Uowyer. „ Hollywood, Calif., Apr. 17 — Mrs. Kathryn RecQ Baughn, of Oakland, and her daughter, Zelda Reed Trathen, spent the week-end in Los Angeles,- driving here from Reno, where Zelda lives. Her husband is the sheriff of the county In which Reno Is situated, and he Is said to e the youngest sheriff in the Uni- ed States. Zelda has given up'her iterary work, and helps her hus- and In his office. She also returns tolen cars to their rightful owners, nd she was here on such a mission. Walter Scott, wife-of "Death /alley Scotty," lives near Zelda, and he came with them; also a. young' vpman, friend of £elda. They stop- ted over night In Death Valley, at he famous castle, the grandeur of vhich, they said, 'it Is impossible to escribe. There they took a car of Mrs. Scott's to drive home in after hey had left the stolen car here. Mrs. Baughn and Zeldtt came to ee us, and Gwendolyn and I took hem to call on old Algona-friends. Ve then went to their hotel to get Mrs. Scott and ttie girl friend, and [rove around tfie city and to Santa Monica, beach. 'Scotty," Death Valley Millionaire. As "Scotty" is such a widely known character, perhaps Advance readers will be interested in a few >articulars about him, as told by j rtrs. Scott and Mrs. Baughn. He is j 8, she Is 5fi, and they have one son. ktrs. Scott must have been a pretty girl, for she still has dark, auburn, urly hair, a fine complexion, and line features. She would also still >e. In fashion, if she would dress a a Hollywood. Scotty loves the limelight and to ravel, but his .wife does not. He spends a good deal of time in Los Angeles, and she says he has now 'gone Hollywood." He doesn't stay n-the Valley much of the time. He las a partner, a Mr. Johnson, of Chicago, who is a semi-invalid, and the climate In Death Valley Is beneficial to him. The partner and his wife live there in winter, and the Summer In a carrara marble home n Chicago. They are very religious, Mrs. Johnson being an evangelist of the Methodist faith. They were here at the same time Mrs. Scott was, and Mrs. Johnson .preached four times in this localityj .Nearest Neighbor, 75 Miles: .'• Mrs. Scott is a character herself. She said the Johnsons employed two missionaries all the time to "make whoopee" at L. A. Reno is her favorite place to live, though she came from New York and lived here- in the' early days. Death Valley is too hot and lonesome for her. The nearest habitation is 75 miles away. Scotty goes to visit her in Reno, jyjd'When his 10-gallon hat and red necktie appear he "is surrounded by children, who pick up money he scatters. Mrs. Scott says It was Scotty who put Los Angeles on the map and started the "all year round club," which advertises the city. This was in: 1905, when he hired a special train to go from here to New York, stopping only to ' change engines Mrs. fecott accompanied him, and as there was no Pullman she was continually thrown from one side of the car to the other and. got no sleep. At Albuquerque and other towns where they stopped to change engines, the stores, schools, etc., were closed, and everyone was at the :'statlon, where Scotty scattered money, How Scotty G»ts Monc^y. It is not generally known that Scotty.' }s married. Last year, when he" hadn't been on the front page for some time,' he. gave out a report that he bad failed. •We Is called "High Grade Scotty," for his gold mines are of such a high grade that When he wants money he just goes to a mine, takes out a chunk, and turns it over for money, He employs a large number of people, has a fine home built for them, and has two tall, fine-looking Chinese chefs, one for the home, the ether for the help, Mrs. Scott, says Scotty used to do the cooking 'at home himself, when they had three or four guests, but now nhe .guests are too numerous The "castle" is the only place in the Valley to put up at. It Is situated in a small canyon which has only one entrance vte- a gorge so narrow that a large, car Is apt to scrape the "sides, ' ' ' "Castle" Has Cost $3,000,000. Sootty and his partner own all the mountains and the land for miles aVound, having bought it from the government. The sum of $3,000,000 has already been spent on the castle, and" it is not finished. A large pool is ,now being built, to be lined •With blue Imported tile. A great deal of Imported tile and marble has been used in the building, which is of cement and Is considered fireproof. Tb> greatest" clanger is of cloudburst, the castle being built on an Incline at the foot of a mountain. Scotty traveled In Buffalo Bill's sh,pw 13 years. He was the fearless rider who <Jashe4 "across the arena at full speed and picked up a hand- tardhief from tti'e ground.

Iowa lost one of her most Intelligent and staunchest friends. He was honest, and he had great ability. He should have been kept In some public position, where he could work for the state. Algona seems to.overlook her men of greatest ability. In that class I should include Clayton's son Harold. Col. Thomas F. Cooke is again a candidate for the city council. Though he has done good work for the city, he has a fight on his lands. It would have been the same no matter who had -been councilman, for a large amount of paving and widening, of streets has been ;lone, entailing great expense to property owners.
