McDonald, Algona, delinquent tax collector, has a garden unusual enough to :give pleasure to the observer. One of his plants is an Egyptian lily which resenvbles pictures of tree ferns in the Palaeozoic age of the world, supposed to have been among the first vegetation millions of years ago. These lilies grow three feet tall or more, and have a spread nearly 'three feet across. The plant grew from a bulb which last fall was some 21 inches in diameter when Air. McDonald took it in for the winter. This is the fourth year it has grown in his garden, and he says it is now. old enough to bloom if he cares to let it. The blooming time would be about February. The bulb would be taken up and set in the house, where it would continue to thrive without soil or water,.;'and , In due time would have a bloom a foot or more across. However; Mr. McDonald says the bloom also would have a rank smell, which would make it undesirable as a housemate; accordingly he does not' expect to let it bloom. There is a tree on which Mr. McDonald has grafted eight varieties of apples and pears. He also has 175 Regal lilies. Among the flowers in bloom are such masculine blooms as zinnias, dahlias, etc., 'with their vivid colors and strength of stock. The garden Is, interesting because of its lack of: formality. Just plants set here and there, kept cleanly cultivated and well cared for. We have no doubt that Mr. McDonald gets pleasure from-this garden. On our way back to the'car he led the way, to a spot In the lawn where four-leaf clovers could be found: He gave us one, and by'.working hard to make our wishes come true; have had good luck ever since. A Lover of Horses. we Mr. Klamp called at (Homer Gregory's, eix miles north and a mile west of Lu Ve^ne, last Thursday, The Gregorys were threshing, and it was 'some job, for they farm 640 acres. The oats yield was good, something more than 9,000 bushels, Mr/Gregory still believes in. -the horse for. farm work, He keeps 24 head., which Is an extra-large drove nowadays. He also '• buys and jsella horses, -being a real lover of good horseflesh. Otto Youngwlrth was doing the threshing, and . while Mr. Klamp was there the tines fell off of the handle of a fork which. one of the men pitching bundles was using and flew into the machine. It did little damage, however/and. the machine was stopped only five . mlnV utes. A large gas tractor was being used .for powers Henry 'Sphaffer, who has worked for the Gregorys six years, said he had been in the army and remarked that he was not in eympatljy with the bonus seekr ers, thinking that the boys had better have the money corning In later years. , _ Herq Are Re»l Belgians, A purebred Belgian colt which Roy Zunkje showed us three, years ago, on his father's farm northwest of Lone Ilock Is now a handsome l$904b, stallion with, an excellent- disposition. Roy also has a 4 -year- old mare and colt which looked good ' Jier family could only come to this * 'country they would be happy.

They \ had been at Watertown, S. D., and | they said that the crops out that way,, looked fairly • good. The Amos Krpmingas now occupy the house on the ,Tas. McEnroe farm, northeast of v Algona, where Nick 'Klein formerly lived, ;and Mr. Krominga works for Mr. McEnroe. The Kromingas formerly farmed near the North End golf course, but for the last few years Amos had worked for J. "VV. Dorranee at Burt. Mrs. Krominga is a daughter of John Plaster, northeast of Tltonka farmer and land owner. ilda Grove has had a swimming if is street from the leading hotel, within a few steps of the heart of the -business district- The pool utilizes a three-j cornered piece of ground beside aj sidewalk. Another feature of this! municipally owned pool is that there] are bleacher seats for spectators,' outside the fence which encloses it. We saw this pool one day recently. 1 Last week Tuesday we called .at; C. 6. McClellan's, at the northwest; edge of Lu Verne. "Clint," who is a-'former Algona -boy, a eon of the late S. .B. McClellan, had just come home from a neighbor's ,where he had been helping thresh. He has no small grain this year, and he was taking his .pay in oats instead of money. He farms SO acres and .this" year has put most of it into corn. C. O. is a brother of Mrs. Glen Ra.ney, whose husband is deputy postmaster at Algona. •Elsewhere this week, we speak of the - G. F. Strickers, east of Irvington. Mrs. Strieker said that she has a sister in Siberia, which belongs to on the purchase of a Tleu/ TIRE and TUBE 'Russia. People terribly It they there were treated confess belief. in God. The soviet authorities' took the sister's husband away from his family and sent him Into exile. Mrs. Strieker remarked If the sister and were told. J Tony Seller, of the Sexton neighborhood, remarked Saturday tha;t>he had been at Des Jloines last week Tuesday, .and that from observation along the way he judged that there Tvae more threshing In progress around Algona than In any other neighborhood between here ' ^nd there. We In northern Iowa, seem tp be having an early season' this year. Some Koasuth farmers even complain that their grain ripened too soon, with resulting short straw and a poor yield. Jrfany others, however, report a bumper crop, •Last -week Tuesday, when we called ftf Clifford Richardson's, three miles north of I^u Verne; we were told that they had come there 1 March 11 from Goldfleld and were rntich pleased 'with 'the 'new home. There are two girls and a boy Jn the family: Phyllis, 9; Betty, 7; 'Du.a,ne, 5. We noticed 3- herd of good Chester White spring pigs, and Clifford said he had more than 40 'of them. Goldfield Is where the Advance editor was reared, 'but he left there, In 1899 and came to Kossuth. His, wife was brought up at Lu Verne, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mre. P. Hi Patton, We couldn't help stopping Saturday at Martin r Wabg/s, 1% miles north" oJ 'Lu Verne, to see a good, oldtime steam ^outfit threshing. It Is owned by a number f>t> fanners.

Ihe condition of the tire is not important—so long as it will hold air and is on the wheel and in service. This offer applies also to any other tire and tube which has miles left in it and which we deem serviceable. The government has passed the bill taxing tires— -1% cents per pound. However, we nave not yet added this tax ... We ur$e you — take advantage of "this trade-in allowance—and buy now before the tax goes into effect. Gamble's have long since outdistanced competition on tire prices. Here's why— First—our tires were produced from new rubber at current low prices. Second—the Gamble plan is the shortest distance between the factory wheels and the wheels of. your car. To offer these extremely -low prices we must include the tube wi|h the tire. Otherwise such an offer would be impossible. Trade in your old tires and tubes now. A written guaranty of definite mileage and lifetime goes with every tire.
