Titonka Heifer On Water Diet 3 Weeks Titonka—Three weeks ago to the day John Pink, farmer living east of Titonka, missed a 4.50 Ibs. heifer from his herd. Search and questioning in the neighborhood failed to find the heifer. Last Sunday a Titonka veterinarian was called to the Pink farm to treat a starved heifer and it developed that this was the animal which had been lost for three weeks. In some manner the animal had fallen into a partly caved- in tile ditch on the Pink place, too deep for the heifer to get out, and in the 21 days she had subsisted entirely on water. While almost only skin and bones now, the owner was assured that the heifer will eventually regain her 450 pounds.

For fifty-five years he was one of the best known and successful well drillers in this region. Of late years he has owned and operated his fine farm on the northeast outskirts of Algona, which he recently sold. John handed us the following letter, as a few last words to his old friends: "Well, Bill, I am bidding you all goodbye. I've lived here on these prairies nigh onto seventy years now. It was pretty raw then when we came here from Pennsylvania; mostly water and mud. We landed in the Cliff Hotel. Very few living today will remember where it stood. For 55 years I served the public by furnishing them with water. Some of the very first wells I drilled are still going strong. I have the log and record of 860 wells I have drilled in these years, besides others I have bored and dug by hand. I first started with Nick Hubbard, spade, pick and windlass. And I believe I am the only person in Kossuth county in those years who always guaranteed his work. As you may recall I always carried an adv., 'Water or No Pay. 1 I've always been Santa Claus all my life, but as Jimmie Neville says, 'The Lord loves a cheerful Giver,' but I gave it just the same. So He should love me quite a little. So 'mother' anc} I after having raised a family of four sons and one daughter, all married and serving their co.untry without a blemish, are leaving this community for that Golden Sunset, which is only a few years hence, with pur heads up. We are not leaving by night nor down the alley, and we owe no one a cent. Thus Kossuth will lose one old democrat and California will gain one Townsendite, perhaps. Goodbye all.—Mr. and Mrs. John P.
