A business man of Cincinnati recently
penned an obituary notice for the press,
on the death of his wife. He is one of
the kind who never advertise, except
when it comes free. He eulogized the
noblo character of his wife, spoke of her
generous deeds, and ended by saying
that she was the inventor of the famous
bottled goods sold only by him, all other
leing base imitations. The news dis
patcher hits the truth when he says:
"tears in one eye, business in the other."
Jcst for the novelty of the thing how

The Fremont Herald is democratic all
the way through, but when it comes to
a question of tho public, or Cleveland's
peculiar crowd of people, the Herald is
for the people. In a late issue it says:
'It is announced that President Cleve
land will veto the Bland seigniorage bill
if it passes the senate, for the reason that
the bill would be destructive of the re
pose which now surrounds the financial
condition of the country, and further
that it would tend to weaken our credit
' abroad. Well, the 'repose' part is all
' right, but what the people want is a lit
tle more life and a little less death."
A Washington correspondent says
that the Wilson bill as it now 6tands
repeals all the reciprocity provisions of
the McKinley tariff law, and that while
it may create the possibility of protect
ing the sugar interests of this country,
.the repeal will result in closing the best
-markets we have for pork and its pro
ducts, as under the reciprocity provision
we get most of our sugar from Germany
and that country in return admits our
pork, wheat, and other staples of the
-farm. The repeal of the reciprocity pro
vision in the law is one of the most ob

The hard times of the past year will
be greatly increased by the passage of
the infamous Wilson bill. Every possi

measure to delay it in any event. We
can better afford a few months of uncer

sity, suffering and distress. Under the
most favorable circumstancesthe Wilson
bill, if it becomes a law, cannot be chang
ed until the summer of 1897. We ear
. nestly recommend that you will urge
United States Senators, irrespective of
party, to defeat or by every parliamen
tary method delay the passage of this
measure. On November 6th, the people
will have an opportunity to speak their

The constitution of an association of
retail dealers provided that "whenever
an account against any person shall have
been listed in the abstract of unsettled
accounts issued by our general associa

branch by said association as unsettled,
no member shall in any case open an
account without security with such de
linquent, and the opening of such account
by any member with such person shall
be considered a misdemeanor and sub
ject such member to an investigation by
the executive board, and if found guilty
he shall pay to said board a fine of $20
for the sole use and benefit of this
branch, and his neglect or refusal to
comply with this demand shall make
him liable to expulsion from said asso

against one of the members of said asso

whom a claim had been, by the defend
ant, procured to be listed, held, that the
defendant thereby rendered himself lia

technical libel, or to the refusal of mem

SOUTH PAYS THE BILL
Hepburn's Remarks to Ex-Confederate
in the House.
The debate on the pension appropria
tion bill in the House at times displayed
considerable spirit. The principal speak
ers were Messrs. Dolliver, Hepburn,
Enloe and Cannon.
Mr. Dolliver (Rep., Iowa) took the floor.
He would not have obtruded himself, in
this debate, he said, were he not in re
ceipt of letters complaining in terms
that excited liis sympathy with the pres
ent management of the pension office.
Mr. Hepburn (Rep., Iowa) declared
that the late Confederate States contrib
uted not one dollar to the payment of
pensions. Of the $150,000,000 internal
revenue taxes the South paid less than
$9,000,000; of the $177,000,000 custom
receipts the South paid but $4,000,000;
of the miscellaneous receipts less than
$2,000,000. "So that," said he, address
ing the Southern members, "you con
tribute less than $15,000,000 to the rev
enues or the government, How do you
get that back? Nine millions returns as
sugar bounty, $5,000,000 in pensions, and
$5,000,000 as a deficit in postal receipts.
You therefore receive back $3,000,000
more than you contribute. You con
tribute not a cent to Northern pensions.
What difference does it make to you
what we do with our own money?" The

the administration Mr. Hepburn found
in the fact that Orover Cleveland was
President; second, that Hoke Smith was
Secretary of the Interior. When Hoke
Smith went into office, he continued,
507,000 applications were pending. The
applicants were dying at the rate of
17,000 a year. Instead of adjudicating
these cases the department went back
and suspended 12,000 pensioners whose
cases were in law res adjudicata. How
did this record compare with that of his
predecessor, who in the previous six
months allowed 110,000 claims? He de
nied that there were any great number
of fraudulent pensioners.

