Letter Writer la Liquor Flht.
PIEFiRE, 8. D., Jan. 26. (Special.) Fort
Pierre is a "dry" town and recent prosecu
tions of parties, who were detected while
disposing of liquor has created a great deal
of Ill-feeling between' those who wish to
see no license strictly enforced and those
who seem disposed to wink at violations
of the no-license system. Fuel has been
added to the flames by the appearance in
the field of an anonymous letter writer.
An Interesting feature of the matter . is
that the letters unquestionably are written
by a woman, who evidently sympathizes
with those who would sanction the illegal
sale of liquor. Recipients of the letters
have been State's Attorney Johnson, ex
State Senator Warren Young and Fred A.
Mix, editor of the Fort Pierre Falrplay,
which recently has been publishing the de
tails of arrests of prominent citizens on
the charge of selling liquor unlawfully.
The letters are abusive 4n character and
condemn, In unmeasured, terms, the aetlvlty
of the recipients of the eplstlles In dis
couraging the Illegal sale of liquor, and tn
exposing' those guilty of violating the law.

Scramble of Shorts to Cover Causes
Sensational Spurts in
NEW YORK, Jan. 26. The volatile up
rush of prices of stocks when the market
opened today made a sensational sequM to

Such of yesterday's sellers as did not have

points above the cloRing level of yesterday.

RANGE LOSSES ARE SERIOUS
Twenty Per Cent to Date, Is Estimate,
but Another Snow Would
Be Fatal. -
LANDER, Wyo., Jan. 26. (Special.)
Although the weather , has - moderated In
central Wyoming, range conditions continue
unfavorable. Sheep and cttUe have been
able to graze a portion of ach day on the
high divides from which the wind of the
last ten days has removed all snow, but
the animals, owing to the extremely cold
weather of December and the first two
weeks of January, are thin and not strong
enough to rustle feed as is their custom
at this season of the year. Practically all
stock has been on feed where owners vpuld
get hay and grain to the animals, and as
they have come to expect this treatment,
they reluctantly push out Into the hills
The Losses to date will' not exceed 20 per
cent, but unless the supplies of hay and
grain are delivered this week, stockmen
say the losses will be heavy.
SHERIDAN, Wyo., Jan. 26. (Special.)
Reports of stock losses in this section
have been greatly exaggerated, according
to Charles R. Masuey, cashier of the Sher
idan Bank Of Commerce, who Is in as
close touch withthe wool and cattle In
dustry as any man In northern Wyoming.
Mr. Masse y Is in constant communication
with men in every dlHtrict where losses
are said to have reached alarming propor
tions, and, based on the most reliable
authority, he declares that th. reports are
greatly at variance wtlh the real situation.
"I have, within the last ten days seen
practically every large range cattle man
and flockmaster in this territory," says
Mr. Massey, "and such cattlemen as E. L.
Dana of Parkman, J. B. Kendrlck of Sher
idan and Doc Spear of the Spear Bros.
Cattle company, say that the loss so far
this wintf among their cattle has not
been above normal, while among sheepmen
E. L. Jackson of the Empire Sheep com
pany of Moorcroft, T. A. Stout of the
American 8heep company of Gillette and
R. R. Selway of Sheridan estimate the
loss in sheep at from S to 6 per cent,
surely not an alarming figure considering
the severity of the winter thus far."

To Keep the Hair
Light and FJuffy
(From Chicago Inter Ocean.)
The proper care of the hair does not
require a woman to scour her scalp with
soap and drench, her hair with r
until a shampoo. Including drying the hair
takes the better part of the day. In fact,
authorities cay that the less soap and
water used on the hair the better, as the
alkali and moisture tend to make the hair
coarse, dull and brittle.
If you want to keep tbe scalp clean
and .the hair light and fluffy, try dry
shampooing. Put In a quart jar, or any
other handy container, four ounces of
powdered orris root and four ounces of
therox. fttlr and shake until thoroughly
mlxod. A beautiful cleansing powder with
a delicate perfume will be the result.
Hprlnkle a tableapoonful of this mixture
on the head and then brush it well through
lht hair. This brings out the natural color
of the hair, maka it soft and glossy, and
if continued regul.uly, tends to muke the
hair long and abundant, for It is a natural
hair grower. Adv. ...
