REDWOOD, Jan. 24. -- Mr. and Mrs. William Spies were given a surprise party last evening at their home. The occasion was the 50th anniversary of their wedding.

A number of relatives and friends gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ahles at 5 p.m. and from there went to the Spies home nearby. They found Mr. and Mrs. Spies alone sitting in comfort in the kitchen and getting ready for the evening meal. As one after the other of the party trooped in and showered them with congratulations they began to realize the significance of the occasion and were overcome. They were thoroughly surprised. The self invited guests brought full baskets with them and while the bridal couple were ushered into the front room preparations were made for supper. The dining room was prettily decorated with crepe paper in a color scheme of yellow and white. A large golden basket of yellow daffodils formed the centerpiece. This was a gift from the children of Mr. and Mrs. Spies. Everything in the room carried out the thought of the golden anniversary. Before the anniversary couple there was a huge wedding cake with a miniature bride and bridegroom on it. Besides that there was a wedding cake with 50 candles. After the guests were seated the Rev. H. B. Krusa presented the bridal couple with gold pieces and numerous other gifts and read the many greetings from friends far and near. After supper cards and other games were enjoyed.

FRANZ SCHMID PASSES AWAY AGED 59 YEARS

Well Known Musician Had Been in Ill Health for About Three Months

F U N E R A L O N SUNDAY

Had Long Been Prominent in Musical Circles of City--Services Will Be Held at Trinity Church

Franz Rudolph Schmid, well known in Watertown as a band leader and piano manufacturer, died at his home, No. 111 Paddock street at 5:45 oíclock Wednesday afternoon aged 59 years, following an illness of 13 weeks from septic poisoning or septic endocarditis brought on through a diseased condition of the teeth. For some time no hope has been held out for the recovery of Mr. Schmid as his disease is nearly always fatal. Death came very easily to Mr. Schmid. For some time he had been in a semi-conscious condition and at the time death occurred was totally unconscious.

Mr. Schmidt (sic) was born in Carthage August 6, 1863, the son of Joseph and Anna Apstag Schmid,. Mr. Schmidís father was a native of Bavaria and his mother was a Swiss. After spending a few years in Carthage the family moved to Lowville where Mr. Schmid learned the trade of cabinet making. His father had been in the furniture business in Carthage and he had acquired a liking for that business at that time. It was in Lowville, too, that Mr. Schmid laid the foundation for his musical career which later made him so well known. Coming from a musical family he took great interest in music and studied the cornet. As a young man Mr. Schmid and a friend, Frank Thompson, of Lowville put on a musical act in which Thompson would finger the valves of the cornet as Mr. Schmid blew on the instrument. The act was called the Swiss duet.

In 1886 he was married to Miss Jennie Finch, daughter of E. C. Finch of Lowville, owner and editor of the Lowville Democrat. Following his marriage he and his wife moved to Rochester and stayed there until 1890 when they returned to Carthage. In partnership with F. D. OíKief Mr. Schmid entered the furniture manufacturing business. The panic of 1893 caused the firm to dissolve and Mr. Schmid left for New York where he learned the piano business from the ground up. He then returned to Carthage and there started the manufacture of pianos.

The pianos made by Mr. Schmid in Carthage were the first and probably the only ones ever made in Jefferson county. The first order made up was 25 pianos and when these were sold 75 more were made. In the manufacture of these pianos Mr. Schmid did nearly all the work including the veneering, tuning and sale. He also obtained two patents on improvements which he invented. The first piano which he sold went to F. W. Colburn, president of the First National Bank of Carthage. The first piano which he ever made he kept and it is now the possession of his son, who intends to make a present of it to the Jefferson County Historical Society when he is through with it.

In 1896 upon request of Col. J. M. Boyer head of the National Guard in Watertown, to come to Watertown to instruct the 39th Separate Company band. Mr. Schmid responded and built up a very creditable military musical organization. At this time he composed several pieces of band music including the 39th Separate Company March which was made famous by Sousa and the Zuleika waltz. In 1905 when the famous Red and Black football team played in Madison Square Garden under the management of the late J. B. Wise, Mr. Schmid as leader of the Fourth Battalion band accompanied the team and the band gave daily concerts. At this time he attracted considerable attention as a cornet soloist and received several very flattering offers to play with famous bands.

In 1906 Mr. Schmid and his family moved to Watertown. It was hoped by Mr. Schmid to be able to increase the capital of his business and increase production. However the Hallett & Davis Company induced Mr. Schmid to take over the distribution of their product. He opened a store in the Lansing block to sell pianos in 1906 and had been there ever since.

Mr. Schmidís memory will ever be enshrined in the memory of members of the musical fraternity with whom he was associated. He was always eager to lend his help in the furtherance of music and many of the present day musicians owe their start to the help given by ďPopĒ Schmid as he was known to all his friends. In his later years he had a band of his own and was also the director of the Shrine band of the local temple. This band was formed by Mr. Schmid about six years ago and has built up an enviable reputation in Masonic circles.

