6-AIgona (fa.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, March 27, 1956 Ravings CO by CHRIS RtESE A Little of This, a Little o! Thai; Not Much of Anything Yep. it was Ihe olher day thai I received a letter from Ihe gent who knows tonguo-Uvisting a-plenty and I sure would like to print his name but lie insists that T can only say that he is a Wesley gent. And lie sent me another tongue-twister and which again proves that he sure knows tongue-twisting a-plenty. This time he sent me the following 1un<uio - twister: "Pickpockets picked Fete Putt's pockets. an<i pickpockets picked Pete Pott's pickpockets' pockets, if pickpockets picked Pete Pott's pickpockets' pickpockets' pockets, I wonder if pickpockets picked Pete Pott's pickpockets' pickpockets' pickpockets' pockets." There, now you figure that one out and here's hoping I'll be able some day to print the name of this Wesley tongue-twisting gent. But you will admit that he sure knows tongue-twisting. But he admits that Wesley is not a tongue - twisting gents' town because on account of he's the only tongue-twister getting his mail there because he's on a rural route but is a resident of Kossuth county. So, according to that he's a Kossuth county tongue-twister, so to speak. Yep, J. Amos Carberry, of St. Ansgar, is now a member of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers because on account of I mailed him a membership card the other day. And it was Fred Laabs, also of St. Ansgar, who recommended the membership of Brother Carberry because on account of it is claimed that J. Amos is ,a 100 per cent lover of the Java, that he drinks it almost by the gallon and that he even is known to take a waking hour at midnight and brews of Java that he may gulp, so to speik. And it is claimed that J. Amos is one gent who knows his coffee brewing, that his coffee is most tasteful, delicious and gulpingly wonderful. Sure glad to get Brother Carberry into the coffee gulping association because on account of he will prove a credit to the over 17,000 membership in the gulper club,' .so to speak. Yep, it was Tuesday of last week that is designated as the first day pf spring but there must have been some mistake made by the forecaster because on account of we have surely not, had much of spring weather arid maybe he meant it to be Tuesday of this week or next week. At this time, Thursday of last week, there is nothing in looks or feelings or temperature that would stand for spring. With several inches of snow on the ground on the first day of spring it just seemed like it should have been called the first day of winter, so to speak. Of course the spring question varies each year, and I remember that on the first day of March some years ago the farmers in this section had finished seeding. But it's a cinch there has been no seeding done in these whereabouts this year. So, although the first day of spring has been here and gone, we are still enjoying the white snow aplenty and the lower thermometer readings, so to speak. —o— If was while I was enjoying the gulping of a cup of coffee one day that I got a big kick out of several gents who were also enjoying the gulping and the subject of their visiting was Algona street names. l3oes beat the band what gulpers will talk about and argue over while sipping their Java. And this time it was the naming of Algona streets. Said one gent: "You know it's easy for me to get lost in this city because I can't remember street names like I could numbered streets and avenues. For instance, I counted the streets in Algona one time and found there were 72 streets bearing a name. None of them were known as avenues and there was no north or south or east or west designations and so the only way I know where I am at or how far it is from the main drag to my home is by looking at a map of the city. And when I speak about a number on Jon?s street I might have reference to a number on Call street, so it is that I'd like to see Algona streets named and numbered. North and south streets named avenues and east and west as street and how much more simple that would make it for me as well as you, especially were we strangers and visitors here." And maybe he's got something there. At any rate if the streets were numbered in one direction it would lessen the big number of names and so would be the easier to remember and find, even for those of us who live here as well as strangers or visitors, so to speak.

SALE BARN WILL BE THOROUGHLY DISINFECTED BEFORE HEIFERS ARE TAKEN THERE. 125 head of these heifers will weigh between 550 to 750 pounds. 75 head of these heifers will weigh from 400 to 550 pounds. These heifers were bought as calves directly from Wisconsin farms, through the Barron County Co-Operative Dairy Cattle Sales Association, of Barron, Wisconsin. They were fed on my farm near Irvington. They are from dams that produced over 400 pounds of butterfat and some as high as 600 pounds butterfat. This gives them all the potential of developing into the very best top grade of springing heifers demanding top prices and insuring top production. All heifers have been fed a complete ration, fortified with vitamin A and D, and trace minerals, assuring proper development and minimizing breeding trouble. They have all shown a very satisfactory growth to date. These heifers all dehorned and completely healed. ALL HEIFERS ARE OFFICIALLY CALFHOOD VACCINATED AND TATOOED.
