July 20, 1965 Algona (la.) Upper DM Molnn iHimmiiininiiiiiiiii^^ Sarah Clark, now Mrs. Harold Quisley of Nortjjwood, called on me the other day. We had such a nice visit. She was nurses' aide at Good Samaritan when 1 met her and later took a course In nursing at Albert Lea, Minn. In spite of her marriage and motherhood to a daughter, Lori, 2, she still keeps her hand In the nursing "game" In several projects at Northwood and with a doctor tnere. I am always glad to hear that, for with the knowledge acquired in training, It is a pity to let it go to waste. * * * It seems almost incredible that when I first saw Joan ?ost she was an Infant of but a very few weeks and being carried in her mother's arms and was brought to mother and me to see when we were sitting on the front porch. She was a cunning baby, round cheeks and beautiful brown eyes. Who would have dreamed she would be helping me to bed years afterward. But such is the case. She has chosen nursing as her career, following her mother Lavonne's foot-steps, and even taking training in the same school of nursing. St. Joseph's at Sioux City. During terms, she is working here at Good Samaritan and her year's training shows up in her aptitude. She has made a "hit" with the other girls as well as the patients. * * * Mrs. Dick Allen wasDr. Plotfs first surgical case when he came to Algona not too many years ago. He did a Caesarian on Mrs. Allen when her first child Mary Lou was born. And his last surgery was another Caesarian on her when the son Steven James was born recently. Steven is "special" as he joins a family of three sisters. * * * I always thought the Hugh Smith, W. C. Dewel families were unusual. The women were sisters. Mrs. Smith had five girls and Emma Dewel had five boys. Alice Condon's family "out-girls" the Smiths. Her family consists of seven girls. She showed me a picture of them, all in a row, taken many years ago. I was able to distinguish her though there was a strong family likeness. I forgot to ask her what each had done. One has been deceased, but not long ago. * * * I got'out my family album to show her what I looked like in the bloom of youth. Last evening*'I went through it and added some dates and by whom the pictures were taken. At six months, two, and eight years the photographer was J. F. Nlcoulin, At eight, 11, 14, 16 and 19, A. L. Peterson was the photographer and at 25 and 28, Harry Nolte did the "shooting" The latest was done by Glenn Graham for Good Samaritan purposes. And, of course, in a box is a, large collection of Kodak pictures, alljun to look at and recall the g*xxl times represented. * * * Fishermen may not like this, but I'll risk it. "This would be a fine world If all men showed as much patience ALL the time as they do when they're waiting The Ted Smiths attended a Husbands reunion June 27 at Dallas Center. No fooling the surname is Husbands. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bird have been visited by her brother- in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. John Hochberger, Covina, Calif., who are taking a "honeymoon" trip In reverse. They have been married for some time and since Niagara Falls is considered a honeymoon mecca, I'd say "better late than never". They also visited other eastern points of Interest. * * * "Grace", your "shoo-fly" pie is also considered a "Pennsylvania Dutch" dish and several years ago, I had some at Abner Long's here in Algona. His daughter Dorris Pitcher lives in Pennsylvania and had sent a cook book. Truth compels me to say "it's for the birds", though some may like it. I am not strong for molasses, light or dark, dark least of all - but don't let my opinion deter your readers from trying it. * * * Having had occasion to get into my strong box I checked my gene- ology and looked up this tavern business I mentioned recently. I found that Chloe, daughter of Ebenezer Cady, the second, married an Amos Smith. This Smith built the first tavern in East Schuyler, Conn, to "accomodate travel that swarmed along the Mohawk turnpike till the Utica and Schenectedy railroad took away travel on July 4, 1836." This tavern must have been operated several years prior to 1836 because Chloe Cady was daughter of the Ebenezer who was captain and at Yorktown when the British surrendered. * * * There's no denying time changes things. Years ago if anyone had told me I'd be having a nap on a Fourth of July instead of having fun, I would have told them they were off beam. But I'll have to admit July 4 found me napping about 2 o'clock and being awakened by Casper Thilges' radio blaring out "Redwing", a song I always despised. And then the humor of the situation gave me a good laugh all by myself. I was taken back over the years to around 1905 when Ray Potter, Horace King, Zada Brunson and I celebrated at Bancroft, going up via early morning train. Dad and mother were along to spend the day with dad's sister Eva and husband Bert Goddard. They sensibly sat under the shae trees, but the rest of us had to see what was going on "down town," I don't recall a parade or much activity except a ball game which we watched a while in a shadeless spot. I ' knew nothing about the game still don't - so I was glad when it was proposed we go to the dance hall, I think it was in the dining room of the hotel. Dancing was "up my alley" and "Redwing" was being played a two step. Well, we danced till heat compelled us to seek a drug store where we could get cool refreshments - cool off to go back to the ball diamond, to go back to the dance, to go to the drug store - and of course, H,dance !ftgain My last celebration before arthritis changed my life was spent at Clear Lake and was by far the nicest. A nice parade, a boat trip to Bayride, lunch there all by ourselves In a little meadow not far from some cottages, little hay cocks to lean against and read the magazines we had along. A boat ride back, a taxi ride to Mason City where we freshened up at my aunt Mary and uncle "Pat" Cady's home, a walk down town to Join my cousin Edwin who played In a theatre there, a good sundae at a drug store and home the next morning. My companion, Harry Weidman, has been gone quite a number of years. And here I am, headed for "old age." Well, it's something to be able to look back and remember fun. * * * And lest you think I am bemoaning and am morbid, (Heaven forblt) I've had a lot of good times post-arthritis. * * * Mildred Johnson breezed in Saturday, she and her husband Andy stopping to see Frank Johnson and she came for a chat with me, too. They were enroute from Cedar Falls where Mr. Johnson is managing a motel, to Okoboji for a weekend with friends. Mildred is just as full of pep as ever, brimming over with good cheer. * * * I wish you could see the bouquet of pansies Jessie Sarchet brought me today. I never saw such huge blossoms. * * * Dear Mrs. Geesman of Burt Thank you for your nice letter. It deserves a little information about myself. My last name is Cady and I am a resident of the Good Samaritan Home. I am an only child and both my parents are deceased. I have had arthritis a number of years. I came here and am very happy. I use crutches indoors, but a wheel chair on the streets, so if you should ever see me, introduce yourself to me. Your poem on "Just Meditating" was sweet. I'll confess to you I like seeing "cloud pictures" too. * * * William Navoichick must have decided he wasn't going to let Ray Funk have all the sympathy and attention, so he managed to have a leg injury while playing golf. They are closely associated in another respect - William is father of Ray's son Leonard's wife, Pat. The Leonard Funks have been here from Milwaukee, Wi§. visiting at both homes. Ray suffered the greater injury, broke a leg and hasitinacast. William wasn't put in a cast, but isn't getting around in a not sprightly manner for awhile. Well, misery likes company, 'tis said. * * * I am sorry Heft out Frank Sterling in that group of men who took the sewing club members to the Dinner Bell recently. No, the men were not banished to another table. They were allowed to eat with the women I * * * Two women stopped at my door yesterday and inquired where they would find Adele White. I told them second floor and on their way back one said, "Aren't you Evelyn Cady?" "Yes", I replied (truthfully) and she said I am Loretta Longley of Mason City. The Frank Long- leys, well known, were her parents and I knew them and had seen them a few times on the streets of Mason City when we used to go there to visit with am* Mary and ancle Willis "Pat" Cady. l;orettft Is retired, on pension from the telephone company and when she said she had never married, I said "Shake". With her was a niece Ruth, married, Los Angeles, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Helberg. Mrs. Helberg was the former Erma Longley. * * * Other callers I was glad to see were Elsa Goeders and her granddaughter Linda Falken- hainer Smith (Mrs. Chester), both of Independence, Mo. Linda's mother Is the former Jeanette Goeders. Linda was so Interested in Algona and is interested in her geneology. She was fortunate enough to get into the grandpa and grandma John Goeders home now owned by Mrs. Kalar. She is a niece of Helen Falkenhalner Pletch, Is a slender blonde like her mother. Mrs. Goeders plans to spend the winter in Florida where she andher late husband Dennis lived tor some time. * * * Our rose garden Just north of me is beautiful. I had an unusual bouquet of lilies Darlene Orton brought to me the other day, and some for Mrs. St. John. She called mem pond lilies. They resembled a tulip, some were varl-colored, and one was all yellow, one all white.Their stems were very long and limp, so the stems had to be cut short and toe blossoms put In a shallow dish. * * * Rex Post is a husky young lad, but has been persuaded to try and lose some poundage. He's 12 pounds less and expects to go further ... for so young a lad, he is an interesting conversationalist. Board Proceedings VEMI-AHlfUAI. SETTLEMENT OF THE BOAHD OF SUPERVISORS OF KOSSUTH COUNTY.
