•» • * "* Tidbits Bay was & holiday for rne, too, and the typewriter was idle. Callers during the week were Mrs Maude Nelson and her twin' daughters, Berntee Schoby and Vernice Cash, they also called on Olive Thompson. Claren ?£ "Hayes, Rodman, was in the neighborhood selling vpgetable- he had raised, so he dropped* in to see me a short time. For 85, he is remarkably active and has an alert mind. He .loves to talk about old times. * * * Wednesday. Sept, 9. A chai with Lizzie Post who informed me she has canned 110 quarts of pickles, 25 quarts of tomatoes, 11 pints of pepper hash, all from the 50 feet of garden back of my home. Some of the land is given over to flowers and with the big bird house hugging the garden, i\ is amazing the amount of vegetables she got from the plot. Her nsters are lovely too, she says'.. Nice big blooms. Well, leave it to Lizzie. Anything she starts to do, she does with a bang. Defeat isn't in her vo'cbulary. ~. • '* * , ,- • '-• • A bit of bad newfe was told me ab6ut Vic Lowe, cousin "of my, Very good friend,.,the , late.,Ethel "Shortie" .Lowe;- Vicf,his"molh- er, Rachael, and •brother; 1 Harry lived here years ago,.'! Vic' is seriously si'ck in Ashbury-Methodist hospital at Minneapolis. He ?nd his wife operated a cafe at Mankato many years and thia year have managed the country club. Years ago the-Lowes lived neighbor • to'ous. and I recall so well the morning she sent me French -toast with a sugar 'syrup flavored With lemon. It was delicious and tasted particularly good as I sad .been in, the"Tres; byterian hospital, Chicago, several weeks and certainly had. been given no French toast there.' Mrs Lowe was a notoriously good cook. * * * Thursday, 'a« continued celebration Of myl birthday with :a luncheon at Velma Hagg'si Other jilcsts were ' Evalyn .McDqugall, Vlabel Hutzell, Esther Benson, Mrs Gilles and Lizzie Post. Among the many good things Were chicken and home madS noodles, tossed salad (es-^eeialty for me, both foods) "Baylor Hagg" rolls,, ahd birthday - cake made by Lizzie, There tykte many other things too numerous to mention. "Baylor-Hagg" rolls are called that because -'twas from Mrs Baylor's recipfe ,,Velm«( made them, /We .went on 'a toUf of inspection of .the house artd found it very much Ho our liking. An apartment has ibeen made ufc stairs and the remodeling of the loWefJpart was aii' added balh» room and changed Ititeherij • *. « * Liizle Vas of course busy .at fancy work. This was a clever thing she was working on an,d I am going to get the pattern. She has in the past given me many patterns and she runs onto very cute and clever things. Several yeans .ago she gave me a bootee pattern. It sounds fantastic but to date I have made 290 pairs. Gave 22 pairs as gifts, and sold the rest, ,How's that for a record? Harlan Miller has mentioned self-serve dime stores in his column a few times — towns that have recently ^started (Operating that way. Shucks — we have had them h£re fdr some time. ''.'•-.*, » For* , many years Zelba Brown Was an' active member of the Royal Neighbor lodge here' ahd she is missed by her friends since she moved .to. Fort Dodge, Thursday a group of members drove to Fort Dodge 'and met her ., there for dinner. They were Bernadine Allen, Esther 'Benson,' Pat Cook, Mts Walter Adams, Audrey Frye, Selma Godfredsort, Atha Ha'rdgrove, Bea Lynk, Elizabeth Post, Mrs RoScoe Shipler and Nellie Van Allen. After the dinner, they spent the evening at Zelba's home. ; * * * " Friday — We had so much to eat at. my party and had as des- ,sert delicious apple dumplihigs with gobs o'f el-earn. So instead of bringing all the cake ''here, I had the 'women cut portions for themselves and , the respective share for me so 1 had Esther and Mrs Gilles tyomfc here for ctke fittd ice cit-am. ,Just before fctftfle f 1 Was getting news find,talked with Maude Donveiler who as her cofttributSrin told me Mr ami -Mrs Dan Habegcr tino daughter: Margaret, • Mrs A. J Afmont, were here from Long Beach, Calif.* and had called on them. A few moments later they stopped at my door to ask about Mr Sharlock whom they wanted to call on. 1 was recognized at once though ft has 'been 25 years since I've 1 seen them. We compared lages and it seems incredible that Mr 'Habeger is 89 and Mrs.H. is 82. .They will celebrate their 82nd wedding, anniversary Sept.,22. They are so vigorous and well, and could pass for many years less. Margaret looks wonderful too. She- said her son Dwight Hargreaves, 24. was recently married. The party had made the trip to Omaha by air, hired a car there and drove up here. They will return to Omaha and will fly back. I believe Mrs H. said this is the J4th trip they have made here via plane. Quite .a record, and an enviable one. ; V * ».'• . I had.a phone call from Mrs John'Spencer'who is now working here. She hopes to gut in and actually meet me.. We have had many phone conversations and I love her Australian dialect. She sounds much like her lata mother-in-law Emily Spencer whom I loved to hear. Mrs S. is on the night hours-but I hope we can meet soon. She is so friendly and nice. We met a night or two later when she came to check on a bell'she thought was mine. f * * , What I predicted has happened. The Lindquist's dog Frisky was, hit by a car and suffered a back injury which has left him a little stiff. This will go away in a few days probably. I have mentioned before how well he and the pet cat play together. In fact Frisky has adopted the cat to the extent he won't allow anyone to pick her up. He flies to her rescue 'as though he would be in danger if petted by ayone. * * * : Dr. and Mrs P. O. Dorweller were in the Yellowstone vicinity when the quake occurred a lew Virginia Citv and to Boise, Id>., 'About 22 miles from Yellowsftfite 1 they noticed something wrtmfe .•** the ground jarred and there :Wfct* rumblings that they attrMjttiSa to a storm coming or a train Maude say* she likes to be in on anything O'f interest, but this time they were as close a they wanted to be, ,She was sat isfied to bo just on tin; fringe. * » • * Robbie Hutchins has written his parents, Mr and Mrs Eugene Itutchins from MafyVille, Mo., that ho is enjoying college life He has met several fine lads, one negro who Is art athlete. His older brother matriculates nt the Slate University nt Iowa City. 1 asked Hazel Lusby, the-ir grandmother, haw come the lads didn't attend the same school. Shr replied Robbie likes rt smnllot college. David has entered upon his sophomore year. The way thi- years speed past, it won't be lonn till the third son Richard will be ready for collc'gc. v •:••„, •;.

I attended a meeting * few years ago and there are various angles., of.': interest.-.' However, I am not 'planning on attending this meeting. The one.' thing that would •'-.induce me to' go. is that Harold Wilke Will be the speaker. You wilt recall that he married /Margaret Vigars. In spite of having been born without arms, he has made a wonderful life for himself and has been an inspiration to many. * * \ * ..'...
