Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014 -Mason County Journal- Page A-27 MARY'S MEMOIRS It is duck-hunting season, and the menfolk are much more successful than they were at deer hunting. Mary dukes it out with the Minnesota Woolen Mills salesman. They stayed up quite late listening to the election results, and Roosevelt is way ahead. Enjoy ! Thursday, Oct. 29, 1936 A fairly busy day. Home late and read one of my new books. By CLYDENE HOSTETLER Friday, Oct. 30, 1936 Sam came home Fri- day night. I went to the card party and had a good time. Home very late. Saturday, Oct. 31, 1936 A busy day. A Min- nesota Woolen salesman was here and threatened me because he claimed I was telling people not to buy from his company. I was dumbfounded be- cause I had done no such thing. After hearing him talk, I realized he was mad because I returned a parcel at the desig- nated period instead of holding it over:due. Sam and Harry Hyde went to Shelton to a political meet- ing, and Char- lie and I went to a masquer- ade at Bickles. We had a fine time but ate too much so couldn't sleep very well after- ward. Very cold out. Sunday, Nov. 1, 1936 Louie, Henry, Sam and Charlie went duck hunting. Sam and Char- lie got five ducks, and Louie and Henry got sev- en. I went to Sundstroms to visit and found them ready to go to Oakland Bay, so I went along. Saw most of their family there. Back to Sund- stroms and ate a wonder- ful chicken and oyster dinner. Irene and Carl went early. I sat and talked until late. Then home and found Sam had gone out and killed another duck. Irene and Carl plan to get married before Christmas. The family wants them to wait until spring. I won- der who will win. Monday, Nov. 2, 1936 Sam went to Seattle. Everything froze up and very cold. The little truck had a dead bat- tery and a flat tire, so we went to the store in the car. Charlie dug holes for blasting stumps to- morrow. Delivered hay to Stephens and feed to my dad's. Received a let- ter from the Minnesota Woolen Mills salesman, so I sent it to the post office inspector in Se- attle. If anyone has been accusing me unjustly, he can find out who it is. Mr. Foster died Sunday. The funeral is Thursday, the same day as Erma Orr's shower. I suppose not so many will be there on account of it. Had the new blankets on my bed last night. My, how warm they are. My birthday present I'm us- ing ahead of time. Tuesday, Nov. 3, 1936 A very busy day. Nearly everyone in Bel- fair was in at some part of the day. We stayed up quite late and listened to election returns. Roos- evelt is way ahead. Clara washed clothes and got most of them dry. Wednesday, Nov. 4, 1936 A dreary day. The light company came out, so the stumps were all blown. Did a good job too. Late this ai rnoon, I went to town with Mrs. Judkins and bought a serving table for a shower gift for Mrs. Gor- don Orr. Met Camellia Pearsall, and she rode home with us. I bought some things for myself at the 10 cent store. Mostly pant hangers for Sam, shelf paper, etc. Home at 5 to 6. Cleaned up all post-office work. Wrote to Minnesota Woolen Mills in Tacoma to let them know the facts of the case as per inspector's letter. Saw the welfare lady, so she will try to find some work for Mrs. Carr. Mr. Ahem won in the elec- tion, so Harry Hyde and Sam are going down to see him tonight. Bought some flowers from Mrs. Schricker for Mr. Fos- ter's funeral tomorrow. The club wanted a spray for 75 cents and found they couldn't get a spray for that price. I guess they had never bought many flowers or they would have sent more money. Flowers are quite expensive. Mrs. Betz from Dewatto was in today. She looks fairly well but walks with a cane now. Ruth and I I never got the old Main picked the ducks Sam Camp bell for Capt. and Charlie got Sunday, Kent. The junkman in- and they certainly are sisted it was included fat. We will have them in the junk, so we had roasted tomorrow. The to release it. Howell light company wouldn't thought perhaps they hook up Ruth and Chet's would overlook it, but I house because Doug had the box on upside-down, see MEMOIRS, page A-28 .
