KLABTP, Field RepreBentatlve John Schallin, north of Lotts Creek store, showed us his fine Belgian «tallion last week Monday. The horse is a strawberry roan. John also has some fine- mares and colts. One mare has mothered 11 colts, and she reared all but one. In the yard we noticed the remains of a big stump. It was in the way and John said that instead of grubbing it out he laid an old truck tire over it, eet fire to the tire, and .the blaze burned up the stump. That's an easy way to get rid of a tree stump. * * * * We called on Jas. J. Knoll, southwest of Burt, a week ago Monday. James had been to to'wn, but he always likes to be at home for dinner. These folks keep their yard in fine shape. James said he had nothing new to tell us. We'll try him again sometime. * * * * Bernard Long, northeast of Lone Rock, was "batching it" last week Tuesday. His parents had :one to Ventura for a day's visit. The Rev. E. Fiene, Lotts Creek hurch minister, was just ready to eave when we arrived last week Tuesday, so we did not have the usual visit with him. Like many others er kann ein wenig Deutsch mit uns sprechen. He did show us an invention for smoking sausage. The smoke is generated in a small milding and goes through two lipes to a box where the sausage s well smoked. He says that this way the smoke is cooled, which ;ives a bettor flavor to the meat. * * * * Mrs. John Rath, Lone Rock, told .is last week Tuesday that she and i son were planning to move, to aer farm, southwest of that village. * * * * John W. Hartman, southwest of Lone Rock, was cleaning his chicken house last week Tuesday when ivo called on him. He does this job every week, for John believes in iving his chickens the best of care. * * * o Walter Peter, southeast of Lone Rock, told us a week ago that he had rented a farm near Webster ity, and he thinks that is <i hotter country than ours for raising coin. Well, if so, north Iowa will make it hump some. But we can 10- member when it was thought that this was too far north for corn. Mow corn is a staple crop way up into Minnesota. :{: i-t :!t sft E. E. Meyer, southwest of Ledyard, was hauling straw Thursday. He is one farmer that stacked his straw, and it was nice and bright, good enough for feeding. He is using it for bedding stock. E. E. is feeding a fine lot of steers. He raised a fine crop of corn and has 10,000 bushels cribbed in the yard. There is some hybrid corn, also some Copper King corn. E. E. will move soon to a farm he bought north of the Doan church. He will find himself in a first-class community there. Leonard Christ, northeast of La- i-~ota, is the neighborhood butcher. Last year he butchered 250 head of hogs and cattle. He also farms ]60 acres. Leonard's son Arnold is principal of the Massena high school. Bert Carr, northwest of Bancroft, hnd just come home from Ihe creamery when we saw hiin Friday. He gets the buttermilk there . for his hogs. He has a tank on a; trailer and backs'it up to the ho.? 1 trough, onens the nozzle, and the hogs get their milk. Bart has a dandy drovo of Hampshires, and : they show that Bert knows how to | feed. He also feeds a carload of Hereford cattle. Mr. and Mrs. Canare both jolly folks. Mrs. Axel Paulson, from near Swea Citv, WPS visiting there, and she said she always enjoys a stay with the Carrs, for she likes to see Mrs. Can- laugh. The Carrs own their 160- acre farm, which they bought in !!)!!). If they bought at the high prices then prevailing it must have taken a lot of hard work, sacrifice, and good management to pay out. * * * * At Walter L. Smith's, northwest of Bancroft, there was company Friday, a brother of Mr. Smith who is moving from Minnesota to Ames having stopped over night. Walter has one of these smart little dogs that are allowed in the house, and the brother had some suitcases filled with clothing. The dog barked and made such a fuss about the suitcases that Walter asked what was in them, and the latter said, "Just clothing." But to satisfy the dog they opened a suitcase and out jumped a mouse. They call the dog Buster, and he caught the mouse. * * * * Merlin Anderson, five miles northwest of Bancroft, had a big smile on his face when we called Friday. The reason was a new 8- Ib. girl, born December 7. She had not yet been named. It will be hard to find a name nice enough for this baby. There is also a boy in the family, 1% years old, and his name is Roger Lee. * * * * J. L. .Miller, northwest of Bancroft, was not at home Friday, but his son Orville, wife, and baby of two months were there. Orville and his family had been living at Beatrice, Neb., but they drove up the Sunday after Thanksgiving day. They reported crops very poor in that section, and the big crops here look_mighty good to them, though they think it is too cold in this part 'of the country. chickem White Leghorns. * * * S.

It is him to stay away from wood tov fuel, for he was raised in the wotds south of Algona.

He has a tine herd :ein cows and is Milking Hols three ti: At thi> new Plum Creek school- asked us to come to the o/ster supper Friday night. They had a fine supper. Looking around we saw some of the oldtimers, Hire Jim McEnroe and "Henry Schlck, who were sitting at tne same table. Later Lynn Keith came in. It made us think of the time we cast our first vote for president in the old schoolhouse. It is pretty nard to boat good old Plum Creek, and now they have the finest central schoolhouse in the county. aAUKSHOOKS, ORDER BOOKS « similar Items can be ordered ai the Advance office, Small Loam Up to $300 UW AUTOMOBILES LITE STOCK mltSOIIOLP FURNITURE, ETC* prompt, courteous, confident!*! service.

They were cracking them down pretty fast. * * * * We were at Alfred Jergenson's, northeast of Algona, Dec. 2nd. He was hauling corn fodder, but took a little time out for an oldtime visit. He said he was keeping bachelor quarters. He kidded us about our farm news, but said he always reads it, meanwhile won- edring how we got along with the women. We called at E. O. Mann's, east of Burt, Dec. 2nd. These folks arc some of the oldtimers, but they do not seem to age. We remember when it was pretty wet and swampy at times to get to the farm. Now they have good roads and some of the best land in the county, and their cribs are full of fine corn. * * * * Harry McChane, northeast of Burt, was hauling alfalfa hay and putting it into the barn Dec. 2nd. This is the old Gibbs farm. He said he had been to see the Gibbs family, who now live in Arkansas, where they are farming. They had cleared off 100 acres and planted it to rice, and had harvested 10,000 bushels on the 100 acres. * * * * David Weber, northeast of Burt, was doing his chores when we arrived Dec. 2nd.
