Bruce, well known in Massachusetts political circles; A. F. Mack, a former mayor of Lawrence and vicepresident of the Arlington National bank; W. F. Rutter, and C. N. Perkins. Business is continued at the old stand: but constantly increasing growth necessitates a new location and a new plant, the site for which is now being considered. The business, however, will not be removed from Lawrence, Mass.

The company also holds the patent of the Carey playpipe and numerous other appliances which are being weli received by the departments. The company has now on hand, over $20,000 worth of orders, as Mr. Perkins has won an enviable reputation as a builder of trucks, combination wagons and straight chemicals by reason of the thoroughness he employs in construction and attention to details.
