The Douglas county commission

This is the entrance of the paving
fight into the courts. Since com
missioners gave the contract for the
"bitulithic" paving to the Allied
Contractors. Inc., two weeks ago, a
citizens' committee has been fight
ing to have it rescinded. A big
meeting Saturday was unproductive
of results and now the courts are
Jamin B. Root, head of the live
stock commission firm of J. B. Root
& Co., South Side, is the citizen,
elector and taxpayer named as
plaintiff in the petition. 'John P.
Breen, his attorney, filed it Judge
Sears issued the restraining order a
few minutes later and set next Fri
day morning to hear arguments on
the petition for a temporary injunc
tion. The bond put tip was $250
under the restraining order.
"Keep Track of Damages."
The bitulithic contract, thus
stopped, involves $550,055.
"What are you going to do now?"
John W. Towle, president of the
Allied Contractors. Inc., was asked
after the restraining order was is
sued. "Just keep track of our damages,"
he replied, smilingly.
"We have already spent $60,000
for equipment to do this bitulithic
job," he continued. "We have
closed contracts for the cement and
other materials, all since the con
tract was given us. And the people
who hold up the work by means of
injunction will have to stand re
sponsible for our losses.
"The brick trust is behind all this
thing. The committee doesn't
know that but ft is the truth."
Eight Typewritten Pages.
The petition for injunction con
sists of eight typewritten pages and,
after reciting the history of the
$3,000,000 paving bond 'issue in
Douglas county, asks that the
county board be enjoined from
carrying out the provisions of the
bitulithic contract and from paying
out any money thereon; also that the
Allied Contractors, Inc., be enjoined
from proceeding with the work, for
the following reasons:
1. That the specifications filed in
the office of the county surveyor and
to which prospective contractors
were referred in making bids, speci
fied "Warrenite bitulithic paving on
concrete foundation." The .specifica
tion of "Warrenite" was destructive
of competition, says the petition, be
cause it barred all forms of as
phaltic mixture, except this so-called
patented preparation controlled ex
clusively by Warren Brothers. This
constituted a fraud upon the electors
and taxpayers, it is alleged.
2. That in the specifications,
"maximum prices" were given for
various kinds 'of paving and that
$4.35 was named as the maximum
for Warrenite bitulithic, and $4.50
for brick. This was interpreted by
some bidders to mean that no bids
could be received higher than those
prices. It is alleged that $4.35 "al
lows a very great if not enormous
?rofit" for bitulithic paving, while
4.50 would permit little if any profit
for brick. The bitulithic contract
involved in the suit is at $4.35 a

lows and angles by the eoft curved lines of health

Thinness and weakness are often due to starved
nerves. Our Indies need more phosphate than Is
contained In modem foods. Physicians claim
there is nothing that will sutvply this deficiency so
weU as the organlo phosphate known among drug
gists as bitro-phosphate, which Is Inexpensive and
is sold by most air druggist under a guarantee of
satisfaction or money back.
By feeding the nerves directly and by supplying
the body cells with the necessary phosphorlo food
elements, Mtro-phosphate should soon produce
welcome tranaformatlon In the aivearance; the In
crease In weight frequently being astonishing.
Increase In weight also carries with it a general
Improvement In tha health. Nervousness, sleepless

bloom of perfect health.

A SHAMPOO WORTH TRYING
It is not necessary to shampoo
your hair so frequently if it is en
tirely and properly cleansed each
time by the use of a really good
shampoo. The easiest to use and
quickest' drying shampoo that we
can recommend to our readers is
one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair and may be en
joyed at very little expense, by dis
solving a teaspoonful of canthrox,
Which can be obtained from any
druggist's, in a cup of hot water.
This makes a full cup of shampoo
liquid, enough so it is easy to apply
it to all the hair instead of just to
the top of the head. This, when
rubbed into the scalp and on every
strand of hair, chemically dissolves
all impurities. It is very soothing
and cooling in its action as well as
beneficial to both scalp and hair.
After rinsing out the lather so cre
ated you will find the scalp is fresh,
clean and free from dandruff, while
the hair dries quickly and evenly,
developing a bright luster and a soft
fluffiness that makes it seem very

soon by congestion. Then headache,
