Mrs. IGhoslin, inner Algona telephone opera- r, lost ia little; daughter in the Bod. The letter token from a Mnson City Globe-Gazette Jch appeared in the AdTance January 11 was written by bother person. J have received so many letters sympathy that I want to write . one, though I Just can't but I try to give you the details of horrible thing we have gone bugh, started to ram hard December ; 2 p. m.

We never light of danger. ITater Sweeps Garage Away, ern and Jim were still up, and at 12:30 they looked out and 1 water in the street, away over curbing, but they thought only ; it was a lot of water. Then the ^phone rang, and our neighbor, idow taking care of two chili, called and said she was ecar- and wanted someone to come |r, so Jim ran over and told her come to our house and he Bid take us/all to -where it was her. woke us, and we grabbed coats, and wrapped ibed blank(around the babies.

Jim k-ted to the den closet to get his hcoat, but just then a second |l of water knocked the wall in threw him back through the and into the basement. He jie up covered with mud and told get out, for the house was bg washed away. puddy water was now running ugh the house and knocking [furniture around.

The current was prong that Marilyn was carried y like a streak when Fern lost of her. . rn got up and grabbed for her Jfell again and was being wash- way herself when two young saved her. Jim put the child .ad down by a tree, dived after' filyn, and was lost to sight. i handed Jimmie back to me, I hung onto a tree, meanwhile "wmng to him not to go, or else U would.

She did not look natural in the face, but I identified her by the feet, ears, birthmark, and navel. I thought I could never stand it, but I pulled myself through and prayed for the strength that has kept me and the rest going, l Ihope I can continue. Sleep Troubled by Dreams. •I have slept the last two nights fairly well, but 'tonight I am watching over Jim to make him comfortable so he can get some rest. _We have all ibeen in water ever since this happened, when we tried to rest. Wlhen we turn the light out and shut out eyes we can again hear the maddening noise of the water and the screams of people. We saved our clothes, but everything had .to go to the laundry and the cleaners, and I don't know how they will look when they get back. Everyone has been so wonderful. Several of our friends went into the ihouse and shoveled out sis inches of dirt on top of our rugs. Lots of furniture was broken up, and the rest ruined. The wall of the bedroom at our neighbor's was washed away, and everything in the room except the dresser was washed out. Autos Half Buried. That street and all of Glen Oaks was a sight. Every garage was washed away, and could not even be found. Jim's Cadillac was washed away a block and hatt buried with six other cars in the same pile. The Chevrolet was knocked into the corner of the third house from ours as if it had been built in the house. ISo many freakish things happened. Marilyn had a large toy hooked into her fingers, but it was not any of her own. When the street was cleared off down to the pavement it reminded me of roads back .home in winter, with drifts on each side six feet high, but of sand and dirt instead of snow. Some houses had several feet of dirt in them. Windows were broken out, and even door casings in several of our rooms were ripped off. .Husband to Hospital. I can't tell it all. You have to see it with your own eyes. People who owned homes lost everything, for there is no insurance against floods. We stayed with friends five days. Jim was in the hospital from Monday till 'Sunday. Besides injuries he suffered an awful shock, and he finds it hard to overcome. ^ had her knees injured badly, but is now coming along fine, though she is nervous and upset to bhink that it was out of her arms that Marilyn was lost. But it could lot be helped; she would probably have gone out of Ray's arms as quickly. A friend of Fern's and Jim's lost CREAM CHECKS OVER $40 FOR 31 ATTITONKA Titonka, Jan. 23 — High croam chocks have been issued to pat.rons of the Titonka creamery as follows: Bruno Stccker, $89; John Koestler, $87.80; Nick fleesoh, $84.00; J.

Courtesy COMMON highway courtesy—that good old-fashioned kind that existed in horse and buggy days—will prevent many traffic accidents. ' When you meet another fellow at an intersection, don't insist on the right of Way. If he knows you have it, fine, but if he is in an argumentative mood an accident will result unless one of you gives in gracefully. Give the pedestrian a break. Even though he may be in the wrong, slow down and let him cross the street safely. I he mi dest mannered men are often selfish boors when they get behind the wheel. Selfishness anywhere is a vice, but on the highway, where life and limb are at stake, it is doubly vicious.

II—a have for two months been intending to write, and now that you need money I will have to send you a check; and to get the most out of my 3c postage I will add a few lines. We left Algona quietly last September, loitered along, and were more tihan three weeks reaching the coast. We enjoyed it immensely. We did the Black Hills, the Yellowstone park, and the time of year was just right for comfort. Mother Nature had done a fine jo<b of coloring through the mountains west of the park, but I Jong ago ran out of adjectives on the beauties of traveling through mountain forests. We visited my wife's relatives— and she has a good many out here —first at Tacoma, then along the Coast to Los Angeles, where we were of course happy to meet our two eons and most of all an extra fine grandson. I do little traveling here, tout I have met many old tAlgonians who are always interested to talk over old times in the best little town in Iowa. I am looking forward to the famous Iowa Picnic next month, though it seems to me that Kossuth county folks do not attend as well as they once did. This will be my third time. I see that the corn loana ar perking the times up some fcac there. I am getting just a b: •homesick, even if my affairs bac there are being well cared for.
