O. Ewoidt, east of Lone Rock, Thursday, and he was doing some repair work on his house. As soon ad-that Job was finished he was going to paint the building, so maybe by this time there Is another handsome, shiny home in that neighborhood. Let the good work go on! • * • • Henry Hartwell, northeast of Lone Rock, living on the Blanchard-Hulbert farm, was cleaning out his barn Thursday. Mr. and Mrs. Hartwell have been tenants of this place 21 years, which shows both'that-they are A-No. 1 renters and .that they have appreciative landlords. They took a short vacation last winter and went down 1 in Louisiana, where Henry's brother Bert lives. Ber thas written lately that it has been dry there this spring, and Henry could reply, "Ditto here." • • * * Vern Gross, northeast of Lone Rock, was cleaning up In and around the barn Thursday. He keeps 13 fine horses and does all hie farming with them. He also sells a horse every now and then, for his horses are known for breeding and quality. There are also 18 flrte Hereford calves on the place, bought for feeding out. * * * * [Meld From Last Week.] Livermore, May IS—Mrs. August Paulson, who recenty returned from the winter in the South, opened her home for two .parties recently.

This Is an unusual plant In this locality, according to local florists. A peculiar property of the flowers ia that they give off perfume only after dark. The fragrance apparently comes from little drops of honey which ooze out of email filar-shap- ed flowers. "Wax Plant" is a common name for hoya carnosa, a climhlng greenhouse shrub native to parts of Asia. The hoyas are described ae tropical evergreens, mostly climbing'shrubs belonging to the milkweed''family. Hoya carnoea is the best-known species, a twiner, with rootlft* stems and a growth of eight Wet or more. The flowers grow In clusters of 25 or 30, with a texture like velvet, and are white with » pink center. The leaves are thick and fleshy, with a waxy surface.

One day last winter we had a fine visit with Doctors Fox and Winkel, the Algona. veterinarians, well known to many farmers. Doctor Fox started the practice at Burt in 1916. Those were the days of mud roads, and he had a Model T. There were trying trips both day and night. This writer, too, well remembers the same mud roads, also the late Doctor Bayers, who had a small office building where the Fox building is now located. Doctor Sayers was a big-hearted fellow, as most veterinarians are. Once in an oldtime automobile, he was taking frien'ds out for ah even- birthday party. His mother saw to that. The accident, caused by a fall from the teeter-totter, resulted in an injury to the bones of 'P. M. Christensen, west of Lone .one leg which has kept the boy in Rock, raises the fine Hereford bed l eve ^, si , nce Ing spin, and when he the came Mike cows, which makes them give more milk! You can believe that if you want to, but we'd rather think it's because he gives them some good old Deutsch care and feed. » * * * Extra! Extra! We claim for George Kelch, east of Wesley, the title of one of north Iowa's first farmers to cultivate corn this year. George takes pride in a clean corn field, and he sure makes his field an outstanding example. He farms with horses. George told us that he and his wife had been anxious about their baby, which had been critically sick, but was now doing well. Everyone feels sorry for a sick baby. • • * * We were at Burton Yale's, southeast of Titonka, Wednesday. Mr. and Mrs. Yale have a fine flower [rke accompanied him. Mission. pe returned the same day.

Mittag's northeast of Lotts Creek church, the family was having early dinner, when we called Friday, for they were going to Mrs. Manning's funeral, so we had only a short visit there. We noticed a fine team of horses in the yard. Mr. Mittag has refused $500 for that team. They are 'big horses.

A week ago Saturday we called at Jos. Miller's, northwest ]of Wesley. Electricians had ifinlshedi wiring all the buildings. This farm is in an R. E. A. project. Mr, Miller bought the place a fe^w years ago and has added improvements ery year. He is now planning to lay a new foundation under the chicken house, and he will also plaint the buildings. 'Nothing like well done repair and paint to make farm homes and other buildings look attractive. And they add to values too, something that too many farmers seem^not to realize. When we called at John J. Johnson's, northeast of Ledyard, last week Monday we found Mp. Johnson at work in the garden; and ene was hoping for rain. fine, large garden, lives With "Grandma." Mrs. Rode likes to gave a little garden every rear, and; we took notice that she already had a great many pretty lowers. » * * * At William Welhousen's, northwest of Titonka, we met Mr. Wel- iiousen's mother, Mrs. John Wel- housen, Wednesday, and she showed us a story that had appeared in the Advance about her. It pleased her, but the statement that she came from Holland was a bad error, for she was born in Fond du Lac county, Wls., ana is a real American citizen. Her parents, however, came from Holland, and that is one of the countries from which Amerca likes to get immigrants. Garret Welhousen, who has worked in the AAA office at, Algona, is a son of Mrs. Wel- housen.. William owns 400 acres of land, and he farms 240 acres.
