—Mayor Glover of Bluff City was In
town Monday. He had just returned
from his trip to tlie sugar beet factory
at Rocky Ford, Colorado, and could
tell an Interesting story of that indus-
try, which lias become of such promi-
nence in the past few years, and which
causes tlie sugar trust sleepless nights.
Beets grown near Arkansas City were
taken out by tlie party for analysis,
and were found to contain over 17 per
cent of sugar. Beets can bo profitably
handled when they contain twelve
per cent, wliile there is big money in
fifteen and sixteen per cent beets. So
much of the sugar content is due to
the handling of tlio crop, that they
pay accordingly for tlie roots, that tlie
grower may lie encouraged to grow
the best. Whether we ever have a
beet sugar factory in tills sect ion of
not, Mr. Glover is of the opinion that
we can grow alfalfa on every foot of
Harper county and that we ought to
doit. It is the best and most profit-
able hay crop ever grown. A good j
field is a permanent source of revenue.
A farmer living near South Haven
sold tills year alfalfa seed for seven
dollars a bushel, and had over ten
bushels per acre. In addition lie iiad
not less that four tons of Day per acre
worth five dollars per ton. Mr. Glover
insists that tlie men who will be rich
arc those who grow tame grasses and
turn them into cash through tlie
medium of cattle and hogs.—Anthony
—Editor Simmons was over near
Blackstone Sunday to visit some of
bis lriends. Mr. Simmons is increas-
ing his newspaper business very rapid-
ly t Do past year. He lias bad to
enlarge Ills paper for the second time
to keep space for Ills advertisers and
"HI soon enlarge to a six-column
quarto. We ha ve been able to accom-
modate him with imposing stones to
meet bis requirements so far. but if
lie keeps on be Mill have to get them
from the quarry.—Bluff City News.
Thanks, Jlro. Grove; but we feel
that we have all t he stones needed in
our business for some.time to come in
the publication of this paper. The
enlargement to six-column quarto was
made last week and should more room
for advertising and news matter be
needed at any future time it will be
provided in the printing of additional

“Stuck” on the Country.
From tlie tone of the following
taken from last week’s Bluff City
News, it would appear that Editor
Grove is very much “stuck” on tlie
We don’t want to leave this part of
Kansas, not just yet—as long as the
flowers keep blooming, potatoes and
string beans keep growing, and we
have friends who are pleased to re-
member that we are pleased to be
remembered—not us. We're fixtures
in ttiis land of peace, plenty and
contentment, and Mr. McCall who
will move the big hardware store
room, “the full of the street” f« r
Frank Baird & Co., couldn't budge us
with all ills tackle.
We hope the ciiange in temperature
since Sunday, which checked the
growth of tlie potatoes and string
beans, nipped tlie blooming flowers
and caused a fellow to stop and think
what had become of his summer's
wages, will produce no serious change
in Bro. Grove’s mind. We would have
him remember that there are at least
a few weeks of beautiful fall weather
yet to come before winter sets in in
earnest, and tliat when it does set in
it will be of short duration and more
tiian likely a mild one. We sincerely
hope tlie ‘‘stuffin’’ lias not been
knocked out of Bro. Grove at one
—Tiie Odd Fellows’ lodge at Man-
chester is preparing for a big time
Saturday night of this week. A ban-
quet will be spread in honor of the
Grand Master, W. II. Williourof By-
ron. who M ill lie present wit li his wife.
There will be work in the initiatory

features. All members of the lodge
and their wives, and all Rebekahs,are
cordially invited. The Manchester
orchestra will be present at the ban-
quet and furnish the best of music.
The ladies are each and all requested
to bring well filled baskets. They

