site and arrange for the erection o f a
number of buildings, including probab

dwellings. The railroad will put up a

which for years have produced large
quantities o f wheat. But the farmers
have been discouraged in grain culture
on account o f the expense in hauling it
across the country to the nearest rail
road shipping point.
