C. O. Peterson, Swea City, ormer supervisor, will treat'all seed otatoes with formaldehyde to pre- ent scab. The county agent visited a wlnd- reak started last week at the Geo. C.

Mr. Leaverton spent ,the day with Ir. Thies, buttermaker at Bancroft, irnl they started a new dairy calf club with five members. Some boys >lan to carry a pig club project to help take care of the purchase price of their dairy calves next spring. This is a new club wi,th plenty of enthusiasm, and with Its good leaders, Mr. Thies and Doctor Weber, it vlll probably give some of the older clubs a run for their money' next 'all. At W. J. Bourne's farm near L,one ^ock Bates Stott and the neigh 1 - 5ors, with Otto Laabs' horses and the Will Dodds outfit, gave one of the best multiple-hitch demonstrations Harry Linn, who was on hand to talk horses, had ever attended. Iveryone was given an opportunity to drive the size of hitch he wanted, ncludlng a, G, and 8-horse outfits. The German township girls had a jood program and eats for a township 'Farm Bureau meeting at the tenter schoolhouse, and young folks of the neighborhood furnished musical numbers. Judge Quarton talked on community activities, and about 80 people attended. The county weed control program was explained by the county agent. Tliiirsdiir, April 31. Doctor Simonsen, of Quimby, conducted a school on hog cholera at Swea City. Donald Lyons', Elmore, has treated enough flax seed to sow 18 acres, and will cooperate with R. H. Porter,'Ames, in gathering spee'.al data on the value of Ceresan dust In the control of flax disease. Mr. Lyons has sold Bison flax seed to a number of farmers who are growin as a cash crop. A farmer moving In by truck from Minnesota neglected to • have his cows blood tested for Bans'e disease in compliance with the Iowa law, and the herd is now quarantined until blood samples sent to the state laboratory have been tested. Cows are not condemned as with TB, but positive cows will have to be cold as soon ae possible. The county agent missed a district buttermaUers' meeting at Tltonka, but he will bet it meant one more step towards a higher quality of butter. Friday, April «. Mr. Barton, of Tltonka, has an rx- cellent pig crop, but some of lh°. pigs are "shakers." Doctor Price, who visited the place, says the condition is usually caused by the sow'e diet but is seldom fatal, as the pigs generally outgrow it. On a rented quarter of this land is some hot alkali that will probably be used, as one of the county planter attachment fertilizer and corn demonstration plots this season. Three insurance company farm managers came to the Farm Bureau office, and to listen to their talk on weeds and alfalfa It seems that their M« Cha, Ptoth ' Sns - PIathe ' the 1 ex-j periences.

A feature of special Interest was a demonstration of the usefulness of project by the exhibition of an old rocking chair which had been refinlshed, mended, recaned, and thus being restored to usefulness. Sylvia Abbas did the work. Mary Tjaden was hostess to the our visit there was still snow on the north side of the bluffs along the river. Ralph remarked that the family had been getting Ice from the drifts to freeze ice cream. We called on Wilbur Dale, Lakota,, last week Monday, the man who runs the Princess cafe, and he has a good, clean place. While we were there George Heetland came j In, and lo he was wearing a straw!

At least one member of the club will enter a state 4-H.club forestry .contest.- The ten pictures • in this year's .picture memory contest .were studied. Officers were elected: president, Frieda Paelz; vice president, Lucille Calhoun; 'secretary-treasurer, Helen Paetz; historian, Mary Tjaden; newspaper reporter, Ida Mae Gardner. . ••• Fifteen women met at Mrs. Jack every.-season. George operates a farmers' produce station at Lakota, | and he said business was "ganz j gut" in spite of the fact that the price, of egge was "rotten." 'Last week .Wednesday morning we called at the John Behrends home, two miles west and one-half j mile north of Seneca. Everybody up|J tha,t way was complaining of a!| rather chilly, damp spring. Thei| Behrends daughter Lita, 14, was sick with pneumonia, and her doc-1 tor had reported her fever that Devine's for a final lesson on applied morning as 103.

As an introduction a group pf pictures was shown, following which there was a discussion of the five fundamental principles" of design: color, balance, rhythm, harmony, and Achievement day plans proportion, were dls- weed soil- their years VI- companles are on i a definite control program, also on a .building program to , make farms worth owning a few from now. The George Peterson plot at tonka gives some results with potash on alkali last fall, where amounts from 100 ,to 1,000 pounds an acre of potash were applied for core. A 1,000-lb. Plot weighed 94 an acre last fall. The plot will be continued, with no further application of potash, to determine Iow lon the various rates of appli- Ijow long cussed, and a meeting was set for Wednesday afternoon, May 18, at Mrs. A. R. Willrett's, when Achievement day posters .will be made and reports checked. Women who at- { tended were' Mesdames A. R, Willrett, H. E"Luedtke, George Boettcher, TJ. J. Dreyer, E. J. Frank, Chas. H. Newel, Geo. Jentz, W. J. Cotton, E. .R. Schlel, Herman Dreyer, Mrs. Wll Weisbrod, Arthur Krause, and Walter Jentz; and Lorena and Alice Dreyer. Shows Multiple Hltcli. H. D. Linn, secretary of the Horse & 'Mule Breeders' aesociation, was in the county laet .week, and conducted a multiple-hitch demonstration at the W. J, Bourne farm in Union township. Mr. Bourne and his neighbors, with the assistance of Bates Stott, had assembled three plowing outfits, including one 8-horee, 3-bottom tractor plow outfit, with horses hitched four abreast and one '5-horee 2 -bottom outfit with horses arrang>- ed three in the lead with two next the plow. Thie method of hitching allows the horses more freedom in working and turning, the eveners ave more flexible, adjusting readily to the size of the horse for correct line of draft, and by using buck ropes and lead chains the driver is able to handle his team readily with only two lines, More than SO farmers attended the demonstration, and a- good-sized strip of plowing was 'finished for Mr. Bourne 'by the men who • the different outfits. . ilr. Linn, gave a talk on horses, and emphasized the fact that the market on ordinary farm horses has advanced In the face of declining prices in qther Jines. Mr. Wnn anticipates a shortage of good work horses for" several years, and hp encouraging the raising of colts to the, demand. enough to make the Behrende family pessimistic not only about the weather but everything else. When we called at Andrew' Kading's, south of Fenton, Saturday, we learned that they were among the first hereabouts to ship baby chicks to other states 22 years ago. At that time they received 16c each, later as high as 22c. They hatch chicks with setting hens, and now have 42 hens on nests. Mr. Cading showed us how valuable the Ames college service is to farmers n testing grain for weed seeds. Mr. Kading believes in raising good cows. He has 20 head of the milk- ng strain of shorthorns, and said he had sold eight yearling bulls laet vjnter. -Something new to us in rrlnding corncobs for brooder house loor.s Instead of using peat moss shipped from Germany can be seen at the -Hading farm. These ground cobs make a good covering which keeps baby chicks on a dry, clean floor. •Bancroft has what we 'believe to be the first and only Farmers' Unon local in Kossuth; At an April 19 meeting at Robert -Eichentoerg- ers 33 persons attended.
