Installation of a grain elevator
at the Hunts Ferry warehouse,
making it possible to store grain
in bulk without the use of sacks,
is being considered by the direc
tors of that company, who hava
written to different construction
companies for plans and informa
tion. This subject wilLbe up for
consideration at the an nnal meet

It is estimated that the amount

ally cover the cost of the proposed
installation. In view of this fact
it should be an easy . matter to
promote thisventure, which will
represent a great saving to the
