and you’ve got to be pretty alert to

street boys rained out Friday and
Saturday were pushing lawn mowers
Sunday and gardening is on a
catch-as-catch-can basis lucky if
you can catch a half-day when the
ground is dry enough to work
anyway these rains together with
warming weather are setting the
stage for mushrooms and some of
the boys did fairly well over the
week end—however ,in the main the
pickings of early spring mushrooms
have been none too good fire

canning this summer if fruit is as

of early cherries they say that last
cold knap hasn’t done much damage
and one of the most beautiful
sights in town this week is that
oriental cherry tree at the Stettler

Bluffton’s barbershop quartets some
forty years ago and speaking of

While most people probably do not
encounter more than one tornado in
a lifetime, Rev. W. L. Harmony,
former pastor of the Bluffton Luth
eran church who lives in Findlay,
has had two narrow escapes within
the last nine months. Fact is the
tornado which struck Findlay on
Tuesday of last week came within
two blocks of the parsonage where
he and his wife live. Last August
a more severe twister which devas

two miles of where they were stay

both occasions he said there was
comparatively little wind where they
were, although major destruction by

Did you know that Robert Steph
an who writes a radio column in the
Cleveland Plain Dealer is a former
Bluffton boy? His father, the late
Charley Stephan about 50 years ago
was proprietor of Bluffton’s Hotel—
later the Hotel Russell that occupied
the site where the Citizens Bank
stands. The hostelry was destroyed
back in 1919 in what was probably
the town’s most disastrous fire.
There are a lot of folks who start
to keep a diary but those who con
tinue year after year are few’. One
of the most consistent we know is
Will Kidd, south of Bluffton. For
52 years—since 1895—he has kept a
diary and has never missed a single
daily entry. Come to think
of it a diary going back for 48
years would make a sizable library.
Six “girls”and one “boy” who
from Bluffton high
school fifty years ago—the class of
1897—will be honored at the annual
alumni dinner Friday night.
All of the class are still living.
They are: Mrs. Anna Herr Basing
er, Mrs. Mabel Bentley Hauenstein,
Mrs. Clara Lugibill Welty, Mrs.
Myrtle Bentley Killen, Mrs. Grace
Patterson Storer, Mrs. Bertha Lewis
Fifer and William H. Romey.
And speaking of graduateh of
past years, there is a picture of the
class of 1895 exhibited at the en
trance to the Neu-Art studio in the
Triplett block which should prove of
interest to older Bluffton residents.
Rice has been grown in Africa
since the seventh century, having
