The Paul Faze family south of
Bluffton had a double celebration last
Sunday, the occasion being the 17th
wedding anniversary of Mr, and Mrs.
Faze and the birthday anniversary of
their four year old daughter, Pauline.
The family spent the day with Mrs.
Faze’s brother, Oliver Sutter at Oak
He was undeniably handsome—that
young sergeant on Main street the
other day, and apparently a stranger
—but that didn’t stop two subdebs
with a candid camera who corralled
him at the bank corner and asked
permission to take his picture. He
consented to pose and the girls got
several shots. Then they asked his
name and address, but he demurred.
“But”, they insisted, “when we get
the film developed how will we know
who it is?” Without a moment’s
hesitation the sergeant replied with &
smile, “Oh, just say it’s the unknown
Out at Seth Basinger’s Morning
Star press we’ve often admired some
fine Currier and Ives prints which he
has framed and hanging on the wall.
Currier and Ives were among the
earliest American color printers and
engravers and their work furnishes a
graphic record of the dress and cus
toms of America a hundred years ago.
An unusually large number of these
prints are found in the Swiss Settle
ment, most all of the older homes
have at least one or bore, frequently
covered with dust in the attic. Old
timers say they were given as prizes
for scholarship back in the days of
the little red school house. Genuine
Currier and Ives prints are valuable
and eagerly sought by collectors.
However there are a lot of imitations
so before you part with your cash, be
sure it’s an original—they say George
Combs can tell which are genuine.
And speaking of relics—George
Carmack, Bluffton motion picture im
presario, has a hand-operated vacu
um cleaner, one of the first to be put
on the market and forerunner of the
present motor driven cleaner.
They are not relics for museum pur
poser, but in every day use, those old
towels which Wesley Tipple has at
his home in Orange township. How
ever, they could qualify as relics, for
they were made by his mother, Mrs.
Eli Tipple from flax which was raised
on their farm. The Tipple family
were among the early settlers in Or
ange township, their farm being in
the Main school district. The towels
made more than fifty years ago are
still in excellent condition, showing
no sign of wear.
Death of Milton S. Hershey, 88 year

“This reminds me of the games we
used to play” mused one of the real
oldtimers as Bluffton and Ada battled
at the College homecoming game last
Saturday afternoon. “West and Flick
were about our only experienced
men—most of the rest of us never
saw a game before. The only differ
ence is that we used to get taken by
50 or 60 points.”
