Boys Were Caught by State Agent Quintan. The tapper Des Moines-ltepublican, March 26, 1931 Sheriff L. E. Hovey recently received a letter from State Agent Jesse Quinlan containing the records of three young boys who were experts at (Stealing cars. These boys were all from Ruthven and stole cars in Fort Dodge, Emmetsburg, Mallard, Algona attd Ruthven. In fact they stole nine Cars within the space of two months.

When he attempts to embrace her she snatches a sword from the wall, but he disarms her, though gently. Then he convinces the horrified girl of her mother's unnatural Idea of sacrlrtclng the daughter's honor for the son's life, tells her he has no power to release Ilya but will do what he can, and dismisses her, her beauty nnd bravery having made a deep Impression on him. CHAPTER XI.—The two women walk home, Musla with a natural feeling of aversion for her mother. Mrs. Kras- sln, still determined Musla shall make the sacrifice she demands, attempts, without talking to her, to Induce her to accept Liorls' attentions, convinced the commissar will save Ilya If she does so, and the girl feels she can no longer live under the same roof with her mother. CHAPTER XII.—Musla resolves to make a last piteous appeal to Lorls, and goes to see him. Ho tells her he has no news of her brother. Then he apologizes for his unworthy Idea that she had been a party to her mother's plotting, and tells her he loves her Dazed, but not Indignant, the girl Is unable to answer him, and he pleads with her to let him take her with him away from Kazan. Then realizing the turmoil of her thoughts he allows her to go, declaring he will be waiting for her until she "comes again." 'Continued from Last Wednesday.) Musla did not move or protest or make reply. "I want to help your brother," he went on. "1 wanted to help him fiom the time of the first glimpse I ever had of you, darling I But the prisoners are not under my control. They are In the hands of the sailors—and the sailors suspect me and spy upon me.

