ALGONA YOUTH SEES MANSION OF 122 BOOM8 Wanders in Midst of Luxury in Castle in Wisconsin. ' By Evan Finnell. Lake Geneva, Wls., July 7 — associating- with the caretaker and detective of one of the largest and -nost exclusive estates on the lake I had the opportunity of viewing the nterlor of a three-story castle, vhlch consists of 122 mammoth ooms. Including 22 "baths. The entire estate consists of 260 :cres, Including a large model farm, ocated at the rear of the tract away rom the lake. The main estate con- ists of ten acres of heavily wooded nnd on the Ashore-front of Lake Geneva. A mammoth, yet artistic, stone" ence. hides from view of the public ye this indescribable mansion. In- Ide of this fence, which borders on all sides but the lake shore, are i'ell kept beautiful lawns. Many rives wind around among the huge rees which make up the natural re- erve surrounding the main house. Gothic Arches.Are Hand Carved*. Surrounding the house on the ront and two sides is a high elevat- d terrace bordered by a fancy stone ailing. The porch, which runs on he three sides of the house, is made >f cement. Huge stone pillars sup j >ort the stone arches and dome idlings. These arches and ceilings ire constructed on the old gothic ype. Many carvings are a foot deep nto the rock and give the heavy structure a light lacy effect. Upon iewing these many figure heads and carvings I recalled my days in ,n ancient history class. I was again- convinced -I should have stud- ed. i am certain the many carv- .ngsQ>f figures told some story Outside of the porch railing and evel with the floor are lifesize figure heads of roaring lions. These acted, as drains. The water runs :hrough the open mouths to the terrace below.' On entering the house from the rear drive I first passed through a huge kitchen. It consisted of all modern conveniences. On one wal were shelves and cupboards ext^nd- ing to the 16-foot celling.^On either side adjoining the kitcTreh- are two smaller rooms filled with cupboards and large built-in refrigerators. One is a supply room or pantry for the chief cook. The other, which is between the kitchen and dining room is known'as the butler's room. The woodwork of all these rooms is fancy designed and carved quarter- sawed oak; . Dining 1 Room Rich In .Detail. Entering the dining room I was forced to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming.' In the center of an inlaid floor of nearly every kind of wood was a huge mahogany table. The large chairs and table were hand-carved. The walls, witft many full-length arched -windows, were lined with imported tapestry. All rooms were different and carried out on a different scale. The library is a replica, even to furnt- tuije of the historical room, which housed the event of the signing of the declaration. I was amazed at the likeness of pictures I had 1 seen. One who had the quality of day- Republican Resolutions Summarized f here ' fife 18 ' paragraphs In ro84)lt\<tott8 adopted by the republican county contention a wccK ngo Saturday, and It wonld take more than a coliintn to Set them out In full. Snch as »re most Interesting follotvi The record of President Hoover speaks lor Itself nnd,needs no word of this convention to add or detract. Wo wish to commend In highest terms the fearless, 'honest, and efficient administration of Governor Turner. We trust that, the people of Kossiith comity and of Iowa will afford him unanimous support, In his further efforts to consolidate the departments of the state government, effect economies of administration In the government of Iowa, further lower taxes nnd promote their levying In a fairer manner. Wo continue to maintain that taxation should be based upon "ability to pay"; nnd we urge the reduction of taxes on farm lands nnd homes by the greater use of sharply graduated Income and Inheritance taxes. We condemn a general sales tax because It directly violates the principle of ability to pay. We commend the' stand for economy and efficient administration of the national government taken by our congressman, Fred C. Gllchrlst, end we urge his retnrn to Washington by the largest possible popular vote. We urge the support of candidates on the state nnd county republican ticket, and especially those of Geo. W. Patterson and C. V. Clark; candidates respectively for senator and lieutenant governor. We urge.the enactment of sucli measures as will reduce the Interest rate- on farm mortgages. '"We urge upon congress the Immediate adoption of such measures ns will bring the average of commodity prices up to the level of 198Q. We are gratified with the appointment of Gardner Cowles as a member of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation board, and we hope he may be Influential in curing the financial Ills of Iowa. We recommend that laws pro- riding for mandatory road levies be made optional. We recommend diverting a reasonable,amount of the revenues available for road-building over nnd above what Is necessary to meet requirements of the present primary road program for use In the Improvement of secondary roads.

