Client Writes Tribute. The death of Mr. > Sullivan removed on of the best loved Algo- Tilans. Mr. Sullivan's honesty and integrity made friends of even his opponents. One of his most prized possessions was the following letter, written in 1912: "I can '.hardly resist intruding up•on your time to tell you that, at last, the Palo Alto matter Is settled to my entire satisfaction, and llke- "wlse, has the approval of my counsel here. I must also tell you of my deep appreciation of your very .kind consideration of my interests, your patient forebearance with what I •leaned might seem to you vacillation and unsteadiness of purpose as well as your adroitness in find- .ingf an unobstructed way out of a ..situation that to most of us might •have proved a tangled thicket of perplexities. "I have been afraid you would suspect that I was not dealing -with you with the absolute candor that I professed, for I was wel aware that appearances wre against me. It must seem unaccountable to you how Boston affairs should . "ba-ve so much to do with legal pro 'ceecllngs in far away Iowa. But now I feel quite sure you were able to guess. Were it not for the unfail- *!\B, watchfulness and care of my •attorneys here I would not now be •writing this letter to you. Sullivan Highly Complimented. "Many people have said to me, "Lawyers are robbers: they would take the, last cent you have." I s,'.y, "The most honorable, the most kincl- Tiearted, the most faithful, the most generous men I have known in all my seventy years have been lawyers." Had it not been for their skill and faithfulness—alas! where "would I have been! "Each year kills some hope I have "tried to cherish—tried to nourish; but each year deepens the conviction that a man does not have to sacrifice honor in order to be what •the world calls successful. "I have faced you, Mr. Sullivan, -through many horrible days of horrible scenes—more horrible than I •would even wish my bitterest enemy :to ever realize and yet, I say can- •didly that you never for one mo- .-ment caused me to feel that you "were unmanly or ungentlemanly, or •'that you unnecessarily wounded me. "I am glad to have known you -and I shall never cease to be grateful for the favors you have so sym•pathetically shown me. If I ever .So to Algona again it will give me -pleasure to meet you; if I never do, you will remain with me a pleasant memory so long as the mind has the power to recall the generous souls who have made the dark journey of 3ife .less dark." BAPTIST, Kev. F, H. Webster, Pnstor—At the Baptist church next Sunday morning the Rev. Frank H. Webster, retiring pastor, will give his farewell sermon to his church.

Nothing could be further from the truth. It eral months. Some permanent, the claim — is still what K,w M a quarter £ a century ago—a mushy, trite, story for adolescents, written by Robert W. Chambers, the sex bad-boy 6f literature of the early nineteen hundreds. CONSTANCE BENNETT, now our highest salaried actress of the cinema assays to put Into the dls- creplt old carcass a little life, but it's all too hopeless. Times ' change and so also the morals of a people. The' situations, in the Common Law are ridiculous in the light of today!s events. Maidens no longer blush at a : furtive kiss and scandal monger- Ing has become so exalted an art that we merely pass It by and yawn. To make a long story short, there Isn't a redeeming feature about this old wreck—even the dialog Is stupid and halting. Noel McCreo, goes wo'rk. There are sweeping vlstfts of snow-capped mountains, great .white banks of fleecy and creamy looking clouds against a background of dark blue sky, placid lakes and rushing torrents,' sage brush and scrub pines, panoramas of thrilling beauty —gobs fthcl gobs of scenery as a fellow traveler once told us out west. What matters if thesplot is old ahd the law of "might is right" ' still rules; what matter If the villain, is all too apparent or the situations look a certain skill In direction;'The Holy Terror Is still the week's best nd we don't care Who says It Isn't. T HEY ONLY WENT BACK A cbuple of thousand years for the plot of Politics; Aristophanes had the women of Lyslstrata "strike" on their husbands till they gave up go- Ing to war; In live newest /screen version,'the wives go on.a strike until their husbands will vote for Hattle Burns (Marie Dressier). Politics Is an amusing farce, acted as only our beloved feminine cut-ups Marie Dressier and Polly Moran are able-to. Roscoe'Ates, he of the faltering voice, adds the final bit humor to the already ludicrous action. ' A CROWDED auditorium greeted Politics and a satisfied audience filed Whlttemore, Aug. SB—The annual ark picnic will be held In WhlUe-> more this week Thursday. The cele- ration will start, at 2 p. m. with a all game between Whittemore and Jancroft. The Bancroft team Is one of the est semi-pro teams In northern owa, and has a battery that Is Hard o beat.

