W. Plaisicr's, near Titonka, was busy last Thursday. We dropped in just to pay a social call, but didn't stay long, for they were threshing and wo feared there might be an extra fork around. J. W. had 50 acres of oats, and he was getting about 32 bushels to the acre. There are two boys and four girls in the family, but only one girl is at home. Last year the father died, leaving the farm to be managed by tho eldest son John, who has 160 acres to work and is therefore plenty busy. * * * * Nick Heesch, a mile east of Titonka, has a fine herd of purebred Guernseys, and is milking 30 cows at present. Guernseys have been his hobby for the last ten years. He was putting up his second cutting of alfalfa, and was getting around six loads from foui- acres, which seemed a good yield for dry weather. Alfalfa is the best kind of hay for dairy cattle. Mrs. Heesch was a. Geisking girl from Woden, and she and Nick have farmed the 190-acrc farm they are on ever since they were married. Nick, in fact, has been there all his life.

They were also to make visits at Joliet and Bloomington, 111., and in Pennsylvania, and planned to be away five or six weeks. This will include a stop to see the world's fair. * * * * The men were threshing at John Pannkuk's, five miles north of Titonka, when we called last week Tuesday. The crew John waf threshing with was just starting work, John's oats being the firs job. It looked last week as if oaU in most Kossuth fields would turn out pretty well after all. John' were running about 35 bushels t the acre, and it was of fine quality The Pannkuks have six children and they help operate the 113-acr farm, which is well improved. * » * • We called on Mrs. Joe Kline, fiv miles northwest of Titonka, las week Tuesday. Joe was threshin at Pannkuk's, so we didn't get t see him. The Klines moved her seven years ago from Bancroft an own the 80 acre farm they occupj They have three children, Georg 12, Laura, 10, and Joseph, 4.

He lias a largo shed with a metal roof, and this has hccn very hot, so now lie has built another «hed which lie is covering with straw, this to he for shade. It is interesting to watch the steers go to the feed hunks and eat till they grunt, then go back to the shed and wait to get hungry 'if.uni. * « » » Otto Wilbcrg, a mile west and a half mile south of Seneca, has a Metropolitan Life IGO-acre farm, and is pleased over the way the oinpany is improving it. r lhe mipany has been stringing new ince, and lias built a new corn ib with granary overhead, size 7x3G, IS feet to the caves.

If when papers are missed, subscribers will promptly notify the Advance by telephone or postal card, substitute copies will bo sent at once. The mailing is done by machinery, and there ought to be no misses, but when misses happen the mailers know nothing of it unless notified. * * * * Mr. and Mrs. J. 0.

Paul is now pasturing 15 of the mules which appeared in the recent rodeo here, and, remembering the old wartime rodeos, he tried to ride one of them the other day. He says he was thankful that nobody was around ,o se him thrown off. Paul says he would like to go .hrough his army experience again, mt like most Americans he thinks Jncle Sam ought to keep out ot any future European wars. There are 275 acres in the farm where Paul lives, but some 1GO acres are in pasture and timber. He has just threshed, and his oats went 17% bushels. He has 43 acres of fine-looking corn. This is his second year on the place. Outstanding on the farm aro Paul's three Percherons. His stallion, now in service, won first place at the county fair last year, and his three-year-old stallion won sweepstakes. He also has a Pcrch- eron mare, and all three animals are pedigreed. advertisement brought him custom from all parts of the county, even as far away as Elmore. Paul also has a herd of Shorthorn cattle. Paul's wife, formerly Erma Phillips, is a daughter of M. N. Phillips, west of Algona, and they have four sons and one daughter.

Kossuth Schools Have Fair Exhibit icople have complained rouble of late. oC this D. A. Nielsen, 2% miles south of Seneca, was picking up old lumber ind piling it out of the way in the •ard when we called the last day of July. His landlord, A. J. Weher, Everly, had had an old barn .aken down and bad built a new one, 32x42, 12 feet to the caves. The painters had just completed the first coat of paint. The house was being remodeled, and George Johnson and his men were doing the work. * * * * Fred Haack, 2 ] /2 miles south and a half mile west of Lone Rock, farms 1GO acres. He was at a neighbor's threshing when wo called last week Wednesday, and when he is away Mrs. Haack and of oats went seven bushels to the acre and the other ten. This week he is cutting his corn for silage. The visitors thought the country here looked like Paradise. * * * • When we called last Thursday on Chris Brandt, who farms a quarter section a mile east of Titonka, we found Mrs. Brandt canning beets and tomatoes, and she said that she cans a winter's supply of garden stuff and fruits every summer. The Brandts have a large, modern home, and they have owned this farm many years. Besides the 160 acres which Chris farms himself he owns an acreage which he rents to a neighbor. He was away threshing when we called. Grain around Titonka seemed to be yielding better than in the Algona neighborhood. Few farmers there have been getting fewer than 30 bushels an acre. school board and Mrs. Agnes Stewart is secretary. Leg is Broken in 3 Places in Fal! "Where you going, Sonny?'

Allocation of exhibit space was announced .Friday by the state department of public instruction. The exhibit will compete with displays from 25 other counties in Iowa for the best exhibit of countywide school work.

She farms 160 acres with Ue help of four daughters and one son, Clarence.. The latter started threshing at Bonno Shutter's last week Wednesday. Mr. Anderson died ten years ago. The family has tenanted this farm five years. This year there were 65 acres of small grain and 54 acres of corn. The gram looked good for this season. We called on Dan Meyer, who lives six miles north of Titonka last Thursday and he was shocking the last of his small grain.

Mr. Weber recently spent some time with daughters in Illinois, and also spent a day at the fair in Chicago. He tells us that farmers in western Illinois now take meals with them when they go threshing, for the oat yield is so light that they do not know where they will be at mealtime. » * « • The Cresco Embroidery club met with Hattie Brown last week Wednesday, and roll call was ans- The Mrs. Walter Barr, and musical selections were given by Mrs. M.
