In a time such this wjjiter has been,
one half the world certainly doesn't
know how the other half lives, per
haps the first half has been too busy
trying: to make a go of things to no
tice whether the uther half were still
managing to exist at all. Farmers
who had little or nothing to sell, and
laborers who had no work were per
haps in the worst condition. Just how
the stringency of twelve such families
living in iinci around Valley City in
Barnes county was relieved, is an
interesting story.
Creditors are generally looked upon
as enemies when they come to collect.
This story has do however with a
Christmas For Kiddies.
At noon he called the "boys" into
the office. The- were a pretty glum
looking bunch for they were nearly
all men with families, and nothing
can make a man feel quite so mean as
to have no money to buy presents for
the kids at^ Christmas. Mr. Messer
had the cash ready as a surprise for
"Boys," he said, "Ijet's not work
this afternoon. It's Christmas Eve,
and we'll take a halt holiday. And
here's something to buy a little
Christmas cheer for the wife and the
The men went out with radiant
faces, and it was a merry Christmas
indeed that that straw money brought.
Unexpected money loften brings the
most pleasure. All had gone to work
with the understanding that they
could draw no money until the first
carload of tow was made and sold.
Then the work of tow making started
in earnest. The brains of the concern
were to be found in "W. H. Messer,
Joe's father, who though now confined
to his home through illness, still takes
a vital interest in the fibre plant with
which he was formerly connected as
buyer. He directed the activities of
the reopened plant from his bed.
There are three grades of tow,
medium, coarse and fine. Medium
tow was made here for the most part.
TTiis sells at about $40 per ton, F. O.
B. Valley City and up, while the
coarse tow a little of which was made
at this pliant sells at from $30 to $35
per ton.
t* Good Market For Tow.
Thero is a good market for tow as
it is used' extensively in making the
popular over-stuffed furniture. It is
also used to make an\mportant build
ing material known as "flax linum"
for houses. A car of medium tow
^brings in about $460 net.
When the Herald visitor was at the
t, plant recently, this novel company,
.which started work in November
^without a cent's capital, had paid for
"the keep of a dozen families for the
/winter, had paid off all the old debts
Ww-of these families, and had a good
balance in the bank. And all of this
had been done with straw which
would otherwise have been burned
and so .wasted.
Solved Problem Cor Many.
It was interesting to hear some of
'the men talking about what the work
this winter had? meant to them. Mr.
Anderson, the head mechanic and
superintendent said:

bills owed the medical firm of which
Dr. S. A. Zimmerman of Valley City
is the head, and ended up by having
the doctor owe the debtors in addi
tion to providing them with a living
for the winter.
Collecting Benefits Debtors.
During the past fall. Dr. Zimmer
man employed Joe Messer, a former
University of North Dakota student,
to collect his bills for him. Mr. Mes
ser drove through the country at
tempting to .collect from the farmers,
but he could get nothing as they had
no money. He saw in their fields piles
of flax straw which happened not to
have been burned, and he conceived
the idea of having these fanners haul
this straw to the fiber plant which is
about a mile out of Valley City, near
the high line of the Northern Pacific.
This plant had been idle for about a
year, its affairs being in litigatibn.
The First National bank which owns
the mortgage on it, gave permission to
reopen the plant, and allowed its use
rent free on condition that the users
put the equipment in good working
order at their own expense.
With only' courage for capital, Mr.
Messer went to work. He gave em
ployment to the men of twelve fam
ilies who would otherwise have been
unable to secure any work. This was
early in December, and a? it took a P'an!j...^e
good deal of time to fix up the old
machinery, no money seemed likely to
c-omc in before Christmas as there
would not be t.inje to make a carload
of tow and get it to market in time

