WISCONSIN DAIxYxxN's AseosoA . genee, skill and integrity. In this line Wisconsin has taken front rank, and we of Sheboygan county are proud of our position in Wisoonsin's advance. This development is largely due to the work of your organization. Through your meetings in discussion and interchange of views and plans, and competition in results, you have infuaed interest and given intelligence and pride to the dairy pursuit. Our county has well profited by these teachings, and has also proved a worthy contributor to your membership and in- struction. This season of your meeting is the one best adapted to your time and purposes. When our city is at its best, in the summer time, you have other and practical work on hand. Could you be with a then, you would find all nature aisting to make your visit pleas- saL Grand old Lake Michigan -now so sombre and uninviting in appearance -would then be smiling you a welcome, in accord with uo. Leaving the heat and dust of your homes in the interior, you would find here the cool, refreshing air which makes Sheboygan so desirable as a summer resort. Without these aids. however, if you have the time, we will gladly show you some interesting evidences of enterprise in our people; some tokens that we have not rested simply upon what nature had given to our location. We have here three unrivalled chair fao- tories, whose joint productions are annually 850,000 ohairs of varied styles, being nearly five manufactured every minute of working time; tanneries, aggregating in the value of their produc- tions much more than chair factories; furniture manufactories, iron enameling works, foundries, breweries, and many other industrial establishments. Then, too, we have an artesian well, bored to the depth of 1,475 feet, flowing a great volume of water, utilized with pipes and hydrants for purposes of a fire department, and also greatly esteemed for the medicinalproperties of the water; if you will taste it you can vouch for its goodness - as a medicine. I mention these objects of interest, because the Sheboygander is modest and not given to trumpeting our titles to fame, and you might not otherwise have heard of them. Permit mesgain to bid you welcome, and to express the wish of all that you may have pleasure and profit in- this meeting, and we bespeak for you a good attendance and earnest, intelligent oo-oper- ation from the dairymen of Sheboygan county. 16
