Everything was selling well. Even In the big crowd, Dick found us, gave us a friendly slap on the bacK ,and said, "Hello, Charlie." Ross Browning, the man th.it moved to the place, came from a few miles west of Elmore, and so has changed states. Ross had often told us that he would like to get back to a good Iowa farm, and now he has done It. The farm where he lived was sold just a week before March 1, and he received short notice to move. The prospect for finding another place at that late date looked pretty tough, but Ross was fortunate enough to find one and at the same time realize his wish to return to the good old Hawkeye state. • * + * Herman Gabel, a half mile east of the Grant consolidated schoolhouse, was doing some repair work on his manure spreader when we self after a period of od west * * * * poor health. , f °™°rly lmore, now lives in , ves n own, where ho bought a fine ''"T- Ho «Hd he had beei both! ei ed with heart trouble, but lately had been feeling much better.