did some quick thinking. He pur

baled it and shipped It to the Twin
Cities getting $5.50 per ton for it
from the Flax Linum Insulating Com
pany. He shipped four cars and the
money made on this transaction ar
rived on the morning of Christmas
Olson paid off his doctor bill of$28.89,
and had a balance left.
Some other farmers who owed
nothing to the doctor made money on
their straw, too.. Senator Frank
Ployhar had straw hauled off his
farm amounting to $20.25. Frank
Karnes made $11.24 off his straw that
would otherwise have been burned.
Alse Anderson hauled straw for cash,
making $58.80. and in two days' haul
ing a Mr. Hersberger made $24.40.
C. J. Lee had $23 worth of straw
hauled off his farm. L. C. Sundroni
paid off his doctor bill of $45.50 and
had a credit of $225.60.
Employment Given.
All the straw used in this winter's
operations was purchased from
farmers living near Valley City, and
the money of the straw gave employ
ment to laborers and mechanics as
well. One mechanic owed a doctor
bill of $54.34 which he could not pay.
He secured work at the fibre plant,
and by the first of February he had
paid $32 of it. and had kept" his fam
ily. Another laborer paid off his
doctor bill of $35. He was given an
advance of $17 for coal, and $5.75 in
cash, which he was working out when
the visitor was there. Another la

The fibre plant is all electrically
equipped, and is very up-to-date. The
building housing the machinery is a
long affair. At' one end there is room
for hundreds of tons bf flax straw.
The straw is carried into the workroom
on an endless chain, and is fed into
the bale buster. Then a men feeds it
carefully into the brakes. This is the
most important part of the process.
The straw then goes through the
pickers, and all the woody and foreign
substances are taken out of the straw,
including other coarser cereal straws.
From here it passes into the cleaners,
and thence into the press and is baled.
It is then ready to ship.
The waste is carried back and
dumped into a pit. It is later carried

Minneapolis, Minn., March 4.—New
high pricee followed by a sharp profit
taking reaction and ultimately by un
expected steadiness marked tbe wheat
trade for the week. May wheat
moved up to $1.49 S-4 Monday, a new
high, and July 'to $1.S9 1-2. |Then
came selling to take profltn atad the
market was called on to take more
than it ctauld carry without a break.
Seiliing did not take effect until Wed
nesday, when' stoploss orders were
caught and selling by eleventh hour
bulls who bought near top prices sent
the market sharply lower. At low
point On the setback May was down
7 »-4c from high and July 8 3-4c
under best price.
Recovery was surprisingly strong.
There was a comeback Thursday
which practically wiped out the pre
net loss. The market also
finished a rihade higher the succeed
ing session after an early bulge and
a midday break. The Friday close
was l-2c lower tor May and 2 l-2c
lower for July, compared with last
Saturday's close.,
Small estimated /farm reserves
helped tbe rally. Sf' W. Snow and
P. S. Goodman, Chicago statisticians,
issued estimates of farm reserves
which agreed with trade expectations
of March 1 estimated of small sup
plies back fa the country. Official
figures are due March 8 at 1:15 p. m.
SnkKw estimated reserves at 1J 6,-0*0,
000 bu. on government crop basis and
118,000,000 bu. on his crop figures.
Goodman made reserves 126,000,000
bu., or 95,000,000 bu. after deducting
$0,000,000 bu. for spring wheat seed.
Both estimated that, with visible sup
ply and country elevator and mill
supplies added, the total remaining
suggested a present exportable sur
plus near 25,000,000 bu. Present ex
perts are rrfnning around 2,000,000
bu. of U. S. wheat, so three months
would exhaust the surplus at tbe cur
rent rate.
Foreign markets still played a
prominent part in shaping the course
of the market. There was a first of
the week setback abroad, but Liver
pool and Buenos Aires led the rally
later. The stubborn strength abroad
was in the face of large Argentine
shipments, increasing visible supply
there aVid prospects the large amount
of wheat on ocean passage would be-

continental markets. Strength in
sterling exchange helped the advance,
the increase in buying power of the
British puutad being a signal for bulls
to buy on the theory that commodi
ties would be helped by advance in
the exchange market.
The early break was partly 'the re
sult of technical conditions, profit
taking sending prices back where
stoploss orders added bo the weight
on the market. In addition generous
snowfall throughout Kansas and
rains in most xf the dry area in Okla
homa and Texas, together with a
slowdown in cash wheat and flour
demand prompted caution on the*part
of buyers. For full measure there
was reaction abroad. Trade sentiment
did not turn bearish on the break,
especially after there was evidence
that leading longs offered support
around $1.42 to $1.43 here and
$1.42 3-4®$1.4« at Chicago.
Domestic cash situation was easier.
In tjie southwest futures went above
prices for deliverable wheat Flour
buyers failed to buy freely despite
the long advance. Lrtcal situation is
the strongest in the country.
Choice spring wheat is wanted but
premiums for the wheat under best
milling quality dragged several cents.

