This suporb establishment, as remarka

wo note a particular featuro of this firm.
they manufacture jewelry
from tho bullion, twenty dollar gold
pieces being used for that purpose. Al
though tho Messrs. Tabors are old residents,
and havo patiently, industriously und hon
estly worked their way upward to the pres
ent proud position they occupy in tbo esti
mation of their fellow-citizens, it is only
four years since tho elder member of tho
firm commenced aiono to manufacture
gold and silver articles. Wo recommend
our citizens to pay a visit to the work
rooms and see tho
process of construction
of solid gold goods, from 14 to 18 carats
fine. It is not generally known that such
n manufactory exists in our midst, and
will well repay examination, under the
polite guidance of the affable head of tho
firm. Mr. T. deserves great credit for his
perseverance and energy. There Is no
other like it, we believe, short of St. Louis
or Chicago. There is ono branch of the
business which he attends to exclusively
himself, namely:
DIE SINKING,

blcs for holding the melted gold,
only being used two or three
times, and a number of delicate
machines used in tho construction of tho
numerous articles ho manufactures. Gold
watch chains wero being made whilst wo
wero present; also masonic breast pins,
etc. Beautiful engravings in old English
