Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 6. The United
States district court, Judges Cushman,
Gilbert and Rudkin, sitting en banc,
this afternoon denied the restraining
order asked v- the Seattle Brewing
and Malting company to prevent At
torney General Tanner from destroy
ing beer valued at $50,000, which the
company claims it is unable to ship
out of the state within the time pro
vided by the prohibition law.
It is predicted that an appeal will
be tBken to the United States supreme
which wins the admiration of tie most
(killed musicians. In the past Skov
gaard accompanied Walter Damrosch
and his famous New York Symphony
Urchestra as solo violinist appearing
in the larger cities of the United
States and Canada in Wagncs's great
est work. "Parsifal."
Music was born in Skovgaard. As a
child of tour he fashioned his first
"violin" out of a cigar box and at
the age of seven he was a child prod
iev astonishing all by his musical in
stinct and hiB "rapid development as a
musician. His teachers found in him
the readiest pupil imaginable for it was
only necessary to exemplify a uirti
cult passage once for the lad to re
peat it with an accuracy which many
others acquire only through years of
practice. When nine years old a lead
ing impressario took this wonderful
lioy on a concert tour including the
largest cities in Kurope.
As a mature artist Skovgaard has
revisited the scenes of his boyish tri
umphs, appearing in London, Paris and
Berlin, where he received flattering
recognition. His violin is a famous
Stradivarius and between himself and
the instrument there seems to bo an al
most living sympathy. As a performer,
Mr. Skovgaard is graceful and easy
in manner, his remarkable skill enab
ling him to perforin the most difficult
movements with such surprising case
that the uninitiated do not always ap
preciate his great talent.
A SIMPLE WAY TO
There is one sure way that has never
failed to remove dandruff at ouce, and
-that is to dissolve it, then you destroy
it entirely. To do this, just get about
four ounces of plain, common liquid ar
von from any drug store (this is all you
will need). bddIv it at night when retir
ing; use enough to moisten the scalp
and rub it in gently with tho finger
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dis
solve and entirely destroy every single
sign and trace of it, no matter how
much dandruff you may have.
You will find all itching and digging
ot the scalp will stop instantly, and
your hair will be fluffy, lustrous, gos
tiy, silky andsoft, and look and feel a
Lund red times better.
Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 6. The ques
tion of the constitutionality of the
state prohibition law, which was at
tacked in United States district court
here today by attorneys representing
the Seattle Brewing and Halting com
pany, will be decided this afternoon by
the three federal judges who are sitting
in the case. Arguments were con
eluded at noon and adjournment was
taken until 2 o'clock at which time the
court, consisting of Judges Cushman,
Gilbert and Rudkin, sitting en banc,
will announce a decision.
The action is in the nature of an
application for an injunction to pre
vent the Btate from stopping the manu
facture of beer by the Seattle Brewing
concern or forcing that company to
move or destroy its product valued at
$50,000, before January 11.
The brewing company was represent
ed by J. B. Howe, of Seattle. Attorney
General Tanner personally appeared in
court and opposed the petition for an
Attorney Howe said that as Attorney
General Tanner had moved to have the
case dismissed it should be clear that
the state realized that serious ones
Hons of law are involved. The Seattle
Brewing company, he said, had erected
a brewery at Seattle valued at more
than a million dollars. There are now
on hand 40.000 barrels of beer. This
oronertv. he declared, cannot be re
moved from the ststa within the ten
days allowed by the law
Judire Kudkin interrupted tue attor
ney to inquire whether the breweries
did not receive 13 months notice that
the law would go into effect on Jan
Howe admitted this point, but main
tained, that if it were lawful to sell
liquor until January 1, it was also law
ful to manufacturo it ami tnat me
beer so manufactured and sold up to
that time should not be destroyed, as
the state proposes to do, unless it be
shipped away bclore January ii.
Howe said the supreme court of the
state had rendered an opinion on tho
prohibition law, but not a decision.
The opinion, ho claimed, was merely
advisory and public policy undoubtedly
entered into the courts findings.
fiON NOT SURPRISED.
Berkeley, Cal., Jan. C Hearing of
Yuan Shi Kai's large reward offer for
his father, Dr. Bun, Fo Sun, University
of California student, commented to
day: "I am not surprised at tho size
of this reward, for Yuan Shi Kni would
like the death of my father and one or

accomplish nothing permanent in sup

they are out of the way."

New York, Jan. 6. England's con
scription bill cannot be regarded as a
result of the failure of the volunteer
system, and it is a serious mistake to
interpret it as a criticism of the re
luctance of a democracy to offer itself
freely for service on the battlefield.
Nearly 6.000,000 English subjects
have volunteered since the beginning
of the war, while the other belligerents
have used conscription from the outset;
moreover, Britain's response compares
fully with the conscript armies.
The ABquith forced service bill will
add comparatively few to the Tanks,
and the maximum estimate of 500,000
obtainable thus, may dwindle to 225,000.
Tho main purpose of the measure is not
to increase the armies decisively, but
to enable Premier Asquith to keep his
pledge to married men that if they
would come forward voluntarily they
would not be drafted into actual serv
ice until all the single men had been
Conscription in reality has not prov
en essential as a military measure in

They let the little squirrel within his

They brought this little pet along up
on this merry trip, yet no one in the
highbrow throng that filled the peaceful
ship had time to feed the ebbing
strength that faded day by day, and so
they let him starve at length the
squirrel passed away.
Although the squirrel was a joke, a
