If it was anxiety to quicken a woman's speed when she's putting on iier hat and her impatient husband's waiting for her, making a fellow's turn in a barber shoo come quicker, or adding wings to a messenger boy's legs, there would seem to be something worth thinking over in even a few seconds' improvement. A Oreelpy, Col., dispatch contains the following: "A thrifty young granger today marketed a carload of early po tatoes that netted him $SS0. Another farmer will realize $10,000 for his po tato crop this fall and winter, in view of the abundant yield. Compare Colo rado with drouth-stricken Kansas, Ne braska and other states." And yet Kansas farmers could grow just as many and as good potatoes as Colorado farmers do if they would irrigate. BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY. The growing belief that the United States will shortly be able to produce from beets: the $Pi0.000.000 worth of su gar which her people now annually im port seems to be shared by British Consul Wyndham, who has given the subject close attention and reported upon it to his government. The follow ing is an extract from his report which has Just reached the treasury bureau of statistics: "The production of beet sugar in the United States is rapidly increasing, and in the Chicago consular aistrict mere are four factories in the state of Illi nois, three in Nebraska, and three in Colorado: those in Nebraska and Col orado belong to the American Beet Su gar company, and are at (Irani Junc tion, Rocky Ford, and Sugar City, and when fully complete- wiil employ thou Bands of hands. "Statistics indicate that the United Etates consumes more sugar than any other nation or approximately one quarter of the whole of the world's pro duct. The conditions of soil, climate, and otner advantages are quite as good in the United States, and especially in Colorado, Nebraska, and Illinois for the development of the beet as in any of the countries of Europe or Asia. The world's production and consumption of sugar is now about S.2.70.000 tons per annum, two-thirds of which is produc ed from beet and only one-third from cane, whilst the normal consumption is estimated as increasing at the rate of 200. ix'iO tons yearly. "The success attending the cultiva tion of sugar beet in this district has proved that it may be made a profitable and successful investment. A large factor;-- has been built at Rocky Ford, Col., which cost $1.OO,0OO to build and equ'p. It is proposed to have it ready for the crop of the coining season. To supply it the farmers in the vicinity have contracted to grow S.OoO acres of beets a year for five years. From tests made, they estimate their beets will yield 15 to 18 per cent of sugar. The factory, when running at its full capac- ity, will consume daily 1.000 tons of beets, which It will convert into about 100 tons of refined sugar of the highest purity. The beets reach maturity with a high percentage, and seldom go below 15 per cent; 12 per cent is taken as the basis of buying beets at -the factory. "The beets are grown by the farmers under contract with the factory, and paid for according to the saccharine contents determined by chemical tests made of samples taken from the wag ons at the time of delivery. In addition, the factory controls about 5.000 acres of land. Most of the land will be farmed by tenants, but only a portion of each farm is devoted to beets each year. Growers sell their beets based upon the sugar contents. The tests somewhat resemble the assaying of ore from the mines. Selling upon this basis encour ages better farming and the raising of better beets. It is the only fair way, both to the raiser and the manufac turer. "At Sugar City a farm of 12.000 acres has been cultivated for raising sugar beets, and a sugar factory has been built with a capacity of 500 tons every 24 hours. On the farm 1,000 men and women have been employed during the summer, and this season's crop will be converted into sugar. The establish ment of the sugar factory at this point built the town, which a few years ag consisted of a hut or two and thous ands of prairie dogs. Next year fully 4,000 acres of beets will be in cultiva tion. The output will be increased as rapidly as possible, and every daty tho demand for workmen is increasing. "A general estimate of the cost of construction, cost of operation, and general results to be counted upon, of beet sugar factories in this district as taken from the Rocky Ford plant places the general average of sugar in the beets at 12 per cent. So far as the Arkansas Vallev in Colorado is con cerned, this percentage is being large ly exceeded; the minimum percentage of sugar being about 14 per cent, while the maximum has reached 23 per cent with a coefficient of purity ranging from 80 to SO per cent. In stating these results, reference is especially made to the factory at Rocky Ford, built and worked by the American Beet Suga: company, a New York corporation which works two factories in Califor nia and three in Nebraska, the one at Rocky Ford being their fifth. The ex perts in charge of this last factory -all express surprise at the results of this first campaign, and they have become thoroughly convinced that this vaney (Arkansas Valley, Col.) is the ideal su gar-producer, thanks to its equable cli mate, ample supply of water for irri gation, cheap fuel and limestone, and an unlimited extent of available land for beet culture. It is expected that the same company will erect one or more factories in addition to the one at Rocky Ford, one to be built further east and the other west of Rocky- Ford."

