Few perhai a of the citizens of Rock
Island realize that right in the centre of
the city is an industry, which though
only a few months old, bids fair to be
come one of the city's most valuable
manufacturing establishments and spread
Rock Island's name and fame through
many a village and hamlet in every sec
tion of the ct untry. The Rock Island
Buggy company was organized only last
December with a capital stock of $25,
000, and ihe building at the corner of
First avenue ixd Sixteenth street, former
ly occupied by the Children's Carriage
crmpsny, wan secured for the location of
the new establishment. Its success frjm
tbe start was apparent and imme
diately tbe adjoining 3-story brick
building which had been rreviousiy
occupied by the Fleming Fruit
house, wit secured and operations were
begun in earnest. An Argus reporter paid
a visit to the factory this morning;, and
was taken in charge by John Crubaugh,
one of the nott active and enterprising
members of the company, and shown
through the ustabliskment. After visit ing
tbe effice, the reporter was shewn
through tbe different departments of the
factory propt r, which is, indeed, a verit
able hive of industry. On the first floors
re located tte salesroom, blacksmithing,
wood and Suing departments, stock
rooms, and tie packing and shipping de
partments. The second floors are
occupied by tbe storeroom, gearing and
stripeing roon, and the finishing depart
