Another i"ature of Importance and i.roat Commercial Value to Plymouth ami Vicinity. In giving an epitome of the numer ous manufacturing enterprises in our beautiful city, we would neglect an im. portant feature of our progressiveres, if we failed to note the enormous busi ness transacted by Swindell Pros. These gentlemen have now one of the most complete cold storage buildings to be found in any city the size of Ply mouth, in the United States. Their place of business is on the corner of Walnut and (larro streets, and a large new brick structure graces the spot, 00 xTO and three stories in height, with a basement under the entire structure. The greater portion of the first and second floor is taken up for their storage room occupying a space of KJXoO. In the front of the Hist lloor is the busi ness ollice, and on the second lloor the shipping department is located, and at the time of our visit, contained hun denls to turkeys and chickens ready for shipment. On the first lloor, the ccld storage rooms are ulitized principally for storing eggs, a regular temperature of 'AO de grees being kept. In the basement are commodious rooms where the fowls are kept a ter being dressed, and frozen be. fore shipment. Ou the first lloor is a large loom be tween the elevator and the storage de partment, that is exclusively for the examination of eggs both be fore being placed into storage previous to shipment. This department is handled by experts. When the eggs are shipped they are separa ed into two different lots. Leaving the new build ing we went into the old structure which is now utilized for the handling of the live fowls, preparing them for market, and the creamery department. While in this part of the building we looked in on some twelve or fifteen men and boys who were picking turkeys anu chickens. In this department they handle about four turkeys a minute. The creamery operated by this linn, has built up an enviable reputation and the butter turned out by '.hem, enters a ready market. This department does not run during t lie winter, hut in the summer is crowded to its fullest capac- ity. To give an idea of the enormous bus mess done by this firm, only necessitates the statement that they are shipping at the present time two car loads of their produce every week. While their pay roll is not as large as other institutions, being only S2O0.0-) per mouth, yet they scatter broadcast throughout the sur rounding country every year, the large sum of 100,000 to 10,000, which goes directly to the homes of the producers. Such institutions as that conducted by the Swindell Pr. s., is of great bene fits to our city, and it is with pleasure that we in as bri?f a manner as possible outline a few of the important feitures '.'onnected with this rapidly growing in dustry in PIvmouth. l-!i' in Iloiiii' Tim! It is said that at Rochester the mer chants have became indignant over the distribution of considerable advertising matter calling the pubLc's attention to "baigam day" at Chicago. Jt isiurther stated that the Chicago V: Erie Pailroad has advertised an excursion to the city on these days. The business men in formed the company through their agent Hut if th-s excursions were not culled oil', they would discontinue patronizing that road. The result of the tin at has not yet been given out. A I'ianu I .iclniy. It is rumored that a factory for the manufacture of the Cottage piano is soon to be built in this city by W. S. Hills, of Warsaw. Mr. Hills said this morning tint arrangements were about completed and that he expected soon to be actively at woik with a force of skilled workmen. (J round has been offered him as a bonus conditional up on the erection of a brick building and the operation of a factory for a stated length of time. Arv larii-l Again. The Chicago Tribune says Jula Harmon of this city who married Pose Powly of Laingsburg, Mich., twenty live years ago ami who sixteen years later secured a divoico was again mar ried to his former wife yesterday, the twenty-lilth anriversary of their first wedding day. We are glad to get this information where a Plyniouthite, hav ing departed from the straight and nar row way, lias returned to the way of the righteous and the (Jodly. Ill'ltT. Last night about sundown at Ham let, about 14 miles west of this city, John McClellan, while attempting to couple some cars, was injured in the left breast and right shoulder. As soon as lie was found he was brought to this city and Dr. Wilson was immediately called, who dressed the injuries and held him over for the limited passenger train when the doctor accompanied him to Ft. Wayne. He will probably recover. ( loan tli Walk-. While our city council is working out important measurts for the benefit of the city, it would not be amiss for them to pass an ordinance