There is surely a connection be- tween the corn-burning farmers ot Nebraska and the idle-half-the-time miners of other states, The miner has working time for sale. He has put his price so high that he can sell only half of it, because the Nebraska farmer and hosts of others cannot af- ford to pay his price. If he were to reduce his price he would sell so much more of his time that his earn- ings would be increased. The price ot coal, in which his wages are the larg- est item, would be lower, and the farmer and everybody else would buy more. a By increasing his earnings through sale of more time, the miner would be enabled to buy more of the farm- er's product, making the latter more prosperous and better able to buy coal.
