Tidbits Frorti fve/yn Thtf did lAtfnf "Troubles never coma Singly funs true in the Franjt Ybtlng household for at the time he became sick and was taken to- the U.S. Army hospital at Fort Leonard,. Wood, Mo., w/herfc he died a few days later, the daughter Janice Ann, 12, became sick with rheumatic fever. She is to be hospitalized a month and it will be many months before she will be out of bed. Mrs Young is a sister of Mrs Don Prieskorn. * * « ti seems to me it would be a fine idea for folks to send letters and cards to this child who is facing her ailment very bravely. Messages of good cheer, little gifts to keep her morale high, and certainly in the kindness to the child, the mother will also receive a much needed "lift." Mr Young was a Master Sergeant and had received 2 Legion of Merit Awards. While in service he was Warrant Officer. He was given a military funeral service and escort from Fort Leonard Wood to Fort Dodge. A service man also, accompanied Mrs Young and her mother, Mrs J. E. Koll of Fort Dodge who had been with her several days, driving them from Missouri to Fort Dodge and back; Janice Ann's address is U.S. Army Hospital, Ward B 9, Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. There are two sons iii the family, Frank and Joseph, nine year old twins who are lempprarilly living with Mr and Mrs Prieskorn have been enrolled at St. Cecelia's academy. They have also joined the cub scouts under Mesdames Craig Smith an$ C. J. McEvoy, Joseph in Mrs Smith's club, Frank with Mrs McEvoy. * + « i • . There is seldom a dull moment in a household where there are little tots. This story should end all stories that little boys don't like baths, for a few days ago when Rickie and Rex Post were so quiet, Mama Lavonne ond Grandma Lizzie, began to wonder. Investigation revealed nearly five-year-old Rickie in the nude, two-year-old Rex fully clothed and Frippe, the little dog of uncertain age, all in a bath tub of cold water. And very dirty water at that for Frippe is permitted to run outdoors and dog-like, he isn't too meticulous in his habits. Well, it's lucky it wasn't HOT water. * » * What an interesting life Maroa Keith Bailey, daughter of Mrs L. W. Keith lives. She has lived at Philadelphia, Pa., or near there for many years & a few years ago began acting as hostess on conducted tours abroad. She is go-: ing to do that again this Summer and next-, year sh'e plans to- po on a 'round the world trip via air. i,-,: . * * Many Algonans will remember Clint McClellan, brother of Mrs Glen Raney. He and his wife farmed near LuVerne a number of years but retired awhile ago. They have been spending the winters in Florida and were there again this year, returning last week. * • * Adrian Casler as I meniioned last week, has also returned from Palmetto, Fla. At 4 any rate, the m;iin thing is he had a wonderful vacation and came home loaded with various fruits and Sifts for his many relatives, especially the small nephews. o » a Fern Johnson, daughter of Mr and Mrs Hugo Johnson will be well remembered by many here Eagle Grove by their father, A. A. Sterling who drove down after them. Mrs Sterling is slowly recovering from her recent illness. MOTOR REPAIRS Large Stock of REPLACEMENT PARTS On Hand Prompt Service At All Times Service Motors Available For Emergency Use PRATT ELECTRIC CO. Jhone 170 il Algona, la. where she grew to young wdman- hood, later going to Des Moines. In her girlhood she had aft attack Of arthritis in one knee. She was in the orthopedic hospital at Iowa City and had surgery which, kept her there a considerable length of time. .She eventually recovered with only a barely Perceptible limp. 1 thought how r lucky she was. Two years^ago I Saw her at a convention held in Des Moines for Iowa's crippled adults. She introduced me to her husband James Hajfnes, a victim of polio which keeps him confined to a wheel chair, feeing affected in his legs. He is a large man, athletic type, who served in the navy, came home and picked up the "bug," 'a missile worse than gun fire. The couple has been employed, maintained a home and everything was going fine till Fern had to have further surgery. It was the same leg that was causing trouble, but after a few weeks in a Des Moines hospital, she was recently taken home. She is confident she will be O.K. in a short time. * * * Tefry Lee, infant son of Mr and Mrs Charles Elmore at 15'/£>i months old has discovered at this early date that life is not a bed of roses on this old earth. When only seven months old he had surgery for hernia and is again lospitalized for hernia on the opposite side and lost his appendix at the same time. Quite a lot :or such a little fellow, but he is making good recovery. He? probably wonders what he has done in his young life to,deserve such rough treatment. » * i I don't know how many hides it would take to make a 'coat or a neck piece, but it seems to me 100 skins would go a long way. Imagine 100 foxes nailed to" the barn wall, plus one wolf, and you would sec in imagination what Mr and Mrs George Larson saw actually last week. They drove lo the Beadle farm at Swea City where the skins-were lined, up, proof that Joe. Ed and Frank Bauer and Mr Beadle had experienced good luck in their hunt. The animals are spotted from the Bauer's airplane. There are many farmers I am ?urc who will be glad to know a menace had been reduced so considerably. * * * How many parakeet owners can boast their pets talk? I have yet to hear one, but Hazel Lusby's Jeffersoi 1 ! is reported to say Whatcha doin! whatcha doin' " and during some recent redecorating, he sang lustily every lime the sander was in operation. * *. * Don Cook, son of Mr and Mrs Ray Cook, and Dave Zittritsch, son of Mr and <Mrs Eugene Zitt- ritsch, heeded the words of Horace Greeley who said, "Go west, young man, go west" and they hit the trail for Los Angeles and points surrounding Monday morning. Both have relatives there and if the country looks good to them and they land suitable jobs, it is probable they will remain there. On the other hand. "Uncle Sam" has an eye on them so their futures are somewhat unpredictable. o * * Mr and Mrs Max Mesing have returned from Chicago where they were called by the serious accident suffered by their daughter, Mrs Charles Snodgrass (Doris). Mr Sncdgrass is employed in Chicago but the family, lives in a trailer court at Aurora.' The other d.iy Doris lit the ovon, no! knowing there was a leak. Flames shot out and the explosion threw her across the room, broke windows, and by sheei* luck, two women who were in the trailer with her came to her rescue. Sho was badly burned on the right hand and arm as well as leg and foot burns. Her parents were with the family a week while Doris was hospitalized. Friends there will assist her in the household work till she is fully recovered. a * » A card from Herlha Dau who is vacationing at St. Petersburg. Fia., says "Five weeks tomorrow since we left home. Time goes 'oo fast. Weather wonderful, having a really fine vacation. Just sot back from Fort Meyer and Sarasota. Visited one evening with tlu> Dr. Savvvt-rs on Fort Meyer Beach. We love trailer life—in fact hale to start, hack home to, I'm sure more winter." • » « Back to Algon? in 1929 To find that Melvin Weathergreen, an Iowa City student, \vlin is returning to his home in Bridsesvator.
