WfcSMJAT. AUOUBT «. 1 07. —- SNOWED UNDER The complete vote of Collin coun- ty on the proposed constitutional amendments cannot be obUlned at preeent for the reason that quite a number of boxes have not reported. The returns received indicate that the amendment relating to the estab- lishment of a home for the widows of confederate soldiers and snilors has carried, and conclusively show that all the other proposed amend- ments have been overwhelmingly defeated. But little interest, was manifested in the special election and a very light rote was polled throughout the county. Following is the vote In the four McKlnney boxes: Northwest McKlnney— For Confederate Widows Homo 66: against 50. For Department of Agriculture 25; against 74.

But they don t like to be Without their "Star" chew any longer than necessary. No chew is so rich, waxy and sweet—no plug so generously satisfying—no tobacco go economical and wholesome as STAR PLUG CHEWING TOBACCO None but the choicest leaf ever gets under a "Star" tag—never has and never will. The quality that has made "Star" famous is still, as always, the best obtainable. Only the richest, ripest, sweetest leaf is good enough for "Star"—that's why it is so sweet, so whole- some, so juicy, so clastic and lasting, so econom- ical.
