Charles began farming in 1895, four miles north of Bancroft, and moved 22 years ago to his present lo- :ation on the north edge of Bancroft. He has a fine house and well cared for lot of 15 acres.

L. C. flatten and his sons are farming a half section about five miles northeast of Bancroft. I had ommit- ted to copy his name down on my list. and wn.s therefor? furorised to flnd that he was taking The Upper Des Moines. but it was a welcome surprise. Mr. Hatten very hospitabily invited me to remain for dinner if I could eat what they were used to. Just, as (hou<?h I was used to something with a fancy French name, and all I can say is that the Hatten family who are privileged :o sample Mrs. Batten's pies are certainly a lucky group, because she had an apple pie that, makes my mouth water every time I think about it. —o— | Harry Looft was hauling rocks out of a field on his place about eight miles north of Bancroft, and I can't say that I wa.s sorry he was haulin? the load in. because alUiough I would gladly have helped him, if there Is anything I hate worse than rocks it is more rocks. Harry seemed to be catching up on a f?w odd jobs around his farm so that when the weather pets settled ho will bo ready to get at his corn planting. We might add that Harry is one of the aggressive type who has not thrown up the .^ponge nnd said it's no use. —o— Frederick Schultz. Lone Rock merchant, seemed to be doing a thriving business.

Ted is on the place where he was born; the farm his father lomesteaded of 160 acres. Ted batched it for quite a few years on the home place, but now is a benedict along wtth a lot of the rest of us. He is one of few that I have run across who has his full quota of pigs under the corn-hog allottment plan. Most of the people I meet have reported that they are nowhere near going to make their allotment, as the mortality of litters seems to be running high for some unknown reason. W. B. Leslie and his son, Walter, an ex-service man. are farming a half Etction about three miles west of Lakota. Mr. Leslie was the first postmaster of Ledyard. starting his first term in February, 1889. Although he is 71 years of age. he is still farming the place he has been on for the past 40 jears. Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Brhse from near Lafeota trucked a load of potatoes to Des Moines last week. Henry Hoppe batched it while they were gone and took care of th* farm work. Glen farms 160 acres, and plans on putting in 20 acres of potatoes this year. Ed Looffs place is next to the Behse farm. Looft had a mighty fine batch of English Leghorn hens. He told me he sold most of the eggs to the Elmore hatchery. He has about 1.000 chicks, six weeks old, all doing nicely.
