Farmer. Can Name a Chemist. .
The .foUowing from the beet sugar
companies explains itself :
It having been brought to our notice
that dissatisfaction exists among the
farmers r garding the testing oftheir
beets , we wish to make the following
suggestions : "l'hat the farmers procure -
cure a chemist , appointed by the governor -
ernor , or recommended by Prof. Nicholson -
son of the State univei'sity , who shall
check the tests made by the factory
chemist We will give such a man
every facility for conducting his work
properly and fairly. We would suggest
that the farmers also appoint some one
to select the samples from the wagons
and cars , with oui own sampler ; that
these beets be cut in half and be given
t , ? each chemist , so as to avoid any pos-
sLble error by difference of sample , and
if the farmers' chemist proves to be accurate -
curate and just in his work we will accept -
cept his tests in case they differ from
our own. In view of the doubts that
have been expressed as to the accuracy
with which we test the beets , we think ,
In justice to our company , the beet-
growers should adopt this plan oT confirming -
firming our results , and we further
urge the necessity of speedy action in
the matter , as but little time remains
for harvesting the crop. Yours truly ,

Nebraska Sugar 1idustriec.
Lincoln dispatch : Daily reports are
received by the secretary of state concerning -
cerning the sugar industries at Grand
Island and Norfolk. The season corn-
menced October 1. Up to the 15th inst.
the receipt of sugar beets at the Grand
island factory amounted to 4,429 tons.
The amount of granulated sugar manufactured -
ufactured to that date amounts to
400,000 pounds. The NorfoIk factory
has received 5,017 tons of beets. It has
produced 360,000 pounds of granulated
sugar , making a total of sugar made
by the two factories of 700,000 pounds.
These two factories receive on an
average , daily , , O0Q tons of beets , or
1,500 apiece. 'Ihie sugar bounty
amounts to 1 a ton , in reality , to the
producer , for it was with the under
standing that the beetraiser was to receive -
ceive $3 per ton for beets , instead of
$4 , that the bounty of five-eights of 1.
cent a pound was voted by the last leg-
islature. Thus the two factories at
Grand Island and Norfolk are distributing -
tributing among the farmers who went
into the beet industry about $1.500 a
c3ay each. The manufacturing season
lasts about three months. One-sixth
of this time has now , elapsed. The
same avciage hept up would give an
output for the season for the two factories -
tories of 4,560,00Q pounds of rnanufac
Chicory Crop in Valley County.
North Loup dispatch : j Experimental
plats of chicory which were planted
here last season grew with remarkable
vigor during the entire season , but it
was a great surprise to all who had
been interested in watching the growth
of the plants to learn the facts in regard -
gard to what an enormous yield they
were making. One plat , raised by
Attorney E. J. Babcock. was divided
into sections of rows one rod in lngth ,
fi'oin which comparative calculations
could be inde , and after topping and
trimming as required by the factory at
O'Neill , the roots weighed atthe rate
of from eight to seventeen tons to the
acre. As the German Chicory company
of O'Neill this year pays 10. 50 per ton
for the roots , and the labor required in
their harvesting nd tillage does not
greatly exceed that of the sugar beet ,
it vil1 be readily seen that the chicory
plant is one of great promise for ecu-
Sugar Beet Factory Cheinist.
Farmers and managers of the Grana
Island and Norfolk beet sugar factories
have joined in requesting Governor
Ilolcomb to appoint one chemist ior
each-of the factories. There has been
no complaint concerning the chemical
analysis conducted by the factorhs on
which purchase of beets are based , but
in order to protect both the buyer and
seller of beets and to satisfy all parties
concerned , the joint request for a chem-
1st , who shall serve in the capacity of
an umpire , has been made.
There is no mention of a chemical
analysis in the sugarbounty bill passed
by the last legislature over the gow-
ernOrS veto. That act simply says no
bounty shall be paid on sugar made
from beets for which as much as 5 a
ton shall not have been paid. This
virtually fixes the price of beets at $ a
ton , but the written contracts with
growers state that the beets , must con-
tam 12. per cent of saccharine matter.
80 per cent of which shall be pure.
Beets that do not come up to this test
are probably not taken at all by the
factory , or are bought at a reduce
Bank Robber Caught.
harrisburg dispatch : A bold at
tempt was made to rob the Banner
County bank of this town.
About 4 p. rn. a masked man entered
the bank and ordered Mr. Carlisle , the
cashier , to throw up his hands. Mi
Carlisle stepped through a side door
through his residence and out of coors.
and securing the robber's horse , raised
the alarm. In a few minutes a dozen
armed men wercon the streets and the
bank was surrounded.
The robber secured what money was
in sight , threw it in a sack and came
out. Aftei the exchange of a dozen
shots or so the robber started to run.
and was finally lwought down , shot
through the leg.
Fortunately no one was shot but the
thief. It is not known whether he had
any pals or not. It turned out to be a
man by the name of Graham. a rancher -

