  • Notes 
    • HALF A CENTURY

      Mr. Robert Kube, hardware merchant in this place, enjoys the distinction of having worked at tinsmithing for half a century. In the spring of 1853-just 50 years ago-he entered a tinsmith shop at Naugart, Germany, and served as apprentice for four years. He then spent three years travelling through Germany, working at his trade. By this time he was old enough for the army so he put in his four years' soldiering, after which he started in business for himself at Graftonberg, for which he had to pass an examination before a Commissioner to prove himself master of his trade. He continued there until 1866 when he sold out and came to Canada, working in Berlin for a few months, then established himself in business in Tavistock remaining there ten years. In 1881 he came to Wellesley where he has carried on business ever since. Although now getting up in years he is still a splendid workman and he has built up a profitable trade. He is in rugged health and his many friends hope he has still many years of health and prosperity before him.
