1 T The tipper Des Moinea-ftepublican, January 7,1031 Twenty Years Ago, The coldest morning for three years Iras recorded January 3 when the thermometer registered 26 below. Judge Quartan had returned from Colorado where he had spent three weeks visiting his son, Harold. Lucille Oarlon was to leave soon for Des Molnes to take up a course in nurses' training at the Mercy hospital. J. J.. Williams, manager of tiie Elk Pantatorium, had spent a week with his sisters and other friends in Bloom- Ington, Illinois. His little daughter had accompanied him. Conrad Rabe had sold his house on North Minnesota street to Mrs. Sarah M311er for $675. Mrs. Miller who had been living near the fair ground, planned to make the newly purchased property her home. Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Potter had been called to Oskaloosa by the news of the •erlous Illness of Mrs. Potter's mother. A line received later from the Potters stated tihat the sick woman's condition was very critical. Joe Mlsbach had won J. A. Lalng's fine $50 shot gun which the latter raffled off. Dolph Misbach won a hundred dollar fur coat in the same way •ome time previous, and it looked as though the Mlsbachs had all the luck. Mrs. T. P. Harrington and Mrs. Joe Misbach in behalf of the P. E. O.'s had given a very pleasant reception at the Harrington home to Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Robinson on the eve of their departure for their new home in Cedar Falls. Herman Hauberg, the popular head clerk in the Chrischilles & Herbst store had been enjoying a visit from, his brother, George Hauberg during the holiday season. George was at the time a medical student at the Northwestern University. Arthur Ferguson had entertained about ten couples of his associates at » dancing party held in the Win. K. Ferguson spacious homy. Watching the old year out and the new year in to the strains of bewitching music, was the feature of the evening. The Algona flre company had elected new officers for the coming year. A. P. Dailey was chosen, chief, Frank Hurt, first foreman, John Coon, second foreman, Win. Carlon, president, Irvtn Willson, secretory. The annual ball was to be held February 14. Wilfred P. Jones was planning to be at home after January 10. It was thought that It would take him until then to finish up his work as bank examiner. In his seven years of ser- Ylce as bank examiner, Mr. Jones left » record of the highest efficiency. It was not known at the time who his successor would be, and it was suggested that Algona should nofl let the office go without some effort to retain It. J. W. Wadsworh, E. E. Connor, H. E. Rist and I. E. Dodge were suggested as very competent men for the place as successors to Mr. Jones. The M. W. A. hall had been the acene of one of the most delightful social gatherings held in Algona in many • day. The entertainment was in •' charge of the December division of the ladies of the W. L. A. 8. It consisted of two parts, the first a delightful mu- program, Interspersed with readings and charades, and the second a most enjoyable dancing party in which about sixty couples took part. The ball was decorated in red and green and the Algona harp orchestra fur- nished the music from behind a bower of palms and holly wreaths. Among those who took part in the program were Daisy Laird, Lucille Carlon, Hazel Fellows, R. H. Quinby, the Misses Helse, and Cole and Mesdames Moe, Donahoo and Butler, Miss Moss of Des Moines, Robert Chrischilles of New York City, Mrs. Mae Palmer Forbes, Mrs. Dennis Goeders, Master Harold Osier, Miss Maud Coon and Miss Lucia Wallace. Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Jones and Mr. and Mrs. Howland Smith led the grand march. Mrs. Edith Bowyer Whlffen had gone to Sioux City for a visit with Mrs. George Call before returning to her home in Mexico City after a holiday visit with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Bowyer. From Sioux City Mrs. Whiffen was to go to New York, stopping enroute at Fort Dodge, Chicago, Annapolis and Washington, D. C. In New York she was to consult with her manager in regard to her next season's engagements. From there she sailed for Mexico stopped in Havana for a day. Mrs. Whlffen had had several engagements in Chicago that year as accompanist for noted singers, among them Madam Olitzka of the Metropolitan opera company. Just before coming to Algona she had made an extended tour through the southern states with Miss Virginia Llsteman. On the occasion of Mrs. Whffen's concert in Mexico with Madam Noris before the resident and visiting diplomats during the centennial she was presented with a diamond stludded solid gold watch by the Mexican government.

