  • Notes 
    • KATZENMEIER & WING.

      Messrs. J. F. Katzenmeier and J. Wing are the Massey-Harris representatives in New Hamburg. Mr. Katzenmeier, who at present is Reeve of the Municipality, is an American by birth but has lived so long in Canada that lie may be termed a native. He has spent 37 years in New Hamburg, being in business the whole of that period. In earlier years lie was connected with a general store and afterwards with the foundry. For the past S years, he has engaged with much success in the implement business. During the last five years he has had associated with him Mr. J. Wing, formerly a well known farmer in the neighborhood. These two gentlemen make a strong team and the Massey-Harris people must consider themselves extremely fortunate in having such able representatives in a rich agricultural district like New Hamburg. Both the members of the firm have been sought after to fill public office, an evidence of their ability and the esteem in which their fellowtownsmen hold them. Mr. Wing served in the Council and Mr. Katzenmeier gave long and valuable service on the School Board and in the Council before proceeding to the position of Reeve. By honorable dealing, they have won the confidence of the farming community. They are worthy representatives of a worthy firm.1a
