CUT COST OF WHEAT TRANS
By utilizing a logging railroad to
transport wheat the county agent of
Wallowa county, Oregon, brought about
a saving of between $8000 and $9000
to tbe farmers in one section of tin
county. Attention of the state public
service commission was called to tin
fact that the logging railroad, by han
dling (he wheat could save farmers a
considerable part of the trouble and ex
pense of a 40-mile haul to a railroad
station. Upon the recommendation of the
commission the logging railway hauled
90,000 bushels of wheat, which was mov
ed at about one-half the cost of hauling
in the usual way.—Orofino Tribune.
