They visited at the homo of their sister. Mrs. Mell Peterson at Schenectndy. New York, for two weeks. During this time they enjoyed a two day trip through the New England states of Massachusetts, Maine. Vermont and New Hampshire. They spent a month with the Petersons at Long Island. They saw several Broadway plays, and attended the Metropolitan opera. Betty and Jean are daughters of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Murtagh. There are vanishing Americans, and also vanishing prairie chickens. In fact the prairie chicken has practically vanished completely, where once it -was a populous Kossuth county bird, and a mighty choice morsel at the table. In the above picture, we see a group of Swea City blades about to start home after a successful hunt. Naturally, they are pretty proud of their bag, whloh you see scattered on the ruhning board and fenders of the snappy Ford, model T, 1912. This picture was taken in 1912, and we are presuming the car was a new model at that time. In case you don't recognize these Kossuth county men, they are, left to right, on running board, C. R Berggren, who now runs his own business in Swea City, 0. E. Berggren, who now farms near Swea City, and P. J. Heiken, supervisor of the fifth district, and former mayor of Swea City. In the foreground are J. W. Berggren, former cafe owner, now living at Lead, S. D., and J. G. Haglund, a contractor whom everybody knows, now living at Swea City. All are ardent sportsmen—they were then, in 1912, and still are. No prairie chickens are now to be found in Northwest Kossuth county.
