The Sheldon Manufacturing com
pany is Just completing a very busy
season of manufacturing hog crates,
which have gone out to breeders in
all parts of the country. In addition,
the past few weeks. of open weath
er have brought many orders for the
popular one-man concrete mixer,
another Sheldon product that is gain
ing favor each year. These mixers
hive been going out steadily until
the reserve stock is nearly exhaust
ed, thus hastening the time when it
will be necessary to increase the
working force and resume work on
the mixers for the summer season.
With labor more plentiful than in
the past few years, the cpmpany will
not be hampered this season by a
lack of workman.

The regular examinations which
have been given during the past

schools show good progress by the
majority of the scholars. This is
