Monied Side Lines. A potato farmer from Minnesota just called and offered potatoes at 8Bc a bushel. A couple of watermelon farmer boys from near Des Moines were on the street recently with fine melons at a quarter each. As boys the writer and a brother gathered and hulled as many as 250 bushels of black walnuts, also lesser quantities of butternuts and hickory nuts each year. We took these from the timber country around McGregor to nearby prairie towns, where we sold the nuts at $1.50 per bushel, If memory serves correctly, or 35c a peck for the.large nuts. The hick| ory nuts were sold by the qunrt. We gathered the nuts, hulled them by of plastic leather, which can be smeared like butter on shoes that need half soles. When dry the stuff Is said to bo tough and durable. Heels can be built up In the same way, and tire casings can be repaired. Mr. Hansen showed us a patch on a tire that had been driven sev- eralhundred miles without showing wear. He also showed several pairs of shoes that had been half-soled at a cost of a few cents. Looks like ho has an article that will sell this winter at a time when folks will want to save all the money they can, and get additional mileage from their shoes and auto Urea. PAQB ST.

This section received a heavy rain accompanied by a windstorm last Thursday noon. There was a nice rain Monday evening. The rain is not much help for gardens, but will be a boon to pastures and cisterns. Farmers are doing fall plowing now and will cut corn and fill silos soon. TILE SILO FILLED WITH NEW CORN COLLAPSES ON BARN Thirty minutes after a crew had completed filling a tile silo on the Bernard Loftus farm near Hum* boldt the structure toppled over, and crashed Into the Loftus barn, causing damage estimated at $2500. Th« crew of neighbors had just, completed putting 180 tons of ensilage into the silo, and were sitting dowii to supper when the crash that rocked the house came. The silo was '19 years old, but had been carefully, Inspected before filling. driving each one through n. hole bored In a plank, dried them and drove them to market with horse or team. The money thus earned came in mighty handy In lean years. There will be many such specialties pushed this year by enterprising farmers and farmer boys. With the Kran sen. Mr. and Mrs. Walter • Krause, of Letts Creek, were having a concrete floor Installed In their 20x62 poultry house last week. Fred Wagner was doing the work. The Krause poultry farm and hatchery has acquired some of the very best mating stock from the Wyckoff White Leghorn farm, of Aurora, N. Y., and Is going In for White Leghorns more than ever. The Krauses bought 100 baby chicks fropi Wyckoff, had them shipped all the way out from New York, and saved and raised 75 out of the 100. These will be used to furnish 'some extra quality 'baby chicks next spring. The cockerels will be mated to the Tancred strain hens now on the farm, and every effort will be made to build up to highest quality all of the Krause laying stock. The Krause farm will show a full line of birds at Kossuth fair, competing in all divisions of the breeds they handle. FABM NEWS AND COMMENT. The C. C. Smiths at Burt plan to build a stone fireplace in their nicely landscaped garden soon. The fireplace will have practical use as a trash burner, and will also be available as a center around which barbecue parties can be held. Mr. Smith Is one of the Smith brothers, widely known general store operators at Burt. Sam McClelsh, southwest of Ban croft, took 4,000 bushels of oats from 125 acres this year, for which the price .would be $000. Last year from the same acreage on the same farm he took • 6,000 bushels, worth $1920 at threshing time. That 1s a great change In price and yield. Mr. McClelsh has 150 acres in corn now about out of danger of frost. Barber C. F. Whalen is one of Burt's enthusiastic fishermen, and brings home the bass and crappies at least some of the time. He has a nice clean shop, and barbered our unruly cowlicks and double crowns In a thorough going and workman- ater pipe is run out to houses where an • auto- was located. ;, Other aterers were "located In and Mrs. this year the hard like manner.

Dr. J, G. Clapsaddle • acquired the former First National bank building at Burt, and has fixed up a splendid suite of offices for his 'own use in the former banking rooms. The big front window makes a fine north light for operating and surgical work and the fireproof safe offers cool storage for chemicals, medicines, etc. The doctor has his office and receiving room where the board of directors of the bank formerly met. Passing the D. M. Long farm east of Algona recently we saw the horses trot out to pasture, find just the right spot for the purpose, and then lay down and roll enjoyably. Furthermore two of the horses rolled over two or more times in the short space of time that we were driving by. In boyhood days we were told that a horse that rolled over once was worth $100, and a horse able to roll over twice was worth $200. We wonder if the rule still holds «ood.. Mr Long's horses appeared supple and able to demonstrate more than 1200 worth of rolls. •Merle Wellendorf, who a few years ago bought the 80-acre farm southwest of Burt now operated by B A Taylor, has been trimming out undesirable trees, and repairing around the premises last week. He has put in 80 rods of new fence, and ft. painting all buildings. The 80- acre farm is all in corn, with the exception of ground occupied by the firm buildings and a little pasture, leaving some 70 acres for.corn. Probably 60 acres wilt be 'kept m corn next year. Merle has a fine ?ruck garden here in Algona across from the fair grounds. Elsewhere we mention peddling walnuts, melons, onions, etc.. as a possible farm side-line in ha»d times. Well,a few nights ago we stopped at the Gordon Hanson home soutWest of Tltonka, and he showed us a new thing he intends to sell through .the winter.
