THE ARGUS. TUESDAY, JUXE 27, 100
Ransomed from Indians.
The death of Charles Hanger, of
Clinton, III., in Dayenport. Sunday
evening, recalls an interesting and ro
mantic story of frontier day. Mr.
Hanger's death occurred at 7 o'clock
Sunday evening at the home of Mrs.
A. M. Cook, on the Rockingham road.
Mr. Hanger was especially esteemed
by'Mnf. Cook and her family because,
back in JSCS, he proved himself a
friend in need to Mrs. Cook, then a
young girl captive in the hands of the
Chefenne Indians. A year before, an
emigrant train with which Mrs. Cook
was traveling, with her parents and
younger sister, was attacked by Chey
enne Indians at Rock Creek, Wyo. C
their family, the mother was killed,
the two daughters carried away in cap
tivity. The children were separated,
and Mrs. Cook has never since seen
her p.Uter, and is unaware of her fai.
It was a year or ro after this tragedy
that Mr. Hanger, then an Indian trad
er, chanced upon the hand of ("he-yen
nets, then down south of the Arkansas
river, wLh whom was the present Mrs.
Cook t.f Davenport. By considerate
tact and finesse, he secured her Mory,
and immediately pioposetl to lansom
her from the Indians. This he tuiti
inately did. paying $L'.''in i, secure her

FAKE HAIR PREPARATIONS.

to Kail tint.
Many hair preparations are "fake"
because they are merely se-alp irri
tants. They often cause a dryness,
making the hair brittle, and. titia.ly.
lifeless. Dandruff is the cause of all
trouble with hair. It is a germ dis
ease. The? germ makes cuticle scales
as it digs to the root of the hair, where
it destroys the hair's vitality, causing
it to fall out. To cure dandruff, the
germ must be killed. "Destroy the
cause, you remove the e'ffe'ct." Now
bro's Herpicide is the only hair prep
aration that kills the dandruff germ,
thereby leaving the hair to grow lux
uriantly. Sold by It-ading druggists.
