193 South Clark St.,
Georgt? I. Stewart, a former weil
known Davenport man, died July 11
at Kansas City.
-The death of John W. Fecker, for
many, years a resident of this city,
occurred at 9 o'clock Saturday morn
ing" at his home, 1S0S Franklin street.
He had been ill for a year with an
ailment of the heart. Mr. Fecker
was born in Friesland, Hanover, tier
many, Sept. 1 ,1833. He came t this
country in -May, 18GG, settling at St.
Louis., but three months after he
moved to. this city", and it was his
home till he died. Mr. Fecker was
engaged in the sand business here for
a time' after his arrival; later he kept
a boarding, house on Front street be
tween Western avenue and Gaines
street. A year and a half ago he built
a comfortable home on the bluff and
retired. Mr. Fecker was married in
this city May 2o, 1867, to Miss Frauke
Schoom. She remains to mourn him,
with one son. Henry W. Fecker, and
two daughters, Mrs. George Spiess
and Mrs. Caesar Yulff.
An unusual death was that which
claimed Arthur K. Nord, son of Mr.
and Mrs. A. M. Nord, of i:H) Fast
Locust street. Friday afternoon. The
young liwtn was seated in a hammock
at his home, when he suddenly gave
signs of a distress and in a very brief
time expired. Pulmonary trouble and
a hemorrhage that shortly preceded
the fatal seizure, are supposed to

stomach. In cases of spasms of the
stomach or of the bowels, a strong
preparation of ginger is an extreme
ly useful remedy, while for flatulence,
loss -f appetite and dyspepsia, the
regular use of a more dduted bever
age is indicated. Possessing, when
properly made, a peculiarly tine flavor
and aroma, as well as distinct, albeit,
medicinal virtues, ginger ale is con
sumed in proportions appearing sim
ply incredible to those not familiar
with the facts. P.ut this distinction
was not gained until years of pcrse
vering efforts and of the closest ob
servation had brought the beverage
have conduced to his sudden end.
Arthur Nord was 21 years of
age. For several years he had
been connected with the newspaper

moreover, genial and cheerful in dis
position. There is great sorrow on

One of the most peculiar accidents
which has happened in Davenport for
some time and the only instance ever
recorded in the citv- where a person
was struck by lightning and escaped
without losing his- life, took place
during the storm Friday afternoon
at about 4 o'clock. Mrs. George An
dersen was standing in the kitchen of
her home at 2115 Urown street watch

by a bolt of lightning and knocked
senseless to the floor. She was pick
