There are very few who have done more towards colonizing the fertile timber lands of northern Clark County than the man whose portrait appears here, K. Rosholt, of Thorp, Clark County, Wisconsin. Hundreds are the now prosperous farmers who have secured land through him, not only in Wisconsin, but also in Minnesota. In the fall of 1889, Mr. Rosholt secured the large tract of hardwood timber land lying in the immediate vicinity of Thorp, when he changed his office from St. Paul, Minnesota, to the place nmed above, and at once commenced retailing his lands to actual settlers, and as to his success it may be stated, that during the season of 1890, over one hundred settlers bought land of him. Mr. Roholt believes in aggressive advertising, and his advertisements can be found in almost any Swedish, Norwegian, German or Polish paper in America. Many a poor working-man, who worked hard from morning till evening in the crowded cities or in the dangerous mines, have read his advertisements and concluded to emigrate, and now have comfortable home in the healthy timber country and are doing well.
