Think then, how many , times the Maytag will pay for Itself'through the years! Because this is no "one year" washer. It's a fact that Maytag washers have given service for the equivalent of - ('fifty —sixty •— seventy years " in the average home. Come in and learn how. little it will cost to own a Maytag.

They talked politics but it was In "deutsch" so it did not sound as had as It could In English. Mr. Klamp visited at Mood's grocery last week Monday; He has known'Mr. Hood for a number of years and every time we call at his store .it looks better. At one time Mr. Hood drove one of those Chalmers cars Mr. Klamp sold. Mr. Klamp called at J. J. McDonald's, three miles east of the Grant j school. Mr. McDonald Is farming acres, and was planting, corn. It was pretty hot to work in the field Saturday. Times had slowed up so 'badly, Mr. McDonald said, that when his dog chased a rabbit they walked rather than run. • AVell, both Mr. Payne and Mr. "not so good," but at least his bank was In good condition. A number of people from*. Portland township and a few from down this way have commented pleawure- ably that Mrs. A. A. Graham was back home from Florida. It Is doubtful If anyone In Portland township had so many friends as Mrs. Graham, who was born and raised in Portland, married and farmed there, helped bring many of the folks through tlrnee of sickness, and was called in when many of'the youngsters were born. She corresponded for this newspaper before moving to .Florida, and has been greatly missed since. She is still a comparatively young woman to have won such a place in the esteem of her neighbors over euch a wide territory. Mrs. Graham drove a car home from Florida for some people who were coming this way. We did.not learn who they were. One of the families visited down here was the J. T. Grahams, south of the fairgrounds. J. T. Is father of Mrs. Graham's bus- GEORGE HALL, 1878 WESLEY SETTLER DIES AA'esley, May 17—George B.

AVe will be glad to set out in the fields around home where we may hear about hard times, but at least do not have to listen to so many drought stories. At O. S. Lund's, at Bancroft, .Mr. Klamp found that' Mr. Lund has been section foreman on the Northwestern in Bancroft 20 years. They have recently received notice of a change, with a choice of either Fenton, *Lu Verne, or Dows. They re- great the change, for the]| have lived in Bancroft so long that they think it Is the best town in the world. Mrs. Lund added that she was feeling badly, for her garden had been-all -planted. The Lunds have a family of «ix girls and one boy. Seventy Grant township F. B. members enoyed a community program of unusual interest last Thursday evening at the Grant school.

Grant has a 100 per cent ural organization with both a men ,nd woman's project groups and -H clubs for both goys and glrla. The George Wickers, thre'e miles .ast and a half mile north of Swea 3ity, are new people Jri the neigh- orhood, moving In frqm Pocahontas. They have one daughter Geor- la, 9, two boys, Robert 7, and Gerld, 6. Gerald had a bad fall last vinter on frozen ground and hurt ils knee.

Mrs. Kuhn said she lived at Cedar Rapids be fore they were married ,last October Mrs. Kuhn has been away from lome since she wae eight years old She waa married before and has one son, 17, who is attending school. Sh is proud that her son took second In jumping in the state meet a Des Molnes, A> year ago he was on of the track stars that received a trip to Washington, D.

The farm suits her best, sh remarked. » < One pf the calls made l<*st wee ,,as at a home ust.west pf Chapii in Franklin county, south of Maso City. We 1 remembered that Walte Brandow, of Crescp,' had farmed • 1 that vicinity for several years, an inquired if the party knew of th Bran4ow family, W r e were tpld tha the next farm, up the road, wher we later called, had feeen owned; b the Brandpws. and Hater aold tp th present occvp<"»t toy them.

Graham home were Mr. and Mrs. .Merritt Porter, of Mitchellville. Folks, in town are beginning to tell of the farmer's troubles. We believe that is a good tfign, for when everyone begins to worry about a •oblem there is some hope that it ill be solved, the writer: One local man said "My brother-in-law band, who did not make the trip (..known ae the Lockridge farm, nine back from the south. Other visitors) m!les northwest of here. The other young men did not long remain. Mr. Hall worked on the William Ward fcti-m, and during 1879 and 1880 taught rural schools. He-was well educated, and in demand as a speaker at religious and other gatherings. He rented the.G. S. McPherson farm in 1881, and'.'a year or two later bought and moved to the farm in the same vicinity, which he owned till his death. He was married to Ida O. McPherson .October 36, 1881. Mrs. Hall died March 11, 1923. The family moved to AVesley in 1892, and Mr. Hall was for some time manager pf the Farmers' Alliance store. Later, he was for several years cashier of the Security bank of ' Wesley, of which Rodney,Hill) Brltt, was president. Some_years ago he returned to hie farm,"which he assisted in working till his health failed. It has of late been known : as - the'' - Hal! Bros., or Rodney Hall, farm. Mi- Hall was, a member of the Methodist church here, and: was long one ol its .most active and respected mem- bes. He served on various church boards, and was a ready and felicitous public speaker at church meetings. He is survived by five children: AValter, Dayton, O.; Leota, who teaches at New Rtchland, Minn.; De Etta, principal of schools at Forest City;-George, Chenoa, 111.; Rodney, Weeley. Three-Hurt in Car Crash— A group, composed of Mrs. George Hauptman, her mother, Mrs. Anton Goetz, and sisters, Hilda and Mrs Lorette Lloyd,' were Injured in a cai accident last .Thursday afternoon They were coming back from Al- old 1C hogs today, weighing about 500 Ins., and got only $96 for lem. The top price received was 2.90 a cw.t." That remark was made v a townsman who kno\vs nothing t>out farming, but he could graep le fact that loss had- been incurred y the brother-in-law who sold hogs o cheap. We have noticed that hen everyone begins to worry bout a problem something is likely o be done about It. We believe the nd of \he farmer's most pressing rouble, that Is, low prices for his roduce, may 'be near. Another,en- ouraglng sign comes in the news- aper business. Many newspapers re now making a determined effort oward Inceasing their circulation. his Indicates that the newspapers xpect an increased demand for ad- 'ertising to come soon. Just .to add me more encouraging word we night say that business, which usually holds only the position it may lave attained during a presidential ilectibn year, is likely to show ti-.ong increased activity following he November election. Something usually happens when the election las been settled, either we get worse ir better, and there seems to be no vay to go after this election except •pward. . We.ley Wingert were the battery.
