IF IT'S NEWS — WE WANT IT Connie's PEANUT TREATS No end to the ways to use those packaged refrigerator rolls! The other morning we arranged eight on a cookie sheet, spread each with peanut butter and honey, and sprinkled chopped peanuts on top. Ten minutes in the gas range, and they were glorious! SHARP IDEA Here's a practical idea from I Minnesota lady: She butters up her scissors, then cuts up marshmallows quick and slick. (Wonder why 1 never thought of that?) THIS SIDE UP Make an ordinary day "special"! Mail a gift of your favorite homemade cookies to a friend. Fruited drop cookies, moist bar cookies and honey cookies are the best "travelers." Cookies rich in shortening might become rancid or crumbly and crisp ones might break. MAYTIME MEMO A "stitch in time" can be such a saver for later... why not install gas air conditioning this month? You'll greet the first sizzling day in smiling comfort; feel better thru years of steamy Summers. Don't wait until blistering heat begins! Have • confab about comfort now, with your local gat comp a ny or g a i a p • pliant* dealer. CHOCOLATE TREAT This recipe bore a Nebraska postmark, but its- sender forgot to sign her name! Do try this Chocolate Cb,ip,Pie: Bake a regular 8-inch pie crust or graham cracker crust; set aside. Heat together in a double boiler 20 - marshmallows and fy cup milk. Cool. In separate bowl, whip 1 cup cream. Grate 2 ounces bitter baking chocolate into cream (or add one package chocolate chips). Fold into cooled marshmallow mixture. Pile into crust; chill in gas refrigerator. SLICK SHADE Ever tftink of putting your window shades or blinds upside down? (Saw them this way... works nicely!) You can enjoy the morning sunlight from the top half of the window, yet dress in privacy. Put shades up exactly the same, except upside down. (If the window has a sill, roller should be attached below the handle that opens the window). All you need is an extra long cord and a little knob or catch midway on window frame to tie cord each time you change shade levels. Or tack oilcloth to the shade roller, sew a hem and attach • long colored cord to match. MONOPOLY ON COMFORT Somebody asked "Is a gas company a monopoly?" No indeed! Natural gas hai strong competition from other fuels. If it wasn't America's best fuel buy, it Wouldn't be America's most popular fuel. Millions of home-owners and homemakers prefer natural gas! Your local gat company hM • right to be extra-proud of that record... and so does Northern Natural Gas Company, the* pipeline com- puty that*supplies fuel to c First Meeting, New County -. Historical Society On May 15 Public Invited To Attend At Court House By C. Ft. Schoby Sunday. May 15. 2:30 p.m. at the courthouse, has been set for the first annual meeting of the Kossuth county historical society. I would like to set forth a few reasons why I feel that the people of Kossuth county should support this society. KosKuth county is now well over 100 years old. The pioneer:; and early settlers are gone, and the sons and daughters of the early settlers are fast passing on. The history of the contributors of these people to Kossuth county and to the generation that at present enjoys this bountiful land should be preserved. With the passing of each generation we have 'been losing some of the history and records which should be passed on to posterity, and unless something is done now to gather together and preserve the early records of our county they will be gone forever. Early Passenger Service An historic event happened last January when the last passenger train passed through Algona. But how many of today know that Algona once had three railroads and that 12 passenger trains passed through every day? People then came to the county fair or to the circus on special trains from the surrounding communities There was then no more satisfactory service. How many know that? Ledyard was once the hay capital of the world. The area around Swea City was settled by a land company , .operating;from Minnesota: a grist mill Once stood many William J. Petersen years on Ihe banks of the east fork of the Des Moines river just north of Algona. A steamboat once operated on the river above the mill dam. Algona's famed ball team, the Brownies, was the pride of all Kossuth in this century's early years. Highway 18 was ' one of the first paved roads in the state. Algona once boasted three livery stables where fanners coming to town could get their teams in and out of the weather, also where doctors and other . travelers could hire rig' and team for errands in the countryside. ••.* i * m tm •*§ fomnoor V ,A>t::.v.*v:- m*" i&' .-:•/«.. Though only 186 carats in weight when discovered in India in the 16th century, the famous Kohinoor was a dazzling white diamond valued at $700,000. The original stone was cut in England. Until the 18th century, when small Brazilian deposits were discovered, almost all the world's diamonds came from India. Then in the I860's, the great African diamond fields were opened, and most of today's diamonds come from Africa. A Poorly Cut Diamond leaks' Light Diamonds may be CUT in any one of many shapes and forms. By far the most popular is the brilliant cut, round-girdled Diamond having 58 surfaces, or facets. These facets are in related angles to each other, and the 'fire 1 of the Diamond is directly related to the accuracy of these angles. A poorly cut Diamond does not have true fire because it 'leaks' light rays. It's wise to know exactly what you are getting in a Diamgnd purchase. SHARP'S JEWELRY Registered Jeweler — American Gem Society ALGONA, IQWA So diamond! is forever Ever try to explain horse and buggy travel or farming without tractors to grandchildren? My grandson, seeing a windmill, asked what it was for. 1 explained that you get water that way. In disbelief he replied, "Oh, Grandpa, you get water from a faucet!" Hard To Believe I am sure any reader could cite similar things that children grow up without understanding. They have no mental picture of timei earlier than their own. They need the information that a historical society can furnish. An appreciation' of our pre« sent standard of living ca'n only come when measured against conditions confronted by our ancestors. It was their struggle to improve their lot, and their refusal to accept conditions' as they found them that led to the development of Kossuth county as we have it today. The record of these efforts should be preserved along with the tools they used to conquer the raw prairies. This is not a job for the oldtimers but for us and our successors. They made history, and it is for the present generation to gather and pro- serve that history. For this purpose we need a live and active Kossuth county historical society, with ' active membership in' every town and township. This society should provide a place where records may be deposited for safekeeping, with personnel to care for the same — perhaps the courthouse, the Algona library, some city office, even the Call state park. Surely some such place could be found. What finer project for the many service clubs, women's clubs, 4-H, FFA, Farm Bureau and others than to get behind this movement and thereafter cooperate! Much of Kossuth's early history lias already been forgotten and records lost or destroyed because there was no one interested in preserving them. The people of this county should act now before that loss becomes greater. We owe this debt to those who made our early history; may we never get so busy with "today" that we fail to honor the "past!"
