Page 2A- The News - Friday, July 22, 2016 n'ty Don Henderson sent me anott er story, like I begged him to do. 1 should save it for later and surprise you with it, but it is another great story, and besides that, it is summer and 1 am lazy, and don't have anything near- ly this good to put in this space. This is from Don's book, Diary of a Backwoods Preacher, or Stories my Granddaddy told me. By Don Henderson Special to The News MALAKOFF-This story was told by my grandmother, Grace Henderson. As was tradition at Easter time, all of the ladies wore their new hats for Sunday morning services and dressed in their finest. Some of the hats were wide-brimmed, some more fancy with deco- rations on them. Some of the hats even had veils. The men wore their hats also, but left them in the foyer as they entered the church. They too were dressed in their best suits and ties. This was a tra- dition that had been shared by the church for many years. No woman wanted to be outdone nor did she want to appear in church, on Easter Sunday morning Loretta Humble Around Town without a new hat and without one's Sunday go to meeting best Ac- cording to my grand- mother, she had worked all week, earning about 35 cents a day, and on Saturday afternoon had gone to the local store in search of a new hat. She picked out one that she liked and after pay- ing $3 (for that day and time this was a large amount to pay for a lady's hat), she carried it home. The hat, still in the original store sack, set in the bedroom on a chair near the windows. The normal Easter cold spell had arrived that Saturday night and the wind howled and rattled the windows. The following is the story that my grand- mother always told. During the night the rattling woke up my husband, Oscar and he wanted to stop the rattle. He did so by cramming paper in between the window and the frame. After a while, it rattled again and Oscar got up, gave it another good cramming and went back to sleep. He heard no more rattling the rest of the night. That morn- Creative Arts Corn ing when I woke up, I anger// I tried to iron immediately spied that out the wrinkles in the paper in the window hat, which had been and realizing that it was crushed beyond recog- the sack containing my nition.

Meantime,brought me a cup of Oscar, realizing what he coffee and said, "Here's had done, immediately some coffee with cream went to make coffee in and sugar! !"
