SEND HO MONET rf avo MONEY S v-w "" "" i am. 1 - -1 ? aywfAt Ut 1 Th operation of the Nttloail Beet Sujar company In Colorado baa re sulted In th9 completion of . three planta. one of which produces sugar from Iat season's crops. They are lo cated at Grand Junction. Rocky Ford, and Eugar City. When all are well under way thousands of hands will be employed and the money thus put Into clrcalat!oa will go Into the common ccfifrt of the people. The world's pro duction and consumption of sugar is cow about S.250.000 tons per annum, two-thirds of which is produced from fcets and the other fraction from su gar cane. It is estimated thst the normal consumptive ? demand Is - in creasing at the rate of 250,000 tons yearly. Statutes indicate that this country con mes more sugar than any other i Jon. or about one-third of the world's product. The condi tions of soli, elknate and other adv 1 tagea are quite as good In the Un d States, and especially In Colorado, far the development of the beet a Its sagar extraction as in any of the countries of Europe and Asia. It has been satisfactorily demonstrated that the cultivation of sugar beets in Colo rado may be a perfect success. A large plant has been built at Rocky Ford, Otero county, which cost, it li claim ed. 11,000.000 to build and equip. To supply it the farmers in the vicinity have contracted to grow 88.000 acres of btu a year for five years. From tests made, they claim their beets will yield 15 to 19 per cent sugar. It is proposed to have it ready for the crop the coming season. The factory, when running at its full capacity, consumes dally 1,000 tons of beets. This It con verts Into about 100 tons of refined sugar of the highest purity, with a beautiful crystalline appearance. This Is nearly 100 pounds per minute per raicute. The beets here retch perfect maturity, with a very high percentage.' Beets seldom go below 15 per cent; 12 per cent Is taken as the basis of buy ing beets at the factory. . The beets are grown by the farmers tinder contract with the factory and paid for according to the saccharine content determined: by chemical ;tests made of samples taken from the wa gons at the time of delivery. Besides that, the factory controls abo it 5.000 acres of laid. Most of this land will be fanned by tenants, but only a por tion of each leasehold is devoted to beets each year. Beet raisers sell their beets based upon the -eugar- content. The tests somewhat resemble the as saying of ore from the mines. Selling upon this basis encourages better fanning and the raising of better beets. It Is the only fair way, both to the raiser and the manufacturer. At Sugar City a farm of 12,000 acres has been opened for raising sugar beets, and a sugar factory has been built with a capacity of 500 tons every 24 hours. Oa the farm 1,000 men and wo men have been employed during the summer, and this season's crop will be converted Into sugar which will be sold in various big markets. The es tablishment of the sugar factory at this point built the town, which a few years ago consisted of a hut or two and thousands of prairie dogs, sum total. Nest year fully. 4,000 acres of beets will be In cultivation. The out put wil be increased a rapidly as pos sible, and every day the demand for workmen is now increasing. Denver Times." , . . tV' BRITAIN'S GROWTH. Vaat Daaatapoaaat of tba Koaplra Dor lac tlta Cast dry. - An English writer contributes some interesting facts relative to the great growth, of Great Britain and her col onies during the century now closing. During 1S00-1S00, he says the British empire baa Increased at the rate of to acres per second. In 1800 the Unit ed Kingdom had a colonial area equal to sixteen times Its own area; in 190U the United Kingdom has a colonial are equal to nicety-six times its own area. Roughly the increase has been from 2.900,000 to 12,000,000 square miles. If the Orange river colony and the Transvaal be taken Into account, the colonial area is now more than 97 times that of the home country. The French colonial area Is only eighteen tines the size of France, the German colonial area only five times the size cf Germany. In population, the Brit ish empire has risen from 115,000,001 In H03 to 290,000,000 in 1900. In the same interval the United Kingdom has risen from 15,000,000 to 41,000,000, Francs from 27.000.000 to 39,000.000, and the state now Germany from 21, C00.005 to 55,000.000. The populatioa of the British empire outside of the United Kingdom was. In 1800, about 100,000,000, of whom only 2,000.000 were white. Now it numbers 349.000, 000. of whom 12.000.000 are white; then one person In 50 was white, now one person in 28 Is a white. The Brit ish empire Js peopled at the rate of 33 persons to the square mile. '."tir. a m a..., i.i. u, AirjUIUD 20 TEARS 7 . :- . ..

