  • Notes 
    • C. Hammer & Co.

      This firm is one among the leading firms of the village that are prosperous and reliable. They deal exclusively in boots and shoes, which they also manufacture and repair. They have a large stock of all kinds of footwear of the latest patterns and styles. Their work and ready-made stock will compare favorably with any other in the county. Mr. Hammer, the senior member of the firm, was born in Normanby, Grey county, in 1864. He was married about three years ago to Martha, daughter of Mr. John Dingwall, of this place. He learned the boot and shoe making trade about twenty years ago with his uncle, Mr. John Eidt, now of Philipsburg. For a number of years he was employed by Mr. Hill, who was then conducting the business. He then purchased the business from Mr. Hill and was a partner with George Lips, who died about ten months after they had engaged in business. From that time on Mr. Hammer was alone in the business until about a year and a half ago he took as partner Mr. H Forler. Mr. Forler was born here in 1870. He learned his trade with Mr. Henry Hill. The business is one of the oldest in this section, having been established by Mr. Hill about forty five years ago. Mr. Hammer and his partner, Mr. Foiler, are seldom idle, always working at the bench when not engaged at the counter atttending to customers in the ready-made department. Their work will always stand inspection. While here I was shown a valuable relic which is now in the possession of Mr. Hammer. It is a medal received by his grandfather for meritorous conduct in the war with Napoleon in 1814 and 1815. It was made from a cannon captured by the Germans from the French. On one side is the inscription: "K.W.II seinen tapfern, Hessen, 1821. On the reverse side, "Gott brach des Feindes macht und Hessen ward befreit." Its worthy recipient died many years ago from the result of wounds he sustained in that sanguinary strife.
