Mrs. Relnecke reported that tho Ole Altkens, also former Irvingtonians, were at Brainerd, where Mr. Aitken is employed in a paper mill. Mrs. Reinecke Is unable to work because of rheumatism. Wilbur J. Payne, Editor In Northeastern Iowa. During the past, week the writer journeyed over Into the Mississippi river country for a brief visit among old friends and »elatives. The trip also was partly business, as we visited half dozen of the Register & Tribune men over that way. We are among those fortunate .souls rich' in relatives scattered at many towns, and so while the rest of the family visited relatives, we maiic business; visits with the county register representatives, and incidentally worn informed of crop con- age clammer' could earn about $9 a' week. A fisherman with plenty of equipment, power boats, houseboats equipped with ice boxes, and cleaning equipment, etc., could earn only a little more. A sand and gravel company was employing all surplus labor and the sand was being used on nearby paving operations. En- route into Harpers we came to tho rim of the river valley and turned off the car Ignition to coast down a two or three mile winding hill road to Grandpa's house at the foot of tho hill. At Waukon our old honeymoon house that we built the year we were married looks as brave as ever, but the nelghborhod has not Improved much. A new high school has been built near-by, and other improvements doubtless have increased the comparative value of the premises. Much road work Is being done all around Allamakee county. From McGregor we came home by way of Klkader, Strawberry Point, Oelweln, Waverly, Nashua, and Charles City. At Nashua's Little Brown Church a wedding party was leaving and another wedding was already in progress as we arrived at 5:30. A total of 150 people had registered in the book that day. At Waverly and Nashua, where power dams have backed the water into a lake, there are wnter surroundings that add to the town's liveablllty. We wished Algona could put in a dam, get a surface of water, and have boating and other advantages along our river. At Oelweln the tombstone over mother's grave, now 30 years old, has worn so that some of the engraving can scarcely be seen. The stone was 'beautiful when set, but must have been soft to wear so quickly. We also looked up the small poorly-constructed house where we lived when first we went to Oelwein at the beginning of the railroad shop boom.

In this guise he has min gled with amusement seeking crowds in the four corners of the globe, and has made himself one o 'the most laughable personalities 'before the public of the presen jgeneration. Pair officials state that the hippodrome events at this year's exposition will be the mos elaborate witnessed in many years game of solitaire, which she played so often that she has not cared to touch a card since she was able to be up and around. We hope she will soon be.fully recovered and her usual self. A son Louis lives with Mr. and Mrs. Jenkinson, a.nd works the small farm.

Roll call was answered by telling Who I Think is the Greatest American, and Why. Lucile Black gave a talk 'on correct necklines, and Effle Egel one on correct diet for a club girl. Plans for Achievement day this week Wednesday were laid. Ruby Koepke and Ruth Black were chosen as the demonstration team, Elsie Egel and Lucile Black as judging team, and Iris Ashing as style show girl. The meeting was followed by a social hour, and refreshments. Rutiedges Entertain Relatives— Thomas Dole and Kitty Whitney, Grinnell, brother and sister of Mrs. William Rutledge, and another Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Dole, also Grinnell, visited the Rutiedges Saturday and Sunday. Mrs. Rutledge's broth- each of the ' various and Mitchell counties some of the oats were so short- sstalked they could not be cut with •a, binder, and were left in the field. Corn there In some of the sandy locations had tasseled out a stunted stalk 1.8 inches ,to two fee£ high. Pasture was dead and cattle bunched up not eating. These counties are in desperate need of rain. , There are fine crops around West Union, Claremont, and up that way, Allamakee county county showed signs of being steadily more and more dry as we drove towards the river, but bottom land along the Mississippi was showing excellent crops and 40 bushels of oats to the acre was a regular thing. From Charles City to Algona crop conditions bettered steadily.

