The Knitting nilllv il IJeimliiKlon,
The first knitting mill sinricil In Iienniiii;.
ton was put into operation nliout liftecn
years ago liy Gen. GcQige Hrailfortl. mi (lie
site wlicro his pre.-cnt tipper mill now
stands. At Unit time he started with oh
one f-ct oC machinery, nnd commenced Hie
manufacture of Unit goods for ladles wear
At tho end of n year, ho associated with
him in hiisintss his In-other, who was then
engaged in the maimfacUuo of woolen
cloth. Tills paitncivhip continued for
many years, and all the time their hiiHiiesi
was rapidly increasing. A few years nso
his mill was destroyed hyiire, nnd what h
now called the tipper mill of Hradfotd it
Sons was erected liy him. This not prov
ing largo enough to contain tho force ne
cessary to manufacture goods sulllcienl to
fill his orders, so great was the demand for
them, he succeeded in securing tiie mill
owned and formerly occupied hy S. 1).
Hunt, associating with him in business his
tons, Prof. Frank liradford, and G. A.
Vuttto, under tiie llrm name of Hradl'oid
& Sons, engaged moic extciiMuly than lie
fore in tho manufnctuiu of knit goods. The
upper mill which is under the MipmUlou
or 1-rank Hradford, is a full two s-et mill,
employing forty.flvo hands, and manufac
tures daily tliirly-llvc doen shirts and
drawers. This mill is run liy water, but is
lltted with a steam engine, and in case of a
scarcity of water can ho run liy steam.
The lower mill, which is under the direc
tion of Jlr. Wattles, is iv full four set mill,
and the machinery for it was made in Eng
land and imported expressly for this mill.
The force in this mill is eighty hands, and
manufactures on an average fifty dozen
per day. This mill is rim entirely hy water,
it being provided with a never failing water
power. The goods manufactured at both
of these mills, mostly for ladies wear,
aro made from the finest wool and rank as
twenty guage line, nnd although the works
are driven to their utmost extent, they are
scarcely able to keep up w ith the steady
and rapid demand for their goods. They
run in both mills twenty-five sewing ma
chines, the samejiower that carries the ma
chinery running the machines, which arc
the Grovcr & Raker, and Wilcox it Glbbs.
The Grovcr & Baker being used for finish
ing, they being considered the best for that
purpose. Although they Intend to make ladies
goods mostly, still they manufactmo some
gents and chlldrcns wear, and during the
past year made at tho lower mill 2,000
dozen for gents nnd fiOO dozen for clilldrens
w ear, of tho same quality as the ladies
Both mills are under the personal super
vision of Gen. Geo. Bradford, who divides
his time nliout equally between them, and
although he is getting advanced In years,
his business habits are still as good and un
impaired as ever. Ho has accumulated
quite a fortune In his business, is one of
our most liberal and enterprising citizens,
and probably no one man In the placo has
done moro to promote the growth nnd pros
perity of Bennington than he. n.
The Hoosao Ti-x.t.l C'n:ioi-s Oiisr.i:
vations. Tho direction of the draft
through tlio Hoosao tunnel and the central
shaft has been changed hy the warm
weather. Durlinr tho cold weather tho
draft was through tho tunnel ami up tho
shaft. On Apiil 20, ns tlio thermometer
readied a temperature of sixty.two degrees,
the circulation decreased to nothing, and
reversed its course, passing down the shaft
and out of tlio portal cast. This chango is
taking place according to temperature
every day. During tlio night tho draft is
upward through tho shaft, and during the
day, as tho air becomes warm, tlio samo
process takes placo as above mentioned.
Tho results of a downward draft glvo inter
esting Information. A light can bo seen
tho entire length of the tliaft, n depth of
1.030 feet. Tho tlmberlui: is visible about
one-half tho distance dow n, giving a more
frightful cast to tlio notoilous placo than
over liefore. The daylight always pene
trate, to tho bottom of tlio shaft, n fnct
which has never before been recorded.
Tho progress mado at tho central i-haft,
west heading, for the month of April, 18711,
was 103 feet, tho best work ever done on
tho tunnel. 2'ny J'ms, May 8.
