Jury, Maurice Ingram, Carrier, Coal, Firewood, Grain, and Produce Merchant. Office, yards, and stablos, Broadway and Juliet Street, Stratford. Agent for the New Zealand and Colonial Carrying Companies. This business was established by Mr. Jury in 1900. The premises consist of a commodious iron store, stables, and yards, situated on half an acre of freehold land in Broadway, and of a stable, stores and yards situated in Juliet Street. There is storage capacity for 5000 sacks of grain, and a plant for crushing oats and wheat, and for cutting wood, which is driven by a six horse-power engine and boiler. The stables in Broadway consist of six stalls and four loose boxes, besides a man's room. The Juliet Street premises have a sixteen-stalled stable, with five loose boxes, together with a harness room, a storeroom, a man's room, and covered coal sheds. There is also standing room for traps, etc. The plant includes four large lorries, an express, seven spring drays, and two tip drays. Eighteen horses are employed in the business. Mr. Jury also owns a mower, and a side delivery reaper, and undertakes agricultural contracts in the district. In June, 1906, he bought out the business of Mr. W. Butler, who was in the same line, including his New Zealand Express Agency, and works it in conjunction with his old business. Mr. Jury was born in 1870, in Omata, was educated at Tikorangi, and brought up to farm work. Subsequently he worked a farm of eighty acres on the Pembroke road, Stratford, for eleven years, and after he had greatly improved it he sold the property to the Stratford Poultry Company, Limited. Mr. Jury is a member of the Caledonian and Acclimatisation Societies, and, as a Freemason, is a member of Lodge Stratford, No. 75. In 1891, he married a daughter of Mr. G. Mumby, of Stratford, and has one son.
