One of the prominent features in the -commercial interests of Newport is the large wholesale and retail business transacted bv the well-known firm of Sherman & ilrady. The business was originally started iu 1885 by the firm of Sherman & West. Soon after the death of Mr. West iu December, 1HH7, his in terests were purchased by Mr. C. N. Brady, the present junior proprietor, and the busi ness has continued under the present familiar firm name. As hinted above, this business is one of the largest and most important in the village. They occupy a mammoth building three stories In height, and 100x30 feet in di mensions just across the railroad from the depot and besides utilize three storage houses iu the vicinity, the largest of which is 2x70 feet in size for the storage of fertilizers aud other heavy goods. A wholesale business cov ering a large territory is transacted, and the firm s, products are, individually : flour, feed, grain, lime, cement, coal, sewer pipe, fertili zers, nails, agricultural implements and a few minor lines. In procuring goods the firm of Sherman & Brady enjoy the best of facilities and are in intimate relation with first bands, so that their advantages in dealing with cus tomers are of a very superior nature. They are extensive dealers in flour, although they do only custom grinding at the mills. The individual memliers of the firm are Messrs. F. M. Sherman and C. N. Brady, both of whom were formerly railroad men. Mr. Sherman, who is known bv everybody in this section, was born in Lyndon, Vt., and came to this village on the first passenger train that ever entered Newport. He was ticket agent here 211 vears and was associated with the company altogether 25 years. At present he is a trustee of the Board of Trade, vice-presi dent of the National Bank of Newport and otherwise interested in local corporations. Mr. Bradv is a native of Newhurv. Vt. Ife was connected with the railroad here alto gether about 15 years, as brakeman, conduct or, and iu the general oltices. He is one of the village trustees. This firm is looked upon as one of the solid and almost indispensible in stitutions of the community. A. R.

This well-patronized store is located in the splendid Newland & Lapler block and bin en trances upon both Main and Central streets. The business was commenced bv Mr. Flint a a wall paper and paint store in Horton's block about eight rears ago, and it was not until aliout one year ago, when be moved into bis present cniarters that he added hit present complete liue of furniture. The premises oi:. tician. Mr. Farrell was chairman of the last Democratic state convention, held at Burling ton, and is one of the most influential Demo crats in this portion of the state. It is simple justice to state that under his direction every period of six months since the Orleans Trust Co.. was organized has shown a substantial Improvement in business. The names of J. A. Proutv, Sevmour Lane mid O. C. Miller, of the board of directors, will Isa found in con vection with other sketches of Newport's largest business and manufacturing concerns, and we wish to but add that in view of the actua'lv creditable showing of the Orleans Trust Co' past history of less than four years it is safe to predict for it a mostatifying dividend-paying future.
