PACE TWO_ NO. 12 OF A CENtENNtAL YEAft Presenting The Farmers of Kossutli County A}?- John Erpelding It was on a rainy morning that we drove into John Erpclilinff's place in Irvinslon township, about 5 miles southeast of Alffona. John was in the process of making machinery repairs, prior to threshing, but he consented to "sit" for his picture. In 1902, Mr. EfpeltliiiR came to his present place, from St. Joe. There was no tile on the land in those clays, and only a tiny house. The Erpeldinfr farm now consists of a half section, with 120 acres east of that and three 80's south. 300 acres are in corn, oats and beans. The Erpelilinfrs have 3 sons and a (laughter, who is now working- in Oakland, Calif. The three sons are all on the farms, Ollie, Alphonse and William, the latter two of whom arc married. Mrs. Erpeiding, on the (lay we visited the farm, was canning a beautiful lot of cherries. John says that he "has enjoyed it all these years, through tough years and good years." IOWA FACTS Fifty-five new factories and the $34,000,000 Aluminum Corporation 'of America plant have come into Iowa in the past year. Yes, industry is coming into Iowa. But the emphasis is still on rural dwellers and their luxuriant farms and tasselecl corn. It will be that way for many, many years to come—just as the emphasis in this bank,w*ill be on giving personal, friend-to-fricnd banking service—the kind of banking service you like.
