Tidbits From Evelyn as delegate from the Degree of Honor lodge to attend the National meeting at Los Angeles, viYr S », e took with her the children Helen, Kathy and Perry. She <&ras at Pomona tind Clate- mont, visiting her brother John gun* at the latter place. At Baldwin p£frk, a suburb of Los Angeles, she visited her brother- in-law, Edwin Hobbs and the l-esftective families of those named, and from California She went to Richland, Wash., to visit her mother, Mrs Bessie Dunn, brothers Mavnard and Jerry Dunn and wi*, and Mr and Mrs Homer ftaekes and children. At Reno., Nev., the visitors stopped to see a brother-in-law and sister of Mr Hobbs. * * • The J. D. Bum ha** had company, the first visitor being Mr Burns' brother Francis of El Reno, Okla. Later guests were the son, James, his wife and little daughter Joanne. 11 months old of Magnolia, Ark. James had previously lived at La Crosse, Wis. Of course they spent some time with James 1 sister and family, Mr and Mrs Dewey Skilling. * * • Mrs William Shackelford called me the other day to talk about ground cherries. She has a few shrubs but is getting rid of them — they take over the whole garden. Well, what of it, I ask? I'd rather have a garden of ground cherries than most anything I know. Mrs Agnes Laidley called me one day to find out where she could buy some. I said, "I haven't the faintest idea. So far I've been doing right well by merely say ing I'd like some." Both of us are in the market if there are any to be had. * * * I heard such a nice story about the late Roy Richardson. For some time he had hired the same lad to do yard work and he told him if the tad would put some of the money in savings, he'd duplicate the amount to add to it. That shows a real interest and the desire to impress a young boy with the importance of thrift. * * * I had a bad case of "spring fever" yesterday and sat on the back porch lending moral support to Lizzie Post who was pulling weeds from her garden. All at once a robin chirped. He felt spring in the air too — that nice warm sunshine went to his head too. I haven't heard a robin for several weeks. * • • Mr and Mrs Bob McCullough, Bruce and Mari attended the Sioux Land horse show at Sioux City last week Sunday and entered their Hackney horse. I will have more to report on this when Christine gives me further news. * * • Hazel and Frank Vera were in Iowa Falls recently and helped their son-in-law and daughter Melvin and Elvie Hutchinson move. They are building a new home in Iowa Falls where Mel has been working for some time. They had lived at Waterloo and he has been commuting. Unfortunately they had to take a house for 30 days till their home is' completed. So I supposed Hazel and'Frank will go down again in thirty days. * * * It is strange how church affiliations get changed around. I had a nice chat with Rev. M. H. Brower the other day. We spoke of the centennial celebration of the Presbyterian church which is being held in a short time and I told him my great- grandmother Elizabeth Heckart, (Mrs John Heckart) and her daughter Elmira were charter members. Another daughter Emmaline was Congregational, my grandmother Margaret Heckart (Mrs Thomas Henderson) was Methodist. The Rev. Brower confessed he was at one time a Methodist, that his mother still is and is active in the Methodist church societies. Another aunt on my father's, side, Eva Cady Goddard was Episcopalian in Peninsula, Ohio, Methodist in Algona, and Baptist in Bancroft. Rev Hallauer started off a Methodist and changed to Congregational. Any more changes? * * • Ruth and Glen Raney haven't been very happy the past several days. Their pet dog Foozer died at the venerable age of thirteen. He developed a kidney ailment and all that the Vet could do to no avail. Foozer has lived a happy life, loved and well taken care of. If that's a "dog's life," every canine would be happy. t t ^ It is quite a record when an entire family, one so large, gets together for a reunion. Last week Sunday Mr and Mrs A. J. Klooster went to Eagle Grove to attend the reunion of Mrs Klooster's family at the parental Mr and Mrs Robert Morgan home. All eight children were present. * » » How many of you were out late enough Thursday night to see the Northern Lights? I wasn't, but Lizzie Post saw them, BO did Dick and he in turn called Dutch Honsbruch, to do some "star gazing." Lizzie said if she hadn't kOPwn what it was she might have been frightened. She said it was a beautiful red streak clear across the sky- I'd like to have seen it. * » • Mrs Beryl Priebe is made of the stuff for which our pioneer mothers were noted-—courage—* for she braved the perils of the west and took her daughter Connie to Boulder, Colo., to enroll as freshman at the university. True, she didn't go via covered wagon, but an automobile presents more hazards than a faithful team of horses. Connie, Jean Hall and Sharon Powers have been employed at the Okobojis during the summer, tucking the money away for college purposes and also gaining a lot of experience, all on the pleasant side. I haven't checked with the others. Mrs Priebe and Connie made the trip alone, and where the courage comes, is the return trip done solo. - It's kinda lonesome too. But Mfs Priebe found everyone to be kind and at one place a man noted that 55 license and came to assist them in finding a parking lot. It was a Mr Cavanaugh, formerly of Fort Dodge, and an attorney at Denver. Again, it's a small world. Algaita (to.) _ thurtdey, fcttti* O«6h is back Omaha, where she went to spend a few days with her son and daughter-in-law, the Rev. and Mrs Knute Orton and to attend a farewell given them. They left via train for Chicago and after a brief visit there with friends, went to New York City, thence to Paris, France, and after a few months there learning the language, they will land in Equatorial French Africa for work in the missionary field. It was interesting hearing Merna tell about the suit cases and other luggage they took, medical supplies, miscellaneous articles, and clothing to last four years. One nice feature, they will have a house, one as modern as possible in that location-fully furnished, and the Ortons only packed the linens necessary to a household. Here's the best of luck to the Ortohs and a safe return in four years. Warren G. Harding is the only man who went direct from the Senate to the Presidency It PAYS to deal with a LICENSED REAL ESTATE BROKER . . . He's Your Friend and Neighbor He's reliable.
