Sacred Heart academy cagers of Port Dodge won a story book basket ball game from St. Cecelia's of Algona In the K. C. hall lost Friday winning 19 to 18 In three overtime periods. It was the closest and one of its best basket ball exhibitions Sacred Heart has competed in this season. The score was 14 to 14 at the end of the regular playing period, and at the beginnng of the flrst over time the count was unchanged. In the second extra period, Tierney scored for Sacred Heart and Kelly marked for Algona, raising the tic" a notch, 16 to 16. The third over time period finally broke the tie. Pinnell of Algona, tallied but a moment later Brown shot free throw and Kearney came through with a field goal, to put Sacred Heart out In front 19 to 18 at the gun. The crowd, tense throughout the regular playing periods, went wild during the overtime, as Coach Clare Powers' squad came through with the winning punch. The game was cleanly played with good guarding, nice floor work and close guarding. WVt the half Port Dodge was trailing 8 to 5. Kearney, with nine points, scored most for Port Dodge, though Brown and Kearney turned in v good performances. Kelly starred for Algona with twelve points.

WNU Service THE STORY CHAPTEH V.—Musla, Indignant over Vllinsky's Insult, vaguely feels herself defenseless. She has heard whispers of the "nationalization of women," and tremblingly wonders If she Is to be the first victim In Kazan. CHAPTER VI.—In conversation with Vladimir, Musla somewhat bitterly criticizes her brother Ilya's acceptance of the situation. She knows Vladimir Is a member of an organization work- Ing for the overthrow of the Bolshe- vlkl, and Ilya's attitude seems to her to be a cowardly one. Vladimir, contemptuous of Ilya's weakness, Inwardly agrees with her. (Continued from Last Wednesday.) "TiTiisTn "whs rousefl T>y Hie TlrenuTul turmoil and commotion; by the Incredible slamming of those old doors, never slnmmed hofore; by the trampling of men wearing heavy boots and carrying heavier weights; by mysterious crashes of furniture; 1 by the rough and strangely loud voices of the raiders, so out of keeping with the traditions of the quiet, dignified old mansion, and therefore all the more terrifying. But her terror did not arise from these things. All the abject fear which had overcome her at the visit of Vilinsky returned upon her. She finally summoned up the resolution to look out into the hall—she looked for him—or for Vladimir. She saw the Bolshevik! in their horrible garments, their filthy beards, their huge boots, and with tm;ir excited expressions, which to her seemed fiendish. They were unspeakably hideous to her; but as she saw some man other than Vlllnsky giving them orders, she actually felt a sense of relief. Musia took advantage of a moment when the way seemed clear, and hold- Ing her little blue kimono about her with trembling hands, she stole toward her mother's room. She paused at Ilya's door to see what was happening, and to look after hts welfare If there was anything she could do, and looking In, she saw her brother, dressed now, but negligently, under guard of the Lettish soldier, his room looking as if It had been ravaged by a tornado. . The Bolshevik!, as If a little awed -t>y the sudden .appearance of this young lady, drew back In an Instant's relapse Into respect. The Kronstadt sailor, their commander, however, looked boldly at her,,smiled, and putting Into his pocket a locket studded with diamonds, In which was the picture of a young girl—the writer, perhaps, of the packet of letters—came boldly toward Slusln. The others turned away as if disapproving of her very existence. Without accelerating her pace, but only gathering her kimono more closely about her as if to avoid contamination, Musla walked on to the door of her mother's room, with bent head Ignoring the intruders. The sailor looked after her a moment, took a step or so as If about to pursue, and turned to the more important matters of the raid. Musla looked jxdjnjrlngly at her _mother ,a_s CITY PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY. ATTORNEYS AT LAW T. P. Harrington L. J. Dickinson HARRINGTON & DICKINSON ATTORNEYS AT LAW Rooms 212-14 First Nat'l Bank Blk.

