GEOBGE L, MILLER, GENERAL CONTRACTOR 610 South Podge St. Phone 763 Algona, Iowa, Beats This One, The daily papers recently carried the following story about a Massachusetts cat: "Worcester, Massachusetts.—"Ginger," the pet cat of Mrs. Charles Stewart, drinks milk by dipping it paw into the saucer and then raising the paw to it mouth. The cat, incidentally, is ambidextrous." Mr. and Mrs. I. Wernert of Algona have a pet Maltese cat that they raised from a small kitten that has drank milk in the manner described for several years. "Bobby", the pet, when told to speak, will meouw and will roll over and lie down when ordered. When told to go to bed "Bobby" goes to the basement and curls up in the bed prepared. If it is early in the evening, Bobby is reluctant to obey and will curl the lips and show the teeth, make a hissing noise and then slink away to the basement after showing objections to retiring earlier than usual.

They were brought before Justice L. A. Winkel and bound >ver to the district court under $1000 xmds each. Fischer furnished the bonds and is out; of jail, but Shaver is till In. CHAPTER XIV The Decision of the Hates • The families of the executed were not allowed to receive their bodies; but the chanting of requiems In the cathedrals In memory of the dead was permitted by the Bolshevik authorities. Musifl found herself the sole representative of tbe Krassln family to attend these observances, for ber mother wns still confined lo her bod. Tho girl listened to the lofty music, the siul hymns; she looked nt the priests In their block vclvot and silver robes, fixed her eyes on the little blnclc altar of tho requiem In the midst of the church with Its forest of wns en miles about the crucifix, looked into the eyes of the dark paintings of the saints on the walls, and felt only n dumb wonder that the lives of those Innocent people for whom tho world might have bold happiness should have been taken, nnd hor own wrecked life preserved, nnd all this in n world ruled by an all-powerful nnd just God. She hqd gone through all this before the priests announced the requiems of "the slaves of God" Ilya nnd Vladimir, and even then she listened almost ndifferently. Other mourners cried. Several women fainted. Though Musln felt a fleeting sensation of shame nt :ier own Impassivity In the midst of ;rlef, she could not join In tbem, ;hough she tbougbt In a remote way that she understood the feellngu from which they came. She felt ashamed that all the time she was thinking of herself, the wreck of her life, the perils to which she was exposed in this new and savage society, her bitter griefs quite aside from the deaths of Ilya and Vladimir. She tried to fix her mind, on Hyn, and her thoughts began to dwell on her old happy days with him, the presents he used to send her, their little secrets. These things brought the tears to her eyes; these, and the thought in all the world, now, there was no one who cared for her as Hya had done. She could not think of her mother, lying stricken nt home instead of being here at the chanting of the There is a Firestone Battery for your car—built to give you long life, power and dependability.

She dwolt on the memory of Vladimir, his budding love for her, her tender feelings toward him. And she found herself drawing pictures of life with Vladimir in his house In Petrograd; of the luxury of going to balls, theaters and operas with him; of their great estates; of the children growing up about them—all In safety. That was the thing lost, safety. How desolate It mode her to feel that there were no more estates, no more of that large, liberal old life, but only people gone wild and mad, who hunted the aristocrats like wild beasts. And she, Musia, was so young, and had so long to live I She spent her time at borne In a corner of her room thinking, brood- Ing, The sound of guna came to her cars In dull distant explosions for days, before her cousin the princess told her that there was fighting about Kazan, that the wounded were carried In truck loads through the streets, nnd that tho epidemic of typhus was growing worse every day.

One con scarcely bear the firing today; but their end will come. All we have to do Is to j wait." j The old princess was now really in charge of tho house. The Bolshevik! had taken from her her own residence, and she took great pleasure In telling Musia how they did It and what she said to them; but when she had finished, the girl was conscious of the fact that she did not remember a word of it. The princess asked her the cause of her estrangement from her mother. "Do not ask me, I beg," said Musia. "I can only tell you that I can neve speak to her again. I cannot tell yo any more. I wish I knew where to g away from here. I must got" "This IB madness, my love," er claimed the princess. "And she talk the same way. Tour griefs have mad you a little insane.

Mrs. Krassln started to her feet; the purple mounted up from under her Jabot and formed deep spots In her cheeks; her hand performed its old gesture of perplexity; but clinging In desperation to her sole hope, she made her last protest. "I have reasons," she half whispered through livid lips, "for believing in success." Then as she felt the hopelessness she saw In the faces around, she uttered an exclamation of which they spoke afterward wltb wonder.
