Fotnta In Groirtnpr Them tinder Ir­
In his interesting report on the prog­
ress of the beet sngar industry in the
United Str.tes in 1S98 Special Agent
Charles F. Snylorsaya: I bslieve it is
maintained in Europe that beets cannot
be successfully grown under irrigation
—at least, it is serionsly questioned,
but the experience at Lehi, Utah and
Eddy, N. ML, has forever exploded that
theory. There is a large amount of
land available for the raising of sugar
beets by irrigation in Colorado, Utah,
Montana, Wyoming, western Nebraska
nnd other states having like conditions.
There are a few things that must yet
be learned about the application of ir­
rigation to growing sugar beets, but
the obstacles are fast being overcome.
Irrigation is especially adapted to rais­
ing sugar beets where the particular
region is favored with rainfall at plant­
ing time. Experience has demonstrated
that irrigation should be held off as
long as possible and applied as little as
possible. Water should not be applied
by irrigation until the natural supply
has failed, and even then the grower
must be careful not to apply too much,
which is as disastrous as not enough.
I have learned by talking with those
experienced in the application of water
by irrigation that the land tends to dry
out quickly after being irrigated and
to become packed hence cultivation
must follow as soon as practicable after
irrigation. It has been noticed that the
beet has a tendency to send down its
lap root deep into the soil, and especial­
ly is this true in the earlier stages, if
the necessities of the case demand it,
in order to procure moisture. But if the
water is applied too lavishly in the be­
ginning this tehdency of the beet is ar­
rested and it shows a disposition to rely
on the artificial supply of moisture near
the surface rather than to seek its own
at greater depths. Thus irrigation may
interfere with a natural tendency that
is desirable in the growth and maturity
of the beet. The effect will be under
these circumstances, that the taproot
will divide and the beets become bunchy
and sprangled, assuming a form entire­
ly undesirable. The beet may show a
tendency to droop its leaves slightly
and to become lighter in color, but this
does not indicate that irrigation is
needed. Irrigation must not be resorted
to until necessity demands it. Wilting
of the leaves or curling up of the same
does not necessarily Indicate need of ir­
rigation. If the beet recovers its vigor
in the evening, it is a sufficient indica­
tion that it is getting along all right.
When it begins to suffer from drought,
the tendency will be to droop and get
darker in color, and it will not appa­
rently recover in vigor with the ap­
proach of the cool evening. This is the
time to consider the question of apply­
ing irrigation.
In regions where the beets are started
in the spring witb moisture from rain­
fall it is the aim of the grower to pro­
duce his crop with four or five irriga­
tions of the beets. After they begin to
ripen all irrigation mast cease, for the
same reason that makes it nndesirable
to have rainfall after the beets are ripe.
To Preserve Wagon Wheels.
Farm, Field and Fireside tells of a
method of preventing wagon wheels
from shrinking in dry weather, which
a North Carolina man says avoids the
necessity of having tires reset and in
this way soon saves itself in blacksmith
bills besides preserving the wagon.
The trough, shown in the illustra­
tion, is made of sheet iron. In it he
puts a supply of pine tar, which is
heated over afire to a boiling heat. The
wheel is then jacked up, the trough
placed under it and the wheel lowered
so that the tar will cover the felloes.
The wheel is then slowly turned in the
tar, which fills every nick and crevice
in the wood and between the wood and
tire, thus making it impervious to
moisture or air. With a brush the hub
is also treated with a coat of tar, and
if the wagon is old the spokes also in
lieu of paint.
One Thing and Another.
Montana men are said to have been
investigating the beet pnlp output of
New York and considering the matter
of bringing 60,000 head of sheep and
lambs east and fattening them on this
palp with a view to having them nearer
the ready market when the feeding is
Professor Parrot of Kansas suggests
tfhat late plowing in the fall, by which
the pupal cases of the adalts are broken
tip, will doubtless materially aid in re­
ducing the number of wire worms in
corn, of which there have been com­
plaints in the past few years.
In corn cultivation at the Michigan
station frequent shallow cultivation
gave the best results.
According to Orange Judd Farmer,
returns from all districts show that on
Jane 1 there was promise of an apple
crop ranging from moderate to large in
all the states between the Allaghuny
and the Bocky mountains.
Bye is said to make a good cover
crop for orchards where nitrogenous
fertilizer is not desired. It is also .use­
ful on very light, sandy, sbils, and on
very bard, lumpy soils, where other
crops do not easily grow.....
Stated at the War Department
That the Correspondents'
Round Robin
Will Receive No Attention What­
ever, Nor Will Protest Be
Sent to Otis.
