Newspaper Article: Jewell County REPUBLICAN, 9 Jun 1882, Jewell County, Kansas. Page 6 (IONIA TWP) - Wm. Ault owns 130 acres in school section, No. 16. Mr. Ault purchased his farm and made his first improvements three years ago, but one not acquainted with the facts would suppose he had lived there at least 10 years; his improvements are in advance of the average Kansas farmer's. His house, a frame building erected a little over a year ago, is a model of neatness and convenience; and in the direction of forest and fruit tree culture, around his building site, he has made more progress than many of the first settlers. Middle branch of Limestone flows through his place in a kind of winding way, forming several short bends, in which thick clumps of giant forest trees stand, as yet but slightly thinned out by the woodman's ax. We were surprised to find these groves so well preserved when we take into account the fact that they were considered public property up to three years ago. The early settlers were evidently very honest. He has about 40 acres well under cultivation and expects to add 20 acres to it this season. His tillable land is nearly all planted to corn, which looks extra fine; 5 acres of rye seeded for early feed is the extent of his small grain ventures. He has some 8 acres enclosed with a grasshopper fence, described in our last, in which his little herd of cows with their late offspring's are doing well and cause no trouble whatever; they have free access to water and can graze when they please, a vast improvement, he says, over the lariat and not more expensive. Mr. Ault is a good farmer, noxious weeds find no abiding place on his farm; he never finds time to go fishing or hunting, a good trait in a farmer in a country where fish and game are scarce and weeds extra plenty.
