Not telling you this to make you think I ar.\ nn expert in this line but my father always kept over n hundred swarm;' every year so I've been "stung" more than once. Mr. Kockler is plowing his contracted acres and may sow it to rye this fall. —o— Roy Hartshorn, who lives about 4 miles south and one mile west of Swea City was hoeing his potatoes the other day and as he is of course a subscriber to our paper I stopped to get acquainted. Tne potatoes look fine and have a fine chance of filling Mr. Hartshorn's cellar as he has quite a large patch. The wind the night before had twisted up the corn pretty badly in this neighborhood as well as in other sections of the county. Mr. Hartshorn said that his silo came pretty near going down and that they would have to straighten it up again, and see if there would be a way of anchoring it more solid. John Geerdes, who lives southwest of Swea City, was plowing his drilled corn with a beet plow the other day when I stopped there.

Anderson, who farms a farm owned by the Metropolitan Insurance Company, is getting quite a fo".v improvements on the place this summer. Two men w re palvting the house the day I was there and I noticed new shingled roofs on several of tlv? buildings. It must be that these insurance companies see E.OCC'. times ahead or they would not go to the expense of fixing up the'e farms the way they are doing. —o— Mlnert Tannkuk who farms his fathers place east of German Valley, had just finished fencing p. pasture for his young calves the other evening and was taking them from t.'ie barn by leading them.
