The Nounan community was shock
ed last Sunday morning when the
news was spread of the sudden death
of Charles Bartschi, one of the best
known men of Bear Lake county,
death occurring during the early
bourB of Sunday, and heart failure
being the cause of death. The exact
time of the death of Mr. Bartsefcfr-ts"
unknown, because he was found ln
bed when the other members of the
family went to his room that morn
ing. Mr. Bartschl apparently passed
away without struggle when his
heart failed to function.
Mr. Bartschi was regarded as be
ing a man in good health, and ap
peared as Buch, but he suffered a
stroke of heart trouble about a year
ago following a spasmodic attack of
inflamatory rheumatism. Since that
first attack of trouble with his heart
he has been more or less 111 as a re
sult of it.
Charles Bartschl was born ln Swit
zerland on August 12th 1869. He
left his nature land when eleven
years old, coming to America and
the Intermountain country. He had
been a resident of Bear Lake county
almost continuously since that time.
Thirty years ago he married Bertha
Wyler, also a native of Switzerland,
and to that union ten children have
been born, two of whom preceded
Mr. Bartschl in death.
For fifteen years Mr. Bartschl
served as superintendent of the Sun
day school of the L. D. S. church ln
his community, giving up that po
sition only to accept a more respon
sible calling ln the church, when, a
few years ago he was appointed first
counselor ln the Nounan bishopric,
which position he held at the time of
his death. He has also been prom
inently Identified ln other public af
fairs, and was a man who was loved
by all who knew him.
Mr. Bartschl Is survived by two
brothers and two sisters, Fred Bart
schi of Georgetown, John Bartschl
of Providence, Utah, Mrs. Rose
Schenk of Providence and Mrs. Chris
Tueller of Montpelier, a widow, Mrs.
Charles Bartschl, and the following
children: Mrs. LeRoy Hoff, George
town; Charles W., Wyler F., Le
grande H., Wllford W., Golden S.,
Darei P., Rulon Bartschl and Rachel
Bartschl an adopted daughter, all of
Nounan. Also six grandchildren.

Bear Lake County is now
confronted by a situation that
seldom arises in communities,
and wo sincerely trust that all
selfish motives will be brushed
aside for the general good of
Bear Lake county. The state
highway department has now
available out of a bond issue,
the sum of $27,514.50 for Bear
Lake County. In the course of
'twenty years this money must
j>e paid back by this county in
the redemption of that portion
of the $2,000,000 bond issue
floated by the state under an
act of the last legislature. If
we do not avail ourselves of
this money some other county
will get it, and we will bo re
sponsible for the payment to
the state just the same.
In order to get this money
from the state, the law' plainly
states that the county must
match the money two dollars
to one. That means that Bear
Lake County must raise by a
bond issue $55,029.00, making
a total of $82,543.50 to spend
on the highways of this county.
On top of this the federal gov
ernment will match both the
state and county -money dollar
for dollar. Of this sum, which
is $82,543.50, the sum of $50,
000.00 is now available, and
the balance of $32,543.50 will
be available at a later date.
That gives us a grand total
of $132,543.50 that we may se
cure for Bear Lake County
roads this year if we vote for
bonds, if the county commis
