The death of Conrad Heisel, pioneer
wheelwright and mill owner of this
city, closed the life of another of Cass
county's oldest and most highly re
spected citizens. A suflferer from gan
grene poisoning in the foot, the result
of an old injury, he made a noble strug
gle against the disease till the end
which occurred at his home Wednesday
evening July 28, 1909.
Conrad Heisel was a native of Cell,
Province of Hesse, Darmstadt, Ger
many. He was born April 24, 1830,
and was 79 years, 3 months and 4 days
old at time of his death.
Coming to America he located in Illi
nois and later removed to Plattsmouth
arriving in this city August 6, 1856.
He was married at St. Louis to Miss
Amelia Rubaumen, the newly wedded
couple returning to this city where they
have resided for over 50 years. The
six children bom to this union are
George, Fred and John.sons, andTillie,
Amelia and Anna, daughters, all of
whom with his widow survive him.
Mr. Heisel was a man of excellent
business principles, his word being con
sidered as good as a bond, the confi
dence of friends in his integrity being
attested during the early eighties when
the mill burned down ms friends com
ing forward at once and voluntarily
offering a loan of money to lebuild the
mill. A modern roller mill was con
structed which proved successful be
yond expectation, the loans together
with interest beirg soon paid back.
Old age compelled Mr. Heisel to turn
the management over to his sons, who
are splendid millers and the business
has greatly prospered. The deceased
was a member of the German Lutheran
church and the funeral services were
conducted by Rev. Bruckert of Omaha,
assisted by Rev. Mangelsdorf of this
city. A quartet composedof Mrs. J.

"Where Quality Counts.
THE HOME OF SATISFACTION.
Spokane, Wash., July 31. -Wanted
a bureau of colonization under the con
trol of the federal government, to di
rect tho current emigration to tho re
claimed and unsettled lands of the coun
try and Bhow the homcscekers how he
can make sure of a generous living and
enjoy a satisfactory social life.
Levi Grant Monroe, secretary of the
Spokane chamber of Commerce, "and
representing that organization as a
delegate at the 17th sessions of the
National Irrigation Congress in Spo
kane, August 9 to 14, will present the
foregoing proposition for endorsement
at one of the meetings. In support of
the movement h? said:
"Recognizing the fact that the as
simiation of foreign population is be
coming more difficult year by year and
that the congestion of the large cities
is already a national problem, the best
solution, in my judgment, would be a
well organized and fully equipped bu
reau of information, conducted by the
government. Such a department work
ing on broad lines,with the co-operation
of the commercial organizations, could
handle the newcomers' from foreign
lands and make them self-supporting
almost from the beginning.
"More than that, it would be the
means of giving our own people a
thorough knowledge of the possibilities
in developing the resources of the coun
try. This information, correctly com
piled and presented in concrete form,
would have more weight with the peo
ple in the crowded centers of popula
tion than any other plan that could be
"The present system of settling a
new country is expensive. Jt is too ex
pensive for the prospective- settler,
from the fact that in most instances he
is obliged to make a trip into the coun
try alone before bringing hia family.
If he could have what he knew to be
authoritative information at first hand
and be convinced that conditions are
actually as represented he would not
hesitate to undertake a journey half or
all the way across the continent, thus
saving considerable expense.
"As a "nation the time has come when
more people must till the soil.
This applies to the agricultural districts
in the eastern and New England states
as well as it does to the southern and
western parts of this continent. More
over, farm lite 13 more aigninea touay
than it has ever been before. It has
become a profession, especially in hor
ticulture and husbandry, and as such it
is recognized by the foremost men in
William E. Smyth, originator of the
idea of a national irrigation congress
said of the plan:
"We need a bureau of colonization
that (-hall work at this problem on
scientific lines. Ultimately, we shall
get it as we did the bureau of forestry
and the United States reclamation ser
vice. "It seems to me that the great lesson
we should impress as deeply as possible
on the minds of colonizing hosts, Is
that they need a little land under di-
j verse and intense cultivation, rather
I than big areas that will be wastefully
' used. That is to say, we want the true
home builder rath than the land-grab-jber.
! "There has been much excuse for
land-grabbing in the past the excuse
that it did, after all, assist the develop
ment of the country by interesting merv
' who would do something to' improve
our arid wastes where otherwise noth-
I ing would be done.
"But now the government provides the
! most vital improvement the water
supply; and we should give weight to
another consideration, which is the fact
; that we really have but little land in ,
comnarison to our future needs, and
that this little must be put to the very !
' highest uses.
"I do not believe that any man should j
be permitted to take more than 10 acres '
: of land under a government canal, ex- :
cept in the regions where the seasons
i are very short, ar.d that even there he
should be limited to a maximum of 40
"lhc measure of value is not acreage, !
but productive capacity. Intense cul
tivation multiplies many times over
the productive capacity of a single
acre. ScttN-rs sfhould be taught to ,
take from the land what they need fi"
h'mo consumption, and tha.i to cater
to the market nearest at hand in the
selling of their surplus products. They
will thus make sure of a living.
"On the social side there is much to
be said in favor of the small farm,
which brings neighbors near together,
and even of the village settlement,
which enables them to have such im
provements as good streets, sidewalks
and sewerage, and which brings them
near to all the civic institutions, such
as tho school, the library, the church
and club house.
"The first great battle has been won.
It is putting the water on the land.
With the triumph of national irrigation
in the passage of tho Newlands act of
1902, and the completion of several
great projects, the need of fighting to
secure the reclamation of arid lands
has cua u'd. The policy is established.
Like tjd Massachusetts, it 'speaks for
"Tb next great battle is just be
ginning. It is getting the settler and
establishing him on a basis of absolute
economic security with fine civic and
social institutions. What we need now
is to build the superstructure of social
and industrial life on the broad foun
dation laid by the earlier movement."
Overcome by Heat.
Henry Stendyke was overrome by
the heat Friday morning and for a time
his friends were apprehensive that his
condition might be very serious. This
is the second attack, the first occurring
several days since while at work at the
farm of Fred Gucnther west of the city.
Friday while crossing the street from
the Riley hotel he was again stricken.
Friend assistedhim to bis home on
Vine street. Later in the day upon
consulting a physician his trouble was
pronounced to be sunstroke. While his
condition is not considered serious great
care w ill have to be exercised to pre
vent a recurrence of the trouble.
Fine job work done at this office.

Plattsmouth 1 1 0 0 3 0 0 0 -5'
Louisville 00000000 0-0
The above shows the score by innings
in the ball game at the ball park Satur
day afternoon between Plattsmouth
and Louisville. It was a splendid game
and though the Louisville boys were
gritty and did some very fine playing it
availed them not and they could chalk
up nothing but goose eggs all the way
through. The home team also made
zeros in all except the 1, 2, and 5 in
nings where they made their five scores
and to say they won easily would not
hug the truth so close as to be noticed.
The home team tried out a new bat
tery and were greatly satisfied at the
showing made. Williams kept them
guessing at all times and at no stage of
the game was there much danger of
the visitors batting the ball far out of
Louisville made one double play from
Ingram to Ossenkop, retiring the bat
ter and base runner.
Errors, Plattsmouth five and Louis
ville three. It was a dandy game, no
rag chewing, nobody hurt, and every
body satisfied with the decision! of the
umpire who was Henry Schneider.
