He'll show you the artesian, sad the liquid It distills 
Will save your taking alcohol, or lager beer, or pills. 
You can learn to be chair fac'ry men, and get - oh! dreadful rich - 
Or tanner men like General Grant; or tend a railroad switch; 
Or keep a brewery instead, or what might still be better, 
Can run for office If you like - or If you've never met her - 
Can meet your fate - for maidens fair stand ready by the dozens, 
To marry fancy dairymen, their uncles or their cousins! 
So failing cream, or curds and whey, or failing cheese and butter - 
Welcome to old Sheboygin! Here the muse begins to flutter- 
And she hears a granger whisper In creamy tones close by, 
Quite plainly whisper, "Cheese it! " and she does so with a sigh.
The banquet and dance given by the citizens of Sheboygan to 
the dairymen from abroad, was a most complete success in every 
particular. 
The members of the Wisconsin Dairymen's Association have 
never attended a better banquet. Turner Hall was handsomely 
festooned and decorated with numerous flags, ensigns, etc., with 
the state motto, " Forward," in large letters over the main entrance
to the hall from the vestibule. Five tables were set the whole 
length of the audience room of Turner Hall, and three parallel 
tables the whole depth of the stage, the scenery appliances of 
which had been removed for the purpose, about thirty feet, on all of 
which were laid 450 plates. These were all full at the first sitting, 
and some fifty more were accommodated at a second setting of the 
tables upon the stage. All were abundantly supplied. 
During the supper Schmidt's orchestra furnished a pleasant ac- 
companiment of music from the gallery. 
There was excellent singing from the Glee Club. The club 
comprised Misses Minnie Bent and Fannie Hanchett, as sopranos, 
Mesdames J. L. Mallory and T. W. Cole, as contraltos, Miss Mae 
Bent and Mr. Hugo Dotzauer, as tenors, and Messrs. J. J. Han- 
chett and J. L. Mallory, as bassos, with Mrs. Dr. Almon Clarke as 
pianist 
MORNING SESSION, FRIDAY, June 13. 
The association met at 9:30, pursuant to adjournment. 
President Beach called the convention to order and said the first 
order of business was the report of the committee on resolutions. 
Are the committee ready to report?
