Last week The Algona Upper Des Moines carried a picture of three sisters in Indiana, whose combined ages totaled 263 years. But that record is nothing, as compared to a Kossuth family.

"I have a brother, Wm. Waffle, of Seattle, who will be 101 on March loth. I was 80 last December, and I have another brother, Tom, In Long Beach, who was 85 last August. It beats the three sisters by 10 years, as we total 275 years. I also have a sister who waa 80 last August and lives in St Paul. I have lived In Kossuth county for 55 years," writes Mrs. Pratt.
