MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAY 2 1936 NRUBYMH CHAPTER 33 The pages of .Laura Randall's diary, as we went on, I looking over Keyes' shoulder as he turned the leaves, were full of Joyce. Things she was doing, things she had said. Things a mother would say of a beloved daughter. Miss Randall did love her charge, and was trying to do her best for her. Soon was mem- tioned now and then in a. derogatory fashion. Miss Randall had no respect for Chinese, apparently, and she could not understand her employer's regard for his servant. That Joyce, too, should think well of Soon, was distasteful to her. Little incidents made up Laura Randall's life, yet she wrote glowingly of them. Joyce's shopping trips, the things she had bought, the books Joyce read, a party Joyce had had in fcer sitting room, a small illness of the girl--thre days of worry over it, then relief when Joyce recovered from what was merely a common cold. Keyes skipped over the pages hurriedly, but I wanted to linger on, read them again and again. Miss Randall had a faculty o£ making her pages breathe with the everyday events of her lif e. There was Joyce's first meeting with Allan Foster. After this the faint jealousy that crept through the lines, jealousy of Allan Foster. Somewhere around June there was this item, "What with Miss Joyce getting married I shall have to be finding a new place. And I had thought that two or possibly three more years here would be my last, for by that time I shall have saved enough to rest on for the remainder of my days. Rest is what I've wanted so long. Thirty dollars a month will see me through, but it is a hard ?30 to make. All my life I have saved, and now when the goal is so near, there will be a new place to get. I had thought this my last. Mr. Van Every is so kind,- the work so simple. I should like to remember him as my last employer. But Miss Joyce will not need me when she marries, and I shall have to look elsewhere. Other people I shall learn to care for, only to leave. That has been what my life has been, caring for people, only to leave them. Leaving Miss Joyce will be the hardest, probably because I am getting older." The entry of October 9 made both Keyes and me start. "Mr. Van E* ery has strange people visit him but today the strangest pair I have ever seen came here. I saw Soon bring them up to his library. How Mr. Van Every, who is a good Protestant, can entertain two nuns of the Catholic church I don't know. But.he did. His business at times baffles me. Soon took the two nuns upstairs and left them in the library. They stayed several hours, and then at 4, Mr. Van Every took them downstairs himself, politely, as if they were distinguished visitors. They were dressed in black robes, with black veils, underneath which were white starched hoods. Franciscan nuns, I found out when I looked up their dress later in the evening in Mr. Van Every's library. I could not guess their ages, but one seemed older than the other. Her face was rather forbidding, stern, and she was taller than the other. The other seemed kinder, and walked more slowly. Mr. Van Every accompanied them to the front door, went out to the street to a taxi which was waiting--I saw this from the sitting room window--and put them in. In the library in the evening I happened to mention that I had seen his unusual visitors, but Mr. Van Every had little to say.about them. He seemed preoccupied. Miss Joyce knew nothing of them when I asked her. · "October 10. For the third time since I have been in the house I have seen a letter from Ossining for Mr. Van Every. It was lying on top of his mail on the desk in the library where I went for a book. Soon is staying almost constantly in the library since yesterday. As soon as Mr. Van Every enters, he goes. I can't understand it. The letter from Ossining worries me. That is whfere the big prison is. -Who should be writing Mr. Van Every from there?" "October 11. Mr. Van Every has been gone practically the whole day, and Soon has not left the library. One of the other servants is taking his place. At any rate, I know where he is when I want him. I peeped into his room in the basement today, and it is altogether heathenish. Neat, but oriental. There were three idols on a table near his bed, one an incense burner. I don't trust these eastern sarvants, and I can't see how a fine man like Mr. Van Every tolerates them. It is none of my business, however. I was hurrying to a subway tonight on my way to 'Romeo and Juliet,' as Miss Joyce lias gone out dancing, when I saw a taxi parked up a block. Mrs. Bryce was in it. She was probably waiting for Mr. Van Every, as he had just some in when I was ^'oing out, Mr. Van Every is at least careful about his affairs. This is the second time I have seen Mrs. Bryce. The first time I described back last year. She seemed at ease in the taxi, and apparently didn't see me. She was smoking a cigaret. But I recognized her. I never forget faces. "October 12. The mystery is solved