Tuesday, October 19,1954 Jltotneg Tuesday, October 19,1954 Tidbits From Evelyn The reeenl trip taken by Ihe "Three Muskateers", Hazel Lusby, Elizabeth Post and myself covered many interesting spots, among which a visit to the Black Hawk State'Park. The first thing we did Was view the beautiful pan* orarria'/rom the paved 'highway and parapet of stone at the edge of a high cliff from which point we could look out across the Mississippi to the hills and high- way beyond. It was a fine time of year to go, cool but not chilly, and the colorful trees painted a picture we will never forget. After enjoying this view for some time, we entered the museum where Indian relics and pictures are kept, such an abundance of things one could spend much more time than we did, though We covered it pretty well. I thought of Clark Orton who is interested in their history. John Haubefg, cousin of oitfj local Herman, compiled and col«- lected the articles and to be cer* tain ot the authenticity of. certain aspects, he had Tama IndU ans build or supervise the work and in some cases, give" information pertaining to various things; The supervisor gave a detailed account of all exhibits and is" thororughly informed on the history of Chief Blackhawk.

I had never known that the teepees were made of bark. I had supposed that all were made of animal skins, tapering to a point making a cone shaped dwelling. These bark teepees are round, and looked like Eskimo igloos. One had an "Indian" lying on a blanket close to the fire, a gun across his body, ready for inquisitive "Whites" I presume, or animals. *' * '* The other teepee was arranged so we could, enter it and there were two bunk beds on two sides of the "house". How a large family could be stowed \n these small places is more, than we could imagine, and the cooking must have been done in the middle of .he floor, except in summer of course. Last but not least in the listory of the area was the skele- :on of John Long who'was hanged for the murder of a Mr. Davenport back "in. 1854. Abner Long, our host, Said John was an ancester: but I couldn't see any resemblance so I think we won't allow Abner to assume any credit for relationship to this dastardly fellow who planned the robbery. * * » From the museum we went into the lodge,'a huge, high ceilinged ro6m finished in pine. Many large and comfortable chairs . and davenports were scattered around the place beside tables of matching Wood with large fireplaces at each end of the room. A thorough inspection of the room, a testing of the comforts of the chairs, and we went on to the dining room where we had a very tasty luncheon. A final. look around at the beautiful scenery and we were on to "conquer" other places. * * * We love driving over high bridges so we were back and forth to Rock Island, Moline, and Bettendorf in such succession I found it difficult to keep' my bearings, much the same as it was on a previous visit to the Longs. We drove to the arsenal at Rock Island and found it just as beautiful, and enchanting as on the first visit. NEED PARTS? FOR PICKER? COMBINE? OTHER MACHINES? BRADLEY BROS. Parts Dept.

It is a building of large proportions, glass windows and doors, modernistic in design and looking toward runways, a beautiful stretch of country lies beyond. Here too is a very nice dining room filled almost to capacity with diners. Jestingly wo wondered when our plane was due. I decided to go to gay Paree, Hazel favored another site and Lizzie was willing to go "just anywhere." I was close to the edge of a ride, but the man who takes up passengers for 15 minutes decided it would be difficult to get me in, so we gave Up the idea and watched a larger plane of the "Mohawk" line come to rest on the nearby runway. It fairly spewed children and we f igured they must have been on a tour. Sure enough, on TV latei that evening it mentioned a group of school children had been taken to Blackhawk Park, and had beer: taken for a ride on this plane. Lucky kiddies. • * * By eight o'clock we were on Ihe road and waved a last farewell to the Longs and guests as they crossed the bridge and we turned to go to Clinton. From Clinton we went to Galena, 111. and stopped to go through U. S. Grant's home, \yhen Lizzie and I went to Ohio'three-years ago we were on this same road and since the house is not far from the highway, we always felt cheated that wt hadn't seen it then. So after three years, we felt very gratified when we had finished the inspection of the place and were again on our way. * * • ' The trip on up the river was of almost indescribable beauty, the rocky bluffs v covered with trees colored in all their autumn beauty. The riv^r is fascinating too and it kept our heads revolving from one side to the other so we wouldn't miss anything. Then at other places we could look from a high sp'ot, out across low lying farms,' the roads a network across the green fields. • » * We drove through Prairie-du- Chien, on to LaCrosse, and reach,ed Winona about 5:30 o'clock having been in four states, Iowa Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota We made a phone call to the W, C McDougalls, former residents here and who had lived, in our apart ment seven years. Hazel and Lizzie'having been neighbors t them all- -this time, we wer anxious to see them. We droy to their house for a brief visi before going to the hotel an promised we'd see them the nex day at the luncheon Evalyn sug gested. ,We wouldn't have beei very good company that night we were tired and ready for bed •• & A » Season Opens To Run Thru December 8 A duck shooters' timetable for the waterfowl season which opened Firday at noon was announced by Conservation Officer Frank Tellier of Koasuth County.

We had done so much of it in Daven- p'ort I couldn't see how anything more of interest could have been bought, but you know how it is with women, there's always some little thing they forgot. Even I —for I had Hazel buy me a lipstick, a brand I had been threatening to use for some time and had not remembered previously. » • • We spent a couple of hours with the McDougalls and tried to tell them all the news of Algona. I think we did a good job. They have a very cozy home, "Mac" is with the Botsford Lumber Yard and they like Winona very much They showed us pictures of the cruiser Mac and a friend had made and they had a wonderful time during the summer, cruising, fishing and camping out: It is a wonderful "play ground". The son Bob is married and is in service. • * * Driving out of Winona to Rochester we again saw the beautiful hills but after a few miles bade them adieu till some future time. We drove around Rochester for my benefit. The others had been there but my hospital experiences had been in Chicago and Iowa City. Rochester is a fine place to be LEAVING! With all the medical and surgical background ;he town has, I was on the alert lest some one approach me and demand my appendix or at least an adenoid. We escaped without molestation, I am happy to say. * * * The finale was lunch at "Frank and Em's", right here in the old home town, and a phone call to my Mrs Gilles to let her know we were home, safe, sound happy and satisfied. It was good news to her as it was a foggy, rainy night, no time for three gals to be on the highways after dark. So here is "fine", finis, or the end till next time. ..Ducks:—Bag limit 4 ducks per day; possession limit 8 after first fiddle and dav ! onlv 1 nooded merganser may be possessed at any time.
