His first claim was the farm which, now belongs to the Dickinsons. He sold that claim to James Roan" and bought the claim where I now live.

H&use Buili in Iftftj "The house, in. was built in 1870 and father collected the material from various places in southern Minnesota nnd loWa and then in the fall of 1870 the Milwaukee railroad came as far as Algona. By the way, the foundation of our? home was built by a ooupleVofi young men, Sam Plumley and James Cowan, father of Hal Cowan. Both passed as unmarried, but not for long, as a Mrs, Plumley and two children soon arrived. But James Cowan was really:, unattached and later married one of the best women in Algona. She was a teacher at the old depot school. Like all kids we enjoyed the romance no duo'bt better than they enjoyed us. , "Our foundation is still intact after 76 years and has had no pointing- up or repairs and will stand another 75 years if no fires or floods destroy it. They do not build them that way now. "I started out to say I have lived in the same house 75 years. They built ah • addition to it when my Ihsl sister died and the children came to live with us, which will be 50 years in the spring. "I miss Jennie Wadsworth for she was an authority on old times. There are so many things I' do not' remember and she had a. wonderful memory. I do remember of writing a paper for the Plum Creek, club on "Reminiscences" and in it wrote 'Why remember what you have done? God will remember the good and the neighbors the bad.' That holds good today. Praises Reed History "For authentic history of the early days I recommend Ben Reed's History of Kossuth county. He is very accurate. I read in one history of Kossuth county, published in 1884, that good old Grandfather Riebhoff, had married his second wife three years before his first wife had: died—what a find for a genealogist! And a good cause for Blackmail. You will find.,no such: discrepancy in Ben Reed's History. He has been very careful. "If there are others who have' lived longer than I on the old 1 home farm I would' like to know. "Just one piece of advice to those who are sensitive about their ages. Do not always live on the place in which you were' born. Ben Reed's mother-in-law always remembered I was just six months old when they came to Alpona and good old Doctor. Garfield would say, 'You were. "Ust^ ap-bafoy when' I' came and: low old* arc you now?' " CLARA ZAHLTEN. , SUNBURN Four Corners: Mr. and Mrs. Earl. Gappa returned from a< week's honeymoon at Lake Okoboji last Saturday. They are now at home to their friends at Geo. Boswell's cabins. They caught a few fish and two lovely sunburns.
