Another R155 Bullseye

THE FAR. & SHIP. L. TOB. WH. CO.
JUL
29
1898
CINCINNATI.O.

Dave Thompson sent in this cancel this morning that he found hiding behind another stamp in a recent Ebay lot he acquired.  I've been trying to figure out the meaning of this cancel, as I am certain he has been doing too, but with no luck so far. 

Can anybody help identify this company?

Editors note 6:00 PM Nairobi time:  Tim Kohler ID'd the L. TOB. WH. CO. portion as Leaf Tobacco Warehouse Company.  A quick search yielded Farmers and Shippers Leaf Tobacco Warehouse Company.
