New and charming serial starting with today’s issue of this paper. You will find keen delight in Diamonds of Malopo by Victor Rousseau. Two men fight a desperate, hand-to-hand battle in the wilderness. The prizes are a rich diamond claim and a fascinating girl. The author has dealt charmingly with romance among the French Canadians, with thrilling adventures on the sea. He has never been more interesting than in this startling narrative of love and adventure in the desert regions of South Africa.

For Travis Peterson, it was a sudden change but a very welcome change. He was coming home. Peterson, a Cowley native and 1996 graduate of Rocky Mountain High School, was hired in August as the new seminary teacher for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Lovell, launching a teaching career and taking him down a joyous path he thought had ended 10 years ago.
