WARREN, MARSHALL COUNTY, MINNESOTA, WEDI^ESDAY, FEBRUARY 16,1921.
BREED S FEATUR E
STOCK SALES AT SHOW
Cattle Market Poor, Yet Considered
Good Under Present Economic
Conditions.
Marshall county buyers at the Farm
Crop bhow in Crooiiston last week
were among the purchasers of some ot
the best stock that went under the
hammer. Jesse Campion bought one of
the.best hogs that appeared in the ring.
It was a Duroc Jersey and brought $130
in the bidding. R. A. Marshall also
bought a good porker as did Ward
Clancy of Stephen. Fred Kurz brought
bacK a bull. C. L. Spaulding brought
home two Holsteins of recognized blood.
Fifty-five head of Holsteins were sold
in the ring at an average of $430 a head
as compared with an average of $665
a head last year. The highest individ
ual sale, a cow, brought $2500, sold to
the Spaulding Farm. The Shorthorns
averaged $225 per head. The decrease
in price from last year was approxi
mate^ $200 ahead in the better blood
ed cattle and is accounted for by
the1st
present economic.conditions more than
anything else, according to those at
tending the showj One of the notice
able features of the sales was the fact
that the good blooded stock ^was much
more in demand by the buyers than the
poorer grades. ^-^t
That there is nothing discouraging
but rather considerable to be optimistic
about as the result of the sales, is the
opinion of C. L. Spaulding, who was
surprised at the large number of buy
ers who attended the sale. The sales
ring was packed at the sales, although
the majority of those there were specta
tors, it showed that there was a keen
interest taken in the sales. According
to Mr. Spaulding, in consideration of
the financial condition of the country
the* sale was a big success, and much
better than was anticipated by the
average stockman.
In all classes of livestock sales the
better blooded animals and pure breds
the more popular lines featured the
sales A large number of buyers from
North Dakota, southern Minnesota and
northern Minnesota were in evidence
at the bartering. Southern Minnesota
buyers figured ui a large number of the
sales.

During the afternoon the sidewalks
resembled the board walk at Newport
on a congenial day. Women behind
baby carriages strolled, visitors from
the country leisured about town, and
every corner a friendly group sunned
itself and talked things over. Looked
spring, felt like summer, but after
all it was winter.

Children In Need
Of: Proper Clothing
That many Marshall county school
children are being kept home from
school because they have not proper
clothing to wear, is the assertion made
by Miss Loretto C. Newman, executive
secretary of the Marshall County Red
Cross, who is making an appeal to the
more fortunate in the county for cloth
ing for these pupils who should be at
tending school. According to the secre
tary, this condition to a large extent,
is due to present financial conditions
and the poor crops of the past year.
It is the opinion of Miss Newman,
that many people are unusually near to
the border line of poverty and a poor
crops means that they must be denied
many of the essentials of the average
family. Present financial conditions
have left many deserving people desti
tute of things with which they would
ordinarily be supplied.
The appeal is made for worn shoes,
coats, dresses and other clothing that
would be useful to children from five
to sixteen years of age with the hope
that aid societies, farmers' clubs and
individuals will prepare boxes of clean
and mended clothing for the use of
those more unfortunate. Clothing for
adults and children not of school age
as well as infants will also be very ac
ceptable, according to Miss Newman.
All such clothing or boxes of clothing
should be sent to the office of the exe
cutive secretary at the court house'in
Warren.

"Just grin when you come in,
-And make it wide, not tight and thin.
Say 'Hello Bill' and 'Howdy Jack'
And slap the other fellow on the back.
Stick out your mit and crack a joke
If no one laughs, no bones are broke,
And by and by you'll make your club
A sort of happy sunshine hub,
That radiates good cheer and vim.
Because you grin when you come in."
