Intrortyc'Cd in tlin house a hill providing
or the leap-ins of the coal and mineral
lands of the. Navajo country. This
neastirc was jirt-iiared by Mr. Hayden
un the sugKestion of Charles M. Shan
ion, fuel administrator for this state.
For several years efforts have T)?i.
made to onen up known valuable coal
lands on the fian Carlos reservation
but without avail. The following J3 the
text of Mr. Hayden's bill:
Be it enacted by the senate and
house of representatives of the United
States of America in Confrress as
sembled. That all coal and other min
erals within the limits of the Navajo
country consisting of the Navajo, l'u
eblo, Kan Juan. Western Navajo, and
Moftui reservations in Arizona and .New
Mexico, except that part of the.Moqut
reservation in Arizona which may
hereafter he set apart and reserved for
the exclusive use and benefit of the
Hopi Indians, .shall be and remain the
common property ot tne .avajo inne
of Indians, and every member of said
tribe fhall have an equal and individ
ual interest in the whole of said coal
and other minerals.
.Sec. J. That the secretary of the
interior is hereby authorized to lease
any deposits of coal in the Navajo
country in the form and manner pro
vided by this act through advertise
ment, competitive bidding, or such oth
er methods as ha may by general reg
ulations adopt, in tracts of forty acres
ach. or multiples thereof, and in such
hat Cost
Figures Show
Investigation shows that it
costs the average grocer about
1S of his tales to do busi
ness. Eighteen cents out of every
dollar taken in goes to pay
running expenses.
If you are a grocer, it may
cost you more or less, but if
it. costs very much more, the
situation needs looking into.
If it costs very much less, the
accuracy of the figures should
be. verified.
Tt costs the average dry goods
man 24 of sn.lp.sto do busi
ness, the. hardware dealer
about 21rr, the furniture deal
er about l!T per cent, the im
plement dealer about 17. the
jeweler about 27, the drug
gist about variety stores
SC.;., and so on.
These figures tire averages
and are valuable principally
for comparison. They should
not be regarded as applicable
to any particular store, hut if
your cost percentages are very
much . larger or smaller, it
might be well to look into the
situation carefully.
The figures given here have
been gathered in our search
for information in regard to
business problems. In har
mony with our policy of help
ful service, we are passing
them along for the good of
the cause, believing by every
man who makes the study of
his business a part of his
laily work.
Our own study of business
has brought us to an advanced
conception of the function of
a bank. This bank is more
than a safe depository for
money. It is our aim to give
service in business as well as
financial matters. If your ac
counts do not give you all the
information you want, consult
us. We may be able to offer
fiome helpful and practical
suggestions. Tou are welcome
to the benefit of what we may
have learned about solving
business problems.
