Friday, July 17, 1936 A warm day. I went to Shelton with Clara Beard and Mrs. Nichols as Clara needed a wit- ness when she filed her intention to become a citizen. I stopped at the county health officers and sent two samples of water to be examined. Then I went with Aunt Mary to Penny's and bought a dress. Home and found Sam get- ting "Hell" from Mrs. Orr over the water. He walked away. She told me Wanda's stomach was upset. And I told her that she knew Wan- da had not been well for two years and she couldn't blame that on the water. Told me that I most likely didn't send water from the stream in that I took it from the tap. Down to the beach to swim. My, the water was fine. Saturday, July 18, 1936 A busy day. I went swimming at 4 and how I enjoyed it. Bill Orr came over and talked to Sam about the water. Was real decent about it so Sam may let him hook onto our line for $100. To the beach early and made salad and lemonade for Sunday. Was over to Beards. We plan to leave at 7 in the morn- ing. Stopped in at Nichols and saw how Hills place looks. It's about-finished. Sunday, July 19, 1936 Up early and left at 7 for Gig Harbor. We ate on the ferry and reached the mountain at 11:20. We went through the Inn and down to the camp to eat our lunch. Could not find a table so sat down near a tree when a man told us we could not eat there so showed us where we could eat. We rested after lunch and then walked up so we could see the Nisqually gla- cier. Then we met Lieut. Ecklund and his wife and another couple. Down to the road and got a malted milk and started home. We got a good picture of a bear about halfway down the road to Longraire. Ar- rived here at 9:15 and went to bed early. We surely were tired. By CLYDENE HOSTETLER Monday, July 20, 1936 A very hot day. Sam went to Seattle and then decided to go to a meeting at 4 o'clock so won't be home until 8 he said. Called up about 2:30. Cleaned up the warehouse and tobacco coun- ter. Speed and Jack worked on the shelves. Not very busy. Terribly hot out was the reason. The store very dirty. I dusted the glass and Cloroxed some of the shelves. Put oil on the feather duster so it does a better job. Helen Buldoc is giving a party on her folks. 30th wedding anniversary but if Sam doesn't come home I don't think I'll be able to go. Will send a card anyway. Wanda was in the store twice today so I guess she isn't sick now. Cliff Ragan was badly injured at Brooks camp Saturday. We haven't heard today how he is. Received my new table cover today. And my, it's a beauty. I'm very proud of it. Also got my watch fixed. Cost me three dollars. Got it in saltwater. Tuesday, July 21, 1936 A very hot day.

Speed went to the doctor and found he was bitten by a beech beetle. Put out beer prices in the beer case and tobacco prices near the tobacco. Charlie got some oil from the CCC camp and delivered feed to Mrs. Jensen. He cleaned a lot of boards and junk out of the backyard. He put the springboard on the raft yesterday and it certainly is fine.

They'll Take Bermuda, Engelsen Sisters Say Practically every mode of travel from bicycles to airplanes, with emphasis on the latter, was employed by Miss Clare Engelsen, Mason County clerk, and her sister, Nina, of Olympia, on a five-week trip covering an estimated 10,000 miles and taking them as far as the British island of Bermuda, 600 miles out in the Atlantic ocean from New York City. The Engelsen sisters arrived back here Sunday evening so full of the sights they were a little bewildered trying to remember them all. Youths Admit To Harrassing Lady Two Shelton juveniles, one 14 and the other 15, are scheduled to appear in juvenile court after admitting to harassing an 81-year- old blind woman. The two, Billy Sollock, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Sollock, and Elton Olson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Olson, were arrested by Shelton Police after neightbors had informed authorities of the problems the elderly blind woman was having with the boys. The pair admitted tying a rope across the back porch of the woman's home to see if she would trip over it. One of the boys admitted making an obscene remark to the woman and poking her with his finger. Two women arrested; 740 pot plants seized Some 740 growing marijuana plants and equipment for growing marijuana were seized and two women arrested at a residence in the Dayton area Monday morning, the Mason County Sheriffs Office reported. The sheriffs office, Washington State Patrol, and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration were jointly involved in serving the search warrant at West 4071 Shelton-Matlock Road which resulted in the confiscation of the marijuana plants and equipment and the arrest of the women.
