The Upper Des Moines-Eepublican, May 20, 1931 Twenty Tears Ago, Mrs. Joe Holteb&uef and little daughter, Kathleen had spent the week with Datives at spltit Lake. P. W. Dittgley had received his new Chalmers ear and was busy throwing the dust In the faces of the best of of them. Dr. Adams of Corwith had bought the medical practice of the late Dr. George Walters of Wesley, and was to move there at once. The Swea City school board had retained Prof, Wm. Shirley as principal and Miss Wightman in the grammar room for the cominij year. Swea City Herald: Algona is now considering paving of its streets in- etead of oiling them. This would appear to be a more sensible move. Paving is permanent Improvement, while oiling is a makeshift at best. Drs. Hartman, Kenefick, Fellows, and Cretzmever had gone by auto to Fort Dodge where they were to take the Interurban to Des Molnes where they were to attend the state medical convention. They expected to be gone three days. The business men of the north side- of State street had scheduled a baseball game with the south side for May B7 at the fair grounds. The year before several exciting games were played between the two sides, creating much fun. Two of the Lenander buffalo had broken out of the pasture on Mr. Leuander's Swea City ranch and had returned to their old pasture east of Bancroft. Arrangements were being matte to get them back to the Swea City ranch. Dr and Mrs. O. M. C. Walters of Bancroft, now of California, were leaving in a short time for Europe where the doctor expected to visit hospitals and universities and take a special course of several months. Dr. J. A. Devine was to look after his practice during his absence. The Algona Steam Laundry had had a fire, and the building was in the process of reconstruction. A Vander- llnden was in charge of the work. The Lacys had made arrangements witn laundries at Mason City and Webster City to do their work until the repairs were completed. It was thought that the building would be ready in about a week. Miss Ada Dearchs and Frank Hoflus, two of the prominent young people of the Hurt neighborhood had been married at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. Dearchs. A big wedding company had attended the cermony. Miss Lulu Hoflus was the bridesmaid and Clarence Dearchs was best man. The newlyweds planned to live on a farm in Union township. Mr. and Mrs. Melzar Haggard had delightfully entertained their friends at five hundred on two evenings the past week. About forty guests were present each evening. Mrs. Rowland Smith and Mrs. S. E. McMahon were the winners of the trophies at the Wednesday night party while Mrs. S. B. French and Ralph Laird were the fortunate ones on Friday evening. After the games a pretty luncheon was served, the violet color scheme being carried out In the lunch. Friday, Saturday and Monday pre- oedlngr the day ot publication had been moving days for the occupants of the County Savings Bank building. The bank was installed in the building formerly occupied by E. G. Bowyer. Harrington & Dickinson had moved their law library into the corner rooms in the second floor of the Algona State Bank building. The contractors were busy dismantling the old bank building preparatory to erecting the finest bank structure in this part of the state. Whittemore had suffered $25,000 flre which started in the second story of the St. Nicholas hotel, in a room occupied by an Uncle Tom Cabin troop. Prom the hotel the flre went to the three story implement house owned by Anthony Schmitt and occupied by Theodore Elbert with a large stock of Implements valued at about $12,000. Mr. Elbert was the heaviest loser of the crowd. He had Insurance for $7,000. The building was also occupied by W. S. Shackelford with a stock of harness and saddlery. The flames in the Schmitt building spread to the two- story grocery and restaurant building on the corner. The building was owned by J. T. Creighton who owned the business also, all of which was valued at about $1000 with no insurance. Mr. Shackelford's loss was estimated at $2000 and he had $1600 insurance. Mark Sarchett owned and operated the hotel building. He had $4000 insurance and a $7000 loss. Mr. Sarchett's plans were not definite. He had some thought of moving back to Algona. Mr. Schmitt had $4000 insurance with a loss estimated at $5000 and planned to rebuild at once. The flre together with one of December, 1907, cleaned out all of the buildings in the square in which the buildings were located. Big Money for Stamp A German 2-innrk blue stamp ol Togolaud, 11)14, of which only eight exist, solrt fit flimuors for £12, r >.—London Chronicle. Money to Burn Peter B. Kyno <S by Peter B. Krn«. WNU Set pica THE STORY CHAPTER I.