TUiiidc and her (laughter were preparing for threshers. There were about G5 acres of oats to thresh, hut II. was so liot and sultry that tlio idea of threshing was not welcome. However, there was a good rain that night, and plenty Friday, so it was cooler when threshing was resumed. Mrs. Baade's son had been away threshing two weeks, of timothy and clover .which he ^ow Mrs. Abbas have two girls and one boy. The oldest child, Dolores, 4, will be in school in another year or so. Arnold, 3, and Eunice, one year, will, however, be at home for some time yet to occupy their mother's spare moments. ***** A. J. Drown, accompanied by Dwight Hardgrovc, left Algona Sunday with a show herd of 11 head of Guernsey for the Mitchell fair. On leaving Osage he will then and was putting up when we were Mrs. there. Herman has lived on this place 35 years, and ho and Mrs. Franzon have three girls and one boy. A modern home graces the premises. * * * » Much desired rains fell last Thursday night and Friday, and though farmers were not through threshing they welcomed it.

The contests will continue for seven nights of the fair, from Aug. 24 through Aug. 30. Over 150 head of wild horses and steers are being shipped here for the contest. Events will include broncho-busting, steer riding, calf roping, bulldogging, trick and fancy riding and roping, and other famous sports of the plains. Portland Maid is Picked as County No. 1 Health Girl Bernice Larson, of the Portland 4-H club, has been selected as the healthiest Kossuth 4-H girl will represent the county in We had a little visit last week Wednesday with "Hank" Dreyer merchant at Ledyard.

He was formerly buttermaker at the Ledyard creamery, serving 22 years tall. Her score in the county contest was 98.5.

Other girls competing were Thelma Priest, of the Bancroft Busy Pals; Doris Genrich, of the Lu Verne club; Bernice Dodds, of the Now he has been in the grocery business 12 years. Everybody calls him "Hank," and he is a great kidder. He remarked that he had an interest in a cheese factory, and no sells cheese at his own price; also some delayed work around home. The grain they were threshing belonged to a neighbor, for they rent out nearly ail their 160 acres, saving only enough for a good-sized garden, which shows lots of care. * * * * Though now past 76, Charles Culm, who lives on No. 160, is still ictivc, in spite of having to get iround with a cane. Mr. Kuhu has ived in Kossuth ever since Sep- .erahcr 21, 1869, and has been a nisy citizen for 64 years. For the ast 45 years he has farmed around Algona, but he now lives retired on three acres just north of the Bounty machine barns at the northeast corner of the fair grounds. Mrs. Kuhn died in 1929, and Charles has lived alone during the ast five years. The one child, jordon, lives just a block north of lis father's place, and there are two grandchildren, who are Grand- Da Kuhn's pride, Helen, 15, and Bobby, six. Gordon tunes pianos in this territory, and his wife, who lias one of the finest gardens in Lhe Algona neighborhood, has cabbage, tomatoes, and various other vegetables early every spring for other gardeners. Her father-in- law, Charles, prides himself on having been a charter Advance subscriber and a faithful subscriber ever since the paper was founded in 1901, * * * * When we called Friday on Ben Weber, who lives ten miles northeast of Algona, in Plum Creek township, we found him repairing his grain bins. Ben said he planned to thresh the grain on his 160-acre farm as soon as it was dry. The Webers have two daughters who are a great help to their mothei with the housework. Ben seems to think the outlook for the farmer is much better than it has been for some time, * * * * D. D.

The Hormel organization from five states attended. Mr. Cook reported that plans for the future were discussed by the Hor- mol employes. Mr. Trainer, the lo- al Hormel representative, also at- ended from here. * * * * Last week Tuesday we called on rank Pruismann, who farms a ract of 18 acres three miles east f Titonka.

Now that they are through with the run they will do some odd jobs which have been accumulating around- home while they were away, and their women are planning a vacation from doing the chores nights. * • * • Earl Miller, Cresco farmer, three miles south of Algona, suffered a painful accident last week Tuesday while he was helping thresh at Clarence Rochleau's.

Meyer, of German township, had lost 15 out of 75 hogs from bleeding neuritis, and that 30 others were sick. Asked about this disease Monday, Dr. L. W. Fox, Algona, said it was an infection for which no cure had been Found, and that as a rule hogs affected with it die. There is some comfort this year for farmers who lose hogs, for under the corn-hog contract they will get $5 a head on three-fourths of their 1932-33 average whether the hogs live or not.
