As a result a number o: near accidents have been reported and now that pastures are again becoming green and the grass long enough to -provide forage, animal are not to be pastured in high ways, where 'big* .speed cars migh •hit them with perhaps fatal re suits for both humans and animal and damage to cars.

He is a bee man at Hobarton on a large scale, but because of lack •of flowers this spring, due to the dry season, it has been necessary to feed sugar to the bees. That means more more than one might think, for it has taken two tons of sugar this spring. Fortunately it is not necessary to feed them now, for ample natural feed has been furnished as a result of the buildings. Fences have also been repaired. The R. A. DePues tenant this 160 acres, and they have been on the farm three years. They came here from Mitchell, S. D., eight years ago. There are two children, Elmer and Herman, who help with the work.

The Porters raise their own horses, and they have two sucking colts now. ing 20 cows. They are milk- O. A. Reese, five miles northwest of Ledyard, showed us two fine sucking colts Friday, one a strawberry roan, the other a silver sorrel. He is feeding 18 calves, and he raised all of them but one. It was interesting to see his daughter Lois, 13, and son Kenneth, 11, pick potato bugs. They put them in a large bottle. Kenneth said his father had been going to spray the potato vines ,but the "dope" would cost $2, so he and Lois decided to earn that much by picking off the bugs and saving the spraying expense.

Bartlett, Portland oldtimer who has had to take it easy during the last two or three years because of a weak heart, was an Algona visitor recently and called our attention to the hat he was wearing. He had a bet with Editor Lee 0. Wolfe, of Titonka, that the Bartlett boys, Lewis and Raymond, would raise 10,000 bushels of corn last year, and they did, so Mr. Wolfe had to come across gracefully with the hat. Mr. Wolfe, it appears, is the kind of good sport vho pays his bets when he loses.
