GOLD SPURS AS HEIRLOOMS
German Gypsies Astonished Berlin
Dealers When They Made Offer
to Sell Them.
Silver-spurred cowpunchers of Amer
ica’s Golden West, the rough-riders;
of the Pendleton round-up and Chey

with envy if they could see the trap
pings of German gypsies who have a<
camp near Berlin.
These gypsies recently created aj
furore In police circles by offering
heavy solid gold spurs for sale In shops
which buy old gold and other precious
metal. The metal dealers advised the
police and sought their aid in finding
out how the wanderers came to have
such valuable trappings.
An Investigation showed that all the
members of the band had similar spurs
and had owned them for generations.
They were heirlooms of the tribe and
the owners had decided to part with
some of them for the purpose of rais
ing more money to engage in horse
trading on a larger scale than their

The Raggedys and Betsy Bonnet
String were very glad that they had
discovered that the Teo ack quee's
brass suspender button was a magical
one. Raggedy Ann had wished a
lovely Ice cream soda water feuntaln
right In the Toe ack quee's front
room as seen as she had the magical
brass suspender button In her hands.
"If I ware you, Mr. Too ack quee,”
Raggedy Ann said, "I would sew the
little magical brass suspender button
on your clothes. Then you would
have It with you all the time, and I'll
bet that any time you made a wish,
the wish would come true!”
“Do you really think so?” the Teo
ack quee asked.
“Indeed 2 do!" Raggedy Ann replied,
“But the,clothes you wear are not the
right kind to have suspender buttons,
on! You must let me wish you a nice
Raggedy Ann could make very nice
wishes and I guess they were very
nice because they were unselfish
wishes. Be she wished a lovely new
suit for the Too ack quee and there
it was already on him. The nice new
suit was of velvet with silver buckles
at the knees and everything, even
pockets. “And I will sew the suspend
er button on for you!" Betsy Bonnet
Not on* of them heard the door open
. ever so softly.
When the little magical brass sus
pender button had been sewn on the
To© ack quee's pretty new suit, the
Too ack quee said, "Now I shall make
a wish and see If it comes true! Let’s
see! What shall I wish for?" He was
trying to think ©f something very nice
to wish for the Raggedys and Betsy
Bonnet String and he tried so hard, he
had to shut his eyes. And the Rag
gedys and Betsy Bennet String tried
to help him think so hard, they shut
their eyes too, so not one qf them
heard the door open ever Bd softly,
nor did they see the queer little old
woman tip toe In and snip the brass
suspender button from Too ack quee’s
new suit and slip out of the door
Soon, however, the Too ack qUee
opened his eyes and laughed, “I have
thought of a nice wish now!”
"What is It?" Raggedy Ann and
Raggedy Andy and Betsy Bonnet
“I wish,” said the Too ack quee
that Betey Bonnet String and Rag
gedy Ann had lovely new dresses and
that Raggedy Andy had a new pair of
pants and a new waist!" But not a
single magical thing happened and
they still had on the same clothes
they had before the Too ack quee
made the wish.
“It doesn’t work!" the Too aek quee
said as started to cry.
"Maybe I sewed the suspender but
ton on too tight!" Betsy Bonnet String
said, "If it la sewed on too tight, may
be that stops the magic. Let me seel ’’
"Why!” the Raggedys and Betsy
Bonnet String cried when the Too ack
quee turned around, “The little mag
ical brass suspenier button has been
snipped right off and is gone!”
“What became of it?” the Too ack
"Look in your magic mirror!” Rag
gedy Andy said to the Too ack quee.
And when the Too ack quee looked In
his magic mirror, he saw just how the
queer little old woman had snipped
off the magic suBpender button.
"We will get on our bicycles and
go to her house right away!" said
Raggedy Ann. "And get your button
back for you!”

