In those days the trips were mad c by team, and the 4000 miles he drove were long; were hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

Mrs. Ethel Mansmlth, of Woodland, 111., regretted inability to come for the homecoming, and said the invitation made her homesick to see her old friends in Good Hope and Union township. Community Is Praised. Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Grostefon, of Star City, Ind., rejoiced that the B EE KYIwE brings a sensational act to the Kossuth county fair when she dives from a 100-ft. ladder into a tiny tank of water. She makes her daring and graceful plunge from a backward position, and is in a class by herself in high diving. The feat is performed twice from 20 to 70 years. resume of a sermon .-., .Fisher at the Methodist camp at the lakes, which she heard this summer. Julia Bourne, daughter of Mr. and .Mrs. \V. J.

Mr. Wood discovered that In the audience were three who had attended the church since it was built, eight former members now living elsewhere, 35 who were born in the neighborhood, 20 who attended Sunday school since they h'ave been old enough to attend, and there were less than 20 who would be counted as visitors. Good Hope church has been an mtstfanding mark in religious circles for years, and a couple of years ago was the subject of an editorial In has had a great part in its success. TOURISTS ROBBED OF $100 BY BANDITS NEAR FAIRMONT Mr. and Mrs. William Hackel, of Chicago, were forced off the road near Fairmont last week Tuesday, the Rlngsted Dispatch reports, and svere robbed of $100. The Hackels noticed a car following them after they left Fairmont, but. paid little attention till'the trailing car drove alongside some ten miles east oC Fairmont, and forced the Hackel car into the ditch. Two bandits got out of the car armed with revolvers, and took purses from both Mr. and Mrs. Hackel. Mr. Hackel had $000 in traveler's checks, which were returned to him when the bandits inspected them. The Hackels scured each of the .four days of the fair ter Schoby family expected to bo present, but were prevented by another engagement so sent greetings and flowers. The Robert G.

The fact that Good Hope continues to thrive and prosper is a tribute to the people 1 who make tfp tha township. Mrs. Julia P. Brace, in a letter to the church, .regretted that _she could not be present, and sent greetings to former neighbors " and friends. Mrs. Anna Barr, of. Eden, Idaho, wrote that she had not forgotten the pleasant' and Happy, days in Gooc Hope, regretting that It was Impossible to bring back "Those happy fleeting days." Ina Salisbury Gra menz, of Silvis, 111., sent best wishes, remarking that '"to us who have moved away the memories of days spent at Good Hope are a bright spot of the past, and make us hope for more in the future. I perhaps did not realize so much at the time, but as years pass I realize my early training and messages received at Good Hope have left a deeper impression than words can express. I hope to have the opportunity to bring my kiddies up in as friendly a little church as I was." Invitation Recalls Old Times. Mrs. C. R.
