Lentz started out to shatter the record for the 100 yard dash and when he refused to halt. Officer Sulli van pulled his revolver and fired. The hot only served to increase the foot racer's speed, and had it not been for a loose paving brick, he would have been going yet. As it was, Lentz tripped and fell on his face, making capture an easy matter. This morn ing in police court the man was charged with disorderly conduct.

The city commission will hold its weekly meeting this afternoon. A number of important things are slated to come up for consideration. Rela tive to commissioner's fees for mak ing up assessment rolls on improve ments which Commissioner M. T. Rud gren brought up at the last council meeting, that official states today he has prepared a list of improvements and the fees paid and that the com pensation has not been equitable. In support of his statement, he pro duced the list showing that on an im provement costing $6,500, the fee of $100 had been allowed, while on a job costing but $3,000 a similar fee had been paid. He believes that the sum ought not to be in addition to that provided in the engineer's estimate and alleges that when the improve ments come up for confirmation in county court, the figures are boosted. He has investigated the system used in Moline and quotes Mayor Carlson as saying that in that city the com missioner is paid on a percentage basis and that he is allowed a certain percentage of the total cost of the im provement, instead of receiving any figure that the mayor may suggest.

After enjoying a vacation which fasted a fortnight over 1,000 employes of the Rock Island arsenal returned to work this morning on the island. During the absence of the regiment of employes an inventory has been taken and the two weeks have been spent in supplying the shops w-ith necessary supplies to carry on the work for the coming year.

After a man has been employed on the island for a year he is entitled to a two weeks' vacation on full ray and the extended vacations, many of which -will last until next month, are a reward for a long period of service at the arsenal.

The scenery and costumes are on a sidetrack, but the tickets for the actors have not been purchased as yet. Before leaving Chicago Anderson paid the hotel bills of most of the company and made ar rangements with a hotel in the loop to take care of ten chorus girls for a few days longer at least.

TEARNEY'S RESTAURANT MUST CLOSE AT 1 O'CLOCK Chicago, III., July 14. When a res taurant serves liquor during the day and until 1 o'clock the next morning, the saloon closing hour, it is in the same classification as a dramshop. Judge Gibbons held yesterday in de ciding against Albert R, Tearney, for mer alderman, in his injunction suit against the city. Tearney sought to restrain the city from prosecuting 11 suits for alleged violations of the closing law. He maintained that his saloon was closed, but; bis cafe, at East Thirty-fifth street and Grand boulevard, remained open after 1 a. m. The city contended the restaurant portion could be classed as a saloon and must close at the same time as the bar. Judge Gibbons ordered the city's de murrer sustained and t,he bill dismiss ed for a want of equity. Attorney James Sutton, representing Tearney, took an appeal. WIEE SPARKS.

Beauty of Inequality. The beauty as well as the happiness of the universe requires inequality. Equal lines, smooth surface and eter nal plains have no beauty. We must have hill and dale, mountain and val ley, sea and laud, suns of all majrul t tides, worlds of all sizes, minds of all dimensions and persons nud faces of divers casts and colors to constitute a beautiful and happy world. We must have sexes, conditions and circum stancesempires, nations and families diversities in person, mind, manners, in order to the communication aud re ception of happiness; hence our nu merous and various wants are not only incentives to action, but sources of pleasure, both simple and complex physical, intellectual and moral.
