by Deputy Attorney General Rowe

The proposition conies up to the

Boone county over the death of a
candidate for re-election a few days
before election, too late for the com
mittee to nominate.
.Sheriff Otto Anderson .entered
the military service of the United
States and the board of county com
missioners appointed Capt. Frank
F. Willott of Albion acting sheriff.
Three days before election, after
having been selected by the repub
licans at the primary as a candidate
for re-election, Sheriff Anderson
iied in the service. The county board
appointed Captain Willott to serve
for : the remainder of Anderson's
Dead Man Elected.
-Deputy Attorney General Rowe
holds that as Willott was appointed
to fill the Anderson term and that
at Ahtierson would hold until a suc
cessor was elected and as no suc
cessor was elected, the term of Wil
lott, would run until a successor is
elected. Anderson, though dead, re
ceived a majority over his demo
cratic opponent. Mr. Rowe, how-
i ft ever, suggests that Willott be re
in qualified within the specified time,
.iwnich is within 1U days or Decem-
r ber 31. 1918.

TEE superiority of Atwood
Grapefruit is not an acci
dent. From the first planting
the Atwood Grapefruit Co.
has sacrificed everything for
QUALITY. An initial expense
of hundreds of thousands of
dollars was incurred, while
everything that scientific cul
ture and experience could
suggest was done to produce
QUALITY. Even then some
trees at maturity bore simply
good grapefruit, but not good
enough for the Atwood Brand.
These trees were cut down
and replaced by superior va
rieties. So through selection and
cultivation;" has ': evofved the
delicious ATWOOD GRAPE
FRUIT "the Aristocrat of
the Breakfast Table."
