>AOE EIGHT KOSSUTH COtNtY ADVANCE, ALOONA, 10WA The Good Old Days N<J. 8 Being n series of old-time pictures showing scenes of Algona and this store, niul used in connection with our present Diamond Jubilee year celebration. Oil July 2!)th, HMO. a. giant Homecoming nas held in Algona under the auspices of the County Red Cross Chapter, of which the late Al Falkcnhainer was chairman, for veterans of World War I. In what the Algona Upper Dos Hoines describes sis "the greatest event in the history of Kossuth County," this great celebration was attended by over 25,000 people. The picture «)>oje shows the big nrch which was ••rected across Hie street south from the Court House to the middle of the block opposite. Col. Stanley \yas speaker of the day with a great parade at noon and special amusement features at the Fair Grounds in the afternoon and evening, including ball games, races and displays. The celebrated liainbow Division hand furnished music for the day which culminated in a big pavement, dance south of the Dehnert Hotel on (he newly finished paving. Special bleachers had been erected along the south side of Call Street. Fireworks were also shown at the Fair Grounds in the evening. A Shrine convention was held n Algona on August Nth,"a 'little'over a week after this homecoming and all street decorations were saved and used for this event. Noxious Weeds T1iis is the time of year tlio '.•»" 'and (own people are pulling bad weeds our, 9 of their fields and gardens. And the Allied nations are also pulling noxious weeds out of Europe. They have the ring leaders pulled out of Germany, but there is a lot of Nazi left yet and it will be a big job to select the bad from the good. It will take a lot of education ami patience to show the children that Ilillerism is a bad weed and would, if left alone, choke out the world's civilization. These children and the ones now coming into the world are not to blame for the atrosities and crazy ideas of Hitler and his gang. They will make good citizens if properly trained. If not, they may turn out to be bad weeds. The child is father of the man. The future of the world depends on how the children are trained. I was trained to sell shoes and am still at it. I have now the best lineup of men's shoes since war began. Unpacking those shoes is like shaking hands with old friends. The men's work shoes are solid leath- "er soles and all. They are made over correct lasts and will wear and be comfortable. It Is a pleasure to sell them. My line of men's oxfords are wonderful and for pri^a and quality will compare favorably with lines I carried before the wai; You get the same shoes for less money at Neville's. Jimmie Neville HODGEPODGE W«btt«r— A slew «f vurioui ingredients, a mixture. - «Y BUKNt I. DtWtt - . — * ONE THING noticed by everyone who does this sort of stuff is other columns, with, naturally, mental reservations about the quality and how much better or worse it could -have been done. # * * Harlan Miller's restoration of Over the Coffee and Gordon Gammack's new column are two that come under scrutiny. They are different, with Gammack more the extrovert reporter of things on the odd side, and Miller the writer of his own ideas and thoughts, and you can take it or leave it, the inference being that js makes little difference to him. I * * !<C But the trivia that fills these columns are the really momentous things of everyday life that find a counterpart in every person's experience, if not of the present, then of the past, or perhaps the future. That's what makes them readable and interesting. For people arc prone to read them over and remember one's own experiences and enjoy the memory of them. * .-;« * ItV. a nice thing — mcmoryl And the nicest thing is that the trials and troubles arc not recorded as deeply in the memory as the more pleasant things, and it does one good just to sit back and recall. # # * Everyone has an experience or two in long life • that ' bring • a blush of embarrasment to the i cheek, but how often are these I recalled in relation to the num- 1 her of times the more pleasant] things that bring yesterday's lingering smile and a long-ago look to the eyes are remembered?

You can tell whether the writer was feeling good or whether his liver was acting up or whatever his pet trouble is. One .of the things a writer tries to do is hide himself, yet from. the very nature of writing it- is personalized in a column to a' single word. * $ * Writing even with a wealth of ideas, is not an easy chore, and when ideas are scarce or the mood not the best, it becomes hard exhausting work. Anyone who had tried to fill even a short letter when the thoughts wouldn't come has had the ex- j perience the wirters of these columns have occasionally. * * * | Gammack is still "young" in the business of grinding away at COLD WAVE (Walter Weisbrod.

His stuff is fresh and enthusiastic j while Miller, the "old man" of the game, often lets a little of his weariness and philosophy of living creep in whether he wills it or not. And occasionally, he deliberately puts things like that in his writings—with a sort of tongue in cheek attitude in a spirit of the old master. * * * Everyone that writes knows eventually that he doesn't come close to pleasing everybody, and there's enough of a wag in every writer to toss something in once in a while "for the .wolves" who don't like his stuff to "chew on." It's the human touch, for every writer is just as human as the people for whom he writes, and he gets his prejudices and preferences into is writing even though trying to keep them out. In fact if you didn't get mad or laugh at the "durn fool that writes that junk" you wouldn't read it, because it would be lifeless for the simple reason the writer didn't get life into it ' if -Jt :js And even a writer likes to have a little fun with the' 'customers" once in a while just to get even. 9, FROM ALL THE fuss and raves over what the bride wore in the news stories a body'd think it was the first time the gal ever wore clothes. FISHERMEN HOSTS.
