TO THE VAULT fefcr - And Y*w ly Dick Polmtr The post office received supplies of the new 4 cent Lincoln, the first of the new regular series. The back ground shows the vail of a log cabin and the medium black coloring gives the stamp both dignity and strength. If this is at all indicative of the other releases scheduled for 1966 then the new regulars will lie a fine series. I do think, however, that the inclusion of historic buildings might well have been continued. However, the series will serve to honor several in the cultural fields who have not previously appeared. With the extensive use of meters, the higher values have a rather restricted use. I wonder what percent of our population has actually seen the current $5 value picturing Alexander Hamilton. Within the past few days, I h«vp participated in a couple of plate-looking exercises and some very nice items, indeed, were turned up. In checking over forgotten assortments of plates and general china, watch for a number on the bottom. This usually means that the edition was limited rather than a general pattern. Consequently, the survivors over the years will be correspondingly fewer. Much beauty may well be gathering dust in some attic box or hidden away on some seldom -explored top shelf. I guess anyone who accumulates shares the problem of display. Most antique and many gift shops have metal spring hangers that will hold your plate securely, if the proper size for wall display. There are also metal and plastic stands for table and shelf display. While it may not be practical to have everything out at once, both of these methods permit easy change to give your decor some variety. The stand permits the greatest degree of variation as there may be a problem relative to matching a plate with the wall paper. This is particularly true if the paper has much of a pattern. Solid colors or paintcrl walls present less difficulty. - o - Perhaps you have noted the appearance of the cai nival glass reproductions for this holiday Season. There would seem to be no real danger of any of them being passed off for the genuine. All are marked and, while the general appearance suggests carnival, that is as far as it goes. Tho pieces I have examined lack the basic glass coloring and everything else suggests the artificial. I really don't find them particularly attractive but in any field I think contact with the original results in distaste for the reproduction. Those interested in old furniture no doubt view contemporary "Early American" displays with scorn while I find them most attractive. So, those of you not infected with genuine carnival might find the current crop an interesting addition. I would not recommend the reproductions as a gift, how- New feature* coming Algeria Theatre Sunday "Joy In The Morning" and "The Rounder*" HIS .ii\l) IIEHS . . .

Most will not mix originals and antiques. - o As an Inexpensive, yet While termed towels, many of these serve equally well as a wall decoration or a covering for small tables, Some are available In patriotic or historic themes and others pertain directly to various hobbies such as silver, glass, pottery, firearms, pewter, etc. I have always found these to be very useful and it is handy to have some extras when you want to change things around. Any of these would be excellent for use in an Early American decor whether any collection is involved or not. - o The state liquor store has a festive air with an unusually attractive assortment of seasonal gift bottles, Including a few ceramics, Since the companies do change every year then you have, in essence, a limited edition, If you don't care for the basic product, this would appear to be a rather expensive way to get a bottle, yet I will wager that In future years some of them would bring enough to at least return your Investment. I was amused by a recent reprint of an article on the trials and tribulations of a weekly editor who experienced some difficulty disposing of a highball when the minister suddenly called. I have often wondered where the idea ever originated that ministers Algona Community School Adult Education Program OPENING DATE AND HOURS - All classes begin on Monday evening, January 10, 10CG, unless otherwise designated.

A high point of $16 to $17 was reached and now some offers appear around $13. I think the price will continue to drop as more hoards are fed to the market. Over 3 million were minted and I don't think there are 3 million who really care enough about proof sets to pay the current rate. The demand is largely confined to this country. The recent Austrian set with a mintage of but 100,000 is selling for less than the mint new issue price. On Injunction According to Gordon Wlnkel, county attorney, Kossuth has joined Mitchell county on an injunction enjoining the tax commission from making tax increases and from proceeding with the increase because notices sent by the commission were not timely.
