Reduced Prices on
And the Cars Came
Railroads Make Good on Promise
to Move All Business Offered
A low freight rate and no cars in which to ship is as un
satisfactory as a low price for bread and no bread. ,
Heretofore, fall harvest has brought a widespread car
shortage. Last year it was 140,000 cars. This year there
is generally a surplus of box cars in the West and North
west, notwithstanding the roads are handling the greatest
volume of business in their history.
There's a Reason!
For 1923, all the railroads of the United States joined in
a co-operative effort and with a defined program to improve
traffic conditions and to establish new standards of service,
even excelling pre-war records. In fulfilling this program,
134,636 new freight cars and 2,963 new locomotives were
put in service between January and October, 1923, a larger
number than in any similar period within the past ten years.
Remarkable progress has been made in reducing the num
ber of locomotives and cars awaiting repairs, 83.3 per cent
of the locomotives and 93.3 per cent of the cars being in
serviceable condition in October.
More railroad coal bus been placed in stock pile storage
and more commercial coal dumped at Lake Erie ports than
in any previous year, thus making equipment available for
other necessary traffic during peak periods.
From an average movoment of 22 mllea per car per day, (Includ
ing idle time) In 1021, the railroads made 29.2 miles in September,
In the 42 weeks from January 1 to October 20, 1923, the rail
roads loaded and moved 40,646,820 cars, which was an Incrcnse of
1H over 1022 and 10 over the record year of 1920.
The roada aro spending this year 700 million dollars for new
equipment and 400 million dollars for other improvements. Years
ago James J. Hill, the great railroad builder of tho Northwest,
Bind the roads must spend one billion dollars every year for addi
tions and betterments to keop abreast of the country's growing
truffle, but this is the first year In twelve that the railroads have
found It possible to obtain that amount. Such expenditures have
a vitnl bearing on national prosperity, contributing to tho cxpan
son of industry and employment of labor, increasing the demand
for products of mine, forost and fnrm.
This $1,100,000,000 being spent In 1023 ia almost entirely new
money, and not taken from earnings. The expenditure is based on
tho conviction that the American pepple will encourage compen
satory ratoa and discourage attempts to embarrasB the railroads
In their efforts to provide adequate service. It is not predicated
on present earnings for even in this rccord-broaking year, It ia
unlikely that the roads will earn the 6.76 on their valuation per
mitted by the Interstate Commerce Commission under the Trans
portation Act, but which If they do not enrn they do not get.
Antl-rnilrond laws produce no freight cars.
Constructive suggestions are always welcome.

who doesn't want a
Bang-up Knife for Christmas
THERE'S something about a fine, sturdy
pocket knife that reaches right down into
the heart of man and boy alike.
But it has to be a reed knife make no
mistake about that I
Here are shown a dozen Remington

Every one is a pracfica cutting tool. The
blades are sharp and will cut. The handles
hold on. The springs keep their strength.
Your dealer can show you these Reming
ton Knives and many others in all combina
tions of blades and handles in a wide range
of prices 50 to $10.
Probably when you see them youll decide
to give him more than one.
One for his pocket or watch-chain and an
other perhaps for working around the car. Or
a Remington Camper's Knife if he loves camp
ing, hiking, or fishing.
Anyhow, before you decide look at off the dif
ferent kinds of Remington Pocket Knives at
