ALGONA, IOWA Twins I dread to see winter coming on. My wife has traded our good old double bed for two small beds. It will be a cold lonesome winter for me. Why do they call these individual bunks twin beds? It is a', misnomer. Not even a ray of hope for twins at our house. Next I suppose it will be an individual breakfast nook. I can eat my prunes and baled hay alone without grumbling, but I am on the offensive when it comes to sleeping alone in cold weather. There are things I will not do. For instance, I refuse to sell shoddy shoes to my customers. For me it is good shoes or no shoes at all. I have no rent to pay and do the work myself. I am trying to keep the home fires burning while the boys are overseas. I feel this way about it. The people of this community have been loyal to me and 1 am sure going to be loyal to them. I will sell them shoes as long as I can find good serviceable shoes to sell, and at prices the same as I have always sold them.
