Elected Enrolling Clerk

From the Lexington, Missouri Intelligencer, 8 January 1915:

Frank Bowman of this city was elected Enrolling Clerk last night of the House of Representatives at Jefferson City. Mr. Bowman served in this capacity two years ago, and gave such general satisfaction that his election this time was without opposition.

The other two composite photos are courtesy of the Missouri State Archives from the Official Manual of the State of Missouri, 1913-1914 and The Official Manual of the State of Missouri, 1915-1916.  My ancestor, Frank Bowman, Enrolling Clerk, is in the fourth row, column 1 in 1913-1914.  In 1915-1916, he is in the right row, second from the bottom. 

(Author's note: the actual date of the paper was elicited from As you can see, Intelligencer 1915 is written on the side. I was lucky on this one as most of the articles I find are not sourced.)
