Ed Young, "The boys will have to waste a few months of their time now
J.O. Laffer: "I've been wearing a coat and vest all summer to keep
F.I. Drake: "In regard to school parties, I think the paper hit the
nail right on the head last week."
W.J. Carpenter: "I never lived in a town I liked better than Jewell,
and my wife feels the same way."
Ira Crouse: "A lot of farmers out our way planned to buy motor cars
this fall if the corn crop had come in."
Henry L. Johnson: "I'm gong to put my wheat in when the time comes
whether it rains or not. The corn ground is in good condition for
R.E. Bunch: "I had twenty-six unsharpened plow lays stacked up before
me when I quit work Saturday night. That shows what the farmers are
J.N. Craven: "While I am going back in the store I intend to still
look after the insurance business I have worked up, and I wouldn't
even run from a trade. My health won't let me put in all my time in
John Kemmerer: "After a man has lived in a community until he knows
his neighbor's horses by name, it gives him a pretty big wrench if he
has to pull up and leave."
Mrs. I.M. Hockman: "We had a good time visiting the Jewell folks in
the west. Arthur Plowman's have a nice place in Idaho, but Mrs.
Plowman says that no matter what they have she will never be happy

the West if he could move about a dozen Jewell families out there.

Miss Beth Harrison: "I've already been asked."
Mrs. Chas. M. Gaston, (Bay Point, Calif.): "C.A. Smith's great
$5,000,000 lumber plant where Mr. Gaston has worked since he came to
California and where Ernest started to work last Monday, was swept
away by fire last Saturday night, so it will become necessary for us
to hunt a new place to live and to work. We almost have a family
fight each week when the REPUBLICAN bring us the news from home, to
see who will get it first."
Mrs. W.R. Strickler, (Gundy Center, Iowa): "We have a dandy corn crop
here. Grass and gardens are simply fine. Am feeding tomatoes to
chickens. You can't give them away. Have a spring on the farm that
runs a two-inch pipe continuously. It looks pretty good to us."
Miss Eva Sandborn: "I dreamed the other night that I was just ready
to get married, but when I saw who he was I backed out."
J.L. Trussel: "My long observation in Kansas is that a dry summer
means a wet fall. We'll get it all right."
John Bottorf: "The high price of horse feed is what's cutting down my
Timmy Williams: "In a month from now you can put a shock of this corn
fodder in a terbacker sack; but we've got the wheat and got the
straw, so nothing need go hungry. I think folks are foolish that
sell all their stock."
12 SEPT 1913
C.S. Edwards: "Hogs won't do any good on wheat in cold weather.
There is no heat in it."
Mrs. J.L. Gann: "We raise our living all right with our butter and
eggs, if we do buy it at the store."
Mrs. Ernest Rose; "We have to come to town and buy everything we eat.
We even have to buy our ice now. We never ran out of ice before."
Jack Hicks: "Put a lobelia poultice on any boil and it will be
soothed in ten minutes so you can go to sleep."

going to stay on the farm as long as time lasts."
Mrs. J.H. Furey: "Send the REPUBLICAN to 405 San Pedro St., Los
Angeles, Calif. On our way now. Having fine trip."
Ole Hansen: "The alfalfa seed on my land made eight bushels per acre.
Some alfalfa around Randall is making 12 bushels per acre, which with
the hay crop runs up to $100 per acre."
J.L. Gavin: "I'd like to hitch some boys up, tie their heads up till
their necks ached, and then drive them around until they learned
something about a horse."
J.W. Berry: "If the frost holds off three weeks my kaffir corn will
make ten tons of silage per acre."
Cal; Ohlinger: "Speaking of the high cost of beef, we paid Wallace
$100 for one beef animal."
Frank M. Postlethwaite, M.D.: "Have been in North Kansas City 2
weeks, have had 23 patients and they are all living yet."
Dr. Wesselowski (Explanation of why it didn't rain Sept 5th): "Oh,
I'm just a liar, like all the rest of the weather prophets."

C.W. Bowles: "I'm looking for 90 cent wheat."
George Seamans: "Dew fell last Monday morning for the first time in a
John Kemmerer: "Most folks are getting rid of their hogs. That's
just why I'm going to hang on."
Mrs. P.A. Pyle: "Am moving to Albany, Ind., and you know I can never
do without my old friend, the REPUBLICAN."
Ferris Pence: "I don't care if it is robbing the cradle, I think
Leona Green is the nicest girl in town."
Ruth Kelsey: "I think I have a fine school - 7 girls and 17 boys."
D.E. Taylor: "Tested 141 kernels of wheat; got 139 sprouts."

a ten cent dinner served in the basement."
R.C. Madsen: "Our school is going fine. I think we have a good
J.A. Plowman: "I like Jewell better than any place I ever lived, and
Idaho is all right too: but we didn't have much use for Canada. The
seasons are too short. Snow falls on the grain before you can get it
harvested. I never saw such rich soil though anywhere."
E.D. Fisher: "My mausoleum has come, but I'm not going to get into it
until I have to."
