6—Algona Upper De» Moines Tuesday, January 24, 1950 A dog may be man's best liiend. but I doubt very much whether he is woman's. Every dog-lover had always told me that if I owned a dog I would become as attached to it as to any other member of the family. I believed them and although I never cared much for dogs, we bought a puppy anyway. The dog lovers were right, my feelings toward canines did change. After we had a dog around the house for a while, I simply hated them! In fiction and the movies. If a character loves, and is kind to dogs and children, you can be real sure that he isn't going to turn out to be the villain of the story. The villain often shows his true character by surreptitiously kicking at a cur or referring to an innocent little child as a "brnt". I guess I must be part villain, because I still don't like dogs, although I could never mistreat them. On the credit side, I'm very fond of children. That's why it seems so unnecessary to keep a dog with all of its fur shedding, tracking, barking and general cusseddness. It's lots less work and much more rewarding to simply add another child to the family. That's what we did, but for a while we had both the new baby and the dog. The dog took sick and has now gone, we trust, to a better place where no irate Mama will chase him off the dav enport with a broom. Things are comparatively peaceful around here now, but it undoubtedly won't last. The six-year-old says he thinks he is now big enough to take care of a pet himself. He and his father think it would be agers. Extra butter isn't necessary, but a bottle of catsup is not out of place. 1 have also triec making these with baking powder biscuit dough, and they are quicker that way but not quite so good as when they are made with the yeast dough. GRACE Young Couple Of Grant Twp, Wed At Swea Swea & Eagle — Phyllis Gies, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm.

They will start farming on EJdon's father's latin, north of town. very nice to get a good-sizec collie. Puppies, like the babies o" any species, are so appealing tha when they bring it home, I wil probably let them keep it. • » » When I was growing up we had a family dog we all loved—even I. She was a little mongrel named Spot and she was a very patient soul. We dyed her a different color after each bath. She was originally white but a little bluing, Mercurochrome or a mixture of both produced a startling- Jy colored dog in blue, red or purple. One time when Teddy and Joel Herbst and our little sister were about four years old, they decided -to use Spot as the patient in the hospital tent. The surgical instrument was a toy hatchet, the dog held very still until the "doctors" and the "nurse" had cut quite a gash on her foot. They carried the bleeding Spot home and explained that she had stepped on some glass. The Herbst boys were absent from our house for quite some time after that, and it was months later that we found out what had really happened. * * • Some of the Algona people who have been ill this winter say that the new drugs are very effective. The only catch is that the pills cost about a dollar each. That's what the Don Hemingsons are using at their house but it is their pet dog who is ill. The family is very attached to the animal and just in case the dog doesn't recover they are already explaining to their three-year-old Susan that he might have to go to "dog heaven." • • * The Frank Moultons chose a kitten for their pet. The four- year-old daughter, Kay, couldn't decide whether the cat was a boy or a girl, so she gave it a double name just to be safe. She named it after two of her best friends. Judy Dahlhauser and Tom Vinson — Judy-Tom. The Moultons live in an apartment and the basement entrance must be reached by going outdoors, so it was finally decided it would be better for everyone concernec if Judy-Tom were given away So the cat was taken to the Chrome Cafe where Marpare Beamish reports that the anima has put on royal airs. JuJy-Torr was there only a short time be fore she made it plain to the dog in the establishment that she was to have first rights at mealtirv-. The cat lakes her new job .1 = mouse-catcher very seriously. • * • The Lloyd Piatt's dog, Slcippy. raised a family of five last year. With the three sons, Jim, Dick and Larry, and the six dogs, Mrs. Pratt thought she had quite a house full. The boys wanted to keep all of the dogs and UK- parents were fond of them, too, but good homes were finally iuunJ for all of the puppies. Skippy, proud of her success as a mother, promptly decided to raise another family. But things are not so complicated this winter. Skippy's family consists of one lone pup who already has a home waiting for him when he is ready to leave his mother. I hesitate to tell you what this week's recipe is for. After all how corny can I get? But. I have been f oing to tell you about this one or some time and it just seems appropriate to use it here. It's ior Hot Dogs! Bernice Lee first told me about them a couple of years ago. Incidently. there are quite a few Lees in Algona right now, and, I think, more than one Bernice Lee. This is the one who teaches school and whose husband is a railway mail clerk, E. G. Lee. For the Hot Dogs use your favorite raised roll recipe. In my case, it's one-half of a package of roll mix. Let the dough raise up to the time when you form the rolls. Roll out on a floured board, in circular shape, about one-half inch thick. Spread vvith melted butter and mustard, if you like. Cut the dough in wedges like you would pie and roll each wedge around a wiener and fasten with toothpicks. Bake in a 425 degree oven about ten minutes These are a good thing to serve to your hungry little boy scouts or teen- Minnesota Couple Wed Friends here have received the announcement of the marriage of Beatrice Sabin, daughter ol Mrs. Olive Sabin of Fairmont, and Harvey E. Larson of Granada. Minn., on Jan. 1, at Fairmont. Beatrice graduated from tho Swea City high school, CLiss of 1941. Her parents farmed in E;iglc township before moving to Minnesota.

Dear Subscriber Since this is the time of year when the majority of The Algona Jpper Des Moines subscriptions become due for renewal, it is impossible to keep our records up-to-date day by day. However, as ,'our credits come through, they are handled within a week. With the combination offer of both Algona newspapers many of you have received statements from each newspaper office. The aroeedure in handling these requires at least a week. So, if you nave received a statement from one office after you paid the other office and it was within a week's time, you may rest assured that the credit will be taken care of properly. A subscription to the Upper Des Moines still costs only $3.00 per year. This is the same price which has prevailed for the past five years. Five years ago your $3.00 bought 524 pages . . . today, this past year, your same $3.00 bought 1166 pages, or twice as much for your money. A combination subscription to both Algona papers is still $5.00 per year.
