Buy Chubb Section In Grant Township [From the Swea City Herald.] More than passing Interest Is shown In northwest Kossuth over the purchase ot the former Chubb section In Grant township by Sen. Geo. W. Patterson, fiurt, and his brother Howard, sheep rancher at Billings, Mont. The vendor was the Stockholders Investment company, Des Moines National bank. The sell- iing price has not been given out, but It is generally understood the Pattersons got a bargain, it previous tentative offers are a guide. Local interest In the transaction lies In the fact that this piece of land has been a landmark more than a generation- For many years it was owned by the Chubbs, Algona, banking and land-owning family whose fortunes fell during the crash of the last decade. The Chubb name is held In high regard in northwest Kossuth by reason of the honorable course members ot the family pursued during the liquidation of the former State bank, Swea City, and as their fortunes otherwise became dissipated In the economic breakdown. Accordingly some local sentiment attaches to the Chubb section, and there is a feeling of satisfaction because title again rests in Kossuth hands, especially of one of its leading citizens, Senator Patterson. Asked Tuesday morning what he was going to do with it, Senator Patterson replied over the telephone that the plans of himself and his brother were not yet matured. At the moment the Pattersons plan to do tiling on the north half in the spring and make some necessary fence repairs. located five miles north of Swea City on road K, this section is without Improvements except fencing. For many years Herman Kluger has operated a public pasture on a quarter section and more, and during the last two years George Butter- Held and his sons have cropped the remainder of the section with flax, corn, and oats, using a combine and other powetr equipment. Senator Patterson said it was possible he and his brother would continue to crop a portion ot the land. His own 480 acres near Hurt is seeded down, except 65 acres, and for that reason he feels a need for more grain-raising. The senator has been engaged heavily in stock-raising in recent years, particularly sheep. : FAREWELL FOR ELSIE HASKELL AT LU VERNE Britt Farmer Has Unique Scheme to Tame Unruly Bull FARM NEWS W. J.

Lovrein, formed district court Judge who now practices law at Spencer and Fort Dodge, has brought suit here for $810 against the North Iowa Grain Co. for conversion of 1700 bushels of corn at 30c and 1500 bushels of oats at 20c. Judge Lovrein says that he is the owner of a quarter section in Sec. 19, Wesley township, north ot Sexton, and that the tenant, one William Neuroth, sold the corn and oats to the North Iowa Go's Sexton elevator without his knowledge. Apparently the elevator manager did not know that there was a landlord's Hen against the crops. The Judge also brought a landlord's lien suit against Neuroth, who, he says, owes $900 in unpaid rent. The petition claims a lien against Neuroth's farm Personal Jfoperty. A peculiarity of the suit fs that Judge Lovrein says Neuroth did not rent the farm from him but from one John Wright who had no authority to lease the' land.

Langs Are Attending Assembly— The Rev. and Mrs. David (Lang [Brttt Kews-Tribunc.] It fell to the lot of Brick Christensen, Britt township farmer, to put a Tlclous bull under control. He has a fine dairy herd, but the head of the herd—like In many other herds —became somewhat bossy and was dangerous to have about the farm, especially where children have to help with the .chores and be In the fields often where the bull grazes. So Mr. Christensen decided that be would tame the animal. He took a horse collar and placed It on the bull, attached some names and tugs, hitched him to a stone boat and led him about to giro him exercise. The bull soon began to show fatigue and would He down to rest, but Erick urged him on to more work. When the animal was subdued to the extent that his nature softened he was turned loose. The next day his lesson In the harness was repeated. Mr. Christensen Is rigging up a harness so he can hitch him on the plow with _a .team of horses and make him carry his share of the burden. He reasons out that this exercise will do the bull good, will make him more gentle, and will teach him to come under the mastery of man. Girl Who Had Her Horse Shod Here Sends Card Back (L. A.
