Lathers Who Are Regular
Hall Room Boys in Rapid Work
For the past several weeks and on the first class jobs of the city there have been seen two of the finest expert lathers that ever came to town. They are Benjamin Harrison Singleton and Charles _. Brooks, colored, of Decatur, Hartselle and Somerville. These lathers are H. O. Haushalder contractor experts. They are the swiftest workmen of their class that ever worked in Huntsville. In fact they are regular Hall Room boys when it comes to doing the seemingly impossible. They never mash a finger, can drive nails faster than you can count them and play every tune with the hammer from Home Sweet Home up to the latest airs in ragtime music. Singleton and Brooks are wonders and to watch them work and cover space in regular storm waves is one of the curiosities of human skill. If you have any lathing work to do it will pay you to call on Singleton and Brooks. They know how.
