THE beet sugar factory down at Lehi, Utah, is turning out sugar at the rate of a ton and a half a day. Now that it has been demonstrated that sugar beets can be raised in Montana, steps should be taken by some enterprising citizen to establish a factory for manufacturing the product. PRESIDENT and Mrs. Cleveland are not likely to find their household ex penses increased by the arrival of little Miss Ruth.

THE old-time joint debate between candidates is becoming more popular c every year. The debates between Gov. Campbell and Maj. McKinley were con- d ducted in a model way. Each handled his arguments with dignity and elo quence, and the audience was fortunate in having the privilege of hearing the issues presented in the best possible e light by those most interested. Recently Gov.Russell and Henry Cabot Lodge met t in joint debate, which was appreciated by the friends in both parties. IN a recent speech Gov. Russell fur nished the subjoined list of prices be fore and after the passage of the Mc Kinley bill, as furnished to him by one of the largest retail dealers on Boston: Gloves cost at retail from 25 to 50 cents a t pair now more than they did before the r McKinley law was enacted. Common lace curtains that cost 373 cents a pair now cost 45 cents. Those that cost $2 now cost $2.40. Plush garments that cost $20 now cost 1 $25. Pearl buttons have advanced from $9 to $14 a gross. Shirt buttons are $1.17 a dozen instead of 75 cents. Common woolen astrakhan cloth costs 2 $4.50 instead of $3.50 a yard.

The' year 1891 will very likely be m- known as the greatest trotting yeis tof many decades to come. That so many phenomenal events in the way of record breaking could follbw in such rapid suo oession was hardly believed possible. I 0 Within the last six weeks we have seen so a series of trotting marks made that may 1 00 not be touched for many years. First of 6 all, the peerless Sunol has taken the mw crown from Maud S., after six years c 1 of unbroken reign. As Mr. Marvin said C at the conclusion of Sunol's great per formance, it will be a long time before c her record of 2:08?: is lowered. But m there are other records quite as wonder. t _ ful. Think of the yearling, Bell Bird, a * ., mere colt, trotting a mile in 2:26C . This 1, performance is rightly regarded as the p most sensational trotting event ever a known. And thenu, too, think of the t I two-year-old Arion trotting a mile in t1 12:14i. Goldsmith Maid reached 2:14 p 0 when she was sixteen years old and held . the record four years. ti The pacers have likewise done glory to themselves. While Johnston's fastest m mile was not equaled, Direct, in his it great race with Hal Pointer at Nashville ti g the other day, won the second heat in It the fastest time ever paced in a race- ai 2:09%.. while the average of the three I heats--2:l0/.--has never been equaled. 8i a All this history is the result of the last * 1 six weeks of work on the turf. Besides, pc 1 any number of horses have lowered their to a records from day to day at the recent o great meetings at Independence and de Stockton. It is said that the close of the ar season will find more than 1,000 horses t who have lowered their record from 2:30 an during the year. at The great increase of popular interest c in trotting has been shown by the enor- on mous attendance at aH meetings, and th, the heavy prices paid for blooded horses. the The price of $100,000, which Mr. Reed mm paid for St. Blaise, seems fabulous ex- to cept to those horsemen who know the en value of the animal, while Mr. Williams' me refusal of $200,000 for Allerton would t seem to a tyro as sufficient evidence of bei insanity. Lo The trotter is peculiarly an American wit product. In England and foreign coun tries attention has been devoted entirely to running until very recently, and it is only within recent years that A very marked progress has been made in the development of the trotters in this net country. Twenty years ago the record Go of Lucille Gold Dust-2:16i4-was re- rai garded as almost the limit of trotting hai speed. The progress since that time ish has been due to the finer study eai of points and breeding. Mr. Bon- lo ner, who is probably the great- ra est authority on trotting in this noun- val try, recently remarked that in his opin- P ion 2:05, if it was ever reached, would be mr the limit of trotting speed. But who cnl can tell what twenty years more may ani bring forth? tr ELECTRICAL NOTES. Coffee-mills for grocery stores are now f run by electricity. The motor is placed at the foot of the stand, and the power re quired is about 110 volts. , A new hand electric gas lighter is made ,e in all particulars like the ordinary kind t except that where the spark is formed a little hood collects the gas and makes ig. nition certain. o The city of Vancouver, B. C., is consider ing the proposition to purchase the electric railway in that city. If the sale is effected, Vancouver will be the first city in British America to own a stieet railway. A Duluth mjn has invented a show case alarm, which consists of spring clips, in Swhich the goods to be displayed are placed. When the articles are removed an electrio r contact is made which rings a bell. 5 r As electric metoes are slightly warm, they r become a harbor fo: insects, which affects the veracity of the Instruments. One of the electric companies found a smart custo- 1 mer had pried his meter open and Intro 1 duced some spiders. SIt is proposed to supply Charlotte, N. C., n r with electric lights, the power to be ob- a I tained from the Catawba river, at the Horse- d shoe bend, some distance from the city. e The river is said to have a great velocity at that point, . A bicycle elevated road, to be operated by electricity, is proposed between Tacoma and Seattle. The distance is thirty-six miles, and it is estimated that it will take c but forty minutes to make the trip, whereas4 by steam it requires an hour and three r quarters. Electrio welding has been found to pro- t Sduce the most satisfactory results in the I manufacture of bicycles, and is extensively used in the large factories for all welding and brazing processes. lThe introduction of electric light, the 1 electric hoist, and compressed air drills for g mning operations, has indefinitely extended a the limitof deep mining. Previous to these a inventions it was not thought advisable to 1i go below 4,000 feet. Brazil's first electric railroad will soon be b in operation in the city of Biahia. It will be a a narrow-gauge passenger road one and a half miles lone. The whole plant and equipment were made in this country, anti shipped a short time ago. It is a sample y installment, and if the electric method of t t trans( ortation shall pleasee the Brazilians a a a much longer road will be built. d a The World's Fair.

