The Company is proposed to be formed for the, establishment of a Woollen Factory, for the purposes of providing a local market for wool grown in the district; of cpnyprtin:? the wool into manufactured goods; 'and'of selling such goods wholesale or other wise, ,jThe,,.promoters have arranged for the purchase, at a reasonable price, of a suitable site with water power, on the bank qLbhe, Ashburton river, about threequarters of a mile from the township, and arrangements have been made for the construction. of a water-race through the lirid for the purpose of working the chineryEfficient machinery, to the value of £lysoo, has already been secured, which ig. capable of being worked by either steam orYvater power. ’.Taking into consideration the following f^cts:—l.

As'the shares have been fixed at a small auibuht, persons of limited means as well aircapitalista will bo enabled to invest in the undertaking, which, in the course of time, is calculated to yield a good interest on invested capital, and at the same time establish a permanent industry in the colony. - An a , large number of shares have already beep applied for, early application iaipeoeissary. and forms of application may be obtained from the Secretary, A sh-tetesa-.v ■The S.har© .List will close on May 18th. 228 e jML Hotels.
