progressive, healthful and fast growing towns of the State. With a
population of 16,000 it has a number of varied, extensive and prosperous
industries including the greatest Brass Manufacturing plant in the
world, and large manufactories of Machinery, Hardware, Needles, Ice and
Roller Skates, etc., with an annual pay-roll of near $4,000,000. Sound
Banks with ample capital and liberal management. Largest and best
mercantile houses in the county.

service, gas and electric lights, good steam and electric railroad
connections and freight accommodations. Efficient school and church
advantages and live, active Business Mens' Association ready to invite
