—Dr. Everett H. Butterfield, Ottawa, has been reelected physician of La Salle County.—Dr. Homer A. Millard, Minonk, sailed for Germany, September 15.
Faith Cure Case Remanded.
—The Appellate Court, fourth district, has rendered a decision in the case of the Board of Health of Illinois versus S. E. Peden of Centralia, who was charged with practicing medicine without a license, and who was tried twice in Marion County. He was first tried and acquitted before a justice of the peace, then before the County Court, with the same result. The State Board of Health then took the case to the Appellate Court, which reversed and remanded it on account of defective instructions, and it will go back to the County Court for another trial. Peden's defense is that his practice is simply laying on of hands, which he contends is in no sense the practice of medicine.
