Tidbits From £ve//n f wo-thirly o'clock in Ihe morning is an eerie hour and add strange noises to that and the stage is all set for a "who donit." I was av/akened the other morning at that hour by the oddest noises—The first foggy thought was a 'laughing hyena" though know they are not found outside a circus m these parts; Then as I became more awake, 1 thought "geese or ducks", but mighty peculiar sounding ones. As "they" approached, the noise became more fearful and spine tingling. Finally "They" landed just outside my bedroom — the noise was terrific and I'd never heard the likes of it before, i heard Esther stirring around upstairs, awakened by the noise too, and called up to her "Fos heavens sake, what Is it." "Owls", she called back. When she put her light on, they dispersed and quiet descended. Esther has lived in a heavily wooded area in northern Minnesota and had heard them before. Not that she ever liked them, but they weren't a puzzle to her. * * * Mr and Mrs Arthur Schweppe left Friday for Madison, Wis., for a Schweppe family reunion at the home of a brother and sister- in-law, Ml- and Mrs A. W. Schweppe. Others of the family who were there were the brothers, Bill, Herbert and Oscar, and a sister, Esther and the respective spouses and families. The reunion is of particular interest as Bill is leaving soon for Nigeria, Africa to resume his work in the mission field. * * * Dana Harr, seven year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Raymond Harr of Madrid, is a pat- FRI., OCT. llth MIDWEST CARAVAN SAT..

Her mother is with her and is taking instructions in order to care for the child when she is permitted to go home. Mrs Edria Harr, grandmother of the child, is at Madrid caring for the other children. The other grand' parents are Mr aim Mrs J. P Smith. * * ? M* ftfld MM "Heinle" Sfebriit have their grandchfldren here and are caring for them till the father, Bob Stebritz joins them here in a month or two. The mother died last June leaving a now four months old daughter, Christy, and sons, Patrick, 3, Robert, 7, and Michael, 10. Bob and his wife lived at Fort Worth, Tex., but Bob Wants to change locations and get a place near here, or in a vicinity farther north. He plans t6 'take the children with him when he gets re-located. * * * The corner lot on North Harlan and East North streets which belongs to the city is undergoing a series of beauty treatments. It has been landscaped, flowers and shrubs set out and come spring, it will be one of Algona's beauty spots. I could suggest several more improvements on other sites. * * * I was relating my owl experience to Myrna Orion and told her I thought is was a family argument, one wanted to go "this-a-way" and the other wanted to go "thata-away". She said "No, they were after something— a mouse or rat probably." Living in a wooded area, she has heard them frequently and feels the same as I about them—a little goes a long way. * * * I asked Mrs L. L. Snyder how it happened so many doctors got in her family—her husband and her father, Dr. Orian Cheetham of Creston — both occulists. She added, "Well, my grandfather -was also a doctor." * * * Lavonne Post is back from Iowa City where she goes each month for a check-up at the State University hospital. She developed a skin ailment during the summer after a bid case of sunburn. It was discovered at Iowa City that she is allergic to sun. When the days grow shorter and the sun is farther aw^y, the ailment improves, but she has to be careful of too much exposure to sun. * * * Ray and Lila Potter spent some time Friday with the Rev. and Mrs O. W. Brand at Forest City. Jlev. Brand was pastor of the Methodist church here several years. Friends of Mrs Brand will be interested in learning that her health is much the same as when she was here. * * * Wasn't it nice the Band Festival had such a lovely day? Usually it tries to be a gala event in weather like the following day. This is a gloomy, threatening Sunday. I wonder if the youngsters realized what good fortune they have in gaining musical knowledge and the privilege? thereto. » * * I forgot to tune in at K.G.L.O. Mason City T.V. the day Lewis Ferguson gave a talk on coins. I am sorry I missed it. He has been a 9ollector for some time and is even more interested in obsolete bank notes. His family, including his mother, accompanied him and much to their surprise wvre allowed in the same room where the cameras a/e turned on the performer. / * * » Last week I gave an item on the hospitalization of Dianne Kuhlmann, daughter of Mrs Wilma Kuhlmann. Dianne was to have a birthday anniversary in a few days and cards and letters in a hospital are of great value to a patient. She is in room 234 at Worrall hospital, Rochester, Minn. She is under treatment for a rare skin disorder which has begun to clear a little. * * * My second cousin May Walker. called the other afternoon. She and her husband, the late Wil! ( Wajker, will be well remember-' ed. He died several years ago and she has made her home for some time in Chicago with her son, Phillip, and Cedar Rapids with her daughter, Frances. While here she was house guest of Mr and Mrs Don Hutchison. , Jt is strange how family likenesses show up especially as one grows older. I mentioned to May how much she resembled aunt Em Heckart and my grandmother Margaret Heckart Henderson, who bore very marked likeness to each other. * * * J had a nice chat with Olive Reid the other day. Harlan Miller has mentioned us a few times in his column and we are flattered no end. She told me about a birthday party given for her Monday, Oct. 3, by Mr and Mrs Kenneth Percjval, Mr and Mr§ Lloyd Gerber and Mr and Mrs Leo Gardner. They also presented her with a gift. * » * . The guest list for the housewarming party for Beulah Wall- ukuit numbered 14 and with one "regret", Nan Ward was a little perturbed at the prospect of 13.
