       Creameries and canning factories mean much to this Grant county city,
and they also indicate that it lies in a rich agricultural district. Noted
for its fine water system, Lancaster can draw 550 gallons a minute of pure
water from an overflowing spring. Its new high school building was recently
completed at a cost of :175,000 and a new civic center cost the community
$130,000. This city is one of the "largest livestock shipping points
on the
Northwestern Railroad", according to Editor I.. L. Shorran.   "The
city is
beautiful, clean, free from slums and it has neat stores and modern build-
ings" further states Sherman, one of Lancaster's boosters.    Lancaster
has
eight rurcl routes.
