cage but they co just like ordinary
turtle doves at times, in spite of the
fact Jhat they were imported from
But of all the attractions of the
show four ordinary hens, with an

- Volley at Man Who

"Highjackers" fired a volley of
shots at E. E. Bruce, a wholesale
drug man, at 4 yesterday morning,
according to a police report.
The men drove to the Bruce
home, SO? South Thirty-eighth
street, in an automobile and gained
entrance to his cellar by breaking a
window. They stole three quarts of
whisky and 1Z quarts of cordials
and were leaving when Mr. Bruce
turned on the lights and peered out
of a window on the second floor.
I he men in the car shouted at
him and fired several shots as the
car sped away. - Mr. Bruce was not
struck by the bullets, one of which
broke the window. The others
struck the side of the house.

To Avoid Rough, Coarse,
" Chapped, Blotchy Skin
Most akina require constant grooming at
this season to keep them from becoming
unduly red, blotchy, coarse, rough or harsh,
or if such conditions has developed, to
overcome it. In such eases it is particu
larly inadvisable to keep piling on cos-
metlct which clog the pores and make the
complexion woreo than ever.
It's a lot more sensible to use ordinary
snereolised wax, which Jiterally absorbs a
spoiied complexion. Apply the wax, like
eold cream, before retiring-. Next morn
ing, in washing it off. you'll wash away
fine, flour-'ike particles of the unsightly
cuticle. Repeat for a week or more and
' you'll have an entirely new skin soft
white, spotless and beautiful as a child's.
One ounce of mereolited wax, procurable
at any druggist's, is all you'll need.
Try This If You "
There is one sure way that never
fails to remove dandruff completely
and that is to dissolve it This de
stroys it entirely. To do this, just
: get about four ounces of plain, ordi
nary liquid arvon; apply it at night
then retiring; use enough to moisten
the scalp and rub it in gently with
the finger tips.
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, too, that all itching
.and digging of the scalp will stop
. instantly, and your hair will be
fluffy, lustrous, glossy, silky and
soft, and look and7 feel a hundred
' You can sret liquid arvon at any
drug store. It is inexpensive, and
four ounces is all "you will need.

Tiaga .Siberia, Nov. 25. Eight
thousand wives and children of
officers making an eleventh-hour
flight from Omsk are reported to
have been captured by the bolshe

troops throwing away their guns
and commandeering locomoitves,
trains and carts in which to escape.
Fifteen carrying officers and their
families, besides scores of othei
trains filled with refugees, ammuni
tion and merchandise, which were
blocked by' wreckage and lack of
motpr power, fell into the hands of
the bolsheviki, who followed up the

Before the meeting Attorey Gen
eral Palmer said that if the figures
as to operators' profits given yes
terday by Mr. McAdoo were correct
it was not likely Dr. Garfield would
permit an increased price for coal.
In a statement bearing on this
ssue the operators said that con
ditions in 1917 were abnormal," but
that as Mr. McAdoo was 'ignorant
of conditions-in 1918 and 1919, his
message "carries no weight and it
quires no answer." The operators
said they welcomed an investiga
tion of current tax returns and that
they had been urging a board of ar
bitration or a tribunal of investiga
tion, but that the miners refused to
agree to it. -
With less than 40 per cent of the
normal output of bituminous coal
being produced, the nation is facing
its most serious period since the
strike of soft coal miners was or

by the railroad administration. In

Borah and attended sessions of con
gress on the league of nations.
Mr Ingersoll is strongly opposed
to tht league and is an ardent sup
porter of Senator Borah. Mr. Inger

being ratified without reservations,
that stronger reservations will be
added. : ' .
