I'rom a height of 1,500 feet, the
Lincoln highway near the Alamito

of Feony park, presented a watery
panorama. The flooded area appeared
like a wide river winding from the
north through cornfield and grazing
lands for miles, gradually finding its

Big lakes appeared at various spots
in the lowlands. Numerous side
roads were inundated for hundreds
of rods, it appeared, and on several
farms buildings were seen isolated by
the water. West Pacific street and
the lowlands on both sides near the

teached the level of the bridge.
As Pilot llopson did three thrill

acute dilation of the heart of the re-

A complete new family of 14
Buick model for 19JJ, including
two new touring sedans of both the
four and six-cylinder type, incorpor
ating many body and mechanical
changes, was announced Moiul.iv by
the Buick Motor company of flint,
The new models incorporate all
the old features of Buick dependa
bility with the valve-in-head motor,
but are so designed as to give
added comfort in riding and a better
The spring suspension in the new
models gives extremely easy riding
On the closed models several
things have been done to prevent
the noies common to enclosed
types. The bodies are made in one
in'rce panels, eliminating joint and
.body noise. The window frames
are built with rounded edges and
new round corners and equipped,
with anti-rattle catches which prac
tically stop all noinc.
On the six-cylinder touring sedan,
standard equipment includes a rigid
trunk rack and trunk with nickel
guard rails on the rear of the bodies.
To give the driver maximum com.
fort the length of the gear shifting
lever has been increased.
An improved transmission lock
has been made part of regular
equipment. This will reduce theft
insurance rates 20 per cent. Changes
in the car have also altered Buick's
standing in fire insurance and raised
it from class D to class A, approved
by the National Underwriters' association.
Marriage of Barry Wicklow
By RUBY M. AYRES
(Centlnoed From Tester day.)
He broke off, breathing hard, only
to rush on again in stumbling apol
ogy. "I don't mean that. I don't
know what I'm saying. I'm sorry,
but you're driving me mad. You
can't be so cruel. For God's sake,
She wrenched her hand from his.
"I don't believe you ever really cared
for me. I ve been the fool all along.
I ought to have listened to Uncle
"Damn him!" said Barry, furiously.
"At any rate, he'd rather have died
than told me the lies you have," she
Barry dropped into a chair. He
had never felt so sick and ashamed
in his life. He was angry, too, furi
ously angry, because he had been so
sure of her forgiveness.
He did not realize that it was be
cause she cared so much that she
was so bitterly resentful. He did
not understand that if she had loved
him less she would have found it
more easy to forgive.
"Well, what do you propose to
do?" he asked.
"I shall go to my cousin s tonight.
She will have me."
Barrv cried out sharply: 'I wont
have vou there! She's no fit com
panion for you. I'm your husband,
and I forbid you to go!"
Her eyes Hashed. You re only my
husband because you cheated me. I
should never have married you it
I had known the truth. You know
that. I shalt do as I like. Nothing
you can say will stop me. I am
going to my cousin s.
He stood irresolute tor a moment;
then: "Very well," he - said, quietly,
"I 'suppose you don't object to my
taking you there?"
You can come it you like, sue
He flushed crimson. 1 don t want
to inflict myself upon you. No doubt
you would rather go alone."
She twisted her hands nervously.
"I I haven't got any money," she
told him in a whisper.
There -was something of the old
childishness in her voice again, and
it melted Barry's anger instantly. He
went over to her, though now he
made no attempt to touch her.
Foreive me. Hazel, he said,
humbly. "I'm not really such a bad
chap. I I'd give my soul to undo
what's gone, but I can't. I can only
try and make up for it in the future.
Try and forgive me, Hazel."
For an instant it seemed that she
wavered. Then her face hardened.
"I can never forgive you for hav
ing lied to me. 1 shall never believe
anything you say again.
Barrv strode across tne room ana
flung the door open.

