Mrs. P. J. Schlltz, of Fort Dodge, Pioneer Bays Recalled. At W. K.' Drover's In 'Portland township one day last week we noticed a catalpa tree more than- 60 feet tall, and we were reminded of a boom in catalpa planting 25 years ago. This tree, however, was evidently planted before that wave, so we asked who set It out, and Mrs. Grover said her. husband's, father planted two such trees 40 years ago. The big,tree Is now In bloom, though showing Its age, visited her daughter, Mrs. James Geelnn, last week. Mrs. Ralph Bartlett and twins, and •her sister, spent the week-end with relatives at Manly.

It was In' this grove that "gopher" picnics . were held. There were v tables under the trees and a bowery for dancing, and as'much as $100 would be cleared In church'funds at a picnic. We asked Mrs. Grover,' Why not "gopher" picnics nowadays and not ,only make some money for church activities but have a good time ,near home as well; but she said that we are -today not so easily satisfied and must go to Chicago or the north- woods, or somewhere else, for our good times Instead of to local, picnics.. A picnic then was the climax of a contest, as we understand It. After sides had been chogen, each side would try to beat the other at killing gophers, which were a pest. The tails were saved, and the side that secured the most tails was victo: and was fed by-the side which lost It was one of those picnic dinner: about which our Mr. Klamp wrot recently. The.

TWO KOSSUTH LAKES MAY BE MADE DEEPER Swea City, June 24. The movement to reclaim Goose and Burt lakes for hunting an'd fishing 'under direction of the Iowa board of conservation is well under way. Last week Tuesday morning County Engineer H. M. Smith, with, two-assistants were'in Mawdsley farm'across the road. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. Last Thursday we called on B. F. Sharp, three miles south of Elmore. These folks are always busy. They lad picked 100 quarts of strawberries Monday, and many more the day we called. 'Mildred, the daugh- :er,' picks most of them. They informed us that there was a white cutworm In the berry patch. The worm cuts the root of the strawberry plant, which then starts to wilt and finally dies. Mrs.' Sharp told us of a wonderful trip the family had with the son, Dr. Floyd B. Sharp, obstetrician at- the Gruno Memorial hospital, Phoenix, Ariz. The doctor and his family came -here on a visit last September, and nothing would do but that the parents must go back with them. They stayed in Arizona two months, spending some time at the Arizona state fair. Mr. Sharp remarked that wife, all living, and nine children of the second wife, of which seven are Hvlng. : out of the 17 there ae 11 married. E. O.-Mann, east of Burt, who has Jived on the same farm 68 years f having come as a yearling, td what was later to be called "Sodtown," with hia father, the late Stephen V. R. Mann, says he is farming 200 acres now with only two horses on the place. He has a. Farmall and a four-row cultivator. His son, L, i'. Mann, farms with him, and they are tending 90 acres of corn • this year. Talk about tractors came about when we asked Mr. Mann about concrete weights in the wheels of an old Mollne tractor 'now In the Junk yard. Tn Is machine cost $1,450 new compared to the Farmall outfit, which cpst $800. S. G. Collicott, south Portland township, mentioned Saturday that he had sold two SOO-lb, -sows for $10.50 each, or $21 for the pair. He had kept these .flows three years after paying $37.50 each for thdm, or! a total of $75. The two sows, bought as purebreds, had each rais- three they had saved a. good average number to the litter. However, the $54 of depreciation in their value, where a farmer normally can expect gain, had cut down _the profit of his -hog- raising operations. We have been wondering Whether farmers, are raising, more hogs 1 or fewer this year. John Schneider Jr., north of Burt, has 90 head, and 'he Is buying 20c con to feed them. He said he has saved seven pigs to the Utter this season. The pigs now weigh around 40 pounds at six weeks. Harry Putz, a little way south, has ISO head, and he has been watching the market slowly risel with real interest. ! The day of the big rain (Friday) we called $t Edward Dontje's, Gerled, and found the family happy over a girl born June 15, weighing )% Ibs. She. has been named Eunice Elda.

