      ____________________

      Mr. Isaac Groff, who is the oldest cattle dealer on the Elmira market, was born near Waterloo. From his youth he was a good judge of pure-bred and fat cattle and is still conceded to be one of the best informed dealers in Ontario. He has been identified with the Elmira market for a quarter of a century and has bought and shipped an immense number of fat cattle, stockers and sheep. Some of the best fat cattle produced in Ontario, pass through his hands. He covers a large field and makes frequent shipments from Waterloo, St. Jacobs and Alma, besides those he is constantly making to and from Elmira. Although Mr. Groff lives on a farm, some distance west of Elmira, he operates from Elmira and is regarded as one of her most useful business men.1a
