The saving on one 200-carload cargo alone is 542,000. This enables the Upper Michigan producer to grow and ship potatoes to market for no more than it costs a Maine grower in freight charges alone. lu view of advantageous water rates, lailroads have made substantial reductious in freight rates. The Milwaukee Road has built two large warehouses for Northwest Potato Farms at Ontonagou, and another at Bensenville. 111., a Chicago suburb. The latter has track space for ten acres at one time, and all necessary equipment for washing, drying, grading and preparing potatoes for mar : ket at the rate of 1 carload per hour. Another graph shows that Maine produces 50,000 carloads ot potatoes annually on an area smaller than Ontonagon county. The Northwest concern plants up to 16 acres of seed per hour with an automatic planter. Potato farming used to be a back breaking, sun up to sundown task, but mechanized farming has changed all that. All a farmer has to do now is to drive his tractor and keep bis machinery in good working order. This has a tendency to attract the younger generation back to the farm. A tractor operated by one man on the Northwest farms plows as many acres as 12 men and 12 teams of horses, and at a fraction of the cost. Spraying is done mechanically at the rate of 30 to 40 acres a day, and far better than formerly by hand. As fast as new land Is needed, it is swiftly and efficiently cleared by Diesel-powered tractors at a cost of $10 to $20 per acre ready for farming. Ten or 20 years ago it cost $75 tof §100 per acre to clear farm land with j horses and dynamite. Land clearing! and modern potato growing and marketing methods have brought many visitors to Ontonagon this year, some of whom plan to embark in the industry.

US-41 To Be Fully Paved Marquette, Mich.--Skaug Bros, of Escanaba are operating a new sawmill at Birch, northwest of here on the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railway, with, a capacity of four million feet annually. Their tract on the Big Bay branch of the line is expected to keep the mill busy for about sis years. Thirty-five men are employed. Practically every sawmill in Michi gan's Upper Peninsula is husy, including many portable mills. Timber- men are of the opinion that wider adoption of selective cutting and the 1 natural renewal of the Peninsula's j extensive timber stands will keep many mills · operating indefinitely if marke'. conditions permit. . For the benefit of those whose eyes are below par, the eye experts point out that professional men -the' ophthalmologists, optometrists and ophthalmic dispensers -- are specifically trained to provide eye comfort and visual efficiency. If given the opportunity, they can accomplish marvels in eye conservation and comfort. Many people fail to realize or appreciate the long training, skill, knowledge and infinite care required of professional men to diagnose and correct. defective vision. Most of these people, through no fault of their own, interpret eye comfort and visual efficiency in terms of spectacles and ignore the professional skill which restores good vision. This confused thinking -- a splendid example of putting the cart before the horse -- dates back to the Nineties -when modern concepts of eye care were unknown and professional knowledge was in Its infancy. Then, if yon bad defective eyesight. Ton , probably, bought spectacles froth * peddler, selecting them on' a" trial ixml error basis. But the passing ot time, advancement in professional knowledge, *ud the development of new diagnostic and corrective methods have First step in an eye examination. Aided tiy the ophthalmoscope, the doctor studies the eye's.retina for symptoms of eye, brain, blood and systemic diseases. radically changed those earlier practices. Glasses are no longer a commodity for sale but are therapeutic devices prescribed to achieve a physiological objective -- better vis- Ion. They are merely the end result of precise professional knowledge in action. Nowadays, six important professional services contribute to better vision. These services include examining the eyes, refracting (determining whether the eyes bend light rays properly), prescribing (writing down the findings of the refraction), interpreting (translating: the prescription Into lenses), fitting and servicing ot the glasses, assuming that glasses are needed, as determined by the examination and refraction. Through these truly professional services people can and do attain better vision. It is for these services they pay a fee in order to obtain eye comfort and visual efficiency, the lack of which may profoundly affect health, efficiency and happiness. Are your eyes below par?
