The Plattsmouth Commercial Club Talks to the Public on the Situation
The M. E. Smith shirt factory is in immediate need of twenty five girls who wish to become op
erators on machines for the making of shirts, button-holes, and sewing on buttons. These positions
are open to any who are willing to make the trial, and will pay good wages when the work is once
To become a successful operator along this line, involves a few months of studious apprenticeship,
and like any other position, will pay lucrative wages only after such apprenticeship has been served.
Once mastered, a machine will earn from $5 to $15 per week, according to the speed and skill of the op
erator. Many girls in the Main factory at Omaha are earning from $12 to $18 per week. The op
portunity to learn and improve is unlimited. Patience and perseverance with reasonable ability can
make the wages remunerative beyond the average position, while close application and especial adapt
ability will make the "pay envelope" exceed that of any position outside of the professions.
The work cannot be learned in a day, a week or a month, and those w ho expect it, are sure to be
disappointed. To those who are willing to try out, there is abundant opportunity to "make good".
The hours of work are from 7:30 to 5:30, with half-hour noon. During the winter months the fac
tory closes at 4:00 on Saturdays, and during the summer at noon on Saturday. ;
The factory room is light, comfortable, easy of access and proud eil with conveniences for the op
erators. The forelady, Miss Schnccfus, is most agreeable and considerate, enjoying the respect and
cheerful co-operation of the sixty operators now under her training. She will be glad to meet any
who care to talk over the work, with a view to make an application. She can be found at the
factory any time during working hours.
The Commercial Club thinks that it will not be necessary to advertise outside of Plattsmouth
and vicinity in order to,fill this present demand, and by this statement is endeavoring to make the
.matter more clearly understood if possible. They urge all who may desire to secure employment,
to visit the factory and allow the forelady to explain the matter more fully. -
It is not the purpose of the Commercial Club to try and induce any to leave their present employ
ment in order to take up this work.as there are doubtless enough unemployed in the city and immediate
locality, who, if they were rightly informed, would be glad for such an opportunity.
The public generally can be of much assistance in caring for this new industry, and if any reader
of this article should know of persons who really belong in Plattsmouth, but who have been compelled
to leave the city in search of employment, you are requested to write them of the present opportunity
in the Smith factory. v

Census Bureau Offers Some In
formation to Those Interested.
Washington, D. C, March 12, 1910
Inquiries have been made of the Cen
sus Bureau whether farm products
should be valued by fanners, in reply
ing to census enumerators, at the gen
eral wholesale priees or at the uetuul
prices obtained by the producer. It
was pointed out by the inquirers
that many farmers sell a proportion
of their eggs for breeding, at much
higher than the regular price. Others
sell part or all of their milk, butter
and cream, at retail, (uitc a number
sell pure-bred live-stock of various
kinds at more or less fancy prices.
The Bureau's correspondents are of the
opinion that if sales are quoted in this
way in the census reports, the results
might be somewhat uncertain as a
basis for the average market prices.
Responding to t hose inquiries, Cen
uss Director Durand states that in
forming its inquiries and instructions
with reference to the value of domestic
animals and fowls, the Census Bureau
must nesecsarily follow the lines laid
down in the law governing its action.
That law requires the Bureau to ascer
tain the number and value of animals
and fowls. The value sought is not
particular class of animals or fowls,
but of all animals and fowls' It is
the amount at which the animals and
fowls can be sold. Good pure-blood
animals will sell for more, and thus
have a greater value, than the poor
animals. Where there are many pure
blooded, the average will be higher
than where the opposite condition of af
fairs prevails, but, as a matter of fact,
the pyure-blooded animals are so thor
oughly distributed that they leave
no appreciable influence upon the av
erage published by the Twelfth Gen
sua, except in tho sace of young colU
ot the Mate of New Jersey. ,
No appreciable influence on the ar
crage price or value of eggs, milk or
butter is observed in consequence of
the practice mentioned by the in
quirers. The high-priced eggs, milk
butter, etc., are found about as much
in one part of the country as in another. .
The average which tho census will
publish is not that of a particular
class of eggs, but of all eggs produced.
It is the same for all animals, fowl
and animal products. The relative
number and value of the animals and
products to which specific attention
has been called does not exert, for tho
country as a whole or for many of the
states, an influence sufficient to make
the average published by the census
materially different from the average
Chicago Capitalist Here.
(From Saturday's Dally)
William S. Rector, a moneyed man
from the Windy City and specia1
representative of the La Salle Street
National Bank and the La Salle Street
Trust Company was in the city for a
few hours today, looking up a few mat
ters of capital. Mr. Rector was a
very interesting man to converse
with and he seemed to be very favor
ably impressed with what he saw of
Plattsmouth. He was an old chum
of Mr. Dovey when the gentlemen
were 111 their school boy days, but they
had not seen each other for years.
Their meeting was an enjoyable one
when they called back their doings of
ie olden times.
Refitting Private Car.
The private car of Superintendent
Young of the Burlington is in the lo-
-al yards being completely overhauled
and repaired. It was pulled into
the shops a short time ago, looking
more like a junk pile than a road of
ficial's car, it having figured rather
prominently in a bad wreck near
Ravcna, and laid for sonic time on
its side in the ditch. It is now taking
on the appearance of an up-to-date
hotel with all the modem conveniences
that could lie put into a living room'
The car is divided into the private
office, a living room, dining room
kitchen and reporters room, with gas
electricity and steam for heating and
light ing. The fixtures are all of cherry
mahogany and oxidized brass.
The superintendent, while travel
ing through the country and in at
tending to his business matters, sel
dom has to leave his car, so conven
ient is the arrangement of it.
Fine Club House for Lincoln.
The directors of the Commercial
club at Lincoln have recently adopted
the plans submitted by architect
George A. Berlinphof for a four story
Commercial Club bui'ding. The new
bui'ding will be erected at the cost
of SS.OOO on the lots lately purchased
by the club on the corner of Eleventh

