Turning Back the Pages

100 Years Ago - May 1913

Shirt Co. forms alliance

The Empire Shirt Company of Warrensburgh has formed a big business deal with one of the largest collar manufacturing concerns in Troy which provides for the sale of the entire output of the local factory, with its present capacity doubled.

The Troy concern, which manufacturers collars and cuffs exclusively, has 25 salesmen on the road covering the entire region and each one of these men will carry a complete line of the Empire Shirt Company’s samples. This will positively assure a ready market for all the goods that can possibly be made here. The factory will be greatly enlarged and when the fall business begins, there will be a great demand for operators.

This means much to Warrensburgh.

With plenty of work for everyone, the old days of prosperity will return. The empty houses, of which there are at present not a few, will be filled and property values will rise again. Town businessmen in all lines of trade will share in the benefits of the upcoming boom. Families in surrounding towns who desire steady work need not hesitate to come to Warrensburgh in the fall as they will indeed find a good life here.

Henry Crandall’s will contested

The late Henry Crandall died about two months ago, leaving his entire estate, estimated at $1 million, in trust for the city of Glens Falls. Most of the estate is real property, part of which is a park of several thousand acres.

Several persons who claim to be heirs of the late Mr. Crandall have taken steps to contest the aged philanthropist’s will. The heirs are Harvey S. Crandall of Lake George, Henry Crandall Durkee, Anna Wickes and Anna M. Lawlor. They maintain that the will is not the last will and is therefore invalid.
