Out of evc>ry dollar taken In ZC> cents was profit. The C. P. n. charges l.'> cents for ! hauling a bushel of wheat from Clares-i,;,,,, jj preposterous 'holm to Kort Wllllnm. Of that l."> Some more of the Increased price goes to makln.g millionaire millers. When wheat leaves the millers' hands and goes into the hands of the wholesalers or jobbers, it is 14 cent? a bushel higher than it was before. Tlic miller, on an average, charges 14 cejits for grinding a bushel of \�-he^at, but the men in the elevator, efiglne room and mfll room only get a little less than three cents of this 14. The other j eleven cents goes to make millionaires. If necessary I could show you how for an average of 6S cents per bush-.|a Jcbht- will charge a retail store el, and took the elevator's grade and keeper 2.t cents per hundred on flour! weighta and dockage. Before hauling j and then have the order filled and the rest of the crop I look a two bush-j shipped from the mill. ! el sample to all the elevators' in two I towns. Eight buyers examined the grain, all graded it the same. No. n, and offered the same price; no cents per bushel. I I decided to ship it, and loaded what | Millers charge I had left. 1,300 bushels, in a car, andiJot'bers charge sold it at Winnipeg through the Grain tirowers' Grain Co. I received a weight of 1,346 bushels, and a net price of 73 1-2 cents, a gain of 16 bushels, a raise of two grad^es, from .No. h to .No. 3, and a net gain of IS 1-2 cents per bushel. My profit by shipping that one car was 1274.31. or the elevator's price. Now look at a bushel of wheit as It passes through the different stages; Farmer gets 6S. �Speculators charge Railways charge .. ..20 15 14 11 60 cost 114 cost 10 cost 4 cost 0 years. i:!y the efforts of those men the spread between tho price given to the producer, and demanded from tho con.=;umer hnB been reduced a little, and as a result the price is somewhat belter to both. We are kept from enjoying the fruits of their victories by a tariff wall that the reciprocity agreement j will throw down. Now It Is up to the farmers of Canada to throw open tho doors of l.'.int market and got the I hi.nher prices that his cousin across the line gets. .As soon as tho Cnnadlan farmer hisj access to that tna:-ket the tolls de-' manded in Canada will be reduced. The grain will not need to go to .Minneapolis. Tlie very fact that It can go there will make It unneces.-ary. The access fo that market will be like CONTAINS NO ALUM STHEWHIT)MT.LIGHTESr,ll BAKING POWDER BUSTED Dm t* tl) Total .......... 60 coal lo'^ By these four handler* the price of the wheat has been pretty nearly doubled, but only 15 1-2 cents has' been paid out for actual expenses. The man who buys flour must pay all these S per cent, of I costs, but the farmer gets none of the I benefits. BUNCH OF HARVESTERS ARE STRANDED AT GRASSY LAKE The .Mounted Police headituartcra carrying a gun. If a man has a pun ] hero have been -advised by their sta-and the other fellow knows It. he hev-' tjon at Grassy Lake that a hundrt-d I If 1 had let* tlje elevator company have that Braii> ttiW would have pocketed that 38 per cent., ai|d 1 would ;have been poorer by $274.31. If eight elevators showed such unanimity In It Is the toll exacted by our robber barons of the twentieth century that keeps the farmer and the working man poo;-, w'llle our crop of millionaires grows daily. cr has to use it. The fact tihat he has it and can use it is enough. 1 Give us reciprocity and the eleva-' tor tolls, railway rates, millers' chiu-, ges, and tho rest will fall like a house | of cirds. The farmer will get a bet-! ter price for his wheat, and the work-' ingman will get his flour cheaper, and j wheat will follow its same course. Of i course, wc may not make as many millionaires, but we can easily get along without them. Yours truly, INTl;:UI':STEn FAR.MER.
