The • ! ••: r’hution of the seeds of the department will not be confined to the pug. r bi et belt that has been approximate ly mapped out by the department, but to every state and territory in the union.

Their land cannot possibly be wholly devoted to the production of the sugar cane, and In a few years they will, through necessity, be compelled to devote some of it to other products. They seem to have reached their maximum already. The United States is growing and will grow and require more and more sugar, while the Hawaiian sugar crop will decrease gradually until it will not be anything like as large us it Is at present. 1 think there fore that the production of the sugar beet cannot very well be affected by the an nexation of Hawaii and its sugar crop. When casually looking over the facts pre sented by the opponents of admission I frankly admit that I shared In the appre hension, but after going into the matter deeply and giving it careful study I am glad to say that my fears wore set at rest. “As I said before, the production of sugar beets Is destined to become one of our leading agricultural Industries. From Maine to California the people of all sec tions are Interested and they are watching the results of these tests and experiments. 1 do not believe that It will bo long before there will bo numerous sugar beet factories scattered all,over the country. There is a factory at Rome, N. A’., which Is now run ning in ful’ blast, and with a market where they can dispose of their products at hand the people In Unit section are. rapidly turn ing their attention to the production of the sugar boot. Yes, It is a great and growing Industry’’ The division of chemistry of the depart ment of agriculture is kept very busy at the present time, testing flic samples of beets that have been sent in by the farm ers of the different sections of the country. Professor II AV. Wiley, the chief of the division of chemistry, lias devoted a great deal of time and labor to the sugar l"*et Industry, ami in conversation, has the fol lowing to say of it: "The complete tests of this division of th<- department of agriculture have not yet been made, and it is therefore impossible to announce any accurate data on the sub ject. When these tests are eonipieieit, which will i><> about the middle of Deeem ber. we expect to prepare a bulletin on the subject of sugar beets as obtained from ixp -rim. nts In the United States. Although ,v.. mav profit by th. ri suits of the sugar lie.-t industry of European countres, still the climate conditions and the conditions of tli" soils, etc., of this country ar. differ ent from those of Europe, and there:..re it is impossible to apply to th’s country, only in a general way, facts obtained from other countries. "Although wo have only obtained one sample of sugar beet to be tested from the state of California, yet the Industry In that state is perhaps the most exten sive of any state in the union. ‘1 he peo ple of California have arrangements with in their own state where their beets are tested, and therefore we do not receive very many of them; but the general re sults are sent to this department for our benefit. "it lias been found by experiments that the sugar beet reaches Its highest develop ment in north temperate latitudes. So far as the production of beets with legit ton nage is concerned, it is found that th.a <an b* ■ accomplished far to the south. Hut beets grown in such localities are, upon tlie whole, less rich In sugar and less suit able for the manufacture of sugar than those grown farther north. From the in complete report of the tests of this division, 1 would say that the best beets that I have si <*n came from around .New York state, but tlie tests of the division are so incom- it it is impot sible to make a posi tive assertion, as we shall lie able to do in Hi., near future. "The sugar beet does not require any particular kind of soil for its production. I a a general way, soils are <i<*serlbi*d for practical purposes as elaye? id; luvial mils, and the exp. riments of the departments go to show that all of these soils will produce beefs. I l-dicve tli:.l thi so Is tha.t are less adapted to sugar be.-t production ar.* stiff clays, which a. cultivated w ■:. diflicult j readi ly packed mub r the influence of hard ra ns and hot. suns, and virgin soils, or tln.-e ■ . rich In organic or alk lino salt ~ best * y described a sandy loam -a soil containing a happy medium betwK n organic matters, clay and sand. "In fact, it may be sad that any soil which will produce n good crop of maize, wheat or potatoes will, under proepr culti vation nroduci a good crop of sugar bc.-is. The soil on which the b.ets are grown should be reasonably level, however, and ■di s being the case, should be well drained. It is ailvantagc >us 'dial tile drainage sliould !>■ practiced, as natural drainage on level soil is somewhat ileti i. nt. It is ilillieult , v - ;,-,r bi ets on lct‘el land wi Pout good drainage, especially in a rainy sea- “Thero is one Important thing that farm ers contemplating the growing of sugar . should und< rstand, and that Is that ft is impossible that any simple method of horn.* manufacture of le-et sugar can prove coinnierc.ally successful.

