Concern as a Human
Towanda, Pa.. Nov. 18.—The loud
and continued whiuneving of a horse
attracted people to the barn on the
Drysdnle farm in l-eroy township last

Drysdale. wealthy owner of the farm,

He had fallen dead while currying
the horse, and the faithful animal,
which had been on the farm for 25
years, stood perfectly still so as not to
step on the body, and whinneyed until
members of the family came.
The horse had to lie led out of the
stall before the body could be moved,
and every move the animal made

Ihin Men and Women
Here's a Safe Easy Way to Gain 10 to
3© lbs. of Solid. Healthy,
Thin, nervous, undeveloped men and
women everywhere are heard to say, "J
< an't understand why I do not get fat.
I eat plenty of good, nourishing food."
The reason .is just this: You cannot get
fat, no matter lidw much you eat, unless
your digestive organs assimilate the fat
making elements of your food instead
nf passing them out through the body
What is needed is a means of gently
urging the assimilative functions of the
stomach and intestines to absorb the
oils and fats and hand them over to the
blood, where they may reach the
starved, shrunken, run-down tissues and
build them up. The thin person's body
is like a dry sponge—eager and hungry
tor the fatty materials of which it is
being deprived by the failure of the
alimentary canal to take them from the
food. The best way to overcome this
sinful waste of flesh building elements
and to stop the leakage of fats is to use
the recently discovered regen
erative force that is recommended so
highly bv physicians here and abroad.
Take a little Sargol tablet with every
meal and notice how quickly vour
cheeks fill out and rolls of firm, healthy
desh are deposited over your bodv, cov
ering each bony angle and projecting
point. O. A.'Gorgas and other good
druggists have Hargol. or can get it
from their wholesaler, and will refund
your money if you are not satisfied
with the gain in weight it produces as
stated on the guarantee in each pack
age. It is inexpensive, easy to take and
Caution:—\\ hilo Hargol has produced
remarkable results in overcoming nerv
ous dyspepsia and general stomach
troubles, it should not be taken unless
you are willing to gain ten pound* or
wore, for it is a wonderful flesh-builder
HARRTKBUIiC. STAR-INDEPENDENT, WEDNESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 18, 1914.
1 Heiketh Pru h.rd
November was audibly sympathetic. '
and so was I.
"Tben one day this notion caiue to j
mt. I planned it all out and got Hank i
to help. (I'd have asked you. dear Joe. j
tf you'd been there.* Come uow, Joe.
Ton must see bow good a pupil 1 was ,
to yon and how much 1 remembered
of your tracking, which I used to both
er you to teach me."
"You're right smart at it. Miss Vir- |
"I arranged the broken rod. and
Hank and his brother carried uie to 1
the canoe. Tben they got out on the
other side of the lake, and 1 paddled !
up near to the rock by the waterfall
to put the police or whoever should be i
sent after me off my trail. I'm real |
hurt I didn't deceive you. .Toe."
"But you did right through—till yon
come to Black lake." Joe assnred her.
"But you did not recognize me tben :" ]
she cried. "And I'd put ou a pair of
Hank's moccasins to make big track*!"
November explained and added the
story of his dismissal by Planx.
"Well, it's lucky you were there, any j
bow, or we'd have had poor Hank
shot. That fixed me in my determina
tion to get the money. I want it for
Walter. I want to make up to him for
all that my father has made him lose."
"So Mr. Calvey is in this too?" said
Joe in a queer voice.
"Tf you mean that be kuows any- '
thing about it. you're absolutely
wrong!" exclaimed Virginia passion
ately. "If he knew, do you think he'd
ever take the money? It's going to be j
sent to him without any name or clew |
is to where it conies from. Walter is |
;i3 straight a man as yourself. Norem !
her .Toe!" she added proudly. "Yon [
know him and yet yon suspected him!" !
"I didn't say L did. I was asking
far information." said .Toe submissive- |
l.v. "But you haven't got the i
"No! But I'll get it in time."
And in the end Miss Virginia tri
umphed. She received her ransom In
full, and it Is to be doubted if Mr.
Planx ever had an idea of the trick i
played on him. And I'm inclined to
think Mr. Walter Calvey Is still in tbe
dark, too, as to the identity of his
anonymous friend But two things are j
certain—Mrs. Virginia Calvey is a hap
py woman, and Hank Harper is doing
well on a nice 200 acre farm for which
he pays no rent.
The Hundred Thousand Dollar Robbary.
