PAGE FOUR WESLEY BOY AT SERVICES IN A GERMAN CHURCH Wesley, June 25—Cpl. Chas. Kraus, who is in the engineers stationed at Augsburg, Germany, wrote his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Kraus Sr., May 20 that he had attended church services in a Lutheran church which was built in 1515. Part of one end had crumbled from bombings. It is remarkable for it to be still standing for all nearby buildings are in complete ruins. The church connects wit.h the other buildings, and there is no steeple to distinguish it as a church. He said they walked through a corridor entering an auditorium, which is quite small, with a balcony on one side. The pulpit is 20 feet off the floor. Half of the peopli sit facing the other half. The most remarkable thing to him was birch trees growing through the floor. There were a dozen, all around 20 feet tall. It seemed strange to duck the branches of a tree while walking down an aisle. He wrote: "Coming over on convoy we saw land for the first time since March 7 when we came in sight of. the coast of Ireland on St. Patrick's day. The day before we ran into several submarines. We had a large escort of destroyers, that kept dropping depth charges all over the place. You could feel the concussion very plainly at, times. j "Several destroyers came out, to meet our convoy two days be- j fore we hit land. Every day; we had fire drill on the boat, j We now live in a sort of Dutch I Augsburg." | Louis Cink Weds Algonian— Many attended the Cink-Shick wedding dance here Wednesday. Louis, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Cink, was married that morning to Mary Shick. of Algona, at St. Cecelia's Catholic church at Algona. They will live on his father's farm southwest of Wesley. Mr. and Mrs. George Cink have moved into their residence they purchased from Mr. and Mrs. Francis Hauptman.

Hildman, Mrs. Matt Erdman, Mrs. Joe Studer, Mrs. Clarence Nelson, Mrs. Joe Goctz. and Mrs. J. M. Kunz. KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA> IOWA -TUESDAY, JU NE DOG TALES (Submitted by Leonldos Betl-y Camp, 761 Harrison Avenue. Salt Lake City 8, Utah) w OME dogs are noted for intelligence, sortie for loyalty, others for general utility. Few combine all these qualities with the bravery and perseverance of the western sheep and cattle dog. Shag had been helping guide a herd of fine beef cattle at an angle across a double-track of the Union Pacific near Morgan, Utah. His master, t rancher, had watched and counted the day's trains go by, and wasn't expecting another. But the Union Pacific was running a troop train that day. It was rushing through the valley like the W«u wind, enroutc to a port of embarkation. Just as the cattle, close-bunched by the dog snapping at their heeli, were well-astride the tracks, the train shot around the curve. The tancher yelled and spurred his horse, but the cattle dog never wavered. He barked, snapped, bit in every direction. The cattle scattered, and as the locomotive bore down, the dog made his last leap, but too late. He was struck by the cattle-guard and his back was broken. Of forty cattle on the tracks, only four were killed or injured. The brave dog dragged himself off through (lie weeds, and hobbling on his front legs, edged his way toward home about a mile away. He never made it, dying about halfway. All the time the rancher had just sat on his horse and stared. Everyone else was awed and silent. I was the conductor on the train that killed that dog, and saw nearly the whole incident. As long,as I live, I'll be kind and generous to every dog that needs'human help and kindness. Give your dog an extra pat for his constant loyalty. And feed him well with the nutritious dog food, un- rationed, at your grocer's.
