We have read an article in the August Issue of Country Gentleman ntltled, "What Is a Big Farm?" There is mention of a 1,000-acre Kansas wheat farm, on which $6,000 f equipment Is used, the crop requiring four operations, 1. e. two one-way dlsklngs, drilling, and harvesting. In an average year the gross Income might be $14,001) for .he 1,000 acres. Contrasted to this is a 28-acre celery field In New Jersey which yields flS.OOO to $20,000. However, instead of having 1,000 acres of wheat land and going over it four times, the celery farmer goes over his 28 acres 38 times. He thus actually covers about one-fifth as much ground on 28 acres as the wheat farmer covers on 1,000 acres, and gets more money for doing It. county left August n which corn or pasture thla seas- n made a poor crop. If there is to be an open season or pheasants this fall It might be a food time now to run a little adver- Isement in some publication read by portsmen offering to lease the hunting rights on farms. Most any O roup of hunters would rather pay a farmer 50c a bird for each pheasant and have the fields .free from other hunters. There Is also a chance to make a little extra by furnishing living quarters or meals, At the Bancroft public schoolhouse, where the county girls' 4-H club held its Achievement day last week Wednesday, we saw the R. L Krantz truck, In charge of Mrs Krantz, with a load of 22 girls representing the Buffalo Busy Bee club Mrs. Krantz is leader, and Phydells Peterson Is president. The girls had filled the big stock truck with camp chairs. They exhibited 36 garment, they had made and took five firs and four second prizes as a reward for proficiency In the clothing proj ect. In the same way 200 acres of Iowa corn might require $4,000 of equipment and return a gross yield of $0,170, using 10-year average figures. This is contrasted with a 40- 6 over the Northwestern for Sac City,' where they were exhibited at the first In a circuit of eight county fairs, Kossuth Included. The stock Included 14 Guernseys owned by A. J. Brown & Sons, Algona, six Holstelns owned by C.

The 38 head are In charge of John Brown, assisted by Carl Reynolds and Dwlght Hardgrove. The cattl are due to come to the Kossuth fair after they have cleaned up around the rest of the circuit. An additional 16 Guernseys were taken to Sac City to start the circuit for Quarton & Bosworth, as we men- lrlli „,.„ i¥i , tioned last week. Our county Is ac- j way no rth.
