I." Dodcls, of Union township, and lie said' he enjoyed his ^coffee especially along with my I'iddiinj, both being good, so to speak, and Torsten i.uqiTslHim, another Swede and therefore exceptional at gulping, said lie had a problem and that was what to do with the sugar sunii'limes in the bottom of I he cup. whether to scjk it and gulp that, too. or whether to let it go to the dishwasher, and I suggested that Torsten quit putting gravy in his coffee and he wouldn't have any of those problems, so to speak. Duane Dcwel, writes one and I write one and while the other guys don't write buhk like 1 do nevertheless its .columns .they write and so there is more or less raving in all of 'em, so to speak. This week I'm moving ftom South Dodge street to North Thprington because on account of I like to live up north where it's cooler during the summei months and I'd appreciate any help you can give me lugging my household goods and other junk fo 513 N. Thoringtoh this week- saves a lot of drayage, so to speak. And H. F. Fristedl was also si.tin'.el up but I was told that he never let his mustache grow long enough to get into his Java so he's now a member.'and Clarence Priebe was also fixed up witli a card, and at a table back of me was A. T. Chrischillcs and he suggested that I take time out. go to the office, bring back some 300 i a: ils and he'd help me sign up the whole gang and Fred Kollasch. of \Vhitti more, and C. R.
