The new company was capitalized at which was considered to be the actual value of the plant, but with the debts of the old company saddled upon it as they were, and with Mr. Frost, owner of one half the steck and secre tary of the new company, engaged in other business in Defiance, Ohio, and unable by reason of his distance from this business and the limited attention he was able to give to it the stock com pany had many difficulties to contend with from the beginning. The debts have been a burden and the lack of harmony and strained in ternal business relations have so hand icapped the company that it is really surprising that it has continued so long without some vigorous tstochange o b im i j: v.'.i c.h round ed having been made. The manufactured product of this company is first class in every respect, and has always lound ready sale. The Plymouth wagon is said to be one ol the best, strongest, lightest running and most durable wagons in the market, and there lias never been a time since these wagons were manufactured that the product of the factory could not be sold faster than made. The indebted ness of the company is now about !?'.,000, and the assets, figured at fiO per cent, of the value of the plant and stock, are nearly 15,000. There is no doubt that it w nild bring this sum of money at forced sale. Wo trust, how ever, t hat it will not be necessary to make such a sale. There is no doubt that with the proper reorganization and a linn, systematic business man agement the stock can be made to pay large dividends. The company owns six acres of ground and tho plant is splendidly equipped with tho very best of modern nun hirery. There is now in stock almost enough material for the manufacture of &U0 complete wagons, which if I'Liu!'; up and sold, would re turn enough ready casn to pay the ex penses of their manufacture and pay oil' tlio indebtedness of tho company.

The lecture was given under the auspices of the V. 31. C.A. and a generous collection was re ceived at the conclusion for the benefit of the organization.

When the news came that Lincoln had been assassinated the prev.ous night, a carpenter was driving a nail into a piece of moulding over the window and it had penetrated about one half its length. He left the job unfinished and the nail remains as it was to this day.