at last. Mr. Van Every has told Miss Joyce he has a famous ruby in the library, has bad it for several days, which is the reason Soon spends so much time there, lie is guarding it. Miss Joyce wants to see it very badly.'So do I. If it is really the Camden ruby, it has a bad history--I have read snatches of the ruin it has wrought. If Mr. Van Every would only let Miss Joyce and me look at it! I asked him and he said no. He would rather not. As usual,' he was kind about his refusal. "It is embarrassing to go into the library for a book, when Soon is there. He has a fashion of looking straight through one. When Soon is not there, Mr. Van Every is cour-. teous, pleasant, as if there were no such thing as a precious jewel in his library. But when he is not there, and Soon guarding, the room is eerie, and the Chinaman makes me feel creepy. Miss Joyce has said that somehow she is going to see the ruby. I have not the heart to chide her for her curiosity as I am anxious, too, to see it. "October 13. The ruby is still in the library, but although Miss Joyce has begged her uncle, he will not show it to her. I am beginning to despair, for Mr. Van Every told Miss Joyce today that in a few days he will put it in his safety deposit box. I know where the safe is in the library. I have discovered that. Under the brass wood box on the hearth. I was passing the library door today when I saw Mr. Van Every slide back the box and dust his hands. This is the second time I have seen him near this particular box. It can only be the safe. "Mr. Van Every had an important visitor this' afternoon. The doors of the library were closed. This is unusual because always they are open. Even when people are in the library. When the two nuns came a few days ago, they were closed. I saw the man leave. Perhaps Mr. Van Every was showing him the ruby. The visitor was a well-dressed man, tall, with whitish hair. He did not seem old, however. I have never seen him before at the house. "October 14. A woman has been in the library. I know because of what I found in the library. 'Mr. Van Every insisted that Miss Joyce and I go to a matinee. He even procured the tickets for us, which is unusual, as this is more or less my duty. When we returned, Miss Joyce went immediately to her room, and I to the library where I wished to talk to Mr. Van Every about the play. He was not there, but Soon was. The room was smoky, and on a table was a tray full of cigaret stubs, stained with lipstick. They were cork tipped and I picked one of them up to take to my room so that I could examine it more freely. Expensive brand. Mrs. Bryce smokes, but I do not know the brand. It must have been Mrs. Bryce, otherwise Mr. Van Every would not have been so anxious tc? have Miss Joyce and me go out for the afternoon. Miss Joyce smokes,although I do not approve of it, but she smokes an entirely different kind of cigaret, and she was with me the whole afternoon. I shall, of ccuree, say nothing of this. Mr. Van Every at least was discreet. . . . "October 15. Reporters were here today--about the ruby, I guess. I went to church this morning and when I came home I found them here. Mr. Van Every seemed greatly annoyed, but was polite to them. Miss Joyce seemed to know one of them, at least she spoke as she went by the library. She told me later she had met one of them at a dance. Miss Joyce was out all afternoon with. Allan Foster, so I was alone, and put in my time to advantage reading. I have been neglecting my reading lately with the ruby in the house. As yet I haven't seen it, and I am more anxious than ever. After the reporters left Mr. Van Every invited me to have dinner with him, as he was to be alone, Miss Joyce being out. The ruby was not mentioned. We talked over Miss Joyce's affairs, and Mr. Van Every was most kind in his praise of me. I .feel that he highly approves of me, although he sees the difficulty I have doing anything for Miss Joyce. He said he had spoken of a trip around the world to Miss Joyce, with me as her companion. Before her marriage. A long trip. Miss Joyce refused to go and leave Allan Foster, he said. He admits he cannot understand his niece. Neither can I. At times she is a lovable, darling girl. At ether times, she tries me sorely. She was in a rage when she came home --something Allan had said. ' I couldn't fathom what. She eried herself to sleep, and would let me do nothing for her." (TO BE CONTINUED} 2 Held to Grand Jury at Hampton on Check Charges; Put in Jail HAMPTON--Walter Edmons and Acil Vicker were araigned. before Justice D. W. Parks Thursday and bound over to the grand jury. Edmons, employed last fall by-Walter Baker near Thornton, is charged with raising a check given him by Baker from 53 to $30. He was arrested Tuesday at Morrison, Bl., his home, and returned here by F. C. Schweiger, sheriff. Vickers, employed by Richard Philipps, who operates the stone crusher south of town, is charged with forging the indorsement on pay checks belonging to two other employes.

