Messrs. Robinson ec Co., proprietors of
the Maysville City Flour Mills, will ship
to-day a car load of five hundred bushels
of corn meal, to a firm at Mt. Sterling,
Ky. Al.though Messrs. Robinson & Co.
buy their corn at Cincinnati and the
freight from there to Mt. Sterling is the
same from this city, as they have been given
the preference over Cincinnati manufacturers,
and for the reason that their meal
is of a better quality, as it is made of selected
corn. They make a specialty of
good meal and having a reputation at
stake, can afford to make none but the
best. They have built up a largo trade
which requires about a thousand bushels
of corn a week to supply.