—Hiram Butterworth, miser and skinflint, decides to leav* his Illgotten fortune to Elmer Clarke, a poor young nephew, who knows nothing about his luck. Butterworth tells Absolom McPeake, his lawyer, of a deal forty years ago In which he had swindled a man out of 140,000. and arranges for the payment of the debt, with Interest. Then Butterworth ales suddenly. Elmer, at hi* home In Pllarcltos, Calif., hears of his uncl»'» death, but not of his legacy. (Contnlued from Last Wednesday.) I'll not do anything, then, without consulting my malinger." She drenched him with her smile and continued on to her work. She was paying teller for the Pllareltos Commercial Trust fe Savings bank and one of old Ansel's dummy directors. Nellie also was the trust officer of the bank nnd a notary public. Like Elmer Clarke, she was an orphan. She was twenty-two years old und while already In Hlnrcltos she was regarded as an old mnld, more or less In the sere and yellow leaf, she was still the recipient of much attention from the most presentable of the Pllarcltos swains and was reputed to have declined to marry each of them. Elmer Clarke, the last of a stricken field, was holding his own with Nellie, however. Two years had passed since first he had sat with her on the veranda of the Tully house, where Nellie mode her home with old Mr. and Mrs. Tully. Before Elmer could escape Inside the Smoke Shoppe, he felt a hand plucking at his sleeve. The messenger had arrived with the telegram from Absolom McPeal-e. Elmer signed for It, read It, tucked It In his pocket and returned to the Smoke Shoppe. Sam Ilasklns waited for him to say something—waited five minutes, in fact, and then said: "No bod news, I hope, Elmer." Elmer shook his head and went on wiping dust off the stock. Presently Sam Hasklns essayed another sortie. "Elmer, they tell me you've fallen heir." "I have," Elmer answered without enthusiasm. Sam swatted him smartly between the shoulder blades again. "Well, why don't you'say BoinethlngiElmer ?'!.„., "Nothing to soy, Sam. The whols town knows it already. Sou couldn't expect Old Lady Bray to live with that news bottled up Inside her, could you?" "Reckon she'd bust if she tried it, Elmer." Sam heaved a heavy sigh. "I suppose this means it's up to me to git myself some new help," he added. Now that Sam had opened the ticklish subject Elmer was quick to take advantage of the opening. "Tes, Sam. I don't suppose either of us can afford the luxury of a million-dollar man working for forty dollars a week. However, Sam, I was going to leave you, anyhow. In fact, it was my Intention to slip you the bad news tonight. This telegram hasn't made the slightest bit of difference, because the news it contains is as great a surprise to me as it was to Old Lady Bray. I was going to quit you to go into business for myself." "In what line?" Sam's tone was freighted with anxiety. "Same line as this." "What? After workin' for me five years an' learnln' the business from me, you figure on startln 1 opposition?" Sum Hasklns lost his temper com- "It's a Rotten Trick to Play on Me, Elmer." pletely. "It's a rotten trick to play on me, Elmer." "I'm hurry you think so. At any rate, your protest does not uiovo me, so you have my resignation, to take DR. RE. SAWYER effect Immediately. 1 Wotfl3n't wdrft ft split second for a man who thinks I'm capable of dirty tricks and Who has as little appreciation of loyalty and ability as you possess." And Elmer tossed the cheesecloth nnder the counter, took his salary to date from the cash register, made out a receipt for it—and walked out of the Smoke Shoppe. "You goln' to let me down without notice?" Snm cried incredulously. "I wasn't—until j-on tnlkpd that way. Hereafter, Snm, get along the best way you know how." He walked away down Mnin street, only to be stopped by n concerted rush of men congregated across the street. They pumped his hand, Elnpped his back nnd showered him with congratulations. Eventually Elmpr escaped from them and continued on down to the I'ilnr- cltos Commercial Trust & Savings bank. At Nellie's window he pnnsed long enough to hand her the telegram from McPeake and continued on to Ansel Moody's office. The banker rose expedltlously and shook hands with him. "Well, Elmer, did you bring the search of the title of your C street pruppty with you?" he Inquired with mock Interest. Elmer sat down. "I've decided not to go Into that business after all, Mr. Moody," he announced. "Since speaking with you this morning I have received a telegram from a lawyer in Muscatlne, Iowa, Informing me that under the lust will and testament of my Uncle lllram Butterworth, of that city, I am, with the exception of two minor bequests, the sole beneficiary of an estate conservatively estimated at a million dollars." Of nil the congratulatory hand- shakcs he had received that morning none equaled In promptness and intensity of grip the one which old Ansel Moody gave him now. "By gravy!" cried the banker. "By gravy! If this ain't the best news I've over heard, Elmer. You're the richest man in 1'llnrcltos an' the second richest ninn In the county. I congratulate you with all my heart." "Thank you, Mr. Moody. I must say I do not fuel depressed about It myself. The first thought about it to me after receiving that telegram wns Hint I had been going sixteen hours a day for five years without a vacation; und during that five years I have had to bent back a long way to regain my health. I was struggling for a prize—and now the necessity for further struggle Is ended. I have come to the conclusion, therefore, that I'll leave Sam Hnskins in possession of his monopoly." At that moment Nellie entered to return the telegram to him. "I'm awfully happy for your sake, Elmer," she told him. "Still, this Is not a surprise to me. I told you last night that within a week your ship would come In." "Thnnk you, Nellie. I cnme down to tell you first, but of course you knew It already. Old Lady Bray had broadcast it." "Yes, she telephoned me first, Elmer." Ansel Moody turned to his paying teller nnd trust officer. "Why didn't you telephone me this great news, ., Miss : Cathcart ?'