LINE WILL BENEFIT. , OTHERS. East End of the City Would be an Ideal Location for Manufacturing Industries with Railroad Facilities In that Portion of Town. ( From Tuesilny'H Dally. ] It Is uncertain when the Union Pa cific construction gang will bo hereto to begin the building of the side truck from the main line to the Sugar City Cereal mills , but It is hoped by those Interested that the work may be com pleted before bad weather sets in. The line has been surveyed to leave the main line of the Union Pacific and the M. & 0. a short distance west of the bridge across the Northfork. As surveyed , the spur line will follow the < like around the bond of the river to First street and thence into the grounds of the Sugar City Cereal mills. While the spur is Intended largely for the advantage of the mill company It will bo very convenient for other busi ness interests In that part of the town ns , for instance the Edwards Brad ford Lumber company * , who can have their coal and lumber delivered to within about a block of their yards , whereas heretofore Jt has boon nec essary for them to haul their stock several blocks. The city would have some advantage in having coal de livered to the waterworks pumping station. Then , too , it will make It possible for other business interests and man ufacturing Interests to locate In that section of town , while If the company ever desired to run a line to the Junc tion or southern portion of the city , the start would already bo made. If the spur is built it will have an effect on the dike to keep the North- fork river within bounds , as the com pany would have to maintain a grade and the grade would operate as a dike.

QUAIL SEASON OPENS SUNDAY , After Three Years the Shooters May Kill the Birds Again for Thirty Days. For the first time In nearly three years hunters In Nebraska may shoot , beginning with Sunday morning , the iroluclud Bob White. After a per od which very nearly completes the three years of closed season in the state , the laws once more allow the killing of the quail without penalty , for thirty days. The law was passed by the legisla ture throe years ago with a purpose of protecting the qiwil and increasing their numbers. They have increased remarkably and the woods are fill ! of thorn now. North Nebraska , stll the paradise of the nlmrod , is fairly alive with the pretty llttlo birds am ; no doubt many of them will bo slaught ered now. But the wholesale killing of them is still a penalty and there may stll bo arrests if this clause of the statute is violated. Not more than twenty five birds are allowed to bo shot on any ono day and no person shall eve have more than fifty birds in his pos session at any ono time.

This was not considered sufficient to pay the costs of making out the nec essary papers and ho was dismissed with the warning not to let it happen again , Run at the Factory Promises to be Excellent. PAY $12,000 A MONTH FOR LABOR. Will Use 30.0CO to10,000 Yards of Fil ter Cloth During the Season's Run. Average Yield Last Year Was 10.01 Tons to the Acre. I From S.iiunliiy'H Unity 1 "Tills haw been an unusually good year for the sugar boot In Nebraska , " .said Manager J. N. Bundlck of ( lie American Heel Sugar company In Nor folk to The News thin morning. "The beets that have eomo Into the factory thus far in the campaign are testing up somewhat better than last year , and last year they \\oro good. "Thoro are required to furnish the factory with raw matorhil , between 1,000 and 5,000 acres of boots annual ly. That the farmers are making money from this growing In evidenced by the fact that they get pretty nearly .ffiO from every acre planted resulting in all to between $200.000 and $250,000 ou > ry year for the growers. Average Acre Yields 10 Tons. The average acre of beets yielded hint year 10.01 tons of beets and ; the average price paid per ton was $ .1.95 , KO that the cash receipts for every acre amounted to $ III.55. The farm ers are paid $1 per ton as a minimum rate and arc given 25 cents additional for each percentage of sugar. ; Tlio factory pays the freight on all beets shipped In and it also pays to each farmer who hauls in his boots 25 cents per ton for transportation. It Is too early In the season to es timate the average tonnage for the Holds this year. Every indication , however , points to the fact that it will be as good or better than last. To show something of the work that IH going on now out at the factory , the figures which toll of $12,000 paid out for labor alone eacli month will mean much to the average person. Knormous quantities of supplies are used for the work , among which may bo mentioned IiO.000 to 40,000 yards of filter cloth , 73,000 sugar bags and thousands of dollars' worth of other supplies. 7,500,000 Pounds Annually. The factory converts boots into 7.500,000 pounds of pure white sugar every year. It does this by grinding through just 400 tons of boots every twenty-four hours. After all of the sweetness that Is possible to bo extracted from the boots has been bagged for the market and shipped to the jobber at Omaha , the pulp is delivered to the growers free of charge and Is used by thorn to feed their cattle. It makes most ex cellent food for the feeders and weighs up well when they go upon the scales. All of the pulp left over after the farmers are thoroughly satisfied Is fed by a company of stockmen to cat tle in the stock yards on the property of the sugar company. Only those farmers who grow beets are entitled to pulp and they arc demanding it more and more every season. Twelve Years of Work. The factory has boon In operation for twelve years , having boon built In 1800 and having made Its first run In the year 1891. The wheels have been turning every year since very regularly and the capacity Is greater now than it has ever been before.

[ From WeilneMliij'H D.illy.l In asking for more pay the rural mall carriers have a cause that mer its the serious .consideration of con gress. The carriers now receive $300 a year , out of which they must pro vide a horho and wagon and care for the horse. Their routes vary from twenty to fifty miles'over roads that are usually bad and frequently worse. The work Is hard and exacting. In winter they are subjected to much exposure , and It would seem as a matter of justice that they deserved at louht as good pay as the city car riers who encounter fewer hardships. The rural delivery of mail has be come ono of the most successful ex periments over undertaken by the postal department. It has brought the farmer Into dally touch with the world , and has destroyed the elements of isolation that narrowed the lives of himself and his family despite the greater resistance on their part. With the extension of the service there should bo reasonable compensation for Iho ourrlorH. They began their work an an experiment , and their sal ary WIIH ll.ved arbitrarily at a vorj low llgure lu comparison with the Kalailen paid In general In the govern ment Horvlco. They are doing their work faithfully ami well , and the man who covorii a fifty mlle route nix ihi\H lu Iho week , rain or nhlne , Hhould certainly bo paid an much an the gov ernment clerk who never works more limn eight lionni a day and IUIH thirty days' vacation every year.

Two or throe woelm ago occurred an episode here , Hiiyn the Itevlew , of which no mention was made at the tlmo because the item was crowded out at the last moment for hick of space. The story , in an exaggerated form , lias gained some circulation at other points , and for thai reason and to set it right , wo menlloir It at this lain day. We refer to the mlschlcvious prank of some boys who ought to have known better In tying together the hands and feet of a smaller playmate and then sus pending him from the branch of a treo. Another boy who witnessed the performance but Is said to have had no part in it , informed the parents of the suspended boy and ho was taken from his dangerous position without delay and before any serious damage was done. Had the boy remained sus pended for an indefinite time the re sult might have been more serious , If not fatal , and several boys would have had reform school sentences staring them In the face. As it Is , tlio matter has boon dropped- the Interested parties , mid it is not prob able that anything of the sort will occur again.
