Dodge, Algona interests have separated them iwhile. It was nice too, to be at the lakes when our hottest weath- ir overtook us. » * * 1 have a trip coming up, a sur>rise was arranged for me by the A. L. Longs of Davenport, who know I have been sort of lankering for an airplane ride for years and years. Oh, it won't oe a long ride, just over town 1 suppose, but that will satisfy my •juriousily and curb that yen. 3h yes, Lizzie Post is going up with me. II is to happen as' ;oon as Bob McCullough has time We had one date arranged bu Lizzie couldn't make it at tha time, so it was postponed. I'l give you my impressions latoi A'hen the trip is an Accomplished fact. * * * I think it would be a fine' idea f some dress manufacturers would come up with frocks with detachable sleeves. -Yesterday it was so hot I decided to do 'away with sleeves in a house dress—so snip snip went my scissors, and o, there was a cool dress just to my needs. Today a deliciously ool breeze has made me wish I iad those sleeves in again. * * *' Mrs Bridget Tobin called' me Revival THE GREAT North Iowa Fair MASON CITY, IOWA Aug. 9 thru 14 \ 6 Big Afternoons & Evenings 20th CENTURY SHOWS v ON THE MIDWAY L.

Sargent & Co "Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" A revival series began here July 28, with Bet. Harry Carlsen, of Carbondale, Pennsylvania, as the special speaker in this revival campaign, at the Church of The Nazarene. , Mr Carlsen is an excellent speaker and entertainer. He is pictured above with his wife, who assists him. • <" • . Both Rev. and Mrs Harry Carlsen are instrumentalists and also have a choice selection of readings, Vocal solos, and duets. Mr and Mrs Carlsen are Nazarenes and have traveled throughout the United States in Various churches, ' • Mrs Carlsen is one of the countries outstanding gospel pianists, She has also traveled in Europe. The Carlsens have spent some time in the field of radio and have been sponsored by some outstanding commercial groups. ' • • to tell me about her vacation. She went to Des Moines and there joined her niece, Lorraine Tierney, who took her via auto to i^orfolk, Va., where they visitec Lorraine's nephew and family, Mr and Mrs Craig Tierney. Craig s in the navy but his sea time will expire in October. He had been living in Chicago and will •eturn there. Mrs Tobin said she lad never traveled extensively so the 3300 miles trip was, most enjoyable. She loved going over he Mississippi bridge—and in pits of the many times I have gone over it, it is still a thrill. * * * Other Vacationers' are Dr. and rtrs -F.,E. Sawyer. With friends, Mr and Mrs T. A. Olson of Houson, they are at Keiiora, Ontario, Canada. A card to me from Mrs Sawyer said, "So many tourists it is difficult to find lodging." The scenery is beautiful." I hope it was cool there. The Leighton Misbachs have returned from Winnipeg, Canada. Mrs Misbach said they slept under blankets every night. Mrs Nell McCall has returned from a vacation in Colorado. She reports the -weather was so cold potatoes were frozen. (Look out for a rise in prices now) Days were quite warm however. What a freakish thing weather is. • * * We read of horrors in the papers but until we hear of some one who is near to them, it doesn't make the impression on us it does when we know of relationships. Mrs Don Prieskorn is a cousin of the late little Donna Sue Davis, who was abducted and slain at Sioux City recently. Her mother and Mrs Prieskorn are first cousins. » * * Talk about the "luck of the Irish." Mrs Matthew Streit and I were talking recently about drawings and money and luck in general. She said few families could top this. Sue fa sister-in- law of hers. I believe) won a car at Sibley not too long ago in the month of August or September. In October the same year Fred, brother of. her husband "Matt", also won a car. » * » Speaking of luck—Mrs Edgar Campbell is wondering if the eight four leaf clovers she found while hanging out the family wash recently means extra good luck. Maybe il was luck that it was a fine- day. Or luck that she was able to do the washing—Oh there are lots of angles of luck * » « What do you think of Bimbo for a nickname? Kinda cute isn't it—but I wonder what Dawn Witwicki will think of it when she reaches young womanhood. That's the trouble, they cling all through the years. I know of a "Butch" —Must people don't know he has another name. Likewise there is a Tools I know of, two of them in fact, and a Babe which is certainly a misnomer for he's a big hulk of a man who il! fits Babe. I have know an Evelyn who has been Peggy all through the years. By moving out of town "Katz" Hose-wall finally became the real Hjalmer and "Hump" King became the natural Horace. This is a wide field I've barely touched but it comes as a warning to parents (who don't care what I think). If you don't want nicknames, don't start them. * i » This lale might have had a different end if a bed hadn't been placed where it was and it could easily have spelled disaster for Kmma Dt-hnert. The other day she was reaching the top of a clo.set where ihe had stored some serving trays. She was on a su-p-stool to reach them and as she stepped down, her foot landed on something .suit. Thinking her pet parakeet Dickie who was flying about the room had some way gotten under her foot, she swerv- ed aside to avoid hurting him —only to find herself flat on her back on the bed. And it wasn't Dickie she had stepped on-—it was her bed spread which hangs down at the corners. Edna Mitchell and her son Carroll, have, just returned! from a nice vacation .too. Her son Willard, and daughter Marjorie, Mrs Kenneth Olympius sent them the round-fare tickets and 'they left June 5 for Long Beach and Los Angeles. They returned home Monday, July 18, a nice length of time to "do" California. Willard drives a greyhound bus and it was by bus and scenic cruiser they made the trip. Among the interesting happenings • was Mrs Mitchell's appearance on T.V., the "Queen for a Day" program. But in spite of the beauty and glamour of California, Mrs Mitchell says she would not care to live there. I mustn't forget to mention they attended a Lawrence Welk program and saw Dick Dale. Dick and her children were friends when they were youngsters and Dick lived here. To hear the jrtjgram almost persuades me to Duy a T.V., though'so far I'v.e been v?ry cold to the idea. • » • Summer is flitting away too apidly and one is aware of it with the arrival of the fall Montomery Ward and Sears and Roebuck catalogues. Another sign s the robins not waking one at daylight with their cheerful and energetic warbling. The families are raised, the year's work is over. Cicadas sing in the trees— or whatever they are.

I've wondered for some time why the dime stores here didn't follow the pattern of other :owns — Mason City, Fairmont, and the larger places have had hem for years. American people ike to eat (so do other nations as far as that goes) and now it would be an idea if we'd have he sidewalk cafes a la France. 1906 Memories Mayor W. K.
