You Richmond girls who wear "rats" in your hair (and there are quite a few) beware, for it is believed that dreadful diseases are contracted by the mere wearing of the little beauty adorners. The report comes from Warsaw. Indiana, that a woman in the neighborhood of North Webster, is afflicted with leprosy, and it is be lieved that the most terrible disease Known was contracted simply by the wearing of "rats" in her hair. It has been impossible to verify the rumor or ascertain the name of the woman. it in said that a similar case exists in Chicago and another in Detroit. In both cases the origin of this incurable tlisease is attributed to the wearing of false hair. So rapidly have the reports spread that large department stores in Chica go are now offering their entire sup ply of hair goods at a greatly reduced price it is said, believing that a move ment will soon be started to do away with the wearing of rats and false switches, altogether. An Undesirable Fad, The present stylo of hair dressing, which was started In a modest way several years ago, has reached a stage where practically every woman feels that her hirsute appendage is incom pletc without a great quantity of false hair. At first the new style of hair dressing was scoffed at by the more sensible women, but today these same women are slaves of the fad. The idea of wearing "rats" was undoubt edly conceived for the benefit of girls and women who were somewhat shy on natural hair, but the mania for bushy heads grew so rapidly that soon they were all stuffing in rats and pil ing false hair on top. The practice not only offers the opportunity of con tracting contagious diseases, but is un healthy it 1h said, and causes the fall ing out of natural hair. It is Bald that a young girl, whose homo is near Greenfield, has recently broken out with a skin disease, as the result of wearing false hair and the re port is current that she is. suffering from leprosy. Efforts to establish her identity have been futile up to the present time, but the mere rumors in this regard recent ly furnish food for thought for the lo cal girls who would have bushy heads and give heed to the danger that re sults from tho practice so frequently indulged in.

ARMY ADVANCES ON CITY FEARING THAT CAPTURED VES SEL WILL BOMBARD THE CITY, HEAVY INTRENCHMENTS NOW BEING THROWN UP. (American News Service) Managua, Feb. 11. Managua is in a panic as the result of the capture of the steamer Managua by a band of rebels. Fearing an attempt to bom bard the city, machine guns and heav ier field pieces today were stationed on the shore of the lake. Arrests in connection with the seiz ure of the vessel were made today. Relatives of Alexander Solorzano, who headed the capturing party, are under arrest or surveillance, and the auth orities are making every effort to find those who furnished the conspirators with woman's clothing, in which some of them succeeded in getting aboard the vessel and aiding the rest of the party by advance work. The radicals refuse to credit the government re port that three of the plotters were killed when the ship was fired on as she drew away from the shore. PUSHING ON MANAGUA. San Juan del Stir., Feb. 11. Gen. Chammarro ami Gen. Macis of tho re volutionary army are pushing on to Managua from Muymuy, which they captured from an inferior force of gov ernment troops, according to dispatch es received today.

Robnett, in Boston recently, by announcing that Dr. Robnett is her fiancee. Dr. Robnett was tried for aggressive conduct toward Dr. Cowles, a civilian, and his defence was that Cowles had been ob noxious to Miss Hesler. In explaining why Dr. Robnett had a right to de fend her, Miss Hesler let the cat out of the bag amid much blushing. Dr. Robnett, whose picture is shown with hers, was as abashed at the an nouncement as Miss Hesler herself.

Indianapolis, Feb. 11. Senator Al bert J. Beveridge found a new turn to the old Lincoln aphorism, "'You can : fool all of the people some of the time, j you can fool some of the people all of ! the time, but you can't fool all of the ! people all of the time," at the banquet , of the Indiana Republican Editorial as-! sociation last night in the Claypool hotel. As Senator Beveridge stated it I in one of his most stirring and Vigor- j ous efforts, "nobody can fool all the people any of the time." With this as j a premise his advice to the republican j editors of the state was to tell the truth and let the democrats try to fool , the people if they cared to. The ad- I vice struck a responsive chord and the hearers applauded the sentiment igui-. ously. J "I do not believe that the American i people are following leaders." said Senator Beveridge. "I do not believe that any group of leaders controls vot ers, but that voters are controlled by that great leader of the universe, con science and judgment. I'pon this conception of the political party let us go to the people as our fathers did when this party was founded, upon ideals so high that factionalism could not be seen from the supreme heights. Urges Truthfulness, "Some person asked me what I thought the policies of the newspaper men ought to be. I gave it consider able thought and the best I could do for a suggestion along that line was this-I think your policy is to tell the truth. Leave it to the opposition press to play little politics. Leave the little personal falsehoods to them. That will lose them the confidence of men and women and discredit them in their fight. "Lincoln said.

The judgment of man in the mass is abso- lutely unerring in the end. Let our ! policy he simply to tell the truth, stand by it. and abide the results. As a mat-! nt fa Bh-,Trth i nrm ihat larger truth which is known by tne word sincerity. You gentlemen are , its torch-bearers. You occupy the greatest position among men, being able to hold up to the people the torch of sincerity and truthfulness from day to day, from week to week, and dur ing every month of every year. Many men do their business for cash, but if you do your work in the greatest sin cerity, keeping before you the ideals of truth, you are serving the minds and souls of your fellows. Let us go for ward with perfect fearlessness telling the truth not only as to our deeds, but as to our purposes. An Overwhelming Debt.

S PUBLIC HOLIDAY Saloons and Banks in This City Will Be Closed Tight Tomorrow. INVESTIGATION IS MADE Is tomorrow, Lincoln's birthday, a ega noidavv There seems to be some question in regards to the matter in the minds of the city officials. The doubt was oc casioned by the discovery of Mayor Shank of Indianapolis, who in looking over the Indiana statutes, found that the days to be known in Indiana as legal holidays for public offices left February Li out of the reckoning. The mistake was doubtless simply an over sight, but however, the fact that that date is left out makes it illegal it is said, to close municipal offices on that day. An attorney stated that he had look ed up the law on the subject and de clared that Lincoln's birthday is a le gal holiday insofar as the issuing of " " . " Vindn, nis chief counselors today. There commercial papers and the closing of i i ' . nA was a slight increase of fever as a re saloons Is concerned, according to one " .. ,. , ,.. statute However, he states, another statute does not provide for a legal holiday on this date In respect to the closing of public offices.
