The Upper Des Moines-HepubUcan, April 8, 1931 WEED BOOKLETS ARE DISTRIBUTED Windbreak and Shelterbel Demonstration Plantings How Being Established EVERGREEN TREES ABE ECONOMICAL Dairy Coif Clubs in County Are Hold ing their Annual Organization Meeting at This Time, Weed control and eradication Is a subject of increasing interest to everj farmer and land owner of Kossuth county and as such has been made a major project of the county farm bu reau for 1931, with the cooperation an support pf county officials and wee commissioners of the townships. Meetings are being held throughou the county for those interested in th discussion of weed eradication and con trol practices that are ' being foun successful in this and other counties A "Handbook of Iowa Weeds" has been distributed to over 200 farmers and t< all weed commissioners and a new bulletin on "Weeds and Then- Con trol" by R. H. Porter is now available for distribution. Some weeds such as perennlel sow thistle and horse nettle are generally considered more difficult to conteni with than Canada thistle and every effort is being made to encourage th eradication of these weeds before they become established in the county. Chemicals Used. Chemicals have been looked to by many as possibly an easy means o eradication. However, Mr. Porter, wh has helped with many weed radlcation campaigns says, "It must be demon strated that weeds can be killed more economically by other methods, espec ially in large areas." Demonstrations recommended in elude: cultivation and spraying, by use of cultivated crop and use of surfaci cultivation during early summer fol lowed by spraying in the late summer and fall; cultivation, by frequent cul tlvation of crop during; growing season removing crop early to allow late sum jner fallowing of ground and returning land to a cultivated crop or alfalfa next season; use of annual smothe 1 crops such as sudan grass and cane seeded'at double the usual rate abou June 15 after the land has been work ed during -the early part of the season summer fallowing by use of spring tooth harrow or surface cultivator of ten enough to prevent any top growth of plants; use of alfalfa on sweet soil seeded with 20 or 25 pounds of seed pe: acre and fertilized with phosphate a one hundred pounds per acre. Here the growth should be lieavy and give a crop which can be cut often each year. This frequents .along with economical means of eradication oi large areas of thistles if they have been weakened din-ing the previous year by thorough cultivation of corn or other cultivated crops. Shelterbelta, , _WindBrealc and shelterbelts demonstration plantings are being established on eight farms in various parts of the county through the cooperation of local farmers and the Iowa State College forestry extension service and the county farm bureau. Plantings of this kind are to demonstrate .the possibilities of growing an evergreen shelterbelt in a comparatively short period of years and to em- phaslze the value of evergreen planting as a protection for feed lots and buildings, from an economic standpoint and as a farm improvement project. Simon Severson of Eagle township and J. M. Patterson of Riverdale township made a trip to the nursery at Ames last Wednesday for the trees for the various plantings. Mr. Runkle of Ames, assistant to I. T. Bode, extension forester, was in the county Thursday *ftd Friday to help start the plantings according to recommendations of the forestry department and asflst in any rearrangement of original plans that the local cooperator cared to make. Trees furnished Included white pine, lifonvay spruce and Douglas fir. Such project^ are limited to number allowed each county and are followed up »y the forestry department with replacements and assistance in any necessary transplanting for a period of three years. Local cooperators are the men who requested plantings following a publicity article in the Farm Bureau Exchange last summer. These men Include H. B. Seeley, Algona; Chas. and Homer Eggerth, Lakota; L. H. Crawford, Algona; J. A. Lee, Buffalo Center; Simon Severson, Granada, Minnesota; A. Hutchison, Algona; Gus Koppen, Lakota; and J. M.

Beets Grown on Feat Land Barred. Company Guarantees $6.50 a Ton for Fifteen Per Cent Beets. Swea City Herald: Sugar beet acreage In the Swea City territory has been reduced this year by the American Beet Sugar company of Mason City. Last year's acreage of more than 300 acres has been cut to 250. The company furthermore has limited Its contracts to the old growers, contracts with new growers have not been accepted. A poor sugar market and an unfavorable outlook have caused the American Beet Sugar company to curtail Its operations. Swea City Is now the company's wester-most station In northern Idwa, such stations as Gniver and Lake Park having been abandoned It Is said. The Belmond plants has been shut down and stations In the Fort Dodge region abandoned. Contracts for beets have been signed by the following local growers, all of whom have been with the company for a number of years: the Isaacson farm, E. C. Peterson, Alfred Barslou, L. A; Barslou and Wm. Evans. Peat Land Barred. The company guarantees a price of $6.50 a ton provided the beets show a sugar content of fifteen per cent. Growing of beets on peat land Is prohibited by the company this year, because beets from such soil fall to provide a satisfactory amount of sugar content, although the tonnage is usually large. Jrlumboldt Cuts Salaries of Teachers. The Humboldt Independent says that at Thursday's meeting of the board of education, a total cut of $1,000 was made in the teachers' salaries.

