I Held to March Tersa.
The district court grand Jury reported
Saturday afternoon alx Indictments and
was discharged for the term. As Judge
Thomell wm on the point of adjourning
court In order that he might go to Sidney
to spend Sunday with hla family, he turned
the batch of Indictments over to th clerk
of tha court with Instructions to lock
them, up In Ma safe until Monday. No
bond were fixed, no bench warrants Is
sued and th Indictments will not b made
public until Monday.
Tho record, however, show that the
grand Jury failed to return Indictments In
several of the case which had been re
submitted to R. On February 10 Indictments
were quashed In seven caaes. It being
shown to the court on the testimony of
H. V. Battey, former clerk of the district
court, and Ernest Lathrop, former deputy
county recorder, that th grand Jury for
1908 had been 'improperly drawn. Tha In
dictments thus quashed were as follows:
One against John N. Scheffler for run
ning a gambling house; two against H.
V. Battey. one for embetxlerwrtt and one
for forgery; two against May Noble,
one for keeping a house of III fame and
the other for maintaining a nuisance; one
against George Townley for maintaining
a nulsanoe, and one Jointly against Gua
Volkua, Charle Perrtne and William
Frailer for maintaining a gambling house.
The entry of Judge Thornell In th court
record shows that In the case In which
H. V. Battey, former clerk of the district
court, was charged with forgery, the grand
Jury had failed to return a fresh Indict
ment. The entry reads: "Cause dismissed
by grand Jury, defendant discharged and
bond exonerated." No such entry appear
In the record aa to the case In which Mr.
Battey was charged with embeislement, so
It Is presumed that the grand Jury has
found a new Indictment on this charge.
Soma Who Go Free.
The granl Jury failed to return new In
dictments In the following cases which
were resubmitted to It: Georga Townley,
saloon-keeper, charged with maintaining a
nuisance; Charlca Perrlne, Qua Volkua and
William Frailer, formerly Indicted Jointly
on the charge of keeping a gambling, house,
and John N. Sheffler, charged with keeping
a gambling houae.
In th caae of John Sheffler the court de
clined to discharge th defendant and or
dered that he be held to th grand Jury at
the March term of court. Sheffler's bond
was placed at S400. which h furnished dur
ing th afternoon.
The grand Jury appeared to have some
trouble In reaching a conclusion In the
caaea against H. V. Battey, the former
clerk of the . district court . 8hortly after
court convened yesterday - momng it ap
peared before Judge Thornell arid through
Its foreman, A. K. Chambers, ' asked for
In response to a question from the court.
Foreman Chamber stated that the evi
dence before tho grand Jury Indicated that
the funds which Battey waa charged with
embessling had been repaid to the county
and member of the grand Jury desired to
ascertain whether they should take this
fact Into consideration In determining
whether new Indictments should now be re
turned. Judge Thornell read to the Jury
th law on embezxlement, explaining Its
provisions at some length. Tha return of
the property, he Informed the Jury, did not
exonerate the accused person.
Following these Instructions, Foreman
Chambers Indicated that there was some
thing further which the grand Jury de
sired to communicate to th court and at
th former's request all persons except the
Judge, th county attorney and the mem
bers of tha Jury wer excluded from the
court room. County Attorney Hess also
left the court room In a few minutes, leav
ing th Judg and the grand Jury alone.

A tingle newspaper advertisement, standing .
alone, cannot perhaps be said to possess within itself
the quality ot persistency of pertinacity. It can,
however, form a part of and bear out a plan which
a business house has adhered to strictly for years. ,
The trade mark, or name of a house which is
reproduced in newspaper publicity in an individual .
or characteristic style, indicates that each adver
tisement containing it is one of a series or that '
the use of advertising space is an established policy
of the house.
In no other way can a merchant win confi
dence or establish so thorough a credit vith. the
public as by advertising prudently and persistently
in the newspapers.
Confidence is a plant of slow growth, but per-'
sistency is its sun, rain and fertilizer.
When the late Frank Cooper, of Siegel,
Cooper & Co., was running a store in Peoria and .
needed $10,000 he did not go to the bank for it. He
frankly told the people that he wanted to raise this
amount of money and got it by offering them in
ducements for immediate purchases.
Persistency in an advertiser is necessary to
establish such a reputation with the people that ho
can command co-operation like this. .
An advertiser establishes his character with
the public the same as he does with his bank by
persisting in making promises and never failing to
fulfill thm. A credit with the great general public
is a very present help in time of need.
A persistent advertising campaign covering a
period of three years in legitimate newspapers will
seldom fail to produce a good will asset that is worth
more to the advertiser than the entire amount spent
in newspaper space during that time.
In preparing a newspaper advertisement, re-,
member this quality of persistency the fact that it
is published as a part of a house's policy and will
either build or break down prestige.
