Fremont dispatch: Messrs. J. W.
Schadt und William Peterson of this
city havo applied for a patent on a new
method of manufacturing crude sugar
and syrup from sugar beets. These
two gentlemen have succeeded in mak
ing raw sugar which is much superior
to tliat llrst mailu by Air. Peterson
about two months ago. They estimate
that from ono acre of beets of average
yield sixty-live gallons of syrup can be
made. Tho sugur they have made, even
in its raw state, can bo used for culin
ary purposes, and has very little vege
table taste or flavor. Tho cost of ex
tracting tho sugar from the beets is
only about a fourth of the cost of the
present method. Mr. Schadt is well
posted on tho chemistry of sugar mak
ing, and feels confident that tho pro
cess used by himself and Mr. Peterson
will be a grand thing for tho fnrmers.

apparent among eastern capitalists to
put in factories if it can be demon
strated they would prove profitable aud

It is not ulono tho approach of the

considerable feeling was aroused.
The appropriation for six religious

From the Press, New York City.
Morris Preslnner of No. 1 Pitt Street.
New York, who is a real cstaU a Rent
and collector of rents, cnught u severe
cold early hint spring, which st'ttled
upon his kidneys. Soon ho bPKatt to
puffer severe pain In his Itnekbon. suits
nnd chest. His symptomn grew rapidly
more ulurmltiK. until at lsst ho was as
helpless as a child, nnd could scarcely
move as he lay on Ills bod.
Though n native of Iierlln, Mr. Pros
Inner has lived In this country for forty
years, having served the country of his
adoption by three yenrs'-hnrd service
In the civil war. He enlisted with the
Nineteenth Illinois Infantry, taking
part in mnny battles and marching with
General Pherninn to the sen. He Is now
a member of Koltes Post, O. A. It., and
i one of the most popular men in the
Mr. Preslnner told n reporter the story
of his dreadful Illness nnd wonderfur
recovery. The reporter met him as he
was returning from a long walk. atuL
saying that lie hntl heard of his won
derful cure, asked him to tell the slot. v.
Ills words were as follows: "To begin
with, I was taken sick Jurt a year and n
month ago, having taken a .severe cold
which pettled on my kidneys. At llrst
I thought the pain that I had suffered
would sofin pass away, but. Instead of
doing this, it grow more Intense e ery
day. so that in a week I could walk only
with considerable difficulty.
"I cnlled In a doctor, who said 1 had
locomotor atixla and began treating
me for that disease. He did mo no good,
nnd all summer long I rnuld scarcely
ntteml to my business nt nil. Then t
called another doctor and look his medi
cine for several weeks, but experienced
no relief. Dr. Truman Nichols, r NV.
2S7 East Hroadway.whom t at last called
In, helped, me more than any vt the
other doctors, but along townrds fall 1
grew worse drsplte his treatment.
"Knrly In November the little
strength I had In my legs left me and
I was unable to stnnd. The pain In my
back nnd sides became almost unbear
able, and my limbs grew cold. An
electric battery I bought failed to help
me, and for weeks I felt myself gradu
ally growing weaker until all hope left.
"Some time before this I had read of
a wonderful cure a man lmd received
from Dr. Williams' 1'lnk Pills for I'ale
People, but was so prejudiced against
what f thought was a patent medicine
of the usual tvnrthless character that
1 could not make up my mind to try
them. As my pains Increased and death
seemed coming near, I thought of what I
had rend and of the symptoms of the
man who had been cured. They were
precisely the same as mine, and at
last, with my wife's earnest entr-aty, I
consented to try the Pink Pills.
"I am now mnvlnccd that these pills
saved my life. Gradually my strength
began to return, the desire to live rew
stronger within me. After having taken
three boxes I left my bed. This was
early in March. All pain had left me,
and that terrible dead feeling In my
legs had gone way. 1 was still very
weak, but before I had taken the fourth
box 1 was able to get down stairs for a
short walk In t.he open nlr. Now t feel
as If I had been horn again and am as
happy as a child."
