Morgan,' on Worster street, Algona, Is a good amateur photographer, and she has a well chceen set of views which she took while she and Mr. Morgan were on a trip to the west coast and went through the Yellowstone park region last June. She finishes her own prints and even uses stereotype plates to get a high gloss effect. Some of the views have excellent proportions and would make fine enlargements. The pictures show giant cacti, old bears with baby bears, and great redwood trees. One picture shows a couple of bears and their young raiding a lUnch box left on the -running board of a car. There also are many waterfall, mountain, and other scenic pictures. It Is fine to be a camera enthusiast in such surroundings as can be found on J a tour in the west. We made our annual visit to the Mrs. C. R. Lewis home on east Nebraska street one day last week, and found Mrs. Lewis, who now claims 87 years, in good health and spirits. She came to Algona 30 years ago, after having lived on a farm In this county "12 years. She still owns, another Irvlngton farm, occupied by Martin Becker. Mrs. Lewis's son the late Harry A. was an Irvington merchant many years, and later came to Algona and operated the store which Moe & SJogren now have: Mr. Lewis's husband Is remembered as the first man in Kossuth to use drain tile on farm' land, and he was one of the most enterprising and progressive farmers of his day.. He owned at different tlnies prior to his retirement various farms at Irvlngton, also in Burt township,, In Minnesota, and in Dakota. He and Mrs. Lewis retired in 1898 and moved 'to Algona, and since his death, Mrs. Lewis has ved alone. Harry died a number aged 13547.32 pounds milk and 675.05 pounds fat. Mr, Hobson's herd av eraged 3-84.7 pounds fat and 7,826 pounds milk laet year, and in 14,68 cow years averaged $38.41 profit above feed cost. The «est thing In the record made by the Hobson herd is the fact that the cows were almost all young ones, and such production as they have made' will probably Increase considerably with their maturing. To give an idea of the leading cows, we mention Sally, 2& yearri, $48.07 profit abov* feed cost; Jane, three years, 142.82: Daisy, three years, $66.86; Beauty, eight years, 441.02; Nig, three years, $50.92; and Peaches, three years, $65.48; all above feed cost.
