Tidbits From Evelyn Mt and Mn Albert Bleb* at. IWUng Visited by Mr Slobe's moth- r, Mrs James Slobe of Calif. She makes San her . horn* there with a daughter who ftt present is touring Europe witn her husband. When I talked with Mrs Slobe, the latest word she had received from them was that they were in Amsterdam, Holland. What an interesting trip that would be. 1 wonder it "Holland is cool. If so, I'd like to be there today, July 12. * * ' « M« Edgar Campbell has be*n most cooperative and has helped me greatly with news bits so it was with regret 1 learned from her that the family is moving to Seattle, Wash. Mr Campbell has Employment awaiting him in Seattle. Mrs Campbell's sister, Doris, R. N., lives there and has recently purchased a rfew home and has offered it to the Campbells till they have the opportunity of finding a place. Edgar will leave in a short time but Mrs Campbell and children will not join him till September 1. They will be with Mrs Campbell's parents, Mr and Mrs Homer Young at Garner. * • * Maurice McMahon delivered a very lovely bouquet from his mother, Mrs S. E. McMahon the other day. Thank you, Mrs Me- Mahon. The flowers were lovely and arranged most artistically. Maurice had read my item on tars and theif disturbing noise when 1 wanted to mi. He re* marked about* the things wftieh annoy one. Me lives in Mihnea* toolis and cars, trucks, sirens and PLANTATION BALLROOM 'WHITTEMORE.

But let him come om here, the country noises cut down his sleep while city noises lull him to slumber. . * * I love barn-yatd noises in the early morning, if not too close. The lowing 01 the cows, the crow of roosters, subdued of course. Remember the old gag. A rooster says "cock-a-doodle-do." The old maid says "Any dude'll do." Corny but -quite a laugh getter in it's day. * * * Supi. utd Mf» O. B. Laing purchased the house they lived in some time ago,, from D. D. Mon* lux. He bought it of Mrs Fred Wehler, 1 believe and the Wehler's bought it of William K. Ferguson Wno got it from the.Mink- ler estate — if my memory serves me correctly. 1 don't know who built the little sleepingoorch over the living room bay '\phdow, the Laings probably whqn Ed and David were youngsters and used it. The house is being painted and the sleeping porch removed. Mrs Laing said it is to be enlarged and placed on the south lawn as a summer living rdojn. What a fine idea. Wish I had one in my yard. The Bill Daus have a nice one in their yard and what a comfort such little "rooms" are — cool breezes and no mosquitoes, for even with the spraying a few of the pests must have nine lives. * * * > I kinda hale io see thai house on East Nebraska street being torn down to make way for parking cars. A nice lot like that given over to commercial uses. The Ed Pattersons lived inxthat house years ago. Remember the daughters Florence and Helen? Florence was a very good friend of mine. She and Zada Brunsqn and myself made a youthful trio of playmates many years ago. 1 recall being there one day, all dressed up in my Sunday best because a Phelps boy, grandson of Mrs Carrie Bourne was going to take pictures of me, Florence, Helen, and Zaida and Helen Dingley and our dolls. T still have the picture and cherish it greatly. It was there too 1 first he'ard the song "Please Go Way and Let Me^Sleep", as rendered by Earl Wallick who worked in the furniture store for Mr Patterson. Poor fellow — nbt many years after that he was drowned one Sunday morning in the Des Moines river north of town. Harry Leckey, his companion, was more fortunate and swam to shore. • • • One seldom hears of making soap anymore. It used to be a common household duty. My Esther has some she uses and which she made a few years ago while living in Minnesota. Mrs Melvin Olson and Mrs Loyal Young made some at Mrs Harry Seeley's in Whittemore not long ago. I told her the story of the very costly soap made at my grandfather Tom Henderson's years ago when mother was a two months old infant. The "hired girl" was saving wood ashes -to make soap, put them in a wooden container in a back addition to the kitchen. There were live embers which caught fire in the night and the whole house was ablaze and completely burned down in a very short time. Grandma was frantic because the baby couldn't be found and she feared the worst. Mother and the maid had taken refuge at the Weavers close by, parents of Mart who lived in the Wernert home on North Jones street. The Henderson house stood on the site of the house where the Paul Ostwinkles live. Due to this fire I have a very lovely walnut chest- bureau — which grandma' sister, Sarah Call (Mrs Asa Call) contributed toward furnishing a new home. • t • Dick Ristau, son of Mr and Mrs Arthur Ristau accompanied his aunt, Eleanor Rahnf, to 'her home at Richland, Wash, following her recent visit here. He has graduated and hopes to get employment with G. E. on the west coast. ^ t ^ "Jack" Clatftnee Stebbin*, oi Good Thunder, Minn., was here last week and visited the Claude Samsons and other friends. He got here jUst in time to see his sistet-in-law, Mh Edna Stebbins who wss here front Pomona, Calif. Her husband was Ross Stebbins, prominent barber here years ago. Ross lives at Pomona but has been retired a number ot years. Edna had flown to Dayton, Ohio to visit her sister Mar? garet whose *husband died a few months ago. * • * H«wi msly gels around, ac- .coraing to Mrs Walter Blockhus of Upland, Calif., who has made an extensive ,visit with Mr and Mrs Art Wiese. She is a former resident of this vicinity arid among her friends at Upland is a man who formerly lived at IrV- ington. Mrs Blockhus reads weekly papers from here from page to page, ads and all, then passes them on to this former Irvington- ian who passes them on to his friends who are interested. By the time the papers have been putused from end to end, they are, pretty well tittered. I.told Mrs Wiese I have an in- tefgsl in Uplands. My cousin MJBhrln Hendersdttv is secretary- m&hager of a citrus packing h<Suse there and commutes to his home in Pomonat ' , * • » Things have been happening in the Chris Bowen family in Des Moines. Chris is a grandson of Mrs Anna Ma&ori. A daughter whdm they named Karen Kay waV born to them last week and the following day Chris had nose surgery* :He had it broken several years ago while playing football. It began to give him some trouble so an operation was advised. • ' • • I'll close with a siory told me by the late Earl Crane a number of years ago. The weather had been much like it is today. The bashful swain was calling on his ."heart's delight." She sat at one end of the davenport, he at the other. He couldn't think of anything to say and finally in desperation asked, "Have you sweat much this summer?"
