AD CLUB FILM
LARGE CROWD IS PRESENT AT
LYRIC TO WITNESS ILLUS
From Thursday's Daily.
The lecture given last evening at
the Lyric theater under the aus
pices of the Ad club of this city, com
posed of some of the leading business
men., and which had been furnished
by the National Cash Register com
pany of Dayton. Ohio, proved a real
treat to the business men of the city
who were in attendance.
The lecturer. W. H. Farley, is a
young ma:i of marked ability and
keen insight into the modern meth
ods of doing business and the con
duct of large business enterprises and
his discussion during the evening was
assisted by slides showing the right
and wrong means of attracting and
holding trade and the steps that the
business man should take to insure
his suecess in a mercantile line.
One of the main portions of the
talk of Mr. Farley was devoted to
advertising, which as emphasized by
the speaker anI shown by the film
was one of the greatest means of pro
moting a successful business. The
film siiowed a number of advertise
ments prepared for newspapers giv
ing the advantages of proper ad writ
ing, the value of white s-pace in an
ad and the art of concentrating the
main idea of the ad into a compact
form whre it would arrest the at
tention of 'he reader and hold their
interest. To illustrate the idea of
newspaper advertising the film show
ed the housewife running over in
her mind the arti- les that she might
desire to purchase and then the ar
rival of the newsboy with the paper,
her opening it and seeing in it the
advertisements of the articles she
The art of salesmanship was also
discussed, and a showing of the alive
and alert clerk as against the indo
lent and careless clerk was shown
as a part of the business etfieciency
Window dressing was also brought
out in the lecture and gave many
very valuable points to the audience.
"Following the address and show
ing of the film the business men
held an informal session to discuss
local problems and took up that of
the trucking of goods from the whole
sale market in Omaha to this city by
merchants and it was the almost uni
versal expression that the merchants
of the city should co-operate in di
verting this freight handling from
the trucks to the Burlington rail
road that has so large a part in the
community life. The merchants indi
cated their desire for co-operation
with all the citizens and the railroad
in giving all the aid possible to the
railroad that runs into this city and
whieli lias been a large factor here
and they will endeavor in the future
to see that wherever possible there
will l,e -opera:r..n with the Uur
lingtoii as regards the freight busi
ness of the citv.

MAKE CAPTURE OF
WELL KNOWN YEGGS
Two of the Familiar Figures of the
Underworld of Omaha and
Council Bluffs Taken.
From Thursday's Dally.
Last evening Chief of Police Jones
and Officer Chandler were called out
to the vicinity of Kighth and Pearl
street Iby the report of a suspicious
appearing pair of men and a car
which they had parked in the shade
of a tree near the residence of C. C.
The police at the time little sus
pected that they were to deal with
two of the best known yeggs in this
portion of Iowa and Nebraska, but
such proved to be the case as the
men have been identified as two of
the most prominent crooks in Coun
cil Dluffs and who have been impli
cated in several deals in the past.
The officers found on reaching the
scene of action that the car that had
been so carefully parked contained
a large and complete assortment of
tools for the burglars trade and
among the articles found was a breast
drill as well as several smaller drills
and chisels as well as tools for prying
open windows and a quantity of fuse
such as is used by safe blowers. As
scon as the articles were found in
the car the police notified Sheriff C.
H. Quinton and the two men who
had Leen found near the car were
turned over to the sheriff for safe
keeping and lodged in the county Jail.
The men when arrested gave the
names of Frank lirown and Jack
Kearns and it later developed on in
vestigation by Sheriff Quinton that
the man giving his name as Brown
was In reality Hoy Green, one of the
notorious bad men of .Council Bluffs
and who had been strongly implicat
ed In several previous cases of burg
lary. The Man Kearns is also re
ported by the Council Bluffs police
department as being a bad actor.
Both men are now confined in the
county Jail to await the filing of in
formation against them by County
Attorney Cole and will probably face
a long stretch in the state peniten
tiary at Lincoln.
VilIiam Hughes of the bankers
association that is guarding against
the work of burglars has notified
Sheriff Quinton that he will be in
the city to look over the men and
to ascertain if they are parties want
ed in any of thebank robbing cases
over the state.
PAYMENT OF SCALP
Opinion by County Attorney that
Matter Must be Submitted to
Voters is Responsible.
The payment of the bounties on
the scalps of wolves and coyotes has
ceased in Cass county as the result
of the request of the county officials
that the county attorney look up
the law In the matter.
Heretofore it has been the policy
to pay the bounties under the pro
visions of Section 478 of the law,
which was amended by the legisla
ture of 1919. and which provided for
the payment of $3 per scalp for
coyotes and $6 per scalp for wolves.
In looking up the law County At
torney A. G. Cole discovered that
while the legislature, repealed and
amended certain parts of section 478,
they did not repeal section 479,
which provides that the question of
payment of the bounties shall be
submitted lo the voters of the county
before the county officers have the
authority to pay the same. In order
that the matter may be placed be
fore the voters it is provided that a
petition of fifty legal voters be sub
mitted to the board of county com
missioners requesting that this ques
tion be placed on the ballot and the
commissioners shall then order the
matter placed on the official ballot
at the next regular election.
This provision of the law has
caused the county clerk and treas
urer to cease payment of the bounties
as in the past and as there will be
no regular election until 1922, it
seems that there will be no bounties
issued until at least that time as that
is the earliest date it could be sub
mitted to the people if it were so

