The Monument cheese factory and mercantile company filed articles of incorporation with the secretary of state yesterday morning. The company had filed articles of incorporation some time ago, but withdrew them to make some changes in the directory and to alter the by-laws. The company as now organized intends to build, construct, maintain and operate a cheese factory and mercantile institution at Monument.
The capital stock is to be $2,000, divided in eighty shares of $25 each. The company is to exist twenty years and its affairs are to be managed by a board of trustees chosen annually. The board for the first year is to consist of Henry Guise, Allen Teachout and Charles E. Bemis.
