WATER OVERFLOWS BEET LAND I
Farmer Around Hudson Art Having
a Hard Time This Season.
A great deal of the low land around
Hudson usually used for nt;ar beet
culture Is under water, owing to the
recent heavy rains, and from present
it dicatloiih the farmer in that section
who have contracted acreage with the
Kalamn.oo Meet Sugar company will
have a hard time of It this year. They
are having all kinds of trouble to get
help on their farm and this, together
with the fact that the ground Is so
wet that it cannot be plowed for mv
eral week yet, make the sugar beet
raising Industry around there look
as though it would be something of
a failure this year. Many farmer
are offering a month ami loard for
farm help, but this offer seem to
bring no results and In consequence
many acre of good farm land will
not be worked this season.
