An enterprising citizen of . Red
Cloud took time by the forelock last
fall and prepared a large portion of
of his farm by thorough cultivation
for sugar beats. He gave employ
ment to a large number ot people

and will clean up $2,000 net profits
in a couple of months as a reward
of his pluck and foresight. , In
Pawnee county, where for the first
time in a half century corn is nearly
a total failure, many farmers put in
experimental patches of sugar
beets. The Journal has advices
that the crop is flourishing and that
the returns will be unexpectedly
large. These object lessons, where
the season has been unfavorable for
the ordinary Nebraska crops, are of
inestimable value to the farmers of
the state. They open a vista of
certainty and prosperity through a
wise diversification of products,
worth more than a library of theo
retical discussion. Seeing is be
