OF A CENTRNNtAt/YKAft SERIES P '\ resenting i The Farrrtfers of Kosistith County Maurice Bernhard 42 years ag-o Maurice Berhhartl was born on the farm to which his father came as one .of the early settlers, in 1889. Maurice has lived on this'samei place ever since, and today farms that same 'farm',' the 460 acres known as "Des Moines Valley Farm". It' is located 4 miles west of Bancroft. , . There are 6 children in the Maurice Beriihard fam 1 ily—5 boys and a dauchler-—the oldest boy now" 17. Maurice sa.v>dt's a family "with'a lot of 'pep 1 '—and oil the farm there is a regulation baseball diamond \yherc a ffame is played "almost every night". We suspect Maurice is in those baseball games, .too, for he's a rabid ball fan, plays himself and sa'ys his farm 1 league team is almost "ready to take on the Mexican league." The Bernhard farm at present has 145 acres of corn, 45 of beans and 100 of bats. There are 230 head ' of hoffs, 70 head of cattle and "two darned fc^od riding? horses," as Maurice says, which'the BcrnhaVds ride often. And you guessed it—at the'time Mauj-ice had : this picture'drawn, he was watching—a baseball'game!
