While a horrified crowd looked help-
lessly on Will Cotter, a brick contractor
working on the new Bedell building, on
Avenue C, fell five stories to his death
Tuesday afternoon. He struck on his
back and shoulders. Although his body
was badly crushed, several bones being
broken. he« regained consciousness soon
after the fall and lived for two hours.
The accident occurred at 5 o'clock.
The cause of his fall is unknown. He
was riding to the top of the building on
a temporary elevator used to con\*-.v
brick and mortar. When lie had reached
the fifth floor the workmen saw him
stagger, and before assistance could be
rendered him lie fell backward off the
elevator and plunged to the ground be-
low. His cry as he fell and the ex-
clamations of bis fellow-workmen attract-
ed the attention of the crowds standing
on Avenue C. and many of them saw
the fall to death.
When companions reached him Cotter
was unconscious, but soon recovered
consciousness and complained of a pain
in the back, lie did not seem to realize
lie was badly hurt, although lie struck a
wooden platform with such force as to
break a thick plank.
An ambulance was summoned and lie
was conveyed to the Santa Rosa Hos-
pital. Here he was attended by Dr.
Amos Graves, hut died when placed on
th" operating table, before the physician
could do anything.
Cotter was L'6 years old and is sur-
vived by a widow and two brothers who
reside in this city and a number of rela-
tives in Kansas City. He has been in
the city for about six years, doing con-
tract work. He had helped in the con-
struction of the St. Anthony Hotel and
several other large buildings. Me was
well and favorably known among those
engaged in the building trades. The
body will be taken tonight to Atchison,

THEY ARE (ilVEN INSTRUCTION
IN HRST AID TO INJURED.
First Scout Is Taken Over (he City and
Alertness and Observation Are
Tested—Country Trip Next.
The scouts' patrol, recently organized
in San Antonio, Is getting into trim for
real, practical work. The boys arc find-
ing new interest every day In the plan
they have been following under the direc- j
tion of George S. Chessum, their scout- j
master. Interest is being shown by boys
outside of the Youkj Men's Chrlsiiani
Association group, from which the fii>t
practical work has come.
Tuesday evening the scouts wh have
passed the tenderfoot stage were given a
few lessons in first aid to injured by I"
M. .1 Bleim, who had the boys at
fice for an hour, and they were shown |
the proper methods of bandaging for
bruises, cuts and other injuries. This
course nf first aid study covers a period
of twenty weeks and upon completion of
the course and after standing a satM.i--
tory examination, a certificate will be
issued showing that the spoilt as <| a

Mr. Chessum says that he is giving the
scouts the work as outlined in the offi-j
cial text of the Boy Scouts of America i
and that it will be a full and compre-1
hensive course. All the requirements of
the scout plan will be adhered to, and !
it will mean something to the bojs in
the way of a practical education when
they have completed the work us out-;
lined. Some new features of the work
are given the group every day.
SCOUT OVER CITY.
After the first lesson In first aid by
r>r. Bleim, the boys were taken for a
little scout over the city Tuesday night i
by Mr. Chessum. The interesting experi-
ment of quickening the alertness and
closeness of observation of the boys was
tested by the shop window method. The
boys were taken to a decorated shop
window and after looking at the display
for a few minutes were taken away.
After a lapse of several minutes the
boys were told to name all the objects
in the window they could remembt i The
test proved Interesting.
The first scout in the open will take,
place next Saturday. The boys wi'i be!
allowed to purchase some food supplies1
In the city and they will not take atn
cooked food with them—everything will
be cooked in camp. The open air scout- i
ing plan is causing much enthusiasm
among those, boys who will make the j
trip. Other trips will be made as often
as the weather will permit when the
boys can find time to get away from
their school and home duties.

ZOUAVES MEET FOR LAST TIME
Final Reunion of Famous Chicago Or-
ganization Is Held.
CHICAGO, Oct., 11.—Eight grizzled war-
riors who survive the once famous United
Stales Zouave cadets, of which Colonel
Elmer Ellsworth, the first officer killed
in the Civil War, was the original com-
mander, sat down to a banquet last night
at the Wellington Hotel. It was the
last reunion. The roll was called for the
last time, and never again will the fa-
mous Chicago Zouaves meet under the
old flag to recall the battles.
Once they were 120 strong. They chal-
lenged tlie world. There was not a better
drilled corps in the Nation. They claimed
the championship and the claim was not
disputed They traveled all through the 1
Kast. and South in IWi to find competitors
who would march beside them. They went
to West Point and the greatest masters
til' military technique passed them for
all they claimed and added praises that
were not expected.
When the war broke out the men went
into the Federal service as officers, but
the organization w;i* so firm that It never
broke up except as the men wpre re-
moved by death.
But last night they saw that there was
no use trying to get together again. The
youngest man there was Frank E. Yates,
ii8 years old. col. H. Owight Laflin, the
eighth commanding officer to survive, sat
at the head of the table. He Is 81 years
