Mrs Dreesman says she's not sure she s happy about the whole thing. 1 told her I 1 wished I was a neighbor. I'd like to hear it. I wish Lizzie ' Post would get then- piano fixed. , It is a player—the piano, is in good shape except that mechanical part—and she lives close by where I could slip over and hear all the good old tunes I heard on it years ago. •«,-'.« • Imelda Engesser has been at Lansing visiting relatives and friends. She says they have the largest variety of mosquitoes she ever had the bad luck to meet up with. I've noticed the ones around here are a vigorous type too. What they may lack in size, they make up in bite. I .thought feed Egg production up! Feed costs down when you use "4x4" Poultry Supplements with your home-grown grains. Make your own mash with "4x4" Poultry Concentrate. Or feed "4x4" Poultry Balancer, free-choice. For high egg production... to-hit the high early markets, put your flock on "4x4" today. Let me show you why it will pay. Eugene M.

Fate, in the shape of a troublesome tooth stepped in, and -instead of having fun, Lela landed in Mason City where she'had oral surgery. She went to Buf- afol Center to convalesce at the home of her daughter, Mrs Charles Reckers. * ' Mrs C. H. Casey and children, former residents here till a couple of years ago, came up from Phoenix, Ariz., recently. While here they were house guests of Mr and Mrs Ernest Kearney. The family is completely sold on Phoenix. In fact Mr Casey didn't even care to come up with the family. Didn't want to lec-ve Phoenix that long. Mrs Jake Hofbauer, mother of Mrs Casey of Buffalo Center, went back with the family and after a resonable length of yme there, Jf she likes it, she will move there too. r * » Beware all ye who have a bottle of spirits around and want to hide it.

The cup that cheers might have made him a widower. Hazel Vera says Frank is worse than the kids when it,comes fail- time. He goes early and stays late at the fair and if anyone «ees more than he does, she'd like to know who it is. Taking away Bingo has spoiled the fair for numberless people. Such fuddy- duddy legislators. If they'd tell the truth, I'll bet thjsy like to play too. * . * * ' Ann Fechner and her niece, Mrs Robert Can-'and two daughters ;i r^qetJtl.y were at Minneapolis. Ann was on a buying trip and took the rest for companionship, The little girls were thrilled with hotel lif* and were especially intrigued by the bell-hops. So much so they wanted their daddy to carry the suit cases like the hotel boys did. ; iMr iafcd Mta jWallw BotkhoUi have'returned ffb'rh a wonderfur vacation at Mack)nac, Can., north, of Winhipeg.

She was on vacation at Rapids City, S.-D., visiting; relatives. 'At a lodge they hh'tid horses for a trail ride. The rule, is that the horses be kept the' length of an animal apart on the trail but a ten year old lad did, not obey.' His horse got too close to Mrs Bierstedt's mount and the animal kicked back at the offender, throwing Mrs Bierstedt., The arm wassglven first aid dncf was thought not to be broken., Later examination and -x-ray proved the contrary.: Luckily it was her left arm. ,>'• i • » •. Laler •—My cousin 'has coma and gone and 'I'm • in the "dog house" with several friends who asked me with an edge to their voices. "Why wasn't he at the organ in our church Sunday morning." 1 ttiink we have become spoiled. .. For several years When he visits me he has been guest organist at the Methodist or Congregational churches. His music is sb greatly enjoyed his visits have been looked forward to. This year I resolved he was not going to have his vacation broken into-by doing a "postmans holiday." Then I weakend to ft great extent, for I get so much pleasure hearing his music. If it hadn't been that he could visit our cousin Harry Goddard at Wichita if he left on the Sunday morning bus, spend Monday with his brother, Dr. Cady at Mason City, thence to Wichita to see his cousin whom he has not seen in 35 years and who has wanted so much to see him, I'd have weakened and been selfish enough to coax him to stay here Sunday and play at the church. As it is, I'm lonesome with him gone, wistful for his music, but pleased that he will at long last be seeing Harry. 1 « • • I suppose like I, many ol you didn't get to the fair. I had planned to but the heat was too much for me. Edwin (the Houston cousin is always hopeful of cool weather here, but he was certainly disappointed this time. He had planned on attending the fair too. Instead we went to see. "The Lady and the Tramp." , It was a cute picture but I remarked, "Can you imagine us, two old people being amused by such a juvenile picture?" • • • Whewl I wonder how much air conditioners cost. , t C I'sent sttme fane? wdr the fair, won a couftle ot ,firsts, a''second and a third.
