SCHERER TAKES OWN LIFE
Body of Missinj Young Man Found
by Searchers in Big Lake.
DESPONDENT FOR SOME TIME
I.nek of AUfli and Death of Both (
Ilia rarents Some Month Asa
Had Preyed Hla
That Edward Scherer, whose failure to
return home Saturday night caused the
members of hU family to fear that he had
committed aulclde by throwing- himself Into
Big lake, had adopted this method of taking
hla life' was proven by the finding early
yesterday morning of the body of the young
men and a note In the pocket of hla coat,
which he had left in the boat
The note, which waa written in pencil
on a half aheet of note paper, waa ad
dressed to the young mtn'i brother and
later. It read:
Dear brother, sisters and nieces: Forgive
me and Just think that I wanted to go.
1 can get no work. 1 am. going to father
and mother. Ooodby, BROTHER ED.
On' the reverse side of the paper was the
name and telephone number of a well
known farmer living near, the city, and It
waa learned yesterday that the name of
the person had been given to young Scherer
by Rev. J. W. Jones, rector of St. Paul's
Bplscripal church, as likely- that he might
be able to give him employment.
In addition to being discouraged at his
failure to secure' worfe young Scherer had
been despondent over the death, of his par
ents, his mother having died last January
and his father In June. He was, it Is
stated, greatly attached to his parents and
ha had brooded over their deaths which had
followed within l lew months of one an
other.' , - .
From Arthur M. Rose and K. B. Sweet,
who have charge of the boats at Big lake,
young Scherer hired a boat Saturday after
noon about 2:30, saying he would want It
only for about an hour or so. . Towards
evening some boys notified Rose that they
had seen the boat tied to, the trestle of the
Illinois Central railroad, which crosses one
end of the lake, and that there was a coat,
hat and umbrella In It. Rose did not pay
any particular attention to the matter at the
time, but later when some other boys who
had been fishing made a similar report, he
decided to Investigate and found the boat
as described by the young lads. Rose then
notfiled W. R. C. Mynster. a brother-in-law
of young Scherer, and Mr. Mynster in
turn notified the young man's brother, John
Bcliercr, withwhom Edward Scherer made
A search for the body, .was made shortly
before 1 o'clock Sunday mornlr.g and it
was found but a short distance from thd
boat and in but four feet of water. The
young man's watch, which wan In his vest
packet, had stopped . exactly at 4 o'clock,
Indicating that Scherer was drowned shortly
before that hour.
The body was brought to tVoodrlng's
undertaking rooms and after being prepared
for burial was taken to the' residence of
the brother, 'John' Scherer, at 410 North
Sixth street, from where the funeral will
be held this afternoon at 6:30 o'clock.
Burliil will be in Kalrvlew cemetery and
Rev. J. W. Jones, rector of St. Paul's Epis
copal church, will conduct the services.
Coroner Treynor stated that an inquest
would not be necessary.
In addition to the brother with whom he
made his home, the young man Is survived
by two sisters, Mrs. V. R. C. Mynster and
Mrs. William Mynster, both of this city.

