Yep, 'Iwas Monday evening thiit we observed Hallow-fen as PCT usual and as it has been observed for hundreds of years. No. it isn't by way of any church Soing any more. Now it is an evening of "tricks or treats" observed largely by the younger ones. And I remember, and you probably do too, when it was not only just tricks or treats but a general observance of building transformations and building tipping galore. And I remember one year (yes, that's quite a number of years, by the way) when I RUSS & KY'S FIX-IT SHOP Bring Your Mower (POWER OR HAND) IN AT END OF SEASON Let Us Sharpen It Overhaul & Tune Engine and Clean It Up And We Will Store It FREE OF CHARGE Until You Want It Next Spring After a season of cutting, your mower (power or hand) probably needs some tuning up — at least a sharpening. Fetch it now to Russ & Ky's Fix-it Shop, where we'll put it in the best of shape during our slack lime, and more than that — we'll STORE IT FOR YOU ALL WINTER FREE OF CHAJRGE! Your mower will be all ready to go then ai the iim call of Spring in 1956! Russ & Ky's Fix-it Shop On Main St. one block north of Milwaukee Depot was one of a gang of teen-agers and we hauled a gent's buggy to the top of one of the store buildings on the main drag. And I remember another time when the gang took to the country three miles and tipped over the hog house on a farm. And I remember another time when the gang took a trip of two 'miles to the country and released the horse? of a farmer and of the seven horses there was one found 6 miles from the farm. And I remember another time when the town well was filled with leaves. But this time the town officials got busy and the Hallow-een pranksters were checked up and there were 11 youngsters appeared before the council and they were fined $1 each. Yep, Hall- ow-een is a night of observance, seemingly just the opposite 01 the hallow angle, so to speak. However, I do believe that the observance of the evening-has improved materially today as compared with those of the past years. At least let's hope so. —o— Winter is beginning to slip in on us. Just the other clay we had our first snow and it looks as though the snow will be just as white as always. And I am making plans to have some of the anti-freeze dope put in the car and I have started to look for the chains we put on the wheels during the stormy winter months, so to speak. It was just the .ither night that I heard over the radio that a weather prophet on national reputation made the tatument that the coming win- IIT was going to be a fright with cold and blizzards and that they would last well up into March. I hope he's all wet about that. However, it seems to be the general feeling an the part of everyone that we are due to xperienee a real old-time winter, with snow and sleet and ice and blizzards and everything of winter meaure in big numbers, so to speak. Well, it's a cinch we can expect some* thing because on account of if you remember we sure had a reasonably decent winter last year. No big snow storms, no way low freezing temperature? and a lot of sunshine all along. While the colder season dragged well into late April there was no really bad winter weather, so to speak. But just the same, don't take any chances, get your car doped with the anti-frecze, and have your chains ready when you may need them. To be honest with you I just don't have the least bit of love for the winter months, as compared with the respect and regard I have for the summer months. How about you? Do you like furnace fuel expense or the shoveling of snow off your sidewalk, etc. etc? Well, that's what I thought too, they're a huge nuisance, so to speak. —o— Well, it won't be long now, until we go to the polls and do our marking on the ballot for city officials and I'm looking forward to that clay because on account of it's) going to be fun to vote and especially is it going to be fun to count the votes cast for the six gents candidates for mayor. I'll bet Algona is the only town in the state with such a line-up of candidates for mayor. And the fact that there arc six candidates is going to bring out the vote, you tell 'm. Many folks who hardly ever bother to vote at a city election will turn out this time because on account of they are going'to vote for their favor- ite candidate to off-set the vote for one of the other candidates. Yep, it's going to be a lot of fun in Algona November 8th, when we elect one of the six gents to take over the mayor's office. It sure isn't often that a city office takes on so much competition, six candidates, as is the case here this year. However, I still maintain that the gents who are the candidates for the office of mayor are all well known, are popular, and considered plenty competent to take on the duties of mayor- ship, and that is what will bring out the vote on ^Tovember 8th. VM, by ih* war- *h»f« af* thf*ft highly popular days in November, the first our city election, second Armistice Day and third Thanksgiving Day. But I still claim to like the latter day the best because on account of I sure love turkey and all of the trimmings, so to speak. NEED PRINTING? GOOD work at fair prices at the Upper Des Moines Pub.
