Every Woman's Hair
Should Be Beautiful
(Continued From Page One.)
(From Style and .'Fashion, Jew Xork).
"Beautiful, glossy arid lustrous hair
is within the reach of every woman who
will only tryy," said Mme. LeClaire, the
French beauty specialist, today.
"By trying I mean she must use in
telligence as well as be willing to put
forth the physical effort required. If
your 'flair is dull, brittle, dry and
streaked, it means that you are not

"Stop your scrubbing, rubbing and
rinding. Soap and water shampoos
only give you a headache, keep you in- j
doors the better part of a day, and ex
pose you to catching cold.
""Every woman who wants abundant,
lustrous hair should uea a dry sham
poo. Mix lour ounces of powdered
orris root with, fouf ounces of therox.
Sprinkle abount a tablespoonful of this"
mixture upon the head; then brush the
powder tnoroughly through the hair.

gives the hair a beautiful glosffr lustre
in addition to making it light and

of hair." t

"Sunday's battle was- a surprise to
the government and the regiment of
troops that sallied out of Chihuahua.
The statement that the fight took
place at Fresno station on the Mex
ico North Western railway is incor
rect, as Ihis lies eight miles west of.
Chihuahua, and the battle ground was
just about two and one-quarter miles
west of the city, in a rolling country
broken by hills.
"In order to better understand the
scene of action and the country where
the battle was fought it is necessary
to state that the country to the west
of the city is occupied by isolated
spurs of the Sierra Madre proper,
where that great system disappears to
the east. These spurs reach out to the
eastward like the vast jagged teeth
of an enormous saw. Some rise to
great heights, and eight miles south
west of the battle ground is found the
peok of Botopilas that rises to the
magnitude of 7750 feet above the sea
level, while the city of Chihuahua lies
Li a narrow valley 4750 feet high.
Vast canyons have been eroded into
these mountains and nature has sup
plied them with numberless impreg
nable fortresses that if 'fortified are
as strong as Gibraltar itself. Within
this region and all of the territory
west of the Chubiscar dam a force of
a few men could hold legions at bay if
supplied with rapid firing guns. About
15 miles from Chihuahua, alone: the
Mexico Xorth Western road Is a nar
row canyon or pass through which the
railway passes to reach the high
planes of Salas and Palomas. In the
mountain pass on the north side of the
railway is an old fort built during the
Wag a Gala Occasion.
"It was a gala morning in Chihua
hua just before the troops under Gsn.
Navarro left Sunday. Gaily dressed
society women waved farewell to the
multicolored uniforms of the officers,
off to the conquest, while the humbler
women bade farewell to their s Udier
sweethearts with as much grace as
sudh affairs permit.
"There were over 800 troops -and 200
camp followers ' who left Chihuahua.
These were divided Into six cdmpanies
of infantry and two of cavalry. A
small squad of cavalry ""scoured ahead
of the infantry and some of these
reached to within sight of Fresno sta

"The public wagon road paralels the
railway and it was along this open
road that the federal troops had to
pass. As the railway has to take the
water grade it lies in a hollow every
where surrounded by small and large
hills. The country hrre is one mass
of loose rocks, and if is impossible to
pass over any part of it except the
road, on horseback faster than a walk

"As a matter of precaution Gen
Navarro left a cavalry detachment of

the battle says that the number was
larger, probably 65. The Insurrection

the" rioting and demonstrations in the
northern 'part of Mexico are of little
general importance, and will have no
permanent effect on the general peace
and prosperity of Mexico, is the opin
ion 'of Lie. Luis Garcia de JLetona, of
Torreon, who has arrived, in the city,
accompanied by his family.
"Movements in the north," said this
attorney, "are of little importance, ow
ing to the fact that the rioters ha-va
no responsible leader. In fact, "the
groups of rebels are formed entirely
of persons without social position, and
without: the responsibility necessary
for such an undertaking.
"Gomez Palacio was in the hands of
the rebels for three hours. The alarm
in Torreon was reasonable.
'In Cuencame, where the rebels took
refuge, they were routed by the federal
forces and forced to flee toward San
Pedro de las Colonias, Coahuila. As a
revenge the rebels tried to set fire to
the railway1 bridge near "Velardena."
