Why Llvlaa r-eaaee High.
KEARNEY,' Neb March M.-T) the
Editor el Tbe Be: 1 se that President
Tkf has asked oongrea to'saak Inquiry
Wb Uvtnc U so high la this country. It
seems tq m that one doesn't have to
look tar from home to find wby It la so.
Take the bread question first. Ths miller
her at Kearney pays A cents per bushel
for Wheat, which to its cents per pound.
sad sells th flour for 1 cent per pound
tad the bran, etc, for about tVk cents
pet pound, frblcb makes tb miller about
nt) per cent. ana. of course, a turps bis
money eight QC tn time per annum.
Hie profit is evidently too high. Doe
remedy would be for each county tq build
rt't P!U d grind th people' grain
Th next la th meat question.' The
butcher pays from t to I tea la per pound
gross tor stock to kilt' He sella It ou(
at retail tor from k to cents per pound
and scarcely any for toes than; 1 cent
per pound. ' Cattle drea away about t
per cent and boss about at per cent, ao
you se the meat men mak about' KO
per cent which I H per cent too much.
On remedy is for people to kill their
owa meat and eat las meat anyway. 8o
yen se th causes of tke klgh prices ef
meat end bread are tight here at horns
peopi hav cet so they want more profit
than they should bay.
