Wo wore at the Mike Loners farm a mile Houth and a. mile west of Ii-ylnglon, Saturday, and Mlko was grinding feed for a Cine lot of whiteface steers. He la feeding 150 head this winter, and they are rounding out in excellent style. At a recent farm sale near Ether- vlllo a 3-year-old gelding brought W, and Shorthorn cows averaged above .$25, with top at $3-1. Yearling •Shorthorn bulls brought $30; a 2- row cultivator, $3S; a flexible .steel harrow, $23; and an endgate seeder, ? 18. Arthur I-Ielberg, at his west-of- the-courthoueo garage, was last week rebuilding a Cadillac-8 coupe Into a wrecking and tow car for his AAA service. The Helberg garage brings In for rebuilding some mighty hopeless-looking cars smashed up on the highways, and the business grows. The big Cadillac will replace another big wrecker, though not so large and powerful as this one. Hugh Raney has on o of the beet water systems in the county on his farm north of Irvington, and he has recently improved It by installing an underground storage tank. He already had a pressure tank in the basement of his home. When we called a couple of weeks- before Christmas we learned that Mrs. R. M. Gardner, mother of Mrs. Raney, was now making her home with them, having moved out from ,her Algona house for a while. The Emmetaburg (Democrat reports that Mrs. A. J. Laubenthal has heard from her parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. W. Dahlhauser, who, with two married sons, recently left the Whlttemore neighborhood for a new farm home near Tallulah, La. They reported a temperature of 65 above on Christmas day. On the way down they encountered snow and ice In Arkansas, and there was even a little at Tallulah. Aa in California, the natives said that was "most unusual." We were at the W. A. Wood farm, 2>£ miles east and one mile south of Irvington, Friday, and found Henry Johanseen Sr. and his son Henry shingling a new barn they were touildlng. It is &6x34 in size, with a hip roof. The siding is what is called box-car siding. They also built a good foundation, using a carload of sand and five tons of cement. Mr. Wood was much in need of the barn. He farms a half section and has a lot of stock which need protection in winter. A fair-sized crowd attended the E. M. Sparks closing out sale la»t Thursday at the farm five miles north of Sexton. Old horses sold at ?30, $39, and $47, while two younger horses brought $50 and $70. Milk cows $17 to $26, and feeding shoatB sold from $1,50 up to a little over $2. A sow brought $3.50. Farm machinery sold ,at average prices. Ten cents a bushel was bid for 2,000 •bushels of crib corn. Mr. and Mrs. Sparks will farm with their sons Howard arid Dean, also of the Sexton neighborhood. Prank Capesius, east of Algona, told us a while back: "Unless present conditions, low prices, and high taxes change, there soon won't be any present landowners left." When We mentioned this to another landowner in the neighborhood, the neighbor said, "Well, at least Frank Is well enough financed so he would be one of. the last to have to give up." The talk all centered around land prices. A farm had recently sold at below $40 an acre which in 'boom times had been held in the face of an offer of $212 an acre. One of these men had himself tried to buy part of the property at half the highest bid years before the boom raised land prices to high levels. Certainly there must be opportunity in the present situation for someone who has the vision/to see what lies ahead, Sometime when we can catch Joe Ferstl to spin us a yarn of the older days, we intend to get a real story out of him. Joe bought his firet SO acres west of St. Benedict at $9 an acre, and at that time, 1878, paid about $8 taxes on it. Now he has to pay about $100 taxes on the same eighty. Joe waa a farm hand when he bought his frist land, and he continued working out five more years, till he had saved enough to start for himself. Then, two years later, he felt able to afford a wife, and he and Mrs. Ferstl have now lived on the same farm and in the same house all the years since, though they built onto the original dwelling as their family grew and required more accommodations. We should be able to get a story from Joe that would show something >of how Kossuth was built up. The Topic at Titonka had the following to say last week of an Algon- ian long known in the Algona, Sexton, Wesley, and Titonka neighborhoods: "'L. B, Krantz, of Algona, who spends his time between home and his farms southwest of Titonka, paid the Topic office a pleasant visit Thursday, while in town on business. (For many years he has spent a lot of his time raising cattle and hogs, buying and selling, but this last year has been one that took a master mind to bring profit out of PATTERSONS' SHEEP BRING GOOD PRICE ANO A PROFIT Last week's Advance had a brief dispatch from Burt saying that Sen. O. W. Patterson had marketed his fihcep. In that connection the Burt Monitor said: "G. W. and C. W. Patterson last week marketed all but about 250 of the sheep they have had on feed since last summer. The Pattersons were fortunate enough to clean up a modest profit on these sheep, which were shipped in from the Montana range. The selling price averaged a little better than 6c for the entire lot. This cleans up what George had on feed, but he is already beginning to replenish his lots, and expects to ship In around a thousand head." an Investment, no matter what kind of a business a man follows. In politics he is a republican, and he supported Hoover for president, but he believes that the new president will make a man fully a« capable to meet the emergencies of the farmers as anyone the American people coultt select. He hoped he would turn out to be a second Teddy and that an upturn In nil business would follow his Inauguration after March 1."
