6-Algefta (la.) Upper Des Melne* Thursday, Nov. 17, 1955 farinas CO •f CRRIt REElt A LH1U ol thU, • Llllie ef -mi: Not Muck of I am in receipt of a letter from one of the readers of my column (if bunk nnd this letter goes into detail as to the outstanding month of thanksgiving and I feel that those of you who read my bunk will surely enjoy this letter, it is so different than my weekly scribbling, so to speak. The writer of the letter is Mrs C. L. Pugsley and here it is: NOVEMBER The beauty of autumn is past. The- leaves have turned to brown ;,nd dropped from the trees. Now they are being swept along the streets by the winds that foretell the coming of stormy weather. The bare branches of the trees, high overhead the wild birds arc calling as they hurry southward ahead of the cold and snow. I wish I had clipped a little poem that 1 once read. I can remember one line. "No leaves, no flowers, no sun-—November." Yet November has its beauty, too. It is when a bare tree that we notice the grace and symmetry t.f the tree itself. When the leaves are gone we can see the beauty of the little woodland people—a cardinal high in a bare tree top. a red-headed woodpecker on the trunk of an orchard 1ree. a gray squirrel hurrying to store away his food for winter. November brings the final harvest when the farmers bring in the last of the yellow corn, and he golden pumpkin? are taken to the cellar. The late garden vegetables, plump cabbage bends, purple and white turnips, crisp nut-like celery and golden carrots are stored away. The latP apples are .uatheml frmn the m-hard. the doep-rrd-hlaek ones that need to be stored away until aflrr Christmas. The nuts are gathered from the woods and lirought to the storehouse. Hams and bacon are being cured in hickory smoke, and in this modern day fresh meats are being prepared for food lockers. The cellars are filled to (lie very doors with row upon row of shining iars of vegetables, fruits, jams and jellies. Sweet Bermuda onions are hanging to dry and fragrant sage is gathered for winter use. And November brings to America a day of thanksgiving, and what is more fitting than America's giving thanks to God for His good ness? We say it so much and hear it so often that America is blessed above every nation in (ho world, that it becomes almost trite to us. But how true it is and how grateful we should be. Yes, we love thanksgiving day and everything that goes with it— all the rich traditions that make the day so wonderful. Huge brown turkeys, ready for carving, candied sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and whipped cream—family gatherings, children home—yes, even the loud blare of the football game on the radio. The gathering around the table, the bowing of heads, the thanks offered to God for His blessings of the year. There is always the deep" and satisfying assurance o-f God's love that abideth forever. The expansion of farm irriga lion and lasl summer's drought has caused concern to farmers in nmst counties in the state according to the waterworks superintendent, in Ottumwa. He says "Our farmers are noing more and more to wide scale irrigation. They are taking water from the streams, storing it in ponds, or pumping directly onto fields. One man in our watershed expects to put three inches of water on ICO acres of hind. For a section. h'40 acres, that would take 17,500.000 gallons. And there is need for irrigation, lie said, because it requires 10.000 gallons of water to produce a bushel of corn, and to get that much water requires 20 inches of rain." No wonder the gent is for irrigation because on account of we sure didn't get any 20 inches of rain in this neck of the woods last summer, so to speak. .—n— The Iowa liquor control commission reports that lowans spent slightly more for liquor and wine last year but drank considerably less and that is because on account of there was a five per cent boost for drinks last year. Total sales for the year ending June 30 were $37,453,940 or about $59.993 more than last year. However, the net profits were $236,090 more than last year. The number of liquor permits dropped from 306,774 last year to 303.379 this year. And the number of arrests for intoxication v. ere 3.448 fewer than last year. The commission said that lowans continued last year to buy more straight bourbon and Scotch whiskies. But il looks like Hit lowans are sort of letting up on their liquor consumption, somewhat, so to speak. • LuVerne By Mrs. Fern Bigings LEDGERS.
