Mr. and Mrs. Cy Harrington, and to greet his many friends as well.

G. A. Frontier Days Sale Starting Friday, May 22 The boys up at the state highway garage have a great eye lor beauty, whether its the kind that walks about on two legs, or is just lying still. An evidence of this is the fact that the lawns about the grounds are kept nicely trimmed and are also decorated with tulip beds that are just now at about their best bloom. There have been happy days down on the Henderson Prairie farm of Mr. and Mrs. Irving Deering since last Saturday forenoon, when the great family bird, Dr. Stork, left a dandy bouncing 9'/& -pound baby boy at their home and bestowed upon this worthy couple parental honors for the first time. Charles is the name this little lad will wear and may he long live to bless the home of his proud parents. Mr. and Mrs. Helmio Meyer and family, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Meyer and family, Mr, and Mrs. Elmer Hdth and family, Mr. and Mrs. "Ding" Eberling and family were down Bob's Creek last Sunday afternoon, in the Reif neighborhood, doing a bit of fishing and reports that are fully verified give positive proof that Ding got a real whopper, the one fish providing a regal feast for the entire group that evening on their return home. Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Moody of Excelsior, Minnesota, drove into Postville last Saturday evening on a week-end visit to her father, R. F. Hecker, and her brothers, R. M. and Joe Hecker. We enjoyed a little chat with Lowell, during which we found him the same friendly fellow he used to be when a Postville resident and we were also pleased to note that the depression had made no dent in his waist line. They left for home again on Sunday afternoon. Elmer Hoth informs us that the Postville Lumber Co. has sold eleven tractor corn cultivators so far this season, which is evidence that farm prosperity is again with us. That is quite a change in corn cultivating from the old days when a kid had to ride a horse attached to a plow that required two trips to the row. And was it some sport riding the ridge pole of an old horse with a bit of sheepskin thrown on to save a bit of the rider's skin. A large and happy throng of relatives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Gor don Lawson, newlyweds, assembled at Turner Hall last Saturday evening and tendered this worthy couple a rousing post-nuptial parcel shower. The evening was spent pleasantly in dancing until midnight when an elab orate picnic supper was served, after which all repaired to their respective homes, leaving behind a huge array of useful and beautiful gifts that will work in right handily in the establish ment of the new home. The Couple Club gave Mrs. George Kohlmann a neat surprise at her home on Sunday evening in honor of her birthday anniversary. The guests came provided with huge baskets of eats and spread a sumptuous feast at the six-thirty dinner that was heartily enjoyed by all. The evening was passed pleasantly at Bridge, the prize winners being Mr. and Mrs. Erwin L, Klingbeil, J. W. Steele, Mrs. T. R. Collins. Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Casten, On leaving the guests wished for Mrs. Kohlmann many happy returns of the day. Mr. and Mrs. Herman Schutta and family arrived in. Postville last Saturday evening with their household effects after a several years residence in Chippewa Falls, Wis., and have already settled down to housekeeping in their own home on Postville's north side. Welcome back to the old home town. Attorney James F. Drew of Waukon was a Postville business visitor Tuesday and took time off to call at this office to place an announcement in the Herald regarding his candidacy for county attorney on the democratic ticket. Mr. Drew, who held the county attorneyship for one term, from 1932 to 1934, has no opposition at the' primary so will undoubtedly have the solid support of his party vote. ; In conversation with Ed Green on Monday he informed us that the Green sugar bush, near Castalia, had a very good season this year, the output of syrup totaling about 400 gallons. He says they have had better years and some that were not as good, but he figures this year's output a very satisfactory one. The Green sugar bush is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, in the state, and has for many years been turning out a goodly supply of quality products. Ray R. Douglass, secretary to Congressman Fred Biermann in Washington, D. C, arrived here last Thursday and remained until Sunday evening among local relatives and friends. His visit here had no connection with his official capacity but rather a strictly personal business and social mission. He reports his family well after a winter's siege of minor ailments and that they are anxious to return here for the summer vacation as soon as congress adjourns. W. T. Schwartzhoff of Waukon was in Postville on Monday and Tuesday meeting and greeting the democratic voters, he being a candidate for sheriff at the June primaries. Mr. Schwartzhoff is an Allamakee product and has spent the greater part of his lifetime here during which he has made many friends who are supporting him in his campaign. He informs us that he is not connected with any group or clique whose strings he would have to handle if he were elected. He is making a thorough canvass of the democratic voters as time will permit. Frank W. Eaton of Long Beach, Cali fornia, surprised the natives of his old home town last Sunday forenoon by dropping off the forenoon bus for a visit to relatives and many friends. The natives, however, were not all he surprised, as on his arrival here he went first to the home of his aunt, Mrs. Geo. Waters, and she being at church and "Tim" being pretty tired, he proceeded to roll into bed and was soon fast asleep, and it was a pretty much surprised aunt that came home from church to find a strange man had occupied one of her beds in her absence. Then he proceeded to pass on another surprise on his wife, who arrived here that day with her sister, Mrs. Morgan, and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gates, from Oshkosh, Wis., as Mrs "Tim" had had no communication to the effect that he was coming. How ever, everything has been ironed out and explained nicely, and all of us are glad to welcome these fine folks back to their old home town again.
