Control of Property of Home
for Aged Colored People.
TAKES STAR FROM "SPECIAL"
Difference of opinion over the ex
penditure of mwney In the Mnkli,s
fnnd threatens the aolldarity of the
Negro Woman's Christian associa
tion, which opened a home for aged
colored people at 3029 Plnkney
street last September. A delegation
pf fourteen colored women, beaded
by Mrs. J. !!. Smith, called on Mayor
J. 0,' Dahlman and complained
against Hie faction headed by John
Grant Pegg. who holds an appointive
city position under the mayor.
Derlalon According to I.btt.
Mayor TVahlman decided thai the In
aurgent faction nhnuld have contrnl of
the property and that the Pegg faction
should go into court If they rlalmml any
rights. The mayor aatd he gave thla decl
alon under tho law which makes him
"chlof executive and conservator of the
peace," a function 'of hi office which
I aeldom exerclaea, he Raid.
With Mr, fimltri were Mr. Alfonso
Wilson, i halrman of the executive, com
mittee; Mr. Florence Rlgg. secre'tnry
of the association, and Mrs, Kva Walker,
trraaurrr. all of whom have affiliated
with the taction opposing the old regime.

John Grant I'cgg la a member of the
dvlaory board of eleven member, three
of whom have resigned. He la also chalr
msn of the house committee appointed by
the advisory board nd given power to
look after the property. When this dis
ruption became acute Mr. Pegg Tuea
day called on Acting Mayor Danl. Butler
and prevailed upon tha official to swear
John Jfurman In a a special officer to
car for th home. When Officer Hur
man started hi duties member of the
Insurglng faction telephoned the police
station and complained against the pres
ence of this officer at the home, adding
that h wcared the Inmates. Chairman
Pegg allege the Inmate consist of ona
matron and on elderly man. The mayor
ordered Hurmin't atar taken from him.
William N. Johnson and Mr. Dr. Qoden
are th other members of tho house com
mittee who are standing by Mr. Pegg.
Both Taction claim poaaesaion of tho
property.
Dlaaareeaarnt Starta Troable.
Th trouble started over a disagreement
a to whether certain money should bo
taken out of the sinking fund to par cur
rent expense. The sinking fund amounts
to $112. Tho home was bought for $10
on payments.
Having the president, secretary, treas
urer and chairman of the executive com
mittee of the association on their side,
the Insurgents expect to reorganise and
carry on the work of th home, which
they believe will be a successful Institu
tion In th course of time.

Head Off Thte Graft
The lawmaJken at 'Lincoln should
be made to nndentand that there it
no excuse for reviyingr the jail feed
ing? graft by the proposed bill fir
ing1 the sheriff 40 cents a day for
feeding- each prisoner in his cus
tody. For fire years the furnishing of
food to the prisoners was let by
contract at a cost to the taxpayers
of 19 centa a day on a two-meal
basis, equivalent to not to exceed 27
centa a day on a three-meal basis.
The present sheriff himself put in
a bid, in the name of a sister-in-law
to feed the prisoners for 19
cents a day. on which he had fig
ured himself a profit, yet now
wants to run the cost up on the tax
payers to 40 cents a day.
The Bee invites the other Omaha
newspapers to join in heading off
this graft.

Ladies! Darken

Look years younjrer! Uae . Grand
mother's recipe of Sage Ten nnd
Sulphur nnd nobody will know.
The use of Sage and Sulphur for re
storing faded, gray hair to Its natural
color dates back to grandmother's time.
She used It to keep her hair beautifully
dark, glossy, and abundant. Whenever
her hair fell out or took on that dull,
faded or streaked appearance, this elm

effect ' 1

any drug store for a 60 cent bottle of
"Wyeth's Ssge and Sulphur Compound,"
you will gof . this famous old recipe

natural color and beauty to the hair and
Is splendid for dandruff, dry, feverish,
Itchy scalp and falling hair. ,
A well-known down town druggist says
It darkens ths hair so naturally and
evenly that nobody can tell It has been
applied. You simply dampen a sponge
or soft brush with It and draw this
through your hair, taking one strand at
a time. By morning the gray' hair dis
appears, and after another application or
two it becomes beautifully dark, glossy,

SOAP IS BAD ,
FOR THE HAIR
. . . . . . t .
Soap should be used very sparingly,'
if at all. If you want to keep your hair
looking Its best. Most soaps and pre
pared shampoos contain too much
alkali. This dries the ' sealp,1 -makes
the hair .brittle, . and ruins it ;
The best thing for steady ' use Is'
Just ordinary : mulsifledoooanut pU
(which i pure- - and-.- greaaeles)w (is '
cheaper and. better -than soap1 .or, -anything
else you oan us. '
. One or two teaspoonfuls wAl cleanse
the hair and acalp thoroughly. Sim
ply moisten the hair with water and
rub It in. It makss an abundance of .
rich, creamy . lather, which rinses out
easily, removing every, particle ' ot
dust, dirt, dandruff and) excessive oil.
The hair dries quickly and evenly,
and it leaves the scalp soft, and the
hair fine -and silky,-bright, lusturous,
fluffy and easy to manage.
