>cre some rather obvious plants *n the room so it is doubtful l * any real bargains would be f( >rthcoming, at least in the antique and general art field. The Seabreeze gallery certainly had a magnificent display and U'ie man on duty stated that anything would be offered on request. However, at the front I noted the usual collection of junk and appliances which are used as the road to the inevitable offering of diamonds. - o - The finest antique shopinDay- tona is located in the Seabreeze district. The title is Treasure House and Heritage Gifts. The "heritage" covers items that come from estates, but are not necessarily of antique vintage. Everything on display was top quality and desirable. One most unusual offering was a full set f) f Lenox china with the American Kigle in .'old. The pattern was rover offered on the general market, but only to our foreign f'.ir.lomatic posts anJ, I presume, snmfi nigh domestic officials. Srtts '."oirK' on the market only if they were bought personally \>; the official concerned. This ;;ivticular set was owned by John Morehead, former envoy to Sweden. The price of $1,200 is actually less than the original purchase price early In this century. Other items from this estate were also available. Collectors of anything In silver would certainly find a visit worthwhile. The assortment of commemorative spoons would find a very fine .selection including several from Camida with enamel designs in part.. Prices on these ranged from $6.fiO up, which seemed high unless there has been a sudden surge of demand. However, I have noted that only a small percent of the usual display of this typed, so supply would be quVui limited. 1 didn't intend to purchase anything, but a carnival type compote in grape with a grape design caught my fancy, so that was that. A visit is always exposure to temptation. Seabreeze Antiques is just a short v/alk from The Treasure House find this is the part coin shop with some very nice pieces offered, - o - We drove the short distance to St. Augustine one day. I still consider it to be one of America's most interesting cities. The famous Marineland of Florida Is THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY i JULY 7 •_!_•-?

Drive carefully and help control the toll. Minor Crash A minor mishap on North Hall street here at 1:57 p.m. June 29 resulted in damage to two autos. Driver of one car was Luvern A. Wislcus, Algona. The auto was headed south and struck a parked car owned by Marcella M. Zittritsch, which was headed north on the west side of the street. Damage was slight and possible charges were pending further investigation by police. At Insurance Meet District Agent John T.Tiele- bein, 114 South Main, Algona, has just returned from a three- day Mid west-Mideast Regional Convention of Lutheran Mutual agents. The convention at the Lodge of The Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, Missouri, was devoted to new developments in sales techniques. Over 100 agents, and their wives, attended. Algona Girl To WeJ In lost In August Mr. and Mrs. Walter J. Ewen of Algona announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Marianne, above, to Larry A. Daidy, son of Mrs. G. A. Daidy and the late George Daidy of Washington, D. C. The wedding will be Aug. 23 in Washington D.C. where Mr. Daidy is employed with an insurance firm and Miss Ewen is a L.P.N. at the Suburban hospital. BLACK BASS Nine-year old Julie Munden, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Munden of Emmetsburg, can prove the fishing is good in Five Island Lake. Julie recently caught a two and three-quartex pound black bass using a black leadhead for a lure. A satisified customer is the one best sales argument. SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY 10 * 11 • 12 LITE Now the mightiest true adventure of all! JOHN FORD'S on the way. Certainly, this is a most interesting and remarkable exhibit and show, but 1 would not put it on a "must see" list, due to the admission price. Perhaps the upkeep is more than I realize, but the attraction is a strong drawing card and the crowds are large. There are at least six shows daily. The show as such lasts about 45 minutes. $2.40 for all over 11 strikes me as rather expensive family entertainment. I think it unfortunate that merit has to be so expensive. - o- I have written about St. Augustine before but it didn't take me long to discover that there was certainly a lot that I didn't cover on my previous visit. A lot of plans are being made to do more with the old parts of the city. This trip included a revisit to the interesting old fort and a very worthwhile visit to the Ripley Museum. More on this later.

Intersections Now Dangerous; Watch Driving Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, somewhat worried by the driving habits of many motorists (whether in autos, trucks or on motorbikes) undoubtedly thinking about the large number of mishaps en roads, streets and highways in Kossuth county during the first six months of the year, stated this week it was time once again to give some thought to hazardous intersections. It won't be long and the corn will be tall enough to at least partially block visibility at intersections - and foliage oftrees and larger shrubs lias already cut down considerably on just what a driver may see as ha approaches a cross road. ' Alertness is a virtue at all times - and it is more important at some times of year than at others. He urges all drivers to enter intersections with caution - and avoid high speeds on loose road surfaces.
