Dissolution.
New Firms - New Enterprises.
About five years ago Mr. Menno M. Fry, of Rothsville, removed his cigar factory to this place.  His business grew rapidly and orders came in from the Eastern and Western States.  Owing to the increasing demand for his goods, he was compelled to enlarge his manufacturing facilities, and a few years ago built the tobacco warehouse and cigar factory on North Broad street, a building familiar to all our citizens.  Located in the centre of the richest tobacco-growing section of Lancaster county, he saw the advantages of the leaf tobacco trade, and taking his brother, N. C. Fry, into partnership, they commenced packing and dealing in Pennsylvania leaf.

The new firm was successful in the venture, and last year packed about five hundred cases of the much prized ’80 crop.  This branch of their business growing so large demanded the entire attention of the senior member of the firm, and in order to give it the attention required, he disposed of his interest in the cigar trade to N. C. Fry, the junior member, and H. H. Miksch, the foreman in this department, who together have had the management of the same for the past year and a half, they continuing the old business under the new firm of Fry & Miksch.

Of the senior member of the new firm nothing need be said, as he is well known to the trade.  Mr. Miksch is a young man of strict integrity and good business qualifications, having been successfully engaged in every branch of the tobacco trade from the growing to the manufacture of it.

Many of our citizens are not aware of the business done in the cigar line by the old firm.  Their shipments for the last year run up to four millions [sic] of cigars, requiring the handling of from sixty to seventy-five thousand dollars.  The new firm will no doubt push ahead in the future as the old one did in the past, and we hope that their trade may grow, and that its brands may become familiar to all lovers of good cigars in the Union, and that its members may wax fat and wealthy.

M. M. Fry has associated himself with another gentleman of this place, in the leaf trade, and we expect to see this branch of the business grow rapidly under the fresh impetus it has secured by the new addition to it.  The new firm has already shown its energy in securing two hundred cases of the present crop on the poles.  It has been the largest local buyer in this section.  We hope it will come into line with the largest packers in the county ere long.

Notice.
The co-partnership heretofore existing between Menno M. Fry and Nathan C. Fry, under the firm name of Menno M. Fry & Bro., is this day dissolved by mutual consent.  The business of manufacturing cigars will be continued by Nathan C. Fry and Hayden N. Miksch, late foreman of the manufactory, who have this day entered into a co-partnership, under the name of Fry & Miksch.  All liabilities and outstanding accounts due Menno M. Fry & Bro., will be assumed and collected by the new firm of Fry & Miksch.
Thanking the trade for their generous patronage in the past, and soliciting a continuance of the same for the new firm, we remain,
Very Respectfully,
Menno M. Fry
Nathan C. Fry.

Matrimonial.--
Mr. Frank B. Buch and Miss Sue S. Miller had many friends, and it was generally understood that the two were pretty good friends themselves; so the event of Wednesday evening was not altogether a surprise.  A pleasant company of invited guests assembled at the residence of the young lady’s parents, near New Haven, to witness the nuptials of the happy young couple.  The Rev. J. Peter, of Manheim, tied the matrimonial knot; let us hope the bonds prove silken.

After the ceremonies refreshments were served, so abundantly and richly that it is a mercy no calamity attended the festivities.

The young couple start out on the voyage of life together attended by the sincere well-wishes of all.  Congratulations sound cold and formal, but we add our mite to the abundant store.
