Pathfer Warzawa, pastor here some years ago. Business Business is good, the stock is in good shape, a full assortment of everything, and all bills paid. I do not owe a cent to anyone on earth. Times are looking up a little, at least people are feeling better than a month ago. Maybe it is the fellow-feeling that comes with Yuletide that' is creeping over us. It mellows our disposition and in the mad rush of business we stop to think of our friends and neighbors. Northern Iowa is blessed with a good intelligent people, much above the average of the United States. Some are lucky others unlucky. Some have trials and troubles and sail through stormy seas, while others are carried to the skys on flowery beds of ease. This has been a hard year for some families. I am thinking now of the little boys and girls that are not getting a fair shake. I am thinking of how they will feel Christmas eve. Whether with glad hearts they will feel that this is a pretty good old world, or will they think the world has soured on them. We can help to make good citizens of them or by neglect make criminals of them. The only object of the Goodfellows club is to help make a Merry Christmas for the children of this community. So all together, let every man and woman that can spare 25c drop it into the Christmas cheer box at Neville's Shoe Store. Every cent goes for things they need. Let us think of the children, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. Jimmie Neville The Shoe Man Announcing trees grew close to the side of the road, which was in many places too narrow for two cars to pass. Besides, the road was winding, and it is still winding, but it has been built up and widened till it can no longer be called a dangerous drive, though still ,a scenic one. Aid Supper is Postponed— The Aid met last week Wednesday at the church Annex, and 13 persons ate oyster soup furnished by the hostesses, Mrs. O. L. Miller and Mrs. Armour Lemkee. A supper which was to have been served at the Annex this week Thursday evening has 'been postponed a month. The Aid will serve sandwiches, doughnuts, pie, and coffee at the George Stewart sale next week Wednesday, Each Aid member is to sell at least six chickens before Christmas, the money to go into the Aid's treasury at the January meeting. Mrs, Win. Leigh is Patient- Mrs. William Leigh, of Amboy, Minn., who recently underwent an operation for ruptured appendix at Mankato, is doing well. She visited her sister, Mrs. Simeon Leigth, here, and her mother, Mrs. Chas. Majr- nusson, and other relatives at Al- trona Thanksgiving time. After getting home she fell ill and started doctoring at Ainboy, but became rapidly worse and was rushed to Mankato for an operation. Mrs. Leigh was formerly Jennie Magnusson, Algona. Two Join Church Sunday- After a short sermon on the Lord's Supper Sunday, communion service was held. Dorothy and Kathryn Scbulz were taken into the church on confession of faitto.
