Manager Quinn of the News-Herald
Publishing Company, is feeling im
mensely good this week as he ex
pects to blossom out New Year's Day
with u new clean shirt, the product
of the new factory at this place.
Not only is the garment a new one,

put out by the factory.
The representative of the News

and w ill always remember the factory
long after the garment lias passed
to some poor print who may someday
come along nnd want something to
protect him from the chilling blasts
Miss Wohlfert, the efficient fore
woman oi the tactory informed the
News representative that the demand
for the product of this factory was
so great t hat they had been compelled
to put in an additional 25 machines
during the past week. The work under
Miss Wohlfert is progressing finely.
She evidently understands the bus
iness nnd knows how to get results
from the operators, which means
much to the success of the business.
The factory is going to be a great
thing for Plattsmouth, nnd it was a
wise move in the part of the commer

There are more coming, and the time
is not far distant when Plattsmouth
will be known over the state as the

of the country. No town is better
situated for business of this kind than
