I: you liked '.'The Egg arid'1" you'l enjoy this. . . Born to Stallibn and Lillie Shetland Pony, a son Gremlin July 29 at the Randall Clark [arm. Lillie became the property of Sarah and Linda a. few years ago. The girls out-grew Lillie and she was passed on to Matthew, 10. He ndw becomes possessor also of the colt and what happens to Lillie I don't know. Probably kept as a pet as she become one of the family over the.years. Sarah reports the name Gremlin was chosen because he is such a little fellow. Now this isn't a story that makes one feel good but since it happened on that very hot day. Wednesday, I m'ay have--looked as old as I felt, which was pretty old but not as far along in years as one of the residents here men- tioned.X I think the old man's eyes are. not too good, and believe he had some other per' son in mind or else he was ribbing me, logical solution. At any rate, here's the tale. He stopped - in my doorway and started a con, versation which in it's course ran -. something like this. (I was to • blame because I had mentionec ' a birthday .coming up , quite soon) "How old are you"? "You guess." (hoping for flattery, o course.) He, "Oh, 89?" "No, 98' •I answered, perhaps-with a little heat. "Oh my, I'd never dream --you were that old." Well, >I con fessed to my actual years and he said as seriously, "Well, I didn' miss it far." ; Oh no — not far • only by twenty-some years, but | maybe that isn't far. Years pass I ' so Vapidly. Maybe he was just having fun, but,he sure looked serious and I've examined myself in the mirror. Honesty compels ' me to say I do not particularly , enjoy my reflection, but still -I don't look eighty-plus! Tho ' moral v pf this story is, "Never ask anyone to GUESS your age. Come right out with it — don't be coy." * <• » , ' A letter from Mrs Herman Bleich on behalf of herself, mother two sisters and two brothers and a daughter,' Mrs Morton Hoffman, St. Louis, Mo., she said was prompted by having read an ' item I Wrote some time ago about • the theft of flowers from tho Cady cemetery lot and gas frcmv cars' at G.

This is one of the finest traditions of the American and Iowa rural scene, and we are proud to be able to take a part in the Kossuth County Fair. FELCO FEEDS are also becoming a "tradition" in the Iowa rural scene, since the establishment years ago of the first "home-owned elevators." We (see below) are among many fine community elevators founded, financed and built by local farm citizens to serve their needs in their communities. These elevators serve the people who own them . . . dividends are ear-marked for the people who built them and have continued to support them, and these elevators are community landmarks and often among the most important business enterprises in the areas they serve. They pay taxes, support local community activities, provide local payrolls and take part in many other accomplishments. Your "home-owned elevators" are proud of their connection with FELCO FEEDS and their ability to provide you With the finest in qualit/ feed and seed.products, and they are happy, to lend a helping hand in support of the 101st Kossuth County Fair.
