CHAUFFEUR DROWNED: At Thompson’s Lake Friday Evening — $250 Reward for Recovery of Body — Canoe Tips Over.
Early last Friday evening, Charles Schumacker, chauffeur for Theodore Waterman of Albany, who is stopping at the Lakeside Hotel, Thompson’s Lake, was drowned by the upsetting of a canoe.
Mr. Schumacker had just come in with his car from the city, and after running it in the garage went down to the lake and seating himself in a canoe pushed out from the shore. The man in charge of the boats started to row from the dock with two lady passengers at about the same time. They had proceeded but a short distance before the ladies exclaimed that the man in the canoe had upset, and he immediately rowed to the scene. Others soon after arrived but the body did not come to the surface nor has it been recovered up to this time.
Schumacker was highly thought of by Mr. Waterman and he has extended every energy for the recovery of the body and now offers a reward of $250 for its recovery.
This is the first case of drowning in this lake in many years and the community is much stirred over the event.
