with a market for an immense quantity
of refuse which now is totally lost, and
would also prove a .paying investment
for the originators.

The Frank Burg Cigar Factory with

New Ulm is to enjoy the distinction
of having the largest grain elevator in
the state, with possibly one exception,
outside of the Twin Cities and Duluth.
On Friday of last week the Eagle Roller
Mill company let the contract for the
erection of an elevator which will have
a storage capacity of 200,000 bushels
and will cost about $40,000. The suc
cessful competitors for the contract were
Honstain Bros., of Minneapolis, one of
the leading firms of elevator builders in
the north-west, and work will be com
menced this week as soon as the neces
sary material can be got on the ground.
In the neighborhood of 100 men will be
employed, the greater number of whom
will be hired here if possible, and it is
expected that the elevator will be ready
tor the reception of gram by August 1.
The new building, which will adjoin ele
vator "C," will occupy a ground space
of 46x122 feet and will be 96 feet high,
veneered with corrugated iron, with
galvanized steel roof. The power re
quired to. operate the new plant, some
200 horse power, will be transmitted
from the present power plant of the
mill a system of cables. With al
ready 19 elevators outside of this city

STATS Superintendent of Public In

state has increased in population from
500,000 to 2.000,000 in that time, and
the school population from 107,044 to
405,000. The. number of teachers in
1875 was 2,399 and the average month

of teachers in the state in 1900 is-13,000
and the wagesJiaye increased to $40 per
month. In 1857 there .were 2,975 school
