Carbon Black Paying $1.25 to $2.00 a Day in 1900


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 2/20/1900.

At present and for some time to come the Cabot factory below town is and will employ not less than twelve men and the wages will be from $1.25 to $2 a day.  Small as this may seem, it amounts to some money annually.  In addition to this there are strong probabilities that there will be quite an increase in the number.  Grantsville made a wonderful mistake in allowing this factory to go so far below town, but, with all, it is bound to be a great factor in business circles.
