Sw» Farrowing Up In Kansas TOPEKA CAP)—A 5 per cent hcrease in the number of sows farrowed and intended to farrow RETIRED OLD PUMPER — Clifford Stipp, 222 t. Logan, tugs at steering wheel of 1919 Model-T Ford fire truck in basement of his antique and used furniture business. Truck originally was purchased by Thayer fire department for $2,500. It came ready for use with solid rubber tires, crank, magneto headlights, coal oil taillights and big brass gong. (Herald Photos by Dick Crawford) Store Pulls Many Lookers With Products Out Of Past "HIGHWHEELERS" QUITE A FAD ONCE - Velocipedes were "all the go" between 1880 and 1890. This one, Columbia Light Roadster, is 83 years old. Front wheel is 52 inches in diameter and back wheel, 21. Clifford Stipp, owner of "highwheeler" demonstrates manner for getting on it. WHOA THERE! — Harness and saddle makers once used papier-mache horses like these pictured here to display there wares and to add more realism to displays of buggies and other vehicles. Clifford Stipp has three horses purchased at various places. Horses were made on wooden frames with wood or metal legs. Stipp also has many buggies among his antique collection. THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, March 23, 1963 The signs at 222 E. Logan say Used Furniture" and "Antiques," but, in many respects, Ike-Mike Used Furniture resembles a museum more than a business place. "Most people are lookers," according to Clifford Stipp, owner of Ike-Mike. "They come from all over to see buggies, model T's, picture frames, a high wheel bicycle, an ancient Motiograph movie projector, a 4-cylinder motorcycle, several model horses once use by harness makers to display their goods, a Japanese cannon believed to date back to World War I. Most of the "old things" around Stipps place are for sale, but Stipp says he buys many of them as a hobby. Stipp decided on the name, Ike-Mike Used Furniture, because it is easy to remember, he said. As a matter of fact, most people know Stipp as Ike rather than his own name. He started in business here in 1948 and has spent a good deal of time "scouting around' o'fr antiques and old parts to repair some of the old pieces he has. When he bought the Japanese cannon a wheel was missing, but after a long search, Stipp found one in a shop in Thayer near Chanute. He found some old solid rubber tires and wheels in Scranton for a 1919 Model T firetruck. Stipp says antiques and antique parts can be found if one persists in his search. They seem to pop up in big cities and little towns, or just about anywhere, including junkpiles on remote farms. Stipp and his family live in an apartment above the store on East Logan. He works at night at the Cities Service pla n t east of Ottawa. Choose your Pharmacist as you would choose your Doctor. May we fill your next prescription? RANEY REXALL DRUG 304 S.
