M. E. Smith Factory In this City
Is a Busy Place
FIFTY-TWO GIRLS ARE

Operatives Quickly Learn Details
Of New Work.
A visit to the M. E. Smith shirt
factory disclosed the interesting fact
that we have in our midst a veritable
hive of industry. Miss Wohlfert, the
accomplished forewoman informed
the Daily News man that she had
fifty-two gfrls at work and could
easily get more if she had the machines
and that out of the number of girls
employed only three have been found
wanting insofar as they would prob
ably never be able to make good.
This speaks well for Plattsmouth
Miss Wohlfert reports that the
machinery is working smoothly and
that the entire business is now run
ning to her perfect satisfaction
It is interesting to watch the busy
girls as they energetically and more
or less intelligently accomplish the
work laid out for them. The electric
machines run with the speed neces
sary to do the work with dispatch.but
at the same time not too fast for the
workers who are not yet proficient
in their duties.
In the matter of the guardianship

to hov cause why the sale should

FAIRMONT WON THE
BASKET BALL GAME
Boys Irom that City Play Rings
Around Our Tosscrs.
Prof. Brooks and his band of bas
ket ball tosscrs from the Fairmont
high school came to town last Sat
usday and just simply did things to
the Harrisonites. It was too bad.
Hut the fact stands out as bold as a
wat on a man's nose that our boys were
ourplayed, outclassed, and pointed out
at every stage of the- game.
Our boys put up a good game and
would have won under ordinary cir
cumstances, but the Brookitcs put
up a better game. They had three
fellows who could throw the ball into
the basket from any position, and on
account of being taller and heavier
than the Plattsmouth bunch they
very frequently used their beef and tall
ness to advantage. Hut there is no
anguish in the camp of the Platts
mouth high school; as far as we have
been able to learn. The rooting of the
supporters of the local team was fine
and is deserving of special mention
and encouragement. It did not matter
if the team was behind, the root:::':
was as fast and furious as though the
home team had been playing all
around the visitors.

but the editor, Harry Craves, does
not at this writing know in just what
shape they are in.
What makes the fire a bad one for
the business houses burned is the fact
that' there are no empty buildings
in the town sufficient to house the
places which have been put out of
business. The Ledger has an option
on about the only empty room in
the town, and will probably move in
this afternoon. Whether he will b:
able to get out a paper or not this week
will depend upon the condition he
finds his material in when he comes to
The total loss is placed at $12,000,
with very little insurance. As the town
had no fire protection about all the
citizens could do was to remove the
goods within the buildings and warch
