ONE DOLLAR THE YEAR
Missouri in HHW had dairy products
amounting to nearly $13,000,000 in au
dition to what the state consumed at
houie. The value of surplus cattle for
the same year was $60,000,000, tne
surplus of all live stock, including the
famous Missouri mule, was nearly
140,000,000, Missouri is the poultry
queen of the Vuiou. She has an enor
mous annual production of tobacco,
hay, clover, grapes, honey, etc. The
surplus products of this character in
her 114 counties amounted, for 1909, to
over 340.000.000. Colliers,
Bully for old Missouri! "What a
wonderful old state she is, to be sure?
And how we rejoice that so influen
tial a periodical as Collier's Is giving
her justly deserved recognition.
Missouri was admitted to the Union
in 1:?0js and is therefore 103 years old.
Nebraska was admitted to the Union
just sixty years later.
Missouri population is approxi
mately 3,000,000, Nebraska's popula
tion is approximately 1,300,000.
In 1909 Nebraska shipped surplus
dairyproducts to the amount of $18,
000,000, In the same year she shippea
surplus live stoek amounting to $107,
000,000. In 1909 Nebraska's alfalfa
crop would have bought Missouri's
1909 tobacco crop sixty times over. In
1909 Nebraska's surplus products of
very description, not including manu
factured articles, amounted to more
'than $370,000,000, based ou returns
made by the railroads and express
companies to the Bureau of Industrial
In 1909 there was produced on the
farms of Nebraska $450,000,000 worth
of grain, grasses, live stock, poultry
and eggs, butter, etc., and in her man
ufacturing establishments $250,000,000
worth of manufactured goods.
If Nebraska's 1909 crop of alfalfa,
not including any other kind or hay,
had beeu loaded into standard freight
cars all at once, there are not enough
locomotives in any one state in the
Union today to pull them as one
The man who walked entirely
around Missouri would cover a dis
tance of about 1,000 miles. The eggs
laid by Nebraska hens in 1909 would
make thirty-six rings around the good
old state of Missouri.
There is one creamery company tn
Nebraska that sold more butter to
Missouri ans iu 1909 than any single
creamery in Missouri made.
The last available corn statistics for
the two states are for the year 190S.
In that year Nebraska produced 205,
00.000 bushels, which was 2,000,000
more than Missouri produced. In the
same year Nebraska produced. 44,
000,000 bushels of wheat, or just twice
as many bushels as Missouri produced
in the same year.
Yes, sir! Missouri is a grand
state sixty years older thau Nebras
ka. We are mighty proud of old Mis
souri, for it is the state of our nativity.
But if Collier's wants to get op
figures and live stock figures and
dairy figures and butter figuresfig
urea as are figures then Collier's will
have to come to Nebraska. We'll
admit that Missouri beats us on mules,
but when it comes to corn and wheat
and cattle and hogs we've got Mis
souri skinned a mile, and then some.
And just wait till Nebraska is as old
On December 15 Will Maupin's
Weekly will devote itself largely to
portraying Nebraska's industries,
their growth and their importance. It
will not be a collation of musty sta
tistics, but a live, virile review of Ne
braska's manufacturing institutions.
Statistics make dry reading, but the
facts told in brief, with comparisons
and incidents will prove interesting.
Nebraskans who read this particular
number are going to be surprised
that is, if they have not been keeping
themselves informed as to the wonder
ful progress of manufacturing in Ne
braska. . Of course Nebraska's chief indus
try is agricultural that and its al
lied industries. But Nebraska is much
more than an agricultural state. It
is rapidly forging to the front along
manufacturing lines. The total value
of her manufactured product in 1910
will be not less than half the value of
her agricultural production. Less
than one-half the population of Ne
braska is engaged upon the farm. She
has more wage earners than active
farmers. And her manufacturing in
dustries are growing more rapidly
than her farming industry.
But you will be able to real all
about it in the forthcoming "Nebraska-
Industries" number of Will
Noting that it is rumored President
Taft will confine his message to the
one subject of the tariff, an esteemed
contemporary remarks that it will be
the first time a presidential message
at the opening of congress was con
fined to one subject. Let's see; didn't
President Cleveland devote one mes
sage to the tariff issue?
It all depends upon your viewpoint.
If you think the McXamaras are guil
ty you will believe that an attempt
was made by the defense to bribe a
prospective juror. If you believe the
McXamaras are innocent you believe
that it is a "plant" put up by the
Merchants & Manufacturers associa
tion. It is unanimously conceded that Col.
John Maher's trenchant typewriter is
going to keep Judson Harmon's name
prominently before Nebraskans from
now until the April primary.

No, we didn't have turkey for our
Thanksgiving dinner, but glory be, we

Jim Hill says he doubts if there is
an agricultural college professor who
could handle a plow. And we doubt
if Jim could level up a low joint or
make out a conductor's train sheet.

Imported woolens go into these garments, the greater part are silk lined, while the tailoring is as

Kem served two terms in congress
with about as much effect as pulling

"When his term expired he came back
to Nebraska, remained a few months

congressman in cold cash.
Senator John II. Morehead of Rich

week, circulating around a bit and
breathing the political atmosphere
hile Senator ilorehead has not yet
made definite announcement to that
effect, it is well known that he will
be an active candidate for the demo
cratic nomination for governor. The
chances are that he will file for the
nomination shortly. Senator More
head is a successful business man
whose standing among his neighbors
is an index of his character. He
served in the last legislature and was
elected president of the senate. He is
now acting lieutenant-governor of the
