THERE Is no doubt that Newport la

Willinmsport, Altoona nnd
Other Cities Send Throngs
for Brief Atlantic
City Stay
ATLANTIC CITY, Aug. 14. Altoona,
Wllllamsport. Sunbury nnd points between
those cities 200 or more miles from Phila
delphia furnished a large quota of tho Sun
day excursionists As all of these visitors
arrived early yesterday morning, they con
tributed largely to the coffers of tho res
taurants b.ithlng houses nnd open amuse
ments Few other rciorts In the world have suf
ficient attractions to draw people from such
distances for a one-day stay and Induce
them to undergo tho discomforts of a trip
which require thim to leave their homes
before midnight on Saturday, ride all night
In day coaches nnd reach here long before
tho summer population hns even thought of
getting up.
Tho regular one-day excursion trains
from I'hllp lelphla were crowded, mostly
with adults, few children making tho trip
because of the red tape wound around tho
securing of henlth certificates In Philadel
phia for a one-day trip.
The hotel crowd over Sundny was much
larger than the previous Sunday and tbe
big Sundn) of tho year, odlclnlly slated as
due next week, will havo to start In early
nnd work late to surpass yesterday. Whllo
thero arc few profligate spenders here this
year, the nverago visitor Is burning up
much more than usual, so that tho gross
total ot receipts by business men 13 much
inrgcr man In any previous year. Every
branch of business seems to bo enjoying
prosperity, nnd the hotel owners are par
ticularly gratlllcd.
The Sunday amusement mtxup seems to
have been temporarily settled, aa nil of tho
plnces which wero raided Inst Sunday
opened at 2 o'clock nnd remained open
during the balance of tho day. Thoy were
not disturbed by police officials and it Is
understood that their hearings, arranged to
tnke placo last Saturday, havo been In
definitely postponed. All the other nmuse
ments, heretofore undisturbed by tho au
thorities, opened In the morning nnd ran
all day, If their style of entertainment called
for those hours.
As only threo moro big Sundays remain
for tho amusement men to roap a harvest,
It Is understood that they will not bo mo
lested during that period, but that tho ques
tion of running nmusements will bo defin
itely settled nftcr the season Is o-or. The
only possthlo settlement which will be ac
ceptable to tho majority Interested here
will be to cither close up everything In tho
line of nmusements on Sunday or let every
thing remain open without any discrimina
tion. Although thcro havo been no ofilclnl or
ders Issued, a tacit understanding now gives
saloons nnd cabnrets a chanco to extend
their open hours until 3 a. m tnstcd of
2. ns Is called for by existing laws. This
Is only to last until tho season wanes, tho
excuso given being thnt many visitors nro
unnblo to get proper attention after theater
hours. This makes somo pcoplo laugh.
Pet poodles Lxe now carried by their fair
owners during tho evening promenade on
tho Walk. They aro handled with the samo
afTectlon ns If they were Infants, cuddled up
closo and hugged tightly. Dogs are allowed
In the promenade, If held hi leash, but tiny
poms, French poodles and toy dogs of all
tho fashionable breeds would have but little
chanco for a stroll on tho Walk during
tho August crush.

Dear Children This subject is just as interesting to BOYS as it is to
girls. It is, it is, and it IS!
I say so.
I have been wondering lately just when dolls should be spanked.
I am uncertain about the question and, therefore, I am going to ask you to
write me and tell me how you train your dolls,
I hope boys will write and tell me when THEY think dolls should be spanked,
I think boys should know such things. There are boys, too, who have dolte.
I had one myself, so there!
Of course, I don't expect as many boys to write aa gifls, but I would like to
have a little corner for the "Care and Feeding of Dolls." What do you think
about it?

The Little Brown Bear looked all around
him Mother Bear was nowhere to be seen.
He looked behind the cupboard, under the
bed, behind the refrigerator and st.ll his
mother was nowhere to be seen.
The Little Brown Bear walked outdoors
and stood for a moment looking this way
and that. He went around the house and
bak again. He looked up all the tall trees
near his home, and still did not see. Mother
She was gone I
The Little Brown Bear became very lone
some oh I so lonesome.
Where COULD his mother be !
He went back Into the house and lay
down on the couch for a few tiny minutes
in must have fallen asleep. When he
awoke the first thing he thought of was h.s
mother. M . .
Surely she had returned. Never before
had she been gone, o long.
He called, "Mother."
No one answered. It was so very (till be
could almost HEAR the stillness and he
was lonely, oh! so lonely.
What If mother should never return)
The Little Brown Bear turned over and
sobbed and sobbed.
Then be stopped ; there was a sound outside.

