Where They Make Goldrim Flour.
One of the institutions of the tri
cities which is making a furore in its
line of trade is the Western Flour Mill
company, of Davenport, the makers
of the famous Goldrim flour. Few peo
ple realize the magnitude of the busi
ness that is done by this firm, though
maru' are acquainted with the merit
of the flour which is turned out by the
busy mill across the river. The plant
has a capacity of 1.000 barrels daily,
and the company is popularly known
as goofl Hour makers. Minnesoia
and Dakota wheat is used in all of the
output. The flour is sold through local
grocers, not only in Rock Island, but
throughout the middle west. The con
cern is in no sense a jobber, as it man
ufactures all of the flour right here at
hom. and being a home concern, tri-
ity housewives will encourage a local
industry by Insisting that the flour
they use shall be Goldrim. Stockhold
ers in the plant are also owners of
some of the biggest leva'or3 of the
northwest, and through thir influence
'he mill Is able to secure the choicest
reelection of wheat.
