VETERINARIAN SUFFERS MUDDY INDIGNITIES The peaceful slumbering village of Irvington doesn't provide much excitement or headline thrillers in general for the news sheets. However, such was not the case last week when an animal of the bovine specie belonging to Gerald Frankl became ill with milk fever and also at about the same time became lodged in a muddy creek. Now Gerald, wishing to save the animal, immediately called for aid from the senior member of a certain veterinary firm at Algona. Such cases are treated by injecting serum into the blood stream and in order to do so this aforesaid doctor had to get astride of the cow's neck to reach the jugular vein. The reaction was instantaneous, in fact too soon for the injector to reach dry 'ground, hence Mrs. Cow was revived and at the same time relieved herself of the burden on her back by giving one lunge and the doctor was at another place in a perfect mud puddle lying flat upon his back. Spectators have reported this episode to be one of the most exciting to have occurred in this vicinity for some time. However Doc was given clean clothes by some of the good Irvington people and he proceeded on-his way as usual. horns'frofe Mcliana recently and has b&ff visiting her,parents, the .L. H, Rents o!
