KCOTTFI:L,i;FK, Neb., Nov. 32.-Ppe-rinl.)
The Hcottsbluff Sugar company
made Us first payment for beets Friday,
amounting to t8.r00. This Is estimated
as about hnlf of the crop. The record
breaking run was Jnt made by a day
shirt of twelve hours In which there waa
turned out by the mill 2,700 sacks or sugar.
The mill Is dally putting out about
half a million pounds of sweetness. It Is
estimated that the sugar campaign will
continue almut seventy-five dnys more,
while the big crop here and the light
crop at Hterllng has caused tho company
to mako soma shipments to that point.
Feeding Incldmit to the beet crop hoi
asnumed proportion far In excess of early
predictions. About COM cattle and 60,000
sheep are being fed In the valley. Alfalfa
la bringing fkoO In the stack and other
feed equally high.
ATater has been turned out of the aev.

of operstlon and result. Over 10.000 acres

Talks for Wemea.
BotJallstj at the meeting of the Omaha
ITrllosophleul society Uunday afternoon
had It all their own way on the woman's
suffrage question, for there was only one
person to say anything on the "antl"
sldo, Dr. W. M. Ward, and he was called
down by the chairman before he' had
made his point, having already used
twice the time allowed for each speaker.
Tho numerous speeches in favor of
woman suffrago wero punctuated with
The talk was started by a debate be
tween Kanrle J. Qulnby and Mrs. George
W. Covell. Just to make sure that botn
sides would be representetf, Mr. Qulnby
talked against woman suffruge, though
he Is ardently in favor of It. Then, after
Mrs. Covell had "come back" at him,
Just to make sure that she had not over
looked anything, he answered all the
arguments ha had advanced In hla first
About a flosen persons, men and women,
then "stood up" for downtrodden woman.
There being no one to debate against,
each one told of some argument he had
heard against woman suffrage and then
proceeded to tear It to pieces. One pule,
dark-browed man with a mass of black
hair fastened at the back.' of his nock
with a ribbon, to whom the audience
rather looked for A monologue, did not
fulfill the expectation, but everybody else
expected to talk-old talk. It was the
unanimous opinion that the debate waa
won by the woman suffrage side.
Tho stock arguments against suffrage
were oftored-that woman is the clinging
vine, that alio should not be sullied by
the political cennpool, that she doesn't
know how to use the opportunities be
has, that she is too emotional to vote.
"Yea," said Mr. Oconto W. Covell. In
answer' to tho first, "men think a woman
shouNl be a fragrant rose. I'd rather be
a pumpkin flower."
"Wltuout vomen," tald Oscar A- Al
bright, "political parties have got rotten
to the core, except the socialist party.
I do not vote.' politics is so rotten that 1
don't know how to vote. The women will
"Tho only reason women do not have
the ballot now," said Dr. Merttam, "Is
thut they are slaves to the fables of the
church. When thoy null bellevliur what
the church tells them and when they quit
spending their youth In wishing for a
husband to love and pet them, then they
will be ready to vote."
'Thoy say woman should not vote be
cause she does not bear arms," said
1-aurle J. Qulnby. "That is all the more
reason why she should vote; she might
stop this Infernal , practice of bearing
"If we had to wait for wlsloin, there
would be might few rea voting," said
Mrs. W. 13. Shafer of the Woman's
Suffrage ' association, answering the
"bearing arma" argument, said that not
all the men In fhe army bear arms, since
th War dopartment had recently issued
a decree that camp and post cooks didn't

There liuve been and still are many
varieties of treatment for pneumonia.
A long list would be required to indicate
all the medicaments which have been
employed against It Pome even con
sider that this affection Is an aliment
which has a definite cycle. They are of
opinion that no medication should be
adopted which might act on It and dis
turb Its development, the proper course
to take being one of "expectation," or.
bettor; a therapeaullque armee more
particularly designed to combat com
The therapeutlque armee waa at
one time tn vogue; today It la almost
completely dethroned and a return Is
being made to medication.
Doctor Herbert, iu the "Munchner
Medlslnlaohe Worchenschrlft," describes
ths remarkable results which he ob
tained tn the treatment of serious esses
of pneumonia by means of strong doses
of camphor. He first had occasion to
use It In 190t In a case of double pneu
monia, where the patient was also suf
fering from typhoid fever. He therefore
practiced a subcutaneous injection of
twelve ruble Centimeters of camphorated
oil (M per cent) recently sterilised. The
results obtained on the pulse and respi
ration, aa well as those oa the tempera
ture and general condition, ' Were ex
tremely satisfactory. He renemed this
dose every twelve hours, and he found
after three days the trouble bad disap
peared. Dr. Serbert has since employed the
same treatment In twenty-one cases, one
of which waa extremely serious, since It
aa a question of double complicated
pneumonia tn a woman 73 years old. All
tliese casee recovered. It seems certain
that the camphor produced theee effects,
sine there was no real crisis, the cure
being gradually and slowly eftectsj.

