To Sonny, Swift's is a household name, for his father takes butterfut and eggs to Swift & Company regularly, at least several times each week. Swift & Company produce plants buy eggs, poultry and cream of good quality, for cash, every work day in the year. These foods are marketed as Swift's Brookfield Butter and Eggs, and Swift's Premium Milk-fed Chickens and Golden West Milk-fed Fowl. The same Swift & Company salesmen, who sell beef, pork, lamb and other meats, also sell butter, eggs, poultry and cheese. Instead of a dozen trucks being used for the delivery of a dozen products to a store, the same truck is used to deliver all products to a store. This marketing plan lowers distribution costs. Over a period of years, Swift & Company's net profits from all sources have been only a fraction of a cent per pound. We buy butterfat, eggs and poultry.

Allen) Clarence Mawdsley, living jnst north of Irvlngton having electricity for use on the farm, disposed of his windmill. The men were at work taking it down one day last week when I mad: a call at this home. Fred S. Geifee], jnst northeast of Irvington, one of the busy farmers of that vicinity, was busy getting ready- to thresh the other day when I called. Nevertheless he had time to visit a few minutes. Fred used to live near Lu Verne. —o—. Paul Hudson operates the barber shop and billiard parlor in the town of Irvington and is serving his patrons with first class service. —o— A, D. Headley is the manager of the Farmers Elevator and lumber yard at Irvington. A. D. is always on hand »o take care of the trade in first class shape. A correction for am !t«-m of last week—we should have stated that Mr. Lallier lives northeast of LuVcrne instead of Livermore. (By L. B. Smith) Geor/re Jutting was helping Lambert Hlppen thresh when I stopped at the latter's place last week. George was grain elevator boss, or perhaps I should say "trying his durndest" to be as they were using a blower type elevator run by a model T Ford engine, tha p ;. is, whon the engine would run. You know how these model T's are. always balking when you're in a hurry. —o— John Jutting, who lives in the neighborhood southwest of Buffalo Center was doing chores the other evening when I stopped there. Mr. Jutting is farming 160 acres of fine farm land this year and his crops look fine. There is a large up-to- date tile hog house on this place and should there be a shortage of hogs one of these years John would sure have the equipment to go ahead. —o— Henry Melndcrb and family were milking the other evening when I was there. Lucky for me they were almost through or I might have found a job helping. Henry has a mighty nloo herd of high grade cattle and during our conversation he asked me if I knew of any one who wanted to buy a high grade Hereford bull calf that is about 6 months old. I looked at the calf and if I am any Judge of cattle at all somebody is going to get a topnotch herd leader reasonable as Henry only wants $25.00 for this calf. Mr. Melnders lives 2 % miles east and 5 miles north of Titonka or from Buffalo Center he would be 2 miles west and 5 miles south. Lamfcert Hlppen, who lives n mile south and about two miles west, of Buffalo Center was thrashing at his place the other day wihpn I stopped to see him nnd some ol hfs neighbors. Mr Hippen was (hire man on that run tc thresh this year The other two placer threshrd before, according to the separator mnn, averaged txrtwet-n twenty nnd twenty-five bushels to the acre but he sold Lambert's oats were running quit-? a bit better and would no doubt make over thirty. There is quite a bit of grass in the bundles this year but due to the dry weather most, of the shocks dried out good and the feeding value of the straw piles ought to make up for some of the thin stand. Guy Barton, who lives two miles west and five miles south of Buffalo Center was entertaining company the other afternoon when I stopped there. Mr. Barton's uncle and aunt. Mr. and Mrs. Will Parriott of Kimball. South Dakota, were there for a short visit. Mr. Parriott said that everything was pr:tty well dried up in his part of the state and that us folks back here don't know how lucky we are in having such good crops. He also remarked that things began to look fairly good this side of Mitchell, South Dakota, and the farther they came this way the better the crops looked. Walt Faulstlch and family who live west of Titonka were Just coming in from the field for dinner the other day when I stopped, there. Walt had been to Titonka with cream that forenoon and Mrs. Pnulstich and ono of the boys were mowing. I enjoyed a fine dinner with the family and after a short visit was on my way. —o—The average weight of the oats by measure this year, according to several reports I have heard over the county Is right at 34 pounds to the busliel and most of the threshers are getting them fairly clean considering the amount of pigeon grass that Is in the bundles. —o— A. II. Lohsc who lives about five miles west of Titonka, was having trouble with his binder the other day when I stopped there. We had quite a time finding the trouble, but finally lM:atcd It and Mr. Lohse took the binder home to make repairs. —o— L. B. Larson, who Is one of Titonka's very prominent business men, Is do- Ing things In a big way this summer. Louie has remodeled the old theatre building into a cream, poultry, egg and feed station. Mr. Larson also sells chicks for the Cotton Hatchery in season and has a fine line of One Minute washing machines for sale. He also has a Maytag -washer for sale. You will see his ad in our classified ads section this week. Don't know but it seems to me if he sells this machine which Is In good condition, by Hilda and Arlene Phillips drove to Mason City Sunday where Hilda and Arkno took the bus for OwatonnB, Minn.
