John J. Herman and family moved up from Illinois several weeks ago and onto their land, a quarter section, about 6 miles south east of here. There is no clearing on this land, but Mr. Herman has come here full of ambition to make a farm out of it.  In later years quite a number of settlers came up from Illinois to locate on land east and south of here, but very few seem to succeed and invariably returned to whence they came.  Mr. Herman contributes this to the fact that the majority of these people come from cities and have not the first principle of farming, much less have they any idea of the trials and hard knocks connected with the clearing of a farm.