Pearsoas, the octogenar ian benefactor of small colleges, has been signally honored by the legisla ture! of this state in the adoption of a complimentary set of ret A' ions. The legislators, recognizing that Dr. Pearsons wealth was accunalated in this state and that here his greatest benefactions have been made, took occasion, on Dr. Pearsons', personal visit to the legislature to record with a rising vote their appreciation of his splendid work in furthering the cause of education. f T " ' The keynote of Dr. Pearsons' ben efactions to 'the colleges is contained In the following saying by- himself: "Not a -penny to the rich or well-endowed institutions. I am helping the poor, struggling colleges because they are helping the poor boys and poor girls to obtain an education." If, as Dr. Pearsons and ? great many others believe, the best American types of the future are to come from the west and middle west this liberal giver, to the cause , of education is shrewd and far-seeing in confining his gifts td the small colleges scattered over the middle and western states. Dr. Pearsons sharply defines the work of the smaller colleges as distinct from the great, richly endowed institutions of learning. In the latter the ten dency is ever to concentrate, consoli date and absorb. In the small col leges the opposite tendency is para mount, and hence they must ever re main "close to. the , soil," whence the best types of young America are re cruited every year. The great universities are constant ly absorbing more wealth. They are also absorbing smaller and weaker institutions at an unparalleled pace. Dr. ; Pearsons believes, and a great many will agree with him, that this tendency is not representative of true democracy in learning. Nothing can ever supplant the beneficent work of the smaller colleges. It is In them that the moral fiber of students fresh from the country or mountain home is developed as It cannot be in the glamour of a great centralized uni versity. Probably the tendency of the future will be that the immensely endowed universities, with their magnificent equipment and facilities for special in vestigations, will devote themselves more and- more to postgraduate -work-The training of the raw material in the ordinary academic and college years will be left to the smaller Insti tutions near the homes of the stu- dents. 1 : This tendency is even necessary : if. we are to retain the principle of dem ocracy in the field of learning. The attempt to . consolidate and affiliate, scores and even hundreds of small colleges .into' one centralized institu- tion Is an artificial policy that may vlU timately fall of 1 its own weight. ; Long may the small college prosper, and 1 such prophets as Dr Pearsons multiply.

VY'-V' " . This ' law allows cities to put in public heating plants. In Nebraska at present cities may own and operate water plants, gas plants, heating plants and supply the public at cost. What depravity! What miserable, socialistic degeneration! How much better it is here in New York. The gas and heat are owned by private in dividuals and peddled out at the high est possible rate, in connection with official bribery. What a calamity it would be to shut o.ff the profits of half a dozen corpora tions and supply at cost gas, heat and electricity, as we now supply water. New York Journal. The Income Tax. ouqnd mu mouh o SuijCjhbjS st opinion is fast crystalizing In favor of an income tax, as one among the most equitable ways in which revenues for the support of the government can be secured. Its adaptation to the needs of local government, as well as to those of the general government, is also becoming generally recognized. Congressman Grosvenor has publicly announced that "there is no fairer or morevequitable tax than that which is levied upon profits and the gains of business." That a man with an income of ten thousand dollars a year should go - untaxed, while the man with an income of but one thousand should be taxed to the extent of twenty per cent of that income, is an arrangement that cannot merit the approval of .any hon est citizen; still that is one of the re sults of our present system of taxa tion which we meet with" every day. The democratic party, as a whole, has been advocating . the . basing a ' good portion of our tax JeYy;upon incomes, for some time back.. Now, with in fluential members of the ' republican party advocating the same , thing, we may reasonably hope to see it soon adopted in some form.

When Abraham Lincoln pleaded for a government by, of and for the peo ple, it is probable he had no thought of the direct ownership and operation of public utilities by the public; the term, "public utilities," had been lit tle quoted, if any. at that time, and was not so full of meaning as now. The leaven Is growing, however, and the increasing popularity of the ques tion of the municipal ownership of street railways, water, light, power and heating plantsa step in the di rection of government ownership. 4s tut a following out of the intent of Lincoln's "by, of and for the people."

An Important Deal Located in Omaha is one of the largest commercial houses in the west, known as the Western Mercantile Co., 1206-120S Douglas street. Thia concern started in business three years . ago and by -very hard work, adhering strictly to business principles, selling direct to consumers, they have built up one of the largest business houses in Omaha. A representative of our paper visited their ware house this week and was really surprised to find them doing so. much business. At the same time, after a little thought, it was no surprise for when you consider that they save their customers from 10 to 40 per cent on everything they handle it is .evident that it does not take long to show the people that it pays to do business with them.,' Their system of doing business Is the only system for cash buyers. In stead of asking the consumer to pay three or four profits they have only one small profit to add' to the manu facturers' cost. They have no agents, no canvassers, and do. business direct with the consumer by catalogue only. Their new catalogue is now ready for mailing. It cost about 35c" with the mailing, yet the catalogue is free and they only ask for the 10c to cover the postage. This book will save any av erage family 200 or 300 ' times that amount every year and it certainly pays every person to send for one. If the catalogue is not worth many times the 10c they. will refund the 10c Imme diately without any question so that a person cannot afford to delay send ing now. , Another thing, it pays every con sumer in the west to have a large mail order house established , in Omaha for the v.ery fact that they are located in Omaha will prevent the local dealer from asking too much for his goods. The catalogue of the Western Mercan tile Co. shows -you what the dealer pays for his goods; shows you, the real value cf the goods and Is, there fore, valuable as a buyer's guide..
