Tidbits From Evelyn What a nice surprise it was lo j have a phone call and hear my cousin, Edwin Cady. say he was back from the airplane trip to State College, Pa., and would leave Houston Wednesday for Al- iiona. Oh, if it would RAIN and cool off before he gels here. He hns so much heat to contend with in Texas, he always looks io Iowa for a cooling off period. * * * Remember thai old song which goes this way—when a lover was trying to win favor with his beloved? He sings, "I'll buy you a second hand piano that you play with both your feet." Well, I don't suppose John Dreesman was wheedeling his wife, but they do have a player piano in the basement recreation room Mrs Dreesman says she's not sure she's happy about the whole thing. 1 told her I wished I was a neighbor. I'd like to hear it. I wish Lizzie Post would get their 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 MORE the spraying would do away with all siu:h pests. There's just no justice- -llie heat by day and mosquitoes by evening when one wants so sit in the cool of the back poreh. 4 * " * Added to the Sunbeam frying pan I mentioned last week as a birthday gift, let me add my thanks lo Vehria llagg for a beautiful cake and the ice cream to go with it. "treats" by Mabel Livingston, a box of greetings cards, the cleverest I've seen, from Becky and Janet Jcrgenson, and many birthday greetings. Thanks to each of you for remembering. * * * When Esther Helberg entertained the "Eight Specs" card club--a 2 tables membership, she invited three guests, who with Lela Stewart, a former member were to make the third table. Faie, 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 But- afol Center to convalesce at the home of her daughter, Mrs Charles Reekers. Mrs C. H. Casey and children, former residents here till a couple of years ago. came up from ( Phoenix, Ariz., recently. While; i 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. Didir't want to le.'.vo Phoenix that long. Mrs Jake Hoibauer. mother of Mrs Casey of Buffalo Center, went back with tile family and after a rosonable length of time there. i| she likes it, she will move there feed Egg production up!

The cup that cheers might have made him a widower. « * « Hazel Vera says Frank is worse than the kids when it comes fair time. He goes early and stays late at the fair and if anyone sees more than he does, she'd liko 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 they like to play too. * * * Ann Fcchner and her niece, Mrs Robert Carr and two daughters recently were at Minneapolis. Ann \Vas on a buying trip and took the rest (or companionship, The little girls were thrilled with hotel life 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. Mr ahd Mrs Wafte* Boekholf have returned from a wonderful vacation at Mackinac, Can., north of Winnipeg. They visited Mr and Mrs Eiso Brink who farm in what is called the Bush country. One area in the mountains was called the play-land of Canada, with beautiful lakes, a Wishing well fed by mountains springs, Clear Lake and Lake Dauphin, and ont tiling of particular interest was an old-time farm sale. It was only 51 degrees at Winnipeg. Think of the delight of a temperature like that—against our 95 lo 99. • * « Mrs Don Biersiedt has been having troubles but the end is Hearing now.' She was on vacation at Rapids City, S. D. visiting relatives. At a lodge they hired 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 UHJ close to Mrs Bierstedt's mount and the animal kicked back at the offender, throwing Mrs Bierstedt The arm was given first aid and was thought not lo be broken Later examination and x-ray proved the contrary. Luckily it was her left arm. * • • Later —My cousin has come 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." I think 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 so 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 a great extent, for I gel so much pleasure hearing his music. I!' 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 lo coax him to stay here Sunday and play at the church. As it is, I'm lonesome with him gone, wistful for his music, bul pleased that he will at long last be seeing Harry. 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, lie had planned on attending the fair too. Instead we went to see "The Lady and the Tramp." It was ;i cute picture but I remark 1 ed, "Can you imagine us, two old people being amused by such a juvenile picture?" • • • Whew! I wonder how much air conditioners cost. t almost forgot id do my bragg- ng. I sent some fancy' work lo .ho fair, won a couple of firsts, a second and a third. One fifst also received a blue ribbon from the National Crochet contest which makes me eligible for the 'big money" (My chest measures 100 inches.)
