From Inv earliest childhood I de
cired to Lea miller. Tiwre was a
fascination. about, the rumble or the
min stones, the' endless mounting
ale olthe elevator cups, the perpet
ual sifting of the long white bulls,
and = the clatter of the coopers on
their barrels,: It was all this that
finally made ' Mk' a flour merchant
Everyone thus has his peculiar
tastes in'i)arly life, which in general
attests all that follow,'. Nly taste
was for the mill and .flour, and I
have retained it. all through life.
lint this taste for tlonr and the
_manufacture -, of it leads sometimes
to q uite unexpe - eted results. I was
cat:isnot wit-it .the working of the
little old-fashioned country mill and
ivater power 'until I made sonic

money faster. „Some said : (lo to

And old Bruec was right.
I went to Illnois and liked it so
Well that I had no thotight of going'

but somehow the luck g...1d. or bad,
seems to come to!rether. 'About this

over mV Mill, and asked questions

But he didit,t want machini-s he
