]\JRS. EMMA PATE of Garden City may be nearly 50 but she's still the "baby daughter" of Mrs. Louis (Jane) Wiegel, 914 West First. And Mrs. Wiegel, at 92, is off, as usual, to Garden City to spend the summer with Mrs. Pate. . . She left the other day, turning over the housekeeping to her son, John L., with whom she has lived since her husband died about 12 years ago and she quit the homestead farm west of Hutchinson. Until then Mrs. Wiegel had farmed with the best of them and right now, as a housekeeper, she doesn't miss a beat. To be sure she hasn't done the washing for two or three years, but she does all the ironing, and she doesn't have to have glasses when she reads—never did! In fact, Mrs. Wiegel at 92 is better than a good 50 per cent of those half her age. She has wrinkles, of course, but she stands straight and .slender, and although she landed in Kansas just after the grasshoppers—about 1875—she doesn't dwell on the "good old days" . . . She's right proud, though, of her many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren—particularly of those cute twin daughters of Lieut. Robert and Margaret (von Leonrod) Pirtle, who've just gone back with their mother lo California after several weeks with the Hutchinson grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. George von Leonrod.
