The following article is taken from last week’s Northwood, lowa, Index, and will be read with interest by the manpr friends of Mr. Hustvedt: “Mr. H. B. Hustvedt of Decorah was one of North wood’e distinguish- ed visitors of this week when he was mainly the jucst of his life long friend, T. L. Ringham. Thirty-seven years ago Mr. H„ then in his young manhood, was serving the North- wood Synod congregation as its able pastor. We well remember his good work in the amendment campaign of 1882. It was sometime that year that his vocal cords failed him, an 1 he abandoned the active work of the ministry to take a position with the Lutheran Publishing House and the Posten of Decorah. We also think been in ministerial, literary and edu- cational work almost ever since. He has certainly grown gray in* the ser- vice, but we recognized him —as an old friend—almost at the first glance. He lias seven worthy child- ren, all engaged in honorable ser- vice. His oldest son, Prof. S. B. Hust- vedt, has a fine position with the University of Minnesota. Prof. H. won his degree as Doctor of Philoso- phy at Harvard, and later as winner of the Parker traveling fellowship, had the advantage of a year of study and travel in Europe, mainly in Eng- land, tho’ he spent some time in Norway, Denmark and Germany, and was glad enough to get out of the last named country during the first weeks of the war. Prof. H. utilized this town as his birthplace, in 1881. so Northwood has a claim on him and his honors! Another son, Olaf Mandt Hustvedt having the blood of the Vikings in his veins, is a lieu- tenant Commander on board the Battleship Utah, on service in the English Channel. His wife is a daughter of Judge Church of Hono- lulu. Thomas is an employee in the Decorah postoffice, and Willie the youngest boy, is in service in France, if not already on German soil, he being a soldier of the fam- ous third trmy. Of the three daugh- ters of the Hustvedt family, one is at home in Decorah and two are liv- ing at Granite Falls, Minn. As an old friend we secured this information from a most unassuming man, by hard pumping. We pass it on to other friends who will be glad 1 to hear anything good, and who would not expect to hepr anything else of tfcfe Hustvedt family. Ole Dotseth Had Narrow Escape. An overheated caldron of fat, in which baker Dotseth was about to cook doughnut*, burst into flame at 6:30 p. m. and caused a fire alarm. It was a bad looking blaze for a few minutes, especially as the hospital with u number of patients is located in the second story of the building, but w;:en Mr. Dotseth recovered his presence of mind and put the lid on the caldron the danger was over. The interior of the bakery w r as scorched and blackened by the smoke but the damage was light.*—Waukon Journal. Here's What County Agents Have to If you think the county agents don’t have much, to do, just listen to what they did during the 1917- 1918 fiscal year. There were twen- ty-eight agents who worked a full year. The rest of the hundred were appointed in time to work anywhere from one month to eleven and a half. The average was about seven months of work. , In this time, thesr agents spent 10,100 days in tne field, talked to 131,472 callers at the farm bureau office, made 38,752 farm visits, hell 6,227 meetings attended by 263,329 persons. The average agent on a year basis was in the field 173 days, had 2,232 callers, vetted 660 farms, held 108 meetings with an atten- dance of 4,476. These agents prepared 5,799 arti- cles for local papers, wrote 1,993 circulars and posters, distributed 382,128 circulars and posters and 191,139 bulletins. Wear Flu Mask* on Streets. In order to completely exterimi- ,'natei influenza the special hefclth board in Des Moines Friday ordered the universal use of the influenza masks. The masks must be worn every- where except in the home where only members of the family are present. They must be worn on the streets, in street cars, automobiles and all public conveyances, in public gather- ings of all kinds, including stores, theatres, offices, schools and church- es. It seems as ir you cun never get so well off but that there are a few a little better off, nor so bad off but that there are a few a little worse off. DECORAH PUBLIC OPINION, DECORAH, IOWA. Women Vote in 22 States. The National American Woman Suffrage Association announces th.it the constitutional amendment to en- franchise the women of Oklahoma has passed and now there are 22 states in the country where women have either full, Presidential and municipal, or Presidential sufferage alone Woman Suffrage won in two ether states, Michigan and South Dakota, at the recent November elections, losing only one of the four in which the question went to the voters, the last state being Louisin- na. This means that women now have a voice in the 213 electoral votes of the 22 states in which th«?y may vote. The victory in Oklahoma is all the more gratifying to suffrage workers, it is stated, because of the difficult conditions there, it being re- quired that the suffrage amendment in order to be passed, should have a plurality of all the votes cast for candidate or r.ny issue.
