SELL OUT LIVERY-Morgan Estate will sell whole outfit. The B.J. Morgan estate is going out of the livery business and the whole outfit has been placed on the market. The buildings will however continue as a sale and feed stable. The reason for selling out the business is that Theron Morgan intends to devote his entire time to the fruit farm. The Morgan barn was established in 1869 by the late B.J. Morgan, and is the pioneer livery of the city. At the time it was established, the outfit consisted of four horses and two buggies, which were rented out to the people in those early days. The business prospered and was added to until it is at present the largest stable of its kind in this part of the state.
