Title:A Rooster Crowed at Midnight
Author(s):Getz, Lowell L.
Subject(s):Nostalgia
Farming
Abstract:Not many people driving by over there on the Interstate notice me standing here all alone in this field of waving long green leaves. Oh, once and awhile a passenger may remark to the driver, "Wonder why someone put a windmill in the middle of a corn field?" Well, no one did. When I arrived here from the Dempster Mill Manufacturing Company in Beatrice, Nebraska back in early June 1915, this was not a cornfield. A bustling farmstead stood where now you see only waving green leaves of corn.
