TOOK HIS LIFE
On the Ero of His Marriage to a Former
lleshlent of Thia City Suicide of
Chicago, April 9. Capt. Louis Ost-
heim, First U. S. Artillery, was found
dead in his room at tho Auditorium
Annex late last night. There was a bul
let wound in his right temple. The body
lay on the side. Life apparently had
been extinct since Saturday night. Ac
cording to announcements in the Chi
cago papers Capt. Louis Ostheim and
Mrs. Eva Bruce Wood were to be married
in this city to-day at the residence
of the bride's uncle, Walter B. Phister.
After the ceremony Captain Ostheim
and his bride were to leave immedi
ately for the East, visiting Philadel
phia, the Captain's former home, and
other cities. After May 1 they were to
be at home at Fort Screven, Savannah,
Ga., where the Captain's batttery is
stationed. Among the articles found in
the Captain's room were two wedding
rings. One was heavy gold and was in
scribed as follows: "Eva to Louis,
April 9, 1900." The other was smaller
and more delicately made. Inside was
engraved : "Louis to Eva, April 9, 1900."
Captain Ostheim was staioned at Fort
Sheridan previous to the Spanish-Amer-ican
war, and it was during his stay here
that he met Mrs. Wood. He had been
transferred from service with the Sixth
Artillery in Manila to the First in the
United States and had come to Chicago
to be married when he committed sui
cide. The cause of tho suicide is a mystery.
Nothing was left in the room to throw
any light on the matter. The only writ
ing found was the following address on
an empty envelope: "Miss Clara Ostheim,
1312 North Seventh street, Philadelphia,
Pa." In the pockets of the Captain's

Ostheim registered at the Auditorium
Annex on Monday, April 2, one week
ago to-day. He Eeemed to be in excellent
health, showing the tan of his Philip
pine campaigning in his face and was
reserved in his mannpr. The Captain
was last seen alive on Saturday night at
9 o'clock, when he asked the clerk for
the key of his room. When a chamber
maid went to his room Sunday morning
she found tho door locked. This was
not unusual, and the girl went about her
work in other rooms. Returning to Capt.
Ostheim's appartments she found the
door etill locked. Then she reported the
circumstances to the office. The clerks
concluded that the Captain was tired and
desired a long sleep and made no effort
to open the door till last night.
Captain Ostheim was lying on the bed
dead. As stated there was a bullet hole
in his right temple and under his body
was a new revolver. Capt Ostheim's mil
itary history throughout is a record of
transfers to more importanf posts and of
promotions in rank. Mr. Phister was no
tified of the death. "I am sure tho Cap
tain's death was caused by an accident,"
said Mr. Phister, "Ho was perfectly hap
py and had made minute arrangements
for his wedding to-morrow. lie had even
bought tickets for his bride and himself
to Cincinnati, which wbb to be the first
stage in their wedding journey. He had
given one ticket to Mrs. Wood so that
she might get her trunk checked. The
only trouble the Captain had to woiry
him was insomnia."
A late dispatch from Chicago states
that the Coroner's jury returned a ver
dict of accidental shooting. Witnesses
testified that the Captain had been ill
for the past six weeks, and had not been
able to go to sleep before morning. He
was subject to nightmare, and is sup
posed to have shot himself during one of
his wild dreams.
