There is no one doing business in
this city who delights his customers
more at the present time than Mr. T.

representative of this paper inspected
Mr. Wathen's factory, and learned
that it is the largest in the State, pos
sessing four times the capacity of any
similar institution. Mr. Wathen has
been conducting the business at 629
Eighth street for the past five years,
giving his personal supervision to the
production of his creams and ices, and
his trade has increased until now he
operates four double freezing ma
chines, with a capacity of 1,500 gal
lons per day. It is the popular thing
to procure his creams and ices, and
there is a growing demand for them
even outside of the city, as he is now
prepared to ship goods with the great
est safety and promptness. In addi
tion to -the ice cream factory, Mr.
Wathen conducts a first-class bakery
and creamery, and is therefore pre
pared to fill completely all orders for
outings, receptions or home use. His
factory is always open to the inspec
tion of the public.

performing his daily labor, until he
graduated, seven years ago, when he
went into business for himself at 1304
West Main street. He has always
taken a leading part in Irish so
ciety affairs and is ever ready to
lend a helping hand to any of his less
fortunate countrymen or neighbors.
Mr. Keane is an active member of the
Ancient Order of Hibernians, Irish

Honor. He has for some time taken
an active interest in city- politics, and

interest displayed in receiving any
suggestions for the good of the cause.
Mr. William Foley has proven him
self a capable Chairman, and has
been untiring in his efforts to make
the outing a financial and social suc
