Friday afternoon Passengers Play Jacks, In spect Ship, Watch Aquatic Life if you're trying to climb up hill. Almost an Inebriated feeling. We were on the bridge the other day. We travel over w»tef about 2 and a half miles deep. Besides the usual compasses, automatic compass, etc., they have a do-bob that tells whether there Is a fire In any part of the ship. They have little tubes that lead to every compartment and a lltle mirror In front »o they can see any trace of smoke. They have a pool rigged up on the forward deck, and I have had my first taste of salt water. It's awfully salty stuff.

If the branch to be severed Is large and heavy, it should first be cut a foot or two out from the trunk or branch from which it Is to be severed, then cut off the stump at the proper place, and when It is cut nearly through, support the stump until it U entirely severed, thus saving the trunk from being peeled when the branch or stub Is about cut through. It Is a good plan to cut the under side of the branch a little ways out from the trunk, and the branch or stub will fall off and not injure the bark on the under (ride of tfcef branch. Then continue with the saw until the branch is entirely severed and you have a smooth, clean surface. Trimming should be done when the cambium, layer Is forming and It will run out over the wound and form new bark over the place where the branch was severed.

Hutcnto«n> I know of no other city the size of Algona that has as many beautiful trees as the city of Algona, especially the street trees, which are mostly sugar maple and which the writer considers the queen of all trees. These Intensely hot days, I believe everyone who paases under the dense foliage of the spreading branches of these magnificent trees enjoys and welcomes the refreshing shade which they afford. The reason I am writing this little squib is. that as I pass along I have noticed many of our trees are trimmed by Inexperienced persons.

Editor's Note: Chuck Cretzmeyer, son of Dr. and Mrs. C. H. Cretzmeyer of Algona, is touring Europe this summer in company with three other young men. including a fellow student of Harvard, one from Dartmouth and a third from Cornell. Chuck crossed on the "City of Hamburg" of the Baltimore Mail Line, and in the following letter to his family describes his crossing on the Atlantic. His description of the flying fish and other aquatic life is particularly graphic. The letter was mailed back to the United States on the second trip of the Queen Mary. Saturday. Dear all: When you read tfaui it will hove covered a lot of water, you'd never know bow much ocean there is. We travel some 3100 mile*. Too, this was carried on the second trip of the Queen Mary. Weil, a little about the trip. We left Baltimore Thursday and then down Chesapeake Bay to Norfolk ihat night. The- bay was just like a lake. We bummed a ride into Norfolk to get a shirt, as you probably have found I'm travelling plenty light. The first thing you notice about the South is the way the niggers are every place, even on the busiest streets. Then coming back, (the place Is about the nize of De» Moines) we came on a street car; there was a segregation warning on the front, fining people for sitting together, blacks and whites that is. There are 83 passengers on board and about twenty are our age. We've been raising the very deuce. I've played everything from packs, hop-scotch, to hide and seek. Night before last we were playing blind- man's buff in the lounge and you've never seen such a mess an that place was about 2:30. You see, we looe forty-five minutes every day i>o at midnight it automatically becomes twelve forty-five. The trip has been unusually calm, the best in about a year and a half, no the doctor says. I just finished my shots yesterday, it maUe» my arm plenty sore. Atlantic Uke GUM I really expected the Atlantic to be a wild son of a gun, but al! the way it has been ju«t about like (.'tear Lake with a few white caps. Of course, there are swells but it has been almost like glass. The first day out I didn't feel right up to snuff, but I feel swell and have not been sea sick a bit. I guess I can go anyway. Until you see the real deep ocean you've never seen a blue like it. It is as blue na if you had poured a whole bottle of blueing into a pail of water, and (her) with the loam from the ship it i.-i really a marvelous sight. The sea seerna to be alrnott like a sheet of indigo blue glass Ht times and the foam, a wash, just seeras to run over the top of it like a stream turned on pavement or something. It doesn't seem to sink or merge, but to slide over the surface "Where the flying FUhe* Play" The first three days we were running through flying fish all of the time. They're funny little things about a foot long and their wings ure transparent like glass. They start out and glide about 200 feet right along the surface and then hit a swell and they vibrate their tail in the water and that gives them momentum for another two hundred feet. I've seen them take about four or live of those tfipg. We aJ.,o saw some poi'poues. They are funny little things about three feet long and black with a "V" tail and they jump into the air like a tarpon. Day before yesterday we passed some whaltu. They were about three hundred feet from the ship and about fifteen or twenty feet long. And jeliy nsb. but we're getting away from, all those thing* now. We will be in Havre late tonight or early tomorrow morning. It really is a pretty monotonous lite, nothing to do but tinker. Probably the wont sensation though i* trying to dance on a curved surface with the afalp rolling.
