Barrett home story la intended as an explanation of a situation which may have caused four very fine ladles of Burt some embarrasment. they chose to return from a shopping trip to Des Molnes, late Thursday. Encountering Icy pavements, and foggy weather, they stopped at Ames and put In a call to Burt, seeking masculine wisdom and judgment. The masculine wisdom was to the effect that the ladles had better stay In Ames and await better driving weather. Forthwith the ladles decided to continue on home, while the husbands went peacefully to bed, with the satisfying thought that their wives were safe In Ames on a night like this. Hours passed; cars passed; miles passed—and the ladles finally arrived at the foot of the hill on highway 169, Just north of Algona. They could not get up the hill. So they rolled back off the roadside and proceeded to sleep until daybreak, when a masculine passerby aided them In getting a run for the hill which enabled them to get over the top. But, otherwise than that, the escapade was uneventful, although the husbands were quite surprised to have their wives arrive home so early In the morning. But being wise husbands, they were not so surprised, on second thought, to find that good, masculine advice had been thrown to the winds. The moral, If there Is one, seems to be "do your Christmas shopping In Kossuth county." - : — Charles Hilferty returned on Wednesday After a week's visit with relatives in Mason City.
