This Makes the Curl
Stay in Your Hair
The sllmerine method of curling the ;
hair is unusually popular just now. 1
according to the druggists. This is j
largely due to the warm weather nnd
■because women are now spending so j
, much of their time out of doors. ,
Liquid silmerine not only produces :
(the loveliest, natural looking curls
,and waves, but it keeps the hair in :
;curl no matter how hot or how moist ;
the day, or how hard the wind blows. !
It is simply wonderful how this
harmless liquid converts the stralght
■ est. lankest hair into such pretty
curlv locks in a single night. All one
need do is to wet a clean tooth brush
with liquid silmerine at bedtime.
.draw this through the hair, and in
the morning she finds her hair has
.dried in just the sweetest waves and
crinkles. A few ounces will keep
ithe hair curly for many weeks. It
"will also keep it beautifully soft,
; silky and lustrous.

Doeks and Railroads Not of
Much Use in Peace Time;
Market Value For Food
Fori*. July 13. France will of
fer to take over American military
property in France, consisting main
ly of docks, railways and real es
tate, at one-fifth of its cost to the
Americans, according to a statement
given to the Associated Press by
Louis Morel, under secretary of.
State for the liquidation of stocks.
M. Morel said that what seemed to
be a low offer in realty is liberal be
cause much of the military construc
tion will be of little value in peace
Many miles of railway tracks, he
said, are mostly sidings located
where they would be useless under
peace conditions. Ten thousand pas
senger automobiles and 50,000 trucks,
owned by the Americans, he said,
"would ruin the French automobile
industry if unloaded on the French
have 1,300 locomotives and
17,000 freight cars," he said, "which
are too large for our railways and
too heavy for our tracks."
An enormous amount of lumber
scattered through France, Belgum.
Luxemburg and Alsace is owned by
the Americans. M. Morel said there
was nearly enough lumber to re
build the devastated regions, but
that persons who lost brick or stone
structures are unwilling to accept
wooden cottages as homes.
Food at Market Value
The supplies most attractive to the
French population are the many mil
lion pounds of flour, rice and beans
held by the Army. On armistice day,
according to high officials of tlie
Quartermaster's Department. there
were American rations in France suf
ficient for a year .and flour, rice and
beans enough to feed a million men.
Some of these supplies have been
used at American camps, but much
These supplies, M. Morel said, will
be purchased at market prices on the
basis of foreign exchange prevailing
prior to the armistice, when the
American dollar was worth five
francs, forty-five centimes.
On the thousands of small automo
biles which would be released for
sale under the proposed agreement
the French government would re
serve the right to charge 66 per cent,
duty on the actual purchase price.
The French government's proposal,
to be made through M. Morel, will be
presented to C. W. Hare, American
director of sales, who is expected to
arrive here to-day with a staff of
Foods and other movable stores, it
was said, probably will be returned
to the United States.
Cruelty in Prison Camps
Is Admitted by March
Washington, D. C., July 24. Ad
mission that American soldiers, held
in prisons and camps in and near
Paris, suffered brutalities for which
several minor officers were convicted
in court-martial proceedings was ob
tained from General March, chief of
staff, late yesterday by a special
House War Investigating Commit
The prisoners, as far as the rec
ords showed, were held because of
absence without leave late last year
from their military units, and a ca
blegram from General Pershing sent
three days ago from Paris declared
'some of these men were among the
hardest characters in the American
Expeditionary Force."
General Pershing's cablegram, sent
in response to an inquiry of the War
Department after its attention had
been called to alleged mistreatment
of the prisoners, disclosed the con
viction against four officers at Prison
Farm No. 2 and its adjoining stock
ade. Two of the officers, it said,
were imprisoned after being found
guilty by court-martial. Conviction
of four other noncommissioned offi
cers was disclosed by jeports of
Brigadier General Edward A. Kreger,
acting Judge advocate general.
Lieutenant Frank H. Smith, the
well-known "hard-boiled" officer in
charge of Farm No. 2, it was dis
closed, is serving an 18 months' sen
tence at Governor's Island because
of his maltreatment of prisoners.
Smith, the chief of staff explained,
came from Kentucky, and was sent
to Europe after he had tried to get
a commission in the Philippine Scouts.
Smith's original sentence of three
years was reduced by reviewing au

whoops with their lusty voices, about
40 dr 50 of the "Y" boys, carrying
flashlights, broke into Camp Shikel

the cheerful campfire. Archie Dins
more was bringing the boys in from

A large circle was formed around
the campfire and the visitors were
initiated into some of the mysteries
of the order of the Red Rog, Blue
Rog and Green Rog.
Archie Dinsmore then led the boys
in their songs, chants and camp
yells and related various stories and
gave interpretations of Indian lore.
From the tent of the great Medicine
Man came "Doc" Miller, who had
been busy building a prize-winning
design in u medicine cabinet for
first-aid remedies. But as the boys
are such a healthy, chearful lot, the
"Doc" thinks the cabinet will most
likely have to be turned over to the
commissary for a kitchen cabinet.
The stunts that "Doc" and Archie
puts them through is nature's best

Court Decrees Will Not Count
if Proposed Law Goes
Washington, D. C., July 24. The
enforcement of war-time prohibition
will present no legal difficulties If
the Volstead prohibition enforcement
bill become a law. Attorney General
A. Mitchell Palmer stated.
Mr. Palmer Indicated that if the
bill went through Congress providing
no liquors containing more than one
half of one per cent, of alcohol shall
be sold, there would be no further
consideration given to Federal court
decisions so far as the war-time pe
riod was concerned. This action, he
indicated, woula be unhesitatingly
taken because of the vast discretion
ary powers lodged in the government
and its agents by all general war
time legislation.
Regarding enforcement of consti
tutional prohibition. Mr. Palmer fore
sees possible difficulty. when the
wets begin their fight against the
power of Congress to define intoxicat
ing liquor. This may introduce com
plications which the Attorney Gen
eral interprets do not exist in con
nection with the war-time enforce
Senate May Drop Treaty
The entire war-time section of the
bill may become inoperative if the en
forement legislation is kept in the
Senate long. Senator Sterling, chair
ma;; of the subcommittee drafting
the bill, expects to report the mea
sure to the full Judiciary committee
by the end of the week, and it is ex
pected to get the bill into the Senate
early in August.
Senators to-day said consideration
of the Peace Treaty would give way
to prohibition if necessary, although
some members have expressed the
belief that it would be delayed until
the Treaty debate is at an end. The
dry leaders, however, will press for
early consideration and the passage
of the bill is now anticipated early
in September, if not sooner.
According to War Department esti-
mates demobilization will have made
sufficient progress by that time to
warrant President Wilson in declar
ing the war-time prohibition at an
