THILGES Even in Kossuth county, where you Hnd many farms that have been in one family for years, almost 100 consecutive years of farming by one family is something of a real record. Wilmer Thilges, 29, is the third generation of his family to farm the Thilges place of 230 acres ip Riverdale township. He has been in partnership with his brother Walter for the oast four years. Wilmer was born and raised on the present place —or at least he says "that's what they tell me." His father, the laie H. M. Thilnes, was born there before him, and before that his pioneer grandfather came to the place in the davs of the Indians. Mrs. Kaihryn Thilges. Wilmer's mother, is on the farm with the boys. This year the Thilges brothers have 130 acres in corn, 90 acres in oats, cmd will have about 30 in beans. They feed 30 head of Herefordl cattle, and have some 80 little pigs. They milk 8 cows. Wilmer says that for a start this looks like a good crop year, bur he can't tell too much yet. He is an ardent fisherman, and plies this hobby as much as he can between work sessions in the fields.

First gjrl in pur to\yn to "get her jnan" on Leap'Year was the Clippers' daughter* Jane, who wed Bill Webster's boy lasi Saturday. When I asked Bill Jr. if it wns true tharJaney really did the proposing, Bill said: No, but she rnadc it plain she'd make an ideal wife. Instead of looking for diversion or excitement every evening, she was content to chat beside the fire. ''I could plainly see,".says Bill, "that we'd really have a happy home life—which is just exactly what I want from marriage." J I know it's usual for older folks to shake thoir heads over the younger generation. (It's gone on for hundreds of years, now.) But from where I sit, young- people of marrying nge today arc every bit as'Commendable as their ciders were—in their temperance (a glass of beer for instance), tolerance, and common sense.
