OBLIGED TO SEEK
MORE SPACIOUS QUARTERS
Having1 grown out of their Quarters
on the second floor of the McMahon &
Wren buildin,?, the Sargent Cigar
Company, manufacturers of the fa
mous "Humidor," and mail order and
wholesale cigar merchants, have been
obliged to seek larger quarters, hav
ing succeeded in, leasing for a term of
years, the store at 626 Water Street
formerly occupied by J. H. Ludding
ton & Co., which is also in the Mc-
Mahon & Wren building' but on the
ground floor. . The faot that this en
terprising concern has moved into new
quarters does not mean that they have
done away with the old, but on tne
other hand, have retained themv where
they now make the "Humidor" or
modern cigar chest. What lover of a
good cigar has not heard of the "Hu
midor." This chest is a novelty in it
self and the greatest preserver of cl
ears Vet manufactured. Their latest
h'oveity, however, is -the "College Hu
midor" ana is for cigarette use. it s
a necessity and ought to be in the
smoking room of every good student
who enjoys the fragrance of a good
cigarette. This company also carries
"Humidors" of various sizes, from the
small one cigar box affair up to the
s-ize for hotel and cigar store use.
These will be found not only useful
for the storing and preserving of ci
gars but most of all a money saver,
which is what the universe at large
is looking for.
However, the mail order department
of this concern is rapidly assuming
large proportions, it being principally
because of this branch of the business
that the new quarters had to be pro
cured. It is an "almost every day oc
currence for the office force to read
orders frorru patrons in frigid Canada,
the far West, and even the balmy
south, where a good smoke is appre
ciated, to say nothing of the constant
streams of orders that flow in from
the Eastern states. it is the inten
tion or the company, in fact, orders
have been placed with the most pop
ular monthly magazine for the ad
vertising of the mail order branch of
this concern, thus bringing to notice
all over the world another feature of
the varied Industries of the Park City.

Statistics Show 7,000 More
Persons Now Employed
Than Ten Years Ago
Hartford, Sept. 3. Industrial and
other statistics, which the board of
trade has been gathering for the past
ten days, are now sufficiently com
plete to show the prosperous stride
Hartford has developed, on the heels
of the depression. They show that
practically every factory in town is
again on full time and that 17 con
cerns are on overtime in one or more
of their departments. The concensus
of opinion of the local chiefs of in
dustry relative to the, future business
outlook is highly optimistic. The re
ports received by the board of trade,
coupled with the building operations
since January, and .the banking condi
tions indicate that Hartford Is enter
ing upon a period of prosperity akin
to that which prevailed prior to the
panic. Orders are constantly coming
in in all branches of trade, thus in
suring permanent employment for the
thousands of factory hands during
the winter and spring.
The statistics were procured from
forty factories, giving employment to
14,000 hands. They show that there
are at least 7,000 more workmen em
ployed in local industries than there
were ten years ago, thus illustrating
the steady growth of the city as a
manufacturing center, befdfdes indicat
ing the chief source of the additions
to our population.
Building operations since January 1
cost approximately $2,000,000. Of this
total over one-half of $1,467,900 has
been for dwellings and apartments
which more than anything else indi
cate the growth of the community.
There have been erected 143 one or
two-family houses at a. cost of $901,-
100, and 67 tenements or apartments,
the expenditure for which has been
$556,800. These figures show the
popularity of the one and two-family
house as against tenements. The
tendency is away from tenement lire
and toward the cottage type of dwell
Factories and storehouses -to the
number of six and value of $190,000
have been erected; alterations cost
$199,625 and public buildings $250,
000. The total cost of building con
struction during 1908 was only $3,-
107,348, the total number of dwellings
erected being 117. A comparison of
fleures shows that dwelling nouse op
erations for the first six months of
this year are about one-third larger
than they were for the entire period
of 1908. Tenements and apartments
tn the number of 67 were erected in
1908, exactly the number constructed
during the first half of the present
year. . ,