Th| h efforts were rewarded by the dilaoyery ibt the company was mailing copies t re decision of the supreme court of Louiiana lid on the question of lotteries and inolosing an express company envelope, by whilh r- money could be sent to the lottery ore ampany's bank. Copiesof these oiruolarl properly marked for identification, were sent to Washington for the inspection of hr. the attorney general. He examined the a evidenoe and declared in a written opinion, ,ie Sled in the postoffoe department, that the matter was unmailable and that the conm he pany had transgresse4 the lottery law. The or addresses of the ciroulars directed to per sons in South Dakota. North Dakota, and Oe Montana were recorded and notices sept to in the postmasters in South Dakota with in 14 structions that when circulars arrived the postmasters were to place on them the date Id and the initiate of his name for identifica tion. The circulars of that state were then gathered and presented to the grand jury at Sioux Falls, which found the indiot st mente. The same process has been eone is through with in North Dakota and Mon le tana, where indictments will be seoured at the next term of the United States court. in It is the undoubted purpose as expressed by an officer of the court, to wear out the lot tery company if possible by tt: end of the e year. The government will have obtained i. fifty indictments against each of the i eleven offlicers of the company, and all the available resources of. the 4 postoffice department will be devoted r to securing a conviction and breaking t up the company. The officers of the court at Sioux Falls are in something of a quan d dary as to the best means to secure the e arrest of the officers of the company. The fees necessarily connected with bringing the lottery people to Sioux Falls would .0 amount to $2,000. The warrants for the arrest were mailed to New Orleans. The controller of the treasury decided that no it fees will be allowed to marshals traveling outside of their district unless they have t the consent of the marshal of the district which they have invaded. So, in this case, ' the arrest will be made by the New Orleans a marshal. The department has officers there to see that he does his duty. By the law passed last winter by congress it is made a a crime to transfer through the mails lottery matter. The crime is punishable either at the place where the letters were mailed or at the point where they are received. It f being practically impossible to convict in Louisiana for this offense the postal de partment decided to bring the case some where in the north. RECORD BREAKERS. A Helena Turnip and the King Potato Raiser. Helena kitchen gardensvie in productive ness with the ranches of the state. William Gelhaus has a seven-pound turnip, which he raised in his yard at 837 Ninth avenue. He has a splendid patch of black winter rad ishes. He pulled a radish out of the rich earth yesterday which was eighteen inches long. C. H. King claims to be the king potato raiser. Mr. King lives in the Yellowstone valley, and says he raised 1,007 bushels of potatoes from one acre this year. The Boze man Chronicle says: "Mr. King will win the prize of $100 offered by the American Agri culturist, if he can subetantiate his claimse, and we have no doubt that he can. Mon tanas in spots, is a great agricultural coan trp.' Secretary Ramsey, of the World's fair commission, yesterday received four varie ties of apples from D. C. Bass, of Stevens ville, Mont. The apples are all fine, large ones, and demonstrate what the soil in the vicinity where they were raised is capable of. Climate for Coasumptives. CHICAGO, Oct. 28.--A public meeting of the American Health Resort association, held here last night, was largely attended. Dr.Peun, of Paris, accredited representative of the French government to find a suita ble climate for consumptives, reported that this had been discovered at Las Cruces, N. M. Dre. Danter, of Toronto; Roberts, of Boston; Eggert, of Santa Fe; Seward, of New York, and Hartley, of California, united in the decision that New Mexicoo western Texas, southeaste:n Colorado' and southwestein Kansas had a health-giving climate possessed by no other territory upon earth. Dr. Andrews, of Detroit, re ported favorably upon Honolulu as a re esOt. A Handsome Office. County Clerk Tooker takes great pride in the handsome appearance of his office. The large and well-lighted room has been in the hands of the frescoers for a week. Every person who enters the room stops to ad mire the artistic workmanship and to ask who did it. The artist is John A. Schnei der, of Helena, who has done some very excellent work of this kind in a number of private residences in the city, but Mr. Tooker thinks the artist has put the very finest specimen of his handiwork on the wells and ceiling of the clerk's office of Lewis and Clarke county. The frescoing in the supreme, United States and district court rooms, county commissioners' and county treasurer's offices is also from Mr. Schneider's brush. A Mighty Army. CaIcAoo, Oct. 28.-At to-day's session of the convention of militiamen it was decided to hold a national encampment at Chicago during the World's fair and that the camp be located within a radius of twenty miles from the exuosition grounds, August 5, 1893, was derided upon as the date of be. ginning the encampment. It was decided that each member of the convention be authorized to exert all honorable means to secure the passage by congress of suitable legislation and appropriations to bold the encampment. Only regular army soldiers and reeularly enlisted national guards will be allowed to participate in theencamD ment. Mikado Wins at I)Dallas. Alex. Lewis telegraphed to S. S.
