ports That a Profit May Confi
dently Be Looked For.
The business of breeding pearly
mussels artificially has been carried
so far by the United States fisheries
bureaus that a money profit Is confi
dently promised.
To produce in this way 1,000 baby
mussels costs about 20 cents. When
they are full grown 13,000 of them
will weigh a ton. Thus the cost of
producing a ton of pearly mussels of
market size (if all survived) would
be, as exactly reckoned, $2.08. Assum
ing a loss of 50 per cent, the cost
would be $5.36.
Pearly mussels occasionally yield
valuable pearls, but commercially it
is the shells, utllizabie for mother-of-pearl,
that are Importantly to be con
sidered. The fisheries bureau has devoted Its
attention wholly to the propagation of
superior varieties of mussels, the
shells of which have at present time
a market value of $35 a ton.

New Tork. The bureau of railway

dum comparing operating results on
British and American railroads, which
shows that the average trainload In
Great Britain for the six months to
June 30, 1920, was 150 tons, while that
for the United States for the same
period was, 710 tons. Operating and

The average freight train load In
the United States In 1888 was 176

advances, with the curious coincidence
that in 1888 the average traínload In
this country was greater than the Brit

same as that for one or two of the In

Quoting these figures, a bulletin of
the Association of Railway Executives
says: "An important statistical unit
In the new English statistics Is aver
age revenue, or receipts per ton per
mile: The average gross receipts per
ton-mile in England for. the month of
January, 1920, were 2.328 cents, and
were Increased to 3 cents In the month
of June, 1920. This increase was due
to the higher level of freight rates
made effective on January 15, 1920.
The average for the six months ended
June was 2.8G6 cents. These average
are gross receipts, and include charges
for collection and delivery. Excluding
such charges, the average Let receipts
per ton mile were: First four weeks
(to January 31) 2.107 cents; second
four weeks (February), 2.689 cents;
month of June, 2.708 cents; average
for six months, 2.629 cents.
'"The average receipts per ton-mile
for class 1 railroads in the United
States, which correspond to the Brit
ish averages, exclusive of collection
and delivery charges, were .972 cents
for the six months to June 30, 1920.
"For the six months ended June 30,
1920, the class 1 railroads in -the Unit
ed States carried 189,907,457,000 ton
miles of revenue freight, earning $1.
847,217,911. with an average receipt
per ton-mile of .972 cents. According
to the new British statistics, the aver
age receipts per ton-mile for the six
months ended June 20, 1920, were 2.629
cent 8.
"If the average receipts per ton
mile which have been collected by the
British railways during this six
months' period had been 'charged
against the freight traffic carried by
the class 1 railways In the. Uhited
States, for the tlx months ended June
30, 1920, the latter would have earned
$5.455.327.11S Instead of $1,847,217,911.
"In other words, British rates ap
plied to American traffic would have
cost the shippers of the United
States 3.600.000.000 in six months, or
$7,200,000,000 per year.
British Cars Smaller.

the class 1 railways in the United

1920. were carried by an average train
consisting of 30 cars averaging 20
tons each.
"If the railways in the United States
had used British cars, which have an
average load of six tons. In moving
the tonnage quoted above they would
have moved trains consisting of 120
cars, or more than Vhree times the
nunilwr of cars per train.
"In basiling the 207,2S1,000.000 ton

period, class 1 railways in the United

load of 150 tons to the ton-mileage

Farm Abandonment Has Created
Most Serious Situation.
Food Supply Threatened Through the
Drift of the Population to the
Cities Now Is Great Opportu
nity to Take Up Land.
The question, "How is the country
to be fed If the population continues
to drift to the cities?" is one that
should create an agitation that will
bring about a reply that will mean a
solution. The census, recently com
pleted, reveals a situation truly alarm
ing, one that has never been known
in the United States before. The ur
ban population Is now greater than
that of the rural districts by about
4,000,000. Cities and towns, each with
more than 2,500 Inhabitants, contain
54,318,032 persons, or 51.4 per cent of
the total population, while the farms
and smaller towns together claim only
51.399,739 persons, or 48.6 per cent of
the total.
As Is pointed out by an Influential
Chicago dally, "the drift to the cities
is thus proved- and, reduced to figures,
showing a top-heavy condition of the
Industrial life."
Farming is and must remain the
basic Industry of the world, and cer
tainly should remain the basic indus
try of a nation with a continental
area like ours. It is small profit to
gain the markets of the world with
manufactured goods If agriculture has
decayed so badly as to furnish an un
certain subsistence for our people, and
fluctuating crops are reflected In price
changes that upset the economic Ufe
of the country. Yet we are within
measurable distance of that condition.
If the present or recent drift toward
the cities continues.
Most writers on this topic take it
for granted that young folks go from
farms to cities merely to make tnore
money. Doubtless that Is something
of a motive at all times and was a
very strong one In the period Imme
diately after the war, when city Indus
tries paid wages totally Impossible for
farmers to rival.
Tt Is hoped that this drifting has
reached Its apex. Unless It has, and
there still remains a possibility of Its
continuance, the effect cannot be fore
told. The great wave of manufactures
for war purposes has ceased, and with
It the number of those employed In
factories 1s diminishing by thousands
daily. It is therefore hoped that there
will again be heard the slogan, "For
ward to the Land." If prices to which
farm land has reached are prices pro
hibitive to many, the opportunity is
still open elsewhere. There are states
possessing large areas of good land
that may still be had at prices within
the reach of many, and It is doubtless
true that In self-preservation it will
be necessary to bring these lands un
der cultivation. The prices are not
high, considering their value. Then,
too. there are the lands of Western
Canada, that hold out an Inviting pros
pect. Reports from there show that
the prosperity of the farmers there is
not mythical. Farming there Is con
ducted on scientific principles, and
the climate Is such as appeals.- The
production amply repays all the ex
penditure that may be made. The
social conditions are of a character
that make farm life a pleasure, and
tends to keep the young man and
young woman from pining for urban
life with so many dráwbacks. if con
ditions as above mentioned, showing
such a large percentage of population
In the cities and towns, continues, they
will require food. The opportunity te
supply It Is by the means suggested.
Go forward to the farm, become In
dependent and become a factor in
supplying the world's needs in -cattle,
sheep, grain and such other commo
dities as the farm will produce and
the resident of the city requires.
