: Powdering on the Aonot &f the SJinta Ana-Anaheim postcard and the cupping and comment on weather I mentioned last week, I wonder If it might have come from O. J.

So much for my "Sherlock Holmes" routine! * •• * * It seems people can grow-tited of celebrities and, such was the case of Rodney Totter, relative of Audrey Totter of tho movies. He has so many professional relatives, he decided to go into something very different. 1 , He is a plumber, a very good one, and was working at the home of Mr. find Mrs, Stanley'Miller, of Costa Mesa. Calif., when Minnie and • Adrian Sterling were visiting them. Mrs. iMiller is the .former Jeanette,- Sterling. The Sterlings enjoyed.; their visit .very much but JoWil looked so good to them! 1 California isi too dry, monotonous and crowded. • • : »..'< * I have mentioned a 'former teacher, Charlotte Sweeney, (Mrs. H.

Hint summer, 1911, I had five weeks of primary method in summer school. My last week was afc Ot- turnwa. 1 was home at Comanche fbr A week. When I told where 1 would, be going 1. was told Ottumwa was where Bert .Sedgwiek hhd just built a home, Where he .and his mother lived. Arid ' -the frierid adde/J, "You know Bert always like'd you." Well, I hadn't seen Bert since we 'Were both 19. Now he was man grown and a passenger engineer on the .CB & Q RR. I went to Ottumwa, met Bert after 19 years.' We erijoyed each other and I went back to Minneapolis to teach. Two years later we were married and had 42 years of a very happy married life. I never taught school after I was married but 1 gave the best 1 knew to Sunday . School teaching. One 6f the joys that comes to me is hearing of a pupil I loved in school. I loved to teach. God Bless you." * * * ' "Old age" has many compensations and one of them is being a member of the Kossuth County Society. I' attended • the banquet May 1st at the Country Club and a fine meeting it was, attended by 250 persons. It was nice seeing so. many old friends.' The Barber Shoppers, Glen Graham, Dr. Harris, Ed Sindelar and Eugene Hutchins, were enjoyea very much and Chet Schoby Was a fine M.C. • » * Beulah Richardson called here a short time ago and pronounced my- viblets in excellent condition. They are blooming profusely. • '» * I received three May baskets —one from Mrs. Jerry Lewis Sunday School class, one from Jenhelee Hutchison and one from the Paul OstWinkle children. Thank you again, donors. The Hutchison basket pulled a switch 4—a nice little bar of good smelling soap decorated with a perky pink bow. 1 * » » Calling Marg Dahl for news, 1 was greeted with, 'I'll bet you don't know 1 what I am doing." Confessing to ignorance, she replied, ."Making May baskets,'' which broyght a big laugh, remembering the time years ago we made such .elaborate baskets for her daughter, Shirley 'Vinson Pratt to pass among her friends. Boy! Did we make two humdingers, then had to restrain our artistic efforts to the less decorative but more quickly-fashioned baskets. * « * Lizzie Post is making an Afghan of multi-colored- yarn left over from various knitting projects. She is making it in strips and will then fasten them together. I believe it was Evalyn .McDougall who mentioned a boy.'s sweater made of yarn-lofti,overs top and how big it went over with the lad. So .much so, his prother wanted one like it. Mentioning this to Dorothy McKim, a nurse here, she proved she cnpws her Bible for she remarked, "a Joseph's coat." Yea verily. * « Contents of the Algona Public library were swelled when Har- Hutchins sold his home and moved into a small apartment.

I enjoyed the chat. » » Sigrid Kohlhaas also was a cal- er. Another day Abner and Blanche Long, Davenport, were iere and with them were Nona ind Max Miller. The Longs were house guests of the Millers a ;ew days and also of Hazel Lusby the second half of their yis- ,t here.

I recently learned Lizzie is another lemon and orange tree grower and the orange tree has one product turning color ana some blossoms. » * * When I read the list of Baptist ministers, the first one, William Leggett rang a bell. I believe he married my grandmother Margaret Heckart and grandfather Thomas Henderson. 1 have the license among my keepsakes and some day will get it out and see. • » » It was an interesting coincidence when Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Ward and Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Baker, Tacoma, Wash., met here recently, the Wards visiting Mr. and Mrs. August Slagle and Bakers' visiting Mrs. Hortense Ferguson. The couples live just two blocks apart and neither knew the other was vacationing in Iowa .and Algona. The Wards are cousins of Mrs,. Slagle and Mr. Baker is a nephew of Mrs. Ferguson. What makes it additionally interesting i^ that Mrs. Ward, nee Delia Norton, Mrs. Milton Norton, nee Nell Waters, and Mrs. Slagle, nee Millie Sherman, taught school here a number of years ago. The Nortons are not related, however. The women had ft fine-time covering old times. The Wards parked their trailer at the Slagle farm and the Bakers parked in the trailer court. * * * * - • . • Marie Hawcoft and het siSlet Bess' Hopkins paid me a visit tne other day.
