A. Bonn- 6tetter, who has just sent a notice to this effect to interested fruit growers. Thft cluster bud spray is Important and should be applied thoroughly to secure good results. Apples, black raspberries, gooseberries and currants all can receive this spray at the same time. Plums and pears must be sprayed earlier because they bloom sooner than the others. H. E. Nichols, extension horticulturist, and the plant pathology department of Iowa State College, says that the fungus that causes apple scab is maturing earlier this spring ttian normally. A heavy rain will cause scab infection to start. Consequently it might be safer to apply this spray right after a heavy rain even though the trees are not ready to bloom. If no rain falls, spray can wait until just before blooming. Congregational Church Church School at 10 o'clock. Morn- Ing worship with children's talk at 11 o'clock.

State S. of Court House. EARLY CORN-HOG PAYMENTS HERE TOTAL $29,229 68 Kossuth Farmers in Line to Get Early Benefit Checks totaling $12,851.05 will soon be received from Washington by Kossuth county farmers who signed 68 "early payment" contracts, G. A. Bonnstetter, local representative of the United States Department of Agriculture, announced. "Transmittal" sheets for "early payment" contracts in this county have been forwarded to the AAA by the state board of review. Contracts were expressed to Washington by the County Allotment Committee last week. Early payment contract signers are in line to receive benefit payments as soon as the county transmlttal sheets are sent In to the state board for forwarding to the county corn-hog section of the AAA and the contracts are sent to Washington, Bonnstetter explains. County quotas for the regular payments contracts are now being determined by the state board. All of the county figures had to be in and checked before the work was begun. The board Is finding the last listing sheets Containing corn and hog production figures in better shape than earlier ones, according to Mr. Carl. Sealed Corn Must Not Be Tampered With, Murray Says Des Moines, May 7.—Bay Murray, Secretary of Agriculture, announced today that he had received reports of a few cases where corn loan borrowers were feeding out of cribs that were under state seal. In practically every case the borrower had more corn in Jic crib than pledged in the warehouse certificates and because of lack of nformation or mis-information thought he had a right to feed the unpledged corn whether it was in the sealed crib or not. In a few cases, however, they were out of feed and money and opened the crib with the Intention of laying the corn loan when the corn- log money arrived. These acts are serious violations of the law. The borrower in signing the warehouse certlfcate pledged that he would not remove any of the grain or break the seal on the crib except upon written authorization of the holder of the certificate. In signing the corn loan agreement the borrower gave the Commodity credit Corporation, which Is the lending agency, power to call the loan upon any such violation. If the loan is called for such violation the borrower will be held for the full amount of the note, interest, insurance, and collection costs. In order that corn loan borrowers may fully understand the law and their responsibility we quote Section 9800 of the Code: "9800—Unlawful Breaking of Seals. Any person unlawfully removing, Breaking or in any manner interfering or tampering with any seal, lock or other fastening placed upon any granary, crib, bin or other receptacle for grain under the provisions of this chapter, except when such removal shall be rendered imperative to prevent the damage, loss or destruction of grain stored therein, shall be guilty of u misdemeanor, and shall be punished by a fine of not less than one hundred dol- ars, or by Imprisonment in the county jail for not more than six months, or by both such fine and imprisonment." KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Field ReprpsrntAtivcs Twenty Years Ago News (Taken from the flies of the Algnna Upper rX's Molnes-Bepubllcan lor the week of May 6, 1914) Mrs. a. 113. French and daughter, Cidney, had been Mason City visitors the previous few days. A new cement block garage had be«i built on the T. P. Harrington premifiei on North Thorington street. Attorney L. J. Dickinson was to deliver the commencement addreis for the Titonka high school May 22. May 16th was the day set for the public and formal opening of the new Algorm creamery. No pains were to be spared to make this ti notable event i" Algona. Abstractor C. A. Momy«r had returned from u visit with his family at Albia the previous week. He had been ill with an attack of quinsy while visiting there. Mrs. George Spongberg and sister, Miss Dorothea Panum, were expecting to leave the next wetk for Denmark to make an extended visit with relatives and friends. E. J. MoEvoy, then of the Kossuth County Stat-e Bank, had been at Emmetsburg a few days the previous week attending the funoral of his uncle, John Conway. Photographer A. L. Peterson had attended the annual meeting of the Photographers' Association of Iowa, and had | been elected vice president. This meeting was the 25th anniversary 0 : the founding of the association. Taken from News and Comment: "AlKOiia is the best town of i'.s size in Iowa. Over sixty houses erected last year and not a house that can be rented. About the same number ol good modern homes axe to be erected this summer." The city officers were makii:.g an effort to enforce the ordinance an street traffic, regarding fast driving, heading cars and vehicles the wrong way and allowing cars to stand on Jie business blocks of State street for a period of more than 20 minutes. An active campaign was being made by the State Board of Health at teat time in an. endeavor to clean up yards, alleys, etc. A little verse la prominence at this time was: Little b'-ds of flowers, lltle cans of paltu,, make tmrnet, attractive out of them that ain't. (By Louis B. Smith* Af'ci waiting n f"w >lny* for thr win,! t. gu:f blowing. Dontjr. located about one quarter mile south of Gcrled. was hitching up last wo"k to disc. Herman remarked that tliprr was no use in waiting any longer for tho wind to quit blowing. — o — Hiram Borckholdt owns 40 acres and rents the same amount of land from his brother. HP has about 1.500 white rock chicks tills spring. Jim Shlpler, who lives about thre« miles west of Titonka, was milking th<i other evening when I got there. Jim just moved to his present location this spring. Mrs. Shipler is a daughter of George Larson. I offered to help him at his chores, but he didn't have an extra pail. — o — Mrs. Charley Stro*b*l, wife of one of the well known Stroebel Bros., who are farming 440 acres about three and one-half miles west of Titonka, likes to do a little field work herself, as she says it gives her an appetite. I found her disking as the hired man was was gone that day. Lawrence Pin*eJ, on the east of Ledyard, is putting in 15 acres of sugar beets. He has a place of 160 acres, of which about 150 are rented. In making: the round* in the vicinity of Bancroft, I stopped in to visit with Ed Droessler, one mile east of Bancroft. He was working in his garden. Ed has almost everything in the line of fruit trees and bushes on his farm as well as a large garden. He also has a mighty fine herd of Hoi- steins. While I was going into the Looft place, one mile north of Gerled, I saw several packages by the mail box, and as it is about a half mile to the house, picked them up and took them along. Mrs. Mary Looft, who has taken the Upper Des Moines for a number of years, was just preparing to come to Algona, so I didn't stop long. I notice with some interest that the AAA says in explaining why it is not planning operations to control the dairy industry, that "Experience has shown that large-scale stabilization and price-fixing operations, when undertaken for temporary benefit without adequate control over production, pren- •rally result in increased production and end in a relapse of prices. After seeing some of the fine herds that I have in the past week, I should hate to think that a relapse in <ialry product prices of any kind would ever occur. We folks at Bart are getting acquainted to some degree with H. M. ScharfT, who came up here from Port Dodge and has taken over the Burt pool hall from H. A. WhHehill. He had an opening Saturday noon, and quite a number were on Irand to h"lp him start his business life in Burt.

