Mr, and MM, E., B. • Carlson have returned from;-a week's vis- It at Madison, BeaVlf- BaiH, Pox Lake and The Dells, Wis. Mrs. Carlson's family, now leased, lived at Be/vef Dam .and she was born at I*o& Lake. Of course, it was interesting bding in die old familiar places. ' * * * An inierestlfig, communication from Qldnn Naudain, brother'of Vallo, Bock Hill, S. C. .says "I notice you refer to-the Hendersons of California a great deal. I believe this Leeta is the daughter of Ross Stebbins, a cousin of mine. Since the Hendersons are cousins of, yours, I guess that makes-us cousins-in-law doesn't it? (I am sure it • does, Glenn. Shake on. it!) "Again I (noticed that you and Zada (Vallc-'s wife) were discussing the location of Dartmouth College. Some 15 years, ago my wife arid I were wandering around in beautiful New.England. We stayed overnight in a little town of Hanover in western dentral -part' of New Hampshire located on the Connecticut river..- We stayed in Hanover Inn across the street from Dartmouth. I remember the typical New England Church,' white with a high steeple. Dartmouth has about 3,000 students, aboui the size of Cedar Falls or half of Drake.. The aristocrats • like the college—it is noted for skiing and beating Harvard in football" In case readers wonder about relationships-^-Mrs. Mattie Stebbins, mother of Ross,, and "Mrs. .Naudain, mother of Glenn and Vallo, were sisters. Now you can follow through to Leeta and 'Glenn. • ', • "••»••• • A card from Yarda and Lyle Ellis who were: enroute to their home at . Hartford, Conn., 'was sent from Erie, Pa., and; pictured a de luxe motel they had patron- ised several times previously. It's name should be conducive to repose—"Tranquil' Motel." * * * ' A leiier from my cousin Melvin Henderson, Upland, Calif, laments "October here - and it is supposed to be fall by the cal- ender. However it is an even 100 today and was 98 yesterday. They say tomorrow another hot one. Can't ^California ever get any rain to wash it's hot grimy face and begin to look like something again? We finished the Los Angeles County fair last Sunday night in a blaze of glory. There were about 1,200,00 visitors ana: it was one of the most successful yet. We did very well with our citrus exhibits.-We. won a total of $1,430 in prize money. Leeta is'coming along slowly but'sure- ly from her recent, surgery. Building is continuing at a mad pace here, and far more houses. Yes, fall is here. Mrs. Lindquist's cannas have been taken up but some valient roses still bloom. "The Last Rose of Sum- mer"—kinda sad and depressing. Another sign of fall—an occasional mouse whose life isn't worth, .a nickel. Everybody is alerted and Mr, Mouse is a goner in no time. I had one in my room but I shouldn't worry about that! Remember the singing mouse we had that made a paragraph in the paper some years . ago? No. I wouldn't be interested in any more. The 'place 'for a mouse is in a trap. •» * . • Mr. and Mrs. Fred Geigel went to Monroe, Wis., to attend the family celebration of the 103rd birthday of Fred's -uncle, Matthew Geigel. Matthew Geigel was born Sept. 24, 1858 of Swiss parentage. His wife died about 12 years ago and he has since then made his home with his daughters, Mrs. Ann Leglcr and Marie Geigel. There are two retired sons, William and Albert. In spite of his advanced years, Mr. Geigel's mind is keen, his eyesight fair and he keeps informed and interested in world events. He retired some time ago from the hardware and implement business. He has the distinction of being the oldest man in Wisconsin in Blue Cross membership. He is a member of the Odd Fellows order and when the A pressure wafer system — electrically operated — plus an electric water heater means plenty of hot water whenever you need it. And that means better, easier . living. ' 100th anniversary of the I.. Evangelical church is celebrated soon, Mr. Geigel, three years old at the time the edifice was buil{, will be given special recognition. ' ' * * * ; The next lime there is a band festival, why not route it past the Good Samaritan Home. There are many persons here who get outdoors very little, n6t even off their own floor, but they could look from the porch and from their windows, and thej> could hear the music, it would mean only a few extra blocks and how the residents would enjoy it. « « • * "It's an ill wind—" and be* cause of an ill wind, Mr. and Mrs. Walter ,Zentner and Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Strayer enjoyed a fine trip to New Glarris,' Monticello, Albany, Jartesyille and Monroe, Wis., where they visited relatives. Mr. Zentner and Charles Sorensen were putting ot> some storm wJndaws. One mart WSrkihg the first floor, one th* secdnd. The* ill wind blew a ttiftdow down, it hit Mr, Soreti' sen who lost his balance and fell on Mr. Zentner. After several days of misery, Mr. Zentner com suited' a doctor and discovered he had suffered a Broken collarbone and other lesser hurts. But he could ride. Herlce the trip. < » * Yeah man! "It's wonderful tt have our border with Canada undefended—but sometimes "we wish it Were weatherstripped." A Canadian nudist camp posted this sign-on the gate: Clothed for the Winter." • . • . -• I was pleasantly surprised Oct. 8 by a visit from my very good friends Clarence and Maggie Pannkuk, Fairmont, Minn. With them .was Mrs. Margaret Morrow, also of Fairmont. It was Clarence and Maggie's forty- eighth wedding anniversary and .they attended services at the Congregational church of which Maggie was a member years ago.
