Lieutenant Cooley is Secretly
Married to Kansas City Red
Cross Worker Who
Served in France.
Conditions arc reversed in the
case of Lt. Paul Cooley of the 41st
infantry, . stationed at Camp Fun
ston, who is awaiting the return of
his bride from overseas, instead of
the usual situation in which the war
time bride waits the return of her
warrior husband. The marriage of
Miss Eva Mac?y of Kansas City to
Lt. Paul CooUv, son of Mrs. A. J.
Cooley of Omaha, took place in Oc
tober in Kansas City.
The bride had been accepted for
overseas service and as the Red
Cross will not accept married wom
en as canteen workers she was
forced to sail under her maiden
name for France. For this reason
no formal announcement was made
of the marriage and now the officer
is expecting the return of his bride.
Lieutenant Cooley was educated
in the Omaha schools enlisting in
the army when the United States
declared war. He received his com
mission at Fort Crook' when the
41st infantry was stationed there
under the command of Col. Doug'cs
Settle. The young fcflicer was
transferred tb Camp Funston early
in the fall shortly before his mat
riage to the pretty Kansas City

Rressman, of this city were at his
bedside. He is survived by his fa
ther, Theodore Bressman and sev
eral brothers and sisters in this city.

Alkali In Soap
Bad For the Hair
Soap should be used very care
fully, if you want to keep your hair
looking its best. Most soaps and
prepared shampoos contain too
much alkali. This dries the scalp,
makes the hair brittle, and ruins it
The best thing for steady use is
just ordinary mulsified cocoanut oil
(which is pure and greaseless), and
is better than the most expensive
soap or anything else you can use.
One or two teaspoonfuls will
cleanse the hair and scalp thorough
ly. Simply moisten the hair with
water and rub it in. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
which rinses out easily, removing
every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff
and excessive oil. The hair dries
quickly and evenly, and it leaves the
scalp soft, and the hair fine and
silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and
easy to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut
oil at any pharmacy, it's very cheap,
alid a few ounces wil supply every
member of the family for months.

TODAY'S BEAUTY HINT
It is not necessary to shampoo
your hair so frequently if it is en
tirely and properly cleansed each
time by the use of a really good
shampoo. The easiest to use and
quickest drying shampoo that we
can recommend to our readers is one
that brings out all the natural beau
ty of the hair and may be enjoyed
at very little expense, by dissolving
a teaspoonful of canthros which can
be obtained from any druggist, in a
cup of hot water. This makes a full
cup of shampoo liquid, enough so it
is easy to apply it to all the hair
instead of just to the top of the
head. This, when rubbed into the
scalp and onto every strand of hair,
chemically dissolves all impurities.
It is very soothing and cooling in its
action, as well as beneficial to both
scalp and hair. After rinsing out
the lather so created, you will find
the scalp is fresh, clean and free
from dandruff, while the hair dries
quickly and evenly, developing a
bright luster and a soft fluffiness
thr.t makes it seem very heavy.

She's just 15, folks!
Tne excitement is over, the dreams are matured, the real
"he-man" has proved not quite "up to the "story book"
heroes from which he was idolized, the Denver trip stopped
short at Omaha, and now it just remains for Goldie Bayles to
go back home
REGRET AND REGRETS.
"The hardest part is to go back
home and face them all even the
babies will know it, I 'spose," she
said, "but still I wish I coiihU havC
seen just a little more of Omaha
while I'm here, for it looks, like it
was such a big place." And that
mixture of regret and satisfaction
that came between the smiles and
tears that followed close upon each
other as she sat alone in the police
station this morning, is the key
note of the attitude of this youth
ful and misguided girl from the
small country town.
, And it's Just the same, story
which has been the foundation of all
such tales from time way back.
She Just "Grew."
I "We were a large family; oh,
there were nine of us, some of the

time and wondering what I did

before my baby came. As a result all
those bad feelings left me, and I just felt
grand, Just as if nothing at all was the
matter, and when the end came I was
hardly sick at all.

"He told me if I was afraid he'd
let me go home, but by that time
I didn't want to go back nor go on
either. So I quit thinking and had
a good time, and we did, too." Here
came the smiles, and in spite of the
eyes swollen with crying and the
black hair, once so carefully bobbed
on the sides after Mrs. Vernon
Castle's style, but now coming
down in stray locks over her iace,
her smile and the twinkle in her
eyes show that forsooth in truth,
wife No. 1 had a dangerous rival
when she found that her man of
men was admiring those dimples.
"We wrote notes every day or so
and he told me about the things we
would see and how he liked my
clothes, and finally, he said that we
either had to go now or never for
they were going to move."
She Admits It.
There it all is, and she told how
she bought her hat and coat so she
would look like he wanted her to
and "I did look better than the rest
of the girls," she added.
"He was to buy me a ring, but
couldn't find oue just like I wanted,
for I sure didn't want one like he
gave his wife," she saj. "I wanted

And so this is the time that
dreams didn't come true, and after
talking to her father she made the
remark that that is the selfsame one
which so many times we read about.

