This company lias in the compara

without ostentation or public aid,
huilt up a manufacturing phut out

paying out at least twenty thousand
dollars per milium in wages. Had
any n:w linn offered to establish n
manufacturing business of such mag
nituile in this city a bonus of at least
S10,ihi() would have been asked as an
inducement and a brass land would
have been employed to 3how the pub

nothing, and has built up in a day, so
to speak, a business that is not cn'y
a credit to them but also lo tiie city.
It shows what can bo done by enter

This eompi'iy is woiking about 12"
men in the prison in addition to Ihe
help employed on the putside and is
doing a very large business, at least
S2o0.(iou annually. e hope to sec
them prosper and expand as the ycirs
roll on, and would be giau to see
their example followed by others
who could no doubt utilize more labor
than can be secured in the prison.
