CULTIVATION OF THE
Can It be Made a Success in South?
west Vihcunia '.
Au earnest clVorl is being made to
introduce tlio sugar beut in the
Unitod Slates. An attempt un a
vory limited scale bus resulted in a
greater or less degree of success, and
would, if carefully receiving lliu ne?
cessary amount of attention l>e ns
successful und produce as well us in
tbo countries of Franco. Germany,
Austria "Hungary, Russin, Poland, I
Belgium und Holland, wlinra about j
'2,000,00',) acres of land is devoted to j
its culture, aud about 1,485,0011 tons
of sugar are produced annually as
per the report of Hon. John Wilson,
consul at Brussels.
Congress, to encourage the intro?
duction and cultivation of the sugar
beet in tlio United States, has agreed
out of all moneys in the troiiBury, not
otherwise appropriated, to pay to tin*
producer of sugar testing not. less
than ninety degrees by the polati
scope, from beets, sorghu'u, or sugar
cano grown or maple sup produced
in the United States, a bounty of
two cents per pound, and upon such
eugar testing less than ninety de?
grees and not less than eighty de
greoH, a bounty of one and throe
fourth cents per pound.?Sec. 231.
Thus ofiering encouragement to tboHo
wiling by practical oxperiment to
test tho feasibility of such a scheme.
This offer by the government holds
good from .Inly l*t, 181)1,to .Inly 1st,
1005, und gives ample time for nil so
inclined to make a thorough test of
tho matter and thereby prove the
adaptability of our soil and climate
to such production. From the le
port of Mr. Wilson there appears to
be a ,strange similarity evisting in
the soil and climate of Southwest
Virginia and that of the countries in
Europe mentioned as so successful
in tho cultivation of tlio sugar beet.
Not too sandy or too clayey soil is
well adapted to it: The climate of
Southwest Virginia about moots the
It seems that during the early
growing season in April and .May.1
the plant requires but n moderate
degree of moist.uro and heat. In
Juno and .Inly both are necessary.
While in August and September uui
form dry heat is required; showing
ill that respect how well adapted the
climato of this Bection is to its sue
cessful cultivation. Hero any variety
und quality of soil can bo found. Soil
with a sandy, clayey or limestone
The experiment is well worth try?
ing, and can be. dono on a moderate
scale at first, with little coat and ex?
pense. Those wishing to prove the
iufluonce of our soil and climate
upon it can secure all information as
to planting, tho kind of soil necessa?
ry and the fertilizer to be used by
addressing Col. Charles G. Eddy,
Vice President of the N. & \V. Ii. lt..
Will some enterprising farmer
take the matter in hand ?
German capitalists and those who
aro so directly interested in sugar
beet culture, have had representa?
tives making an examination of the
soil and climate of Virginia, and have
come to the conclusion that the conn
try at and about Richlnnds furnishes
tlio necessary facilities, &%, and that
it is better adapted to this industry
than any section they have visited in
tho South, and they havo selected
this locality for tho experiment if
satisfactory arrangements can be
made with tho Clinch Valley Coal
and Iron Co. Ouo thousand acres
will bo planted nnd cultivated in
boots. If their expectations are real?
ized in tho culture of tho plant, then
their operations will bo extended
and a refinery established at Rich
lands, thereby bringing the cultiva?
tion of the plant ami tho moans of
converting it into sugar and refining
same in immediate juxtaposition.?
S. H. Clifford, New Cassel, Wis ,
was troubled with Neuralgia ami
Rheumatism, his stomach was disor?
dered, his liver was affected to an
alarming degree, appetite fell away,
and he was terribly reduced in fiesll
and strength. Three bottles of Elec?
tric Bitters cured him.
Edward Shepherd, Harrishurg, 111.,
had a running sore on his leg of
eight years' standing. Used three
bottles of Flcctric Bitters and seven
boxes of Arnica Salve, and Ills leg is
sound nnd well. .John Speaker, Ca
tawha, O., had five large fever sores
on his leg, doctors said he was in?
curable. One bottle of Electric Rit?