SHOW MUST GO ON IS HIS RULE Sigourney Singer Swallows Pin But Does His Part With Glee Club. By DON DUKIAN Associated Press Staff Writer IOWA CITY, UP)--Keith Van Fleet, a member of the Sigourney Boys' Glee club, is one of those who believes that the show must go on. Just before his organization was scheduled to sing, Keith lost a suspender button. "My tie pin," he said, "will hold my pants up." Attempting to make the necessary adjustment, Keith placed the open tie pin in his mouth, sneezed and swallowed the pin. He went on with the glee club, sang his part, and then went to the university hospital. Physicians took x-ray pictures, and said the musician was in no danger. Gaiety Is Forgotten. The gaiety of the festival and even the aspiration for honors was forgotten Thursday night by several hundred northwest Iowa contestants. Word that a. tornado had struck their territory causing fatalities and devastation, spread quickly among the musicians. Unable to call or tel- tegraph some of the storm struck towns, many of the contestants waited at the local morning newspaper office for information from the storm area. An automobile accident on the way to the festival failed to daunt Kenneth Feise and three girl vocalists of North Des Moines high school. After the car driven by Feise smashed against a stalled truck near Colfax, the three girls hitch-hiked here and sang on schedule. Feise came in another car and won "superior" in the flute solo event.. Matron Has Nightmare. A matron at one of the cot centers housing 50 girls spent the small hours of the morning getting her charges quiet and asleep. Throughout the entire process she retained her poise and her temper. Finally the giggling and subdued conversation in the room ceased. The girls and the matron slept. Then a blood curdling scream rang through the dormitory. "Help! Help!" It. was the matron having a nightmare. There was no more sleep. Robert Houlihan, Ida Grove, the only contestant to. win a superior and excellent award Thursday, is a star football halfback, basketball letteiman and track sprinter for his high school. Six Honor Students. Spirit Lake's brass instrument group, the only superior winner in the event, was composed of six honor students. The five boys in the group are football and basketball athletes. The Storm Lake orchestra believes it is no better than its oboe player. Bill Rueffson, the oboe player, was left at home because of illness but was expected to join the group, here Friday morning. Unless he is recovered the orchestra will probably withdraw from the contest. Rueffson has the solo part in the number "In a Persian Market." Operetta Tuesday Night. GOLDFIELD--The "Glee clubs of the Goldfield high school will present the operetta. "Bittersweet Anne." at the Memorial hall on Tuesday evening. The operetta will be given under the direction of" Miss Bettie Keith, vocal music instructor. JOHNSON RAPS MAJOR PARTIES Farmers Union Head Says Both Have Given Farmer "Run Around." DES MOINES, U?--A. J. Johnson, acting president of the Iowa Farmers Union, accused both republicans and democrats Friday of giving the farmer "the runaround on the question of agricultural imports." "The republicans," he declared, "want to make imports the sole farm issue, while the democrats are trying to minimize the issue with false propaganda. "The trath is that while importation of farm products is a dangerous thing, the mere halting of such imports will not solve the farm problem. "The republicans hope to work up enough hysteria over farm imports so they will not have to meet the farm problem. The democrats are trying to becloud the issue. Both groups are doing everything possible to avoid the issue of the Frazier-Lemke farm refinancing bill and the cost of production measure." 11 Persons Killed in German Plane Crash NEU-ULM BAVARIA, Germany, (!P--A German military plane crashed during night maneuvers, it was learned Friday, killing 11 persons instantly, including the members of the crew.
