North Kossuth Record:' Some 30 years ago there lived on two farms In German Valley neighborhood two big famlles the Rlppentfop family which included nine children and the Isebrandt family in which there were six children. Then the father of the Isebrandt family and the mother hi the Rippentrop family, both died within a few months Five years later the-two families merged with the marriage of Mrs. Isebrandt and John K. Rippentrop. There were then fifteen children sitting ajb the family dinner table, and the new Mrs, Rippentrop also In .addition fed from one to nine tilers most every summer for a long time. Think of It, 28 people to be fed three meals a day, while today some newly weds cannot afford to have any babies. Sunday Mif, and Mys. Rippentrop celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary In then- Home at Titonka, where they now live retired. The couple now own eight or nine farms most of which are rented to their own children and ' to addition five or six of their children have farms of their own. Mr. Rippentrop came to America wheu fourteen years old. That was sixty-three years ago. His home was at Suurhusen, a village near Emden, Otsfriesland, Germany. He came to Kossuth county in . 1883. His first marriage,:was fifty-four years ago. His seventy-seventh birthday was August 27th. Former Faster Congratulates. Mr. and Mrs. Rippentrop received a card of greetings and best wishes from their old pastor the Rev. W. T. Jansen, congratulating him on his seventy-seventh birthday and on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary Which is August 31. Mr. Rippentrop said that the Rev. Jansen left his German Valley church in October, 1905. He had been their pastor through all their troubles, had sat with them in times of sickness and death of their first mates and had helped to teach and guide their children so they wanted him to be the one to marry them. And so they advanced the date of -the wedding they, were contemplating to Aug- ust 31 so that Rev. Jansen Could be the one to solemhtte It befofe he left the German Valley pattsh. Now every year tot twehtyiflve years they get a card frem Rev. Jfansen wishing them many happy returns of the day. This year's card, written in German, had written at the top: 1905-1930—twenty-five years married. Hear Two Families. Mr. and Mrs. Rippentrop are active and happy and look good for another twenty-five yeafs of married life together. We hunted this good couple up at their home in Titonka because we.heard so much about them among the farmers all over that part of the county, when a couple have such a big family grown up they are bound to have lots of relations and be ail important factor in mafly hotted.

With a family of fifteen, all marrie< and raising families of their own 1 is no wonder that Mr. and Mrs. John Ripepntrop are often mentioned to lir news'Columns.

Chicago Hotels and Clubs Placed Special Orders With Packer Bayers for the First time. (By E. R. Morrison, County AgentK J. I/. Boatman of the soils extension service vas to the county Tuesday, September 9, and with the county agent visited the cooperative trial fertilizer plots throughout the county. Mr. Boatman came to secure photo- atraphs showing results of use of potash oh alkali and phosphate on peat soil to be used in preparing slides to je shown at the Farm Managers and Land Valuation Short Course that is held at Ames each spring. Although dry seasons greatly retard fertilizer results still much real evidence of returns was found and several good photographs secured. Farms vlsted included Ed. Droessler farm at Bancroft; Ellman farm at Lakota; Berggren farm at Armstrong; Eberhard & Cotton farm near Lone Rock; D. O. Gardner farm at Algona and H. Helm- ko farm" near Whlttemore. In few cases was any great difference to stalk growth evident, but upon examination of the ears of corn the treated'and untreated areas were in most cases easily located. Untreated areas on peat and muck almost all corn little past the roasting ear stage while treated areas next to them gave a large percentage of good sound well dented corn, which was out of the way of frost. : Mr. Boatman will return in October to assist In harvesting the cooperative plots and attend one or two soil meet- Ings.

CBOWD ESTIMATED ABOUT 2300 PEOPLE. Algona Should Follow in Line and Install System Which Would Cost Approximately $1800. Pocahontas high school defeated Al- >ert City in a night football game on Friday night at Pocahontas by the score of 6 to 0. This was the first night game that has been played in the northern part of the state and it drew a crowd which was estimated at 2300. The field was brilliantly Illuminated with a number of powerful lights on tall poles. The ball was white and could be seen Just as well as to the day time. It was reported that the Ighting system cost around $1500.00. Two games such as last Friday would pay for the equipment. The Pocahontas team played a fast game of football and had the best of the argument throughout the game al- through Albert City played a nice defensive game. There was a large number of people in the stands who drove quite a distance to see the game. It would be a good thing for Algona if night football was installed here. Represntatives of an equipment company were in Algona recently about the matter and the reported price for installing the lights was $1800.00. Algona has always been a good football town and it Would seem that night football would go over big here. Saturday Is a bad day for merchants and business meen to get away for the games and If they were played at night many who could not otherwise attend would be on hand yelling for a Bargains USED CARS '20 6 cyl.

St. Joe Store Now Owned by Devines Livermore Gazette; The old Nichola Gales general merchandise store at St Joe has passed into the hands of Mr and Mrs. William Devine, and they took possession in their own name on September first.