He is also a member of the Sigma Nu social fraternity and the Pebul honorary social fraternity. In high school at Algona Paul was outstanding in athletics. He was an all-state football player, and per- 'ormed well in basketball and track. Since he majored in industrial science, Trauger plans to get a job in the industrial field either in sales or production. Mr. and Mrs. Trauger moved from Algona to Ames two years ago. • NAUDAINS FIRST CAME TO UNITED STATES IN 1696 Infant Son Dies Suddenly— The Clarence Krauses mourn the loss of an infant son, William, born Sunday morning at a Fort Dodge hospital. • Short funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon with the Rev, A.

THE ARTISTS' BALL has been Introduced with an eye to the box office but we can see better plastic posing in any circus. Situations which 25 years ago were extremely naughty—such as models disrobing —are now looked upon in the more sensible light of an artist's privilege and necessity. Yes, things are better now—peeping Tom 'episodes are put today where they belong—Itt the class with morons and idiots; • The pathetic part of The Common Law is that it links the season's worst story with one of our most popular and talented actresses, • a. combination which will add nothing to Constance Bennett's reputation. OOMETIMES IT ALMOST seems O as though you could visualize the scene in a moving picture studio; director, scenario writers, camera men, actors and actresses in conference—contract calls for another picture—only a few days remain—something must be done. So everybody pitches in, ideas are hatched up, suggestions made here] of the doodad, ed out to clean up the town, got into all sorts of difficulties but finally "put it over." The dialog of Politics Is exceedingly clever and some situ ations are just a little broad, lowing^iain the trend of the early Greek comedies. There are times when Polly Moran almost steals the show from Marie but the latter rises nobly'to dramatic heights in the las reel, when she takes her erring daughter In her arms, and torn b: the keenest maternal grief, talk flippantly about washing the kitch en curtains and making jell.

His right leg was crushed by the wheels. He was picked up by. the train crew and taken to Emmetsburg, where the leg was amputated. Loss of blood and the shock, together with a run-down physical condition, caused his death in a few hours. THREE ALGONA PAPER BOYS WIN TRIPS TO STATE FAIR Three Algorra. paper boys won a trip to the state fair this week as guests of the Des Molnes Register for work for the paper. They will go to Des Moines tomorrow morning with Donald Akre's sister, Rachel Moore, who is visiting here - this week from Hellena, Mont.

A majority of Lu Verne people attended the Golden Anniversary at Renwick either Thursday or Friday and some went both days. Good weather and a slack season in farm work helped make the celebration a success.

Mrs. H. w. Helmick and daughter Evelyn, of Brighton, and Mary Buffern, of Denton, Texas, visited at the Harold Philips home last week. Mrs. Helmick is Mrs. Phillip's mother.

SUCH A TALKIE is Too- Young to Marry with Grant Withers and the lovely, dark-eyed -Loretta Young. The show Is clean as a whistle, as simple as the ABCs, as modest as a violet, and about as entertaining as a home talent play. Have you ever wondered why you go to 'home talent plays? The acting is usually terrible, scenery worse, plays second-rate but you get a mild "kick" out of their utter simplicity and un- sophistication. Well, Too Young to Marry belongs to the same class. TO SAY THAT ANY of the acting was outstanding would be to cast a reflection on the talkies; the parts give _no opportunity for 'anything but a broad characterization.
