, other sections in the central part of

belief that it was of volcanic origin. i
Reports from Tuscany and a portion
of the Emilia region say the shock was'
j felt everywhere in those sections with

from the north to south and were
attended by underground rumblings.'

FINISH CAPITOL PAINTINGS
Money Has Been Appropriated but Al

Decide What to Do
The Public Ground and Buildings
Commission at its meeting next Tues
day will take up the matter of tlio

nettes #ll the wall of the corridor in
the north wing of the capitol. Tim con
tract for this work was let to .lohu W.
Alexander, of New Y'ork, who was to
do the work for John H.~ Sanderson,
contractor for the decorations of the
new capitol, for $22,000, and Alexan
der gave bond for the performance of
the work. When the capitol graft
scandal came to light and ail decorative
work was ordered sto>ppe*l, work on the

In 1911 a second contract with Al

sum of SII,OOO, or 50 per cent, of the
contract price, and the Legislature ap
propriated $22,000, but nothing was
heard from Mr. Alexander. The appro

get, but although Alexander has re
IH-atedlv been requested to take some
action in signing the contract he has
not yet done so. It is said that Alex
ander declines to give a new bond,
holding that the bond he gave Sander
son still is valid.
This year the $22,000 is not om
braced in tlu< appropriation buugot, and
Superintendent Itumbo will refer the
matter to the Kourd of Public Grounds
at its meeting on Tuesday with notice
that Alexander has not yet complied
with the contract, and if "the Board de
cides to go ahead with the work under
another contractor the appropriation
will have to go before the Appropri

How to Gain Weight
A Pound a Day
Thin moil and women who would like
to increase their weight with 10 or 15
pound* of healthv "stay there" fat
should try eating a little Sargol with
their meals for a while and note results.
Here is a flood test worth trying. First
weigh yourself and measure yourself.
Then take Sargol—one tablet with
every meal—for two weeks. Then
weigh and measure again. It isn't a
question of how you look or feel or
wluit your friends say and think. The
sralog and the tape ni <asuro will tell
their own story, and most any thin man
or woman can easily add from five to
eight pounds in the first fourteen day*
by following this simple direetion. And
best of all, the new tlesh stays put.
Sargol does not of itself 'make fat.
but mixing with your food, it turns the
fats, sugars and starches of what you
have eaten, into rirli, ri|K> fat produe
nig nourishment for the tissues ami
blood -prepares it in an easily assim
ilated lorm which the blood ean read
ily accept. All this nourishment now
passes from your body as waste, lint
Sargol stops the waste nml does it
quieklv and makes the fat producing
contents of the very same meals you are
eating now develop pounds and pounds
of healthy tlesh between your skin and
bones. Sargol is safe, pleasant, etUcient
and inexpensive. <i. A. Gorgas and
other loading druggists in llarrisburg
and vicinity sell jt in large boxes—
forty tablets to a package—on a guar
antee of weight increase or tnoncv back.
