Got Wages Twice. Charles Bank-
son, a man past 40 years of age, was
arrested by Police Officer Hamann, be
ing charged with obtaining money un
der false pretenses. Bankson boarded
at the Cottage hotel on Main street,
and until a few days ago was employ
ed by the Concrete Construction com
pany of Rock Island. He was finally
discharged and at the same time was
given an order on the company for the
wages due him. amounting to $15. In
stead of taking this order to his em
ployer's office he presented it to Mrs.
Christiansen, the landlady at the Cot
tage hotel. Bankson owed a $5 board
bill, and after deducting this amount
Mrs. Christiansen gave her boarder $10
m change. Before giving the order to
Mrs. Christiansen, Bankson had en
dorsed it and told her the company
would cash it for the full amount.
Bankson next crossed the river to the
company's office in Rock Island and
without being called upon to present
the order for his wages was given the
amount due him. Some time later
Mrs. Christiansen presented the order
for Bankson's wages which she receiv
ed from him to the company, expect
ing to receive the cash. She was
shocked to be informed that Bankson
had already drawn his wages and that
there was nothing more due him. Mrs.
Christiansen immediately reported the
matter to the police, but in the mean
time Bankson had gone on a big
drunk and had spent all the money by
the time he was arrested.

A CROWN OF GLORY
As Well as a Mark of Beauty, is Lux
It has been truly said that the crown
msr elory ot our race is a luxuriant
head of hair.
It used to be thought that this was
one of the blessings which the gods
bestow capriciously, and it is only re-
contly that scientists have discovered
that its beauty is dependent upon the
absence of a minute germ which flour
ishes In the hair follicles, where it de
stroys the life of the hair.
To restore this life and kill the
germs which ca-use the mischief is the
mission of Newbro's Herpicide.
Herpicide surely kills the germs, and
is the best hair dressing on the mar
ket It contains no grease or oil, neither
will it stain or dye.
