Vesper Takes Paper For Forty-Two Years. Our old friend, Prank Vesper, writ ing from Glendale, California, says that he lias been a subscriber to this paper for the past forty-two years and continues: "It is just twenty-five years since the Vesper family began preparations to move to California. We left lots of good friends there, but in these years many of them have gone on to the better land and perhaps an equal number found that California was even more attractive than the uncertainties of that other place or places. So we go to the Iowa picnic and for one day can imagine we tire back in Algona among many of our old friends. But keep up your fight, for if any of them come to California, even for a few days, they get the microbe and then they are never content until they are here to stay.
