The Schrooders are milking 13 Holsteins and have 90 spring pigs. There are two remarkable little dogs on the place. They bark when anyone is coming with an automobile a half mile away. The Schroeders bought the dogs from a stranger who happened along. At the time the Schroeders thought they were buying pups, -but the dogs have never grown any larger. While we were talking politics with Clark Scuffham, Plum Creek township, recently, he said that when he was a street car conductor in London many years ago he operated a "tram" which ran only a short distance from the Herbert Hoover London home. Clark says maybe that was one of the reasons why he voted for the New Deal at the last election. Warner Beenken, a mile east and 4% miles north of Titonka, farms 200 acres, and he has lour boys who help him: Herbert, 11; Gilbert, 7; Orville, 6; and Leonard, 3. The older boys will soon be going back to school. The Beenkens milk ten cows and have 85 spring pigs.

They had the county gravel it a few years ago at a cost of $160, and the job was well worth the money. The Steckers believe in keeping things in good shape. They have a fine 'brick house, 38x30, two stories, . « * • We recently drove by the Walter Bleich farm in Plum Creek township. On one side was a fine field of 30 acres of soy beans, ,well tended; on the other side, good-looking corn. The oats wero being harvest-, od, and they were pretty short, but the field was fairly clean of weeds. Walter has a sizeable herd of dairy cows to milk, and he appears to be getting ahead as fast as any of the young farmers who started in depression times. * * * * Mrs. Cash Helmers, right at the north edge of Algona, threshed 360 bushels of oats from seven acres.

The daughter Josephine is at summer school at Cedar Falls, preparing to teach.. The Steckers bought their farm of 240 of the way on No. 13, which is 'being constructed from Waukon to McGregor. The part of the road that has been finished is wonderfully well done, and the change from the old hill and ditch winding road that it replaces is astounding. We got past the workers partly by using our newspaper badge. As we passed we noted great steam shovels tearing a roadbed out of the side of bluffs and also saw stone quarries high up on the bluffs from which great slabs of rock were be- many cases. Now the Brltt News- Tribune reports that J. M. Townsend, who has the first farm west of the Rainbow Inn at the west edge ot Britt, got a yield of ' SO bushels. Editor Roberts says: "Mr. Townsend drilled the oats in, and they grew on land that had been used in sugar-beet culture in past years. With the oats planted deep on a well pulverized bed, the conditions were exactly right for a season of limited rainfall and extreme heat."

Members of the Eagle-Swea beef club took part In the tour with their leaders, Cecil and Orville Thoreson. PRICES For a while prices on merchandise will be a fight between shortsighted selfishness and far-sighted common sense. We are waiting until the farmer's buying power is bettered before we raise prices. The new deal is going over, in fact it has to go over or else we are all under. It is going to be inconvenient and bother some of us but it will be a blessing for people out of employment facing the coming winter. If the millions put to work at decent wages have money to buy eggs, butter, pork, and other things. Supply and demand will raise the price of farm products. The farmer is the guy that I am interested in. Living prices for farm products is the key to the whole situation. It is a wonderful piece of legislation. The big stores in the cities have to pay their girl clerks a living wage and hire more of them. It is making our customers more anxious to buy, they are not near as fussy and particular as they were a month ago. They seem glad to get these good new shoes before they advance in price. I like closing the stores at 10 o'clock Saturday night. It will give us poor slaves a chance to get home before Sunday morning. I do not understand why the humane society did not think of this years ago. Keeping stores open until 12 to 1 o'clock is simply one of the relics of barbarism handed down from one generation to the other. It is funny how long people stick to an old custom. I remember a way back when I used to follow behind the wagon husking the down row. Some one found a better way and showed us how to do it. Franklin Roosevelt is not only showing us new methods but he is also telling us to abide by them. It is our only way out and I am going to do my part. Jimmie Neville "The Shoe Man" Algona, la.
