The folks living; around Brooks ap
preciate what a car shortage means. Teii
iln.vs ago a com mission house asked for
four cars at Brooks and found' that or
ders for 2't cars hud already been
placed. Since the commission house
placed its order 10 davs auu. onlv one
car hies been spotted ut Brooks and the
estimate now is that at that one station
alouo it would require 73 curs to move
the turm produce and stock awaiting
sinpmeirt. And while there are no curs
to be had, the river is so low that the
boats can only carry 30 tons nt a time
while ordinarily a load of 200 tons could
be taken. So there vou have the situa
tion at Brooks high prices for pota
to's, onions and all other farm products
uud no means of delivering them.

pnpers prints tho following from a sub
scriber, who has just completed tonf
of several western states.
"Mr. Hughes injured his own eantli-
ducy on his first trip to the Pacifie
coast. One hears this everywhere, and
republicans declare it as openly a
democrats. Tho republicans from Kan
sas, who traveled on the train with me.
declared they would voto for Wilsoa
or stay away from the polls, after hay-
inu hcurd Hughes; ami they assertea
that Kansas was strong for Wilson 'a
kind of peace ami prosperity.
"1 lett yew lorn couvinceu tna
Hughes would be our next prosidont.
Now I am in doubt. My reasons mar
not seem very important,, but no- one
can go into the middle west just now
and not feel that everywhere the flow
of tho tide is toward Wilson."
Commenting on the letter, the New.
York Evening Post, which until a tew
days ago was a strong Hughes support
er, toduy says:
"Prosperity insuring to the benefit
of a democratic administration is na
turally disgusting to republicans, bat
it is doing them a lot of good. The
republican who writes so pessimistic
ally about the outlook for Hughes tr
the Tribune, returns with a feeliiif
very much like lothing for tho pros
perity which has 'engulfed' the middle
westerners. If this process goes on,
the party soon will tio singing the
pruises of poverty, and saying that
there is nothing like an empty stoiw.
ach to stimulate true patriotism."
