COOKED IN FLAME
Ma chen Winters-, is Terribly
jBurnecMn Oil Explosion in
L Silvis Machine Shop.
SMALL CHANCE OF RECOVERY
Falls Short in Leap and Lands in Burn
ing Petroleum Coincidence in
Maehen Winters, a residertt of Silvia
was probably fatally burned while at I
work as machinist in the machine shop
of the Rock Island roail at Silvis this .
morning. The explosion of an oil burn-j
er threw 10 gallons or blazing petro-j
leum into the pit under an engine i.
the fire box of which Winters and 1. 1
F. Hughes were working. The flames
instantly enveloped the pair, the grales
having been removed from under them.
Their only way to escape was through
the fire door. Hughes threw his jump
er over his head and leaped head first,
alighting out of danger.
Winters followed, but fell short and
tumbled into the pit. Before he could
be dragged out he was terribly burned,
almost the entire body being badly
cooked. He was removed to the city
hospital and physicians say he has a
hare chance of recovery.
Son lltrravl I.iimI Winter.
It is a strange and sad coincidence,
a son of Mr. Winters was killed last
winter by being burned to death. The :
family then lived south of Warner' j
Crossing. The little one pulled a lighted j
gasoline stove over onto himself and
was fatally burned.

RING WORM AND DANDRUFF.
They Are Each Caused by a Pestifer
Ring worm and dandruff are some
what similar in their origin; each is
caused by a parasite. The germ that
causes dandruff digs to the root of the
hair and saps it vitality, causing fall
ing hair, and, finally baldness. With
out dandruff there would never be bald
ness, and to cure dandruff it is neces
sary to kill the germ. There has been
no hair preparation that would do this
until the discovery of Newbro's Herpi
cide. which positively kills the dan
druff germ, allays itching Instantly and
makes hair glossy and soft as silk.
Take no substitutes. There is nothing
"just as good." Sold by leading drug
gists. Send 10 cents in stamps for
sample to the Herpicide company, De
troit. Mich. Two sizes, 50 cents and
