The Upper Des Moines-Republican, January 14, 1931 *f m> •* f,f •*-•*_•*.•*JTJ We Have Changed All That By Herbert Quick and Elena Stepanoff Mac Mahon Copyright by Th» Bobbs-Merrlll Co. WNU Service L JHE STORY CHAPTER I.—In the ancient Russian •It* of Kazan, under Soviet rule. Cont•Issar Vilinsky 1 * Investigating squad fcrades the palatial home of the Kras•In family, aristocrats, with the •rowed purpose of determining wheth- a* the government shall requisition the louse. Vlllnsky Insults Musla, youth* tol daughter of the Krasslns, In the •resence of her mother, who Is power- lfe*a to act In her defense. V CHAPTER II. — Commissar Lorli. head of the government In Kazan, It urged to confiscate the Krassln home jor the service of the people. The fam- 1 •y consists of "former Judge Krassln, Mrs. Krassln, a son, Ilya, formerly a •uards' ofllcer, and Musla. LorlH prom- he* to Investigate. fContinued from Last Wednesday.) ~ "Where there Is a safe side," said. Ylndimlr. There seemed to be nothing more to talk about, even for Idle people; and •ere was nothing but Idleness left lor the Sitters In the Salon, save for Itoese new plots and conspiracies. The midday sun played on the old fcrnlture—on porcelains, bronzefc. keavy silks, and on the carpet woven fc Little Russia by the work of n generation of women on one piece of tradespeople, nor mean, nor Yiilgnr, nor commonplace. Sot now they we're all called bourgeoisie—all above the proletariat. Or below them: for there were some who saw the old prophecy coming to frultiont when "every valley shrill be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low," but If also it meant that "the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain'," which part of the prophet's message was rather lost sight/ of, Tovnrisch Vilinsky was certainly a strange agent for the world's rectifl- cntion; "Yes. Tovnrisch," replied the Clerk very respectfully, "that Is the Krassln house." "Turn back!" commanded Vilinsky"I wartt to take a look at that house, and at the people In Itl I may need that house) and I should like to see how this band of bloodsuckers live." A maid heard the sharp and Impatient ring of the bell and made breathless speed to open the door—and stared In amazement at this man In the peasant's smock with his peasant followers standing before her. "do to the back door," she con- manded. "This Is not for such as you 1" Her Indignation turned to amazement when Vlllnsky and his men, pay- Ing not the slightest attention to her reprimand, pushed by her Into the hall, throwing the door wide open, and walked calmly in. down the hall and through rooms, looking at everything with sneering curiosity, befouling the rugs and floors With dirt from the streets, fingering precious things, like n party of barbarians strolling through A palace of ancient Rome. Nobody Sought to prevent them. Vladiniir and the other young men wort ttowhere In sight. Ilya Krassln was In his rooms. The Invaders were Yiot asked why they came. The house was In paralysis. They on thel;? part asked no questions and sought no directions. They paid no attention to any of the stupefied Inmates of the house. They were calm, curious, Impudent, like tourists strolling without understanding through the cathedral "Tovarisch Vilinsky," snld the clerk, 'will chouse whnt IIP net-ils. You can then take nwny what Is left—if there Is anything." "But," Mrs. Krassin began to protest. "Bull" shouted Vlllnsky in mimicry. "Enough of you! Bloodthirsty parasite! Tou have lived—lived while better people have been starving—or In prison I Now Is our time to live, and to choose. I have no time to argue with you!" "If you are to pot out," went on the clerk, "you will receive an order." "Our house registry hook," snld Mrs. Krassln In her most diplomatic tone, "has just been returned from the milllln. I request you to look nt It, so that you may see how many people are living In this house nt the present time," "It's not worth while," snapped Vlilnsky with nn impatient motion. "My time Is too precious. Now, this room," addressing the clerk, ".put down as my private office. And this—but this Is a room we have seen before. Who can show us this house, so we may not lose time by getting lost our selves?" "I shall be glad to show you," said Mrs. Krassln, still diplomatic, and with all her hostess' dignity. Vilinsky looked nt her with something like amusement. "Lead on," said he with large Jocularity. "Maybe we'll keep you on »8 housekeeper, I should like that!" (To be Continued Next Week).

