George' Judlsch, Ames, member of the U. S. Pharmacopoeia,' standard of pharmacy practice in the United States, spoke on the history and some of the practices in'Tiharmacy. Mr. Judlsch said pharmacy has been practiced for centuries. The compounding of drugs, in fact, predated the pyramids. The first great chemist, was Hippocrates, who also is credited with founding the medical profession. 'Pharmacy has evolved through many weird and outlandish practices to its . present state, where standards are known and established. The first book • on pharmacy was issued in London in 1618, and among many remedies it gave was a compound of cat oil, puppy fat, and angleworm oil as a remedy for stiff joints. Other "remedies" as peculiar were'common. This Is riot strange, when it is considered that.both medicine and pharmacy were for many generations the footballs of superstition and religion. People used, .certain Shrubs or remedies, sometimes injurious, because it was customary. Sick people, in the olden days, iwere supposed to be afflicted by evil spirits or devils, and nauseating, foul, and ill-smelling and tasting concoctions were used to force the devil or evil spirits out. The modern pharmacist must know the properties of drugs, their reactions, the proper dosage,- even the causes of disease, in order to practice his profession successfully. He must even Know the symptoms of 'ordinary disease, for he often asked for advice on sickroom troubles, though he must at the same time beware of Invading the field which belongs to the physician, B.

Through three cow- testirig ''associations which'- have helped with records covering more than 3,000 cows in "Kossuth many stories have come to light of success achieved in the dairy barn that read like fiction. The January report of No. 1 association shows 241 cows in and 50 dry. The 291 cows averaged 645 pounds of milk and 25.7 pounds ol fat. The two high herds are owned by Stoutenberg & Jones, grade Guernseys, 14 cows, average fat 47.0 Ibs,, and William Koestler, purebred Holsteins, 15 cows, average fat 44.9 Ibs. There are 31 cows producing between 40 and 49 Ibs. of butterfat; 15 cows, 60 to 59 Ibs.; seven cows, 60 to 69 Ibs.; and 6 cows, 70 to 79 Ibs. Sixteen members fed alfalfa hay, one soybean hay, 13 silage, 15 high protein concentrates, such as linseed oil meal, cottonseed meal, and cracked soy beans. Kossuth dairy farmers .who are members of the No. 1 cow-testing association are taking part in statewide movement for herdrslre improvement, according to Paul Leaverton, cow tester, This movement is a better sire contest conducted by the dairy extension service of Iowa State college and is now in its third year. According to Earl Schultz, dairy specialist at Ames in charge of the contest, 64 associations, including the local one, are entered this year. • THREE FARM AUCTIONS TO HE HEU NEXT WEEK 'Three farm sales are -advertised tor next week, W, E.

ANNUAL MEET OF CREAMERY ATTRACTS 360 Patrons, Management are Lauded by Speakers. More than 360 farmers and Algona business men were served by the Baptist Aid at the annual banquet of the Algona creamery Saturday In the new high school gymnasium. During dinner the' high school band, under the direction of D. Wane Collins, played in the balcony. •Following the banquet the .creamery patrons adjourned to the auditorium, where the annual business meeting was held. A. ,T. Keen and N. A. Smith were reelected directors, and the same officers were reelected as follows: Mr. Keen, president; Harry Bode, vice president; M. P. Christiansen, secretary. Other directors are Geo. W. Godfrey and C. R. Schoby. Mason Cl<yann Speak. - Talks were given by O. K. Stro- vick, secretary of the Iowa; State Brand Creamery association at Mason City; A. W. Rudnick, Ames; and Roy Strovick, Mason City, who became manager of the state brand plant on January 1. Reports • were read by officers. In their talks all of the outside speakers paid high tribute to the outstanding business judgment of the management of the creamery and the manner in which patrons and the public generally have backed up the creamery, which is one of the leading institutions of the Al! gona community. Mr. Rudnick, who is associated with the Extension department of the State college • at Ames, said the finest milk, with the most satisfactory bacteria count, came from Algona creamery patrons. •;•••'. Creamery Is Progressive. The Algona creamery, Mr, Rudnick continued, and the patrons have been progressive and have been 'interested in' bettering their' product, which now is bringing back higher returns as;a reward. Algona milk, supplied to Algona by the creamery, has a reputation of being among the best in the state. Mr. Rudnick said he >knew of-traveling men who ordinarily will not drink milk with meals for fear it Is not pure who order It at cafes and restaurants here. Mr. Rudnick suggested that signs should be posted in and around Algona to advise that good , milk is available here. The signs, he thought, ought to be similar to what are used by many towns to boast of good water. Volume Is Doubled. The Mason City speakers devoted their talks to lauding the creamery for its aid in establishing and help- Ing to maintain the high standard of Iowa state brand butter. This has earned results in premium prices and it thus enables patrons to receive higher prices for their cream. p"ald for the butter in all. ; . markets, Despite the hard times and low prices of butterfat the creamery made money in 1931, the reason for which is seen in an enormous increase in volume of 'butter manufactured. In 1930 the total number of pounds manufactured was 493,000, but the total jumped 50 . per cent, or to 744,000 pounds, In 1931, The annual statement of the creamery Is printed on page 2 of this week's Advance, and It shows milk receipts of 2,135,000 pounds, COUNTY TILT PAIRINGS TO BE MADE MONDAY Seneca, Feb. 2—At the schoolmasters' club, meeting Monday night it was decided to start the boys' county tournament Friday afternoon with three games, and . three in the evening, This will leave two games on Saturday afternoon and In the evening.

