Christopher P. Brick surprised people Thursday morning by selling out his livery business and equipment except four horses, to Allen S. Armstrong, possession being given at once.  Mr. Brick has built up a good businesses since establishing it four or five years ago and his friends will miss him.  He does not state what he will do in the future, except to straighten up business matters and take a disserved rest.  Mr. Armstrong is well known in his former connection with the Black River Driving association and will no doubt make a bustling liveryman.
