It was the proper thing in pioneer days to take children to church, not send them. They were early taught to be seen and not heard. I cannot remember when I first went to church, but my earliest recollections of Sabbath School and church were in th old town hall and of the white-haired saintly man. Father Taylor, standing on the platform. There was a low platform across the south end of the hall and the choir occupied the southeast corner, grouped about the little old organ. As a minister, Father Taylor is not distinct to my mind, but we all loved and revered him as a man. If any man ever felt called to preach the gospel it was Father Taylor. How we looked forward to and loved the Sabbath day. Going to church was as much a part of our lives as eating our meals. Rain or shine, we were there. In those early days we drove a cream colored horse and a yel- Icw dog went along. In later years I learned that when :he horse and dog came in sight it was Ime to ring the bell for the Sabbath School. Being on time was very early impressed on our minds. The classes were small and I can still see them grouped around their teachers, first teacher was my own mother, Nellie Ingham, Olive Ackley and one or two others, whom I do not now recall made up our class. The teacher gave each pupil a small card on which was a printed verse cMch verse we were to learn and recite the next Sabbath, when we had committed a certain number of verses, we ook back our cards and received a arger pictured card which was our /ery own. The older scholars would earn whole chapters to repeat. I cannot remember anything about the so- ial life of the school at this time, but in the country we seldom took FENTON FOLKS BACK FROM CANADA TRIP And Iowa Looks Good After Viewing the Canadian Brought Effects Fenton: Mr. and Mrs. WHmar Hantelman, Barbara Randall and Charles Ulfers returned Saturday from a ten days' trip into Canada, covering twenty-seven hundred miles. Their first stop was at Minneapolis, with Susan Hantelman, a sister of Wllmar and Warren and Arthur Randall, Mrs. Hantelman's brothers. The next day they went as far as Leonard, Minn., stopping at Howard Heads, an uncle of Wilmar. The Heads are former residents of this vicinity. The next stop was at Winnipeg, Canada. They then went west to Regina, where they visited the Wm. Botktns, cousin of Wllmar. They spent a few days with Louis Hantelman, another cousin of Wilmar. Conditions are even worse In Canada than iere. Grasshoppers and drought have destroyed most of their crops, besides the low grain prices. Many people In Canada are driving with horse and buggy to escape the high gasoline prices. 3as ranges from 32 to 37 cents a gal- on there. On account of the drought leople have suffered dust storms, blow- ng out the crop, often to such an extent that they must be reseeded. Mr. Botkln was one of the worst hit and had to reseed wheat seven times in four years. The Canadians are watch- ng with great Interest the development of the N. R. A. and other mea- ures taken by our government. They hlnk the N. R. A. would not work out in Canada but think it will work wonders In the United States. After a week In Canada, one feels pretty well satisfied to get back In the good old Hawkeye state. Local P. T, A, Ready For District Conclave The north central district J». T.

Tie very first I can remember was in 1870. 1 flm not real sure of the date. Instead of a tree they had quite a large boat which brought a present for each child. To us it was brilliantly lighted and a most beautiful ship. Each year there was a tree and' a program and presents for every scholar, home made mostly but we cherished them all. After Father Taylor came Mr. Underwood in 1873. He was young and enthusiastic. I do not remember his sermons but he was a wonderful companion and very fond of fishing. His pastorate was very short.