„', he demanded. "I would have informed you when I reached the bank this morning, Mr. Moody, If Alice Goodfellow hadn't told me she had telephoned you at your home." Old Ansel could have stabbed her with his paper knife. To cover his confusion he picked up the telegram and studied it carefully. "Sure somebody ain't tryin' to play a practical joke on you, Elmer?" he asked finally. "If you want, I'll wire some bank in Muscatlne an' ask them to Investigate an' report" "If you will be kind enough to do that, Mr. Moody, I will be under obligation to you." "Certainly. Miss Cathcart, attend to that matter, please. Elmer, if this bank can serve you in any way, always remember that that's what we're hero for—to serve our customers. Good luck to you, boy, an' God bless you!" He shook hands with Elmer again, very cordially, and answered the telephone. Elmer followed Nellie out into the lobby of the bank. "Don't be misled by Mr. Moody's friendliness, Elmer," she warned him. "He's after your account. If he hadn't had advance information he would not have waylaid you this morning and offered to finance you." "Think so?" Klmer was a trifle doubtful. "Know so. The man's a shark. Be careful of him. He'll try to get your confidence and unload somo of his own cats and dogs on you under the guise of advising you in your Investments. In fact, you'll have n great number of people sacrificing themselves to the solemn duty of safeguarding that million dollars, Elmer. Heretofore you had a host of friends who loved you for what you nre. You will now double the number of your friends. Be careful of them, Elmer. They will love you for what you have. That, by the way," she added, "Is the first, last nnd only ndvice I urn going to give you and I prefer to give it to you before you come into your inheritance. I loathe competition." Elmer wns about to sny something that had boon close to his heart for two yours, but reflected in time that the lobby of a hank was not the proper place to sny it. Moreover, Mr. Crlt- temk'ii, the cashier, had come out of his olllce now nnd wns proffering a congratulatory Immlslmke. "You'll find that wealth is a burden," ho informed the now millionaire suge- ly. "1'ut It In honds, Elinor—Liberty bonds. The Interest yield Is small, but it is safe." Klmer caught the buiall smile In buck of Nellie's lovely eyes as ho left the bunk. On the sidewalk he met Kd Wyntt, mayor of the town, who promptly corrnled him. "Conserve it, .Elnier, conserve it," his Honor boomed In his mellow, rotund voice that hadu't any more sincerity in it than near beer. "When you get around to it, see me and I'll put you next to one of the grandest buys in an apricot orchard that Is to be found In the state." Elmer thanked him end proceeded on Ills way. But not very far. Lafe Kldwell, the chlaf of police, culled bin) over tP W» .car jwd, Jwioing gut, gaye liTrri hTs card, after "first Writing'on ft: "To nil peace officers: "The bearer, Elmer B. Clarke, is a personal friend of mine. Any courtesies extended will be nppreclated." "You'll be getting yourself n new car, Elmer," the chief prophesied, "and this cnrd might help you with the traffic officers." Elmer tucked the cnrd away in his wallet, n little pleased to have It In case of emergency. Arriving home, he changed Into on old suit nnd frnm boots, climbed Into his second-hand flivver nnd departed for his favorite trout stream. It was dark when ho returned to Pilnrcitos. He clumped his clothes nnd drove nnnind to the Tully hniisp. lie found Nellie seated on tho front porch. "Hnve you hnd yoi-r dinner, Elmer?" she nskPd. "No, Nellie. Thought I'd come nround nnd tnke you to dinner out to Joe Angellutti's. Been fishing. Didn't have much luck, but got enough for yon and me. Joe will cook ilicm for us." Shu climbed into the coupe and took the wheel, "I'll drive, Elmer. Something tells me you have hnd a hard day." "I have, Nellie. I've been experiencing the burden of wealth. Already old enemies show n disposition to let sleeping dogs He and the Elmer B. darks Benevolent nnd Protective association is In process of organization exactly as you foretold." "Whnt nre you going to do, Elmer?" "I'm going to Muscatlne as soon as I cnn, have a consultntlon with Mc- Penke, lenrn whnt the estate consists of nnd then decide whnt I nm going to do. While I'm nwny you cnn use the flivver." "Thanks, Elmer. Want me to feed your dog nnd the ennarles?" He