The captain of the cruiser Albany had his men scour the country round about, but —as had ever been the case •with Hernandez and his nimble-footed crew—without result. "At any rate," he said, "the rascal* have run away—they've probably shown us their heels for all time. You go to Chantillo, Miss Ilington. You lake that one-horse train here —we'll escort you to the train. Over at Chantillo lies the Missouri, a first class battleship. I'll give you a note to her commander. He'll see you safe on board the South California boat." Neal and a small guard of marines constituted Annette's escort. Annette laughed when she saw the station —laughed more when she saw the train. It consisted of the sorriest engine she had ever seen—also the most diminutive and battered coach. "Look here," said Neal to Annette, "come inside the station. I want to show you something." Annette knew . . . inside she broke down and cried like a child. "It's good-by now, Neal." she said, ;"I don't know what I'm going to do 'without you. ... I feel like •, . . almost going back . . "By George," said Neal, "I wish f. . . but no. You'll stick it out. I •know you will. I'm sure. But, if it's "Look—Seel" Exclaimed the Brute, tough on you—think of me. I feel like chucking up my job . . A tin horn blew outside. "W-what's that?" cried Annette. Mrs. Hardin and Joe Welcher rushed into the station. "The train —the train," they cried. They were quite right. The engi neer -was already pulling his rusty lev er. The train actually was starting up, station-try though it had seemed. "Go ahead little one," said Neal, "good luck." Half a mile farther down the track, out of the jungle crept two figures— each with gun in hand, each with a black mask upon his face. Across the track they piled a tree or two —these trees had been plucked up by the roota by one of these masked men. After completing this self-appointed task, they crept back into the jungle and waited patiently, (s, Finally one of the men prodded the other. "Now," he commanded, "here she comes." A faint tin horn whistle was heard around the curve. The fast mail of the Chantillo line approached. She approached, but seeing the obstruc tion on the track, she hesitated, halted, came to a full stop. The two masked men leaped upon the engine and held up the crew with their ever-ready guns. Hernandez stepped into the car be hind. He fired three shots. He aimed at no one. The shots had their ef fect—on two persons at least. Joe Welcher ducked at once. Mrs. Har din followed suit. v No one was hit. Annette alone retained her nerve. "So," she said fearlessly, "it's you again. And where is your charming friend, Miss Irene Courtier?" "Brute," cried Hernandez, throwing oft his mask, "bring those two men here." The Brute brought them. "Take the bell cord," said Hernandez to the train crew, "and tie this young girl up." Hernander, still with his gun on guard, bent over the girl. He piunged his hand into her breast, and with a Jerk tore the chamois bag from her neck.

CUNNINGHAM ON STATE'S HIGHWAYS Makes Interesting Address to People at Johnstown on Occasion of His Visit Special to The Telegraph Johnston, Pa., Nov. 11.—State High way Commissioner R. J. Cunningham was the guest of Johnstown and Cambria county to-day the occasion being "Cunningham Day," set aside to honor him. The commissioner was entertained at Johnstown by the Johnstown Chamber of Commerce at which he delivered an address. In opening his remarks Commis sioner Cunningham paid a high tribute to Governor Brumbaugh, who, he de clared, was a "good roads enthusiast" of the most pronounced type. The commissioner then discussed the re organization of the State Highway De partment, made necessary by the fail ure of the Legislature to provide suffi cient funds for the construction of new highways. He called attention to the fact that the Sproul Highway System, as at present constituted, comprised 10,200 miles of highways. Inasmuch as funds for construction purposes are not available, It had be come necessary, he said, so to con duct the department as to provide for tho adequate maintenance of this vast mileage. The commissioner then compared the Pennsylvania highway situation with that of other States where adequate funds have been provided for the proper construction of mod ern highways. He cited the appro priation made by the 1915 Legislature to the State Highway Department and told how it was divided and what funds were actually available for maintenance work. In this connec tion the commissioner declared that It was the policy of the department to maintain the improved roads as well as the earth roads. The commissioner surprised his hearers with the statement that since he assumed office the State Highway HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH Department Improved more than 8,- 262 miles of the 10,200 miles of the State Highway System. Of this mileage 1,880 are stone or other hard surfaced roads; 575 are flint, gravel and shale and 5,824 are earth roads. He called attention to the fact that 397 miles of this maintenance was re surfacing work on roads already con structed. Urging the cos-operation of county commissioners in contributing the county's share towards road improve ment, the Highway Commissioner dwelt on the fact that it would not be possible for his department to do much in counties where this co-opera tion was withheld. He declared that the funds collected for the registra tion and licensing of automobiles should go to the department. For merly, he said, this was the case, but the last Legislature neglected to pass a bill specifically appropriating these moneys to the State Highway Depart ment. The commissioner then dwelt on the efforts he Is making to enforce the automobile law, with particular reference to those who drive reck lessly. In conclusion Commissioner Cun ningham reviewed local conditions in Cambria county and told his hearers what had better bo done to improve the highways in and around Johns town. MANY STUDENTS SPEAK SPANISH AND POTUGESE State College, Pa., Nov. 11. Be lieving that the Spanish and Portugese languages are destined to have Im portant places in American commer cial life, many students at the Penn sylvania State College are giving much attention to the study of these tongues. There are 165 freshmen enrolled in the Spanish classes while twelve of the first-year men have chosen Portugess. The course in Portugese was added to the curriculum at Penn State only this year, and there are but few colleges in the country offering a similar course. The number of students elect ing Spanish is far in advance of the previous years, thero being 85 more than in 1914, and an increase of 125 over the class of 1913. Joseph \V. Croweil, a recent graduate of Haver ford College, is in charge of the two popular courses. A Spanish club-is being organized among the students, and that language will be the only medium of communication at the club meetings. I NOVEMBER 11, 1915. TO FUT ON FLESH AND INCREASE WEIGHT Good Advice For Thin People "I'd certainly give most anything to be able to gain a few pounds and stay that way," declare many thin men and women. Such a result is usually not impossible despite past failures. Most thin people are victims of malnu trition, a condition which prevents the latty elements of food from being taken up by the blood as they are when the powers of nutrition are nor mal. Instead of getting into the blood much of the fat and flesh producing elements stay in the intestines until they pass from the body as waste. To correct this condition and to pro duce a healthy, normal amount of fat the flesh-making food elements must be so prepared in the digestive proc-, esses that the blood will accept and distribute them throughout the body. There is a preparation called Sargol, which works on this basis and which is sold by nearly every druggist on a positive guarantee of weight increase or money back. Hundreds have testi fied to weight increase from its use. Sargol does not of itself make fat, but Is simply a combination of ingre dients of acknowledged merit that, taken with meals, seems to better enable the digestive organs to separate the fattening elements of the food and to prepare them in a form which tho blood can readily absorb. Sargol comes In tablet form. Is pleasant and easy to take and Its action Is perfectly natural and harmless. Sargol Is sold by Geo. A. Gorgas and druggists every where, who are authorized to refund the full purchase price If weight in crease Is not obtained. NOTE—Sargol is recommended only as a flesh builder, and while it has produced excellent results In cases of nervous Indigestion and general stom ach disorders, care should be taken by those using It who do not want to In crease weight.—Advertisement.
