IS AWARDED REGALIA
CONTRACT BY SHRINE
In competition with several other
regalia companies, the American Re
galia company of Rock Island was
awarded the contract for furnishing
the White Shrine of Rock Island with
its paraphernalia. There are 300
memlers of the local shrine and the
costume of the lodge is most elab
orate. The local firm, unftrr the man
agement of Theodore Eichelsdoerfer,
holds similar contracts with many of
the other lodges.

dently the system that was employed
in getting the names was, in some in
stances at least, poor, for there are
countless mistakes, all of which will
go towards rendering the petitions in
valid. For instance, there are dozens
of names repeated, the signer appar
ently never refusing to attach his
name to a petition which came within
reach. Then, too, there are a consid
erable number of names signed accom
panied by an "X" and the inscription,
"his mark." Inasmuch as there are

Cases are frequent where whole
sheets of the petition may be regarded
invalid through having been filled in
by one person. The law specifies that
the signature, the address and the date
must be in the handwriting of the
signer. On many pages the addresses
and dates have been filled in, in what
is unmistakably the handwriting of
one person . There are even instances
of a dozen names in a row appearing
in identical handwriting.

afternoon after a careful examination
of the list as prepared for the public,
"I think possibly a third of the signa

time we could cut the number still fur

the names were megrble, no record

been so many reports of names having
been used without even the consent

be well for every voter to scan the
names carefully. They have not been

ESTATE MAN'S STORY
Ellis T. Drawley, special agent for
the Louisiana Delta Farms company,
and associated with J. W. Stewart,
real estate agent at 216 Safety build

"Having been troubled with ner

nights, I determined to try Plant Juice
on the advice of reliable parties, and

from the very start. Therefore, I take
pleasure in recommending it. I felt
there was no harm in trying it at

thing in order to obtain slep. I am
now sleeping fine and have used only
one bottle. I intend to contfnue its
use for permanent results."

should prove of unusual interest to
those suffering with similar troubles.
