The Upper Des Moines-Republican, January 28, 1931 Twenty Years Ago. Amle Peugnet was helping the committee check up the county's books. Mr. and Mrs. K. A. Wolrott hnd gone to Shpron, Wisconsin, to help celebrate 'he eolden wedding anniversary oC Mr. Wolcott's parents. Mrs. Sam French had entertained a number of friends at a card party in honor of her .guest.. Mrs. J. E. Branch of Aberdeen. South Dakota. The young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bert. Ornnan had fallen while playing at the third ward school building and fractured her left arm at the elbow. E. P. Fuller had Just gone to California to Join his wife and daughters who went out. there in November. The Puller family planned to return to Algona in the spring. Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Paxson, Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Peterson and Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Nlerllng had cards out for two five hundred parties. The gatherings were to be held at the Piixson home. Elmer Hartshorn who had been at Perry for a time, had returned to Algona and was back at his old post in the Norton barber shop. He had moved into the house just vacated by Sheriff Brunson. Mrs. Roscoe Call and Mrs. L. J. Dickinson had entertained a large number of their friends at a sewing party at the spacious Call home. Later in the week they were to entertain with their husbands at five hundred. Mr. nnd Mrs. Abner Long were rejoicing over the birth of a handsome baby daughter who arrived January 20. She was the first child and as Abner said, "arrived just in time for dinner." The Longs' many friends were extending congratulations. One of the twin boys of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wilson about two years of age had suffered a severe accident when a joint of the stove pipe fell, the rim striking the child's little finger, nearly severing it from the hand. Prompt and efficient mrericnl attention by Dr. Fellows was all that saved the child's finger. Dr. E. C. Hartman had gone to Brod head, Wisconsin, where he was married to Miss Faith Stair at the bride's home. About thirty immediate friends and relatives were guests at the wedding. The Hartman's were expected in Algona in a few days, and were to begin housekeeping at the Will F. Walker home where they had secured living accommodations for the time. The Algona Brick & Tile Works were in a prosperous condition and at the annual meeting had declared a ten per cent dividend and re-elected the old officers.! A substantial surplus had gone to pay for the big new drying shed that had been erected. C. R. Madson was manager of the plant. The Brick & Tile Works was at the time considered one of the most substantial manufacturing industries in Algona. It is now a thing of the past. Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Chrischilles had Just departed from Algona for their Mediterranean cruise. Their Algona friends flocked to their home the day of their departure in such number to bid them good bye that it partook of the nature of a public farewell reception. Mr. and Mrs. Chrischilles were cited as Algona's most distinguished travelers, having made numerous trips to the Old World and to Mexico. Their itinerary this time was planned to include a trip in Egypt and up the Nile, the Holy Land, Austria, Italy and Germany. They planned to be gone about six months.

She find flrj from her Kusslnn home on foot, hnd wnlkeil for weeks, n vn grant, shelterless, often fooclless; hnd caught rides on Siberian j rnllwny trains, stowed away in freight cnrs. or perching on their roofs—from a Sybarite to n tramp! She had become n nnrse for Kolt- clink's army, amid the most horrible conditions of Incl; of supplies, organization nnd skilled personnel—and n mortality which was terrible. She hnd gone ragged nnd dirty, and for weeks had not hnd even n change of underclothing. Her clothes fell away bit hy bit. As her stockings wore off at the toes, she cut them off and sewed them up until they were gone— nnd a fellow refugee asked her, after n glimpse below her skirts, where she hnd obtained her nice, white stock- Ings; and wns thrown n bit of American slang derived from Hed Cross workers in the information that they were her birthday hose. She had worked for the American Red Cross as Interpreter, typist, clerk and translator; for she knew Russian, Polish, French and Italian as well as English, and she could coax wonderful music from the tuneless piano In the Red Cross barracks in Vladivostok. She had lost father, mother, brothers, sister and fiancee, nnd was now, in what was left of nn old ball dress, dancing'obsorbedly to the Jazz music of an American warship's band In the long hall in the barracks.

