Public Building Delayid.

be longer. There is a suspicion that

Free Employment Bureau.
Under the statutes the Deputy Com
missioner of the Bureau of Labor and
Industrial Statistics is made manager
of a free employment bureau, where
applicants for positions may file appli
cations and where those wanting help
may make the fact known. The em
ployment bureau is thus made a sort of
industrial clearing house. Unfortunate
ly, the legislature has never made
adequate provision for the maintenance
of this emiloyment. bureau, and it has
never been pushed as it should be. De
puty Commissioner Maupin has hopes,
however, of securing the necessary sup
port. In the meantime, he suggests
that Nebraska farmers who may be
desirous of employing farm help com
municate with him, as he is in receipt
of numerous inquiries from men who
want to secure employment on farms
The service is absolutely free, except
that those writing should enclose stamp
for reply. Address all communications
to the Bureau of Labor and Industrial
Statistics, Lincoln, Nebraska.
The associated press says, that re
duccd prices were largely the cause of
the fall of $307,000,000 in value of im
ports and $167,000,000 in exports in the
foreign trade of the United States dur
ing 1908, according to a report made by
the bureau of statistics of the depart
ment of commerce and labor.
It is shown that while the value of
cotton exported ir 1908 was $431,000,000,
against $470,000,000 in 1907, there was
an increase of 186,000,000 pounds in
quantity. Raw silk imports last year
: were valued at $64,250,000, as against
! $71,750,000 in preceding year, yet the
j quantity increased by 3,000,000 pounds.
Wool imports fell 40 per cent in value,
but only 24 per cent in quantity.
Peter Cveland in the City.
Peter Eveland one of the progressive
Republicans of Elmwood precinct was
in the city Monday evening on business
and spent the night. Mr. Eveland is a
stockholder of the Plattsmouth Tele,
phone company and came down to at
tend the annual meeting. He cast his
first vote for president of the United
States when he was 17 years old and
has been voting that way ever since.
The News-Herald was glad to regis
ter Mr Eveland among its list of readers.
Merchants Waking Up.
One of these days, and the time is
not far distant, every city and town in
the United States will have one or more
stores in which only nationally adver
tised goods are sold. Think of the pull
on trade such stores, and especially
those that are established first, will
have over the others! General adver
tisers are spending hundreds of thou
sands of dollars each year to make the
public familiar with their products, and
the retailers who handle them are get
ting the bent-fit of the publicity. The
advantage of having newspapers, mag
azines, billboards and other mediums
working to sell their goods without a
cent of expense to them is bo great
that the wonder is that all merchants
have not discovered it long ago.
F. A. Harman, a merchant of Lima,
Ohio, who advertises that he sells na
tionally advertised articles, finds that
the policy not only pays well, but that
it gives his store a prestige that it
would not otherwise have. -Printers

Wise Talks by the OHice Boy j:
You can take my word for it whatever
a fellow hopes to be, he will be, unless he
gets on the wrong car. Whenever I hear
one those worldly wise chaps using
expression, "Where do I get off?
always feel like edging up and saying,
"Put him off at Plattsmouth because he
will then know just where he is going to
get off and we will all know where he is
getting off. We know that he will get
off better than he expected for the
simple reason ,that we are primed
the muzzle with new goods and we don't
care how soon the people know it. Times are improving,
business is improving, people are imtroving, everything
is improving except the weather and you can't improve
that because it isn't made to be bossed. Have you tried
our Plattsmouth brand of M & J coffee? Then you can't
go wrong on.
