Health Commissioner (i. (!. Craig,

Rock Island in the nature of a mu
nicipal laboratory, an appropriation
for the purchase of which, it is under
stood, is soon to be asked from the
The proposed feature of the labora
tory is an apparatus for testiDg milk

product for public consumption, and
the latter whenever a case of typhoid
fever is discovered, as the doctor is
firmly of the belief that the maiorstv
of the cases of this disease are tracea

Craig states that a laboratory that
would answer the neeus of the city of
Rock Island could be purchased for
less than $200.

PLOW WORKS EXPLOSION.
Steatn Condenser Itlows I p. Duinc 500
The Crawford condenser recently in
stalled in the engine room at the Rock
Island Plow company exploded yes
terday, damaging the apparatus to
the amount of about f "00 ami neces
sitating its shipment back to New
York for repairs.
The condenser is located in the
southwest corner of the engine room,
where all steam of the propelling en
gines is exhausted in proportionate
amounts of cold water, which is re
ceived froin a pump underneath the
condenser. The vacuum in the con
denser became overtaxed with steam
and stopped the cold water pump.
This was unavoidable, as an electric
light engine stationed near tiie con
denser admitted ignitible refuse,
causing a dense teani, and Engineer
Oliver liraham was unable to see the
vacuum of the condenser. Pieces
of castiron llew about 1 he
room, brcakinga number of windows.
The condenser is about S feet long
and the best make on the market. Al
though it was a bad accident, it will
not interfere with operations at the

cessful comedy drama in live acts en
titled "The Eagle's Nest." Dealing
fs it does with western life in the
Ricky Mountains, it gives ample scope
for clever comedy and thrilling dra
matic situations. Many high class
specialties will be introduced during
the action of the play. Matinees will
lie given Wednesday, Thursday and
Saturday. Popular prices will prevail.
Comes from Dr. D. 11. Cargile, of
Washita. I. T. He writes: "Four
bottles of Electric Bitters has cured
Mrs. Rrewer of scrofula, which had
caused her great suffering for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her
head and face, the best doctors could
give no help, but her cure is complete
and her health is excellent." This
shows what thousands have proved
that Electric Hitters is the best puri
fier known. It's the supreme remedy
for eczema, tetter, salt rheum, ulcers,
boils and running sores. It stimu
lates liver, kidneys and bowels, expels
poisons, helps digestion, builds up
