There are a lot of disappointed, people in this area, I was one. . Lewis Ferguson has been interested and active in numismatics the past 25 years and recently received a plaque from thf American Numismatic Association of Wichita, Kan. The. plaque is four inches square, black back• ground with a 2% inch-circular, center with raised design, a woman's head, all in gold.'The let- •tering also in gold reads "Heath Literary Award." and is in recognition- of his treaties on "Currency and Banking". His writings take up early Iowa banking land has illustrations of old bills, all obsolete currency. Of particu: lar interest was a paragraph devoted to the cardboard discs used in Algona's early history. These discs were 1% inches in diameter and were of different colors—green, five ;cents, yellow, ten cents, orange, twenty-five cents and red, fifty cents. They bore the imprint, H. F. Watson, and around the edge, "Pay the bearer 5 cents in currency when pre-- sehted in sums 'of one dollar." It, also bore a notary seal. This book is rated as having the most complete listing of Iowa obsolete notes to date. the work thefe, df the assistants, Mary Frasef, Aludrey Duhcfln and high school girls, it amazes the, How little we- realize .the work involved arid pet-haps 'wd are unaware because everything goes so smoothly. , •* * * The woman t read about who had wall-to-wall carpeting on hfer living room'CfifLfNG Sure needs her headYe'xamihe'd. » * •' i ' * t *')'*. i'f A card fram a friend showing Bishop's Btrffet at.
