Survey Has Been Made by the
Union Pacific Company.
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
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.
Six Sections of the New Switchboard
Will be Installed at Once in
[ From Tuesday's Dally , !
Blueprints for the now telephone
exchange in the McCIary block have
been received by Manager Sprecher
for his approval. The drawings indl
cate that the new olllce will bo one
of the most complete anywhere in the
state and it is expected that a portion
tion of the now board will bo installed
at once.
The plans show that a 2-horso power
generator and motor the main frame ,
cable terminals , storage battery plant
and wire chief's desk will all be ! ( >
cated in the north room. In the ad-
exchange. Six sections of the now
joining room will be the operators'
board will bo Installed just as soon
as it arrives and the rest of the piece
will bo installed when the move is
made into the now quarters after the
first of the year.
I It is estimated now that there will
be more than a dozen hello girls kept
busy taking care of talkative Nor
folk and they will be about as nicely
located as any dozen maids that you
might want to see. The manager's
office will bo the first room on the
right as you enter so that you may
tell your troubles without delay.
Became Confused by tiie Electric
Saturday Evening and Took a
Wrong Turn.
Some men who were passing
the Union Pacific tracks between Nor
folk and Madison avenues about sup
per time Saturday night heard a ve
hide bumping along up the tracks
and the first thought was Miat It was
a hand car being pushed , ilong by the
section men , but on lookh'g back saw
a team of horses hitched to a buggy
They at once understood that some
one had made a wrong turn , ant !
were fully convinced that the glare
of the electric lights had confuscc :
the driver when they heard him say
"Shay , thish a rough ro'ad ; shorn
thing like corguroy way back caslit
maybe thish aint the road 'tall. "
The follow was driving directly ui
the tracks over rails and ties anil getting
ting some severe jolts at every mov
Some 'men took hold of the horses
bridles and directed them back inti
the road and the confused driver wa
proceeding on his way all correct a
far as they could see him.

After Three Years the Shooters May
Kill the Birds Again for Thirty
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.
John Trainer Had a Glorius Time Bu
Not Enough Was Left to Pay
an Assessment.
John Trainer , a laboring man , wa
up in the jail over night on the charg
of being drunk and disorderly. Th
policy of making him a horrible example
ample was considered , but an inventory
tory of his ability to liquidate wa
made and it was found that ho would
bo able to stand for just eleven cents.
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

Run at the Factory Promises
to be Excellent.
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

Some Reasons Why They Should Re
celve Better Pay.
[ 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

sult might have been more serious ,
If not fatal , and several boys would
