After dinner, Grant Pletcher, coming from Chicago on vacation, brought out for presentation to his brother Joe, a bit of Joe's handiwork he had found while exploring the attic. It was a toy cart, desrom two wheels of another with body carefully fashioned from ia cigar box. It was made when Joe was about 6 years old.
