Tho railroad reduction freight

grain will help Klamath county on
ly on tbe grain portion, say Mar
tin Brothers, who handle tbo bulk
ot tbe Klamath county grain crop.
The hay reduction rato Is but a
small benefit, owing to the high
rate of transportation to elthor the
Portland or the San Francisco mar
la the grain reduction, which
goes into effect on November 20,
should the export market remain tbo
same as it .is today, the farmer
who sold after that date would be
gainer iiy 8.4 cents on the" hundred;
the shipping Tate from Klamath
Falls -to Ban Francisco being 40
cents per hundred. This amount
could be .paid to tbe seller by the
huyer and asany .fanners in tbo
county who have largo crops would
have a nice -windfall by selling atr
