Tidbits From Evelyn tin Koitath County fait dates aren't just fight — too late for some specie of flowers, too early for some fruits. Had it been earlier Mrs Merle Webster could have entered'a Very lovely and unusual flower—a lily named "Gold Bandit." One stalk was three feet Ibng and bore four lovely blooms. When open, the flower, one bloom, mind you, would cover a dinnes plate. Helen tried to describe Jt to me and the best I crin do 4s to say quoting her, "it is a white blossom with gold bands and fed dots." From her description they must be lovely Indeed. She also had plums which certainty 1 : woul<J have taken the blQe ribbon. Thejf were «|ctra large knd most delicious. • . * * ' • i ; Claris Kresenftkv and! her daughter, Alice, left last Hweek for Highland Park, near Chicago, to visit the former's sister, Mrs I. J. Riggs. On Friday Alice went to Buffalo, N. Y. to attend the wedding of a friend and then to New York for the same'purpose. She sails September 5 for Edinburough, Scotland for a year of seminary work at the New College Divinity School. • » • For a number of. years Marilyn Tuttle (Mrs Walter Plumb) was pipe organist at the Methodist church and .als9 the Congregational and she always Welcomed. special music by my coutih Edwin Cady 1 of Houston, Texf I listened tc» -.them., "talk, *hop" which waX'way .over my .head; of course. I was talking with Marilyn's mother the other day and told her Edwin had inquired about her and I reported that she is now mother of two little boys and lives in Pomdna, Cal. Mrs Tuttle added that Marilyn is keeping up with her music and is organist in a church there. • • • Mr and Mr* Howard Bftftrdiley have returned trom & vacation trip to Cheverly, Md., where they visited their daughter Margaret Ann. They went via Cedar Rapids and visited their son, Tom and his family, thence to Evans- tohJ 111., where, they were joined bSHMts Beardsley's brother-in- lawf and sister for the trip east. 4 I t ' * * » When I called Essie Sullivan forjnews the other day I asked, "What' are you doing?" She replied, "Cleaning my finger nails after peeling beets to can," I said, "Getting red off your fingers instead of on." * * * t had an interesting cajler Thursday evening, probably the youngest ever Louise Frances Black, 18 days old, who was accompanied by Her parents, Mr and Mrs Hugh Black. From here she was going to call on grandma, Mrs James Black, my neighbor. She was guest Sunday of her maternal grandparents, Mr and Mrs Ed Hagg, so you see, for a little gal, she has already had quite « social whirl. V ..»•;• • We hove been hearing hammering and sawinl over at the jftoy Hutzells tot several weeks atid the other morning we were given the chance to see what it Was all about.

First came word from Ludlla Crose Andersen of Los Angeles, Calif., who reported the theft of rugs from the church altar, beautiful and costly ones. Then Mrs Milton Norton told of rugs being stolen from the home of a relative in Massachusetts. • * » Bill Bourne and Robert P«rci- val were in an adventurous mood last week Thursday, so they got out their bicycles and pedaled to the Percival's cottage at Triboji Beach. They left here at 6:30 a.m. and reached their destination at 5 p.m. Pretty good leg Work! * * * Mrs Milton Norton gave a "Do You Remember" party Thursday afternoon for her sisters-in-law Edna, (Mrs Arthur Ferguson) of Keokuk and Pauline, (Mrs M. M. Morrow) of Audubon. Now 1 have never heard this name for a gathering of old friends used before, but I thought how appropriate it is, for nearly every sentence was begun with "Do you remember—?" A lot of water- has gone under the bridge since we were girls and there was much reminescing to be done. Other guests were Laura Nor-' ton, Beth Schemel, Dot Smith, Mattie Thorpe, Mabel Hauberg and myself. When I read Mattie's whipped cream cake recipe in the Des Moines Register a few weeks ago, I meant to clip it, it sounded so good. It was just as good as it sounded, for that was a part of the refreshments served. It was so delicious I recommend it be used often and Mattie said it is easy to make, * * • » What has become of good old fashioned ground cherries?

It isn't o trip I ever thought I'd like to make, and that is something for I am always ready to take off for far away places. It seems I am wrong about this highway, for Ann Clark reports she met a woman and her two children, who were making the trip from Alaska to Columbus, Ohio, and reported the route wonderful. 15 Exhibits From Kossuth Entered At State Fair Kossuth County 4-H girls Will' be represented at the Iowa State Fair by 15 top clothing exhibits selected from the appioximateiy 1,000 entries exhibited at the County Achievement Show.
