William Sheldon Perishes At
tempting to Rescue Mrs.
YOUNG MAN IS STRANGLED
Girl Clasps Arms About His Neck and
Both Sink in View of Party of
Following a lovers' quarrel, Mrs. Bes
sie Jarrette, 19, jumped from a row
boat near Suburban Island at 7:30 last
night, and when William Sheldon, 21,
ber escort, went to her rescue, she
grappled him about the neck, and both
perished. The bodies were recovered
within five minutes after the tragedy.
Both victims were residents of Daven
port, the girl living with her mother,
Mrs. Harriet Murphy, at 208 Fillmore
street, and Sheldon, who was a black
smith, at 1806 New Second street
That the young woman contemplated
suicide was made evident by the con
tents of a note which she left at her
home before her departure for the is
land. In the note, which was address
ed to her mother, she told ol her love
for Sheldon, bewailing the possibility
of losing him, and intimated that it
would not be long until both were in
JUMPS FROM BOAT.
Sheldon and Mrs. Jarrette were out
walking together early in the after
noon when they met three young men
friends who were on their way to Sub
urban island to fish. Sheldon and his
companion were invited to join the
party. Sheldon said he did not care to
go, but finally was prevailed upon by
Mrs. Jarrette to do so. After arriving
at the island Sheldon and the girl
quarreled. She left the party and went
to a grass plot about a hundred feet
away and sat by herself. When half
an hour had passed she called to El
mer Dorris and asked him if he would
row her to the dam so that she could
board a car for home. Dorris accom
modated her. Mrs. Jarrette took a
seat at one end of the boat. Dorris so
seated himself in the boat that his
back was turned to the girl. Sheldon
and Julius Gadient were on shore when
the boat moved away. When it reach
ed 50 feet from the landing Mrs. Jar
rette suddenly was seen to rise in her
seat and plunge into the water, which
is 16 feet deep at the point in question.
GOES TO J1KK KESCIE.
Sheldon, without removing his coat,
set out to rescue the girl. Gadient did
likewise, but he waited to remove his
coat and shoes. Within a minute the
three young men were at the side of
Mrs. Jarrette. Gadient was holding hef
head above water when Sheldon reach
ed her side. As Sheldon neared her
she threw out both her arms to him.
He tried to quiet htr, instructing her
to put her hands on his shoulders Id
order to give him a free stroke in
reaching shore. As Sheldon turned,
the girl, with the ferociousness of a
lioness gloating with victory over land
ing its prey, clasped her arms about
her lover's throat, and it was only a
moment until both disappeared. Gad
ient dived and succeeded in separating
them under water, but the girl already
was beyond hope. Sheldon was brought
to the surface, but be, too, was too far
gone, and Gadient and Dorris saw to
saving their own lives.
IMIAPPV MAHKIED LIFE.
Mrs. Jarrette was married when 6he
was 14. Ernest Jarrette, her husband,
left her five months ago and went to

left her Sheldon began paying atten

that Mrs. Jarrette was in love with
Sheldon, but that he did not recipro

Major C. W. Hawes had the well In
spected last week to ascertain wheth
er or not a cave in had occurred at
some point below the surface. A win
dow weight was tied to the end of a
long rope and it was dropped to a
distance of 600 feet without encount
ering any obstructions. At that poin
the rope gave out and the quest was
given up. The well is 1,185 feet deep
and it is barely possible that there is
something wrong in the shaft at a
lower level than 600 feet but in view
of the condition of other artesian
wells the authorities are inclined to
believe that the diminution is from
