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 . ,1 1 e . 1 . .illoWinSF tauic. Htm iruui iuai ir- g0ine lilt-a 01 iia waituuuuc, a un ties making and shipping more than 5,000,000 pounds of flour during the year 1910 were as follows: County. Colfax . . Dawson . Dodge . . Saline . . Lancaster Gage . . . Buffalo . Nuckolls Antelope Clay Douglas . Hall .... Platte . . . Hamilton Chase . . . Flour, lbs. Mill ..4.000,000 . .20.000,000 ..17,000.000 ..13.000.000 ..12.000.000 ..10.000,000 .. 8.600.000 . . siooo.ooo . . 7,900.000 .. 7.300,000 . . 6.800.000 .. 6.4o0.000 .. 5.700,000 .. 5:300,000 . . 5.250.000 Feed, lbs. 21,690.000 9,600,000 7,650,000 2,400,000 8.200,000 15.000.000 3.400,000 5.300.000 3.000.000 1.400,000 15,400.000 750.000 1,100.000 1.100,000 1.250.000 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 exaggeration. 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 product. Nebraska mills have the first ehoice of the best milling wheat in the world. 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 obvious. 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.
