" "* <' NO. 81 OF AMRIES Presenting The Farmers of Kossulh County Hugh Black Back in the middle of the last century, a boy of 12 at rived in America from Scotland,—he was the father of the Jafe J. F. Black, cmcTthe grand 1 -. father of Hugh. When this Scotch lad finally got as far west as fowa he in one day walked from Mason City to Kossuth county, and here picked his homestead. His son, the father of Hugh, was born on.the old homestead piace in the year 1881, just west of the present well-known Black farm. Today, Hugh 37, farms the place of 480 acres. There are five other children in the family: Mrs. Aclolph Girres, who lives northwest of Wesley; Mrs. George Kain, Plum Creek; Lucille Black, employed at Kelly Field in San Antonio, Texas; Paul A. Black, attorney aJ Webster City; and Mrs. D. G. Fraser, a nurse in Toronto, Canada.. Mrs. Fraser's husband, a flier in the Royal Canadian Air Force, lost his life in the recent conflict. We saw several pictures of Mrs. Fraser's young son of 4, clad in the English-like school boy togs he wears attending a Canadian boys school. Hugh Black is probably best known for the fine herd of 32 purebred Ayshire cows he keeps. This herd has attracted wide attention, and is one of the best-known in Iowa. He also has 60 head of feeding cattle, which he jokingly said keep grinding away the dollars as they feed. There are some 240 head of hogs on the place, half hi-breds and half Hampshires. Crops this past season,' says Hugh, were of average yield like everyone else's, but of good quality. His corn ran from 15 to 40 bushel to the acre, depending upon when plowed. In fhe words of Hugh's mother, Mrs. Black, "This is the year that the farmer should produce all that he can." A WORD ABOUT OUR VISITS TO KOSSUTH FARM-STEADS -V.. Some of the most pleasant and interesting moments we have spent in the post year and a half hove been our 'sketching visits' to Kossuth farms. There is something about entering a warm form Itifchen, especially on a cold mid-winter's afternoon, that worms the soul as well as the body. 'We look forward to many more pleasant visits v/ith Kossuth farmers and their families in the new year to come.
