In 187-1, vith a brother, 17, and a sister, 15, he came overland to Sac county, and bought land east of which Nemaha s now located. It was a long trip in those days, when 25 miles a day ,vas good mileage. In 1886 Mr. McTigue was married to Bridget Hopkins, who survives. The family lived in Sac county till 1917, then moving to Palo Alto county, where they lived till a year ago when they moved to Fort Dodge.

He was active in all athletic events and was captain of the basketball team last year. During the summer of 1930 he attended Fort Snelling training camp. He became ill with pneumonia February 24, and has been unable to leave his bed since. He wore a cast from his hips to his toes, making it uncomfortable for him to sit up. For some time it was thought he would get better, but the last few months showed little improvement. He is survived by his parents, three brothers, Willis, Thomas, Patrick, and two sisters, Bernice and Gertrude. Honorary pallbearers were six cousins, Francis Farrell, Cletus Mosbach, Earl Fries, William Fude, Lawrence Karliske, and Bernard Doernine, and active pallbearers were Garnet McDonald, William Higgens, Raymond Higgins, Joseph.

Friday "night, after a rainy day's work, we arrived at O'Keefe hotel at Lakota with trousers just wet enough about the legs to make an attack of grip, or at least a bad cold, likely to follow our wetting. Says we to Landlord O'Keefe, "Too bad that you have not yet Installed Servidor service in your hostelry such as we are now accustomed to using at Des Moines and other large cities." Mr. O'Keefe asked how we would use the Servidor service In this emergency if available, and we explained we would put the wet trousers in the compartment of the Ser- vidor, then call a valet to come and get them, and with a hot iron press out all the wet that was about to make us catch cold. Says Manager O'Keefe, "We can do better than that. We will lend you a pair of trousers, fresh from the cleaners, and then pull wires to have the wet trousers pressed for you, while you sit down here in the varm comfortable lobby of our es- abllshment, and read the papers, or play checkers with myself, and otherwise enjoy yourself." Well, we did t and lost six straight games, which s no disgrace when playing with a shark at checkers such as Mr. O'Keefe is acknowledged to be. Lakota's new $45,000 school was to open last Monday. This is one of the finest schools in the county, a building that would have cost much more to build in boom times a few year? ago. We will try to get a description of the new school for use elsewhere in this week's issue of the paper, as we have been promised a Attend Cliurcli Dedication— A number from Whlttemore tended the dedication service of new Zion's Lutheran church at at- the Lu Verne Sunday. The Rev. L. Wltten burg is pastor. A German sermon was given in the morning by th Rev. H. Harms, of Davenport. Pastor Hesse, of Eldora, spoke • in the afternoon, and Pastor R. Kabelitz, of Fenton, in the evening. Mission Festival Comes Sunday— Announcement was made Sunday at St. Paul's Lutheran church that the annual Mission Festival will be held next Sunday in the church. The Rev. Mr. Fredrich, of Humboldt, will give the German sermon in the forenoon, and the Rev. Mr. Coleman, of Rolfe, will give the English sermon in the afternoon. Troves He Has Ulg I'limpklii— . Henry F. 'Schultz had told last chance to go through the building early this week. At Otto Swalve's. Otto Swalve, farming 555 acres j near the Ledyard town line, has 55 acres in sugar beets, and showed us a small patch near the house that he estimated would go 20 tons to the acre. A single beat taken from this patch weighed 22 pounds. Otto showed us that he could go into the patch most anywhere at the southwest corner and pull a 15 or 18 pound beet. A nearby cornfield was safe from frost, and would probably yield 45 to 45 bushels an acre on land that had formerly been in sugar beets. of Ledyard, will farm 1,400 acres of his own land next season, of which 700 acres will be in corn. This year he grew 365 acres of corn, 165 acres of barley, and had some of the other land rented out. He used one Farm- all outfit this season and plans to get two more of them before next season opens. The Farmall outfit included four-row planter and a four-row cultivator. Mr. Sullivan found it profitable to grow barley instead of oats, as he harvested 6,000 bushels of barley, and marketed It at 36 cents a bushel when oats were 16 cents. The barley, according to these figures, yielded better than 36 bushels to the acre. Large scale farming operation with power machinery certainly will be one of the ways that low farm prices will be net. Mr. Sullivan has demonstrated onsiderable ability in bringing new and into cultivation around Led- •ard, and now that he has retired rom his banking interests will be able to give full attention to farm- ng. Fred Laabs, north of Lakota farm- ir, plans to raise several acres of sugar beets next season. He says the sugar beet farmers are the only ones who are making any money this season. Fred had some water and musk melons floating in the cold water of the stock watering tank to keep cool, and opened one of each for the benefit of Editor Clemens find the writer. We took a look Into the hog barn, a tight draft-proof tile block structure where we saw 25 nice fall pigg saved from four sows. One of the sows, the smallest, had saved eight. Fred said 40 pigs had been saved from six sows In spring Personal Loans -Milch Cow Loans INCREASE TOUR DAIRY HERD WITH OUR cows assure a regular monthly Income.

