The Fuller-Goodman company received another big cargo of cement on the steamer Edward Buckley which arrived in port on Sunday evening, this being the second consignment that the company has obtained in the past month. A large crew of men were put to work Monday morning unloading the boat. There is an unprecedented demand for cement from all over the county on account of the large number of silos that are under construction and which have been contracted for by the farmers the growth of the dairying industry being accountable for this state of affairs. The Buckley had on 3,000 barrels of cement. A large number of farmers who had orders in for the material loaded their wagons from the boat. The material will find its way to all parts of the county as well as in the northern part of Kewaunee county, where the company has yards. No one ever dreamed ten years ago that cement would be shipped here in this manner and it only goes to show the wonderful increase in the use of this material for building purposes.
