WASHINGTON. Doc. 29 Ten billion
dollars worth of products-5.0CO.OCM.OOO
of, cash Income a bumpor year In spite
of drouths and other setbacks, Is tho 1013
record of 6,000,000 American farms.
The. most successful year of husbandry
In the United States brought forth 56.100.
000,000 of crops, of which $2,896,000,000 wero
represented by cereals alone and $3,tX0,
000,000 worth of animals sold and slaugh
tered and anlmii products. Tho value of
the 1913 crops Is twice as great as that of
JE89; more, than 11,0000,000,000 over 1909 and
substantially greater than 1912. Of all tho
crops, however, It Is estimated that 52
per cent will remain on farms where thoy
were, raised and that 20 per cent of tho
animal production will remain. On that
basis the cash Income is estimated by
'the Department of Agriculture at $5,817,
000,000. But despite a record year of crop
values although the record of production
has fallen an.d the fact that tho number
of farms has Increased It per cent since
1910 until there are estimated to be 6,600,000
farms In the country, the department, in
a discussion of the subject made public
today, does not take the view that a
lower cost of living will follow as a con
sequence. 3Vo Lower Price for Consumer.
However desirable Increased production
on farms may appear to bo from tho
consumers' standpoint It does not follow
that such Increased production would re
sult In any increase in the cash income
per farm or per capita of farm popula
tion, pr that prices paid by consumers
would' bo any "lower," saya the report.
"'Had the tota production in 1913 equaled
or exceeded the .1912 production. It seems
probablo-'tliat' thocash' income per farm
woula'not ha .bcetTgreater "and might
have been less than In 1912; but it Is ex
tremely doubtful whether the coat to tho
consumer would have been any less be
cause retail prices are promptly raised
On a prospect of under production, but
are very slow to decline If there la over
production. "The long line of distributers and mid
dlemen between the farmer and the con
sumer arc .In a position to take advantage,
of the market and to a certain extent
control the market In both directions be
cause they arc bettrr organized to keep
infprmed of crop and market conditions
and to act promptly than cither farmers
or" consumers, who are not organized and
as individuals are helpless.
"The high prices paid by consumer?,
ranging from 6 'to nearly 600 per cent in
some cases more than the farmer te
celves, indicate there !h plenty of room
for lowering the cost of farm product
to consumers and at the same time
largely increasing the cash income per
farm without increasing farm produc
tion. A Marketing; Problem.
"This condition is undoubtedly a mar
keting problem which will have to bo
solved by better organizations of farm
ers and improved methods of marketing.
When, as the result of such organization
and Improved methods, the prlco of farm
Products can be maintained at a higher
level without Increasing tho cost to con

ustlano Garranza, the constitutionalist
chief, left hero today for Carbo, midway
between Henuoslllo and Nognlcs, on the
Arizona border. Tho reason for his un

Tho insurgent campaign is directed
against Guaynias, the California S;ult
port In southern Sonora, which has been
held so stubbornly by General Pedro
OJcda's federals. This was announced
from tho military headquarters here to
day, simultaneously with the departuro
for the south of the entire First regiment
of cavalry which set out on the march
Instead of entering.
Already there are In the vicinity of
Guaymus more than 2,000 rebel infantry,
for the most part composed of Yaqul nnd
Alnyo Indians, who have excelled in
the fighting In Sonora during tho pres
ent revolution The cavalry was left to
day to be used for scouting.
The desertions from tho federal garrison
nt Guaymus have encouraged greatly the
Insurgent commanders. Three federal ar
tillery men arrived early today at tho
Insurgents' base at Maytorena and re
ported that most of OJeda's gun crews
liad deserted their posts. This, it was
.believed., woyjd, encumber the federal ar
tillery. (t was reported also that only one of
the federal gunboats remains in Guaymus
constitutionalists 'mnj' use some heavy
artillery In an effort to eliminate the dan
ger of bombardment of the town from
the water. The location of .Guaymas, set
deep on a rango of hills, always had
rendered it difficult to approach, espe
cially in face of fire from tho bay, but
the Importance of capturing the town to
renew railroad communication between
Sonora and Slnaloa litis led military of
ficers hero to determine to make an At
tempt at Investment, nnd possibly an as.
saull of the federal position.

was today added to the list of natural

"Some of the most dektrurtlve insects
in agriculture are sued, as do their work
below ground and out of reach of any

of this," It continues, "there la prob
ably not an animal that It as ruthlessly
slaughtered as la this one."
