Held fcr Attempted Murder. Perry
Patterson, now in the custody of the
Davenport police and wanted at Des
Moines, from whence he escaped a few
weeks ago, was yesterday indicted by
the grand jury at Des Moines on the
charge of assault with intent to com
mit murder. The indictment came as
a victory over the justice courts in the
capital city by the police depaftment,
as Patterson, with 10 others, had been
dismissed on the charges preferred
against them by Justice of the Peace
Zcll G. Roe, because the police depart
ment failed to put in an appearance in
the justice court at the time the cases
were called. Patterson is charged with
having attempted to murder Josie Tru
hart during a free-for-all fight.

They Grow Hair
Certain Ingredients !if Properly
Combined, Stimulate Hu
man Hair Growth.
Resorcin is one of the most ef
fective germ destroyers ever discov
ered. Beta-napthol is a most power
ful, yet absolutely safe germicide and
antiseptic, which prevents develop
ment of germ matter, and creates a
clean, healthy condition.
Pilocarpine, although not a color
ing matter or dye, is an ingredient
well established for its power to re
store natural color to human hair.
Borax, because of its well-defined
softening and cleansing properties,
is most useful in the treatment of
scalp and hair diseases. Glycerine
acts as a stimulant to the hair bulbs,
and has nourishing influence. Alco
hol is indespensable in medicine be
cause of its antiseptic, stimulating
and preservative qualities.
