In Ne braska 'the beets have to be harvest ed and treated before the frost comes Ten thousand dollars' worth of machinery in California will manufacture as much, sugar as 550,000 worth will in Nebraska. Still Nebraska is doubling her acreage of beets and chicory. There is one chicory farm atO'iSeil, ISTcb., covering 2,500 acres. The old McKiniey bill put 2 cents a pound duty on manufactured chicory and let raw chicovy come in free. This policy brought twenty-seven chic ory fac.toiies from France and Belgium to America. The Wilson bill took off that tariff and the twenty-seven McKiniey jhicory factories closed down a d our money went to Europe for hicory again. .Th new Dingley b 11 puts 2$ cents en manufactured c licory, 1 cent on raw. This t&ri.F will b&ng bdk the 'farrMvies rr"' ; chicory will take the place of much wheat land iu this country. "The free-silver crazs in Kansas and Nebraska is wearing out. The Cleveland hard times, the stopping of factories in the East, and bad crops in the West, drove them to silverism. When they were drown ing they caught hold of anything. "The prosperity which the big crops will bring to the West will make railroads pay dividends, set 80,000 idle railroad men west of the Mississippi to work, make the farmer rich and happy, and kill Bryan's silverism as prosperity once killed Weaver's greenback craze."

' Up in one of the river valleys I n?1 mflny raiIes d'-staut from .San ! DieS0 Cal ftre many water Jalack- i u:.. -i- i t oirus, wmcn weave uuiqus. nests among the tides, says a writer in the Christian 2'i?nes. A specimen of unusual design which I discover- ,3 ext net. long since was bound about i jP&i . t . , . i : with mccshf.G to the uplift tule loutj i'a. ihte most intricate manner, uu the !Ut! basket-shaped re ?fll&&blo was of the desired size. Ihe whole was then roofed with a j second basket-shaped structure, likewise of tub BberP, stretched entire workmansnip was most perfect, and that small canopj top proved very effective in shutting off ths sun's r:iys. In this river valley' I recently made acquaintance with tho mud hen of the grebe family. I had met her before, but never had opportunity to study her, and knowledge of her habits is exceedingly interesting. Here, under the trees on a little laguna's bank, I have watched for hours as she has been swimming, diving, splashing, darting, flutter ing and spattering foam from her lifted wings, aud huddling her young up on the bank to eat grass m the sun. She has no beauty, but those tin- canary-colored mud chickens, tipped with soft clown, are rather pretty, The mud hen's nest is a weedy, reedy, fibrous structure, composed mosth' of dead, gray ends of tales and miscellaneous matter, and is usually placed far out fiefla shore, without anchorage, where it drifts to and fro, cradling its eggs easily. Ft presents to the eye simply the semblance of a mass ct wasting vegetation. One who knows bird,- weTT, and who ka.-- made u study from these same trees on the lagu na's bank, tells me that he has many times waded out to search for a nest and espied it only when sweeping away with his hand what he supposed to bs accumulat ed rubbish of leaves, but that proved the cradle's counterpane, with which the careful mother had shielded her treasure. Here eggs or young, deposited on the bottom, were usuall' half submerged, the water oozing through every intes stico as through a sieve, and no sign of a parent bird near. Re treating to a distance it was often necessary to watch close!;, and through a glass, when presently the mother grebe might be dis covered sailing upEwiftiy, uncover ing the floating cradle and shyly settling down to hreat its contents. WhGn Ihey were evider tly suffi ciently warmed she covered them agaiu carefully with more debris and sailed away as swiftly among the water weeds. The oriole's is one of the daint iest nesls found in California trees, One has been recently built by an asthetic couple in a magnificent fan palm in private grounds, where great care is taken not to frighten the birds away. This pensile, airy thing is of the pale, straw-colored fibres of the palm, and is n grea beauty. Another parent pair have chosen a rolled banana leaf for a resting place. This has been stitch ed tightly across from side to side (something in ball-cover fashion) with palm tbreacb. The sewing implements must have been dex trously handled, the result is so .trig and complete. No more cun ning sight can bo imagined than the heads of the baby birds peering out from the lance-shaped roll of this living nest on the green bana na tree. - . J Electric Sitters. .

