The Scotts Bluff Sugar factory which last week started Its sugar beet acreage on tracts received all It could handle In Just one dat- and a half 22,000 acres and lr it was ame to take caro of any more might have secured an ad ditional amount of some 5,000 acres. This Is a fact of which the county takes con siderable pride, as none of the table, land has been under cultivation for more than three years, and 1911 only 12,000 acres was available. An Idea of what can bo ex pected with reasonable weather this year Is gained from the fact that last year, the second season of cultivation, tho Scotts Bluff Sugar company used on an average of 1,600 tons a day. A new sugar beet company Is to be established In either Balrd or Scotts Bluff this sprlnar to caro for the rapidly growing culti vation of the beet."

March 10.-(Spe-chit.) One of tho most t..inue plants In the country or In the world, nnd prac tically the only plant of Its kind Ifi exist ence, Is what Is known as the pine cono plant of the forest service of tho United States government In this city. Tho plant was consructed for the purpose of ex tracting the seeds from plno cones, for the use of tho forest service In the Black Hills and elsewhere where It Is desired to reforest areas where forest fires have traversed or that havo been rendered barren through careless lumbering, or even for starting a growth of plno trcci on government land In the federal forest reserve llniiRhl nlRht Thoimnnd llimlieln. Last fall Supervisor R. P. lmes of the Black Hills forest reserve, with head quarters here, purchased nn aggregate of S.fOo bushels of western yellow pine cones from the settlers living In the forest reserve or ndjacent thereto, many of whom derived comfortable Incomes from tho sale of the cones. From these 8,000 bushels of cones about 11,000 pounds of clenn pine seeds have been obtained, at nn npproxlmate cost of 60 cents per pound. The work of extracting the seed was In progress about three months, and tho work required three shifts of men, working eight hours a shift, Inasmuch as the process requires that constant care nnd ottentlon bo given the" cones under treatment. The work divides itself Into four distinct parts: opening tho scnles of thefcones; threshing the seed out of tho cones; getting the wings loosened from the seed: and separating tho seeds from tho pulverized wings and other debris. Ono crew comes on nt 8 o'clock In tho morning nnd works until 4 p. m.: the next crew then works until midnight, when what Is known ns tho graveyard crew works from then until 8 o'clock tha next morning. Ue Klin In Winter. During the early fall when the weather was warm, outdoor threshing was used to some extent, but ns the climate bo comes too cold for this qulto early In this attitude, kiln threshing Is the prev alent method used. Tho kiln consists of an airtight room, fifty feet long, ten feot wide and about that high, with wide swinging doom at each end. An average temperature of 110 degrees Fahrenheit Is maintained in the kiln by means of steam driven Into It from a boiler. The cones are placed upon wlro mesh trays, which are piled one above another upon little cars, to be pushed Into tho kiln on steel rails. The kiln holds ten cars at ono time nnd each car holds fifteen bushels, so that 160 bushels aro being treated at one time. Every time a year Is taken out nt one end, a fresh loWl of "raw" cones Is pushed In at tho other. After remaining under tho Intense heat about thirty to thirty-six hours tho scales of the cones open nnd allow the seeds to fall out. When completely opened, tho cones are then placed In a revolving cylinder, propelled by nn engine, and by fitting thus moved about the tiny seeds are separated from the cone. The cylinder has one end slightly lowered, so that the cones nnd seed move laterally, but about two feet from the end of the cylinder the cones pass over a one-half Inch mesh wire cloth, which allows the seed to drop out. IJp Co nr fo Purl. The "husked" cones are then procured by the people, who use them for fuel. Owing to their pitchy nature, they make an excellent and yet a somewhat dan gerous article or kindling. Tha seed and cl(aff are run through the agitator, a purely local Invention, which consists of four paddles, tipped with leather, whloh brush the seeds around against the tin sides of the vessel until tho tough wings are broken loose; then tho whole Is run through the fanning mill to eradicate the wing fragments. The clean seed Is then sacked, ready for shipment. From the seed obtained the past fall, enough will be retained to plant 609 acres on the Harney Peak forest reserve near this city, while the remain der Is being shipped to various other forests throughout the west. From the success obtained this year In producing seed nt r much lower cost than ever before, It Is certain that a new nnd permanent Industry has been established In the Black Hills,- where the supply of cones Is practically unlimited. One, sign that points towards the growth of tho pine seed extracting business Is the fact that large areas in the Black Hills and other national forests will soon need extensive reseedlng. WESTERN ROADS WILL , ABOLISH PARTY 'RATES After March 15 there will be no party ries grunted between the Missouri river nnd Chicago. This Is the decision of the Woatern Passenger associations, In tho past parties of fifteen or more havo been able to secure a rate below the regular tariff made to apply on a single ticket. In the future, members of parties, regardless of size, will pay the regular one person rate. At the same meeting railroad laborers' rates were abolished, except over the lines on which they are to be employed. In the past laborers to be employed on any road were sent out over any other road, the fare being much below the regular tariff. relieve your torpid liver and constipated bowels of all the sour bile, gasc and clogged-up waste which Is producing the misery.

CATHARTIC A Night in Karlstein is Presented at Tel Jed Sokol Club Rooms The Bohemian brunch of Uveal socialist gave an Interesting melodrama Sunday night nt tho Tel Jed Hokol club. Thero wns a large audience, nnd tht.se familiar with the tongue spoken onjoyul It thor oughly. The piny was entitled "A Night In Karlstein," nnd Karl IV. emperor of Austria and Bohemia In the fourteenth century, wns the leading character. It seems thnt ho had caused a mngnlfleciit palnce to bo erected, nnd ono of the reg ulations wos that women were not per mitted to be within Its walls after sun down. This even applied to lb? emperor's wife, who had to spend her rights In the adjoining structures. After a while she tires of these ie strlctlons nnd contrives to hide herstlf and make her appearance after the gates had closed. She Is discovered by the archbishop, who advises her to take on tho garb of n page until morning, when sho would hnvo ft chance to escape with out notice. She accordingly follows hl. advice, but a visiting prince suspects hei ns a woman of unusual beauty and trlus to makn lovo to her. He falls after re peated trials, and then to nvengo him self relKjrls to the emperor, who cnlU for tho page and recognizes hti wife. However, ho hides his knowledgo of her Personality and arranges to make her comfortable, until morning, when she must return to the outside. Tho whole story Is ono that displays tho emperor's ability to forglvo and still lovw his wife after sho had rather foolishly violated one it IiIb most sacred mandates.