This animal, weighing 1,900 in prime condition, is now a little thin from heavy field work. He requires a 27- inch collar. There was also a fine clean looking pair of mules, probably 1200 pounders, which Fred had raised himself. We noticed a tractor in the yard which would indicate plenty of power on the farm. Mrs. Laabs was Angle Smith, daughter of the Walter Smiths of Burt and Portland township. The couple have two fine healthy daughters, Pearl and Ellen, nine and five years. , At Ledyard we were noticing' the contractor out- One Store- One Wife There is a rumor out that we are going to run two stores. This is not so. In fact I have a heck of a time running one. One wife and one store is about all I can handle. We are going to move into the new location as soon as it is ready, which will be some time about October 19 to 21. • Gene is moving back from Britt and will take an interest in the new store with me. I want Gene back so that I can take life a little easier. Beginning October 1 and continuing up to Saturday night, October 17 we will make special low prices on everything in the store. I want to reduce the stock as much as possible before we move. The first seventeen days of October will be bargain days at Neville's Shoe Store " ALGONA, IOWA Obituary of Mrs. John Bonvrart— Mrs. John Banwart, former resident here, died at Anoka, Minn., late In August after .an illness weeks.

The various he had Holstein" grade calves in every available stall and pen, and pigs growing up all over the place. Now there are 51 head of Holsteins, and 200 to 250 hogs on the farm for the growing family to help care for. Otto averaged a little better than six pigs to the litter saved from 33 sows this year, and has five sows kept for fall farrow due about now. Of the 555 acres operated 1GO acres are owned and balance rented. A threshing outfit has been operated as a sideline for the last three years. Both Mr. and Mrs. Swalve have three children by a former marriage. These with their own make a family of seven girls and six boys, all good wagons, bunk houses, cook houses, etc., and the way they are built and painted always have a fascination for the writer. Lined up in parade the outfit must make an Imposing sight. The bunk, and cook wagons are painted like railway coaches, and some even have "observation" platforms on behind like the high-toned limited trains. Bach wagon has a name like a Pullman car, only the names are a bit less high brow. The No. 1 wagon is, "Boss 1 ' Cabin," No. 2 is "Mess house," and further designated "Wiggle In", No. .3 is "Cook's frORESl farmer-trained young know how to .give an folks who account of Cabin," the No. 4 is bunk, and No. 5 Home," No. 6 is 'Plow Shakers" is "Old Soldier's 'Buzzard's Roost."

FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Since the Roy A. Links moved to Ledyard from Algona we had not met Mr. Link. He is now interested in the garage business, and occupies a home near the business center of the town. Mr, Link was Nichols & Shepherd representative out of Algona for many years before he got into business for himself at Ledyard. His knowledge of tractors and power farming machinery should be valuable to farmers in that vicinity In the years ahead, when costs will have to be cut by more extensive use of power. We talked with Wm. Gary, elevator owner at Ledyard, and tried to figure out some way to beat the low price of grain by using some of his storage space in the big elevator, but William could not see how anything can be planned. He says grain may go up 10 cents a bushel or may go down just as much, and feels safest in playing the game down the middle of the road till some kind of Inquiry brought the information that this was the bunk house of the young lads who like to have a good time. Probably this wagon could be parked at a distance from the main camp if too much noise became evident around it. There are horses and mules in pasture, big road tractors and machinery, oil supply wagons, monster hayracks, one numbered 12, grain wagons, tool boxes, dump wagons, etc. We talked with Verne Oatley, who has been with the crew eight or ten years. He says he has been with the outfit since about the time it was gotten together. We have not. met Mr. Seifert as yet, but will look him up some day. Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota.
