only $8,391, 541. In other words, while
the company moved 2,452,3:11 tons more

Mine Workers of America have been
established recently In the anthracite

Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rous that they will this year hold to their usual custom
of millins STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop

owing to the excessively dry weather many millers art
of tlie opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for millinp;. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling haa
