Police Say I And Auto To Fam Is there some unidentified enemy of the Dunton family of Alexandria, Va., who is trying to even up an old score for some real or fancied wrong suffered years ago? Washington and Alexandria police are working on this theory, and be lieve that when they find the man who held up and shot Edgar L. Dun ton on Wednesday night on the road to Camp Humphreys. below Alexan dria, they will also And the man who last night stole a big touring car of Worth B. Dunton, of 1312 Q street northwest, last night, and drove it over a ten-foot embankment into the Potomac river at Four Mile Run, Va. FAMILY (SRUDR.3 SEEN. The police think it is more than mere coincidence that Edgar L.. Dun ton should be shot at on a lonely road one night and then a brother should have a car stolen and de liberately run into the river within twenty-four hours after the shooting. They think that some person or per sons who have a grudge against the IDuntons are at work, and feel that the same person or persons committed both crimes. Although both the Washington and Alexandria police are dragging the river at Four Mile Run for the body ADVERTISEMENT A Simple Way To Remove Dandruf There is one sure way that has never failed to remove dandruff at once, and that is to dissolve it, then you destroy it entirely. To do this. just get about four ounces at ptlon. common liquid arvon from any 4rug store (this is all you will need), ap ply it at night when retiring; use enough to moisten the scalp and rub it in gently with the finger tips. By morning, most if not all, of your dandruff will be gone, and three or four more applications will complete ly dissolve and entirely destroy every single sign and trace of it. no matter how much dandruff you may have. You will flnd all itching and dig ging of the scalp will stop instant ly, and your hair will be luffy. lus trous, glossy, silky and soft. and look and feel a hundred times better. Fine for Skin Exposed to Sun or Flying Dirt These days the face needs special care and attention. Flying dust and dirt, the beating sun, are seiere on any skin. Their despoiling effects are best overcome by the application of pure mercolized wax. This keeps skin and pores in a cleanly condi tion, the complexion beautifully white and spotless. Reddened, tanned, freckled or roughened cuticle is actually absorbed by it. one ounce of mercolized wax, obtain able at any drug store. is suffclent to com pletely renovate a soiled complexlon. It is used like cold cream. allowed to remain en over night, and washed off In the morn ingine lines and even the dleeper wrinkles often appear at this season. In such cases nothing is hetter than a fae bath made by dissolvi ng an ounce of gtre powdered sax olite in a half pint wi rch hazel. This is remarkably effective.

Louis, sad ?ullets Theft Due ily Enemies or bodies of the persons who drove the car over the embankment, they thin that a strup hat without any initials found floating on the river was merely a "stall" to make it ap pear as though it were an accident. when in reality the car was deliber ately run into the river with the in tention of destroying it. AVTOMOPILE FOUND IN RIVER. The automobile. a large six-cylin oer touring car, was found in the river near Four Mile Run with its lights blazing and its motor running. 'he water where it was found is but six feet deep, and the rear of the car, with top up, protruded from the water. When tbe police from Alex andria succeeded in getting the ma chine out the motor was running slowly and the dashlight was burn ing, as was also one of the head Ilahts. The automobile was stolen from Its parking place in front of a theater on Pennsylvania avenue between $ and 10 o'clock while Dunton was seeing the show with a sister. He and his sister had Just returned from Alexan dria, where they visited their brother, Edgar L. Dunton, who was shot Wednesday night. Dunton"a escape from death was miraculous. A 50-cent piece in his vest pocket saved his life when it stopped one of the four bullets fired at him Wednesday night by a high wayman on the Camp Humphreys road, about five miles below Alexan dria. lie was returning to Alexandria from Camp Humphreys near midnight when the highwayman stepped in front of his car and, pointing a pistol at his head, ordered him to stop. REACHED FOR PIUTOL. Dunton reached for his own pistol at the same time stepping on the gas. As the car shot forward, the highway man fired four times at him, one of the bullets striking him In the arm and another hitting him in the stom ach. which was deflected by the silver oin in his vest pocket. He could give but a meagre de scription of the highwayman, but thought he was a negro. The police of the Habor precinct today continued dragging the river t Four Mile Run in an effort to find the body of the person driving the auto, although they do not think that any one was in the car when it was sent over the embankment. 25,000 NAVY YARD MEN ASK RAISES Demand Increase of $2 Day.

It was reported yesterday by Cap Lain Larsen, of the Danish steamer Fredericksborg. that two members of his crew. John Madsen and Magnus Disen, who had been ordered conned to the ship, had escaped. A harbor launch, according to Captain Larsen. ram. alonside of the Fredericksborg nd the two men jumped into it. whegeupon the launch turned toward shore and increased its speed, not withstanding protests of the otcers on board. Madsen was captured yesterday and returned to the ship. He confessed that the escape was planned and said that Olsen and himself paid the man in the launch $6 each to take them ashore. German seamen, who were on ships rof other nationalities and were not ermitted to leave them, recently man aged to escape. They were not cap tured before the ships sailed, and heavy fines were imposed upon the ships.
