New Enterprise
For Pickens.
Pickens is to have a new
manufacturing enterprise. The
Dixie Daisy Haystack Ventila
tor Co. have purchased the nec
essary machinery and will man
ufacture haystack ventilators
here. The building formerly
used by B. E. Grandy for his
planing mill near the depot, has
been secured and the plant will
begin operation about April 15.
The capacity of the plant will
be from 2400 to 4800 ventilators
a day. The article to-be manu
factured was recently invented
and patented by J. F. Harris of
Pickens, and it is said will save
twice as much hay as the old
way of saving it. It will be a
great thing for the farmers and
the cost is small.
The company is capitalized at
$10,000. The charter has been
issued and the officers are J.
McD. Bruce, president and
treasurer: J. F. Harris, vice
president and general manager,
and T. J. Mauldin, secretary
The stockholders are the presi
dent, vice president, secretary,
and R. E. [Bruce, G. A. Ellis,
W. T. Bates, I. M. Mauldin, B.
Lewis, and A. M. Morris. That
they have great faith in the
zood qualities of the ventilator
is shown by the fact that all the
stock was subscribed in three
Traveling salesmen will be
put on the road and an extensive
advertising c impaign inaugu
rated. Orders for many thous
and have already been secured.
We wish the company great
success and hope it will be the'
means of helping the farmers
?very where to realize more on
heir hay.
