The Paye & Baker Manufacturing Company, at North Attleboro, is building an addition to its plant on Richards avenue. The success of the concern in the manufacture of surgical instruments has made it necessary for the firm to materially increase its floor space.

The Swastika, we are told by the Paye & Baker Manufacturing Company, is a peculiarly lucky symbol, being far more efficacious than the horse shoe or the rabbit's foot. The Swastika is a cross composed of two square s's—if you don't happen to know it, and if this description will tell you anything about its shape. It is the oldest cross and the oldest symbol in the world, Paye & Baker say, and it first appeared on coins as early as several hundred years B. C. It is found in the ruins of all ancient civilizations, not only in Asia and Africa but in Mexico and Central America. And so the Paye & Baker Mfg. Company issue a little booklet illustrating a line of jewelry in which the Swastika is the motif. You may have a hat pin with a Swastika top if you wear the right kind of hat for a hat pin, and in case this would not do for you, you may have a Swastika watch fob.

Charles T. Paye of the Paye & Baker Mfg. Co., vigorously protested to the Selectmen last week relative to the electric car service from Pawtucket and Attleboro. He said the time was so arranged that it required employees to leave their homes before 6 o'clock to get to work. If continued he said North Attleboro would lose some desirable help. The Interstate after a conference with the Selectmen agreed to make the desired change.

Paye & Baker have a rare pattern which is a vine trailing up a brick wall...

I have only seen it once in person on this fork and once on a pic of a Souvenir Spoon.

I find this pattern to be very aesthetically pleasing, and the quality approaches the big names such as Sheibler and Tiffany (in my opinion)...
