A Rare Treat

Something good at the Opera House Saturday night, September 28th. Following the so called wild west show that was in town recently, Manager Walling has gone to the trouble and expense of securing for his patrons a true representation of what a real Wild West Show is. To-night he will exhibit 3000 feet of film depicting in vivid colors and with startling accuracy the various scenes of a camp round-up at Cheyenne, Wyoming, which was reviewed and participated in by ex-President Roosevelt. Nothing short of the real thing can bring so vividly before an audience the stirring scenes of the races and sports that always accompany a big round-up. Manager Walling is alive to all the possibilities of such a gathering, and is to be congratulated on having secured one of the best films that has ever been shown in Lompoc.

Go to the Opera House to-night and enjoy the real thing, while Walling’s orchestra discourses music such as you seldom hear outside of the great cities.

W.C. Tyrrell Dies In Iowa Summer Home At Age Of 71 Years

Local Capitalist And Civic Leader’s FuneralTo Be Held Monday And Body Placed In Tyrrell Mausoleum Here

William Casper Tyrrell, member of a prominent Beaumont family, and director of the Tyrrell Trust, died at his summer home in Belmond, Ia., at 11:45 p.m. Thursday after an illness of about 10 days.

Mr. Tyrrell, as was his custom each summer, went to Belmond about six weeks ago. Ten days ago he suffered a slight stroke, and was believed to be recovering satisfactorily from this when he was stricken with pneumonia from which he died.

A native of Iowa, Mr. Tyrrell always maintained a special affection for his native state. He returned each summer to spend several months. He had maintained his home here, however, for the most part since 1901 when he came to this city with his parents.

His father, the last Capt. W.C. Tyrrell, who died here in 1924 was one of the most prominent leaders in early development of this area. He was identified with the oil development here, and was active in much of the business development of this area.
