Droessler, prominent Ramsey township farmer, has just had to see 17 out of 19 cattle In his Holsteln herd condemned, and this was not the first time, for he had lost cattle in similar tests before, 'Dr. L. W. 'Fox, Algona, and E. G. Dunn, state veterinarian from Mason City, made the latest test. Though feeling the loss keenly, Mr. Droossler Is taking It manfully, and rather than run any risk in keeping the two head not condemned he is going to get rid of the whole lot and start over. As one of the leaders in support of the .Bancroft creamery and Farm Bureau work, he believes in T. B. testing. With his new herd he will remain a member of the North End cow-testing association. At Mrs. L. J. Dreyer's, a mile West and a half mile south of Fenton, we heard an interesting- dog- story a week ago Saturday. Two dogs on the farm turned up missing and were not seen for eight days. Finally it was surmised that they had chaeed a rabbit or other animal Into a tile drain and could not get out. Herman Gade's little boy heard the dogs barking, tout could not locate them. On thla report the Dreyers got busy and began digging. It took a day to get through the frost, tout the work was rewarded. One Aog was found fast, and the other had stayed with him. Now both dogs are free and happy again. , Edw. I>roessler, ^Ramsey township, and his hired man were at Algona last week Wednesday afternoon.

More than 100 Swift & Company produce plants in the West and Central West have continued to buy daily the supplies offered. Everything they 'purchase has a market over a thousand miles wide and thousands of miles long. The supply goes wherever demand is best. At no time, in the territories served by these plants, have producers of poultry, butterfat and eggs been without a daily cash market. • Swift & Company has not had this year— has never had— any control over prices. The farmer's price is made by what the consumer can and will pay for the butter, eggs and poultry. This company's task is to cover the gap, quickly and economically between more than 200,000 farm patrons and nearly as many storekeepers. Posting daily quotations at its buying plants, Swift & Company is really saying to the producer: "Consumers everywhere, through their retailers, oBer to much for poultry, butterfat or eggs. Costs of preparation, transportation and selling are kept at a minimum. With these service costs deducted, the price paid here is about what retailers will pay at their doors hundreds of miles away." . . • . • Volume holds down processing cost. Carload shipments reduce freight bills. The same salesmen who sell Swift's Premium Ham and Bacon and Brookfield Sausage also sell Swift's Premium Milk-Fed Chicken, Golden West Fowl and Swift's Brookfield Butter, Eggs and Cheese, thus benefiting livestock men and produce growers alike.
