It requires only a cursory exami
nation of the North Platte fiver
valley to convince one that a rail
road from the city of "2? orfh Platte
to the Wyoming- state line in Scott's
Bluff county would prove a good
investment. There is land enough
under the ditch in that valley now
to furnish almost enough traffic to
support the road. When the ditches
are extended, as they will be, the
line will become profitable. TJie.
produce of the irrigated valley and
the stock-from the great ranges on
each side will keep the road going
so handsomely that it need never
fear a receivership. We believe that
the road will be built in the next
two years, and that the develop
ment in that ribbon of bottom land
across Deuel, Cheyenne and Scott's
Bluff counties will be a forcible re
minder of the boom era in the east
ern part ot the state.
The people of North Platte are
going forward with the plans for
the Western Nebraska fair with
commendable energy. They are
perfecting an organization covering
every county under irrigation in the
western end of the state and expect
to have a fair that will be as at
tractive in many respects as any
ever held in the state. If Colonel
Cody becomes interested, as - he
probably will, there is even a prob
ability that the fair may attain con
siderable celebrity and draw visitors
from a wide range of territory. The
North Platte correspondents who
are speaking of -the new enterprise
as a "rival of the state fair" are
undoubtedly putting the matter in
a wrong light. A western irriga
tion fair ought to intefere in no way
with the fair held annually on the
eastern border of the state. It will
be mainly an irrigation fair, not a
state fair, and as such will com
mand support from the western half
of the state and possibly may hope
to secure some aid from the legis-
ature. But it will be simply an
adjunct to the-state fair, and in no

HEW PS0CESS E0E BEET SUGAR.
A test was made recently at
Grand Island at the Oxnard suga
factory under the supervision ot H.
H. Nicholson of the State universi
ty assisted by a number of other
experts following the directions of
the parties who control the process
in this territory. It is believed
that there is no question about the
success of this new process and it
this be true, coming as it does, fol
lowing the backset of the sugar beet
industry, will give it an impetus
that will result in a very much larg
er acreage in Nebraska and the es
tablishment of many sub-factories
where the raw sugar will be pre
pared and sent to central refineries.
The principle of this new process,
for the separation of the raw sugar
from the beet syrup is accelerated
evaporation, the liquid passing into
a cylinder through which a current
of air is forced, carrying away all
moisture and leaving only the raw
sugar or masse-cuite. Thispart of
the process of manufacture under
the existing system is most expen
sive in the making of refined sugar,
and represents the greater portion of
the cost. To secure this raw sugar
under the present" plans requires a
chemical treatment and a series of
boilings, taking much time and in
curing great expense. The new
process accomplishes the same re
sult at about one-third of the time
and expense of manufacture, mak
ing it a valuable property. This
masse-cuite represents the condition
of all the Dutch beet sugar and a
greater portion of other sugar that
is imported to this country.
A gentleman who has devoted
much time to beet
says half of the larger towns in the
state will put in these factories and
consume the product of from 1,500
to 2.000 acres of beets, thereby
making the raising of beets the

from ihe start, but refrained from
giving anything out tor publication
until the tests were made and they
had something tangible upon
which to base their claims. Ne
