[title cut off?]  Messrs. S. B. & C. Hayes are having different rooms in their carriage manufactory in this borough, whitewashed and everything about the premises cleaned up in anticipation of an improved trade.  They recently added to their working force; from inquiries that have been made concerning lumber and carriages it is believed the beginning of good times is at hand.  There is a demand for lumber which they supply indicating that considerable building will be done the coming summer.
