At Mason City's THEATERS The story of "Kesurrectjon" Is a confession. That fact is being made public in connection with the Oxford Press Edition of all of Count Leo Tolstoy's works, an elition which presents for the first time the Tolstoy novel which has been the- most widely read in English of any of his works in the original form In which he intended to have it published. The story is not only a confession, but also for the first time it is now being disclosed by his biographer that the main complication of the "Resurrection" story, as it will 'be seen at the Cecil' theater starting Wednesday, actually happened in real life. In fact, it happened twice. The personal experience and the related experience made such a deep impression on Count Tolstoy that he expended upon this book more pains, mora care, more of his own genius and linowledge of life and love,than he did on any of the other fiction which ho turned out so rapidly and so successfully all his life.

LAST TIMES TUESDAY Millie HELEN TWEtVETREES Iowa Boy is Rewarded W ffiN children are weak and rim-down, they are easy p_rey to colds or children's diseases. So it U never p wise to neglect those weakening and depressing symptoms, such as Dad breath, coated tongue, fretfulness, feverishness, biliousness, tack oE energy and appetite, etc. Nine times out of ten these things point to one trouble--constipation. Mothers all around you are coming right out in public to tell how their children are being relieved of this trouble by California Fig Syrup. Mrs. J. W. Heritage, 1405 Richmond Ave., Des Moines, says: "I read about California Fig Syrup in the papers, so I knew what to give "Wesley when I saw by his bad breath and coated tongue that he was constipated. « He has been more than rewarded for taking Fig Syrup. It made him a well, happy boy promptly. He never complains of any symptoms of constipation now." The genuine, endorsed by doctors for 50 years, always bears'the word California, All drugstores.

The romance of railroading has become a part of everyday American life. The lure' of it Is as -real today as it was 60 years ago when the first trans-continental trains were linking two oceans across the breadth of the United States.
