Upper Des Molnes-3 Gone—But Not Forgotten The mystery of the missing cuis of the Ezra Benson ( visit io Kossuth couniy siill remains a partial mystery. The cuis had noi arrived as of Monday noon, Ocl. 18. The cuis, seven in all, were mailed to the Upper Des Moines from LaCrosse, Wis., at 5 p. m. on Oct., 9, a Saturday. They should easily have reached Algona by Monday morning, Oct. 11. >• " . In'the meantime, the pictures from which the cuts were made arrived Monday, Oct. 18, in a'special envelope from the Chicago, 111., postoffice, with the notaiidn ^damaged in handling in the postal service," The pictures were still damp, and for all we know the cuts may be swimming around somewhere in Chicago, where a flood hit the Union station that weekend. We can only hope that someone, somewhere, points out to the postal dispatcher who threw this "special handling" parcel into a mail sack that it is a lot quicker to send mail from LaCrosse, Wis., via either St. Paul and Mason City, or '" south to Prairie DuChien, than it is to send it a useless 200 miles east into Chicago from LaCrosse. . • Mariners' Club The Mariners' Club of the Presbyterian club met Sunday evening for a pot-luck supper in the recreation room at the Joseph Skow home., Mrs Fedelia Kiilsholm gave a book 'review and movies of the centennial parade were shbwn. ; * Youth Group .Party The Youth Group-of the Presbyterian church met Wednesday after school at the church.
