Recently Vivian and the children and her parents, Mr and Mrs Leroy Crapser were at Estherville spending the day ^with Mr and Mrs Russell Crapser. The Russell Crapser's son Duane came in, very indignant and said, "I'm not going to play with Jackie any more. He talks like a confederate!" • • * Two card* from the A. L. Longs — one to Hazel Lusby showing "Old Ironsides." 1 remembered my history well enough to know it took a major part in the war of 1812 and won a glorious battle. The next card was to me and was post marked Davenport, so they are home from a wonderful trip to the east coast. • * • The name Ina N. Elklns doei not ring a bell so far as I am concerned. Inquiry has been made Conceffting her. Any information 1 you can give me will be appreciated. Mt Mid Mr* Leon Laird and Ma* have recently returned from a Vacation in Chicago. It comes as good news to me that interesting public places provide wheel chairs for those who need them. Max has a plaster cast on his leg. Fortunately it was found that wheel chairs were provided for the handicapped and Max was able to get the utmost pleasure out of the tfip. 1 hope to get into the city some time—oh not in the immediate future, but it's a — what shall I call it? Dream? And all this news is gratifying. * * * J A, tadder group of children cannot be found than the Joe Liehter family, and this includes Mom and Pop. Chang the second, year old black and white "peke", was hit by a car and killed not long ago. Poor little fellow — Didn't have a chance against a big car bearing down at quite a speed. So much heart ache a little living creature bereft of life by a big, inanimate thing. I feel quite bitter about such accidents as I lost a pet Angora cat the same way. I felt like shooting the driver of the car. I was Dr. Albert W.

As for me. t said 1 had shed all the tears over a pet I was ever going to— and that vow made over 30 year* ago still holds firmly. No mot-o cats—and since I've never cared for dogs—I'm safe on that score. 1 say I don't care for dogs. That doesn't mean I am not sympathetic and 1 certainly would never harm one. Mary was pacified by the suggestion of a dog "heaven" and I suggested that "Beautiful Joe" and "Beautiful Joe's Paradise" be read to her. * • * If you had 82 perch, what would you do with them? Yeah, eat 'em — that was my first thought too, but if you don't have anyone to help clean them, then what -would you do? Probably what this person did—bury them. Um-m-m- are you drooling? * * t We have all heard the tales of people turning gray over night. but have you heard of anyone turning BLACK haired in a feu' seconds? And yellow birds turning black in the same time? Well, 1 have and it's a true story. Mrs Anna Madson awakened the other morning and it was chilly and damp. She arose, started the fire in her oil burner, went back to the bed but decided the flame didn't look just right. Back ,to the living room, and as she bent over the stoVe to investigate, BOOM—down came the stove pipes with a shower of soot! Do I need to say more? The "black birds" are her twenty canaries. » » • Mrs John GUch recently at tended funeral services at Austin, Minn., for her uncle, George Hatten, a former resident at Bancroft. Services'" were held in the new Queen of Angels Catholic church and Mrs Gisch was much impressed with the unusual structure. It is made of Wisconsin lime stone which forms the walls, interior as well as exterior. The only trim is of black wrought iron. All very artistic and beautiful. * * * The Rev and Mrs John Kain have extra cause for rejoicing. A son, John Andrew, was born to them June 12. The first son joining a family of daughters, Beverly, Mary, Lois and Joan. * * * It WAS Hale Shirley, son of Mr and Mrs William Shirley of whom I wrote a week or so ago. His sister Pearl married Harry Winslow. Harry is deceased, as is Mr Shirley. . Along with news about the Shirleys and Winslows, I had a letter from my cousin Melvin Henderson of Pomona, Calif. In it he mentioned that his mother- in-law, Edna Winslow Stebbins had flown from Pomona to Dayton, Ohio to visit her sister Margaret. He says Edna was to leave there at 8:30 a.m. and reach Dayton at 3:30 p.m. Seems incredibly fast, but he should know. They plan to drive to Algona reaching here about July 4. Margaret and Edna are both well known here and have many friends who will be delighted to see them. Pearl lives at Mill Valley, Calif., and Mrs Shirley makes her home with her. * • • Quite a number of fishermen have reported their luck not too good. Not so the case of Orvnl Joseph. He had such good luck at Fox Lake, Minn., lie went back the following weekend and took with him his brother-in-law, Bert Smith, of Fort Dodge. Hope ho did a repeat performance when he had an audience. * * * The other day I phoned Mrs Glenn Jones for news. The little son said, "She's hatching chickens," so I told him to have her call me, I had supposed she was out caring for new little chicks but it turned out she was DRESSING one. The chicken gave Mrs Jones quite a jolt for, the bird which crowed and wns .assumed to be a rooster, turned out to be a HEN and had partly formed eggs to prove her sex. Remember that old saw "Crowing hens come to bad ends." How true! * * • I have so lew relatives I was hoping Cliff Cady of Fort Dodge and I might be cousins. But also —there is no family connection whatsoever. He states his father !••« • w « w* •• *•»•»»»• LEDYARD By Mrs b. §.
