And So the Box 0! Odds and Ends" Was Laundered The laundry clerk called an Algona-housewife last Week on the telephone. .She said, 'Tfpnr laundry Is all done and we'll deliver It with your dry cleaning;. The lady, bewildered, replied, "What laundry? I always do my own." "Why the laundry you left on the porch waiting for tno h °y-" "I didn't leave anything on the porch. We just moved in— unless it could bo that box of odds and ends we haven't broucnt in yet," replied the lady, as the lifjht dawned. The laundry delivered the package for identification and the lady, embarrassed, admitted they were hers. The men's rld- Inir' breeches, dust cloths, fifty- two assorted tics, hair ribbons, n lady's hat, and numerous stock- iiiKs without mates, weren't so hard to explain but what really stumped them at the laundry were the coat hangers, plumber's friend and children's toys Included In the box. As most things do, It all came out In the wash, when another lady one block down the street called and asked why the laundry hadn't picked up the wash she had setting out on the porch for a day or so. The laundry apologized to both ladies and explained about the new delivery boy and peace and quiet again settled over the McGregor street telephone wires.
