Wash., Aug. 17'— The other day I was at my nephew's filling station here when a Firestone tire man name in to see him. In the conversation Which became general, my nephew mentioned that I just come from Iowa. Then wife had the was Library Officials Arc Nnmed— At the August meeting of the library board last week Mrs. Walter Smith was elected president; H. T. Winter, vice president; Mrs. O. S. Pearson, secretary; Mrs. Anna Larson, book chairman. R, A. Haglund s also a member of the. board, ;:No new books will be 'bought,- as the own funds are tied up in the cloe- ed Citizens bank at Lakota. Louis Halvergon Is Bead- Louis Halverson, who .had lived Firestone man said hie born In Iowa, whereupon I, of course, asked him what part, and he answered that he thought she was born at Algonu. [She was born at Cambridge, Story county.— Editor.] Then I told him ' I was just from Algona, and asked who she was before marriage, and he said her maiden surname was Keith and that she had relatives at Algona named •Dewel. Then J said that she must be a daughter of Doctor Keith, of Casper, \Vyo., and he .said that was right. You know, I met 'the doctor, nnd I think all the family, when I •"'as in the Champlin service station there. If It had been about three hours later I could have shown him your mention ot Doctor Keith in the Colyum. . Mr. Horn — that was his name — said that he was' going to bring bis wife and son out some day. He also eaid that he would like to visit at Algona sometime, and that perhaps he would do so next spring. 1 Another Coincidence. Now, to make the day a good one, nt about the same time I was at the lunch room about 100 yards from the filling station when two men called. Some way or another the conversation turned on the Iowa picnic at Port Defiance , Park, Tacoma, August 7. One of the men had attended; and he had also been to the South Dakota ns' picnic last Sunday. And my wife found out that her cousin and this man's wife were chums 'in South Dakota. Then the other man spoke up and said that his mother was from Algona, Iowa, and remarked that he ouBht to have gone to the Iowa picnic too. It turned out that his mother was Frances Stamp, a sister of the Mrs. Felton, of whose death mention was made in the August 4 issue of the Advance. The paper had been temporarily mislaid, and my wife and sister . had forgotten just what mention was made of Mrs. 'Felton and Cora Stamp. We are saving the paper for him, as he comes in often. I am sure that he had not known of his aunt's death, as he had said-he was going to .California to visit' his aunte. They were nieces of the late Miss Dodd who for many _ years conducted a newsstand Visit the OPEN-AIR SALON here till' the last' few years, died ,of cancer at Rochester Friday. He worked five years for William Nelson, .also five: years : for Martin Mo- ilnder, Mr. Nelson was notified of the death by a brother of Louis. ' 75 Att«Dd Grant S. S.

Hay Wentworth, Ledyard farmer, told us a couple of weeks ago that he would come to the county fair if possible. He said hie chief interest would center around the dairy barns. The fair, however, has an excellent program all around, and Ray should miss none of it. Many state fair headliners will come di- pound the paper.

Farm 'Holiday .movement, and he suggested that this was what Mr, Reno was trying to accomplish. The name farmer thought that probably Reno finds the Register and. the Tribune all over the state and so singles them out for his criticism; these papers being of statewide circulation rather than sectional or county dailies. The 'plcketers said that the Register and the Tribune print the news from several times as many' towns no other newspapers and print it dally.
