'W That the exhibition of Kline's cinemato graph at the Wonderland is goiug to be the record-breaker was fully assured by the performance last evening. It is de serving and grand beyond description. All who saw it last night, and the audi ence was a large and retiued one, are loud in their praises. It eclipses any thing in tin spectacular line ever been in Detroit. The pictures are put on with wonderful skill and the sub jects are no full of beauty and interest as to hold the audience spell-bound. We regret that lack of space makes it im possible to give a list of the views pre sented and they must be seen to be ap preciated, or even believed.

Clemens ptople, are still working and hoping for their sugar mill. Geo. W. Burt the secretary and treas urer of tlie Alma Sugar Co., informs us that the acreage for the growing of beets for the Alma factory is being contracted for at arupidrate. The delivery of tho Lett seed will bo mado about tho last wee k in April. An article on "Shall I Raiso Sugar Beets:" by Prof. C. D. Smith of the State Agricultural College, in tlie Michi gan Farmer, is of interest at this time. He thinks that 1 eet raising should be confined, perhaps, to farmers near enough to a sugar factory or station so that two loads a day can bo hauled. Tlie thinningof the bei ts should be done within two weeks after the fourth leaf shows, and as a man can thin an acre a week, no nu re should be planted than help can be s cured for thinning, on the basis of a man for each two acres. The thinning can be completed before hay ing. As to the soil. Prof. Smith says: Beets d well on most Michigan soils, tho exceptions being still clays and un digested muck. Sandy loams and friable soils work so much easier that the indus try would better develop lirst on that class of soils." No farmer need hesitate to contract, he says, and adds: While for the largt st crop yield he will need an abundant fertility, he can grow a satis factory crop ou a li id he would other wise devote to c rn or potatoes. The number of farmers who will fail to make good inonfy from growing beets is exceedingly small. The happiest groups of farmers in America today are those raising beet for the factories. Prof. Smith says the cost of raising beets ought not to exceed :. per acre, and rarely dees. The returns, he says, should not fall b low .fls, and may go greatly above th.it sum. Prof. Smith found'fiffy farmers around Bay City whose net profit last year was $ is. Our Advertisers. The following is a li -1 of our advertis ers who have new ads. in this week's issue : J. P.
