Grain Elevators

In view of he decreased facilities by the destruction in the late fire, of the Elevators owned by J.L. Hall & Co. and Messrs. Ames & Brother, we take pleasure in notifying those interested that our townsman, Mr. W. Lewis has supplied himself with a floating elevator, capable of discharging from vessel to boat one thousand bushels per hour, which is now put in operation with the Ontario elevator and the Platt Elevator, will be able, in a great measure, to supply the wants of the public. We understand that others of a temporary character will at once be erected on the burnt district, so that there will be no want of facilities for transshipment of grain this fall.
