FbUr hundred persons are employed there and it was of great interest to her see- irtg how that particular, department operates. » * » > If frou se6 Berl Muckey with the buttons of his vest missing, you will know he has burst them with pride over being a grea> 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. • * v ,* 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 ort in Fort Dodge, and v^ould relieve the situation. •:-••.-•••' •• .- ••'' * .. * • • ;*.' , It was sort of an old home week for Mr and Mrs G. D, ^Fundaiie, Little Rock, Ark., and Rev. and Mrs O. Leonard Nelson, t Clpquet, Minn., The Brundages ^..w^re parishohers of Rev. Nelson -when he was pasror of the First * Lutheran church here. The, families have been visitShg here, the * Nelsons being house guests of Mr ' --and Mrs E. B. Carlson, the.Brun- Jdages of the Lloyd Muckeys. 1 j often thinkf of .the story Rev; ;Nelr 'son told me abouit a. man in h|s :tellirig* hjrii ,ho"w much he ^enjoyed a^sermoh-he had listened ,tp the previous week. Flattered * fit the hews, he asked the man, "['"What was. .it, about?", for with so * much on his mind, it is f requent- " ly impossible to remember one's * sermon titles. The man answered, • -V'l don't remember, but it was ' sure good." • • * ' * * . .- • • , .... * I Have mentioned my African l^. yiolets before and I'm, going to , « do so again. They are the lovliest 11 ° things, you ever saw-pink . and ' " purple plants set in an oblong -planter, a perfect mass of blooms * that have continued week after * week to the astonishment of yisi- J-' tors, and my joy. Mrs Nick Fisch, Vwho gave them to me, stopped in Friday and declared I must have ; magic. No, it is she who is en* dowed with the green thumb, for she planted them and gave them I their start. But I am proud of ' them 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 ;" (he ages of 93 and almost 98 re',• ?pectivcly, and Oct. 2 celebrated ' Iheir seventieth wedding anni- ,'.. versary. Perhaps they will equal the record of Mrs Roberts, former " resident here, now in Minnesota. . who will soon be 105. •' The death of Claire Gilbert , Anderson makes mu think of hoi mother whom I knew. My first .\ acquaintance with them was years ago when invited to theii farm northeast of town to attcnc , an Episcopal Sunday school paitj • with Lucille Crose. I remembei the attractive rooms and the • many, many books. Each year • Mrs Gilbert and I would have a chat at the fair. She'd alwny. say, "I hope to meet you at the « fair again next year," And this continued for several years. The . Gilberts and Mrs Anderson were • staunch Episcopalians and Mrs Anderson will be missed. * * * • Mrs Bessie Jones has been visited by her sister Mrs Mary Bever, Milford. The women spent ^ a day at Dows, their former home, and saw the building _ where they attended school. It ".." has been made into a dwelling, but the fact that it is still in exis- . tence gives an allure to the old • readin', ritin' ana 'rithmetic. Methodists are happy that they • now own the entire half block " where the church stands. Final arrangements were decided in a • meeting Oct. 6. It is assumed the house standing there will be wrecked or moved off. - ¥ » Mr arid Mrs Russell Rent? have been on a five day vacation al .Woman Lake, Minn., with Mi •" and Mrs Sam Medin who live there severaj months of the year . JCenneth Medin and Deb Hal went along and all enjoyed good fishing. Vaunita told me abou' it whcri she was hew; Oct. 7. Shi said it was beautiful up there Rose Medin is another avid fish • erwomar: along with Lizzie Post Jlose Sigsbee and Hazel Lusby Hazel had a fine chance to work pf f some of the "steam" wheh^ sh> . ways on ;.a ihsi/a !couj>le 'of months ago. She mentioned the f location, of the angling \,spot b'ut 1 didn't listen aUc'ntively enough to rememoel the efcdct' place. • * * * The.'death, of.Mrs. f ilia McCall at Seattle, Wash, takes away another-old time, Algonan, I belieVe her husband's name was Jay and years ago they ran the North- i western hotel which then stood ok, the corner oi 'Phillies anb 1 State streets. It was moved a short distance west when Frank Vera 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 white poodles on leashes. I was in her home several years ago when she .had mbvea to her-dwelling at the corner of Wooster and State streets.
