Bro LYTLE was beloved by everyone that knew him. He was an example of piety. The same religion that he found in OH was his abundant support in IL. Humility was a continual characteristic of his life. He loved the church and gave of his means to the support of the gospel. Has been, for a number of years, a constant subscriber to the Central Christian Advocate, which he loved to peruse and especially those columns that stated the progress of Methodism over our country. In his public exercise he seemed to have the cause of Christ at heart, and labored for the welfare of his fellow man, in presenting sound doctrine and exhorting winners to turn to God and live. Yet God, in his providence saw proper to remove him from the church militant, which sustains his love to the church triumphant above. He leaves a family of 8 children and a companion, besides numerous friends to mourn their loss. He lived in peace, enjoyed the favor of God and died in the triumphs of the gospel.

The passing of Edward Lytle, 57, who died suddenly Sunday night, revived memories of early bicycle days in Omaha. He is credited with riding the first wheel to appear on the streets of the city about 1890. Lytle was interested with A. H. Perrigo in starting the first bicycle shop in Omaha and the first vehicle they received was one of the high wheel type. Lytle appeared in the business district mounted above the fifty-six-inch large wheel, to the admiration of the populace, old timers say.
Later he had a part in promoting bicycle races in the old auditorium at Fourteenth and Capitol avenue and was one of those who built the Coliseum at Twentieth and Willis avenue, now the home of Ak-Sar-Ben, but then erected for the bicycle races that were the rage in sport.
