A NEW INDUSTRY
FOR HOOD RIVER
Tbo Hood Hiver Artificial Stone
Co. is the latest, enterprise to las
numbered among our industries. E.
vV. Paarz, a Pennsylvania man and an
expert in the manufacture of con
crete work, believes Hood Hiver is a
good field for the manufacture of this
product and has established a plant
hero. He has associated with him in
this venture, A. W. and W. L. Mar
klo, who will assist in looking after
tho atlairs connected with the busi
ness, it is tho intention of this coin
pauy to manufacture oonorete chim
ney blocks, foundation and retaining
walls and also sewer and Irrigation
pipe. Mr. Paarz tolls us that no finer
ma orial can be had than concrete
for chimneys; that there is absolutely
no danger from defective flne and
the general appearance la more sub
stantial and finished than when con
structed of any other material. The
blocks for foundations are also band
some in appearauco and are noted for
their strength and durability. In re
gard to price as compared to other
materials, Mr. Panrz informs us that
it will be produced at less expense to
tbe consumer than either brick or
stone, and that this work bag become
quite popular in tbe East.
Tbo chimney blocks can be laid by
tbo purchaser, as it requires no par
ticular skill for this part of the work,
aud the company will instruct all pat
rons how they should be laid, or a
man from the plant will Jay them at a
The pla it Is located on tbe Oregon
Lumber Co s. mill site, near the terry
landing. Temporary quarto's have
been erected for the present, but it is
the purpose of the company to en
large and erect permanent quarters as
soon as possible. Mr. Paarz and W.
L. Markle and are now engaged in
getting out a few samples which will
be placed In a prominent location in
town, where all may examine them, as
there is no work of this kind in town.
The plant is of course iu its infan
cy, but if onr people foster it a little
it will no doubt develop into a flour
All persons desiring this work done
should leave their orders as soon as
possible, as the plant at present is
somewhat hampered in tbe temporary
quarters aud therefore more time is
required to Mil orders.
The foundation blocks are hollow in
order to eliminate ali dampness, aud
tbe process through which they are
manufactured gives them great hard
ness and stability. Three designs are
made plain, panel faoe and rook face,
and when pluced in position and
pointed, present a veiy attractive ap
pearance. T he memtars of tbe new firm would
be pleased to bsve any parties inter
ested in this kind of work visit them
at their works and see bow the pro
. duct is manufactured.