H. carries more weight than he used to, but I know tlwy serve good meals in Whittemore I stopped In at the J. J. Ctnk place between St. Benedict and Sexton the other day. Joe wos busy tuneing up the corn planter getting ready for th<» big run. The four "river houses or the Farmers' Union Live Stock Commission, operating on tho markets at Omaha, South St. Joseph, Sioux City and Kansas City, handled 141,558 more animals 'n 1933 than in 1932, according to figures compiled by the Cooperative Division of the FCA. All four agencies participated in the increased volume of business. —o— Of the total of 573,723 agreements signed by farmers in the initial wheat adjustment sign-up campaign, North Dakota led with 101,712 agreements. Kansas ranked second with 93.852 and South Dakota, third with 49,234 agreements. Agreements which are now being signed under the reopened program will add to the total of 573,723 already received. —o— The price of hogs at Chicago has been higher every week since the processing tax went Into effect than it was the corresponding week a year previous, figures released by the AAA show. In addition, a successively larger processing taxx has been paid under the 1934 corn-hog adjustment program. Thus the increase in tho value of hogs to the farmer has been much larger than indicated by the price alone. Proceeds from the processing tax are used to make benefit payments to those farmers who cooperate in the hog adjustment program. J. F. Cunningham near St. Joe, was getting his tractor ready for the day's work the other morning. J. P. likes to have everything in working order when he gets Into the field. I stopped at the Mike. C. Schmidt home north of Bode the other day. Mike was busy in the field as the busy season is on. I didn't get to see Mike but Mrs. Schmidt gave me their subscription to the Algona Upper Oes Moines anyway. Two Livestock Dealers were Fined For Speculating Two livestock 'JiM.rr;. ,;. n.

King and BsT.vt woro indicted by a federal grand jury at Aberdeen November after tlwy had alkgedly conspired to defraud the government in the purciiase of pigs under the relief pig purchasing program, conducted by the Agricultural Adjustment Administration from August 26 to September 30. 1933. In the indictment. It was charged that Bennett and King entered into an agreement to fraudulently obtain from the Department of Agriculture the premium payments then being paid i^r pigs, through the sale of animals purchased by thtm from producers in South Dakota and that in order to accomplish this they shipped the pigs so acquired by them to marketing centers under the names of the farmers from whom the pigs were originally rmrchased. It was charged that this transaction prevented producers from receiving the full equivalent of the bonus which was paid by the government during the emergency buying operations. Similar fraud cases, in connection with the same program, arc pending in other federal courts. and a third In amateur typing; Mar- pnrrf, Strphcnson placed second in novice. shorthand and Violet Norman received .veorifl in amateur shorthand.

Officers of the M. & St. L. rai'road tiad been in Algonu a few days previous and a proposition had boen put up to them for better passenger service to connect with trains on the main line to the Twin Cities and also De.s Moines. As a result a train was to arrive in Algona from the east at 6:30 u. rn. and leave at 7:45 in the morning. The Algona ministers had played a joke on their respective congregations the Sunday before. At a secret meeting they hud agre-rd to change pulpits and the numes of the churche.s had been placed in a hat and each had drawn u name. Not even the wives of the ministers knew of their Intentions and there had been rnuc.'i wonderment among the people of the at fir.-t. New Postmaster at Ledyard Installed Ledyard: Mrs. J. A.

Jimmie Neville TU£ SHOE MAN "All right! It you're fresfi, and of good quality, we'll take you/' Swift & Company's produce plants buy fresh eggs every marketing day of the year, and cream and poultry, too. — And pay cash for them. Later they are shipped to some 35,000 consuming centers, hungry for Swift's Brookfield Eggs, Swift's Brookfield Butter, and Swift's Premium Milk-fed Chickens and Golden West Milk -fed Fowl. To reduce marketing costs, they are handled in the same refrigerator cars, and through the same branch houses and car routes, as Swift & Company's meats. — They are sold by the same salesmen, and delivered in the same trucks, to the same retail stores. All this reduces selling costs, not only for eggs, poultry and butter, but for meats. Producers benefit from all these economies. Over a period of years, Swift & Company's net profits have amounted to only a fraction of a cent per pound from all sources.
