On Decem- 8 at 2 p. m. a meeting will be An tenrty Day Plum Cracker— When we were recently talking with George OSenschoter, in Plum Creek township, he mentioned that the next farm on the north across 1 the road, the Robert Kain farm, had been first occupied by his grandfather, Oliver Benschoter, in 1861. Grandfather Benschoter had started a blacksmith shop in Algona in the spring of 1857, being the pioneer blacksmith in Kossuth county. He operated the shop for several years, then got the landowning fever of the times, and preempted a farm in Sec. 32, then called Portland township, but now Plum Creek. There were 24 acres of timber land on the quarter section when Oliver Benschoter took his claim on it. The blacksmith shop was moved to the'farm, and Mr. Benschoter, who had been elected sheriff, presided there as blacksmith, farmer, and sheriff of the new county. He was one of the lonored pioneers, and raised a 'amily of 16 children. The present George Benschoter is a son of Oliver's fifth son, Grant Benschoter. Grant owned the farm where George's son Clifton now farms, acres in rye, pastured it, and then harvested 20 bushels of rye. He has 130 spring pigs and 41 fall pigs. He does not milk many cows, but raises 'Black Angus baby beef and has 15 head of good animals now. « » * • The A. A. Nelsons, two miles west and a quarter mile south of Seneca, were having a sale. They recently bought the store in Seneca. We counted 166 cars on the place, and most everything sold well. One team of 3 and 4-year- old horses sold for $199. Leghorn pullets sold at 41c each. A.

The 'Benschoter farm was sold to Patrick Kain, another early pioneer, and thus came into the hands of Patrick's son Robert Kain, who added 80 acres and built all the present buildings. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Kain now live on south Worster street here in Algona. The 240-acre farm is operated by the George Neuman family, and is a good crop and livestock producing property. It is only a few short years from the present day back to the first farming days in Kossuth county. It is difficult to realize the uncertainties of those early days. Wheat rust was an affliction that armers met without benefit of ag- icultural bulletins or newspapers. They just met it. Grasshoppers ppeared in the sky and then the 'armers knew they had arrived. There were no newspapers to tell ;hem what was to come or what hould be done There were no with the elder Mr. Nelson at hi son's sale.

As we drove to the field where he was operating a spring-tooth harrow on fall-plowed ground, we wondered whether he was an agricultural college man, so we asked. Mr. Oxley replied that when he went to school 50 years ago at Corwith, the school was not even graded, and he never attended college. "We reminded him that of his old schoolmates at Corwith only one, ated, and other weeds have brought under control with Robert there. Hardwick, The teacher, still resides John Magor, died at Chicago only last year.
