The industrial department of the
Norfolk and Western railroad is trying
to Induce the farmers of Jefferson
county to grow sugar beets. A meet.
In* was held at the court house in
Charles Town the other day. The chief
talk was made by Dr. C. O. Townsend.
of the Bureau of Agriculture, Washington.
He explained all about beet
growing from the time the preparation
I of the seed bed is started, through the
period when the tiny, delicate leaves
of the plant show above the surface
of the ground, the thinning, and the
cultivation of the plants;'the digging,
the various procosses to which the
beets are subjected in the course of
conversion into sugar at the mill.
Experiments with sugar beet culture
in the Sbenandoah Valley had
convinced the department, Dr. Townsend
asserted, that beets can be grown
I in almost any Boil that will produce
wheat and corn. The vlqld here Ib
from 12 to 18 tons to the acre. At
present the sugar mills are paying
uduui seven aouars a ton tor them.
In addition to the income obtained
tram the sale of the beets, the grower
has two important by-products that
are valuable in the dairy or live stock
Industry. These are the beet tops and
: the pulp which furnish excellent stock

According to the writer's own
story a very great injustice Is about
to be done to an innocent man, which
ho seeks to avoid by a change of
