Mussel Supply on Lower While River is Keeping Button Factory Wheels Turning. The town of Augusta, Wood ruff county, on White river, is deriving constant benefit from the button factory which fol lowed in the wake of the pearl ing industry. There are tons of mussel shells yet to be found in the White river, and it is with this raw material that the fac tory is fed. A citizen of Au gusta, in speak.ng of the enrer prise, said that from 20 to 30 persons are now employed in the button factory and that at pres ent the weekly output is valued at between $500 and $600. This, it is believed, can be readily in creased fully thrice when the protracted high water of White river recedes and enables the task of gathering shells to pro ceed without interruption. When the plant is run at its full capac ity it will furnish employment for 100 to 15o persons and turn out materials valued at some thing like $100,000 per annum. The enterprise is well and con servative! v managed and may be looked upon as a fixture in Au gusta, the experimental stage having long ago been passed successfully. There is a feature in connec tion with the button factory not to be overlooked. Not only does the plant provide profitable em ployment to a goodly number of persons, but the refuse or surplus material from the shells makes an ideal thoroughfare. In fact, the shell-paved streets of Augusta bid fair to become known far and near and to furn ish an object lesson of great value to municipalities that have paving problems to solve. The supply of mussel shells appears inexhaustible and there is always a market for the Augusta but tons, so that altogether the es tablishment of the factory there was a happy thought.—Little Rock Gazette.
