No use arguing, the other fellow may be right .Everybody has a right to their own opinions. When I see a snake stick his head out of a hole I do not stop to quarrel with him.. ? feel that hole belongs to that snake. Have your heart wired so you can turn off hate and selfishness and still have light enough left to see the other fellow's side of a question, as well as your own. I tell the clerks when a customer says she does not like the shoe you are showing her just lay the shoe aside. Do not argue but keep on showing shoes until you find the line she wants After all, the customer is the one that is buying and going to wear the slippers. She does not care what the clerk thinks. She wants slippers to suit her. She is not trying to dress to suit the clerk. Customers sometimes , regard superfluous suggestions as an insult to their inteli- gence.

He had not yet heard what the cattle brought. * * * * J. B. Muehe, northwest of Wesley, was at the 'house last week Tuesday, when he stopped to see him. As a rule we find him busy, but the weather that day, right after that untimely blizzard, discouraged his customary activities. * * * * Martin Gabel, who formerly lived east of the Grant schoolhouse, is now located northwest of Swea City. When we saw him Wednesday he had seeded 35 acres of oats and had finished the disking and harrowing before the snowstorm Carl Rath, who lives a half mile west, had come over with a team and he said the road up his way had .had to be shoveled out even foi horses in places. At some points drifts were seven feet high.. This may seem like a tall story to some readers', but that was a real bliz zard. * } * » Harold Jones, west of Swea City and his hired man were fixing up a way to let the hogs get to th trough Wednesday. They were laying some old railroad ties an staking them into place. The ties make a good platform for hogs Harold raises Hampshires an takes good care of them. He alsc has a fine lot of spring lambs. Fo many years' Mr. and Mrs. Jone lived straight west of Burt. Mrs Jones is 'one of two daughters o Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Stoutenburg who still live west of Burt. * * * * Richard Berg, rural letter car rier of Swea City, has had som bad roads to travel of late, and ha had Walter Adams, who operates a portable mill out Of Swea City, help deliver some,'of the mail. It was too difficult to get to some farmers' homes with a truck, so Mr. Berg and Walter fixed up a light tractor for the route. Walter put a large box on the rear of the tractor, and now up the road the tractor goes when the going is bad. At that the tractor got stuck once on the main road north out of Swea City and had to be helped by a team before it could get going again. This was last Wednesday. The Thursday trip was made without difficulty. It seems like old times to hear about such conditions on Kossuth roads. This county now has so much pav.ing and graveled roads that it is only now and then that one hears of what used to be the common fate in wet weather. * * * * Last Wednesday we called at J. H. Mullarkey's in Swea City. Mr. and Mrs. Mullarkey formerly lived south of Lakota and had the farm that William Ley now owns. The buildings are all! painted -white. Mr. Mullarkey said he was batching it that day, as Mrs. Mullarkey as not at home. J. H. once work- 1 for the Hart-Parr tractor corn- any at Charles City, and he has wo brothers living there now. * * * * -Charles Fischer, who lives at the orthwest edge of Swea City, is an Idtimer who came to KosBUth in 894. At that time he farmed two miles east of where the town of 'itonka now stands. He recalled hat 11 years ago, or in 1928, pring was also late for seeding, tfo field work was done till after April 20, * * * » Andrew G. Berg, northwest of Swea City, and his boy were disk- ng on high ground Thursday, us- ng horses. Mr. Berg has lived on he same farm ten years. The place consists of 220 acres, and it is wel iled. An insurance company owns it and is planning to build a new loghouse this season Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Simpson Thompson likes to fish, and he has been putting odd time on a gadget to land the big ones when fishing from a boat. He has perfected and patented what is called a gaff lock, which is a neat tool that a lot of fishermen will want. * * « * We were at A. H. Bunkofske's, east of Burt, Thursday, and he was cleaning out his hoghouse. He has 74 spring piKs. During the snowstorm he had a heater in the hog- louse. Mr.. and, Mrs. Bunkofske ook a month's vacation this win- er and visited relatives in Cali- ornia and Oregon. In Oregon they 'isited the Rikes and the Charles 'iilks, who once lived in the Ti- onka neighborhood. That, however, was long ago, for the two amilies moved to the coast in 1903. Phey raise mostly small grain, but A. H. said they raise some corn, mostly for silos. When they pick ear corn they put it over a dryer, then crib it. While the Bunkof- skes were at Los Angeles they sought a house. They also visited ;he world's fair. * * * * Peter jDremmel, the veteran telephone man at Burt, was walking along the highway east of the river bridge east of Burt when we saw him Friday. He has his troubles, as well as other people do. Someone who had been fishing near the river bridge had thrown a fine wire fish line over the telephone wires, and this had caused a short circuit which made all kinds of rings on the neighborhood telephone sets. The fishline was hard to locate, for it was so 'fine that it was difficult to see it. « * * * Herman Gabel, who formerly lived on the McMahon farm, near the Grant schoolhouse, has moved to a place south oif 'Swea Cfty, and when we arrived Thursday he wafe turning some fine colts out of the 'barn. Herman, who raises good stock, showed us 13 spring lambs. This is his first year at raising sheep. * * * * .,.-.' • • • • William Haisman, three brothers, and a sister are new folks on a Swea City mail route. Their parents are dead, and the sister, who is young, goes to school in Swea City, also doing a good deal of the housekeeping, but the boys get their own dinners. We'll keep track of these 'three lads to see which gets his own housekeeper first. * * * » George Schueler, who has moved from the Swea City neighborhood to the Wernert Ifarm west of Algona, had his seeding 'about done last Thursday. His father, John Schueler, helped him. Mrs. Schueler, who fell some six weeks' ago in front of the Swea City postolffice and suffered a broken ankle, still has to walk with crutches, but she is doing her housework again. * * * * The Frank Benteles, a mile north of Swea City, are a new family there. They formerly lived near Lu Verne, and More that in the Sexton neighborhood. They bought the farm where they now live. piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiin |E D.
