Lon Whltehlll of Hurt had visited n Algona Monday. He had been on his way home from Hettlnger, North Dakota, where he had visited relatives nd he had reported that everything had been flourishing In that country. A new auto hearse was to be bought soon by Undertaker W. B. Laird. It was to have a Bulck chassis and was beine designed after a desian furnished by Mr. Laird. The car was geared to run from one and one-half to wenty miles an hour and was to cost about $3,000. ' The previous Sunday had been a warm and sunshiny day, and It had been reported that, everyone was out enjoying themselves in their car. A lab? fall had been predicted for the year 1914. The weather twenty years ago seemed to be pretty much like the present year weather. A game reserve had been established In Koasuth county Vy JlYate Game Warden Hinshaw through the efforts of Deputy Game Warden Lang and several other interested citizens. The reserve took In about 3500 acres and started at the Call bridge with the line running west to the southwest corner of Judge Quarton's farm, south two miles and east to the Des Moines river at the Parsons place, the river being the northern boundary. The land wa; leased for a period of five years and the reserve was being stocked with game birds. (By Ixrals B.

He has a fine herd of cattle, amon^ which are 20 h-ad of full blcoded Hereford heifers which were shipped here from Sheffield, Montana. Reuben Kflntson was plowing on his 260-acre farm southeast of Armstrong the other afternoon when Mr. Walkr and myself were there. We had a short visit with Mr. Knutson but hese tractors use fuel when running o we did not detain him long. When riving out to the fleld where Reuben was plowing we noticed he had a coup- of fields of fine looking corn. Adolph Anderson, who farms a 160- cre farm and Is a neighbor of Mr. Cnutson, was also plowing in the ad- olnlng field, and although using horses as making good headway with his all plowing. Mr. Andereon moved here rom Emmet county last, spring and as two boys, ages 9 and 4, who will oon be a big help to him. While In the neighborhood southeast jf Armstrong, Mr. Walkr and I stopped at the Ole Ravn farm. Mr. Ravn was ut in Hhe fleld plowing so we did not see him, but we had a short visit with Mrs. Ravn and daughters with he result that they are now members of the large family of readers of The Algona Upper Des Moines. Wayne Richmond was over at his father's, Walter Richmond's farm when we called at his place the other day. so, not, being in a big rush w« drove over to the place to see him and meet his father.

Simon Weber, Jr., and Nick Seamon also live in the Whlttemore territory. Mrs. Clara Mueller was busy canning tbs other day when I called, but took a few minutes to visit. Mrs. Mueller says she could not get along without the Upper Des MoiiKS. Earl Elbert, just north and east of Whlttemore lust arrived home when I called at their place and of course as all busy farmers had work to be done, we didn't visit long. Carl Ebert. southeast of Whlttemore. was about the place when I arrived, and Just at that time had a little time to visit.

These colts arc here for no other reason than that drouth conditions necessitate their sale. They were bred and raised on our farm and are sired by two of the best Belgian and Percheron stallions that we could buy. These colts are out of some of our very best mares. We came to Dakota some years ago and at that tune brought with us some of the best mares we could get in Illinois. We regret very much to have to sell these colts at this time. But our loss is your gain! If you are interested in well bred Percheron and Belgian colts, make every effort to be at the Milwaukee Stocky. (Is on Fri.Oct.19 Algona 1 P.

He had b«n picking corn for the hogs and had picked ou a few ears of seed corn which were the best I have seen in this year's crop so far. Mr. Beck remarked that he didn't think there was any hum about corn picking for a week or two yet as the corn is pretty wet. —o— R. M. Larsen and his neighbor, August Beck, were not home in the afternoon when I stopped there as they had gone to Algona on business that d*V> BO'T stopped by later tti tW> evening at. both places with the result that they are both now reading "Iowa's Best Weekly," —o— Harvey Knutson who also lives south- onst of Armstrong is another of the 3CO-ncp? farmers of tills community. Harvey was discing his corn stubble grcund In th? preparation of plowlns but stopped to visit with us a few minutes. Mr. Knutson has lived on his present farm for 25 years and has had tlv> same man working for him the past 21 yenrs. This is n fine record which fhows that he must be a good man and you may be sure that Mr. Knutscn is a fair and reasonable boss. E. A. Wortman, who farms south of Lakota, w«s not feeling so well the evening I stopp:d there as he had been bothered with a headache all day but even at that I found Mr. Wortman to be In good humor. No doubt due to the fact that John Bergman is working for him this fall and therefore ne<d not worry about the farm work. —o— . C. Freeark, who also lives south of L'\kota, was dlKging h\s potatoes the iveniiiR I was there. Don't know how many acres Clifford had plant-cd, but the potatoes were of good size and the boys were grading and sacking hem at the fleld. While In the neighborhood southeast of Armstrong I stopped at the F. E [Teat place and as I could not locate anyone around the place I drove ou' ,o the fteld wher; Mr. Treat was doing a fine job of plowing, and of course held him from his work a few moments, but I am sure Mr. Treat will agree that the time was well jjxnt when he slops to consider that he will receive the regular visit of the B st Weekly in the state and the punkest fleld man in the states. —o— John Blum who farms his father's place southeast of Armstrong, was stacking his corn fodder the other afternoon when I stopped thH-e and as his father, who lives in Armstrong Is an old subscriber tf ours, John thought, he might as well be too. John's father, Bert Blum, was at his other farm shingling and repairing some of the buildings. _o— Henry Sweoringcn who lives southeast of Armstrong, was a little on edg; the other evening when I stopped there as there has been so many agents pestering lately, but after explaining my mission, Mr. Swearingen said. "Oh well that's different." and 1 know that our many readers agree with him.