Then he apologizes for his unworthy Idea that she hod been a party to her mother's plotting, and tells her he loves her Dazed, but not Indignant, the grlrl In 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." CHAPTER XIII. — Mrs. Krassln, knowing of Musla's visit to Ixirls, Is convinced the girl has saved Ilya. Mu- sla Is unable to keep her thoughts from the commissar, In which she Is ashamed to find a certain pleasure Then to the mother who has hoped so much from Musla's supposed sacrifice, comes the news of the execution of Ilya and Vladimir, and In a frenzy she denounces Musla, declaring the girl had "murdered" her brother. (Continued from Last Wednesday.) "Wlicn Princess inuTGorovskayn had left her after telling her of tlie strange things her mother had sold, Musla suddenly came to what she considered a flnnl decision. She would wait no longer. She began looking over her clothes In order that she might select the Indispensable things which she must take with her; but even as she held the garments in her hands, she would look away Into vacancy, and drop them on the floor. When the maid, Sasha, tapped at her door, Musla started up with a little scream of terror. The maid came In with apologies. There was a strange woman waiting to see Musla, who would give neither her name nor her business, but said the young lady would see her "If she. knew," if she knewl Musla already knew. "Let her come here," said Musla. To Musla, she was only a Tartar woman; to Lorls she was "grandmother." She moved with a tinkling sound like the music of strings of little bells, as the many copper and silver coins which hung from neck, wrists and the black braids of her hair, struck against one another as she moved, and especially as she made the obeisance of the days of old on entering. She smiled as Bbo began ala noticed that there weeks ago nritl looked over The house. One of the soldiers wns n man she hnd got acquainted with that other time, nnd he sold that Tovn- risch Vlllnsky wns now really coming there to make this his headquarters. And they must not move out any of the furniture, nor must the family eave the place. These were orders. Musin started up, nil her terror of Vlllnsky Hooding her being. She must fly—anywhere away from this house. She turned to spenk to Snshn, but the girl wns gone. Everybody wns In [innlc; there wns n subdued scurrying nil over the house. Tnnlc took possession of Mtisin. She took from n closet her little bng nnd put Into It the tow necessnr.v nrtlcles of clothing which she hnd selected. She quickly dressed for the street, tnUIng whnt money she hnd nnd her few Jewels In a little purse. These things she did nutomntlcnlly. She wondered ngnln whether or not she should die of stnrvntlon, nnd with n strange attention to details, she took under her nrm n bos of chocolate bonbons which she hnd hnd for a very long time—but she forgot the brend and mcnt which she hnd smuggled Into her room, though It Iny before her very eyes on n shelf of the closet. When she left the room with her chocolate under her nrm nnd her little bag In her hand, she almost rnn Into two of Vlllnsky's snllors standing gunrd—two of the controlling faction among the Bolshevlkl In Knznn. She shrnnb bnck Into her room. How should she escnpe? For thnt she must escnpe seemed to her an unquestionable necessity. She wns leaving the old place for cver —fateful words, which she repented nloud—"For evcrl" She should never see her mother again—the mother who hnd brought hor Into the world; who liad neon so good to her In her childhood; who hnd for so much of her life been the chief llgure In It—who wns still even now In their estrangement. Tears cnme to Mnsln's eyes as she thought of old, forgotten, tender things; nnd as Snshn chnnced to put her head In nt the door to say something 'nbou* the Bolshevlkl, Musin called to her nnd arrested her attention. "Where Is my mother?" she Inquired. "In her own room," said Sasha. "She Is putting on her black dress— nnd the lace Jnbot—coming down to face the Bolshevlkl. Is sue not wonderful?" "Go to her," said Musla, "and tell by for me that I beg leave to see hen Tell her thht I nm going away—that I wish to bid her good-by." Sasha looked at Musia In wonder as If she could not comprehend the message. Musla repeated It "But," said the maid, "Tovarisch Vlllnsky has ordered that none of us shall be allowed to go." "Will you not go," said Musla nu thorltatlvely, "and tell my mother whnt I have said?' 1 With her look of astonishment ren. dering her face blank of all other expression Sasba went; and In scarcely jlPTTTV™ 1 ^ *'w ' ~ FRIDAY AND SATURDAY SPECIALS Hallowii Dates 2 Pounds 25c Queen Olives i^r^Z 1 23c DAILY BREAD Pound Loaf 5c Morning Light Pork and Beans 111 Tomato Sauce 0 Large OC p * No. 21/2 cans *• JL "Superb" Mustard 19c ''Superb" Peanut Butter gT* 39c Council Oak Catsup 2 l1 °°?--25c PEACHES "Tulare" Clingstones Sliced or halves 7Q 2 large No. 2V 2 cans JJ Corn - Peas - Tomatoes can lOc Stringless Beans Green or Wax No. 2 can 15c "SUPERB" SSanCORN^r Na 15c LAWN GRASS SEED '' Golden Harvest,'' pound pkg. 07« TAC-CUT COFFEE Pound can Council Oak Japan Tea 8°^. 29c Robb Ross Pancake Flour 4 & 27c JOHNSON'S FLOOR WAX Pint liquid—55c.

