Two large wheels at the sides, a seat between, a small front wheel we steered with a rod-like arrangement. Florence Patterson, Ruth Walston and I used to go many blocks with them. There were pedals of course to propel it, was large enough to seat two easily, and sure was fun to manipulate. Oh I do hope we keep trains! I guest Pullmans are no longer A savings account...

But how cozy it was to have the bed made up of one's seat - two sets of curtains drawn, and there we we re-in our own private bed, lights to read if one wished, and a hammock to tuck garments in and out of the way. * * * It seems Cupid's arrows fall on the young and old, the noted and the humble, but this one beats anything I've ever read. We thought it remarkable that Col. R. H. Spencer became father of twins at 75, and another pair a year or two later. But he was a mere lad compared with Sylvester Magee of Hattiesburg, Miss., who at 125 years of age is divorcing his 66 year old wife. A daughter was born to the couple when he was 109. She lives with her mother in Poughkeepsie. N. Y. The man should be put in a glass cage and exhibited as a freak or as a man who has observed all the health rulesl Never smoke, drank strong liquor, ran around with ladies of shady repute - which adds up to a story I read, a little quip which said, "Man, you haven't lived. You've merely existed." A letter from my cousin Julia Cady of Mason City gave a glowing report on her recent vacation and she was so happy to be able to spend a few days with both sons and families, Pat in San Francisco and Dr. Jerry at San Diego. 2 KINDS OF SAVINGS PUNS ()S NEW 6 MONTH HA VI.SGH CERTIFICATES These certificates trt itutj ',*.. *~',.nt; of $1,000 or multipWs of 11,000.

Years ago I knew a young man who tried to get in the navy but was refused because he was too thin. Now I know a girl who applied for training in medical and social welfare work, but was not accepted because she was too heavy. However, she is being given a chance to reduce and apply again in a few months. And diets-some can't have sugar, some can't have salt and it has recently been discovered that cranberry juice works wonders in kidney ailments. The odd thing is that in a family, each member eating the same foods, one will develop one condition, one another. Seems odd our bodies do not take care of the chemicals. When I read Ethel Gardner's ad for her farm sale and household goods, I almost didn't read the small print which we are warned about. She stated in a candid manner that she Is going to live in a rest home. I couldn't get her by phone but a relative confirmed it. I have known Ethel many years but haven't seen her in quite a while. I am sure she will enjoy the home, the freedom from planning meals and that everlasting job of dishwashing I I had a recent letter fromMyrta West. Her husband was the late Miss Bierstedt Of Lone Rock Is Engaged MARGRET BIERSTEDT Mr. and Mrs. Howard Bierstedt, Lone Rock, announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Margret Elaine, to Richard Elbert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Elbert, Algona. The wedding will be held July 22 at St. Cecelia's church, Algona. Robert West, son of a Bancroft doctor. The young couple lived in Algona many years, went to California when we did, then came back and she has been making her home in Perry for quite a while. There was a daughter Virginia who married and had a son, Steve. When Myrta mentioned he was a junior in high school it makes me realize more and more that we are growing upl She had major surgery some time ago but has made good recovery. She goes! to Rochester at intervals for a check-up. These are no longer frequent and she hopes to get to Algona this summer to visit friends. Mrs. West Sr. and my aunt Eva Cady Goddard of Bancroft were very close friends. * * * Diane Jensen, an aide here has lived In Arizona and when she saw my April issue of Arizona Highways, she looked at it and showed me a place where she had picnicked many times. She said there are such beautiful places and she loved the desert when the cacti were In bloom. She agrees with me that castus candy leaves much to be desired. * * * Goodyl Another program canceled - "Gilllgan's Island". I wish they'd have Bing Crosby in "Little Boy Lost" and Audrey Hepburn In "Love in the Afternoon." I'd stay up till midnight to see them. For which, praise the Lord: "There's one advantage to the music the younger generation goes for today - nobody can whistle it."

Thieves stole a one-ton pickup truck and four- horse trailer from Miss Jean McHarg's home, then drove to her ranch and stole four of her prize horses. Miss McHarg valued the horses at $25,000 and the truck and trailer at $8,000.
