Engaged In Propagating a One-Germ
Seed at Washington That Gives
Hopes to Capitalists No Trouble
With Soil or Climate , It Is the Work.
There Is a prospect that the sugar
heel Industry will bo revived In the
middle west and If so It may be pos
sible that machinery will again bo
placed In the largo sugar factory north
of this oily and It may again become
a hive of Industry turning beets Into
commercial sugar. Certainly If It Is
desired to ralso beets anywhere In
the middle west It would bo cheaper
to ( Install Iho machinery In a building
already ereclod for the purpose to ( ho
saving of thousands of dollars raUior
than lo build and equip a new plant
UiriHighout , and In that event Norfolk
would naturally come In for first con-
Moral Inn.
According to n dispatch from Wash-
iigtou lo the World-Herald the sol-
nllsls In the department of ngrloul-
ire have found and am endeavoring
) eliminate the reason thnt led to
10 abandonment nf the Norfolk sugar
iclory. It Is found that It Is not the
fiu'l ' of the soil or the climate , hut
10 strenuous work that IH necessary
i caring for n crop nnd this they
ropnse lo eliminate. It IK said thai
ho fault lies In the fact thnt each
eel seed Is In fnct n bundle of seeds

pod Hint will eliminate the necessity
f thinning , which Is by far the hard-
st work of the boot grower. With
ils end accomplished It Is said that
11 the work of cnrlng for n crop can
m done by machinery. It Is an-
ouiiccd that the experimenters have
ucccodod in accomplishing their end
ml that In the near future the one-
erm beet seed will bo used nnd there

iroughout ( ho west.
Commenting upon the reason for
10 abandonment of the Norfolk plant
10 article says :
Effect of Factory Removal.
Last year the beet sugar business
ocelved a shock when the sugar
hints In Nebrnskn were admitted to
nve been questionable successes ,
'ho plant at Norfolk , In this state ,
vns dismantled nnd moved to Colo-
ndo. becnuso the country surrounding
he Nelirnskn town would not produce
ho necessary supply of beets.
This problem of beet supply bns
con the most serious one for n long
line , but it is believed now to bo
olvod. The difficulty Is not with the
011 or ollmnto or beets. It Is with
bo farmer.
Work Too Hard.
Italslng beets hni been necessarily
lard work- because much of It must
e done by hand. The American farm-
doesn't much fancy a business ( hat
ompels him to go out nnd pry his
orsnl vertnbran apart while stooping
ver n boot field nnd Incidentally lot-
Ing n hot sun burn the skin off tbe

Tbe Anierlcnn fnnner doesn't have
o do that sort of work. Tils notion

why should ( be American farmer
break his neck raising beets ? Thnt
being the way he fools about It the
department of ntcricnlture sot about
to produce a beet thnt could be raiser
nnd cultivated by machinery.
Oblect to Thlnninq ,
The real difficulty is not In plan *
Ing and weeding the beets : these two
functions can easily enough be per
formed by machinery. The troubl
relates to Mio beet's way of growing
U appears thnt what the unscien

Farmer. Ho simply declines to do it.
One Germ Seed.
So the diumrtment. of agriculture
set about ( o produce a boat with a
one-serin spec ! . If thnt sort of a
eed could be produced the problem
would bo solved. The boots could be
planted in drills just as corn Is plant
ed by machinery. The beets , placed
at regular and proper Intervals , would
como up singly and could be cultivat
ed hy machinery just as corn or po
tatoes arc.
The task of producing such a beet
seed was turned over to tbo scient
ists of the dppartmonf and they have
It to announced , turned the trick. Tbe
new oao-soedod seed has not been sub
jected to all the experiments that maybe
bo desired , but It hna been produced
and It IH going to be n SUCCOUR.

View of Live Stock Markets at South
Omaha , C. A. Mallory , Manager.
South Omaha , July 19. The cuttle
trade has not undergone much change
this week but has ruled more steady
at I he recent decline.
Strictly fat dry fed cnttlo are sell
ing better than any other grades and
we think the outlook more favorable
for this class of cattle during the sum
mer and fall months.
Grass cattle are coming more freely
and prices for range steers and cows
are the lowest of the season. The
packers , as usual , can and will con
trol the market for grass cattle and
wo would not be surprised to see still
lower prices ami advise shipping any
thing thnt will come in competition
with range cattle soon as convenient.
Butchers' stock unless very choice
selling at the lowest prices of the sea
sou and dealers must Ucep in close
touch with us and the markets 01
they will be disappointed.
Wo do not look for much cliaugp It :
the market for corn-fed cattle this
week or next , but look for lower pric
es for other grades most any time.
Hogs The promised advance In tin
boa ; market came In earnest and wi
are glad to note that so many of ou
friends and shippers had hogs on tin
market. .
Shipping and fresh meat trade car
ried ( he packers along to the tune of
an advance of 25@35c In the market ,
reaching the high point today
( Wednesday ) . The extreme heat
caused moderate receipts at Chicago
where they bad a "run-away" market
and liberal receipts at the "river mar
kets. " especially hern and Sioux City ,
whore the packers fought hard and
wo failed to follow the full advance.
The ( jualtty continues good Imt av-
enigo weight a little lighter.
Today the market opened active and
ruled strong and fully lOc higher with
the bulk selling $5. < 52' . { . < 8 > 5.C7i and
top $5.70. Later the market weak
ened and closed dull with part of the
advance lost. A reaction is certainly
aduo after such an advance and wo ad
vise our readers to operate according
ly. We have confidence , however , in
good prices throughout the summer
but natural reactions must como.
Watch the markets and conditions
carefully and keep your hogs coming
regularly to us and your average will
bo all right.
Sheep and lambs ruled steady with
seine oigns of a reaction from ( ho low
est prices this wee ! : . Prospect lower

"Aunt. Jane" Gordon hns finally
reached the jail stnge in her career
and ' spoilt the night In the city baa-
tile. For months past she has been
, so addicted to the drug habit that she 4
has moped around on the streets In jf
a manner that was no credit to her-
self or of no especial advantage to the
town , nnd the police took the stops
necessary to get her out of tbe way.
It is not Improbable that the dipsoma-
niac law will be applied to her case
unless she reforms voluntarily or
makes herself less conspicuous during
her drug orgies.
