through the wooden coach at the'
rear of the local. All the killed and !

cued with difficulty. Escaping steam
added to the suffering of the victims.

Combing Won't Rid
Hair of Dandruff
The only BUre way to get rid of;
dandruff is to dissolve it. then you '
destroy it entirely. To do this, get J
about four ounces of ordinary liquid ;
arvon; apply it at night when retir- \
ing: use enough to moisten the scalp i
and rub it in gently with the finger :
Do this tonight, and by morning, i
most if not all, of your dandruff will !
be gone, and three or four more ap-!
plications will completely dissolve
and entirely destroy every single sign
and trace of it, no matter how much
dandruff 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,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a~hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at a'nv
drug store. It is Inexpensive and
never fails to do the work.
The Busy
Coal Season
A HEAVY snowfall with the mercury dis
appearing from the bottom of the ther
mometer brings customers flocking for their
supply of fuel.
Then it is that coal dealers have need t>f
large facilities. When coalbins are nearly
empty you want your order filled quickly.
Our business has been built with a view
of taking care of rush orders. Our three
large coalyards are placed at advantageous
points for making prompt deliveries.
One yard at 15th & Chestnut Sts., on

Stories of Greece and Rome. —
Edward Lucas White, whose vividly
realistic story of ancient Rome, "The
Unwilling Vestal," was published last
spring by E. P. Dutton & Co., has
made a collection of his short stor
ies dealing with life in Greece and
Rome during the centuries just be
fore and just after the Christian era
which the Duttons will bring out
in book form about the middle of
January. Mr. White, who has been
a student and teacher of the classic
literatures and of the civilizations
which produced them, is quite as i
familiar with the life and times and
characteristics of the men and wo
men who made "the glory that was
Greece and the grandeur that was!
Rome." as the novelist of current
times is with the life of to-day. and
he has a peculiar facility for malt- •,
ing those far-gone days come gra- j
phlcally alive again. % Tlie same gift I
won very wide reading for his his- j
torical romance, which was also one J
of the most realistic of novels. "El j
Supremo," published by E. P. Dut- j
ton & Co. two years ago, which gave
a picture of life in South America •
a hundred years ago combined with
| a complicated story of intrigues and |
| ambitions, dangers and adventures ,
! and love-making.
Antomobllc Liability. —"lf you of
; fer your car and chauffeur for the
free use of another," says John A.
Post in his little book, "Automobile
Liability and How to Deal With It,"
just published by E. P. Dutton &
Co., basing Ills opinions upon court
decisions in various states, "you re
main responsible; but if one borrows
' your car he operates it at his own
: risk. In all cases where the owner
! has reason to know that he is en
trusting his car, to operate, to some
one who is incompetent to do so
| without danger to the public, he is
responsible. Also, if he undertakes
to teach another to drive his car,
1 he takes the risk, but probaly not if
the pupil owns the car unless it is
pursuant to some contract of selling.
When your chauffeur is operating
the car in the course of his employ
ment, partly or wholly, you are re
sponsile as though you were so do
ing. But if at the time he was sole
ly proceeding upon his own private
' business with or without your con
sent you would not be liable."
! One of the famous authors of
South America will be presented to
j American readers within two or

j MarmoVs historical novel, "Anialia."
j Marmol was an Argentine whose
1 span of life covered the years from

. poet, dramatist and novelist, but a
i statesman and patriot also. As a
j deputy representing Buenos Aires
i he defied the despot, Rosas, and was
banished by him. Later he retutn
j ed add stoutly upheld the rights of
i the people. As an author he is most
widely known, both in his own and
other countries, by "Amalia," which
has long been familiar to European
readers in several languages and is
considered to be one of the best
productions in all South American

Just released by the censor, shows
troops on the deck of a transport
which has just been torpedoed. They

money they will have to work more
