A trip to the top of the Empire ' State building, a ferry ride •around the Statue of Liberty, • • seeing the ships In port over . the July 4th holiday, and best of a ».. according to Mrs. Holcotnb, - seeing "the Milsic Man." They visited Mr, Holcomb's brothers, Herbert, and Ronald and families and sister, Mrs. Shields. ' . * • * A card from Alice Ditsworth • pictured the Immanuel Lutheran Home at Kalispell, Mont, A modern church amid tonnected living quarters, a la the Pilgrim homo at Grinnell. She wrote, "It is nice to be with Margaret and '• family.' Dicks are coming from TemiJe, Ariz.,) next week." (Margaret and Dick are her daughter and son.) '...-;' ' "* * * ' i I had an. inquiry ihe, of her day from a woman who has followed WHO radio programs for sometime. She asked me' if I knew what had become of the .singer, Zelda. I don't know -. I never cared .for her nor Slim, but some .admierer might let me know and I'll pass the news along.'i still miss the "Song .Fellows" That was one • of the best programs WHO ever had. And what about pianist Bill Austin? I used to enjoy him so much. * * • Don and Eileen Orion and their children Connie and Michael have been here from Cave Junction, Ore.," visiting Don's mother and brothers, Mrs. Myrna Orton, Webster and Dennis. \Eileen has completed her degree 'at Bemidji, Minn. ,Both Mr.' and Mrs. Orton are teachers. * * . * . Back in 1923-27 Margaret Williams was employed at the telephone office, and made, her home with Mr. and Mrs. George Lee. Her parents were Noreen and John Williams. She is now Mrs. Virgil Turner, Brookings, S.D., and with her husband and sister, Mrs. Viola Teig, Minneapolis, has been visiting the Lees. She was interested ,in /looking up old friends, among them Elizabeth Wolfe who was employed at the phone office with her. some telephoning, among them a call to Nell Potter. She retnenv bered the Tilton place and re. called having heard about dady and Johnson having a crew Ot men there putting up hay. Satisfied that she knew what she .was talking about, 1 still wanted corroboration, so I called Daisy Cook who was a Tilton girl*and she verified what Mrs. Potter had said, description etc. And bless me! I had been at the farm several years ago, had Coffee there one afternoon and you'll never guess who owns the farm noto. It is the Olson place, .straight south of Hobarton, Just as Mrs. Potter and Mrs. Cook had said, and south of the ; Ralph Morgan farm. A new house was built some time ago, and the fine blacktop -Is a far cry from the country horse and buggy road I remember. Jufii t6I ihe teeorct — jhl* twenty-first day of July, 1 am without stockings, sure 'proof, it is a hot day. So far as I am' concerned, it has been a pleasant summer'. Cool, which I like, but probably we'll be m for hot days from now on. It is now good lake Weather and Mr. and Mrs, Albert Reid thought so, too. They left today for their cottage oh north Spirit Lake. . Headlines of 1924 - Children of Mrs. David King help her cele- y brate her 90th birthday.

The injury kept me from a trip to Fairmont to see Maggie and Clarence Pannkuk. My friends ore kind enough to merely delay the trip till I am ship-shape again, and we hope it will be a little cooler. "Tis said "misery likes company," and I've had plenty of it. Clarence had hurt his thumb on a car door and was unable to drive, their son-in-law had a toe cut off in a power mower and is just released from the hospital, his wife Thelma turned her ankle, and the Pannkuk's niece Mildred Taylor Fancher is hospitalized for some skin ailment.

With the September meeting, the 50th year of the organization will have been started. Mrs. Ethel Gardner and Mrs. Lela Gardner are the only charter members living. A few years ago Mabel Livingston took me to Fairmont to visit my friends, Maggie and Clarence PannkuK. It was still rather early when we reached Kossuth county and Mabel said "Let's finish the day. Where would you like to go?" I said, "Let's go doWn in Cresco township. I'd like to see the pjaces where my father put up hay years ago." I had in mind the Tilton and Potter farms as I remembered the hay land was close to them. \te found the Potter farm, then occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Will Potter, later in possession of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Potter, and though I was only five years old when we "camped" near by, I recognized the place at once. But the Tilton farm eluded me and we came home without finding it. * * • On a recent Sunday Ruth and Glen Raney took me for another ride and we decided to try again at finding the Tilton Pla c P- \ still couldn't see any place that looked like the one I remembered Upon reaching home I did Algeria's Modern Furniture Store JUSTROM'S/ Our Direct-From-Factoiies Purchases of, Furniture, and Home Furnishirigs SAVES YOU MONEY B JUST ROM'S Low Down Payments — Free Delivery < ' CARPET Headquarters OF NORTH CENTRAL IOWA Carrying ln*Stock The Most Complete Selection of Carpeting In This Area — Displays at Your Fingertips .
