One of the bits of publicity Barton getting with the location of its .1 from the Burlington daily free new industries is the following Tak press. It gives the Public More idea of this piano action manufacturing business than anything yet published. The article says Wessell Nickle amp Gross a new York firm manufacturing the highest Grade piano actions in the world working the Small Maple pieces that enter into the action the one thousandth part of an Inch has purchased a Mill property in Barton and plans build a dry Kiln in the town As soon As the first Frost is out of the found. The firm is capitalized at 50,000, but has a surplus of nearly .1,000,000. It is already buying Maple logs and will saw them out in its Mill. The company expects employ at least 50 men and May have double that number by the Winter of 1920. Other developments Are planned during the summer. The firm will use about 600,000 feet of lumber a year. A it is understood that this firm employs about 500 hands altogether and plans bring its business Back the pre War basis when it had fully 700 hands employed. It is planning make Wood novelties from the waste 3 Mills. Although no definite statement has been made in the matter it is thought that the company intends eventually move its entire business Barton keeping Only an assembling storage and shipping station in new York., the town of Tarton Grants the company a Low electric Power rate exemption from taxation and a Small water Concession is granted by the Village. It is said that this firm Sells Only the highest Grade piano makers. Its cheapest action is higher by considerable than the highest Grade action made by any other concern. The business was established by the elder Wessell Nickle amp Gross 47 years ago the founders being deceased at this time. A a number of towns in the state were trying get this firm locate within their boundaries. Or. Wessell one of the firm members stated that the main reason for its leaving new York was get next the Timber farm Bureau notes Lime begin ii Roll into this congregational Church notes. Rev. J. J. Hutchinson pastor sunday feb. 8th. 10.30, morning service. 11.45, sunday school. 6.00 p. M., Christian Endeavor. Evening service at 7 of clock. All seats free. Bible study on thursday evening at 7.30. Rev. E. G. French will occupy the pulpit sunday morning. During the next two or three weeks a a Large number of Farmers in this county will be kept Busy unloading the cars of Lime. The manager of tie Farmers Exchange reports that he has recently sent in two different Lime concerns orders for 460 tons of Lime. A few Farmers Are ordering Lime direct and local dealers and fertilizer agents will doubtless handle some Lime so that the tonnage fled in this county this year will run Well Over the 500-ton Mark. This situation Speaks Well for the work of the farm Bureau. Due the Hearty cooperation of a group of interested farm Bureau committeemen Over 40 Farmers out of the 100 or More have been persuaded use Lime that otherwise would not have done so. Ten out of the 13 Lime and Clover committeemen in the county have reported that Over 200 tons of Lime would be used As the result of their efforts. The tonnage used this year should be but the beginning. With Over 100,000 acres of land in crops in Orleans county we can afford use thousands of tons of Lime in the next few years. More Clover and less purchased feed will be the result. Every town in the county will use some Lime but the town of Glover leads with a total of 79 tons. Greensboro a close second will use 56 tons. The Large tonnage be used in Glover is due the work of the farm Bureau committeemen h. S. Clark c. F. Wright and b. R. Buchanan. These men have thought Lime talked Lime and boosted Lime. Its up some other Community now pass that record. This Lime project of the farm Bureau will not be finished until a majority of the Farmers of this county Are using Lime As a regular part of their farming operations.

Rowell Praid As hotel pub heist what about Lime distributors with All this Lime coming into the county it might be Well consider methods of distributing this on the land. Many have used the shovel or hand method in the past but this method is slow laborious and far from satisfactory due the uneven distribution. Some men have used a manure spreader Good advantage by first putting in a layer of manure and then spreading so Many bags of Lime evenly Over the floor depending on the number of loads per acre at which the spreader is set. Even this Way is not wholly satisfactory. To obtain really Good results some sort of a distributor is necessary. There Are a number of types of these machines on the Market. One Type that has Given very Good service has a movable Bottom and Side so that when the machine is in operation the Bottom slowly rises forcing the Lime out of the Hopper Over one Side. There is no possible Chance of clogging in this Tje. Another make is the Ordinary Lime and fertilizer distributor covering a space eight feet wide when in operation. Still another and somewhat novel Type of distributor is attached the end of any Wagon body and drives from a sprocket on the Wagon wheel. This spreads material 16 feet and can handle up 30 or 40 tons a Day. Detailed information has been received at the farm Bureau office in regard a few of these machines and efforts Are being made at present learn More concerning the other makes on the Market. At the present Price of labor Farmers cannot afford spread Lime with a shovel or by hand say nothing of tee uneven distribution. These machines Cost from $55 $90 apiece. Two or three Farmers living near each other could very handily use one machine Between them. The various Lime and Clover committeemen in this county Are kept supplied with information concerning these various distributors. Anyone interested will do Well get in touch with one of these men or notify the farm Bureau of care affords Little sensation governor takes stand sex the trial of sex gov. Horace f. Graham of Craftsbury on the charge of larceny and embezzlement of state funds while he was state auditor is on its third week. Little sensation is afforded by the testimony which is often of a technical nature. One of the principal state witnesses was the present auditor of accounts Benjamin Gates. said or. Graham did not notify him of overdrafts when he succeeded Graham As auditor. When the matter was brought grahams attention Graham said he would fix it up. Asked Why he made these overdrafts. Gates testified that or. Graham said he had do it save himself from bankruptcy and that c. S. Page was the Man who was crowding him. On the stand or. Graham denied a Many be reorganized on still larger scale. There is a movement now on foot reorganize the a scamp West Moro and place it on a firmer financial basis. The Camp is at the present time in a somewhat Uncertain condition financially and without a manager As Russell g. Bancroft will not continue his work there this year. As a Camp a West More is Ideal. People who Are familiar with the summer Camps in the country agree that there is no More Beautiful spot in America no More desirable location for a summer Camp and nowhere better buildings and equipment than those found Here.

Here Are found the reception room office study rooms and the living quarters of the instructors. Just Back of this is a Large open Pavilion used for dining Hall and Assembly room and a great perfectly equipped Kitchen. Extensive grounds provide ample opportunities for All kinds of Oul door sports. The Lake at this Point is Well suited accommodate both the expert swimmers and the younger beginners. During the first year of the Campos life Only about 30 girls were accommodated and in spite of what seemed in every Way Ideal surroundings Many went away not feeling satisfied. The Camp director was miss Laura Joll a very efficient English woman who has proved her ability in such a Canadian Camps and schools. Plans Are already being made for the Success of the Camp this year. It is hoped that Charles h. Dudley of Hanover n. May be Able take the management in charge and Endeavor place the a scamp Westmore on a More substantial financial foundation and run it in an efficient Way. It is believed that the Camp might have from 100 200 girls there next Sumer. Or. Dudley is an excellent business Man and has had Large experience in Camps throughout the country. At the present time he does the advertising for about 40 thriving summer Camps for which he is personal advisor and outfitter.
