ap pearing birde of the Teal laying type. She bought 100 of the bes matings from the Hamlltons, an out of this 100 has lost only two t date. She Is, of course, well satle fled with her purchase. Herman Hintz Jr. was celebratln the advent of a 9-lb. boy when w visited the farm, west of Lu Verne July 8. The baby, born the day be fore, Is a vigorous youngster, ah he has been named Myron Max. Th baby's maternal grandmother, who with Grandpa Max Meyer, farm near Hardy, was looking afte mother and babe. The other grand parents are Mr. and Mrs. Herma: Hlntz, Lu Verne. This is Mr. an' Mrs. Herman Hintz Jr.'s secon son. The other son, Junior Hintz will be three next January. Some time'ago we mentioned th" Doctor Price farm, north of L Verne, and incidentally referred' t Fred Plumb as tenant. Mr. Pluml and his family, who had farmej 50-50 with Doctor Price for severa years, are now farming a larg farm in Union township, and Mr and Mrs. Will Radii ocqupy th Price farm. Doctor Price Is a wide ly known government veterlnarla who has for some years been sta, tloned at Algona, where lie own the old Blackford homestead just a the right when-you approach th BlackJord bridge going west. The farm operated by • John Hahl east of Irvington and next east the John Schultz home is being 1m proved. A 36x40 new barn is bein built, and a 60-ft. well hae bee dug. The premises have had qnl makeshift improvements up t now. The barn was mostly o straw, and the house a patched-u affair. The well was drilled b Hugh Partridge, and Johapnson Sons started construction of th barn July 9, There is a great deal FOW Air?

Later, west of Irvington, we noticed that the farmers of that neighborhood, as sual, had the lead of the rest of lie county. On July 10 the binders ere in operation throughout the ounty from Algrona to points north Elmore. Some fields were weedy, nd some grain 'had small heads nd short stalks because of dry eather. Some fields, however, were leldlng well. The Hefti field was arley, but the oats were about udy to cut. We know of a young farmer who ame to the.U. S.,not long ago from foreign country and who wants to ent a good stock farm. He is an xcellent farmer and a hard worker ho will keep crops free from weeds nd take good care of a farm. He as plenty of stock and wants a ood, well-fenced place. Any land- wner Interested can reach him hrough this writer. During the last wo years this young farmer has veraged 80 bushels to the acre of orn, and he has had clean, well ultiyated fields. We think good armera and well improved farms hould go together. This man has nly an average farm at present and voUld change to get a well fenced arm. Mrs. Henry Miller and eome of er relatives and friends were ousecleaning and painting last 'hursday at her farm just west of Godfrey Strieker's, east of Irvlng- on. The house Is soon to be .occu- ied by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Miller, who will move to it from Maeon ity. Henry is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Miller, large-scale'farm- ers a little way south. The house has been vacant for a couple of years, so the change means an in- irease in the population of the Irv- ngton neighborhood. Henry will probably work with Dad, which doubtless means that Alex will rus- :le around and get more land to 'arm. Alex is one of Kossuth's jest farmers. The Fred Schobys have had a new l%lb. girl since last week Monday She has been named Jean Lois. We called .at the Schoby home, midway jetween Lu Verne and St. Benedict :he morning after the event ant found Fred hoeing his wife's garden. Mrs. Schoby and the bab> were at the Kossuth Hospital, and Fred's mother, Mrs. J. F. Schoby was looking after the household work. In the garden was a row o sweet potatoes which were doing well, grown from plants secured a the Huenhold Greenhouses. At the farm we met Jean, daughter of Mr and;;Mrs. W. K. Schoby, who farme in Union township till a few year ago. Mr. Schoby, now bookkeepe at the state brand creamery at Ma son City, is a brother of Fred an C. H. Schoby. . Mrs. Frank Gronbach, west of Lu Verne, set crimson red and white mottled canna lily bulbs side by elde In the same flower bed, and the two kinds evidently crossed, for a white mottled flower having one crimson petal has been produced. The flower is a creamy white, with yellow snowflake mottling, and it has a large, finely colored crimson petal. We have never before seen such a beautiful combination of colors in one flower. The flowers were in bloom In the Gronbach front yard last week Wednesday. The leaves of the plants also showed evidence" of crossing. The white-flowered canna had light green leaves, and the red end of town has people who can go into the Minnesota lake country and bring back the big fish. Deputy Sheriff and Mrs. C. A. Samson and Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Samson, the latter couple formerly of our neighborhood but now farming In Plum Creek township, went up to Winni- bigoshlsh just before the Fourth and brought back plenty of fish, some as much as a yard long. We can testify to this fact, for we of the Farm department home recelv- a gift of a big pike that long, flowered canna had dark, reddish green leaves. The new plant has leaves like the red plant, but they have occasional stripes of, the light green. It Is an odd "sport" and very beautiful.
