The Island City Boating association
Iieltl "its monthly meeting at the club
house last evening and a number of
important matters were discussed.
The amendment proposed at the las
meeting by George E. Bailey and
wldch was laid over until the meeting
last nignt under the rules, was again
taken up and adopted. It provides for
accepting as non-resident members
residents of the county of Rock Island,
who do not live in the city. Under the
old rules residents cf the county were
eligible to fnll membership only, which
was quite a hardship when it is remem
bered that they could not take advan
tage of the privileges of the organiza
tion in the saniS degree as the mem
bers who lived in the city. As soon
as the amendment was adopted three
new mc.nbers were taken into the
club, two of them as non-resident mem
bers. The new members voted in were.

Leonard 1orcclain UncJ Refrigerator
The most striking thing about a Leonard Cleanable Porce
lain Lined Refrigerator is the spick and span brightness of it
that makes you say, "How clean it looks."
That's how it's built to be cleaned easily.
"How cool it looks," is the next thing the housewife says.
That's because it's snowy white, and the inside of a Leon
ard Cleanable Refrigeratoi looks like an ice cavern. You can
feel the coolness of it.
A Leonard Cleanable Refrigerator is built from the ground
up, of material that makes it practically everlasting. The steel
used in its construction is covered with poreclain, fused so
as to form one piece. The hinges and locks are made of solid
cast brass, nickel plated, which never rusts or corrodes.
A Leonard Cleanable Refrigerator can be handed down
from generation to generation. It will serve one generation
with the same economy and covenience that it served the
Leonard Cleanable Refrigerators are great ice savers. They
cut the amount of your ice bill in two in about the same way
that pair of scissors would cut the bill itself. There is a sharp
clean reduction of expense in maintaing a Leonard Cleanable
Refrigerator that is just like the beautiful outlines and the
sweet cleanliness of the refrigerator itself.
Every housekeeper wants a porcelain refrigerator.

remains nothing to do but swing the
booms out from the shore and fasten
them in place.

' AFTER DEATH.
Large Parts of the Body Retain Life
For a Time.
To the unscientific citi.:e:i it is some
thing of a surprise to learn that large
ptU'td of the body are alive and useful ,
after the phenomenon popularly known J
.; death, has taken place. Few of u.i ,
iu.;pect, for example, that our kidneys
ai:d hearts after we have died our -
eclves can In most cases be rcsuscl-
(clod and that if by some surgical
miracle they could be transplanted
Into another body they would quickly
re: utne their functions. This, how
ever. Is a well demonstrated medical
fa. t. The human heart has been re
moved from tl'.e body more than thirty
hours after death and made to beat
aj-aln. tr. Carrel himself has taken
Ihe heart from one dog and Inserted
it In the neck of another, connecting'
the aorta with the carotid artery of
tl:o new heart and the vena cava with
Its jugular vein. In a few moments
the live dog had two hearts rhythmical
ly beating, one recording a pulse of
eighty-eight and the other a hundred..
Science has yet framed! no precise
definition of death. The human body
teems and quivers with life, only a
snail part of which becomes a part
of Individual consciousness. The
healthy man hardly realizes the nu
merous and complex activities of his
in'.crnnl organs. The alimentary canal
Is the abiding place of millions of nil
cro organisms, the activities of which
or.ly occasionally influence our daily
; life, Uodily tissue everywhere is con
stantly breaking down. and constantly
building up, and yet It. is pnly In the
la?t few years that even science has
begun to understand the beautiful
chemical reactions Involved In the
process. MeClure's Magazine.

Packet to Ply 011 licmu-pin Canal,
Between Peoria and Buck Island
to Begin Operations.
A Sterling paper says that the long
expected packet between the tri-cities
and that city is about to enter into thy
business after a delay of several
weeks. The steamer. City of Henry,
which has been running between Peo
ria and Sterling, will leave Sterling
for Rock Island next Sunday evening.
The packets will make the whole run
between Peoria and the tri-cities fof
a time, making a round trip weekly.
When the business grows large enough
to warrant it, another boat will be put
in commission and the City of Henry
will work only between Sterling and
Peoria, while the new boat will ply be
tween Sterling and the tri-cities.
