Who Secured Them.
There are many rumors afloat as to
late developments in the movement
to recall Mayor H. M. Schriver under the
guise of the "recall league," not the
least Important of which is that many
signatures have been secured under
a misrepresentation on the part of
the solicitor or misapprehension on
the part of the signer, coupled with
the further fart that sentiment has
completely changed throughout the
city during the past week.
It will be exceedingly interesting
In view of these events to note the
rame of all who sign the recall pe-l
titlons in the event of their filing;
who were instrumental in securing
certain signatures as indicated by the
sworn statement at the bottom of
each page and in fact many other
t nines Appertaining to the movement.

It is very doubtful if the required per
cent of the bona 'fide voters and they
must be bona fide legal voters and
duly attested as such could be se
cured to such a petition, and hence
It is due to the people that the names
be carefully sifted by the commission
and published to the end that the
people may have full knowledge of
every angle of the proceeding.

MADE BY MOTHER
Rev. Granville H. Sherwood, rector
of Trinity church yesterday wore a
chasuble which was made by his moth
er Borne 20 years ago. The vestry of
the Church of the Redeemer at Elgin
presented him with the robe, following
a request by him that he be allowed to
purchase or replace it.
Recently Mr. 6herwood visited the
Church of the Redeemer ana ex
pressed admiration of the beautiful
vestment worn by the rector, Rev. Wil
liam Bedford-Jones. He was astonish
ed when told that his own mother had
made It. Upon learning later that
Rev. Bedford-Jones was contemplating
going into another field, he communi
cated with the Elgin vestry, seeking
to get the Tobe for sentiment.
Mr. Sherwood's mother has been
dead 15 years.
The Danger After Grip
lies often in a run-down system. Weak

the glorious tonic, blood purifier and
regulator of stomach, liver and kid
