ALdONA UPPEft Dig MOMS^ALGdNA IOWA NO. 14 OF A CENTENNIAL YEAK SEMES Presenting The Farmers of Kossuth County \ Henry Scheppman Henry Scheppman came to Iowa from Minnesota in 1921, or as he puts it: "from one ffood state to one a little better." He first settled in Kossuth county near Burt, and in 1931 moved to his present farm in Irvington township. Although Henry says he retired from active farming on March 1 of this year, we found him in the process of cleaning a large chicken house the day we visited him. The Henry Scheppman farm at present consists of 400 acres. There are seven children in the family—3 sons and 4 daughters. Louis farms 160 acres, and Leroy is a chief petty officer in the Navy, now in Hawaii. The third son, Henry A., now farms the home place, having taken over from his Dad after 4({. years in the Army. The daughters are Mrs. Frieda Gade of West Bend; Mrs. Laura Smith of Lone Rock; Mrs. Minnie Studer of Wesley and Mrs. Esther Smith of Algona. Henry states there are lots of "ups and downs" in farming, which makes it interesting. And he %ays that though the farmer is today enjoying: prosperous times, he should look ahead and prepare for times that mighl not he so good.
