It's nice to see a Sandwich sheller on the front page, even though there is no accompanying story anywhere in this newspaper.
By the 1890's corn was taking over in many states as the primary grain grown in many Northwestern states, replacing the ever precarious wheat crops. During this transition, Sandwich Manufacturing was carefully following the changing and growing requirements of the various corn producing states. As fast as new regions became ready, Sandwich was ready with machinery fully suited to the needs and requirements of these farmers. They had branch houses in key locations in many states, stocked and ready to supply the growing demand for reliable equipment. By the 1890's, Sandwich had been making the celebrated Sandwich - Adams shellers with unparalleled success.
