    NEW ENTERPRISED [sic] LAUNCHED

    Eskew Brothers Open Branch Establishment.

     

    No one who knows the Eskew Bros., will be surprised to learn that they have bought the Stembridge wagon works and machine shops on Belleville street recently operated by A. J. Stembridge, who relinquished it only because of a lack of capital to operate it successfully. The Eskew Bros., who are noted for their thrift, industry and enterprise will put the new branch under the charge of L. J. Randolph as foreman and Myron Frisbie as Master Mechanic, steel workman wagon builder and carriage maker. This certainly insures the patrons of this shop with work of the highest class and they can depend on finding here also a horse-shoer of national reputation.

     

    The wagon manufacturing will be pushed. Their [sic] is room for it here. Marion above all things needs factories. The great Studebaker began his career in a much less pretentious shop and now their products are sold in all parts of the civilized world and it is truthfully stated that the sun never sets on the British Empire or the Studebaker wagons. Give Eskew Bros. the home support they deserve and they will surprise you in a short time with their new wagon works and machine shop.

    A. J. Pickens purchased an Automobile in Evansville, Saturday from the International Harvester Co., and brought it home Sunday, making a fine trip overland in fine shape and short time. Eskew Bros. are the agents and that alone is a guarantee of a high class machine.

    An Early Jaunt.

     

    Friday morning, John Eskew, with his chaffeur [sic], Mr. Estes, took J. B. Kevil, S. M. and Robert Jenkins to the John Nunn Farm on the Morganfield Road, for breakfast. Leaving here at 4:42, the run was made in one hour and seven minutes, and the indicator showed the exact distance as eleven miles. The machine behaved splendidly on the entire route and climbed Baker Hill with ease, Mrs. D. H. King, assisted by Mrs. Ramzy King, served a splendid breakfast of which all partook bountifully. The trip was pleasant notwithstanding the bad roads.
