SUGAR BEETS IN CALIFORNIA.

He.i? . a sumuuirjr of facts given by
Mr ycr in regard to tlie suar

tarlcs fiom twelve to forty tons per
,. 1 lie best land, with Reed culli-
ulion und a favorable scason.will
jiold rn.m tweuty to tliirty-Uve tons
per acrc.but the crop would be hardly
profitable at a yield of less than twelve
ton per acre- In California the
greatest production from a single acre
of land wa a little more than iorty
tons of beets; but, this is an unusual
yield. The estimated cost of produc
tion per acre ! about 830. In the
present conumon oi me mcuious oi
manufacture, from olk'ht to twrlve
pounds or beets arc required in the
making "f l,ne P"nd t,f sugar; the
quantity varies according to the
greater or lesser richness of the beets
in sugar. The price changes with the
conditions of the markets. About
fuiir years ago beet uug.tr from Ger
many was landed on the wharves or
'ew Yook at the cint of $3.81 per 100
During the last six years such
improvements bavti-been made in the
progress of manufacture that Instead
of converting from 4 to 5 per cent or
the beet into sugar, 12 to 10 per cent
are converted now, and the cost or
production per pound which was onc
from 8 to 12 cents, is now only 2 to 4.
The average cost here In 18011 was
3 cents, and 21,000 acres are used ror
growing sngar beets, which brought
to the farmer an average price or
Following is a dcsciiption of wild
lettuce, as given out by the state agri
cultural cellege: "It lsclosely related
to and very much resembles garden
lettuce. The similarity Is especially
striking if wc compare the two after
the flower stalks have begun to appear.
The plant grows from -seed each year
and is thus an annul. It blooms from
July to October. The height of the
plant is from six Inches in poor soil to
as many feet In rich soil, growing,
generally, a central straight stalk
branching at the top Into spreading,
bare brandies, 'much subdivided, and
bearing Inconspicuous, yellow flowers.
The seeds are small and bear white
s filmy down which serves to waft them

edgeof the leaf and the midrib and
scattered over the lower portion of
the Btetu are soft prickles which give
the plant the name of prickly lettuce.

Wild lettuce, so common through
out Oregon Is in one resoect a most
furious and Interesting plant. In
stedd of its leaves being horizontal to
the earth they are vertical, at right
angles to the customary position,
;But even more strange is the fact
that the leaves always present their
edges north and south, making the
plant a most perfect compass. Only
rone or two other species of plants
.have this peculiarity, but none in so
parked a degree.
