BEET SUGAB. Profits nnil I'otfglhllltlcH or u Uroulng In dustry. A recent government report gives a good deal of valuable Information on the growth of the beet sugar Industry in this country , and , as the Industry Is located almost wholly nt the west , It raises the presumption that the western farmer may be freed from the thrnlidom of the two staples , corn nnd wheat , which has been fatal to that diversi fied agriculture which Is the most remunera tive form of successfully carrying on the business of tilling the soil. As the United States produces now less than one-sixth of the sugar its people con sume and vastly more wheat and corn than Is consumed at home. It would seem , says the Chicago Record , that the sugar Industry would offer special Inducements to the west ern farmer. Beet sugar has been made In the United States for the past fifteen years , the Initial manufactory being located at Alvarado , Cal. , and It is still in operation. Since then works have been established at other points In California , In Nebraska , Utah and Vir ginia. It was not until 1SS7 that beet sugar be came much of a factor In our domestic com merce , In which ycur the product was 600,000 pounds. Since then the Industry has very rapidly developed , aa the following fig ures will show : Pounds. Pounds. 1SS7 CUO.OOO , 1S91 12,001,0 * ) tt.88 1,000.000 ; 1M2 117,033,288 ISM ; . O.OUU.OCW IS93 < 43,618.73 ? IfOO 8,003,000 Of the entire amount produced In 1S93 34,020,439 pounds were the product of Cali fornia manufactories. The Interesting feature of this exhibit Is that the acreage devoted to the growth of beets to supply the seven manufactories In 1S93 was 20,000 and the average price paid the farmer for the raw material was $1.50 per ton. While the product of Hie sugar cane is said to bo limited to about 1,000,000 pounds annually , owing to the restricted area In which cane can be profitably grown , the area capable of producing the sugar beet is practically unlimited. It is true that some soils will produce beets yielding a larger jier cent of saccharine matter than others , yet any good soil can produce boots from which sugar , can bo profitably made. It wquld seem that' the production of beets for sugar in this country is the solution of the question as to the plethora of arlcultural products In our ow'n markets , the consequent depression of which causes the American farmer to complain. His products are bulky , costly to'transport and can bo put practlca'.ly Into only two condensed forms cattle and flour and these are also expensive to trans port. The machinery reiulred to successfully raise beets Is not expensive , nor Is the labor hard or constant. The Industry Is growing nnd farmers should use every effort to encourage It. A POLISH CUSTOM. KIoincntB of Success In an Kngngcnicnt Ceremony. There nre mnny phnses of life In Buffalo , says the Express , which nro hidden from those whose vocations do not call them to every quarter of Buffalo. Each locality hns Its distinctive form of amusing di vergences from the well known American nnd English customs , but none Is so pro lific , perhaps , In qucrr customs , ns "I.lttle Poland. " It was the pleasure of an Express reporter a day or two ngo to be pit-sent at the celebration of the engagement of a young Polish couple , the festivities being held In one of the numerous east side halls , whose particular habitat IH In thnt section over which Captain Koehler holds sway as chief police officer. There were assembled In the hall about 200 young Poles , with their parents nnd chnperons , although the place had not ac commodation for more than u quarter of that number. The young folks who were the renter of Intel est stood under n chan delier In the center nnd their best friends stood grouped around them. They had joined hands when the father of the gaudily dressed , prospective bride stood over them with n ghtss with the foam of the beer it contained running down Its sides. He ut tered some mystic words In Polish nnd the brldo drew her skirts.carefully about her , nnd the gloss , beer and all was sent s-m-ish to the lloor. This was considered a sign of good luck nnd that the youngcouple will be prolific In their newly acquired state , nnd everybody rushed to the center congratu lating and Ulpslng the now blushing couple. Hud the glass not been broken It would have been regarded as u sure sign that the mar- rlago was not ordained In heaven and that the divine blessing would be denied the principals and their offspring. It would have been a matter for profuse weeping on the part uf both the young matt nnd wonmn. The parents who had before been wreathed III smiles would have become the stern oreututes so often noticed In the stories of the present day , and there would have been tribulation all around. The man's parents would have been Just as adverse to the union an were those of the woman , but In the circumstances related the augury was a happy one nnd the wedding Is not far oft. The pieces of broken pluss were carefully swept together , washed and placed In a satin-lined box , to become n priceless treas ure In the new family , I.hrry Stitlilo Destroyed by 1'lro.

