Indications point to the fact that King Alphonso has added a matrimonial bureau to his cabinet. John Steinhart says pay no atten tion to the knocker, go right ahead and do do business. Knockers are every where, and always will be. The speaker at the commercial club Tuesday said to make use of the energy of the young men. They may make some mistakes, but keep them at it. THE Kansas legislature proposes to keep pegging away until a law is iramed that will "prohibit." And that they are making progress is attested by the report that 2,000 drug stores are for sale in that state. Give you words of praise to the liv ing, -they can do no possible good to the dead, and they may mean renewed effort on the part of some poor strug gling mortal who is in need of a kind word in his daily battle with the cares of life. Guess the Louisville Courier man would better have his lawn paved. "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 duced and only two passed, the prob 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 commonwealth.

Mr. Hughes, the traveling passenger agent of the Missouri Pacific Railway Company, met the committee from the Commercial club in this city Wednes- LOTS OF ENTHUSIASM ' t4:"H":"x" Commercial Club Elects a Board of Directors and Listens to Fine Address. J. P. Falter, President. R. B. Windham, Vice-President. E. 11. Wescott, Secretary. Ray Patterson, Treasurer. 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 the secretary reported a party desiring to open a hospital in Piattsmouth and several smaller industrier seeking loca 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 above gentlemen together with the of ficers constitute the board of directors for the purpose of transacting business for the Commercial Club. 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 icy of the Commercial Club of his city I X ?