WAsIINOT0N , Oct. 2S.-R. E. Prcs-
ton , director of the mint , in discussing
his report on the vorld' production
of gold. anl silver in 1894 , makes the
following statement : "I am satisfied
that the gold product of the world
vil1 not be less than $200,000,010 for
the calendar year i89 , which will be
an increase of $20,000,000 over 1804.
01 this increase the Unitedtates vil1
contribute not less than $7,500,000.
Colorado will. furnish from $ ,50OOo0
to $4,000,000 , California $2)00,000
and Arizona , New Mexico , Idaho and
Montana will. make handsome show-
ings. In Colorado the principal increase -
crease will come from the Cripple
Creek district. This district alt.ogether
will probably produce $15,000,00o this
year. itrequired some time to eon-
vince capitalists that this was a wonderfully -
derfully rich district. The shipments
of rich ore made in the last year have
removed all doubt about the future of
the Cripple Creek country. Leadvilie
will also show an increase this year in
the output of gold. . Some of the
mines in this region are very produc-
tive. In the Leadville region there
are found gold , silver , copper , lead
and iron. There is a general revival
of gold mining throughout this region.
'California mines are sure to show
an increased output from this time
forwrd. The establishment of the
debris commission in California has
given a great impulse to hydraulic
mining , which is exceedimrly profit-
able. Where there is placer mining ,
particularly in Montana and Idaho , the
poduct of gold will not be so great as
it would have been bad there been
heavy snows in the mountains , There
is a shortage of water in those states
which serves to handicap the miners.
The returns from quartz mining there
are very satisfactory. Soin'e heavy
shipments of ore arc being made from
helena. Everywhere 1 vcnt in the
mining regions of the West I saw cvi-
den ces of great activity and prosperity.
"Not alone in the United States is
the output of gold increasing. South
Africa has gonenhead of Australia in
the amount of its gold product , and
will produce this year a vast quantity
of the precious metal. Australia probably -
ably vtll contribute $2,000Ot)0 ) or
$3,000,000 of the increase. Russia vill
produce from $2,000,000 to $3,000,000
moie than it did last year. Russias
output last year fell off. but the increase -
crease in Siberia this year will be
marked , judging from the information
I have rccived from our minister at
St. Petersburg. Mexico , which eon-
tributeil $4,500,01)0 ) in gold last year ,
vill make a far better showing this
year.'c gained last year for the
gold stock of the world about $7,000-
000 of the gold formerly hoarded itt
India , arid we have every reason to
look for an increase this year and for
a number of years to come. "
Few Visitors Allowed to See the Taylor
Brothers iii Jail.
FAYETTE , Mo. , Oct. 2&-Sheriff
George E. Stanley of Carroll county ,
who was here yesterday , said that almost -
most prohibitory rules had been
adopted against allowing the Taylors
to see visitors since their convic-
tion. This course , he explained , had
been rendered necessary by the great
number of applicants who desire to
see the boys , some of whom are interested -
ested in their salvation , others to discuss -
cuss the crime with them and many
simply from morbid Curiosity. During -
ing a recent religious gathering in
Carroilton , Mr. Stanley says lie thinks
about 400 preachers asked permission
to see the Taylors. Of course they had
to be refused , for to let one in would
have necessitated the admission of all.

spirits. On his return to time hotel ,
shortly after 12 oclock , he chatted with
his vife , and showed no signs of illness ,
but five minutes after he had entered

happened that a doctor was in the hotel -

ummoncd. After a brief exarnmnation
he declared that Mr. Van \Vyck had
been stricken with paralysis. and advised -

the First district , lmt declined to ac-
cept. although at that time he had become -
come an active member of the peonl&s
party. lie , however , took an active

tvith his neighbors ; of barrels and bas.
