At G. J. Schutjei-'s last Thursday ive found the men cultivating corn. When we called there early in the spring, Mrs. Schutjer had just hurt a foo.t badly and was going about on crutches. Since then she has recovered. The son George Jr. was about to cultivate corn, though perhaps should not work yet, for he had a hard fall last winter and burst his spleen. The doctors operated on him. and he Is now getting along well. 'We called Saturday at' iFred Seefeld's, three miles north of Wesley. Mr. arid Mrs. Keefeld have two daughters, one six. the other eight. The girls were staging a water battle. Each was in a tub of water, and with pails they were giving each other a water bath, clothes and all. i Mrs. Seefeld remarked that she had found many grasshopper eggs In her garden, and that on these warm days .they were hatching rapidly. 'Fred was finishing cultivating his corn for the frist time, and the use 100 Ibs. of dynamite. a charge to let us see He set off a stump blown into air. He has also been doing some new fencing, and the farm Is now well fenced. This year he plowed under 40 acres of sweet clover, on which was a nice stand for green manure.

B Cairy, of the Whittemore Champion who was killed in an automobile ac cident last spring. Many people have been watchinj progress of work being done by Wil Ham Aman at the corner of Colb and east State streets. He bough the big 2'/4-story Jasperson home built by Mrs. Jasperson's father, th late O. W. McMurray, a leadin contractor here 30 years ago' w,h built the Call opera house, the Cen tral schoolhouse, 1 and many , of th finest residences 'at Algona, Includ ing the Ambrose A. Call home, now the Kossuth hospital. The home .he built for himself was soundly constructed, and was still in good condition when Mr. Aman bought it, Sut the trend in residence construction Is now towards smaller homes. Mr. Aman cut the 2% stories down to a one-story bungalow, with unfinished attic. He added built-in furniture, closets, cupboards, .a modern bath, a full basement, 42x24, and a large built-in garage. The house, moved to r the north end of the lot, now fronts on Colby, instead of State, and a modern filling station has been built on the State street corner for William Pestotnik by, Mr. Aman. The idea of cutting down Bentley's first sentence showed up omebody's bootlegger plenty. 'We verage testing 2500 samples of whiskey seized by prohibition agentu n Texas and Oklahoma each year,' he said, 'Last year we found one "ample that was really bottled in >ond.' • , " 'Pigs, chickens, cockroaches, and even skunks are found in the mash," Mr. Kellogg said. That accounts for some of the organic matter present ivhen tests are made, 'Over in the Louisiana swamps they, have a notion, that leather ages^the whiskey, so It's not uncommon to find old mule collars, shoes, and worn-out harness in the vats,' Mr. Kellogg said. "Prohibition agents are permitted to • testify that whiskey is whiskey. But beer Isn't beer—not illegally so anyway—until the chemists say so. That's a joke to Mr. Kellogg and Mr. Bentley, since home brew cannot be made with as little alcohol content as is permitted by law."

Wm. Baddeley, pastor of the local Methodist church, left last week Wednesday on the first stage, of a summer visit to her former home in England. The Bad- deleys took her to Webster City, where she boarded a'train for New York, where she sailed Saturday on the S. S. Brittanic for Liverpool, expecting to arrive June 11. She will spend two months at her old home at Stoke-on-Trent, and. will tour England, Scotland, and Wales.

A miscellaneous shower was given honoring Mrs. Albert Shaser at In Your Next Cake KC eration to make a compact modern home of the present day required courage on Mr. Aman's part, but the result : is a credit to his judgment. One day last week we called the McEnroe Bros, headquarters at the Milwaukee stockyards. .There was a newly moved building which was being rern'oflpled. for offices.for the firm's livestock business. It was formerly part of a house and has three rooms. In one is a desk, and ed out last winter; accordingly theyi w e learned that this was a bank and their family of three boys and three girls must start over. The eldest of the children Is a boy of 12. We called Friday at Carl Star- quist's, four miles north•> and two miles east of Wesley. He came from Chicago three yedrs ago, and at first worked for Pete Seaberg, three miles nor,th and a half mile east of Wesley.

They all said they enjoyed living. in this part of the country- They had lived. in Chicago 30 years, and Mr. Pearson worked in railroad shops all the time. They had never seen dirt that could get so muddy as it does in this section. They also remarked that Algona was , the prettiest town they had ', ever been in. The G. W. Sample home garden on south Minnesota street, Algona, is probably one of the farthest advanced in the city. Mr. Sample farms the north half, and his sweet corn is already tall and proud. Mrs. Sample, who has more of ; ,the fancies on her side, has built a pebbled concrete bird bath, including a new feature, which is just a limb of a white oak, with branches like a small tree, growing up from the basin, on which birds can sit while drying their feathers. She also has many flowers of, luxuriant growth, some of brilliant colors. The Samples formerly operated a farm at Irvington which is now rented. Some time ago they moved to Algona, built a modern bungalow, and are taking things a bit easier, as they have a well 'earned right to do. desk used by Wm, K. ^Ferguson, of the First National , bank, Algona, later by J. S. Auner at the K.' C. State bank. The McEnroes, who own and .operate 900 acres of land east of town, some years ago 'undertook to furnish a good livestock market at this;point, and they,have slowly built up the business till we hear favorable comment from farmers at surrounding points who say the McEnroes give Algona an excellent market. They have developed good outlets, and are now keeping three to four trucks busy, hauling stock. They ship 40 to 60 carloads a month in summer, and up to 100 cars a month in fall and. winter; Men employed are George McMahon, who has been with the firm for several years, John Johnson, Glen Bales, Andrew Johnson, Myron Ludwig, and Harry Deibler; Other help is employed at times. The Mc- Enroes, Frank, M. H,, and Leo are all hard workers, and we meet their big trucks on the road at. all hours of day and night. Meanwhile the farm work goes on, PRIZES GIVEN AT PICNIC FOR WHITTEMORE SCHOOL Whittemore, June 7—A Lutheran school picnic Sunday afternoon at Albert/Vaudt's grove was well attended.

C., who are endeavoring to put over the bonus bill. He said he had himself spent some time overseas, and he wondered what the outcome' would be. The Slagles have five healthy- looking boys, and the older ones are i getting big enough to .help Bad, The family was expecting Mr, Slave's sister, Mrs. Ray Estle, of, Fayette, Mo., and her eon Allen for a two weeks visit.
