Her birthday was observed recently and . among her gift? was a rod and reel from her^raJj'dson, The gift ivas purchased on a snowy >day and when he. »went down the streets of Des Moines carrying ihii out-of-season article, passersby smiled and probably thought thief fishing season was to be prepared for,'in-plenty, of time. With the; season a bit far away, her Soft-ln-law suggested a tub of water in which she could dangle the line. She was agreeable to this and answered in the same spirit — "Oh, , any where would .suit me, just so I have a fish pole in my hands.". * : * * Shirley Mo* and her husband, Ted Mongan of Omaha, Neb., had an experience last week which if it never repeated will be soon enough. They were in a super market shopping when in came armed bandits ,who demanded cash. Shirley r wtis only tnret feet behind onfe of the men.

Out will go some extra feed too. , We have an addition to the house for screens and storm windows. At one time I kept a wheel chair in there sd I 'dubbed the addition "the dog house" an appropriate name I think for a wheel chair's shelter. This addition is low enough for Mrs Gilles and my Esther to place feed for birds, so all winter the "feathered friends" have been well cared for. Now something spedal must be put there for the robins. I wonder what they like best. • • • I spent Saturday afternoon and evening at Mason City with my cousin, Gerald Cady and his wife Julia. I purposely requested them to have a continuous T.V. program in the hopes 1 would catch the "fever". But alas, I came home no more enthused than I had been. The Lawrence Welk program was "up my alley" and I especially like Dick Dale. * • • My trip was not without benefits, however, for I learned something about dogs. Delia Welter and her sister, Edith, Who haye been vacationing in Florida the past fortnight, had left their pet with my cousin who has an We ae grateful for this opportunity to thank the Barry family for their fine business in the past — and we are very pleased to greet Larry Knoll as the owner of "Larry's Recreation/' I ' i ' • '*. •»••-•.•*, i ...-,.,.. • ••', v</-. x • •-••. v ?-&<-• CAMOlEt M .\ " " CIGARETTES CONFECTIONS CIGARS NOVELTIES TOBACCO PAPER GOODS BOX CANDIES CANADA DRY BrrnmgM — BOWEY'S Syrupt & Topping* WITT SALES WHOLESALERS SPENCER, IOWA PHONE .712 15 FIFTH ST.

Julia had gone to the hospital, a few yards.from the dwelling, to wait on Delia ahd when she was. asked why the dog was "moul- ting", Julia didn't know. When she came back she asked Gerald and He. explained that the pet was shedding early because he had. been in a warm •. room. Once outside again, the fur will cease to shed. Delia Said he loves to have his hide brushed, and this titftg 8he, vaduumed him. Now there.'s ah idea to pass on to you dog owners. • . •' » • Millie ttoite hAs lor years exercised ' her "green, thumb" in wohderful vegetable gardens and apparently she does equally as well, with flowers. Last year she had''an Easter lily' given her and after it's period of blooming she put the bulb away to rest. It looked-Hopelessly dead wheln she inspected ;it a few weeks ago. She decided to plant it and scarcely dared Hope it Would live, but it has surpassed all her hopes and now has twb lovely blooms. • • * At reported previously Mrs Arthur Obrecht appeared on T.V. at Fort Dodge recently. It was more fun to have others along to share the gayicty, so her brother- ih-law and sister. Mr and Mrs H. A. Kaiser, of Rolfe and Mr and Mrs John Meyer of Fort Dodge were with Mr'and'Mrs Obrecht When they "painted the town," dining, dancing, going to a show and lunching and then the big event at the studio at 5:45 1 believe it was. Mrs Obrecht confesses she was a litHe. tense and is perfectly willing that anyone else who cares to can be a T.V performer—she, well she'll stick to being just a housewife. Her gifts were hose, a sitting for her portrait and a oorsaije. .... B. P. Richardson has returned from Houston, Tex., where he had visited his son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Ed Voigt. He said .the weather was like Iowa's May. Ah, wonderful Houston. • . • • Mrs Marie Muriagh had an interesting letter from her daughter Josephine Pruyn the other day. Mr-and Mrs Pruyn are vacationing at Miami, Fla. "Jo" loves to fish'and she was thrilled to haul in a 20 pounder the other day. Mrs Murtagh couldn't think of the name of it, but 20 pounds is a pood haul, no matter what kind, Just so it's edible, and I'm sure her's must haye been a good variety. She .was so excited about it she -wrote her mother she had to take an 'aspirin immediately afterward. • ' ' i * ' * ' * Harold Weber, former instructor of music here now living at Cedar Falls, tootf a bow the other night while conducting )a music group, a bow that surprised Tiim as well as the musicians and audience. Seems he had been sick a few days and really shouldn't have tried to make an appearance. Not realizing how weak he still was, he. was determined to do his part, when all at once he fell forward onto the music rack. No damage done, no serious after-afects, but he probably wished he had heeded advice from the missus. • • * . Jim Palmer to a good son and a thoughtful one. His mother said he recently phoned the family again. He does this quite frequently in place of letters. What.a nice idea. He is stationed at Long Beach, Calif., and is in the navy. • • • June, 1929 — Carol Owen of Jefferson visited last week with his grandparents, Mr and Mrs L. M. Owen. His parents Mr and Mrs Verne Owen drove up after him Saturday evening and took him home Sunday. Last Friday the Owens and Carol went fishing up at Mud Lake and caught 83 bullheads. (The Owens lived in the Fielding Perry house on east College street. They built it, I believe.) Mrs O. Lorenz (mother of "Dutch") went to Fort Dodge Friday to visit her daughter, Mrs Myron Hill. From Fort Dodge she went to Harlan to visit her son Bruno and after a visit there she will go to Council Bluffs and Omaha to visit her daughter, Mrs John Shearer and her son Fred. (Fred I think must have been the one I knew as "Fritz" who worked for my father and George Johnson when they were contractors and partners. I used to gc to town (Lakota, then Germania, with Fritz when he was sent for groceries. The trading was done at the Bell brothers store. Does anyone remember them?)
