of This-"n' That By Mike Lakin Wally Kautz had an interesting visit at the Court- house. A woman from Akron, Ohio stopped by. While touring the Courthouse, she asked ifWally, by chance, knew the Rupp sisters. He did. The visitor's interest was from an event 65-years ago. At the end of WWIl, she was a younggirl and a German refuge. A package of clothing arrived at the refuge camp. In the toe of one of the shoes was a note - "from the Rupp sisters of Mt. Pulaski". She was so thankful for this gift that came from the Mt. Pulaski Zion Lutheran Church; and the simple scrap of paper from the Rupp sisters. Wally filled in the details for the visitor about the Rupp sisters. The Ohio visitor was thrilled to learn abouther benefactors from so many years ago. Wally said that was one of those days at the Courthouse that shows how a simple act of kindness can impact someone's life. Speaking of the Courthouse, a new book is out - People & Places in the Land of Lincoln (by Dan Guil- lory. Mayhaven Publishing, Inc. $17.95). Mr. Guillory singled out the Mt. Pulaski Courthouse for a special note. While he was at the Courthouse he was told he wasstanding on the actual floor where Lincoln stood. He said, "That .was an 'aha' moment. I stood there and felt the power of the place. My book is for people who really want to experience Lincoln's world during his Illinois years. That graceful little courthouse is one of the places to do it." St. ]ohn's Pronto Pups were back for the Fall Fes- tival. St. John's Master Dog Cooker Emeritus: Harry E.
