Day of "Unusual" Weather. The weather in southern California has been almost 100 per cent sunshine in January. Today, however, finds the sky overcast, and maybe we shall get the much- needed rain. Last Sunday we drove to Montrose (the flooded area), and it is truly a sorry sight. Ross Stebbins, former Algona barber, now has cataracts on both eyes, and so is in almost total dai'kness. His general health hasn't been at all good in the last few months. They live here in Pomona. Frank is selling local fresh MARRIED WINOEI^T OF WEQL.E.V.

' Compliment from Whittemore. 0. J. Kaschmitter, valued Whittemore subscriber, was kind enough to say: "I appreciate the reduced price and the extended subscription you are giving me. You are putting out a fine paper, and it's Just good business to be a subscriber." Mr. Kaschmitter is a business man, and he expresses a thought that the Advance has long held, to- wit, that business men who do not take and carefully read their home papers are passing up many things that it would be helpful in a business way to know. 80-Year Subscriber Writes. Geo. H. Barr, Redfield, S. D., is an old and faithful subscriber who still takes the paper after many years of residence elsewhere. Under date of January .22 he said: "We can't get along without your paper. I have taken it more than, 30 years, ever since the day of Ben Reed, and it is almost a household necessity for us. It keeps in touch with the old home town. The Barrs are all enjoying good health. The times are a little hard, but a good crop will put everyone on his feet again." Where Hops Are Crops. John Diehl, Mt. Angel, Ore., must live in a district where agricultural products are used in the manufacture of beer or other liquors. Anyhow he says: "[Repeal of prohibition has brought prosperity to this part of the country, for hops bring better prices, and the crop was very good. Other grain crops were good too, and prices are on the up grade." Mrs. F. J. Sessions, 'Davenport, sister of W. J. (Bourne, Union township, has taken the paper many years, and recently she wrote: Your annual greeting is at hand, and even though there is a good place for every dollar in this household, we are going to "skimp" somewhere and send two dollars for the Advance. We enjoy its weekly visits and the news about our old-time friends. Free's Poem Appreciated. Mrs. Hattie Gilbert, Ontario, Calif., said that she had Just received her home paper of January 18 and had read it as usual, including, the poem by George H. Free, "an/d I want to tell you I think you did/ a good work when you encouraged Mr. Free to write poetry, am one who likes to read the news from the old home town."
