Thc couple were married last June ,and their now homo is just across a section of land from the bride's home. Since their marriage thc young fo'ks have lived at the old Maass hem-nstead a little way north, where Mr. Manss has farmed with his brothers, with their mother keeping house for them. The new house has oirht rooms and bath, and a full tilo bnsemont. In the basement is •\ large square cistern built right t:nd-r thc. kitchen. The house is <niBhe.-| with modern built-in fur- r'.ti;re ana conveniences. Aa thc lo• alien Is on land where-no build- beets into a wagon driven alongside.

Mr. O:i):igstoo has 37 acres In beots, and estimated the yield at 13 to 15 tons an acre. At the Wm. Shutjer home north of AVesley we got a look at young Billy, now age two and weighing 28 jounds.

Tt would )c profitable for more farmers if .hey coii'.d also "pick out" sows .hut would average ten pigs a litter, and then give them the care that would enable them to do it. Whcn Mr. Oswald came to. this country he worked two years for his uncle, Ole Ness, and then started farming for himself. His home In Norway was stavanger, on the southwest coast. If we remember rightly we have mentioned Lars Loge, as also coming from this section of Norway. Mr. and Mrs. Oswald have three boys, the oldest 11, and two girls, the oldest 112.

Charles Larson, near Burt, was busy using a big tractor and grinder when we called last Saturday, and said he grinds feed now for hogs, horses, and calves. He has used the machine about a year. More and more use of ground feed is evident each year., A farmer, who desires to make a change, wants to trade 160 acres of land with a good set of buildings, a well and other improvements ,for land without buildings. The farm is in north Kossuth, where crops are excellent this season. There is only $38 an acre of mortgage on the land. Any one interested should inquire of this writer. Guy Diamond, north of Sexton, had husked his first seven 80 : rod rows, and had probably 36 bushels of corn in the wagon when we caroe that way a week ago. Mr. Diamond figured nine of his rows would make an acre, which would give a yield of 40 bushels »n acre. Mr. Diamond was satisfied as tp crop yields on his farm, but would like to see some im- pvovement in prices. The crop yields are something a good farmer can at least partly contrplr tout prices are another story.
