D Pi NO. 15 OF A CENTENNIAL VF,AU SERIES The Farmers of Kossuth County Herman E. Plathe One of Kossuth's 'show- place farms' is the Plathc place just a couple of miles south of Irvington. Over a period of 36 years, the Plathcs have developed it not only into one of Iowa's fine farms, but the surrounding grounds and gardens have the charm of well-kept city residences. The Plathe farm consists of some 320 acres, 160 of which is planted to seed corn for Pioneer. About 250 head of hogs are raised each year. On the home place, Milford Plathe, a son, has just completed 1 a brand-new home for his own family. Milford, incidentally, is one of our "Flying Farmers", having his own plane. South of the home place lives a daughter .Mrs. Ted Hilbert, where her husband, Ted llilbert, farms 240 acres. We must mention, too, the Plathe grandchildren— about as healthy and-happy a brood as we've seen. On the day we visited the farm, they kept Grandma and Grandpa pretty occupied, but one could see that Grandpa Plathe took a lot of pride in those youngsters. IOWA FACTS 108,000 trucks are owned in Iowa—one for every 23 persons in the state. It is the policy of this hank to meet your money needs promptly, fairly, confidentially, and at reasonable cost.

Cashier THE BEST HEALTH INSURANCE •ft Do not feel that you must be sick before you consult a physician. Preventive medicine is the medical watchword of today. The physician is more concerned in keeping you in good health than in finding you ill, A periodic physical examination is the best form of health insurance you can buy. If your physician thinks you need medicine, he will prescribe it. You can do no better than to bring your prescription to us for prompt, professional service.
