4-AlgeriQ Upper Pet Molhet , fabua^y 1 f, Ravings CO by CHRIS REESE |A Little of This, a Llllle I of Thai; Not Much \ of Anything. '• There seems io be considerable .v»<WMflg«dpne.. in this world 'hose clays, too much in fact, and ^n'.tl.iei other clay- I made the £tj, "1 licts, ^ntl Contacted some of " : iy...rfi|j z f r is td" get the side angle i'T tnis 1 worry;, business and I've i./out decided there isn't much • ; worry about, after all, because ... account of L.

Brown said if we're : <ing to bo sick there's only twc lyings., to worry about, whethe .' c'rt 1 going, to livo or whethe .' '.-'re going to die, and if we're (ing to live there's nothing to 1 orry about and Dr. E. J. Cape- ;us.said.if we were going to die ; UI'L; ..would be only two things • wpt'i'y 1 about, whether we are -. .liner tri-.huayen or some othei •iia'ce'.' and Bill Dan said if we -cnt-16-heaven there would be iothin'jj}>;-.;to.. \vorry about and 1 •fijim". ftl'^-t 'if we go some other .<:ace-we'll probably meet many /'. o'tiK friends ynd be so busy haldng ,"fi'ands that we won't i:ivt''-time to do any worrying so ' speak 1 ;- So, after"all. this wor- ]•••• business ma.\- prove to be •'.rsely .mental and imagination•y activity, because on account )' there is a lot of unnecessary done every day any- -'I'm'; dull/as .all get out aboul 'TM InVt I can tell the difference :, 'iu-cen a kernel of corn and a •-.• ;:tcrmc-lon seed because on ac'• Hint of the melon seed is dark'. And the other day I met Mil Rrtitjtftrjbevg and he had an ' ii'-di corn grown in Clay county ,!;.<! it was a peach and so he •-. ive me two kernels and he gave J ,'arolcl Kuchenreuther two ker- j els and'be'gave Bill Giossi two 'kernels and we're going to do .-- jmr; experimenting with 'em.!rl is going to make "Kix" i i'..'aklast cereal out of his ker- . .'!s. Bill is going to make some- :irch our off-his kernels and I'm .- ""« tu,build a still and make 'inc corn whiskey out of my •-. " kernels. Bill Curtis told me ..:t 1 shrink! take on a course iln corn learning and I'd find tha this still whiskey stuff wasn't s hot. There is one brand of cor that I know all about, however because oh account of I've go one on one of my toes and it 1 hybrid aftd well developed but keep it covered with sock anc shoe but I'm told that the brand of corn 1 grow isn't worth i tinker's darn for stilling whis key, and one of these days : hope to trim it to a perfect noth ingness, so to speak. The organization of ihe Pipe Puffers and Ring Blowers Association in Algona is proceeding nicely and two new and recenl nembers are Jim Lytle and Chick Long, both having good jipes, though Jim told me that ic recently ruined a good pipe when he tried to give it a good cleaning and dropped it into the vashing machine but it ruined he pipe, to say nothing what he strength of the pipe did to he machine, so he saysi Chas. Ostwinkel would make a good ecretary of the Algona Pipe Buffers and Ring Blowers be- ause on account of he's got sev- n pipes, and a typewriter on vhich to write the minutes of :ie meetings. It just goes to show that folks ain't afraid of me because on account of they call me all kinds of names, so to speak, and the other day Harold Gilmore said "Hello, Handsome," and a little later I met Gene Schemel and he said "Hello, Noisy," and then I met Bill Barry Sr. and he said "Hello, Baldy," and if I had met someone and they had said "Hello. Nut," then I'd have called it a day. But I don't give a Tinker's Toot what anybody calls me because that indicates they ain't mad at me. It's the bird who doesn't call me anything ever that is kinder sore or hasn't any lime for me, so to speak. • Ware's A Tip If You Nkk A Fender! According to ihe law of Iowa any driver of a vehicle which collides with art unattended, ve hide shall slop immediately. Me shall then locale and Jell ihe owner or operator of the unattended vehicle his name and address. If no one can be found ihe driver shall leave a noie in a conspicuous place, giving his name and address and relating he circumstances of ihe Accident. Many times drivers return to heir parked cars to find crump- ed fenders or a smashed-in grill. No one saw the accident; no one knows who did it. Biit he damage was clone, usually hrough no fault of the driver of he parked car. Collisions of his kind are common when the treets are icy. The operators of vehicles vhich cause this type of acci- ent think they are getting away vith something and in most cases dp not realize they are disobeying a law. Traffic laws are founded on ordinary courtesy, and a courteous person does not try to escape his liability if h damages the property of anoth er. So don't leave without expla nation if you scrape fenders will an unattended vchcilo. Ne'x time the tables might be turned and, it is against the law. Union Plans Complete Plans are rapidly, gbihg\&f ward for presentation- ^ef the Union iwp.,.Farm Institute,,*' <fe for Thursday, Feb. 26, *, dt*" the Good Hope church.

Places don't close up on Valentine day but it's different on birthdays of notables and the postoffice, the Danks and the liquor store were closed tight on Thursday, no bank open in which I could draw ny breath and it was a holiday tor me not getting my daily duns it the postoffice. I'm going to vrite my congressman and have my birthday, the longest day in he year, declared a legal holiday and maybe we can arrange to nake it the official session day or the coffee gulpers in thi's country. And wouldn't that be something if Algona would be host to near. 6,000 gulpers here on a clay when the sun shone on us nearly fifteen hours in one stretch?