Memory of Good Woman.
Fiom 'Thursday s Pally.
Yesterday afternoon at :he St.
Paul s Evangelical church where for
many years the departed had been a
devout worshipper, was held the fun
eral services of Mrs. Fred Heinrich,
who passed away at her home in
this city Sunday evening.
The church was filled to overflow
ing by the old friends who had as
sembled to render to the old and well
loved friend their tribute of respect
and love and to share with the scr
i owing husband and chcildren the
grief that the separation has brought
to them'. The services were conduct
ed by Rev. H. Kottieh. pastor of the
church who spoke briefly in both En
glish and German of the life of the
good woman who had been called
from her household to the bosom of
her Maker, and of the beautiful chris
tian character that had won her the
love of all with whom she had been
associated in her lifetime. To those
who were left behind to feel the an
guish of the separation of this earth
the minister held the promise of the
Master that the lives so rudely torn
asunder here should be united in the
hereafter when the pain of parting
should be no more. He spoke of the
wonderful spirit of fortitude with
which the departed lady had awaited
the summons to her final rest and
the beautiful memory that her life
would become to the family and
friends in the future years until they
one by one might join the mother
and wife in the hereafter.
The wealth of beautiful flowers at
tested the feeling of respect and love
held for the departed in the commun
ity where she has so long made her
home and which rests on her last
earthly abode as the testimonial of
the feeling of the old friends.
The body was laid to rest in the
Oak Hill cemetery, the pall bearers
being selected from the old neigh
bors of the family as follows: George
Lutz. Louisville, George Schantz.

DIES AT HOS
PITAL IN OMAHA
DEATH COMES SUDDENLY AS HE
TOOK SICK LAST EVENING AND
WAS HURRIED TO OMAHA
From Friday's Daily.
This morning the startling news
was received here shortly after 9 o'
clock announcing the death at the
lmmanuc-1 hospital in Omaha of Jacob
Tritsch. one of the old and distin
guished residents of Cass county and
for a long period of years a resident
of this city and vicinity.
Mr. Tritsch has been a sufferer
from bladder trouble for some years
pas but bad not shewn any strious
condition and had been around on the
streets every day as usual until last
evening when he was taken very sud
denly ill and his condition grew so
serious that he was taken by auto at
midnight to the Immanuel hospital in
Omaha in hopes of giving him reliet
from his suffering but without avail
and he passed away shortly before
9 o'clock this morning.
Jacob Tritsch was born in Germany
June 17, 1849 and received a portion
of his early education in his native
land. His father. Philip Tritsch died
in Germany when Jacob was but
seven years of age and two years
later the mother with her little fam
ily sailed for the new world to find
their home amid the more pleasant
surroundings and located in Tazwell
ccunty. Illinois, near the city of Pe-
kin, where they resided for a number
of vears and where the mother was
married for the second time to Philip
Horn, a resident of that locality.
After reaching America the young
man was given an education in the
.schools of Tazwell county during the
winter months and completed his
scholl work there.
In January 1SG6 Mr. Tritsch and
his mother, stepfather and other rel
atives arrived in Cass county from
their home in Illnois after an over
land journey of eighteen days and the
family settled in Plattsmouth pre
cinct where they had secured a tract
of land. Mr. Tritsch having reached
his majority in this county decided to
revisit the scenes of his earlier years
in Illnois and remained there for one
season, returing in 1S72 to Cass coun
ty where he has since made his home
and won for himself independence
and comfort in his declining years
by his thrift and industry. On Jan
uary IS, 1872. he was married at Pe
kin, Illnois to Miss Elizabeth Volk
who accompanied the young husband
on his return to Nebraska and assis
ted him in the struggles of the early
days and the securing of their success.
In the year 187 5 the family removed
from their home in Platsmouth pre
cinct to Eight Mile Grove where Mr.
Tritsch became the owner of a fine
farm of 240 acres, which he resided
upon until some twelve vears ago
when the family moved to Plats-
mouth and have since made their
The deceased was a lifelong mem
ber of the German Evangelical
church and to the time of his death
was a firm believer in the teachings
of the church.
There remains to mourn the death
of this good man, the widow and
three sons. County Treasurer Mich
ael Tritsch, and Jacob Tritsch. Jr.,
of this city, and Philip Tritsch re
siding on the farm near this city.
During his residence in this
county Mr. Tritsch has been actively
identified with the political life of
the community and was a strong sup
porter of the democratic party and
was elected for several terms as com
missioner from the first district. He
wsa a member of the county board
at the time of the erection of the
Cass county court house and has al
ways been active in the publio af
fairs of the community.
A man of splendid character and
a most unusually genial disposi
tion his loss to the community will
be keenly felt and even more so by
the suddenness with which it has
come onto the family and friends.
The body will be brought here
this evening at 4:30 and be taken
to the home on West Locust street.
where it will lay in state. The fun
eral services will be held on Sunday