The Santiago river In Mexico is the
longest In that country. It rises near
Mexico City and flows northwest to the
sea, emptying near San Bias. In the
canyons 2,000 feet below the level of the
surrounding plain, the Indian farmers
find a Bupertropic climate along tho river
^ banks where they plant their crops. The
climate here forces vegetation as might
an equatorial hothouse.
It made the Too aok quee very sad
to loae his little magical brass sus- f
ponder button, and I guess It would *
make almost anyone ead if they had
lost a nice magical suspender button
like the Too ack quee owned. For
with his suspender button, he could
have wlshee come true, and that of
course Is very nice.
The Too ack quo# looked In his
magic mirror and saw that when he
and his friends had their eyes shut
making a wish, the queer little old
woman had slipped into the Too ack
quee's housq and had snipped the
suspender button right off the Too
ack quee's clothes without him
“We will get on our bicycles and
go to her house right away!” said
Raggedy Ann. “For we must get the
Too ack quae’s magical «uspender
button back for him!”
SO they all hopped upon their little
bicycles and rode through the deep,
deep woods until tfcey came to /he
tree where the queer little old wom
The Too ack quee knocked upon
the tree trunk. The tree home of
the funny little old woman did net
have any door; It was a magic tree
which opened and closed for her
without showing any place where
she might have gene through
“Blump, blump, blump!” the Too
ack quee knocked with a ctlck.
"Who It is knocking my tree home
with a stick?” the queer little old
woman asked from inside.
"It’s me, the Too ack queo, and
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy
and Betsy Bennet String!” the Too
ack quee replied. “And we want you
to give me back my little bras* sus
"Ha!” the queer little old woman
replied. “Just as seen as I sew the
little brass suspender button on my
clothes, I shall make a wish and then
you will be sorry! Tou had better
run home Just as fast as you can!”
"We shan't run a speck!” Raggedy
Andy cried. “Besides we came on
our magic bicycles and we didn’t
even run here, we rode!"
‘Then you had better ride home
as fast as yeu can! I almost have
the little brass suspender button
sewed on and If you are out there
whe» I am finished I shall make you
feel sorry, that’s what!1'
“Maybe we had better run home!”
the Too ack quee said.
"What will you do, just you tell
us that, Missus?” Betsy Bonnet
“Just as soon a* I make a wish, I
shall wish that all of you change
into little squealy pigs! That’s
"Maybe we had better run home!”
the Too ack quee said.
"fro, sir!" Raggedy Ann stamped
her foot. "I shall stay here and catch
the little old woman when she comes
So It was decided that the Too ack
quee and Betsy Bonnet String should
ride home while the Raggedys wait
ed at the tree to catch the little old
woman. Soon the tree opened and
the little old woman came out, but
she didn’t see the Raggedys. "I wish
they would all change into pigs any
how!” the woman sai<l But the
Raggedys didn’t change one speck.
"The magic suspender button doesn’t
work for her!” Raggedy Andy whis
pered as he caught^the old woman
and held her while Raggedy Ann
snipped the button off. Then they
hopped on their bicycles and rode
towards the Too ack quee’s home as
fast as they could go.

Proposal for 75 Years Truce
Made Part of Germany’s
Note to Be Sent Allies
BY KARL H. VON WIEGAND,
Universal Service Correspondent.
Special Cable Dispatch.
Berlin, April 30.—Germany holds |
out the olive branch to France in the i
form of a mutual peace pact to en
dure for three generations, in the
new German reparations offer which
goes to the Allies Tuesday night.
This proposition, originally made
by the executive committee of the
United German Socialist party to the
delegates of the Allied Socialists in
their recent conference in Berlin, has
been taken up by the cabinet after
much deliberation. It has been writ
ten into the final draft of the new
document designed to end tthe hatred
and hostility between the two na
Cabinet Approves Note.
The cabinet Tuesday evening fin
ally passed upon the note that is to bo
sent to the Allies, and to Ambassador
Wiedfelt at Washington, who will in
formally acquaint Secretary Hughes
with its contents.
Some translations of the note have
already been made. It is not be
lieved that Minister of Finance
Hermes, who returned lata Monday
night from sick leaves and whose ap
proval is necessary, will Insist upon
any vital changes.
Thirty billions is the "present
value” of the reparations offer, but
with the interest this can be read to
mean between 35 and 40 billion
marks—this figure remaining the
same as in the first outline of the
uoudttui un nanways.

circles that the offer of the German
