NOW SCIENCE TELLS
WHY BRAN IS SO
GOOD FOR HEALTH
Kellogg's All Bran Has
"Bulk" and Vitamin B;
Also Healthful Iron
By using; Kellogg's Aix-Bsan,
millions of people have overcome
common constipation, and the head
aches, loss of appetite and energy
that so frequently result.
New laboratory tests show All
Bran supplies two things needed to
overcome temporary and recurring
constipation : "Bulk" to exercise the
intestines. Vitamin B to help tone
the intestinal tract.
The "bulk" in All-Bran is much
like that of lettuce. Within the body,
it forms a soft mass. Gently It
clears the intestines of wastes.
Further experiments prove All
Bran provides twice as much blood
building: iron as an equal amount
by weight of beef liver.
Eat this delicious cereal and avoid
pills and drugs. They cause artifi
cial action, and often lead to harm
ful habits.
Try two tablespoonfula ot
Kellogg's Aix-Bran daily sufH
cient to overcome most types of con
stipation. If your intestinal trouble
is not relieved this way, see your
doctor.
All-Bean has a delicious, nut
sweet flavor. Enjoy as cereal with
milk! or cream, or use in making
fluffy bran muffins, breads, omelets,
etc Recipes on the red-and-green

LillardPigs
At Fair Here
Are Winners
. First "new arrivals" at the
fairgrounds this year were eight
little black and white pigs, moth
ered by a huge Hampshire sow
belonging to the string of 45
hogs . exhibited v by the LUlard
stock farms of Arlington, Texas.
This string of swine arrived a
week, ago today from the mid
dle west.
Incidentally, no other stock
breeder In the various shows has
so many ribbons displayed as
those which hang over the LU
lard string. The long lines dis
played there are conservatively
estimated at 400, though Mans
field "Chicken" Polk. , black
faced attendant, says no one has
bothered to count them.
Lillard himself Accompanies
the string. He has two on the
circuit this year, although three
Is the usual number. Each year
his hogs spend about five months
on the fair- circuits. In the Mon
tana, Missouri - and Washington
state fairs which the string here
has been shown at this year, the
winnings have been heavy.. He
has three breeds, Duroc, Polands
and Hampshire.
Last year, the string toured
fairs in 26 states, which is
possibly why no one disputes the
sobriquet, "America's Cham
pions." Albany Dormitory

TAX BILL PROBLEM
RffiJUCDS
Northern Pacific Bill is
51000 an Hour in
1931, Says
The Northern Pacific railway's
tax bill la 1131 on Its operating
property. Its lands and its sub
sidiary company's property was
21000 for every hour of the
entire- year.
F. W. DeGuire, executive as
sistant of that railroad, in Salem
yesterday, referred to the heavy
taxes railroads pay in discussing
the problems now confronting
tbe steam lines. He pointed out
that his railroad's total tax bill
on operating property last yeart
was 57.783.000. on its lands
1644.000 and $302,000 oa the
property ot the Northwestern Im
provement Company, a wholly
owned subsidiary, making a total
of SS.729.000.
He also cited figures to show
that the railroads are large em
ployers aad spenders even in a
period of depressed conditions.
"Production of transportation
la this country today is in excess
of consumption and, to a large
extent, the ills or outstanding
transportation agencies are trace
able to that fact." Mr. DeGuire
continued.
Costa Cut Impossible
"Under conditions which now
exist, transportation is unable to
scale down Us operations to the
level of the business available.
"Because there is too much
transportation, a new. era In
that field ot business Is dawning.
This new era will place in its
proper relationship each ot the
agencies of transportation the
railroads, the common carriers on
the highways, the airplanes, the
pipe lines and even tbe private
highway carriers. There is def
inite place for all of them, but
salient facts stand out:
"The railroad continues to be
the essential carrier and no sub
stitute has yet been devised.
"To hsndicap a railroad with
heavy burdens, unsound regula
tions and subsidized competition
is to handicap alio the territory
the railroad servws.
"Unless unfair burdens now
Imposed upon the railroads are
removed, business generally will
continue to be depressed because
an excess of transportation,
some of It subsidized, will impov
erish the essential carriers.
"Every community served by a
railroad Is certain to be Impover
ished if its railroad is Impover
ished." Convicts Ride
