O ONFj time sinco the Mail Tribune publiHlied n sum
iiinry taken from the New York Times Khowitij? the
averatre liriee paid for smrar beets in Europe, where the
growers are paid upon a sliding seale, dependent upon tin;
quantity of sugar contained in beets and the value oi sugar
111 the market. This year the growers are averaging irom
$8 up per ton lor beets.
The Denver Uoelcy Mountain News of June 30 eon
laiiiH the announcement that two new million-dollar beet
sugar factories are td be constructed in the district north
of J)enver, one by a new corporation to be known as the
Northern Sugar company, at Fort Lupton, and one, the
tenth factory of tho Great western bugar company, to be
located at Brighton. The new factories offer farmers a'
minimum price of $(J a ton flat for sugar beets running
from 12 to 17 per cent sugar, with 12l cents increase for
every half per cent of sugar content above 17 per cent.
The Utah-Idaho company is paying $5 per ton mini
mum this year, and announce for next year $5.50 per ton
for 12 to 15 per cent beets, and for each half per cent over
15 per cent an additional 10 cents.
A .$(5 flat rate is paid in Michigan and other states, but
with the fabulous profits at present in the sugar business
the grower is entitled to share in the profits ol the nidus
fry. The Great Western Sugar company in 1!)M paid
$5.7.), as against S5'l.7; paid by the Utah-Idaho. In Wash
inglon the price paid was $5.75. In California as long
ago as 1911, $5.;J() was paid, while this year around $0
will be paid.
According to a summary of the industry by James IT.
Wolf in the Utah Survey, the average price received by the
grower in the United States before i!)12 was $5.;I0 a ton
more than offered by the Utah company this boom
sugar year, when its stock has advanced in value by leaps
The University of Minnesota agricultural experiment
station has issued a bulletin on the cost of producing sugar
beets by F. VPeek, which shows that in Minnesota the
total cost of producing an acre of beets was $'17.05. On the
average normal yield basis of f),82 tons per acre, the cost
per ton was $'1.85. In addition to the profit, the producer
received $7.7-1 per acre as land rent, and $23,111 as pay for
his own labor, a total income over other expenses of $32.50
per acre. Where contract labor was employed the pro
ducer had $15.31 per acre for rent, his own labor, and for
profit. The tops averaged $'l.!0 per acre.
It would seem the part of wisdom to require the TJtah
rdaho company to pay as much for beets grown in the
Rogue Itivcr valley as paid elsewhere with a sliding scale
dependent upon the profits in the manufacture, so that the
local grower would participate in the profits which his
labor helps create.

Of course, the filler is what makes
a cigar. You don't realize it, often
enough, but it's there just the same.
Down inside the snug brown
wrapper,, it lies. It's the heart of the
cigar, ft gives the flavor and fra
grance of the cigar. The wrapper, of
course, is just the surface coating.
Now in the OWL you get only
long leaf filler, running the full length
of the cigar. This enables the factory
to get just the proper blend in every
OWL something which is impos
sible with short cut (scrap) filler.
Moreover, this long leaf filler is clean.
You can unroll an OWL and see
the filler, if you want to. But you
don't have to look to know that the
filler is long leaf. You can tell from
the way it tastes and burns.
Remember that every leaf of this
filler is time -cured and mellowed
before you get it. Its flavor is insured
by the million dollars' worth of leaf
kept in constant reserve for the OWL.
