Lutheran Good Hope church at Titonka, him a fine flock of Buff Orphlngton.s, a big garden, and some' fruit. A grape arbor yielded a bushel of Beaty grapes. A Green Cliigo plum was coming Into beiir, »nd the fruit was about ripe last week Wednesday. The church, built new two years ago, Is a fine building, and apparently attendance Is growing. For the last Sundny in August Sunday school attendance was 72 compared to 02 the week before and 55 tho same clay a ycnr ago. We were priviledgcd to enjoy lunch with the Six Pashas from Arabia and evening- to como In. Mr. Wort man said, "The way to get the crowd in early Is to feed them at noon." Certainly this should be, a big help in attracting the best kind of con- cessionaries 'If It is promised that there will be a. crowd all day and evening Instead of just late afternoon and evening. Some of the men very capably active In promoting Lakota's Sauerkraut day include Fred Schwartz, nearby farmer, Banker 13. R. Worley, Ed Thaves, former newspaperman, Dr. H. H. Murray, S. A.

Mr. Schocnleln at the Aid nllv credited with originating the meeting, where heaping plates of sandwiches, cake, cookies, ice cream and coffee were served. The ladles offer about two dollars worth of lunch and charge only a. fraction of that much. We learned something from our little visit with the Rev. Mr. Sch'roenleln, for he, more experienced than we, start, ed hinoli with only a moderate plateful of good things, and then a'ccepted additional helpings as his supply Idea when he first came to Dakota as a young merchant. There are others active, notably Editor Clemmens, but we did not happen to establish contact with them on this visit. The celebration was very successful, and we Intend to plan ahead of time to be at the celebration next year. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT.