PES MpJNKH, Nv. 12.-f8pcc!al.)-The
state has pending In the district court at
Keokuk a case that la Important to the
state food and daliy department and to
the manufacturers of concentrated stock
foods who have customers In Iowa. The
suit Is being pro-ecuted on behalf of
about thirty manufacturers of stock foods
to break the entire Iowa law. They be
lieve that they will succeed in having the
entire law declared Illegal.
1'ndor thla law It Is necessary for one
selling concentrated feeding stuffs having
medicinal character to pay $1W a year
license fee. For mixed feeding stuffs sold
for feed alone a fee of 10 cents a ton Is
charged. The law was paaaed at the
Instnnco of the farmers, who fetlt tHat
they were being swindled by & great
mnny of tho makers of 'feeding stuffs
Soon after the law was put Into force
an effort was made to have It declared,
unconstitutional, buUtnis failed and most
of the manufacturers have been for sev
eral years paying the license fees. Now
they Insist upon having the law tested
In tho court and say It should be de
clared Improper because It la discriminat

ments on the caso and then granted time
for the attorney genoral and the repre
sentatives of the feeding factories to file

City politics have been enlivened with
the announcement that socialists of Des
Moines will put a full Ucket In the field
next spring for the election of mayor and
commissioners. An organiser and lec
turer will also be secured to work in
this city for the next five months. An
other project of the socialists will be a

local sentiment for socialism, . and this
sentiment needs only crystallisation to
bring results in the spring.

In some parts of the state the discovery
la Just being made that ail raffles and
lotteries bfevery kind are clearly con
trary to the Iowa law,, which are rigid
and extreme upon the aut ject of gambling.
The result is that this year turkey raffles
will be.put under the ban In many places
where heretofore they have not been re
garded aa a species of gambling. The
city officials In some of the cities ot the
state are also just finding out that dice
games and all manner of chanoe taking
are Illegal. In all parts ot the state It is
reported that the laws against gambling
win bo enrorced from this time on even
though the In the past they have been In
part neglected. In Van Buren county re
cently a Urge number of cltisens were
Indicted and fined for gambling and tbe
prevalence of gambling has been ended.

TRAGEDY IN HIGH PRICES

New York's Crowded Kaat
Life In the East Side of New York is
tinged with a deeper gray than usual
these days. And It Is never very cheerful
down there where a million or so human
beings huddle In grimy tenements and
wonder dully what lias become of those
dreams thut lured them from their dis
tant home across the ocean. But now the
Increasing cost of living has sifted down
to the tenements and (he problem bf
bow to keep the wolf from the door has
become almost unsolvable.
The visitor to New York who wanders
through the Bowery and Its euvtrorfs Is
certain to have his attention attracted to
the numerous little eating houses that
are wedged Into all manner of Strang
corners between the gaudy saloona, pawn
shops, moving ploture theaters and the
ubiquitous second-hand clothing stores.
They cater dally to hundreds of thou
sands. For years these eating bouses have dis
pensed a mysterious liquid, euphemisti
cally called coffee, at the modest price
of S cents a cup. For another' cent' a
large, heavy doughnut waa added. For
thousands this repast formed a slender
barrier between them and starvation.
The price of this meal has now been
ralaed t? 4 cents. A cup of coffee alone
costs J cents. It does not sound very ex
orbitant, but behind that eitre cent Is
concealed getfuine tragedy. Family bud
gets ou tho F.aat Hide are baaed on the
cent aa a unit. The art of living la a
very fine science there and the addition
of even a cent to the dally expenses is
often sufficient to upset the whole pre
carloua basis on which a household resta.
The blame dues not lie on the eating
house. Numbers ot them have been
forced to close their doors and few of
them live much better than their custo
mers. One of tbe more prosperous stated
that his trade had fallen 3t) per cent, and
that If conditions did not imporve scores
ot East tHde merchants would be driven
out of business. Pittsburgh Dispatch.

Mr. MacVeagh said that despite his
cordial opinion of the Aldrlch plan as It
now stands, there were some Important
features to be considered. One of these,
as he explained, was a proviulon to pre
vent control by stockholding. Another,
he said, was that to national banks
should be given the same advantages to
conduct a trust company business as Is
enjoyed by concerns under state char
ters. He declared that unless the na
tional banks had the some money- mak
ing advantages as atata banks enJo
they could not hope to survive. '
Secretary MacVeagh closed his address
with a plea that the monetary question
be. kept entirely out ot politics. It is
purely a business question, he said, and
has no place in political economic. He
declared it would be unwise politics for
any political party or faction to embar
rass it by making a partisan issue.
