LIVE NOTES CONCERNING MANY PLANTS

At the Brookfield manufacturing plant, Brooklyn, N.Y., the usual force is employed on both shifts under the management of Wm. B. Hughes, inventor of the carrying-in device still in successful use at these works. The blowers have worked steadily thus far, having lost only a few days since the beginning of the blast according to statements made during the writer's visit. Former Superintendent W. H. Schorling now has charge of the company's Old Bridge holdings.