It flickered on the carved ma- logany doors, on the gilt of the frames •f engravings and paintings. It was a picture of Old Russia—this group of people In, their heavy chairs, atemlngly fixed In their surroundings •ad Inseparable from them: the last touch upon a great canvas now fin- fehed; or a dissolving view of n great historic object hoary with age and touched with the pathos of decay. *K\e visitors one by one went away. Mrs. Krassln parted with them with tollte Inquiries about friends and Mlattves, and gave to 'each her pleas- •ntest smile—a slightly wooden smile II was, which she had standardized •or use on all such occasions. "Where Is Musla?" said Vladimir, M he looked about before wlthdraw- fcg. "She was here a moment ago." "Musla?" replied Mrs. Krassln. "One never can tell where she Is. As •ne's children grow up, they some- «mes seem strange to one. I think ~~Se~revoTutIon has changed our yoUHg" feople." "Youth always looks extravagant to the preceding generation," said the •olonel, as he prepared to go out with the princess. "To look so Is Musla's privilege—and her greatest charm." The group, over whom hung Impending doom, had broken up. Mrs. Krassln still sat on her divan alone, wondering why she and her daughter were not closer to each other. Nothing had happened between them. She fcnd not even pressed the project of Musla's marriage with Vladimir, which bad for years been tacitly arranged, and which, Mrs. Krassln felt, ought to take place now. It would permit her to devote herself to the task of pilot- Ing Ilya through this time of peril with greater singleness of purpose. And while she so mused, Ilya himself rushed Into the room. "Mother," he cried pantlngly. "1 have been Insulted! I have been robbed! A Bolshevik beast In a peasant's smock took my motor car! I will not endure It!" Mrs. Krassln's eyes were cold no longer—they were filled with the fierce tenderness of a tigress whose eub is In peril. She rushed to him and threw her arms about his neck. "You must be calm, my darling, Bald she soothingly. "You must not Indulge In revenge. We must be diplomatic!" "But I have boon questioned Hue a Moujlk by this trnltor! I have had to skulk through the streets on foot— and I was followed—me an officer or the Guards! And 1 know who the miscreant Is. Ho Is that fellow who was a thieving steward on our estate, and who went to prison; and—' Ilya threw off his mother's embrace and turned to the window. He was weeping with humiliation, and trem- Ulng as with fright. He did not wish lor Ills mother to see him In this condition, and moved toward the door. "And did this man," said Mrs. Kras«in, "-what name did they call him ~~"They called him Vlllnsky—Tova- risen VUlnsUy-wlmt difference does it City Pays Dec. Bills. of some alien and despised faith. Even Mrs. Krnssln, sitting In state on her divan and gazing on them In Indecision, perplexity and fear, at tracted no more attention than a sin gle sharp glance from Vlllnsky, as If he were wondering whether or not he were recognized. He took his stand In the middle of the room, feet wide hands on his hips. He Inspected the premises like a buyer at an auction or a prospective tenant looking the place over critically. And as he walked about, the little clerk followed with a portfolio and notebook, trotting about his master first on one side and then on the other, like a little dog likely to run between Vlllnsky's legs and be rebuked or struck for it, his I back bent In servility. They talked about the room; Vlllnsky pointed to windows with the remark that the rtalns were too dark. ['This room will do for the reception room," said he. "But It will have jo be altered according to your notes. And have more mirrors. I like mirrors—and those other things I told you about—have you the memoranda?" This conversation did not sound like the talk Mrs. Krassin had expected from a man In a peasant's blouse; but on second glance, the man did not look like a peasant. It was a perceptible lensth of time before she was Impressed with the sense of Insult and degradation which swept over her at their Insolence; and then her face flushed, and her hands clenched.
