Cunningham 88 on Tues day and Aaron Geiger out South Main street way who will be 90 on Friday and a run of hard luck for the Cal Depplers whose turkey destined for Thanksgiving dinner died a premature and natural death several days before. And speaking of hard luck, the Wayne Mosers living south of town will tell you that trouble comes dou ble. You recall that their house was destroyed by fire two weeks ago— but you may have forgotten that it was only last spring that a tornado which roared through that district demolished their barn. The barn has been replaced by a steel struc ture—and they are moving a house from the Lee Shilling farm near Ada and hope to be in it by Christ mas. In addition to deer which have been reported in the Bluffton area this fall, a red fox was sighted by Ezra Moser and his son John while hunting on their farm north of town the other day. The fox, when seen w-as running toward the nearby Ed Lugibill farm and Wilbur Neil’s woods. Neither the Mosers or Lug ibill, who also saw the animal as it raced across the fields succeeded in getting a shot at it before it dis appeared in a nearby thicket. It was most unusual—that floral centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner at the Cal Steiners on Poplar street. Mrs. Steiner, whose flower garden is a beauty spot throughout the sum mer, found ten varieties still bloom ing, thanks to the mild November weather. The bouquet which adorned the table for the Thanksgiving feast consisted of delphinium, chrysanthe mums, verbenas, marigold, sweet alyssum, roses, snapdragons, petun ias, pansies and feverfew-.

While Quentin Burkholder and son Harry w-ere out in Clinton, Iowa, last week seeing the exhibit at the Pillsbury feed mills, Quentin took time off to reminisce with his old time army buddy John Amend, liv ing at nearby Olin, Iowa. Amend w-as Quentin’s sergeant dow-n at Camp Jackson, South Carolina dur ing the first World war and despite all the harsh things that have been said about army sergeants, a friend ship developed which has continued throughout the intervening years. Amend has visited here several times and Quentin has been a guest at the ex-sergeant’s home. Both men are in Chicago this week at the International Livestock exposition where they will write another chap ter in their friendship book. That old muzzle-loading musket that E. E. Redick had on the street Saturday afternoon is a treasured family heirloom. It has been in the family for more than a century, having been brought from Germany by Redick’s great grandfather, Adam Barnhart in 1833. Barnhart, a native of Hesse Darmstadt, arrived in this country with three small children, his wife having died at sea. The family set tled on a farm w-hich is now- part of the village of Jenera and the gun was handed dow-n in the family coming into possession of Mrs. Eliz abeth Gossman of that place. Having no children, Mrs. Gossman turned over the heirloom to Redick, formerly of Orange township, now living in Silverwood, Mich. The musket of the cap and ball firing type, complete with wooden ramrod, is in good condition and the walnut stock, handsomely hand carved, de picts a spirited hunting scene. Plum curculio did not prove to be a serious pest of Ohio apples this past year, according to Ohio State University Entomologist T. H. Parks. It accounted for less than 3 percent of the blemishes found in 33 orchards inspected under the clean orchard program. The red banded leaf roller accounted for more blem ishes than curculio and usually w-as present in orchards that had received DDT in past spray programs.