This was; erroneous, for the listings are <r family names,'or names of "lot i owners, and there may be several graves In a lot. ' The flliffl-' ber of graves is therefore several times 796. The cemetery's record of burials',was lost in "a~ fire some years'ago, and thero.is now no complete list of burlalsr' STROKE FATAL FOR MRS, DAVID 111 ;TAU Mrs. David Rtstau, who suffered an appolectlc stroke last week Tuesday, died .Saturday,", morning. She had.for three years been afflicted with 'high blood pressure. Pneumonia followed the stroke. 'Short funeral. services were conducted at the home, here by the Rev. P, J. 'Braner, who also officiated at public services at the -local Evangelical Lutheran church. The church was too small to hold all the people who attended; Burial was made in the Lotts Creek Lutheran cemetery. Six grandsons served as pall- bearers. Mrs. Ristau, who was In her 72nd year,' was born December 2, IS60, at Ka'rlhof, West .Prussia. Wlren she was 22 she came to America, and for a time she lived near Geneseo, 111. On January 7, 1883, she was married to (Ludwig Wetzel at Rocfc Island. In 1889 they came from Coal" Valley, 111., to Lu-Verne, tat after three years there they moved to Union township, where Mr. Wetzel died in 1910. The widow tlreir moved to Algona, .where she was married to Mr. Ristau on March 11,. 1914. '.'•' By her fist husband Mrs. 'Ristau' had 11 children. Three died in Infancy, and a daughter, Mrs. Emma Ristau, died at Lu Verne last February. Surviving children .are:: William Wetzel, Mrs. Lena Potatz, Lotts Creek; Mrs. Elsie Bast, Mrs. Bertha Thlel, Algona; • Mrs. Clara Bender, Mrs. Anna Heller. Westgate; Mrs. Martha Geilenfeld, Lu Verne.

I next passed to a room of -French design. All walls hact tapestry, and there were dome ceilings. All of the furnishings in this room were Imported from Prance.

The room was real light, and all the paintings were of light tints. Sees Mirror 10 by 20 Feet. I, next visited the ballroom. The walls were paneled five feet from the floor in white marble. A huge white marble fireplace covered nearly one end. One wall mirror was about 10x20 feet in size. The floor was part marble and part Inlaid wood. Beautiful tapestry covered t;he walls. The celling was a huge dome. Suspended from the arch was a chandelier carrying hundreds of lights, and constructed of many minute cutglass crystals. The fixture itself would be too large to be carried on an average truck. On the floor was a huge seamless rug that i matched the tapestry of the walls. [ It was imported, and cost more than $186,000, and is now valued at a million dollars. Large marble tables along the walls held huge punch bowls. Many white marble pedestals hold life-size carvings of nude women. Space will not permit a description of the massive hallway, the many other rooms and the bedroom suite, which contained as many as 20 pieces of massive furniture. , No Two Booms Alike. In the entire house no two rooms are alike. The other rooms on the first floor were billiard and smoker, music, and art rooms, and a huge reception hall. One who has not seen the place will doubt that such a place exists. The history of the estate is unknown, for nearly all the family have moved abroad. The title to the estate has not bee'n settled because of the many inheritances of late years. I was shocked at the wealth displayed in this mansion. One really does not enjoy such a trip when he recalls the many needy and the depression. The present rightful owner la abroad buying new furnishings, etc. My "two-bit" vocabulary was exhausted. The place seemed like a dream. It is a place' unknown by the public, for it is kept strictly private, and only by sheer luck was I able to see it. I will neyer forget Jt A, N, STAGY PASSES AT ST. PAU^NIAY 26 Some weeks ago, news of the death of A. N. Stacy, former Algon- ian, was published, but at the time no obituary facts could be obtained. A few facts have now been learned. Mr. Stacy died at the home of his son Orrln at Chicago, following a four-year sickness with heart trouble. He had spent his last few months at Orrin's, and his death, took place May 26, burial being made at St. Paul. Mr. Stacy was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thos. D. Stacy, both now deceased. He was born on a farm two miles east of Algona' which for many years was known as the Stacy homestead. He grew up here, and In his early teens was employed at the postofflce when the late Col. R. H. Spencer was postmaster. Later Mr. Stacy moved to Du- buaue, where he was an office em- ploye of the Richardson Shoe factory. Ait Dubuque he was married to Florence Richardsen.
