in the City.
The quarterly meeting of the Iowa
and Illinois Central District Medical
association was held last evening- at
the Harper house and was attended
by a large number cf the members of
the profession from the various towns
embraced in the district. Supper was
served nt 0::;o, after which the busi
ness meeting took place, and the
feature of which was a paper in
memoriam of the late Dr. C. C. Carter,
of this city, read by Dr. (;. L. Kyster.
It was as follows:
"Perhaps the saddest moments
which come to' us in this brief span
of mortal life are those when death
comes to break the ties which life and
association have woven into bonds of
personal love and friendship. The re-
li:i4iii of this thought comes most'
pro ..nindly to Ihose of us who have

stock of Puritans who early settle. 1
on the New Fngla ud coast.
"His father was one of the argo

in the golden sniuls of California, and
it was during the residence of his par-

not a business, and whose dig
nified precepts and example no doubt
had large influence i:i forming' that
high sense of professional honor and
courtesy which so markedly charac
terized Dr. Carter in his relations to
his patients and confreres.
"He graduated in IsTG from Rclle
vue Hospital Medical college. .New
York. Some ten years afterwards,
when his years of practical experi
ence made 'him peculiarly capable of
absorbing and assimilating the in
struction given, he took an extended
post-graduate course in New York.

four of whom died in early infancy,
two surviving their father's death.

"He began the practice of medicine
in Hock l-l.ind. 111., in the spring of

just beginning his professional career
in the same city, first made Ids ac
quaintance. That acquaintance first
made in the flush of youthful hope
and endeavor, ripened through the
vcars of personal and professional as
sociation into a warm friendship that
no friction ever disturbed.

"The writer believes that he can pay
no higher tribute to Charles Carter's
professional character than to say
that in the 2 years of his profe-sioiial
life he never knew 1dm other than a
high-minded, upright and ci ttt ion

The Kock Island Club adopted the
following at its last membership
"Dr. Charles ('. Carter was a direc
tor ami a charter member of the Kock
Island Club. From the day of its or
ganization he was a loyal supporter of
the association,, a part of its manage
ment, and the warm personal friend
of its members.
"Few men had greater talent than
Dr. Carter; few deserve more lasting
honor. .Net many men have acquired
a higher degree of skill in chosen
work, nor have attained a more com
manding position in the professional
world; but above this, beyond his
worldly lienors' and professional re
nown, back of the superb genius that
won fr.r him the plaudits of men, was
a kindly nature, a personality that
had power to touch the human heart,
for Dr. Carter attracted and retained
very many friends, endearing himself
to them by his moral worth alone.
"Ileing profoundly impressed with
these facts, it is therefore
"Kesolved, That they be written
upon the formal records of the Kock
Island Club, mid that the sympathy of
the entire membership be extended to
his family. We do this with the abid
ing faith that his was an ideal life, for
all the days of his vigorous manhood,
all the talents of his brilliant mind,
all the love of a heart both tender and
true, were devoted to tiieir service
ami that of others, and no man, under
(bid. has ever buiided to himself a
more enduring monument than this."

One hundred and fifty couples in at

Industrial hall last evening by the
Kock Island Independent baseball
team were panic-stricken bv a lire

building- i.nd the big clouds of smoke
from which rolled into the upper win-

Some of the cooler heads prevented a
rush for the stairway, assuring the
excited dancers that the fire was not
in the building and there was not the
slightest danger. A lighted cigar