"Well," said she, smiling tip at htm, "one can't be always weeping!" So It wns with the Krasslns: they had alrpndy acquired the resiliency of those who walk dally In perll~;~-flnd nfter "the terror hy night" had passed them, nnd their little group hnd gnth- pred as ustinl under Mrs, Krnssln, their general, they were In rnther better spirits thnn usual. A peril hnd passed them hy. They hnd not been notified to quit their house. Another day hnd come. Mrs. Krnssln especially wns in H cheerful frnme of mind; for Vlndlmlr hnd nsked for Vladimir Had Asked for Musla, and Had Gone to Her. Musia, and had gone to her where she sat surrounded by her peculiar household gods, In n room which was half a study, half a sitting room, the central feature of which was a great plnno, with hnrp nnd gultnr nt hand, and statues, engravings nnd rnre por- celnlns scnttered about. The selection nnd arrangement spoke of a craving for variety and a restless mind. Mrs. Krassln had decided long ago, when Musia and" Vladimir were children, that the two distant cousins were to be married. Both families cherished the wish for the alliance. Mrs. Krassln had never talked to Musla about this, thinking it better to endeavor by Indirect nnd Invisible means to bring the event about, so that it would seem to happen In the nntural course of things. For a year or so past, she had begun to feel n sense of dlsnppolntment and Irritation because these plans were so slow In coming to fruition; but she looked upon n talk with Musla as a last resort. She had a feeling that she might encounter in her daughter something tending toward rebellion; and saying to herself, "You never can tell beforehand _how things will turn out with Musla," she declined to put the affair to the test of au issue, like the cautious diplomat which she prided .herself upon being. "The revolution Is to blame," sold she one day to the little princess. "Girls are not what they used to be. The restraints are gone which used to hold young people In the proper course and make real people of them." In her heart she felt that It would be a relief to see Musla married. Even after the affectionate passage of last night, the old feeling came over her that her daughter was something of a burden. She would be much freer to move about, In war or pence, If Musla were disposed of in the traditional way. She was conscious of this feel- Ing when Vladimir had asked for Musla that day. She blamed both of them for dllatorlness—in which she was quite right. They were equally vaclllatory. "Chances to get well married," said she to the little old cousin, "do not come to any girl every day. One or two real matches In her whole life— that's usually about nil. The rest of them nre not worth while. The thing Is, to be clever, nnd not let the good chances go by. I'm sure^MusIa never thinks of this. Chances scarcely ever return!" .She sighed bitterly. Her good chances, she reflected, had been nl- lowed to go by. In truth, however, she hod little to blame herself for. She had taken advantage of her only offer; but what matron of her age Is willing to confess so much, even to herself? She could think of several occasions in her life when she thought as she looked hack upon events, just a little more appreciation on her part of the good qualities of certain gentlemen would have changed things fundamentally for herself. Alone with Musla, Vladimir was quite a different person than when in the formidable presence of Mrs. Kras- sln ; for he sat or almost lay In a comfortable armchair, his long legs extended and wide apart, watching Musla with the superiority, the manner air of of amused bon enfant DENTISTS DR.

Phone 133. which was characteristic of him, and which in fact, was affected by most officers of his class. He was a great friend of every one he met. The old ladies of his circle, to whom he always paid court In his mocking way, and whom he teased by tolling them of tho eiiormllies he was about to commit, like joining tho Bolshevlkl, were a unit In appraising him as one of the nicest, most open-hearted boys In tho world. Perhaps Mrs. Krussin was tin.' only one of them who would have been glad to suggest some possible changes In his behavior. "I am very sorry," said Muslu, "that mother Is opposed to llya's Joining your organization." "\Vlmi organization?" Inquired Vladimir, with a surprised air. "As if you did not know! I think It Is his duly—positively !" In case of a girl more than anyone else, tho manner of saying things la much more important than the matter. Whatever Musla suld was uttered ID a soft voice which made one wish to hear more; with the Boft voice went a pleasant, Ingratiating manner; aud If she. only said, that it. wag n there was an air of suppressed enthusiasm in her Intonation thnt would hnve been valuable to n pleader. II made Vlndlmlr think of the difference between this little elrl nnd her brother. "Duty 1" he scoffed