WORDS BY CAPT. W. H. STRICKLEK.
Julian del Llano, Bill of the Plains.
The moonlight gleams along the stream.
The night winds sigli as ever,
Asa crooning dove sings her song of love ;
Forever, and forever.
Streamlets flow and flow rets grow ;
Send your beauty far and w Ide,
But oh, for me. o'er hill and lea,
Nature's queen of beauty died.
Let beauty die: e'en angels sigh.
Till o'er the silv'ry river.
Yet still with thee, my heart will be,
Forever, and forever.
Will a Sngar Factory Pay?
A short time ago there appeared iu the
columns of the Republican a very strong
appeal to the people to vote bonds to aid
in the establishment of a sugar factory
at Dodge City, signed by "L. K. S."
We were satisfied at the time and have
been since that "L. K. S." as were many
others, was laboring tinder a delusion
with reference to the great financial suc
cess of a sugar factory as they are now
being operated. We were gratified that
there were no immediate steps taken un
til we could have the benefit of the ex
perience of those factories near us. And
if they succeeded this year it would be
strong presumptive evidence that we
would be safe in a like enterprise. And.
now that the season's run has been conii
pleted it is an easy matter for anyone to
know of their success or failure. There
have been a large number of new facto
ries built during the past year, and' made
their run this fall. There are three on
the southern end of the Bock Ifcla-ad
railroad, costing $75,000 each. We have
been able to secure a fuller report frwii
the one at Liberal than any other ia oar
vicinity, and will therefore call. attention
to a few items as we have gathered them.
This mill, as we understand it,, was built
on the Parkinson principle at ai vest of
975,000, and has completed the- season's
run of 700 tons of cane, from wbiefc they
produced three thousand pounds of su
gar, and six thousand gallons, of syrup.
The sugar is worth in the market two and
one-half to three cents per pound, and
the syrup is worth twenty cents per gal
lon. The value of the season's run then
3,000 pounds sugar at 2tj c... .... 75 00
6,000 gal. syrup at 20 c '. 1,200 00
Total product for seaso $1,275 00
This is not very nattering for a 975,000
investment, and yet notbiag has been
said about running expenses which prob
ably foot up at least 92,000. The
amount of sugar and syrup produced,
you see would not pay two per cent, on
the money invested, and say nothing
about running expenses. Nor is there
any complaint made of the construction
of the machinery. The complaint is
made of the cane. In consequence of
the dry weather the cane was poor and
lacked the sugar element.
And notice farther, that it was very
little more profitable to the farmer than
to the manufacturer. This seven hun
dred tons was the product of two thous
and acres of land, which is less than
three tons per acre. All will admit that
in this part of the state this has been a
very dry season. But it has been claim
ed that sorghum is always a success.
But now we have learned that there are
seasons in which sorghum for sugar
making is a failure. With the experi
ences of Liberal, Xess City, Minneola,
and others this year in western Kansas,
who wants to vote bonds for a sugar
plant, at least until we have seen further?
Xow, friend L. K. S. dont get excited
too easily. Keep cool. There will be
plenty of time to vote bonds when there
is a better hope of success. There is no
danger of over-production on this line.

Setting- Trees in the Fall.
X. J. Svfa Pruirle Farmer.
The-prtmripal objection to setting out
trees h the fall is the damage that N
often doa through the winter by thaw
ing and freezing. If, howeer, the work
is to be done, care must be taken to h:nc
the soil well prepared. Plow well, and
harrow until in a good tilth. In dig
ging or prepnring the places for the trees,
be sure there is plenty of room for the
roots, so-that they can be spread out
evenly ami naturally.
The oil should be well loosened up in
the bottom. If manure is to be applied
around rb treesy care should be taken to
incorporate thoroughly with the soil. It
is not a good plan, where it can be
avoided:,, to- have manure come in direct
contnet with the roots of the trees, uu
less it be compost. Keep the roots
moist and see that they are not, or have
not beet, injnred by frost. Spread them
out evenly and fill in with dirt. After
the roots are well covered, tramp down
well,. so-that the soil will come iu close
contact with the roots. Fill up well
around1 the stem of the trees.
A good plan is to make a mound around
the tree, as this will not only aid to pro
tect froua injury by thawing and freez
ings btt be a help iu preventing' mice
from doing injury.
Good drainage must in all cases be
ftfrafohed. Never allow water to stand
arotrm) the roots of any kind of fiuit
plant.. The surest plan of avoiding this
t& provide good drainage iu the fall.
After the ground freezes, a goood mulch
should be put around each tree. Old
straw, bagasse, or corn-fodder, are all
good materials. As this is applied to
keep the soil at as even a temperature as
possible, rather than a a protection, it
will be best not to apply too early. Wait
ODtil the ground freezes hard, and then,
Protection must also be given against
rabbits; and this should be applied e-irly.
generally when the trees are set out
in order to lessen the risk.
A plat should always be made of the
orchard in setting out trees, so that ii
case that labels should get lost there w ill.
be no danger of the names of the varieties
being entirely lost. If the work is care
fully done, the trees mulched in good
season, and properly protected, fall
planting will succeed fully as well a.
spring; but considerable loss is often oc
casioned by carelessness in this work..

Hogs are still being sought after by
farmers, and while the supply is not
equal to the demand, we find that there
are more hogs in the countrj' than peo
ple are aware of. Quite a good many
farmers are now giving their attention to
hogs for breeding Rurposes, and find the
business very profitable. By next fall
Finney county will be fairly well sup
plied with bogs for the market, and we
will not be under the necessity of im
porting either pork or bacon. Thus lit
tle by little our country is becoming self
sustaining. This year we have cut off
the Importation of oats and corn. An
other year will find us eating our own
pork and flour. Garden City Imprint.
