ANYONE REMEMBER?—Perhaps some old-timer can remember why someone dug a well only a couple of feet from the Main Street sidewalk at 1st and Main. Workmen employed by Lindel Chism, contractor, uncovered the old well while preparing for construction of building for Oklahoma Tire & Supply Co., store. Workman shown beside the well is Dave LeRoue, 134 S. Maple. One Ottawan said the well was dug to supply a public horse- watering trough which once was located nearby. Another said a saloon once was located on the corner and that the well provided the "branchwater" to go with the bourbon. (Herald Photo).

Hardware Age, a trade publication says that rental equipment can be an added profit- making incentive to draw increased customer traffic. Most consumers are going to need tools for their many spring lawn and garden projects. In the majority of cases the tool needed will be used only once, and, if the cost of purchasing the tool out right can be avoided homeowners will take advantage of the rent opportunity. Besides making money by renting, retailers will be creating traffic, since a customer who rents a tool must come into the store at least twice. These customers usually buy on an average between $3 and $5 in related merchandise. Many customers who first rent tools later decide they have more use for the item than they thought at first and return to purchase it. Harry Smith Auto Supply was host to 50 local service station and garage workers at an AP muffler and tail pipe meeting on Tuesday, March 19. Special films were shown on mufflers, sports and general sales. Good news for all women who love to use their silver but hate to polish it. A new silver polish just reaching the market is supposed to prevent tarnish from forming for periods ranging from six months up to as long as a year. This new product is Hagerty tarnish preventive. The manufacturer says a protective bond is formed by the use of this polish which locks out tarnish for months. In average use, you can expect to have to dust your displayed silver occasionally to renew the lustre while tarnish stays absent for from four to nine months. On flatware and serving pieces which are used and washed frequently, the polish can be expected to last through six or seven washings in strong detergent. Hagerty tarnish preventive is available in Ottawa at Madtson's. Ralph and Sadie Heckman, formerly of Leavenworth have purchased "Joe's Cafe." The name will be changed to "Sadie's Cafe", and an announcement of a special get-acquainted offer will be made in Monday's paper.

Lewis said he drew customers from Waverly, Edgerton, Wellsville, Quenemo, Lyndon, Osawa- tornie, Garnett, Williamsburg and Lebo in addition to Ottawa.

Ann Landers Legato Teenager Must ges notice. »s provided by law, and U their demands are not thus exhibited they hall be forever barred. Muriel L. Devlnf Administratrix Anderson St Byrd Attorneys for Administratrix Dear Ann Landers: It seems like every tints I pick up a newspaper or a magazine these days there is an article on "The Plot To Abolish Childhood." Parents are being verbally tarred and feathered for pushing their children into a world of grown-ups before they are ready. Why doesn't somebody write an article on "The Plot To- Abolish Adult-; hood?" This would help us teenagers a lot There are plenty of teenagers who are suffering it the hands .of parents who are trying to keep us babies forever. Everyone needs a childhood, Miss Landers, but it shouldn't last until we're 50 years old. My mother told me last night I can't wear make-up until I'm 21 — unless I plan to go on the stage. This means I have to wait six years. She seems to think make-up is only for actresses. Dating is out of the question. Please say something in your column about this unfair treatment - A CHILD FOREVER Dear Child: I don't know how old you are, but I've seen teenagers with make-up so heavy they look as if they're ready for the TV cameras. A 15-year-old should be able to use powder and lipstick, and she should be able to date once or twice a week if her grades are respectable and she can read a wrist watch. The best way for a teenager to get "adult" privileges is by behaving in a responsible, mature manner which suggests he can handle them. Dear Ann Landers: For many years I knew a married couple who did not get along well. They had three children. The woman divorced her husband and the court awarded the children to her. The husband is a fine man and wanted to keep the children. In this state, however, unless the husband can prove his wife is an out-and-out tramp, the children are awarded to the mother. I have indisputable evidence — precisely what the husband needs — proving the woman is an unfit mother. Now I'm unable to decide whether or not to turn this evidence over to the husband. I am searching my heart for the answer and I can't find it. This woman once did me a very dirty trick and I'm afraid deep down I may be wanting to get even with her. Revenge is sweet but will I hate myself after I've had my revenge?—AN EYE FOR AN EYE Dear Eye: Your decision should be based on what would be best for the children. Under whose roof will they have a better chance to grow up straight and strong? Who can give them time, attention, love, and discipline? I doubt that you are equipped to answer these questions objectively. Let your clergyman decide. Dear Ann Landers: I like the confidential at the end of your column. They are intriguing and it's a challenge to figure'out the problem from your answer. Recently in a confidential you made a biblical reference which had to do with casting pearls to the swine. Will you please tell me where in the Scriptures this can be found? I though I knew the Bible pretty well but this line was new to me. Thanks, Ann, for all the joy you bring and for all the good you do.-MAIN STREET Dear Main: The swine line is from the Book of Matthew, Chapter 7 Verse 6: "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." To learn how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Necking and Petting — And How Far To Go," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Dear Ann Landers: A family in our neighborhood has two sons and a station wagon. The parents have nothing to do with adults but they love children. They often have outings for the neighborhood kids which some of the parents think is quite wonderful. This is what they do: They send a permission slip for the parents to sign. This slip tells exactly how much money the child should be given to pay for his ticket, if they are going to a circus or a movie or a sports event. If they have planned a picnic the child is told what food to bring, as his share. My husband thinks these people are doing us a favor by just taking the children (who love it). I feel it is cheap of them to invite the neighborhood kids and expect them to pay their own way. Do you?—IRKED Dear Irked: Sorry, I'm with your husband. It's admirable that this generous couple is willing to spend their time and energy entertaining the neighborhood kids. I see no reason why the neighborhood children should have their way paid, too. I suggest that you parents get together and entertain the lovely couple occasionally to show your appreciation. Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers if you write for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope.