playfuUy. "Where did you pick up thnt old word?'' "He's young and strong. He Is nn officer. Who will fight for Russia If he will not?'' "Rnttlebrnlns like me, perhaps." "His friends are In danger. We do not know how great the danger. Tint neither do we know of the danger 1n lying perdu as Ilyn does. I should take the honorable course without try- Ing to calculate the percentage of dnnger on the two sides I" There wns something more thnn n habit of speech In her manner as she snld this; her fnce plowed with en tlnislnsm. Vladimir found his admiration stirring his heart a little more thnn usual. "I see you read Shakespeare," said he, picking up a volume. "Do you remember the line which goes 'Out of this nettle, dnnger, we pluck this flower, safety'? Well, for Ilya ns well ns for me, I think the bold course the wise one ns well. As to the mntter of honor, ench must be his own Judge." "Mither Insists that It Is wiser, safer, nnd In all wnys better," said Musln, ."for him to sit and wait until the storm blows over." "This storm did not blow up," replied Vladimir. "It was blown up. It will not blow over. It will have to be blown over." "How sententious you are!" Musla was laughing at him now. But she flared up In soft Indignation again. "I think It Is a shame to the fnmlly. See how other mothers encourage their sons to fight, nnd nre proud of them ]" "Your mother Is a wise woman, Musla." "I don't say anything at nil to Ilyn," went on Musin. "But when I think of nnd see these bensts of Bolshevlkl—" She stopped, blushing In a little confusion. Vlndimlr stnred nt her, surprised nt her strange embnrrossment— "I feel as If I ought to protest ns strongly ns I enn. And then—I think of llya's safety. He ought to know better h'.mself. 1 wish I were In his boots I" "I think," suggested Vladimir, "that your mother is not really keeping Ilyn back. No one could stop him if he really wanted to—to do what you would do 'If you were in his boots.' I think, my dear, that he has no taste for that sort of thing." To this Musla had no reply; and she sat for a long time looking oft into the distance. This pleased Vladimir, for this morning he was more than was usunlly the case Inclined to waive nil discussion, to which she was rather prone, nnd to sit with her and look nt her. Perhaps she felt this and was willing to give him the opportunity. His "my dear" was a little advance on his part; though their rela- tlons were based on a long-standing comradeship occasionally taking the form of light flirtation. Their feelings toward each other were of the sort likely to be developed between a pretty girl and a young man thrown constantly together in the narrow circle of a provincial city; but lately they both felt in them a warmer current approaching love. * She rose and sToocT against the black polish of the great piano. There was something Insubstantial and dreamy, he thought, about her eyes, about the delicacy of her hands nnd feet, something, In all the perils of the situation which surrounded all of them, very pathetic and appealing. "So much the worse," said she finally, "If he has no taste for his duty!" Vladimir wns too much engrossed In the study of the straw-colored wisps of her hair about her forehead, and her cheeks flushed with high enthusiasm, to make any reply. "She Is the only girl for mel" He found himself saying this to himself; and then smiled at his own sentimentallsm. Was this a time for philandering? Why tonight, perhaps, he would be skulking through the country like a hunted wolf toward the Cossack front, with the hounds of Lorls In full cry behind. Musla felt this cross-current of feeling like a chill. Yet, he thought again, why not take the sweet with the bitter? In another month they might both be dead—or triumphant. And Musla felt this counter-current In his thoughts like a warm south breeze. "I wish I were a man!" she exclaimed vehemently. "What a sacrilege!" said Vladimir, touching her lightly with his hand. "As well wish this lovely vase a kettje!' (To be Continued Next Week). Rupture EXPERT HERE C. F. Redlich, Minneapolis, Minn., will demonstrate without charge his unequalled method in ALGONA, MONDAY, FEB. 2 at the Algona Hotel from ten a. m. to four p. m. Mr. C. F. Redlich says: The "Perfection Retention Shields' hold the rupture perfectly, no matter what position the body assumes or how heavy a weight you lift. They give instant relief and contract the opening in a remarkably short time. The secret of their success is in their simplicity. An expertly adjusted device seals the opening without discomfort ' or detention from work. It Is practically everlasting, sanitary, comfortable and actually holds ruptures which heretofore were considered uncontrollable. Stomach troubles, backache and constipation nearly always a consequence of rupture, promptly disappear. Bring your children. According to statistics 95 per cent recover by our method.
