To ba possessed of a head of heavy,

tisement. EASY WAY TO
A Baltimore doctor suggests (his simple,
but well-tried and inexpensive home
treatment for people suffering with ecze
ma, ringworm, rashes and similar Hon
ing, burning skin troubles.
At any reliable druggist's get a jar of
reslnol ointment and a cake of reslnol
soap. These are not at all expensive.
With the reslnol soap and warm water
bathe the affected parts thoroughly, until
they are free from crusts and the skin
is softened. Dry very gently, spread on
a thin layer of the reslnol ointment, and
cover with a light bandage, if necessary,
to protect the clothing. This should be
done twice a day. Usually the distress
ing itching and burning stop with the
first treatment, and the skin soon be
comes clear and healthy again unless the
trouble la due to some serious internal
disorder. Samples free, Dent 7-S, Res

Alkali Makes Soap
Bad for Washing Hair
Most soaps and prepared shampoos con
tain too much alkali, which is very in
jurious, as It dries the scalp and makes
the hair brittle.
The best thing to use is Just plain mul
sified cocoanut oil, for thla la pure and
entirely greaseless. It's very cheap, and
beats the most expensive soapa or any
thing else all to pieces. You can get
this at any drug store, and a few ounces
will last the whole family for months.
81mply moisten the hair with water
and rub It in, about a teaspoonful is all
that U required. It makes an abundance
of rich, creamy lather, cleanses thor
oughly, and rinses out easily. The hair
dries quickly and evenly, and Is soft,
fresh looking, bright, fluffy, wavy and
easy to handle. Besides, it loosens and
takes out every particle of dust, dirt and

cry of warning, Langdon struck up the

man was no match for the clean-Umbel

room for a weapon and fell at last upon
the slender little sword which was part
of Mary's costume. A "prop," but a

i'p the glittering, sharp-pointed weapon.
But it was not Laqgdon whom he faced
aa he awung back; it was Mary Mary,
with a stern, white face and livid lips,

"Go!" ahe breathed. So fiercely, ao
contemptuously she uttered the single
word, that without a sound he dropped

A. . Cook of Chicago Buys Struc
ture as Investment Leases
TO USE IT FOR ABOUT A YEAR
For 1200.000 tha First National
bank building, southeast corner of
Thirteenth and Farnam streets, has
been sold to Albert E. Cook, a
wealthy real estate owner of Chi
cago. He buys as an investment, says
President F. H. Davis of the bank.
The latter adds that all the bank fix
tures, vaults and safes are Included
ir the transfer, and that Mr. Cook
may contemplate using the banking
room for some similar institution,
when the First National vacates to
occupy Its own new building at Six
teenth and Farnam streets.
Tha building probably will not be
altered. President Davis asserts, but he
says he does not know what other hank
ing concern might take over the banking
I, easy Room Back.
The big aale was closed Wednesday,
when title and possession paused to Mr.
Cook after extensive negotiations. It was
made subject to all existing leasea. The
First National bank and affiliated Insti
tutions Immediately rented their present
quarters from Mr. Cook, until December
1, and will remain there until the new
building Is completed, which they expect
to be about November 1.
The property Is W IB feet In slse,
with a five story stone and brick building.
The purchaser Is known In Omaha,
although he never lived here, and this is
his first acquisition of Omaha property.
He is a heavy holder of Improved real
estate In the North Side In Chicago, and
also of Iowa farm lands near Odebolt.
Latham Davis of the First National
bank, a brother of President F. II. Davis,
secured the purchaser for the bank. Cald

The First Trust company will continue
to handle the rentals in the building.

started Tuesday, and Manager Nagel,
local representative of tha architects,

deep the caisson will have to ba sunk.
A total of thirty-seven are required to

foundation. It Is ninety-five feet to rock,
but if satisfactory ground Is found at a
lesser depth the caissons will not be put
down that deep, he says.

ready tonight, Mr. Gex. Nothing In tha
whole wide world shall interfere with
my work now! Phil If you'll wait a bit
outside my door, I'll dress."
With murmured rasps of relief which
grew to voluble gossip outside, tha men
shuffled through the door; but when
Langdon was on the threshold Mary's
voice stopped him.
"What shall I do with the revolver,
Phil?" she asked, and there was a tremor
In her voles. "I don't think David ought
to have It."
"I should say not," he said shaply.
"Better keep. It for your ' own protec
tion." Mary shivered at the words, so om
inous In their suggestion of the possible
repetition of the scene just past, and her
fingers trembled ss she drew on her
"1 can cry tomorrow." she whispered
to her own reflection. "Tomorrow I can
be Just a woman; but tonight I am Mary
Page, the atar. Tonight I am Nora!"
And as If the mere word was a
draught of fresh power, she smiled away
her tears; and when she pinned on her
smart little hat, her hands were steady
and her eyes bravely serene.
It was a serenity that did not falter
even when Pollock sprang out of the
shadows st the doorway with an Inco
herent plea for forgiveness; abasing him
self huskily in a last desperate cry for
pity in the name of his love. But there
waa no pity in Mary's glance when she
looked Into Ills bloodshot eyes and when
his voice faltered Into alienee his own
tones rang crisp and cold.
