Ravings OD by CHRIS REESE A LUlle of This, a Dili* of Thai; Nol Much of Anything It was one sunny day last week That I set out for friends to seek, That daily they suggestions give How best it was for me to live. The first I met then was Soup Briggs And he suggest I take up jigs, And when I met with Homer Clark He told me how my car to park, And when I talked with M. H. Fain He told me la ease toothache pain, And meeting up with Chas. B. Fox He said "Be sure to check on your car locks," And visiting with Herman Funk He said I never was a punk. And how to rightly quench my thirst was offered tea-wise by Gene Furst, Fred Geigel told me "Don't lose sleep, Be sure that daily hours you keep." And I was told by Alfred Grill To not forget that daily pill. And when I asked twelve Hansens (Dane) They told me to remain the same. It was suggested by George Hobbs That for my fuel I use cobs, And then 'twas offered by Gene Hood That this for fuel would do me good. And then suggested Ira Kohl that 1 should have new fishing pole And Harold Lampright said "Don't fail To pick up all your daily mail," And sure he's right for it is fun Until I get some doggone dun. And I was told by Beecher Lane That he thought me as always sane, And I was told by Casey Loss That maybe I should mouth-harp toss. And I was told by Tim O'Brien That as a Dane I'm doing fine, But then suggested Howard Platt "Take care that you don't get too fat." And this was offered by Wes Schultz That daily doctor count my pulse. And I was told then by Bill Steele That now I winter undies peal. So there you have it friend and friend, Suggestions how my life I spend. So to speak — —o— Secretary of State Melvin D. Synhprst predicts that the total vote in the June 4th primary will reach about 390,000 and he forecasts that the division will be 300,000 republican and 90,000 democratic. But I'm going to offer a prediction this year and that will be that we democrats are going to cast considerably over 100,000 this year, in fact I believe we're going to surprise the secretary quite considerably, so to speak. No, I'm not doing any betting this year because on account of four years ago I made a political bet of $5 and won and I'm not going to take any chances on losing. Yep, I'm still a democrat. —o— Well, spring has finally arrived and I have proof of it by virtue of the dandelions which have nppoarod hprc during 1hr> pa«t' few days. They are a sure sign of spring. And it would be fun to do some arithmaticing as to just how many of the yellow burls have appeared in Algona during the week. There are probably several million right in this town. And this year the dandelions seem to show a sort of preference just %vhere they grow because on account of I counted them in my residence lot and there were only 206 while in a neighboring lot in the same bl'u-k there seemed to be thousands — they were that thick. Maybe 1 don't live rig'.it hence the preference of dandelion blooms in other folks' lawns. And another indication of spring having finally arrived i.s the distinctive growth upward of the grass in lawns. It upped so fast that in many cases it had the appearance of hay. so to speak. But it begins to look now as if we have with us spring in earnest and shortly we'll be enjoying regular summer. —o— Last Tuesday, the 15th of May, was straw hat day and it begins to look as though I was the only Algona gent to observe and celebrate the day because on account of I wore my straw but I didn't see one single other straw worn by gents on that day. In fact I have only counted nine straw wearers since that day and maybe it's because gents don't have straws nor observe the straw day like they used to, so to speak. younger gonf T did >omr> and that was in the days when you had to know how to stretch a worm over a honk, and you hod to know just when to yank the pole and line in following the bobble and active doings of a cork on your fishing line. But that was in the old clays — fishing is different now-a-adays, so to speak.

IF IT'S NEWS — WE WANT If It was over the weekend that the fishing season made a flying start and many local nimrods took on with their fish searching and from reports there wore plenty of many good hauls. No, I'm not a fisherman, dumb as all get-out about the finny tribe, but I sure love their meats, so to speak.
