Or that wheat ground up will i-ost. This is what the farmer must (o get his worth of back -after it has gone through the mill. According to figures published by Ihe Census Department at Ottawa, the average cost of labor to grind a sack of flour was four-fifths per cent; of the cost of the This is taking the average of all the millfi in Canada.
