The parties who are talking of estab lishing a factory for the manufacture of tine organ cases, etc. in the city are still figuring upon a suitable location. The organizers have again investigat ed the Dehren's property and if a suita able and reasonable figure is demanded it is more than probable the factory will be located there. The Ixiui'EXi) kxt is always glad to chronicle any ad vancement that will help the manufac turing or commercial interests of this city, and it feels that some effort should be made to advance this branch of in dustry. Such a factory as that which it is now proposed to establish here, would be a benefit to this town and county. And the business men and all who have one spark of philanthropic feeling in their natures, or any desire to see the city grow and prosper and ultimately take its place among the thriving, stable, and prosperous business towns of the West should put their shoulder to the wheel and help m every way, within their power to start and main tain such a manufacturing industry as this. Factories bring skilled mechanics into our midst. Skilled mechanics earn good wages and in living leave a good ly proportion of their earnings in the town, the city or the county in which they make their earnings. Then again there are children grow ing up here who in order to fight the battle of life in the future must learn some trade or profession; learn to do something. With factories in our midst where skilled mechanics are employed, a good opportunity is offered whereby some of the rising generation may be instructed in various useful mechanical arts, and in so learning be guaranteed the ground work upon -which they may in years to come, rely for their living and their prosperity This is the basis upon which the 1mkim:xim:xt says to its readers foster and support the mer cantile and manufacturing interests of the city ot Plymouth, offer inducements for such industries to locate here and stay here, and to these factories, which are here extend the same, support and encouragement as you would to any in terest or company desiring to locate here. Citizens should never loose sight of the fact, that in the building up and maintainance of factories where skilled mechanics, earn the proportionate pay which the various labor unions today demand, is the ultimate success and future of the city in which they live. Farm Life. There is no life so enviable or enjoy able as the life of a farmer. He has nothing to do but enjoy himself from January to December, from sunrise to sunset, grow rich and fat and kick like a fat steer. When the blizzards of winter send in their cards, the farmer can draw his chair up to the stove, put his feet in the oven, and spend the day reading his weekly country paper and church orgnn. and other like religious reading. His occupation is only disturbed when he adjourns to the table and feasts on mince pie, saur kraut and apple dump lings. There is much of error in this general opinion of the ease of the farm er takes to himself. One who has had any experience in farming will tell how the farmer crawls out of bed four hours before daylight, softens his boots with a hammer and commences the days work with a lant ern in one hand and a bucket of frozen slop in the other. He has from one to a thousand hogs which shovel their snouts in his face and tip the bucket over on him, where it freezes, until he looks like a skating rink. When he has escaped from the hog pen, he hunts up six or seven buckets and crawls through a wire fence to milk twenty-seven cows. These patient ani mals wait until he lias the bucket near ly filled, when they kick it over, aiming so the contents will spare such parts of his clothing as the hogs spared. Now and then they vary the monotony by kicking him which makes him feel tired and homesick. When the cows have been milked he goes to feed the horses and finds the sorrel mare doubled up in the manger with the colic. He then has to mix up a lot of aconite and water which lie at tempts to pour down the animals neck, when s'ie hits him 0.1 the teeth with her front foot and makes him wish he had never been born. lie works around all morning with the old mare, and then proceeds to curry the dun mules which try to see who can kick the hardest and by the time he is through he feels as though he had passed through a corn sheller. When he has fed the hens and water ed the cattle, and hunted three hours for a twenty cent pig, and chopped half a cord of wood, and carried forty buck ets of water for the horses, and shelled three bushels of corn by hand, and has milked the cows, and curried the mulee and doctored the old mare again in the evening, he goes to bed. and gets up' again four hours before daylight ami commences the whole program over again. Mikado. Preparations for the production of Oilbert Sullivan's celebrated opera. "The Mikad are progressing finely. The special scenery which is being painted for this production, will be a revelation in the way of scenic art tothe people of Plymouth ami vicinity, and the costumes will be the finest ever seen in any amateur performance. Already the members of this company are becoming proficient. The following ladies and gentlemen are in the cast: Mrs. J. Hansen. Misses Daisy Dowell, IlaHie Kelley, Fdith Johnson, Nellie Disher, Krina Winnings. Mamie Drown. Ferd Drown. Fernnie üevnold. Marv Hoham, Marie Stein and Klizabeth Hughes. The gentlemen are: Messrs. ('has. Dover, K. Thompson. J. Houghton, (!. Fogle, (J. Dlain, A. U. Zimmerman, Frank Drooke, J. D. Smalley and Dert Harris. Everything will be perfected for the initial performance during the Christ mas holidays and a finished production of this tuneful opera may be assured, which will give Plymouth an opportun ity to hear and see a finished and cor rect rendition of music and comedy which is second to none. Back Numbers. Jn every community there are men or merchants who, with a store full of llv spected moth eaten, mouldy goods, will unblushingly tell you that "There is no need for them to advertise. They are too well known." Such a merchant is a good deal like a boil on a healthy person's neck, an abomination, a trial, but at the same time a blessing in disguise. Doctors