Olsen, farming couth- west of Ledyard, tended 175 acres of corn and 110 acres of oata alone this season. He expects that familiarity and experience in using the power equipment will enable him to tend 200 acres of corn alone next season, and Is making his plans accordingly. Mr. Olson said he had some delays this year hecause of machinery adjustments. We were interested to know how many days he used a tractor this season, as this is where tractor operation costs are kept clown. Mr. Olsen took down the Eight Join Metliodlst Church— Young people from the Cntechisn class jofned the Methodist churc Sunday. They were Vernelle Zwei fel, Harold, Fern, and Mildre Krantz, Wilbur Schram, Pearl Grif fin, Mrs. Nora Gilbertson, and Bar bara Ball. Mr. and Mrs. Dunmire coach of the school, and Mr. an Mrs. Hoon, Mr. Hoon being superin tendent of schools here, had lettei transferred to this church and join ed Sunday. calendar, and figured up "0 days use, and said he expected to use the machine 15 more days in pulling a corn picker. That would make 85 days of tractor operation. Mr. Isen figured he would at this rate se his tractor 610 days in six years. If he charged the whole tractor ost, $750, back to these six years, ie cost would be about $1.50 a day, r 15c an hour. Mr. Olsen Is basing is figures at 20c an hour, which lakes a liberal allowance for taxes, epalrs, and interest on money in- estcd In the machine. He figures uel and lubricating oil at 20c an our, and says he can produce corn t 35c a bushel with a $7 an acre ent charge. The calendar record was inter sting to read between the lines. On lays when less than ten hours use of tractor were recorded, mentions vere found of manure hauling, fence JUildlng, gate making, etc. Fre ciuently an entry read, "changed oil," or other care of tractor. Mr Olsen said he believed tractor ma chinery for raising corn is not prac tical in hilly country. However, w noticed that tractors are used in th Mississippi river country, wher hills are the rule. He says a trac tor is hard to handle in peat ground Mr. Olsen said he can cultivat corn with a tractor whenever th field is dry enough to use horse? He says horses are used occasional! because he has the horses and fe they needed some work. The horses are cheap, however, and are fed al- won a senior grand champion, one junior champion, two firsts, four seconds, mid five thirds. There were four herds competing in Hamp- shlres. B. A. Taylor, of Burt, showed 12 head of Chester Whites, and won four firsts, four seconds, and three thirds. Bert Geerdes, of Lakota., here for the third year with his big type Spotted Polands, showed 23 head to win two firsts, a champion, four seconds and three thirds. He had two other strong herds to compete with. Mr. Ocerdes farms three and a half miles south and a. mile and a quarter east of Lakota. We noticed Dr. Harry McCorkle of Algona, busy around the Me at the fair. He becomes assistant cashier of the State bank. J. F. Sullivan, who has been president of the Farmers bank, retires from banking. The change, giving Ledyard one strong well-managed bank, is appreciated by the Ledyard community for better service will result. L. W. Weimer, cashier of the State bank ha« 40 years experience In the bank and Is highly regarded as a conservative banker throughout his community. The decision to merge the two institutions has been considered for some time, as it has been rea- listed that there was not enough business at Ledyard to support two banking houses. Good business demanded the merger, and the results are certain to be for the best inter-1 (.'Bt of the town.

Mr. and Mrs. Olsen are both young folks. They came here from Hamilton county. AVe like 'the idea of trying out 11.75 acres of corn and HO acres of small grain to get machinery adjusted and learn how to run it as well as becoming acquainted with the land. That is the way big business does it. A careful start, then a gradual stepping up of the production till maximum efficiency is reached. Mr. Olsen's records show that he plowed 170 acres of ground in 20 'days, and extra long hours were not the rule. He spent 36 tractor days preparing the ground, planting, cultivating, etc. Weeds were kept down well except in a part of the field where time was lost learning to adjust tractor and machinery. Straight cross checks are necessary, but the four row tractor -cultivator can cultivate wherever a two row horse drawn cultivation could 'operate. The tractor was used 14 days seeding and harvesting the 110 acres of oats. Mr. Olsen expects a yield of 30 to 30 bushels of corn to the acre, and expects to average 35 bushels on the 175 acres which he grew alone. Some Prize Winners. Last week we printed a list of county fair winners. Some of the Kossuth county farmers who had for large exhibits and added to the success of the fair Include C. R. Schoby of Bode who showed 10 head of Holsteins, and took five firsts, five seconds, two thirds, and two champions. Mr. Schoby has showed purebreds at Kossuth for the past three years. P. W- Reese & Son, of Elmore, showed 112 Herefords and took eight latter's wife, north of Titonka farmers, drove to Des Molnes September 8, and Dick was t 0 so through a hospital there for an overhauling to improve Ills health. They were to come back next day. We hope Dick will find how to regain his health, which has appeared robust till this summer. H. R. Waterbury. who operates Cayou pitched the entire game. Lone Rock tied Algona in the ninth inn- Ing, and it took 11 more Innings to play off the tie. Lone Rock had 10 ills, and Algona, 13. Sims secured a home run. The battery for Lone Rock was Sims and Hancock; for Algona, Cayou and O'Brien. Storm Damages Two Haras— A terrific wind storm Saturday evening moved the barns off the foundations at the John Segebarth and B. C. Bierstedt farms. Minor damage was done at other places in this vicinity. Other Lone Rock. The Rev. S. M. Gladstone and P. M. Chrlstensen drove to Des Moines Tuesday, and Beulah Gladstone accompanied them to Ames, where she spent the day visiting her friend, Vera Morris. Marietta Christensen returned from Des Moines with them to spend a few days at the parental home. Delmar Fisher was at Window, Minn., last week. His brother ^Harold, who had bogs shown at the fair there, won five blue ribbons. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Paine and on some of the Goodwin brothers' land near the old Bancroft lake site, has part, of the lake bed planted to potatoes and is harvesting some good ones.

