When we called last week Monday at L,. R. and L. w. Kessel's, 1% miles south and one mile west of Elmore, we found both men sick with the flu, and U R, had been in critical condition. The Sinclair oil station at the Jones and State street corner, Algona, has been operated since before ' Christmas by Edw. Sanftner, a son lot, Mr. and Mrs. Cue Sanftner, of Swea prominent farmers south City. We learn that Gilbert Nelson, former Tltonka produce buyer who bought part of the C. E.

At Carl PJetland'a, a mile south and two miles west of Elmore, we were informed last week Monday that the family would move March 1 to a farm three miles west and a mile north of Buffalo Center. This Is a larger farm than the 80 which the Fjetlancls have now. The daughter Genevievo was married to Selmer G. Heggcn December 11. Mrs. Fjetland said It was just 20 years from the day of her own marriage. The Pjetlands raised more than 500 ducks last season. When wo called on /hem last June the barnyard was woe farm buildings. H. G. Kleken, near 'Burt, was an office caller Saturday. A few months . ago he lost his wife, and his daughter Velma, who was a high school Junior at Algona part of last year but had to quit because of sickness, Is keeping house for him. Mr. Rieken has one other child, a married eon. Ben Knox, farmer -near Burt, was reported seriously sick with pneumonia last week. The Burt Monitor sadl, however, that his condition was favorable for recovery. The attack was attributed to chilling on a drive to a neighbor's after he -had overheated himself in starting a balky auto engine. We were at Thos. Johnson's, a mile south and 2% miles west of Elmore, last week Monday. The John- spring, pig-« that would weigh 350 pounds. The Eichhorns milk a good string of cows, and they do all work on the farm themselves. A few years back they tried living In a modern house at Elmore which they own, but C. L. found that he could not make ends meet In town, so he moved back to the farm. He did not buy an automobile, but put this money Into tile and devoted the reclaimed ground to beets, his crops averaging more than 15 tons to the acre. This week he Is on the grand Jury. There is another story in this week's farm department about C. L., 'but that wUs picked up at the Advance office. The Advance recently reported that 19 out of 22 cattle on the Edw.

(Frank (Speedy) (Bauers, who farms east of Swea City, is billed for a wrestling match at Eagle's hall, 'Davenport, this week Thursday evening. 'He Is billed there as a "Mason City farm boy wonder." Frank has made a good reputation as wrestler, but between times he Is a real farmer, with a fine family to work for. He is to wrestle Charley OPappas, "the Terrible Greek" of East Mollne, III. 'Florian Hellman, southeast of Bancroft, on the Ramsey-Portland line, had business at Algona (Friday. the remaining fearing they might develop aeaso later and contaminate the herd, so last week -Monday the 19 head were trucked to an Albert Lea packing plant, and Mr. Droess- )er, accompanied by Dr. L.

All were found to be infected. The other three cattle and • some calves have since been disposed of, and the barn has been thoroughly cleaned.

KOSSUTH BONDED FOR $1,539,000 ON ROAD PROGRAM Kossuth county's bonded indebtedness for roads is $1,539,000, of which $1,245,000 is for state primary roads and $274,000 for county roads. The million and a quarter for primary roads will be paid by the state under a law passed a few years ngo whereby the state took over all county bonds for primary roads. The $274,000 must be paid by the county, but installments are scattered over years, with complete payment by 1942. In addition to the county road bonds there is one In- stalment left on bridge bonds, the amount being $18,500. The primary road 'bonds, with year of Issue and Interest, follow; Interest Year 4 — 1928 4U - 1928 4V4 1928 4 J /2 1928 5 - 1929 4% ._ 1930 The county issues are 6 1920 5 1920 5% 1921 4% - 1922 These county issues were Amount $100,000 200,000 200,000 80,000 100,000 365,000 38,000 46,000 90,000 100,000 issued for larger amounts, but a great deal has been paid oft, leaving balances as given. The 1922 issue is all due in 1942. One of the ways, in which the county pays back to the state money returned to Kossuth for primary road bonds Is through auto license fees. In 1932 Kossuth auto license fees totaled $121,932.84. From this amount the county retained as expense 50c on each license. There were 6680 cars, 900 trucks, 150 trailers, and 15 motorcycles, which, at 50c each, gave the county $3872.50. All the remainder was turned over to the state. The largest amounts for fees fall in December annually. The monthly totals for 1932 follow: December, 1931 $92,222.59 January, 1932 8,072.00 February 7,'937.50 March 4,604.00 April 4,227.25 May 1,535.50 June — 1,284.25 July 699.76 August 619.25 •September 315.00 October ' 447.25 November 68.50 LAKOTA-LEDYARD QUARTET THIRD IN STATE CONTEST !

They have one of the beet improved farms in Kossuth. Mr. Welhousen .aims to feed all his corn. At present he has a dairy herd of 16 cows, but jhis main interest for some years has been hogs, of which he now has a drove of 120. Mr. and Mrs. Wel- houfien have two children, a son and a daughter. The boy is out of school 'and helps his father, but the girl is In the grades at Titonka. visitor Saturday. He had 25 acres t of sugar meets this year, and they 1 netted 384 tons free from dirt, for which he received $4 per ton. While he was here Saturday he paid all of his taxes for. this year. This per- jhaps, Is a record for 1932, leaving out of consideration small taxes. Mr, Eichhorn's 200-acre farm is Just this side of Elmore, in Hebron township, and he and his son R. M. farm it. I There are 11 children In the family, four at home. One son, Sanford, volunteered at the opening of. the World war, and was killed at Chat- , vision, 18th infantry, and was a ; machine, gunner.; 'Mr.' Eichhorn's .farm is free of incubrance. He says . that in the last ten years farmers have been trying to get ahead too fast, and hence got into financial troubles. Slow, conservative progress Is the formula for financial security In the long run, Mr. Eichhorn says.

All of the hig*h cows and two-year-olds were fed legume hays, balanced rations, and silage." At. the annual Fenton creamery meeting a week ago Saturday a statement covering the 1932 business wae read, and it showed that 31,000, or nearly two tons, more butter had been made than In 1931. The butterfat price, however, dropped from 29.55c to 22.37C. Part of this wae regained by a drop from 2.67c to 2.41c in cost of manufacture; also by a drop In other expense. A (number of creameries hereabouts have in part made up for the lowered butter market by increased production at lowered expense. The Fenton creamery is a state brand creamery. The S. W. Allen farm sale last week Tuesday realized a total over $700. Nine Shorthorn cows were sold at prices ranging from $24 and $36, and the horses brought $20 and $40.

Hal nee, of Dayton Ohio, writes: "I weighed 180 so started to take Kruschen. I never was so surprised as when I weighed myself the first week — I lost pounds. I just bought my 3rd Jar and am down to 145—em still taking them and never felt better in my life." (June 17, 1932). To take off fat—take one half teaspoonful of Kruschen Salts in glass of hot water in the morning before breakfast — one bottle tha' lasts 4 weeks costs but a few cents —-get it at A. H. Borchiardt's or any drugstore in America. If this flrsl bottle fails to convince you this is the SA'FE and harmless way to lose fat—your money gladly returned. Don't accept anything but Kruschen because you must reduce safely. PROBLEMS ARE INVITED IF YOU have any printing job* turn them over to us for a perfect result.
