I find it would require acres of arable land and about acres in pasture or about one and a Ball acres per capita Ana workmen working eleven hours per Flay 300 Days in the year. These 000 Are but 12.3 per cent of the popu lation Able to work Etc luding the women children below sixteen years of age and men above fifty years. If in Stead of these men the whole Able to work were engaged they would need to work but Day in the year or if Tipy were to work 3 to Days in the year they would need to work Only one hour and Twenty two and one half min utes per Day again if All the Lui urtes of life were included it would re quire workmen or w per cent of the population Able to work. Two hours and eleven minutes per Day 300 Days in the year. With this work ing Power austrians would supplied with All hearts could possibly desire. But if again the whole men were employed hours and twelve minutes per Day they would need to work two months of the year Only.
