When Itching Stops
V 1 "
There is one safe, dependable treat
ment that relieves itching torture and
skin irritation almost instantly and
that cleanses and soothes the skin.
Ask ahy druggist for a 35c or $1 bottle
of zemo and apply it as directed. Soon
you will find that irritations, pimples,
blackheads, eczema, blotches, ringworm
and similar skin troubles will disappear.
A little zemo, the penetrating, satis
fying liquid, is all that is needed, for it
banishes most skin eruptions, makes
the skin soft, smooth and healthy.

' at Waynesboro Following
Young Woman's Death
Waynesboro, Pa., Nov. 2,">.—That
Mary Thelma Ppttcr, the young wife
of Russell Potter, whose dead body
was found on the (loor of her homo
in Trltle avenue. Saturday-afternoon,
i with a bullet hole through her heart,
came to her death from the effects
of a pistol shot wound inflicted by
her husband, was the verdict of the
jury called by the coroner to'make
an inquest into the tragedy. The Jury
I was unanimous in fixing the guilt
upon the husband and reached its
j verdict promptly upon the conclu
sion of the hearing. As a result the
murderer is now in the county jail.
The Inquest was held In the city
hall last night between the hours of
7 and 9. The county coroner, Dr. J.
M. Kinter, presided. District Attor
ney Charles H. Clipptnger, Ureen
castle, conducted the hearing. The
following jury was impanelled: Jus
tice of the Peace John A. Potter.
President, of the Board of Health
William. H. Morrison, Registration
Assessor L,. S. Kepner, Constable
George E. Byers, John H. Neal and
Harvey S. Thompson..
The accused husband was brought
| Into the inquest— or rather dragged
in by the chief of police, as he at
j l'ected not to be able to scarcely put
one foot before the other. He was a
I pitiable and ghastly sight as he
| dropped in a heap on the witness
i chair, with his long bushy raven
j locks, cut football fashion, his old,
shabby overcoat, his palid and deatli
! ly countenance, contorted by agony,
land his body writhing and quaking
i as though in an epileptic fit.
Though cautioned by the District
Attorney, that under the circum
stances, he being the only other per.
son in the house at the time, the law
would presume him guilty of the
murder of his wife .and that he
would not be required to answer any
questions put to him, the
man waived all his rights of legal
protection and at once dropped Into
a recital of the entire bloody episode,
as he* had prepared his story,in the
few hours that had elapsed.
He protested his innocence and
told a circumstantial story of how
| Ills wife had gotten the revolver
; from a nail where they kept it hang
! ing, and began brandishing it in
i cowboy style, suying, ' ,'m going to
shoot you." He at tirst supposed she
I was only jesting, but,soon she level
led the pistol at him. He * stooped
■ quickly" and that minute the shot
I rang out and his wife rushed into
I the parlor and fell over. He could
| not explain how the pistol got into
i the pantry where it was found later
I by a neighbor, or how his wife had
| made her way into the parlor, thir-
I ty-live feet away, before she fell over
j dead. Neither could he explain the
absence of any bloodstains on the
floor of the kitchen or the dining
room through which his wife had to
pass to reach the parlor where her
dead body was found in a pool of
blood. Other glaring discrepancies
in his story, coupled with his actions
immediately following the shooting
and the conditions found in the
wound and clothing of (he dead
woman, made his story unworthy of
j Dr. Croft, who made the autopsy,
. was the main witness. He told of the
1 conditions found at the house when
j he reached there at 2 o'clock, shortly
| after the shooting. The young worn
jan was lying on her side and her
| clothing was saturated with blood,
' in a pool of which she lay. The but
j let had penetrated immediately over
' her heart and passed through the
I same, lodging in the muscles of the
back, from which he extracted it
later in making the autopsy at the
undertaking establishment, where
the body was ordered removed by
the coroner. Her clothing about the
wound was charred and discolored
by the fire and smoke of the pistol.
In the palm of her left hand —and
this was the deadly, incriminating
evidence of murder —was an elong
ated wound showing the path of the
bullet as she grabbed the, end of the
barrel to deflect the shot.
The 22-caliber revolver was
shown in evidence, with one cham
ber empty. Also the extracted bullet
which corresponded with those re
maining in the revolver.
R. E. Gaibraitb, a neighbor, was
the first to reach the' Potter home.
Potter came running over for him,
saving that his wife had shot herself
and had threatened to shoot him. He
told him that liis wife had held the
point of the revolver at fc.er heart
and said she was going to shoot her
self. He said, "No, dearie, don't do it,
but she did it just the same." Wit
ness and Dr. Croft'found the revolv
er in the pantry.
Potter is a son of O. J. O. Potter,
and is only 20 years old. He has al
ways been a wayward youth and
hard to manage. Degeneracy is
stamped on his every feature. He has
been employed at a local factory.
That he provided poorly for Ills wile
is shown by the squalid conditions
about tlie house. His wife was only
fifteen years old when married to
Potter seven months ago. Her father
is depd and her mother lives at Pond
Bank, neur Mont Alto. She was a
comely young woman and the pic
ture of health.
