A boat the lit of Ootober 1 made H
tr?p to Norfolk, Neb., to study the
sugar-beet industry. I visited the
i trge factory there, which has been
in successful operation I >r ?-ight
years. This factory emplovs ab ut
?50 hands, and pays out there more
than $150,000 during the seasons,
which run from the 1st of Oetob?! to
last of December. Tue faatory has
no dlffleoltj id getting all the beets
it can work up during the season.
The ?State ot Nebraska paid a small
bounty to the manfacturcrs of
sugar from beets until two years ago,
w.iui it was discontinued,
I went into the country around
Norfcllt, and talked with the farmers
as they weie pulling and talked with

would get di^ati-tied and stop grow?

ltp.se he would go at it agaiu.
Farmers grow beets as far as eight
miles fiom the factory and deliver
thtm by wagon. Bu tor forty m It's
they are shipped by rail. The freight
charges are from 1 mile to 30 miles,
30 cents per toe; from 30 miles to 15

This does not include cost of haul?

the above cost to several dollars less
The percentage of sugar in the beets
varies from 10 to 14 per cent.
Some of the farmers get as high as
$5 per ton for their beets (the price
is governed by the per cent, of sugar
in the beets).
There are three (3) sugar-beet fae?
tones in Nebraska.
The cost of irrigation in growing
sugar beets in Arizona, New Mexico,
and Colorado is an average of $12 BO
per acre for water rights, and a land
rental of $2 00 per acre. In Utah the
rental is $5 per acre. In that part of
California where sugar beets are
grown, entire dependence is upon
sub-irrigation. In Nebraska, the
Dakotas, Minnesota, Michigan, and
Illinois large silos are built to protect
the beets until wanted at the factory.
The bi-product is more expensive to
keep, and stock fattened upon it are
hundreds of miles from the great
markets. Notwithstanding these
charges and conditions the sugar-beet
crops are the most profitable and
satisfactory that the western farmer
The advantages of growing beets
in Virginia over any of these States
are many. Our land is cheaper and
better adapted to growing sugar
beets ; it responds qnickly to fertili
z it ion ; it is easier cultivated. Our
olimate cannot be excelled anywhere
for growing the beet to perfection.
Oar seasons are supplied with mois
ture; there is no danger from
droughts or excessive cold. Irriga?
tion is not needed. Water and rail
road transportation are convenient.
Stock fattened on the bi-product of
the factory would be near the best
markets of this country.
Oje of the greatest advantages in
favor of growing sugar beets in Vir?
ginia is our cheap labor ; with this
beets can be grown in this State,
including all necessary work, except
hauling, counting $4 per acre for
commercial fertilizers, for $17 per
To encourage the introduction of
this important industry,I amlinf ormed

farmers the first year.and also supply
expert instruction in growing the
On good land, properly fertilized
and cultivated, we can grow in Vir
ginia from 12 to 20 tons of beets per
acre, running from 12 to 15 per cent,
sugar, making $48 and over per acre,
leaving a profit to the farmer of $.31
and upwards per acre, from which the
cost of hauling must be deducted.
The cost of hauling would be govern?
ed by the distance.
From experiments made from beets
grown in many counties in this State
l?verai years ago as a test, it ii evi?
dent that Virginia ean grow beets
higher in sugar than are grown now
in Nebraska. 7he analysis from
beets grown in seme counties ran as
high as 17 per cent in sugar, and
some went as high as even 90 per

