Farmer's Wife Whittemore Active In Food For Victory Aiding in the war effort by way of an active part in the Food For Victory program )s one farmer's wife in Kossutli county. And her effort is no ,small and negligible one at that. Mrs. Theo. Meier, living on a farm four miles north of Whittemore, has a job on her hands. She is raising this year 1,000 chickens, has 100 ducks, and 50 geese and 50 goslings. To properly care for and keep fit and growing this much poultry is no small job. Three Unusual Geese An unusual condition exists in the flock of 'geese being grown by Mrs. Meier. Three of them are laying eggs at this time. This may not seem so unusual to the average person. However, the average goose discontinues laying activities between the middle and latter part of August. It is a rare occasion to find a goose egg after September 1st. But Mrs. Meier is gathering three goose eggs every day for the present. ; , j Rites Held Oct. 2 For Mrs. Harry Bates Funeral services were held Saturday at the McCullough chapel 'or Mrs. Harry Bates, Union :ownship, who died Thursday at the General hospital following a severe stroke suffered the day before. The Rev. D. R. Martin conducted the services and interment was made in Riverview cemetery. Lydia Sarah Ripke was born Sept. 15, 1876 at Cedar Falls, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Ripke. On May 16, 1900 she was married to Harry Bates. A few mpnths later they moved to Kossuth county and lived the remainder of their married life in Plum Cr"eek and Union township and Algona. Beside her husband Mrs. Bates s survived by a daughter, Edith, now Mrs. George Broesder, and a son, Earl R., who came from Indiana as soon as he was notified ;hat his mother had had a stroke. There is one grandchild. -A brother and sister also survive. Sight Worth Seeing: Thirty years ago the Cedar county fair advertised a feature 'worth coming a hundred miles to see."

Mrs. George Boyle, widow of One of Kossuth county's more prominent men of some thirty or forty years ago, died Friday afternoon at Whittemore where she and her sister, Mrs. May Brown of Pennville, Indiana, were visiting their brother, Joe Butle^and sister, Mrs. John Van Hise. Mrs. Boyle has been making her home in Pennville for a number of years, but returned to Whittemore about two months ago for a visit and was taken sick while there. Elizabeth Theresa Butler was born February 4, 1865, at Peoria, Illinois, the daughter of James C. and Mary (Cannon) Butler, natives of Ireland. Her family came to Kossuth county in 1890 and her father purchased a farm near Whittemore where he lived until his death in 1B91. On January 20, 1902, Elizabeth was married to George Boyle, who was at that time president of the Whittemore State Bank, as well as engaged in other enterprising lines of businses. Mr. Boyle died some years ago. Funeral services were held Monday morning at 8:30 from the St. Michael's church at Whittemore wiht the Rev. Wm. Veit in charge and interment was made at the Whittemore Catholic cemetery. Besides the sisters and brother mentioned previously, Mrs. Boyle is survvied by a step-son, Mark Boyle, who lives in Long Beach, lalif. War Victory Hemp Notes (By Kinsey & Elston, Mgrs.) Hemp notes were set aside for a period during the activity of cutting the hemp crop and the :eneral hustle bustle of the past month. Hemp cutting was finished last week and all we need now is a good rain or so, to start the hemp to retting (apologies to the bean harvest). Chances are that the last hemp cut will finish retting just as soon as the hemp that was cut first. Fields are being watched daily for signs of retting. So far the hemp has only bleached out and dried to some extent. Nature does the retting. The hemp will be graded as to length only for a tentative classification in the fields and in the presence of the grower. The actual grade depends on the care in handling, retting and condition of the straw at delivery to the mill site. A crew of six men are now receiving grading instructions and will soon be in the fields making tentative grading and will be able to tell each grower the class or grade of hemp he may expect if proper care in delivery and handling is taken. Some binders have been delivered to rings and the balance of machines that we have received are being delivered this week. Our last car of seven machines is expected to arrive today and we are confident all machines will be on hand at the proper time for binding. • Answer—No tractor tires were reported punctured during the cutting season. Hope no one feels sorry about the results of their predictions. We don't. Mrs. Bishop Returns To Iowa This Week Mrs. A. A. Bishop writes from San Diego, Calif., where she has spent the past six weeks with her daughter, Mrs. W. W.

She has been in California helping to care for her new grandson, the first grandchild for the Bishops, who has been named James Bishop Patterson. Capt. Patterson has just been transferred from Camp Callan, near San Diego, to Eugene, Oregon, at the State University there. Mrs. R. L. (Ruth) Gorr, who has been with her father at Mason City since the Bishops moved there during Mrs. Bishop's absence, has gone to San Diego and will stay with Mrs. Patterson (Esther Bishop) until she can go to Eugene.
