      The Sheriffs Manufacturing Company, Milwaukee, has closed a contract for a 20 x 24 engine with independent cut off, Schutte condenser,- with boiler 7 feet 6 inches by 13 feet 6 inches to early 140 pounds steam, and a 7 foot 2 inch wheel for a new tug for C. H. Starke & Co., dredging contractors. They have also completed a 14 x 16 engine, 5 foot 6 inch boiler 10 feet long, allowed 130 pounds steam for the tug HERMANN. Their propeller wheel business is flourishing. They have placed a 13 foot wheel of their new improved pattern, on the steamer PABST, an 11 foot wheel on steamer IONIA, an 11 foot 3 inch wheel on steamer John Duncan*, a 9 foot 4 inch wheel on steamer DYER, and many smaller sizes. Wheels furnished lately range from 18 feet to 7 feet. The order for the JOHN DUNCAN's wheel was received at 9 o'clock p. m. Saturday. They cast the wheel and fitted same, keying it on the shaft, by 8 p.m. Tuesday, which is considered the quickest work ever done in this line.
