    Though Barabuo is in the heart of a prosperous farming territory, its
prosperity is also built on the tourist trade that goes tc its attractive
natural scenery abounding at Devil's Like, nearby, and -the Wisconsin Dells
that lie in an adjoining community.   Kilbourn, the home (£f the Wisconsin
Dells,
is only t¢4*eeen mniles away. Dairying and general faiming are noted
main-
stays of the territry, but fruit is coming to play an important 1part on
the
local farms in this part of 3auk county. A busy woclen mill, linen mill,
overall factory and other industries are also imjortant assets to Baraboo.
