He I walked through a little village and found himself upon a winding macadam road. There he found a marker that told him Now York Was only 31 miles. He started resolutely down the road. He walked a mile. A single car whi/./.ed past him without even slackening speed. He walked another mile and an ancient car came chugging along. Sam stepped out as far into the road as he dared and waved violently. Brakes squealed and the car stopped. "For the love of Pete, mister," Sam cried, "give me a Ji7t. My dogs are killing me." The driver of the ancient jalopy was a white-haired man [crowding 70. He said, "Get in!" I Wearily, Sam got into the old | car. "Where you going, mister?" Jlhe driver said, "God's country, New York.** ! The elderly man smiled slight- •ly. "First time I ever heard New York called that. You don't like the country?" Sam shuddered. "Not me." i "Nothing much ever happens tout in the country," the driver jwcnt on. "In the city there's ell sorts of trouble, all the time. I had the radio on just a minute ago and they were telling about some fella back in Pccksklll who • broke out of jail. A real clcsper- • ndo. shnol-'cm-up typo." Sam jwished that he could shrink to jhnlf his sixc. "Yep," the old man 'went mi, "a real killer, they say, ,Tho police are setting up road- Jhlot'Us all around." i "Roadblocks!" exclaimed Sam in consternation. I The driver pointed ahead. "Wouldn't be a bit surprised If thai was one up there." A New York Stole highway patrol car was slewed across the toad, blocking moil of *. Th« driver began braking his ancient car. A state trooper waved him down. Sam made a complete mental surrender. He knew he was going back to Peekskill—and this time he would remain there. He was gone, finished, done. "What's the trouble, Carl?" the old man was saying to the trooper. "Usual stuff, Judge," the trooper replied courteously. "Jailbreak. Some two-gun man they picked up shot his way out of the Peekskill jail.' 7 Oh, they'll get him, all right," said the man beside Sam. "I'm sure they will," replied the state trooper. He scarcely looked at Sam as he waved the d river to continue on past the police car. * • • FOR s ful! half mile Sam could not say a word, then he asked weakly, "You're a judge, mister?" "A justice of the peace, that's 1," was the cheerful reply. "I've lived up here in the country all my life and the neighbors wanted me to have a little income in my old age, I guess, so they voted me in for an cosy job, Nice chap, that trooper. Most of 'em are good boys." 'Sure," said Sam, "they sure are." He was silent again and the ittlc car ate up the winding back road miles, After a while the car .urncd into a parkway and picked ip some speed. But finally, as hey were nearing Yonkers, the tistice of the peace said, "I guess ought to tell you, neighbor, the iolicc don't approve of hitch- likcrs out here and they've been arresting a lot of people. But Yonkers is as far as 1 go. If you're in ft hurry to get dome, I hink you'd better take the sub-j way at Yonkers. I'll drive you to! L Uh, could you use • quarter?" j He tendered the coin to Sam. The latter took it "Judge," he said, with deep emotion, "you're the first honest-lo-gosh human being I've met in a year of Sundays. You—you almost make up for what I went through today." WHEN Johnny re-entered the Forty-Fifth Street Hotel, the po- icemen were still on duty in the lobby. And Lieutenant Madigan was still sitting glumly in a far corner. Johnny waved to him and went up to his room. Entering, he went into the bathroom and retrieved the sock weighted with the dimes and pennies he had taken from Jess Carmichael the Third's limping goose bank. "It's here," he muttered. "It's t to be here." He dumped the coins on the bed and began to examine them individually. He wished he had a magnifying glass, but his eyes were good and he studied the coins . wiih elaborate care. Most of therp were worn; a scratch or mark would have shown up readily on them. There was none. We counted the feathers in the Indian's headpiece on the pennies. They all matched. He stud- cd the milling around the edges. There was nothing out of place, lie turned the coins over and studied them. He separated the dimes from he pennies, studied each in turn, A half hour went by and he was no nearer the solution. "It's here," he exclaimed aloud. 'Jess Carmichael was no smarter ,han I am." He had the coins lined up according to their age. The oldest, ic discovered, was an 1860 penny. The oldest dime was an 1862. The next dime was dated 1865. ' Idly, he pushed the two rows of coins together, the oldest Hme, the penny, then—a thought struck him and lie moved swiftly, ;ning up the coins according to .he dates, regardless of their vfllue. The coins' dales now rnn continuously 1800, through ta 939, "That's ill" be " cried. 'Thal'i UP' (To MOVING? Local or Long Distance CALL 3-8928 Beckham Moving & Storage Co. flOfl N.
