HUTCHINSON, KANSAS, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 192? NO. 12 j. An Era Of Prosperity Is Ahead For Everyone Den Moines, la., Nov. 24.—The United SlatOB Is just entering n new era of prosperity, In the Judgment of E. T. Meredith, editor of Successful Farming, and former secretary of agriculture. "The readjustment of the farmer's business Is nearly completed." said Mr. Morodlth. "In four years the total farm income has increased 1 at the rale of one and one-half billion dollars each year, from twelve Ullllnn In 11121 to sixteen billion in 192H, and to seventeen and ono-helf billion In 1924. "This Increase in spending money Is distributed In all farm sections, with tho larger part of the increase going to farmers In the northern states, extending from Ohio vo Nebraska, Better for Farmer. "There being approximately five hundred million acres of farmed In ml in the United States, this Increased Income for 11124 gives the farmers an additional three dollars an acre uvc-r 1023, "There is no question in my mind that so far as fundamental condl- Hoiis are concerned, business during the next 12 months will show an Increased activity. "Agriculture being fundamental, hen the farmer spends a dollar ill town, he starts a chain of purchases lu the city which determines Hie volume of city holiness. "If the new wealth taken from the soil In a given season gins to farmers a larger purchasing power than tho year previous, It is not the aggregate amount, of these purchases on the farmer's part that makes the volume of bimlnoss-. but It Is the additional series of trades which it causes In the city. Will Affect All Lines. "The turiM'T has his dollar but once, but the city man passes It through five, BIX or seven hands, going from the retnll purchaser to the retailer, from tho retailer to the wholesaler, wholesaler lo Ihe niiinufacturer, manufacturer to the laborer, and laborer back to the TO USE SURPLUS FOR A BONUS TO SPANISH VETS Bill Asking Appropriation of World War Bonus. NEED A MILLION K. T. S1KKF.U1TH reiniler. It is only when some possessor of the dollar spends it for food that the chain is broken. More Purchasing Power. "For this reason, the total purchasing power of farmers Is a factor of the most vital Importance to business and labor; they are both to be congratulated that for the year 1024 the farmer* of America will have considerably more purchasing power, in other words, more means to start these chains of purchases than they have had in any recent year. "Reports of sales from distributors of merchandise In farm sections show that farmers have already Htarted the ball rolling. This new buying energy will naturally retard the tendency to depression In large mercantile centers. ".My prediction is for increased business in all lines for at least the first six months of 1825, and. I base it wholly upon the Increased purchasing power of the farmer."
