Seeking refuge from a band of half

a notion store kept by Mrs. Leslie, a

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN WIRE
TAPPERS AT WORK?
In addition to depicting the hazards
encountered by Helen Holmes, the
daring heroine of the Hazards of
Helen Railroad Series, "The Rail
roader's Bravery," the newest epi
sode of this series, shows how wire
tappers conduct their nefarious busi-
ness. The story will be released Sat
urday, May 29.
The revival of the "sport of kings"
has naturally caused a renewal of ac
tivity on the parts of the men who
depend upon horse racing for their
livelihood. The wire tappers have
long been a thorn in the side of the
police and a constant warfare is car
ried on between the two.
Miss Holmes plays an important
role in bringing one band of wire tap
pers to justice. The men are finally
rounded up after an exciting chase in
which Miss Holmes? clinging to the
cowcatcher of a locomotive which is
pursuing an electric speeder on which
the crooks are fleeing, catches up to
the crooks and forces them to sur
render. The details of this story were
supplied to Kaleni by a detective who
has brought to bay some of the most
notorious wiretappers in the country.
