Insane Woman Kills
Herself in City Jail
(Continued From Face Out.)
Wheeler, 16, and Russell Wheeler, 24,
the former of Sioux Falls and the
latter of Salem, daughter and son,
have not yet been answered.
In Matron's Room.
Mrs. Wheeler was placed in the
matron's room after she had told her
story to Sergeant Rose. She re
mained there all night and the next
morning when she was refused her
release she became hysterical. All
morning and afternoon up to the
time of the tragedy, she was hys
terical, according to Acting Captain
"An insanity complaint was filed in
the cpunty attorney's office this aft
ernpon," said Captain Dillon Tues
day nights "We were going to take
her to the county jail to await a
hearing before an insanity commis
sion. She never was booked here
at central station.".
Officers Behrens and Neilsen went
to the matron's quarters at 4:30 to
take Mrs. Wheeler to the country
She held the door of her compart
ment closed refusing them admit
tance. "We explained," said Behrens,.
"that we were going to take her to
the railroad station and put her on
a train for her home. She stepped
from the door a little bit and when
we went to turn the knob and go
in we heard the shot."
Mrs. Wheeler's body was turned
over to Willis Crosby, undertaker.
Donald, the son, was taken in charge
by juvenile authorities.
No Search for Gun.
Just where Mrs. Wheeler had the
revolver is not known to the police.
Mrs. Wheeler was not "searched"
at the police station. Two grips and
a paper handbag constituted her lug
gage. The police believe she had
the gun in one of the grips. Both
were open in her room.

per year, intermittent, by days a'nd
weeks employment and then un
employment. The miners simply
ask for a regulation of the working
time so that coal production and em
ployent may be regular rather than
intermittent. If the miners were
permitted by the operators to work
full time the supply of coal thus
mined would soon force down, the
price of coal on the market and this
tUe operators are determined not
to permit. The miners', case might
better be stated by their demanding
at least five days of six hours work
per week, which is really more than
they are permitted to work at the
present time. An understanding ot
these conditions clearly shows who
are responsible for the present situ
ation and the cause.
No Practical Advance. .
"When in 1914 the miners received
an increase of 20 cents per ton, the
operators raised the selling price $5
per ton. Surely the conditions and
the standards of life of the miners
have deteriorated by reason of there
being no practical advance in their
wages and their earning power,
while the cost of living has soared
higher and higher.
"The mandate of the officers of
the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica was direct from the representa
tives of the men, who at the recent
convention, decided that unless a
substantial improvement in wages
and a regulation of the working time
were granted the strike order should
be i issued to take effect November
1. President Lewis and his asso
ciates therefore had no alternative,
particularly when the mine opera
tors left the conference, leaving the
representatives of the miners alone.
Injunction Called Wrong. '
"The injunction secured by the at
torney general could not prevent the
strike' for it was issued after the
strike notice had already gone forth.
The injunction was not only a grave
wrong but a gross blunder. It prac
tically takes away the constructive
influence of the officers of the , or
ganization and indeed bars .them
from attempting to end the strike.
Instead of conservative leadership
prevailing it places the whole move
ment in the hands of local men who
may vie with each other and be at
variance with each other. If the in
junction were vacated and the De
partment of Labor invite the opera
tors and the representatives of the
United Mine Workers to a further
conference, I have an abiding faith
that a mutually honorable adjust
ment can be negotiated and effected
whereby the coal strike can be
brought to an ed."
' Lignite Men May Strike. ?
Bismarck, N. D., Nov. 4. Unless

A Sure Way To '
. There is one sure way that has
never failed to remove dandruff at
once, and that is to dissolve it, then
you destroy it entirely. To do this,
just get about four ounces of plain,
common liquid arvon from any drug
store (this is all you will need), ap
ply it at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the scalp and rub
it in gently witn the fmeer tins.
By morning, most if not all, of
your dandruff will be gone, and
three or four more applications will
completely dissolve and entirely de
stroy every single sign and trace of
it, no matter how much dandruff
you may have.
You will find all itching and dig
ging oi tne scaip will ston instantly.
and your hair will be fluffy, lustrous,
glossy, silky and soft, and look and
