NEW FRENCH IVORY FACTORY

In order to realize this, the firm of Carl Austin & Co. determined upon building a factory of its own, so that the manufacturing would be linked up with the selling end of the business, thus ensuring a dependable product and eliminating a certain percentage of the cost of distribution. It is now announced that the factory is already in operation in West Toronto, and turning out a complete line of French Ivory goods. The production will be greatly increased in the new year and especial attention will be devoted to the jewelry trade.
