THE RIVIERA ROAD.
(Continued from page 2, Col. 6.)
could scarcely breathe. She clasped
her hands to her breast, and for a
long time remained motionless, tears
stinging her eyes, a dizziness sway-
ing through her. After a while she
grew calmer and began a prayer.
When at length she rose, the old
guide wags standing near her, the can-
dles almost burned out in her shaking
On the rail above the bench stood
a contribution cup. Madeleine saw
it, and a sudden sharp happiness went
through her. For only a second she
hesitated; then, putting her hand in-
side her dress, she drew out the
chamois-skin packet of jewels, and
dropped it, just as it was, into the
“We'll never need them,” she rea.
soned. “I don’t want jewels any more.
That life is all past now. She needs
them more than we do.”
In the church above, Raoul walked
about restlessly. He was not impa-
tient with waiting; they had plenty
of time; but fear kept invading his
mind. He knew that nobody had fol-
lowed them; that they were perfectly
safe. But suppose something went
wrong, and they were found out—
traced—and Madeleine borne down
with him under all that might result?
There wouldn’t be any peace for eith-
er of them again. They’d never get
free of the things they’d done.
And suppose the bills were marked,
after all? He hadn’t examined them
carefully to see....
Without a lot of money you couldn’t
play high; without playing high he
and Madeleine would be almost poor.
He hated to admit it to himself. His
own money didn’t amount to much,
though he could count on it regular-
ly. But then there were the jewels.
Madeleine had said she wouldn’t wear
them, even reset. With care they
could dispose of them at a fair price.
Then he made up his mind. People
didn’t look for marked money in
He drew the roll of stolen bills from
an inner pocket and commenced strip-
ping them off in handfuls, and stuffing
them into every box he found. He
worked quickly, going about the
church looking for more and more
boxes—boxes for masses, for the sick,
for the support of the church itself.
Soon there were no bills left. He
stood against a pillar and considered
what he’d done.
Madeleine found him there. The
light had almost faded from the win-
dows. She could not see the expres-
sion of his face, nor could he see hers.
Together they went out into the
dusk, through the narrow street to-
ward the car. Raoul had taken
Madeleine’s arm, and was helping her
over the rough cobblestones. He
leaned close to her protectingly, and
asked her how she felt. She did not
speak, but pressed his arm for 23-
Raoul switched on the car's lights,
and got the robes ready. Before help-
ing Madeleine in he could not keep
from questioning her.
“Have you—everything all right?
You're sure the jewels are—pinned
safely into your dress?”
She stood in the street in the gath-
ering darkness and faced him.
“Oh, my dear,” she said, “I’ll have
to tell you. You mustn’t be so very
angry. And I wished to—I couldn't
help it. I left them. They're in the
church. We'll never want them, with
all the money——"
Then she saw that he was standing
stiffly before her, not moving at all
and not saying a word; and she was
“Raoul—you’re angry—you do
mind!” she cried. “Say something!
What is ths matter, my dear?”
Then he reached out and put his
hands on her shoulders.
“There’s nothing the matter.” He
spoke in a very low voice. “There’s
nothing at all the matter. Only—
don’t you see—we’re free! We're
absolutely free. We don’t have to be!
afraid of anything now!”
“But I don’t understand——"
“The money—it might have been
marked, you know—and I left it in
the church poor-boxes.” He sighed.
“It’s a great relief—

