Surprise for Pair Jfewlyweds— A group of friends surprised Mr. and Mrs. James Henry at the , - - — — *--• "* uuu en c not wealthy. They have no industries and little agriculture; they depend, for the, most part, on the tourist trade. Nearly everything lias to be imported; and from what I can gather the people pay the samos price.; as tourists do, which is a greater burden for the average Cormudian than for the tourist. Few tourists would be here unless they had "ability to pav". Enough of that—I'm on my vacation! Siprhts in the Isles. This hotel is a small one, , playing Sandwich glass, old-fash - -i- tjt.

It is three-quarters of a mlle from Hamilton, Bermuda's capital and is on "Mount" Langton— just a good sized hill back home but at that a "right smart" climb. One side overlooks Hamilton and the bay; the other, the Atlantic. The islands are said to be crescent, or quarter-moon, shaped but to me they look more like a fish hook on a map. But I suppose fish-hooks just aren't romantic enough for guide books. The larger islands are connected with bridges and extend for about "4 miles. At their widest point it is not much more than two miles across. Though here are some 300 islands in the group the total area is only ]9% miles. The popula-1 tion fe 32,000, only a little more 1 tnan that of Kossuth county. No Cars art- Allowed. You have probably read that there are no autumobiles allowed in Bermuda. Trsinsporation is "Shank's mare," by carriage, her collection of autographs, giving a vivid picture 'of her "rampage" for celebrities' signatures. She said the president's autograph was worth $15, but some movie stars' signatures even more. Valeria Pickett gave a description of Colleen Moore's doll house which she saw two years ago at Younkers in* Des Moines. This is a little house, said to have cost half a million, is 14 feet high, and it is furnished with every modern equipment, including electric lights, a bear rug, even a pipe organ which can be played. Everything is, of course, in miniature proportions. The house is being exhibited all over the world. Among other Algonians who pursue collecting hobbies are Mrs. M. G. Norton, who collects dolls, in full dress, from every country; and Carmen Roskopf, local music instructor, who is an ambitious on .- ------- , tj j \^c* i * id^c, by bicycle, or on a "Toonerville" trolley type of electric cars pow pool and a miniature golf course. The trees and shrubbery here, also the flowers are beautiful. The ocean, which can be seen from nearly every point, is of the deepest blue I've ever run across. I've taken some color movies of it that should be excellent. To Sail Home Today. The "Queen of Bermuda" sails this afternoon and returns next Wednesday. I sail the next day for New York, on the "Queen." The passage to Bermuda on the Monarch was somewhat rough. These boats are sister ships, and they are "elegant".

The charivariers got what they were S. S. Class Has a Party— The Methodist Centenary S. S class had 6:30 dinner Tuesday evening at the church, with Mr and Mrs. W. A. Dutton as chairman. After dinner, a program wa given. The Rev. F. Earl Burges gave a review of the book, "H Knew Lincoln." Mrs. Sylvia Gunn Carmen Roskopf, and Glenn Ran ey played instrumental numbers and Donald Johnson, Merle Pratt Richard Norton, and Richara Keen sang, acompanied by Miss Roskopf at the piano. Carlene Jane and Ruth Ann Clement gave in strumetal selections. There were some 70 persons in attendance. Sixty Call on the Moores— Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Moore, as forecast in lost week's paper, observed their 53rd wedding anniversary. Saturday, and "open" house was in the afternoon and evening. Some 60 friends called. The Moores have 12 children, but only one daughter, Mrs. D. C. Gardner, of Union township. The sons are Marc, Jim and Earl, Algona; J. C., Montpelier, Ida.; Donald, Bode; Wood, Salem, Ore.; Dr. R.

A shilling one end of the group to the other. like bicycling, but it does lame one up by bringing into play muscles that otherwise get little use. In Hamilton there are traffic cops, or "Bobbies," who have little to do, it seems. Traffic flows opposite to what we are accustomed to, everyone using the "wrong" or left side of the street. I am especially amused to see bicyclers give hand signals on stopping or turning, just as is done in automobiles in the States. Half Population Colored. About half of Bermuda's population is Negro. Though the neg- roes are more "accepted" here than at home, there are some restrictive laws. But they are interesting and well educated, and I get a lot of local color out of talking to them. The hotel is in the middle of the islands. I've made trips to both ends, one by ferry, but by train or carriage back. There are oth- trips I must take, particularly in this weather. There have 'been five perfect days. Besides bicycling, I've ridden in carriages, played tennis, even croquet, and have, of coimse had the use of the hotel's swimming compares to a short quarter — 24 cents. Pence is two cents in our money, and our penny compares to the English half-penny or ha 1 penny, as the natives pronounce it. The pound is quoted currently at $5. It is written 5-2-G, meaning five pounds, two shillings, six pence, or what would be $25.60 in American money. I have done some buying — a Kashmir sport coat and sweater and a pair of white doeskin trousers. Kashmir is a soft Indian wool — so soft, as Carveth Wells says, as to be immoral!