"W WANT the whole affair kept un
-1 official and secret," said Harris,
J the bank manager.
November Joe nodded. He was
seated on tbe extreme edge of a chair
in the manager's private office, looking
curiously out of place in that prim,
richly furnished room.
"The truth ia," continued Harris, "we
hankers cannot afford to have our ens ;
tomers' minds unsettled. There are.
as yon know. Joe, numbers of small ,
depositors, especially in the rural dis- I
trlcts. who would be scared out of their
seTen senses if they knew that this in
fernal Cecil .Tames Atterson had made
off with a hundred thousand dollars.
They'd never trust us again."
"A hundred thousand dollars ia a
wonderful lot of money," agreed Joe.
"Our reserve is over twenty millions,
two hundred times a hundred thou
sand." replied Harris grandiloquentir.
"Have you ever seen Atterson?"
"I thought you might have He al- :
ways spends bis vacations in the
woods, Ashing usually. The last two
years he has fished Red river. This Is ]
what happened. On Saturday 1 told
him to go down to the strong room to
fetch up a fresh batch of dollar and !
five dollar bills, as we were short. It
happened tbat In the same safe there
was a number of bearer securities. At- 1
terson soon brought me the notes I had
sent hlra for with the keys. That was
about noon on Saturday. We closed at
1 o'clock. Yesterday, Monday. Atter- I
son did not turn up. At first I thought
nothing of it. but when It came to
afternoon and he bad neither appeared
nor sent any reason for his absence I
began to smell a rat. I went down to j
the strong room and found tbat over
SIOO,OOO in notes and bearer securities
"I communicated at once with the j
police, and they started to make in- i
qulrtes. The constable at Roberrille
replied tbat a man answering to the
description of Atterson was seen by a
farmer walking along the Stoneham
road and heading north on Sunday
At this point a clerk knocked at the I
door and. entering, brought in some >
letters Harris stiffened as he noticed ;
the writing on one of them. He cut It I
open, and when the clerk wSg gone oat !
he read aloud:
Dear Harris—l hsreby resi*n my »pl«n- '
did and lucrative position in the Grand
Banks of Canada. It ta a dog's dirty life.
Anyway it is so for a man of spirit. Tou
can give the week's screw that's owing
to me to buy milk and bath btins for the
no*t meeting of directors Yours truly,
C. J. ATTERSON.
"What's the postmark 7' asked Joe.
"Bimouski. Sunday. 9:30 a. m."
"It looks like Atterson's the thief."
remarked Joe*. "I'm inciiued that way
because Atterson bad that letter post
ed by a cou—con—what's the word?"
"You've got it. He was seen here in
town on Sunday at 10:30. and he
couldn't have posted no letter In Bi
mouski in time for the 51:30 a. ro. on
Sunday unless he'd gone there on the
7 o'clock express on Saturday evening
Yes. Atterson's the thief, all right.
And if that, really was he they saw
Stouebam ways he's had time to get
thirty miles of bush between us and
him, and he can go right ou till he's
ou the Labrador. I doubt you'll see
your SIOO,OOO again. Mr. Harris."
"H'ni!" coughed Mr. Harris. "My
directors won't want to pay you $2 a
day for nothing."
"Two dollars a day?" said Joe in his
gentle voice. "I shouldn't 'a' thought
the two hundred times a hundred thou
sand dollars could stand a strain like
I laughed. "Look here, November.
I thiuk I'd like to make this bargain
for you. I'll sell your services to Mr.
Harris here for ?."> n day if you fail
and 10 per cent of tbe sum you recov
er if you succeed. Well. Harris, is it
on or off?" 1 asked.
"Oh. ou. 1 suppose, confound you!"
Twenty hours later Joe. a police
trooper named Hobson and I were
deep In the woods. We had hardly
paused to interview the farmer at
Koberville and then bad passed on
down tbe old deserted roads until at
last we entered the forest, or. as it is
locally called, the "bush "
"Where are you heading for?" Hob
son had asked Joe
"Bed river, because if it really was
Atterson the farmer saw I guess he'll
have gone up there. None »f them
trappers there now in July month, si.
he can steal a canoe easy. Besides, a
man who fears pursuit always likes to
get into a country he knows, and you
heard Mr. Harris say how Atterson
had fished Ited river two vacations
Besides"—here Joe stepped and point
ed to the ground—"lhem's Atterson's
tracks," he said. "Leastways, it's a
black fox to a lynx pelt they are bis."
"But you've uever seen him. What
reason have you?" demanded Hobson
"When lirst we happened uii them!
about four hours back. while you :

