The Teacher's Practical Library
: A Progressive State No other State in the Union offers greater inducements for the location of Industries and Manufacturing Plants than Wisconsin, with its limitless Iron Ore deposits, abundance of Hardwood Timber, numerous Clay, Kaolin and Marl Beds, and other advantages.
The Wisconsin Central Lines penetrate the Center of the State, and Manufacturers can find excellent locations for Plants, with facilities for reaching markets everywhere. Reliable information will be cheerfully furnished upon application to W. H. Killen, Industrial Commissioner, Milwaukee, Wis.
Home-Seekers will find the lands in Northern Wisconsin desirable, and splendid Hardwood Farming Lands adjacent to the Wisconsin Central Lines can now be purchased at a very low figure and on easy terms.

In the Lake Regions of Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota, along the lines of the Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway, are hundreds of charming localities preeminentlyfi tted for summer homes, nearly all of which are located on or near lakes which have not been fished out. These resorts range in variety from the full dress for dinner'' to the flannel shirt costume for every meal. Among the list are names familiar to many of our readers as the perfection of Northern summer resorts Nearly all of the Wisconsin points of interest are within a short distance from Chicago or Milwaukee, and none of them are so far away from the busy marts of civilization" that they cannot be reached in a few hours of travel, by frequent trains, over the finest road in the Northwest-the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. Send a two cent stamp for a copy of "Vacation Days' giving a description of the principal resorts, and a list of summer hotels and boarding houses, and rates for board, to Geo. H. Heafford, G. P.
