Fresh Country Produce Being Loaded Into Truck for Quick Shipment In
to Near-by City.
Our faulty distribution of food
stuffs and other necessaries of llfo is
responslblo to a considerable degree
for high prices to consumers. Ofllclal
Investigations show that It costs as
much to deliver farm products from
railroad terminals at New York to city
consumers ns to ship them by rail
from points ns distant as Buffalo, or
to deliver a ton of conl In Chicago
ns to ship It from tho mines In south
High Cott of Hauling.
On the other hand tho cost of haul
ing products from tho farm to tho
shipping points and to tnko manu
factured goods buck to tho farm Is
doublo or triple what It need be. These
transportation costs at both ends of
tho rail haul must bo ndded to tho
prices charged for farm nnd factory
products nnd tho consumer "pays tho
Rail and water haul nro tho cheap
est forms of transportation nnd there
Is no prospect of any substantial re
duction of freight charges. The only
possibility of lowering tho cost of
transportation materially lies In tho
haul nt either end of tho rail and wa
ter routes that is, In haulago by
highway. There nro tremendous pos
sibilities In savings In this direction.
Careful Investigation by tho depart
ment of agriculture last year show
that haulago from farms to shipping
points costs less than half ns much
by motor truck ns by horso and wagon,
oven under present conditions of tho
highways. Thus, tho average cost of
hauling wheat by wagon was 30 cents
n ton for each mile, while tho cost
with motor truckg was only 15 cents;
to haul corn by wagon cost 33 cents
per ton-mllo ns agnlnst 15 cents by
truck, and to haul cotton by wagon
cost '13 cents compared with IS cents'
by motor truck.
Trailers Lower Rates.
Even these comparatively low rates
for hauling with motor trucks can
be cut In half by the general uso of
trailers, since tho hauling capacity
of a truck can bo doubled or even
tripled In many enscs by towing ono
or two loaded trailers behind tho
truck, using n scml-traller with tho
AUTO DRIVING IS
San Francisco Physician Sees
Not Only Physical, But
IS STARTLING HYPOTHESIS
Takes Exception to Often Repeated
Objection That General Use of
Motors Is Deteriorating
That motoring is probably the finest
form of exercise for tho nvcrugo man
nnd woman of today Is a somewhat
startling hypothesis. Most of us do not
consider tho driving of n motorcar in
the light of cxcrclso nt nil. In fact
ono frequently hears regret expressed
thnt tho general uso of motor vehicles
has Interfered with habits of exercise
thnt nro Important to our natural well
being. A San Francisco physician takes ex
ception to this view of motorcar driv
ing nnd shows that Instcnd It Is posi
tively bencllclal. He classifies Its bene
fits tinder three heads physical, men
tal, and what ho terms volitional.
"It Is thu muscles of tho arms, to
gether with thoso of tho chest nnd
abdomen, that pre-eminently nnd habit
ually suffer," ho says. "Hero wo find
lnck of development, softness, flabbl
ness nnd the accumulation of unwhole
some fat. And It Is precisely hero that
tho steering wheel. of tho car may como
to the rescue. It Is true that the
handling of tho wheel, particularly If
tho car Is small, Is not n very stren
uous form of exercise, but that, In
stead of being a defect, Is nn essential
"Their best interests nro met by
precisely the kind of efforts thnt tho
steering wheel, supplemented by tho
handling of tho gear and brake- levers,
requires, namely, mild but persistent
action, which Involves, first nnd liiRt,
virtually all tho muscles of tho arms,
chest and abdomen.
"When you drive a car 40 or CO
miles over nverago American roads
or n fraction of that dlstonco In tho
city, you glvo your arms and torso n
courso of purposeful cnllsthenlcs that
redounds directly to tho benefit of your
muscles, arteries nnd heart, nnd Indi
rectly, but no less significantly, to tho
benefit of your dlgestlvo opparntus, and
tho organs of elimination, and blood
nnd nervous systems."
Tho doctor proceeds to point out
that, In addition to tho exercise, the
motorist has been In the open air, buf
feting the winds, Inhaling ample quan
tities of oxygen to meet the Increased
need of the accelerated currents of
blood corpuscles, nnd that digestion
and assimilation are thereby facili
tated and tho toxic products accumu
lated through former inaction are In
Increased measure oxidized and eliminated.
