V • • * Jerdel Kline, who works for John Brown on the latter's farm two miles south of Algona, won the purebred Guernsey bull calf offered by Judge Quarton and the latter's farming partner to the boy winning highest rank as showman in a judging contest at the county fair. Jerdel also won fourth place on his Guernsey calf, which he showed as a 4-H club member. For the past two years he has accompanied Mr. Brown in exhibits of the Brown herd of Guernseys at county fairs in a regular circuit. For such a young fellow, only 14, he is to be congratulated on his initiative and ability to learn this type of work. He has, in fact, proven himself capable of handling a man's job in this line. • • * • In a recent letter a farmer in Hall county, Neb., county seat at Grand Island, said that two weeks ago Sunday, or on September 2, the first real rain in the whole summer fell there.

He continued: • • • • "Grass has started to grow in astures, and the rain will make a ood seed bed for next year's crops. 'here is absolutely no corn in this icinity this year, and the few armers who have stock are haul- ng corn fodder nearly 20 miles to 11 the silos and carry what they ave till spring. * * * » "You'll remember that we also ad practically no crops last year, nd two years ago the grasshopper ilayed havoc with our corn, enewed drought, with the This well :nown depression, has caused a lumber of families in our neigh- jorhood to give up farming and move to Oregon or California to ry some other line. We have al- eady had four farm sales this month, and many more are wondering what they will live on clur- ng the winter. * * * * 'The North Platte river, which lows through our land, has been dry since early May, and water has had to be pumped from wells or stock till the wells went dry. We have our silo full, also a rench. We had to haul the fodder 5 to 20 miles. * "Our corn all burned up and so withered that it fell over. We were, however, fortunate to secure corn to fill our silos, though it was a big expense. We sold all of our range stock early in June, and it ooks as if it was a fortunate hing." • • * • B. F. Sparks & Son have had a real harvest from bees which they have in colonies all over western Kossuth. They have been raising bees at a profit during the last few years. Last week Monday they delivered more than 20,000 pounds of honey to Sioux City, where it is pooled by the Sioux City Honey association. Ten tons of honey is a lot of sweetness, but it is only hair of this year's crop. Last spring more than 400 sets of package bees from the south were bought, but during a period of two months during the dry spell they had to be fed sugar, more than two tons being required. Now they do not have to worry about feed, but are kept busy caring for the swarms, which number close to 500. B. F. Sparks lives at Hobarton, but the son Don farms five miles southwest of Ai- gona. The elder Mr. Sparks vltes everyone to inspect the workshop" back of his home at Hobarton, where all hives and accessories are made, A large display of machinery was on hand ait the county fair last week. Such modern devices niaice farming much easier, but it does lessen labor for farm hands and so puts men out of employment. Nevertheless farmers like to know what machinery is available, ana there are many farmers in a situ- atloa where they must rely on modern machinery to get their work done. » » * • farm near Woden we his home. The farm is operated by Ray and AVilliam Hartshorn anil their mother, who moved there from Scarville. The boys are cous- ings of Elmer Hartshorn, Algona, barber, and they have had good crops this year. Woden is in Hancock county but near the Kossuth line, east of Titonka. * * # * On a farm near Woden we met Henry Franzen Sr. and his son-in- law, Herman Limberg, the other day, both hammering away on a new 24x14 chicken house. Henry was so businesslike about it that we at first thought he was a regular carpenter, maybe even a contractor and builder; however, he is owner of the land and the landlord, Herman being his tenant and the farm being one of several owned by Mr. Franzen, we believe. Both are Advance subscribers. They were working on Labor Day, and so were we. W. J. Payne, Charles Klamp, and Eleanor Payne have been at Des Moines since early in the week, attending a Register & Tribune sales convention. The Paynes left Monday; Mr. Klamp Tuesday. Mr. Payne cuts a big figure at these conventions, for he is one of the leading Register & Tribune salesmen and has charge of local salesmen in more than 20 counties. * * * * William Schauberger, three miles north and 1% miles west of Bancroft, was putting the last load of hay into his barn when we called Saturday. The barn is a big one with two lofts and two large doors, one on the south, the other facing west, this being an L-shaped barn. All straw had been threshed into the barn, and all hay had also been put into it. Mr. Schauberger remarked that he hoped to have enough rough feed for all winter. He keeps a good-sized herd of horses, with which all of the field work is done on 200 acres. Mr. Schauberger likes to talk German, and he greets us with "Kannt du auch Deutsch sprechen?" Well, "wir sind Deutsch geboren, und so kann es gut sprechen, auch ein wenig lesen." * * » * A E Jorgensen, who lives on and farms'a half section two miles north and 1% miles west of Bancroft, was repairing fence Satur- union Sunday of Mr. Ruby's mother, two of his brothers, and four sisters, all of the Emmetsburg neighborhood. Two of his uncles who farm near Duncan, and three cousins from Chicago also came. * * * # Oliver Mathson, two miles north and two miles east of Bancroft told us Monday that he and his wife had a new boy, born August 3 named Melvin Dean, have a girl, Arlene, 5. They also Oliver has been farming 80 acres, but for next year he has rented 80 acres joining his farm on the north. Portland Pear Trees Yield Well This Season This season was favorable for iears in northern Iowa. AY. H. freeman, across the street nitersec- tion southeast of the Bryant build- ng, had an exhibit which won first place at last week's county fair. His ree bears Flemish Beauties. W. J. Payne, who lives a block west of Tudge Quarton's, has a young tree which bore a half peck, all big ones. Reports from many other trees in the county have not been received. - * - Ledyarrt Fanner Kctircs. Ledyard, Sept. 12— J. H. Welfare had a sale Saturday of his chickens, hogs, machinery, etc., preparatory to moving to his home in town. Charles Hilferty is moving to the AVelfaro place at the edge of town. TRADE IN SALE!
