Contracts have been made by the Alvarado factory fr growing 1000 acre-of beets at Lodl, Jau Soaquin Ca Last year's contract were for only half this amount. .

The business men of Sioux Falls have taken the thing up in earnest with troorl prospects pros-pects of scouring a large factfiry in time to work up this year's crop. Another large factory in Michigan has teen cmtracteo for at Alma, about 30 miles west or Saginaw, in Gratiot l.'o. It is proposed to vastly increase the dairy business in that vicinity by utilizing the beet pulp. The Crockett company is making contracts with farmers in Fresno Co, i t!al. to grow beet this season, ihe . ates paid are 4 er ton, provided the freight rates to the factory shall not exceed 7'c, the grower to pay any freight rates in excess of this amount. The Oxoard factory at Huenerna will be pushed to completion this year. The failure of last year's beet crop prevented iu opening. This Reason has been favorable and enough contracts for beets have been made to keep the factory busy through the campaign. The Indiana legislature defeated the leet sugar bounty bill in ltoth branches. The opposition claimed that the bounty would, go to the manufacturer instead of to the farmer, also that It was a scheme to increase in-crease the price of worthless lands in the Kankakee valley.. The AlatDitu sugar factory has already al-ready contracted for over 6000 acres beets in its immediate vicinity. Tbe prospects are that the present season's crop will be the largest ever grown here. There has been a god rainfall. The land is in splendid condition and farmers are busy seeding. Fresno farmers -are organizing for the purpose, of growing beets, and 'a very large acreage will be planted there. Thrse will be. ,hipped to the Crockett factory this, year, and if the experiment is successful, capital Is ready to put in the necessary build- in its and machinery at. Fresno to work them at home. .The Cbino sugar company will plant some experimental patches of beets on alkali land, of which there are large areas in southern California It is .believed that if planted early a crop can be secured before the dry weather brings the alkali to the surface. sur-face. If the experiments are successful success-ful they will make a very large addl- tian to the sugar lands of the state. The Oregon legislature sent a com-mi com-mi tee to visit the first sugar factory in that. state, located at La Grande, northeastern Oregon. The commitee favors the bill allowing farmers a bounty of 81 per too of beets for five years, and It is . probable that such legislation will be enacted at the present session, wearerree to say that we would think It would be good investment.

That's the spirit to insure success. This part of Michigan is peculiarly adapted to the beet crop and there is an unlimited market at hand for the sugar.

GREAT ANTICIPATIONS Of Prosperity by the People of - ''it Grand Junction, Colo. WOULD HELP EFERY ISDUSTKY. Pleasant Conditions that Might Pre-S Pre-S al In Springville Under tke Same Circumstances. A beft sugar factory at Grand Junction Junc-tion is now a certainty, and construction construc-tion work will be commenced in a few weeks. Iu view of the movement to secure this much coveted enterprise for Springville it Is interesting to .note some of the pleasant anticipations anticipa-tions Grand Junction people. are indulging in-dulging in. A leading article io the G ratal Junction Star pictures a very rosy state of affairs for the future. It is not an overdrawn figure, either. Most of the many benefits outlined could very reasonably be expected to accrue to Springville, were a factory to be established here, For the information in-formation of people who are weak in the faith, and for the encouragement of those citizens who have their hearts set upon the enterprise fur this city, the article is reproduced herewith, with acknowledgements to the'fu;: ."While those on the inside have known for three weeks that the building build-ing of a beet sugar factory at this place was an assured act. the. general I public had' misg1.vings. A ''telegram from C. N; Cox,, the. promot ert" last- Thursday, to C. E. Mitchel, conveyed the Informatiomthat all contracts had been let for the building of the, factory, fac-tory, purchase of seed .and operation the first year. The displav of that telegram in the- wludow-of Mitchell's drug store: , qttled' ail doubt i n t h e. riubiic minuV. : . '- what this means. About half a million mil-lion dollars will he -spent, here this summer in construction, employing from IcO to 2(0 in- (i, embracing fill kinds of labor, from the common laborer to the "killed mechanic, the carpenter, the mason, the quarryiuan, the teamster, the. hod carrier, the man wiili a shovel, a trowel and a . luimmer. "About ten million brick will be burned here. And there will be thou s in ds of pen lies of sUine Used, all quarried here. Lumber, cement, lime and sand will be used. As we do not have enough laborers among us to do ibis work, they must come from elsewhere, and houses must be built for them to occupy. Here again all kinds of labor will be employed and all kinds of building material used. "There must be 3500 or more acres of b ets raised this year which will give employment to a large number of farmers and Tarm hands. Very few who come here and spend a season raising beets and there will be a large number of them will ever leave, the valley. That means more farm houses, more permanent settlers and homes. ' SI n the fall some 8250X00 will be paid out for beets and from 125 to 150 skilled men employed in the factory. Tak ir-g into consideration all the collateral improvements which naturally natur-ally follow, nearly a million dollars will be turned loose in the valley this year. Whi doubts that this will gjve drand Junction and the whole valley the biggest kind of a boom? "The fruit crop must not be forgotten. for-gotten. The present propped is for a big crop, which means a large sum of money in addition. The large number num-ber coming here to raise beets will materially assist in rapidly harvesting the fruit crop. Eva pora tors should be secured to save the fruit which is not shipped. "And there will be provender tofat-ten tofat-ten thousands of head of cattle and sheep. The pulp from the factory will attract stock feeders who will drive their stock into the valley this fall to feed. The care of this stock requires labor and will give winter employment to many who would otherwise be idle during that season The stock-feeding feature will become a very important one for land owners of the valley and enable them to utilize land otherwise unprofltable, "Benefits coming from this factory will be continuous. The tirst cost of .building will not be repeated every year, but from $330,000 to $400,000 will be spen t each year for beets and operating op-erating expenses and the factory will be enlarged as fast as the beet crop demands it. "Have you considered what all this really means? Do you realise . what an impetus this will give to all kinds, of business in the valley? It is now past the time for long faces and poke-easy poke-easy ways. Get a hustle oa and be prepared to share in the general prosperity. However doubtful you may have been, it is time to shake off the cobwebs aud open your eyes to real facts. "All who have a hand in securing this factory deserve the highest praise for their faithful and persistent effort. Let us forget all else and give them hearty appreciation of their work."'

A young girl had an amusing experience experi-ence at a ba-ptism the other afternoon. Rlie was occupying the exalted position of sponsor for a little girl baby and. never having served in such a proud capacity before, she was slightly nervous nerv-ous and perplexed, reports the Chicago Chronicle. "What is j'onr name?" demanded the clergyman performing the ceremony. cere-mony. "Mary, sir," she replied at once, and "Mary" was accordingly written in a tiny book and the minister passed on to the next applicant for baptism. Th: worried sponsor listened eagerly to what was demanded of her next neighbor, and to her horror the found that the question was not at all in-t in-t ended to learn the name of the sponsor, but was solelj- concerned with the iiame to be bestowed upon the infant. The agitated godmother hurriedly approached ap-proached the clergyman. Interrupting he ceremony to exclaim: - "0, sir, Mary isn't the baby's name at all. It's mine. I thought you wanted want-ed mine. The baby's name is Rebecca Elizabeth." And an; id the irrepressible laughter cf all assembled the baby was rechris-tened rechris-tened Rebecca Elizabeth.
