Itrown of North Plains has leeeived his commission as deputy game and fish warden for Ionia county, and is now prepared and anxious to have registered with him all complaints and suggestions concerning the game and lih laws. The state board of auditors has ap propriated J3,0(K) for a new boiler and boiler house at the asylum for in sane criminals at Ionia, to replace those destroyed by the explosion last month. Fred Somers has been awarded the contract for the building.

A valued friend of the Citizen writes from West Hay City in relation to the beet sugar plant there as follows: t i i. .. i. . . , . , . f i uave ueen unending Jor some weeks to write a thorough description of the beet sugar plant here and the possibilities that are open to tho farm ery of jour county. I saw last night some of tho output of the factory here, and it was as fine looking granulated sugar as I ever saw anywhere. Tho factory has been proven a great success both to the proprietors and the pro- - ducers of beets. One thing is certain, However, the soil here is far behind that of Kent for raising tho proper be?t for tho sugar market. The ground is so hard hero that the beet forces itself out of the ground and all that part above ground has to bu cut off and thrown away, whereas with your lighter sandy soil that could not hap pen. Some of the farmers in this sec tion have realized as much as $60 per acre for their land that wa9 devoted to beets this year, and I am thoroughly convinced that on a lighter soil those figures could be beaten. One factory has been found to be insufficient for tho trade that promises here another year and another one hes teen decided upon. Independent Citizen. OUU PRICES PHICFS AND THROWN IN.