THEY ARE BASE IMITATORS Modem Pushers of the Qneor a Bltlr"on the Profession , INGENIOUS WORK WITH PEN AND INK Present Uny Counterfeiters t ml Differ from Tlumo uf n ( letienitloii ABU Notes Dnnvn nml Culurcil by Ilniiil. The projectors and operators of the prl- vato mint In Omaha nre counterfeiters In name only. Beyond the making uf the die , there Is no skill required to turn out maver ick sliver coin. Their product Is supposed to be genuine so far as the quantity and quality of the material are concerned , nnd the profits come from the difference between the bullion and fiat value of the coin. The mint is a profitable snap , requiring only ordinary skill and no great amount of shrewd planning or endurance. The up to date system of competing with the govern ment differs from that of a generation ago , Say what ono may , there Is always an ele ment of romance attached to the tales of the old-time coiners and counterfeiters They did not waste their time In photo graphing ono bill and laboriously working It up with pen and colored Ink , nnd as for turning out lead nickels and pewter quar ters , they would sooner have gone to a police court than soil their hands with such humiliating work , The Ballards , Brockways , Doylcs nnd Smyths of twenty and thirty years ago were Intelligent , capable rogues. What they set out to do they did well. Despising small work , they turned their attention to en graving $500 notes and $1,000 bonds , and Imi tating the fiber paper of the government How well they did their work Is n matter of history , and that such desperate and daring criminals exist no more , to plot and plan their big schemes , must bo regarded as a triumph for the secret service bureau of the treasury department , which has sup pressed them , root and branch. No country , probably , has ever produced such an adroit counterfeiter ns Brockway , unless It bo our own , which matches him In Tom Ballard. William E. Brockway Is now an old and reformed man , and , per haps , It Is unkind to recall his misdeeds. Stilt , a person who could organize a band capable in one single venture of floating nearly $250,000 of United States 6 per cent coupon and registered bonds , and when cap tured surrendered some $100,000 In superbly executed national bank notes of large de nomination , naturally suggests himself when the subject of counterfeiting Is under dis cussion. Although , as hns'nlready been stated , the men and methods of these old-time counter feiters have passed away and given place to humbler Imitators , the work of these latter Is not without Interest. Take , for Instance , says the New York Herald , the photo-pen artist , who turned out a few days ago a $100 treasury note. Among those persons who are more or less familiar with counterfeiters , the new Imita tion was of great Interest. This is because It Is the first bill of the kind ever counter feited , because the process Is entirely new , and also because it Is thought to be the im proved work of a sly rogue whose opera tions have perplexed the treasury officials for some years past. The photo-pen process Is supposed to be the work of an Individual known as the "pen and Ink" artist , who heretofore has 'confined his efforts exclusively to turning out bills by the toilsome labor of drawing them with the pen , using Ink of various colors for the work. At one time It was thought that he could , , not producq more than two of these bills a year , later on the period was reduced to 'six weeks , and now It js believed that by the as sistance of photography he will be able to re duce the time required for the execution of n $100 bill to about two weeks , which makes very poor wages for a man evidently talented , who runs great risks In earning his liveli hood. So far as can be ascertained , the pen and ink artist has turned out In all about twenty bills. Among those which have reached the Treasury department are four or five 20's , a few 50's and but two $100 notes. , Prior to the bill of the last denomination already referred to , there reached the Treas ury department about a month ago another treasury note of the series of 18SO. This did not pass In through a subtreasury , but was sent direct by a bank , which had received It In the ordinary cour&o of business. All these pen and Ink counterfeits are evi dently the work of an expert draftsman or artistic penman , who works with the aid of n high power magnifying glass. At first sight the notes look remarkably well , ns can be In ferred from the facts that so many of them get into circulation , and that the artist has never yet been Identified. They will not , however , bear a close inspection , nnd have never been known to deceive the expert tellers of the New York subtreasury. Speaking of the experts Mr. Maurlco Muhlo- man , the deputy assistant treasurer at the New York subtreasury , said recently that not In his recollection had ono been caught on a counterfeit bill. So familiar have they become - come tor the feeling of the genuine fiber pa per upon which the government money Is printed that the difference between the spur- } ous and the real Is rather a matter of a nice discrimination of touch than of anything else. If a note feels peculiar It Is tossed aside for a further examination , which rarely ever falls to disclose a counterfeit. The difficulty of securing or Imitating the fiber paper of the government hns had ns much to do probably with minimizing coun terfeiting as nny other one cause. Brock- way , to bo sure , secured or manufactured a largo quantity of the