I was curious \:> know who was on my line and one day when I took the receiver down, I listened in, not with the idea of being nosey, but in hopes a name would be spoken where- bv 1 could know who shared my line. I was surprised to hear one woman say. "Well, I hope she's grtting an ear-full. I can hear her clock." I hung up in a hurry." my friend added. * * • Ada Malueg has more troubles taking spills in her house—1 time in the basement and a few times in other plact/s.

It takes in all four seasons. I won't give away my "paper boy" but this is too cute to keep. I have a picture of Dorothy Hagg, a very attractive young lady and when the lad collected the other day he said, "Oh.I know that girl, she clerks at Rovn's." I agreed with him that she did but was to be there only till September when she will resume her studies at the Iowa State Teachers College, Cedar Falls. He remarked how pretty she is, and I agreed enthusiastically. I said, ^Ancl j know what you're thinking. You're wishing you were old enough to dale her." To which he replied with giggle. * * * There's good fish in "them thar" waters around here, for Carl Hansen caught three nice North- erns.

The melon seeds Lizzie Post brought from Houston last June when we came home from there and planted at the home of her mother, Mrs Mary Zitttitsch have blossomed and now melons are forming. I hope the youngsters don't rood this and raid the patch. 9 6 * The "Three Muskateers" "Hazel Lusby' Lizzie Post and I) plan to take off Wednesday on one of our trips.
