Val Fuhrnuin, a former well known St. Joe man, who moved to Canada over twenty years ago, settling at Nethershill, Saskatchewan, in sending his subscription to the Upper Den Moines, says: "We are all in the fields here. I got 100 acres of wheat seeded already. I have been in Canada 21 years this spring and this is the earliest spring we have had, and it is also the dryest spring I have seen here in all the years."

Coach Bonham was formerly coach at Algona high •cfaool during MUM of the time Mr. Overmyer was superintendent of TheMan About Town Say* Aubrey Bonham, former Algona high coach, now athletic director at Whittler College, brought his relay team to the Drake Relays and copped first place in one race. While other coaches have had ball teams better and worse than Bonham's, none before or after has supplanted his ability with students in the gymnasium. And the Jest of it, the new school board at that time couldn't see fit to rehire him; not good enough for Algona, but was grabbed up immediately by a larger school. • * * On the green slope between the Andy Godfredson home and the hog house several rods to the west grazes brood sows with their Utters of pigs. An artist would wonder at the sight. A panorama of verdant background; pure black sows each followed by Illy white suckling pigs. • * * Ben Sorensen has a faithful spaniel dog. Faithful to his daughter at least. One of the few fine days this spring, fit to have a window open, the dog nosed around the various windows at the school house. Found the right one and leaped into the room where mistress Sorensen was learning the three R's. • * • Numerous folks are receiving letters from a club in Florida intent on finding a life mate for the lonely. A guarantee is offered for a three dollar membership. The letters include snapshots of prospects. Some are quite handsome as the boys at the Dau garage are willing to show you. • • • Don't know who Is responsible, the board of supervisors or the to cal newspapers, but one of the fin est things has been done to one* of the worst paper iniquities. That is the exclusion of the name of the party receiving poor aid from the board proceedings when published. In the olden days people were placed on the streets with their hands and feet locked in boards so the kids could throw brickbats and rocks at them. The modern way, just revised so let us hope, is to put the name of the person and the unfortunate family In the pa per so the gossipers had news of the week, and they made use of it, too. • * * There Is a critter at the Simon Henry farm contented with his home. Oftentimes the neighbors borrow him. They must take him by force but never have to worry about the return. A half a day at any one of the neighbors Is enough for him. Over the fence and back. It never falls. • • • Swapping horses on the road was a common thing in the horse and buggy day*. The parallel trade of a few months ago was enacted by Glen Buchanan. Glen saw a red shirt worn by a friend and wanted It. A few bickering words and off came shirts. Another deal was over and two shirts found new wearers. • * * In the Des Moines Register reasons why some legislators voted on a bill were given. One said he voted as he did because, "he didn't want to stay there all summer." That's how a great many laws are made. It matters not whether the law would be helpful or wrong. It does matter whether or not a lawmaker has work to do on his farm. And we abide by his decision so he can get the manure out on the field. • * * A west of town farm boy earns spending money by trapping pocket gophers. A misfortune occurred at one of the sets. The gopher got away after leaving one claw. The boy was wide awake and cut off a hind foot of one already declawed in front and paired it with the single front one. It passed the auditor's office Inspection and full bounty was paid. Now what will he do when he captures the one that got away with only one claw when two are necessary for the reward. 40 SWEA CITY SPORTSMEN FORM UNIT OF CONSERVATION LEAGUE Cresco 4-H Club Met Saturday At The Matern Home Irvingtom The Cresco 4-H club was entertained last Saturday by Miss Patricia Matern, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Matern.