Water Hydrants Should be Inspected
to Avoid Freezing Up in Winter.
As autumn approaches the neces-
sity for careful inspection of fire
hydrants for imperfections and leaks
becomes more important, says the
Pennsylvania Public Service Informa-
tion Committee. It is only a com-
paratively short time hefore in many
localities freezing weather will pre-
vail, and if the barrel contains water
through leaks or imperfect drainage,
serious trouble will result and bad
freeze-ups will occur.
There is nothing that will increase
the danger of the spread of fire more
than a frozen or defective hydrant.
These important adjuncts to fire
fighting are generally under the care
of the water department whose re-
sponsibility it is to have them ready
for the use of the firemen at all
times. One of the principal reasons
for the hydrant failures in time cof
need is freezing.
This can only be avoided by care-
ful, thorough and frequent inspec-
tions by men delegated to this work
by the water department At the
slightest indication of trouble, these
men must see to it that the hydrant
is at once repaired, put into working
condition and kept so.
The performance of this work
must be quick and thorough. A fire
hydrant must not be out of service
any length of time, or serious danger
to the city may result. A conflagra-
tion may even follow upon the failure
of two or three hydrants to function.
Long Trek of Mennonites.
Not since the Pilgrims boarded the |
Mayflower at Delft Haven for New
England has there been, it is claimed,
such a migration of a religious body
as that which is now coming to an end
in South America This is the trek
of a large body of Mennonites from
the cold plains of Western Canada
to the tropical plains and forests of
Paraguay, where a hospitable gov-
ernment has accepted them on their
own terms. The Mennonites are a
sect which acknowledges only the
authority of the Bible, refuses to bear
arms or take oath, postpones baptism
until after confession of faith, and
dislikes all forms of church hierarchy.
They have sought refuge in various
parts of Europe, in Canada, and in
some parts of this country, and in
some instances have encountered dif-
ficulties because of their beliefs and
their refusal to accept the generally
recognized responsibilities of citizen-
ship. Those who migrated to Can-
ada have not found the conditions of
life and the climate suitable. Week
by week, in groups of from three to
four hundred, composed of entire
families, writes Dr. Webster Brown-
ing in the Missionary Review of the
World, these people are arriving at
the port of Buenos Ayres, and are im-
mediately continuing their journey to
their new home, 1,750 miles inland,
by the great river of the Parana. It
is stated, says Dr. Browning, who is
educational secretary of the Com-
mittee on Co-operation in Latin Am-
erica, that within a few years a total
of 100,000 men, women and children
will have arrived and taken possession
of the land which has heen allotted
to them by a special law of Paraguay.
This grant, we read, lies on the east-
ern slopes of the Andes and along the
Paraguay River. The company which
is financing the movement has pur-
chased 38,000,000 acres of ideally lo-
cated and fertile land.
An unusual charter has been grent-
ed by the Paraguayan government
to the Mennonites. According to its
terms they receive considerations
which it is said thev have not been
able to obtain elsewhere, such as ex-
emption from military service, the
right to conduct their own schools and
churches in their own language, free-
dom from taking an oath and the ab-
solute control of the colony by them-

Police Horses Called Best-Trained An-
“The mount of the New York
mounted cop is not merely a horse;
he’s perhaps the best bred, finest-
trained animal in existence,” writes
Gurney Williams in an article in the
American Boy magazine on these
“four-footed cops.” Accordng to Mr.
Williams about 25 horses are pur-
chased for the service each year, eith-
er from special dealers or from the
open market, The police department
is allowed by the city $325 for the
purchase of each horse, which must
be from four to eight years old, and
weigh 1,000 to 1,150 pounds, and be
15% to 16 “hands high, and have a
long mane and tail. When the re-
cruit comes into the training stable,
says Mr. Williams, he’s put on pro-
bation for ten days, and, if any minor
fault prevents his use at the end of
that time, he is allowed ten more
days. It takes from 20 to 60 days
to train a horse, and at the end of
that time even the toughest horse
is safe to ride—if he’s handled right.
Horses that are unruly are put in
a special harness, called the cavesson,
which forces the animal to assume
the correct position. With the aid
of this cavesson the horse is taught to
walk, trot and canter properly. Then
he is taught his passages, that is, to
walk sideways like a erib.
- Mr. Williams points -out that this
trick is very useful in handling a mob,
as the average mob is afraid of the
police horses, although they never get
stepped on, kicked or bitten. Stop-
ping properly is the next performance
the horse is taught. Many of the
horses have also learned to trot back-
ward, although these tricks are not
required. The training program is not
complete, however, until the horse can
jump and has ceased to be afraid of
fire. The average length of service
of police horses, according to the
writer is 12 years, although one horse
at present has seen eighteen years of
Auto License Tags.
All motorists in Pennsylvania are
urged by the State Department of
Highways to register any changes of
address with the Bureau of Motor
Vehicles at once.
In making the announcement Ben-
jamin G. Eynon, Register of Motor
Vehicles, pointed out that the depart.
ment will begin the mailing of the
1928 plates about October 17.
Eynon also called attention to the
fact that the postoffice authorities will
not remail or forward any plates from
one address to another. Eynon ex-
plained that this rule would be in
effect because license plates are sent
as fourth class mail, which is not
Eynon called attention of motor-
ists to the fact that if license plates
are returned to the department they
will not be remailed until the motor-
ist has filled out and sent in form 1122
for change of address.
In making this announcement Ey-
non called attention to the fact that
the notice of change must show
Whether the operator's permit address
is to be changed as well as the regis-
License plate applications will be
placed in the mails about October 1,
Eynon said, and further announced
that application for operators’ per-
mits will be mailed about January 1.
Last year, Eynon said, 70,000 re-
newal applications were returned for
better address. This resulted, it was
explained, in an average of two let-
ters.in each cage before the application
reached the applicant involving a pos-
tage expense of $2,000 in addition to
stenographic and stationery expenses.

Gosh, What a Bottle of Scotch Will
The following from a correspondent
in Harrisburg speaks—we should say
reads—for itself. We have rarely seen
such progressively cumulative evi-
dence of the effects of Scotch and are
wondering whether the writer finished
his bottle before he did his letter or
whether he had sense enough to save
a little to revive the “hang over” he
must have had next morning—Ed.

society in doing so. I like a little
