S. Sav- ings Bonds can turn into a mighty snug harbor in an - emergency. If an emergency never crops up (and vje^ope it doesn't), you're a he aid considerably more than your Bonds cost you. Bonds earn interest at a guarantee*! rate. At maturity, you get back $4 for every $3 you invest. And your invest- ment is backed by the United States of America. And there's that quiet satis- faction that comes;from know- ing your Bonds'age helping Uncle-SamJtnrild the jcau&e of freedom throughout the world. So get with the millions of Americans who have found Bonds a safe port in a storm. And a solid base for the future of they? families* ' Buy U.8. Savings Bon4s eTAK-SfWKHIO SAY1N0* MJW As I have not been m-touch with you since I had to discontinue these weekly-letters and poems last July 19, 1955 - My Angina Day$. we have tried to keep the column alive thro* the pages of \Down Memory's Lane \ - which I would say can go oa easily for another six months, or so, in weekly installments; I sincerely hope someone is reading and enjoying it. Please keep in mind that these stories were written 13 years ago - or in 1953, and that I have been rewriting them and bringing them up to date - 1966, as they appear in Serial form in 'The North Countryman 1 and Valley News each week in the TV section, and also preparing them to' add to My Manuscript that is nearing completion. 19??—My uncle, Lewis White, taking me into a meat market in Canton, to show me a 'big-man.' You've guessed it right! It was Lenn Rogers of Mr. Finnigan's stories. I well remember his 'special- ly -re -inforced-chair 1 as Clarence Buddington Ke Hand writes about in his \Scattergood Baines 1 stores. Another well remembered meat market, was Alex McChure's,, in Richville, N. Y., when I went to that village to get the team shod or a grist ground, dad would give me two dollars to pay Alex McChure for a piece of boilin' beef - I could hardly lift it. Alex would cut me off an inch-thick pjece of b'loney to eat goin 1 home. (Free). ONCE, I lied to my Mother. She had sent to Arthur Grey's Store in Richville, for three pounds of pea- nut cookies. I bought them alright, also, three pounds of b'loney at Aleck's. Alex cut off four or five thick slices for me to eat goin 1 home - (as usual) the rest of it was in a big chunk; the good old fashioned kind that was pressed in a hog's bung-gut - about eight inches across it. Well, I started for home - also started eatin' b'loney and peanut cookies. About one-half mile from home, I discovered that there were only about six or seven of those good peanut cookies left; what would you have done?I'et' 'em! Then ^1 had to tell 'ma' that I had forgotten them.\ (Later, I told her the truth) when I was a boy, the height of my ambition was - to own a meat shop, so that for once I could have all the b'loney I wanted to eat. 'However, after sKcin' quite a few miles of it during the past eight years,, at The Korner Store, I can't hardly look at the 'stuff.' Too much potato - flour and cereal IN it - and too much meat OUT of it. Just ONE man's opinion. ********** 1910-1918—An old fellow used to come to our home every Thurs- day to sell us FRESH-FISH. My mother hated to fry fish of any kind - but Dad always bought of Mm. This old fellow had had a shock (or stroke)! don't know if they are the same or not - anyway, it had left his side completely paralyzed, and also affected his speech. The only way he could STOP talkin', was to holler \by God.\ You had to hand it to this old fellow, he had 100 pounds of fish come to Rich- ville Station every morning but Saturday. It was shipped in boxes of ice -from Cape Vincent (that was back in the days when old people, cripples and all, were trying for an honest living - and not letting other's support them). This old fellow would drive in the yard and shout - Freeh Fish, sir, by God. And no bones, sir, by God! \ After he had made a sale, he'd holler again, \I'll be back Sunday, Mon- . day, Tuesday, Wen'day, A THURSDAY, by God! \ and - (by God) he'd be there! (Thursday). ********** . 1893-1915—Salted ciscoess Every winter, dad would bring home 24 pounds of ciscoes; yes, I 'wrote TWENTY-FOUR pounds - they, were six pounds for a quarter- and he would buy ONEdollar's worth. 'Ma\ would 'sputter' about them for ONE evening - then she would clean, and take the back bones out, never leaving ONE bone - next - they had to be soaked m cold water for about four days taremove the salt; that was always a long four days foe a hungry farm kid to wait. Sometimes I buy a few ciscoes to bring home. 'Gussfe' sputters just like Ma did but cleans them and eats her share. I wrote 'a lew* - They are about thirty six cents a pound - now. Dad used to buy fifty cents worth of oysters crackers - they filled a sack of the size we put five dollars and twenty cents worth of groceries in now. We call them 'carrying bags.' Another thing dad always wasrbuying - fig newtons, whenever we went to Richville and had- to wait to get the team shod, dad would buy a lunch and you could always depend - it would be 'fig-newtons.' Peanut stick candy was another of dad's specialties - he never brought us kids any other kind. 1 recall going to Hermon on a very cold day with Dad. We were bundled up good under the old Buffalo robe; Eri Beard, father of Wriley'N. Beard of Canton, came out to the road to talk with Father - he said, 'Isn't it cold. Do you know that the thermomeier hasnt been UP TO ZERO in thirty one days 7 \ I recall visiting at their home m Canton, many years later; I can stilt 'feel* the cold drag of those steel «led shoes as they were drawn over the narrow ploughed and kittled iqadsj i n that way below zero weather, they could be heard squaklngior naif a mite.
