BECAUSE IT IS BEST.
It is Best Bscaw It is
Proper Care of Hair
and Complexion
The worry and bother of wearing
hair-nets and veils to matt* the hair
stay up and conceal a dull, "stringy''
unkempt appearance can easily be
avoided by stopping shampooing with
eoap. The "free" alkali lu e>ap Irri?
tates the scalp, makes the Ua'.r
streaked, dull, coarse and brittle. Sham?
poo with a teaspoonful of canthrox dis?
solved in a cup of hot water and the
hair will always be light fluffy and
easy to do up. beaidea looking decid?
edly neat. Thle shampoo lathers
abundantly, dries quickly, stops Itch?
ing scalp, and cleanses as no other
shampoo will. The luxury of extreme
cleanliness which comes from the use
of this shampoo has made It so popu?
lar that many of the beat hairdressers
now use it exclusively. It Is Inex?
pensive, and can be bought at any drug
store.
To whiten aud beautify face, neck
and arms, dissolve four ounces of
spurmax In a half pint witch hazel or
hot water, adding two teaspoonfuls
glycerine. Apply this lotion freely
and it will ton? up the skin wonder?
fully and quickly. It makes the skin
soft and smooth, and will remove that
shiny, muddy look which Is so annoy?
ing. This lotion will be found much
better to uae than face powder, as It
does not rub off easily like powder,
Bar does it give the fact that "pow
dried look." This spurmax lotion Is
excellent for removing and prevent?
ing freckles, chapping and roughness |
of the skin. Advertisement.
WEALTHY FARMER
SHOOTS HIS WIFE
Then He Sits on Sticks of Dyna?
mite and Is Blown to
Pieces.
West Pelham. Maas.. October 1.?
George Shaw, a wealthy farmer, shot
his wife, Jennie B. Shaw, probably j
fatally hers to-day, and then blew!
himself to pieces with dynamite which!
he placed In a stump and aat upon.
Mra Shaw had come from Hartford.;
Conn., to place flowers on her son's
grave. She had not seen her husband'
since she left him in January. 1911.'
until she encountered him near his
home to-day as she was driving to the
cemetery. Mrs. Shaw was accompanied!
by her daughter at the time. Mrs. H. >
W. Griffin, of Chicopee, and Mra Bur-'
nett, of Springfield. No words were
exchanged between Shaw and his wife
when they passed on the road, but the
man immediately went home, procured
a light driving rig. and. following his
I wife, caught up with her In the ceme?
tery. Jumping to the ground he be
i gan firing at her with a revolver as
j she sat In her carriage.
Mrs. Shaw's horse ran away, threw
the three women out. Shaw ran up t >
his wife when she fell to the ground
and pounded her over the head with
his fists and with his revolver until
she was Insensible.
Leaving her apparently dead, the
roan made his way to his home. When
; search waa made for him a little later
' by the sheriff, his body was found
I scattered about the lot. Investigation
I showed that Shaw had placed several
[Sticks of dynamite in the stump of an
old tree in his back yard and then
I after aeating himself upon the stump
i exploded the dynamite.
An examination of Mrs. Shaw saow
I'ed that two bullets passed through her
abdomen. Her skull was fractured and !
her right arm broken. Physicians hold ,
out little hope for her recovery.
Shaw was a successful farmer and j
was Interested in lumbering. His wife
1 was five years his Junior. The couple j
i had been married many years
Nearly two years ago Mrs. Shaw!
' suddenly left her homo and all ef-1

were unavailing though he said he be

PLACING ARMIES
ON WAR FOOTING
Short of Hostilities, Situation in
Balkans Could Hardly Bs
Worst.
London. October 1.?With th* ex?
ception of Roumania all tb* Balkan?
countries are placing; their armies on
a war footing, but no step has yet
been taken indicating an outbreak of
hostilities.
A dispatch Sled at Constantinople av
11 o'clock to-night anaounoad that the
foreign minister was atUl without any
communication from Bulgaria or Ser
via, and no definite move in the way
of combined action on the part of the;
great power* has been made.
Short of actual hostilities, however,
the altuatlon could hardly be worae.
The report that Turkey has decided to
seise all Greek veaaala In Turklah
waters has an especially warlike ap?
pearance, while it la further reported!
that Greece ia about to proclaim the
annexation of Crete?an net which'
Turkey haa repeatedly declared would
be considerate as a casus belli.
The Neue Frei Presse, of Vienna, ex?
presses doubt whether the great pow?
ers are in harmony on the Balkan ques?
tion, it regarda the action of the Bal?
kan atatea as a defeat for European
diplomacy and thlnka Servla Is so de?
voted to Russia that she would not
have ordered mobilisation with out
Russia's consent.
Peace depends largely upon the at?
titude of Roumania, according to the
Constantinople correspondent of the
Dally Telegraph, and much significance
la attached to a long interview which
the Roumania minister at Constanti?
nople has had with the Turkish for?
eign minister.
Ar aar Ordered Mobilised.
Constantinople. October 1.?The Cabi?
net, after a prolonged meeting to?
night, decided to order a partial, not
general, mobilising of the Turklab
army. The exact orders are for the
present secret. The Cabinet also re?
jected the Servian demand respecting
the transport of ammunition through
the Turkish lines This action ia in
reply to a note sent to the Porte by
the Servian minister. Dr. Nenadevltch.
in which he requested the Porte either
to sanction the passage of ammunition
at present detained by the Turkish au?
thorities or return it to Franca
Scrvla has now stopped consign?
ments of ammunition from Germany
for Turkey, while Bulgaria has sus?
pended freight traffic between Turkey
and Bulgaria, and commandered all
the cars for military aervlce. The
Porte now haa decided to detain all
Greek vessels In Turkish waters in
order to requisition their services for
the transport of troops.
Although no communication haa yet
been presented by any of the Balkans
states with reference to Macedonia, It
is the opinion of many diplomats here
that they will formulate a demand for
Macedonian autonomy which Turkey
ia certain to refuse. War will then
be Inevitable unless the powers suc?
ceed In restraining Budgarla and Ser
vla by a threat of occupation of Aus?
tria and Russia of the two kingdoms
if they embark on hostilities against
Turkey. But it Is doubted If Austria
and Russia will fee able to agree anon
such joint action. Consequently. It is
regarded aa probably that Austria,
backed by Germany, will act singly.
