Mrs. Jenkinson has a new kind of crutch or cane which has four legs, and stands firmly on the floor. She still reads fine print without glasses, being ahead of many youngsters in that respect. We gathered from her conversation that she is the only member of the family of four who was satisfied with the election. She says she was the only one who voted "right." The R. O. Bjustrom store, Algona, just east of the Foster furniture store on State street, Is thriving, just as the Bjustrom store at Hobarton grew from the time R. O. took hold of It. The Maytag agency, the Philco agency, Skelgas, Frigl- dalre, and Heatrola agencies form the basis for a business around which Roy has gathered a hardware stock, a tin shop, and a radio repair shop. The personnel Includes Ben Hynds, radio technician; Henry Neuman, tinsmith; Harold iBockes and John Nichols, sales and service departments; and Mr. Bjustrom. Last week the store had a new line in the shape of a card table which shuffles and deals a hand of bridge while another deck is being used for play. The game thus goes forward without delay. Probably M. Bjustrom would not admit that he expects .the new card table to sell as largely as some of his other lines; however, it was bringing folks Into the store to see it work. It is run by an electric motor.
