Much Larger Output.
Last week the Advertiser through
a slip of the type stated that the
quarry will very soon double its
capacity and instead of shipping six
or eight cars a week will ship twelve
or fifteen cars a week. We should
have stated that this number of cars
will be shipped every day instead of
every week, making the week's vol
ume from 75 to 90 cars a week. Al
ready the company has orders that
will require ten months to fill and in
that time many other orders will be
received. Mr. W. B. Jamison, the
capable manager, told The Adver
tiser's representative several days
ago that their weekly payroll is
about $1,200 for labor. This tremen
dous increase in volume of business
means much to this community.
