Of of of of of of hot and he Best advertising medium vol. Xiv. The heart of the great Maumee Valley Defiance Ohio thursday february 26, 1903. Farmer discuss s inter Urban railways both Are Defiance bots he tells Why he thinks they Are a Good thing for agriculturalists. A the Way i look at these electric lines they Are a greater Benefit to the farming Community than to the cities a said a. B. Britton of Mondo a township to the Toledo Blade. A i admit that the building of these lines is of Mutual Benefit but it appears to me that the Farmer gets the Best of the bargain. A take for instance my Case. I own 370 acres West of Monclova. If i can induce any electric line to build through my farm i consider that it will be Worth at least ten dollars More per acre than it is now. This estimate in the increase in value is not too High. I have friends on the Toledo so Western and other electric lines who have actually realized More than $10 per acre increase on their farms on account of electric lines. A figuring on this basis and taking the strip of farming land which is affected by an electric line the actual increase to the value of farms would almost if not quite build a Road. A there is another feature to it besides the dollars and cents consideration. With electric lines giving the Farmers the same service that the City receives from Street cars country boys will not be leaving the farm As they have in the last 20 years. With Rural delivery telephones and electric roads the Only difference Between country and City life is that the country boys and girls will have better things to eat and purer air to breathe. In my opinion with Good electric line service business men of the City will begin to Migrate to the country. Nev will do More business in the cite and live in the country. A for my part i am willing to give any electric line the right of Way along my farm. I want it on my Side of the Road so that i can Load my produce and milk onto the cars from my barn and get into a car from my Doorstep. Every year hundreds of dollars Worth of produce goes to waste because we can not get it to the Market then our Dairy products can be sent to Toledo cheaper and quicker by electric line than by Wagon. All the Farmers on the Toledo so Western have to do is to put the milk in cans and set them on a platform at their barn and the electric line delivers in the City. A electric lines will also help pay our taxes without increasing the expenses of the county. I do not believe that the Farmers fully appreciate the advantages of the electric lines. Talk about Rural delivery Why an electric line is Worth ten times As much to the or. N. Or. Woodward has received a paper from Cheyenne Wyoming in which is announced the appointment of Fred w.
