BEET ANALYSIS. The Folly of Trying to Grow "BigT Beets." The Smaller Product Demonstrated by the Chemist to Contain the Most Purity. Iieeent analysh ranges from 3.4 per cent of sugar, and purity of 45.3 to 15.3 per cent, sucr se, and 85.9 purity, the former results were obtained from a beet w eighing 7 lb. 2 w.., the latter from one of not over one pound in weight. Perhaps no figures could show more forcibly the utter uselessnes of tryii.g to grow "big beets''; they not only contain con-tain less sucrose than a root of desirable desira-ble size but the amount of soil intii'e-dients intii'e-dients extracted is profitably hiyher, the small percentage of sugar contained m them is thus obtained at a greater cost to the soil. Uelow will be found some of the results re-sults from analyses made during the last few days. BEETS FROM T.EIII, UTAH. .... ibrix.i suc-l pur ('0WH- l.ose.iy.

In examining their fields we frequently find a patch of beets with such luxurious leaves and juicy roots that the further application of w ater is seen to lie dearly useless and often actually ac-tually injurious. It must be remeo-beivd remeo-beivd that the strictly growing proce.i.. , of the beets is, to a large extent, suspended sus-pended during the last few weeks of its i fe and that the plant is then busy elaborating and storing up sugar through the office of the leaves. In most cases the soil of the low lands near Lehi contain sufficient moisture mois-ture now to ensure proper vegetation. If 1 he beet shows a crisp, luxuriant foliage fo-liage and tt nder, juicv root, it would be a waste of time and water to irrigate: and, moreover, it would leave the quality qual-ity of the beet and work a positive injury in-jury Considerable caution must be exercised exer-cised then in applying water at this season. Unless signs of drought are very plain do not irrigate. Banner.
