6-Algena (lo.) Upper D« Moine* Thursday, July 14, 1955 favings CD CHHI8 REEM A Lltllt el ThU. * LII11* ef Th»t; Nei Much of Yep, I admit I do blow that nifnitlioruan a 'lot and at al! sorts of times and in all sorts ol plaees and I often wonder that someone don't take it away from me and throw it into the i ity dump. Yes. I do know several tunes, olden-time though they may he and blowing the thing is good exercise of lungs rind keeps breathing ability at a good par. I always thought it was a moutliorgan that I emptied •wind into but the other day Bill Seifeit told me the proper name •lor the noisemaker was a French harp. And here I always thought a harp was an instrument with many strings and not a blow doings like I play tunes on. But ] assured Bill that I didn't know French tunes, just old hoe- do'wns and Dane tunes. And 1 played for him 'Torgangen Nat Vor Sultne Kat" and he admitted that though lie couldn't understand Dane it was a good tune Hist the same. And Fred Shilts told me that though he didn't care much for mouthorgan tunes PLANTATION BALLROOM WHITTEMORE, IOWA Friday, July 15 VIKINGS Sunday, July 17 BOBBY LINDEMAN Friday, July 22 BABE WAGNER Sunday, July 24 JACK COLE Friday, July 29 MALEKS Sunday, July 31 TONY BRADLEY No Advance Booth Reservations Doors Open at 8:30 lie sure did admit that I know all the mhieaths and oiitbrenth* on a harmonica and though my tuning neared a headache for him nevertheless 1 sure knew my onion* when 1 had that French harp between my lips, so to -peak. Thanks. F'led. —o-And my French harp blowing docs meet with approval by some because on account of it was the other day that I blew a tune for Cecil Will and his young 17- i month. 0 old son. Mai k. got th» i biggest kick out of my harmonica ! blowing and when I asked him j did he like that he nodded h:s j head and stamped his foot ant! so indicated that he was please'! with it. And when I asked Mark did he want to play one he sure nodded his head emphatically and so maybe there will be a harmonica blowing in the Will home, and it won't be the senior Will who will do the blowing. But at that it's a lot of fun to play a mouthorgan and 1 have learned that there an. 1 several Kossuth county gents who put in time tuning on a harmonica. According to reports this has been an ant week in Algona. At least I know of eight families who have found their home a icnde/vous for ants, both the red and the black, though reports have it that the black ants are in the majoiity. According to reports the little black nitwits enter homes and hunt up spacing in the kitchen, and one lady said that this was because the ant has a wonderful nostril and can smell sugar and that is. a. .sweet which the ant loves and hence enters a home within neighborhood of sweets. Thank goodness the ant has no big and noisy vocal elements and if they dkl folks who are visited by the ants would sure go plenty nuts. Several gents have told" me that the cause of the ant visits is backed by the recent heavy rains we've had the past week. According to that I guess an- nnt just can't swim, so to speak. —o— It was on the 1st of July thai we started paying a ' •> per cent increase sales tax. just as though we weren't being tax-held-up aplenty. If your purchase reaches a do/en pennies, no tax, but over that you dig up a penny for every half dollars worth of purchase. But what's the difference, we're getting used to this darn tax-hold-up every time we buy 1 something to live. This life of existence, 1945 on to 1955, has been just one darned tax gouge after another and I, for one, don't like it at all. Do vou?

Baker of LuVerne on the occasion of their 5()th wedding anniversary was held in the Methodist church at LuVerne Sunday, July HI. from 2 to 5 p.m. Many friends and neighbors of the couple attended the fete. Ifosts were the couple's children. They are: Mrs A. W. Porter of Fort Dodge: Clifford M. Baker of Livermoro: Mrs Walton DeWilt of Manson: Mrs W. S. Robinson of Las Vegas. Nev.: Dwight D. Baker of Washington. Iowa. Merlin D. Baker of Cm with: and Cecil Baker of LuVerne. A family dinner was held in thp church basement following the open house. Mr and Mrs Baker were married July 1. lOO.i. at Boone. Attending them were Mr Baker's sister. Mrs C. A. Swan of Woodward and the late Charles E. Jones. Mrs Baker's brother. The Bakers have lived for many years in the LuVerne and Livermore areas where Mr Baker is in the livestock business. They have seven children, all alumnae of the Livermore and LuVerne High schools, and 20 grandchildren. Mr and Mrs Baker are pictured above. (Cut courtesy Fort Dodge Messenger.) At Jhis writing, Monday, we're still enjoying (?) I he 90 degree register. But perhaps we should be used to it by this time? And while we suffered and shrunk, just look what the degree did to our corn. Seemed to leap in height almost a foot a day. And now that the de-tasseling season is here I have been told that some corn tassels are almost out of reach of the teen-agers unless they reach the fi-foot. height. One young gent. 5 feet 1, told me that he didn't think he would take on detasseling this year because on account of he didn't want to carry a step-ladder with him, and reaching to better than six-foot heights proved hard on his arms and muscles. And maybe he's got something there. And one farmer gent told me that the daily growth of his corn had been so. prominent and so outstanding that he could almost hear the stalks take on their increase in circumference and height daily. But there is one sure thing outstanding and that is the beauty of today's corn fields. In color, in height, the Iowa corn fields are something we can surely be plenty proud of. Remember Iowa, that's where the tall corn grows. And there's plenty truth and poetry in that statement. Brucellosis Test Week Of July 25 The fourth county wide Brucel- losis ring test will be conducted, in Kossuth C'puiity (.hiring the week of July 2">, according to Dean Barnes, county extension director. Milk and cream samples will be picked up at every milk or cream receiving station in Kossuth County. The samples will be tested by technicians from the Iowa Department of Agriculture. The results of the ring test will be mailed to each individual farmer. Barnes states that the Iowa Department of Agriculture is now certifying herds as "Brucel- losis Accredited" it they have three consecutive clean ring tests. The ring le.-i i., made on a compoMte sample of milk or cream from the entire herd, therefore, tells only if there is Brucellosis present in the herd and can't tell the tanner which cow or cows aie ini'i cted. A farmer who get.s a positive ring test should consult hi.^ veterinarian Family Picnics At St. Benedict And St. Joe St. Benedict — On July 4, 35 people gathered at the Philip Arndorfer home for a picnic.
