Inscription. Workers bought pasta, tobacco, kegs of wine, and just about everything except beer, at the company store. They bought beer at taverns in Lake Church, Schanens and Grof's, or from Grof's delivery wagon.

On Saturday nights, quarry workers cashed in their weekly accumulation of tokens - one for every cart of stone quarried. Each token was approximately the size and value of a quarter. The best worker might earn nine dollars for a 10 hour work day.
