Abstract:
Yates presents information supporting his claim that Calvin F. Christopher is the state's most prolific inventors. Christopher lives near Canton, in Haywood County. His most outstanding invention is the cylinder computing-type scale manufactured by Dayton, Simpson, Toledo, Standard and other companies. Among his other patented inventions are a stock tether; ditch-digging machine; compressed brick machine; automatic railway switch; and a monkey wrench that does not have to be screwed to fit the object.

Abstract:
Over one hundred and fifty years ago Thomas Jennings Hackney was thrown out of a Quaker Church in Pennsylvania. He got mad, packed up, and moved to North Carolina. In 1854, W. N. Hackney moved from Chatham County to Wilson and opened a small wheelwright shop. The business, known as Hackney Brothers, has in turn been a buggy, wagon, and bus-body-building one. The firm remains in operation today. The article includes drawings of some of the company's early buggies.
