If there is any one branch of indus- 
try that tends to the building up and 
prosperity of .a town, it is a good 
mill. The mill in question covers an 
area of 16,000 feet, is 14 horse power, 
and was erected in 1880. The capaci- 
ty of this mill is 20 barrels of flour 
and 150 bushels of meal a day. It 
lias two bull's, corn and wheat, is two 
stories high, and has ail the necessa- 
ry and latest improved machinery; 
It is conveniently located near the 
railroad, and is a great credit to 
Pembroke indeed. They employ a 
German miller, Mr. Leppla, a gen- 
tleman who has had 18 years’ expe- 
rience in the milling business, with 
Mr. AV. Hollis as general superin- 
tendent. Aside from this, Mr. AV. 
Hollis gives attention to the under- 
taking business, and is the only un- 
dertaker in Pembroke. He also 
deals in furniture, of which he car- 
ries a large stock, and has been en- 
gaged in this line since the year 1870. 
He is a practical mechanic and is 
thoroughly posted in all tho depart-

This firm lias been in operation 
since 1864. It was tho first house of 
the kind built in Pembroke, and Was 
erected and run under the firm 
name of Slaughter, Jameson & Rust. 
These works cover an area of 7020 
square feet, in which t hey handle 
400 hogsheads per year, 200 of strips 
anil 200 of export leaf. They give 
employment to 40 hands during the 
stemming season, and at one time 
were among the largest buyers of to- 
bacco on the Hopkinsville market, 
and Pembroke is the only point out- 
side of Hopkinsville where tobacco is 
handled in this form. They get the 
Clarksville type of tobacco, and after

Statistics show that the people of this 
oouutry consume about four aud one- 
half pounds of cheese per napita, while 
the peoplo of England consume about 
fourteen pounds per capita annually. 
The argument that cheese is not a whole- 
some article of food, it wonld seem, 
would not hold good in the light of this 
fact, as the agricultural classes of En- 
gland, who are large consumers of 
cheese, are among the most robust and 
healthy people of tho world.

A German manufacturer has succeed- 
ed in producing serviceable face masks 
of mica, for the protection of metal and 
glass inciters, stone masons and other 
workmen exposed to heat, dust and nox-

eyes to ho turned in any direction, and 
there is space enough for spectacles, in 
case the eyesight is defective. _ _