Broke Into House. On the night of February 23, Merle Counley broke into the Slater house house in Ruthven Just south of the new high school, now occupied by the McEvoy Sisters and there stole several articles, then broke into the garage and stole their automobile, driving It to Mallard, leaving it and stealing a car 'belonging to Tom Conway, driving this car to Havelock, leaving it and stealing a 1930 model Chevrolet coach belonging to Dr. Hunter and drove it to Fort Dodge and abandoned it there This car 'has not been recovered to date. On the night of March 7 Leo Counley and Loral Paulson rode a freight train to Algona, there stealing a Chevrolet car "belonging to Henry Wagner, and drove it to Port Dodge where they stole gasoline from a Model T Ford belonging to Elmer O. Fitch, also the number plates off his car (94-767-1931) and a pair of large pliers also a large box of cookies and an Indian blanket from another car. .They then drove the Wagner car to a point about four males ncfrtheost of Ruthven where they abandoned it. having -thrown Mr. Wagner's numbers away and re- He paused for a gesture, or a tremor had Softly he of her body heard, but none came. plensantest, but Mnsla noticed how white hef half was becoming. The subjects upon which they could converse were curiously limited. Musla did not Speak unless speech were Imperatively called for. and the lead In conversation fell to her mother; and Mrs. Krassln could not speak of Ilya, since thnt approached a matter upon which She nnd Musla could not with propriety enRnpe In conversation. "How queer she Is I 1 ' thought Musln. She had at tlmps felt n strong dislike and almost an enmity toward her mothpr; hut this wns the most disrespectful expression which sho hnd ever permitted to enter her thoughts concerning her; for Musin, too, wns a crenture of the conventions of her circle. Rut. curiously enough, she gave to her mother very little attention or thought. Her mind kept recurring to Lorls; whom every moment she told herself she desired of all persons most to forget. ForgettlnR seemed simple, at first, If It were not for Ilya. It was like tearing from n bonk a page filled with low. disgusting, dishonorable things; hut her mind kept returning to matters connected with Lorls, with which llyn's deliverance had nothing to do, 'In spite of her mother's constant strrnm of talk. She heard over and over every | word he had said to her, saw every gesture, felt every touch—and the blood rushed to her cheeks. Mrs. Krassln. who was watching her every change of expression, saw the blush and looked away. She did pot know that the cause of the blush was Musla's Inward embarrassment by the fnct that even In the humiliation to which she had been subjected she found a certain pleasure. She liked to remember the pressure of Lorls 1 arm about her waist, the vibrant tones of his voice as he pleaded for her love, the touch of his lips to hers, the fact that he Jiad mastered her. The little Princess Kha- borovskaya came In, bubbling over with news, before their Into breakfast was over, and Musla, not caring to listen to her, excused herself and went out of the room. "My dear cousin," the princess exclaimed ns soon as Musla had gone, "the Bolshevlkl have finally gone beyond their limit—even their limit. I am sure this will bring them to the end of their rope." "What Is the new trouble?" asked Mrs. Krassln politely. "I thought they had committed every Imaginable atrocity long ago. Is there anything new?" "Well," said the princess, "I could not, of course, mention this before ; but In the province of the hostess herself. She wns calm and more cheerful than she had been since tlya's Imprisonment When Col- ohel Boyarsky came In she greeted him cordially, but did not oa had been her custom, ask him for news of tlya, though he had been her chief Intelligence officer In the pnst. Now she led In the ranking of forecasts, und they were all optimistic. She repeated to the colonel what she had only a dny or so before told her cousin the princess: thnt slie hnd every reason for believing that llyn, by reason of Influence exerted In his favor in quarters which she could not disclose, would vary soon be liberated. It tvns only a matter of n very brief time, slie felt sure, tt might'be today, even. The colonel wns downcast nnd gloomy. He mnde several attempts to sny something to Mrs. Krnssln, but as If In self-defense, she Interrupted nnd led the conversation off on lines more cheerful tlmn she doped to hear from one looking so depressed. Her son wns Innocent. Not even the Bolshe- vlkl would do such n thing as to punish him—nnd even the Dolshevlkl were susceptible to Influence. The colonel whispered to the princess, who grew pale as she looked at her infatuated cousin. "I have received certain Information about Ilya," snld he at last In n voice which should have warned Mrs. Krassin. "The Bolshevlkl look upon his case very seriously. I am nfrald the end is not certain to be as favorable as you seem to think." A hush settled over tlie company; the princess knew; the rest understood. "He may be sentenced." the colonel went on, "to a severe punishment; to many years In prison." "I do not think so," said Mrs. Krassin, with her most superior smile. "I may confide In you that I Imvc the best of reasons for thinking that this Commissar Lorls Is not so bloodthirsty as we have been accustomed to believe, and that he Is Interesting himself In Ilya's cnse. If so, nnd I do not think I misjudge the situation, thnt would seem the decisive factor." There was deep pity !n the colonel's face as lie gazed upon her during this speech; and when she had ended he looked about at the others as if for aid in discharging his unpleasant task..

To Be Arraigned. Merle Counley was returned to Minneapolis, March 20 by Sheriff Shea and State Agent Jesse Quinlan. He was paroled from the Boys' Training School at Eldora last September. He has confessed to these jobs and will be returned to the reform school immediately. Leo Counley and Loral Paulson were arrested at their homes March 19 by Shea and Qutnlan at Rutnvfen.

Never to see her again I It seemed thnt unless he could see her every hour it would be Impossible to live. And yet two hours would measure all the time he had ever passed In her presence. "I love you," said he once more, stooping over her, looking Into her eyes, asking, beseeching, solicitous not to lose one instant of this precious time. "As long as they will let me, I shall be waiting for you here every moment. You will come? Will you?" She slipped past him and passed from the car without a word. When morning broke, Lorls was still sitting there on the divan. CHAPTER XIII When "Influence" Failed Mrs. Krassln rose next morning her usual self, presiding with no explanation as to her recent absence, over the Russian breakfast of coffee and bread and butter—which as yet In the Kras- sln -household did not lack the old multiplicity of tasty appetizers distributed about the table. She .now felt a lofty sense of victory In that her prayers, her schemes, her vigils and her labors had provided for Ilya's liberation; and already her eyes were shut as to the price which she felt had been paid. That wns something which must be burled In oblivion among those darker things which she accepted as a part of the life of every family and every : fion. Merle Counley, John Ort and Russell Garrett, all living at Fort Dodge, wer sent to the Boys' Training School a Eldora in the spring of 1929 for robb [ing stores, stealing guns, fishing tack;le, watches, money and so forth.

Mrs. gjanshan leaves to mourn her hus- ipnd, W. G. Blanshan of Britt; one fon, Mtlo of Forest City; five daughters, Mrs. Mabel Thomjpspn, Mrs. ieulah Arnold, both of LuVerne, Mrs. dice Dillon and Mrs. Esther Loomer, ptn of Manly and Mrs. Lavina An- erspn of Britt. besides many other jlatives and friends. FuneraJ ser-i were held Friday afternoon at Methodist church at Britt, in »rge of the pastor, Rev. Eggleston, _ 8 interment was made in the Britt Imetery. Mr. and Mrs. Blanshan liv- for many years in an4 around Lu- yne, moving to Britt last summer. person. There was the necessity for the mental denial thnt anything had ever or would ever happen—that was ail. She knew of Musia's movements, and of her appearance when she hod returned. She would not allow herself to recognize the propriety of feeling sorry. She looked over the silver and crystal service still preserved to them, with her old Interest, and directed the movements of the servants with her uimal calm authority. God was In his Heaven; all was well with the world; Ilya was safe! Musla had not expected to see her mother at breakfast, and paused when she saw her as If to return to her room, so averse was she to her society; but nn Impulse Impelled her to enter and take her usual seat, which she did with n cool nod to her mother instead of the usual kiss on the cheek. She would show thnt she could still Innocently look anyone In the face, she thought. She did not suspect thnt her mother knew of her movements last evening; and she was Incapable of realizing the thoughts in Mrs. Krassin's mind In any case, since she could not conceive that her mother could bo- "leve what was In tlie older woman's mind. Mrs. Krassln was talkative, In the manner of one who keeps up a rapid conversation to gloss over some un- ileasant occurrence. In comparison With her reseat grief ajid gloom, 8UJ9 and of course there is no such thing as marriage. Isn't It dreadful?" "I think it Is a canard," said Mrs. Krassln. "No, no!" persisted the princess, contending for the truth of this rumor which was so widely circulated, not only over Russia but all over the world. '"This decree Is actually in effect in Saratov." Mrs. Krassin did not wish to believe it. She was In the mental position of one who controls valuable holdings in mines, lands, machinery or other things precious, when the news of possible confiscation is bruited abroad. The princess could not understand why her cousin had suddenly become Incredulous as to any rumor attributing new enormities to the Bol- shevlkl, and tactfully changed the subject. "And let me ask about poor Ilya," said she. "Have you received any news since I last saw you?" "Not for two days," replied Mrs. Krassln; "but I hope he will soon be out of prison." "Oh! How happy you make me!" exclaimed the princess. "I have my reasons," continued Mrs. Krnssin cryptically, "for expecting his early release." Now thnt the Krassin house was so fnr as possible itself again after the days of Mrs. Krassln's seclusion, her friends were coming and going n't all times of the day. The little princess stayed a long time, discussing with vis- — — guests. The following program was «iven: poem by the president, Mrs. H. Sm.lh, Lord's Prayer, congregation; piano so' by Fern Alien; history of the M. r Aid read by Mrs. Peter Thompson; letter was read from Mrs. Gail Burt.. of Spokane, Washington; violin selec tion by Mrs. w.
