Two men who gave their names
as Sherry Scott and J. H. Rogers,
Tulsa, Okla., farmers, were arrested
yesterday afternoon by Detectives
Trobey and Bolar as they stepped
from the Castle hotel to their wait
ing automobile. . '
Officer Trobey says Scott offered
to give him $1,000 in cash if he
would let him go, and then both men
offered their $1,400 and $1,200 dia
mond studs for their freedom.
Scott is 29 years old and Rog
Money in Grips.
When taken to Central police sta

be filled with $1,272.68 in nickels
and dimes done up in Des Moines
State bank wrappers.
. Two revolverj were also found in
the grips. .
When taken into Chief of Detec

He escaped from the Oklahoma

He escaped under fire.
He admitted that the money lie
carried in the grips was part of the

Rogers was not connected with
the robbery and as far 'as cott

Both are beinw held.
Scott had $800 in cash on his per
son and Rogers $170. Between them
they had $100 in small change scat
tered in their top coat pockets.
The money in the grip was neatly
packed into a candy box.
Police authorities are making an
effort to identify Scott as the third
man in the recent Howe bank rob

The Origin of , a Trade M6tto
A Business Talk by J. Hayden
May 25, 1920. .,
Here is an extract from an interesting letter written
by an old customer and addressed to a department mana
ger at Hayden 's: '
"Having told, you how pleased I am with the pur
chases I have made at Hayden 'a, I want to tell you of the
way the words on your wagons, 'Try Hayden's First,' have
struck me. I well remember the first time I ever , saw '
these words. They' struck me as a most attractive, yet
wholly modest trade mark. I am writing this to you for '
the reason that I have recently been impressed with the
idea that this trade mark is entirely characteristic of Hay.
den's methods. Lately, I have been reading advertisements
by merchants in other sections of the country and these
have been filled with thrusts, veiled and unveiled, at one
another Hayden's advertisements have provided a model
in this respect. I have tried to draw out several of your
department heads and clerks in comments upon the prices
and conduct of other houses. Invariably, I have met with
either silence or the explanation that every house must
.adopt its own plan and fix, its own prices."
. Hayden's gives cordial thanks to the writer of this
letter. It, is particularly acceptable for the reason that it '
gives us occasion to say that the trade motto, "Try Hay
; den's First," grew out of the very spirit which our old
customer has so well described. It has seemed to be the
pleasure t)f every one connected with Hayden's to culti
vate that spirit and it is very gratifying to learn that h
has met with appreciation. '..
Adopting the cash plan for the benefit, of its cus-'
tomers, evejnore than for its own convenience, Hayden's
has avoided everything that would tend to encourage reck
less or unnecessary buying. That its prices are fixed at a
most attractive figure even at times that might appear as
crises to some other merchant is proved by the business Hay.
den's is doing today. That fact is further indicated by the
statement which I am able to make on my personal respon
sibility that Hayden's could not make a 10 per cent cut
from its normal cash plan prices without a positive loss.
Hayden's can, however, maintain those prices and obtain
1 the profit necessary for a successful business. - '
We do not say, "Come here and buy."
'J- We do say, "Come here and look."
That is the meaning of "Try Hayden's First."
As a result, people are looking and buying thorough-'
ly satisfied with the big advantages of the cash planS

Do Things Appear to WbM
Around When We Are Dizzy?
(Copyright, 1920. By The Wheeler
Inasmuch as things appear to
be going around in a circle when
we are dizzy but our common
sense tells us that they must be
stationary, as always, it would
seem that Ihe fault lies in our
eyes. But it really lies in,- or
near, the, ear an organ which,
apparently has nothing to do
with the sight or feeling.
Close to the ear, however, i
located the little organ which
gives us our power of balance,
permits us to walk upright with
out, tottering and when .properly;,
trained, to assume postures which
are distinctly outside the regular
routine of our daily lives. Ec
centric dancers, acrobats, ath
letes and others have- uncon
sciously trained this "balance
wheel" until they can lo strange
things without, as we say, "los-
ing their balance." When we
spin around rapidly, this delicate 1
mechanism is disturbed or
thrown just a littleNtut, of gear, j
causing the eyes to move inde
pendently of each other and to.
send different impressions to the
brain. This causes the, spinning
effect which we know as "diz
ziness," persisting for a longer
or shorter period -of -time, de
pendent upon the rapidity and
length of time for which one has
revolved. . : .
