Estimate of 125,000 Tons, an Increase of 25,000 Over Last Season.1 ? Osmorc Campaign Closed. , t Never was the outlook for a ban ncr beet crop better in Cache County. The fall grinding will commence Sep tember 20, and it is expected thn,t the massive machinery of the Logan and Lcwiston factories will commence a campaign on that dote which will consume about 125,000 tons of bccts. Such b the estimate of the beet1 ton age of the valley. This is an increase of 25,000 tons over last year. The farmers of Cache will receive for this crop nearly $600,000. About 70,000 tons will be taken to the Dcviston plant, which is one of the largest and best plants operated by the Utah Idaho Sugar Company. The balance of the crop of course will be chopped up by the local mill. The sampling of the various fields will commence September 1. Digging will nOt be started until the twelfth, as it is thought enough beets can be delivered from that date to start the run by the 20th. The plan is to grind out the beets as fast as they come in un til October 15, when by contract the growers may deliver as fast and in as large quantities as they .choose. ' All summer a crew has 'been at 1 1 work at both Cache Valley factories. Fifty mien have been employed on the repair and improvement gang at' Lo gan, and about seventy-five for similar purposes at Lcwiston. A large sugar warehouse that will hold 35,000 'bags of sugar is under way at the mill in the west field. Other improvement have been in the way of replacing a number of pieces of machinery. The capacity of the plant has not been materially increased, however. ! The run this season will probably extend till February. At Lewiston six new cottages have been constructed by the sugar com pany this summer for uec by Ahe cam paign help. It is thought there yill be no scarcity of Jabor this fall and that there will be plenty of help fpr the Harvesting of all.theiCro'ps. The osmose ampaign has just qloscd at trie Lcwiston factory.

Emery County, is now engaged in harvesting, the greatest grain .and grass crops ever raised in the county. Grain is both heavy in yield iad su perior in quality, and the period of sending out for flour is gone forpver. The first crop of hay was light; but proved better than anyone expected after the backward spring. In fact the yield in some spots was fully up to normal. The second -crop of alfal fa, however, is most excellent. ,j The crop of alfalfa seed wiy be double of what it -ever was beforun 'lcss a sudden and .severe frost" .slj.ould come within the next ten days, a 'mat ter of improbability at this writing. At Emery some of the seed crop is now so far advanced that cvcn a. frost cannot hurt it., Down there, the,,-par-ticularly choice -alfalfa- seed section of Utal, the seod crop reached nfiarly $50,000 in value two years ago,- and .sojnq of.- the growers rbclic.vcrthat amount will be doubled this year. Throughout the whole county alfalfa seed never looked so well. A sample was brought to the Progress- office this wosk from Wm. G. Peacock's Orangcvillc farm. Nothing better can be shown in the whole country. The stems were loaded with pods and every pod contained nothing but a No. 1 seed. It is now estimated that , the milfalfa seed alphcjoj: this county will reach close to $150,000. The honey crop isiigjit 'because of the backward spring, but fur, tine past two months bees were never busier, and because of this long spell of good honey weather,-the bed mien'.si blasted hopes earlier in the summer .arc now .pretty well aroused and a fairly good crop is anticipated.
