Messrs. Horry and Embra Kinsey, under the firm name of Kinsey Bros., have been in charge of the Big Four elevator in this city since last April and already are quite popular with the farming community tributary to North Manchester. They also control the elevator at Claypool, where for the past nine years they have been the leading grain buyers in that place. They buy all kinds of grain and field seeds and pay the highest market price for same. The North Manchester elevator has a storage capacity of 20,000 bushels, that at Claypool 15,000. These gentlemen enjoy the confidence of the farming community to the fullest extent and when providence again blesses this part of the country with bountiful crops the Big Four elevator in this city will become the Mecca of all farmers who market their grain in North Manchester.
