suggestions; That tho formers pro
cure u chemist, appointed by tho gov

bon of tho Stato university, who shall
check tho tests made by tho factory
chemist We will give such a man
overy facility for conducting his work
properly nnd fairly. Wo would suggest
thnt the farmers also appoint some one
to select tho samples from tho wagons
and cars, with our own sampler; that
these beets bo cut in half and bo given
to each chemist, so as to avoid any pos
slblo error by difference of sample, nnd
If tho farmers' chemist proves to bo ac
curate and just in his work wo will ac
cept his tests In case they differ from
our own. In view of tho doubts that
havo been expressed as to tho accuracy
with which wo test tho beets, wo think.
In justice to our company, tho beet
growers should adopt tills plan of con
firming our results, and we further
urgo tho necessity of speedy uctlon in
tho matter, as but little timo remains
for harvesting tho crop. Yours truly,

Lincoln dispatch; Dully reports are
received by tho secretary of stato con
cerning tho sugar industries at Grand
Island and Norfolk. Tho season com
menced October 1. Up to tho lSth inst.
tho receipt of sugar beets at the Grand
Island factory amounted to 4, 120 tons.
Tho nmonnt of granulated sugar man
ufactured to that dato amounts to
400,000 pounds. Thu Norfolk fautory
has received 5,017 tons of beots. It has
produced MO.OOO pounds of granulated
sugar, making a total of sugar inndo
by tho two factories of 700,000 pounds.
These two factories rccoivo on an
average, daily, J, 000 tons of beets, or
l.fiOO apiece. Tho sugar bounty
amounts to SI a ton, In reality, to the
producer, for it was with tho under
standing thnt the beet raiser wus to re
ceive $5 per ton for beets, Instead of
84, that tho bounty of llve-clghts of 1
cent u pound was voted by the last leg
islature. Thus tho two factories at
Grand Island nnd Norfolk lire dis
tributing among tho farmers who went
into the beet Industry about 81,000 a
day each. Tho manufacturing season
lasts about threo months. One-sixth
of this timo has now elapsed. Tho
samo average kept up would give an
output for tho scuson for tho two fac
tories of 4., "00,000 pounds of manufac
Chicory Crop in Valley County.
North Loup dispatch: Experimental
plats of chicory which were planted
here last season grow with remarkable
vigor during tho entire season, but it
was a great surprlso to all who had
been interested In watching thu growth
of tho plants to learn tho facts in re
gard to what an enormous yield they
were making. Ono plat, raised by
Attorney E. J. Ilabcock, was divided
into sections of rows one rod in length,
from which comparative calculations
could bu made, and after topping and
trimming as required by the fuctory at
O'Neill, tho roots weighed at the rate
of from oight to seventeen tons to tho
acre. As tho German Chicory company
of O'Neill this year pays H0.."0 per ton
for the roots, and the labor required in
their harvesting and tillage does not
greatly exceed that of the sugar beet
it will" be readily been that tho chicory
plant Is one of great promise for cen
SiiRurltoet I'actory OhrnilstH.
Farmers and managers of the flrana
Island and Norfolk beet sugar factories
havo joined in requesting Governor
llolcomb to appoint ono chemist for
each of tho factories. There has been
no complaint concerning tho chemical
analysis conducted by tho fuctorles on
which purchuso of beets aro based, but
hi order to protect both the buyer and
seller of beets and to satisfy all parties
concerned, tho joint request for a chem
ist, who shall servo in the capacity of
un umpire, has been made.
There is no mention of a chemical
analysis in tho sugar bounty bill passed
ly the last icglsiuturo over tne gov
ernor's veto. Thut act simply says no
bounty shall be paid on sugar made
from beets for which us much as S.I a
ton Bhnll not havo been paid. Tills
virtually fixes tho price of beots at S5 a
ton, but tho written contracts with
irrowers state that tho beets must con
tain 13. per cent of succharine matter,
80 per cent of which sliall be pure,
llcets that do not como up to this test
tiro probably not taken at all by the
factory, or aro bought at a reduced

