That is such a lovely drive, so picturesque and "woodsy". I only favor grades to enable people tc get back and forth in rainy seasons, but the old flat road of my youth, broad and roomy is gone and in it's place a graded highway, and if I had to cope with the mud, I'd say a more hearty hurrah for the new "highway' which describes it—"HIGHway" if I must point out my wit! • « * Two Algona families have been interested in TV of late.
