A I.irge Cruwil In A'Sendanrr and 3tnch lntrrrt Mnt.IIV-.Uil. A large meeting of mcmbors cf this society, and others interested in Horti culture, gathered at the Court House Saturday afternoon last. President Murray was in tho chnir and D. W. Thu ma acted as secretary. The meetiug having assembled for the" especial purpose of discuisir.g plans for-8.-curing a canning factory here, Mr. Potter of Beemer, Neberaska, was called upon to give his views on the subject, which he did in a fair, candid manner. The advantages to be desired, he stated. , .... ere mat sucn nu u.u,r., muTt for all tho surplus fruit and veg- lhe TOmwBnitv. That much of th.s ia often wasted because a market cannot bo found for small surpluses except througu such an establishment as this. A factory capable ot turning out 10, C00 cans per rfav would giveemp'synsSnt to ViO to 200 bovs and girls who would earn from SI to'SG per woek.-besidea tbe. I large number who would be engagcu in pacKing rruu auu gamencg veKiuu.c- Jf orcliaroa ana garaeus. Ttm ivKt nf kiii-Ii n factory would be about S8.000, which Mr. Potter proposed Bhould b made up- ot KQ shares of which the citizens of this community should own a majority, tliat they might control it. . Mr. Totter was favorably impreesea with tho location of this town and the country surrounding it. It is the best location, all things considered, he had act with. He saw that wo naa nearly enough fruit now to give steady worl for such a factory during the time it could be run and that much more could, easily be produced. Tho distance from the railroad station was no oosincie. ua but few such factories could ever secure locations on a railroad track at a favor able point for shipment.