regarding the cleaning of sidewalks. One of the serious inconveniences that confront ; our.citizens after a snow storm, is the j enormous amount of frozen snow and ice that accumulates upon our thorough tin's. It is a matter that, as a rule, is rigidly enforced m the greater majority of towns as large as Plymouth. When the snow plow used by the street com- ! missioner has been brought into service, although of considerable benefit, it leaves a ridge in the center of the walk, and when the weather moderates and thaw ingand freezmgeommence, pedestrians are in a great many instances compelled to take the middle of the stieet, to in sure their salty in going to their busi ness and returning home. We believe the council should take some action in this matter. I NUIHljiy's Mils Mt'flilli; Yesterday afternoon at 3:30 ended the continuous temperance meeting held in this city under the auspices of the Y's. This meeting was held in the opera house and wa? greeted by a large turn out. Mr. Dunn, of Mil waukee, who has been delivering these lectures, is a man widely noted as an evangelist along this line of work. lie is a lluent speaker and presents his ar guments in a manner entirely different from the majority of temperance work ers. It must be acknowledged that the reception extended to Mr. Dunn by those who are supposed to be interested in his line of work, was very lukewarm. "Actions speak louder than words" is a saying that has in decades past borne the closest scrutiny, and in this case has c '- forth no little comment. Ili.l Not .- It in Th.tt Mulit. Over at Waivaw resides a man b' the name of .leroiue Kein, who several days ago had his wife arrested on the charge of assault and battery. It was learned at the irial Hint .Jerome had a fashion of loading up en "tamerack,"' and when he would arrive at his domicle, had a fashion of sobering up by exercisi.ig on his wife's anatomy. Put Jerome tried his little performance once too often, and his better half rose up in her reighteous indignation, and smote him over the pate with a good sized stick, which causnl the elevation of a hat rack on his head. After due rellection over the way he had been treated, he resorted to law. While the evidence showed con clusively, that his wife had bumped his head, the jury discharge the long pa tient wife. Will !.-t u iv The people of this city are to have a treat at the Presbyterian church Friday night w hich will be all the moredeiight ful on account of personal acquaintence with the talented speaker.

Finest srvic in tli täte In speaking of improvements we can but turn with a feeling of pride to the service given our people by the Ply mouth Telephone Exchange. When this enterprise was first under contem plation, it was considered to be an uncall ed for and expensive undertaking, but since the service has b en lunched, and especially under the m inagement of Mr. C. A. Pteve, the benefits to be de rived have been augmented by the numerous customers that have had in struments placed not only in their busi ness houses, but private residences. At the present time the en' ire system has beenrenova ed.newtransmittersuti i.ed and every thing possible to facilitate ex cellent service and satisfaction to its numerous patrons, have been applied. In conversation with manager Peeve we learn that at the present time VAA in struments are in use m Plymouth, which does not take into consideration the twenty in use at Argos. One im portant feature of our sen ice is that we are in connection with every town of any importance throughout the county. During the late snow storm and sleet that 1 ell in abundance, not a w ire of this excellent service became crossed, and no delay whatever orginated by the in clemency of the weather. Our people are to be congratulated upon our tele phone system, which without a doubt is far ahead of any service given to cities of the size of Plymouth. Inli iimaii CoimIim tor. Conductor Lindell, of the South Chi cago trolley line, is, if reports be true, a lit subject for the cat-o'-nine-tails, the pillory, the stocks, the steel maiden or a bucket of tar and leal hers. When a car, whether it be street or trans conti nental, is snow bound in bitter co'd weather, and the regular supply of fuel is exhausted with no prospect of re lief the passengers are certainly jus tified in using seats, floor mats and whatever is at hand that may be con verted into fuel. With the dreary prospect of a night of exposure and particularly after authorities in the matter nave refused to send relief we believe the liberty loving people of a great anil sovereign sta'e would justi fy the passengers m either burning tin- car seats or killing the conductor. Hut in this case the conductor said: "get out m the storm and walk or sit here and shiver" and the people sat and shivered and were chilled to the bone' and nearlv frozen until they left the car benumbed and tpuiking with cold. A Skt'lrlii: I'oiiua. Tuesday at Farmland, Ind., while workmen were clearing up a piece of timbered land near the Dele ware and Henry county line whic'i was badly wricked by a wind storm about four teen years ago they found a human skeleton imbeded among the bodies ol several uprooted trees. Near skeleton was a metallic clasp and rim of pocket book, iiso several pieces of silver money, while directly under the skele ton was found a long br i.