Only farmers Mho make application through the drought director's office are eligible to sell fodder through the government. In order to sell fodder through the government, the com must be cut early before the frost and before the leaves dry up and blow away. The fodder must be shock cured before husking, some fanners will husk by hand while others will run the fodder through a shredder or an ordinary threshing machine which has been changed to meet fodder threshing requirements. A limited number of contracts for selling fodder will be available in the county as the county has a definite selling quota. "First come will be first served." If the county quota is not used up it may be shifted to another county. Provisions should be made immediately for cutting and shocking the corn in order that the fodder or stov- er will meet the government grades. Applications will not be taken for less than ten tons as this constitutes a minimum carload. Game Warden Asks Donations of Feed E. V.

He will see that sacks are furnished and th« material thus donated collected and properly stored. A letter to him at Algona will bring Immediate action. If the feed is not needed in this territory this winter, Mr. Pierce stated, it will be used in other sections of the state where drouth has reduced all possible feed for game birds.

Save expense and grief by having your heating plant checked now. Holtzbauer's Tin Shop Plumbing, Heating, Sheet Metal 117 S. Dodge. Phone 83 Holstein-Friesian Association Releases Report; 256 Herds in Test The Holsteln-Friesian Association of America, Madison, Wisconsin, reports iiat the registered Holstein herd owned by A. A. Dreyer at Whittemore, has completed 160 days of its annual production test and has maintained the exceptionally high dally average of 1.5 pounds fat per cow. Five csws In thj lerd have already exceeded the 200 round fat mark, with two of them gong over 300 pounds. The group is being led by the cow named Hengerveld Ponttac Skylark with a credit of 3605 pounds fat and 10,497 pounds milk. During the last monthly test, five cows n the herd exceeded 40 pounds of fat with high honors going to Henger- veld Sadie Skylark with a yield of 64.2 xmnd fat and 1686 pounds milk. The nnswer to the problem of breed improvemjent Is the greajter use of proved sires and their off-spring and ilso, which Is just as Important, the 0catlng and greater upe of proved dams or brood cows. In order to prove a sire, all of his unselected daugh- «rs must be tested for production and heir records compared with those of their mothers. This means that the entire herd must be tested year after year. A good start was mode by the Holstein Association when it adopted the Herd Improvement Registry test over six years ago. At oresent there are 265 Holstein herds in the Herd Test including over 8,000 cov;3 which is a good start, but the number should be greatly increased. KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Ixrals Smith and Edward Allen. FleH Representatives (By E. O. Allen) While driving along a few days ago I happened past the James Black place 'outhrast of Algona, I noticed a new kind of a silo they were filling. The> were using bundles of corn fodder for the outside with tha butts in off course. They were filling the center with sll- age, building up as they went. This idea might be worth trying by others. Aman, the elevator manager Chas. Beulah Gladstone In Motor Crash Lone Bock: Beulah Gladstone, a daughter of Rev. and Mrs. S. M. Gladstone escaped serious injuries Saturday morning when her car, a Chevrolet coupe, rollick d with a traveling man's car of Des Moines at the four corners south of Fenton.

