Men were sweating, but they were making progress, and each day saw several more miles of railroad laid. In 1882 the Chicago & Northwestern road came id Algona, When 66 miles Of track were 'laid between Eagle Grove and Elmore. , This is the C. & N. W. centennial year. The road is the successor of the Toledo; & Northwestern, which Was or- ganised in 1869, and which laid the north-south line through Algona and Kossuth county. ^ What It Meant Railroads have come a long way since 1882.

Farmers who had previously sold their wheat and dairy products and milk only to consumers in the countryside now were able to ship over greater quantities of foodstuffs, cattle, hides and grain to expand urban markets. The era of agricultural expansion was followed by development of the natural resources of the Middle West. A Big Taxpayer In 1946 the North Western paid Kossuth county taxing districts $24,737.80. This total includes $15,014.76 to the school district, $8,000.46 io the county, and $1,835.81 to cities and villages. The balance went to townships, cemeteries, libraries and for road levies. In addition to that, a fair number of North Western employees are residents of Kossuth county, and good citizens.
