222 WISCONSIN BLUE BOOK the state challenging the industrial states in certain fields, yet main- taining a strong agricultural standing. The century saw the distribution and gradual rebuilding of one of the great forest regions of the country, the rise of the nation's great- est dairying industry, the rise and decline of wheat and flour as a product of the soil and industry, but the substitution of a great paper industry. It saw Wisconsin rise as a symbol of effective and efficient govern- ment, honesty in public life and a pioneer in legislation aimed at improving the way of life of its people. Perhaps as important as anything else, it laid the foundation for continued advancement by a broad public educational system, vigorous attention to the develop- ment of its future leaders and free opportunity for its economy to expand and move in new and challenging directions.
