fallen heroes In the world war, were

day, throughout the length and
breadth of this broad land, many of
tnom very elaborate nuairs with the
greatest orators of the day, but at

higher tribute or deeper gratitude- be
paid than was oxprcssod by Post Com

Franklin auditorium for these boy a

who gave their lives that liberty might
live. As for the address on Ameri
canization by the Hon. H. M. Grimes,
well might it be for the country, could
ho have shouted it from the house
tops for all the world to hear and
take heed of the menace of radical
ism that is creeping into our very
homes . Judge Grimes' appeal was a
clarion call for the preservation of
American principles and ideals and
mot witli frequent applause from un
lappreGjativo audience. Post Com

The Keith and Lincoln Counties' Beet
Growers Association, composed of 105 beet
growers of the two counties, respectfully
submit the following to the public:
We ask that the Great Western Beet Sug
ar Co. and the American Beet Sugar Co.,
for which companies we grow beets, give us
a minimum flat price of $12 per ton for our
beets, based on a wholesale price of $9.00
per 100 pounds of sugar, and an additional
$1.50 per ton for beets for each $1.00 per
100 pounds of sugar in excess of $9.00, this
excess to be based upon the average price of
sugar during the months of November to
March inclusive. In making this demand of
tho sugar companies we are acting in co
operation with the National Federation of
Beet Growers which was recently organized
in Denver and at which seven beet pro
ducing states were represented. Wo be
lieve that the sliding scale is just to tho
growers, for certainly the sugar factories
can afford to pay the growers more for beets
when sugar is selling at $15.00 per 100
pounds than when it sells for $10 per 100
pounds, as in both instances the cost of
manufacture is tho same.
In making these demands, we are not
placing ourselves in the position of profit
eers, for we are willing to grow beets for
$12 per ton if the factories will maintain
sugar at a maximuin price of $9.00 per 100
pounds wholesale.
Do you think our position is unfair?

the good manufacturer dresses up tho ex

the works of either fine watch or car must
be built up to a high standard, also.