Whittemore is fortunate In having their, milk supply pasteurized. . Park Picnic July Fourth— Plans have been announced for the park Picnic here July 4th. A chlck- Engle township making a survey of the region. The main thing to be considered is a new dam at the outlet of Burt lake. This lake is about one-half in Iowa and one-half In Minnesota, and the outlet of the new dam would be in Minnesota. It was suggested by Engineer^Smith that local sportsmen raise a. fund to build the dam, for it is improbable that Minnesota would appropriate funds for a dam to benefit Iowa. The cost 1 would not be great, for a five foot dam with a spillway .to be sufficient to raise the water level in' Burt lake 1 from its~presenflow level, to a depth of five to ten feet. Goose lake would benefit from the dam, raising its water level ,from a two to five feet. Goose lake and Burt lake are connected by a natural water course of sloughs and creeks. The one objection to damming the lake would be the over flow in times of high water, injuring surrounding farm land. John Anderson, who operates a resort on Burt lake, has been urging the Impovement for »sorne time, even with the help of some.'farm'ers living near at one time building a small dam, which eventually was washed away. These two lakes are the only lakes in Kossuth county. farmers.' They have 1 a good line, of machinery and . farm • 220 acres There are only two children. North of Burt Friday we met the new Mrs. Merwyn Holding am learned that she is a daughter of Mr.' and Mrs. Jos. JRecker, prominent east of Bancroft farmers. The couple were married May .9 and are farming the 104-acre farm where the Andersons operated last year Mrs'. Holding was head of the dry- goods department and one of the buyers at the big Kennedy store at Bancroft three years. She was/married before and has two fine chil- _ _ dren. She was out at the brooder Mln^neTghborh'ood' north'two miles house between showers, looking af- farmlng land which has been in the Grover family 68 -years and Is now owned by Mrs. R. M. Wallace, Algona, sister of W. E. Mrs. W- E. Grover also grew up In -the neighborhood. Her father, the late Martin Owen, bought land just over the line in Plum Creek township 50 years ago. The Owen farm is now operated by Roscoe Mawdsley In connection with the No Tax on Tires As long as our stock lasts. We will sell our high grade line of GENERAL AND KELLY TIRES Without adding the tax JoeGreenberg To give an idea of the difference between reckoning- distances In the early days and how,. We noticed that many people in the Grover neighborhood spoke of the E. O. as "Sodtown." ,The folks of the township are now closer to each other by virtue of the automobile than were the people of a school district in the early days. Mrs. Gvover's brother, iL. M. Owen, lives in Algona, on College street, and his wife is the .only sister of E. • O.

Having been told of a dog near toy:whose owner had- refused $100 for him, we asked the price of the puppies-and were told they would probably be given away to friends. The parent dog was bought some years ago for $15, and his /grandfather, an imported animal, was sold for $1,600 to a Sioux, City man. When we asked about 'hogs, Harold Grover, son of the house, said that a few more than 200 head of •hogs r were being raised, .or a "little more than a hog to the" acre." He has been watching the hog market carefully, and noticed it has crossed "the $4 mark In Chicago. At John Trunkhllls. - John Trunkhlllir of Portland, township, bu^lt a fine new barn, two tile silos, and a big double corn crib four years ago, and we mentioned the fact, 'However, we did not get a chance to look thruogh , the new buildings till last week, when we met him in the yard at home instead of out in his fie)ds. The barn Is built on a stpne fpundatlon made of big rock, chiefly "nlggerheads," that go down Into the grpund five feet, and the wall is some two feet across.

Holding, who farm southwest of Burt, and he has several brothers and sisters around Burt.' He has-been well 'trained as a farmer, and we can predict that these young folks will make a success of the farming business. .(Last .week Wednesday L. R. Kessel, one •'. and one-half miles south and one mile.west of Elmore, showed us 1 'his fine herd of':.24 purebred Jersey cows. He said he had ^formerly had shorthorns, but bought the Jerseys last January south of Chicago. He Is well satisfied with them, for they give rich milk. Mr. Kessel 'farms 160 acres. He was putting up alfalfa hay, which was a good quality. The Kessete have three girls.- L. W. Kessel, brother of L. R., who lives neap by, still raises shorthorns, which are in fine shape. He also has 50 sheep, and he has raised 53 lambs this spring. He remarked, however, that he did not get much more for the wool than It cost to have the sheep sheared. His boys are old enough nurse, and Ruth James, Gerled, is the pleasant maid who gets the housework done. We had a visit. Saturday with Henry Brandt,; who works for Emmett Paetz, two miles north of Sexton. He said they had measured the Friday rainfall there, and It was nearly eight inches. Henry remarked it must have been caused by* the wet plank In. the republican platform! Clair, youngest son of Mrs/Grace Watkins, Portland township, , was carrying his arm in a sling when we called Friday. He said it had been broken near the wrist when he fell while he was pole-vaulting at a neighbor's home a week ago Sunday. • • Some of the corn planted by Alva Ross • near his home, in Portland township is the best we have seen to date.
