Commercial Club Makes a Good Move by Urging Citizens to Use
Plattsmcuth Made Gccds Whenever Possible.
The meeting of the commercial
club last evening at Coates' hall was
better attended than usual, there be-1
Ing some fifty members present. The
expected meeting with Dr. Todd of
Omaha did not take place, he failing
to show up although officers of the
organization had tried to get in touch
with him all day.
The principal business of the ses
sion was that of discussing the best
method of booming home made ci
gars, John Nemetz being the leader
In advocating this. It was urged that
a petition should be circulated ask
ing users of cigars to use Platts
mouth made goods wherever possible
and asking the merchants to patron
ize the local factories.
The discussion developed that
everyone present favored this and a
committee headed by John Nemetz
was seleceted to handle the matter
and secure such action by the local
merchants and users as they could.
In connection with this John Bajeck
of the firm of Ptak & Bajeck who
urged upon the meeting the advantage
which it was to Plattsmouth to use
local cigars and he expressed the be
lief that the increased patronage re
sulted from the more extended use
of local cigars would lend employ
ment to at least ten more cigar mak
ers. He also expressed the belief that
not more than cne half of all the
igars used in the city were home
Another important matter up be
fore the club was the improvement
of the ferry road. This matter was
up last fall and nothing tangible came
of it so thaj there was no trade over
the ice from Iowa this winter. It is
proposed now to get it in shape for
next spring and summer. James Ault
was reported as circulating a petition
to the county commissioners to im
prove the road.
. A committee which had charge of
the coasting carnival reported that
they had expended all money in their
hands save 7.35, which was turned
into the club funds. No statement of
how the money was spent accom
panied the report for publication.
The club also decided to advertise
the resources of the city one year
II MOST PLEAS-
Friends Assist G. B. Gould and
Wife to Celebrate Their Fifth
Yesterday was the fifth wedding an
nlversary of Mr. and Mrs. G. O. Gould
and their friends to the number of a
dozen remembered them on the oc
casion with a surprise party at their
rooms in the Hotel Riley. The party
assembled at the totel, practically all
the members being residents of the
hostelry, and descended upon the
rooms of Mr. and Mrs. Gould in a
body taking these excellent people
quite by surprise although they quick
ly recovered and proceeded to make
the guests at home. Tables were pro
Tided and the evening was most pleas
antly spent in progressive dominoes,
a large bouquet of orange blossoms
and ferns being provided for the win
ner of the games. Frank Gobelman
proved to be the best player and car
ried off the emblem of superiority.
Following this refreshments were
served in the dining hall of the hotel
which had been handsomely decorated
for the occasion. The colors chosen
were orange and green, tho table de

It was also decided to have a com
mittee from the club make a visit
to the Burlington shops and see the
condition of matters there since the
accession of the present officials.
The slogan "See Plattsmouth Suc
ceed" was reported to the club from
the committee of the directors and
enthusiastically received. It was de
cided to urge the use of the slogan
In every conceivable way by the mer
chants, business men and citizens gen
erally. The suggestions of the Jour
nal in last night's issue were all re
peated by members present.
A number of business men agreed
to give special prizes for the part
ies selling the greatest number of
slogan buttons, among them being a
cash prize of $5 by George Blackston
Irving the lecturer to defray the ex
penses of whose lecture the buttons
are being sold. A number of the
prizes offered are excellent and well
worth striving for. The award will be
made by the president, secretary and
treasurer of the club.
It was decided to change the night
of the club meeting so as, not to con
flict with tho meeting of several large
lodges in the city and It was decided
to meet hereafter on the third Thurs
day night In each month. The meet
ings will commence promptly at eight
o'clock even if there is only the presi
dent and secretary there.
This constituted the bulk of the
business done after which the meet
ing adjourned. In connection with
the club affairs It has been suggested
that it would be well to have a state
ment showing how the money collect
ed by the club had been spent and
who received it. It is understood a
number of the members and officers
of the club favor this idea and it
doubtless will be done shortly.
The old directors were re-elected
for another year, their names being
reported to the club for ratification