News That Is Considered Enconr
aging Received From Com­
WASHINGTON, July 19.—It was stated
at the war department that no atten­
tion whatever would be paid to the
"round robin" of the Manila correspond­
ents. The protest was not sent to Gen­
eral Otis and it is said will not be, and
General Otis will not be called upon for
an explanation. In addition to this it
was intimated that very encouraging
news had been received from the Phil­
ippines and that the situation was much
better than has generally been believed.
Civil Government Sprotidincr in tho Phil*
ippincs in Splto of Aguinaldo*
WASHINGTON. July 19.—The advices
which the president received from Ma­
nila Monday, and which have giveu so
much comfort and encouragement to
the members of the cabinet to whom
they were communicated, had a bear­
ing rather on the political than on the
military situation, although there is
naturally a very direct connection be-,
tween the two at this time. The com­
mission. or at least so much of it as re­
mains at Manila since the departure of
President Schurman and Admiral
Dewey, has been unrelaxing in the ef­
fort to restore the confidence of the na­
tives and aid military operations by in­
ducing defections among Aguinaldo's
followers. Some crocrress ban been
made more, it is said, than
the public is acquainted with, for not
only have the United States authorities
been able to secure the unqualified ad­
hesion of the natives of the more im­
portant islands outside of Luzon, in the
Philippine group, but even in that
island they have steadily encroached
on what was regarded as purely insur­
gent territory, and are arranging for
the establishment of full civil govern­
ments in some of the provinces of the
island wherein Aguinaldo has been
strongest. Because this is to be accom­
plished by peaceful means, and with
the full assent of the inhabitants of the
provinces, the administration naturally
felt that it had cause for gratification.
Cabluut Mooting Was Long.
The cabinet meeting was longer than
usual, and tho members, after it ad­
journed were more reticent than usual.
Secretaries Gage, Wilson, Alger and
Attorney General Griggs are out of the
city. It was was admitted that tlier
was some discussion of the "roun
robin" sent by the American newspaper
correspondents from Manila, via Hon^
Kong, but all information regarding
the character of the discussion or the
nature of tho decision, if one was
reached, was refused. A cablo from
Colonel Denby, a member of tho Phil­
ippine commission, was read. Ii showed
a fairly good state of affairs, one of the
officers said, but it did not say that
peace negotiations with Aguinaldo were
in progress.
Later it was ascertained that the de­
cision was reached to allow tho "round
robin" matter to drop. At an informal
conference held at the White House,
the subject, was thoroughly discussed
and such a policy agreed upon. This,
it is stated, was confirmed at tile cabi­
net meeting. Officially, tho matter
will bo ignored and General Otis will
be allowed to treat it as he may deem

A portion of the full paid and non-assessable capital stock of tlic Boston & Texas
topper Company is offered for sale at Five Dollars per share (par $10 for Treasury
purposes), and is recommended as a safe and highly promising investment.
The company controls twelve thousand acres of rich copper land in North Texas
which is also valuable for farming and town site purposes. The tract is some 10
miles long and about three miles wide. It is equivalent in size to five hundred ordi­
nary mining claims.
The property has been developed sufficiently to begin producing at once, large
amounts of the richest copper ore (40 to 70 per cent.) taken out and marketed, and
inexhaustible quantities of copper marl and clay running from 3 to 15 per cent,
copper found. (Calumet and Hecla and other great dividend payers are working on
1 to 3 per cent, ore.)
The property is within 12 miles of a railroad and fuel and water are available.
The ores and marl are on the surface and a few feet down, and can be mined and
converted into copper cheaper than any other deposits in America. Copper will be
produced on the ground and a plant of moderate cost will treat 300 to 500 tons of
ore and material per day, and according to engineers' estimates earn $3,000 to $5,000
per day net, with copper at 15 cts per pound. It is now 18 cts. per pound.
The property has a historical reputation and a record in the State Geological
Reports. It has been examined and reported upou by the highest engineering, geo­
logical and expert authorities, and its merit and value are established beyond ail
question. It is not an experiment, nor its value speculative, they are proven and
From Report of Prof. Wm. DeRyee, former State Chemist of Texas.
Such numerous outcrops of copper ore have been traced over tlic summit and
aides of those hills that out of 12,000 acres of land which the company own, hardly
a 160 acre tract should be found without ore upon the surface.
A cross-cut to the depth of 15 feet was made upon the Isbell lead, and ten
hours' work resulted in the raising of 6,000 lbs. of rich copper ore, averaging about
60 per cent, of copper. (Worth $360, net.)
It is easily smelted and the strata in which it is found can also be more econom­
ically excavated than other in which copper ores occur.''
From Report of Prof. W. F. Cummins, former Geologist of Texas.
