'•Mr. Millard proposes to quarry tone for. the-manufacture of fertil- zer. Before undertaking this new nterprise, he was in ' consultation with chemist and Agricultural .experts of State College, and of the Hate Department of Agriculture. These experts made several analysis of the stone, and have found it to contain such a high percentage of calcium and magnesium that it now stands far above nearly all of the calcium, carbonate standards set oy he agricultural department for commercial use. It wan only after repeated conferences and assurances of the quality of the product,, that Mr. Millard took over the enterprise and decided to enter the fertilizer ield. , , The quarry is particularly attractive because of the loose formation of. the bed of stone. It is so soft that it can be readily secured without blasting, and 'Mr. Millard has et contracts for the building of two arge steam shovels which are to be used in taking, the stone .from Us, resting place. HJe researches with State College and State Agricultural Department experts was noised abroad with the result' that he has already received offers from several large fertilizer retailers to take th, e entire product of the quarries, but he has not yet made any contracts to dispose of the product. The crusher and a pulverizing machine will be install, ed by the time the big steam shovels arrive. Mr. Millard has arranged to place his eon, Jacob B, MUlard, 2nd in charge of the plant as his , own quarrying operations in the county occupy all his time. The Whitehall Cement company, has its main offices in Philadelphia, but its chief cement manufacturing plapt la located at Cementon, Pa. The company's superintendent, Mr. Hitter, who was in charge of the Annvijlo plant since the company took the quarries, has returned to Cementon, and will resume his former place as chief millwright for the concern. The development of the quarry along new lines as outlined above, will mean something to Annville ns a community, as additional help will be employed, and the fertilizer Fire the home a'.butcher, al smoke ail of, estimated only In the "Injured ' Greb, a decision fist flght $1,000 caah of Beavor tie royal Greb Braden duct will be an advertisement for the town as well, since the goods will likely be shipped to all; parts of the country.
