Manufactures and Industries.
There are in active operation breweries, tanneries, soap and candle works, jam-making establishments, saw-mills, fellmongeries, flour-mills, coachbuilding factories, agricultural implement works, iron foundries, tin smelting works, and manufactories of cloth, tweed, and blankets. The climate is especially adapted to malting and brewing. Jam-making is a flourishing industry in the south, the quantity exported in 1879 being nearly four million pounds.
