T (10.) Uf»p*f DM Molnm Tuesday, Oct. 18, 1960 Oh, inii perfect weatheri Everybody talks of McGregor arid .the Mississippi area, all wanting tb head that" way where the trees are so beautiful. I'm glad to kftdw there are so many kindred sprits. « * » Mr ana Mrs Hugh Colwsll are back from a trip to the Ozarks. Enroiite home they stopped in Kansas City and were shown through the distributing center of the company for which fc«-s Colwell has had an agency the past 11 years. Four hundred persons are employed there and it was of great interest to her sec- ing how that particular department operates. * * * If you see Bert Muckey with the buttons of his vest missing, you will know he lias burst them with pride over being a great- grandfather. A son. Timothy James, was born Sept. 3 to Mr and Mrs James Williams of Minneapolis. The new mother is the former Susan McConnell. * «• * Confusion reigns in the postal department at Fort Dodge-Herbert Deal and Hubert Deal, no relation, are constantly being handed the wrong mail. Hubert Deal is a son of Mrs Celia Deal and prefers being called "Pete". A good idea, if carried on in Fort Dodge, and would relieve the situation. * « * It was sort of an old home week for Mr and Mrs G. D. Brlmdage, Little Rock, Ark., and Rev. and Mrs O. Leonard Nelson, Cloquet, Minn. The Brundagcs .were parishoners of Rev Nelson -when he was pasror of the First .{Lutheran church here. The fami- tlies have been visiting here, the ^Nelsons being house guests of Mr ,f'and Mrs E. B. Carlson, the Brun- ^dages of the Lloyd Muckeys. I •often think of the story Rev. Nel^son told me about a man in his •^church telling him how much he •enjoyed a sermon he had listened *to the previous week. Flattered •at the news, he asked the man. ^"What was it about?" for with so -much ort. his mind, it is frequently impossible to remember one's ^sermon titles. The man answered, •»•"! don't remember, but it was •sure good." • * * « *• I have mentioned my African 'violets before and I'm going io *do so agairi.-They are the lovliest • things you; ever saw-pink and 4 *purple plants set in an oblong •splanter,/a perfect mass of blooms 'that have continued week after '•week to the astonishment of visi- -•tors, and my joy. Mrs Nick Fisch. ••"'who gave them to me, stopped in fc Friday and declared I must have • magic. No, it is she who is en- with the green thumb, for planted them and gave them •their start. But I am proud of Jthem and am cherishing them ••tenderly. I think Raymond Gilbert can look forward to a long life, if his ancestry has anything to do with it. His grandparents, Mr and Mrs Andrew Anderson have reached lhe ages of 93 and almost 98 respectively, and Oct. 2 celebrated Iheir seventieth wedding anniversary. Perhaps they will equal ihe record of Mrs Roberts, former resident here, now in Minnesota. who will soon be 105. • ins, a couple of months ago. Slie mentioned the location of the angling spot but I didn't listen attentively enough to rctiK'niuir the exact place. * * . « ' The death of Mrs Tilla McCall at Seattle, Wash, takes away another old lime Algonan. I believe her husband's name was Jav nnci years ago they ran the North- western hotel which then $itood on the corner of Phillips and State streets. It was moved a short distance west when Frank Vora purchased it and made- it into an apartment house. Mrs McCall was a tiny woman, active and quick of step and she went down the streets many times with little while poodles on leashes. I was in her home several years ago when she had moved to her dwelling at the corner of Woosler and State streets. Mrs Agnes Laidley had an apartment there and mother and I were joining Marg Laidley Dahl and we were having supper and a card game together. Mrs McCnl) as'kecl us in her apartment to soe some antiques. * » • Back in 1944, art October wind sUum did much damage in l.a- kota. Federal Agent G. A. Hum- son states that all booze now sold is bad. (This was ni prohibition days. I think the same idea,.-til! holds, which gives you my idea of liquors). Ralph Morgan dangerously hurt in gravel pit near Algona. Deputy Sheriff Hovrj married to Vivian Eastman at Blue Earth, Minn. * • How true— "A falsie salesman calls man.' himself , the fuller bust This could happen. "The trouble with political jd'.i's is that they often Ret elected to office." * * • The Yanks don't have much of a following over here. Most of us are for tho underdog Pirates, but Casper Thilgcs remains loyal to the Yanks. There is a lot of verbal .betting, buf so far I've seen no exchange of legal tender. * * • I've seen the exterior of the Surf ballroom at Clear Lake do/ens of times but have never seen the interior, which is said to be beautifully decorated, so I was interested when Donna Reefer did -recently what I've often yearned to do—danced there. With her were Helen Stone and her brothers, Harold and Clyde Stone of Brill and another brother, Earl Slone, who is home on leave from Lackland Field, Texas. I read it was 91 degrees in Texas a few days ago so Earl no doubt is enjoying our perfect fall weather. My relatives, the Melvin Hendersons, who . were here a year ago, wish they were back. •By the lirne this reaches the Rock to Rockford, 111. to attend papers, Mtbel Hutzell, Ethel Gil-1 the open House Observance of les, Esther Benson, Lizzie Post j the 9f»1.h birthday anniversary of ..'._ -i' * ; 11 i i_ J ..* _.._ _i_.__ _» I ft*. rt _ i . _i ...... ..._.1 TV *.. _ i i. and I will .have had our dny at Fairmont, Minn. r.Irs Gillos will stop at Swcn City, Lizzie and I will be at Maggie Pamikuk's tun I the others will visit friends.

The business was established in October of 1958. Bronson's is called Service because ihe business has a genuine service to off :r every customer. "Tell us what you want done, and we'll do it!" says C. R. Bronson, head of the corporation. This is not ' a contract yard. Bronson's work through local contractors ;and supply the materials for work^to be'done. i C. R. Bronson started in the lumber business in Waterloo in 1935, at that time just a young man whose job was unloading cement. It was then he decided to someday have a yard of his own.
