Donovan Out Again— Mr. and Mrs. Edw, Donovan, Mr. and Mrs. William Knoll, and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Donovan were at William Trentow's Friday. It was the first time that Ed. J. Donovan had been able to be away from home in many weeks, as he had been confined to bed most of that time. It was a great day for these old pioneer friends. The James Knolls were Sunday dinner guests of' Treptows. Surprise (or Mary Glsch— A birthday surprise party was given at the L. Gisch home Monday evening In honor of the daughter Mary. Guests from Lone Rock, Bode, St. Joe, and the Good Hope neighborhood to the number of 35 gathered during her absence and were found by the guest of honor on her return.

Wate'rtown, Wls., visited at Gelffert Kueck's and the William Dodds home, Good 'Hope, and at Alfred Peterson's, Algona, last week, also visiting relatives at Wesley. The women are cousins of Mrs. Dodds and Mrs. Peterson, and Mr, Peterly Is related to the Kunzes at Wesley. RomstnUs to New House— The Olaf Romstads, who had bsen living in the tenant house at Roy Sarchett's awaiting the completion of a new home "on the Presley Sar- cheti. farm, moved Monday. They are near the highway a quarter of a mile south of the Sarchetts. The house was -built after the fashion of a western ranchhouse, though on a smaller scale. It was three wings built around a patio in the center of which is an arbour. Inside the house Mr. Orton has many mounted game heads from the west. There is also a library in which can be found more different encyclopedia sets than probably at any other 'point ,in the county outside the Algona public library, anij maybe the library would have to the ' tnke second Place in this classification. ,, Mrs. Orton says her husband lives with his .books. However, judging toy the amount of outdoor work he has got done before and after working hours- in the clerk's office, he must take a -good deal of time off. When we were ready to leave we went to the top of the well and Clark stopped digging long enough to tell us to come again after he Sets a flow of water. We noticed a gateway with a set of pole bars, and that was something we had not before seen ' in these parts. The chlckenhouse Is a good style of log cabin. Mr. Orton will have a show place if he keeps working at It a while longer. while for Kossuth as well as others to- visit the exhibit at 'the fair and see what club girls can do. ' The room Margaret is decorating and furnishing- is a south upstairs room, originally a store room. Before the girls commenced work it had been kalsomtned a dark, de- .p'resslng blue. There was no^clothes clcaet. The woodwork had been painted a drab, uninteresting color, and the walls were streaked and cracked. First the woodwork was painted an attractive, warm ivory. The walls Were then papered with 'a cream- colOred paper having a 'small all- with blues; rose, and browns. The ivory woodwork-lightens the room, and the paper adds light, color-interest, and an appearance of roominess. A closet was built in one corner, and this also was painted in ivory. This closet was planned from a per- planent closet suggestion in • this year's 4-H leader's manual. A rod for clothes dangers and dra\yers for shoes, boxes, hats, etc, were provided. A place for everything and everything In its place now applies to this storage space. Two old-fashioned bronze bedsteads had the old bronze sand-papered off and have been enameled in ivory to render them as inconspicuous as possible. An interesting bedspread is being made from bootleggers' duck, a coarse, cream- colored material. The spread will be corded and piped with cretonne An old writing desk and bookcase combination was purchased for $2.50, and the bookcase and the writing desk were separated Varnish was removed from the desk after which it was carefully sandpapered . This desk is being painted -blue, with burnt orange for the inside trim.. An old chest of drawers, with mirror, has also been refinished. An old walnut footstool was given to Margaret by her aunt, the old varnish removed, and a wax finish ap- are being hung by rings, which are also'palnted blue.. An old picture frame has been cut down by the girls, the varnish re- noved, and waxed ready for a copy f a good print. Margaret and Mil- Ired have also refinlshed and re- aned two old chairs for the room. ( The coniplete set of furniture, urtains, and accessories will be set up at the state fair. The purpose of uch an exhibit is to give ne'w ideas, lelpful suggestions, and inspiration o 4-H club 5 members, leaders, and he rural women and girls of Iowa. The for S. S.

