OF CARY MAPLE
Contracts Let for Erection
ol Big Fireproof Building j
In Summerville 1
The contract lias just been let with
tho IL P. Cummings Construction
Company for the hi; sugar factory
which the Cary Maple Sugar Com-j
)any will erect over in Summerville :
beyond the Follensby Mill. T'nej
building will be creeled from plans,
drawn by Webster & Libbey of Port-
Iniicl Me., and will be thc
ground dimensions 200 by 51 feet.
As a result of the numerous con-
Urcnec contracts nave ueen let lor
the various products needed in the
COnstruction of this big plant which
includes 100,000 feet of timber loi
the cement molds, structural steel,
spiral chutes, window
Besidis many architectural
! glass, etc
only factory of its
kind in thc world, chemical problems
had to be .solved in planning to run
the sugar into the boxes in a semi
li(iiirl condition at just the right
moment in the process of its manu
facture. In the interior there will be
an entire new ari-angenient of equip
ment, all of-which will be- manufac
tured by a Boston concern. The
principal feature of the equipment
will be four huge copper tanks, each
of 1,200 gallons capacity. Heat will
be produced in these tanks by coils
of hot steam pipes inside the big
tanks. The new factory will bo sup
plied with all kinds of labor saving
devices and the product in the course
of its manufacture will descend
through the floors by the gravity sys
tem. As the syrup or sugar enters the
factory it will be transferred from
the cars on . the siding next to the
Maine' Central track. to the first floor
which will be on a level with thc floor
of the cars. There arc five large
doors on. the first floor for receiving
mid discharging thc product. Thc
sugar will be taken to the big eleva
tor and thence transportd to the 4th
floor where the tugs will be first
steamed ami then the sugar boiled
down on the lower floors. All the
syrup received will be. pumped from a
storage tank below the first floor to
the fourth floor and then transported
to thc lower flors to be made into
"Highland Block" sugar.
Fifty feet west of thc big factory
is thc storehouse, already completed,
and thc box factory. From the lat
ter building the boxes will be. brought
into the factory by conveyors and the
sugar in a semi-liquid condition will
be poured into the boxes and soon
harden. The full boxes will be trans
ported from the cooling room to the
shipping room on the first floor by
Thc plant when completed will
have a capacity of manufacturing
three carloads of sugar a day and the
many friends of Mr. Cary will con
grtulale him on the prospects of hav
ing thc finest plant of its kind in the
world and wish him continued suc
cess in the great business which hf

Mr. Br-atty was not at the ball.
While nearly 1,000 people jammed in
to the St.. Johnsbury Awnoi-y, waited
breathlessly while Fvanft Brooks read
tho lucky number, Mr. Bcatty was ot
home with hi.-' wife and youngster on

were taken out of the huge box con
taining the stubs of all the tickets
sold. Then after those numbers had
been read, fifteen were selected from
thc 25. After reading the fifteen
numbers, a final five wcro drawn.
Then from the final five one number,

The drawing was a very popular
one. An expression hard throughout
the hall was "Well, so long as I
could not get it, 1 am very glad that
it was drawn by someone who can
make use of it." And Mr. Bcatty will
make good use of thc car this sum

early so as-' not to miss the fine!