These men have shown at Kossuth fair for three years. Claude'Reese was in charge of the herd. P, M. Christensen & Son, of Lone Rock, showed 12 head of Herefords and won seven firsts, seven seconds, four thirds, three champions, and aged bull grand champion. Wm. Price Brown was in charge of the herd, and also showed another herd for the Christensens at Mason City fair the same week and took a fair share of the prize money. Peter Erpelding, of Bode, was on hand at the county fair to see his two boys and a girl win several prizes with their baby beef. Mr. Erpelding bought the beef calves for his children, and they raised the stock in a manner that was a credit to both themselves and Dad. * Warren Deibler, of Swea City, a jolly bachelor who farms west of that town, furnished the stock truck that brought the pig club stock to the fair, - . . Lloyd Wellendorf, formerly one of the leading Duroc breeders of Iowa, but now growing fine White Leghorns, after a trip through the swine pavilion at the lair said, "This year's hog exhibit is one of the best I have ever seen at any county fair." E. H. Kahl, of Lakota, showed seven of his fine Chester White hogs and won two grand champions, two junior and one senior champion, five firsts, and two seconds. He had two .other herds cpmpeting against him. The Kahl hogs,are the extreme big type. Harold Fischer, of Swea. City, showed 14 head of Hfampshtres and We noticed that Mrs. Mabel Mino, who farms in Grant township near the old and now dried up Bancroft lake, had the ashes from a burned barn in her yard east of the house, and. we asked about it. The fire was August 8, and in addition to hay, harness, and other contents of ( the barn, two horses, a cow, calf, and a sheep were burned to death. Mrs. Mino, who has successfully raised a family of farmer boys and girls, is a good business woman, and had her stock protected by insurance, so the loss by fire was less than might have been. The crop report for Iowa as estimated September 1 gave early potatoes 43% and late 42% of normal- Apples are 50% lower also. Potato production in Iowa is indicated as three and a half million bushels compared to more than five million bushels last year. The corn crop for Iowa is estimated at eight percent lower than the ten year average. In the nation the total yield is forecast at less than two per cent below the five year average. All small grain yields are below the ten year average. In studying reports of crop conditions it is important to watch figures for both the nation and Iowa. It is wise to consider world figures also in estimating what the price may be. L. C. Strand, buttermaker at the Ledyard Farmers Cooperative cream_ ery for the past five years, says butter production at the creamery was four or five tubs a month higher this year than ,last year up to June. The two months of June and July were below last year, but August this year one'tub ahead of Au- Forest Paine came Thursday from Wisconsin to visit at the Mrs. Lillian Worthington home.

A GOOD PLACE TO TRADE Bjustrom's ALGONA HOBARTOff "Why My .Next Car will be A FORD" WHEN you buy a Ford there are two things you never have- to worry about. One is reliability. The other is long life. Here's an interesting letter from a Ford owner in North Carolina: "My Ford was purchased Hay 8, 1928, and has been ran 121,767 miles. It has never stopped on the road for repairs of any kind what., eoever except puncture*. "The brakes were relined at 101,000 miles. My gas mileage averaged 21 miles to the gallon, and on tires, 19,000 miles per tire. I travel over all kinds of road conditions—mountainous and flat. "I consider this a wonderful record and I assure you my next car will also be a Ford." This is just one of many tributes to the reliability and l*ng life of the Ford. A Ford owner in Iowa tells of driving; his Ford 73,000 miles in a single year. Another writes of 120,000 miles of good service. Think ahead when you are considering the purchase of an automobile and consider what it will be like after thou* sands of miles of driving. Will you still be satisfied? Will you still say "it's a great car"? t If it's a Ford, you know everything will be O. K, It wU| be taking you there and back in good style, just as H IMP always done. And you will have saved many important, worth-while dollars in cost of operation and Upkeep aju4 low yearly depreciation.
