wheat from Ripon to Sheboygan at cents per bushel for ten What letter inducement does the business man or farmer want than this There is no ouiity in this State containing better land or raising wheat than Fond da fnd are but one or two counties that ex ort an equal number of bushels of wheat iml other It is estimated that the of bushels of wheat shipped from Ripon during the past year reaches six hundred thousand bushels with a railroad running from Ripon to Fond du carrying the farmers wheat at BIX cents per where they now have to pay double that amount by any other thousands of dollars oould