"We owe this," said she, without any preface ns Mnsln came In, "to that 'aristocrat' of whom Colonel Boyarsky told us." "To whom?" asked Musla, thinking this a very strange speech. "To that Loris! He slpned the papers Authorizing this rnl<l. Rut I feel stfro''—this In a whisper—"that It Is only a rnld. They.are not after Ilyn, or It would bo conducted differently! Some one wntild have told nrK" Musln wns not struck by tho fnct (lint tier mother hnil expressed no relief nt seeing her dnu.cliter coming Into her room wifo nfter nn hour or two of this Irrupllon Into the house of the llcensoless horde; that she did not thank Ond for deliverance of the most defenseless of her family from Insult or worse; or that her most exlircnt. thought wns for her son. It seemed the most natural thing In the world to one of Mrs. Krnssin's fnnilly; nnd, Indeed, Musla had not been, In fnet, conscious of personal peril from these men. When one bns dominated a dog nil his life, he does not nt first realize when he runs mad, that he will hlte, or that his bite Is venomous. She sadly suspected, that her mother might be mistaken as to her brother's safety, but she saw no reason for soylng so. She pressed her mother's hnnd nnd sat silent. "A moment ago," snld Mrs. Krnssln In a hnlf whisper, "I saw thnt brown- jWhlskered soldier who just looked in liere, pick up my diamond earrings, lie did not even look at them. In a second they disappeared Into his pocket. I didn't say a word—on account of Ilya!" Musla nodded agreement, nnd pressed her mother's hand to her bosom. The deluge Imcl swept away the barriers thnt hnd sepnrnted them. Musln's wnrtnth nnd expnnslvuness which had nlwnys seemed to repel her mother, because, perhaps, the older woman felt her lack of the temperament which ought to have responded to them, seemed to comfort Mrs. Krns- sln now. All nt once they understood ench other without words. Their perceptions were so keen thnt a glnnee, a pressure of the band, a half word was enough. "They took many other things, too," whispered Mrs.- Krnssln. "I saw, but I never said a word, nor seemed to see." "The mnln thing is Ilya I" Musin whispered bnck. Thus they sat for a long time, bent toward each other, tnlking In low tones ns the noise of the ravage receded from them to other portions of the house, uttering half plirnses, Mrs. Krnssln racked by unadmitted anxiety, ns to Ilya's safety. The guards were re-estnbllshed nt the door now, as Musin found when, at her mother's suggestion, she started to Investigate as to Ilya's whereabouts. Musla, sharing in her mother's nnxlety, drended the effect on her mother if the scene she had glimpsed through Ilya's door meant, as she believed, that her brother was In custody. Sometimes they .would : hear the tramp > of hejiyy l£ feet coming nearer, and Musla would cling to her mother with paling cheeks, while Mrs. Krnssln would sit straight, her head proudly thrown back, looking defiance at the doorway. A painter might make n picture of It. The steps would go on; the two women would • relax; they knew that it wns useless for them to try to Interfere. Mrs. Krassln expressed surprise that Musla hnd succeeded in getting through to. her mother's room; nnd Musia told her what a comfort it wns to her to be there. They agreed thnt for them to try to defend Ilya or argue for him would be worse than useless: It was best to remnin ns quiet na possible. * The raiding party became weary, after a while; for the Krassln house The Raiding Party Became Weary After a While. was very largo. The motor truck before the door became loaded with loot, leaving but a small space for the prisoner nnd his guards. Ilya, finally successful in putting on his clothes, was allowed to tnke with him a change of underwear, a toothbrush and a towel, but was forbidden a razor, nnd went forth out of the house under a strons guard. In the street the Hoi- shevikl delayed, wrangling as to the way in which the prisoner nnd Ills guard were to b e accommodated in the truck. Finally the Kronstadt suilor umde the hrowii-whlskorcd man and a suilor the personal guards of the prisoner, and placed the rest of the detachment at the four corners of the truck to guard tho "confiscated" property. This did not please the brown-whiskered man, who wanted to guard the loot; and a quarrel raged violently for n few minutes. Ilya did not hear It. He turned his poor white face toward the house. The windows looked dark; but lu one of them two palo bleak faces stared out at him, and he knew them for the faces of his mother and sister. The boy strained his eyes to see more distinctly his mother's face: it seemed to him tbn't it was ilenthly pale, with a wan quivering smile of enrourncr- ment