Elmer Hagedorrr ia the tenant. We do not know whether this Is a reasonable time to sell land. We all feel that land is surely due for an upturn in price. However, we do know that we cannot hold this land. We are too far away from it and the cost of supervision is too great. Consequently, we propose to sell this farm and any other lands that we may have, just as rapidly aa we can do so. Kossuth county is rated as one of the richest counties In Iowa and one of the finest farm- Ing sections In the agricultural world. We do know that it has so much good land that at times we lose sight of the fact that only a llt- ,tle of this nation is as really worth while. This particular farm is well located being right on U. S; Highway No. 169. Thefclmprovemeqts- are fairly.gosd. There is a real good barn and good crib and other outbuildings. The h6use is only fair. .There is a very -fine grove and other improvements will show for themselves. The land is well drained. Heavy rains the last of Maj? did not damage this tract. Our bank is in position to sell this land. It is clear of incumbrance. We are able to make good terms. The man buying land today will have reason to congratulate himself in after years. Fortunes will be built again put of the increase in land values, but only the man who has title to a farm can benefit. Look this farm over. Consult with your own real estate broker if you wish, or ask the men who are regularly employed by this bank. Mr. Fred Meredith will be at Elmore and..., nearby towns some days before sale, Discuss this farm with Elmer Hagedorn,, who is the tenant.

Judging from the number, of sheep at A. J. Brown's, south of Algona, the farm might be a Shropshire headquarters instead of the home of th% Guernsey. He and the boys, tonrerer, stai have as many Guern- seys as ever. Back of .the big barn, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. LJkeshave live in the tenant house. In front of the horse barn A.

This young man is the first boy in John's family, but he has two sisters, two and seven years old. Mrs. Brown was Myrtle Peterson before marriage, and she was lor a time a nurse in the Algona hospital. Her •folks live at Brltt. At the farm, home of another son, Ralph, the day previous, we had seen him set off a charge .of dynamite which blew the last of two big niggerheads -out of a cornfield; that Is to say the charge blew the big stone out of the ground, but two sticks and a half of dynamite failed to break It open. On the next farm east, where the Wald- schmldts farmed. last year, a new addition to'the Brown clan in Cresco township is now operating, a cousin of the Brown brothers, Bert H, Brown, who.moved oown from Minnesota this spring.'".Bert is married and has a son Robert, 6. Mrs. Brown was a South Dakota girl. Bert was born on the farm where Carl now operates, and his father, Wilson Brown, was a brother of A.
