AXEL ^NDERSON AT REST.
Axel Anderson, one of the early set
tlers of this place, passed away quietly
at the Warren hospital last Thursday
morning, with cancer of the stomach,
which disease although progressing
more or less for the last twelve years,
has not been considered serious and not
until the last year been sufficiently
grave to curtail the activities of this
industrious man. Mr. Axelson whose
old country name was Axel Severus
Johanson, was born at Hammarland,
Sweden, on May 3, 1872, and when but
16 years old entened the career of a
sailor as cook on the sail ship "John",
between Sundsvall and London. After
a six years employment at this trade
Mr Axelson" on May 3rd, 1S93, emi
grated to America and came to Warren
and for many years was employed as a
farm hand. Tempted, however, by the
governments free land in those days, he
in March, 1899, came to this place, but
finding all free lands here by that time
occupied, he purchased the right of his
present farm east of here from Martin
Lee who had homesteaded it at the
time. Married early at Warren he
made his home here for a few years
until his wife died when he again made
Warren his home for a few years until
March 18, 1903, when "he was united in,
marriage to Miss Julia Jacobson of that
place, and again came her and has since
made this place his home.
To mourft? besides his -wife, are nine
children, Viola, Victor, Minnie, Julia,
Alma, Herman, Otto and Emil, all resi
dents of this place from his last mar
riage and Nels Axelson, at present a
resident of Idaho,-from the first mar
riage, and his aged father, Axel John
son, and one sister, Mrs. Ella Mattson,
both residents of Sweden.
Mr.'Axelson was an industrious and
progressive man, a live wire in con
nection with all everyday pursuits and
a kind and sympathetic neighbor and
friend. His family life was happy and
as father of a large family he was uni
versally admired and re&pected. To
wards the last when becoming recon
ciled to the fact that his life work was
soon to end, Mr. Axelson devoted con
siderable time to Bible study and in
structing his family in the necessity of
preparing for an eternal salvation, and
regretted deeply that so much of his
life had passed solely 111 the pursuits
(of worldly possessions, but hoping
through the grace of God to one day
become united with his beloved ones on
the shore where no griefs and separa
tion shall enter, and peace and happi
ness shall leign.

rand Story False
the month, reports have come to us that at farmers* meetings
charges bee made, sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly, that
thisCompanyhas adoptedapolicyof refusing tosupplyrepair partsforoldmachines
in order to compel the purchase of new ones. This statement is absolutely false.
Such a policy hasnever been considered by this Company nor suggested to it.
Ordinarily we ignore such reports, because we have learned that any large
company, no matter how fair and high principled, is subject at all times to unjust
criticism. The facts are this Company has always recognized the importance of
repair service and has used everyefiort to make IHC service the best. We believe
we can truthfully say that the repair service furnished wherever this Company's
goods are sold is equal if not superiorto that furnished on anymanufactured line.
We call attention to the fact that machinery "Fix-up Weeks," instead of being
something new and originated by the farmers in 1921, as some seem to think
were really an outgrowuVbf the movement started by manufacturers and dealers*
associations in connection with the Council of National Defense as a war con-
servation measure. Berhaps no other agency has done so much to promote
"National Repair "Weeks* asthis Company.
The farmer needs machines which will be efficient and economical. II his old
'machines can be repaired so as to render efficient and economical service, he
would be foolishjto purchase new ones. Whether the farmer utilizes and repairs
his old machines or buys new ones is a question for him to determine. But in
making his decision, we give to every farmer who owns any IHC machines the
assurance that a full stock of repair parts will always be provided by this
Today, our repair stocks on the territory available for the farmers are 21 per
cent greater than ever before at this time of the year. A average of a quarter
million pounds of repairs are shipped from IHC factories for every working
day in the year. Thirty million dollars'worth of repair parts are now ready, as
insurance for the farmer when he needs this service.
In every International Harvester Works manufacturing orders call for repair
parts first and even when furnishing them has meant cutting down production
of new machines for which we had orders, repairs have always had preference.
At every one of our 91 branch houses trained men are on duty to see that all
orders are filled and shipped prompdy. Thousands of dealers scattered every-
1* where with an assortment of repairs in stock are always ready and willing to
render every assistance.
This service wHch this Company has rendered through Hie years to those who
have purchased its machuWhas been a matter of great pride to the Company,
and is the foundation of thecordialgood-will existing between it andits customers.
We feet it is due theOompany and those who have purchased its machines
that we give the widest publicity to the fact that thk service of repairs will be
maintained and improved, and that any charges to the contrary are untrue.

RUST is caused by a well

grow on common barberry, on which it,
forms rust spores (in"cluster cups") and these

They germinate in moisture furnished by raf "*r_ "H""

The. parasite gets inside and takes its fooo
from the plant and then, within a week or two,
produces the red or summer sporerust familia"

This red^ rust is the summer stage of the Mac

This black stage of the rust can infect onf*
