Apparently one of the busiest places in the city is the new glove factory which was opened by the Field Glove Company Monday morning at 1208 I Street in the Brooks building.

The Messrs. Field have had sixteen successful years' experience in glove manufacturing at Bloomington which assured Bedford of a permanent industry that will take up the surplus of female labor in this city.

At present 50 girls are employed, and this force will likely be increased from time to time. The plant will be kept in operation the year round and, after sufficient training and organization, will turn out about 6,000 pairs of gloves daily.

The Bedford plant is under the management of R. P. Carmichael. Mrs. Mary Murray is the forelady and instructor, and John Stoute is the machinist. — Bedford Mail
