We're mostly in bed by midnight-m Icnst the parents are. and it's quiet around here until after the 7 ;i m. \vhislie blows But lately things have elianged. We have bags under our eyes, and a iaek- of-slcep hangover. We are liloriilly going to the dogs! IT IS orn F \MII.V THAT is driving us this way.

We thought it was hcetic enough al our hou-e then, but looking back on it, those days seem peaceful and quiet b\ comparison The first two or three weeks of their lives were spent i.i a i-anlho.inl j carton in our kitchen All the little dogs did then was eat and sleep j ond only occasionally would one of them crawl out of the box.

But motherhood can take Mime-- j tiling out of a girl, and when the pups were about three works old. an j incident occurred that scared us quite bacll>. Gidgit began to droop and she couldn't get up on her hind quarters. \VE THOUGHT WE'D COVSL'I.T her friend. Doc Dorweiler. hut it was Sunday and he was out of town. \Ve talked the situation over with Grandpa Harold Hobson and he said when he lived on a farm ami an animal acted like that, she had milk fever. Sure enough, when Father took Gidgit up to Pr. Cotten. that was what she had. Or at least a canine variety of it. caused by the pups' draining of her calcium supply. TWO SHOTS OF SOMETHING OH OTHER and some powder to jn.'c with her food soon had Gidgit on her feet again. Meanwhile, we Experimented with getting the pups to eat from a dish before we thought they were really ready for it. Except for a slight tendency Jo take a bath in their breakfast, they did very well' By this time ("hey had been moved to a pen on the back porch and it was a couple jf days before the pups discovered they could climb out of it. Those were the days of comparable peace and quiet around here. Among the -5" Explorer Scouts from the Prairip Gold Area, shown in the above picture on the steps of the nation's capital in Washington, DC. are Scouts from Algona. Lone Rock. Swea City and West Bend, according to a news story that accompanied this picture. However, the mmes of (he Scouts were not given, so perhaps folks familiar with thorn can spot them by careful scrutiny. The trip was taken in 50 cars, with a leader in each car. There were 1!> counties represented in the group. THE PUPS. LIKE HUMAN SIBLINGS. love each other, but that ' over 7.000 gallons was approved. The drainage for the town will be improved as a new intake will be installed near the Hormel plant and the drain extended to the corner by John Madsen's home. Wafer Rates At Ringsfed Have Been Changed Ringsted — The town council held a study of water rates in neighboring towns and the new doesn't stop them from fighting. They growfin' high "soprano "at eadi i rates Panted b y the clerk's re- other, act like they are going To tear each other's ears off and then ' commendatlon for those who use settle down to sleep, lovingly cuddled in one big seven-part lump. Gid- git, ever the proud Mama, knows that her children must one day be independent, so she is weaning them. This process is no doubt brought about by the fact that the pups have developed mouths full of needle sharp teeth, but we prefer the explanation that it is maternal wisdom that makes Gidge shake the little ones off after she has checked iliem and counted them with her nose to see if all are present. * » * THIS TENDENCY ON THE PART of the pups to grab a ride on the milk wagon as their mother goes by is what gets them distributed all over the neighborhood, and what keep^aur,early morning hours so lively. Gidgit sleeps in the living room as usual; the pups sleep on the back porch. Gidgit can get out the back door, but she can't get back in the front. She goes to the back porch to check on the pups, (hey grab hold and are dragged outside with their mother. Gidgit barks and the pups yipe until a human comes to the rescue. z a * EARLY SI NOW MORNING I \\ \s awakened by bedlam When I investigated. I found three of the pups had fallen dow'n the steps ,mo the basement and the rest were distributed along the wav Fu'-dav morning the commotion stared at -1 a.m. Gidgii\:is om.side barking lather let her buck in, but was ton sleepy to do any further invest iirit- mg. About 5 a m. C.irlge set up a terrific din. 1 yelled at her to sh'il up and went back to sleep. Gi Ige went out the haik door, and ,hc .text I knew she. was banging on the front door to be let in This time I got up. Trying to get up the front steps were six little puppies and the other was hiding in the hushes. By the time 1 got outside all ,f diem ucre scurrying into the bushes and 1 spent a good, brec/y five minutes i putting them baek. They got out once more after that "and by seven! o clock when we were supposed to get up, both of us wt peacefully. month old Mrs Gordon Becky Howe, 10 daughter of Mr and Howe, is confined to a Sioux City hospital with a congenital hip and may be placed in a cast before coming home.