Washington, 'June 30. 1S97. The President lias no means of knowing to a certainty that the tariff bill will become a law inside; of a month, but he feels so confi dent that it will that he ha3 prom ised to attend the unveiling of the statue of General John A. Logan, in Luke Front Park, Chicago, on July 22nd, with as many members of the Cablhtt as can make- it coa- euiWH' to Rccon?nanv 41 U. A.H J to provide AgiwrfsV contingeneies, Presufeat MclCmlef stipulated that iiis prorflis shoold noc be considered bidding if the I tariff bil! were ot disposed ofinj unwivr mm 10 YMCt3 S0 on the date specified. Senator Chandler, who made a record as Secretary of the Navy, was- asked what he thought of the English statement that tho an nexation of Hawaii would make it necessary for us to largely increase our navy. He replied: "I So not agree with the opinion that we must largely increase our naval force because we are about to annex Hawaii. The future uower of the United States will not lie in its navy. We will be great because we have unlimited and .easily con vertible repourcos. If we want a navy, we can get one. If a war should come, in which Italy, for instance, was not concerned, we could buy tho whole Italian navy in 24 hours. There will be no larger naval appropriations coin cident with, the ratification of the Hawaiian treaty, but when we want a navy we can get it.' The ultimate ratification of the treaty for the annexation of Hawaii is regarded as so certain, notwith standing the talk of tha handful of Democratic Senators who are op poeed to it, that no effort will be mado to push it to a vote at this session of Congiesa. The Presi dent is perfectly satisfied to have it go over to the regular session, as he regards the sending of the treaty to the Senate as ail that was neces sary to notify the world of our in tention to annex the island. Senator Hanna ha3 grown very tired of denying the story originat ed by some one in the employ of a New York paper, that the wages of miners in his emploj', in Penn sj'lvania, had been cut to the lowest Drice ever paid in tho Pitts burg district 54 cents a ton. Speaking on the subject, Senator Hanna said: "There has bsen a reduction of wages, but not those of the men employed by any of the companies in which I am interest ed. I was asked to join and refused ! to'do so. My men are still receiv-J mg uu cents a ton. ur coarse it would be expecting entirely too much to ask that this very positive denial should operate to keep the original lie out of Democratic papers. General Stewart L. Woodford, the new U. S. Minister to Spain, has many admirers among the Repub licans who attended the National Convention, which nominated Hayes and Wheeler. After Haves was nominated, General "Wheeler 'heard that the Indiana delegation had decided to support him for the Vice-Presidency. According to Col. W. R. Hoi lo way, who was there, and who is now in Washington, this is what Gen. Woodford said to his Indiana friends: "No, no, gen tlemen; don't think of that, Wm. A. Wheeler is a stronger" man in the state of New York than I am, and I beg that -you will give him Indiana's thirty votes. What we need and must have to elect Gov. Hayes, is "New York's electoral vote. Don't consider me for one moment, but vote for my friend, Wheeler, and assist us to carry the Empire slate for -tho nominees of this convention." The result is history. While ths Republicans enjoyed the accusations and counter accusa tions hurled by Democratic Sen ators against each other, they would have much-preferred that the time so wasted had been put in on the turi&'bill. Everybody knows how wide apart the Democratic Senators are on the tariff aud many other things, bur the country is impatient ly waking for the tariff biil to be-r come a law. Absolutely Pure.

Little Sporty; Here is a letter received a few days ago by a 6rm dealing in bicy cles: "Deer surz: I live on my farm near Hamilton, Kansas, am 57 years old and just a little sporta. My neffew in Indiana bot hisself a new bisicle and sent me hi3 old ond by frate, and ive learned to ride sume. Its a pile of fun, but my bisicle jolts considerable. A feller came along yesterd' with a bisicle that had hollow injun robber tires stuffed with wind. He leet me try hissen and mi. it run like a kushin! He told me you sell injun robbe just the same a3 hissen. How much will it be to fix mine tip like hissen? Mine is all iron wheels. Do you punch the hollow hole threw the injun robber, or will I have to do it myself? How do you stick the ends together after yotl got it done? If your injun robber js ready holler, will it come any cheaper empty? I can get all the wind I want out hero in Kansas free. "P. S. How much do yotl charge for the doodad you stuff ths vyind into tho robber with and where do you start?" Chicago Chronicle. Mill at Pearco. The Commonwealth mill at Pearcd is rapidly nearing completion and when finished will be the most com plete in-the Territory. The capacity is 60 ton daily but should the owners desire to increase the output the capacity can be doub led by adding the necessary machinery. That such may be the intention ot the company is given credence by the fact that the boilers and engine now erected are of sufficient horsepower to furnish motive power for double the present capacity ot the mill. Tha boiler3 and rock breakers are already up and under cover and their im mensity is of formidable appearance. The ore of tho Commonwealth is free milling, no lead or base being noticeable, but as some of the rock carries sulphurets it is probable a roasting apparatus will doubtless soon be provided. The mill is expected to be in readiness and running order within two months. Prospector. Every reader should see what the publishers of Judge 'are doing in their Prize Puzzle Department.