-s rule used by lumbermen in measureing lumber, with the letters .!."' plainly cut :i one end. The finding of the skeleton has icvived and ii' doubt furnishes a solu tion to a mystery that excited the peo ple of Oikvilie, a to --mi near by, for yens at tee the storm. The Ian li"id of the village hotel at that time received a litter from a Chicago lumber lirni ask ing for information concerning oic 1 -n jainm tinswo'il, who had been sent to that place to purchase lumber in the trees. The landlord replied that ajoiing man remained all night at Iiis house but after payjng his bill left early next morning, as he thought, for the depot to catch a train, lie made his business known to no one, consequently no trace of him could be found, even by some relatives who art erwards visited Oak villeand made a thorough investigation, ilis mysterious disappearance was never connected with the storm that almost destroyed Oakville and many other surrounding towns, but many be lieved that ho was secretly making ex plorations through the lands, inspecting timber, when the storm began and tak ing shelter under some trees, lost his life. Every etfort will bo made to find the address of the persons who com municated with the Oakville landlord fourteen years ago and the facts un earthed yesterday will be made known. Liwnwtl to Vel.

Since ISVA presidents of the Tinted States have appointed the last Thurs day of November of each year as a day of national thanksgiving in return for the preservation of the nation and the countless blessings that have come to a free and independent people. The pres ident's proclamation is supplemented by the proclamation - of the governors of states and so ihe great national fes tival, inaugurated by the Pil'jrims at Plymouth nearly lour centuries aro is pei petuated. The authority of t!:e civil govern ment to appoint such a it-ast was for mally recognized by the Kpiscopal church m 17s'.. but the : aiue recogni tion was not vouchsated by the I Ionian Catholic church until lss, almost a century later and over a cent in y alter a national thanksgiving day had been recognzed by Congress. Thanksgiv ing, as an annual harvest festival and legalized holiday, in conception, per petuation and observance is pun Ivan American institution calculated to lift a great nation for a day from its selfish pursuits and gives it an opportunity to see in the retrospect of a past year that, with the toiling and moiling of the millions, there have been showered upon it a thousand blessings hitherto unrecognized or not acknowledged. On this day the toiler ceases from his labor. The day comes to him as one of rest and recreation. It is a day of feasting from ocean to ocean, from the ice bound North to the sunny South there is the deep and heartfelt con sciousness of l-cing thankful for all that has made these things possible. Peneath all the festivities and mani festations of rejoicing that will charac terize the day tomorrow, will beat the great, warm, throbbing, patriotic Amer ican .heart and the thankfulness of a nation will be expressed and apparent in every city, village and hamlet and at every country fireside along u) the highways and byways of this broad land and by the token of the turkey gobbler the na'ional thanksgiving day shall be known both far and wide. What shall we be thankful nr'f IJeas ous, like the leaws of a mighty forest, are inniinu iab!e. Fach oj us has cause for thanks for the preservation of life, for lootl, fi r cloihing, protection 0f home and those that are dear to us, shelter and what not. We may be thankful that we are not under the rule of a Sultan, that we are not ground down and trodden upon by a despot. We may be thankful that we arc not millionaires. We may be thankful for the reign of national peace and prosperity and plenty by which t he year past lias been characterized. If the measure of our desires has not been tilled to oversow ing we may still be thankful for the things we have received and a few moments rellection will disclose to most of us many such things to be thankful for. Let us re joice and be thankful. j It is a very di Hit-nit in ttter to always j tell the exact fact regarding local j happening, especially in a small town j with a daily paper.
