In a chfat with Mrs. Bertha Bilsboroughi a relative, I learned he is in a nursM. ing home at Ottawa, 111. Since I am so content here, I was gted to know he is equally so at his home. * * • Alice Condon was at ihe Oko- .bojis .with her. brother-in-law and .sister when the Elm-Brook* Country club'--burned .recently.

I hope corn on the cob isn't confined to, Americans. It is so delicious', I hope it has been iastituted in other countries. I doubt it. It seems :to me it is traditionally American, though perhaps not-as much on the west coast as in the midwest. i', ». • . ..' I haven't been down by Chris's but I-am told by neighbors his yard., is beautiful beyond . description. I saw many pretty yards in Humboldt on'the trip I'men tioned last week.

We are having some curb arid gutter work done in preparation- for blacktop out north of Good Samaritan?West College street. I am very glad, for the street has been very dusty. You'd be surprised how much traffic there -is on this end of the street. * * . * . . • . i It had been a few months since I had seen Leora St. John due to her hospitalizlation following a back injury and her long period of convalescence, hence her inability to get "over here to 'tties $[cWhprter > and to see . nas now' recovered sufficiently to be brought here he message—"Wfc got home from.our Alaska..trip Thursday and left Saturday in' airplane getting to Tucson Sunday for the.

And here she is grown up and married Aug. 12 at Omaha, Neb. Esther and Eliz- .beth Wolfe went there Sunday to attend a family reception. They accompanied Paul Hudson, Fenton. Mrs. Hudson had gone to the wedding. . * * * Zelba • and Russell -Maxweil have been- here from Ontario, Oalif., visiting with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jewel Patterson and his parents at Eagle Grove. Zelba is compiling data for the Patterson geneology and we have one thing in common; ancestry from 'Ireland. "Her family got here in the 1700s and 'mine in the 1600s. Her mother remeih- bers my great-grandparents, the John Heckarts, and told me of little amusing incidents, times when she went there to use the big swing and play with Julia Schichtl a neighbor about her age. Will Walker, her grandfather Charley 'Walker's brother, married May Cblburn, a cousin of my .mother, both granddaughters of the Heckarts. '•'/*'* * Other ex-Algonans who have been here are-Mr. and Mrs. Art Sorensen. A family reunion was held at, Marshalltown at which the sisters Edna, Mrs. Harry Malloy, Evelyn, Mrs. Warren Reese New Providence, and Dick, Houston, Tex., were present. They are' children of the - well-remembered Mr. and Mrs. Lars Sorensen. While Mr. and Mrs. Jewel Patterson and flieir daughter, Mrs. Russell Maxwell, were on a trip to Wisconsin, the Patterson's fifty-sixth wedding anniversary rolled around Aug. 16. Both attended Cornell college, Mount Vernon, from Which Mr. Patterson was graduated and he [ater attended the University of towa. Except for a few years at Iowa City, they have farmed icar Algona but have been re- ired for some time.

Since there tvere no' high schools, Jonathon came here to enter high school. His parents, brother and sister have now been returned to Minneapolis on a year furlough after five years in South America. The local aspect is that Mrs. Sanford is the former Dorothy Da ken, a Kossuth County girl of the Lone Rock area. • •' • • Another belated birthday re- , . Mrs. McWhorter had. joined her there as Mrs, St. John could not climb the stairs. It was good to see her and she looks just fine. *-.**_ I mustn't, forget to add the birthdays of Anna McQuade and Ethel Gilles were also remembered by Girl Scout troop 23. Both were given; very pretty tray mats with different decorations, most attractive and original. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Ray McWhorter sure get around.
