Railroad revenues bulk so larjre in the aggregate, be-
cause of the tremendous volume of service performed,
that few people realize how cheaply freightis carried!
Ainrrican railroad rate# are nut only the lowest in tht
world, but they are relatiivly lower than rater charged
for any terrier of like value now enjoyed by society.
Th* Kmty a average revenue for hauling on at>eraae carload of Z6
tons one mile is approximately t centt. For hauling the
esrfooa wheat - which weighs nearly 38 tons-the Katy's rev-

Because the United States has developed the greatest system of railroads that ex-
ists anywhere on the face of the earth, it has become the world's leading industrial
nation. And, railroad sernce is not only cheaper in America than in any other
country, but it is the best. Never before has it been as prompt and dependable as
during the last two years. Adequate railroad service, witn freedom from car
shortage and congestion, is a business asset to the farmer, the merchant, the
banker and the manufacturer. The Katy—the pioneer line in its distinctive terri-
tory,and the onlu railroad serving a!l the mors important centers in Oklahoma
ana Texas from both Kansas City and St. Louis—solicits your supi
taintng conditions that will permit the continued improvement ana
of Katy service to and from the Southwest.
