Cain has been traveling for E. O.
Schroff of Chicago since last February
distributing these machines and col
lecting the pennies. A little over eight
weeks ago he arrived at the conclusion
that the business was a pretty good
thing, and decided to embark in It on
his own hook.
STARTS OWN COMPA1CT.
Together with three other young men
he organized what Is known as the
Rock River Gum Machine company,
with a shop at Rock Island. The men
went to work to put oat a machine, In
corporating all the desirable features
of the Schroff machine and adding
some Improvements. The first lot, 11
in all, was placed in Mollne. Three
were taken to Clinton, but were never
placed in operation because of the ad
verse attitude of the police. The Rock
River company has only been in ex
istence eight weeks, and has not com
pleted its first hundred machines yet.
It is understood that Cain put up most
of the money to float the concern, and
was the main squeeze.
