The Mengcl Box Co., since the wa
ter first began to recede, has been
working a big force of men getting
their plants ready for operation, and
by so doing, will have the plants In
operation Monday. The veneer mill
Is partly In operation and has been
since Tuesday morning, although the
ground Is yet covered with water.
The veneer machines will begin op
eration Friday, and the balance of
tho mill Monday. Things are not by
any means dead around those plants,
as the click of hammers and saws
making the necessary repalre could
be heard several days ago. The ma
chine shop which Is driven by electric
motors, la now being driven tempor
arily by a gas engine and repairing
of machinery is bolng pushed day and
night. The chief electrician of the
company Is here from Louisville, al
so on electrical engineeer from Chi
cago. Within three weeks, one would
hardly bo able to tell that an over
flow had totally disabled these plants,
as the work of cleaning up will be
continued until there will bo no sign
of tbe disastrous flood which we
have just had.