paper. How he obtained it was never revealed to- the public , but ono of the conditions upon which ho was released from prison was that he should reveal the secret to the govern ment. Tlmt ho did so Is proven by the fact that he was never prosecuted for his lust and most stupendous crime , the bond coun terfeiting , and also since that date , 1880 , no counterfeits on paper containing the Bilk fiber have ever appeared. The only thing that has been left to the forgers In this respect Is the Imitation of the red and blue threads with a deft touch of colored Ink with a brush , or by printing them on the paper before the main Im pression Is taken. Falling to secure a supply of the paper , ono counterfeiter , It Is recorded , having an extensive knowledge of chemistry , was nblo to discover a preparation which he used to wash off all the printing upon the surfaces of $1 United States notes , thus supplying the paper for counterfeits of larger de nominations. This method furnls'ici ? the paper but Im paired the surface so that a good Impres sion of the spurious bill was rendered ex ceedingly difficult. Tlmt It did Jiot glvo success It was tried by Pctu.McCnrtney Is prqven by the fact that no one else has resorted to It. , To the difficulty of securing- good paper Is duo the alteration of small notes Into those of larger denominations , which Is now most extensively practiced. At times this work Is exceedingly well done. The methods of , raising notes are as numerous as they are Ingenious and Interesting. Great assistance is rendered the raiser of notes by .the geometrical lathe work , figures , words , the. , which are found upon Internal revenue stamps , both for spirits and cigars and to bacco. Oddly enough , In nearly every Instance thu Ink used .In printing these latter Is Identical with that of the notes. They are removed deftly , cut out and pasted pml pressed so neatly as to almost defy detec tion. It | s a very strange thing , but never theless true , that but few men can carry In their minds an accurate description of it bill that Is. the arrangement of the vig nette and whom It represents , and the dis position of the numerals upon the reverse of the note , The raisers of bills from a lower to a higher denomination bear tils ) , fact , ' well In mind , and It Is of thu greatest possible aid to them In passing the money , So remark ably Ignorant nro many Americans of the money In circulation that Bomo of the alter- cr do not change anything but the donomU nation of the bill which appears In largo words or numerals. Thus an altered note may appear with small "ones" scattered all over It , and the 'AM. - , . ' tfSC . tJL changed portrait , > ot some unknown Indi vidual , and from ihe fact that the most prominent numcnlla , words and characters nro " 10. " "Ten" ami "X , " pass In n hurry for n bill of the hitter denomination. This may seem almost ) Incredible , but can bo easll verified. Of course the panting on qf numerals , etc. , without the altering of other words or portraits traits , arc comparatively crude efforts at counterfeiting. Experts nt nllnnlng bills nml there nro mnny such-'go much further , nnd by mentis nnd devices known < only to themselves turn out some really iremarkable productions , turning Mnrthn Washlngtons Into Thomas Jeffersons ; Admiral Farraguts for Llncolns , nnd performing numerous other miracles with a deftness that seems worthy of a bet ter cause. They do not hesitate , for Instance , to mutilate , In part , a bill of large denomina tion , using the material to raise n note of small value , and securing the redemption of the damaged bill nt the subtreasury. Chief urummond has nt his ollleo , It Is said , what looks to much like a $10 silver certllldate that not one man In a thousand would hcsltuto accepting It. U Is , In reality , only n dollar bill , expertly altered. The bg ! figure , Indicating the denomination , Is In each case replaced by an X removed from a rcnl $10 bill In the manner described above. The numeral , together with the oval bit of lathe work , cut from a $10 certificate , was pasted on and worked over nnd over with n metal Instrument , until It , seems ns though It were part of the bill Itself , leaving no traces of demarcation to the naked eye. In like manner , fllver certificates of $1 anil $2 are among the Impounded articles raised to $3 and $20. Treasury notes of $1 nre raised to $10 , nnd old $1 national bank notes transformed Into $50 , The alteration of notes rarely extends beyond the latter de nomination , and , of course , In addition to the counterfeiter's 'trust In the Ignorance of the public , he seeks to crumple and soil the bill at much as possible to further conceal his work. The development of photography , photo engraving , process work nnd other forms of engraving nbout this time caused the officials of the secret service considerable alarm , which , however , has not been justified by the results. Such work as has been turned out Is not calculated to deceive , the Impressions nrc not sharp , the fine lines blur and the whole appearance of the counterfeits is poor. Tlio work of the geometrical lathe has never been successfully imitated but once In the history of counterfeiting In this country , and then by Smyth , the engraver of Brock- way's gang , who wa-j credited with doing some of the finest work by hand ever seen In this country. Mystery Surriiniiiling mi Injured Mnn. GRAND ISLAND , April 28. ( Special Tele gram to The Bee. ) The police authorities were notified of a strange case today.
