Copp is getting to be quite a fahlily man with his birds and bees experiences this Week. He has a robin family at the depot and the little ones fell out so he fixed, a railing on the nest. There has baen no comment from the mother and it • might be a good idea to get Mr Copp's comment on the bee epi- ! sode. Nell Opheim has taken over the postoffice job and is pretty busy ; at it. In fact Wilford Ward has taken over", her garden for another one of his farms. - Mrs Don Prew called on Mrs : Merle Hoover and left most of 'Sammy's kittens. - ' Mack Wise is going to have to ; start putting in a different variety of foods at his market now that he has customers of unusual tastes from Mexico. It's pretty hard to catch up with Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbach now that they are back horde. They are getting around visiting friends and using the rest of the time to catch up on their delayed yard and garden work. Friendly Club members should make a special effort .to attend this Thursday's meeting at Mrs Soren Didriksen's home. There will be a discussion of the centennial plans and we would like everyone's opinion on the project. The rtew railroad crossing signs show up'-qjuite well but they do not seem to have the desired effect any more than the old ones did, where some of the drivers on the Sexton-LuVerne road are' concerned. , Drusie Noble now at home at the St. Ann hospital is making good progress. She sends a message to Sexton residents to behave themselves until she can get home to supervise. She could not quite find the words to ex' press her thanks for the cards, flowers, and visits of friends. ., Mrs Glenn Gabrielson attended the Irvington Women's-Club and the school change is still a pretty hot subject when a gro'up of women get together..At least this has made people inpre interested in their schools. A lot of people are watching with interest August Kirschbaum's attempt to cut down on his lawn full of yellow dandelions and the spray job seems to be doing something to them. In answer to all the questions as to when Clarence Huff is Ruing to start his house, the work is in progress now, with Bob Kelley doing the good job. It: a good thing Bob has a lot' o confidence in himself 'or he would never stand up under the barrage of questions he has been subject An owner was finally locate for that stray horse in town which had made quite a trip t get here from the Joe Skow home at Wesley'. Mrs Leslie Huff spent an after- nopn with her mother, Mrs Carrie Olserj to see how she is making it all alone.
