The third battalion spent all day on

high, so there is no wind. This usually
makes it several degrees warmer than

made the best score of anybody thus

which battalion has the best average.

The remains of Louis Schauder, the
Davenport young man whose death by
drowning in Rock river was mentioned
in The Argus last evening, were found
late yesterday afternoon. Coroner L.
V. Eckhart was notified, and an in
quest was conducted last night on
Turkey island, just west of the canning
factory in Rock river. It was shown
at the inquest that Schauder drowned
during a seizure of cramp. A foolish
prank, intended as a joke on the young
man's friends on the shore was the be
ginning of the incident that ended fa
tally for Schauder.
A Pretended Qunrrel.
Young Schauder had been visiting
with some friends at a camp on Tur
key island Wednesday night and yes
terday. About 1 o'clock he, with A. H.
Benson, went in a boat to the main
shore and visited Luchmann's saloon
at bears. They started back about
1:30, and in the boat Schauder propos
ed that they make their friends believe
they were quarreling. "When we are
about 50 feet from the island we'll pre
tend we are having a quarrel. I'll take
an oar. as though to strike you with it.
and throw it in the water. Then I'll
jump in and you follow, and we will
swim ashore." This was the plan pro
posed by Schauder, but Benson object
ed, as he had no change of clothing.
Knlal l'nntomiiue Alone.
So Schauder decided to go through
the pantomime alone. As the boat
neared the shore, he picked up the oar,
and with a motion as though to strike
his companion, threw it in the water,
and jumped in himself. Benson tried
to reach the floating oar, but failed,
and on turning around, was alarmed to
see Schauder struggling in the water
some distance away. He tried to reach
the one remaining oar to the drowning
man, but the wind carried the boat
away, and Benson was helpless. Schau
der went down before the eyes of his
friends, those on shore believing until
too late to save him, that he was fool
Second Seizure In Day.
Schauder was in bathing in the
morning, ana naa at mat time ieen
seized with a severe cramp in the right
side. He managed in the morning to
get to the shore. The young man was
23. years old. and resided in Davenport.
He was a bartender at the Schauder
hotel in that city. He was a member
of the Davenport Elks. The remains
were taken to Davenport for burial. -
Had Talked of Suicide,
The Davenport young lady who
Schauder was engaged to marry today
told of his having talked of contem
plating suicide. She said that recently
he had told her that everything was
going against him, and that he wanted
to die. Whether he carried out his
threats of suicide, or was as supposed,
seized with a cramp, is now a doubtful
question, though the circumstances in
dicate strongly that his death was ac
cidental. The young man's real name
was Louis Mahoney. He lived with
his grandfather, Louis Schauder, Sr.,
and recently assumed the name of
Louis Schauder, Jr.

The accident In which the youth's neck
was broken occurred near Harlan. III.,
on July 11. He was hurried to St.
Louis on a special train and taken to
Dr. Pinckney French, chief of the
surgeons who have been in charge of
the patient, stated yesterday that it
was one of the most remarkable cases
on record, both on account of the na
ture of the break, which is the fourth
and fifth cervical vertebrae, and the
fact that the phrenic nerve, which con
trols the respiratory movements of the

uninjured. The fact that the break di
not affect this nerve, even though
paralyzed every other portion of the
body below the neck, saved the youth
from instant death.
"Immediately after the accident his
uncle had him sent to St. Louis. Doc
tors Pinckney French, A. R. Kiefer and
Paul Y. Tupper at once took charge of
the case as consulting surgeons. Ev
ery precaution has been taken to keep
the patient in the best physical condi

was secured, and the body is sponged
with alcohol daily."

"Mrs. Martin, who has remained al
most constantly at the bedside of her
son, is greatly encouraged by his cheer
fulness. His neck and head are held
rigid and are packed in ice. A plaster
cast was not used in this case on ac
count of the fever. He talks to the
nurses and his mother and gave the
physicians a detailed account of the

are much encouraged over the boys
condition. They state that the injury
s one of the worst of its kind to treat
on account or its proximity to tne
brain. The fact that he can now move
his feet slightly shows that the spinal
cord is not entirely destroyed, and
leads the physicians to believe that the
young man will recover the use of a
portion of his body at least."