The short drive across London to
Delia Bentley's flat was a nightmare
to Barry Wicklow.
He sat opposite his wite, his arms
folded, his eyes staring straight in
front of him.
He never once glanced in her di
rection, but all the same he was
acutely conscious of her every move
ment. He knew that more tnan once
she wiped away tears that would well
to her eyes, and he swore to himself
that he would give Norman the most
thorough hiding a man ever had. He
tried to comfort his sore heart with
the conviction taht Hazel -would have
to forgive him sooner or later; that
it was impossible for a man's wife to
go on indefinitely ignoring him; that
in the end she would think it over
and be sorry.
As the cab turned into the rather
dull square where Delia's flat was
Barry stole a look at his wife, but her
face was averted, and he could only
see the outline of a pale cheek, and
'a little lock of hair.
He stifled a sigh as the taxi drove
up to the curb and stopped.
Barry opened the door and held his
hand to Hazel, but she ignored him.
She passed him and went up the
steps to the house and through the
open door into the stone-floored hall.
Barry followed silently. He stood
beside her in the lift, so close to her
that their arms were touching; but
she did not speak, and they went on
and to the door of Delia's flat.
Here Hazel turned and faced him.
"You need not come any further,"
she said. "Good-bye."
Her voice was hard and she did not
raise her eyes above the white flower
in his buttonhole. Ihe flower had
died now. It hung its scented head
forlornly against Barry's coat as if
ashamed of having assisted, even in
such a small way, at his disastrous
The color flamed to Barry's face.
He began to answer angrily, then
"Very well," he said, grimly. "Per
haps you will let me know what story
you intend to tell your coiusin, so
that I can repeat it to any of my
friends who are curious."
"I shall tell her that I found out
I didn't like you after all That is
the truth," she said, definantly.
Barry laughed. He was not going
to believe this, at all events, but for
the moment at least he supposed it
would be wisdom to humor her.
"Very well." he said, lightly. "If
that is a good enough yarn for you,
it is for me; and your mother?"
Hazel's lips quivered. "I will write
to her. You need not trouble your
self about my people."
"Very well; and with regard to
money." Barry began, diffidently,
"anyhting you want, of course"
"I shall never want anything of
yours," she told him. "I only want
to forget that I ever knew you." The
words sounded convincing, and Barry
"Then it is useless for me to stay
any longer, I suppose," he said,
stiffly. "If you should want me at
any time I know it's not remotely
possible, but just in case a letter, or a
phone message to my rooms will al
ways find me."
She might not have heard for all
the notice she took. She had turned
away and had pressed the bell on
Delia's front door. Barry waited till
he heard steps in the narrow passage
inside. Then he went back down the
It was Delia herself who opened
the door. She was wearing a tea
gown of her favorite golden color,
and was smoking a cigaret. She stared
at. Hazel for a moment without
speaking; then: "Goodness gra
cious!" she ejaculated. "What in the
world? Surely you haven't -quar

