Reduced Prices on
If automobile oils were priced solely on qual
try and efficiency, no oil should cost you more
than good, high quality Zerolene. But quality
and efficiency do not determine the price of
oils sold here. The difference in the price of
Zerolene and other oils usually goes into long'
haul transportation and high merchandising
costs, which we do not have to pay to make Zerolene
available. All that you spend for Zerolene goes
to buy high quality only.
Therefore we say "Insist on Zerolene even if
it does cost less." Ask for it by name Zerolene.

Union Pacific System taxes practically trebled between
1912 and 1922, or from $4,668,875 to $13,251,552.
Our 1922 taxes amounted to $36,306 a day. This would
have paid for 17 all-steel box cars every day or a modern
freight or passenger locomotive every other day.
Union Pacific System tax payments since 1900 have been
tFiscal year ending June 30. 'Calendar year ending Dee. 31.
Union Pacific System taxes for 1922 consumed 6.87 cents
out of every dollar of gross earnings and 27.03 cents out of
every dollar of net earnings.
Total taxes paid by all railroads of the United States in
1922 were $304,885,158, which was almost as much as the
cost of digging the Panama Canal. Taxes exceeded cash
dividends paid by the railroads in each year since 1917, or
the entire expense of running the United States Govern
ment in 1916. They amounted to 5.4 per cent of the entire
Railroads are the largest tax payers in many states. In
some counties railroad taxes equal one-half the total.
Some of the tax money provided by the railroads is used
to build and maintain highways on which trackless competi
tors operate. Some of these highway transportation routes
serve as feeders for the railroads, but in most cases they
take tonnage from the rail lines, and the taxes levied on
the railroads and their trackless competitors are often un
Senator Borah, speaking in Congress last December, said :
"It will be very difficult to educe freight rates if we continue in
this country to increase taxes upon the railroads as we have for
the last four years These public utilities must collect this
money from but one source, and that is from those who ship."
Railroads, like other businesses, must pay taxes. They
are willing to pay their, but they ask that the tax burden be
equitably distributed, and that the public appreciate that
taxation is an element of increasing importance in railway
The price of transportation is bound to keep pace with
the cost of transporation. We are bending every effort to re
duce the cost.
Constructive suggestions are always welcome.

Deal In Dollars
JT'S GOOD business when you deal in dollars.
You acquire a stock in trade which never
goes below par and is always good in any
market. There is scarcely any reasonable
desire that the average person cannot gratify when
they deal in dollars which is another way of saying
The rapidly growing habit of thrift among the Ameri
can people and a keen appreciation of the comforts and
security that comes from money in the bank, makes
it necessary that you do likewise else lose out in enjoy
ment of a full nad peaceful old age.
Remember a pass book at a bank is the only dream
book in which dreams come true.
To get ahead, one must have a definite plan about it.
When opportunity knocks have your First National
