Estey Carriage Co.s' Changes.
The Estey Carriage Co. is moving the one
story bulldlui? which lias been standing on
the south side of the Corunna road next to
the railway track to a new position west of
the main building and north of tbe screen
door factory. When in the new position
the building will be enlarged by tbe ad
dition of another story.
The company is rearranging its office
space and will use tbe front room on the
west side of the entrance for a general
office. Office quarters have been rather
crowded and the change will make the
management of the company's business
much more convenient as well as pleasanter.
At Estey Factory B.
One of the large new planers recently or
dered for tbe Estey factory 13 has arrived
aud was set up and put at work yesterday.
The factory is rushed with work aud last
week turned out six hundred and slxtj
suits. Eight new carving machines which
have been added lately and the new planers
together, considerably increase the output.
This factory is turning out some very hand
some goods and its designs for the fall and
winter trade are proving justly popular.
No sooner, however, was work fairly beguu
on the fall styles than O. 13. Estey, who
does tbe designing himself for this factory,
began work on the patterns for January,
which he intends shall eclipse all past de
signs. At the Ann AfJor Railway Shops.
A second boiler has been set up at the
car shops. It will be used chiefly for heat
ing, but will be connected up so tliat it
can be used also for power.
The work of putting in steam pipes for
heating has been begua, and the coming
winter will aee stoves dispensed with in the
machine shop and in the wood working
mill, and the more comfortable and con
venient steam pipes in use. Tbe other
buildings will probably not be piped until
The brake Instruction room is now nearly
ready. In fact it is ready for the brakes
themselves, which are furnished free of
charge by the Westinghouse company.
This oompany sends thirteen brakes one
engine brake, one tender, one passenger
and ten freight car brakes, over five hun
dred dollars worth in all. W. Barnes, who
has charge of all brake work is expecting
the arrival of this machinery daily.
A large new sky light is to be placeQ in
the roof over the engine room and brake
The usual number of locomotives are be
ing overhauled in the machine shop and the
work of building box cars is being continu
ed in the carpenter shop, though a few
bumpers to guard the ends of switches, and
some baggage trucks have also been turned
Outgrowing their Quarters.
Copas & Son have so increased their
business that their large establishment on
Water street has already become too
small for them. They will in the near
future take measures to better their condi
tlon, though they may not feel prepared to
carry out their complete plans this fall.
At all events work will soon be com
menced on a large ice house about 40x60
feet or over. This will be built in the rear
of the buildings now in use, on the bank of
the river, and will be one added convenl
ence and necessity.
If everything works as well as they hope
for, however, a four story brick addition
will be built south of the large brick build
ing now in use, taking up the space be
tween this building and the Thomas apple
dryer. This additional room is most need
ed of all, and if built would allow the space
in the building to be used much more
economically. The fourth floor would be
UBed for the poultry trade, the third for
making and storing shipping boxes and
crates, while the first and second floors
would be used for the pork business with
cold storage facilities in connection.

and devotion to the church.
For a number of years she has been a suf
ferer from rheumatism and her sufferings
were further increased in May of the pres
ent year by a stroke of paralysis, from
which she never fully rallied. For the last
few weeks she has been continually failing
aud was unconscious for several days pre
ceding her death. On Tuesday, however,
her mind cleared up and she recognized her
