The whole number was 35, which is about one-third of the township schooil enrollment. A change in rules this year permitted 7th and 8th graders to enter, tout not all competed. John Shirley, 1 Algona, pronounced the words, and Mesdames L. A. Crulkshank and 'Robert Harvey were Judges. Mrs. Robert Sarchet, rural schools day chairman, presided. The church _ was comfortably full of interested parents and friends. That the annual contests .are stimulating interest In spelling was attested by the fact that in every division some spellers could not be downed on words for their grades which appear In the spellers in dally use. Mr. Shirley had to end each of the three contests by using words from the contest book used In the recent county spelldown. MARRIAGE PERMITS DROP FROM 134 TO 99 IN HEAR HERE A loss In number of marriage licenses .issued in 1932 as compared with 1931 is shown in Kossuth and surrounding counties. This is •blamed partially on the live-day marriage law, which was repealed this spring, and also to the depression. Kossuth had 99 licenses in 1932, and 134 in 1931. Divorces also Tho Dan Croons moved March 1 from east of Corwlth to one o£ the PAGE NINE ters, and this la about his usual number. -Mrs. Welner had a fine flock ot week-old White Rock chicks, 540 suved from 550 hatched. The hatching eggs came from her own flock. Mrs. Weiner was Knth- ryn Grandgenett, of St. Benedict, before marriage. Her'father,'John Grandgenett, is a big corn grower, fanning 540 acres. We suppose his •big cribs of corn are worth another "hun'ert tausent," more or less, every tkne the price of corn goes up five cents. Mr. and Mrs. Weiner have four sturdy children, three girls and a boy. ' * * * * G. O. Roland, Melvin 111., brother-in-law of Dr. H. N. Boshel, of the same place, has come out to Iowa to operate the 'Boshel 520- acre farm south of Sexton which had been operated several years by the Grosenbachs, who also came from Illinois.

They had a colt hitched with three older horses, and when a son of Mr. Green got off the disc to fix something about the harness the colt took fright and both teams got away. The colt got the worst of It, being cut by the disk. The driver was not hurt. Last week Tuesday we called on the Nick Bertes, three miles south of Irvington. They, have lived on tliis farm ten years. There are four boys and one girl in the family. The Bertes take great pride in keeping their yards and buildings in fine shape. Some small evergreens they planted were doing well, but in tho last few weeks they have been dying off for some unknown cause. The Berte buildings are of a good size. The house is 30x30, with a large porch on the east. It has a full basement. The barn is 42x36 feet, built of hollow tile. The machine shed and garage is 60x24. Nick keeps Ms machinery under cover. He has 30 head of cattle, Including ten milch cows of the Shorthorn type. * * * • At the Richard Van Horn farm six miles northeast of Wesley, men were at work last Thursday on basement .for a new house, 28x26 two-story, with cistern, 16x8. Frit: Gerdes, Woden, and his crew were doing the work. Mr. Van Horn has had more than his share of hare luck. Two years ago he lost his wife, and last February, in the very coldest weather, his house burned down. This farm ds owned by Mr. Van Horn's mother, who lives at Woden.
