In the United States there are lift'
seven sugar beet factories working
three months each year, grinding,
boiling and squeezing (he sugar out
of nearly forty thousand tons of beets
every working day, but this does not
near All our wants. These facts ought
to be encouraging to beet-growers.
Thorough cultivation is an import
ant factor in producing good sugar
beets. It is a common saying among
Germans that "the sugar must be
hoed into tho beet."
In na time of its life should a su-
gar beet be allowed to stop growing
for if It once becomes stunted It ,is
doubtful whether it will ever make
as good a beet as it would have been
under conditions of continuous
Another way the beet has been Im-
prove.] is by Increasing its sugar con-
tent. This has been done without in
creasing the size of the beet.
If a largely increased yield of boots
is combined with a much higher su-
gar content It is entirely possible to
obtain three times as much sugar per
aire its Is i IT 1 n ' d l !i .ill : e l in; i at

The farmer when buyiug commer-
cial fertilizers to replace the plant
food taken from his soil hv previous
criips, should id':. 'i r :i:-i 'he agri-
cultural value of the fertilizer, not
chemical values on paper nor low
pnres. It is, of course, to the fann-
er's Interest to get the best fertilizer
he can for the least money, which
fact is also paramount with the deal-
er In nine cases out of ten, however,
the dealer handling fertilizers, ends
up by buying those lowest in price,
r> iv dless of the quality arid, when
I-.- ii g these to the farmers who do
not know what constitutes the best

crease his profits, also lr.ay be saving

The dealer or local merchant's suc-
cess depends on the agricultural pro-
ducts of a community, and it is to his
Interests, as well as to the farmer's,
to produce as heavy a yield, of as
good a quality as possible.
The farmer should in.i! • a study of
fertilizers, famlliariz him- If with
what Constitutes the I t valu< aid
when ho demands a fertilizer of this
kind from the dealer, the litter will
be compelled to disregard mere finan-
cial gain and to study the agricultural
value of fertilizers for the benefit of
his customers and buy fertilizers only
from those concerns manufacturing
The present average yield of beets [
per acre in tills country is about 10
tons, and the percentage of sugar ac
tuaily extracted and refined does not
exceed 12, making the average yield
of sugar per acre approximately j.IOO
Yields of more than tons of beats :
per acre are sometimes obtained, and
yields of more than 20 tons are com
From 20 to 25 per cent of the su-
gar in tho beets lias bene reported
so frequently that It Is safe to assume
that an average sugar content uf is
per cent., is within the limits of possi- ;
If an average yield of 20 tons per
acre and an average sugar content
of IS per cent could be reached, we
would have an average yield of 7,209
pounds of sugar per acre.
Clay loams are very satisfactory for
sugar-beet production, provided oth"r
conditions are. favorable; but more
depends upon the physical 'oniiitien
oi the soil antl upon methods of cul-
tivation than upon tin particular
kind or variety of soil ti. ed. The
soil, however, should be we'l supplied
with humus and well drained.

lar analyses do not necessarily liavd
the s. ti e agricultural value, nor Fell
for tho same money, neither are tho
prices comparable as determining
which of the two is the most econom-
ical, unless the quality of tho raw ina-
t' rial u d in each Is known. For in-
stance, the fertilizer made of combi-
nations of rock phosphate, hair, leath-
er, wool clippins, kainlt and filler,
might show as good analysis on paper
as another made of pure animal bone,
dried blood, tankage, nitrate of soda,
sulphate of ammonia and high-grade
potash salts, but the agricultural value
of the latter would be far superior to
that of the former. The price of the
two fertilizers made as suggested
above, would no doubt vary, but in de-
ciding which to buy, the agricultural
value of the latter would far out-
weigh any difference In price, no mat-
ter how large, as upon the agricultural
value of the fertilizer depends the re-
sults that the farmer expects to get
I in the field.

I li . r purchased should be the first and

highest agricultural value which is do-
l' i mined only by tho quality of the
I raw materials used in their manufac-
j ttire will be found the best, not only
lor the farmers, but also for tin deal-
ers. The old axiom: "A satisfied < us-
tomer is the best advertisement," is
especially applicable to the fertilizer
business, as in perhaps 110 other com-
modity does the financial loss or gain
show up as strikingly as In the use of
noting. Witness thts little tale of tho
careful mother to whom came a tiny
son all agog over the acquirement of
new and forbidden knowledge.
"Mother!" cried the child, baby
eyes shining, baby cheeks glowing,
"do you know what 'I'll b« hornswog
"No, dear," said tho mother, sol-
emnly, seizing the opportunity to Im-
plant a lesson. "I'm sure I do not."
"Well, I do." was tho ecstatic an-
swer, the suggested lesson being ut-
terly Ignored. "It means lust tho
same as 'I'll ho gol-darnedl'"
