Morrison Will Was Tampered
With, According to Woman
Chicagos Sept. 13. The will of J.
Morrison, whose $8,000,000 estate
is involved in the bankruotcv Droceed-
ings against his son, Edward W. Mor
rison, bas been tampered with, Mrs.
Phoebe Miller, Morrison's stepmoth
er, testified in tne hearing before fed
eral Judge Landis today. The word
"forever, she said, has been inserted
in the will now on file. The word
does not appear in the original docu
ment, a copy of which she saved from
the Chicago fire in 1871. The substi
tution of the word, she testifies.
changes the entire meaning of the
clause under which the property was
conveyed to Morrison.
The original will, she said, did not
convey the property "forever," but
only during Edward W. Morrison's
life. If Edward W. Morrison die
without children, the will directs that
the estate shall go to the city of Chi
cago tor educational purposes. Morri

When real estate men buy a house
now-a-days in Omaha they are learn
ing to inquire closely as to whether
the water meter in the house is paid
About a year ago the Water board
began to talk of charging home own
ers for the meters that were installed
by the old Water, company before
the city bought the plant. The matter
aroused no great excitement at the
time, but lately some interesting
cases are coming to light. ,
Harry Wolf reported a case to the
Real Estate exchange. A man of his
acquaintance bought a house a few
years ago. It was represented to him
as clear ot incumbrance oi any mnu.
Now the Water board refuses to

accessories of the plant Now the
board claims the right, to sell this

house, or to remove the meter.
This client of Mr. Wolf's wants to
know whether this is right and
whether he can come back upon the

Train Your Hair 11
an Actress Does
.No class of people devotes as much
time to beauty as do actresses, and
naturally no class must be more care
ful to retain and develop their charms.
Inquiry among' them develops the in
formation that in hair care they find
it dangerous to shampoo with any
makeshift hair cleanser. Instead they
have studied to find the finest prepa
ration made , for shampooing and
bringing out the beauty of the hair.
The majority of them say that to
enjoy the best hair wash ahd scalp
stimulator that is known, get a pack
age of canthrox from your druggist;
dissolve a teaspoonful in a cuf of hot
water and your shampoo is ready. It
costs less than three rents for this
amount. After its use the hair dries
rapidly, with uniform color. Dan
druff, excess oil and dirt are dissolved
and entirely disappear. Your hair will
be so fluffy that it wilt look much
heavier than it is. Its lustre and soft
ness will also delight you, while the
stimulated scalp gains the health
which insures hair growth. Adv.
