Tidbits From Evelyn Oh, how I would like to duplicate the vacation Eslher Quinby has just completed. It took her right to the heart of our American history, Washington, D. C Philadelphia, Boston, Concord Jamestown, Williamsburg, Brandywine, and then to. Niagara Falls. .All of these places are rich in American history and the charm of Colonial days has always gripped me. She was in Louisa May Alcott's home, the place I've yearned to see all my life, for her "Little Women" still remains my favorite book * * * A letter from Mrs Gilles says she had a wonderful trip to Augusta, got there four hours sooner than expected, but her meals that day < were sketchy- no chance to grab a lunch, so it was lucky she took a sandwicn with her. This is vacation time, there is no doubt of it she says, for the biises were crowded, so much that she had to stand for a short time. Then a girl gave her her seat and sat on the arm of it till there was a vacant place. Esther and I are glad she is hav-. mg a nice time, but it's a bit lonesome with one of the occupants of the "Hen House" awav. * • • * Things are "just ducky" for Mr and Mrs Ted Vaughn, former Well Drilling and Jeep-Ditching Contact CLETUS F.

THIS FARM IS WELL LOCATED AND IN GOOD STATE OF PRODUCTION Mrs. Francis Pfeffer OWNER Colwell Bros., Auctioneers 28-29-30 residents here who will be wel. remembered. Mr Vaughn has been With Swift & Co. a number of years. and has been transferred from tlmq to time as business warranted. They now live at Alma, Mich., and he is in charge of a 40,000 ducks project. I suppose that means from hatching to marketing. Mr and Mrs Vaughn are to be guests ot Mr and Mrs Melvin Olson this Week. * * » Members of the "Heft House have done pretty well on Vacations this year. First Esther Benson spent a few days at her former home in Park Rapids, Minn., then I took off for a couple ol weeks at Houston and Wichita and now Mrs Gilles has 'gone to Augusta, Wis., for a few weeks visit With her sister, Mrs Edith" Miller. It has been a "red letter" year for me. Added to my very nice vacation, I've had a visit from. my. cousin, Melvin Henderson and family and in mid-August my cousin, Edwin Cady and h'is wife are coming from Houston. Melvin said he wished I'd put in a little line to "my public" telling them that he was so sorry to have had to miss seeing many friends. It just wasn't possible to make the rounds. * * « More and more I am amazed ai what science produces. And what a boon it is to those whose needs are met. I saw Mr Mahoney (John) on the street not long ago. At the time I didn't know who he was nor what his trouble was He was using a long tube like arrangement with a small funnel shaped gadget at the end, and was conversing with a friend. II was his wife who explained Mr Mahoney had undergone throat surgery some time ago which loft him with no voice-box. All he does with this talking aid is to form the words—there is absolutely no sound coming from his lips, but this speaking tube picks up the word formation and transmits via batteries so that conversation is carried on in a highly satisfactory manner. Think of what that means to Mr Mahoney. * * * Ed Ostrum visited his parents recently and told them he now plays in the Mankato band. It is an honor, for only really good musicians are accepted. "Like father, like son", for Frank was an accomplished drummer and traps player in his day. * * * The Paul Palmers are delighted to learn that their son Jim, is headed for the States and should be on the west coast in a few weeks. He is on the USS Bryce Canyon which has been in and around Japan the past few months. To change the monotony he asked for shore duty and liked it very much. He and his brother, Bob, had been on the ship but were separated when Bob was in an autcf-accident and was not able to leave with the ship. He was assigned to the destroyer Gushing but the lads are hoping they can be- reunited ere long. They also hope arrangements can be made to have their leaves at the same time. Bob has a longer time to serve than Jim, but "it won't be long now." * * » The Hargreaves family is haying double trouble. Harry is in the veterans hospital at Des Mo'incs and has been having a series of stomach x-rays. His mother fell and broke her hip a short time ago and is in Park hospital at Mason City. She was getting along just fine, but got out of bed when the nurses were not in the room, fell and hurt her wrist. Members of her family riad been to see her, barely reached home when they were summoned back. Apparently the effects were not too serious and It is hoped this will not retard her recovery. Summertime. .. and the peaches' are creamy! f Another person who has had a disastrous fall in Lois Caldwdl. She is an energetic woman aftd likes to do Quite a little yard work. She pulled too vigorously at a little wire fencing the other day, lost balance when it gave way unexpectedly, and as result, broke her arm a little above the wrist. Of course, it would be the right arm and she is right handed. Another •> provoking thing* she had recently purchased a Hammond organ, was getting intrt striae on it, and now comes this. * * « • •..•. I can sympathise with ftay Ladendorff who is recovering from an attack of acute arthritis. It is a very painful ailment and often it takes a long time to shake it. Ray will be more f6r- tunate I am sure, for his w*aS ^brought on by exposure. He w'Ss out in a chilling rain, and found himself with aching joints arid a bundle of sore joints. In fact), till you have a dose of it you have the usual number of muscles and bones, but WHEN it catcW? up with you, your joints 'are multiplied by ten at least,* arid believe me, you are well awafre"- of every one of them. •" * * * Mrs A. J. Eason has returned from Akron, Ohio, Where grit visited her brother and sister-in-law. We have this interest in common, for it is near Akron that I visited my little town of Peninsula, home of the Cadys before they braved the "wild west" and came to live in it. I had a card from her while she was gone and she had gone for a ride one evening on the outer edges of Akron and then, all at once they were in Peninsula, -which goes to show how close a neighbor it is. II has been four years since I was there. I am always afraid some one will get the idea of making il modern. •! want it kept just as is, .which is almost, without change of any kind since my fa,- ther and his family came here in 1878 or thereabout and Dad was a lad around fourteen. .H> * * You should see the nice fenced in area the Dale Carvers have for their younger son. • It is so large he isn't aware he's fenced in, and what a satisfaction it must be to his parents to know he is safe from cars at a very busy street corner. * * * 1906 Memories Where HAS the time gone- Back in —June, 1906 the paper slated "Mrs F. S. Norton and children are visiting at the homes of her sisters at Galesburg and-New Windsor, 111." (By the Wildes'! stretch of imagination Edna and Eleanor Couldn't have 'dreamed they'd be taking un Alaskan tour 49 years later. But such is the case). (Edna is Mrs Arthur Ferguson of Keokuk. Eleanor 'is Dean of Women at the South Dakota U. at Vermillion)—"Dr. M. J. Kene.fick left for Chioagq lastr< .evening to attend the "Vn- nual commencement of Rusch medical college" (In • 1906 that item wouldn't have impressed mt= at all, but now I read it with interest for I was in Chicago years later al the Presbyterian hospital which was connected with Rusch medical school. They were actually "Joined" by corridors and t was in that buildling I had a tonsillectomy.) "Arthur. Starr has gone to Me Lean county, North Dakota, to work for his brother, Robert, during the vacation." (I remember Arthur best as guard on the basketball team. He did a sort of teetering dance—a style all his own that Zada Brunson and 1 found rather fascinating. The Starr home was the present Clari•.; Kresensky's.) "Supt J. F. Overmyer and wife leave loday for Lindsey and other points in Ohio where they will spend their summer vacation." (Too bad I did not know about his interest in Ohio too. We might have had some interesting conversations., Burt Soldier To Leave Japan Lady Borden Plantation Peach Ice Cream is here I Extra-good because it's inailo wilh extra cream ...aud it has golden peach chunks all through it!
