Petroleum Pilot, owned by Walter E.
Besecker, of Walworth county, Wis., is
the youngest grand champion boar the
Chester White breed ever had. He was
farrowed .Sept. 1G, 1918, and was made
grand champion at the Indiana state
fair before he" was 12 months old. He
was sired by Petroleum Giant, a boar
with eight grand championships to his
This great young boar also carries
the distinction of being the highest
priced under year Chester White boar
ever sold, as Mr. Beseeker paid $2,175
for him last October. He has been pro
nounced by many who have seen him
to be the best boar at his age the breed
has produced.
•Last week saw a half dozen organi
zations connected with the farming in
terests of the country in convention at
Chicago. There were various state farm
bureau federations brought into a na
tional organization, there were meet
ings of the Country Life association,
the Association of Agricultural Col
leges and Experiment Stations, the
American Farm Economic association,
the Association of Commissioners of Ag
riculture, American Society of Agrono
my, etc. Almost every state in the
union was represented,, and all Chicago
was talking about the farmer. In Craw
ford county this week as well as last
week, everybody is also talking about
the farmer, what is the matter with
him, what can be done for him, ,'how
the standard of country life can be
raided, how the farmer can get more
mohey for his work, how farm prices
can be stabilized, how more land can
be brought into cultivation, how the
farmer can have more influence in the
affairs of government, how the farmer
must save the nation from anarchy,
and a hundred and one other things.
Anfl all because of the great farm bu
reau drive that is now taking place in
the? county. The solicitors are meeting
with good success in their drive for
membership, and the organization bids
fair to become a fixture. And the farm
bureau will help to decide all the ques
tions enumerated above, and will prove
of lasting benefit to the farmers of the
cotpity. There are a few who will hes
itate about joining, there are always

We understand that LeRoy Dohse,
who now lives near West Side will
move March 1st to the R. C. Langan
farm just east of Vail. This is a new
place, that is the buildings are all new,
and will make Mr. Dohse a fine farm.
lt would seem that Carl A. Oldsen, of
near Wall Lake, is still in the Short
horn business, and in it for keeps, for
he is still buying pure stock. At the
sale held by Silliman at Colo., Novem
ber 12th, Mr. Oldsen purchased two
fine cows—Marchioness 43d, calved
February, 1918, for $950, and Devergoil
Kitty 3d, calved June, 1917, for $950.
At the Graham & Brown sale at Prairie
City he purchased Scotch Maid, Decem
ber, 1911, and her calf at $775, and Miss
Blossom, July 1918, for $475.
Iowa again leads other' states in the
production of corn, according to the re
port of Frank S. Pinney, Iowa field
agent for the bureau of crop estimates.
The average yield is 40 bushels per
acre, or about 5 bushels higher than
the ten-year average of 1910-1919. The
preliminary estimate of the production
of corn this year is 409,000,000 bushels
against 375,624,000 bushels last year
quality 96 per cent. About 3.3 per cent
of last year's crop was on farms Np-.
vember 1st Approximately 7 per cent
of the total acreage was cut for fodder,'
and 4 per cent for silos.

W. C. Lookingbill, for many years
one of the leading auctioneers of Sac
county, who a year or so ago moved to
California, has returned to Sac City and
will again take up the auctioneering
business. Mr. Lookingbill has in the
past often used the Review1 columns for
his advertising, and he is quite well
known in the north and east end of
Crawford county.
W. C. Mason has been doing excep
tional work in dragging the Lincoln
highway between Denison and Vail.
During the past season he has kept this
road in fine condition, and it has .al
ways been passable when other stretch
es of the highway were not. The con
dition of the highway at the Balle farm
is not the best, because of the new fill.
This .will require some attention before
the freezing weather sets in. Over west
of Dow City the highway is very bad
because of a new fill, and almost every
day cars are being pulled out of the
mud with teams. The Deloit road we
understand has been repaired out near
the Reimers .farm, just north of Deni

work. Last week some twenty mem
bers went to work and hauled sand and
gravel donated by Ike Howorth, and
filled in the road..