Maifl nodded'. hc pushed past
her cousin and went on into the
gaudy little tilting room.
She broke down completely then
and sobbed, with her pretty 'face
tuned in Delia's golden cushions.
Delia stood by frowning for a mo
ment. Thru, not unkindly, she put a
hand on Hazel's shoulder.
"You'll ruin those cuhion," she
said. "Do turn off the water works
and tell me what lias happened, and
where is Barry?"
1 lael 4t up, Her face was all
flushed and tear-stained, her hair dis
heveled. "I hate him," she said. "I
wih I'd never seen him."
Delia sat down on the arm of a
chair and slared it her pretty feet in
their high-heeled shoes. "It's a bit
soon," she said at last. "What hat
happened since I left you?"
"I've found him out," Hazel
answered, sobbing. "He didn't really
want to marry me. It was all Oh,
I wish I'd never seen him."
Delia threw her cigaret away and
selrctcd a fresh one.
"Humph! Well. I'm not altogether
surprised," she said, calmly. "He's
a bit of a goer from what I've heard
about him. But on your wedding
day! It's a bit rapid! What have
you heard exactly?"
Hael told her story disconnected
ly. She was longing for sympathy,
but Delia's nature was not much in
clined that way. She was just a
practical woman with a streak of sur
prising sentimentality in her. She
listened stoically enough, and when
Hazel had finished she laughed.
"It sounds rather like a melo
drama," she said. "But. anyway,
from what I know of the Wicklow's,
you've married the best of them, my
dear. That Normin!" She broke off
with a shrug of her shoulders.
Hazel looked up. "Do you know
him?" she asked.
"Do I?" the elder girl echoed. "Do
I not! He was hanging round one
of our girls for weeks. It was
through him that I met your Barry."
"You mean that you knew Barry,
too? Before that day down home
before that day at Bedmund?"
"Yes. He came behind at the the
ater one night. I knew I had met
him before somewhere, but for the
moment I couldn't recall his name.
It came afterwards, and I asked him
why he was traveling incog., so to
peak. I know now, of veurc"
Hacl frit as if hrr idol were fall
ing to pieces at her tort. What
rite had she got to discover about
him. she wondered lieplcly.
"I should forgive him if I were
you," Deli said after moment.
"They're a good family, the Wirk
lows, and you can make his people
take you up if you play your cards
properly. They've got tuns ot
money, loo. You'll be very silly if
you Kt him of i scot free."
Hazel did not understand. She sat
with her hands clasped in hrr lap, her
eyes full of unshed tears. She could
only think of Barry as lie had been
that night down at the farm when
he told her he loved hrr. He seem
ed an altogether different man from
the one from whom she had just
"Anyway, if you won't ro back to
him, what are you going to do?"
Delia asked after a moment.
Hazel looked up. "I thought I
could stay with you, for a little while
at least. I don't want to go back
home. L'ncle Joe would be so angry,
and 1 don'.t feel that I can face him."
"Slay here!" Delia echoed, sharp
ly. "Heavens! what shall I do with
yon here? You haven't any money,

said; "but I suppose I can work,
There was a little silence.
Delia paced up the room and came

"you'd better make it up with your
husband. After all. he may be quite
all right in the future. Give him a
chance. Gracious I I thought he was
keen enough on you by the way he
looked at you. Give him a chance,
and then if you find it isn't going
Hazel drew away from her. "I'll
never go back to him," she said, ob
stinately. Delia frowned. "Very well, you
can stay here for the present, and
I'll see what's to be done. You'd
better write to your mother or some
body and say where you are, or else
they'll all be having forty fits." She
looked at the girl consideringly.
"You're quite fretty, of course,"
she said, dispassionately. "I might
get Greaves to give you a walking

Hael echoed the words, not un
derstanding. "A walking-oil part?"
"On the stage, silly! A part in the
chorus. You won't have anything to
do except smilr," she added, im
patiently, Hacl's eye glowed. "Oh. 1
should loe ill I've always longed
to go on the stage,"
Delia made a grimace "That
shows your ignorance," she said,
tartly. "However, we'll see, but I'm
not going to promise anything. It

There are other men in the world
beside Barry Wicklow.
Delia rang for tea and went off to

the smart maid to fetch her a taxi.
Presently she came back dressed for
Hazel thought she looked beautiful.
She admired the too-smart costume
and rakish hat. The clothes she had
chosen with such pride for her wed
ding seemed dowdy beside them. It
seemed ages and ages ago since she
had driven off from this very flat
with Delia to be married, and yet it
had only bctti that morning!
"I thought you had your own car."
she ventured presently -when Delia
started to fume because a taxi was
so long coining. "Wasn't that your
car you came to Bedmund in ?"
Delia laughed. "I wish it had
been. It's Laurie Hulbert's. You
don't know Laurie? No! Well, you
needn't hanker to. He's as mean as