Mr. Schoenlein had charge of a church within 14 miles of Des Molnes for some 30 years, and has been in charge of the Tl- tonka church for seven years. Services are conducted In German and English on alternate Sundays. A parochial school is maintained In summer, and there is a children's Bible school Saturday afternoon. In addition to the Aid and Sunday schood, there is an active Luther League. See Corn Borer's Work. Veterinarian R. C. Ball and wife, of Titonka, returned from a month's trip back east where they visited Mrs. Ball's home folks and toured points of interest. They traveled a total of 3,860 miles in their new Bulck sedan, and also traveled 1.200 more miles by boat on the Hudson river. The trip included mileage in 14 states and Canada which they entered from Niagra. They saw the corn borer in several '.counties in New York, and Michigan, being held up several times by inspectors working on the corn borer quarantine. Doctor Ball was interested to note the "reaction in various sections in regard, to state-wide testing for T. B. He found public sentiment against this in many sections visited. The money problem in the east was bad. In New York state too much rain caused fruit to rot on the trees, but the poorest crops appeared to be through Indiana and Michigan. The Ball party can-led a Kossuth county fair advertise, ment on the bumper all the way to New York and back. While ' in Ohio a car drove abreast and called to them, "Howl is everything in W.est Bend, Iowa?" They learned that the inquirer formerly resided at West Bend. Mrs. Ball's old home Is at Washingtonville, twelve miles from West Point on the Hudson about 60 miles above New York City. They also visited Bennlngton, Vt., in the Green Mountain country northeast of Albany, Lake Champlain, Ft. Tlconderoga, Lake George. This is the first trip Doctor and .Mrs, Ball have made back east together since their marriage. Before leaving the doctor's office in the First National bank building we picked up what we thought was an Indian war club, | but were told that we were looking at the neck bone of a bison. The bone had been picked up by Doctor Ball on Buffalo creek west of became depicted, thereby ho made Deere tractor, nearly new with three out a satisfactory lunch without bottom plow can be had for $490. The outfit has been used about 50 days, cost $1,11,40. See this writer, or get nnme at Advance office. At Lakota we were introduced to Carl Jones Hansen, third son of Mr. and Mrs. Erman Hansen. The young man's birthday was August 23. The Hansens formerly farmed at Titonka, but are now living in Lakota. The new baby appears to be a fine healthy fellow. A week ago Glenn Jehkinson had already made -SO or 90 gallons of cider at his largo orchard northwest of town. Also many, apples have been sold. Apples picked from the trees were being sold at a seasonable price, and cider was being sold both at farm and delivered in town. At the J. E. Wilson cafe at Titonka we met one of our Algona neighbors, Sylvanus Wilson, father of the cafe proprietor. Dad Wilson was looking after things while J. E. was up north humoring his hay fever. This was the first we knew that the two men were related. The Wilson cafe' is a fine up-to-date eating place that any city could be proud of. Seems funny how We get an idea In the old bean and hany onto it year after year. We always had a T HESE SIX ARABIANS have a IG-cylinder action attraction that has never been eclipsed, and find little competition in headlining any bill on which they may appear. In one of their acts five men, with an aggregate weight of more than 800 pounds, are held up by a single man, who weighs'only 150 pounds, and is only 5 ft., 9 Inches tall. This is the best tumbling and acrobatic act in the field this year. See it at the Kossuth county fair. PHONE 637 town. An Honest Dollar. notion that Joe Koestler, of Port' land township, was a bachelor, but last week we found out he has a charming wife, and two healthy Browing sons, Merwin, S, and Gerald, 2. Mrs. Koestler is, Gertrude, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Moore, who farm over in the Fenton neighborhood. The couple have been married eight years. A new well has lately been dug in their yard and water was found at 47 feet. The Rev. and Mrs. G. Haken, of the Reformed church at German Valley, returned to his parish September fourth after a month's vacation in their cottage at Spirit Lake. The Rev. Mr. Haken said fishing, one of his favorite recreations, was very good at the lake recently. He also enjoys bathing in the lake. The Rev. Mr. Haken has served- 26 years at the German Valley church. He is the fourth minister to have charge of the church which was first in' corporated in 1897. The present fine church and parsonage were both built in 19113. Harry Seed, hardware man at Titonka, has sold 37 parlor circulating heaters since he came there in 1929. The fall of 1929 was a good stove year, 11930 was too warm, and this year, is starting off well again. To us it seems the folks at Titonka seem to be In best financial condition we have found for some time. Nearly all sales were paid by check in full and we have enjoyed the largest business ever 'done in any of our quarterly trips to Titonka. Many of the most substantial citizens in Kossuth county are found in and around that town. Odd years seem to be the lucky years for Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Schenck as regards prizes won by their babies at the state fair. In 1927 Jerald won a gold medal with a score of 97.86, then in 1929 Lee won a silver medal with a score of 97.74, LAKOTANS SEE KOSSUTH WIN AT STATE FAIR Lakota, Sept. 8—Reports of those in attendance at the state fair state the attendance good for a few daysi but later the crowds were much smaller. Eating places and concessions reported trade light. Kossuth county made a good showing with exhibits. The aFrm Bureau exhibit placed first on appearance and fifth in project. The women's project [ tied with Woodbury county for' fourth place. The demonstration team was judged perfect, and the 4-H girls' team placed fourth out of 58 teams. Frances Geishecker, of Lu Verne, won first in Iowa, and also in the open class junior exhibit, with a Shorthorn heifer, and a number of individuals won prizes on exhibits. While waiting to start home we talked with Mrs. Hlo, who operates a ten-acre grape plot, and who won first on her grape exhibit of 85 varieties. She told us there are 1500 varieties of grape and gave us a basket filled with a number of different varieties. School Enrollment Larger— The Lakota public school' opened Monday with an increased enrollment over last year. Following is a list of teachers: First grade, Miss Carsen; second and third, Miss Awe; fourth and fifth, Miss Show-alter; sixth and seventh, Miss Hastings; junior high and high, E. L. Grabau, R. E. Hamquist, Mrs. Prigge, and Miss Lockwood. Trickster Gets $10 from Algona Clerk A new slight of hand trick was worked on an Algona business house this morning by a stranger, who Is $10 ahead as a result. A man appeared at the counter and said he wanted to mall some money in a letter. He had some one dollar bills in his hand, and told the clerk that the 10 one-dollar bills would be too bulky, and asked for a $10 bill in exchange. The clerk didn't have the ten, but furnished two five-dollar bills. The stranger sealed the envelope, and then counted out the one dollar bills, and was astonished to find only nine of them. He said he probably dropped one in the car. Taking the one dollar bills, he told the clerk to keep the letter as security while he looked for the other one dollar bill. When the stranger failed to return the letter was opened, and found to contain only a blank piece of .paper that had been substituted for the two fives by the stranger.

