FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 188S
Dillingham & Co.'s.
The other flay our reporter stroll
ed into Dillingham & Co.'s to get a
littk1 information on tbo Mibjcct of
agricultural implements, as lie had
invcbtcd a few dollars in a share of
sngnr plantation stock, and he want
ed to know all about it, to ho could
see if the managers were really at
tending to their business in that line.
He was received most courteously
by 3Ir. Dillingham, who conducted
him carefully through a mazy laby
rinth of articles, varying from a
pocket-knife to a plough and a dust
pan to a refrigerator. We give the
following report as the result of his
The firm have four large ware
houses on the beach in which thej'
keep the things that they can't
squeeze into their already filled
store. But they tell us that they are
constantly emptying their shelves in
the store, and as constantly empty
ing their warehouses to supply the
Next they keep a paint and oil
warehouse in which they have stored
all kinds of American and English
leads and paints, oils, carriage and
furnituic varnishes, etc., and espe
cially a large stock of lubricating
oils for plantation use. Our reporter
did not make too close an examina
tion, as he had his .Sunday clothes
on, and bolie passed ou up stairways
and ladders till he reached the third
story, which is filled with agricul
tural implements in bulk.
Then coming down to the second
story he wandered through a maze
of lamps and lamp ware. On every
side chandeliers and lamps and piles
of keroseue oil cases, of which Dil
lingham & Co. sometimes receive as
much as 2,000 cases at a single
shipment. The Klcctrie (what a
suggestive title) is the favorite
hrnnd. Passing from light to heavy
he came across the object of his
search, the ploughs, &c.
Here are displayed, ready for use,
a full line of Molino ploughs, able to
cut furrows from 6 to 16 inches in
width, harrows, (Truman & Jack'
eon's arc well-kno,wn on the islands
and possess excellent local testi
mouials), cultivators adapted to all
the different kinds of soil found on
the islauds. Hero, too, are the
justly celebrated Dillingham & Co,
ploughs, which have- been constructed
from suggestions made- by practical
i ' planters. There are both single and
' double furrow ploughs of this type,
1 the improved 1-1 in breaker, and so
nvell do they meet the long felt wants
, of plautcrs that they arc brought at
g 'first sight. A well-known kornaaina,
if'Parker Makee, Esq., says they are

the best that have ever come into
the islands. The double furrow type
is the latest and is still further im
proved ; it is believed to be, without
a defect: Messrs. Dillingham & Co,
proudly point to It as a practical
evidence of the iuterest they take in
the improvement of the islands. The
next visited was Baldwin's improved
fodder cutters, which wc know from
experience to be thoroughly useful
to every cultivator in providing
chopped food for his live stock.
Coming down to the ground floor
the Studebaker & Davis iron wagons
were inspected. These are intended
for planters use in carrying sugar
down from the mills to the landing,
ind bringing merchandise back.
Then the wonderful variety of mecha
nics' tools were shown too, and what
is .more interesting to the housewife,
the beautiful utensils of agatu waro
were looked at. Messrs. Dillingham
& Co., for the convenience of in
tending purchasers, have- prepared
and excellent illustrated and priced
catalogue, which they supply gratis.
Here our reporter's notes become
simply a catalogue, twines, fishing
gear, brushes of all sorts, builder's
hardware, planter's hardware, novel
ties iu house-furnishing, tinware,
coal oil stoves, water filters, and a
specially interesting item for llono
luluans, tlio newest stylus of ice
chests. These have sold vcryTapid
ly and only a few are left.
Messrs. Dillingham & Co. are im
mense on giving away catalogues
and lly sheets, descriptive of their
wares. Wc recommend our readers
to pay a visit to Messrs. Dillingham
& Co., if only to experience the
courtesies of Mr. B. F. Dillingham
and Mr. Spencer.
