The Oxnard Beet Sugar company will
duplicate the above premiums, in cash,
-without discount. All other conditions
and requirements are the same as for
the regular premiums offered by the
board. Thus, the actual net cash pre
miums to winners will be:

Still further, in addition, the Oxnard
Beet Sugar company will pay out of the
.state bounty, over and above the prices
paid for sugar beets at its factories in
the state of Nebraska, fifty cents per
ton bounty on all beets it purchases and
consumes, raised in the state in the
year 1891. Also 20 per cent of the
weight of beets purchased and con
eumed, in the shape of pulp, will be re
turned free to each party furnishing
"fcarlaa; a f Hamate."
My friend, the agent of a Buffalo
wall paper bouse, wan "lau&g on"
with a headache in the waiting room
of the bif depot In Philadelphia, when
slick looking stranger about 16 yean
of age tat down betide us and asked:
"Is the ache mostly over your eyes
r is the baek of your headr'
"Iff all over my head, " groaned the
"Exactly. Proceeds from a nervous
state of the system. Ah! your pulse is
way up. Let me see your tongue. I
thought so; a cold current of air bas
chilled the nerves along the spine, and
smashing headache is the result"
"Are you a physician," I asked.
"Well, no, not in the ordinary sense.
I am called a professor. Some call
me a fakir, even. I effect cures by
what is called laying on of bands. You
are skeptical, of course; but I'll
agree to cure your friend here in ten
minutes or forfeit $50."
"For heaven's sake go ahead!"
groaned Tom. "If you can cure me
in an hour I'll give you ten dollars!"
We went down into the baggage de
partment, where the performance
wouldn't attract so much attention,
and the fellow began passing his hands
over Tom's head and face, and also
rubbing his hands. lie hadn't worked
a minute before Tom said he felt better,
and in ten the headache was entirely
"Now, don't offer to pay me or I
shall be offended," he said, as he
stopped work, "and you'd better sit
quiet right where you are for about
ten minutes. Close your eyes, thus,
and lean back a little more so."
lie bowed himself out in a graceful
way, and had been gone fifteen
minutes when Tom carefully arose,
opened his eyes, and suddenly called
"Robbed, by thunder!"
The fakir got 90 in cash, a rail,
road ticket to Washington, and a
diamond pin worth $125, and the
polioe haven't nabbed him to this day.
A Religious and Bunlneaa Combine,
A poor country congregation found
itself badly in want of hymn books.
The clergyman applied to a London
firm and asked to be supplied at th?
lowest church rates. The firm replied
that on condition the hymn books con
tained certain advertisements the con
gregation should have them for noth
ing. Necessity knows no law and the
minister sorrowfully complied, think,
ing to himself that when the advertise
ments came they could be removed
from the leaves, The hymn books nr.
rived, and joy of joys they contained
DO interleaved advertiements, Christ
mas services were hud the following
Sunday, and the good ptiraon joyously
gave out an appropriate hymn and the
congregation sung the first verse with
fervor. When they reached the lust
line they found that this was what they
bad been singing:
