Serious Muddle in Financial
Affairs of One of Snyder
County's Big Districts
Stiiibury. Pa., Feb. 21.—Shamokin
Dam and' Monroe township, Snyder
county, a prosperous suburban ter
ritory along the Susquehanna river,
just opposite Sunbury, is in the
thrills of a sensation that has set
the place agog and the tongues to
wagging as they never wagged be
This followed a public hearing by
the auditors of the accounts of the
school district, in effort to clear up
a serious financial muddle in the
school district's accounts. Sensation
followed sensation, and testimony
brought disclosures that may result
in criminal prosecutions.
J. Ira Heiser, secretary of the
board, churchman and property
owner, who sent out checks for bills
totaling $2,000, which evidence
showed were never paid, was ab
sent front the meeting, although
subpoenaed. His two children said
lie was visiting relatives at Sunbury.
The school tax rate has jumped
from four to fourteen mills, and a
$134)00 debt on a new schoolhouse
remains unpaid, according to the,
auditors, S. M. Troxell, Kobert App !
and Theodore Hununell.
A. B. Dauberman, of Kratzerville, j
had advanced $375 and $390 on two ■
notes to Heiser, thinking the money
for school uses. William Frymire. I
a former treasurer, and George Jar
-ret. of Philadelphia, a former school .
board member, whose names were
on the paper as makers for the dis
trict. denied the signatures, declar
ing them to be forgeries, and as
serted that they never heard ot' tli* ;
notes. The notes do not bear the ;
official seal of the school district.
Testimony showed that Hei6er was (
authorized to borrow $5OO from a
Sunbury bank. The note, however, '
was drawn for $1,200 and the ex- ,
tra $5OO is missing, according to the j
school board.
Heiser lives near Kratzerville. Ac- i
cording to his friends he is a man of ,
exemplary habits, temperate, thrifty i
and a member of the Lutheran
Church. He is a man of some prop- j
erty, but it was said at the hearing i
that it is encumbered, but to what |
extent is not known. As yet Heiser j
has made no statement eoncernlng !
the affair.

Careless Use of Soap
Spoils the Hair
Soap should be used very care
fully, If you want to keep your hair
looking Its best. Most soaps and
prepared shampoos contain too much
alkali. This dries the scalp, makes
the hair brittle, and ruins It
A The best thing for steady use Is
just ordinary mulsified cocoanut oil
(which is pure and greaseless), and
is better than the most expensive
soap or anjxhing else you can use.
One or two teaspoonfuls Willi
cleanse the hair and scalp thorough
ly. Simply irtoisten the hair with wa- !
ter and rub it in. It makes ah abun
dance of rich, creamy lather, which
rinses out easily, removing every par
ticle of dust, dirt, dandruff and ex
cessive oil. The hair dries quickly
and evenly, and it leaves the scalp
soft, and the hair fine and silky,
bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy to
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at any pharmacy, it's very cheap, and
a few ounces will supply every mem
ber of the family for months.—Adv.
