Many Kossuth county farmers have been planning some emergency hay crop as a substitute for seeding? destroyed by the drouth last year. F. 3. Wilklns of the forage crops department of Iowa State College, suggests that the soy bean is Ideally suited to produce an emergency supply of legume hay that is practically equal in feed- Ing value to alfalfa and clover because the crop can be harvested in eighty days after it has been seeded the latter part of May. Over a period of years several varieties have yielded over two tons of dry hay per acre at the Iowa station. Sudan grass gives higher yields than soy beans and the seed is cheaper, but the hay is not nearly as high in feeding value, acording to Wilklns. Neither sudan grass nor soy beans should be seeded before May 25. Sudan grass is superior to both millet and sorghum for general purposes. Common foxtail millet produces a crop quicker than sudan grass when sown after small grain harvest, but the hay is not of as high Quality. Sorghum produces higher yields than sudan grass, but the forage is coarser and more seed is required for broadcast seeding. For harvest before July, oats Is superior to any other emergency hay crop and the oat hay crop is often worth more than the grain. Intense Cultivation. European bindweed or creeping Jennie may be controlled by Intense cultivation and keeping down tjhe top growth, by pasturing closely or by spraying with chemicals if the patches of weeds are not so large as to make the cost prohibitive, according to R. H. Porter, extension specialist at Iowa PERSONAL LOANS On Easy Terms Ready Cash-Service We loan you money on a few minutes' notice In amounts from $50.00 to $300.00.

ES.NOKTONSON YAR£> THAT SAOe$ AMP SATISFIES* \ State College, Who? is helping Iowa farmers in their weed eradication campaign. Although various methods of keeping down top growth and killing out the bindweed may be used, the following example is typical: A field infested with bindweed may be seeded down to clover and pastured with sheep. The clover should be followed with corn for two seasons. A spring tooth harrow or ordinary harrow should be used on the ground before planting the corn. After planting the crop, the field Should be blind plowed with a surface cultivator equipped with sweeps or blades that shave Just under the top of the ground. This operation should be done about every three to flve days. In August and September lambs may be allowed to run in the corn in the fall to keep the bindweed eaten off. Oilier Methods. Another method is to cultivate until June 1, then plant soy beans hi rows so that the surface cultivation can be practiced throughout the remainder of the season. If the corn or soy bean method Is used two years then the land can be reseeded and pastured or sown to alfalfa. If a farmer prefers summer fallowing, surface cultivation Is more effective than plowing and disking. Much of the summer fallow hi Iowa has been of the wrong type. Plowing and disking keep the soil stirred and cause plant food to be lost. If this practice is not continued the next year, the roots spread worse than ever. Sodium chlorate spray may be used on small patches in the summer or fall. If this spray Is used, detailed directions should be secured from county agent or state college concerning its use as it is dangerous to handle. In one field hi 1930, which of course was an unusual year, the yield of corn on part of a field where the bindweed was constantly cut off was ten times as great as where the ordinary cultivation with a shovel cultivator was practiced.

Ex-Governor John Hammill of Britt noted the recent death of Grant Jordan, former Algona man, whose obituary we printed in the issue of April 29, and called the attention of Editor Roberts of the Tribune to the matter. Mr. Roberts has kindly sent us a clipping taken from an Indiana paper, part of which we produce below. Grant was employed in the State Historical Building at Des Moines for a time. The Indiana paper says: "He was active in politics and at one time held a responsible position by appointment of Governor Hammill, of Iowa, which position he resigned when he came back to Indiana a few years ago. "He was a man of pure and clean thinking and conversation, never indulging in vulgarity or profanity. He was patriotic and law abiding, and a stickler for law enforcement. Amid all his misfortunes and roving inclinations, he was always sober ant} industrious. And with all his faults and failures, he never lost his honor. "He was a man of wide information, which was gained both by travel and much reading. He wasted no time in reading cheap trash, too often found on our news stands, but selected only the best. Just the past few months he read both the life of Chief Justice Marshall and the life of Abraham Lin. coin. In his belongings was found a beautiful Bible that shows age and much use, with favorite passages of appropriate scripture marked and underscored. One of many such passages Is this: "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also In me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." "Few men are endowed with as good memories as he, or can express themselves more fluently. "In early childhood he united with the Christian church at Antloch and lived and died in that faith. He was a loyal patriot, a loyal friend and a loyal neighbor. He was a member of the Masonic order at Newberry, Indiana, and in his memory this lodge has very appropriately ministered in the last sad rites of a most worthy brother."

Summit: Two automobile loads of gypsies came to town Tuesday morning and gayly dressed females of the tjibe proceeded to work the street, while the men held council as to which was the best road to the western part of the state. At the light company's office they talked Buck Lynn into having his fortune told. While in the process for telltales of the future, a customer, came in, and Ray left the women while taking care of the customer and making change from the cash register—making sure that the gypsies were not near the cash. However, the fortune was finally foretold and the gypsies departed. Some time afterwards a check of the cash drawer showed that it was thirty dollars short. Mr. Lynn, In company with the deputy sheriff, followed the band to Armstrong, where they were made to disgorge thirty dollars after some argument and an agreement that if three ten dollars bills were found on the floor at the office, the thirty dollars would be returned to the gypsies. At the time Lynn and Swenson were in Armstrong, the gypsies were being held on a charge of taking fifty dollars from a garage man's pocket book that afternoon. Fenton High School Gave Class Play. Fenton, May 12. Special: The seniors presented their class play, "Who Wouldn't be Crazy," last Friday even- Ing. All of the cast did exceptionally well and were rewarded for their efforts by a full house. Clever specialty numbers were given between acts by Warren Randall and Lawrence Glaus. The high school orchestra, under the direction of Miss Martha Gilbert, supplied the music. The stage was cleverly arranged to represent a stone wall around a sanitarium with evergreens around the side to represent trees and shrubbery and a live tree planted in one corner. The class did a cood deal of extra work arranging the ' scenery, which helped to make their play a success. Fishing Season Opened on Friday. Friday morning early ah early Hsef could see numerous enthusiastic Algon- lans wending their way to the river north of town and carrying all kinds of fishing paraphernalia. The season officially opened up on that day and the boys were anxious to try their luck. It had been previously reported that the river abounded with pickerel and the mouths of many Algonlans were watering in anticipation of a feast. Wo have heard that the fishermen were so thick around the dam that the lines would get tangled up. But at that quite a few caught some fish and the others had a good time anyway. Henderson Was Seen at Wesley Recently. Titonka Topic: Rumor originated at Wesley last Friday that Henderson, the bank robber had been seen in a coupe with a Minnesota license and was headed north on the gravel road toward Titonka. Titonka vigilantes were called from the sheriff's office but no trace of the fugitive was found here. Two Wesley men are convinced, however, that they saw the much hunted man. One of the men said he followed him for five miles but he was driving over fifty miles an hour and he had to give up the chase. Description of one of the men who held up the Klkton, South Dakota, bank Friday morning tallies exactly with the description of Mr. Henderson. West Bend Man Gets $300 Fine. Emmetsburg, May 16. Special: Earl Cobb, rural letter carrier of West Bend was sentenced to pay a fine of $300 and costs for maintaining a liquor nuisance at his homfe in West Bend by Judge F. C.
