K Tidbits by Evelyn II low* hud California heal ., • . ... ., . tkliforftia could have some of the next day she had muscles in water; both states would foe better toff. A recent letter my cousin Melvin Hendef* 6f Upland, Cal., says, "How about trading you some real hot and dry weather for some of your cold and wet. I am still suffering from the heat of last fear and it looks like a repeat llterformance again this year. It Was 93 today.(April 4) and 8$ yesterday and Saturday. We have had another real dry winter, only half the normal amount rif rain so far, and the season is about through. With all the jieople and uses for water, we are ftcing a most serious problem." If you think your correspondence is large, how's this for statistics. Emily Meyer, Titonka, informed me in a recent .Eastei letter that she has to her credit for 1959, 1?04 letters, 105 business letters and 253 cards. In return she received 1590 letters, 104 business letters and 210 cards She says, "If postage takes another boost I'll have to slow down." Ugh — I have writer's cramp just thinking* about it. Mrs Ethel Cilles was called upon one day this week by Rev and Mrs S. H. Hammer, Gilmore City. They stopped to greet me too. The Hammers were residents of Swea City when Mrs] Gilles lived there and he was her pastor After serving many years at S. C., at the last conference he was transferred to Gilmore City. * • • When Mrs Marie Ogren told me she had been at Omahfc. jifeb., visiting her son-in-law and . daughter, Mr and Mrs J. C. Gibson I asked her if it was pretty damp around the edges. She replied, "Yes, and in the middle too." Referring to tht floods, of course. • • * * When Mr and Mrs Andrew Hansen were in LeMars, April 3, purple and yellow crocuses were in bloom. Hope the poor little Ihings didn't get frozen stiff When the cold wave came along. iVhen I was in my home I used io enjoy Mrs Rosa Jones' early tulips, which are planted south of her house. August Slagle has mad. up his mind cooking is quite an art, which he is willing to leave in the capable hands of his wife Millie. While she was on a visit at Mountain , Home, Ark., with her brother-in-law and sister Mr and Mrs Selby Russell, August prepared the breakfast bacon but was disappointed with the. results. The bacon was slithery and sort of on the raw side. His son-in-law Orville Duncan told him to pour off the grease as the bacon cooked, then let it fry some more. August followed instructions and things were going pretty well till the pan upset and the family dog got the bacon right off the floor. - * • • .Additions to the nurses aides— Sandra Shilling and Frances Pruisman, both very efficient and most likable. ' • '• • Evalyn McDougall and her sister Marcia Kent, Columbus. Miss., were here, the other day. Marcia had come to visit her mother, Mrs Fred Tubbesing at Friendship Haven, Fort Dodge. It was wonderful having that visit, for Mrs Tubbesing died suddenly and it will always be a satisfactory memory those precious hours together. * •_ * Mrs Jennie Luken spent from Friday till Sunday at Wesley with her daughter, Mrs Viola Studer, Her 87th birthday was observed. You just can't k.ep a good gal down, and Lizzie Post is that, i: there eyer was one. She has more energy and "get up and go' than any four women put together. Saturday morning,'.April 2, she fell on the basement steps; slipped on a plastic jar cover that she had lost. Jnstead of parking herself at home on the davenport, she worked at the Methodist rummage sale. When she got home around noon, the ankle was very swollen and painful. A trip to the doctor and an x-ray revealed no broken bones, but it was a bad sprain. She tried crutches., nearly fell on her nq,so. And the crutches were promptly' discarded- Mabel Paxson ottered to give her lessons and I'd have'been glad to offer my suggestions —• but no. Walk she intended to do, and WALK &e did. And imagine my surprise when I plumed to ask how e,waVUYonne replied, "She's tjie bfrti ( fcp.u§e", a job she has |keji» ovw »gaUiSt Pick's wishes was "happy to *ee her walk Maces she never knew existed jefore. I intimated it might just old age depositing rust on her hinges. * * * The popcorn apple tree, out Easter tree, graces a table in the reception room. On it are perched two tiny birds, a bluebird and a canary. Added to there are hung various colored eggs and it is as gay as a fiower bedecked Easter bonnet. * * * April 19i4 — Fair association plans two day race meet for July — Blaze in Goedcrs and Stephenson bakery causes considerable .damage.

Henry Frohling was being visited by his wife, son and daughter of Emfnetsburg. The boy was outside playing with the Lindquist dog. The dog made a leap, put his teeth in the lad's arm so deeply it bled. The boy was taken to a doctor who gave him a tetanus shot and the dog wilLbe kept in confinement 10 daysT The family believes the dog was merely playful, or was retaliating for ah imagined rebuke.
