'I'liu Ilriiiiiliiii llltlitiliicliiiiiit.' C'iiiii
null)'. Among the many manufacturing In
tcicsts of tlie Stale that are worthy of
commendation, the manufacturing of scales
takes a specially prominent place from the
fact that we have monopolized this branch
of manufacture and made II a Vermont
Institution, and on account of the excel,
lcnce and acuracy of Ihe aitlde inanufae
lined, and the zeal and energy shown hi
their Introduction. Vermont I noted alike
throughout the world for her marble and
scales, and liulland County bids fair to he
me the headquarter of both.
Among the manufacturer of scales the
Brandon Manufacturing Company stands
iie-cmiiieut. Organized in lfOH, it lias hi
llio short spaeh or live icars built up a
large business and added gieally to the
wealth and impoitnncc of liramlon,
The vi oik of this Company me situated
near Hie centre of that bii'y little town
and have the eontral of all the water of
ltiandon liver ; Ihey are spread over eleven
and a half acres of land. The shops, foun
deries, etc., have at picsont an area of 102,-
0I feel of Homing lo which largo additions
will have lo be made the coming season.
We can form a more correct Idea of the
magnitude of Hie vvoiks by tracing the
growth of the scale and noting its different
stages, thnn by any oilier mean. Suppose
we begin here with this heap of iron. Here
we ate told are American and Scotch pig
iron, car wind and scrap iron, each kind of
which lias a paiticidar duty to pcrronn.
I he Scotch iron is Hie finest of foreign
iron, while the car wheel and scrap i used
for the strength it gives. Xow wo come lo
t lie foundry, which, when Mr. Sprague
took charge of the Company, was a small
concern, occupying only a corner of the
large building now required. Kven this has
proved inadequate and an addition of 2,880
sqttaie lect will be built tin year. On
your left hand is the brass fonndry, wlicro !
00,000 pounds of brass are used each year
in Hie manufacture of scale beams and
w eights alone. Opposite the brass foundry
is tlie chilled iron foundry, wheic a man
lier of men are engaged in making those
chilled iron bales that fill so important a
pail in tlic economy of the "Howe Scale,"
of which anon. Looking down the long
iron foundry you see all tlie scales In the
rough, from the small Post Olllcc scalo
that marks the weight in ounces of a ladles
letter to tlio gigantic railroad scale that
w eighs your marble.
The next (step is the machine shop, but
on our way there wo will stop for a few
minutes to examine tho lumber yards, dry
houses, tin sltops, etc. The lumber yards
nro pilled high up Willi the finest of hard
wood lumber, and the dry-house Is filled
with !!23 cords of wood In process of sea
soning. All the wood used In the mami-
faetuie of the scales has to undergo a sea
soning of twelve months.
Tho tin shop Is driven to its utmost ca
pacity in endeavoring to supply the scale
pans, scrap, etc., that are a pint of each
grocer scale. Xow wo begin to hear the
w liirl and jar of the lnaclduerv and find out-
selves In a large building every inch of
which is utilized. A net work of belts Is
over our heads, and laths, planers, etc., are
all about us, so that you have lo walk cir
fiimspcctcdly or you will catch your head
by the one and be turned out in a scale
beam by the other. 'There Is our scale, ly
ing among a bundled other, that those
woikinen are turning over. They will all
be adjusted, cleaned, etc., and then taken
to the wood shop, wheio llio scales will ic
ceivo its platform and a pillar, made from
the seasoned wood we have mentioned. In
lid shop ate tho celebrated machine, that
tho Ilninilou Manufacturing Company have,
manufactured for their own Use, for milk
big scale beams. They mu perfect hi their
way and display gteat ingenuity.
Tlie sealing, painting and lacking looms
come next hi older. Hero we find men
testing and sealing each scale that goes out
of the factory, giving It his cateful alien
lion, so that there 1 not n vaiialioii of a
hair in Its accuracy. Tho paint shop and
Japanning looms are filled with scale un
dergoing their finishing touches. That
scale I being painted in gay colors and
ornamented with bronze, to meet the Inslo
and fancy of the oirntic Henchman;
while Ibis one is destined to register the
weight of lea to an almond-eyed Celestial.
'The lacking room will have to complete
our lour of observation for the picsent, al
though much remains to bo noticed. Here
we see the last of our scale, and bill it
good bye ns a woikinan park It, with II
high polished brass beam and all its other
part, anil consigns it lo Hie freight house.
Time and space am wanting lo speak of
tlio store house, wlieio tons of screws,
nails and washer, paints, paper, Ac., itc
aio stored ; or of the pattern shop, with lis
qunrlcr ol a million dollars worth of pat
tern, a we must hasten on to notice the
cnterpiiso and work the company has ae.
In 1B0H, when Mr. Sprague assumed
the picsldcncy of the company, they cm.
ployed only twenty-seven men, and occu
