IOWA New $50,000 Grandstand at Spencer )ART OF THE huge' crowd whin jammed the stands at the 1931 S pencer fair; when the weather fin- any gave them a break. W. J. Payne, Editor. Charles Klamp, Field Reporter. Duroc Jerseys, Chester Whites, A Bay at the Fair. Superintendent Raney, of the hog department, was well pleaeed with the volume of exhibits at the county fair. The hog barns were all full, with a fine display of Polands, ~ " Spotted Polands, and 'Hampshlres. Each breed wa e In a separate section, and the exhibits undoubtedly represented the finest showing of swine here in years. The men who brought hogs to the fair are of big caliber, agreeable gentlemen to deal With. E. L. Quaife capably Judged the swine. We did not get the list of all the winners, but we noticed that Harold Fisher, Swea City, showing 16 Hampshires, took five firsts and a champion; Geo. : P. Hawcott, Burt, 12 firsts, one champion on .Polands; Bert Goeders, Lakota, three firsts and 12 ribbons on Spotted Polands; C. C. 'Baas, Whlttemore, showing Hampshlres, eight firsts, two champions, one grand champion. Mr. Baas showed an unusually smooth 800-lb. sow to win the grand championship. The P. M. Christensen & Son. Lone Rock, Duroc Jerseys and the B. A. Taylor, Burt, Chester White showings were good, but we did not see the men to learn their winnings. We did get the Christensen & Son They firsts, Polled Hereford winnings. showed 12 head and won 16 two championships, and two grand championships. A young heifer out of their herd shown by Jack Tlbbets won first In Herefords in both county and district classes, and another animal out of the Christejisen herd, a heifer, also shown by Mr. Tibbets, in the heifer club class, won first in class. This heifer also was good enough to win the junior and grand championships in the open class on Hereforda. The Reeses, Ledyard. showed ten hea'd of Herefords, but we did not get the winnings. Mr. Christensen, who was near by, pointed cut an unusually fine cow which had won first for the Reese herd. We -understand that Claude Reese showed the cattle. ' / In the horse barn Roy Zcrnkel, showing five Belgians, won seven firsts and two championships. This is the only list of house winnings we -secured in our brief visit to the barns. Other exhibitors C. M. <3ross & Sons, Lone Rock, who always show winning Percherons; P. H. Hargreavea, HoTsarton:; and the Materns, of Wesley. >' The fair this year came sut u time when the writer was tied down in preparations for an annual Register & Tribune convention, aicefflnflinj we could not cover the fair as well as we should like to do. The Poultry house was full, undoubtedly having the largest exhibit in eome years'. The cattle barns had nice showings. There were 54 dairy calf and 14 baby beef entries. The number here was not a» large -as in some other years, but all "were shown by young exhibitors keenly interested in-their projects, ana they showed a high quality of «tock and management . ' In the girls' 4-H .club building there were 13 booth*, literally crowded with the handiwork of members, These clubs have come to represent one of the most desirable activities;connected with the (Farm Bureau. . Anyone looking over the booths must have been impressed by the accomplishments of the girls. Harrison township won first, The booth was crowded with results of the club's activities, This club, organized in 1929 with three 'charter members, now has 12 members. The Portland Peppy Pals took second place. This club, organized in 1930 with six members, now has a membership of 20. The Union Alethean 4-H club, with 1C members, placed third. . ' i It was a great fair run against obstacles. The last day especially brought everybody out. We can dp it again. ^ ^ '' , 'FARM NEWS AN» COMJIPNT. Persons who want to store vege? tables this fall, when prices are low, and hold them for better markets, shpuld get the Ames Extension bul- letine Nog. 184 and 128, revised, entitled' "Home Storage of Vegetables" and "More Potatoes per Acre". Doubtless additional information on storage problems can-also be had from thfe college, and, County Agent Morrison Is prepared; to furnish similar information. Hazel, W-year-oJd daughter of Louis Walker, Blue Earth, returned Sunday, September 11, to Algona from the Minnesota state fair, ana is now attending St. Cecelia's acad- eroy, but will return to Blue Earth, to spend next summe^ with her father. This summer her father gave her a Guernsey calf, which. she raised and ' exhibited at the •Blue Earth lair; and she WQJ», flw place in-her c^w and tbjr4/ "» sweepstakes, thus winning the trip to the state fair for herself and calf.. During school months Hazel stays with her aunt, Mary Dunn. The Milwaukee has.added a considerable Improvement at the Algona. stockyards, where McEnroe Bros, have their, office. A new house has been built over the scales, two extra stock pens with paved floors have been built with sheds built over them, also two new loading chutes, of which one Is a double- decker. The McEnroes have built up a steadily increasing business which requires this. extra 'equipment. Some time ago we mentioned their office quarters, and now we notice that they have put awnings over the windows—this, we presume, to keep (Leo and Prank from becoming sunburned. Us gents must watch our complexions nowadays! The 'farm occupied by John T. eterson, near the Grant township school, has geen greatly improved during the two or three years they have occupied it. The Mutual Life Insurance, which owns it. built a new barn, a new corncrib, a new granary, and a new hog house, also a basement under the house, which has been remodeled. A fence has been built around the yard and the buildings painted. The farm Is 200 acres. The improvements seem to indicate that the Petersons are ap>- predated as tenants. They moved to Grant township from near Armstrong. Mrs. Petersen inquired after that jolly fellow, our right hand man, Charley Klamp, who covered the mail route on the last regular trip, but was busy elsewhere on this occasion. With noyd Colflwell, north of the Grand school, we recently discussed some coste of growing crops. Figuring three to four bushels of bats an acre for seed, the cost of seed last spring -was around a dollar, with some e^ctra charge if it -was treated-; and 'if two-fifths of the oats go to the landlord from a 40- bustreVaTi-acre crop and the farmer sold n'is .s"hare at lOc a bushel, "he got I2.4D for. the 24 bushels, from which Tie -paid for seed $1. This left only $1.40 an acre with which to buy TOmier twine, pay threshing expenses, -plow, drag, seed, ana harvest. Certainly it would take a genuine "figure expert to locate cost of production at such a price, let alone labor same profit, even payment for alone. TjooTdng at it in the way Trom the landlord's standpoint, he, has 16 bushels of oats, or '$1.60 Tvmfh. TvKhSh will not pay taxes, let alone 'interest and upkeep. We certainly 'hope the price of corn win Improve enough before markeSBE .*» that something will be realized from 'that/crop. Boy Lost at Fair. St. Joe, Sept. 13—The Tullu« Capesius little eon Dick got lost Friday-night in the crowd at the county fair. Tie was wearing a Tjilglit red eu'tt, -so was found in five minutes. JHe was badly frightened. LADIES, HAVE YOU EVER heard anything like this—P & O Nai tha Soap, 10 bars 19c.
