The men whq have grown beets
in the last twoyears are thoroughly
settled in the belief that the sugar
industry will enrich Nebraska far
beyond the dreams of its most en
thusiastic pioneers. It has been
demonstrated beyond questionthat
the beets will withstand all the ex
tremes of weather to which this
climate is subject and yield in the
worst seasons more money than the
ordinary crops in the best years.

The Nebraska weather-crop re
port, for the week ending Tuesday
last, says: The rainfall over the
eastern half of the state has been
copious except in very limited local
ities and in some places excessive.
Over the western half of the state
for the most part it has been light.
Corn generally nas made good pro
gress aud the early corn is matur
ing m the eastern oart of the state,
and a considerable portion of it is
bevond danger of injury by frost.
Owing to wet weather the late corn
has continued to grow and to im
prove in condition, but some of it is
very late and will require consider
able time yet to mature. The co
pious rains of the past two weeks
have improved the condition of
pastures and meadows. But the
wet weather has delayed haying
and threshing, and in some cases
damaged small grain in the shock.
Plowing and seeding continue gen
eral and the ground is in unusually
good condition to be worked in the
greater portion of the state.
Some valuable discoveries are
made by accident. Burglars entered
the office ot a chemical establish
ment in Elizabeth, N. J., the other
night and blew open the safe. Then
they got out of the building as soon
as their feet would carry them,
carrying off one of their number in
an insensible condition. Stored in
the safe were sundry bottles of
deadly stuff, the fumes of which are
est man in about a minute. The
explosion broke some of the bottles
and consequently the thieves hadn't
time to carry away some very rich
swag, which was plainly in sight.
On Sept. 24 to 26 the convention
of the Irishmen, who want to pro
mote Ireland's liberty by force, will
be held at Chicago. In New York
a secret meeting of a committee of
arrangements has been held, in
which letters were read from eighty
five nationalist clubs and trom men
favoring the move and promising
support. It is expected that the
convention will create great en
thusiasm. Delegates will come
even irom Australia, Argentine and
other South American republics.
A grand reception will be given the
delegates in Chicago.

Nobody seems to be willing to rise
to dispute the claim that Chicago
has become the greatest railroad
terminus on earth. The total
number of regular trains in and out
of the city every twenty-four hours
is 1,352, which is twenty-five more
than one ago. The companies
operating the roads number twenty

The Tobacco War.
The present war existing be
tween the big plug tobacco manu
facturers is proving very interest
ing for the consumers, they being
the only ones who are" profiting by
this war. The manufacturers are
unquestionably losing a great deal
of money, and, as far as we can see,
the whole cause of the war is on
account of a brand of plug tobacco
called "Battle Ax," which appears
to be as powerful a weapon as its
name implies. The manufacturers
of "Battle Ax" claim it to be the
largest piece of high-grade goods
ever sold for the- money. And the
success of the brand, the enormous
quantity which is being sold,
clearly demonstrates that the con
sumers have not been slow in de
tecting the fact that they have a
bargain. This has caused the.
demand for other heretofore popular
brands to be greatly diminished.
Hence the present great toba.ccl