Factions Elsewhere. I
The republican party is not the only
orgsnlsation in the state where there is
a division through factional strife. Not
to speak of the Knlghta of Pythias, Uie.-e
is the Women's Christian Temperance
union, which Is facing a doubtful mo
ment because of the resignation of Mrs.
Dunham, the president. The Women'j
Christian Temperance union split In this
state, as In all other states, on the ques
tion of supporting the thlrJ party pro
hlbltlonlsts. A year or two ago the so
ciety united again on the election of Mrs.
Dunham as president. She Waa a partisan
and supported ths prohibitionists, taking
a hand In polittca. The nonpartisan wing
is said to have attacked the prohibition
question mors from the pink tea side.
The organisation will meet soon. It is
united now and the doubtful moment Is
over ths election of a president to suc
ceed Mrs. Dunham, who has declared that
she will not seek re-election. Mrs. Anna
Edworth of this city, who was a non
partisan, aeeks ths election, as also Uoea
Mrs. Ida B. Wise of this city, who was a
partisan. Mrs. Carhart of Cedar fUjius,
also of the partisan wing. Is said to be a
receptive candidate. .
Campaign for Prohibition.
Prohibitionist are counting on great
things during the next two years. Rev.
Mr. Barber, superintendent of the Anti
Saloon league, believes that in two years
Iowa will have prohibition. He believes
that the legislature to meet next winter
will either repeal the mulct law or will
vote to resubmit the constitutional amend
ment. He believes that the sentiment In
the state for prohibition has become so
great that the legislature cannot ignore
It. If It votes to resubmit the amend
ment to the constitution, the legislature
of 1911 wilt also have to vote the same
proposition before It can be resubmitted
to the people at an election. In that
event It would be of necessity some over
two years before It would be possible to
Can Com minion Raise Rateaf
Can the State Board of Railroad Com
missioners raise freight rates? The law
says that It can lower them, but It Is
claimed by some lawyers that the lan
guage does not say that they can ba
raised. An application has been filed
with the board by William Ellis, com
merce attorney for the Chicago, Milwau
kee A St. Paul railroad, to have tho
classification of stoneware In carload lots
changed from class D to class B. That
would mean an Increase in the rites.
The commission will hear the complaint
soon and must then decide whether or
not it has authority to raise rates.
It is claimed that crockery should go
at a higher rate, because there Is so
much breakage, and railroads would just
as soon there was no crockery shipped.
It is claimej that If a car is loaded with
crockery and allowed to stand on the
track a week without being moved and
Is then opened it will be found that a lot
of it Is broken because of the expansion
and contraction of the stuff by the tem
perature, and yet If any breakage occurs
the railroad must pay for It. Sometimes
the breakage amounts to more than the
original charge for freight.
Machinery for Fair.
Fifteen carloads of farm Implement ma
chinery Is already on the state lair
grounds and being put In place for the
fair which opens next Thursday. The
tent and awning companies are already
at work putting up tents for the fair.
The work, In fact. Is starting earlier this
year than ever before.

FIGHT ON PENNY DREADFULS
Durer Union in Germany Befina Fight
on Pernicious Literature
TRAFFIC BECOMES ENORMOUS
Eight Thousand Dealers and 80,004
reddlers Are EnsnsTCd lav .Vend

nd Pamphlets. .
BERLIN. Tuesday, Aug.' f "Twelve and
a half million dollars .are- thrown away
every year In Germany by the poorer
classes In the purchase "of pernicious penny
dreadfuls," according to a., statement Just
published by the Durer union, which Is en.
gaged In a campaign against the growing
tendency :n Germany to. read trashy litera
ture. . '
The secretary of the. union vouches for
the astounding statement that, 8,000. book
sellers and 30,000 peddlers are engaged In
selling sensational books, giving complete
tales of a low order: No fewer than 700,000,
000 of these wretched stories have been sold
In the course of a single year.' They are
hawked frOm house to house, from factory
to factory, outside schools and among the
peasants on every farm throughout the em
pire. The peddlers always enter by the
back door or the kitchen stairs. Servant
girls and Ignorant peasants are the- most
fruitful customers, but It Is asserted by
municipal officers that even .people' who are
In receipt of poor relief eften deprive them
selves of necessities In order to save i cents
for a vile rehash of the sensationally em
bellished details of a notorious crime.
Time after time young people are brought
before the courts charged with crimes, to
the committal of which .it la often proven In
evidence that they have been Incited by
reading the vividly portrayed recital of
some noted crime.
A student of the technical school In
Kalserslauten, when charged with stealing
a large number of gold bracelet and
watches from a Jeweler, which h. melted
! down In an apparatus at the school he was
attending, confessed that he had been fired
with the Idea of becoming a clever thief by
reading the life of a Jailbird.
Dr. Ernest Schultz, secretary of ths Durer
union, points out the paucity of good litera
ture in school libraries and suggests the
spending of considerable sums in providing
really good reading matter so as to combat
the spread of the evil caused by the read
