There were 29 of the 30 members present, and each brought a favorite recipe to put in the re- oftener than fanners who buy land instead of renting It. Some one has said that If a man >y reporting for duty at ten o'clock hat evening on his baggage and ex- iress job at the railroad depot. An owner of a large xvheat ranch in Canada heard of his working ability nnd decided he would make a good farmer. Accordingly cousin went to Canada, and "worked himself half to death the first three years a farming." The point we want to stress is that this man found not one job, but three jobs at a time when many other people were out of work. Even In times like this, there are many jobs waiting to be done if some one will discover and do them. It may be necessary to sell some one on the need for having the work done, but gosh, jobs are not brought to us on a platter now as In boom times; neither Is any other kind of trade, business, or opportunity for that matter. There Is a good story in the December American magazine on procedure in looking for jobs. At D. C. Garner's. D. C. Gardner, northwest of Al- «cna, November 6 finished picking 00 acres o£ corn this season that averaged 50 bushels an acre. He saved 80 spring pigs from 13 litters and 2G more summer pigs from five other litters. His 21 ewes raised 30 lambs that now average about 80 pounds at six months. He says the sheep can be fed cheaply. The spring pigs' average 125 pounds at schools of her township, being secretary of the district, and Mr. Gardner is a school director. Mrs. Gardner said Union township schools won many of the prizes offered by the county fair for work done in the schools. Her own children were among the winners, Leona, of the seventh grade winning a second on a map showing locations of state parks, and Trella won on a poster. The Gardner school, taught by Mrs. Qulnten Bjustrom, has only cows, rotating crops to clover, corn, and oats, and the premises nre being repaired and built- up at the same time. The barn has been rebuilt and painted. A new double corn crib has been built, several hundred rods of fence have been put In, five portable two pen hog houses have been built In addition to' the 60 xlfl stationary hog house. The dwelling has been raised, placed on a basement and foundation, and repaired and remodeled. Mr. Plum has 320 acres here instead of 240 ten- pupils, but won two firsts and acreg fts at Lu V erne. n the :iys pays what he day It is due, no one will ever know how much money he is worth, may have 50 cents left clpe cabinet Mrs. Worley had given: n ^, the honoree.

The former Pat Leonard farm, now owned by Aetna Insurance company, and one of the many farms managed for the company by Frank Barker, former county agent, Is being Improved rapidly. Fred Plumb, who In Farm Bureau work In Lu Verne township was associated with Mr. Barker while the latter was County agent, now rents the farm, and is managing his business In the same thorough way that character. Ized his farming: while on a stock share lease with State Veterinarian Price In Lu Verne township. Mr. Plumb operated the Price farm eight years while the farm was being- Improved and built up. His 147 acres of corn averaged 45 bushels an acre. It has happened this year, as was the case when we nterviewed him one other year, that he has. same number of spring pigs saved as acres of corn. The 147 pigs came from 10 litters, of which 12 were sows, seven gilts. Another 70 fall pigs were saved from 10 of the same sows that farrowed spring pigs. There are 27 cattle, of which 10 are milk cows. One son, One of the things we noticed was a way Mr. Plumb has of providing his hogs with automatic waterers. He has oil barrels with sections of Inch pipe fixed in the end faucet hole of the barrel. The bung hole Is also made air tight. The sec tlon of pipe is bent so when the barrel is filled with water and set near the hog trough the lower end of the pipe will be in the trough, and will allow the trough td fill up to the point -where the water fowl meets the discharge pipe and stopti the flow. When the hogs drink th« water, the water level .lowers and fresh water is again permitted t<* run, filling the trough again, Mr. Plumb has several barrels fixed In this way.

Whenever someone in town -says he is unable to find work, or has been idle for long periods, we are reminded of a cousin who lived at Mason City and held down three full time jobs at one time. During the night he was night express and baggage handler at a local railroad, and also got all the sleep he allowed himself. He placed his couch at the depot In a position so that the light from the headlamp of incoming trains on the passenger track would wake him to duty, slept with his clothing on and so got in all the work required to keep his name drawing pay * the railroad. puring the day he worked hours as gardner, cared for the furnace, carried out the ashes, washed windows, changed storm windows to screens, pumped softer ft-om o , the cistern to the tank In the attic, cared for 9, horse and ft do &- ana tended the garden *»<* shrubbery, s s lso *»w * £ »" 1 etc. For this us also *»w * DEMONSTRATION BY Miss Leona M.
