The daughter Francie, 12, celebrated her anniversary July 3. Then on July 21 Jeffrey was two and Karen was three July 26. • * » Mrg Emma Dehnefl it numbered among the few fortunate persons who are great-great grandmothers. The lineage is Mrs Dehnert, Mrs R. A. Johnston, Mrs Richard Hughes, Mrs Duane McKim and Scott David McKim, born recently in his parents at Clear Lake. Two more land marks are being disposed of—houses built about the same time and doomed at the same time. One is the James W. Sampson house on south Minnesota street, the other is. the old Mike Dalton place, also on south . Minnesota street but near the Kossuth county fair grounds. The Sampson house was built n 1880 and children of the Jones Sampsons were Claude, Leonard, Clinton and Esther (Mrs Karl Willason) The property has changed hands but twice—Leighton Misbach buying it from the. Sampson estate and he in turn •selling it to Charles Schultz, city engineer. '; The Mike Dalton house Was built in 1881 and to erect the place, Mr Dalton had to cut away hazelnut brush to clear a site. The Daltons came here from Wisconsin. Others in the family were Guy Dalton and Al, older than Clare (Mrs L. W. Keith) who was born in the house soon after it was built. This property has changed hands but twice too—Mike Miller having purchased it and John McGuire having purchased it from the estate. This house has not been wrecked but has been moved to a site east of what was known years ago as the Kennedy place just east of the Kossuth county fairgrounds. The corner where Mr McGuire plans to build a home for himself has been filled in, the brush and trees cleared out—alas—the last remnants of woods with which I was so familiar back in my youth. How times change! 1 Mrs Ethel Potter gave a break- iasj Wednesday morning honoring The birthday of-Mrs Clare Keith. Other guests were Mrs Ethel Morgan and Mrs Fred Will. Mrs Keith remarked, "Do you remember it was 40 years ago you (Mrs Potter and Mrs Will) worked for me?" It was probably on the farm where she and Mr Keith lived many years before retiring and coming to town. "Forty years ago, and we are still friends" Clare added. * * • Mrs Ethel Gilles recently laundered an 80 year old dress—a tiny frock, hand made and trimmed with fancy hand work of her mother—made for the'little girl Sthel Davidson those many years ago. I too cherish one made for me by my mother and in which I had a picture taken at the tender age of six months. One day mother and I were looking at old pictures. She exclajmed, "Look at ,hat dress! I didn't match the embroidery down the front. One design sets above the other instead of being right across." Well, it was far too late to remedy the error, for 1 was fully grown ere this six months oldster's dress was discovered to have the flaw.
