The Solo- ere en route to Spencer from rings, where they had spent | with the Lloyd Solomons. lere accompanied by Mrs. , of Spencer, who had been a few weeks at the Lloyd ] home. ', . "• ., knd 'Mrs. E. H. McCormick showed 50 head of dairy calves, 18 head of beef calves, ,17' pigs, seven coltH, and several pens of sheep. Jn the girls' club building 15 booths were crowded with needle work and a variety of other products of the "05 4-H girls' brain nnd talent, and was easily the largest and best display of this kind ever shown hero. Tha Harrison township Healthy Hustlers club won first on booth. This club, organized In Mny, 1929, had 122 articles 'exhibited. The club won three firsts and two sec oncis on clothing, a second on record books, and a third on poster. The special feature was a representa lion of a water wheel, based on Iowa State college, supported by H. D. A. Miss Body, and the spokes were the members of the club, turn Ing on its axis, the club leader Mrs T. F. Johnson. We presume the water which turped the wheel might be club spirit, or perhaps the parents had a share In that part of the representation. It was a good booth. The quality of the sewing shown in garments exhibited was high. The Fenton Forward club, organized In 192G, now with 26 members, has made 121 garments this season, and took second place on booths. The special feature was an outline of a built-in clothes closet showing Ideal arrangement to care top garments hung on hangers and shoes stored in drawers. The club's publicity posters were outstandingly neat and well arranged in the booth. The club took three firsts, two seconds, and a third on garments ex'- hibitod. The club activity poster won third, and Lorena Freyer, a affairs and sent the demonstration team, Mary dlsch and Alice Payne, to the state fair. No record of garments made. When one understands the hard work put into preparation of these dresses, the hundreds of garments made, posters prepared, etc., It Is re- wonderful the good that can be winnings Merlin Larson, Swea City, who had excellent Durocs and good club records, won $23 in prize money on his pigs. Harold Evans, also of Swea City, showed more pig club stock and won $39 in prize money. We want to have more to say about the work of the clubs, both boys and girls', at a later date. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. E. Hoffman, south of .Ledyard, had some nice corn which we looked over last week. He was snapping some big ears for the hogs when we called. Mr. and Mrs. Roelf Miller, new ly-weds of Buffalo Center, are now tenants of the '•farm west of koto, where Hugo Sleeper operated or Severn 1 years. The Sleper fain ily has moved a mile or so south to the farm vacated by the Michael" sens. We had overlooked this change on our last trip. George Mayer, east of Titonka has had the power line extended to his farm, and is now enjoying all th| comforts that electricity brings. Mr -xpeeted from the time spent by the Meyer also has arl underground gas iflrlH in 4-H clubs. The great 'l5 or ! ollne storf >gG tank and a regular fill 20-ft. square -1-It banner used over demonstration platform was ing station pump, and the enjoys other comforts not family usuall; made for the county organization by i ex » ecte<1 on the farm. Mrs. J. M. Patterson, of township. Riverdalo i George Welgand, east of Titonkn had a nice looking dairy herd in th lot, and we complimented him on i Fair Exhibits Bil? | T °° man y o£ them, said Cfeorge, bu At the- county fair' the liog pa ., prices have improved a little on bu vllion was filled to overflowing, and terfat, and George may be favorln vldently was putting in some of his venings at shingling, and that ac- ounts for the lighting on the job. r. Schroeder was preparing a nine- ore field for alfalfa seeding. He was sing disc and drag three or four mes, nnd a two-row corn plow was cing used to get the field In just he'right tillable condition for seed- ng. Since then the heavy rain ame. We hope the seed was in ie ground ahead of the rain. ' Whittemore a row of temporary pens full length along the east side of the building was also filled. Grand champions! ,, in the various breeds were won as reat one to Iook after tlle famlly Boar, George the cows again by this time. Georg is one of the best stock and cro farmers in the Titonka vicinity, a member, won second on her record book. An unusually attractive garment which seemed to win the Interest of the women folks was shown by another member, Irene Krause. The third prize on booth was won by Portland Peppy Pals with a special feature showing old fashioned and modern methods of caring for the baby. Their booth had follows; Poland Boar, George P. Hawcott, of Rurt; Poland sow, O. R. Gardner & Son, Gracttlnger; Duroc hour, Ben Studer, Wesley; sow, Nels Rogenhagen, Thompson; Hampshire boar, Harold Fister, Swea City; sow, C. C. Baas, of West Bend; Chester White boar and sow of E. H. Kalil, of Lakota; Yorkshire boar, Ben Studer, Wesley; Spotted Poland boar and sow by R. R. Lair, of Terrill.

