Trown fast to its under jaw.
The pig eats and drinks indepen

)f the pig is that it takes food but
mce or twico a month, and is en
tirely dependent on tho hog for
knowing when and how to feed.
The pig receives food by being
sii peiided into a trough, out of which
thi- hog also feeds. The hog will

Kansas Sugar In 1890.
Prof. E. B. Cowgill, the well
known Kansas sugar man, or one
w no is authority on sugar-making in
Kansas as well as elsewhere, arrived
yesterday morning and will be de
tained in the city a Iday or two look
ing after business matters. Con
cerning the sugar 'making business he
stated last evening that this year's
experience was most gratifying. It
wps considered and estimated one
year ago that the manufacture of su
gar from cane and beets raisod in
Kansas had passed beyond the experi
mental stage-, and this year only
confirms that opinion. The compa
nies in the state going at the biiii
ness iii a business-like manner in
every respect arc getting along quite
well and are making money. 1 here
is no overproductioi Taature to cause
an alarm in tlu siugar-making busi
ness, and before this point coahl be
reached it is thought i,50J to 2,000
plants could be in operation iii Kan--as.
T!i8 business this year has f.icocl a
sight cane crop, or much lighter than
last year owing to the Jruuth. This,
however, has not in the least impair
ed the quality of the carjo with ref
erence to its? sugar-making properties
Tho Medicine Lodge Victory, as a
sample, show3 147 pounds of sugar
per ton of cane, rhile the total out
put of this factory will double the
average Louisiana factory for the last
The Kansas factories have made
arrangements for selling total output
in New Orleans and at a price cent
below quotations in Ntvr York City
on day of sale. The Migar from
sorghum cane coming in the markfc
so early has the advantage of the best
prices,. This is no small featuro in
taking into account the Kansas fac
tories. The Medicine Lodge factory is
now handling 200 tons per day, but
is now making arrangements to dou
ble . the capacity for next year.

Prof. CowotII says the time has
come when capital will not be afraid
forgo into tke smrar business. smc
t has been established that the busi
ness is a success. In order- to insure
returns on a business basic hm .
(a company must hare capital. By

the Kansas "City Star says: A

six cities in Kansas, whose avonie
increase witllin the last decade has
been 152 per cent. The largest
rato of increase as in Pittsburg,
which has expanded frOm "a village
of 924 in lSbO. to a city of 6,0(J m
1S90, showing a percentage growth
of 9S2.12. Arkansas City, which
had 1012 people ten years ago, 7312
now, showing a rate of increase of
over i-'jperceat. loneka lias more

of over 300 per cent in the"'last de

Tho prosperity of these social and
