A reporter for tho Bi llkh.v yesterday

Box and Basket factory for the purpose
of giving the public a little iiudght into
the extent and nature of the business
done by that company, and also a descri
ption of tbe works and machinery in use
in the manufacture of the millions of
boxes and baskets yearly produced hero.
Upon Inquiry of Mr. J. W. Strong, the
genial bookkeeper, we learned that Mr.
Fields, the superintendent f the works,

courtesy of the tirtt named gentleman
and Mr. II. 1L' Spencer, superintendent

of the company are located on ,'Mth nnd
Levee streets, mid together with lumber
yards, dry house, wood yard, store house,

are the largest and most complete works
In the west, and tbeir business extends to
almost every State in the 1'nion. Tho
working hours are from Monday morning
to Saturday night without Intermission,
and thu number of men given employ
ment variously ranges from 75 to 100
according to the demands of
trade. The employe ot the works are
paid promptly every wek in cash a
feature that speaks well for the financial
cokditlou of thn company. Wo venture
tho prediction that, but few ot our citizens
comprehend the enormous capacitv
which the works po.-sess lor the manu
acture of boxei and bask"ts, and the lol.
lowing statement will therefore appear
somewhat startling lo those not acquain

During the spring and summer this

ed. The past year 3,000,000 feet of po
plar, 2,000,000 feet of cottonwood, and
4,000,000 feet of oak and cypress logs
were raited down the Mississippi aud

feet of material placed there far the pur

Throughout tbe winter the works are
engaged almost exclusively in the manu
facture of cracker boxes as the fruit sea
son being over there It In consequence
no demand for baskets, The principal
room us:d for the preparation ol the
lumber for this use contains a large
amount of valuable machinery,
constructed especially for the
purpose for which it it
here used. As we have before stitcd the
timber is received in logs, and entering
the building we are first shown a large
saw which cuts the log into boards.
which are at once taken to the yard and
stacked where they remain for from six
to eight months. When the hi tuber hat
become stifllcienlly seasoned it is brought
to the mill and run through tho planer
which removes tho rough surface, from
whence it proceeds to the cut off saw and
is cut into the desired length; then to
small circular saws tar sizing It, and to
the hand inntchcs for tongulng and
grouvlng. The lumber Is now ready for
the hands of the packer who pucks it into
bundles and it is ready for shipment to

s at present not in operation, as the fruit
season is over, and the company are
now exclusively engaged in the manufac.
ory of cracker boxes. The modus op
erandi by which tho strips lrom which
the fruit baskets and boxes are made is
materially ibe same, in the primary
preparation, as that given above, with
t ie exception that the logs are cut Into
blocks 18 Inches in length and are imme
diately ready for use without seasoning.
These blocks aro then placed In
what is termed a cutting machine, where
as It slowly rerolves, a stationary knife
running parallel with the timber cuts it
into the required thickness, operating on
the same principal as a knile In the
hands ot a person paring on apple. An
ingenious device receives the lumber nt
it comes lrom tho machine cutting it
into the necessary width. The thickness
of tho material thus cut varys lrom 1 to
1-lCof an Inch, It being Intended only
for use in the manufacture of fruit bas

tively ol 30 and 00 horse-power, an clcv
ator running from the mill to tho engine
room, a distance ol probably 200 feet,
carries all the saw dust and usolcst strips
neccstary for fuel.
That portion o! the works devoted
to the manufacture of barrel-heads Is es
pecially Interesting to the visitor, becauto
of the rapidity and peculiarity ot the pro
cess by which the heads nro made. The
heading, in pieces about 18 Inches la

through a planer. Three ot ttieso aro
then placed perpendicularly In a machine
between two (lamps, which revolve,
bringing (he edge of the heading In con-
Uct with revolviug knives which rut it

Adjoining tbe engine room it several
small shops, where ill necessary repaid!
to machinery, etc., are made.
Tho value of tho immense amount ot
machinery required by the company tor
their business is $100,000, and as ad
ditions are frequently made the amount
s constantly on tho lucrease. As the
full capacity of the works has never been
tested only a rough estimate can be
given, but it is stated by the gentlemen
in charge that the enormous quantity of
40W) cracker, 60,000 fruit and berry
boxes, aad 50,000 barrel staves can be
turned out In one day, Ot fruit boxes
alone sotoe thirty varieties are
uuniilactured which are adapted
to the packing of every
known variety of small truit.aud tbe num
ber Is constantly increasing. Since the in
corporation of the company, which oo
cuired aome eight years since, their busi

promptly; from time to time making the
necessary enlargements to keep pace with

We look over our book for the nait month ivim wa Hn.i it a hev v....
the largest business month we havo bud for years. Why? Not on account ol any
increase In business generally, for everybody knows business in general Is no bet
ter than last year, We will tell why we say it.
Clothing buyers have been for tlmo immemorial asking for good goods paying
good prices therefor, and thinking they got "value received' but found they were
deceived, and you can find most of clothing buyers to-day disbelieving everything
that lsald or written about honest goods. We opened the tall campaign folly cogni
zant of the many rnmort that were afloat about the clothing business, with tbe de
termination to keep good goods, well made, and tell them at the
lowest figures, and expose the "mysteries" ot tbe
clothing trade. How well we have succeeded in the former we leave
our many customers to speak; how we have succeeded In the latter, the readers of
tho press may Judge while our hand Is In, wo will ask a favor of all our customers.
