SUGAR BEETS TO SUCCEED WHEAT.
There is no longer any doubt that sugar
beets will nrove one of the most productive
and profitable crops for South Dakota. A
farmer near Pierre raised twenty acres of
sugar beets this year that yielded twenty
tons to the acre, which are worth, when
manufactured into sugar, 4 per ton. or $80
per acre. These beets were raised without
irrigation. The soil of the Sioux reserva
tion, west of the river, is jwirticulary well
adapted to lect culture, it is said, and next
year will see man- thousands of acres
there planted to beets. Minneapolis Bul

price of wheat for some time past, the

farmers a very convenient "way out" of
the surplus dilemma. And whether the
fluctuations in the productions and prices
for wheat are contingent one upon the
other or not, it is certain that front the
showing made in the paragraph above
quoted, farmers whose lands are adapted
to beet culture will find that crop large
ly more profitable and just as reliable.

In this case the tariff is prohibitive; but

or expedient to continue in force a meas

accomplishes nothing? If the amount of

necessity for the protection it would thu-
afford; but as it is now, compotition nulli-

So far as our Kansas readers are con
cerned a sufficient answer to the above
would le to say that Mr. Miller who
writes from Medicina Lodge is a capitalist,
whoso homo i6 on Twenty-third street in
the heart of tho great city of New York.
He is a nice man, personally, and in a
way bolievos in Kansas, where he holds
groat iKssossions, but yet, and neverthe
less, hois of thnt section and belongs to
that pampered belt, lving Ijotwoen the
Allegheny mountains and the Atlautic,
whose rich manufacturers and mar
chants bolieve that tlie people of the
west axe their legitimate meat, and that
we are only permitted to exist tliat we
may contribute to their purses and com
fort. No, Mr. Miller, tlie Eaoijc is not a free
trade journal. But, we do not advo
cate that kind of protection which
robs Uie west in tlie interest
of the east: that pauperises the western
producer and consumer for tlie benefit
of the rich eastern manufacturer ami hisJ
banker: that gives tlie mortgagor alt that
the mortgagee lias and still leaves the
latter in debt to the former. We believe
in "protection" not "dispoihuioa" under
tlie name of protection, in which fight
we are for the wealth-producing west as
gainst tlie wealth-consuming east.
While we concede that protection has
reduced the price of rails and nails it
lias not couimensurateiy increased the
poce of corn and meat. The trouble
with Mr. Miller's theory is that his east
ern wan is protected at "th expense of a
thousand western man who aru just as
food and juet as deterring as the pet ot

The American Protective Tariff League
has just issued in pamphlet form a com

These railroad magnates have an easy
and graceful way of expressing them
selves on great occasions. President
Oakes, of the Northern Pacific, is cred
ited with saying that he can't see what
particular value the forfeiture bill is to
the company, "except that it establishes
forever the right to lands worth, in the
opinion of experts, fully one billion
dollars." Anj'body but a railroad presi
dent could detect some value in a billion
dollar windfall. Besides, the observa
tion subjects him to the suspicion of be
ing a trille disingenuous. Nineteen mill
ion acres are involved in the bill.
Boston is congratulating itself that
while more electricity is used inside its
limits than in any city in tho United
States, there has never yet been a fatal
accident there. And it claims that no
other city can make tho same showing.
In proportion to size and population
Wichita has more miles of wire in
use for electrical purposes than Boston,
and no fatal accident has occurred here.
There may be other cities with just as
good records. The fact that the Hub
lays claim to exclusive distinction is not
to be taken as prima facie evidence that
it is tho centre of tho earth. Measured
from Wichita as tho centre, the most
that Boston could claim would be that it
is one of the felloes.
MAN'S WONDERFUL BEING.
To tho editor of tho Eagle:
Man comes forth from tho unknown
up into a consciousness of existence
clothed with a material body and having
but a limited means for the acquisition
of knowledge; passes through a limited
duration, called time, out into tho great
unknown and endless existence having
been subjected to the ceaseless conflict
between opposing moral, aud also oppos
ing physical forces.
Mystery encompasses his origin, mys
tery surrounds his abode in the body and
mystery envelopes his exit.
He is, to himself, the most
mysterious thing of which he has cog
nizance. Whence? Wherefore? Whither? are
questions ever before his mind seeking
for a solution of the mysterious origin,
wonderful being and incomprohensive
destiuy. He need not travel far along
the piano of the material exist nee till
he knows that those things which seem
most real are least real; that tho great
realities of life aro beyond the cogni
zance of his bodily senses and that his
limited being is a material body, w th
the effort to minister to its wants, ne
cessities and cnjo3ments, cannot bo the
chief end of his life, but
are seconda y to tho development
and education of tho spirit-man
for tho j)erfoction and stability of his
character, and an increased capacity for
usefulness and enjoyment.
It was doubtless not designed that man
should continue to live in this gross
material body with its limited senses re
tarding his growth in understanding.
The phenomenon, death, is as natural as
the phenomenon, birth, and if evil had
not found a lodgement in his moral
nature it would no doubt have been as
free from terror, and as painless. Timo
is but a segment in the circle of endless
duration. To live is an inestimable
privilege, of which but few have any
Nou Omnis Moriar.
Nothing Like Kansas.
From the Junction City I'nlon.
F. A. Schermerhorn, of Ogden. ex
county clerk, and ono of tho best farmers
of Riley, returned last week from a visit
in New York, Vermont and a number of
other eastern states. His old home was
in New York state, and he went back
with the intention of remaining about
four months, but the pressure was too
great, and he begged to bo excused at
tho expiration of half that time. Mr.
Schermerhorn says that outside of Kan
sas ho saw no corn to speak of except a
little in western Missouri and Iowa. Ho
has 7.000 bushels of old corn on hand,
and says it will touch tho 50 cent notch
before April. The fruit crop east is a
total failure, and tho east is picking up
Ivnusas apples as rapidly as possible. In
fact, agriculturally speaking, those east
ern states are dead. No push, no specu
lation, no hope of anything better than
what they now have. Kansas, notwith
standing the fact that she does not al
ways rai e enough wheat, corn, cattle
and hogs every year to feed a dozen or
so or tnose eastern states, lias so manv
redeeming features that she is
enough for him.

