miles southwest of Cedar Creek.
might here be stated that this farm
has made a great improvement since
last year, as it was at that time
desolate looking tract, with practically
no buildings at all, and where there
once stood a house the weeds, debres
and underbrush shut out all signs of
hibitation. Now here stands a neat
little farm cottage, 18x32, two story,
concrete basement structure, a mod
em hog house, built from concrete,
with a gangway through the middle
and stalls on either side. The wrecked
fences are replaced by modern woven
wire and steel gates, all built in
workman like manner, which adds
greatly to the premises. There is a
fine cistern, a good well of water, f.ne
sidewalks and outbuildings, arranged
and so remodledas to shelter the nice
bunch of stock now raised, new corn
cribs may be seen rounded full of corn
to feed the fine heard of Duroc Jersey
swine numbering 50 to 60 head. There
is pasture room for 20 to 30 head of
cattle, where there is one of the finest
running springs in this section. Mr.
Solberg is indeed fortunate in secur
ing this valuable farm for rent, as it
is an ideal stock farm, and judging
from the surroundings, Mr. Solberg
has assembled stock enough to utilize
the same to the best advantage.
We are sorry to say that Miss Mor
rison is on the sick lit and is unable
to fill her place as teacher in the
school. Miss Verla Schneider has
taken charge of the lower room until
Miss Morrisson is able to return.
