    • REMOVAL


      The old firm of C.Kranz and Son have removed to the new block, erected by Mr. Mayor Kranz. The old building in which this Firm has done business for nearly a quarter of a century was put up by Mr. Samuel Roether in 1850. Though it has since then undergone numerous changes and improvements, it must now give way still more to the march of improvement, as it has been purchased by Mr. Mogk, who will change the entire front and make two first-class stores of it, lowering the first flat to a level with the sidewalk. The splendid new double store which Mr. Kranz now occupies is one of the finest in town. Each of the stores is 20 x 80 feet, has a plate-glass front and fitted up with all the modern improvements, the one still vacant being rented to Smythe Brothers, who will also move in a few days. Mr. Kranz has fitted up in the rear of his store a splendid office, with vault attached, where his Insurance and General Exchange and agency business will be conducted. Now that this old established business is removed to better and more spacious quarters it will no doubt expand into much larger proportions. Mr. Joseph Bury, so well known for his genial and courteous bearing, is still the head clerk and manager of the mercantile department. We wish it every possible success.