The record was set Sunday, when Old Man Winter, pushed the, mercury down, to-19 below. It did not rise abovo 6 below Saturday and three below Sunday. A total of 41 inches of snow this winter has resulted in only a little frost in the ground. The snow has been a covering since the first of the year, and has acted as a blanket to keep the frost out. Temperatures during December before the snow blanket fell were not low enough to cause the frost to go into the ground. The 41 inches of snow during December and January amounted to four and two-tenths inches of water when melted. This is above normal and points to plenty of moisture this spring. Only about 12 inches of snow remains as much has melted. Sunshine here Tuesday afternoon indicated that the groundhog saw his shadow clearly and that returned to his den for six more weeks of wintry weather. The temperature record last week follows: January 26 (rainfall, .33)_35 January 27 . 34 January 28 32 January 29 (rainfall, ,14)_30 January 30 -6 January 31 -3 February 1 (rainfall, .13)_20 February 2 (rainfall, .01).21 Algona Markets 24 11 20 -9 -18 -19 -7 12 Recipients of Poor Relief to . Be Published From now. on board proceedings published in the official papers will carry the, names of all persons obtaining poor relief. This action has been taken by the board of supervisors in an effort to stem a tide of applications which has put the poor •fund in the red and threatens to send it to new low depths. It is impossible ;;.to thoroughly check every application to be certain that there is a legitimate call for aid. Too many people, it is believed, have been calling on the county for aid when it is not necessary. These people have been using the poor fund to conserve their own money, which they spend for amusements and luxuries. There are, of course, many worthy cases, and the board regrets the publicity they will have to receive' along with others, However, the board feels that it is just that taxpayers know whom they are helping support, and also hopes that by this means discover abuses which may be reported. The amount opposite names in the proceedings will not necessarily mean that the same sum is allowed every month. Bills may be carried by merchants for several. 'weeks or months before being presented for payment. ., , UVERMORE, LOCALS TO PLAY HERE TOMORROW A basketball game Is scheduled with Liverrnore on the local high school floor tomorrow evening, The high school team scrimmaged with the post-graduate team Friday and lost, 23-17, but won in another game Tuesday evening. A game here Friday night with Eagle Grove had been called off -because the Eagle Grove schools were closed during a flu epidemic. The basketball schedule for the rest of the season calls for three more games on the local floor and two away: Feb. 5—Llvermore, here. Feb. 9—Swea City, there. Feb. 12—Emmetsburg, here, Feb. 19—Webster City, there. Feb. 26—Humboldt, here. On March S-4-5 a district tournament will take place here, and plans to entertain spectators include bleachers along the north wall of thp pymnasium to seat 250 persons. More seating capacity is also planned by building a tier platform for chairs along the south wall. This adds to the present seating capacity by more than 400 seats.

When help arrived the building was so filled with smoke that nothing could be -saved. An over-heated furnace or electric wiring is believed to have been the cause. JTfte building was built of brick, which saved the adjoining 'buildlnge, both* wooden structures. Fire engines from Blue Earth, Ledyard, and Armstrong came to help fight the fire. The floor collapsed after, the .fire had burned some time, and the stock and fixtures fell into the basement. After the ; fire had been put out there was nearly five feet of water in .. the basement.

Fire early last Thursday mornlnff gutted the basement of the TfnA Behlmer candy kitchen, forced trons to leave State's cafe, next east, and caused smoke damage In. the cafe, the Long grocery and the Borchardt drug store, well as in office rooms upstairs bk all three buildings. The fire started in the west cen- ' tral part of the Behlmer basement;, and it is believed to have been caused by defective wiring. Shortly after 6 o'clock Georg* Romer, G. W. Gray, and H. If. Mathes, who. were in the cafe, heard: 1 the cafe cat, called "Louie," making a fuss In the basement'"below. At first they paid little attention, but when the cat grew vociferous, they went to the basement to see What. was the matter. As soon as the* basement door was opened, emoks billowed out, arid with it cam* "Louie" at full speed. The cat disappeared down the alley and did not show up for the rest of the day, but was on duty again that night. , Smoke Hampers Firemen. The fire department was called out and the firemen arid trucks soon. arrived. The fire had evidently been " smouldering for some time, for th» .cafe basement was so filled wital smoke that no one could enter. Th» interior of the candy -kitchen - WMi filled with thick, oily smoke iwhicti kept the firemen out and compelftsf. them to shoot water Into the" build- " ing blindly. The ceiling in th* basement was a mass of flames, but jt was almost impossible to get at ft via the basement, and hole for th* hose had to be chopped In the floor. A nozzle device which had t not-been used before in years'was attached to the, hose. This sprayed water onwards arid sideways ,"ln a'radius «£• t several feet and the fire was in this way finally subdued. In the meantime smoke .had penetrated the cafe, the upstairs rooms; the grocery, and the drug star* four doors away,. though the damage at Borchardt's was slight. ) Three Stores Threatened. .'. At one time it appeared as If th* cafe, and possibly the grocery stora also,. would be devoured by . the- flames. -Cash, valuable papers, and, some moveable objects were carried out of the cafe. By 10 o'clock; bow- ever, the excitement was over and the cafe had resumed business. ' Mr. Behlmer's. loss was estimated at $1500 to $2000 and that of , C. -IE. Helse, owner of both the' Behlmer and cafe buildings at $1500. AH damage was covered by insurance. The cafe will have to be redecorated. at an estimated expense of • f 15ft.
