In compliance with the recent ac tion of the Illinois Master Plumb ers' association, a bill has been drawn up which will be pre sented at the next legisla ture, and is being circulated in all the cities of the state, having a sys tem of watr supply or sewerage, so liciting the signatures of physicians. The petitioners ask that such lull be passed, which proyides that no one shall thereafter engage in the plumo ing business, either as a journeyman or employer, without a license there for from the board of health having jurisdiction in the locality where he intends to work at such business, and shall be examined as to his qual ifications by a board of examiners of plumbers, consisting of the chairman of the board of health, building in spector and a master plumber. The passage of the bill will mark an epoch in the history of the plumbing business in the state of Illinois, from the fact that it will bring all compe tition wors up 10 a stanaara or excel lence, and that it will prove a boon to the honest plumber, a protection to the property holder, a safeguard to the tenant, and a preventative to uie spreaa 01 contagious diseases. Vlaastrous Fan, Saturday night about 7 o'clock sev eral of the boys who hang around the stage at Harper's theatre as supes were having a little fun with the simple-minded character known about town as "Bobby," in the property room, making him go through Borne military movements with one of the guns used in the production of Garry Owen." John Glass, day bell-boy at the Harper house, was giving the commands, and with the gun pointed directly at his face, ordered Bobby" to fire, not think ing it was loaded. Luckily, the gun contained nothing more than powder, and Glass got the full charge in his eyes and face. He was imme diately taken to the Sanitarium, where Dr. Bcrnhardi administered the necessary attendance, removing the powder from the boy's eyes, some yet remaining in his face. While the injuries are painful, nothing seri ous will result from theui, although his face is pretty badly swollen. Afraid of Pneumonia. Mrs. Catherine Black, of Le Roy, N. Y., took a severe cold. The phy sician feared pneumonia. She took one bottle of Parks' Cough Syrup and says: "It acted like magic. Stopped my cough and I am perfectly well now. 1 recommend it to everyone for throat and lung trouble, as I be lieve it saved my life." Sold by Hartz & UUemeysr. , ECCENTRIC INDIVIDUAL. The Queer Character Who Was Tried for Insanity Ist Week. Thomas C. Corolla, of Port Byron, inquiry into whose mental condition was made in the county court last week and was not adjudged insane, is a mysterious character who used to lead a life of retirement in a little hut near the Riverside cemetery gate, Moline. Old Corolla had a wife of whom little was seen, though her life was reputed to be not entire ly happy. He was a sculptor and was said to have come from noble family in Italy. He had licrcc, snaky eyes beneath bushy eyebrows, and would have made a typical Mr. Hyde. His marbles possessed sur. prising merit, but few ever ventured in to see his work. His past was shrouded in deep, inky mystery, a mystery that to even think of pene trating made one shudder. Deserted Bis Hnt. A year or so ago Corolla deserted his hut and moved to a quiet retreat near Port Byron. Since then he has been devoting himself to horticul ture, his enthusiasm in that line seeming to swallow up every, other ambition. He neglected everything, even his sculpture, and became so imbued with the work that the Port Byron people marveled thereat great, ly. He displayed a knowledge of plant life and culture that had never been dreamed of in the thrifty vil lage. Last week Corolla was hauled up before Justice Hobart on account of some mistreatment of his wife. The justice, believing him to be a mad man, had him brought to Rock Isl and, where a jury was formed to in quire into his case. W. J. Eutrikin defended the old than. Mr. Entri kin, in the management of the ceme tery, had had dealings with Corolla for years and knew him better than anyone in this vicinity. He says that the old sculptor is one of the best posted men that he ever knew. His knowledgo on everything in the whole gamut of human experience seemed almost suerhuman in its profundity and accuracy. He was somewhat eccentric in his way, but Mr. Entrikin did not believe him in sane. The result was Corolla was ac quitted, and he returned to his gar den patch with a gleam in his eyes tlint might have been construed to mean satisfaction. NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM. Possibility of Kstabllshtnr One la the Three Cities Electric Type-Writing. John E. Crawford and O. D. Bond, of Chicago, are in the city with a view to introducing in the three cities the Harrison International tele phone. Mr. Crawford, who is a son of State Senator W. F. Crawford, is a practicing lawyer in Chicago, and will return to that city after com pitt ing his business here, while Mr. Bond will remain here and losk after the company's interests. The Harri son International Telephone com pany, which promises to be a formid able competitor of the Bell, is organ ized under the laws of the state, and Stephen B. Elkins is its president, and Patrick Egan, serretary; E. M. llainson, M. D., being the chief elec trician. It now has operating sys tems at Decatur and Carlinvil'e, in Illinois; Joneka, Kan., and Lafay ette,' Ind.; while work is now pro gressing at J,a l rosse, is. The system is similar to that of the Bell, and Mr. Crawford, gives it out positively that he will establish a tri-city system, stating that rates will be much lower. Type Wrltlna- l.y Electricity. A new and wonderful invention has been made in Chicago in which Dr. K. M. Sala, of this city, is inter ested. It consists of nothing less man lype writing by electricity through the medium" of what is known as the Essick system.

The com pa. nies responded in good time, but on its arrival found that the blaze was beyond the fire limits, being in the vicinity of Twelfth avenue and First street. Some brush had been set on fire, and the wind blowing so hard, caused the flames to rise to such a height as to alarm people living near Fourth avenue, who notified the de partment. The fire caused no dam age, its food being exhausted in about half an hour. Aneustaua News Note. Rev.