p?riment? show plainly that Virginia
has a la irer area adapted to growing
sugar beets of high ??uality than an)
State in the Union. A? an entire
State, there is none in the Union bet?
ter adapted to growing sugar beets
of higher average riebvss in Migar
than right here in Virginia. There
are other advantages in mvor of Vir?
ginia. <>ur climate is better suited
tor the safe maturing of the beets.
Tbe warm days and cool nights in
October forces the rapid dtTtlopmtBl
of the sugar in the beets. The long
season does not hurry our farmers to
take tbe beets out of the ground and
bury them, as ".ted in the
West. We have no mddaa severe
I in the fall of the \? ar. ' ' ir
mild falls and winters will allow the
factories io run as long as they have
beets to work upon.
Sugar-beet growing should be done
by our farmer? in connection with
their other farm crops. The same
ground should not be put in beets
more than two years in succ
the two heavy dressings the liDd
receives from fertilising the beets
will grow the largest crop of grain or
grass thereafter the land ever pro?
duced before. Clover or peas should
be grown on tbe land before beet? ar.
put in tbe same laud again. Beets
are not as hard on the land as the
Tbe farmer in selling beets is sell?
ing large quantities of water.
Virginia can easily grow enough
beets for half a dozen factories.
Sixty per cent, of tbe sugar consumed
in this country is made from the
sugar beet. Tbe cultivation of tbe
beet requires but little new machin?
ery. Tbe seed can be sown by a
Bickford ft Huffman 8 inch wheat
drill, closing every other tube. The
rows in Nebraska are planted from
14 to 18 inches apart ; tbe beets are
thinned to from 8 to 10 inches apart
in the row.
The farmers in Nebraska use a
light spike disc cultivator for the first
cultivation, then a bnll tongne or
norrow shovel; the last cultivation a
s ?ovel that will throw the dirt to the
beets so as to keep them covered. A
puller is used to loosen the beets in
the ground. This implement costs
$10- Agiod blacksmith can make
one for half this amount.
The residium or pulp is used by
some of the farmers, who feed it to
all kinds ef stock, but it is especially
valuable for calves, cows, cattle and
sheep. I visited a feeder who was
feeding 1,400 head of cattle on beet
pulp and straw. He has beeu feed
ing it for five years; he feeds the cat?
tle all the pulp they will eat, and
they have access to wheat straw
These cattle are fed in the open lots,
and have no shelter during the win?
ter. They gain some flesh during the
winter under the exposure of bard
winter weather in Nebraska, and,
with the addition of two pounds of
meal upon the pulp, the feeder can
make beef of bis cattle.
The pulp in Virginia would be a
valuable feed, and our farmers would
appreciate it. In growing beets it
would enable them to keep stock,
and consume all the forage grown on
tbe farm, which is highly essential
in improving tbe land,as well as more
If our farmers within reach of
Frederickibure, either by road
or railroad, will grow the beets, I be?
lieve there is a willingness on tbe
part of capitalists to build the fac?
A fair trial will convince those
who will grow the beets that it is a
much more profitable crop than any
other now grown. It is a ready
cash crop; leaves the land in a fine
condition for seeding down to grass,
and enables the farmer to keep more
stock at greater profit,
A creamery could be profitably
operated in tbe same neighborhood
with a beet factory, and more cattle
and sheep feeding and pork raising
by nsing tbe pnlp from the factory.
This is ajgolden opportunity, I be?
lieve, and I tru*t our farmers will
avail themselves of it and secure tbe
erection of a factory at Fredericks
burg, and show to tbe world that
Virginia has advantages over other
States in growing sugar beets at less
cost and more profit.

in France, nor Charles, iu Breda

and finally he deliberately and dis?
honestly granted awav the whole of
the real domains of Virginia to two
of his bbipqu'ous favorites, Culpeper
It is true that when, in bis wretch,
ed little court cirole at B-eda, he re?
ceived the invitation of Virginia, he
showed lome meretricioui gratitude,
which manifested itself in an ab?
surdity perhaps as great as any he
ever committed. He directed a new
royal seal to be prepared with the in?
scription "Eq dat Virginia qaintam''

It ii true that Virginia, even be?
fore the ?Involution, had gained the
title of "The Old Dominion." But
she did not gain it from any of the
sources generally assigned for it.
She gained it from all that had oc?
curred before the restoration of
Charles the Second. It is not trne
that her people prior to that event
had again invited Charles to the
throne, and that they flung abroad

he was re-seated as King. History
