1 THE MIXING INDUSTRY I
Few Nebraskans who have not
given the matter serious study, have
any conception of the magnitude of
the milling industry in Nebraska. Al
though it is by no means as large as
it should be nor so large as it will
when Nebraskans grasp the great
truth that Nebraska wheat is the best
milling wheat in the world it is
growing at a marvelous rate.
One of the most difficult tasks
confronting the statistical department
of the state is to induce the small
manufacturers to make returns on
the volume of their business. The
small manufacturer thinks: "Oh. my
plant is so ainall that it don't cut any
figure," and so thinking he neglects
or refuses to make returns. They
forget that in a young industrial state
like Nebraska it is the aggregate of
the little industries that makes up
the tremendous total. This will ex
plain why it is impossible to make
inore than a "good guess" at the
tount of milled products produced
in Nebraska each year. But we have
enough statistics at hand to demon
strate that Nebraska is rapidly forg
ing to the front as a flouring state.
In 1910 fifteen counties in Nebraska
produced 177.300.000 pound.3 of flour
and 97,000.000 pounds of mill feed.
Bear in mind that there are ninety
two counties in Nebraska that per
haps eighty-five of them have flouring
nulls and that only fifteen counties
are included in the above total. In
the last biennial report of the bureau
of labor and industrial statistics is
contained perhaps the best statistics
of the Nebraska milling industry ever
gathered in Nebraska. At best that
is verv incomplete, but a study of the

ties making and shipping more than
5,000,000 pounds of flour during the
year 1910 were as follows:
Colfax . .
Dodge . .

Platte . . .
Chase . . .
Flour, lbs. Mill
. . siooo.ooo
. . 7,900.000
. . 6.800.000
. . 5.250.000
This does not represent the flour
output of the fifteen counties, as it
takes no note of the amount milled
and consumed at the point of produc
tion. Add to- this the surplus ship
ments of flour in the remaining coun
ties of the state, and we' have a grand
total of 276.000,000 pounds of flour,
or 1.380,000 barrels milled and shipped
away from the point of production. It
is only a geuss what amount was con
sumed in the city or town where the
mill is located, but it is pretty safe
to say that this would be about 10
per cent. Taking that for granted we
have the magnificent total of 1,760,000
barrels of flour as the total flour out
put of Nebraska mills during the
year 1910. This is a very conserva
tive estimate too conservative, but
made so as to avoid the charge of
This total mind you, includes only
wheat flour. It takes no note of rye
flour or corn meal.
But this grand total could be enor
mously increased if Nebraskans would
bear in mind a few facts. First, that
Nebraska wheat is the best milling
wheat in the world, and that the
largest mills in other states buy the
Nebraska wheat to grade up the
wheat of their own states. Second,
that Nebraska mills are making flour
equal in every respect tor the. mills "of
other states. Third, that by purchas
ing the home product Nebraskans
would not only be getting the best
flour in the world, but would be
building up a magnificent industry,
providing employment for hundreds
more men, securing the investment of
millions of capital and creating' a
larger and therefore more profitable
market for the" wheat raisers of Ne
braska. Nebraska mills are the equal of any
mills anywhere in the quality of their
Nebraska mills have the first ehoice
of the best milling wheat in the
Nebraska made flour is the equal
of the best flour made in any mill
anywhere in the wide world.
The duty of loyal Nebraskans is
A QUEER INDUSTRY.
One of the queerest manufacturing
industries in the country is located
at Columbus. Nebraska a factory
that makes woodensoled shoes. The
wooden soles are not made in Colum
bus. These are shipped in from a
factory in the east that makes only
soles. At Columbus the leather part
is made and then the soles put on.
Columbus is the center of a large
German settlement, which fact leads
many to suppose that the shoes are
sold largely to Germans. This is not
the case, however. The output is
shipped east and the shoes are worn
by scrubwomen and others who have
to work in dampness where leather
would soon become soaked and rot
quickly. Many are worn by miners,
who find them safer and more com
fortable, as well as more economical,
than leathersoled shoes.
The Columbus factory is not a large
one, measured by capital invested 6r
number of people employed. But it
does a flourishing business, and pro
vides steady employment for several
well paid mechanics the year around.
ITEN BISCUIT COMPANY
The story of the Iten Biscuit Co.,
with headquarters and largest plant
in Omaha, is the story of a wonderful
and thoroughly deserved success. A
few years ago, when the eracker trust
impudently withdrew from Nebraska
in order to punish Nebraskans for en
acting its pure food laws, the Itens.
who had spent their lives in the
cracker industry, took up the gaunt
let thus thrown down. There were
pessimists who said that the It ens
could never "buck the cracker trust."
But these enterprising men were not
listening to the pessimists. They had
confidence in the people. They be
lieved that the people would stand by
an independent company that would
"make good" in the quality of its
product and faithfully obey the laws
of the state. That their confidence
was not misplaced is evidenced by the
fact that today the Iten Biseuit Co.
is one of the largest biseuit companies
in the world: that its Omaha plant
today is far larger and better than
the one the cracker trust dismantled;
that it is building equally large plants
in St. Joseph and Oklahoma City, and
that its product is now reaching the
markets of the world.
A visit to the Iten plant in Omaha
will be a revelation to Nebraskans
It occupies a cement structure five
stories high, with light on all four
sides. The immense building is one
solid block of cement reinforced with
steel. There is not a crack or cranny
in which dirt can gather; from ship
ping rooms on the ground floor, .up
through the mixing department, the
baking department and the shipping
department, everything is as clean
and as neat as the most careful house
wife's kitchen. In short, the managers
of the Iten plants are "cranks on
cleanliness." This is carried out to
the extreme in every . department.
Every provision has been made for
the comfort of the employes lockers,
toilet rooms, bath rooms, dressing
rooms, all separated from the manu
facturing department. The mixing
and baking departments are on the
upper floors, far removed from the
dirt and filth of the streets, with
pure air and sunlight coming in from
all four sides.
The Iten Biscuit Co. is one of Ne
braska's largest industrial institutions.
It has earned the patronage of Ne
braskans by doing business right, on
a high plane, obeying the laws in
letter and in spirit, and turning out
the best product known to the industry.
AMERICAN SAVINGS BANK.
The American Savings Bank of Lin
coln is one of the oldest institutions of
its kind in Nebraska, and has earned an
enviable reputation in banking eirelea.
During the eleven years this banking
institution has been in business it has
paid thousands of dollars to depositors
in the way of interest on their savings
account. So thorough is its manage
ment, and so conservative its methods,
that it has never lost a dollar through
bad loans, nor has it ever been com
pelled to foreclose a mortgage. It has
always exerted every effort to secure
the interests of its depositors, and the
extreme eare with which every loan is
scrutinized by experienced officials is a
guarantee that those who intrust their -savings
to this eoneern are absolutely
secure. The Ameriean Savings Bank
pays 4 per cent interest on deposits,
compounded semi-annually. It invites
accounts of $1 and up, and uses every
legitimate means of helping wage earn- -ers
cultivate the savings habit. There"
are scores of pretty homes in Lincoln "
that were bought and paid for because .
of the habits of thrift and economy
taught by this banking eoneern. It is
a model of its kind.
