Notice is hereby given that by virtue of a special execution directed to me from the clerk of the district court of Kossuth county, Iowa on a judgment rendered in said court on the 24th day of February, 1931, in favor of John 8. Thompson as plaintiff and against Samuel E. Chambers and Myrtle Chambers as defendants, for the sum of Pour Thousand Pour Hundred Sixteen and 66-100 ($4,416.66) Dollars and costs, taxed at One Hundred Twenty- One and 60-100 ($121.60) Dollars and accruing costs, I have levied upon the following described real property as the property of the said Samuel E. Chambers, Myrtle Chambers, Farmers Savings Bank of Corwith, L. A. Andrew, Receiver of the Farmers Savings Bank of Corwith, et al, to satisfy said execution, to-wit: The Southeast Quarter (SE',4) of section three (3) in township Ninety-Four (94) north, of Eange Twenty-seven (27) West of the Fifth P. M. Kossuth County, Iowa. And I will proceed to sell said property, or so much thereof as may be necessary to satisfy said execution, with costs and accruing costs, at public auction, to the highest bidder, for cash, in hand, on the 26th day of March, 1031, at the east door of the court house in Algona, in Kossuth county, Iowa, at the hour of ten o'clock a. m. of said day, when and where due attendance will be given by the under- BONNSTETTER FOR STRICT ECONOMY (Continued from Page One). five or ten years) for agriculture? Our foreign markets have been killed thanks to the republican tariff, ou: southern neighbors are curtailing cot' ton production and are preparing to grow corn nnd raise hogs in competi tion with the farmers of the midwest thanks to the farm board. Russia ant many of the European countries are expanding on the production of agricultural products. Modern machinery is playing a great part in putting mor? foodstuffs on the market and restrlctet immigration along with birth control ii responsible for lower consumption o agricultural commodities. I am not ( pessimist, btit at this time I canno see a single encouraging factor tha will contribute to a higher price leve on farm products and farm homes What then Is the solution for this trying condition? There is but one answer and that is lower salaries, fees, wages, and cheaper manufactured goods. As soon as people become reconciled to this solution, the condition will gradually adjust itself and we will again enjoy an ecnomic balance among the various lines of human endeavor. I might say here that a noticeable change along this line has taken place the past year in connection with the manufacturing of shoes and clothing It has been some time since we have enjoyed the reasonable prices on articles named above. The same thing will be true with other commodities and services, in a short time, because there is, at present, too wide a spread between the value of agricultural'pro- ducts and other necessities of life. As the cost of living decreases, the buying power per dollar increases. Hence it costs less to exist and therefore reductions in salaries, rather than increases, should be in order. Don't blame anyone for this line of philosophy. It is my own and it may be of the "soap box" variety, nevertheless, I propose to stick to it. There Is another matter I wish to discuss at this time. It deals with the proposed tobacco and amusement tax. I am not a user of tobacco, neither do I attend the movies frequently, however, I cannot help but feel that taxes of this nature are usually paid by the rank and file of citizens of. every lo- :ality who are already paying their share to maintain the government. We have at present, many rural town "movies" who are struggling for an existence and if the proposed tax becomes effective, they will be compelled to go out of business. Should this be the case, the towns who lose these places of amusement will suffer very materially. Movies in rural towns ire great assets in keeping business at home and no man who really has the welfare of his community at heart can support the measure with a great deal of enthusiasm. In regard to the state constabulary, will say that I am willing to support such a program providing the expenses are born out of the primary road fund. Otherwise, I am opposed to the pro- >osed measure.

Boatman of the extension ser- ice who is in the county this week or a series of soil meetings, held the rst soil survey follow up meeting in he court house at Algona Wednesday vening. Other soil survey meetings be held throughout the county lat- r this spring to assist in as wide a istribution as possible of the soil sur- ey bulletins and general information oncerning their use. These state bulletins are published to include brief discussions of various soil rpes and reports of experimental and emonstration work that has been one along lines of crop production n the various soils. The United States Department of Agriculture bulletin has been out for some time and copies were mailed direct to all farm bureau members, while other copies are available for distribution with the state bulle- tinsat the soil survey meetings. The TWierar.WUletln Includes a large map on the scale of one inch to the mile and a general discussion of agricultural and soils conditions in the county, while the state bulletin contains a small map and a more detailed report as to the soils of the county and their adaptability to various crops. Farmers Are Now Working in the Fields. The beautiful spring weather, 'clear, dry and warm_has given a number of farmers the fever to get into the fields and many of them have been discing, dragging and even plowing. The roads are all In excellent condition and the oply complaint heard is that it is rather dry but the spring rains that always come will no doubt relieve 'this condition. Business houses have then- doors open, robins are seen in many places, and a real spring atmosphere is prevalent. Several who have spent winters in California, declare that this Iowa winter was far better than a winter on the coast with its drizzle and chilliness. LuVerne Lady Died in Minneapolis.