turned toward her Impulsively nnd Inld his hand over hers, where it clnsped the wheel. "Y-ou're a sweetheart, Nellie," he murmured. Nellie looked at him with love lights in her eyes, but suddenly remembering that he wns now n millionaire and she must not be guilty tonight of n tendency toward a sentiment she would not have bothered to repress if Elmer hnd been as poor as Job's fnmed turkey, she withdrew her hand from under his and asked him how many trout he had cnught that day. "Ten nice ones, Nellie. Somehow I couldn't keep my mind on the fish today. It's quite a shock to become a millionaire without warning." "You'll grow accustomed to It. By the time the novelty of buying whatever you want has worn off, you'll have learned much of men nnd motives. Probably, too, you'll hnve learned much about women. And of course you'll not live In Pilnrcitos." "Really, Nellie, you wouldn't blame me for leaving this little country town of three thousand Inhabitants. I've been weary of It for a long, long time." "You've had the wanderlust ever since you went nwny to the war," Nellie complained. "However, I suppose you'll come back occasionally to visit your real friends in Pllarcitos." ,."Of course, Nellie. By the way, did Moodjr receive an answer from the Muscatine bank?" , "Not up to the time I left the office." "I'm not going to make any definite plans until that telegram comes, Nellie. Suppose McPeake's telegram has been garbled in transit. Suppose some trick clause should develop in the will. Suppose I have to do some fool thing before I'll be eligible as a residuary legatee; suppose I decide not to do it and the million dollars goes to charity." "Better play safe, Elmer. Tackle Ansel Moody for a large unsecured loan tomorrow morning. If the bank confirms the McPeake telegram, he'll fall all over himself to accommodate you. Then if your inheritance proves a dlssappolntment you'll not be at Moody's mercy." Elmer laughed. "I'll do it," he declared. "It'll be nice to know I have a ten thousand dollar credit." "Mnke It twenty thousand and see if you cnn get away with it." "It would be nice to have the money in case n cog slipped In that will," he agreed. "Well, I'll try old Ansel out in the morning." He nnd Nellie had dinner at Joe Angellottl's Italian tavern ten miles out on the country turnpike. They danced until midnight to jazz strains from a radio with n loud speaker nnd drove home very happy in the secondhand coupe. At parting that night Elmer Clarke kissed Nellie. Cn(.heart for the first time since he had known her—nnd he had known her since his twelfth year. Nellie offered no serious objection. However, with maidenly repression, she did not Invite a shower of oscula- l.ion, and when Elmer seemed about to unload the secret he hnd reserved for unloading until ho could afford to offer Nellie worldly comforts far in excess of those she nt present enjoyed, she reminded him thnt he wns not to make any plans until the morrow. Elmer laughed. "Well, kiss me once more," ho pleaded. "Unless a fellow can take a sporting chance he might as well bo dead, so I'll take one sporting chance and tell you thnt I love you, Nellie. I'm crazy about you nnd I hnve been for years. I—I—" "I've suspected this, Elmer." Nellie's face was uplifted to him again. "And I don't see any reason why you've kept it n secret from me when everybody else in town know It! You old dour! I'm so happy about you I could cry— and I will if you don't let me go." He lot her go—but not until he had heard from her sweet lips an admission that she loved him bolter tlinn anything or anybody In the whole wide world. Long after Elmer Clarke, despite tho strain and excitement of that momentous day, had fallen Into his customary gentle slumber Nellie Ctithcurt sut before her dressing table, median- icully brushing her hair and thinking. For Nellie could think. Although beautiful she was bruluy—the type of woman whom the Creator occasionally fashions seemingly for the express purpose of demonstrating to egotistic man that the hand that rocks tho cradle rules the world. Just now Nellie was thinking that, although epJjQfljv not. eygn, Elmer.

When the First National Rank of Muscatlne, Iowa, had written for a report on Elmer Clarke, nnd old Ansel with n grin had handed her the letter with the suggestion that she had better answer it since she knew more ahout Elmer Clarke than any girl In town, Nellie had thrilled at the opportunity to write a report calculated to present Elmer In a light which could not possibly fall to Impress the valued customer of the Muscatlne bank who sought the Information. Old Ansel hadn't the slightest suspicion that this customer wns Elmer's queer uncle, but Nellie, who had learned from Elmer all that the hitter knew about his crabbed relative, was convinced Instantly that Uncle Hiram was about to develop a ions- delayed Interest in his nephew. With the adroitness of a clever woman she resolved instantly to foster that budding interest by forwarding a report calculated to appeal particularly to the sort of man she believed Uncle Hiram Butterworth to he.
