Owing to the rapid increase in the demand for their famous Root Cutters and Grass Seeders, O. E. Thompson & Sons find it necessary again to enlarge their manufactory, and are now laying the foundation for an addition, 20 x 40 feet, two stories high, which when finished will give them for business purposes a full half acre of floor space. Their market for Grass Seeders and Root Cutters has wonderfully increased during the past two years, and the prospect for the next season is brighter than ever. The public appreciates good things and the Thompsons have them sure. --Item in the May 2, 1895 Ypsilantian newspaper.
