water has fallen in the Hat Creek basin
this week than fell during the entire
season of 1890. Whether that is a fact
or not is hard to ascertain, but in any
event uiey had a good rain, and as a re
sult the farmers are all happy. The
drouth of last year made overy one fear
lest it should te related but the late
rains will do much to dispel -all fears.
for a partial crop will be raised, even if
no more rains fall, but the indications
are that there w ill be plenty of mois
ture during the season.
It has been quite cool for some days
so that the water that has fallen has had
a good opportunity to soak into the
ground. The cool weather is good for
the small grain and everything indicates
that excellent crops will reward the
farmers this year and bring prosperity
to the country.

The result of the experiments in the
culture of sugar beets is being watched
with a good deal of interest by people
not only in this state, but by' people in
general. Those who are in position to
judge claim that Nebraska has advan
tages possessed by no other state. It is
claimed by some that the prices paid at
(irand Island were not enough to make
beet growing remunerative. The Ox
nard company paid throe dollars per ton
for beets which yielded 12 per cent of
sugar, and 23 ceiits per ton additional
for each 1 ier cent of sugar above 12.
There were twelve samples of beets sent
from Harrison for testing. The average
yield was over 17.8 per cent of sugar and
it will be seen that at the price paid at
Grand Island the farmers would have
received if 1.2) per ton for their beets.
Scientists state that the sugar contained
n sugar beets is drawn from the air by
the leaves during sunny days and is ab
sorbed by the roots during the nights.
That being true is another argument
that this locality is finely adapted to
beet culture for there are more bright,
sun shiny days here than in any place
we know of. The number of farmers
who are experimenting with beets this
year will demonstrate what can be done
n producing beets. The beet sugar in
dustry was built up in Germany by gov
ernment bounty and now the business is
so well established that the bounty is
lieing removed. In the French beet
growing district the average yield is
twenty tons per acre, and in some in
stances the yield is as high as thirty
tons. Taking the lowest yield in tons
and tle average yield of sugar as shown
by the tests of beets from here last year
t would give the beet grower $8o per
acre, wrnie laKing me ingnesi, yieiu in
tons and the highest yield of the tests
m:ide last year and the grower would
realize $172. 50 jier acre. Will someone
tell us what crop can be raised that will
rive anv where near so large returns as
that? Tho planting, cultivating and
harvestinir come at seasons when other
crops best adapted to this part of the
country do not demand the attention of
the farmers. Such points are well
worth considering.

nations in 1H90, less the sinking fund, was
425,080, 076,000, an increase over 1880 of

half the nmount "of the debt in 1880.
