I The ruling of the superintendent of i public grounds, Col C. W. Ridley, ad mits children with certificates from their teachers or employers to the beach during the afternoon hours. Col. Ridley attempted to lessen the severity of the order last night by saying that in extreme cases where tne children wre employed (at home, a note from their parents might be sufficient, but that such cases would have to be taken up ;with him personally. ! "Of course, we want the children ito enjoy the beach to the utmost." I he sa id, "but if we admit them in j the 'ternoons they would crowd ;fbe place and make it uncomfort able for the older swimmers " Ridley Tries to Explain. Col.

Auf. 5.?With the waters of the Atlantic Ocean swash ing over his head, Simon Lake, sub marine inventor, expects to excavate the bottom of Long Island Sound, off Port Morris, and try to salvage $5,000,000 gold bullion from the treasure chests of the H. M. S. Huz zar. The treasure has nestled on the bottom for 119 years. The story of the Huzzar and its [ buried gold is as romantic as any sea yarn ever spun by Jules Verne or Robert Louis Stevenson. It be gins at a date when pirates roved the Atlantic, and promises to end with a submarine climax. The British warship Huzzar. was launch ed about the year 1760. The last trip of the Huzzar was when she started to the American colonies in 1780. carrying a cargo of golden wealth in her hold. In making the waters of the harbor, j at a time when Hell date was not i adequately charted, she struck a ? rock and stove a hole in her bot J torn. She tried to make shore, but ' didn't, and sank oft Port Morris, j The treasure, which was to have : paid off the soldiers of the crown. , sank with her. Thirty years ago a company was 'organized on Staten Island to at tempt the salvage of the Huzzar 'gold. The most accomplished diver of the day spent much time in the water. He succeeded in bringing up tL hard oak rib of the ship and a few coins, and then was forced to give up his efforts. Police News ? ? t-1 .. * / Betkeada Offers Reward.
