Pain in Stomach

Our esteemed brother of the Farmerville Gazette asserts in positive terms that “from six hundred to a thousand dollars would establish a plant that would turn out 200 bricks per day at a cost of about $375 a thousand and they would all be easily salable at $675 a thousand.” Now, Bro. Munholland will do us a highly appreciable favor by divulging the secret process of brick making upon such a meager capital. Indeed every community in the State, his own, as well, contains a number of public spirited citizens hunting investments that will gladly seize such a golden opportunity with inordinate avidity. But seriously, brother, isn’t there something wrong about your calculations? We hope you don’t figure as recklessly on your  chances for election to the Senate.  – The Mandville Wave.

You are entirely too small in your estimate, Brother R_______. We have not the time to look at our files, but we must have said 12,000 brick per day. We have just returned from an interview with two practical and experienced brick makers, one of whom is making or has made over 400,000 brick for our new court house and he says the capacity of his machine is 2,000 brick per hour, but on account of scarcity of labor he seldom exceeded 14,000 per day. We are informed That the whole cost of his machine is less than $500.00. We are also informed by each of these gentlemen that an auger machine which costs $250.00 will turn out 12,000 brick per day at a cost of making, burning, etc., of $3.75 to $4.50 per M. If we make no worse mistake as to our chances for the Senate we will “Get there Eli,” and we will.
