stock is owned almost exclusively in this city, and the company
has made arrangements

50 X 150 this year. The factory
give employment to a number of men.
Albaugh stove and oven is an improvement on all others in that
line, in that it burns
gasoline than any other and retains more of the heat, tests showing
that it will do in
minutes in the way of baking what it required another stove and
oven an hour to do.
stoves will be manufactured in aluminum and black enamel and
will be placed on the
as soon as possible. The stockholders are all enthusiastic over
the institution and
it will be one of Shelby's largest factories in a few years.
