Fascinating Police Wanted Ad From 1888

$100 reward for the arrest of this mild mannered-looking criminal. I want to know if they caught him!

“Gambles and is fond of comic opera…”
“Uses morphine and carries Hypodermic Syringe…”
“Is ruptured and wears a truss…”

They had so much information on Mr. Klinz, the scoundrel bookkeeper!

$100 was a lot of money in 1888, but then, so was $1,000.

Maybe he made it back to Germany, I hope so.

Below are some trusses from the time period.
23 — so young to be herniated.
