How shippers of all classes and prob ably the ultimate consumer will benefit from the decision of the railroad com mission in the Tittemore case appears in a partial analysis of the new rates. The saving on a single shipment under the new tariffs will be comparatively small, but in the aggregate on a year’s business the reduction will mean a sub stantial item to many interests. Edgerton is one of the large tobacco shipping centers, and many small con signments are sent to factories in Mil waukee and other parts of the state. While the reduction in freight might not reach the man who smoked the cigar, the maker will profit. If he buys a case of tobacco in Edgerton, which weighs, with the box, about 400 pounds, until the new rate goes into effect he will pay $1.46 freight to Mil waukee. After that the freight will be sl.ll. Boots and shoes shipped from Milwaukee to Edgerton, which is is a distance of 71 miles, will show the same reduction. In the case of the small dealer in fruits, for instance, who makes a small profit and takes chances on losses, this item will be welcome. Thousands of pounds of fruits are shipped daily from Milwaukee to in terior points. ♦♦♦ Notice In the report of the Albion Mutual Fire Insurance Cos. ’s losses paid in 1916 published last week, the loss of Otto Otteson farm fire should have read $99.00 instead of $9.90.

Passing of Edward Nelson. Edward Nelson, “ Huck, ” who has been a familiar character about this community for a number of years, succumbed to an attack of pneumonia at his rooms in the Schmeling block Sunday night. He was born in the town of Albion in 1851 and the greater part of his life he had been employed upon farms in Fulton and Porter, for many years working on the Orson Cox and John Bates farms. He was cared for during his sickness by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schmeling in their home, having been employed by him at farm labor during the past year. The funeral was privately conducted at the Tellefson Bros, undertaking rooms and burial took place in Fassett cemetery. Electrify to Coast. With 400 miles of its Pacific exten sion now operating electrically, the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul rail road announced, through A. C. Good now, assistant to the president, that the line will extend its electrification to the coast. The railroad now has 416 miles—from Harlowtown to East Portal under electrification, and Mr. Goodnow said the success of the new motive power has been so phenomenal that there will be no further delay in extending the electrification through the Cascade mountains and to the coast. It is declared that the ease with which the freight trains are handled over steep grades makes it imperative to proceed with the electrification. One motor does the work of three or four steam engines on the steepest grades, at a speed of fifteen miles an hour. For Sale Cheap— One electric wash ing machine in first class condition.