the infliction of corporal punishment for
misdeeds would not be in strict accord

States. The truth is that there is no
way for the people to manage this mat

good men and true, men who know what
their constituents wish, and who cannot
be swerved from their duty. The fel

and sufficient remedy to be applied in
securing the proper representatives.
The Alma Record prints the following,
which certainly scores several points
more in favor of alfalfa: George N. D.
Bear, a farmer who resides northwest of
Alma a few miles, and who follows his
vocation in a manner to obtain best re
sults, has a small piece of alfalfa that
deserves special mention. This particu
lar field was pastured until May 11,1893,
before the stock was taken from it.
Afterwards Mr. Bear cut a crop from the
field which had ripened and has since
been threshed, turning out seven bush
els per acre, and this week the seed was
sold at $6 per bushel After the seed
crop had been removed and cared for a
crop of hay was cut from this same field
which made two tons per acre and was
marketed for $7 per ton. Estimating
the first crop as hay at half the value of
the second crop of hay, the land netted

We, the committee on water works, in
connection with the mayor and city
council after carefully investigating the
different methods of providing for a bet
ter supply of water, at the least expense,
have concluded that the well system iB
the best, and it is very important that
the water bonds should carry at the com
ing election, and while the amount is
rather small to comply with the wishes
of a number of our tax payers in this
city, it will bo sufficient and enable us
to increase our inadequate water supply.
We all should understand the situation
fully and be impartial on this question.
An increase over the present supply will
not only accommodato many more but
also will economize the maintenance of
the entire system.
The plan adopted by the council has
been duly considered, and we will ex
plain the same to the public and hope to
remove all doubts to the contrary. The
tubular well system is probably not so
well known among our city tax payers as
it is among the farming community. It
is tho latest invention in well making,
the point or strainer can bo located in
the best supplying water strata and is
far ahead of the old driven well; however,
the filtering process is virtually the
same, but with the latter, a point maybe
driven partly beyond or not far enough,
and the supply is uuknowingly reduced.
Our present well system, consisting of 16
driven wells, each 3 inches in diameter,
and in a space of only 400 square feet,
has been a source of contention and ex
pense, large sums of money would have
been saved for fuel, repairing machinery
and extra labor, had the proposed course
of the present council been adopted
three years ago; however, better late
than never, and now the proposed system
will consist of 48 tubular wells, each 2
inches in diameter and in a space of 6400
square feet, gaining 6000 square feet over
the present driven well system. One can
readily notice that these wells will be far
enough apart and not robbing one an
other of their respective supply, also
enabling the pumps to worlTfroe, conse
quently less fuel and pumping required,
besides promoting longevity of ma
chinery. The water works system has been self
sustaining for the last two years, but the
present deficit in the water works fund is
due to repairing of machinery, pulling
and re-driving of wells, adding a large
feed water heater and purifier one year
ago, also extending 6-inch mains on Q
street last year, which was very essential
to make another cross connection to the
north side from the 10-inch main near
the stand pipe in case of a break on the
one on Olive street.
The cost of all the above mentioned
amounting to about $2,000, has been
drawn from the waterworks fund.
At present, in case of a big fire, we are
not able to turn on direct pressure from
the wells, and with consumers' service
pipes in use, we must fall back to the
reserve in the stand pipe, which would
only supply the pumps for a very short
time, when full, and thereafter we would
be at the mercy of the names. The Un
ion PoctCo Ry Ct. are consuming large
quantities of water, and arc paying very
regularly under the existing contract
since two years ago. They must also be
recognized, or we may lose them as con
sumers, should we at any time be guilty
of gross negligence, and we cannot afford
to do so. They are entitled to a suffi
