THE YALE FLAX MILLS.
A Model and Successful Business
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
