The Flour Trade.

In the article of flour, that manufactured by the mills of St. Louis,
cannot be excelled in any part of the Union. There are in the city
some twenty-five flouring mills—conspicuous among them for the high
character of their brands, being the Atlantic, the Camp Spring, the
Empire, the Franklin, the Jefferson, the Laclede, and the North Ninth
Street mills, and the mills of Eickermann & Wulze, Engelke & Feiner,
Mattack, Edwin & Co., and the Union Steam Mill Company. The flour
manufactured by these mills is known far and wide for its superior ex-
cellence, its fame reaching even to the Atlantic cities and Europe.
