"THE STRANGEST ROMANCE IN HISTORY" Albert Hutchias husband of Nils Cram Cook, made the above statement about his courtship, or rather Nila's courtship, and their wedding. But alas, he was wrong, for the romance proved to be pretty ordinary, and Nlla Is now seeking a divorce. "My angel, my starlight, my citrus blossom," said Nila. to her hubbie. aft-?r the ceremony. "He is seeking to tie up my income," she said Inst week in court while seeking the divorce. It look. 1 ; as though the strangest romance in history, the 1934 Love Song of India, had bank?d its fires and was destined to never more see the light of day or the Ml very team of moonlight. ODD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode "I«t the people know the truth and the cvnntrj •lfc w —^Abraham Lincoln. odds and ends THE COCKY NIPPONESE Japan, always somewhat brash in its foreign relations, now tells the whole world that she Intends to have the last word over China, and approve or disapprove ttw Chinese treaties and trade compacts. A Monroe Doctrine of the Pacific, some call it. The mandate says In effect that Japan intends to have the final word In Chinese affairs, whether the Chinese or anybody else likes it or not. Although there Is not an exact parallel, the United States did, a* one time, take somewhat the same attitude with regard to central and south American countries. But there was a difference. The U. S. acted in response to internal troubles in the borders of Ite southern neighbors. Jaoan does not even have that excuse at the present moment, and its ultimatum comes out of a clear nky-nnd as a result of its Manchukuo experience. Perhaps If the Pacific fleet had remained in the Pacific, the Japanese note might have been tamed down r» bit. It was significant that about the same time that the fleet was coming out on the Atlantic side of the canal, the Japanese message was made public. fc? WHY EIGHTY MILLION There Is one mighty interesting factor about our state government that none of the candidates for public office on either side of the fence have so far done much talking about. Each side has ideas as to ways and means of raising and spending the 80 .some million dollars used up annually by the state of Iowa but to date we have heard nobody advance any startling ideas as to how to cut this 80 million down. The substantial Iowa citizen would willingly listen to any sincere proposal for reducing the state taxes, but he has sort of lost hope that this will ever come to pass White we are arguing the sales tajc, the net Income versus the gross income tax, and the corporation tax, why does net somebody go over in a co.-ner and figure out ways and means to cut that 80 million to, say 40 million. Maybe hell get his statue put on somebody's court house tawn some time, if he does a good job. OTHER EDITORS Patterson's Change Mason City Gazette: George W. Patterson of Burt used to go out of his way to identify himself with the radical forces of the legislature. His one original idea was a state income tax. which might reduce the property tax burden as much as one-fifteenth or one-twentieth But when other legislation was up, he seemingly sought out and took the position which would be regarded as most extreme. In the special session Just ended. Senator Patterson Obviously had been tomed. He voted as a republican at every test. In fact, the lost conspicuous occasion on •which he broke over the traces of part; regularity -was a year and a half ago In the selection of Byron Allen as senate secretary. Mr. Allen, whose uncanny ability to move from one plum tree to another has been commented on la this space, had democratic sponsorship on this occasion. He's still at the democratic trough. At present Mr. Patterson is seeking the republican nomination for lieutenant governor. Disinterested appraisal of the race compels one to concede that at this juncture, he is "out in front." If the primary being held at this time, It isn't to be doubted that he would win. Interestingly enough, Senator Patterson has the backing of what in the past he has been pleased to call the "old guard," the "standpatters." Likewise, there is slight Indication of an alliance between his campaign and that of Governor Turner. They have been cronies in previous years. A rumor persists that the Kossuth county man wanted to make the race for governor himself but was barred by Turner's candidacy. Our purpose in calling attention to all of this Is merely to inquire: Was Senator Patterson being himself back in the days when he wore the garb of the radical or is he bring his true self now. surrounded by those he condemned in other days? In which role are the whiskers false? Last week while soliciting a little extra advertising for this week's Issue of the paper, we approached Bob Jnmes. and gave him such a story that he began to -•tfied crocodile tears, concluded by saying that he figured we were going to lose money on the proposition, and offered to pay us the extra difference. Which made us think perhaps we had been overdoing the point. Thanks, though, Bob. • • • Tony Kirsch and Matt Lamuth went to Crystal Lake, fishing, with Russell Hodges also in the party last Thursday ... we are informed that Tony, in an effort to lift the anchor, allowed himself to be pulled overboard, and that Buss had to fish him out . . .

Beibsamen of Tltonka, April 23, removed one of the most beloved pioneer ladles of Kossuth county and through some inadvertence the Upper Des Moines has heretofore failed to publish a fitting obituary. We find that we can do no better than publish the fine tribute paid Mrs. Reibsamen by Brother Wolfe of the Topic, which we reprint', herewith. We und-erstand that some of the boys are deserting Greta and Marlene for Anna Sten, the charming Russian screen and stage star.

Come iji . . . NOW ON DISPLAY Titonkft Topic: Margaret Catherine Cunningham was born August 7, 1861, at Washington, Monroe county, Ohio, being the eldest daughter of Joseph A. Cunningham. She passed away at her home near Tltonka, Monday, April 23, 1934, at ten o'clock past noon, age 72 years, 8 months and 16 days, her death coming suddenly from a heart attack.

They homesteaded two miles west of Titonka, being one of the five pioneer families of Buffalo township. Here she grew to womanhood. On Sept. 2B. 1879, she was married to Charles Reibsamen and they established their residence on his father's farm Uter known as the Whitcomb-Welter farm. To this union nine children were born: Elsie of Williston, K.

In 1884 they moved to th-elr own farm one mile east, where they resided for the past fifty years. On September 22, 1929, they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with all of their children and their entire families present. They, with 150 of their friends, made the day one long to be remembered. On many occasions during the past five years all of the children have been at home, and on Easter Sunday, April 1, 1934, the last family reunion was held when all of the family of eight children were present and most of the grandchildren and sons-in-law. All of the children, the one daughter-in-law, five of six sons-in-law and six of the eleven grandchildren attended the funeral.

Mrs. Reibsanven had lived in this community for more than fifty years, and \vas known intimately to most of the men, women and children in the community. There are many who remember the happy tinves they have had in her home, the kindness and understanding she has always shown to them, the thoughtfulness and help she has shown to that* who were in trouble or grief. It is these countless small kindnesses she has shown unfailingly through the years that, have made her life '.he fine example it is for her children, grandchildren and friends to follow. Her name will always bring up kindly thoughts to those who knew her. She is mourned not only by her relatives, but by all who called her fmnd.
