A Model and Successful Business fcnterprise. , OKOANIZATION. The Yale branch of this valuable enterprise is but one of several con ducted by James Livingston & Com pany in this State and in various places in Canada. The business was organized at this point in 1887 and lias been continuously and successfully managed by those in charge since that date.' The new branch at Fargo was organ ized by tho same company during the present season, and is conducted by the same management a fact that niake3 its success assured. SCOPU OF EMPLOYMENT. Doubtless few of the Expositor's numerous readers realize the extent and value of this institution to the village and surrounding communities. During the present season the Yale mill has afforded employment for 45 hands during the summer and 23 during the winter; while the Fargo branch will employ about 40 in summer and 17 during the winter season. Its use to the neighboring farmers is indicated by the fact that the Yale branch consumes the products of 000 acres of land that are aunually sown to llax, and the Fargo mill will use fully 400 acres more, making a total of 1,000 acres of land annually used and the products brought directly to these places. THE rA 110LL. Although the present season has been unusually severe upon this as well as all other products of the farm the value of this business as a means of distributing money throughout the village and surrounding communities is fully shown by the fact that the company have, so far during the pres ent season, paid out money as follows: Yale Mill, to farmers, S3,440, " for Labor, etc, 88.444. Fargo Mill, to farmers, $3,940. 1 " for labor, etc. ' 82,109. Total, iioim THE rUODUCT. Uefore the product of the mill reach es the consumer it passes through many hand3 and processes and it is surprising that the finished article can be obtained at such reasonable prices as they are sold at. In addition to the plowing, sowing, and cultivation of the soil, the flax must be carefully pulled, bound, and cured; then spread out over acres of territory and again turned, bound, and taken back to the mill for threshing, hackling, etc. The hackled ilax is used in weaving linen goods and for carpet warp. The tow made from the same is spun into shoe-thread, sail twine, and many other articles which require a strong, enduring fiber. Tho green tow is much used for upholstering purposes, and the coarsest tow for manufacturing strong paper, rope, etc. Thus it will be seen that the green ilax that is seen growing by the road-side passes through the various processes employ ed In the business until nearly every particle is manufactnred into articles that are wonderfully beautiful and useful. The products referred to are shipped direct to New York, Jloston, Detroit, Chicago and many other important cities throughout the Union where factories are located. THE MANAGEMENT. James McCall, the active member of the firm at this place and Fargo, has been closely identified with the busi ness from its beginning. Every de partment undergoes his careful in spection. There is nothing out of place around the institution. Every farm, place, or building that comes into use in connection with the busi ness immediately undergoes a change for the better, so that, taken as a whole, the success of this valuable enterprise is a marked illustration of the fact that, integrity, energy, thrift, and "Stick-to-lt-iveness" will make any legitimate business enterprise a success.
