' tan T!ie Ho II f ('iitiuc-nting on the reduction of tu: price of sugar in the Missouri market, by the sugar tiust, Henry T. Oxnard. president of the American Heet Sug-ir Association. defined It as a move to errsh out beet sugar production in ei der that the trust might have no op 1osition. "If they can succeed in the Missouri Valley." said he. "they will then turn their attention to the beer sugar factories in Mk-higau and other sections, and by the power of con centrated capital crush out successive ly and individually the beet sugar pr -drcers. The trust tries to deceive the public by claiming that the beet pro ducers can still make money at the low price it is trying to establish. This Is false, and If it bad been true, then he trust would have tried to estab lish still a lower price.

Th Lap women who liro la Alaska, are proving themselves exceedingly valuable by their aptness In the man agement and care of the reindeer and Ihey are now teaching the native Alas kan tho art, if such.lt may be called. There are about a dozen reindeer tta tlonB now established in Alaska and more to follow. The natives are re quired to eerve an apprenticeship of several years at the reindeer stations. During thia time th?jr are practically taught how to manage the deer and tho making of sledges and reindeer har nes3. After tho expiration of their service the government allows each a number of deer a3 his own personal property. The total number of rein deer in Alaska at present ia 3,500, oi which some 2,000 havo been distributed to the Eskimo. The average Lap woman is a pfcturesqu3 figure. She is generally young and robuct and ten chances to one has an Infant in her characteristic 'Lapland cradle,' which 1.3 hewn out of a cc'id I03 and carried on the back by a ctrap. The wife of the chief herder is one of the most notable women of the colony. She is very Intelligent and her particular duty is to teach the Eskimo women the art of making reindeer clothing, which Is the warmest and best adapted for arctic climates. She abo Instructs them how to prepare the varlou3 food stuffs which the reindeer furnishes, such as butter, checre, and the cooking and drying of the meat. For this work she receives the same pay a3 the herd ers. She travels from station to station, where the classes of women are assem bled from the surrounding country of 100 miles or more. She then gives daily object lesaons in her domestic work and gradually the Eskimo women are taught the ways of civilization. Utlca Globe. STILL TALKING ABOUT IT. Bryant, Mo., t tt. 7th.
