S.P. Young, has been in the general blacksmithing business, in this place, since 1860; occasionally manufacturing a wagon or buggy to order. The business has gradually increased until he now averages one new one a week; beside repairing and remodeling twice that number. He makes everything from a fine buggy, open or topped, to a heavy log wagon. His buggies and carriages are not only handsome and neat but they are durable. One of them will outlast two of the city machines that "are made to sell." He also makes from 100 to 150 shovel plows per annum, for the local trade.

In addition to this he does a vast amount of repairing, horseshoeing and general job work, probably half of his business is of this character. His shops are commodious, affording room for twenty hands, though he only works about half that number now, he intends to increase his facilities; especially for fine buggies and carriages, as soon as he gets his finishing room completed; then look out for something handsome from our home factory.
