Raises Check. I
Albert Schwartz, a young boy four-!
teen years of acre who ha been working !
for Luke Wiles or. his farm near i
Plattsnwuth, was arrested on the ser
ious charge of raising the amount
written on a check with which Mr.
Wiles had paid him. The boy had
committed two offenses it seems.
The first was in raising a check from
?2.50 to $12.50 by writing in the words
ar.d placing a figure one before the
This was about May 22 and he re
ceived the money on this check at
Aug. Bach & Co. 's store. The check
came back to Mr. Wiles through the
usual channels, but in the meantime
the boy had received another check
amounting to $2.10, which he also pro
ceeded to raise to $12.50. He erased
the pencil marks on this one and filled
it in with ink, later trying to get it
cashed at the store of Zuckweiler &
Lutz. Mr. Lutz did not like the
looks of the check and would not cash
it, so the young fellow took it to the
Cass County Bank. Mr. Patterson
thought it looked awkward and after
questioning him, phor.cd Mr. Wiles,
who took the matter up and had young
Schwartz arrested Wedndsday morning.
The boy is the son of Mr. and Mr?.
Albert Schwartz and they keenly feel
the trouble into which their son has
fallen. There seems to be no reason
for his action and Mr. Wiles expressed
deep sympathy for the boy's parents,
and stated that he did not like to cause
them grief by a prosecution. He
thinks the lesson has made enough im
pressionon the boy so that he might be
lit off w.th a severe scare and warntnrj
The law would send the boy to the
reform school, but the matter is still
open, as he was paroled in the custody
of his parents pending the return of
County Attorney Ramsey from Tvxas.
Chas. Warner and Chas. Troop have
each purchased a fine new automobile
from the firm of Parmele & Barter in

future experience that it pays ti buy
machines of standard make.

P. II. Tritsch and wife of Cullom
were in the city Saturday. Mr. Tritsch
bought 490 acres os fine Custer County
land some time ngo, and it is rumored
he could sell the same at a profit of
$25 an acre now.
This was a good investment, as his
Lreturn would bo about $12,000 in little
more than a year.