the range being 10 24c over May.
Durum was stronger, reflecting the
better exnort demand,. No. 1 amber
being 3 19c over Duluth May. Win
ter wheat held steady, with fair re
ceipts aftd a good demand for dark
varieties. Northwestern mills etill did
only a moderate to fair business.
Visible supply decreased little and
total is 41,278,000 bu.. against 28,
159,000 bu. last year. Canadian visi
ble also decreased only slightly. Can
adian wheat in bond in this country,
however, continued to move out for
over 70c and local May over 60c there
was profit taking after the good ad
vance and a 2 1-2 3c setback. Re
ceipts decreased at Chicago, but on
the other hand the bulge cut into the
export demand. Industrial buyers
also held off. I.«ocal cash market held

Chicago, March t.—An unexpected

a good deal to send the wheat market
up grade today after an
Enlargement of domestic milling de

the United States visible supply total
and with prospective big purchases
for Greece tended also to carry prices
higher upward at the last. The clos

July 1.21 8-4 to 1.21 ?-•.
Chicago, March •.'—Wheat de
clined today in the early transaction?,
the chief factor being lower quota
tions at Liverpool, where Argentine
and Australian offerings were reported
as liberal. A large increase of world
shipments. as compared with' the
previous week was also noted. As
sertions that fresh export business in
progress led to a rally in prices here,
but the effect failed to last. The
opening, which varied from un
changed figures to 1 1-4 lower, with
May $1.41 to 1.41 1-2, and July $1.19
to 1.19 1-4, was followed by an up
turn In some cases that went above
Saturday's finish, but then by a de
cided air around break in value.
Com and oats were depressed in
price by the action of the wheat mar
ket. After opening 3-8 cents off to a
like advance, with May 3 1-4 to
63 1-2, the corn market scored slight
general gains and then underwent a
material drop.
Oats started 1-S to 3-8 lower. May
40 5-8 to 40 7-8 and made a transient
upturn, but soon weakened again.
Declines in the value of hogs'and
grains pulled down provisions.
On the downward swing, the mar
ket went about 11 cents under recent
maximum prices for the May delivery,
but subsequently today's losses were
more than regained.

.red were among the comparatively,
few stocks to resist pressure o£,the
first hour on the stock exchange^ to
ri ay, rising 1 to 8 points, felling of
the motor group,, also independent
steels, popular tobaccos, rubbers ana
oils became more general before "OfJ
Gulf State* Steel, Chandler, Goodrich
preferred and United Fruit declined
1 to 1-2 points. Ann Arbor extend
ed last week's rise but other specula-^
tive and 'investment rails, as well an
shippers lost ground. Call money op
ened at. 4 1-2: per cent
Further divergence of speculative
sentiment was Indicated by the un
certain course In prices at the open
ing of today's stock market. Shorts
again directed their attacks upon the
motors, especially Chandler and'
Studebaker. American Tobacco, one
of last Saturday's heavy features, soon
reacted 3 points and International' Pit
per lost 1 1-2 points. Rails were mix
ed,, Canadian Pacific easing while 1
Union Pacific and Western Pacific
made fractional gains. Trading was of
moderate volume, last week's deficit
of clearing -house reserves causing
fears of a stifTer money rate.
Consolidated Gas bounded up five
points on the Judicial decision favor
ing the company in the 80 cent, liti
gation. Brooklyn Union Gas also Im
proved two points. Elsewhere the
market pursued a rapid downward
course, with some of the more vulner
able shares making 1 precipitate de
clines. The usual--speculative leaders
were quoted quite generally one to
two points below Saturday's final
figures. Pressure against the steel
group wwas traceable to the unfavpr-"
