Kelly Buys Out Phil Farren (1917)

Columbia City Post ~ Saturday, September 22, 1917

Wednesday morning, August Kelly, who has been in the tailoring business here for several years, bought out the half interest of Phil Farren in the Dry Cleaning plant owned by Mr. Farren and Joe Yontz. The new firm will now be known as Kelly & Yontz, and they expect to do all sorts of dry cleaning, handling suits, rugs, ladies dresses, and other goods which need to be washed. The equipment which Farren & Yontz have kept in the Otto Langohr shop in the Washburn block, will be moved to Mr. Kelly's shop in the Grisier room on Van Buren street. Mr. Farren will travel about selling clothes, pianos and talking machines.

The new combination of Kelly & Yontz is composed of two hustlers and they will doubtless continue to enjoy a big patronage, just as their predecessors did.
