-Wilfred Belleveau." possessed of the
powers of a Svengall. was committed
to the Nana Hospital for tho Insane to
day by Superior Judge Arnot. Mrs,
C. Wlllard. who was arrested with
Belleveau at her home In Berkeley last
night, will be examined as to her san
Ity tomorrow.
In the meantime physicians are en
gaged in a vain effort to release her
from the hypnotic hysteria In wnicn
the hypnotist left her when ne was
himself bereft of reason. The strange
couple had been holding a hypnotlo
orgy in the Wlllgrd bungalow forsev
eral davs. The woman's husband ren
to Denver last Wednesday and she and
Belleveau, it is said, began a wild se
ries of orgies which startled the neigh
borhood. There were shouts and
songs, laughter and tears and much
noise. Neighbors importuned the po
lice to stop the noise, but nothing was
done until yesterday, when the man
and woman were arrested.
Mrs. Wlllard. after being taken to
the Receiving Hospital, told the police
that Belleveau had cast a spell over
her. He told her that her husband
had died on the train en route to Den
ver and that he was the husband's re-
Incarnated spirit. She believed him,
So they celebrated the death and tbe
reincarnation until the police interfered.
Belleveau was found to be a raving
maniac, violent, incoherent and abus
ive. Mrs. Wlllard's condition was
hardly better. She could not remove
her eyes from the tailor, who is
short, uncouth man and who has none
of the characteristics of. a dominant
personality. Physicians at the hospi
tal and the observation of neighbors
are authority for the statement that
the tailor exercised a hypnotic spell
over Mrs. Wlllard from the first time
they met.
Neighbors have telegraphed the hus
band of the woman and he will arrive
tomorrow, when a desperate effort will
be made, with his aslstance. to bring
Mrs. Wlllard back to her normal men
tal condition.
"The Hair and scalp require sham
pooing nearly as often in winter as
during the summer." writes Mrs. Mae
Martyn in the Philadelphia Star, "and
when a woman neglects this important
duty her hair soon becomes oil-laden
and unmanageable.
"A soothing and cleansing shampoo
mixture can be prepared at little cost
by dissolving a teaspoonful canthrox
in a cup of hot water. This rubs into
a thick, white lather, stops the Itching
almost instantly, and dissolves every
particle of dust, dandruff and excess
oil. Rinsing leaves the scalp clean and
healthy, while the hair dries evenly
and quickly, taking on a charming
softness and rich gloss. Occasional
shampoos with canthrox encourage the
hair to grow long and abundantly."

Helpful Hints on
Hair Health
Scalp and Hair Troubles
Generally Caused by
Dandruff is a contagious disease
by a microbe which also produces bald
ness. Never use a comb or brush be
longing to someone else. Ho matter
how cleanly the owner may be, these
articles may be infected with microbes.
which will infest your scalp. It is far
easier to catch hair microbes than it
is to get rid of them, and a single
stroke of an infected comb or brush
may well lead to baldness. Never try
on anybody else s hat. Many a hat
band is a resting place for microbes.
If you happen to be troubled with
dandruff, itching scalp, falling hair or
baldness, we have a remedy which we
believe will completely re!le-o these
troubles. We are so sure of this that
we offer it to you with the understand
ing that It will cost you nothing for the
trial if it does not produce the results
we claim. This remedy Is called Rexall
"93" Hair Tonic. We honestly believe
it to be the most scientific remedy for
scalp and hair troubles, and we know
of nothing else that equals it for effec
tiveness, because of the results it has
produced In thousanas of cases.
Rexall "93" Hair Tonic is devised to
banish dandruff, restore natural color
when its loss has been brought about
by disease, and make the hair naturally
silky, soft and glossy. It does this be
cause it stimulates the hair follicles,
destroys the germ matter, and brings
about a free, healthy circulation of
blood, which nourishes the hair roots,
causing them to tighten and grow new
hair. We want everybody who has any
trouble with hair or scalp to know
that Rexall "93" Hair Tonic is the best
hair tonic and restorative in existence,
and no one should scoff at or doubt this
statement until they have put our
claims to a fair test, with the under
standing that they pay us nothing for
the remedy If it does not give full and
complete satisfaction In every particu
