Mr. August Urockmann, the gentle
man who was here a few weeks ago
looking for a location to stnrt a
cigar factory. Is on his road to Lake

and will arrive here this week. He
has leased the brick restaurant
building where he will manufacture
flue cigars. He is highly recommend
ed, and has sufficient means to carry
on an Independent business. Mr.
lirockmann traveled all over North

and found no better location than

Is likely that others, suchasabakery
and a steam laundry, will be estaln

Packers' Striks in Chicago.
That the consumers bear the bluVit

This loss Is born by. the poor man.
