Mr. Ballew undoubtedly dis likes the notoriety which his connection with the Mabray nana- has brought him and is not Inclined to talk about hts ex perience which owl him 810,000. Mr. Bal lew failed to display any Interest when Informed that Dobblna was still in Council Bluffs. According to Mr. Ballew's story of his fleecing, his case was somewhat different from that of the other "Mikes." Accord ing to his story he was deliberately robbed of his money and did not even get a fake run for his bank roll.

To make a showing; that he was a nan of me ins, as he said In his story to the grand jury, he brought with him the $30,000. After the usual display of wealth had been made by the sang and the beta posted Ballew was Induced to part with his 130.000 and he never saw It again. According to Ballew's story Dobbins disappeared with the stake money and Ballew's (30,000 "representation" rcll.

BCHOLL Is the true name of the mar. who has become famous throughout the country as 'Dia mond Dick", and who controls the entire output of the only genuine manufactured diamond ever produced. Mr. Scholl, or "Diamond Dick", came into the world in 1871. His parents, though In moderate circumstances, were honest and truthful and so thoroughly did they Impress these two vital principals of success upon the mind of young William ' that they were indelibly fixed, never to be erased. Today he attributes his wonderful financial suc cess solely to this early parental training. His youth was not the round of Joy ex perienced by most children, but one of continual hardship and struggle with worldly problems, so that early In life he learned the ways of the business world though only in a meager way and through the trying road of experience. From lbsl to 1890 his revenue was de rived from long hours spent as a boot black and newsboy. With the money saved from this sort of work be was en abled to enter a New York Diamond Syn dicate and two years later made hia first trip to Holland. Since then he has made many European visits. In 184 young Bcholl became Involved with the customs officials and was charged with bringing precious stones Into this country without paying the duty thereon. He was so quitted of the charge, but not allowed to import any more gema. At the age of twenty-fjve he embarked In the Jewelry manufacturing business with several bankers as associates, built the largest jewelry factory In the world and within a year withdrew with a clear profit of )4,000. His next enterprise was In Montreal, Canada, and again with bankers. This time it was with the Rank of Canada, to operate the Rainy Lake Mining St power Co. A large deposit of gold was dis covered and the bank bought Scholl's In terebt at an enormous figure. Bringing all his money in a satchel to Minneapolis he backed the Hidden For tune gold mine. In 1898 ficholl bought the Golden Bell mine at Cripple Creek, Colorado. The first day's prospecting of the Oulden Bell turned eighteen speci mens which assayed 11.80(1 to the ton. Jcho(I sold the mine the following week for Just ten times Its cost. In 1801 Kcholt read In a scientific Journal of a French chemist who had succeeded In producing a genuine diamond. He secured permis sion from President McKlnley to Investi gate the merits of the claim and Import the stone. The Parisian discoverer of this wonder ful process secured a patent for his secret. Marvelous laboratories were built snd the manufacture of the stone on an extensive scale was begun. Bcholl con tracted for the entire output of the labor atories when he was positively assured that they were genuine diamonds, except that they were manufactured Instead of dug from the earth, and would pass every known test that any diamond ever re ceived. Both In lasting brilliancy and hardness they surpass many natural stones. January first, 1908, the patent on the manufactured gem expired and Scholl Is now able to sell them at Just about one third their former value. Twenty thou sand letters are in the possession of Mr. Bcholl, written by some of the most prominent and wealthy people In the country, after a number of years wearing the stones. All tostify to their wonderful merits. The manufactured article has defied de tection by some of the most eminent dia mond experts and Jewelers In this and foreign countries. The stents are en dorsed by the world's greatest scientists, technical magazines acknowledge their ner1t. and liaxtor street brokers admit them the equivalent ot natural gems. Irv hls state the stones are endorsed es pecially by 8. A. Fees, of Kearney, who is secretary and treasurer of the Nebraska Retail Jewelers association. "Diamond Dick" Is entertaining thou sands every day by demonstrating the merits of his stones in the window of Myers-Dillon's drug store at Blxtsenth and Farnam. The stories are on sale here and at the better Jewelry store , but the 'utter must make a profit on nil men han dles and therefore charge a higher price than that aiked for the etiue article by "Dlaiuoud Dick."