tell us that a boil is a good thing; in as much as it disperses the bad humor of the system and the hlood. A live business man will tell you the same tiling about an antiquated mer chan' who dose not believe in advertis ing, like a boil, such a man is good for a Community, a Hording a chance for the live young business man to make his presence known and the outof date stock and delapitated collection of wares which the unadvertised store is sure to contain, makes the new and comprehen sive assortment of his hustling neigh bor, more pleasing and salable by com parison. The one will conduct his business upon the broad basis of small er profits but more certain and quicker I returns. The other w ill be content to sit by a rusty stove and bewail to his croney friends the fact that his busi ness is not what it used to be, never ad mitting for one moment the fact that he has not kept pace with the times, but has settled into a rut of old fogyism and out of date business methods suf ficient of themselves to proclaim him a back number in every sense of the word. What the commercial world need's to day is live young, energetic business men. Men advanced in the study of business methods, progressive wide awake and bright. Such men will rap idly crowd out the fossilized old timer whose business is "too well known to need advertising." Judicious and readable advertising pays, and the man with goods to sell or property to dispose of, the man in oth er words, who has something the public needs; and does not reach the people, through the means of known and repu table advertising mediums is an anti quated excresence on the face of the commercial world which the keen blade of american business energy is fast re moving. The day is not far distant when the old fashioned back-number business man will have to step down and out to make room for the young, hustling, energetic representative of modern commercial methods whose motto is "Advertise." Thanksgiving Ball. As previously announced, the ball un der the auspices of the Alpha Pleasure club was held Wednesday evening at the opera house. This the first ball of the season was a successful society event. Those who participated in the evening's enjoyment began to arrive early, and from the first strain of the (irand March, to the dying away of the sweet chords of Home, Sweet Home, the evening was full of pleasare. Hansen's orchestra furnished the mu sic for the occasion, and their ability be ing known, comments are unnecessary. The Alpha Pleasure club have won well merited praise for the manner in which they attend to the wishes of their guests, and there is no doubt that the future elTorts of this club will receive the same commendatory response as they received Thanksgiving eve. Orchestral Music. It has always been a matter of some dilliculty for the smaller cities to obtain good music for dances, Dalls and par ties, except by sending to some outside city for an rhestra. The same dilli culty has been expeiienced here in Plymouth in the past. but judging from the favorable verdict of those who at tended the Thanksgiving Dame, given by the Alpha Pleasure Club last Wed nesday evening. the local ortest ra gave every satisfaction, and it would seem with an ogranization such as that which Mr. Hanson 1ms founded here, there would be. now. no furl her need to get outside help in the musical way. The music rendered on Wednesday evening was all new and very appropriate, and it rejected great credit upon the leader and members of Hanson's orchestra. Those who will need music during the coming dance season would do well to remember, that they should uphold home industry in preference to going outside the citv with their monev and their patronage, and in engaging our local orchestra thev mav rest assured that they will be furnished good music at all times and for all occasions. Han son's orchestra is a credit to Plymouth, and one of which our citizens should be proud. Foot Ball. An exciting game of foot ball took place Thanksgiving day at the fair ground, ami a hotly contested game was put up. The teams represented the north and south side of Plymouth, and although the score stood at the finish I to 2 in favor of the north end, it was considered a very good game. The south end boys seemed to be dissatisfied with some of the rulings of the umpires but it is expected that this matter will be satisfactorily arranged for the next game. Another game will be played next Saturday the weather pernuting, and the boys extend an invitation to all to attend and witness the sport. One accident occurred during the game, but was not a very serious one. Jim Watkins, of the south side team in a fall was caught around the neck by an opponent, receiving a twist that proved very painful. The following are those that took part in the game: SOI Til KM).

The entertainment given at the opera house last Saturday evening was a good one, and appreciated by a fair sized au dience. There is no doubt that Andy Armann, as a (Jerman commedian, ranks A 1. The prominent feature of his work is the lack of that coarseness that, as a rule, is so often seen in a farce comedy. With him it was breezy, full of originality and mirth provoking. His support was good, and when tak en into consideration that the different characters represented were exceedingly young people, there is no mistake made when we pronounce "A Clean Sweep,' a good, well staged farce comedy. Mrs. Borton's Death. Dr. T. A. Dorton received the sad news of his mother's death at Bourbon on Thursday morning. The deceased Mahala Horton, was nearly 8'J years of age and was a lady well known and highly respected throughout this county.

Saturday evening about 7 o'clock, an alarm of lire called the department to (Jarro street east of the bridge, where it was supposed a fire was in progress. As usual tho members of the fire de partment turned out promptly, and had there been any lire to extinguish, would have gone to work manfully and brave ly. As it was, they found no use for their services. Some children were burning a heap of leaves and brush and tho ruddy glow reflected on the sur rounding buildings evidently alarmed someone who immediately rang the fire bell. Mrs. Sear's Death.
