,. factt About Itt Mnalnaat.
An enterprising business firni deserves,
and usually acquires, ruocess. Ai the
friend ot enterprise, and as the mouth,
piece of Cairo's business community, the
BuLLETis occasionally finds space in Its
columns for the enllghtmcnt ol Him publlc
as to what may bo occurring of luteivst
in the business - world. It It peculiarly
pleasing to speak of a raau who has been
Identified with the Internes of our city lor
a number of years; and who, during that
time, has always labored lor the advance
ment of the clty't Interests. With these
consideration! before him, a representa
tive ot the Bcurtin yesterday called at
the Cairo city mills where he found the
proprietor, Mr. Gallgher, and requesting
permission to take a little rauiule over
the premises, was accorded that privilege,
and started out under the guardianship
of that accommodating young gentleman,
Mr. Frank Gallgher. It may bo well here
to give a briet statement of the capacity
of the mills, number of employ
es, uuinVur of run of burn, etc
PLACE Ol' Bl'SINLSS.
The mills, which are located at the
corner ol2utu street aud the levee, con
sist ot three buildings a store house, the
cooper shop and the mill proper. The
latter Is a large frame biuldinir, Its di
mensions being GUx70 feet, and is four
stories in height be$Idc a basement. It
has an Irou roof, and all necessary pre
cautions against lire, ai upon each floor
are conveniently located two lire appar
atus, to each of which Is attached 40 leet
ot hoe. Direct communication exists
between olllcc and engine room, and In
case of emergency all that is nicestary
is to notify the engineer who turns on
the water, and the apparatus U ImmedU
stelr ready for action. The store house
is a threestoiy fram building which is
used exjhisively lor tho storage oi hrsn,
.hlpstiift? empty barrvls, etc. The coop'
cr house, v.hii h i ju.t In the rear of the
latter building, is a story and a half In
height and here all the barrels required
for use are manufactured, 15 men being
ennianly employed fir thir purpose.
Entering the mill from the omee
the ilrsl . place visited was the cel
lar. Here wt iind seven sinks where the
grain Is stored Irom the cars, each of
these sinks having a 'capacity of three
cars. Ascending to the 2nd or grindinir
floor we Iw-re find the buns together with
the flour packing machines, the former
being seven In number, all of which
are in constant ue during theeutire
week, both night and day, with the exs
ceptlon of Sunday.
The third Moor is used lor the purpose
of storing what and where ure also tlx
pnrilying machines by which the oflal :s
separated from the flour by a pateut pro
ecu which Is so Intricate and confusing in
itt nature that the reporter Uo not at
tempt a luald explanation ot It. On the
fourth floor the mm it citatmeil ana the
flour deposited in a gigantic cooler for
the purpose which it na'ne indicates.
Decemliii2 to the first floor we enter
ti e engine room where a 75 horse power
engine with a fly wheel 30 lea iu dlamc
ter, together with two boilers furnish ti e
required power lor running the mills.
EXTENT OF BL sINE'S.
Mr. Gallglier, the proprietor ol tho
mills has been in busincts for the past IS
years all of which time he lias been loca
ted where lie now is. In the. conduction
ot the trade it is evident that a large
expenditure yearly is uccessanly requir
ed; and, in fact, the running expenses
are about Jl.llOO per day. The principal
points to which the flour manufactured
here Is shipped are New York, New Or
leans and Liverpool, together with oter
points throughout the country, and to
supply this trade (the enormity ot which
is apparaut Irom the statement that the
sales last year aggregated J tl0,00u) over
50,000 b-u rels ot flour are produced year
ly. The steamship Mexican, which loaded
at Port Royal, S. C, for Liverpool, some
two mouths since, and has ncrtr since
been heard Irom carried an Invoice of 125
barrels of flour shipped from these mills.
Wheat is purchased Irom different
place?, about of the entire amonnt
cousin: from local points being delivered
In wagons, and there are now stored at
ti,? mills in the neighborhood ol 30,(W0

New York, trustee aud tor the bond

road company, filed a bill lit chancery,
asking for a foreclosure ol the mortgage
on that .' road and the appoint

are taken: The mortgage it the only one
on the road and Is the only lien on the
entire property ot the company, includ

about 130 miles. A larirc part ol itt

been seriously crippled by tho late de

good prices therefor, and thluklng they got "value received'' but found they were
deceived, and you can find most of clothing buyers to-day disbelieving everything
tbat is'said or written about honest goods. We opened the lalloampAlga iyeoffni

termination to keep good goods,
lowest figures. and expose
clothing trade. How well we have
our many customers to speak; uow we nave succeeded in tbe latter, the reader of
the press may Judge while our band Is in, we will ask a fayor of all our erutoeacri.
Please tell people, when you are asked, where you bought your garment that yoa
got it ot Farnbaker, Tbe Clothier, and not ssy: "I bad It made. I bought the
