Middletown, Conn., June 23.–The prospect for a good season at the local factories is excellent. Wilcox, Crittenden & Co. have orders enough to keep twice their force at work all summer. The Russell Manufacturing Company will keep its present force at work all summer. The Middlesex Rubber Company reports business better than last year. The Rockfall Woollen Company, W. E. B. Douglass, Rogers & Hubbard and I. E. Palmer will run full time all summer, and they feel confident of a marked improvement in the market.
