succeeded In landing another factory
for the city. This was made certain
today when Mr. Schutz of Glenwood.
Ia., who has been In active negotia

sometime past, arrived In the city and
announced positively that he would
come here and open his factory and
that, too, at once. The new factory
will be devoted to the manufacture
of men's cotton gloves and mittens
and it will be located either in the
building next door to the Smith fac
tory or in the brick residence of the
late Dr. Black In the north part of
the city, the exact location not being
determined at the hour of going to
press. One thing Is sure, however,
and that la that Plattsmouth has
added another factory to its string
and President Falter Is Justly elated
at the success which is attending the
commercial club's efforts. The new
factory will fill a long felt want In
the city and the vicinity and, as it
is in the immediate neighborhood
of the big Omaha Jobbing houses
there will be a splendid market for
all It can produce. It will employ
twelve men at the start and that Is
not bad for that kind of work, it
means twelve more families employed