It sometimes takes a huge Iceberg a long time to break up; but when It does, woe to them who have vested Interests In Its .perpetuation. The Russian Iceberg was sure to break up when It was floated by the stream of time Into warmer waters. Before these noble families saw their danger, the flood of revolution was running so strong that there was no possibility of successful resistance to even Its worst excesses. They were done for before they knew It. As these people sat in their salon and talked so plaintively, though they did not know It, they were already on extinct class. They might talk to each other, but nobody else would listen to them. Their best qualities rendered them helpless. They were as a class Intelligent, highly educated, cultured; but having always been people of affairs, they were too practical, too reasonable, and at the same time too egotistical, to get n hearing while every one else was fervidly enthusiastic over the New Age which was dawning, carried away by false hopes and false confidence, or stark raving—all In a state of exaltation. So these nobles went about with the expression of people enduring much and defenseless. It jvas only recently that they had begun to conspire against what they could not openly resist; so that Lorls was sensible in saying that Ilya Kras- sln, being what he was by birth and training, was probably a conspirator. Young men of his class were dally slipping out of Kazan on foot, disguised in the uniforms of common soldiers, to join the anti-Bolshevist Cossack forces. And this was what Vladimir meant when he assured the old princess that such enormities as the loss of her live stock would not continue Ionic. This was what Colonel Boyarsky had in mind when he tried to talk to Mrs. Krassln of the consequences of the new life taken on by the Bolshevists under Lorls. And this was the darker issue which Mrs. Krassin avoided. She had a son. "There is something worse," said the colonel, "than the penury to which we are coming—to which we have arrived. Our llres, even now, are in danger." Mrs, Krassln half rose from the divan on which she always sat, and looked about at the company, with a little exclamation, as if she felt a physical pang. She looked at the two or three young men beside Vladimir, at three or four women, dependents of the family who were present, at a group out In the hull whom she could see through the door; and as she saw her daughter Musla entering, giving a smile to the company, and a hand to Vladimir, who bowed with a little clinking of his spurs, she dropped her Musla Entering, Giving a Smile to the. Company, and a Hand to Vladimir. voice as If to prevent the young girl from hearing. Mrs. Krussln's little cold brown eyes took on a look of terror. "I am so afraid," said she, "for my son Ilya 1" "But he is so free from blame," protested the princess, "even In the eyes of the Bolshevlkl—from blame of any kind, my dear." "Very true!" suld Vladimir. Mrs. Krassln darted a sharp glance at the young officer. Was there something sardonic in his speech? She suspected at first that there was: but as he resumed his seat nested down in a high chair, he looked so Innocent and smiled so pleasantly that her half-susuldon was disarmed. "Ilya," she stated, "hns shown good judgment, nnd he hns never mingled In politics; but yet 1 nm afraid for him. Tho.v will say among themselves thnt he hns been a former officer nnd belongs to one of the old Importnnt families. Tet, he hns always bren very careful." "Extremely cnreful," with thnt disarming smile. "If cnutlon will save him, he Is safe." "You know. Vlndlmir," said Mrs. Krnssln, turning her Imposing bond townrd Vlndlmir nnd honoring him with another scrutiny. "1 Mnve never approved of secret orgp.nlzntlnns. For Ihe first thing, you are too few." "Well." sold Vlndlmir lightly, "per- hnps so; but permit me to remind you thnt mnny grent things begin small. The Volga Is a brook In the government of Tver; and nothing, my denr nunt, Is In my opinion small which tnkes In the spirit of old Russia I" "It Is of course possible that you are right," admitted Mrs. Krnssin, with as much sarcasm nnd Impatience In her voice as It was proper to use under the circumstances, "—barely possible. Perhaps my mind Is unduly prejudiced against you young people and your Imprudent methods.!' "Prudence!" ejaculated Vladimir, with a note of passlonnte earnestness In his voice—very extreme In manner for the salon. "1'nrdon me I" "1 am an egotist," she went on, with n wave of excuse to Vladimir; "nnd also n mother. I don't want my son embroiled." Vladimir smilingly moved over by Musln, who sat engaged on sonic bit of work which she carried In her hand. Mrs. Krassin sat during n very long pause, with her head bowed—a long pause during which the princess fidgeted. She hnd something to say, hut did not wish to break In upon Mrs. Krassin's thoughts. They were winged thoughts, beating against the bnrs of the prison In which this revolution hnd