FACTS ABOUT SUGAR BEETS.
The following letter, from our friend
John E. Evans, contains some interest
ing facts relative to sugar beets, and we
therefore give it space in our columns:
Lincoln, May 6th, 1893.
On the train from Grand
Island to Lincoln with H. Huxsmann,
boss farmer for the Oxnards sugar plant
at Grand Island, a gentleman of years
of experience in Germany, as well as Ne
braska, I got the following:
He tells me that in 1891 he contracted
for beets as follows: Sutton, Go acres;
Alexandiia, 55 acres; North Bend, 35
acres. In 1895 he has contracted as fol
lows: Sutton, 550 acres; Alexandria,
650 acres; North Bend, 485 acres; total
; 1685; in other places this year 2115, mak
ing a total contract this year of 3800
acres. Has refused over 600 acres, hav
ing all they can handle.
Beets should be planted in rows 18
inches apart. Twenty pounds of seed
to the acre should be planted. Seed will
cost 20 cents a pound for parties not
contracting with them. He suggests
that deep planting and plenty of manure
was all that was required to insure a
high percentage of sugar. He also said
that German beet sugar growers were
better posted on what Nebraska is doing
in this line than we were at home, and
that there is nothing they fear so much
as our development in um nne. ne
thinks a farmer ought not to plant more j
than five acres the first year, and tbati
11 1 i 1 I J T 1 n- I
me oeeu crop suuuiu uo ruiuieu auu uuu
planted on the same ground more than
two years in succession. By deep plow
ing and plenty of manure the ground is
in splendid shape for any other crop.
Plant the beets as near the house as
possible, as an hour in the evening or
morning can be put in weeding and
thinning often when if far from the
house it would not be done. The crop
yields cash fully thirty dollars an acre
above expenses and is marketed before
corn can be realized upon. That tho
farmers in localities where the beets
have been raised are extending this crop
is evidence that it pays them.
As this gentleman is authority, and
has had more beets offered him than he
can handle, his statements can be taken
as truthful. Mr. Huxsmann remarked
that the people in this country, usually
quick to see a good thing, seem slow to
take hold of this branch of farming. He
says it is not necestary to bring Ger
many here to see us, but that it would
be a good thing for us to see Germany.
The talk with him was entertaining and
instructive to me. He says if the
Platte valley and Nebraska in general
would do what she ought there would
be a refinery centrally located in less
than five yers. If Mr. Huxsmann
could get a contract he would start a
beet seed farm and that he could grow
the seed better here than in Germany
he has no doubt.

THE WOMAN'S BELIEF C&RPS.
Lincoln, Neb., April 20 . To the Edi
tor of the State Journal. I see by the
last issue of the Campfire that a circle of
the Ladies of the G. A.JK. was organized
at North Platte and in the article describ
ing the meeting is this statement, to
which I take exceptions, "Tb.is order is
a part of the G. A. R.
Now, the only official part of the Grand
Army of the Republic and auxiliary
thereto is the Woman's Relief Corps,
organized at Denver, Colo., in 1883; and
all female relatives of the soldiers, sail
ors and marines of the late war and all
loyal women are eligible to membership
therein and their help and aid is needed
in caring for our indigent comrades who
get no pension or a mere pittance from
the government who promised to care
for him aud his if he would shoulder bis
rifle and stand between his. country and
its foes. All our relatives and sympa
thizers should rally under the standard
of our only auxiliary, the Woman's Re
lief corps, whose doors swing outward
ever, and always to welcome the mothers,
wives, sisters, daughters, sweethearts
and any true, loyal women, all of whom
can freely work under the rules and
regulations of this order that was born

when treason first raised its fraticidal
hand to destroy this nation, then woman
took up the duty and privilege of shar
ing the labors of the hour. At homo
they cared for the business and tho
farm, reared the children, formed socie
ties to furnish supplies for the hospitals,
and delicacies for the sick and wounded;
they worked in the "Christian commis
sion," "sanitary commission and as army
nurses went to the front; in the hospital
and on the battlefield they were the
ministering angels to the wounded, sick
When the war closed and the mighty
host of citizen soldiery returned to the
vocations of peace, many were wholly
unfitted to resume the wanted occupa
tions of former years. Crippled, wound
ed, disabled by disease, without means
to provide for their families, they found
woman still faithful to their interests,
who nobly worked for years till the
eighteenth annual national encampment
of the G. A. R. "Resolved that we cor
dially hail the organization of the Na
tional Woman's Relief corps aud extend
our greetings to them. We return our
warmest thanks to the loyal women of
the land for their earnest support and
encouragement, and bid them God speed
in their patriotic work." The status of
this organization was thus at once estab
lished. Side by side with the comrades works
the Woman's Relief corps; visiting the
sick, caring for the widow and orphan,'
inculcating lessons of patriotism in tho
hearts and minds of the young, assisting
in Memorial day exercises, and in all
things striving to prove worthy of the
Comrades, our time is growing short
and our wives are growing old by our
hearthstones. The "Loyal Ladies,"
"Ladies of the G.A.R,'!"Ladies League,"
and Daughters of Veterans should all
unite with our auxiliary and save the
expense of halls, fuel, ligh, stationery,
state and national conventions, (nearly
all of which comes from the pockets of
husbands and fathers) and devote their
sole energies to our veteran comrades
who will soon be no more and those con
dition demands their fostering care on
the downward slope to the lowly mound
soon to be their last resting place
I know that Past Department Com
mander Church Howe by his unadvised
and hasty action at the encampment at
Hastings may have led these worthy
ladies to believe that they were made a
part of tho G. A. R. but no department
officer can do anything of this sort, only
our national organization can legislate
on a question of this kind, and any
recognition given at Hastings does not
carry any weight beyond tho personal
preferences of Comrade Howe as an in
dividual member of tho G. A. R. Yours
