GRAND YOUNG NEBRASKA.
A Lot of Things for Nebraskans to

Lincoln , June 9. Of course Nebras
ka is a great agricultural state one of
the very greatest , " and Deputy Labor
Commissioner Maupln the other day.
"Other states may raise a greater
number of bushels of corn and wheat
and oats , but Nebraska raises more ,
wheat and oats per capita than any
other state. In all three of these
grains our yield per acre Is away yon
der ahead of the general average of
all the states. We've got 'em all beat
in output of hay , wild , timothy and
alfalfa. We have every reason to
boast of our agricultural resources ,
but agriculture is no longer our sole
dependence. It is the basis of all
wealth , to be sure , not only in Ne
braska , but everywhere else , but the
time has come in the history of Ne
braska when we may feel satisfied that
our agricultural supremacy is no
longer questioned or menaced , and
therefore devote some time and atten
tion to letting the world know what
we are doing along other lines.
"We are doing some manufacturing
in Nebraska and when we get wise
to our opportunities we will do more.
In 1908 Nebraska manufacturing plants
and industries turned out $151,000,000
worth of manufactured goods from
raw material raised mostly in Nebras
ka. That was $20,000,000 more than
the value of our live stock In 1908.
Men engaged in mechanical pursuits ,
Including transportation , received up
ward of ? 20,000,000 In wages in Ne
braska in 1908. Ever stop to think
what a great variety of articles we
manufacture in Nebraska ? I'll give
you a partial list , and It will help you
form some Idea of our growing im
portance as a manufacturing state. "
Deputy Labor Commissioner Maupln
then fixed up the following list :
Automobiles , alfalfa meal , aprons ,
artificial stone , awnings. .
Beet sugar , beer , buttons , brooms ,
baking powder , boots , boxes , brick ,
breakfast foods , butter , barrels.
Carriages , creamery supplies , candy ,
