"Kunnel" Bates has not yet introduced
a bill providing for a bounty on gophers
and groundhogs, and when it is con
sidered that 050 bills hnve been intro

abilities are that no legislation along
these lines will be accomplished at this
session. However, notice to the effect
that gopher scalps would be taken on
subscription might afford the Courier
man temporary relief, though as a
general proposition we are opposed to
private citizens being compelled to do
that which is manifestly the duty of the

A good number of Piattsmouth enter
prising business men met at the Com
mercial Club room in Coates Hall last
evening at 8 o'clock, it being the regu
lar meeting night of the club. Reports
were had from various committees, and

tion here. The following persons were
elected as a board of directors: George
E. Dovey, F. E. Schlater, A. L. Tidd,
C. C. Parmele, Louis Lorenz, H. A.
Schneider and Phillip Phierolf. The

Mr. John Steinhart, a leading spirit in
business circles and Commercial Club
work delivered a most excellent address
to the local club. He told vividly of
his experience in Commercial Club
work in Nebraska City. He said they
had repeatedly organized Commercial
Clubs in Nebraska City and the Club
would live for a time and thon die. They
would re-organize and try over again
and this had been done up till three
years ago. When three years ago they
organized a Commercial Club on a busi
ness basis and incorporated with a cap
ital stock of $25,000. that they issued
1,000 shares of $25.00each, which shares
were taken by the business men, farm
ers and others interested in the well
fare of Nebraska City. That in three
years Nebraska City had located a num
ber of small factories, one being a shirt
factory, another being an over all fac
tory, another being a vinegar factory.
That they had located a wholesale pro
duce house, that they had organized a
local company and bought the old Argo
Starch works and were arranging to
put in an alfalfa meal mill and that they
had bought 45 acres of land for dark
purposes and were arranging the park.
That this had been accomplished at the
expenditure by the Commercial Club of
probubly less than $5,000 in the three
years. Mr. Steinhart said that the pol

Herman Herold Meet3 Death in
Peculiar Manner Yester
Herman Herold, while engaged in
cutting down a tree, about 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon met with an acci
dent which resulted in his death a few
hours later. When the tree commenced
to fall, he attempted to get out of the
way, and owing to the slippery condi
tion of the ground he lost his footing
and was pinioned underneath it. He
died from internal injuries.
He was born in Germany in 1836, and
in his youth came to this country. He
was married to Martha Balsinger, of
St. Joseph, Missouri. Mr. and Mrs.
Herold have lived the greater portion
of tho time in this city. Ho left sur
viving him, a widow and four children,
Mrs..Clara Skinner, of Lincoln, Otto
Heroll, Mrs. Minnie Fitt, and Freda
Herold, of this city. Mr. Herold was
a kind husband and father, and was
respected by all who knew hi.n. The
bereaved family have the sympathy of
their many friends.
Funeral services will be held at the
residence Saturday, and will be conduc
ted by Canon H. B. Burgess. Inter
ment will occur at Oak Hill cemetery.