In order that I might see the condition of this lode after this amount
of work had been done, I employed a few hands and cleaned out the tunnels
when I fonnd a lode of copper. This is the disulpliate of copper anil wiil yield as
high as 70 per cent, of copper. I drove the tunnel twenty feet further into the
hill, following the lode. When I had gone about twelve feet I struck another
lode of copper eighteen inches east and six inches below the second lode. In three
feet more we struck another lode below the second lode. Immediately below the
lower sandstone is a stratum of cupriferous marl schists extending the entire width
of the tunnel, say four feet, and is probably much wider. This marl will yield
about 15 per cent, of copper."
From Report of Prof. Gustave Westman, Mining Engineer.
"I beg to express my entire satisfaction with and confidence in the report
made by Prof. W. F. Cummins.
I only had to remove one foot of earth from the surface on the three spots
already mentioned in order to find large deposits bedded into the clay. After
washing, this clay was found to contain 15 per cent, of copper ore of same value as
above. These ores could of course be taken out and made available at a relatively
small expense.

HOK. EVERY H. LOW, President, and others, Boston, Mass.: 'Gentlemen:—There is abundant evidence of rich copper deposits, not only at the mines already
•pened, but at various other parts of the property, and it is my opinion that this will prove to be one of the exceptionally rich copper-bearing fields of the United States,
The ores found in these deposits are immensely rich in copper values and the cuperiferous clays that are also found here in immense beds, while not as rich,
will undoubtedly prove of great value on account of the cheapness witii which they can be mined and reduced.
The mines are accessible at every point the cost of mining will be very small, as the ore is not in hard formation and there is no deep work.
I have examined the various reports made by others, and confirm them.
». As far as I have been able to investigate, and I have done so carefully, I am of the opinion it is one of the richest copper fields in the country.
Very respectfully yours, T. BURTON EVERETT, M. E.
Mr. G. H. Savage, Mine Examiner of Butte, Montana, after gaining sample of ore from the property, says: "The ore is the richest in the country. If you have the
fleld you can pay 91,000,000 dividends per year."
Major F. M. Spaulding, of Boston, and C. F. Crosby, Esq., of Lowell, Mass., who returned June 16th from an examination of the property on behalf of the Com
pany's stockholders and intending investors, report that they found the property as represented and confirm the expert reports. They visited and examined the nine
jiines and explored the entire property.
The Company Is thoroughly organized with substantial business men in the management. It has such extensive acreage of land, rich la
copper, and so easily and cheaply mioed and converted, that dividends can be earned and paid during the current year. Now Is the time to make a
tmfe and profitable Investment, and those who take advantage of this opportunity to buy stock at the low price offered will reap the beneft.

Tiie cupriferous marl situated below the sandstone, containing 15 per cent,
of copper, can be estimated worth at the place at least 910.00 per ton, net."
From Report of George F. Rendall, Mining Engineer.
"It is a self-evident fact deducible from every report that on this property
large bodies of copper ore exists and that hundreds of tons have been shipped of
high grade ore.
That a deposit of this nature can at a very small expense be made to yield
handsome profits, from all existing reports, appears not only likely but certain."
Front Report of Francis Arthur Reall, Superintendent.
"Tins property is all right and there is all the copper you want here. I think it
is tiie best in Texas utid it seems to have been selected as such for copper. It is
near tiie top of a water shed and the hills crop out here. I think there is oil here
because there is coal. Oil lias been found at Corsicana. The property is adapted
to general farming purposes which seems to be very profitable here and a town
could be laid out on it und a railroad built to Dundee, 12 miles, to great advantage."
The Great Boom in Copper Shares.
Copper mining has proved tiie safest and most profitable industry in America,
and the largest and most conservative capitalists in the world have recently become
large investors in copper stocks.
This company can produce copper as cheaply as any in the world. It is capi­
talized the lowest of any in proportion to its acreage, and at the price of copper
bearing land in Michigan ($100 per acre) containing a much less per cent." of copper,
lias a large value in excess of its low capitalization ($2,500,000.)
Receipts for ore and assays by the leading chemists and assayers in the country
are on file in the company's offices.
The officers and directors of the company are men of the highest standing and
business capacity, and include
ill. Emery M. Low, manufacturer, mayor of Brockton, Mass., President*.
George W. Russell, Esq., paper manufacturer, Boston, Vice-President.
Maj. F. Jt. Spaulding, 2d Vice-President.
Col. Edward B. Robins, Boston, Treasurer.
Col. James. I£. Wheaton, Boston, Secretary.
Hon. Jus. W. Bennett, Fx-President Erie Telephone Co.
Only a limited amount of the stock will be sold at the price of $5.00 per share
and those wishing to secure shares should act at once. As stated the stock is full

Amount of land, quantity and quality of ore, cheapness of mining and treat­
ment, nearness to transportation, favorable climate for continuous work the year
around, the increasing demand and profit in producing copper considered, the
Boston and Texas Copper Company possesses unequalled advantages and affords the
best kind of an investment. It can easily earn 50 per cent, per year on the price at
which the stock is here offered.
