The Brownsville woolen mill9 are
situated on Mill street, and consist of
the factory proper, a large and com

height, fully equipped tor the manu

blankets, flannels, caehmeres, tweeds,
and also lap and buggy robes. Sur

dye house, two large warehouses for
the storage of wool, and the general
office building, the front rooms being
used as a packing department, and the
rear building stocked with a complete
line cf samples of the company's ffoods,
which have gained a world-wide repu

been awarded a gold medal at the
World's Fair at Xew Orleans. There
are emnloyed in the various depart

pay roll for the operatives amounting
to over $24,000. This is Irrespective of

river, across which a dam has been
built, turning almost the entire river
into a race and conducting the water
to the mill, giving an inexhaustible
supply. Surrounding and in near
proximity to the mill are the dwellings
of the operatives, and the observer will
be struck with the general air of neat
