glad, but all our citizens as well,
to know that the mill is now in

Johnson & Pinny, have met with
many discouraging difficulties in
erecting the plant, and taking it
as a whole, it shows push on
their part that the engine is al
ready at work in its place. I
August work was begun on the
building for the plant. A en
gine was bought andpiaced in
running order, but proved to be
too small for the place, so it had
to be torn out again. All this
took time and undoubtedly cost
a great outlay of money. A larg
er and better engine was then
purchased, which has now been
put to its task of pulling the mill
machinery. I is a credit to the
town. Th expense of the whole
has no doubt reached thousands
of dollars, and it speaks well for
the financial standing of the firm
to be able to furnish that much
money in these depressed times.
