Edward Bennett of This City Ar
rives Home After 19 Months
of Service in the Far East.
This morning Edward Bennett
arrived home from Camp Dodge,
Iowa, where he was mustered out of
the service of the United States
after a period of over two years in
the army of his country. Mr. Ben
nett has put in the last nineteen
months in service in the Philippine
Islands where he has undergone
the long and tedious routine of gar
rison and guard duty that is per
haps one of tho tr.cst trying features
of the army, and whose dull monot
ony in the colonies and is
lands, is especially so. It is need
less to say that the return of this
young man has been the occasion of
much pleasure to the members of
his family and that be is equally
glad to be back in the good old

From Wednesday's Dally.
An appeal has been filed in the
district court in the matter of the
guardianship of Dorothy Hirz, minor,
by the guardian, Mrs. Nellie Schutz,
in which she asks for a reversal of
the Judgment of the county court.
The case grows out of the cus
tody of the little six-year-old daugh
ter of Henry Hirz, Jr., the father
being killed in action iu France on
October 5, 1918, while serving in
the American army. The two little
daughters of Mr. Hirz were placed
under the guardianship of their
aunt, Mrs. Nellie Schutz, and later
Dorothy was placed in the care of
Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Sulser, with
whom she has made her home since
the departure of the father for
A few weeks ago action was brot
n the county court to have the child
restored to the care and custody of
the guardian and this action was
contested by Mr. and Mrs. Sulser,
who desired to retain the little girl
who had been making her home with
them for several months.
The case attracted much attention
in the community in which the
parties to the suit reside and result
ed in the rendition of an opinion r.y
County Judge Allen J. Beeson in
which he ordered that the child
should remain in the care of Mr.
and Mrs. Sulser until further order
of the court. It is from this decision
that the guardian has filed her ap
peal. The case will be heard at the
coming term of the district court.

STANLEY : KUHNS
Former Plattsmouth Young Man
Falls From Scaffolding While
At Work at Los Angeles.
From Wednesday's Dally.
The information was received
here yesterday by David Bahbing-
ton from his niece, Mrs.
Stanley Kuhns, cf Los Angeles,
California, announcing the fact that
her husband had suffered a very
serious accident last week which
will lay him up for a great many
months. Stanley has been engaged
for some time in the work of paint
ing on gh buildings and it was
while so engaged that he met with
an accident. He was engaged in
painting from a swinging platform
or scaffolding and was kneeling at
the time when in some manner lie
lost his balance and fell a distance
of forty-five feet to the sidewalk
causing a fracture of both legs as
well as the left arm. The injured
man was hurried to a hospital and
the broken bones set but it will be
some time before he is able to be up
and around as the fractures are very
severe. the many menus of this
estimable young man will regret
greatly to learn of his misfortune
and trust that he may recover from
it without any permanent injuries

ing as ''The Fence."
From Wt'tlrif fila y's Pally
Sheriff C. D. Quinton was In Oma
ha yesterday looking after the loca
tion of the property of W. F. Diers
which was stolen from his store in
Louisville a week ago Monday,' and
as the result of the excellent work
of the sheriff, a larger part of the
goods taken were located as well as
a large amount of stolen property
that had been brought from Council
Bluffs to Omaha. The "fence"
where the property bad been dispos
ed of was located at Eleventh and
Dodge street, just two blocks from
the Omaha police station, and in the
oint was found all of the shoes that
iad been stolen from the Louisville
man with the exception of a very
few pairs. The proprietor of the
place endeavored to dispose
of the stuff and get it under cover
as when Sheriff Quinton arrived.
the owner of the pawn shop had sev
eral suit cases packed with the
hoes and other articles as if for
hurried transportation. The sheriff
had secured an intimation from the
wounded burglars he took to Omaha
yesterday from Louisville as to the
manner in which they had disposed
of their ill gotten gains and he ac
cordingly began the rounding up of
he various second hand clothing
tores and pawn shops and on readi
ng the cne at Eleventh ar.d Dodge
treet he found the desired goods.
The owner of the shop on diseover-
ng the identity of. the Fheriff was
about the worst scared jew in Oma-
a and as the search for the goods
was commenced the sweat began to
pour out on the Hebrew!? map cf
the owner of the establishment as
C. E. Wescott's Sons
he saw visions of a long trip out in
the state to the quiet little home
that is maintained at Lincoln for
such characters. It was discovered
by the sheriff that the twenty-two
pairs of shoes had been purchased for
the sum of $42 from the men who
had pulled off the robbery and that
they had been leading quite a ca
reer. The purchaser of the stolen
property had shifted them over to
the establishment of a sister-in-law,
also conducting a pawn and second
hand store and she in turn had pass
ed them on to another brother, who
getting cold feet on the proposition
shipped them back to the original
purchaser and who was caught with
the goods on him by the Cass coun
ty sheriff. The Omaha detective
headquarters asked Sheriff Quinton
to have Mr. Diers come to Oinah?
and identify his property and that
they would have the owner of the
pawn shop up before the grand Jury
now in session and try and secure
an indictment that would break up
the business of the buying and sell
ing of stolen property and reduce
the record of crime.
