EUGENE DUENWEG, Terre Haute, has been agent for the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Company for about one year, and by his enterprise and good management this branch has been brought to an important stand as one of the industries of the city. Since he engaged in the business he has built, near the Indianapolis & St. Louis railroad depot, an icehouse with a capacity of about ninety-six tons, which is also used as a store-house. To operate this business, which is gradually increasing, Mr. DUENWEG gives employment to from two to four men. Mr. DUENWEG is a native of the province of Rhine, Germany. He has now been a resident of Terre Haute for the past thirteen years, to which place he came direct from Europe. He first began work in this city by accepting a position in the Vandalia railroad shops. Leaving the shops he began work for the wholesale firm of H ulman & Cox, as receiving clerk. He held this position a little over one year, and resigned to open and operate the Easter brewery. He did not remain in the brewery quite one year, when, in 1877, he accepted the position as deputy city treasurer, under his brother Hugo, a position that he is still holding, and discharging his duties in a proper and satisfactory manner, though he also does an extensive outside business, as explained. - HISTORY OF VIGO AND PARKE COUNTIES Together With Historic Notes on the Wabash Valley H.W.
