Since starling in the business, especially In his present commodious location, Mr. Powers has met witli phenomenal success. His beginning was, however, on a very small scale, for which reason his success must seem all the more Katlfying. Mr. Powers was born in Ashad, Mass., in 1856. After a varied business career with Fenno, Son A Co., lv the wool business, later with F. Geldowsky, the furniture manufacturer, and more recently still with Amee Brothers for four years, he started into tbe business of furniture making and repairing, upholstering and decorating. He commenced, in 1884, in small quarters over David Brewer's market. Next he removed to Harvard street, and in July, 1884, his business had so increased as to...

The Sawln family is noted for its millers, and indeed it is said tbat a Sawin— a relative of the Cambridge expressman, too—started at Natick the first mill in this country and ground corn for the Indians. But Mr. Sawin got tired of the miller's business, and, just before the war, set out towards Boston to seek a different occupation. He came to Cambridge In 1800 and bought out the two teams constituting the express business of Mr. D. S. Buck. He was an entire stranger In this city as well as in Boston, The breaking nut of tbe war coining soon after he commenced the business, was also a drawback to him in more ways than one.
