The Ricker boys own that 240-acre farm on the west of No. 169 where you notice the big white house, the big barn, and a block silo after you get over the hill north of the No. 18 intersection.

He lives on his father's farm of 80 acres. The elder Zunkel has owned this farm 40 years, and the buildings and the yard are well kept. Roy keeps purebred Belgian horses, and at present has a stallion and three mares. He sold a 3- year-old Belgian inare to E. J.

Bierstedt, three miles north and a mile east of Fenton, owns a section of land. He came to Ko,s- suth in 1871 with his parents, and they honiesteaded a few miles west of Burt, in the Marlow neighborhood. They came here in a covered wagon and lived in it three months, then built a sod house. A. J. remarked that there were real hard times then. The first two. .seasons grasshoppers took the crops, and most homesteaders left the country- A. J. commented on th,e way people want to go places nowadays. Then they were thankful if they had even a wagon. He »ow owns his third automobile, a model T (Ford fee has fcad ten years, Theia flgurei or« baled en the laletl retail regittralion figures from R.

Since January flrsr, Chevrolet has told in excess of 425,000 passenger cars and trucks. tan there be any stronger recommendation for a car than this move to the farm where George Scuffham now lives southeast of Irvington. The Wolfs have two children, a boy, Gail, 6, and Helen, 6, and both are in school. * * • » Farming here is in a bad enough way, but our farmers are in luck compared with many farmers elsewhere. Take as an example this report from the Sioux Valley News, published at Canton, S. D.: "From 100 miles north of Canton, and on up in South Dakota, and across the line in Minnesota, there is not a spear of living grass or vegetation, Whole sections of farm land haven't even been touched, as far as harvesting is concerned. (Residents of the vicinity of Madison, Minn., say there hasn't been enough rain all summer to wet a gnat's ear. Grain fields are unharvested, and are so thin and short one can drive along the dry, dusty highway in ai car and see a pheasant running through uncut grain fields ten rods from the road. Many groves are dying from lack of moisture. In the town of Milbank, the streets and yards are full of dead tree leaves' as is common the latter part of October." Among * * * * recent Algona were the B. H. Meyers visitors of Titonka neighborhood. Mr. Meyer, who was born in Grundy county, can fairly claim to be a real Kossuth oldtjmer, for he has lived in the county 63 years, or since 1S80. Mr. and Mrs. Meyer have five children, but only two, a toy $ad a «irl, are WIMOUIMT America can't be fooled when it comes to spotting the best "buy" in any field. America knows too much about motor cars for that. So when one certain car wins almost as many buyers as the next two put together, you know the answer: IT MUST BE BETTER. And that's what the new Chevrolet Six most certainly is. Chevrolet is better looking—Chevrolet has better bodies—built not just of steel alone, but of steel reinforced by a sturdy hardwood frame. Chevrolet has a better engine—six cylinders for economy, cushion balancing for killing vibration! And Chevrolet gives better value—a long line-up of modern features which no other low-priced car can match. Now is the time to start thinking about a new car for winter! And when you do so, think of the way Chevrolet is leading in sales. Could you ask for any stronger recommendation for a low-priced car than that?
