limelight recently when \V. F. Ken

Applicants for Naturaliza

Renouncing all allegiance to foreign po
tentates, particularly to the ruler of the
lund of their nativity, 21 foreign horn
citizens were examined by Judge W. 1.

to their fitness to became American cit
izens. Seventeen filled all requirements
and were admitted, three were passed un
til the next hearing and one was rejected.
Each applicant was required to have
two witnesses to vouch for his character
and length of residence in tlie country.
The applicants and witnesses were exam
ined by Special Agent \V. \Y. Simmons of
the naturalization department of the fed
eral government, who questioned the
nould-he citizens closely as to their con
duct and habits and of their knowledge of
the laws of tire country they sought to
In two instances the applicants had
taken out their first papers or declared
their intention to become a citizen of the
United States in the county courts l»efore
the present naturalization laws were in
force. Under the old law' a man could
\ote as soon as he declared •ids Intentions.
The two applicants stated that they hail

vote until such papers are granted.
Judge Grubb stated that the applicants

“I have vl a large number of the
counties of Alabama and have addressed,
in the various large audiences to which I
have spoken, many thousands of voters.
I have been enthusastieally received
wherever I have been, and I believe that
there are more voters committed to me

“My platform is regarded as being the
most progressive upon which any candi
date has ever run for governor. My dec
laration for a constitutional convention so
as to abolish the pernicious fee system,
thus placing all county officials on sal
aries. so as to permit local taxation for
public schools, a reform of our judiciary
system and removing Innumerable bar
riers in the present constitution, which Is
but a hindrance to the growth and de
velopment of the state, appeals to every
forward-looking mind.
“My programme for the establishment
of a system of rural credits which in

wb ?reby the farmers can obtain money
with which to purchase more farm ma
chinery, to construct additional buildings,
to build fences, to buy a higher grade
of stock, to make, gather ahd market
their crops at a low rate of interest, has
appealed strongly to our great agricul

convicts out of the mines and lumber
camps, and employ them in constructing
good and permanent thoroughfares for

porters. X
“I am standing squarely for local op

be nullified by the grand juries and abro

become a farce. State-wide prohibition
has been tried and was abolished be
cause it was a consummate failure. I
confidently believe that by the first of
January, after the people have had time
to digest the platforms of all the candi
dates for governor and to hear them
speak, it will be freely conceded on every
band that I am the strongest, man in the
race, and that I will be elected. 1 shall
make as vigorous and active a canvass
as will be possible without neglecting my
present trust, animated by the confident
belief, based upon a thorough knowledge
of the real political situation, that I will
be the next governor of Alabama.”

In speaking of the Avondale zoo Mrs.
Wood said: "I was much ^appointed
yesterday when I visited tl\ zoo and
found that practically no stepXhad been
taken toward providing a plac\ for the
black bear. It was understood\that a
bear pit was being provided for\im as
it is apparent that the small cage in
which he has been confined all sufhmer
is entirely too small and undesl^ble
in other respects. With the exceplioit of
a small amount of excavation nothing
has been done to make suitable quar
ters for the bear, although it was stated
privately and through the press sev
eral months ago that a pit was being
prepared and would soon be ready for
the animal.
"Then, again, I found the other ani
mals in a deplorable condition. Their
quarters are entirely too small and they
plainly show the lack of care and at
tention. I fully realize the difficulties
that the zoo association has labored
under, but I can see no reason for the
neglect that is so apparent. I watched
the negroes feed the animals and must
say that they have no conception of
their duties. For instance, the meat
given the wolves was thrown on a floor
that was plentifully strewn with fine
lime, which made the meat uneatable.
1 hope the zoo association will Igok into
these matters."

Vanishing Cream
• (Greaseless)
A soft, smooth, dear complexion is desired hv every woman A fiiie complexion is
the greatest element in beauty. Regular features are all very well, but they will do a wom
an little'good if her complexion is sallow, dull or marred by ugly spots. It is in every
woman’s power to possess a good, smooth, velvety complexion. It all depends upon using
the proper skin food.
Norton’s Vanishing Cream is the ideal preparation to use. Unlike most all other
greaseless creams on the market today, it contains very little glycerine and therefore is
free from “stickiness.” Lt thoroughly cleanses the pores of the skin and feeds the tissues,
ft builds out the face and in time, if used regularly, will remove wrinkles. Our greaseless
cream is scientifically prepared. The skilled manipulation of the formula is essential to
produce a harmonious and well blended result from the ingredients iJSed.
Gentlemen will find it delightful to use after shaving, as it produces a cool, soothing
effect and prevents chaps, roughness and redness of the skin.
