"Diana of the Dunes" is ence more In the limelight. She now, it is said, has a cave man. If romance has finally come into the life of ' Diana of the Dunes." Miss Alice M. Cray, the former University of Chi cago student who for four years has lived as a recluse in the dunes east of 'Gary, it took a "cave man" to bring It to her. Kifle in hand and ready revolver on his hip. he was surrounded on the crest of one of Diana's hills by a posse, in the- most vivid movie style, and captur ed, accused of house breaking. "Oh, yes." said Marshal Alfred Til lapaush of Chesterton, Ind.. who was one of yie raiders, "we were all around him and got the drop on him before lie could shoot. He's a strapping: hiff fel low, 6 feet 4 inches. He and that girl you call Diana of the Dunes are friend ly; he's been getting things to eat from her." Ralls Prom Texas. The marshal says that the prisoner is booked at Valparaiso as George "Wilson of Texas, but that he claims to be I.uthr McCarty, the noted prize fighter who six years ago knocked out such men as Carl Morris. Al Kaufman. Jim Flynn. the rtieblo Fireman, and Al Tal ler: and fought a ten-round draw with Jess AVillard. McCarty was also 6 feet 4 inches tall but. alas for the romance of the Giant of the Dunes, McCarty was killed in the ring at Calgary. Alberta, more than five years ago. in a fight with Arthur Telkey.

After a recent rain tootsteps from one of the cottages were followed in tn direction of the cottage where lives Diana of the Dunes, in reality Misa Alice M. Gary. Careful inquiry at her cottage brought the information that a large man had been a visitor at her cottage at intervals, but she knew nothing about the thefsf. Likes Wild Life. For four years Diana of the Dunes has been the most interesting character in all northern Indiana. As a student she was very bright, a skillful typist, and fitted to make a good living if she had chosen the ordinary way. Instead, she built herself a scanty shelter in the sand hills northeast of Gary, dressed like an Indian squaw and lived entirely In the open. LIST NOT IN BEFORE FEBRUARY (Continued from page one.) which has been set, the office is operat ing three shifts of workers; 500 women and young men work from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. and two shifts of limited service soldiers labor through the.nlght. SWASrpTNO THE NEWSPAPERS. Every cablegram now received from the overseas casualty records office comprises approximately seventy-five typewritten rages. Until a week or two ago the cablegrams came in code, neces sitating forty-eight hours for decoding each list, which frequently resulted in errors and rechecking. Much time has been saved by a recent order abolishing the use of the code. The checking of each and every re port several times before it is tele graphed to the next of kin still causes some delay, but it reduces the numoer cf errors. Unless mistakes In the lists are discovered, names received today are telegraphed to the next of kin with in forty-eight hours and are published by the newspapers eight days later. The office doubts whether the press will be able to handle 20,000 records a week. A radical change may be made in the pub lication of casualty lists if many news papers complain that they are being swamped. BELAYS IN TB&NCE. Notifications are going out to rela tives a litle more promptly than before because of the adoption of a new sys tem of cabling the names of the seri ously wounded. For a time these list 3 were brought to America by courier once a week. It is noted also that the overseas office is catching up on reports of the killed in action. Daily reports of this class average from fifty to 100 at present; not so long ago the daily total was very much larger and about a month ago several hundred deatn were reported to the office in one day. But officers here find it difficult to ex plain the delay of the office in France in reporting some cases. Every cable report gives the date when each man was killed, wounded or Missing in action. Most of the killed in action now being reported are for uctober and November. But a percent age of the reports deals with Septem ber and a few with August cases. First reports on some of the seriously wound ed cases still run as far back as July. One startling case is that of a soldier who was captured months ago. Report that he had escaped from the enemy and rejoined his command came in a few days ago; he had never been reported missing in action. BED CROSS WOTTED BATE HELPED. It has been well established that the War Department has not co-operated as it should with the Red Cross. No information can be obtained from a single official or worker in the latter or ganization, but it is easy to glean the truth from official "War Department statements and by talking with army officers. During the first few months of the war assistance was given by the War Department, the statistical divi sion answering all questions asked. Difficulty was first experienced last spring, when Gen. March announced that the emergency addresses of men whose names appeared in the casualty list would be published no longer. Re quests were made for these addresses, but the War Department replied that it was against the policy to give out the addresses'and that they would be given only in certain cases, which need not be described here. Tractically every one is agreed that the plan of giving out casualty news from Washington was the right one. News of that character checked in Washington is more likely to be ac curate than dispatches from overseas. Moreover, messages sent from abroad to Washington in official sacks are mom likely to reach the families interested in L PROVISIONAL HEAD OF FREE POLAND J' " , (rrfSr ? x i r4 MA Ignace Daszynski.

Generally speaking, the system has worked very well, the mail reaching Washington two or three days in advance of other Taxis mail. HAMSTEINQINQ THE BED CBOS3. The rule making the Red Cross mere ly an auxiliary to the War Department and restricting its news output to in formation supplementary to the official reports appeared reasonable at first; as a matter of fact, it has destroyed the value of the Red Cross work to a large extent. From the beginning, it has been learned at the War Department and at the capitol. Red Cross workers in France were informed that they need not send emergency addresses because they would be published by the War Department. In any event, the Rei Cross was forbidden to use the ad dresses in advance of the official re port's. Almost from the start the situ ation was bad because the official re ports were fo late. By lost spring the Red Cross had a distressingly large number of reports on wounded, sick and dead men with which it could do nothing. Kven if a father wrote to the organization about his son and the or ganization had the information it could not give the facts to the distressed father because the War Department did not have them. east ciiiP GQRPORALJAGK HOME Jno.

Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur. properly compounded, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowdays we simply ask at any drug store for Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound." You will get a large bottle I of this old-time recip Improved by the addition or other ingredients, at very little cost. Everybody uses this prep aration now. because no one can pos sibly tell that you darkened your ahir, as it does it so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a tlma; by morning the gray hair disappears, and after another application or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy and you look years younger.

Did vou ever look into an alarm clock and see the number of cog wheels? "Big Ben" phono graphs have just such a motor. A clock-work, cog wheel motor. Such a motor is all right irr a clock but not in a phonograph. A clock is a slow-going piece of machinery. A phono graph motor must move many times faster it also wears more quickly. "Big Ben" mo tors are made by "concerns who never made a nhonoorAnh or know nothing about the acous tic principles of sound. All "Big Ben" phonographs are assembled. The mo tor is made in New York; the cabinet by a furniture factory in Battle Creek; the tone arm and sound box in Boston, and the balance somewhere in France. The parts were not made for each other.
