plaint of Miss Madeline Ray , a young woman

received from her father's estate and she
was anxious to earn a livelihood for her
self. Hoglo at this time represented the

j Hratlon "Modern Machinery. " She accepted
I the offer , but towards the end of June wni

she was well cared for and It was when
she was convalescing that Mlfs Ray allege ;
that Hogle betrayed her under promise ol

from Omaha has been scheduled to leave
there at 2 o'clock ; after tomorrow the last
car will leave the other side of the river
not later than 12:15. : There will be other

whereby parties wishing to pm-chase com
mutation tickets can secure them--nt Wll-

An ( o NtiKnr Itrot Culture.
IOWA CITY , la. , Oct. 31. ( Special. ) S.
X. Bellamy , a farmer of this section , who
Is an enthusiast on beet culture , has Issued
the following to Iowa farmers :
"There should be something done to unite
capital and labor to produce sugar beets In
the state of Iowa. Iowa farmers , especially
poor farmers , and renters who have to sell
a grain crop ns soon as harvested , especially
corn and oats , do not rcnllro but from $3 to
$6 per aero gross , as the result of thr
four years' fanning , m.u . . . . . o-o surely can
see that docs not pay Interest on $50 to $60
land when the expenses arc to come out of
crop nt above prices. Wheat and potatoes
pay some better , tout sugar beets at $1 per
ton to the farmer pays big Interest on land
worth $200 per acre. 1 am told by good
German authority that land In Germany
rents for beets at $12 per acre , that Is four
times the cash rent for land In Iowa , and by
the way that would bo a big Interest on $30
or $60 laud and would < beat corn and oats
several times. Wo raise too much corn and
oats. There are millions of bushels of these
two grain crops now In store at railroad
stations that have been held for better prices
for two and three years and at present prices
will lose the dealer some money. I say we
raise too much corn and oats for market ,
so you see there Is an over-production of
these two crops. Now If a largo share of
this land was used for sugar beets there
would be less corn and oats , consequently
wo would get higher prices for what wo
did raise. Wo feel sure there Is plenty of
Idle capital and Idle labor that could be
profitably used In producing the $140,000,000
worth of beet sugar wo ihuy annually from
Germany , Franco and Spain and a few other
countries and pay for It In gold , too. Some
of our "political experts" say because of a
scarcity of money Is the reason we get such
low prices for our corn and oats. It cannot
bo true. When the president made a call
for a loan of $2,000,000 at 3 per cent from
the laboring classes of people's holding in
savings tanks and other places of deposit
of from $20 to $500 there was an offer of
$1,000,000,000 more than was wanted. So
you see wo have plenty of money to Invest
In the beet sugar business for the benefit
of capital and labor and the Iowa farmers
that are producing too much corn and oats
to got a paying profit out of It. "