Talking with John Krull, pioneer southwest of Titonka, one day recently we found him in a mood to be dissatisfied with things as they are. He favora the Wallace Farmer theory of an honest dollar, and is one of the hundreds of farmers who sent in a ballot advocating a stable price level. Mr. Krull has lived in the neigh; borhood 31 years. Some 18 years ago he bought a 160 acre farm, .paying $62.50 an acre. He used 15 carloads of tile to drain and Improve the land, only to lose the premises recently. He Is now back on his old farm which he has owned 25 years. He says he formerly paid $45 taxes for the same farm that he now must pay $350 taxes. He also has been obliged to pay graveling tax and lay out so much money to get back low returns that he Is nearly convinced he would be better off if he owned no land. He says however that the farmers will not starve no matter how hard the times get for they can raise food at home to keep the pantry full. ' Oh well! Mr. Hoover or Mr. Alfalfa Bill Murray, or maybe Mr. Roosevelt will get things fixed up for ua some day so we won't have to pay so much taxes, and will have better prices for what we sell, or will learn how to produce the stuff we sell cheaper, or maybe Instead of waiting for someone to fix all this for us, we can scheme up some way to help ourselves to mend the situation as It refers to each one of us. Mr. and Mrs. Krull have the reputation of being kind hearted neighbors, and we hope especially that things will brighten u.P- and be more satisfying to them. A Real Celebration. We had the pleasure of attending Lakota's «6th annual "Sauerkraut! day August 2«. Watching the crowd packed around toe fire hall where sauerkraut and weluers were being distributed-at noon we learned a trick about holding celebrations of this kind. Blanker WWtoWi gftvf us the tin wh?» w a*^,*^ g and this year, 1931, Paul Edgar won a silver medal with a score of 95.96. This year's score was .83 better than last year, accordingly had that amount of improvement to his credit. The baby Raymond, age 12 months and eight days competing in a class of 55 babies, failed to win a prize this year, being too young to make the best showing. He will be get- tint in shape for next season however, and being it is a presidential election year, and likely to go democratic at that, he may win a medal without waiting for the odd year: Mrs. Schenck was formerly Miss Upton, home demonstration agent for Kossuth. Alfred is a grandson of one of the county's earliest pioneers, and still farms the original homestead. E. O. Miller, who formerly operated his own farm north of Wesley, but sold out there a year ago last March, is now operating a modern feed grinding business at Titonka. We had missed Mr. Miller; thought he had gone east to Mason City; but he has been in business at Titonka ever since leaving his farm. The equipment used Includes a new building built especially for a feed grlnc(- ing establishment, part of which is three stories tall. There is a drive- in grain dump, a 40 h. p. electric Lukotan's Brother Is Dead— Albert Rosenau, Lakota, and Au gust Rosenau, of Algona, left last week Tuesday to attend the'funeral of a brother, the Rev.

Many farmers grind a load or more of feed each week. Among Mr. Miller's customers are Bruno Stecker, R. LfKrantz, S. G. Keagle, and others who bring grain In regularly each week. With cheap feed this winter much home-grown grain will be ground and fed profit' ably. Mr. Miller's long experience as a farmer himself should enable him to give, best of service to his farmer customers.

A band and a male octet were features of advertising stunts to attract a crowd. Yodeling by the two Telgland t)bys, of Elmore, was a local attraction that especiajly pleased the Elmore crowd.