Low Building Costs Urge You to Build/ Remodel and Repair NOW! m Sf:*- at Sexton was hustling around the other day when I stopped in, loading a car of corn. More exercise for the elevator men since the corn began moving. • • • The other day when I called at the Amos Angle place, Amos had just finished cutting beans, and was putting the binder in the shed. He says it is quite a job, but sure makes fine feed and lots of it. The Angks are located north of Wesley and have a very nice place. I stopped In at the Dan Green home north of Wesley the other day, to see how Dan was getting along. He seemed to be O. K. and we had a visit on 1h« times, etc. When I left Dan gave me a nice watermelon and I sure do like watermelon. At the place where Leander Secfeld lives In the Wesley vicinity they had a crew of men doing repair work on the barn which will be quite an Improvement. Ted Tntimelle, who lives just south - sast of St. Benedict, was working on his tractor the other day when I called. Evidently Ted believes in having his machine in tip-top shape to start the season's plowing. Geo. J. Schntjer, was Jt»t ready to thresh flax the other day when I called. Geo. lives north of Wesley, and of course is a busy man these days doing up the numerous Jobs about the place. (By Louis Smith) Bruno Steelier, who lives a «hort way north of Tltonka was cleaning up his hog house the other morning when I stopped there. From the way Mr. Sleeker was cleaning up and building pens he must expect a bumper pig crop this fall. Otoon Bros., who also live In the same neighborhood, were butchering a hog and from the looks of things were getting along fairly good with the job and would be through by chore time. One of the boys remarked that as cool as the weather is getting he did not, sec the use of buying meat. Win Baoman, who Hvea In the neghborhood southwest of Lakota was fixing and repairing his hog lot fence the other afternoon when I stopped there [and as it was a rather miserable afternoon we spent a Ishort time of it visiting. Wh*n going back toward the house I could not help but. notice Mrs Bauman's flower garden which was In in full bloom with nil shapes, colors and kinds of flowers imairinabl..-. Upon starting lor home Nils. Bauman gave me a bouquet ol straw flowers which when dried will make a pretty bouquet that will last all winter. While driving Utirough the country between Armstrong and Swea City I stopped to see Walter C. Peterson, who lives about half way between these two towns. Mr. Peterson was nol feeling very well as he has been l up with an attack of rheumatism anc has been unable to do a thing th° last few days. Walter said it was mighty painful at times but that he would be out and around again in a few days. Martin Brandt, who lives southwest of German Valley was cutting corn from contracted apres the othtr afternoon and talk about tall corn—Martin sure had It on this piece as there wasn't a stalk in sight that was less than eight feet tall and a few of Ui were ekyent feet and better. Of course this corn had not matured as the ears were hardly at the roasting ear stage fcfct, but according to the contract had to be cut at once before It could be considered as a grain crop. —o— James Nelson of southwest of Lakota was another who was cutting corn from contracted acres the other day Mr. Nelson remarked that it was altogether to wet to try to cut that his orders were to cut it, so guessed he would do what he could. Ellis Join who lives southwest of Tltonka in the Doan neighborhood, is planning on building a barn this fall which the live stock as well as Mr. Jain will enjoy very much. Louis Blaine who owns a saw mill and has done quite a lot of sawing around tills neighborhood is f awing out the dimension lumber for the barn from cottonwood logs that were cut last winter. —o— Raymond Winter, who farms In the neighborhood southwest of Lakota was out in the corn field snapping a load of corn for the hogs when I stopped there the other afternoon so did rot see him, and will have to stop again some time when I catch him closer home. Mr. Winter has a fine look- Ing farm which shows good cure and management.

Casey at Bat is Under Suspicion LuVerne We went into tlu court, liouje at Algona last &uurduy morning and saw Caiey Loss, deputy sherifl, standing all alune by the east door and talking Uo himself. Hie'd mumble and mutter and UKII he would say, "What ajn I bid. What am I bid." NJ one w;u> wiiliin twenty feet of him and no one was paying any attention. Poor Casey, we thought, has it really come to tills. We. rushed ui> sttiij-s to find if lh« insanity comaiiisiioii was in teision and il Casey was the goat. We like Casey and had always thought him a. mighty smart young man, but the evidence was against him. Then we met Si erili Dulilhaus*.r and asked hun how long Casey had been that way. Then we found out that he vnu- conducting a sheritt's sale, and before - i->gular yizod crowd which, such sales. But we still have our suspicions. 48 BABY BEEVES FOR 4-H CLUB MEMBERS COMING Iowa State Bank Financing Plan Again; Last Crop Sold at Fair The 48 baby beef calves for the 1935 4-H program were expected to arrive at Algorrn on Wednesday of this week. These calves have been purchased from gcod purebred herds in southern Iowa. Marlon Soults, club agent, accompanied by George Haw- colt and M. L. Johnson of Armstrong made the trip and inspected the calves purchased. The Iowa State Bank, Algona, Iowa, is financing the 4-H calves for the coming year which has been customary with this banking house for several years. This makes it possible for many farm boys to take advantage of club work that would be Impossible where parents are not of financial circumstances to do this for their children. The calves will be drawn for the latter part of the week by those who will make up the 4-H baby beef club for 1935. The Iowa State Bank clerked the sale the last day of the fair and shows that the 45 calves sold brought $3,316.32 or $75.37 per calf. The average weight of the calves when delivered to boys and girls in the fall of 1933 was 339 pounds each. This shows a gnln of 580 pounds per calf to meet I'eed costs and the time of the 4-H boys and girls who were active in the baby beef club of 1934. Those who have not been active in 4-H work and want an opportunity to obtain a calf for the season of 1935 may obtain information at the Kossuth County Agricultural Extension office, Court House, Algona, Iowa, or Marion Soults, club agent, Algona, Iowa.
