Carter & Frazier, grain and stock buyers and shippers, Hillsboro. These gentlemen, both old residents of this county, commenced business in Hillsboro in July 1880. They occupy a large wooden building near the track of the Indianapolis, Bloomington & Western railroad, which premises have a storage capacity of 8,000 bushels of wheat. They contemplate building additional storage room for their corn. The business of the firm has increased rapidly from the start. Mr. Carter has had twenty years' experience in stock and grain buying, and Mr. Frazier fifteen. They ship mainly to Indianapolis. Mr. Carter has represented Fountain county in the state legislature. Mr. Frazier served four years as township trustee, and is now county commissioner. The position these two men have gained in society, and now hold, sufficiently indicates the presence of qualities and abilities that insure to their possessors alike the favors of fortune and the esteem of men.
