M. Flnnell, Advance advertising foreman, when the Algona Flour & Feed Co. turned in an advertisement announcing receipt.,of .a carload shipment of .hay from Oklahoma. When the present elderly gen'- eratlon was young, Kossnth was on* of the world's hay centers. In the vicinity of Ledyard haying was for more than a score of years the principal industry. Wtemer A Rich were among the best known hay merchants In the country. Every summer and fall hundreds of cars of hay 'were shipped to market from Ledyard. Inroads of settlers helped bring •bout a change, but drainage on • huge scale was principally responsible. In the old days thousands of acres of north Kossnth land wen under water during most of the crop planting season. Now every farm has been drained, and today the land Is In crops and there Is no better agricultural region anywhere. As a •result hay has become scarce and must now be brought to Kogsnth from..less ,,developed sections of .the country.''."

There Is a deep cut In the side of a hill west of the crossing, and trains are thus hidden from drivers approaching from the west Mr Obrecht came onto the crossing from Jhe west just as the train rounded a curve'to cross" the" road,'and -'his Oldsmobile coach was struck broad side by the engine.
