Hie American Legion could employ a new, larger hall, especially when entertaining the public. Evidenced at the recent feather party when at limes one could not push himself either in nor out. More people, more money. Simple, isn't It? * * * Paul Lamnth has a pet coon. It comes up town with him the same as a family dog. Stopping at the service station, its presence made stalwart Gene Wray seek a -chair and safety much as a lady would on sighting a mouse. So far it has been harmless, though attractive. * * * Down In Irvington the sage of that vicinity, Barney Frankl, is wearing a much-discussed mus- tachlo, that is capable of putting many a Stalinite to shame. In Barney's own words it serves its purpose by "keeping the ladies away." * * * In a sporting manner Bud Zender wore one of a smaller type, cultivated, groomed and neat. It blended in perfectly with Bud's immaculate dress, but came off when the time set by a wager was ended. Since Barney's new wrinkle of preserving his came to light, could it be the reason for Bud not wanting his longer? * • • Then there Is Secretary Relley ot the Chamber of Commerce who looks a dandy with his bristled adornment. Wonder what he would look like without it, and if the foregoing reason has anything to do with its continuance. • • • Species of ducks are numerous. An alert postal clerk must know a new kind. A letter or card with an outline of a duck for the name and sent to Algona will be delivered to Ernest Thiel. * • • Drnsilla CanghUn was an acquaintance of long standing. She's married now to Don Mertz. Commenting anent the couple a last line n the Advance is reprinted—"Mrs. Mtertz is a cattle buyer." ' Why, Betty, how could you? * • • In Boston selling baked beans on Sunday is against the law. On the other hand beer flows freely as on week days, legally. Whisky with an Iowa seal and purchased within the law cannot be taken Into Mln nesota even on fishing trips. • • « The Dr. Cretzmeyers have erected a 12-room palatial blrdhouse at their home. The house was purchased In Mankato, built by a boys organization under the supervision of a game warden and according to latest government specifications. The too common and lowly sparrow Is as welcome a guest of the Cretz- meyers as the most dignified of birds. There is no locking of the door for winter here. • * * In journeying to your Thanksgiving dinner did you wave your hand in a thankful greeting to the state patrolman? Did you offer thanks for the highway maintenance crews who worked all day removing the treacherous first snowfall of the year in order to make your trip safer? Don't forget these men who postpone their own pleasure for yours. It's not too late to extend small appreciative courtes- es. • • • Chaa. Stell couldn't find an enter coat to fit, in store stock. He is about the littlest man in town. A made to measure order went into the factory and back came an inquiry asking, "What model of man s this who wears clothes of these dimensions?" • * • Folks affording new can are financially able to have two working headlights. Quite a number are driving around with but one. When accosted by law and protected by the statement, "Tnt on my way just now to the garage," it seems rid- iculous that two, three or four weeks is necessary to get to a garage in this country. • • • With no retaliation, no after dinner speeches, no understanding of this popularity we dine again, tonight, the guest of Mr. and Mrs. James Watts at their country home. These out-to-dinner invitations, here and there twice a week are unprecedented. Such eligibtes as Leo Immerfall, Earl Vincent, Ed Butler, Cussie Cullen, et al, will share the fried chicken. Sitting alongside Deputy Cullen with a six shooter looking up at you makes one wonder whether or not to accept more than a third helping. Read The Want Ads—It Pays.
