EMIL CARLSON.
Almost every country on the face of the globe has sent its representatives to become a part of the citizenship of the great American republic, but no land has given us a more industrious, reliable and enterprising class of men than has the kingdom of Sweden, whence comes Emil Carlson, now a leading and successful farmer of Twin Grove township, Jasper county, Missouri, his home being on section 30, where he owns and cultivates eighty acres of land. Mr. Carlson was born in Sweden December 13, 1856, and was reared and educated in that country. He was trained to habits of industry, economy and honesty, and these have proven important factors in his prosperous career in later life. He lived with his father until twenty seven years of age, and then, hoping to better his financial condition in the new world, he crossed the Atlantic to New York city, whence he made his way directly to Jasper county, Missouri. Before leaving the land of his nativity he had married Miss Alma Bralean, also a native of Sweden. She has proved an able assistant and helpmate to her husband, and, for more than a quarter of a century they have traveled life's journey together.

On reaching this county Mr. Carlson took up his abode upon rented land which belonged to James Lewis, and there resided for three years, after which he settled on land that was the property of Mr. Pornston. He thus engaged in the cultivation of the fields until his industry, economy and good management enabled him to purchase land of his own, when he secured the tract of eighty acres upon which he now resides He carries on general farming and stock raising, and his fields are now under a high state of cultivation, while in his pastures and barns are found good grades of horses and cattle He has a fine barn, which he erected; and other substantial improvements and modern accessories which indicate the owner to be a man of progressive spirit, of practical industry and one who manages his property with commendable care. Both he and his wife are consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal church, and in his political views he is a stanch Republican. He is widely and favorably known throughout the community, and his sterling traits of character are such as commend him to the confidence and regard of all with whom he comes in contact.
