NEW GARAGE WILL OPEN
     A large ad in this issue announces the opening of a new garage at Mundy's Corner early this spring under the management of Watson & Altimus, both gentlemen being longtime residents of this borough. Mr. Altimus was formerly outside Foreman for No. 3 Mine and Mr. Watson has also been identified with the mining industry here for many years.
The new firm will handle the Durant Cars, also the sub-agency of the Chevrolet for the Nanty Glo Garage. Both men have many friends here who are glad to see them embark in business and wish them success.

BLACKSMITH SHOP MOVED
Roland Evans, the blacksmith, recently erected a new building on his lot on Roberts St. and has moved his shop from its old location on Chestnut St. into the new building. The new quarters gives him much more room for his work and will be an up-to-date shop in every way.
