Upper DM Molnt*-3 DEATH TRAP!

It has been 10 years since they have seen each other. Back in 1950 Mrs. Gronwall made a visit to her . homeland, Sweden, and visited her relatives in Brooklyn at the time. * * * There is a lovely spot I never knew existed till Glen and Ruth Raney took Mrs. -Gilles a'nd me for a ride Sunday evening. It' is just my ideal of a picnic spot, shady woods, a pretty river and a dam. It's a good fishing spot, so Glen said, and whe"n we got there, sure enough, there were a few fishermen. They must haye had much stamina though, for the mosquitoes were there in flocks. We closed the car windows but couldn't hold out against them for long as it was a sultry day. But we drank in the beauty in large gulps. The drive back was hasty as the car had gone a bit tempermental and Glen thought it wise to get closer to civilization. Once on Vie highway, the car hummed along smoothly and normally. Must have thought the area too rustic to suit it's modernity. It's a perfect place for that much toated "bread, wine and Thou under the boughs," All we could think of was fried chicken and root beer, Mrs. Martha Adams was recently 'visited by her cousin Frank Deoring and his wife, of Los Angeles. When he came to the door, Mrs. Adams was' prepared to give him the brush off thinking he was an agent. And it is no wonder she did not recognize him; it has been 62 years since they have seen each other. Mr. Deoring is a mechanic. His father was the late August Deoring antj ran a foundry near tlie Northwestern depot years ag9-.., . * * - * The family of Mrs. Sarah Smith is practically falling apart. She has been visited by her daughters Mrs. Harry Kranz. Lockport, 111., and Mrs. Vivian Olson, Wellington, 111. Mrs. Kranz expects to have surgery when she returns home , Mrs. Olson is on crutches having suffered a broken leg some time ago and June 26, another daughter, Royetta (Mrs. Lloyd Steinman) fell from the back porch, suffered a broken left arm and cracked ribs. Mrs. Olson's fall was from an unrailed. porch too, and Mrs. Smith advises them to have railings put up at once. * * * More July 1924 items — over 10,000 people attended the program July Fourth.
