Ann Arbor is to have another manu'acturing institution in the shape of a corset factory which will shortly be opened here, to be known as the Crescent Clasp Works. The new fac;ory has rented the entire upper floor of the Courier printing office and workmen are now busy putting the rooms u order for the new factory. The capital stock of the company is placed at $10,000. J. E. Beal is president, Dr. C. G. Darling is vice president, Charles McGee is secretary-treasurer and general manager, while William McGee will be superintendent' of the works. J. J. Goodyear is also one of the stockholders. Only the best class of corsets will be made and not the cheaper grades. The patent owned by the company is on the clasp of the corsets, the principal advantage being that one vertical motion disengages all the front fastenings of the corset and saves much time in removing the garment. The inventor is William McGee, who has been connected for many years with a Jackson corset factory as general manager, etc. Charles McGee, the general manager of the new company, was an instructor in the University last year, and will now devote his entire time to pushing the work. The factory will probably employ from eight to ten hands to start with.
