More merchants in Horicon early history was A. Inglis & Sons who were inventors and manufacturers of the Improved Horicon Automatic Windmill; and dealers in piping and iron pumps. The windmill is so constructed that it turns to the wind with the least change of its direction; by the pressure of the wind on its face of the sail the mill head and spider are pushed towards the driver, furling the sails or laying them parallel with the mail shaft and with the course of wind. It has been used for the past ten years giving universal satisfaction to the thousands of buyers using them. It is the only mill that storms have not injured, making it most superior. The mill is simple and strong, a large portion of the iron being wrought. It is self-regulating and the mill head slides and revolves on the arm of the turntable, which relieves the mail shaft from all the weight. The pump rod then gets two motions; slow-up-or where lilting water-and quick down, lifting the pump rod nearly two-thirds the revolution of the mill and back in one third. It has 33 1/3 percent more power this way, more power over others that have an even stroke. H. F. Krueger was a leading merchant as well having a young unlimited energy and spirit.
