Portsmouth Blade : "It is said tho man
agement of the Maysville Plow Company
desire to move their extensive plant to
Portsmouth, and they don't ask any
bonus. Tiio old site of the Burgess mill
is tho location designated by thoso who
seem to know, and that thoy are only
waiting for the debria to be cleared away
before going to work. This is certainly
good news if true. The Maysville Plow
Company is the largest establishment of
the kind in the West. It furnishes plows
for tho entire South."
If the Blade has reference to the James
H. Hall plow factory, the Bulletin is au
thorized to say there is not a word of
truth in the above report.
