Muhi;;an St. Cell 211 ihonea: Home 6 140 The year just about the close has brought no great changes to Mish awaka; tlie city h;us moved steadily towards tht- goal which it is the am bition of every city to aspire to. The factories have all had a good year ami it speaks volumes for some of Ihem to be aide to say that they are running over-time at present and employing more hands than at this time a year a no. That tho city is becoming better known each year on t'ae industrial map is evident from the number of new firms which aire making Mish awaka a trading point. The idea that tho city, is too near South Fend to ever become nreat. is being gradually dispelled.; it manufactures a lint- of goods peculiar to itself, and many of thse are not duplicated on the con tinent . The city is in a prosperous condi tion; hard times aire scarcely felt here, and the banks have more money on deposit than they have ever had on any previous Now Year. Tho city's various enterprises are :ill in a nour ishing condition; they have all had an exceptionally good year, and tho pros pects for FJ15 are brighter than any previous year in the history of the city. As was pointed out in these columns a few days ago, the Woolen Co., the biggest industrial institution in the city, is busier than it has ever been previously; is working full time, oc casionally over-time, and has an in creased force of workmen. The Per!: ins windmill Co. has dur ing the year just closed, opened up new agencies in every country in tho world, and the Perkins windmill has become one of tho best known ar ticles in every country of the world to which representatives of the concern aire sent. The Dodge Co., although not so busy at present, are preparing for a record year's business in 1915, while every other Mishawaka indus try is preparing1 for an exceptionally busy l'Jl5. Retail lJu-iiioss (Jood. The retail business Ikls also main tained a good yoair over 1913. New stores halve been opened; and all of them are doing well, while the retail business on the whole has exceeded any previous year. This is accounted for by tho fact that Mishawakans are doing their trailing at home to a greater extent than ever previously in tho history of the city. The two business men's organiza tions are out for now business all tho time, and have, during tho past 12 months, landed one or two factories for the city. Mishawakai is a greait lodge town and eat eh of the different organiza tions report am increase in member ship. Tho business at the railway stations has almost doubled in capacity, while the improvements on roads, etc., havo amounted to many thousands of dol lars. Action is Rig Gift. Appropriate to the Christmas tide, Mtshawaikai can consider the action of the common council of Monday night, Dee. 21, as one of the best and most desiraible gifts of the year, when the city fathers adopted a plan whereby they will comply with the demands of the Carnegie library commission which will make ai library building for Mishaiwakat a probability. To every public spirited organization of the city this action was considered one of tlie biggest happenings during tho year. Tho avetion of the com:oil three nights before Christmas eve. granted a request of a committee composed of members of the Mishaiwail a Wo man's club and the Men's Civics leaigue asking that the city guarantee to fur nish an amnual maintainainco fund equal of tho amount of tlie appropria tion of the Cairneige commission for a library structure in Mishaiwaka. PotoHicr Bi lmprocmcnt. A $ j .". 00 postoihce building was by far the largest imp:ocment for Mishaiwaka during the year. On March l." t ho Th; mas Cissel Contract ing Co. began the construction of the new federal building. Wi'-h a large force of men and with no serious de lays the building ha now almost patched completion. Tlie exterior work has been finished with the ex ception of a few minor details, and a force of expert tinishers aire now put ting tho fin aT touches to the interior. It is expected thait the building will bo ready for use some time during the month of March. The estimated cost of the structure is placed at $;.", Oo; the -round Slo.oeii, making the total $80,000. Fuilding operations In Mishawaka came up to tho standard through the heavier contracts of the year. Resi dence buildings and improvements fell short, ailthough several residences costing over $2,i00 were- built during the eair. Maireh led in the activities by several thousand dollars. Febru ary was tho lowest with only one per mit 'sued for an improvement to the amount of $12. The totail amount of building improvement for the year was about $lS2,:;oo. Ranking among the more important imptovements wais tho construction of tho concrete retaining waill by tho eity aibmg the property of the south race. This improvement cost in the neigh borhood of $1,4 00. This work was done entirely by the city.

A new smoke-stack and boiler room ''juipmer.t Wire the onlv big improve ment at tho i.'.4nt of the Mishawaka Woolen Manufacturing Co. this year. This imprin t tia nt cost several thoL:s ands of dollars. Although a great amount of work wa accomplished !o" the vater works di-pairtment of the city the new east end water wur'ij plant, the amount of money spent in the c- sum work Is t.itLiuu.twd at CL&sufer? All of the improvem work at the plaint was done Uy tL- city, no out side assistance being called in. Mr. Kline, superintendent of the depart ment, was in full charge of the en gineering work. Through the work at the plant it is very probable ti:at Mishawaka will have an abundant supply of pure water some time dur ing the spring. Recently the board of public works on the recommenda tion of Mr. Kline, decided that a new pumping engine be purchased and ad vertised for. It is expected that some action along this line will he taken at the next meeting of the hoard next Monday morning. The expenditures will amount to about $12,000. Works Roaird Iiiiproxement..
