Federal Judge's Decision in Habeas
Corpus Suit, Started Here, Signal
Victory for Mother.
Will Mrs. James Barclay continue
the legal battle for possession of the
noted incubator baby?
There is reason to believe that she
will give up tho contest, in view of
the recent decision of Judge Pollock
in the United States court at Topeka,
Kan., who declined to assume juris
diction in the case. The case was
brought in the federal court on a writ
of habeas corpus, as were the cases
which were tried here and at Law
rence, Kan. Unless Mrs. Barclay can
bring about a rehearing of the case
here, the only further step possible is
an appeal from the ruling of Judge
Pollock to the United States court of
appeals, which might order the Topeka
judge to assume jurisdiction. The case
her was first decided in Mrs. Bleak
ley's favor, but the appellate court at
Ottawa remanded the case. The Kan
sas supreme court has held that the
jurisdiction of Illinois courts applies
and has declined to accept jurisdiction
W'uh Sl;iii! VU-1 or y.
The ruling of the federal court was
a signal victory for Mrs. Bleakley, who
so long as she does not enter the juris
diction of the circuit court here, is se
cure in the possession of the child, ap
Mrs. Ora Thompson, grandmother of
the incubator baby, says of the litiga
tion, which has been in five courts:
"The decision came as a surprise to
us. for we felt intuitively that the
court, was against us. We think that
the long siege is over and that Mrs.
Barclay has concluded that the child
is better off with its mother, after all.
In the Kansas supreme court we were
given judgment for the costs, -which
amounted to $228.10."
The litigation has proved decidedly
expensive to both sides, although Mrs.
Bleakley has had public sentiment on
her side and has been given some as
sistance financially, Her attoreys de.
clined to accept any fee, asking only
remuneration for their expense.

DANDRUFF CAUSED BY A GERM.
A New Discovery That Kills the Germ
and Prevents Baldness.
Pretty nearly all the hair prepara
tions for dandruff have some merit in
allaying itching of the scalp, and In
being a fairly good dressing for the
hair, but there is only one that recog
nizes what causes dandruff, falling
hair, and baldness, and that destroys
the cause, a little germ and that is
Newbro's Herplcide. This germ eats
its way into the scalp, it digs up the
scalp into little white scales. Unless '
it is destroyed there's no permanent j
stopping of falling hair and cure ofj
dandruff and baldness. Newbro's Her- j
picide kills the germ. "Destroy the 1
cause, you remove the effect." Sold
by leading druggists. Send 10 cents
in stamps for sample to The Herpicide
company. Detroit, Mich. Sold in two
sizes. 50 cents and $1. T. H. Thomas,
