One of the best and most successfully managed flourmills in this district is located at John Day. It is owned by the subject of our sketch, who has been a resident of Grant County since 1879. The mill has it capacity of fifty barrels, being equipped with a full roller process of the latest type. Although doing some custom work, Mr. Basford makes a specialty of the merchant trade making a leader of his family flour “The Best” and in the opinion of consumers it does not belie its name. Every sack is warranted extra quality, and full weight. He also manufactures corn meal, graham flour, farina and all kinds of mill feed.
