Leroy Pillman officiated nt the double ring ceremony in Uie> presence of 150 guests. The bride was escorted to the nltar by her brother, Arlon Johnson, Burl. Jo Ann Johnson served her sis- tor as tnaid of honor. Best man was the bridegroom's brother, "Oh, de&r, I kept him waiting until Mr. Bigby cooled off; but now HE'S angry about being kept waiting i" fore spending- any money. —' Weather as you knew has broken all records for heat and dryness." *, * • ' *'A card from Mrs Sarah.Smith came from Lockppr.t, 111., whero she has been visiting since early May with her daughter and family. * * * A litile story about the father of a Well known business man here, but I won't mention names. The father is in a, hospital and recently . the minister called and asked if a 'word of prayer may be said. This • old gentleman, usually sunny, must, have felt a little crotchety that day for he answered, "Well all right, if you^ think it will do any good." '• .'' • * ''*'.' * . We don't have Whistler's mother over here at Good Samaritan but we do have Whistler himself, a mild old man past 83 who whistles by< the hour, not loudly, nor tunefully to be truthful.

' ; * * * I've never been particularly interested. -in stamp collection? but when Lucille Crose Anderzen writes to me. about hers and the activities connected therewith, I'd like to see it and others she mentioned. Even more ot interest to me was her mention of the International Pancake • House .where 30 different kinds are served. She says they are even better than she can make, but I don':t believe it. I'll take a chance bn her cookery every time..: And imagine six different kinds of syrup. Umrin-m . ••* * '* Ever see a sweet pea tree? Well I did. It is in the yard west adjoining ;the Jim Burns place on Fair street. It is beautiful. Ha'i purple blossoms, and best of all. blooms more than once in the season. I thought the magnolia trees and tulip trees at Davenport were pretty, but in a contest. I'd vote for the sweet pea tree. -•, # * « Years ago I knew a child, Eleanor Cole, niece of Mattic Thorpe. A little blonde ' with big blue- eyes. I am' aware how the yeans have fled when I am told about, her present status, a mother of a son 17 and three other children ranging down to five. She and the 17 year old sop and little girl, 5, have been visiting the Thorpes and other relatives. Mattie says Eleanor is just as attractive a matron as she was child.