There was quite a flght on at the city hall at the meeting of the council after the election for mayor. Bowyer was defeated 312 to 95 by J. W. Wadsworth, but arrived at the council **'teeth*-'were that she was a married woman. She spoke In the broken Russian of the Tartars. "I bring you something," she said. Taking off her shoe, she slipped from under the sole a small folded slip of paper, which seemed te have been torn off a blank form of some sort Musla's bean fluttered and her fingers trembled as she unfolded it, turned it to the light, and read: "I am more sorry than words can express. I risked my life to save your brother, and I would have given it If it could have sufficed to save him. Perhaps I have given it—but if so what of It? "I am always waiting for you; but I can not wait much longer. Unless you come at once, you may not nnd me. Come, my dear I' 1 "L." Musla folded the paper and thrust it into the bosom of her gown—then she took It out and unfolded it The Tartar woman, watching her, saw how Musla treated the letter, and smiled. Musla caught the smile, and in a little Embarrassment, walked once or twice back and forth across the room; then she turned to Lorls' messenger—and heard the tinkling of the coins as they went out of hearing down the passage. After all, she said to herself bitterly, she had one friend. From thnt time on, she began to think of him as renlly her friend, ns one who loved her; and a warm feel- Ing grew up in her breast toward him. Whnt did he mean by saying that perhaps he had really given his life In trying to save Ilya? She longed to see him, and tnlk with him about this. There was really nobody else in the world—in whnt was left of the world—whom she cared to see. It seemed as if she must talk to some one about Loris: so she began far away from him In a conversation I spending her Easter vacation with her [parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Smith. • ' •—• " •*•" •-- minutes sne returned, blanker still. "Your mother sends you word," said she, "thnt she does not wish to see you; and she said—I remember her very words—that she knows of noth Ing which she would rather say to you than farewell, but that she begs to be excused from saying anything! Musla walked out of the house without hindrance. Her mother's message seemed a matter of little consequence, as she skulked her roundabout way under the shrubbery to that back gate through which poor Vladimir had gone to captivity and death. She opened It and stepped out into the street. It closed behind her, with a sharp click, as the spring lock fastened her out into the beast-haunted forest of Kazan. She moved away a few steps, and then, turning back, she passed her hands over the outside of the gate as If it had been the face of a loved one, and kissed It good-by. The day had darkened down Into the early autumnal dusk. She could see nobody in the street. She walked off rapidly Into the darkness. In the ancient mansion of the Krassins, there were now left of all that great family only a crazed old woman and an imbecile old man. ' Down In the railway yards stood the luxurious vagon de luxe of Tovorlscl Loris In Its usual state of readines; for movement. And Tovarlsch Loris himself came speeding down from meeting of the council of commissars —a meeting in which Tovariseh Vilin sky had carried everything before him Vlllnsky was now the favorite of Still Going Strong. Estherville Enterprise: C. E. Jolllfl was arrested last Saturday evening near the Nathanson oil station when their Ford coupe ran Into the corner brick pillar and knocked it down. They were coming from the west and it is claimed that Jolliff has fanlting spells and had one Just as he reached this point. There were three gallons of booze in the car and any one might have a spell under those conditions. The story is that Jolliff and his wife were up in Minnesota looking for a load. Some legger had stolen four gallons from Jolliff some time In the jast. Some girls tipped him off where egger had four gallons and he went and got it in payment for the booze he ost. He drove into this city and had nls fit and ran into the post. His wife ran the car across the street. She ticked out the cellar window In the Kelly basement. She told some stranger to destroy it. When they took her husband to the hospital she told him /hat she had done with the booze. The police heard her and they rushed to the Kelly home and found a fel- ow about wild because someone had hrown the cans Into the basement. They got it out and then arrested the ellow. He is pleading guilty and will ate. meeting first and had to be requested by Marshal George Hackinan to get out of the mayor's chair. Bowyer stated that he was the rightful mayor of Algona, but would give no reason for the statement other than that he would take the matter up in court. with tlie Princess Khaborovskaya, first discussing her affairs generally, and then her father and mother—but when she reached the point of bringing Loris in she was overcome with shyness and shame, and the thought of where the discussion might lead. She was, after all, only n timid child, hedged about with old conventions, with humiliations, with perplexities and with perils. Matters went on much as usual the day after she had received Loris 1 note; but Musla felt that their mere going on was In itself a fateful- change, like the movement of n ship Into new regions while one slept. And the little princess told her that Mrs. Krassln hod arisen, been dressed, walked about, and would no doubt bo down next day. This was great news In the old mansion, and Sasha the maid retold It to Musin with n very great deal of satisfaction. And even as the maid was giving Musla all the particulars about her mother, of how she moved about, how weak and trembling she was, but how very much better, there was a deafening rapping and pounding at the street door, the sound of a great car In the street, now at most times so silent, aud Sasha, having gone at Uusla's request to find out what wus the matter, came back breathless and said It was the Bolshevlkl again. .It was the same sq_uod that hadbeeu the snllors. He had control. He wns In position to oust Loris from his position of superiority; and he had been too smooth, to deprecatory to Loris even while remorselessly riding him down with votes, to leave any doubt In the mind of that experienced young man, as to how that control would be exercised. When Vlllnsky was savage nnd discourteous, Loris thought, he was not dangerous; what he was when he tried to bo courteous was a problem which Loris believed himself effectively, to have solved.
