By Washing It
When you wash your hair, be

Tle best thing to use Is Mulsified

pure and entirely greaseless. It's

all to pieces. You can get this at

Mrs. Josephus Daniels Presses
Button That Floods
Honolulu, T. H., Aug. 22.—With
j Mrs. Josephus Daniels, wife of the
j Secretary of the Navy, pressing the
j button that flooded the structure,
i the great Pearl Harbor drydock was
dedicated by Secretary Daniels yes
' terday.
The drydock is one of the largest
in the world. It is 1,001 feet long
and has an inside width of 138 feet

more than $5,000,000.
The dock and naval base have a
i setting in what is considered one
of the finest natural and most
beautiful harbors in the world. En
tirely landlocked in a Km of hills.
Pearl Harbor could anchor all the
naval fleets of the world out of view
from the open sea.
Pearl Harbor has an area of ap
proximately 10 square miles. Its
depth is approximately 60 feet. En

safe for all time by dregging and
other work done by the United
The dry dock had been under
construction since 1910. Its open
ing had been planned to take place
long before to-day but various de
lays and the war caused postpone
The most serious delay occured
when the entire bottom of the dry
dock upheaved suddenly, ruining all
work that had been done and de
laying construction for a year. First
theories were an earthquake had
caused the mishap. Then engineers
decided the dredged out bottom left
a floor softer than surrounding
terrain and the pressure of the lat
ter caused the center to upheave.
The accident necessitated a new
plan of construction. Concrete was
moulded into huge blocks, sub
merged and securely anchored.
From this beginning the other work
went rapidly forward.
The dock is operated by the latest
type of machinery. Electrically
driven pumps free the dock of

special feature is an exhibit of more

Famous Whistler Pictures
Now on View in
National Gallery
London, Aug. 22.—One of Whist
ler's most famous paintings, the
"Little White Girl," is now on view
in the National gallery to which it
was presented together with two
other Whistler paintings, "Cre
morne Lights'* and the "Fire
The "Little White Girl" was
painted in 1864 and exhibited at the
Royal Academy in 1865 where it
created a sensation and aroused
much hostile criticism. One critic
regretted that Whistler should
make the "most bizarre of bipeds"
out of the women he painted, and
an American critic described it as
a "powerful woman with red hair
and a vacant stare In her eyes."
Among the few who appreciated
its charm was Swinburne who after
seeing it wrote the poem, "Before
the Mirror." The picture, for
the model "Jo" sat, shows a
girl in a simple white gown leaning
against the mantle, her face re
flected in the mirror.
