If you haven't read the original source, you cite the secondary source in your reference list, but you provide credit for the original source in the body of your text. For example, you should give credit to the original author/s with a note in parenthesis: (as cited by [secondary source author and date]). For a more detailed example, see the Purdue OWL example for "Work Discussed in a Secondary Source."
