Tidbifs From Evelyn It is easy to do a column when one has had a trip to write about, but when one comes down to earth, so to speak, one often has to "dig" to find material. I am in that state this morning. There is one point however that was omitted, one which I think is in- terestin'g and certainly is unusual. At Davenport we were laken to a drive-in for supper. There is a dining room if one wishes to use il, but there were also plenty of/ spaces for those who prefer eating in their car. A roof covered the area where about eight cars could be placed facing a center "aisle" for use of the car hops, each. car in a stall. Over, this "stall" was a heater contraption fastened to the roof which is said to be able to heat the outdoors even in twenty degree below temperature. It is said to be only one of two in the U. S. A. Surely such a gadget merits mention and I don't think it-has been publicized here. Davenport had a big write-up on it at the time of installation. And so farewell to summer and a wonderful vacation trip, or trips. For I must not forget the one to Houston last May. What a long time ago it seems. * *' * Little Diane Allen, daughter of Mr and Mrs Bill Allen has become tooth conscious as the outcome of having Some dental work done and a drill used. She announced to her family recently that she had to have all her teeth drilled by Friday for inspection. From this her astrunded parents interpreted the real facts — there was to be FIRE DRILL and every child was to do their part handsomely. Another child story -* Mot long after school had begun We Saw David Stienblock in the role of new traffic cop. He was out here on our corner directing cars in a most official manner. It is the outcome of school instructions, of course, and since this Is his firs^ year, everything told him makes quite an impression. I might add he was doing a really professional job. * * " This is a tale about an adult— rather a typical story, for this is one of Algoha's busiest women, and in haste, she has oft come a "cropper." I won't name her »— she probably will appreciate my consideration -r- but here's the story. She had been told to pin curl her hair, use hair spray oh it and by the time she'd be out of the bath, she could take her hair down and would be ready to arrange in curls or waves as she saw fit. But bless my soul— in her haste she gave her hair a very generous treatment with a spray of "air freshener," followed by a shampoo of course, and a treatment of "hair spray" as a finale. *. * * When I phoned to* news the other day Mrs Rusk was in the yard trying to remove string from the lawn mower. I thought of a playful kitten and a: ball of yarn. I've been kept busy in years past untangling string a pet has messed up in fine shape. There's a test of patience, be it mowers or kittens. . *' * * Mrs Glen Strayer told me she has been at the lakes "all by herself," I .asked, "To get away from it aH?" Well, I guess it's a In Mi nnea ANDREWS ^•\ Hotel you'll be glad you did In the very center of the city- near depots, (theaters, wholesale district and all shopping.

Long, Mgr. ^ cure for "nefves" for some, but I'd get this jitters being somewhere all by myself, but everyone to his own notions. 1 always think of Byrd down there at the South Pole all alone such a remote place and no chance of anyone getting to him if needed —I'd have thought he'd have lost his mind. Probably most, of ihe dollars won oh Lucky Dollar days have changed handsxmany times since being won, but Mrs HarVey Reid is keeping her's "for luck." I have an old three cent piece which mother had kept many years. I am always hoping some one will offer me a fabulous sum for it. Do I hear ahy bids? • * * Do any of you women readers remember hardanger, or hardun- ger? I don't remember how it is spelled. It really should be HUMDINGER for it is just that — beautiful hand work, a combination of weaving and all-over em- Hroidery. I used to see pieces of it at Lucille Grose's .home. Her mother had made several lovely pieces. The other evening I was dinner guest at Mr and Mrs Glen Raney's. Ruth had a lunch cloth with hardanger border—one of the lovliest pieces of fancy work I've ever seen. It was made by the late Lettie Matson. The art of making it should be Revived. After repeated questions about "my time" which is also "youi tirne" I will repeat. I do not start my work till 9 o'clock. That gives housewives time to get the children off to school and the morning work under way. Also gives me time for a leisurely breakfast, for I do not get up till 8:15 or 8:30.1 take'a breather from 11:30 till 1—this is also a breather for the housewife who by that time is knee deep in lunch preparations. I work from 1 till 4—then call it a day and usually rest from 4 till 5 when my dinner is served. I dp not work Wednesday or Thursday. Oh, occasionally I use an hour or two Wedhesday a.m. if I haven't sufficient material. With this schedule I am free of the phone a part of the time, and by using it you know where I can be reached. If I do a show Monday afternoon, as I quite often' do, then I use Wednesday A.M. to make up. I hope