Resort Where Liquor Has
Been Illegally Sold For
Years Is Burned
Waynesboro, Pa., March 13. — By
the destruction by fire early Tues
day morning of the "Red Hen," a
joint in the vicinity of Pen Mar
Park, where liquor of a doubtful
character was disposed of for many
years, it removes from the resort
sections the last vestige of an enter
prise of this sort. TliS" "Red Hen,"
as it was called and familiarly
known, had been the scene of much
debauchery, and was for several
years an eye-sore to many persons
living in the vicinity or visiting the
famous Blue Ridge resort. The
building was erected several years
ago by the late Benjamin Shockey.
It was the last of the grog shops
to close, however, and its destruc
tion by fire was the fate of all the
other hotels and liquor stores at
Highfield, Blue Mountain and near
the Cascades. All of these large
ftostelries, with a barroom attach
ed, were burned to the ground by
incendiarism or otherwise.
The "Red Hen" did a thriving
business with those visiting Pen Mar
from Virginia, West Virginia and
parts of Maryland that were dry,
and often these imbibers of liquor
gotten there, drifted into the park
under its influence and caused con
siderable annoyance to thoSe gather
ing at the resort for pleasure. It
got so bad that it was deemed nec
essary by the court at Hagerstown
to refuse to grant a license to the
Chnmbersburg, Pa., March 13.
Investigation of rumors circulated
throughout the county that David
Dice, of Social Island, near here,
was suffering with an attack of the
"sleeping sickness" which has been
reported as prevalent in various
parts of the country as an after-ef
fect of influenza, revealed tho fact
that, although comatose, Mr. Dice
is not afflicted with an sleeping
sickness resultant from Influenza,
but that his abnormal sleepiness is
occasioned by an injury to his head,
which he received several years ago
when he fell from a hay wagon.

It's really a aimple matter for any
woman t.o merit this praise since
beautiful hair is only a matter of
care. .
When your hair becomes faded, dry,
streaked and scraggly, when it falls
out badly and new hair cannot grow,
the roots must be vitalised and prop
erly nourished. To do this quickly,
safely and at little expense there is
nothing so effective as Parisian
Sage (liquid form) which you can
get at Kennedy's IJrug Store or any
drug or toilet counter. It's guaran
teed to abolish dandruff, stop scalp
itch and falling hair, and promote
a new growth or money refunded.
It's In great demand by women of
taste and culture because It makes
the hair soft, lustrous, easy to ar
range attractively and appear much
heavier than It really Is.
A massage with Parisian Saga Is
a real delight—easy' to use, not
sticky or greasy, and delicately per
fumed an antiseptic liquid free
from dangerous Ingredients, and
guaranteed not to color the hair or
scalp. If you want godd-looklng hair
and plenty of it use Parisian Sage.
Don't deluy—begin tonight—a little
attention now Insures beautiful hair
for j ears to come. i

"After the mixture has been well agi

Hershey asked, "Do you see these sta
tionary pipes and valves? The mixture
goes through these pipes and valves down

"The mixture is frozen by means of
an artificial freezing process, and no ice
or salt or any other outside freezing agent
is used."
The Ad man stopped him here, say
ing, "You did not tell me anything about
when you put the flavor in the mixture."
"Well we are coming to that directly,"
replied Mr. Hershey, "let us*go down

show you."
Mr. Hershey then pointed out how
the flavor was added to the mixture
right at the freezer before freezing

"How long does it take to freeze the

"Not very long," replied Mr. Hershey,
"about eight 'minutes are sufficient.
Then after it is frozen, the ice cream
goes direetly from the freezer into these
large cans.
"You see we freeze the cream right in
sight of the public. People passing on
the street can look right into our freez

"When the can is full it is .covered
