A Sueceasful Fair.
The Turn Verien closed its first an
nual fair ut their hall on Washing
ton avenue last evening. The fair
opened Friday evening. The isi
tors were entertained by an enter
tainment by the active turners as
sisted by the class composed of
younger and more inexperienced
members. The exercises inter
sperced with excellent music
rendered by Prof. Heck and Miss
Clara Herold. The exercises for
the evening closed with a dance
continuniug until 12 o'clock,
Saturday evening those so in
clined participated in a dance.
Probably the largest attendance
and the most interesting session
was had last evening. The audi
ence was first entertained by the
presentation of a drama, partici
pated in by members of the vercin.
At the conclusion of the dramatic
entertaiument, the prize drawings,
previously provided for, were con
ducted. There were seventy-one
prizes each to be drawn by the
holder of an admission ticket whose
number corresponded with the
numberby which the prize was des

ranged from $15 down, among
which was a line rocking chair do
nated by Henry Boeck drawn by
Philip Thierof; also one donated by
J. I. Unruh drawn by Joe Wurl.
Following the drawing the exer
cises concluded with a voting upon
the question as to who was the
most popular young lady. The
candidates were Anna Gtithmau

was spirited, resulting in a tie vote,

A Peculiar Case.
The controversy between L. G.
Todd and the Missouri Pacific is
assuming a peculiar aspect, with
the probability that it will not be
settled this term of court. Upon
the announcement of the decision
last Wednesday the attorneys for
the defendant expressed dissatis
faction with the verdict and moved
for a new trial, which was promptly
overruled by Judge Hall. The
attorneys for the defendant then
filed exceptions'to his instructions
and gave notice that the case
would be carried to a higher court.
Mr. Wooley, in behalf of the plaint
iff, stated that he did not believe
Mr. Todd would object to having
the case tried again. The court ad
journed' and upon re-convening
Saturday Mr. Wooley filed his tx
ceptions, which proved to be
voluminous in the extreme, indi
eating that it is the plaintiff that is
experiencing the greater dis
satisfaction with the verdict,
It is indeed remarkable that each of
ths parties in the suit should be dis
satisfied with the verdict, but this
case appears to be an exception to
the general rule.
CAK'KiE VAsa, was bom in Platts
motith November 24, 1S72, died in
Denver December 27 IS'.ll, Age 19
years, 1 month ana.i days.
A telegram was received in this
city yesterday from Denver convey
ing the sad intelligence that Carrie
Vass had peacefully passed away.
The deceased has been afflicted
with consumption for several
months, and her parents concluded
to take her to Denver, cherishing
the hope that the change of cli
mate would tend to recuperate her
failing strength. It was not thought
that the end was so near but the past
few days she failed so rapidly that
nil human ni l loving hands could
render availed nothing.
The deceased was one of the most
highly respected and esteemed
young ladies in tbocommunity and
her many friends will sincerely de
plore her demise. She finished the
course of study in the city schools
graduating with the class of '89.
Indications at that time pointed to
a long life of usefulness, but ere the
time came for garnering the fruits
the lingering yet fatal disease had
obtained a firm hold.

The follovAing from the Nebraska
City Press tells of a narrow escape
from death Dr. Watson, experienced
"The doctor, iu company with his
colored driver, was making his
usual rounds. The colored man
was driving. They were drivintr
along Fourteenth street, when all of
a sudden one of the horses took it
into his head to get gay, and beiran
kicking. Of course this frightened
the other horse and they started to
run away, one of the animals hav
ing by this time managed to place
himself asttide the buggy pole.
The driver held on to the reins and
kept the horses from running. Dr,
Watson concluded to jump out of
the buggy aud get at their head.
In jumping out, however, he was
struck by the buggy top and
thrown forward on to the double
tree iu such a manner that he was
unable to extricate himself. The
horses continued their foolishness,
regardlees of the doctor's predica
ment, and finally succeeded is dis
lodging him. He fell uuder the

over his body. The horses were

Lodged in Jail.
Two Hard looking individuals
were brought from Weeping Water
this morning and lodged in the
county jail on n charge of highway
robbery. It appears that last eve
ning the accused attacked a hard
working, inoffensive Swede, an em
ployee of the rock quarries near
Weeping Water, striking him with
a car pin, rendering him insensible.
The bandits secured but a few dol
lars. The preliminary examination was
held at Weeping Water, at which
positive evidence as to the guilt of
the accused was introduced. They
were bound over to the next term of
the district court.

History of the Sugar Beet
From the consular reports we
learn that to the son of a German
belongs the credit of the discovery
of sugar iu the beet. Not only its
discovery, but the working out of
the problem of the profitable ex
traction of the sweet salt as the
early chemist called it, is justly
claimed by the sturdy Genua us.
It was in the year 1747 that the
beet, ns a rival to the sugar cane,
made its debut. In that year Dr.
Andreas Sigismund Marggraf.
professor of chemistry and mem
ber of the Berlin academy of
science, reported to the Berlin acad
emy the process by which he had
been enable to find sugar in the
beet, exactly like that extracted
from, the sugar cane. But Marg
graf did not follow up his dis
covery. This was left to his pupil,
Franz Carl Achard. In 1709 Achard
addressed a petition to King Fred
erick William III, a treatise on the
preparation of sugar from the beet
root, and prayed that as he had
spent fifteen years, with great dili
gence and cost to himself, in per
fecting his process, that he be
granted the exclusive right for ten
years to produce beet uugar, and
that sufficient land be placed at
After searching examinations the
king granted a loan of $35,700, with
which Achard atarted in business.
In March, 1802, the firt factory
began operations. Other factories
started in Russia, in France aud in
Prussia. But the Napolean wars
swept over the country and kept
down the sugar development.
In the winter of 1809-10 Achard's
factory was burned and he was left
heavily in debt. He succeeded,
however, in getting a release from
the king of the first loan of $33,700,
and secured a new loan of $14,280.
With this second loan he started a
school over the ashes of his first
factory, for practical instruction in
the beet-root sugar industry. This
school succeeded poorly, and
Achard died in 121 with his 1 her
ishc'l project Mill uti)rospenuis.
Napoleon encouraged theorection
of In i l sugar fieloiies in Fiance,
but with his downfall they fell.
One only, .-iirong all the faeforie
of Franco, succeeded iu standing
while the others went down around
it. Cfespcl Delias, ihe owner of
this one factory, succeeded, and
till about IMS he was the authority
on all matters pertaining to the
beet sugar industry.
In 1S37 France imposed a tax on
beet root sugar. At that time there
were SSo factories in France and 150
in Germany. Four years l iter Ger
many imposed 1 tax on beets them
selves, which system has worked
Since 1840 the production of raw
sugar in Germany has doubled with
every decade. At that time the tax
was six millsperhundred pouudsof
beets, nnd there was produced over
24,000,009 pounds of sugar. In 1880
the number o factories was 331, pro
ducing 1,500,01)0,(100 pounds of sugar
and the tax was increased to 1
cents per hundred pounds of beets.
Now sugar is one of Germany's
great agricultural products. Fix.
