KENNETH EVANS) Keeping pace with the development in this section the Clovis Mill and Elevator company is making plans for the doubling of tho capacity of the mill or at least making it a 100 barrel mill by this time next year or by the timo the next wheat crop comes In. AlthouKh this institution is to day handling twice as much grain as any other deulcr in the state of New Mexico its capacity is not sufficient to properly care for the grain which comes to it and for that .'eason ex tensive plans are being made for the enlargment of the in stitution and the building of additional elevators in the trade territory effected by this institution. . The Clovis Mill and Elevator Company, through its maintenance of extensive markets in Clovis and general grain business, has been one of the most important factors in the encouragement of the devebpment of agricultural resources in this part of New Mexico, as well as assisting in establishing Clovis as one of the principle commercial centers of the great Southwest. The Institution has mill and elevators and other prop erty holdings in Clovis in excess it $40,000 in value and employ eight men to handle the extensive business which has been buildcd up here. Some of the moat influential and successful business men of Curry County are interested in this institution and through their management are mak ing this one of the best institutions of its kind in ths section and the entire state of New Mexico, J. W. Wilkinson, member of the real estate firm of Ramcy & Wjlkinssn, and an old resident of the city is presi dent of the mill company. He has other extensive interests in this section and is an ardent booster for civic develop ment. S. A. Jones, cashier of the Citizens Eank, and whi has gained much recognition because of his ability along business lines, is vice president of the mill company. , Lester-Stone, secretary and manager of the mill, has served five years in t'.at capacity and is an experienced mill man. Through his careful and successful management the mill has grown to its present proportions. Mr. Stone is on active member of the Chamber of Commerce and actively interested in the development of all resources in this section. The Capacity of the elevators located in Clovis is for one, 25,000 bushels, and for the other 10,000 bushels. The mill has the lutest and improved modern, equipment and while at this time its capacity is but CO barrels or 250 bush els of wheat per dny as announced in the opening paragraph of this article plans are on foot for the enlarging of the mill and making it at least a 100 barrel institution. The flour manufactured is the Sunlight, and is sold by all mer chants in Clovis. In fact the local consumer is given the ad vantage of the same grade of flour as manufactured in the mills in the Northwest country and Kansas at the same price less cost of transportation, which is á very substantial saving in usjng the home made product. In addtion to the manufacturing of flour and the hand ling of grains in a wholesale way, :.e Clovis Mill and Eleva tor Company maintains the most extensive market to be found in this section of the great southwest and is in the market at all timet for the purchase of all kinds of grains, paying the highest market prices.

In ad dition to the elevators maintained at Clovis, this institution also maintain! elevators at Farwell and San Jon.