"I did have a good time, some of
the time on the way, but not quite
like he said it would be; 1 don't
know what made me just a wild
notion that he would love me and
make me happy, but I will see that
those sisters, Naomi, Mildred and
the rest, never do what i. did. I
'spose one in the family might as
well learn for the rest."
But it was a pretty hard "learn;"
the handkerchiefs, crepe ones with
green trimming so carefully picked
out to take the eye of her fancied
fastidious hero, were wet with tears
and yet---shall we say womanlike
she kept on to the tail of the dream.
"I think I love him yet, though
I'm not sure, but I'm going home
and maybe after while 1 won't love
him. I've only, gone with boys for
a year and this is the first one that
was a real man, who liked me better
than someone else."
Temporary Injunction in
Real Estate Transfer Suit
Judge Troup in district court has
granted a temporary restraining or
der to prevent Carl and Johanna K.
B. Madsen from conveying lot 3,
Burnham's place; and he set the
hearing for February 27.
Application for the order was
made by Dusina Peterson, widow of
Peter Peterson, and administratrix
of the Peterson, estate. She alleges
that while Peterson was in the
Methodist hospital Madsen induced
him through misrepresentation to
subscribe his name to a deed in con
nection with probating the will of
Nels Jensen; and that at a later
date Madsen likewise obtained her
signature to the tame deed

Forgiving Parent Threatens to
Shoot Married Man, Who
Faces Mann Act Charge
Here to reclaim his 15-year-old
daughter, Goldie, who eloped with
a married man and came to Omaha,
E. D. Bayles, farm manager at Chu
la, Mo., yesterday with a sob
flung his arms around the girl when
he was admitted to the matron's de
partment at the city jail.
"You'll come home, Goldie, won't
you? Mother and me want you
back, no matter what has happen
ed," were his words as he clasped
the child for whom he had been
searching for three days.
Arrested with Girl.
Edward Cox, 26 years old, the
man with whom Goldie eloped, was
arrested in company with her Sun
day, when Omaha police found
them together at a downtown hotel.
The father of the girl arrived in
Omaha yesterday from Chillicothe,
"I'd have shot Cox," he said, "if
I'd found him anywhere but in jail.
"As it was, he only missed death
by a few hours, because if I'd gone
to Chillicothe instead of going the
other way to hunt them I would
probably have found them, and then
they'd have had me in jail for mur
der.'! Faces Statutory Charge.
Cox will be taken back to Chili
cothe, Mo later to answer to a
statutory charge and one of white
slavery. Deputy Sheriff Sani Rohrer
of Chula came with the girl's father
to serve the papers.
The .elopement was carried out
with the aid of a third person, whom
Bayles says is John Burnett, a
farmer of Chula. The pair met at
his farm late Friday afternoon and
remained there until nearly mid
night, when they drove to town and
caught a train for Omaha. Burnett
will also be prosecuted.
Cox is a married man. He met
Goldie while employed by her father
on a farm. Following his attentions
to the young girl Cox's wife told
him she intended to apply for a di
vorce. It was then that Cox per
suaded Goldie to elope.
Had Railroad Tickets.
Cox, when arrested, had tickets
for Denver, Colo., in his bill fold.
The fact that he paid the girl's fare
from Missouri to Omaha will consti

charge, officials say. He will not

MAN FOUND DEAD
South Side Resident Discov
ered on Tracks Thought
to Have Suffered
An inquest will he '. !d this morn
ing at ) o'clock to determine the
cause of the death of John Kwial
lowski, .1318 K street. Kwiallowski
was found unconscious beneath the
Burlington viaduct, Twenty-eighth
and A streets, Sunday night and
died in the Lord Lister hospital
South Side police arrested Frank
Harcnda, a roommate of Kwial
lowski's, and took him to the coun
ty attorney's office, where he was
questioned. He was not held.
A coroner's autopsy on Kwial
lowski indicated that death was due
to a fractured skull. The body is at
the Crosby undertaking parlor.
Head Badly Bruised.
His head was bruised in a number
of places as if he had been attacked
with a blunt instrument.
Police at first thought Kwiallows
ki was struck by a train while mak
ing his way across the viaduct.
Robbery is not thought to have
been the motive, as a purse contain
ing $12 was found in the dead man's
pocket when Yardmaster Clarence
Aldrich found the unconscious body
and rushed him to the Union sta
tion on a switch engine.
Were Together Sunday.
Harcnda, under examination, told I
the nolicc that with Kwiallowski
he had visited in the neighborhood
of Thirty-eighth and H streets Sun-
day afternoon. The pair had a few
drinks of whisky, he said, and after
being there for several hours they
in some way became separated.
Both men were employed at
South Side packing houses. They
had known each other for several