Mr. Schmid was a member of many fraternal organizations in the city including the F. and A. M., Watertown Commandery, Knights Templar, Media Temple and the Elks. He was a communicant of Trinity church.

The funeral arrangements have not as yet been finally completed. The funeral will be held from Trinity Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 oíclock. Burial will be in Brookside.

SHOOTS WOMAN, KILLS HIMSELF

L. D. Mathews, Locomotive Engineer, Takes Life at Guilfoyle Apartment

MRS. GRACE G. COCHRANE, CITY, IS RECOVERING AT HOSPITAL

SUFFERS BULLET WOUND IN RIGHT CHEEK AND LEFT SIDE OF THROAT

Penned By Mathews on March 22, It Tells of Suicide Plans Because of ďHeaps of TroubleĒ -- Man Estranged From Wife--Statement From Mrs. Cochrane Sought

Leslie D. Mathews, 48, locomotive engineman, Guilfoyle apartments, Stone street, shot and killed himself this morning at 8:30 with a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, after seriously wounding Mrs. Grace G. Cochrane, 35, of 916 Salina street. The shooting took place in the third floor apartment of Mathews. Police are attempting to learn how the woman came to be in the apartment.

Twice Mathews fired at the woman, who is employed as saleslady at the Lennon & Clarke store, Arsenal street, only one bullet striking her. The other missed the woman by inches, police say. Mrs. Cochrane, who is at the Mercy hospital in a serious condition, suffered a wound in the right side of the cheek, and the left side of the face below the jaw, where the bullet made its exit. She will recover, Dr. F. R. Calkins believes.

Police were called a few minutes after the shooting. When they arrived they found Mathews, lying on the floor of the apartment kitchenette, dead. There was a bullet wound in the right temple. The bullet, police found, left through the left side of the face. Matthews, who was on his back, had the revolver clenched in his right hand.

The woman was found on the second floor of the apartment building. She was supporting herself on the railing, when Dennis E. Guilfoyle, the apartment owner, and two of his assistants rushed to her aid. Mrs. Cochrane had crawled from the place where the shooting occurred on the top floor to the second floor, on her hands and knees.

Mr. Gulfoyle had summoned Dr. J. Monroe Smith as soon as he was informed of the tragedy by Mrs. Carrie Barkley, who is maid at the apartment building. When the physician arrived, he examined Mrs. Cochraneís wounds and ordered her to the hospital at once. She was tkan to the hospital in the Guilfoyle ambulance.

Suicide Note Found.

The fact that Mathews had been contemplating suicide for some time was revealed this morning in a note that was found by Assistant District Attorney Howard B. Donaldson, who investigated the case. The note was among Mathewsí personal effects in his apartment.

ďTrouble for years has been heaped upon me,Ē Mathews wrote in the note, which revealed that he had planned to commit suicide for several days. The note carefully written in ink on linen paper, was dated March 22.

There was no place in the note, however, in which Mrs. Cochraneís name was mentioned nor was there any other persons mentioned, who Mathews held responsible for all of his trouble. The note continued:

ďI wish to make public in case lifeís struggle reaches an end in my life that trouble has been heaped upon me and I see no end to the trouble that has made living burdensome, depriving me of my friends and associates. I honestly exonerate any living soul, near friend or person responsible for the end. I am very much depressed to leave my good friends who have helped me carry the sorrows and burdens. To this end God bless them and their kindness rest with me forever. So good-bye, dear friends and mother, who knows my sorrows. God protect her.Ē

Mrs. Cochrane Questioned.

Although the investigation by the county officials and city police has not been started, it is expected the inquest will be held this afternoon. The officers were at the hospital this morning and talked with Mrs. Cochrane, who said that she went to the Guilfoyle apartment to see Mrs. Barkley about some furs. She told the assistant district attorney that she hardly knew Mathews and was not interested in him.

At the Lennon & Clarke store this morning Dennis H. Clarke, one of the partners said he understood that Mrs. Cochrane had gone to the Guilfoyle apartment ďon some business about furs.Ē He said that he believed Mrs. Cochrane knew Mr. Mathews as he had often come into the store to make small purchases and he usually made them from Mrs. Cochrane, who is a saleslady in the store.

The assistant district attorney said that he would probably call at the hospital late this afternoon and try to obtain an affidavit from Mrs. Cochrane regarding the shooting. He said that her condition was such this morning that he did not want to talk with her long. It is expected that several other witnesses will be called this afternoon and sworn.

The body of Mathews is being held at the Guilfoyle morgue and a post morten (sic) will be performed this afternoon by Dr. J. Monroe Smith.

The officials were unable to explain this morning why Mrs. Cochraneís coat was in Mathewsí apartment, when she had gone to the Guilfoyle apartment to see Mrs. Barkley. It is understood from persons in the apartment that Mrs. Cochrane arrived at the Guilfoyle apartment about 8:30.

It was learned that about 8:45 Mrs. Cochrane rushed down the corridor on the third floor of the building and told Mrs. Barkley that Mathews had threatened to shoot her. She asked Mrs. Barkley to go to Mathewsí apartment and get her coat. Mrs. Barkley refused but said she would accompany her to the door.