He arose and perceiving a light went toward it. Arriving at a castle gate he knocked. No answer was returned, but he felt an ice cold hand seize him and pull him on. Presently his guide left him. Horror and a chilly terror shook his wnoia frame. The awful stillness which, sur rounded him was still uninterrupted. The knight was fixed to the grouim, wildly staring through the impenetra ble darkness. At length a hollow sound was heard, which seemed at a bi distance. After a long pause it vibrated in his ear a second time. The idei tnai he had nothing more to lose ana tnai every means of effecting an tscape from that residence of horror was cut off entirely, subdued his fear ana prompted him to follow that sound. A few paces on brougnt stone staircase. Having aescenueu nv teps a doleful groan seemed to pro ceed from a room not far distant. Ihe knight advanced slowly ana w un ii utmost circumspection, musing on his perilous situation, when at once he felt the passage obstructed by a door which opened without difficulty. The room to which it led was also a residence of darkness and dismal si lence. The knight was resolved to enter it boldly. Fortunately ne exammeu u. entrance with his foot before he pro ceeded, and found with unspeakable horror that it was bottomless. The hollow, dismal sound again struck his ear from a small distance. He shuddered violently and staggered forward. Everything was now . lonely and silent all around. At length he came to a second staircase, ascended seven steps and then descended as many, when his eyes suddenly beheld a faint glimmer of light which seemed to emerge from below at a great dis tance. Coming nearer, the knight ob served that he was standing on the brink of a deep abyss, from which the glimmer broke forth. An old half rot ten staircase led down. He, however, resolved to risk everything, and pull ing off his shoes to avoid making a sound, began to descend. ' When he came to the eighth step, the hollow sound was again repeated. 1 he knight stopped a moment and then went on with returning courage. When he had reached the middle the light suddenly disappeared and impene trable darkness surrounded him once more. , 1,1 He stopped to consider what could be done, when a stone got loose beneath nit, feet and he rolled down with a thunder ing noise against the door of the vault. "Who disturbs my rest?" the hollow, well known voice exclaimed. Sir Reginald was riveieu iu me in dread expectation. Terror seal-d his lips The door of the vault opened slowly and a pale white figure appeared envel oped in a blaze of red light. It advanced two steps, lifted up one hand in a menac ing manner and disappeared, a he sight of this dreadfvd apparition almost petri fied Sir Reginald on the spot, his senses seemed to forsake him and the blood con gealed within his veins. The knight, having recovered a little the use of his senses, with difficulty re gained the ton of the steps and from thence perceived a passage quite different from the other, and, following it. he ar rived at the foot of a spiral staircase He ascended many steps. At length a part'lion impeded him. He pushed forcibly ae-ainst it with his right hand and snat tered a glass pane into a thousand pieces. "Who is there?" a rough voice ex claimed. At the same time a door open-, ed and a most alarming discourse filled the knight with dismal apprehensions. "Have vou sharpened the knife? one of the talkers asked. "Yes- it's bright and sharp." replied the other voice. "His blood shall flow abund- aWiVh the words the door burst operi. Horror and despair now winged fair Regi nald's steps. He flew down the staircase and had scarcely reached the bottom when he was again seized by the icy cold hand which he felt on his entrance In that abode of terror. The knight's senses seemed leaving him when he came to with a start to rind himself drenched to the skin, clutching his sword with both hands, while his faithful steed was licking his face, trying to make him get up and continue his journey. He had fallen asleep In the forest and his horrid adventures in the haunted cas tle were all a dream. He arose, remounted his horse and in hall an hour was toasting his reet anu drinking hot punch before a roaring fare in the village tavern at B . PRICES AKE TOO LO W. Newsdealers Want to Pay Mora For Morning Papers. New York. Aug. 23. The establishment of a publishers' clearing house was dis cussed at today's session of the conven tion of the National Association of News dealers. Booksellers and Stationers.

A sensational kidnaping occurred yesterday after noon at the residence of Joseph Dick. In Oakland township, this county. While Mrs. James Faris, of Edgar county, se cured possession of one of her three children by her first marriage. Fans, her present husband, pressed a revolver to the head of Lewis Taylor, her for mer husband, and so terrorized the lat ter that he was unable to offer any re sistance. The kidnapers managed to escape with the child. Taylor and his wife were divorced at Paris several months ago and with the three children he has been living with Samuel Hick, the woman's father. Mrs. Taylor recently married Faris and de termined to gam possession of one of the children. Faris and wife left Paris in the morning and drove to the Dick farm. Taylor was called out to the buggy and unsuspectingly came, when he was covered with a weapon by Faris while the woman leaped from the vehicle, ran to where the children were playing and accomplished her purpose. Taylor hurried to an Oakland justice and sought for a warrant for the arrest of the kidnapers, but it was refused un til the magistrate could learn who was the child's legal guardian. Taylor will seek to prosecute Faris and wife in the Kdgar county courts for abduction. RUN ON " HIGH BALLS." Former Controller Says City Expenses Are Paid by Whisky and Water. Chicago, Aug. 23. "Whisky and wa ter run the city of Chicago" is .the as sertion with which W. I. Kerfoot, for mer city controller, today began a dis course that startled the members of the board of review and has kept them thinking ever since. The former city official visited the board rooms to see a member of the board on a personal matter, but soon after his arrival he was talking of the tax situation in a manner that commanded attention. He said: "Chicago will be on her beam ends it Attorney Adair for the Auditorium people wins his suit in the supreme court to restrain the city from appro priating money for any other purpose than the payment of current expenses. "Now, I said whisky and water run the city, and I mean it. Year before last the 2 per cent tax fell $500,000 short of paying the police and fire departments. The rest of the money comes from the licenses and from the revenue of the water office. It is a fact that the city is run on whisky and water. That makes a 'high ball,' and too many 'high balls' are bad for the system. In my opinion too much whisky and water is no better for a city than for a man. "If this tax cajse goes against the city it means that no appropriations may be made for bridges, viaducts, the paving of street intersections and kindred improve ments. "One of the great troubles of the city government is the fact that no admims ...li.m at-a deficient attention to legis lation at Springfield. I have been talking j about the need of a new charter, or, at least, legislation which will ensble Chica- I eo to get out from under the village reg- niimn ,'iMior which ah is working, un- til the public mav think I am crying "Wolf!" 1 am not. and just as sure as taxes, some of these fine mornings Me taxpaving public will wake up to find the wolf at the door. There is no need for more taxes. Chicago pays today more than $;iii,OiO. wo of taxes, but they are not properly distributed. "The money is eaten up and wasted through a multiplicity of taxing bodies and a complication of conflicting govern ments." DEATHS AND FUNERALS. Byron W.
