the presence of the detectives, but wras
captured. Miss Violet Cable, a stenog
rapher, is the complainant against Bar
nekoff, but the police say she is only one
of the many who are alleged to have
been swindled by the prisoner. Miss
Cable claims to have loaned Barnekoff
1400 of her savings after she had become
engaged to marry him. Barnekoff, it is
said, disappeared soon after securing the
money, notwithstanding the fact that to
day was the date set tor the wedding.
Miss Cable made her complaint to the
police several days ago, aud at the time
a warrant was secured for the arrest of
the alleged swindler. Barnekoff, accord
ing to the police, came to Chicago last
February, and at that time inserted an
advertisement in which he represented
himself as a wealthy mine owner iu
search of a wife. Barnekoff denies the
charges against him and says he will be
able to prove bis innocence when ar

in Prussia, ami for many years was en

police that eight years ago he sold his

CANCER Wall Paper
Sufferers from this horrible maladi
nearly always inherit it — not necessarily
from the parents, but may be from sofne
remote ancestor, for Cancer often runs
Jhrough several generations. This deadly
poison may lay dormant in the blood for
years, or until you reach riddle life, then
the first little sore or ulcer makes its ap
pearance— or a swollen gland in the
breast, or some other part of the body,
gives the first warning.
To cure Cancer thoroughly and perma
nently all the poisonous virus must be
diminated from the blood—every vestage
rf it driven out. This S. S. S. does, and
a the only medicine that can reach deep-
leatevl, obstinate blood troubles like this.
When all the poison has been forced out
of the system the Cancer heals, and the
disease never returns.
