Mrs. Studer had just got over thc snme disease We saw Leo Helnen, a mile west and 1% miles north of Wesley, Saturday, and he said he had sold some of hie hogs at ?3.SO. He also remarked that his cows were doing Well. At Chris Jensen's, two miles south and a half mile west of Sexton, the men were gathering eeed corn last Thursday. The Jensens raise both white and yellow corn, and It Is all of fine quality. We had a short visit Saturday with Richard Garman, three miles east and a half mile north of Wesley. He was getting ready to dig potatoes, which, he remarked, were of good quality but not a .bumper yield. At the J. AV. Cook farm, three miles east of Wesley, the men were preparing sugar cane feed for the cows. The kind raised is called cow cane. It was of a good duality and This kind o£ cane is excellent feed for a heavy stand, considered an cows. The county state fair 4-H demonstration team, Rae Koeetler and Beada Kollasch, gave its demonstration on Dutch draw curtains, and there were selections by the Greenwood-Ramsey orchestra. The Rev. tern lii-os., two miles cast and a hair mile south O t Wesley. The boys were digging potatoes. \V'e talked a llttl.; politics, and they said they had plnecrt bets on the presidential election. These boys are sons of the lute Mike Muieni, who In his day was known as one of the leading horse, cattle, and hog breeders of north Central Iowa. Attending a Register & Tribune convention at Des Molnes last week, we got the Impression that that city Is having !i good retail business. The streets were crowded with shoppers afternoons. Apparently basement and 'other bargain stores were getting most of the trade; however, there was considerable activity everywhere, .in our own line of work the best reports came from Charles City, Hampton, and Webster City. 'Last spring we reported that boat liveries, cottage-renting agencies, and other summer business enterprises at Arnold's Park were looking forward to a big year. On our visit last week we talked with several persons again, and they admitted that business had been poor. In the spring It was thought that many people would move to cottages where they could live cheaper, but if they came, then apparently they did not spend as freely as usual. We'stopped at the Clay county fair grounds Saturday 1 afternoon and saw great preparations being made. Farm workers from various townships were fixing up booths in -the exhibition building. 'Some club livestock had arrived, and concession- naires had begun setting up their outfits. It was not expected that the fair would break even this year, A. S. Hueser, of the Algona Baptist llut Preparations Were going ahead church, was the principal speaker. I fcn ' a Ki'eat fai r nevertheless.

At the state fair the girls competed with 64 other teams which had studied home furnishing, and'they placed first in their class and second In the home furnishings divis- ,on. This won for the team and the leader a free trip to the Ames 1933 4-H state convention. Of their experiences at Des Moines, the girls write: First Two Thrills. "Our first thrill came on the first Sunday of the fair, when it was decided that we should visit the Capitol. Though the day was warm, we climbed to the cupola, from which place we could see great distances. The air there was so delightfully cool that we felt well repaid for our long ascent up many nights of narrow stairs. We also visited the Senate and House rooms. •The next thrill came when we registered and were shown to our room, which was shared with 190 other club girls and leaders. Meals were eerved in a club dining hall where 500 club boys and girls were seated at four long tables. The tables had to be cleared and. set a second time at each meal. The food was served in family style and in great abundance, Bach noon there were talks by prominent speakers. Tuesday we heard Henry 'Field; Wednesday. Governor Turner in a fine address; Thursday members or the house of representatives. Demonstrations Are Given. "The week, day by day, had been carefully planned by the Ames Extension Service. It was like attending a great convention. There was an open assembly every morning 8 to «, and the rest of the day waVdevoted to demonstration*, talks, and display duties. •The demonstrations were given Jn roome under the grandstand. stsswss-s* here the past week. Mr, Sturm, " spent Sunday with •*t Granada. pupils, information on fire school finances, courses of drills, study, etc. A tentative calendar of the activities, including senior class play, final "exams," commencement, etc., appeared. Mr. Hammond has been at Grant several years. and a representation of George and Martha Washington. "Tuesday morning our Kossuth tearh rested and practiced demonstrations for 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Irene Capesius was Kossuth's 'healthiest girl' at the fair and competed for state honors. All of us considered the week of great educational value and well spent, in spite of the fact that our time was so directed that we eaw little of-the fair in general."