""7"olrun rBl," 1 conceded unwillingly
X hating to acknowledge myBelf mis
taken. Sevrance did not reply. Ho strodo past
me and found a door upon which he
knuckled a resounding summons. A olce
from within mode Instant answer:
"Well, well, now. 1 be n-comln'."
And a moment Inter u line of light showed
beneath tho lintel nnd above the threshold.
There wns tho sound of (Ingot s fumbling
with tho latch within, and then tho door
was opened, letting out n Hood of radiance.
A gnunt and sallow keeper stood framed
In tho doorway, holding a kerosene lamp
high above his head, blinking out Into tho
darkness. Tho light fell luridly on his gray
head with Its strongly cast features, upon
his shoulder and tho hugo and bony hand
which held the lamp. But below his figure
was Invisible, shrouded In obscurity. Tho
effect wns remarkable that of a head nnd
shoulders suspended In midair.
Ho stood silent for nn Instant, staring
"Well?" he mouthed Irritably. "Who bo
ye and what d'yo want?"
Sovranco moved Into tho light. "Good
evening, Thompson," ho said. "I'm Mr.
Se ranee you remember mo7"
"Lor bless us, yes I Mr. Sovrance, sir
I know ye well enough, Indeed, though 'tis
many a long day alnco I have put eyes
upon your face, sir. But I remember yo
well. What brings ye this way?"
"I wish to sco Lady Herbert. Thompson.
Sho told mo In London to meet her hero,
and I camo at onco. Will you open tho
gates and permit "
"Her leddyshlp, sir?" snld tho old keeper
incredulously. "Her leddyshlp bo not here,
sir. You've been misled."
"Come, come, Thompson," Sovranco re
monstrated In a kindly tone. "Don't bent
about tho bush. I must sco Lady Herbert,
and that Instantly."
"But she bo not at Saltacrcs, Mr. Sov
ranco. sir," the fellow protested. "No, sir
no; keep your money. It bo truth I bo
tollln'. .Why should I lie. sir? Well, sir,
If yo Insist, I will gladly drink your health,
but tho solemn truth bo that Lady Herbert
bo not at Saltacrcs."
"Xot at Saltacrcs!"
Thoro wns a profound despair In
ranco'a voice. I stepped to his side,
ping my nrm through his.
"Sho has been delayed, Tony." I
loudly. "Sho will surely arrlvo tomorrow,
win sno not, Thompson? '
Shaking his head, tho keeper blinked at
"I do not know ye, sir. But yo are with
Mr. Sevranco and his friend. So I can tell
yo tho truth; that If her leddyshlp bo
a-comtn' to Saltacrcs, not a soul hero knows

Thero was unmistakable sincerity In his
tones; neither of us doubted him nn In
stant longer. Sovranco turned away with
a groan.
"By Heaven!" hp swore angrily. "Tricked

astuto than I had thought him I, who

was nothing for It but to acknowledgo our

"Come, Tony," I said gently. "Wo may
as well glvo It up; we've followed a false
scent. Let's get back and sleep on It."
"Sleep!" ho cried scornfully. "How can

You may believe that I was as wrathful
as he. It maddened me to think with what
complacency Holzborn must havo been
laughing In his sleeve at me during tho In
terview of tho last night, when I had bold
ly asserted what ho must havo known wns
a downright falsehood that I had not
heard from Heart's Desire.
"Come," I said again, controlling my voice
with difficulty.
But Sevranco Jerked his arm away.
"Walt!" ho cried.
"For what?" I demanded.
Ho motioned with his hand, enjoining
silence. "What?" I began, and held my
tongue, for I saw that ho was listening.
Loud upon the stillness of the night,
broken ns It was only by' the dull under
tone of tho distant surf and tho sighing of
the breeze In tho leafless trees, there rose,
and gnthered momentarily In volume, a
sound ns of tho hurried breathing of a

