SEIDEWITZ’s Death Shock To Friends
Funeral of Florist Who Took Life Saturday Planned For Wednesday
The funeral of Edwin A. SEIDEWITZ, a leading florist of Baltimore and former Mayor of Annapolis, who committed suicide by shooting himself through the right temple, will probably be held Wednesday from his residence, Belvidere avenue and Old Pimlico road, West Arlington. Services will be in charge of the Masons.
Friends of Mr. SEIDEWITZ were shocked when they read in The News Saturday of his death, but those who knew him intimately said he had been suffering for some time with mental and nervous disorders since the United States entered the war, and that conditions had been preying on his mind.
His body was discovered by members of his family just before breakfast Saturday after they heard the sound of a pistol shot come from his room. Coroner H. H. EMLICH, after an investigation, gave a verdict of suicide.
Mr. SEIDEWITZ was 52 years old and was born on Columbia avenue. AT one time he was president of the Rotary Club, but resigned from this office following criticism of his actions in the Hotel Junker in the spring of 1917 when he entertained men from German steamers in port and later kissed several of them.
For some time he had been depressed over war conditions and the effect they were having on his flower shop at 323 North Charles street.
He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Adele SEIDEWITZ; one daughter, three sons and one sister.
Marshal CARTER has been asked by the Chief of Police of Elizabeth, N. J., to find a Mrs. W. F. BARE of Presbury street, and to notify her that her daughter, Mrs. Marie Bare LEHME, is dead in that city. The telegram gave no details of the woman’s death.

He served in the internal revenue office at Baltimore when the State Administration was Republican, during Governor GOLDSBORO’s term. He was chairman of the Howard County Democratic State Central Committee, past master of Solomon’s Masonic Lodge of Savage and for 25 years superintendent of the Savage Methodist Episcopal Sunday-school.

Private FITZGERALD was with the Three Hundred and Seventeenth Infantry. He left Wheeling with the Ohio county contingent of draftees on April 2, going to Camp alee. When he registered for the draft he was placed in Class 3 because he had an aged mother who is blind. A younger brother, who is a plumber, was in Class 1. Private FITZGERALD appeared before the draft board and asked to be transferred to Class 1 and have his brother placed in Class 3, stating that he didn’t have a trade and his brother had and was therefore better able to take care of his mother. He was transferred and called into service.

News Of Maryland And The Virginias
Maryland farmers in the American Expeditionary Force are telling the folks back home of French methods of agriculture. Private Walter BRANDENBURG writes his father, S. E. BRANDENBURG of Linwood: "We sure see some funny sights over here. The farmers seem to raise good crops but are very much behind time in tools and equipment. In some parts of France the wheat is still cut with a cradle and the grass with a seythe [sic]. They have very few four-wheeled wagons and most of the hauling is done on a large, heavy, two-wheeled cart to which is harnessed a big horse or an ox. The stock they have is fine—big, fat cows and oxen and sleek horses; also lots of sheep and goats.
"The Germans are afraid of the Americans; they sure do hate cold steel," writes George K. MILLER, assistant chemist at a cement mill in France, to a friend in Union Bridge.
Private Floyd PHILLIPS of Hurlock, now "somewhere in France," in a letter home says "the Red Cross is the greatest organization in the world," and, "even if the club at Hurlock is small, it is one spike in the big wheel." He tells mothers who have boys in France "not to worry about them for our Uncle Sam is treating us fine and just as soon as we secure France her freedom and peace to the world is restored we will all come home.
Mrs. Esther J. BONNEVILLE of Snow Hill received a letter from her son, Private Marion S. BONNEVILLE, U. S. Marines, who was wounded in France several weeks ago. He wrote:
"I was slightly wounded July 19 near Soissons, where the Allied forces pushed the Germans back. We are pushing forward, and hope soon to be back with my regiment. I have been transferred from the French Hospital to Base Hospital 34, in Nantes, which is an American hospital. I am getting fine treatment, and it is a pleasure to lie in a nice clean bed. I hope the war will soon be over, and I believe it will."
He told his mother that before he was wounded he frequently saw his brother Elton, who is a dispatch bearer in the motorcycle squad and received his wound while in the performance of his hazardous duties. He concluded his letter with the cheery words: "Don’t worry over us, as we will be going home before long. The Germans are on the retreat and I don’t think they can last much longer."
George Alfred HOPKINS, who was wounded in April and reported killed, is now in Ellis Island Hospital, New York, and has written his daughter he will visit her at her Cardiff home in a short time.
