Thus Kansas figures show an
Increase of S.7 per cent In the five years
In the number of steam laundries In the

Missouri comes to the front with a
total of 177 steam laundries. They do a
heap of "washee" In Kansas City and In
Pt. Iouls. That Is what accounts for
bringing the figures up so high. The
total rnnital Investment In st" in I tii

almost $l.(W0.iV less five years hj.
Iowa has 176 laundries, thoiiKh it had

capital Invested In tho fewer laundries
is greater by $'.,! t.ian It mi when
there were more inund les. This Is taken
to mean that In the consultant! .n larger
plants are built to do the same or more
work, and consequently fewer, but larger
plants, take more capital.
Illinois has 4."S steam laundries, tt had
