PHILLIPS Over half a century on one farm is an achievement, even in soil-rich Kossulh county—but it is the record of M. N. Phillips, who has lived on his farm of a quarter section in Cresco township since 1894. Born in Lancashire county, Pennsylvania, Mr. Phillips came here via a short stop in Illinois, and says he was three vears old when '"he landed in loway". In addition io the quarter section of the homeplace. he owns an eighty just south. Mr. Phillips' son-in-law, Allen Smith, has done the active farming on the place for the past 12 years, and he is now assisted by his son, Joe, 16 years of age. Mr. and Mrs. Smith also have a daughter, Marian. Another daughter of Mr. Phillips is Mrs. Erma Palmer of Algona. Crops on the Phillips farm were good in '47, despite the floods and dry weather. Corn ran 50-60 bushel, and Mr. Phillips says they couldn't grumble on other crops. Prospects for '48, in his opinion, are all right so far'. Although M. Phillips does not lake an active part in farming, he keeps mighty busy. In fact, his daughter Mrs. Smith says he keeps too busy. His jobs, Mr. Phillips says, are now to 'tinker around, keep up the garden and do all the trimming and lawn work' that is necessary on this beautifully landscaped Kossuth county farm. NOTHING HIT OR MISS ABOUT IT ai- Modern farming to be profitable, demands adequate buildings, good machinery, sufficient working capital plus good management. Operating a farm with less is as much of a handicap as riding a lame horse in a race. For many years we have helped farmers to better farming profits. May we be of service to you?
