She had not been sick nor i;v, arc 1 of any ailnvnls. Mrs Jer- ROIISOTI remained a couple of weeks with .her father. Mrs John Rcilly was winner o' the bride doll given by ihe St. Ann auxiliary recently. I war- told she has a four month old daughter, so it will be a while before she will enjoy the doll. The first doll I remember was a black haired one with Pauline in raised letters across the front of her neck. In due time she gave way to blonde curly haired Helen who shut her eyes and completely won my heart. By the time I was about seven, Dorothy Opal came to live with me. Now there was a doll!

I have told this story before several times in fact bcc'uise I think it is so cute. It happened wiicn I was about leu. I knew there wasn't a Santa Clans in the juvenile accepted tljeory, but my parents didn't know I knew am I was willing to go with them in the deception.

Then I'll get the fires going better and you can see them er than cheaf the little follow out of a celebration, his birthday was observed at the McMahons a couple of weeks ago. Combing Christmas and a birthday is just too much for a little guy and he on- joyed it more by not piling things up loo much. And of course it was fun for the small brothers Mike and Tom. * » » ('. 15.

Orvillc Bakkcn has written his parents, Mr and Mrs Oliver Bakken, that he wants a really white Christmas when he and his farndy arrive Dec. 21 from Houston, Tex. Well, I don't share his views nor does the majority of the populace. If his wish must be granted, I hope he is here to clear the walks of the white stuffs. Maybe he won't be so anxious for it. " * • < Mrs R. A. Johnston mid her dau- fliter Mrs Howard Forsberg went to Clear Lake Dec. 14 to celebrate Ihe birthdays of Mrs Fursberg and htr twin sister, Mrs Richard Hughes.. Mrs Forsberg is Ksther and Mrs Hughes was named Hester but soon changed to Margaret. Margaret, it seems, a.s a tot was not so easy to control and every lime Hester was called. Esther cried, apparently confusing the mmies. So Margaret it became. cd. About 3,000 trees were blovm down and they landed on the streets, cars, houses and garages. What an expense and cleanup job. The Hartford Insurance company has paid out over a million dollars already. We were fortunate, only lost some shingles. Our lawn is as green as summer and today I'm going to pick the rest of our chrysanthemums. Our big shopping center, Lloyds, looks like fairyland with GO foot trees all aglitter and long festoons hanging over the skating rink. I am told there are over 50.000 lights in the display, and it looks it." Abner Long writes, "Blanche sat up in a chair twice — 15 minutes each today. (Dec. 11) Two weeks from today is Christinas and I bet the doctor will say the best place for her is here — not to get excited over Christmas. I bet the best place for Blanche and me is to eat goose here at the hospital." I think he has it figured out correctly. But here's a speedy recovery, Blanche. Take care of yourself. Myrta West writes from Perry, "I have a week at Christmas to ipend with my family (Virginia and husband and son) at Albia." Her late husband. Robert West, will be well-remembered here. He was an engineer for some time and worked with Archie Michel if 1 remember correctly. Also a note from Lillian Matheson, Downing Rest Home, Rush City, Minn.

I got into bed between mother and Dad and they asked me what Santa had brought. I mentioned the gifts and when finished mother said. "Didn't you get a rocker'.'" "No." I replied. Turning to Dad she s:iid, "Why Marve, didn't you bring it over from grandma's'.'" 1 remember how I smiled to myself at this "give away" on the Santa aspect, and for years I didn't say anything. Dear, sweet little mother, who ua.. always so open and aboa- board, she couldn't dissemble on cv.'ii S;:nta. She said one time- when I had told the story she (hi,tight I was making fun of her.
