THE MILWAUKE BRICK MACHINE.
Milwaukee has long been famous
for its superior quality of brick. Su-
periority of machinery is as necessary
to successful brick making as it is in
any other line of manufacture. Fi-
ler, Stowell & Co.. Milwaukee, have
recently purchased the right to man-
ufacture the best brick machine in
i;     use, and will supply the states of In-
diana, Obio and Kentucky particu-
larlv. as well as furnish machines for
use in any other localities. Mr. Gur-
ney, an experienced person, will do
the business of selling and putting
up these machines. One of these
brick machines has just been placed
in operation at Cleveland, Ohio, and
is now making brick at the rate of
35,000 per day. The machine is
made for either horse or steam
power. All brickmakers who have
used this machine are unanimous in
saying it is the " best they ever saw."
