Clay Plants in the State, and with the best fire clay in the United
States, ought to have a dozen more.
We have an unlimited amount of. clay suitable for potteries. We have
fire-plastic clays suitable for insulators, clays for sewer pipe and for building
We can supply you with tracts of from 30 acres up to 440 on the rail
road. We will allow the closest investigation of these tracts.
Several large brick blocks are going up. A laundry and a broom factory
are being installed, while we have a handle factory which is now in success
ful operation and which has recently doubled its capacity, having added
machinery for manufacture of insulator pins and brackets.
By an almost unanimous vote a franchise was granted to the Hydro-
Electric Power Company of St. Louis, which means cheap power generated
by immense dams across the Gravois ten miles south. This cheap power is
bound to attract manufacturers. The promoters state that they will be able
to develop 30,000 horse power. They MUST have a market for their cur
rent, and will gladly assist any of the following enterprises : Several more
clay plants, potteries, insulator factories, woven wire factory, furniture fac
tory, ice plant, woolen mills, and any other legitimate enterprise.
The Missouri Cannel Coal Company are building a railroad to their
mines six miles northwest of this city, where they are developing a fine body
of coal. It is expected that this line will become an electric line to Sedalia.
We especially desire clay men from any part of the
U. S. to investigate the Clays of this section.
We have ample railway facilities, and an abundance of raw material.
