TIMELY TIPS We were fortunate to purchase a few of the real large heavy steel wheelbarrows for sale to FARMERS ONLY. Not a piece of wood in them, and priced about the same as the Victory barrow. ' Another thing we have is 45 gallon all steel feed cookers, priced at $28. Don't forget the Parmak electric fencer saves time, labor and material. And it might be smart for you to pick up some heavy barbed wire while we have stock. Get that Thermo-Royal Anti-Frceze now while you can. Priced at $1.40 per gallon. THE ALGONA HARDWARE O. F. PETERSON TAKE ALL YOU NEED ...WE'LL GET ALONG ON WHAT'S LEFT ROUND On everything in. America, we' gladly say — "Our fighters have first call." Fighting men need butter—lots of it. Fortunately, through the tireless effort and all-out production of farmers here in Iowa and other dairy states, there's still butter for the family tdble, even after meeting- the full needs of our armed services. ONLY BUTTER CAN BE BUTTER. Nothing else can match its flavor and goodness. So, to make it go around, we apply common-sense suggestions like these: Serve butter at room temperature so it spreads easily, hence goes much farther. Encourage "dunking" or "bread and gravy." When making sandwiches, butter one slice only. Help the youngsters stretch their butter by serving bread-and-milk oftener. Make butter pats smaller, permit no waste. Butter vegetables at the table, after serving. Tune in every Sunday "VOICE of the DAIRY FARMER" your nearest NBC Station.
