Owosso Mfg. Co.
The factory started up Monday with
nearly twice as large a force as in usually
employed the first week, a hopeful sign for

Last week while digging the pit for the

not take It all out, thus giving some idea of
the size of the vein of water which was
During the shut down Engineer Andrew
Jackson has made a number of changes
which greatly increase the efficiency of the
steam producing plant. The building is
heated with exhaust steam which Is re
turned to the feed heater by drip pipes.
Here it warms the feed water, which, with
the water from the condensed steam, Is
pumped back Into the boilers. By rearrang
ing the drip pipes, increasing their capacity
and removing all unnecessary valves, Mr.
Jackson has secured feed water at the tem
perature of 193 degrees. As soon as a few
other changes are made which are now
nearly ready he expects to secure feed water
at a uniform temperature of about 200 de
grees. Estey Factories.
The report published In one of the city
papers that the Estey factory B bas been
shut down for about thaee weeks was away
off. The factory is runding, has been run
ning, and has orders on hand sufficient to
assure any one that It it will continue to
run for more than one or two weeks In the
future. The report probably started rom
the fact that In order to clear out a lot of
stock which had accumulated in different
parts of the shop, the stock cutters had been
running light until the other machines
should have a chance to clear the floors but
these also are now running with full force.
Next week however, the factory will proba

The work of setting up the two new boil

The Robblns Table Co. will start np their
factory again, Monday, and hope to keep
the wheels moving without further Interrup
