Tidbits From Evelyn Oh, h6w I would like to dupli- r.,1e the vacation Esther Quinby has just completed. It -took her right to the heart of our American history, Washington, D. C., Philadelphia. Boston, Concord. Jamestown, Williamsburg, Bran- dvwinc. and then to Niagara Falls;. All of these places ar? rich in American history and Ihe charm of Colonial flays ha? 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 mv favorite book. « • * A letler 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 buses were crowded, so much that she had to stand foi 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 having 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 Coiwcll Bros., Auctioneers UU-29-30 residents here who will be well remembered. Mr Vaughn has been with Swift & Co. a number of years and has been Jrans- fcn ed from Unit. 1 to time a c ~ 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 arc to be guests of Mr and Mrs Melvin Olson this week. * * * Members of Ihe "Hen 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 of weeks at Houston and Wichita and now Mrs Grilles has gone to Augusta. \Vis.. for a few weeks visit witli 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 his wife are coining 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 al what science produces. And what a boon it is to those whose needs aie met. I saw Mr Mahono> (John) on the street not long ago. At the time I didn't know who he was nor what hi* 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. It was his wife who explained Mr Mahoney had undergone throat surge: y some time ago which k-ft him with no voice-box. All he doi s with this talking aid is t>> form the words — there is absolutely no sound corning from his lips, but this speaking tube pi-./kn up the word formation and transmits via batteries so that conversation is curried on in a highly satisfactory manner. Think of what that means to Mr Mahoney. Ed Ostrum recently and plays in the i~ «ri honor, visiled his parents told them he now Mankato band. It or only really good musicians aic atvop'cd. "Like father, like son", for Frank was an ,v.-co!".p]jshed drummer and tr;ip< player in his day. * * « The Paul Palmers are delighted to learn thai their son Jim. is headed for the States and Nh"uki be "ii tin- west coast in a f.'-.v weeks He is on the USS Hi vce CanV'in which has bee;; ' ::-. and ai-.u.'-.d Japan the past few month- T.> change the mono- t.'ny lie asked '.<•'.' shore duty ?nd liked i! very much.

She is an energetic woman and 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 into stride on it. and now comes this. » * « I can sympathize 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 fortunate I am sure, for hts wa.- brought on by expo.nire. He was out in a chilling rain, and found himself with aching joints anc! a bundle of sore joints. In fact, till you have a dose of it you have the usual number of muscl«. : and bones, but WHEN it catche up with you, you'- joints arc multiplied by ten at leas;t. and believe me, you are well aware of every one of them. * * * Mrs A. J. Eason has returned from Akron, Ohio, where shi. visited her brother and sister-in law. We have- this interest in common, for it i.- near Akron that I visited my little town of Pen insula. home of the Cadys befon. they braved the "wild west'' and came to live in it. I had a CHK' from her while she was gone and she had gone for a ride one even int; on the outer edges of Akror and then, all at once they were in Peninsula, which goes to show how close a neighbor it is. I has been four years s;nce I wa there. I am always afraid sonv one will get the i-.lea of making :'. modern. I want it kept just i, •• is. which is almost without change of any kind since my father and his family came here in 1878 or thereabouts and Dad wa- a laci around fourteen. * 4 f: You should see the nice fenced in area the Dale Carvers hav< for their younger son. It is r- large he isn't aware he's fenced in. and what a satisfaction i' must he to his parents t > know i he is safe from cars at a very | busy street corner.