BOOMING INDIAN CORN
In tho Various Cities of England.
At the loc.il fairs and exhibitions that
are now being held, or that liave lately
boon held, in various British cities,
American Indian corn has been put on
show in very attractive ways, and novel
projects have been got up to secure its
introduction as an article of diet for the
use of the British people. There can be
no doubt that if the efforts now being
made to promote tho consumption of In
dian corn there are successful a new and
profitable market for the most important
crop of the United States will be estab
lished, and the prosperity of the millions
of Indian corn raisers in America will be
The state of Nebraska sent a commis
sioner, Charles J. Murphy, to the Edin
burgh exposition of this year as an of
ficial representative of the com inter
ests of that state. Commissioner
Murphy adopted plans and action
in Edinburgh that soon gave promise
of being far more successful thau
those he had been able to put in
practice at the international exposition
in Paris. He then undertook for the
first time on foreign soil to give practical
proofs of tho. value of maize as a food
for mankind. Not only did lie display
before the multitudes at the exhibition
the verdant stalks as they grow in Amer
ican sod; not only did he give lectures
for the edification of his hearers; not
only did he display the corn on the cob
and the corn meal from the mill; not
only did he tell of the hundred ways in
which it may be prepared for the table,
but he also cooked the food in the pres
ence of the public in a great variety of
methods, and served it, at nominal
prices, to all visitors who could be in
duced to try any of his preparations. A
visitor under the commissioner s direc
tion at the Edinburgh exhibition could
munch the corn from the cob, or sup
mush with milk, or enjoy corn dodgers,
or test the taste of popcorn; he could get
baked mush, fried mush, croquettes of j
mush or hasty pudding; lie could get ,

corn boiled or broiled, corn soup, corn
chowder, corn omelet, and popcorn balls.
In short, he ?aw with lus own eyes
that corn could be prepared for his con
sumption in more ways than there are
weeks in tlie year.
The display of wra and of Uie prepar
ation of K, and of the dishes made f roTi
it at tlie exhibition, ai a revelation and
a wonder to tho multitude of onlookers
and consumers. Few of them had pre
viously any knowledge of its Talue as
food for youns: and old, nch and poor.
Very few of them had ever before tasted
any of the preparations of it, or possessed
aay idea of the nounihiug and delecta
ble nature of many of thee preporatioas.
Comatssionor " JItirphy's practical
method of commending Amcneaa la-
dian corn to the British people, so that it
shall become a staple article of food in
their households, ha3 many advantages,
and there need be no doubt that its re
sults will be made manifest as he pur
sues his laboas from one part to another
of the kingdom, as he finds opportunity
at fairs or exhibitions. There is surely a
growing interest here in Indian corn as a
means of supplying the popular demand
for cheap, wholesome, nourishing grain,
and America can furnish it in any
needed quantity at less than one-half tho
price of wheat. The Nebraska commis
sioner holds that when once the people
of the various countries of Europe know
the real worth of Indian corn, which
they have not learned since the discov
ery of America, there will be a prodig
ious demand for it, and tliat this
will not only be advantageous
to tho American corn raiser, but
will also aid in the re-establishment
of the American merchant marine.
Commissioner Murphy's lectures on
this subject are full of interest and infor
mation, especially when he illustrates
them with displays of practical cookery.
In addressing an audience recently he
said that there are five distinct species of
corn, and that at the New Orleans exhi
bition there were seventy-live varieties
from Nebraska. He presented scientific
as well as commercial views of the corn
question, showing both the nutritive
qualities of the grain and the vast
volume of its producrion, the latter
being indicated by the statistics which
tell that the ascertained crop of last vear
in the United States was 2,000,000,000
bushels, onlv about 4 per cent of which
was exported to foreign countres. He
described how beautifully, yet cheaply,
'the people of Europe could live on this
corn, which contains as mnch actual
noiirishmeut as the best wheaten flour,
oatmeal, or any other highly farinaceous
cereal. He told how largely it was con
sumed by tho people of Mexico and the
western states of the American union,
and advieed the people of Europe
to follow their example. He rose to po
etic heights in quoting from Longfellow's
"Hiawatha," the stanza in winch the
"maize fields green and shining." aro
described. He said that one of the ob
jects of his mission abroad was "to en
deavor to introduce the use of corn food
into the armies of Europe, which would
cause the saving of a fabulous amount
of money annually." In truth, the soni
missioner's lecture, from its opening to
its close, threw new glory upon the In
dian corn fields of America. "Yet,"
the commissioner said, "I am no corn
denier or corn grower, have no pecun
iary interest in the grain, and receive no
subsidy from any quarter whatsoever.
I feel that I cannot be of greater service
to the toiling millions of the world than

' Not Very Complimentary.
From tlie Sallna iteimblkuii.
Tho city of Topoka certainly decrves
