Druggists who sell intoxicating liquor in Kansas under permits from the probate court must require pur chasers of whiskey to sign the affida vits in ink. If the affidavits signed in lead pencil, even though there be no criminal intent on the part of the druggist, he is guilty of violation of the prohibitory law ac cording to a decision handed down by the supreme court Saturday. Th court upheld the ruling of Judge Moore in a case appealed from Morris county. C, A. Gregory, a Council Grove pharmacist, was the defendant in the case. At the trial in the dis trict conrt it was shown by the evi dence that in the instance of sale oi which the prosecution was based the purchaser of intoxicating liquor had written his signature on the affidavit with a lead pencil. Intent to. violate the law was not shown but the court holds that it was the defendant's business to see to it that the affidavit was signed in ink. CLUB WOMENREELECT.