We had a visit last Thursday with L. H. Schenck, mail carrier at Burt. He and his wife have two 1 handsome little boys. , ' • We were north .of Swea City last week Monday and found few jobs of threshing yet to be done. Irvin Link was done and was mowing weeds along the road. Henry Sleper, who moved from Woden last March, is farming atn eighty where Earl Stott farmed last year. Mr. and Mrs. Sleper have two girls and a boy, the eldest 19, Last week Tuesday, when we called at Bert Olsen's, northwest of •Swea City, he was trying to put.his large police dog into the basement because a storm was coming and the dog Is always much 1 afraid of thunder and lightning. We had a visit last week Tuesday with Vllas Erlokson, five miles north and a mile west of Swea City. The Ericksons had just returned from Illinois, and Vllas said that crops looked good along the way. He saw few cattle, however. At Merton Roalson's. two miles west and three miles north of Swea City, last week Tuesday we walked Into a field where he and his brothers-in-law, the O'Green boys, were fencing off stubble for cattle feed, The O'Greene live north of Armstrong. A. G. Berg, near Swea'Clty, was haulng oats to town last week Tuesday at 11 %c, He remarked that it was not much of a prlpe but that he had a good crop. His corn looked good. We were shoyn some popcorn which was getting hard and seemed of extra-good quality. -We called at Martin Griese's fill- ins station at Burt Friday. ' The Gtleees have a baby girl six weeks old, also two other daughters, 1&von, 5; and ,Joan, 2. Harriet Kathryn is the 'baby. Mr. Grlese remarked that he was having a good business and liked living at Burt. We called at Mrs. Edw. Lovstad's. a half mile east and 1 8-4 miles north of Burt, Saturday.

Accordingly he wae able to treat himself to a short vacation. Ted will bring the family to fair as well. . , • We called last week Tuesday at Warren Deibler's, two miles west and a mile south of Swea City. He believes in. raising stock and feeding his grain, and He had a half carload of fat cattle about ready for market. Warren was feeding shelled corn, and he said that he bought considerable grain every year from neighbors. Mr. Deibler is a jolly bachelor yet, though we think he is just as good-looking as other men who have good cooks. At Jos. Dorrance's at the west edge of Burt F ri day we met the L. C. Farwells, of DuBois, Neb.. Du Bois is 50 miles southeast of Beatrice, Neb., near the Kansas line, and Mr. Farwell is cashier of'a bank there. The 'Farwells, who had just arrived (4 p. m.) said they had driven 350 miles since 6 o'clock -that morning. The Dorrances also had company from Lincoln, Neb., Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Henninger. Mrs. Farwell and Mrs. Henninger are Mr. Dorrance's sisters. We recently met Mike Beukema, who farme west of Titonka, at the L. E. Deibler farm a couple of miles south. Mike could not say how his oats would go, for he had not threshed, but the crop looked good. He had SO acres of fine corn. Mr. Deibler said his oats had gone 45 bushels to the acre. He has 60 acres of good corn. L. iE. is a brother of Walter Deibler, west of Swea CItyi and their father, Wm. F. Deibler, lives east of Algona in Irv- Ington township. ; Photographer L. I.

Mr. Way, who purchased the Algona Art Studio from another owner, plass to make such an exhibit at the fair an annual event. (Pair visitors may look at the photographs of the seniors of their home school this season. In a recent Des Moinee Tribune- Capital there was a column story about Arthur Anderson, who farnis between Gerled, and Lakota, If we are not mistaken on the Albert Ogren farm. The story told of Mr. .Anderson's farming methods, for he was one "of three farmers In a hundred who had submitted records showing that he made money last year, when low prices wiped out farm profits so generally. Mr. Anderson owi^s a farm south of Swea City, which he purchased a short time ago. The Henry S. Andersons now occupy the' Aetna Life.