The rapid, short, panting nolso was un
mistakable; It could herald nothing but
the approach of a gasoline motor. I con
fess that my heart leaped as I recognized
the sound, confirming, ns It seemed to, the
accuracy of our reasoning.
SovVnnce raised his head. "Was I right?"
ho demanded exultantly. "And we aro hero
ahead of them. Now they can't escape usl"
But for my own part I was uneasy In
my mind when It came to tho prospect of
confronting mine enemy there, on that lone
ly stretch of road At least I knew enough
of him to guess that he would go armed)
and not yet had the advisability of ft sim
ilar course occurred to me.
"Sevrance," I asked hurriedly for now
tho motor's strident song was loud and
clenr nnd near, "aro you armed?"
He turned to mo a face livid In the star
light. "Armed? Tho devil! Nol"
Four round nnd clarlne eyes of flamo
Jumped Into sight, scarcely flvo hundred
yards down tho Saltsea road ; for a mo
ment they seemed to hnng, vibrating, sus'
ponded In space ; nnd then I observed that
they wero growing Incredibly, with amazing
swiftness. Llghtnlngllke gleams ot polished
brass and steel seemed to play about tho
car; and tho noise of It approach grew
it swung down upon us In n marvelous
burst of speed, Hying onward In a Bmother
of fine dust. So high was the pneo that I
grasped at a fugltlvo hopo that we might
bo mistaken, after all that tho machine
wns not going to stop before Snltacrcs
But tho futllltes of that hopo was Boon
made manifest. I heard the hoarse, warn
ing honk of tho horn, nnd every bolt nnd
Joint of tho hugo machine seemed to shriek
protest ns tho brakes wero applied, bring
ing It to a total stop within thrice Its
length and directly beforo us.
FOR tho next few seconds I had my
hands full, and wns unable clearly to
comprehend what was taking placo.
Abruptly, as tho automobile camo to a halt,
I saw that It was likely to terrify our horse
Into a fit of frenzy.
Tho brute wns rearing and pawing tho
air, showing the whites of Its eyes, jumping
this way and that between the shafts of
tho fly, threatening every moment cither to
overturn tho vehicle or to brcaK looso ana
run away, so leaving us without means of
return to tho Rainbow at Saltsea Regis.
Such a catastrophe was to bo averted at
all costs. I sprang to tho bond of the ani
mal, grabbed the brldlo near tho bit, and,
by main strength and soothing words, mnn
nged to calm it Into a state of trembling
To this result I was aided by one of the
occupants of tho car, who had tho sense
or tho decency, or both, to still tho vibra
tions of the mctor.
All of this, however, hnd taken but a
mlnuto or two. When I approached Sev

To my Infinite relief tho man, passing
under tho glare of tho lamp which Thomp

showed himself an utter stranger at least,
to me. And his first words Indicated that
ho wns unncqualntcd with my companion,
who had not moved from his position by
tho lodge.
"Pardon, monsieur." The man addressed
Sovrance. speaking In English strongly
tinged with a foreign accent. "I," he con
tinued, with strained courtesy, "beg to
assure you that I am desolated to havo af
frighted your so noblo nnlmal, zo horse."
He was, then, unmistakably a French
man! Tho knowledge camo to us both,
combined with the absurdity of his open
ing remarks, with the effect of an abrupt
tumble from the subllmo to the ridiculous.
Dashing ns tho outcome was to our
hopes for they had been hopes, albeit com
mingled with the gravest apprehensions
neither Sevranco nor I could forbear laugh
ing. This errant Frenchman, bowing and
scraping and fumbling with his goggles and
his motoring cap, presented a figure Ir
resistibly comical no less so than proved
his words to us.
Sovranco gasped, in time to avert tho
other's threatened resentment, manifest In
tho stiffening or nta pose: "You nro en
tirely excusable, monsieur. Our noble ani
mal, the horse. Is no moro than a country
plug, and I don't bellovo he would have

"Many thanks," minced the fellow. "I

his mask and choked upon some following
words; a second later he emerged, bare
headed, smiling and bowing Inimitably. A
slight, pallid little man he proved, with
small eyes, very quick, and an Insignificant
"Permit me," he said, "to Introduce my

Stiller, who range In age from 9 years to 9

by the following extract from her letter,
an account of a birthday picnic given in
honor of Mae Thelss, one of her little
"Well, now for our picnic. We had a
very beautiful day; It ralned,a little In the
afternoon, but we didn't mind that, be
cause there was a pavilion near us, and
we were safe In there till the rain stopped.

umtcu noma m nve minutes after 6.
"The children certainly did have a
glqrlous time. They had a grand pile of
white Band to play In, and the small chll
dren did enjoy It, too. There were 16 of
us on the picnic. I didn't have any trouble
at all w.th them;Jhey behaved beautifully
"Lots of funny things happened. We
sent two boys after a pall of water, and
they had to go a little distance, and when
they came back they carried their blouses
and had their heads wet. They said they
were In swimming, but I knew differently
because they cannot swim. Two girls and
two boys had some angry words, but we
soon settled that, for I told them If I caught
any of them quarreling again they would
have to pay a fine of 2 cents to the Rain
bow Club. I enjoyed myself quite as much
as the children."
