Friday \vill mark -the fifth aimi- versary'of the Mason City Bottling company at its present- location, 701-705 South Federal avenue, and the twenty-eighth anniversary of the business itself. The industry was started in Mason City, May 1, 1908, when Thomas F. Cain, president of the company, arrived in the community and established the Hubb Bottling works, on Commercial avenue between State street and First street southeast. The first year Mr. Cain was in business here he manufactured about, 12,000 cases of beverage and his force consisted of himself and two ·others. Fifteen trucks and four sales cars are in constant service for the company today and approximately 35 persons are employed to handle the business that has been, built up in a radius of 75 miles ot Mason City in the past two decades. In August, 1910, Mr. Cain constructed the building now occupied by the Hutchinson Ice Cream company, 115 First street southwest. In the spring of 1920, Mr. Cain consolidated his concern with the Ma- sno City Bottling company, 113 Eighth street southeast, and in 1931 moved the plant to its present location.

This Week's Special Fresh Strawberry Quarts Pints 39c 20c BIRDSALL ICE CREAM STORE 518 North Federal Phone 2064 -Phenomenal changes have been made in the beverage industry in Mason City since Thomas F. Cain first came here May 1, 1908, and not the least of these have been the installation of a water treating unit at the Mason City .Bottling company plant at 701-705 South Federal avenue. All water used in the manufacture of beverages at this plant-is sent through a settling tank, which removes impurities from the water, and then through . a Hydrodarco purifier and "DeMarkus municipal type filter, so that anything that might change the flavor or composition of the beverage is eliminated. By mixing with the water certain proportions of alum and lime and then forcing the mixture into the tank by centrifugal force, all alkali and impurities are thrown to the bottom, where they are drained off. The pure water is then drawn from the top of the tank and sent, through the purifier and filter to further clarify it and then to the cooler. Gas, Cold Water Jlix. In the cooler lies one ot the secrets of the beverage business. Only in cold water will the carbon' dioxide gas mix readily and remain in the water until sealed. It would pass off freely in warm water, much the same as in milk, the foam of which is nothing more than the CO2 fizz of beverages. So before the beverage water is put through any process, it is cooled to about 40 degrees by passing through an internal tube cooler of special design. The brine in this- cooler is about IS degrees and is manufac' tured by the company's own . re frigeration system. With all disagreeable ingredients of the water removed, and with it purified and cooled to proper tem- peratures, the carbon-dioxide gas is then injected into the water, which becomes carbonated and is ready for mixing with the · syrup. Up to this point the water has moved through all these machines by pressure and gravity and is sealed from any exposure whatever. Not Touched by Hands. The syrups used in the manufacture of beverages are all made from raw sugar and raw flavors, which are mixed and cooked under the supervision of trained men. This is done with special equipment on tie second floor of the building on which is located a cold storage room, where the syrup is cooled and stored after the cooking process. From the time the bottles are placed on the chain belt conveyor leading to the washer until they emerge, clean, filled, labeled and sealed ready for consumption, the bottles are not touched by human. hands. The washer and sterilizer reminds one of a large threshing machine, into which the bottles are fed 12 at a time on one end of a conveyor and emerge later at the other end without a germ on them. Bottles Filled, Capped. At the syruping machine each bottle receives a given amount of syrup or flavor as it emerges from the washer. .From the syruping- machine the bottles are automatically transferred to a second machine in which they are filled with the carbonated water. A third transfer is made to the crowning machine, where the.bottles receive their tops. After going through these machines at the rate of 84 bottles a minute, they are then transferred to the accumulating tables, · from which they are packed into shipping cases and' placed in stock for delivery.