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Schoenwetter, daughter Ethel, Mrs. William Ax, and the latter's daughter, a Mrs/Christian, all of Garner, spent Sunday at Elmer Weisbrod's. Mrs. E. C. Weisbrod entertained Mrs. Ray Welp, Mrs. J. H, Sheridan, and Mrs. R. N. Bruer, all of Bancroft, and Mrs. H. E. Relmer at bridge last week; Tuesday. . Mrs. Jay Woods returned to home at Gowrle last week Wednesday after ten days with.her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Weisbrodt - \ Mr. and Mrs. Fred Market^ were Blue Earth. All planned to return to Grinnell via Mason City, where they were to visit other relatives. Mrs. Rutledge's eldest sister also lives at Grinnell but was unable to make 'the trip. Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Cox, of David, were also callers at the Rutledge home Saturday. Corn Aided by Heavy Rain- entire county is considered. We noted threshing from shock is now the rule clear through to the river. Formerly the northeastern counties threshed from stack. We saw only one stacked setting of grain on the trip, and learned of one point near Waukon where grain was not even shocked, but threshed from ground where the bundle carrier left it. Possibly this was because of the dry weather. We saw the new swimming pool at New Hampton. It is a fine pool, but we did not like the location as well as Algona's pool. A large num- b'er of soldiers with their wagons and encounterments were camped near the pool. At Lansing we parked near the new bridge, and walked over it across the Mississippi river. We then drove up Mount Hosmer, a high bluff overlooking the river. We had climbed this many times in the foundation to get anything to live in, and then take whatever house the speculating contractor chose to build on it. , The town rose from a village of a few hundred to a city of 5,000 within a short space of time after the Great Western railway started to build division shops 'there. The old school we attended burned, and a new one has been built. The old college building, which later became the high school we attended, has been torn down, and we could not even find the location of it. A fine new high school has been built nearer our old home. Well we are back on the job and will try and have a more interesting column next week. We certainly enjoyed the trip east and hope we may be able jto go again some day. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. At Harpers Ferry Will Kean, who formerly farmed at Thompson's corners near there, inquired after his cousins, the Louis Johnson family of Irvington. When we saw W. H. Bosworth in mid July he was sweating and working like a Trojan in the grain field, but he said he would take a herd of 'IS Quarton & Bosworth Guernseys on the show circuit this season, starting August ID. This is two more head than the successful herd that Mr. Bosworth showed last year. The first stop is to be at Sac City. Hugh Patridge, Irvington township well driller, obtained 40 feet of water in a well he- drilled for Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Mitchell on their farm near Galbralth. When we saw Mrs. Patridge in mid-July she said Mr. iPatridge was drilling another well on another farm, owned by the Mitchells near Ventura. The Galbraith farm is operated by Charles Hints, if we remember correctly. Mr. Mitchell is Hancock county representative for the Register & Tribune. Hugh Raney, southeast of .town, was getting ready to paint most of the form buildings when we called two or three weeks ago. The house was to get another coat, and the chicken house, granery, machine age, and probably from 2o pounds to 100 pounds in weight. Mr. and Mrs. Rich Kaschmitter, with their three girls, nave been occupying the Hargreaves tenant house west of town, and Mr. Kaschmitter has been working for Mr. Hargreaves. Richard Is a brother of the Whlttemore elevator man, and had been working at telephone construction In Minnesota. This work was Inactive this season, and he came to Iowa to take the place vacated by Donald Palmer. When we called July 18 Mr. Kaschmitter had stepped on a nail, but continued to work, and did not expect to be laid up. He was hauling groin from the elevator, and favored the foot temporarily.

Minneapolis, reporting the birth pf a granddavghter the side. The road is so steep that we, for many years used to the flat country around Algona, became scared and put on so much power that we raced up the very steep road, thereby getting the radiator boiling in fine style. There is a halfway place where the road makes a hairpin turn, where we stopped and enjoyed the view for 20 miles up and down the river, and let the i motor cool. On top we had lunch, and coming down the side of the mountain with the car in low gear there was still some use for brakes. Later at Marquette we also saw the work that has been done toward completion o$ a, new bridge across the river at that point. Piers have been built, and a lot of -the steel erected. At McGregor the residence we owned on main street before coming to Algona has been torn down and a large fine "modern home is being built. Adjoining it a new oil station Ished, and other small buildings were to be Painted. The Raney family have a fine hospitable home in Irvington township.
