Short Service at Home.
First there were short services at
the hillside homestead, attended only
by those who had been very clo to
Dr. Bell at work or play. When
these were ended, bronzed workmen
employed on the estate lifted to their
shoulder his casket which had been
built in Dr. Bell's workshops out of
rugged pine, and carried it to his
coach, which led .the cortege up to
the very highest tip of the mountain.
There, his aix-foot frame silhouet
ted against the twilight sky, stood the
village parson, Rev. John MacKin
non of the Greenwood Presbyterian
church of Baddeck. Clustered about
him down the slopes of the moun

Site for $10,000,000 Assem
bly Factory Purchased on
Outskirts of Chicago.
Hammond, Ind., Aug. S. It was
learned here that Henry Ford had
bought 60 acrs of land in Heges
wieh, III., as a site for a $10,000,000
assembly plant located at One Hun
dred and Thjrty-fourth street and
Torrance avenue. The purchase price
is said to be $1.000,qp0. The tract is
on the Calumet river just below the
forks which is at present the limit of
deep water navigation. The channel
will probably have to be deepened
for one-half or three-quarters of a
mile and a turning basin provided.
This will make it possible to ship the
automobile parts from the Detroit
factory by boat and assemble them
right in the heait of one of the
greatest distributing centers. The
best of rail facilities are at hand.
Torrance avenue at present does
not cross the river, but the commis
sioners of Cook county have already
let the contracts for construction of
one of the largest draw bridges in
the country at this point.
