8*-A!0ono (la.) Upper Das Moines Tuesday, August 31, 1954 Tidbits From Evelyn Life is lull of supHses, and Mrs Howard Beardsley had ,a very pleasant one recently. Her son and daughter-in-law Mr and Mrs Walter Beardsley and family bf Midland, Texas, came home for a vacation and wanted to spend some time at the Okobbjis. Naturally, they wanted a complete family circle with Grandma Florence and Grandpa Howard .with them. Charlene, the granddaughter, had brought no jeans with her but had a good supply of shorts and dress up garments. Down the beach was a family with children the age of Charlene and one little girl offered a pair of jeans. Mrs Beardsley asked the name of the family and found that Grandma was also with that group. The surname struck n familiar 'chord and Mrs Beardsley asked "What is grandma's first name?" "Lomina", answered the child. Thrilled at the name which brought back memories, Mrs Beardsley accompanied the Child to the cottage and there met Mrs Bacon of Estherville, whom she had not seen since the 4 year of their graduation from high school at Vinton in 1909. • » • I believe I am psydhid; 1 'call ed Mrs Rose Anderson for ftews the other day.

I wish she'd see my rose and snow '-plate. It is very pretty and I wonder what it's value is. • , ; * « . ;«• Mrs Imelda Engssser and son Dan recently returned from West Bend, Wis. where they visited ne'r brother and sister-in-law Mr and Mrs William Dpoley. Apparently they had a wonderful time. She said the house was in a messtas houses get even though unoccupied for a few days. I closed our conversation by saying "Well, go get the house straightened." She replied, "I'll have to get the pep first." And Dan had seen so much that when she said something to him about the fair, he said "What fair?" Oh awful blow —KOSSUTH COUNTY FAIR o. course. » « * Orchids to Elizabeth Post and her assistant Hazel Lusby for a job beautifully done at the Kossuth county fair. They were in charge of textiles and when Herman Hauberg complimented them on the arrangements of articles on display, you .know it was GOOD. I * * • Speaking of the county fair, when my paper boy, Dieter Gruner collected Saturday morning, I asked him v;hat he thought of our big county fair. He replied, ,','It was all right, but it wasn't' so' big." ' He was not casting any reflections on it, merelj commenting. I asked "Where v^-you-seen a bigger one."-"In Germany" he answered. I ex- plajned. that Iowa Was divided into 99 :cduhties, each with a county seat, and" that some counties had larger towns. I said I thought if he could see the state fair at Des Moines he would find Germany would be hard pressed to equal it. He said, "I'm going there." I think he will be amazed at the size of that fair. * '* * Mrs Cleve Barton attended school at Quinby several years ago and one of the instructors o'r perhaps he was the superintendent was Morton Mitchell, now of St.-Louis, Mo. She had not seen him in all these years till he called on her the other morning. It is always so pleasant meeting friends of long ago. * * * A woman I knew'many years ago sent a centennia) copy of the Kewanee, 111., paper and with it a letter to a third person asked about several friends and asked, "Is Evelyn Cady still living?' 1 My answer is "Yes—after a fashion." And when she gets intd her Kossuth centennia). paper which she admitted she hadn't had time to read yet, I think my "by-lines" will assure her that I am still Here. She was Celia Dailey^, sister of Tom and Leo and married a Mr Schlindwem. She is now a widow. * * * And since we are on the subject of the centennial celebration, SCHOOL OPENING SPECIAL! ewriler «Vi" x 11" - First Grade Quality ONE REAM (500 Sheets) ONLY UPPER DES MOINES Publishing Co.
