Tidbits From Evelyn the Kossiith County fair dates aren't just right — too late for some specie of, flowers, too early for some fruits. Had it been earlier Mrs Merle Webster could have enterecUa very lovely and unusual flower—a 1 lily named "Gold Bandit." One stalk was three fee't long .and bore four lovely blooms. When open, the flower,- one bloom, mind you, would cover a dinner plate. Helen tried to describe it to me and the best" I cati do is to say quoting her, "it is a white blossom with gold bands and red dots." From her description they must bo lovely indeed. She also had plums which certainly would have taken the blue ribbon. They were . extra large and most delicious. * * * Claris Kresensky and her daughter, Alice, left last week 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 ,also the Congregational and she.always welcomed special music by my cousin Edwin Cady'of Houston, Tex. I listened to. them "talk shop' which was-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 Pomona, Cal. Mrs Tuttle added that Marilyn is keeping up with her music and is organist in a church there. •, * *. Mr and Mrs Howard Beardsley have returned from a 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 Evanston, 111., where they were joined by Mrs Beardsley's brother-in- law and sister for the trip east. * * * When I called Essie Sullivan for news the other day I asked, "What are you doing?" She re plied, "Cleaning my finger nails after peeling beets to can," I said, "Getting red off your fingers instead of on." * * * I had an interesting caller Thursday evening, probably trie 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 sqe, for a little gal, she has already had quite a 1 social whirl. ' • » • We have been hearing hammering . and sawing over at the BE HAPPY Modern Thermogas FOR HOME HEATING IHERMOGAS COMPANY /'Eiigmeered Irtstdiafibhs'f ' Phillips Street Algona VCV 4-2841 Roy Hutzells for several weeks j and the other morning we were giyen the chance to see what it was , all about. Floyd Hutzell, industrial arts graduate, has been making furniture and what a beautiful job he has done. * * • I've read of a lot of mean persons and here are more to add to the list. First came word from LUcilla Grose 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 Percival 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 C:30 a.m. and reached their destination at 5 p.m. Pretty good leg workl * * <? Mrs Milton Norton gave a "Do You Remember" party Thursday afternoon for her sisters-in-law Edna, (Mrs Arthur Ferguson) of Keokiik and Pauline, (Mrs M. M, Morrow) of Audubon. Now I have never heard this name for a gathering of old friends used before, but I thought flow appropriate it is, for nearly every sentence was begun with "Do you remember—?" A'lot of water has gone under the 'bridge sinca we were girls and there was much reminescing to be done. Other guests were Laura Norton, 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? I never see any on the market, never hear anyone mention them, and oh, they are so good. ., ' • » » » Thai "grand old lady" Mrs Helen Paxson has decided to give up keeping a home and has gone to the Roberts Nursing Home. This is a well deserved surcease from 'household obligations carried . on so faithfully these, many "years. ,.

It is so good I think there are many who would like to 12 large peaches, peeled, 1 orange, 1 small can of. crushed pineapple, 9 cups sugar. Mash peaches, add orah'ge, peel and all which has been through a grinder. Add pineapple and juice. Boil gently till cleat. Seal while hot. • * • I always Ihink of the Alcan highway as being a long, tiresome, scene'ried highway winding through a wilderness of trees and alternating wide open spaces ol not much of anything. It isn't ;i 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 i •-.