house until the regular lodge session

—It don’t pay to let your house go
without being well painted. Amick
& Green can do you a tine job, on
short notice and at a very reasonable
price. See them about it. 51tf.
—It isn't often that we hoar of a
saloon failing in business, but such
was the case at Jefferson recently
wlien the saloon known as the “Sen-
ate Bar,” run by a man named
Woods, was closed under attachment.
—Mrs. Grace Farnsworth called
Saturday to have her name added to
our subscript loti list for a year. She
Was accompanied by Miss Maude
Llewellyn, tlie efficient teacher in the
primary grade of our city schools.
—Tlie first indication we have Dad
that whiter is approaching was on
Monday morning when we got up and
found ice as thick as a window pane
and a bleek, high wind Wowing from
the north. Sunday was as fine No-
vember day as one couD wish tc see.
The present cropof wheat pasture
lias been the cause of many more
farms being fenced this fail. The
farms in this part of the country are
nearly all under fence now, something
we arc very glad to see. We not ice
also that nearly all t he fencing hauled
out consists of locust posts and gal-
vanized wire, whereas a few years ago
every dollar was made to reach as far
as possible and many farmers bought
cheap oak posts and black wire, both
of which rot in this country in about
four or five years. The relative value
of black wire to galvanized is about
the same as the relative vaincof an
oak post fo locust. It don't pay to
buy cheap fencing material.
—Fred Dietz lias named tiis farm
“Apple Grove Farm” and Dad letter
heads and envelopes printed at this
office ior use in Dis correspondence.
Many people do not seem to know
that they can buy letter heads-and
envelopes at this office in 500 lots
each, nicely printed, for less money
than they pay for tlie same material
in live and ten cent lots at tlie stores,
it not only speaks well for the country
to use printed stationery in corres-
pondence. but if you have exhibited
pride in fixing up your farm it would
show good taste on your part to give
it an appropriate name.
—S. L. McMuilin informs us tliat
he has ordered Page hog wire, thirty
inches high, through Frank Ford, to
fence his entire home farm. Mr. Mc-
Mullin lias had excellent success with
hogs and w hen lie gets his new fenc-
ing up lie will be much better fixed
than ever before to handle them. No
other animal pays as well to grow as
tlie hog when properly fixed to handle
him, and we hope to see others follow
Mr. McMullin s example in fencing
their farms hog tight.
—K. A. Wood, although having
been around a printing office more or
loss for \onrs. lias not yet become
fully accustomed to a genuine print-
ing office towel, and on Tuesday feel-
in that the Journal deserved some-
thing cleaner and better lie went out
and bought a couple of new ones and
presented them to us. They refuse to
stand up In the corner and we don't
know whether to thank him for them
—It appears that tlie insanity of
Alvin Wood, formerly of Gibbon, as
stated in the Journal several months
ago, is permanent. It will be remem-
bered that lie was sent to tlie asylum
at Norman last winter and tliat liis
father afterwards secured Dis release
and took him home to the new
country. The Wakita Herald last
weet; lias tlie following concerning
“Last Meek W. II. Wood sent word
up from Binger, Caddo countv, that
Alvin had started this way and to
watch for him. and if lie came here to
report it at once. On Saturday Alvin
appeared near Gibbon, and be was
taken charge of and brought to town.
Word was sent to Mr. Wood, and
Tuesday Albert came up after him.”
—Cheap Bee?:—We have lots of
cat tie on band and tlie market is too
Iom- to think about shipping. In
order to thin them out we are placing
them on the block a lower prices than
ever before sold in tliis country.
Every family can afford to eat fresh
beef now. Choice round, (if cents or
tour pounds for 25 cents; choice loin
or porterhouse, 81 cents or tDree
pounds lor 25 cents. All other meat
at proportionate prices.

—John Van Vrankin, M'lio works
for G. T. Price at tlie elevator, left a
sample of three different kinds of
apples at this office on Monday from a
a barrel shipped by Dis cousin from
Michigan. They are especially line
fla vor and Mr. Van Vrankin has our
1 banks for them, Tlie freight on the
barrel was about $2. Wc*. would sug-
gest to John’s cousin that lie send
two barrels next time as it takes the
greater part of one barrel togo around
among John's friends.
—It is reported that the new time-
card on the Santa Fe will be issued
soon and will go into effect on Sun-
day. Nov. 29. Agent Pickens informs
| us that the new tariff sheets received
by him are printed for Manchester
instead of "C-a-m-e-h-e-s-t-e-r.” No
doubt tliat when tiie new time-card
goes into effect it will do away Math
