The Algona Upper Pes Moines, Algona» Iowa, Jan. 11, OLDffiYINGTON DAYS DISCUSSED - BY HORACE MANN Death of Lttella Andruss Dilts Recalls Memories of Irvington School Days (By Horace Marni) Long Beach, California, Dec. 20, 1933. Bdltors Algona Upper Des Molnes: There are two Items In the Algona Upper Des Mblnes of December 7, that especially invite comment. The first la the obituary notice of Luella Andruss XNltB, reporting her passing away at her home In Randolph, Iowa. A typographical error In the headline said "In Illinois.'' This to relatively unimportant, although, of course, annoying to the editor and confusing to the reaJer who does not know which state to the correct one, and so I repeat, Iowa. But I am sure vou will be srlad to have fcom me a brief tribute to the memory of Luella Andruss Dllts, who was my sister Alice's most Intimate friend, be- in* S months voun<rer, (born March 1, and June 2, 1865) and it to quite remarkable that both have passed away this year and within flve months ol «ach other. The schoolhouse where we all went to school, stood on the southwest corner of the Andruss farm, and 1 recall as teachers, Alice Patter.glll, Sheldon Baney, Abram Crose, J. P. Oolby, Stella Hudson (Reed), Clayton Strangers Prove to be Old Pal* It was early morn In late December. It ww dark. The train on the Milwaukee railway had Just come In and two passengers had slighted. One of them hurried forth into the darkness toward the town which was Algona. The other followed a few paces behind and finally caught up with his unknown companion of the wee, small hours of this particular morning, "Hi-ya," said the first, by way of opening the conversaltlon. "Hi-ya," replied the second. They walked In silence for a few blocks. "Didn't know anyone on the train beside myself was headed for Al- prona," continued the first. Where did you get on?" "Charles City," the second answered. "Where you from?" "Oh, 'Ohllbagd," came the irepty. "Sav. doesn't the old town look good?" Upon that remark which was delivered with much enthusiasm, the second speaker looked sharply at the speaker who at the same time was gazing at his listener. "Well, L'U be ," they chorused, with additional, various and similar exclamations. And the two mysterlouslv figures who. (to keen you readers from further suspense) answer to the names of Maurice McEvoy and Harold Strelt pumped each other's arm with a misto that bespeaks only of old acquaintances who have long been separated. ben Purcell built the first cabin, was •£ TM ^r * « • mtBUmmmm •» *• •** ••«™ - — — — AT RETURN OF RELATIVES ON HOLIDAY Polks From All Sections Back to Spend Yule Season at Home Hutchins, (5 terms), Cornelia T. Dodd, It lor himself or for Clark? The Ma- lachl Clark place was the present Robert Gaffney farm, and the log cabin stood a considerable distance northeast from the Oaffney home. I do not believe that the statement, "soon after William Clark and Hiram Wiltfong built cabins," Is quite In accordance with fact, nor the statement that "later that fall Jacob Wright, Thomas Robison and Philip Crose families built cabins near where the old Mann place Is located." If It said that Hiram Wiltfong built soon after the Clark family occupied their cabin, and that Philip Crose built a cabin on the Mann place, where the twins, James and Joseph, the first white children born In Kossuth county, were born on Homer I. Wasson, J. J. Wilkinson, Agnes Garfleld, Joseph crose, Mar?hnll E. Lumbar and Lettle Hutchins. That I'st contains two who were afterward County Superintendents of Schools, one wife of a superintendent, and one who was county surveyor, county auditor and state representative, material for a chapter of Kossuth county hls'ory, and I have only named the earlier teachers who taught. Luella Andruss and the Carlons, Armstrongs, Manns, Croses and many others who were privileged to attend the school usually known as the "Andruss school" until the Andruss farm was purchased by A. P. Ives, and Zebina C., and Amanda (Armstrong) Andruss moved to Kan- MS to make their home. John and loefla Dills with Virgil had previously located at Randolph. Bernice was teaching in Algona when I came home from Buffalo. New York, In 1911, and afterward married Prof. Spauldlng. I believe, at Nora Springs, and they have two sons. The other news items referred to Above also concerns Irvington township and mentions "the old Mann place," so of course I want to gets Its historical setting accurately stated. The statement that, "the Malachl Clark family were the first veal settlers of Irvington township and took possession of their cabin in April, 1855." I telleve la historically correct. If Ru- Compare The Plymouth With any other car in the Low Price Field. That's all we ask. ELBERT Garage Dodge & Plymouth August 25, 1855, It would have been historically correct I believe It Is true that Philip CTOM sold his claim and cabin to William Cl.irk, who wanted to adjoin his father's place, and then Mr. Crose went over north of the Purcell Creek, and built a cabin which was the Crose home for many years. I am possibly the on- .y iran living who can locate both the Malachl Clark cabin and the birthplace of the first white child born In Kossuth county, and so I thank your Irvington correspondent for bringing out this discussion of Kossuth county hl- Ftory. Sincerely yours, Horace Mann.

However, the 1933 rush for 1934 plates is a litMe better than was the case a year ago, he added. Special numbers have been requestet by a good many persons. A few o the number for 1934 are as follows: 65- to Martin Dufly of Whittemore. 55-1 to TJ. S. Senator L. J. Dickinson, 55-3 to E. W. Lusby of Algona, and 65-5 ; to J. A. McDonald of Algona. W.