Washington, Oct 28. R. E. lrc
ton, director of tho mint, iu discussing
his report on tho world's production
of gold und silver hi 18!) I, innkes tho
following statement: "I am satisfied
that the gold product of tho world
will not bo less tlmn $00,000,000 for
tho calendar year 180:, which will ho
un Increase of S'JO.OOO.OOo over 1804.
01 this Incronso tho United States Will
contribute not les than $7,r,00,00o.
Colorado will furnish from 3,500,000
to $1,000,000, California 82,00(1,000
nnd Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho and
Montana wilt inako handsome show
ings. In Colorado the principal in
crease will como from tho Cripple
Creek district This district altogether
avIU probably produce Sl",000,000 this
ycur. It required some timo to con
vince capitalists that this was n won
derfully rich district. Tho shipments
of rich ore uiado in tho last year have
removed all doubt about tho future- of
tho Cripple Creek country. Lcudvillo
will also show un increase this year In
thu output of gold. Sonio of the
mines iu this region aro very produc
tive. In tho Lcudvllle region thoro
tiro found goldt silver, copper, lend
and Iron. There Is a general revival
of gold mining throughout this region.
"California mines are sure to show
an increased output from this timo
forward. Tho establishment of tho
debris commission lu California has
given a great impulse to hydraulic
mining, which is exceedingly profit
able. Where thuro is placer mining,
particularly in MoutanaandIdaho,tho
p-oduct of gold will not bo so great as
it would have been had there been
heavy snows in tho mountains, Thcro
is a shortage of water In those states
which serves to handicap tho miners.
Tho returns from quartz mining thcro
nre very satisfactory. Some heavy
shipments of oro aro being made from
Helena, bvcrywiicro l went in tho
mining regions of tho West I saw evi
dences of great activity and prosperity.
"Not alone in the I'nlted States is
tlio output of gold increasing. South
Africa has gone ahead of Australia in
tho amount of its gold product, und
will produce this year a vast quantity
of tho precious metal. Australia prob
ably will contribute S2.o00.000 or
83,000,000 of tho increase. Kussia will
produce from 3,000,000 to $3,000,000,
more tlmn it did last year. Russia's
output last year fell off, but tho in
crease in Siberia this year will be
marked, judging from the information
I have received from our minister at
St. Petersburg. Mexico, which con
tributed $4,r00,nIO In gold last year,
will muko u fur better showing this
year. We gained last year for the
gold stock or the world about gi.OOO,
000 of the gold formerly hoarded in
India, and wo have every reason to
look for an increase tills year and for
a number of years to come."

Fayi-tte. .Mo., , Oct. 38. Sheriff
George E, Stanley of Curroll county,
who was here yesterday, said that al
most prohibitory rules had been
adopted against allowing the Taylors
to see visitors since their convic
tion. This course, ho explained, had
been rendered ncces-sary by the great
number of applicants who desire to
seo tho boys, some of whom nre inter
ested In their salvation, others to dis
cuss tho crime with them and many
simply from morbid curiosity. Dur
ing a recent religious gathering in
Cnrrollton, Mr. Stanley says he thinks
about 100 preachers asked permission
to see tho Taylors. Of course thoy had
to bo refused, for to let ouo in would
huvo necessitated the admission of all.

Ho was stricken with apoplexy Mon

and since then his death had beett mo

when tho end cnmo were Mrs. Van
Wyck, n daughter, Miss Happy, and his
wife's brother, Mr. Mark Hrodhcad.
Tho attack to which tho ex-senator
from Nebraska succumbed was a very

General Rrodhcad, and was ap

Spirits. On his return to tho hotel,
shortly after 13 o'clock, ho chatted with
his wife, and showed no signs of illness,
but five minutes nfter he had entered
tho dining room ho succumbed. It so
happened that u doctor was in tho ho
tel at tho timo and ho was promptly
tuminoncd. After a brief examination
he declared that Mr. Van Wyck had
been stricken with paralysis, and ad
vised that the family physician, Dr. W.
W Johnson, bo called. Later in tho
dny tho doctors made a careful exam
ination of tho patient, and found that
the senators left side was affected. He
hardly regained consciousness from
that time until death ensued.
