There are three boys and a girl in the Wesselman family. The men were finishing corn cultivating. They are milking 20 high grade -Holstolns. There were 60 fall pigs In the lot, which were being fed for market. Uke all farmers who have hogs, the Wesselnians have o£ late been watching hog prices go up. In another lot Mr. Wesselman had 120 spotted Poland China spring pigs, P. B. Torlne, former southwest ot •Lakota farmer, was looking after some drainage work on the farm south of William Krumm's, southwest of Swea. City, Friday, and Mrs. Torlne, who has an arm in a sling, due to an accident, was keeping him company and supervising the job.

He and Mrs. Ooetsch have a hotbed in which the potatoes are started, and Immediately after being transplanted in the garden they are hilled up. Ordinary sweet potatoes from the store .are used for seed. When we drove over a mall route north of Fenton recently for the first time in a couple of years, we found many changes. On the former C. C. Cooper farm we found Charles Lohse, and on the former Lohse farm one of the Bierstedt boys. Mr. Lohse was as cheerful as ever, and everyone In the family was working hard. Verle, the eldest son, plows corn with a 4-horse 2-row cultivator, and he said he bad plowed five years, though he is still just a youngster. Ten days ago, at the Ornle 'Behrends farm, northeast^ of Fenton, :700 bushels', of corn was being shelled to sell at only 21c a bushel. Mrs. Behrends said it was necessary to sell to pay for binder twine for they are again effective. Last Thursday we visited the Elmer Jorgensons, three miles north tons of hay, several pieces of machinery, harness, etc., none of which was saved. The Dickmeyers had j just returned from town and were sitting In their car near the barn when the bolt struck. They rushed Into the barn and led out four horses and some calves, but did not have time to save any of the machinery and other things. Mr. Dickmeyer had carried Insurance, but It had expired ten days before.. The 'barn was a large one with machine shed and 1% miles west of Bancroft. They came there March 1 from a farm ten miles south of Fairmont. There are three children: Mjllton, 5; 'Betty Lane, 3; Wayne Richard, one. Mr. .Torgenson Is farming 320 acres, and he specializes In purebred Ayr- shires, at present having 14 fine cows. This was t.he first time the Jorgensons had moved in 11 years, At Tom Murphy's, a mile and a half west and two miles north of Bancroft, we found company, Mrs. Murphy's sisters, Mrs. Jos. Catharine, New York City, and Mrs. Edw. Reidy, Chicago, her three sons, and two girls, who bad came by car. The children were having the time of their life on the farm. Mr. Murphy operates 320 acres, the property of Hughs 'Bros., Chicago, who are coming back to the place next March. Mr. Murphy will have to £lnd another farm. We started out In the field Friday to visit Edgar Roulet, on the first farm .south of Swea City, operated last year by the R. E. Johnsons. The fences are not sbarply defined on one side. The occupants In the car were momentarily stunned by the shock, injured. but were not seriously Rchcknh Officers Are Installed— The following officers were Installed at the iRebekah lodge meet- Ing Thursday evening: Esther Olson, KG.; Dorothy Steward, V.

(talked politics mostly, and Mr. i says he does not care to re- j»ll that was said. Mr. Miller, does not let politics or ljng .else interfere with i the f>f good farming which he pfac- »llne, daughter of Mrs. Anna .pioneer south of Seneca, has 1 a course at the state nor- ind la seeking a teaching posl- > other work. She has clerked the home farm, also for a farm operated by the boys, who have the old Simpson ranch, east of 'Seneca. They were buying twine at $6.&5. We also met John Behrends, who farms west of Seneca, and this was the first time we had seen him in two pi- three years. On the former Olaf Pearson farm, now owned by Arthur Anderson, of Lakota, we recently met Ray, son of Mr. and Mrs. ' C. A. Winter, prominent Poland China breeders near Lakola. Ray has 11 purebred Poland China sows with which to start farming, and he is also interested in purebred Aberdeen Angus cattle, of which he has five females, two being matured cows. He has two 13- months purebred bulls for sale. In Crawford Instead. .Lloyd was operating a row crop tractor for Hugh Butterfleld. He was cultivating corn, and was doing a careful job. We noticed that Canada thistles in a wet spot had been mowed to keep down the seed. After we had provided Lloyd with his daily, we went back, found Mr. Roulet, and visited him a few minutes. He also was using a row crop tractor to cultivate, and he was giving the weeds a hard run. The cultivators hardly injure Canada thistles growing in the corn. Perhaps a surface cultivator kept sharp would keep them from growing large enough to go to seed. But the tractor makes It possible to shovel-cultivate corn thor oughly and frequently, thus destroying other kinds of weeds. Mr. Roulet formerly worked on this farm Mrs. Lillian Sheldon, secretary; Lulu Hawcott, treas.; Mrs. W. A. Chipman, warden; Mrs. C. F. • Whalen, Cond.; Mrs. C. L. Holding, I. G.; Esther Bahllng, O.