They won two firsts and two seconds on clothing exhibited, and the club activity poster won second. This club has 22 members, and has made 184 garments so far this year. We liked the booth of the Buffalo Busy Bees which won fourth place, id home. Max Sievers, Collins farm man- ;er living just west of Titonka, oes most of the farm work on 100 ires near Thompson, 160. acres here he is located, and on an 80 o the north. It is by use of more ower machinery and less man pow- r that Collins alms to keep costs own. Men like Mr. Sievers, who ook after these farms, have to have a mechanical turn of mind, and work teadily to get the work done. We complimented the Leo Schmidts oji how well their house ooked. We had in 'mind that they lad formerly lived in a house that lad been moved from the A. A Dreyer nearby farm and remodeled for their use by Dad Robert Schmid who owns the land. Now apparent ly the house looked like a new one and Leo said that indeed it was new one replacing the old hous which had burned May 26. Le farms 120 acres of the 400 a'cres tha his father, Robert Schmidt, owns. Near Lakota we saw a rente farm house that needs shingling but the landlord evidently . is no yet ready to incur the expense this repair, accordingly he or som one had done a bit of ropairin where the shingles were most needed. But here is the point of the story. The patching was done with metal signs advertising a lumber Mrs. Ben Hopkins returned home VIonday afternoon. She had been at Iharles City three weeks, and at Cylinder one week, relieving the rlllwaukee agents, who took their | vacations. Irma D.

Beside her was another doll, a healthy country girl who told us her main ambition was to join the 4-H girls club. The Buffalo Busy Bees have 28 members, and have made 176 articles so far this season. Their work .is excellent, especially as a high per cent taking club work are among the younger girls in that township. The other winners among the 4-H girls included Helen Kent, of Wesley Willing Workers, Dorothy Christensen, of Harrison Healthy Hustlers, and Rosetta Barker, of Riverdale Lone Eagles, who won first, second, and third on. personal account hooks. Winners on record books were Crodelia Rlstau, of Lu Verne Loyal Workers, Lorena Drey- of Fenton Forwards, and Fern and also won grand champion ewe in Oxford as well as many first and champion credits. The winnings in all departments this season are especially important because more exhibitors made keener competition. We will have more to say about the stock in later issues, but have space for only a list of champions in this issue. Best tub of creamery butter wns shown by O. J. Klocke^ of Whit lomore, scoring 95; the best two pounds of dairy butter were shown by Mrs. Elliott Skilllng, of Algona, scoring 93, and the best two pound of cottage cheese were shown by Mrs. F. L.

In the inter-club heifer group contest five calves shown by Wesley club took first. In the pig club best fat barrow and also the first prize pen of barrows, all Polands, went to Merlin Larson, of Swea City. Best purebred Duroc gilt went »to Harold Evans, of Swea City, and best Poland gilt to club, of Plum Creek, was only organized this spring, but its predecessor of the same name had a fine club record, and doubtless the new club will show more activity before long, and we will be looking for their activity card with plenty of achievements on it at next years county fair. The Irvington Wide-Awake club, with 29 members, must be the largest of the clubs, the president is Elsie Egel. They had a good record he owner contemplates that roof vith a thought of reshingllng his eye must also read the sign sug- •esting that lumber yard as t?KJ Jlace -to get the shingles. Henry Sunken, northwest of Titonka, has bought and will take over next March the 80 acres owned by Mrs. Simon BeVgman, which he has 'ented and operated for the past 17 years. Mr. Sunken is to pay $75 an acre. Pie and the good wife have occupied the farm since they were married. Mrs. Sunken is a daughter of Mrs. Bergman. The couple have a boy, Simon, who is 16, and a girl, Lena, who is 12 years of age. There are all necessary buildings on the farm. Henry, who came from Germany when he was two years old, also rents 80 other acres which he farms. , B. H. Meyer, of German Valley, showed us a newspaper item in his Grundy Centei paper lisUhg nine recent farm land sales for price per acre of $100. ?135.25, $105, $200, $168.75, $llcK>, $150, and $-200 respectively.
