S T R A H A N Adam CMpes Wed Sixty • Two Cotrple Ot>**r>*» iverw March Anniverwify on 16 By Mrs. Frank Johnson On March 15. 18ti, sixty-two years ago, the lives and fortunes of Adam Olpe and Mary Qeaqne were united. Sixty-two years, a mere atom In God's accounting, but a life long span In human estimates. this couple came from Ohio for a look over the broad Iowa prairies, and seeing, found it good to took upon. Here on the same land they first beheld, this pioneer couple have lived, reared their family of one boy and three girls. Here also by their thrift and economy they accumulated their extensive land interest and by this same thrift they have been instruments In helping a number of others to be home owners also. Mr. and Mrs. Olpe have seen the passing of the wild in all its stages, have seen the unbroken prairies under the plow shares, yield Its bountiful harvest. Lived to see, and sympathize with the children left, the passing of their old neighbors and friends, only one or two of whom are still left. The old school house on the comer across from the Olpe homestead, saw each Sunday congregated the pioneer families of Thomas Kaytons, Millers, Lang- mutrs, Hiltons, Weavers, Crls- wells, Cralgs and a score of others. Who Is there that can sound the love of these pioneers for each other; who but they can cast an estimate of the neighbors who would leave their home for a horse back ride or A long walk through the unbroken snow to minister to each other In times of sickness and of sorrow. Alt these things have Mr. And Mrs. Oipe experienced And been nobly enriched by their efforts, Their children rise up And call them blessed, And we who Are privileged to call them friends Are made better by having known them. Their fiftieth wedding anniversary was celebrated at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Zeno •Bass and later their sixtieth at the home of their eldest daughter, Mrs. Tom Braxelton. Still at their advanced age they are Able to look after their work and still fairs of the community which they have helped to create. May they still continue to live And be enabled to enact the part, which they have taken for-their guidance through the years, as "Life is too short to spend in critic peep, Censorious bark, quarrel or reprimand, •Twill soon be dark, Up—mind thine own aim— And God speed the mark." Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert McCain took Mr. and Mrs. Opal Bayes to •Omaha on last Sunday to see their baby son. He has not been operated upon yet, but doctors gave them every encouragement. The baby is now four weeks old and able to undergo the operation, having gained sev e r a 1 pounds in the treatment given htm by the specialists. Mr. and Mrs. Orville Bell and daughters Maxlne and Geraldlne, Vera and Pauline Pollitt and Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Wilson were Sunday dinner guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Nagel. New* df the Strahao Consolidated School Crops Claw ttftte to Coin Jttdfiftg The Farth Crops class nave been devoting tome time to corn judging. This has not been fof the purpose of becoming expert corn Judges but to be able to Select seed corn that wni yield well. The fowa corn yield tests have shown that there Is a direct relationship between kernel characteristics and yield. Men whose corn has yielded better than average have selected smooth dented ears, heavy for size, with horny textured, oily kernels. Study Farm Accounting The Vocational Agriculture Economics class is beginning the study of "Farm Accounting." There are three methods which can be used. They are double entry, single entry, and expense account. Either method may be used but the double entry is the most accurate. This subject is the most neglected part of farming. Each farmer should use some sort of a record to show where they are gaining or losing during the year. Of course during these kind of times a farmer knows he is running behind every year but some enterprises lose the farmer more than others, therefore they should be eliminated or changed. Virgil Hammack. The freshman and sophomore English classes had a spell-down last week. Oiovanna Cunningham, freshman, and Oenevleve Archer, sophomore, were the last to remain standing. New pupils in high school are: Oertrude Heaton from Olenwood, junior; VIrgle Briley from Randolph, freshman.

Even "measles," it seems, was once leprosy, or more often the leper himself, and In an old edition of the Bible we read, "Forsothe be was a strong man and rlche, but mesell." "And what a mess we find ourselves In when we Inquire Into the actual origins of the word 'mess.'" writes a columnist In the Manchester (Bng.) Guardian. "Mess," according to Trench, used to be applied to a quaternion, or group of four persons or things. (A 'mess* at the Inns of Court still consists of four diners.) There lacks a fourth thing to bake up the mess, writes Latlmer, and Shakespeare In III Heny VI, Act 1. Sc. 4 asks, "Where are your mess of sons to back yon now?' the said 'mess' consisting of Edward, George, Richard and Edmund." Egyptians Loved Dogs Although dog bones and pictures of dogs unearthed by explorers have proved that dogs were domestlcat- ed in my,.early .times, the first among the records of such highly civilized peoples as the ancient Assyrians and Egyptians, The Assyrians are known to have had two breeds, the greyhound and mastiff; while pictures found on Egyptian monuments 5,000 years old depict several breeds, varying from hounds closely resembling the English greyhound to a short-legged toy dog. It Is apparent that the Egyptians of that time not only used dogs in hunting, but kept them as pets and house dogs,—Detroit News. Eftteftdfi State Bftfik ijggtMMtfed Mefida?
