J. Payne, Editor . C. H. Klamp, Field Reporter. KLAMP TELLS OF VACATION AUTO JAUNT By Chas. H. Klamp. This is a little story ot a .recent vacation trip we made to Claytoi and Delaware counties. We let Algona at 3:15 one morning and drove via Mason City, Wayerly, Oelweln, and Strawberry Point. We had paving that far, then gravel to Edgewood. After that we drove over a new road of yellow clay. This road will be covered with crushed limestone in a short time, for work was to start'this. week .Thursday- That country is hilly, and highways are not built as easily as they are on our level land. We.saw rocks 100 feet high which had Been moved out of the way of the road bed. Fanning Is Different. •Farming there is also somewhat different from ours. The farmers drill most of their small grain in nd their oats were better this ear than Kossuth's. The average yield ran about 36 bushels to the acre. One field ran 70 bushels. Threshing is also different Steam engines are used which burn wood. Farmers sack the grain, ami it is loaded into wagons. Three men do the unloading. One man sets a sack in the granary another throws it into a bin, and the third empties the sack. A dollar a day was b'eing paid for the labor. • We saw one of the old-fashioned slat strawstackers at work, and it was doing a good Job. Meets Tool Inventor.

His tractor stood on the roadside at the edge of the field. An old car drove by, and Cassem saw it stop near the tractor, but thought probably the occupants were after gophers. A short time later, however, when he and his son went to the tractor, they discovered a quantity of distillate and the tools had been taken, llememberlng the old car, Cassem checked up the tire marks In the soft ground, and, thinking possibly he might know the driver, In- vestlgated. Sure enough, the car he suspected carried Ores that made marks like those left beside the tractor. 180 he got In touch with the sheriff of Kos- sutfc county and Fartttault county, Minnesota, and told them his suspicion?. .
