on Kiit sixth Streft.
Among the numerous manufact

the Columbia Marble Works, ut No.
17 East Sixth street, is one to which
no small degree of importance
should be attached.
A HERAM) reporter one day this
week had the pleasure of going
through and inspecting this estab
lishment with the genial proprietor,
Mr. S. P. Payne. The shop is fitted
up with the latest improved ma
chinery, tools, etc., and nine skilled
workmen are kept busy shaping the .
crude stone into various forms of
symmetry and beauty. One of the
most important improvements in
the plant is a granite polishing mo
chine, which is run by power, sav
ing a great amount of labor and Eiv
ing a finish to the stone that cannot
be obtained by hand. Mr. Payne
uses Vermont, Georgia and all
American and foreign granites, Ver
mont. Georgia and Italian msrhle.s,
and Kentucky Oolitic stone, and
turns out all kinds of cemetery
work, coping, curbing, etc.
