NOTES FROM THE NORTHEAST
Henry Doscher, of Star, visited at
the home of Thos. Dillet, of Page,
Farm sales are quite numerous and
changes of residents are unusual.
There appears to exist more or less
unrest with the farming element.
J. S. Nohle and wife entertained j
' some of the neighbors Sunday evening
with the radio they installed in their
home some time ago. They report an
j enjoyable and interesting evening.
Charley and Harry Johnson were
! on the Chicago market recently with
t ix carloads of fat) cattle. They re
turned home Thursday. The John
sons own and operate a ranch in Knox
< ounty near the Holt county line.
We are informed farm wages will
b# $50.00 to $65.00 ger month unless
farm product prices are stabilized.
We aro inclined to think that farmers
will farm less and intensify cultiva
tion. Less stock and better grades of
cattle and hogs. More good milk

One-Seventh of Population
The railroads of the United States use in one form
or another 30% of the Iron and Steel produced in
this country. Of the more than 1,600,000 workers
in that industry, the product of something like
500,000 is bought by the railroads.
Of Bituminous Coal the same railroads consume 28%.
Engaged in the mining of this coal are 600,000 workers,
of whom 168,000 are employed only because their product
is needed for the making of transportation.
They also use 26% of the lumber output, which takes
more than 600,000 workers to supply, and the railroads
are therefore indirectly employing 126,000 persons in this
The railroads have nearly two million employes of their
With their families, the employes of these few indus
tries represent 12,000,000 people whose support is derived
from the railroads. Including smaller related industries,
not less than one-seventh of the entire population is de
pendent upon railroad work.
The railroads could not prosper without the other groups,
nor they without the railroads.
