Begin at Qnce I
The Climax Milling Company
closed a trade with tie Forbes Manu
facturing Company last Thurs Jar
a site on which to erect its largo
flouring mill t
The purchase embraces 371 feet
of ground fronting South Walnut
street 250 feet on 21st street and
running along the belt line railroad
325 feet A more eligible site ooold c
not have been selected It is east of
the large building now being put tip
by the American Snuff Co AH
wheat can be conveniently delivered
from wagons and the output of the
mill can be loaded on cars on the belfc
line right off the platform
The company has been negotiating
for the piece of land for some time
knowing that it was better adapted
for its wants than any along the
belt line The plans of the building
which have been in the hands ofu
competent architects for several
weeks are about completed and are
expected to be in the hands of the
officers of the company by next
Monday or Tuesday in a few days
after receiving the plans and speci
fications the company will proceed
to let out the contracts for founda
tion erecting the building etc
It is the intention of the company
to push the completion of the build
ing as rapidly as possibLe and install
the machinery as soon as practicable
Nothing but the latest and most im
proved machinery will be put in
I Every uptodate contrivance fat z
improving the quality of flour will
I be adopted and the new mill will be
one of the best equipped in this sec

products in the Southern States
which in the past year having fount
out the superior quality of Kentucky

nent Hopkinsville flour defends to a
very considerable extent lID ilven <
tucky and Hopkinsville for thrrn
breadstuffs The amount of flour
consumed by our home people Is
nothing in comparison with what we
are now making The field is not
only large enough for the new ftiflU
but any other that may be start
in the future Hopkinsville is fast
coming to the front as a flour mar
ket and the new mill will secure its
part of the trade