CUBA AND MONEY DISCUSSED. Cabinet Held a Two Hours’ Session Considering Annual Reports. Washington, November 19.—The cabinet was in session for two hours today, devoted largely to a discussion of the annual re ports of the different members. The more important reports from the treasury, war ami navy departments have not yet been made public ami tlie.se were given consid eration at the session today. The president also discussed various features of his mes sage. The two subjects which engaged the spe cial at :< nt ion of the cabinet were those re lating to the manner in which the Cuban problem ami the question of the. finances should be handled in the president’s mes sage. The opinion was generally expressed that the Cuban situation as it affects the United States was even more favorable than could be expected and there was especial good feeling over the release of the cr.*w of tin* Competitor. This and other <'.nccsslons were accepted as indicat ing a. genuine <l. sire on tlie part of the Sa gasta administration to meet the wishes of the authoriti**.-- of this country and bring the war to a hasty termination.

A BLACK MOB LYNCHES A CRIMINAL Josh Ruff, a Desperado, Lords It Over a Colored Community. ASSAULTS ONE OF THE WOMEN Negroes, Outraged. Organize Against Him. HIS DEAD BODY IH THE PUBLIC ROAD That Is Evidence Enough That They Got in Their Work in Due. Time. Gibson, G.a , November 15.—(Special.)—At midnight last night the citizens of the community of Sleepy Hollow, six miles from Gibson, were aroused from their slum bers by the report of a fusilade of shots. No one went to the scene of the noise until this morning, when they found a form of a human being lying in th.* public road, with its body and head punctured witli bullets and buckshot. Upon investi gation it was found to be till* remains of Josh Huff, a desp* rate outlaw who recent ly escaped from the penitentiary and had be«>n in that community for several weeks. Terrorized the Community. It Is to! ! that tho outlaw went around with several pistols and a. winch* t'*r rille, and has been knowti to held up several negroes of the Sleepy Hollow community and roll them, and he was also gu Ity of going into tlie negro houses and at tho point of h's r tie. demand Hie negroes to surrender to him their money and other valuables. Tlie negroes were afraid of Ruff, consequently they failed to say any thing about the treatment they were re ceiving at the hands of the outlaw. He Fired Eack. From the number of shots heard and from the appearance of tlie body, there must have been at least twenty In tho posse that did the killing. It Is thought that tii'.* posse consisted of il:* negroes who had been robbed by the outlaw. Ruff evidently d d some shooting while be.ng killed. There was blood in tlie road for several miles leading to the seem* of the tragedy.

The plaee. vv I<: *. the killing occurred is about tv, i and t half miles east of Fair burn, and is reached by a winding little road leading off about half a mile from the pubi c road. It is just so situated as to make it favorable for the perpetration ot the crime ai:«l ifford an escape for the mur derer, it being u small clearing entirely surrounded by d e for* sts. The three unfortunate negro* s were killed within a hundred yards of their house, and from the respective poc:ions in which they were found, it is <•*..*»>• to conclude the manner in which they met their death. The man was plowing tip potatoes, and had just turned around at one end of the row ana advanced t< n pac. s when he was shot from behind and b 11 d< id with his hands still on his plow siock. his horse having stopped and ; intil tlie crime was d ■ eo\■ red.

People living in tlie neighborhood of the kilbng heard ilr’ee reports of guns about 12 o’eloi k v. sterday- the first two In rip a succession'and the last one a minute at- .re many theories advanced as to the cause of the killing. One is that ths killing is th** work of illicit distillers, whom It 'ls sug". -**ed may have found the negro troublesome to their business: another is that It was done for the purpose of rob bery as It Is said that trunk supposed to contain money Is missing from the house, and still anothei Is that It was done by a .. . . ind ol the w..*■ . *. tlttlng het- first . band some years ago at Jonesboio.

Tlie trees hang out their sen ■ phores in gold and bronze and signa o expiring summer that they are rea< .V o surrender. Tlie roses give up the brent.t of Juno and blush like tlie clittks oi the beheaded queen before their lifeblood elms away. Tlie golden rod with sl.m and gi* l< ful staff throws out its graceful sparks and gentle showers, but the chrysanthemum o’ertops them all and makes th", last stand against. Hie onward march of wintei, a brave and stubborn protest against death and decimation. “In the midst ot tills last redoubt of summer’s sway the chrysanthemum looms up like reserves and cheers all drooping plant life. In her petals live again the heart and grace of all the Howers. The pink of spring is filtered through her bioom like warmth of peaehblow. The royal Hush of summer is incarnadined in her bosom; the rich tints ol.’ autumn are rellected in her form and feature, while with her slen der lingers she garmrs th" frost stars and plants them ’.n cushions ol driven snow. The chrysanthemum, like tie* con stellation of Arcturus, rises just before the wintry storm. It is the last burst the rocket makes before its fires all gu out; il is the splendid charge which expiring nature urges against lite blight of autumn’s legions, with all l>er banners waving and all her energies resummoned ;.nd reset.
