CHARLES L. HRADEK.
An excellent farm on section 15, Pilot township, pays tribute to the care and labor bestowed upon it by its owner, Charles L. Hradek, who was born in Johnson county, Iowa, on the 10th of December, 1871, a son of John Hradek, more extended mention of whom appears elsewhere in this work.

Our subject was educated in the district schools of Pilot township and until his marriage remained at home, assisting his father with the work of the farm. Shortly after his marriage he located upon his present farm, which he had purchased a few months previously, and he has since resided upon that place, which is excellently improved and from which he derives a good financial return. In 1910 he built one of the most modem residences in Pilot township and the same spirit of progressiveness has led him to equip his place with everything needed for the successful carrying on of agricultural pursuits. He owns one hundred and sixty acres of land and finds that its cultivation leaves him comparatively little time for outside interests. However, he is a stockholder in the Farmers Savings Bank of Williamsburg and in the Swankee Banking Association of Swankee, Washington.

Mr. Hradek was married on the 23d of August, 1898, to Miss Frances F. Flick, a daughter of John Flick, one of the pioneers of Pilot township. To this marriage have been born three children, James R., John G. and Gladys C.

Mr. Hradek. is a democrat and for six years has been a member of the school board. Both he and his wife are devout members of the Roman Catholic church and do all in their power to widen its influence. They are highly respected by their fellow citizens and have many friends.
