COMMERCIAL TRAVELERS WILL
FORM STOCK COMPANY.
EACH MAN WILL DE SALESMAN
Each One of 100 Commercial Travelers
Is to Take $100 Stock In the Propo
sition , Making $100,000 to Start
With.
The pOHslhllltloH of a packing plant
'omlng ' lo Norfolk grow stronger as
iddltlonal Information cornea ( o light.
According to Information given out by
i prominent member of the Commer
cial club the proposition of organizing
Htock company with 100 members
was llrst broached by a traveling man ,
who IH one of a number who are work
ing In that direction. According to
Ills Htatomont a number of traveling
mon In Norfolk territory and oven out
side of It In Iowa and NebraHka , have
the matter under consideration ,
At the next meeting of the Iowa
Slate Traveling M n'a association , of
which these men are inomberfl , the
matter Is to bo taken up and an at
tempt made to Interest 100 traveling
men sulllclently to start the enterprise.
ISach ono Is to take $1,000 stock In the
now Htock. With the $100,000 thus
raised the plant will bo prepared.
Then each stockholder will put In $100
a month for four or ( ivo months or as
long as necessary to get the packing
plant on a sound financial basis.
It Is pointed out by the traveling
mon that besides the natural advant
ages which Norfolk possesses as a
point for small plant , the co-operation
of UK ) traveling men In the sale of the
products will bo of Incalculable benefit
to Iho plant. Kaelt traveling man will
act as a salesman for the company
and all expense of sales will thus be
done away with. lOvery particle of
territory In which the company could
compote will bo thoroughly covered
and the various products and brands
rapidly established.
It Is presumed that the story etna
mil Ing from Sioux City early In the
week was based on this proposition
and Is the same thing. Whether the
original Intention has been changed
so us to Include stockmen and cattle
men is not known although there Is a
possibility that such may be the case.
Again the project was llrst considered
when It was supposed that the sugar
factory could bo made Into a packing
houso. Whether the refusal of the
sugar factory for such a plan would
materially change the plans of the
traveling men or not Is not known , al
though It Is pointed out that from an
economic standpoint It would be
cheaper to build a now plant than to
use the old building. The cost of
altering the sugar factory to comply
with the needs of a packing nous
would bo considerable and It never
could bo made to be as economical In
handling as a plant specially designed
for the business. For this reason It Is
presumed that the change of plans ol
the Industrial company will not change
Iho aspei't of the original project.

BUY FOSTER JrtARBLE PLANT
Stannard & Glldca Promise to Make
Norfolk Marble Center.
( From Kilduy'H Pally. ]
The Foster marble works have been
purchased by Stannard & Glldca and
arc to be thoroughly overhauled and
Improved so ( hat the scope of the busi
ness will be largely Increased. The
now owners are figuring with an out
sider to put In $20,000 additional cap
ital with which to make the necessary
Improvements to make the business
the largest of Its kind In the territory
west of Omaha and on the Northwestern
(
ern lino.
It Is the Intention of the new firm
to put In machinery at a cost of $20-
000 and do practically all of the cut
ting and polishing with it. At present
most of the tomb stones made in Nor
folk are shipped In practically finished.
The cost of those stones laid down in
Norfolk Is so great that competition
with larger manufacturers , who finish
their own stone , Is almost impossible.
With this machinery it will be possi
ble to ship In granite and marble In
carload lots and unfinished. The ma
chinery will not only cut the stone
Into any desired size or shape hut will
put a rough face on It , polish it or
glvo It any other finish possible by
hand. With the additional capital
Staunard & Glldca believe that they
can buy much moro cheaply by hand
ling nothing but carload lots of the
rough stone. They will put two men
on the road all of the time.
Last year , before ho sold his old
marble works , Mr. Stannard did a busi
ness of $20,000. To do this he was on
the road but half the time and was
unable to meet much competition that
canto from other parties with machine-
equipped plants. This ho will now be
able to meet and so with the two regu
lar salesmen they expect to do a busi
ness In excess of $100,000 a year.
The plant acquired by them has
been owned and run by Mr. Foster
for about twenty-two years , although
he had not made an active fight for
business during recent years because
of numerous outside interests.
