Algona Can you »beal this, here's a lettei; I, received .from an Upper Des' Momes reader at Whittemore: "Say, Mr., Haver, ; 1 have .been an Upper Des Molnes reader for. over 20 years and '' artiong otberj printing in the'papet* 1 also read your: bunk (or is it junk you call it) and I got a kick out of: the* ton* gue-twister stuff you had in. your column lately, and so.I decided to also hand you ,a tongue-twister and you cart print-it if you Want to. It is one that my dad/years and years ago, evolved arid it-iwas printed in an early 'edition' of the' home paper at Whittemore. No, I am not signing-my name-to this letter but I can assure you ol this—you know me 'and I -know you, though we don't each oWe the other a cent. Here it is and I thirik it's Quite clever, having to do witrr soldiers and my dad served in the arrny years and years ago: ."I saw .six short soldiers scrubbing six short shirts, six short, soldiers scrubbed and scrubbed, six short soldiers rubbed and rubbed; six short soldiers sung a song; their singing surely showed those six short shirts that six short soldiers scrubbed and scrubbed were six short shirts that Sister Susie sewed." And there you have another twister, so to speak. —o— It just looks to me like Ed Shackelford should be the president and leader of the Algona Pipe Puffing Club because on account of he sure knows his pipes and his puffing, so to speak. I find that Ed has 24 pipes, various n size and in cost, and he car- •ies four to six with him all the ;ime night and day, and he sure knows how to use them, too, because he is a good smoker and can even blow it through his nose 'n smoke clouds, so to speak.'And t's a cinch Ed should know how ;o smoke a pipe because on account of he says he has enjoyed pipe puffing for about thirty 'ears. The pipes cost runs from wo bucks to $13,50, buf the alter is one.that was given him as a present. But Ed uses the better brand of pipe tobacco and so his smoking is not of the smell sort. And Ed also has and uses the most gentlemanly stance in his smoking. The pipe between his teeth holds the most correct position. And he doesn't dash the ashes out of his pipe except in proper receptacles, never shakes his pipe on the-floor or the rugs. And 'his pipe smoking stance is of the approved sort, knows just how the pipe looks best when between his teeth, etc. Yes, I'm sure in favor of Ed taking" over the leadership in the Algona Pipe Puffers Organization, because on account of he's tops in knowing how to use a pipe, has the most aerfect stance, and has a collec- ,ion of pipes which is topmost in sipe ownership in this city, so to speak. i feul at a 60-mile that": SffeM ^MaiisrtH®F« dountild 42} «ars:wfif6h'plig^a tn fit i-. ]liheW|8Jftfe*Sff*t liifffcMow that weeft'herS fflrfies Mdittes the paviftg has been widened Mt on these stretches over a'fiO-nille going is not so ba^i BlH I stfl feelj.tttat an 80-miif gping;|6i feome of the ; old arid- Harrow"iff rough pavittg we; hfive is lib much.
