Ottosen Elevator Expands The new elevator being built at Ottosen is scheduled for completion the middle of July at a cost of $78,000, including the cost of the razing of the old elevator, grading and completion of the new building. The Co-op has also purchased a quonset in the east part of town. According to Alfred Schultz, manager, the new elevator will be about 100 feet high and will have two distributing legs so thai the 50,000 bushel capacity elevator can be loaded and emptied at the same time. (Photo courtesy Humboldt Independent) Mrs. Leo Arndorfer called on me yesterday and while she was here Mrs. Russell Cook came in. After introductions Ruth said, "Your husband went to school to me when I taught rural school between Wesley and St. Benedict." Upon leaving, the two went to the porch where Ruth asked Leo if he knew her. He didn't recognize her for it has been orer 50 years since he went to school to her. Ruth said she recognized him but wondered it she would have had she not been told before hand who he was. The years DO make changes. Mrs. John Helmers was here yesterday, too, seeing the women with whom she had worked 19 years and seeing some of the residents. She quit her work here on doctor's orders but says she would give a lot to be able to comeback. She missesthe companionship and associations. Some apropro answers to How's Business: Tailor - "Sew- sew"; Electrician - "Pretty Light"; Farmer - "Growing"; Dentist - "Nerve racking"; Astronomer - "Looking up"; Carpet salesman - "Rugged* ; Author - "All write." While on the subject of anniversaries, I will mention that Perry' Phillips was 85 May 17 and his daughter, Mrs. Mick Michaelson, Denver, Colo./came to spend a few days with him. They dropped in to see me and also called on Katherine McMurray. I told Mr. Phillips I could remember so well how Fd watch him and his late »ife dance. With a twinkle in his eyes he said, 'Td bve to get out on the floor and do some more." To which I said, "Amen ' So would I!" I had a chat with Mrs. Marie Orren the other day. 1 have seen her collection of tells arid told her I wish I could get a hold of them. Fll bet I could arrange the different toned ones and play a tune. She has them in a glass- fronted case now, which eliminates that tedious job of dusting so many. She gave her sleigh bells to her grandson, David Higbee. They are worth a good price now. I wish I had Dad's back to sell. We got "flim-flammed" out of quite a sum 'DV a man who snld a wagon load of barn accessories of his and were to receive a percentage. We never were able to get the percentage. F\ - e always felt resentful. The graduating class of 1926 is planning a reunion and I was asked the address of Lyle Stebbins, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Stebbins. The Stebbins moved to Good Thunder, Minn., many years ago and that was the only address I knew, if anyone knows this is incorrect, or knows his right address, please phone or write to Alma Pearson. Mrs. Charles Fox phoned roe that she had received word of the death Mother's Day of Welcome Johnston (Mrs. John Donegan), Phoenix, Ariz. Welcome was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Jack Johnston and lived neighbor to us when they came frorr, Bancroft. Mrs. Marie Kunz has a grand- daurfrter, Dena Gopelrud, dangh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Gopel- rud, Mason City, who was recently named winner of the annual Iowa Federation of Labor A. F. C. LO.S scholarship award of $500. She can use it at any college or university of her choice. More than 600 Iowa high school seniors were participants. Judging was based on a written test and an essay. * * * To prove we have had some really cold weather earlier in the month I will quote Audra Kenefick, "The water in the bird bath was frozen." Well, they are well on their way by this time on their vacation abroad, having left the 16th. I wish I could peep in on them and see just where they are now. * * * .Another big tree was taken down the other day, one near Don Prews to make it possible to get the George McVay house moved to the lot next east and to be occupied by the John Sires. I had expected to see it moved from the road' ! to the lot, but was so busy all morning, by the time 1 got up to see what was going on, it had been placed on the site it is to occupy. There is a lot of machinery and heavy timbers involved and men are at work under the house digging the basement. The walls are to be made, then the house lowered onto them. Take a tip from area businessmen: Kossuth Motor Co. Algona, Iowa Now you can give your whole house the same dependable gas air conditioning that cools modern hospitals, office buildings, apartments, schools, etc. Gas air conditioning has an unmatched record of performance in business and industrial installations. And these are the reasons. A gas cooling unit has no moving parts, which means it cools quietly and dependably, with no loss of efficiency over the years, with virtually no maintenance. And gas cools economically. Aren't these the same things you're looking for in a central air conditioning system for your home? Find out how simple it can be to cool your whole house with gas air conditioning. See your gas company for the names of dealers who sell gas air conditioning equipment. Gas makes the big difference.

After much - what shall I call it doodling around, I am back on my own antenna and rotor and am receiving perfect TV reception. Fm not blaming anyone or making any complaints - last remarking on results after what Fd call an experiment. 1 was so happy to see my cousin Eirry Goddard's widow, Vinnie of Wichita, Kans., the other day. She was visiting relatives at Rolfe and so in hopes she could find a suitable place there to locate. She is so lonely in Wichita now that my cousin and her sister Ethel are both gone. * * * People passing by and looking at my north window see a pretty pink "something" hanging there. They don't know what it is, but some have come in to find out. It is a glamorized dish "rag" pink nylon net with little flowers stuck in it. Of course, if it were to be used on dishes, the posies would be removed. It is a gift from Falrie Kuhn. Knuth Mehl, Mr. Nasby's assistant till September, was mowing the lawn the other day and came across a nest of tiny, dark brown rabbits. He ran over two thinking they were mice, then brought one to show us proving it was really a wee bunny. Very cute, but he soon took it back to it's "home." The lindquist girls had a pair of white rabbits - and soon there were rabbits and rabbits and rabbits and rabbits. They took a few to Davenport. * * * The birthdays of "Papa" Knopf, Viva Giddings and Mae Ramus were observed May 10. Jon* 2, Little Rebecca Orion has learned in about six months that life isn't always a bed of roses, far too early tohave "miseries.' She was having breakfast with mama Darlene and Papa Web the other morning, gurgling and smiling, and then all of a sudden her world changed. She had come in contact with the toaster and suffered a burned finger on the under side on her left hand. She was taken to St. Ann for dressings and this sounds very serious. It isn't, but her parents took no chances, and since youngsters recover rapidly, she'spro- bably as good as new by this time. And like all parents, they probably suffered more than she did. ANNIVERSARY Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Reynolds of Maquoketa observed their 60th wedding anniversary with a family dinner there last March 21st. The same day Mr. Reynolds celebrated his 81st birthday. Mrs. Reynolds will be 80 on June 1. NOW IN MINNEAPOLIS Nationally Famous HYATT lOO Where Old-World lnnkeepin| Hospitality ii Revived Everything you ever imagined.

Make Strong Communities "He taketh the wise in their own craftiness." -Job 5:13 In his first epistle to the Corinthians, Paul the Apostle reminded that the Lord knew the vain thoughts of many who professed to be the wise men of the world. Pride is a basic emotion. Every man has the right to be proud of a noteworthy achievement, in business, in education, in good works; yet pride and glory are not necessary companions. It is wrong, as Paul explains, to glory so much in our achievements that we magnify our importance. Earthly achievement is nothing if man is so taken with himself that he becomes short-sighted and does not recognize the great glory that is God's.
