Francis Johnson, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, was the principal speaker on the afternoon program. To date no grasshopper damage has been reported in Kossuth county. We have, however, some poison bran on hand which will be available in the event the grasshoppers do make an appearance. Frank Schoby tied for fourth place in the cream grading contest at the State Brand Creamery picnic at Mason City last Thursday. Frank reported that one good smell was all that was necessary to tell the grade of some samples. Dale Clark, the Kossuth No. 1 cow tester is preparing records of some of the herd sires in the association. Many good bulls have been sent to market because their breeding worth Was unknown. Proper records will furnish a statement as to their value and should prevent the loss of good sires by way of the block. The Conservation commission appeals to parents of boys who have been killing young birds to stop the practice. Both federal and state laws prohibit the killing of most song birds and the penalty is the same as in cases of game birds. Our birds are also the best help we have in controlling insect pests. The number of farmers usinx sodium chlorate for spraying weeds is on the increase this year. As the thistles are now coming into blossom it is time to get at the spraying before they go to seed. Charles Bertp frotn just east of St. Joe was a visitor in Algona last Thursday and judging by tiie beads of perspiration on his brow, the day was proving plenty hot. Charles says that St. Joe's baseball fever has died down considerable, and that the folks in his neighborhood enjoy coming up to Algona for some of the nice, cool night games. He also remarked that when the new buildings going up around the Upper Des Moines office are completed we're going to be right in the center of things more than ever. To which we replied yes, provided the new buildings don't cut off all of our light. We're always glad to have folks drop in at the Upper Des , Moines office and pass the time of I day. man. The building: will be 36x82 built of clay mocks with a Gothic roof. It will be all modern, with steel stanchions, electric ventilating system, wat* pressure and automatic drinking fountains. The cost will be approximately $7,000. Bernice Devine spent Wednesday night with her aunt, Mrs. R. H. Skilling. The Married Folks Dancing club held a dance at the Sexton hall last Wednesday evening. Mrs. Frank Capesius, Mrs. Pan! Clark and Mrs. S. J. Devine attended the creamery picnic at Mason City Thursday. Members of the Irvington Aid were guests of the Burt Ladies' Aid on Wednesday afternoon. Mrs. Orrie Miller is president of the local Aid. Miss Nellie Burlingame, her adopted daughter. Beulah. and nieces, Bernice and Eunice, have returned from their eastern trip. The group was gone about a month. Mrs. John Schulz and Mrs. Geo Johnson spent Thursday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Vern Drone, Algona. The ladies prepared the yearbook for the Plum Creek club. Mrs. Geo. Johnson has as her guests this week, her cousin, Mt-s. Fred Bradley, son Clark and Keith Clark of Fairmont, California. Mrs. Bradley was accompanied here by her mother, Mrs. C. E.
