The reason for -this Pollynnnia spirit is Ithat so many nice things have happened to the people at our house (this week, that our problems, although still present, have sort of been pushed into the background. On the theory .that we hardily ever get a situation like this, I'm going to try to pass on the bonanza to see if I can cheer up som'ebody else. * * * DOES YOUR HOUSE LOOK DIRTY TO YOU ? Are there cobwebs in the corners, grime on the windows and do your slip-covers need washing ? If there is anybody else who hasn't done her spring housccleaning as ye 1 ! and wants to feel better ailmost immediately, come on over and lake a look around here ! When you feel despondent over accumulated clutter, rolling up your sleeves and starting to dig is the wrong way to meet the situation. Go find someone who is a worse housekeeper 'than you are. Then you cam sit around and gloat. Even I can do ithis for I know at least two people who were worse housekeepers than I am. The Collyer brothers ! * * * ARE YOU SICK AND TIRED OF washing and ironing ? I am, loo, but just consider this fact. In. some pants of the- world, Lower Slobovia, for example, there are primitive people who do itheir laundry by laking it down to the river and pounding the clothes clean on .the rocks. (This system has also been strongly advocated by one Algona husband). When the gals get ithe clothes wrung out they hang them on the bushes to dry. And Lower Slobovia is amply populated by huge flocks of birds who make a regular habit of flying over the bushes. Now you don't feel so bad about washing'and ironing ithosc 17 shirts with your automatic'equipment do you ? *•**•, DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE THE WOMAN in ithe shoe who, "Had so many children,'she didn't know what to do ?" A while back I read about a couple who were rearing a family of 14 kute, all unpremeditated, in a four room house. Last year the mother heaved a big sigh of relief because the youngest of the 14 was finally m kindergarten and she had the house to herself -for alt least part of the day. It was so quite around ithere she nefarly iwenlt out of her mind ! So they .purposely had child number 15 to fill in with some dm. I don't know what they plan ito do when number fiSteen goes to km- derganlen, but I assume lhat by then they'M have some grandchildren. * * * ARE YOU PLAGUED BY A PIMPLE ON your nose or a pesky cold sore on your lip just when you wanit ito look especMly nice? You have my sympathy, because it has happened to me on. almost every important occasion of my life. But It could be worse. I read about a guy who had leprosy. First his right ear fell off bnd then the bottom of his nose. Next he lost two fingers and a thumb and- the 'last .time I heard abouit him he was dripping s P are P arts *? over the countryside..Your cold.sore doesn't hurt you so very much now, does iit ? ' * * * - • .... HAVE YOU HAD A FIGHT WITH YOUR, husband ? Do you, once in a while, think''it would be better if you had married one of those scads of other guys who were mad about you in your single days ? My prescription• for ithis'is to look up a coupte of your, former, Romeos. They may not be so glamorous as you once thought they were (The fact that you probably aren't either is;entirely beside/the point). If the guy you could have married has more money, 111 bet your husband has more hair. He doesnU ? Well, (then I'll bet the man you married helps you with ithe dishes more than your erstwhile boy friend helps his wife. You don't know about /that ? WeM, there must be something your guy has that is better or you wouldfaU have stuck it out all these years. And though your trials are many, at least the problems are familiar and wouldn't it really be an awful lot of trouble to start aill over and break in a brand new husband ? * * * • DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TOO BUSY ? Does the telephone ring just when you have climbed into the bathtub and were you supposed 'to be at four separate meetings at the same time last Thursday? Once there was a one-armed paper hanger and the pattern his customer chose had stripes and a floral design to be matched. Jusit as he got the stuff all gooped up ready to hang, a fly lit on his nose. He was even busier than you or I are. On Ithe other hand, maybe your trouble is that you are bored and have so, little to do that time drags. But think of how much more slowly time would pass if you had .the Seven Year Itch ! * * * ARE YOUR PROBLEMS MAINLY ON the financial side. Sister, I can really speuk with ithe voice of sympathy and authority there I Often I moan that an extra $100 would solve all my problems. But lately I've been reading about a couple of English girls, Queen kliza- bcith and Princess Margaret, who have rooms in itheir castles they haven't got around to visiting, and pearls and emeralds Ithey haVen t yet worn. But neither of them, according to articles in the newspapers and magazines, have pocket money to put in .the offering at church, and neither can afford to pay their footmen more than lj per week ! And one of those footmen had to sleep in a ttny room, in a too-short bed, accompanied by three of the royal dogs ! 1 he footmen .got their compensation, however. Now they are writing articles in American newspapers and magazines telling, among other things, what kind of underwear the roval sisters prefer. ^ LAST WEEK, I WENT ON SO long about the graduates, I didn't have room to include a reccipe. I didn't think it would be missed, but it was by at least one Algona reader, a man at that — boup Briggs.

COUSINS Jim Roose, 84 and his cousin John Roose, 85, met for the first time after going their seperate ways 61 years ago.
