CONVICTS PULL THRILLER IN
ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE
Joliet, III., Oct. 2. One of the
thrillers of "Monte Cristo" was par

basket had been loaded into a wagon
by a "trusty," who was to drive the
wagcw? outside the walls.

Then he added sharply:
"The first thing that investigation
should do is to turn the searchlight
on the Rockefellers themselves."
The only two great European cap
itals that have never been occupied
by a foreign foe are London and Pe-trograd.
