PAGE TWO KOSSttTH COUNT?? ADVANCE, ALGONA, Long, Long Ago Advances Dec. 9-16, 1914. Are the Harry Bodes living on the same Plum Creek farm they bought of 'Ed' Rist n 1914? If so, they could have celebrated the 30th anniversary a couple of weeks ago. . M. Remember the Rev. F. A. Smiley, Presbyterian pastor here then? As he was driving: home on a Sunday from his Irvington services, his team ran away and he was thrown out, but next day reported ho personal damage <:•;•;- cept fracture of his ministerial dignity. —*— What's this about Geo. W. Patterson, Burt, as a "dairy expert" in the Dec. 16, 1914, Advance? (Apparently he dairys mostly with sheep now.) Does the Rev. A. G. Heddle, Burt Methodist pastor, remember where he was and what he was doing Dec. 7, 1914? (He was here in Algona, attending a county ministerial union meeting and reading a paper on "The New Opportunities of the Ministry.") Know when the southeast corner Evergreen tree in the courthouse square was first decorated with colored electric lights? It was in 1914, and it was the late Otto Falkenhainer who suggested it. (Hard to believe, but a recent Reader's Digest clamed that decorated Christmas trees of any kind were unknown less than 100 years ago. . . . Can't light it now: WPB wartime prohibition.) That time Cretz was so sick, as reported in this column recently, he lost 16 pounds in a few days. (He could afford to lose twice as much now.) — *— What ever became of the triplets born here Dec. 14, 1914? Did they live to grow up, are they living yet, and where are they? They were the children of Mr. and Mrs. David Stuart, Algona, and their birth was a local sensation. Wonder if Beth Weaver (Schemel) and 'Ed.' Genrich still maintain that there ought to be a literacy test for immigrants. Or did congress listen and provide one? On that issue they and Dicie Beane had out-argued diet Falkenhainer, Eleanor Norton, and Earl Willson for the title of No. 1 A. H. S. debuting team. — '.¥ — Remember Clark Peck? The Advance claimed that he was being re-introduced to his wife and the neighbors. (He had shaved off a Civil War board.) _ j.\ __ Editor Lee O. Wolfe, who was already Titonk-a postmaster and Buffalo township J. P., had been made mayor, but County Attorney Van Ness had called his attention to a supreme court case holding that the same man could not be both mayor and J. P.; whereupon L. O, resigned as mayor.

FATS PICKUP A WEEK, 200 IBS. Pickup of waste fats continues weekly in Algona and is made by the Paine Rendering plant just south of town. Housewives who turn waste fat over to their butcher not only get 4c and two red tokens for each pound, but make possible enough nitroglycerin to fire an anti-aircraft shell. Twelve teaspopnsful of fat have enough glycerin for this. Some 200 pounds are collected weekly here from C. S. Johnson, the Sorensen grbcefy, the National Tea Co., the Consumers grbcery, and the Council Oak, Hood's, arid Jack Sprat stores. Some months ago, fat pickups for Kossuth tdwn outside Algona Were turned over to a Britt rendering company because it could not be handled here for lack of room. '^ HELPS SAVE'PARTS OF PLANE ENGINES Russell D. Hiitchins, aviation M. M. 1-c., arrived last week Tuesday for- a 30-day furlough with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hutchins. He had been overseas 20 months in the New Hebrides islands. The young man received boot training at the Great Lakes and specialized training at a navy aviation school at Norman, Okla. His specialty is electro-plating, a new method developed for recovery of worn airplane-engine parts. In this process worn bearings, piston rods, and crank shafts are electro plated, then turned down to the required size, which makes them as good as or even better than the originals at only about one-third the cost of new parts. A big development along this line is expected for all motors after the wars.
