HAVE TWO HOUSES
Island City Boating Association
and Naval Reserves Build
MANAGERS HOLD A MEETING
Both to Be at the Foot of Twelfth
Street, If the City Will Grant. ;
Necessary Permission. ' ,
The managers of the Island City
Boating association and the officers of
the Naval Reserves met with Commo
dore T, E. ' Carsons Saturday night
.arid the plans of Hie two organizations
"Were discussed in detail. It was de
cided that separate houses should be
8trnrtiir iivft fee nMfh
ifanda, and the naval militia house to
De 40X10 reet in dimensions, with
plenty " of room inside for the two
boats the reserves are to be allotted.
It is the intention of the committees
to build the, houses at the very foot
of Twelfth street if the city will grant
the necessary permission. It has been
found that that is the most desirable
place for the structures as the railroad
tracks interfere ,at other places.
The guard hired by the boat club
will report for work this week and
will live in a tent until the house is
ready for occupancy.
Boom Are Secured.
The committee which had the mat
ter of log booms in charge, reported
having clvsed a deal with the Rock
Island Sash & Door works by which
the club secures a boom about 700
feet long. 'More booms will ba se
cured and they will be arranged three
deep and a walk will be placed on
them for a landing.
The last meeting of the boat club
before the closing of the .charter will
be held at the city hall Thursday
evening. ' The entire membership is
urged to attend as important business
will come up.'

Undigested food grows hard, and irritates the

SWAN TAKES ITS FLIGHT
Male Fowl at Long View Park Fright
. ened Away from Mate.
The white male swan which was se
cured -this spring for Long 'View park
made his escape during the night, and
was found this morning on the pow
er pool at Moline. Superintendent C.
F. Gaetjer. learned, of. the fowl's where
abouts and gave pursuit, even. to the
point of getting a skiff and following
the fugitive out into the stream. It
was no use, however, for the swan
was too wild to be recaptured in this
manner. The wings of the female
swan have been kept clipped, but the
male was not so operated upon, as

Kodol consists of all the digestive elements, In
highly concentrated form. ' It digests air sorts of
food, and completely. It does all that the health
iest stomach can do. .
Pepsin is part of It, but pepsin digests albumen
only. Starch requires something else, fat some
thing else. Kodol combines all that is needed.
Digesters which depend solely on pepsin do only
what pepsin does. They , are but half-way treat
ments. Other elements are just a3 essential, and
they must be Jn liquid form.: . , ...
That Is why Kodol is liquid. And, because It Is
liquid, like the digestive juices, its action is in
stant. It even begins in the mouth--hy increas
ing the flow of saliva.
The action of Kodol can be easily proved, either
In the stomach or out of it.
Eat what you need of the food that you want,
and take Kodol. Note the absence of pain and
gas. You know to a certainty that the food 13

Or you can see it digest food in, a test tube,

tests, Kodol digests every whit, of the food, jast
as it does in the stomach. All other . digesters
digest but part of the food, just as they do in the
stomach. ' . "
Don't employ half-way measures,' for 'the' stom
ach needs complete relief. Any undigested rood
will, through irritation, interfere with the cure.
Nothing but Kodol does all that must be done. No
other digester can digest all foods. j- -.

"How do I arrive at such con
clusion? That's, easy to explain. I
asked the men at the works to bring
down their kitchen sharp knives 'on
a common day. Enough were brought
to show that. the average knife runs
ten to the pound and has been In
service ve years. ;
"Not every knife, however, makes
a good kitchen. Bharp knife. Out of
a dozen knives taken from the same
box, perhaps but one may be found
which will take and keep' a good cut
ting edge. When that knlfa Is dis
covered it becomes the most valuable
knife in the house whether it cost
nine cents or nine dollars. Even the
old Iron handle knife sharpened oa
the brick wall outside the kitchen
door; may cut as well, and, for the
length of time it lasts, prove as val
uable a household asset as the stag

Germany more than forty years ago
and still in use.. ; . ; '
"Not one-third of the kitchen
sharp knives of America are sharpen

to wife or cook. For, when a man

or cook wants is' not a razor-edge,
but something haif way between that
and a miniature saw. A crock, a
stovepipe, a brick, or a steel. Is a
kitchen favorite for sharpening pur
poses. i . - .
"The average price of the kitchen
sharp knife when 'new -Is thirty
cents. That may seem rather high
estimate, but is not. ' For, when one
plebeian blade arises above its fellows
to make' good, It is quite apt to find
itself in a goodly assemblage of old,
true and tried aristocrats.
"The Chinese have' a proverb:"
01d "knife must be good knife. If
not good knife, must be throw away
long time ago.- And so It would
seem. ' ' . -
"Nine million dollars Is what. the
kitchen sharp "knives of the United
States originally cost. - In their, worn
state no one may estimate their, value.
You ask the average . possessor of
such a knife to place a price upon it,
' ' "No, sir! You can buy all the rest,
but not that!' . ( ;

'.'My old, granddaddy had a sharp
kitchen knife he got from the In
dians. It was made of flint, one edge
smooth and one edge nicked, with the
handle wrapped in deer sinew. Grand
ma could sharpen the smooth edge by
nibbing; but when ft came to the
nicked edge, it took the old gentle
man to sharpen it; which he did by
chipping a fresh edge after the man
ner of its first manufacture. , And
