The Municipal Christmas tree on the court house lawn had been decorated with lights, tinsel, pop corn and cranberries, etc. A large crowd had attended although the cold was intense.

He had broken the drive shaft of his car and he said it took most of the money hn had been figuring on using for Christmas to get it fixed so drn't know a.s you can blame him for feeling that way. There'is n line tile block hog howse on this place with room for fifteen large pens, and I noticed Klaus had one of the pens full of calves, several pens full of hogs and all pens full of chickens. Nothing like making u.?e of a good building this cold weather. —o— Fred Vohonn who farms northeast of Bancroft was fencing off a yard ro stack his corn fodder in the other nf- ternoon and said that although a little out of season he had been getting along fine as there is very little frost in the ground.

II. ntcklefs of Tilonha is a busy man these days which is proof that even though he did not get the sheriff's office this fall he intends to live for a couple of years anyway, and he says you will see him back in th? race again.

C. Flatten family who live northwest of Bancroft, are enjoying their new house this winter and I find that Mother Hatten can make just as gocd apple pies in the new house as she did in the old one. —o— Most of the fanners and others over the county have their winter supply of meat stored away by this time but a man in Lakota was saved the trouble of cutting up the hog he had butchered the night before and left In a locked gamge to cool. &"me time during the night someone broke the lock and walked off with the meat. Although the thief was not caught he is under suspicion nnd will no doubt make a slip before long. TITONKANEWS Wrn.
