Tidbits From Fve/yn When I said in this column I wondered how hardanger was spelled, I wasn't prepared for the answer and datu on the "fancy work." It was Tom Akra who called one afternoon, bringing with him a copy of n National Geographic of a few months ago. lUirdangcr gets its name from a town in Norway, a town familiar to Tom for it is his old home. To those who are not familiar with the needle work, it is sort of a weaving over drawn threads. It is used in trimming on frocks too. a thing I didn't know till I saw pictures of women and children with dresses mentioned as typical. * » « Tom was especially interested in the maga/ine for it had many pictures of familiar places. His story was an interesting one and began with data on his father, a sea-going man for 30 years. The life of a sailor became a weary one and he decided to become a "land lubber". He bought, on acreage and began growing fruit trees. Tom reflected the orderly methods of his father, who clear- See Large Ad in the FARM & HOME SECTION WE HAVE THE GENUINE TOP QUALITY V/INDOW MATERIALS HOID IN HEAT-KEEP OUT COID Ch«*p«r lh»« flat* - Per Storm O«*rt A w*ndo«t, PorchCncfctvrt FLEX 0 GLASS LASS-ONlT PUSTIGLASS WYRO GLASS EH-GlASS HALL-STRAHORN HARDWARE eel the fields and put things ship- >liapp. One does not think of Norway as fruit country but Tom said it grows in abundance and great variety. He mentioned cherries in particular and said it is a "second California" as to the many fruits grown. * * * Tom came io ihe United Slates in 1893 locating near Sioux Falls, S. D., where an uncle and aunt lived. The relatives had been here many years, the uncle had served in the Civil War, having been hired to take'the place of some one else. (Seems like an odd arrangement for the USA army, but that's what Tom said) • * * Before coming to the United States, Tom went to Bergen, Norway and there took lessons in English from a lady linguist. This enabled him to get a job in a hotel where tourists came by the thousands. He was able to converse with the Americans who are the best tourists when $5 to the continental customer is boosted to $10 for the Americans. Cigar? are boosted in proportion. The Americans believed then, as 1 think they do now, if a commodity isn't high price it's no good. Not only did Tom meet the trains, lie was in charge of liquors as he could read the labels and with his English, could converse with the customer arid aid him in his choice. The wine cellars were indeed something to see. » * * When I read Ihe Tom Powell, editor of the Anamosa.paper item on tracking down smells. I was reminded of a similar circumstance. I was sitting 'on the little stoop we had .years ago at the: front door when a smell began interfering with my power of concentration on,the book I was reading. My first thought was that it was a dead animal. Grandfather Cady was of the same opinion. Careful investigation g'ave that area an O.K. so the search was concentrated on the cellar. Nothing unusual was re- 4 I w • • \ QUALITY FURNITURE PRICES YOU CAN AFFORD TO PAY We Ask Only That You Look Over Our Store and Stock Before You Buy and COMPARE PRICE & QUALITY!

I walked out toward the parking and the smell grew warse at each step. And there I discovered the offender. It was an cozy, gooey toad stool, the pointed variety, and the flies were having a holiday. « * * Mrs Edgar Campbell's parents, Mr and Mrs Homer Young recently returned to their home at Garner following a trip which wasn't entirely successful. They had planned to go to Seattle, Wash., to visit the other daughter, Doris, a registered nurse. Mi- Young became sick so they stopped at Pier, Colo., waited till he had recovered and came back home. Doris is due for a visit here in the spring, but it's a long time to wait. » * * After all, "there's no place like home," and as alluring as Hawaii may be, the Louis Verveers are back in Illinois. Mrs Verveer will be best remembered as Janet Zerfasp. It was about a couple of years ago they moved from Chicago to Honolulu. The change was too great, especially considering the children, and now they arc back. Mr Verveer is at his former wor,k, and they have purchased a home in Downer's Grove. Welcome home! * • • Mr and Mrs Edgar Campbell are being visited by the former's brother-in-law and sister, Mr and Mrs Ray Riley of Fort Worth, Tex. Mr Riley is a barber on the campus and being confined indoors so much, is desirous of some hunting trips and excursions in Ihe big out-doors. And perhaps surmouting that is the hope that his- appotitie will return in this cool atmosphere. It has been so warm in Texas the desire for meals vanished completely. * * * It's lough when youngsters have to learn things the hard way. For instance little Silly Richards, two year old son 01 Kenneth and Sharon Godfredson. found out that a stove can be a very hot 'enemy". Every child loves to climb, and Billy, like the rest of his kind, is all over the place, especially cupboards whore cookies are kept. The cither day he had climbed to reach the cookie jar, slipped, and in his fall grabbed out to break the tumble.. His hand came down, flat, palm down on the hot burner. He was taken to » doctor ru once but the degree of his burn is not yet fully determined. * • * When Mr and Mrs Clair Thomas were on vacation to Rapids City. S. D. last summer they stayed at a tie luxe motel and oven better than the lovely apartment was a sign which read. "Free coffee any time, day or night." What a boom to coffee lovers! They came home with a -4G2 pound buffalo which divided- three ways, still makeV a powerful lot of eating. She say-; the meat is very much like beef. . •When Mabel and Livingston left for Phoenix. Ariz.. few weeks ago, Charley told Mabel to take just a few clothes ;ts they wouldn't be there long. A change in plans, and Mabel was left practically stranded. Lola Slewjrl, on Mabel's orders, is taking some extras back, to her. What a fine: chance she; missed — Siu 1 could have poured i; on Charley and said, "I'll take NEW clothes for having fooled me about the time we'd be away from home." * * * t ready tot ihe IdW*- Purdue football game!
