Why Pearls jj
|! Are Rare
!; Pine Pearls come from oys- !j

11 For half thai time the Pearl !'
j; has been fashionable, and to
]! supply the demand grappling
!' hooks instead of divers are ]l
j; used to bring up the Pearl- Ij
11 bearing oysters. This meth- ]|

some fine fisheries and is rap- !'
I; idly depleting those which
j! remain. The I'earl prodne- ||
;! lion for 1014 is less than half ]!
|> lhat of the year before. | I
]! As the I'earl becomes scarcer ]
|! it becomes more fashionable |

DON'T USE SOAP
ON YOUR HAIR
When you wash your hair, don't
use soap. Host soaps and prepared
shampoos contain too much alkali,
which is very injurious, as it dries
the scalp and makes the hair brittle.
The best thing to use is just plain
mulsified cocoanut oil, for this is pure
and entirely greaseless. It's very
cheap, nnd beats soaps or anything
else all to pieces. You can get this
at any drug store, and a few ounces
will last the whole family for
Simply moisten the hair with
water and rub it in, about a tea
spoonful is all that is required. It
makes an abundance of rich, creamy
lather, cleanses thoroughly, and
rinses out easily. The hair dries
quickly nnd evenly, and is soft, fresh
looking, briaht, fluffy, wavy, and
easy to handle. Besides, it loosens
and takes out every particle of dust,
dirt and dandruff.- Adv.

POLICE CAPTURE HUGGER
Bryn Mawr Negro Comes to Grief
When He Tackles Cop Dressed
as Chic Miss
Philadelphia, Jan. 8. —As she
walked calmly along County Line road,
near Penn street, Bryn Mawr, about
dusk Wednesday night, an attractively
dressed young woman was seized by a
negro, who hugged her vigorously.
In a twinkling the hugger found him
self huigtged. A pair of brawny arms
shot from concealment under a spt of
jaunty furs, a chic hat tumbled to the
roadway, and the decidedly masculine
voice of Policeman Patsy Mullen, of
the Lower Merion force, was raised in
a triumphant shout. "I've got you this
time I've got you this time!"
A short, stout man, who, the negro
might have observed, was walking halt'
a block behind the "young lady," came
up on a run, jingling a pair of hand
cuffs. He was Policeman Beichner.
Mullen and Reichner, with the negro
safely handcuffed, roared with laugh
ter. But the prisoner couldn't see the
"Lawdy, missus, I mean mister, this
ain't no laughing matter to me," he
The prisoner, who gave the name of
Reed Johnson, 17 years old, Bryn
Mawr, was locked up in the Ardniore
station. His capture, the police be
lieve, will put a stop to annoyance of
young women and girls of Bryn Mawr
and Haverford. He admitted, the po
lice say, having hugged at least a doz
en women near -the corner where the
masquerading cop tripped him up.
Many complaints have been received
aibout, the hugger, and Policemen Mul
len and Reichner were detailed to cap
ture him. They saw Johnson in the
neighborhood and suspected him, but
could never catch him at his hugging
game. So they decided on the masque
Mullen togged himself out in a styl- j
ish dress, with fur boa and muff, low |
shoes and a hat that came down over I
his head, making a wig unnecessary. A j
veil helped a little, too.
"To make everything ' look just
right," said Reichner, "I insisted on
powder, so Mrs. Mullen attended to
As "Miss Dawson," the masquerad
ing Mullen was introduced to one of
the newer and younger members of the
force. "The new cop fell for 'her'
strong,'' said Reichner.
"I'm going to speak to the chief
about that new copper," Mullen volun
teered. "I think he was trying to flirt

POPE GREETS 600 EXPELLED
FROM SYRIA AND PALESTINE
Rome, Jan. B. Pope Benedict ves
terday received over 600 religious men
and women, Franciscans, Benedictines,
Dominican's, Passionists, Christian
•brothers and members of other orders,
who have been expelled from Syria and
Palestine. They recounted to His Holi
ness the details of their experiences but
told him there had been no loss of life.
The Turks, while they respected the
lives of the holy men, occupied all the
convents, monasteries and schools held
by the religious orders and transformed
them into barracks. They gave time,
however, to pilo the furniture into tlhe
churches anil' permitted the locking up
of places which could not be emptied,
like libraries which were sealed in the
presence of those interested.
The English and Russian communi
ties, according to the expelled church
men. were treated in the same way. The
Italian and Spanish consuls did all in
their power to assist the members of
the religious orders.
