Present at This is a good time to keep a close watch against poultry thieves. The Fenton Reporter says Ello Rahn has now been robbed two years in succession. Recently more than 70 Plymouth Rocks were stolen from his farm, and later 25 more were taken. Last year the same thing happened. In driving] about the county we see Jargel flocks in farm yards, and they present a big temptation to thieves. * * * * The Bancroft Register reports that Florian Hunt recently received 110 head of white-iface calves from North Dakota which he will ' feed for the market. * * * * Jos.

Schueler, five miles north and 1% miles west ot Bancroft, farms IfiO acres which he bought 17 years ago. For the coming year two of his boys have rented a place a half mile west, where T. L. Rowell now lives. The boys vere picking corn'when we called ast Thursday. They had picked heir seed corn e_arly and had it on >pikes overhead in the corn crib. In 30 days they will take it down and iut it into a room upstairs in the louse. John said he had never had) any trouble with his corn not grow- ng. The Schuelers feed cattle every winter, but have not put any on Butter Brings Only 7cin Saskatchewan, and-Eggs 5c Recent visitors in Kossuth have been Mr. and Mrs. William Garman, Frontier, Sask., and their two daughters. Frontier is four miles north of the central Montana line. The Garmans have lived there 20 years. They came by car, a distance of 1200 miles. The family lives on a 1280- acre ranch which. Mr. Garman. owns. A son was left at home to take care of the property, Half of the land lies fallow every year, that being a dry country. The principal crops are wlfeat, oats, 'barley, and flax. 'When the Garmans left home wheat there was bringing 45c Mr. Garman found that in this country it was bringing 60c, the result of our inflationary policies. He was somewhat supris' ed to hear farmers here com plain bitterly of butter and egg prices. At Frontier butter was bringing a high of only 7c and ggs 5c. The money of both the U. S. and Canada is now depreciated. Mr. Garman brought traveler's checks before he left home, but he carried a little Canadian money, and he found it dis- iounted 10 per cent in this country. iSome time ago Mr. Garman sent down three Canadian dollar bills to pay his Advance subscription. The subscription price in Canada is $2.50, and the three Canadian bills brought exactly $'2.49% in American money. That was after the American dollar had become depreciated too. In the section of Saskatchewan where the Garmans live, land is not sold in terms of money, but in terms of wheat. For instance a oman.will buy a quarter-section and agree to deliver 4,000 bushels of wheat for it. Then he delivers one-foui'th of his annual crop til! the debt is paid.
