Getting Ready for Turners. A host
of men are at work at Scbuetzen park
and the baseball grounds under the
supervision of Professor William
Reuter. They are preparing for the
Turner festival which begins tomor
row and continues through Sunday.
Schuetzen park is being converted in
to a camp. The shooting range has
been set aside for the visiting athletic
teams, from four states who will live
there in camp as soldiers regulated by
trumpet calls. Gradually the tents are
unfolding and the canvas city is taking
shape. Beside the smaller living tents,
there, are several larger-- tents . being
erected. One of these is a hospital
tent, another a headquarters tent, an
other, a dining tent, and so on. This
work is in charge of the quartering
committee. But no effort is being
- spared to make the arrangements as
nearly perfect as possible.
Two Overcome by Heat The exces
sive heat that prevailed here for three
days claimed two victims in Davenport
late Monday afternoon. Fortunately
both recovered. The first was John
Johnson, a common laborer, who was
engaged in digging a ditch on Western
avenue between Third and Fourth
street He was prostrated while at
work. The city ambulance was called
and the man was conveyed to the
Koester hotel, where he rooms. The
second victim was Jim Hall, a farm la
borer. Hall was in Davenport Monday.

and thus became an easy victim. He
was picked up by the city ambulance
at 1742 Viola street and was turned
over to the farmer by whom he is em
ployed, who took him back to the

the result of a long siege with blood
poisoning. For two months Mr. Bee-J
ker was confined at St. Luke's hospitay
and at one time his condition became
so serious that the doctors had made
arrangements to amputate the diseased
limb. About that time, however, Mr.
Becker showed signs of improvement
and the operation was abandoned. He
continued to improve and it was be

without it being necessary to amputate
the foot. One of the toes was taken
off and Mr. Becker had so far recov

, Four Shots Through Door There
was a lively shooting affair at the St.
Julieu hotel at Front and Main streets
at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. Four
shots were fired but fortunately no one
was hurt. The shooting affair was the
result of Mrs. Bertha Smith being out
on a still hunt for her husband, Bert
Smith. When her efforts to locate
her spouse were blocked, which she re
garded as no more than a woman's
rights, she resorted to gun play and
brought everybody around her to time.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith have had some do
mestic difficulty of late and several
days ago Mrs. Smith, through her at
torney, W. M. Chamberlin, started di
vorce proceedings against her hus
band. Their trouble was further in
tensified Monday by Mr. Smith selling
to John Mok for $300, the horse, buggy
and harness which Mrs. Smith claims
was her own property. Suspecting that
her husband was stopping at the St.
Julien, Mrs. Smith went to that place
at 1 o'clock in the morning. She en
tered the office but was refused per
mission to go through the house in
search of her husband. Fearing trou
ble, the door which leads from the of
fice to the stairway was locked by the
management. Mrs. Smith demanded
that the door be opened and when the
request was refused, drew a revolver
from her pocket and fired four shots

'searched , the premises but failed to
find her husband. She was soon taken
into custody by Officers Schramm and
Bishop and later released on her own
recognizance. The papers in the con
templated divorce action had not yet
been served upon Mr. Smith and yes
terday Mrs. Smith requested that they
be not served at the present time. In
as much as both Mr. and Mrs. Smith
profess to still love each other, it is
understood there Is a prospect of re
conciliation between them.
