Hunger was the motive for the theft
of a dinner pail and some articles of
nominal value yesterday afternoon at
the Rock Island roundhouse by Harry

he entered the roundhouse yesterday
had not had anything to cat for some
time, and could but faintly remember
a square meal. He went to the round
house to try to secure work. On his
way through the roundhouse he noticed
one of the? lockers used by the employes
for their personal belongings, and in
that locktvr was a dinner pail. The pail
was fairly well stocked, and Brown ap

good opportunity for comparing

Machine company as compared with

won high favor with voters who tried
both systems. The value of the ma

icw of the fact that Iowa has remov

legally enving to the fact that they
could not be installed at a sufficiently

but in the upper precincts ef the Third
and Sixth wards they were placed in
the booths, and the majority of voters
after casting a legal Australian ballot
tried a hand at the new machine. The

could be cast o'n the machine in one-
third the time that was required by
hand. Demonstrators were present to
instruct the citizens, but the fast work
that, was done on the machines was by
those entirely inexperienced in its use.
It was the general impression that
had the machines been in the precincts

could have used them with ease. As
the county board agreed that they
would purchase if the general impres