Imprisoned her domineering soul. She wns thinking of Vladlmir's tone ns he spoke of Ilya's caution while he nnd these other boys were taking their lives In their hands every day. Oh. If she could ever get these canaille of the proletariat under her feetl Oh, for one hour's return of her old power! If once such men as Vladimir could win I And then her caution returned. "Nevertheless," she said, "I am afraid they will arrest him just because he has been an officer and has done his duty as such. We must be diplomatic!" "You may not know," exclaimed the little old princess, taking advantage of the pause which followed this, "that they took all the table linen of my grand-niece, Nina—and what do you suppose they wanted It for?" "Perhaps for table linen," suggested Vladimir. "No—nothing of the sort! They wanted it for a trousseau. The bride, a washerwoman, wns marrying a high Bolshevik olllcial. And such people to take away my horses and cow I" Vladimir laughed aloud. "Pretty good, pretty good!" said he. Mrs. Krassln looked at him rather fixedly, and saw a blond Slavonic hea_dj_sllghtlj^curled hair; kindly blue eyes; smiling, dare-devil face. She looked awuy suddenly for fear that n guest might catch the disapprobation in her regard. "Where are our old good manners?" she asked of herself, more displeased with Vladimir now than for his hints at Ilyn. "Laughing aloud In that rude way!" As the princess went on to assure him that he wouldn't laugh If he were in Nina's place, Mrs. Krassln changed the subject. "Have you seen this Lorls?" "Not I," said Vladimir. "I am seeking to be as little In evidence as possible ns far as he Is concerned. 1 ' "Oh, yes," said the colonel, "I have seen him. He has an Interesting appearance—an aristocratic look. The rest of his gong look like his valets. People are talking about him and wondering ns to his origin." "Looks like an aristocrat?" Mrs. Krassln repeated the words as If she thought them Important. "I don't suppose that Loris Is his real name. I wonder of what nationality—does the name Lorls mean anything, I wonder?" "Mny be an Armenian," suggested Vladimir, "though of course the name isn't Armenian," "Neither Goes he look like one," said the colonel. "They bear pseudonyms," said Mrs. Krassln, "like the actors they are." "What an American friend of mine," said a young man near the door, "would call had actors." The company did not understand this American slang well enough to give It more than the smile called for by politeness. "Some people," said the colonel, ns If telling n secret, "think that Loris Is not a Bolshevist nt all, but an agent provocateur." "One hears everything," said Vlndl- mir. "I would suggest, however, that the time hns gone by when the Bol- shevlkl need any further provocation." ' "An old friend of mine," put In the old princess, "saw him—Loris—as he passed In his motor car. I want to tell you about It. He gives me his word thnt he saw this Loris long before the revolution, and that he went by a different name, but he couldn't think of the name, nnd he believes he was n prince! What do you think of that?" Vladimir laughed ns If In enjoyment of some great joke. These speculations arid surmises seemed to amuse him vastly. "He might be a Georgian or a Cir- cassian," said the colonel, "or some of those peoples." "Oh, In that case," snld Vladimir, "he Is In all probability u prince. I served In the Caucasus, and I give you my word one dared not throw a stone Into u crowd for fear of hitting a prince I" "Ridiculous I" said the princess. "•"Veryl" replied Vladimir. "I thought so at the time." "I do not think this matter of Lorls' origin so unimportant," said Mrs. Krassln. "But, prince or not, I shall keep my movables packed. I never wear my diamond earrings any more. I prefer to be on the safe Bide." (To be Continued Next Week). FARM SALES Farmers who arc contemplating having a farm sale in the near future will be given all of the assistance possible in advertising their sale if they will call up the Upper Des Moincs-Hcpublican at Algona, or pay a personal call to this office. All they will have to do is to write out a list of the property to be sold, together with the date, location, terms, and the name of the auctioneer and clerk and we will arrange the matter for publication in the paper and for sale bills. The ordinary sale ad is a quarter of a page, and bills may be printed from the same type used in the ad in cases where the cost of advertising has to be held down. Otherwise a large sale bill may be used, which of course would be a little more expensive. The Upper DCS Moines-Republican has splendid correspondents in all parts of Kossuth county and covers the county thoroughly with a big list of subscribers who arc interested in auction sales, and do not hesitate to drive twenty-five miles to attend a sale in case any property they are interested in is advertised. Every single bidder brought to a sale by advertising pays big returns on the cost of the ad.
