February 12, 1959 February 12, 1959 CCOMR From Hers & There l ' Methodists At Swea City Talk A. minister Bftd his Wife .wetfi discussing low flten who were In the hews, '. "Y«," said ihe minfelear, "I knew ihem both as boys, one was a clever, handsome fellow; the other a steady, hard* worker. The clever one was left behind in the race, but the hard-worker * . . » . well, he died and left a half million dollars to his widow, li's a great moral lesson." /'Yes," jreplied his wife., with a smile, "it is. I heard this morning that the ciever one is, going to matry the widow." , An Englishman shared the train-carriage .with? an ;elderly Scot. At eacht stop, the old man rushed put, fan down the platform, then rushed , back,'panting. The curious; Englander finally asked; why. "Well,"; said the Scot, "I saw, a specialist in London about my heari. He says I might drop dead, anytime so I'm booking from station to station." Any ordinary flat-bottomed utensil becomes an automatic appliance with foods cooked ' to perfection every time on the- new gas ranges with the "burner-with«a-brain." Best of all,, burning, scorching, boiling over, under cooking and over cooking, becomes a thing of the past. /;''••.'. The cook, fresh 1 from the Oz^* firks, was discussing her daugh/ ter!s behavior: "I found out she ain't sick at all. It's just a case of the pokin' grits. That no-count man she wanted to marry"!, left town with another woman, and "my 'daughter's madder than;mad, pokin! her. chin out and grittin her teeth; Ain't nothing the .matter with her but the pokin' grits." It was a cold November day and' the football stadium was jammed. High up in the stands an alumnus; more than slightly ^ - inebriated, kept standing up and calling. "Hey, Gus," and, each lime a "man ""down in the third row would',, ceremoniously stand up and doff hisJial. . AfiWfViianfr calls of "Hey, Gus," the gentleman in the third row shouted in a thick voice, "Now quit yelling at me! I'm tired of standing up, and besides my name isn't Gus." The fortunate owner of a laundry dryer finds that her tow-. R!S don't have to be ironed at all. Their texture is smooth instead of erumply and crooked from line-drying. All corduroys, chin- ille bedspreads, bathmats and most underwear needs only a gentle smoothing with the hand. * * * * Social tact is making your • company feel at home, even though you wish: they were. GAS is constantly available. Set the thermostat for comfortably regulated temperatures' in the house. GAS does the rest — for the entire heating season. Ordering and,waiting for fuel,become a thing of the past. See your local ' gas company, the North Central Public Service Co. in Algona for details on installing : wondferful natural GAS in your home. A meek little man in a restaurant timidly touched the arm of a man 1 putting on a coat. "Excuse',me." he said, "but do YOU happen fo be Mr Smith of Newcastle?" "Noi I'm "noil" the man answered impatiently. ' "Oh-er-well, ."stammered the first man., "you see, I am, and that's his overcoat you're putting -on." .-•...' ^ Jones had got a job at last. After months 'of unemployment he was hired by an. antique dealer. The very first morning the boss came in and saw him: standing idle in the shoo. „ , "Go up to the storeroom," he ordered, "and get me a Greek urn for. Mr Blank, and be quick about it" Jones rushe4 upstair and called to one of the packers, "Hi, pal* what's a Greek urn?" "I don't know," was the renly. "Depends on the job he's got." ~W ^tf J^ «4f The man at the bar finished his second glass of beer and turned to ask the manager -of the place^'How many keqs of beer do you sell here/ m "week?" "Thirtv-fiye," the manager answered with, pride* . t . "Well. I ve just thought of a way you can sell ?0." The manager was startled. "How?" "it's simple, Fill up the glasses," * * ,* * . . ,_.. _ City — The official board of the Methodist Church met Jan. 26 at the Komfe of Mr* and,Mrs Harold Jones. Mrs S. H.
