Kohlhaas Hardware v ALGONA OUR OWN HARDWARE born January 15 and after eigh years stretching between him anc Chochi, no wonder there was excitement. Behind the name Chochi lies a story. Briefly it is that when Mr Schwarz was held captive by the Japs, he had a loyal Phillipino friend who saved his life besides doing many things for his comfort. The little girl was borrj in Japan and out of friendship for this Phillipino friend was given the name common among the race. When the Philippine friend became a father, he also remembered his friend, and tucked in the middle of the seven names given the child was "Bert", in lonor of the good Americano friend. Mr Schwarz is-an importer and exporter of textiles. * * * Mr and Mrs Andrew Hansen were recently visited by the later's brother-in-law and sister, tfr and Mrs Dom Mertz of Grand sland, Neb.

On that afternoon, Jean went to the refrigerator and poured herself a drink from the jug of water kept cold there. Hef mother discovered she had spill* ed some on the kitchen table and asked her what had happened. Jean replied "My cup runneth over." * * * You remember that old jingle don't you about "Tiddle diddle dumpling, my son John, went to bed with his night shirt on, One shoe off, one shoe on, tiddle diddle dumpling, my son John". My grandmother Cady taught it to me. Well, Mrs Mary Sorenson was a little like "my son John". for she had an infected toe and 'or over a week went around with "one shoe off and one shoe on." I am happy to be able to report she now has BOTH shoes ON. * * » I ran on to "Grace Esther" by accident via phone at the Pres-] byterian church the other day. She has added another job to her list. I don't see how she accomplishes sr> much. I told her I liked her discourse on "Hair." 1 hope she goes ahead with the hair styles she had in mind. If she needs any help, I'll give hen descriptions of the "beehive" Which I doubt if she ever saw, much less wore. And wire "rats." Now here WAS a gadget. * * * The .lure of the southland has charmed two more couples who will be sitting under waving palms and sniffing the flower- scented air. Mr and Mrs Lloyd Muckey left Saturday afternoon for St. Petersburg, Fla., for a month's vacation. They stopped at Winterset for . an over night visit with Mary's sister, Mrs William Comp. The other couple is Mr and Mrs Roy Bjustrom who couldn't wait and left bright and early Saturday morning. They will also be in St. Petersburg and Sarasota. * * * Mr and Mrs Ernest Thlel have also succumbed to the call of thef south but they are going southwest to San Antonio, Tex., and will visit Mrs Theil's niece, Arlene WaYmbier. From there they will go to Tucson, Ariz., for a visit with friends, thence to California to be with her son-in-law) and daughter, Mr and Mrs Ray Rasmussen. They left Monday and plan to be gone four or five weeks. • * * Prances Eason who teaches at Third Ward school came Sunday afternoon to show me the dolls she has made for study purposes. Some are copies of story book characters and some are dressed in native costumes of .foreign countries. The dressing of the dolls must have consumed end-i less hours—the minutest detail has been faithfully followed, and many of the dolls were made entirely by Mrs Eason. The painted faces are a work of art. All in all it is a wonderful coN lection and represents unu'sua* ingenuity and resourcefulness. Topping the doll collection is a bride, Beverly Winkleman in miniature replica. You will 4 recall Beverly married Richard Mawdsley not long ago. The doll has hair "the same color, and styled exactly, a tiny muff with the bridal shower of roses, thti pearl necklace and earrings — well, as I said it is an exact duplicate of the bridal gown and veil. As I have said so often, I love dolls and this sure was a treat for me. I doubt if I'll ever go into it as deeply as Mrs Eason did. I told her she should exhibit the dolls at the Kossuth County fair next fall, Her "light" shouldn't be "hidden under a bushel." 65th Anniversary St. Benedict By Mrs Philip Arndorfer lR4J:S K D RU G -AND JfWE Sunday afternoon callers at the hpme of Mr and Mrs George Kunkel were the former's sister and her husband, Mr and Mrs Tony Ptacek and daughter Sharon.
