May Locate New Plant at Gaston.


George R. DePeugh and L. P. Roberts of Muncie, are contemplating the erection of an insulator factory at Gaston, Ind. They met recently with the business men of that town and the latter are in favor of the proposition. Mr. Roberts has received a patent on an insulator, which does not away with the expense of tie wires and makes construction expense cheaper. The two men are asking the citizens of Gaston to subscribe for shares in the new company. The matter now rests with the business men and citizens of the town. It is probable that the company will be organized as for some time the citizens of Gaston have been desirous of locating a glass factory.
