1912 Jun 6 – Elevator for Fork River
They say everything comes to those who wait. This has proved to be the correct in the case of the Fork River people. This district is one of the best in the north country and during past years has produced much grain. One of the difficulties the farmers have had to contend with in the past has been the lack of storage and shipping facilities. This, however, is about to be remedied and much of the credit for the same is due to Frank Chase, who, for some time past has interested himself in getting his company to build an elevator. This week he is in receipt of a communication from the inspector of the Northern Elevator Co., Mr. Barber, stating that the company had decided to build an up-to-date elevator at Fork River. Work of building the elevator will commence this month.
