BERNAU • "Six miles south of the courthouse as Ihe crow flies" is the way August Bernau describes the location of his farm in Riverdale township. He bought the place five years ago, and before that farmed for some 19 years in section 36 of Whillemore township. August was born in Madison county, Iowa, and " came to Kossuth 28 years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Bernau were married 38 years ago on the 29th day of March. August remembers the date precisely, because the wedding was to have been held on the 28th, but the minister was suddenly called away and they had to postpone the nuptials one day. The Bernaus have seven children: Amelia, of Waterloo, 111.; August J., farming on the west edge of Burl; Roland, farming in Whittemore township; Mrs. Vera Harms, Whittemore township; Ernest and Otto, both of whom farm in Whitlemore township. August says he got about a half a crop last season, due to the dry weather we had, but says he always lakes things as they come, and believes it will be better this year. At present August has 8 brood sows, along with 18 ewes and 14 new lambs. Also on the Bernau farm you will find a span of likely looking mules—a blue roan and a strawberry roan, both of them "mighty good workers , according to August. . . . ,.i ,....,„.
