Jochim ScDDeckloih, at aged citizen of
Davenport, has been missing since Mon
day forenoon, and fears are entertained
that be has been drowned. Speaking of
his disappearance, the Loader says:
When in the afternoon he did not ap
pear, a searching party was formed to
look for him. lie bad left the house at
10 o'clock, being seen to board a car on
second and Fcott street. He was next
seen by Officer Bass in the vicinity of
the bridge. Officer Rasa no' iced some
thing peculiar in the old man's conversa
tion, but was not alarmed by it. A'ter
that nothing authentic has been heard in
regaid to him. A little girl informed
the family this morning that she and her
mother had passed him on the bridge
strolling along laughing and talking to
himself. The name of the little girl has
net been learned.
At 4 o'clock the guard on the bridge
noticed that the little gate on the draw
leading to the pier be'ow was open and
suspected that someone had gone below.
Shortly after he was met bv Charles
Bchneckloih and questioned in regard to
a pedestrian over the bridao. The guard
at the south end of the bridge Wis satis
fied that no one answering to his descrip
tion had passed him during the day. Mr.
Ncbneckloth and bis ptrty searched the
island in vain for traces of him, but re
turned to theci'y indespar Later on
hearing that he had gone to Rock Island
they again crossed the Lridge and
one of them in rubbing his
hand along the railirg near He
draw gate discovered the cine that the
father had used It was nan eing on the
railing. This seemed to indicate that he
either jumptd oS the bridge or had gone
below on the pier and fallen. Either
supposition was terrible to Mr. Schneck
loth and bis party. They returned to
the city and issued several hand-bills of
fering $200 reward for a trace of him.
The river wt s dragged yesterday, but
Mr. Schneckloth was formerly a
wealthy Scott county farmer, livinz in
Lincoln township. Fifteen years sgo he
moved to Davenport to live with his son.
Charles Schneckloth. Mrs. Scbnecklo h,
the aged wife, is prostrated by the news
of her husband's departure. He is 83
years eld, about six feet in height and
weighs between 220 aad 240 pounds.

Tomorrow evening occurs the Ovide
Musin concert at Harper's theatre, one of
the best in the aeries of entertainments of
the Reck Island Lscture and Concert ass
"Paul Eauvar" comes to the Burtis at
Davenport Jan. 1 and 2. ' Paul Kaa-
var" adds materially to Steele MacKaye's
reputation as a dramatist. It is a pow
erful drama, embodying a thoroughly in
teresling story, and disclosing wonderful
cleerness in construction, abundant en
tertaiaing incidents, extraordinary potent
situations, essy, graceful dialogue, and
Theatre-goers who delight in comedy,
fine singing and excellent dancing have a
treat in store on Monday evening next,
when "A Turkish Bath" will be seen at
Harper's theatre. The star of the com
pany, if any one can be called a star
when all are so meritorious, is Miss Ma
ric Heath. Always a favorite, she cap,
tures the audience with her sweet voire
and cute ways. She is unsurpassed in
her representation of a spritely, mis
chievous girl. Sbesings ''Won't You Come
Out and Pla" in such a manner as to de
mand a recall. The singing of T. Wil-
mot Eckert and Emma Berg is delightfuV
It is seldom, indeed, that a company is
able to secure two such singers. And
music loving people will have much to
regret who do not bear them.
On New Yeai's night at Harper's thea
tre Jim Hall, the pugilist, will sppear in
an ktble ic enter lainment, givicg exhi
bitions in the manly art, and altogether
making up a programme which will be
exceedingly pleasing and interesting.
Next Monday evening Billy Catton.the
billiard playor, will hae his grand open
iog at the Club. Schafer, Carter and
Ives, the billiard experts, will be pte ent.