paid. The building will have a front
age of seventy-one feet on Klcvcnth
and 10O feet on P street, with a wing
of half that sie exteding back on tin
lot next to the corner, so as to enclose
the Windsor annex on two sides. The
firot floor will be fitted up for retail
mercantile purposes, to be leased to
one occupant if desired. The second
floor will be occupied by the main
suite of the Commercial Club's rooms,
including the billiard room, while the
third floor will contain the dining
room, culinary service and cloak room.
The fourth floor will not cover the
whole building, but will form a bal
cony above the dining room, w ith four
private dining suites for small parties,
In its exterior appearance, the club
house will present straight lines and
corners for the general effect, set off
by outside balconies, ornamental pil
asters, lamps and windows. The en
trance will be. on Eleventh at the
north west corner.
Hurry at the Right Time.
At the Parmele Theater last evening
it was the cause of considerable an
noyance to many of the theater goers
to note the uneasiness of the audience
towards the close of the last act.
A gootl deal of the strong effect of the
closing scene was entirely lost by the
disturbance a number of people made
in truying to be the "first ones out."
If some of those dcodIc would show
that tendency to hurry before the cur
tain was raised instead of bolting for
the door before the curtain is dronned
people who are really interested would
not be compelled to loose out on some
of the good parts of a play'

Grew Company Pleases.
(From Saturday's Daily)
The William Grew Company scored
the hit of the season last evening in
the four act play of old England, Nell
Gwynne. 1 he troupe has been great
ly strengthened since its last appear
ance in the city by a number of very
capable actors playing the minor parts.
which brings the caste up to more
than double its former size.
The show was put on before a well
filled and appreciative hoiino, which
called the actors forth many times
by the hearty applause. The leading
lady, Miss Pcttes, in the role of Nell
Gwynne, around whom the center of
the simple story was written, seemed
especially strong and well fitted for her
The play was of the dramatic type,
presenting the old English life in the
time of Charles II. It well brought
the absolute powers cf life and death
that weie held in the hands of the mon
arclis in those days, but it show ed how
even important matter., of state could
be swayed by a simple but talented
orange girl of the low class of peas
ants. The part of Charles II was well
filled by William Grew, portraying
the part of lover at first sight. The
King, by chance, meeting Nell, as an
urchin on the streets, was attracted
by her talent, and through his favor,
is in u short time made the theatrical
star of London. By her quick action,
she saves Fairfax, her secret lover
from his death on the block and re
stores to him his betrothed, at the
same time winning the absolute faith
and confidence of the Ruler.
The company will present at it's
next weekly appearance, the popular
comedy, "Is Marriage a Failure."