cient and positive supply, as well as
Should the insurance companies take
notice of our present failing, it will not
take a great head to figure the results.
Therefore we say, see that the bonds
carry for the proposed well system, and
in course of time another effort will be
made in extending mains wherever most
needed and beneficial to the city and
Br Order of Water Com.
Fred. Jewell of Platte Center has had
two years' experience in sugar beet cul
ture, and says he has found it profitable
in several ways. Of course the industry
was on a more extensive scale than the
ordinary farmer can undertake, being on
300 acres, season of '92, and 400, season
of 93. Corn in that locality averaged 30
bushels to the acre, oats 18, the beets 8J
tons, and they cost, laid by $29.50. The
last season the beets were worked on
contract labor, families being employed
at $14 by tho acre Wfc band labor. A
neighbor farmer of luVput eight acres in
beets which netted him $327; the same
neighbor had 29 acres to corn, 20 bushels
to the acre, at 20 cts. a bushel; 17 acres
of oats, 21 bushels to the acre, at 20 eta
a bushel; 6 acres of spring wheat, 2,
bushels to the acre, at 40 cts. a bushel,
all together, on 52 acres, realizing gross
product of $217.40, which shows what
can be done.
The beet is 60 per cent water, draws
its sustenance greatly from the air and
the sunlight, and is not very exhausting
upon the soil. Any of the root crops
leave the ground mealy; beet roots go
down sometimes to the depth of 7 feet,
and are thus better than a subsoil plow.
The effect on after crops is shown by
this comparison: two pieces of land, side
by side, season of 92, were planted to
sugar beets and corn; the season of "93
both were sown to oats, the former yield
ing 30 bushels to the acre, the latter 10,
just one-third as much.
Beet pulp and oats, half and half,
make a good feed for cattle, and beets of
a low grade, 50 tons to the acre, make a
paying crop for feeding to stock.
Mr. Jewell, being asked if he could
recommend beet culture as a paying in
dustry to the farmers, answered that
under certain circumstances he would,
but under others he would not. For
instance, any intelligent farmer located
within 2 or 3 miles from a point of
shipment, having good bottom Jand or
rich table land, and who will start at the
business carefully and learn it thor
oughly before launching out upon too
large a scale, will make a success and
realize twice as much profit from every
day's work-be performs, as he can from
wheat, oats or corn, providing his beets
net him $4.50 per ton, which they will at
present factory prices and railroad rates
from Platte county. But for those
whose land is farther than this from a
point of shipment; those who have poor,
sandy land or alkali, or rough hill land,
and those who wish to sow aad reap in
the sum wanner as their fathers did,
and to handle 100 to 120 acres of plow
land to the team, I certainly should
advise letting the sugar beet industry
As to what it costs to raise beets, you
can hire all the hand work done that is
hoeing, thinning and weeding for $14
per acre, and all the hand work in har
vesting the crop for $4 per acre, and one
man and team can plow, prepare the
ground, plant and cultivate 30 acres of
beets, which will require 3 to 3 months'
work, and two men and teams will pull
and deliver to cars 1 mile 30 acres of
beets averaging 12 tons per acre, in two
months, so by computing these costs and
adding $2 per acre for seed you can
easily determine the profits per acre as a
12-ton crop will bring $60 an acre, less
50c a ton freight.
An average crop of beets is from 6 to
18 tons per acre, a fair average, and 12
tons an ordinary crop, the same as 20 to
60 bushels would be a fair average of our
corn crop, and 40 bushels an ordinary
As to the effect of beets upon land, I
think one crop of beets in three years
will not run the land any worse than one
crop of wheat in three years, and not
near so much as a crop of flax or millet
once in ten years; in fact, I think the
beets perforate tho sub-soil so deeply,
and leave the. ground so mealy, taken
with the fact that most of the sugar is
produced by the action of the sun's rays
and such a per centage of the rest of the
beet is water, that one crop is no detri
ment to onr land. "
As to laborers we have found no diffi
culty in getting them at $14 per acre,
and as they make good wages at that
price, we anticipate no difficulty to get
them in the future.
