Tidbits From Evelyn 1 reported last week on Mabel Livingston's condition, not enough clothed fdl 1 so long a stay in Phoenix, Ariz. Hazel y era was worse off. 'When she and Frank went • to Waterloo recently to spend a week with their son-in- law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Melvin Mutchinson, the suit case was: packed all right, but Frank had forgotten to put it in the ear. And since there was no one going to Algona, Hazel had a good excuse to buy a few things. Wives —he*ed this and pull the same stunt. _ The Del Carvers Hate purchased a trailer house with next sum* met- vacation in mind. When I saw it standing iri ;their yard, of course my curiosity .got 'the better of mo and I immediately phoned to learn what it was all about. I thought perhaps a relative had pulled in for the winter. Mrs Carver said they were remodeling the interior and every now and then I hear the rup-a- tap-lap of a hammer.

Mrs Max Blast told me she had celebrated her wedding anniversary this year, by having some ;3i-ray pfctufes taken. I asked her if she thought this picture on, the thirtieth anniversary resembled the bride of so rriany years ago.. Nevertheless > the day ended pleasantly with her son- in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Burton Varcoe and children ^o; Emmetsburg joining them for six o'clock .dinner, Mrs Varcoe' bririg- ing most of the food. * * » The irony of fate — The morn ing of the burial service for the late Carrie Wernert'her nephew Charles Sweeney and Wife came from Cedar Rapids, almost too late. They had known she was in poor health but had received no word of her death as they had been away from home. The previous week they had lost a little eight year old daughter and had taken a little trip to get their nerves settled. * * * . When I phoned Mrs William Ankenbatter Sr., for , possible news the other morning, she replied that she 'might have news — important news before long. The stork was hovering over her son William Junior's home, in fact the bird had been expected a fortnight ago. But it looked as though he really was getting around to delivering his package this time and Mrs William Jr.., was at that moment at St. Ann hospital to meet Sir Stork. Having heard nothing the following morning, I again phoned Mrs A. No one answered, but an hour or so afterward, My phone rang and it was the big news. A son William Ray had been left on the "doorsteps" of the William A's Junior. * * * There was rather an odd item on postal withdrawals recently intimating it was hard to understand why that department was almost nil. Why shucks — it does not take a "Philadelphia lawyer" to answer that one. It is, my understanding other deposits pay 3 per cent to the P. O's 2, I believe it is. Surely the "bigwigs" at the office didn't really have to ponder the question. * * « It's kinda cozy when. "Pa" and "Ma" can be hospitalized at the same time. I don't suppose hospital rules allow husbands and wives to share the same room, but it is comforting to know the other is close at hand. Such is the case of Mr and Mrs W. Holldorf, both of whom are at a Rochester hospital. He had surgery for a hernia and she had her gall bladder removed. , » . I * Dr and Mrs M. G. Bourne really "lived it up" on a recent weekend.