November held to the trail, following
it over areas or hard ground and rock. |
noticing a scratch here and a broken I
twig there. The nest morning Novem
ber wakened us at daylight, and once j
more we hastened forward
For some time we followed Atter
son's footsteps and then found that
they left the road.
We moved on quietly and saw that j
not fifty yards ahead of us a uiau was j
walking excitedly up and down. His I
head was sunk upon tiis chest in an at
tltude 6f the utmost despair. He j
waved his hands, and an the still air I
there came to tis the sound of his mo |

Hohson leaped forward and. snapping I
his handcuffs on the man's wrists,
"Cecil Atterson. I've got you!"
"By the way. I'd like to Invir exactly
what I'm charged with." said Atterson j
"Theft of SIOO,OOO from the Grand ;
hanks. May as well hand them o*"er
ind put me to no more troub'e."
Hobson plunged his hand into Atter
ton's pockets and searched him thor
oughly. but found nothing
"They are not ou him!" be cried.
"Try his pack."
From the pack Noveuiber produced a'
square bottle of whisky, some bread,
salt, a slab of mutton—that was all.
"Where have yon hidden the stuff?"!
Suddenly Atterson laughed.
"So you think 1 robbed the bank?"!
he snld. "I've my own down on them,
and I'm glad they've been hit by souiv
one. though I'm not the man. Anyway, |
I'll bare you and them for wrongful j
arrest, with violence."
November was fingering over the
pack, which lav opeu on the prouud.
examining it and lis contents with con
centrated attention. At tenon had snnk
down under a tree like a man wearied
Hobson and Joe made a rapid exam-
ination of tbe vicinity. A few yards
brought them to the end of Atterson's
where be slept" said Hob
son. "It's all - pretty clear. He was
dog tired and just collapsed. I guess
that was last night. It's an old camp
ing place, this. Rut where has be
cached the bank's property?"
For upward of an hour Hobaon
searched every conceivable spot But
not so November Joe. who. after a
couple of quick casts down to the riv
er, made a tire, put on tbe kettle and
lit his pipe.
At length Hobson ceased his exer
tions and accepted a cup of tea Joa
"There's nothing cached round here,
and his trail stops right where he
slept. He uever moved a foot beyond
that nor went down to the river. 100
yards away. The chap's either cached
them or handed tbem to an accomplice
on the back trail. I'm thinking he'll con
fess, all right, when 1 get liitu alone."
He stood up as November moved to
talre a cup of tea over to Atterson.
"No, you don't!" he cried. "Prison
er Atterson neither ents nor drinks be
tween here and Quebec unless be con
fesses where he has the stuff bid."
"He won't ever put you wise." said
"Why do you say that?"
"'Cause be can't. He don't know
"Bah!" was all Hobson's answer as
be turned on his heel.
November Joe did not move as Hob
son. his wrist strapped to Atterson's.
disappeared down the trail by which
we had come.
"Well." 1 said, "what next?"
"I'll take another look avound." Joe
led the way d»wu to the river, which,
though not more thau fifty yards away,
was hidden from us by the thick trees.
It was n slow tiowiug river, arid in
the soft until of the margin I saw. to
uiy surprise, the quite recent traces of
a eauoe having been beached. Beside
