Clipped From The Petaluma Argus-Courier
OF S In the show windows of the J. C. Scott Hardware Company there Is a display of saddles and their accessories. This display attracts a great deal of attention for several Masons. "TB"OrocTes"erTaTrma3e In Petaluma, from materials furnished by Petaluma manufacturers. - The leather was furnished by the Sonoma Tanning Co., and the goods were made by the California Saddle and TreeCompany whose factory and principal place of business Is in Petaluma. . The saddles are beauties, and the leather goods that go with them are of like character with the saddles. The embossing, stamping and carving on the leather is the best'that the writer has ever seen, and we dare say can bear comparison with any production of this kind in the United States. There are stock saddles, and stride saddles for the ladles; there are chap-ajeroa, or "chaps," spur leathers, holsters for rifles and revolvers, a large dress suit case, and many other of the leather furnishings that add to the rider's outfit These will bo on display- in the - windows of the -- Scott Hardware . Company until Monday venlng or; next .-.weet , There- has never- been ?auch-a-showing-ot this kind of goods In Petaluma. The writer was shown through the company's factory on Saturday morning and was given a more thoroiigu idea of the processes of manufacture than can be gained by any other method. The machines for every stage of the manufacture are there, and although the plant Is not yet complete, there are enough machines to manufacture saddles from the start to the finish. At some future date there will appear an article describing the various processes as clearly as possible by one who has hitherto known nothing of them. It Is our particular aim at this time to draw attention to the display of good before they are taken from the windows back to the factory.
