Aero Service Station Snow in Los Angeles Too MRS, BOWYER SAYS NATIVES ARE SURPRISED By Nellie G. Bowyer. Hollywood, Calif., Jan. 19—1 a real surprise one morning week. On looking outdoors I everything covered with sleet had last saw and snow. Everything was white. It was a great delight to the young folks, some of whom had never before seen- snow. It did no harm, and was no longer to be seen at 10:30. This occurrence was really "unusual," for such a thing had not been known here before during the whole time that the local federal weather bureau had been in opera- when we walked. We also wore unbleached muslin underwear,, chemise and "drawers." The "lingerie" of that period wa's "different." I remember that my mother always planried to have it new for the winter, for new stuff was warmer than worn stuff washed many times. We didn't know, then, how silk, or even Ayon, felt, eo didn't mind the woollen stuff much, except that it was "itchy." I think our wraps were shawls, and we wore nubias around our heads and necks. My sister 'Lib- ble's was pink and white, and mine was blue and white, and how pretty we thought they were. I think girls of 13 and 14 today would hesitate to take such a ride In an open sleigh, though dressed in furs. Speaking of clothes brings back other memories. When anything new was bought for me I always wanted blue, but my sister, a. brunette, wanted red. She was older than I, so when she outgrew any- tion, which is some'thing more than thing « was handed dowri to me. 50 years. And It happened the very i Ugh, how I hated the stuff. And I morning following a* letter I had had red hair! written Mr. Dewel to come out here and recuperate in our . balmy climate! However, Los Angeles is now herself again, and the invitation is still open. Our little Algona club met at Pasadena last week with Mrs. Morrison, whose husband was once the partner of her sister's husband, K. D. James, and I was surprised to Dog Knows Electricity Is No Joke [Forest City Summit.] There Is a leakage 6'f electricity somewhere In the vicinity of the' front of the' Palace -Of Sweets. It has been noticed for spme time. "Speed," that's the Spaniel noticed it first, and although he made a "holler" about it, nothing was done until Speed refused to go through the door. The threshold is metal and that seems to be charged sufficiently to give a dog a shock, but not to people. It is worse in wet waather and some have advanced the theory that it comes from the underground cable for the electroliers. A rubber mat now covers the place, but Speed Is still auspicious. FENTON- BOYS, R - i 3IRLS Lakotan Makes Report of State F. B. Meeting Lakota, Jan. 26—Mrs. J. H. War- meet Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Peterson and Mrs. Peterson's mother, Mrs. Norton, there. They have an apartment at Long Beach, near their son, Lieut. Mel Peterson, and his vife, the latter being one of the C. B. Murtagh girls. Mel's battleship, the New York, is stationed there. Chas. McCoys In California. Mr. and Mrs. Charles McCoy, Minneapolis, are also spending the winter here. Mr. McCoy lived a few years at Algona', and. Mrs. McCoy Js my old friend Mattie Robinson. Her father was a conductor on the Milwaukee, and they lived across the street north of -the present' city library, where Mrs. Lewis now lives. Later they moved to Minneapolis. The Mrs. Robinson of that time died some years ago. Mr. Robinson, who married again, lived for some time at Los Angeles, where he died last fall at the age of 87. The McCoys live at a hotel, but keep their car here. Mrs. McCoy had spent most of her winters of late years with her father. She was one of the most devoted daughters I have known. Though we used to visit back and forth, we hadn't of late years kept in touch, so neither of us knew that the other lived here till informed last winter by our mutual friend, Mrs. Charles Waldo, Xearly AVent West Tears Ago. Mrs. Robinson once wanted to take me with her and Mattie on a trip to California. That was "away back when" not only a railroat man's family but friends could trave on passes. But the Robinsons moved away, eo the trip never materialized. For 15 years Mr. McCoy had no been in good health. He though there was something the matter with a tooth, but the dentists were not able to detect anything wrong and so objected to extracting it. On his insistence, however] it was finally pulled, and at the instant of extraction he felt something snap in his head. Then it was discovered that tooth had been pressing on a nerve. He has been in vigorous health ever since. Mr. McCoy was a successful lumberman, and he shipped all his lum- er from this coast. He retired ome time ago. After their mar- iage Mattie went into his office nd helped him six years, for fhlch he gave her $10,000 a year— omethlng more than most hus- ands give their wives for helping hem! Prairie Fires Terrifying. I like to hear and talk about the Id days. Mrs. Brace's recent arti- le, in the U. D. M.-R. on Pioneer Jays in Iowa reminded me of indents in my own life. No one who las not experienced it can realize he horror of a prairie fire. We ived in the country when I was nine, and one late afternoon in the 'all, when, the grass was dry and .here was still much 'open country, ve discovered a prairie fire sweep- ng towards us. Our only near neighbors, Mr. McCall, father of Dell McCall, and Mr. Brooks, father of Mrs. William Carlon, rushefl over to help my stepfather hastily start a backfire in the rear of the barn. They finished just in time :o save us. Back-firing was burning a narrow strip which the fire could not jump. My mother senl me out to bring in clothes spread on the grass to dry. I remember that I was so frightened that couldn't utter a sound. A Itldo at 30 Below. Another occurrence, which happened in the winter, was when I was 13. My seatmate at school (a- burton returned Friday from Des Moines, where she attended the state Farm Bureau convention.
