NEW GRAIN STOREHOUSE.--Mr Wm. Jordan, of Fenelon, has recently built a roomy storehouse on Lindsay street in this village, near the track of the Victoria Railway, and the company have promised to extend their switch so that cars can be backed up to the storehouse door. The building is elevated five feet above the ground on numerous stout posts, and all the foundation timbers are of cedar. The dimensions are 56 x 30 feet, and ten feet high from sills to plates. The floor and inside walls are two thicknesses of lumber, and the outside is of planed stuff, securely battened, and the painters are now at work on it. The binns are twelve in number, ten feet square, and can be raised to the height of the walls if necessary. It cost about $600, something more than was expected ; but buildings of all kinds have a knack of exceeding the estimate, as every person who has put one up knows to his cost. Mr. Jordan intends to rent some of the binns, and retain the others, speculating in grain to the extent of a few hundred dollars himself. We hope his enterprise may have a fitting reward.