I've made this clear to all of you who have asked about it. - • ». • * Six of us spent Wednesday at Clear Lake and three are avid fisherwomen. Unfortunately it was not a day for it—wind in the wrong direction or something, and there was never so much as a nibble. The only fish they contacted was a couple of them left on the beach to be found by a stray cat, or what ever likes decomposed fish. The lines were left on the docks and after awhile "SOMETHING" came along that had a bobber attached. Two of the women were all for wading out and bringing it in. But when a "sea monster" was suggested, the women retreated. Women talk a lot about dieting, but if you could have seen that table loaded with a great variety of food, you'd think, and rightly, that all the women were out of bounds that day. And you should have seen me with sacks pulled over my shoes. It had rained a little and the yard was quite muddy, and with thin Beverly Koin To Wed On Dec. 27 Mr and Mrs Edward Kain are announcing the engagement of their daughter, Beverly Kain above, to Leonard Plaehn, son of Mrs Emma Plaehn of Reinbeck. Miss Kain is teaching kindergarten at Iowa Falls. Mr Plaehn is stationed at the Naval Air Base at Oceana, va The wedding will be December 27. cloth-topped shoes, it didn't seem like a good idea to get my feet wet, especially since I'd acquired quite a cough along with a cold. Well, whenever you need protection, use sacks. They worked perfectly. * » * A year or so ago Mr and Mrs Charles Patterson were in Old Mexico enroute to or from California, I don't recall which. At any rate, Mrs Patterson found the place so interesting she decided if the opportunity ever came, she would like to stay longer and drive over a wider territory. The opportunity has come and she and her husband, with their son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs W. E. Patterson, of Chicago, are leaving soon for a vacation there. South America has been mentioned but there are certain drawbacks to that. I wouldn't be surprised if they would make arrangements somehow and tour at least the northern portion of that continent before returning home. m » * .Summer was a "meaniee" but I'll bet there are a good many who wish right now we had some of its heat. I haven't begun to squak yet, but probably will. The usual reports on flu and colds has begun. ^ ^ ^ Mrs John Romer passed another milestone Sunday and %yas given a picnic by members of her' family, those in attendance being Alma Doan and Warren Doan of St. Paul, Minn., Carl Mcquart of Minneapolis, Minn., her brother, Irwin Beck of Vallejo, Calif., the father, William Beck and Williaiv>. Crane of Dickens and her husband and son, James. There were many others picnicing at the Ambrose Call State Park and atf were glad to circle around the 'ires. A far cry to n scant ?. lays ago. 'The day was made omplete by,A phone call from tfrs Beck's sister, Mrs Vernen ames. of Bradenton, Fla. 7 * * * Let's finish 1906 — Miss Nellie Taylor came from Sioux Falls, S. D. Monday to spend a few days visiting at the home of her parents, Mr and Mrs Joel Taylor and other relatives and old friends. The old home is the house just north of the Matthew Streits. It was made into a duplex a few years ago. As I recall, Nellie was a stenographer—at least I used to see her around the Court House a lot and she djd office work for some attorney I think.) Little Dorothy Hutchison, daughter of A. Hutchison, was ^operated on' for appendicitis by local physicians the first of the week. The operation was entirely successful.—'Henry Wadsworth and Harvey Wadsworth (his son) left for Colorado yesterday. It is expected that the latter will go down into New Mexico before coming home. Miss Mae and Ruth Palmer leave for Chicago today where Mae will resume her musical studies (vocal) and Ruth will enter Evanston University. — Among the pilgrims to the Minnesota state fair last week were Roy Me Gethchie, John P. Byson, Louis Nelson and C. E. Lamp- pright. Mr Me Gethchie was American Express agent—or ai least he worked there and olc timers like I will remember seeing him deliver express in a low hung, big two wheeled cart I took a ride in it once—a hal- lowe'en prank, hauled by Earl Crane to a party at Ethel (Shortie) Lowe's.

North street, has been appointed chairman for the Iowa Children's Home Society campaign, which will be conducted here Oct. 1-15, according to an announcement by Homer Jewctt, president of the society. Algonans are being asked to support the society programs through generous donations so it might continue the work of caring for neglected or abandoned children through adoptive or boarding home care. Mrs Rueb will name chairmen throughout the town to assist her during the drive. Algona's goal, is $631, the amount raised last year. Iowa Children's Home Society, founded in 1888, has provided care for more than £0,000 children. The society operates on the theory that adoptive or family boarding home care for unfortunate children is preferable to an institution or asylum. The methods have demonstrated outstanding results' through- 'the years, according to Mrs Rueb.
