came to New Castle, and immediately found employment with those who could appreciate his skill and soon began contracting,
and has continued in the same ever since. During the past four years Mr. Aubel has successfully handled some of
the largest building contracts in the city and to mention the. buildings he has constructed calls attention to
some of the finest in New Castle. He built the who]esale Notion Company or Marquis Block, on South Mill Street;

his talents lie in the same direction, but in another branch. Mr. Aubel and family belong to the First Presbyterian
