Washing Won't Rid Head of Dandruff The only sure way to get rid of dandruff is to dissolve it, then you de stroy it entirely. To do this, get about four ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; apply it at night when retiring; use enough to moisten the scalp and rub it in gently with the finger tips. Do this tonight, and by morning, most, if not all, of your dandruff will be gone, and three of four more ap plications will completely dissolve and entirely destroy every single sign and trace of it, no matter how much dan druff you may have. You will find, too, that all itching and digging of the scalp will stop at once, and your hair will be fluffy, lus trous, glossy, silky and soft, and look and feel a hundred times better. You can get liquid arvon at any drug store. It is inexpensive and never fails to do the work. Adv. . Hairs Will Vanish After This Treatment (Toilet Helps) You can keep your skin free from hair or fuzz by the occasional use of plain delatone, and in using it you need have no fear of marring or in juring the skin. A thick paste is made by mixing some of the pow dered delatone with water. Then spread on the hairs and after 2 or 3 minutes rub off, wash the skin and all traces of hair have vanished. Be careful, however, to get real delatone. Advertisement. How to Select Cleanser That Won't Ruin Teeth Most persons are themselves to blame for bad teeth and sums because of Ignor ing four vital facts: 1. Unwholesome teeth, Injured gums, invite germs by million. 2. "Grit" in a dentifrice la necessary to keep teeth perfectly clean, free from slalns, tar tar, etc. 3.

A report from Peking dated Sunday said the government was ex pected to break off relations Monday. i he appeal by the former president, Dr. Sun Yat Sen to Premier Lloyd George of England to stop the allies from trying to bring China into the war provoked discussion as to whether drastic action by the Chinese govern ment would be supported by the peo ple or would lead to popular uprising.

AdrrrtUemt- AMERICAN PATROLS IN CUBANSTATIONS Marines and Bluejackets Are in Other Places Besides the Port of Santiago. SITUATION IN THE INTERIOR Santiago, Cuba, March 13. From his base at Guantanamo Admiral Henry T. Mayo, commander of the United States Atlantic fleet, received reports today from at least five Cu ban shore stations where American forces have been landed. From none of them, however, came any evidence that the putting ashorj of the Ameri cans was the beginn'ng of interven tion. Five hundred marines and bluejack ets are in Santiago patrolling the city, while smaller detachments are doing similar duty in Guantanamo, Manzan illo and Neuvitas. The only interior station where American meno'-wars-nien have been placed is El Combre mine, a few miles from Santiago. The Americans here have been careful not ,to interfere in the least particular with the conduct of the civil govern ment, the officials appointed by the liberals before the evacuation of the city by their troops remaining in con trol. Situation in Interior. Just what the situation is in the interior is not known by the Ameri cans. The government advance forces, commanded by Pablo and Fausto Menocal, brothers of President Meno cal, arrived at San Luis today, which was evacuated yesterday by General Comacho, after brief fighting in which there were a few casualties. Rigo berto Fernandez, with his force of rebels, is at Songo, southeast of San Luis. This district is about 20 miles north of Santiago. The Menocal brothers said they would await re inforcements before advancing fur ther. The banks here remain closed under orders from their main offices. It is thought that the most practical reason for the closing of the banks is that much of the funds have been withdrawn by depositors, and that all the government funds, something in excess of $800,000 have been taken by the rebels. Ceasei to Be Closed Port. Santiago ceased to be a closed port yesterday. The Cuban gunboat Ma tanzas, which had been at the mouth of the harbor for two days, left this morning for Guantanamo. It had not been permitted to enter Santiago by Commander Reginald R. Belknap, commanding the American naval forces, who has the mine layer San Francisco and the cruiser Olympia in the harbor.

The ew Lloyd George government will meet the first difficult hurdle in the House of Commons Wednesday when Par liament will be asked to authorize a new policy in Indian affairs, plac ing a protective duty on cotton goods. Special preparations are being made by all parties in anticipation of a critical division. The reply of J. Austen Chamber lain, secretary for Indian affairs, to a deputation representing all sections of the Lancashire cotton industry to day seemed to imply that the govern ment intended to stand fast by its decision, in which case there would be a straight fight between the pro tectionists and free traders in Parlia ment and at the moment it is im possible to foresee the result, the or dinary party cleavages being dis turbed by the war. Mr. Chamberlain appealed to the Lancashire deputa tion, saying that India's financial as sistance in the war is needed and that the members ought, in a spirit of patriotism, waive their objections to the cotton duties, which were required to enable India to meet the interest on the war loan. I. W. W. Captives Made to Run Gauntlet of Clubs Seattle, Wash., , March 13. In re viewing conditions that culminated in the riot at Everett, Wash., last November S, when two members of a sheriff's posse and five members of a free speech expedition were killed, W. R. Booth, a member of the posse, testified at the trial in the superior court here today, of Thomas H. Tracy, accused of murder of Deputy Sheriff Beard, that on last October 30, he and other citizens escorted a party of "free speech" advocates to Bev erley Park, a suburb of Everett, and that while he did not participate in beating the captives, he heard from subsequent reports that they were made to run a gauntlet of clubs, wielded by their captors, and then were warned not to return to Everett. Smuts Would Not Give Up the African Colonies London, March 13. Lieutenant General Jan Christian Smuts, former commander of the expedition against the German forces in East Africa, and who recently was made a privy councillor, arrived in England today. General Smuts said the campaign in East Africa is virtually ended and that the operations against the rem nants of the Germans will be under taken by native troops, as white troops are unable to stand the climate long. He said East Africa is enor mously valuable, the Germans hav ing spent millions developing it. He declared the mere suggestion that any part of it be returned to Ger many is preposterous.
