(Abridged) "Allen Maltby and his Old Water Power Mill."

......"Three score and more years ago, before the days of steam flouring mills, several water power mills and factories lined the bank of the Chargin at Mitchell's Mills. A large volume of busi- ness was transacted there, trade coming from a considerable distance, and the place enjoyed its palmiest days.

On the last bank of the Chargin river, still grinding its daily grist, is the old water power mill owned by Allen Maltby, pioneer, and built by him over 60 years ago. The wheel is so constructed that it revolves six times as fast as the water runs. The power is esti- mated at 35 to 40-horse. "I raised the frame for the mill on Feb. 29, 1844," said the aged owner recently, "and remember it distinctly be- cause it was leap year. I have had a deed of the mill property and 60 acres of land here since I was 21. I will be 86 next month."

The most of Allen Maltby's long and active life has been spent at Mitchell's Mills. The river is running just the same as when he first saw it. Its murmur has lulled him to sleep at night since he was a boy. It was always the first sound to greet his ears when he arose for a new day's labor. It is a sound that has always meant power and business to Allen Maltby.....

The burden of declining years rests heavily on Allen Maltby now .....His mind is still clear, though, and he can tell instantly how to repair a break correctly. To him the mill is his long-time friend, and every tree or stump in sight has its history.
