Cowdrey was the real name of the
deceased aviator. He is a brother ot
Mrs. Martha F. Meckel, 507 Ainswo-t'i
street, Davenport, who has not heard
from him in the last 17 years. He
was born there March 6, 1867, and
chese the name of Cody when he left
Davenport for EuTope with Buffalo
Bill's show over 20 years ago.
Under this name he toured Europe
with his wife, whom he married on
the cofctinent, giving a wild west
show, appearing in vaudeville and in
various amusement resorts. He -Imi
tated Col. Cody's personal appear

frontier habits and surrounding him
self with a wild west atmosphere.
He is believed to have acquired con
siderable wealth, as a cablegram from
London to relatives states that he won
$20,000 recently in an aeroplane con
test. In addition to this Cowdrey has
a considerable sum of money in one
of the Davenport banks, the money
being get aside for him when his moth

and none of the family could give the
address of the absent son.
His father, Samuel Franklin Cowd

leaving considerable property at his
death, several years ago. Mrs. Meck

authorities at Aldershot and discover
whether her brother leaves a family
or heirs to the money in Davesport.
The deceased aviator also leaves two

Never before in ei'her Europe or
America has such a complete display
of vessels of the various periods in
shipbuilding been arranged.
A squadron of war vessels repre
senting every important stage in
rautical progress will gather at Chi
cago for Perry's victory centennial
work and the second annual water
carnival and naval pageant. The lend

will be the staunch old man-of-war

With the exception of three ships

The Dubuque is the most modern

In estimating the offensive powers
of the Dubuque it was stated a short
time 30 that this gunboat could have
reduced Commodore Perry's war
schooner and those of the enemy to

that the Dubuque not only could have
