7 Tidbits by Evelyn thi* fo being iiafried that ,w ei . taring day, Aug. 4> and besides being noted for, that, it brings to mind _the date on which my great-aunt, Bmmaline Heckart died in Zephyr Hills, Fla., and on the bright side, my cousin, Melvm Henderson's daughter Gayle's birthday and the second anniversary of little Louise Black. * * * Futthef mention bf the day* I was talking with Helen Anderson who said she had received a card from Ruth MoMahon who, ' With her husband Roy vacationed, in Canada. ' I always think of Canadh as being bitterly cold in winter and delightfully cool in summer. This is riot true, the last part at least, for Ruth, said they had been caught in a heat wave. ** •*.,.* More conversation, topic heat, with Florence Beardsley who told me her sons Junior and Walter are here with their families. Junior lives in Austin, Texas, and Walter at Midland, same state. I said, "We're dishing out just the kind they give us. This is weather a "la Houston." * * * A card from Edna Siebbins Who with her sister Margarel Winslow Ross, was here to see me a few weeks ago and both v/ent -from here to Minneapolis to visit 'relatives, says "I leave -Aug. 21 for Pomona, Calif." (her home) Mrs Dean Jergenson called me the other day to give me the greetings Jim and Carol Wychor sent from. Muskegon, Mich, where they moved last winter The Jergensons have been visit ing them and report they like the city very much. Little Jimmie is a big boy — tips the scales a 30 pounds and he isn't a yea: old. Swimming in Lake Michi ,gan was a source of pleasure, am a trip to Chicago highlighted th . > Jergenson's vacation. They did a lot of sight-seeing, and Chicagi js just the place to do it. Th ihildren, Douglas and Barbara were along and received quite an education the pleasant way. * * * Betty Holt, R.N. at Good Sam- ritan, gave herself a shower of ce water the other day. She lipped arid in the fall ;the water prayed up into her face. No in- uries, just chagrin and a little dampness. • * * * Myrna Otlbft and her son Web drove to Des Moines Saturday to meet her brother Herliss Minkler and his daughter Elena, Biloxi, Elena, 13, is going to spend he rest of the 4erliss is leaving "or (Baltimore, M< summer here, in a few days where he -will with no results. * * « ¥0 thi «« of names of visitors to the grotto at West Betid can be added Mrs John Nelsoft and children, of Ryan, Saskatchewan, Can., end Mr and Mrs Roger Hayes, Marshalltown who have been guests of Mr and Mrs G. W. Naylor. They, were greatly .impressed With the place and are certain Canada has no such competitive creation. * » W 'i Another / }eb, not of ih* hoi day variety, but nevertheless being done cheerfully, was when the ladies of St. Thomas Episcopal church went into action and aoard a mercha'nt ship and will je gone for some time. He is with the steward department. It s seventeen years since ho and nis sisters have been together. It ,s quite an interesting story, and typical, in a way. The father was. what shall I call it, inflicted or obessed, with wander-lust. The | mother grew tired of going from place to place With three small children, Myrna, Madeline and Herliss, and there came a parting of ways. One little girl was made a welcome addition to a home of her aunt and uncle in Whittemore. This was Madeline and the relatives were Forest land Addie Driver. Myrna was chosen by her aunt Maude Blake and May kept Herliss at her mother's home as he was such a little fellow. All went well. The girls had good homes and the mother- saw them as often as possible, also the father. Time has passed and Web died several years ago. May made her home here awhile and finally went to live in California. She died a few years ago but the sad part of the story is that Herliss was at sea and could not be reached in time to see his mother before her passing. And now after 'all these years, what joy. it must be to get together with his sisters. * * * I hope the little black dog thai joined OVtrsi Teeter and me on the front porch the other night was able to find his way back to his family. He is a cute little fellow and loves the women. At leasl he showed asffection for_ us and When*men came up the walk, he'd cower under a chair till he figured the danger had passed. We started with all the dog names we could think of from A to Z attacked several bushels of vegetables. Yeah, that's the truth. They did it in preparation for the Kossuth County fair coming up soon and for the base of vegetable soup they will serve. Now don't be aghast. I was till Ruth Raney explained the vegetables will be prepared and plac- deep freeze till time Richard Ristau Is Wed To Of Algona Spencer Girl' ed in the or use. Our little 104 year old Mrs Roberts, mother of the late Mrs'Min- nie Jones and the lafe Mrs Martha Andrews left us Tuesday U make her home with Mrs Mary Stainbrook at W'hittemore. Here she will be able to be out o doors. Unfortunately the onlj available room for her here when she came was on'thirc floor. It is a problem to have access to the outdoors when one has reached her years and for anyone for,that matter, who is not vigorous. • * * # When I read of the barn fire on the farm south of Irvington, I felt quite certain it must have been on what I knew as the Omar Clcary farm owned by the Max Herbsts, parents of Joel and the late Theo. That farm is dear to the hearts of a group of my friends and myself for it was on that farm that we camped threu different summers in years gone by. I described the farm to Olive Herb&t just to be sure, and it tallies completely. Jessie Smith lived there with the Ctearys, her uncle and aunt and we saw her at the farm house quite frequent- When I had some tomato juice served to me the other evening Katherine Voigt had been here to sfie her father John Prew and Karen called on me Ihn >ther clny I didn't recognize him —he hns changed a lot, has put on a little weight,,though he still hns n sveltb figure.

We even got a discussion of circuses and parades, almost tearful at the passing of such fine entertainment. Added to the tears jw;as .disgust at the recent advertising of old fashioned parade which turned out to be a truck of caged animals, hidden .from view a band of not much consequence and all that established it as old fashioned parade was an honest- to-goodness caliope.