hour before the pleasant gathering

retired to their rooms. The assembl

Help Build Up One of the Lead

In the report of the meeting of the
commercial dub appears a statement
regarding the appointment of a com
mittee to see the cigar users and the
merchants who sell them, and try
and obtain assurances of support for
the local factories. The committee
headed by John Nemetz, a hustling
merchant, got busy this morning and
were on the street early In the inter

highly encouraged by the results pf
their work as far as they had gone

industry in this city is next to the
Burlington shops, the largest in town.
This is what the Journal believes and
It believes the figures would bear out

everyone for himself to encourage the
Increase of the factories. They em

and his committee find encourage

can soon record a large Increase in

should smoke Plattsmouth cigars but
they should make their excellent
qualities acquainted abroad so that
they may sell in all parts of the coun

The Funeral Sermon Preached
by Rev. W. O. Harell and In
, terrment Made at Eight
Mile Grove Cemetery.
The funeral of the late Samuel
Barker which was to have been hold
on Tuesday, January 4, 1910, was
postponed until the following day on
account of the heavy storm which
raged on the date originally set.
When Wednesday dawned It was
found to be one of the coldest days
of the winter and It was decided to
hold the funeral from the residenco of
his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Wetenkamp
Instead of from the Eight Mile Grove
church as originally Intended.
In the house, where he had breath
ed his last and entered into the long
sleep, there was assembled a large
number of friends gathered to pay a
last tribute to the sterling worth of
this most excellent and respected citi
zen. His large family of children
wor all present at the obsequies save
two who were unable to attend.
The funeral sermon was preached
by Rev. W. O. Harell, pastor of the
Methodist church at Mynard and
Eight Mile Grove who had attended'
the deceased during the last illness,
and It was an eloquent and worthy
tribute of praise to his many rare
qualities. The testimony of the pastor
was that Ite peace which came to the
deceasrd during his final Illness was
born of his faith in Christ and that
he went to rest secure in his hope
of a blessed awakening.
Following the services at the house
the body was laid to rest In the Eight
Mile Grove cemetery, a large number
of sorrowing friends forming a cor
tege to the grave despite the severe
In their loss of a most kind and
loving father the sorrowing children
have the sweet consolation of know
ing that the sympathy of a wide
circle of friends Is theirs and that
their bereavement is felt as that of
each of all who had known this good
man in his lifetime.

Many Cathartics Tend to Cuiino In

If you are subject to constipation,
you should avoid strong drugs and

they come In contact.
We honestly believe that we have
the best constipation treatment ever
devised. Our faith In it is so strong

Fred Ruhge, aged 26 and Miss Ron
Telde, both of Berlin, came to th
city yesterday afternoon and tried to
secure a marriage license from John,
C. Miller, clerk of the county court,
assuring Mr. Miller that the father of
the girl, Henry Telde had consented
to the marriage. Mr. Miller was not
satisfied and besides he wanted tho
consent In writing, so ho located tha
father at a sale In that precinct, via
phone, and he would not at first be
lieve that tho daughter was away
from Inline. Ho would not consent.
Tho girl was called to the phone and
talked to the father some time, but
they readied no agreement. Th
father asked Mr. Miller to hold the
couple until he ould come to the-
city, but was referred to Sheriff Fish
er, as Mr. Miller hnd no license at
law, to hold them. Whilo the father .
was securing the sheriff the couple
left the court house and went to th
depot saying they were going back
home. At the depot they boarded tb
freight train and it pulled out tor
Auburn just before Deputy Flahtr
reached the station. The officers at
Auburn were asked to hold the coupl
which they did. The father went dowa
there last night, secured the dauga-
ter and took her home and refused
to prosecute the young man. Th
couple vow they will get married yet
and will In some way outwit the girl
father. Both are well known youasT
people pf that precinct and have beta
keeping company for some time.
