Harvest Hands Go North
Railroads Overrun With Mon Boating
Their Way to Wheat Fields.
Omaha, Neb., July 23. Two
hundred thousand dollars’ worth
o f railroad transportation has
been stolen from Nebraska rail­
roads this year by harvesters
"beating” their way to wheat
fields. This estimate was made
at the headquarters o f the State
Railway Commission.
Freight trains o f all roads have
been overrun with nonpaying
passengers for the last six weeks.
The railroads have made little
effort • to prevent the practice.
There is a law in Nebraska mak­
ing the stealing o f a railroad ride
a felony, but no effort is being
made to enforce the statute.

Need of Organization Among Farmers and Fruit­
growers and Benefits That May Result
On various trips 1 note from time
to time the advancement of var­
ious parts o f the country.
Some ten years r.go I was at
Puyallup, Wash., when there was
considerable agitation and more
aggravation among the farmers
in that vicinity owing to the fact
that they were having difficulty
in marketing their products. A
few claimed that they should raise
more and better, the rest rebuted
their argument with, what’s the
use, we can’t sell what we now'
produce. The former few declar­
ed that was exactly the reason
that they should raise more, so
that they need not depend on
home market but could ship in
quantity to whatever part o f the
country needed their produce, and
that they should raise the best
quality possible so that they could
establish a distinct brand that the
consumers might feel that they
could rely on. With this resolu­
tion in mind these few energetic,
progressive farmers put their
heads together and organized the
Puyallup and Sumner Fruit Grow­
ers Association. Today they have
1400 members. A recent state­
ment shows that they are now do­
ing more than $1,000,000 business
annually. While the total capital­
ization of the Association is but
The Association gives to its
members two advantages, First it
furnishes a market for their pro­
ducts at a price which invariably
is above what other farmers get
and second it furnishes their sup­
plies, such as crates fertilizer etc,
at a low er rate than other farmers
pay. These two advantages make
the Puyallup and Sumner valleys
among the most prosperous com­
munities in the world. I believe
the Little Luckiamute valley is
capable of growing just as good
and as many berries per acre as
the Puyallup district, in fact Falls
City district has the advantage of
having different classes of soil
suitable for raising different var­
ieties of fruit, vegetables, etc.,
which should give a longer and
more profitable harvesting season.
But if the Falls City farmers
make a success they must get
together, raise more so they can
ship in quantity, and the very
best o f quality so as to establish a
distinct brand that the consumers
throughout the world would seek.
The following newspaper clipping
should give you a better idea of
what grew out o f the small begin­
ning of the few men who had the
nerve to put their shoulder to­
gether and push ahead.
$37,500 Paid Pickers
Tacoma, Wash., July )6 .—The Puy­
allup and Sumner Fruit Growers’
Association mailed checks at its Puy­
allup office today for $37.500 to meet
the pav roll o f the growers to berry
pickers this week. This is the lar­
gest amount o f money ever distrib­
uted in one day by the association.
It has orders for 3,000,000 cans o f
berries this year, which is double the
record pack o f last year. More than
450,000 pounds o f berries worth more
than $18,000 are being received daily
at the Puyallup and Sumner receiv­
ing stations.
Fifteen thousand pickers are being
employed in harvesting the red rasp­
berry crop, which is now at its height.