upon It. His honrt felt ns II compressed In a vise, lie started for- wnrd ns If to spenk to her. ... A heavy hnnd dropped on his shoulder. "Into the cnr, Tovnrlsch Prisoner!" said n rough voice. Ilyn obediently stepped Into the truck—he had obeyed s\>me one nil the tlnys of his life. The qunrrel seemed settled. The brown-whiskered fellow smiled triumphantly ns, holding n rllle in tils hnnds, ho snt on n huixe h:\lf-oppn packing cnsp. From under the cover of this Improvised sent there sprend out under his feet a rich purple velvet po'.vn. The I nick rumbled slowly nwn.v— but even nhove Its ronr the raiders lienrd from the Krnssln house n piercing shriek us of one struck with tho npony of dentil. As In the dnys of Herod of old, "In llama wns there n voice lienrd, lamentation, nnd weeping, nnd great mourning, Hnchel weeping for her children." CHAPTER VIII A Strange and Valuable Piece of Goods As the dnys passed with Ilyo still hidden In the black cavern of Bolshevism Mrs. Krassln felt despair roll- Ing over her in groat waves—actual waves came upon her, In surges which began In her breast and swelled until the very ends of ber fingers tin glcd with the misery of It; nnd she would stnrt up with clenched hands like one In the extremity of despern tlon rising to meet some grisly foe In a battle to the very death. Once she forgot 'that she was not nlonc. mid summoning Sasha. the maid, nnkod for her cloak. She looked em barrtissied when Mnsln nskod If she were (,'olng out, and putting the cloak on went' Into the grounds nnd wan clcred about—a thins which slin never did. She walked nboiit mourning that she could not have Ilya with her Instead of Musio. Ilyn, she deceived herself Into snylntr, would find some way of liberating Musia If their places were reversed; hut Musia could do nothing. Nothing! She thought of what she herself would do If she could to suve her son from danger. If only Ilya had eonv mltted murder, so that she could take the crime upon herself; If she could only submit to some great humiliation to save him; If she could have her limbs torn off for him; If only the Bolshevlkl were simple savages who would ho satisfied with torturing some one, and she could go to the stake, or be dragged by wild horses for him. Jesus, she thought, was crucified for the world; but how glad would she be to go to the cross for one little fair- haired boy! Next day, ns Mrs. Krnssln walked about the room, she stopped beside Musia, who \vns reading a book of plays, and looked down attentively for a' long time at the blond head so prettily and studiously bent over her book. Musin was sweeter and more attractive than ever, she thought— and,' there were poets ' and other Writers who'spoke^f the great power of '"6eauty*l'ltwa8 beauty which one time launched a thousand ships and fired the topless towers of Ilium ; but what could her daughter's sweetness and beauty do In this time of awful need? A feeling of antagonism stirred In her heart at this helplessness, when anyone ought to he able to do something. Musla, on her part, looked up with her pitying smile, and thought how much her mother had nged. Her purplish mottled cheeks sagged more' than ever, and the skin of her throat hung loose over the lace. There was indecision, a thousand tormenting fears in Mrs. Krnssin's face. She was seeing a vision of Ilyn, led out to be shot against some blank wall. Her mind, usually clear nnd well balanced within its limitations, worked heavily at this one terrible thought. She stood for a Ipng time studying Musla as If she were some strange nnd valuable piece of goods; then her eyes looked past the girl Into vacancy. She seemed In a dream; but In that dream her will decided a conflict within itself; and when she returned to n consciousness of her surroundings, she had decided something which thus for she had confronted only vaguely. The plan she had adopted In this Imlf- trancc now looked so simple, so obvious, that she became Impatient to put It into execution nt'once: but when she spoke of It to her daughter she chose her words carefully and watched Musiu closely, ns if, for the first time, she was afraid the girl would refuse to assent to her mother's wish. "I think," said she very Impressively, "that I have come to a reasonable, an important, and a good decision. The longer we leave Ilya In prison the worse It Is sure to bo. The liol- shevikl are whimsical. They get new commanders every little while. This Lorls Is a man who can see our point of view, at least, from what the colonel says of him. The next to follow may be a madman. We must act immediately and enereoticallv." (To be Continued Next Week). Quick Lunch PLENTY TO EAT for 35c Good selection of meats.
