This is a splendid picture of one of the county's leading industries - Marion Roller Mills. In front on the left is the office, cozy and convenient without an within; the high builidng on the left is the elavator; the three story building on the right is the mill proper and its big smokestack looms up in the rear, and just behind all these is a side track of the I. C. railroad.
The capacity of the mill is seventy-five barrels of flour per day, and there are no idle days - a full complement of hands are all kept busy by the extensive merchant and custom business of Clark & Kevil.
Two famous brands manufactured here are their patent flour, "Little Beauty," and the straight-grade "Dew Drop,".
Mr. D. B. Kevil, is the manager, and is an expert miller as well as a fine business man.
This mill was located on East Bellville Street, where the popular Marion Feed Mill is located today.
