Winddlfr cleaners at* not the only men whose occupa- . iloii is haiardous. We recently read of & maaailne edltot *ho dropped eleven stories ..into a wastebatkftt. A teacher placed her hat in front of the class, and told them to write an essay on it. For several, moments nothing was heard shabby?" . % "ThMe'6 nothing nevf Hinder Ihe sun^ said old Solomon. Btit h§< hadn't s*en the bid lifen* "kitchens i id • live * in ?f KOSSUM COUNTY around which today's builders ate, fashioning the modern American home, according to the American-Gas , Associa- hbtt. Your Grandma Would be light at home 'in it. She'd need a day, maybe to gel used to, its sparkling new labor. saving appliances, . but its spaciousness, charm and "livableness" she'd take as a mat* ter of course.. , . The big advantage in being a wolf is, you Can Whistle while you work. ' • ' ' ' A young mother says -that after putting her two children . ^to bed one night, she changed into a droopy blouse' and an old pair of slacks and proceeded to wash her hair. All, during the shampoo she could hear the children growing 1 . wilder and noisier. Finishing V as hurriedly as possible, she 'wrapped a large towel around 'her head, stormed into~ their room and put them back to • bed with a stern warning to stay there. As/she left, she heard her two-year-old say • to his sister in a trembling ^yqice: "Who was thai?'< > A man walked into a small railroad 'station and asked the ticket agent, "Is the New York train on time?" "Yep!" said the agent. TJhe man sat down on the platform bench' and waited . . . one hour, passed. Then two and then three. Finally the train pulled into the station. "I thought: you said the train was on time," he said accusingly. "Son," said the ticket agen|t softly. "I ain't paid,to sit here and knock the railroad." '. fin Grandma's time, the kitchen was the heart of'the home. Most , of-the family's meals were eaten there, and family life tended to center around the big kitchen table and. the black finished, silver trimmed and intricately orna^ mented gas range •—- a. real symbol of the "good old days." Today's builders use the riew gas appliances to pace the trend to subtle color schemes. Appliances so orosaic .in function as *gas furnaces and incinerators are now -. available in a variety of colors. And .today's gas ranges and refrigerators are gala with decorator tints. ..;.-. Little Boy: "Why did Noah take two of each kind of animal in the ark?" Little; Girl: "Because he didn't believe the story about 'the stork either." ; A young man, trying to impress his date in a restaurant, told the waiter: "Bring us two orders of Giuseppe Martinelli." ... "I'm sorry I cannot do so," said the waiter. "But it's on the menu," declared the young man. "True," said the waiter. "But that's the proprietor, and he's out of town." Grandma' kitchen is back again — but with a difference! Today's housewife/like Grandma, can. be with her family and guests while she's preparing her meals. And today as 'in Grandma's time, the kitchen "is the homiest, most livable, most-lived-in room in the house. But the homemaker today, unlike Grandma, has a legion of faithful gas kitchen servants ready to do her work with a touch of her uncalloused fingers. And at the end of her day she's still fresh and eager/ for an evening of fun and relaxation. ;, * . '• * •'•'••*.-•:•• * "' "The paratroopers were aloft for their first jump. Everything went off in perfect or. der, until the last man came forward to jump. "Hold itl" shouted his commanding officer, "You're not wearing your parachutel" "Oh, that's all right, sir," replied the recruit., "We're just practicing aren't we? "Oh, what a funny looking cow," the chic young thing from the city told the farmer. "But why hasn't it any horns?" "There are many reasons," the farmer replied, "why a cow does "not have horns. Some do not have •them until late in life. Others are dehorned, while still other breeds are not. supposed to have horns. This cow does not have horns because it is a horse." * * * " Only One Game Sunday, Kossuth Baseball Loop Ayrshire bumped Humboldt, 3*2, in the only, game in the Kossuth County Baseball League Sunday, Wet grounds postponed all other actidn; Algona will travel to St. Joet Humboldt ^to' Whittemore; West Bend to Ayrshire; and Mallard to Lone Rock for games this Sunday. , Standings W West Bend —:._2 Ayrshire ~__.._2 Algona —, „.__!
