To the Editor of The Bee: I am wondering If very many ot the people of Nebraska fully rcaflzo the wonderful Industrial changes that havo taken place In this county during tho last ten years und the effect these changes have upon the business ot 'farming. For instance, ten yeaai ago the factors output of nutomobles was 9,000. Last year 3,(j00 uutomoblles wtro built In tho United Htatcs nnd It Is safe to say that near 1,000,0X0 arc now in use. Today count lesa thousnnds of well paid men are en gaged In manufacturing, selling and run ning automobiles and theso thousands nre all consumers of farmers' products. The same Is true In similar degree of the moving picture tndustry. the. electrical Industry, tho cement Industry and many others. During tlie last ten years wo had 8,571, 000 Immigrants como to this country nnd of this number (USS.OOO settled north of "tho Ohio and enst of the Mississippi river, most all of whom engaged lp some kind of Industrial pursuit During tho last ten years we have had a most wonderful Increase In the num ber of men who have become so well-to-do that they do not need to, and do not, engage themselves In productive, labor, but do engage themselves In trading, traf ficking nnd bartering of one kind and, another by which tljcy are making money easier than the way they got their start; also a wonderful Increase In tho number of students In our colleges, of ministers, lawyers, bankers, clerks, bond, brokers. In surance agents, newspaper tnen, printers, delivery men about towns and cities, and almost countless others who nro' consum ers and have the money to buy with, but whose labors, however, useful, are not toward producing things to cat and the farmers feed them all. This great Industrial and professional growth has created a growing demand for meat, milk and butter, and here Is where Nebraska shines, but right here la where Nebraska needs to wake up to Its oppor tunity. On our 127,728 Nebraska, farms that average 20 acres eacK we have, 4 H01S milch cows, or three cows to each farm. On these Nebraska farms we have 1.BS3 silos, or ono to each seventy farms, nnd this In spite of tho fact that the demand for milk has become sq great throughout the eastern states that nearly every farmer who milks cows, as far west as Indiana, can get such a price for milk that It is sold Just as It comes from the cow, leaving a wide-open butter market all throughout the east for Nebraska farmer. ' Fair more, than halt of the counties In Nebraska, ace Just oa rich in' farming possibilities-as-Jefferson cqunty. Wiscon sin, and this s certainly no reflection upon Jefferson county, Wlsconsln'but this one Wisconsin county that la only twenty-four miles square ha wtthlu Its boun iJarlex more than tt.OW raltcli wows, ha ! forty-nine treameries. six cheese factor Irs, nnd five condensaries, and last year the farmers of that one county produced milk to the vnlue of X.&00.UJ0. and sold I more than iMM.COO worth ot young and ' old dairy stock. Last year our 1I7,7U Nebraska farms produced cereals, forage, root and fruit ciops to the value of $333,000,000 and the production of cream was only a side line. We would not havo to reach anything like tho maximum of our possibilities to have the sale of Nebraska cream atone go far aboWs the value of all of the eoreals, forage, root and fruit crops that we raised last year.
